Consular or Knight for older padawan?

I wan to RP a jedi that would have been an adult during the sacking of coruscant. Which class works better for that lorewise?


Stuck at verifying

Can someone please help me? My launcher is stuck at verifying, i already tried to use the repair tool and to delete the BitRaider file, but nothing works! Is there any solution that is not re-istaling the game? Its really hard for me to download the


Wondering what became of a certain companion (no, not that one)...

**Spoilers!** By now all class story companions have returned, save for Zenith who is all but confirmed to return in the next update. And yet there is still one last companion missing. Im talking about >!Zash!< if you chose her over >!Khe

Fall of the Sith Empire

The game is currently in the year 3630 BBY, and we know that in 2000 BBY Darth Ruin established the New Sith Empire, but we dont know when the current Sith Empire was defeated. Do you think we will eventually see the fall of the Sith Empire in the ga

Do the imperial and republic onslaught stories co exist with each other like Makeb?

I havent got up to jedi under siege and onslaught yet. But without spoiling things, should they be able to co exist with each other similar to the makeb storyline? Edit: so judging from the responses it looks like its a no. Thought the allaince woul


Do alliance alert romances do anything?

What gear can you use the amp En Garde on?

I can not find it in the list of any of the left side stuff (ear, implants etc.). As for right side gear, I can only find it on some gear pieces, which seems weird to me. Fx. I can not find it on Decent of the Fearless nor on Rapid Response Safeguard

Would people be interested in another Guides and Builds Website for SWTOR?

Like the title says would anyone be interested in a new/another website for guides and builds for SWTOR? I have some idea's if there is interest.


Is armor weight affecting companion ability to tank?

I'm not sure if something changed in 6.0 but all my comps that normally use light armor feel paper thin when tanking, while heavy armor ones perform as before. Technically armor is just cosmetic on comps...

Question about BBA contracts

I find it hard to take post-vanilla Smuggler seriously

So, don’t get me wrong. Smuggler is my favorite non-force using class in the game, and one of my favorite vanilla stories. Their dialog options are hilarious and it’s one of the main classes where I really lament that we’ll never get more class


I’ve tried everything

My game worked 100% before the update. Now it crashed every time on my PC. My PC has loaded everything on ultra before without a problem. But now it’s crash ONLY FOR SWTOR! Idk why. I don’t know anything about PV besides this thing loaded FF14/SW

Any opinions on Powertech or Mercenary?

I don’t care which one is better for combat or PvP. I prefer which ability animations are cool and whichever one is more mobile.

Consular age

Would it make sense for the Consular's padawan training to take a lot longer than the Knights, and thus be a older? I mean, people dont get their PhDs until late 20s/ early 30s, and look at how long medical school takes. Wouldn't the Consulars studi [..]
