Top 10 Leveling Tips in SWTOR I Recommend
Hello, Iím Zmurkz and I have some tips for faster leveling in the new MMORPG,
ĎStar Wars: the Old Republicí created by BioWare.
Now before I start, if you would like to know more about the game, or maybe
purchase it for yourself then go to the official
SWTOR Website. Make sure to regularly
check this website for the latest news on the game.
Here are my top 10
1. When starting your Star Wars adventure you will need to choose a class. Make
sure to choose a class that interests you. Although this may seem obvious, I
thought it would be a good idea to point out that your choice should not be
affected by other peopleís opinions. donít be put off by what other people say.
Ignore all that, choose what you want to, itís your adventure! If you want to be
a Bounty Hunter, be a Bounty Hunter! If youíre the class you want to be you will
enjoy the game a lot more and thatís what games are all about in the end,
2. Always do the bonus quests. Bonus quests are a great way to get more XP while
youíre doing the normal game quests. Most quests in the game involve some sort
of bonus quest and you should always try to complete it. Never begin any quest,
bonus or otherwise if the quest is grey in your quest log as this will give no
XP and will be a waste of time.
3. Along with Bonus quests make sure to always do the bonus series. Every planet
(except the starter planets) has a bonus series and they should be completed.
Unless, like I said earlier, the quests are grey.
4. Always do the Companion quests. Each Class receives 6 companions throughout
their adventure, each one can be spoken to and each one has their own mini story
line to complete. If a companion has a quest above there head always complete it
straight away for some easy experience. Also, use a companion that suits your
morale choices. For example, if Iím playing an evil dark side Sith Warrior and
using Vette as my companion I wonít get a lot of affection with Vette as my dark
side decisions constantly clash with her personality. However if I chose a
different companion, I may gain affection a lot quicker because they would agree
with my personal decisions in my story and be able to complete more companion
quests for more XP.
5. Always try to log out in a cantina for rested XP. Rested XP is a mechanic
used in many MMORPGs and it will reward you with double experience when you log
back in. The length of the double XP buff is dependent on how long you are
logged out in a cantina.
6. Every player in SWTOR has the ability to ĎQuick Travelí. Quick Travel is a
game mechanic that is very similar to World of Warcraftís Hearthstone ability.
Quick Travel allows you to teleport to any location in the game (as long as
youíre on the correct planet) provided you have accessed that specific quick
travel terminal. Always use the quick travel ability instead of walking when the
ability is available as it will decrease your traveling time and lead to faster
7. Donít do the heroic quests. The heroic quests are not worth your time because
the XP gained isnít enough to justify the time you put into it.
8. From the beginning of the game, make sure to save up for your speeder
training and vehicle. The 3 speeder training abilities can be unlocked at level
25, 40 and 50 respectively. Level 25 speeder training will cost you 35000
credits, on top of this you will also have to pay around 10000 for your vehicle.
Make sure to sell all your junk items to vendors as you level up your character
in order to gain credits towards your training and vehicle.
9. When choosing a quest reward make it a necessity to choose gear that is best
for you first. If there is no gear that is better than what you currently have
equipped then either choose something that is better for your companion or
choose a planet commendation as these commendations can be spent and will reward
you and your companion with good gear.
10. The final tip is an obvious one. You can skip conversations to increase your
leveling speed, of course this will make you miss out on a lot of the gameís
stories and therefore I only recommend this if you are familiar with the gameís
stories. Another option would be to skip all conversations except your class
story quests as these are, in my opinion the best stories the game has to offer.
