So, inspired by Kiive's "Let's make sure we aren't chasing a red-flutterplume" comment that would, be the equivalent of "wild goose chase", I was wondering if others would like to contribute to building up a collection of SWTOR idioms and similies...

sneaky as a sand-bat?
ugly as a womp-rat?

I'll even sticky the thread so we can easily find it, even in the middle of an rp!

Like a gizka in a nexu nest.

Meaning: Expressing helplessness surrounded by enemies; sort of akin to 'like a mouse in a lion's den'.

My drawing was not of a hat.
It was of a boa constrictor digesting an elephant.

Please make sure you explain your idioms! They might not seem as obvious to everyone else!

I just used one in the Blackfox story thread, where my musician declares she's going to "rock this place harder than Makeb." Anyone who's played through Makeb in-game, or knows roughly the deal with it, will get it. :)

Pulled that one out of my butt, thought it sounded cliché, glad to see someone liked it, lol.

"Lightning before Thunder."

Imperial military maxim regarding the deployment of Sith before the Soldiers.
Used this one a few times on Ralakan, often sarcastically and directed aggressively to Sith. Another way of saying "You first", "Go for it" or "Your move."

"beskar battleship."

Equivalent Meaning: Rice rocket. Sounds and looks like a good idea or it'll tear up a space battle but effectively it's an overpriced waste of engineering (even for Mandos, making a battleship completely out of beskar is a dumb idea. >.>)
Heads up! Most of my roleplay is done over Discord!

Hit me up there if you're keen!
Check profile for plot.

"Red Herring" was what I was going for, actually. xD
