SWTOR: Catch-All

Boosts are absolutely traps in mmo's. Sure they have their perks but they can actually be rage quit inducing.
I've often found that should you run into difficulties playing the boosted class, starting an alt and playing it for the first 40 levels or so with help clear up rotations, role and capabilities.

Another way to use them is as money farming if you chose a class to boost poorly. (unfun or underperforming)

As a pvp player i find them a good shortcut. Jump into some matches and you have a basic understanding of the mechanics and how to chain them together to get your rotations down. Take lessons learned from there and apply them to the pve content. Doing the starting planets over and over again isn't fun either.

Someone brand new to the game or only dabbled at the beginning and not remembering the basics i'd suggest a new character to start with.

Yeah that's another reason I want to throw $5 at being preferred instead of just subscribing outright.

The only thing I did way back in beta was one of the starting planets up to fleet. The same thing I did last weekend but almost 9 years ago? I've got a lot to learn.

Taking at least one character through the story before I tempt myself with skipping everything and doing 60+ content. Trying to enjoy the journey.

But with storage vault access.

I'm very shocked by how dated the design of these beginning areas feel. The dialogue makes up for it though.

Do the boosts get you any Legacy unlocks, or do you have to hit the current level cap to get those?

Is anyone here still a subscriber that would like to share a referral link? Not sure if I'm going to sub but it'd be nice to get the couple of bonuses . I'd rather use someone here's in case I sub rather than some random person on the internet.

Anybody?

Got to the Imperial capital yesterday. Finally set up Legacy name, even though I got a notice about that when I hit 10. Got my Stronghold apartment thingy, and wasted a lot of time setting that up. Reminds me of City of Heroes supergroup bases. I guess lots of MMOs do some player housing. Convenient to jump and sell if my inventory ever got full. Hopefully back to the main quest today while I have some time off.

Friend link

I just re-upped recently to get access to the last 2 xpacs.

Another Friend Link.

I play on Star Forge and am in the Alea Iacta Est guild.

Oh yeah so apparently it didn't work for me. I'm in account limbo. I had a beta account, and got some in game rewards for that, annual gifts and such. So I can't use a friend code for a brand new account. But also even though I have a 9 year old account or something because I have never been a subscriber I can't use the code for those bonuses either. Bah.

Thanks though. I guess if I have enough fun to give them $15 at some point I'll try a code after that.

Right now the most annoying thing is only 2 crew skills. But using a referral code gets you that 3rd skill as an account unlock for preferred. That's what I was after. Oh well.
