I'm thinking about maybe getting this game, but I just want to know: Do you really have to play with other people? I've always liked being a lone-wolf sort of deal, unless playing with real life friends.

You can very easily play alone. Just skip the heroic quests (although honestly some of them can be soloed).

The heroic quests are like those... flashpoints or something? I've watched some Achievement Hunter videos on those, so yea I'd probably skip some due to the intense bosses.

Heroic quests are just quests intended for groups of people :)

Like Tripsis said, you can very easily play solo. I'm lvl 23 or 24 now (it's been a long day lol) and the greater majority I've done solo.

Ok cool. I bought the game, installed it over night and am about to start it. I'm thinking of going with the Trooper class, which I'd assume means I'd be tanking a lot?

Yeah Trooper is a range tank class, which is quite interesting :P

Troopers themselves are ranged, but the Vanguard advanced class is pretty much a close range class. They have a few 30m abilities, but the majority are sub 10m. If you want to be range then you should pick the Commando advanced class when it comes to the choice. To put it down simply, the two advanced classes. Vanguard is mid/close range Tank/DPS and Commando is Ranged DPS/Healer.

The game is rather laggy for me :S, ESPECIALLY indoors. (god help me if I need to go up a ramp indoors) I have 7 gb of ram, which I'd assume to be plenty for this game, so I'm guessing it's my graphics card (I'm not good with computer tech >.>) or processors. But otherwise, I quite like the game.

I have 8GB of RAM (and I even played on another computer with only 4GB) and it runs perfectly fine. So yeah, it's probably a good guess that it's your graphics card. That's really the most important component for games.

I can get 15-20 fps with an i3 laptop with integrated hd-3000 graphics. I'd assume your computer is really old then.

Most definitely need a new graphics card. Trying to turn on Coruscant is a nightmare.

SWTOR Classes Chart

^ I found that when I first started SWTOR and it was super helpful in figuring all the classes out.

I mostly pvp, and ive noticed that the classes to watch out for are the ranged dps'ers. Especially with the gunslingers/ops with their stealth/heal abilities it seems close to impossible to kill them off even AFTER the several nerfs lol.



The games great up to 50. Storylines are cool, cutscenes are awesome, the classes are pretty fresh compared to other mmo's, etc. What I noticed though is that the game REALLY lacks in endgame content. 3 pvp warzones (huttball ROCKS) got old really fast but grinding 60 valor probably didnt help. I think the games real strength is that because of all the different story lines you can reroll as new classes and the game still feels different every time.


I dont play as much as I was over winter break but if anybody wants to play with me heres the server im on and everything :)

Server: The Maw

Republic Side Toons:

lvl 20 (at time of writing this) Trooper Commando named Nashville

Empire Side Toons:

lvl 50 Assassin named Georgia

lvl 25 Bounty Hunter Powertech named Jimi

Looking at your chart, I would have assumed the Sith would be more popular then the Republic, not the other way around. Interesting.

yeah to be honest I dont agree with that imp to pub ratio they have since Ilum is basically 10 imps for every 1 pub lol.... but the class descriptions and all is pretty good for somebody starting out.

So, being a Commando at level 17, I finally realized "Hey, there are Commando-specific skills at the trainer!" and unlocked them... derp. The healing drone makes this game quite a bit easier. :grin: I also started a Sith Warrior (now Marauder), and am enjoying that as well. The space combat bits are pretty cool. :thumbup:

I did the same thing around the same lvl on my Jedi Sentinel. I originally had pick random crew skills that sounded interesting but ended up switching to artifice, archaeology, and treasure hunting.

I wish it was cheaper to learn speeder piloting, though I really wish I paid for it rather then a bunch of other skills that ended up being junk.. So much walking..

Yeah biochem all the way! :thumbsup: When I started out it was the only one that actually seemed beneficial. I learned from other games that making your own armour/weapons/etc. usually never turned out to be that helpful or profitable. Obviously I couldn't say for certainty that would be true with SW:TOR, but I think I made a good choice with biochem.

I don't know if anyone still plays, I know I don't, I quit after my 3 month subscription expired, but it's been announced that the game is going F2P up to lvl 50.

Here is an exert from the press release,

Starting this fall, there will be two different ways to play Star Wars: The Old Republic:

  • Subscription – A service designed for players who want unrestricted access to all the game features via ongoing subscription or by redeeming a Game Time Card. In addition to gaining access to all game content as our current subscribers do now, Subscribers will receive ongoing monthly grants of Cartel Coins*, the new virtual currency that will be introduced later this fall. Cartel Coins can be used to purchase valuable items including customizable gear and convenience features that will enhance the game play experience.
  • Free-to-Play –The first 50 levels will be free-to-play, with some restrictions on access to new content and advanced player features. Some restrictions can be “unlocked” with Cartel Coins.


To read the full press release, you can follow the link. http://www.swtor.com...elease/20120731

What do guys think this will mean for SWTOR? Will it solve it's problems?
