SWTOR classes have more abilities then WoW’s

Taunt, Chilling Scream, Guard, Vicious Slash, Threatening Scream, basic attack is keybinded but bars hidden. Everything on CD/GC is showing. Fewer abilities off cd/gc are hidden on my shadowpriest. The abilities on cd/gc are double stacked on priest,

What are some effective limitations to put on your character to make going through story more challenging but still fun?

Short post, but I was trying to locate an armor in the game (either Cartel Market or mob drop) that looks like this outfit. I'm not 100% sure which part of SW it's from, but it looks like something found in TOR with the mixture of Jedi robes and Armo

Does anyone know of a way to use decos that are bound to character in flagships? I can't donate them through the guild bank and that was basically my one idea.


The most non-immersive thing about this new plot is....(and how to fix it?)

That I can't \*do\* anything, in game, about the mystery of the plot that is presented to me. >!So who is pulling Malgus' strings? What can I do i do in the meanwhile? just wait for the next breadcrumb to drop, which I will follow up by default!&l
