Belsavis is planet designed by two devs, one sober and one blitzed. "OK, now here we have a green forest..""ICE AND SNOW EVERYWHERE!" "Now it's a prison planet so let's restrict movement a bit..""YEAH AND MAKE A TRAVEL THINGY SEPARATE FROM THE MAIN TRAVEL THINGY!"

Voss is a planet where they assume you have Speeder Piloting III because, brother there's a lot of brown grass to drive over.  Oh and a bridge that you have to go out of your way to cross between the quest areas and the crafting areas.

Tatooine is my favorite for layout.  I admit I do like driving my speeder over the Dune Sea, up and down the dunes.

Yeah the colors are definitely killing my eyes.
It was only salvaged by the merc companion I got there.
Otherwise, just do the story quest and gtfo. That planet is just a giant bright snowball.

The two new planets, Risha and Yavin 4 are great.  Risha for the cool town and Yavin 4 for everything.  I actually wished there was more I could do in Risha's town.

It's about time! Back to TOR, y'all.

I don't recall if it was on this forum or another one, but someone had a little mini-guide of "things to do" when leveling anew in TOR. I remember something about legacy bonuses and rocket boots. Does any of that apply if your highest level character was like 32?

Cool, gonna finish my last story line.

The "things to do" basically advised you to spend your Cartel coins (you get some each month if you subscribe) wisely, namely on account-wide inventory unlocks, +41 crystal, utility consoles (mail, GTN) for your ship, and cooldown reductions on the travel powers.  Also, a cheap speeder from the GTN.

As someone who's only played in beta, if I started and signed up for one month would I get that bonus permanently, and would it last after my subscription ended?

Got it thanks. Still interesting though, the travel times and the filler were the main problems for me back when I played.

Also they sell a "rocket boots" ability, which is essentially a 12s sprint that can be used indoors. It costs like 400 spacebucks for the base ability, with a 90s cooldown, then another 150 spacebucks to drop it to a 60s cooldown, and an additional 150 to drop it to only 30s. So 700 spacebucks to get it all the way down to a 30s cooldown. That will help a ton in leveling.

Check out this bundle. If you do the math, it's a no-brainer. Two months sub is $30 alone, and you need to sub to get the 12x XP.

Update: This time 12x is even better than last time.


-Reduced cooldown on travel powers

-You get much more commendations as you level, to keep you properly geared.

Apparently even old players with accounts can get referral benefits (both ways). Does anybody want to give me their referral link?

I actually made an attempt to install this today, but my account has an authenticator that is on an old phone I no longer use. Not interested enough to bother dealing with CS.

Unless you had a max level character before, just start a new account with someone's referral code so you get the free bonus bag of goodies. No biggie. You already passed the biggest hurdle downloading the goddamn thing.

I've had to call them twice in the past and they picked up immediately both times. It might be worth it, maybe?

Actually I called SWTOR support awhile back too. I got an email "You tried to reset your password", when I hadn't. Even though I hadn't played SWTOR since 2011, I called them and changed it. They did pick up right away, it was a pleasant experience.

The 12x XP is *not* permanent, it will end in the fall. Probably right around the time of the next large content expansion.

Nice! I assumed it was like Blizzard and I would need to send in a DNA sample along with a recommendation from Congress. Patching. Where is everyone congregating?

Noticed that the 12x was for subs only. Then got in game and found out the character I wanted to play (which was named after my son) needs to be renamed. Fuck it. I am out.
