It's that time again! Join us at https://www.twitch.tv/ladyrann for Episode Four of Entering Operations: Terror from Beyond (TFB)! Saturday, April 20th, at 2 PM CST. This weekend we are delving into the fascinating world of Asation to figure out


Most populated servers?

Hey, ​ What are the most populated servers, I have not played in a while. ​ Thanks


Companion's Best Gift

Does anyone have a link to, or a list of, every companions most efficient gift? Or even a partial list?


Im going to build a PC mainly to play SWTOR (and other games of course). I just want to ask if the game is still thriving and worth this endeavor.

I am a huge star wars fan and am looking for some world immersion and great stories so from what I have found on this sub, SWTOR is for me. Since the game has been around for so long, I am questioning how much longer it will be around for. I know thi


Variable weapons use

I'd like to see some expanded weapons use. I think it is unrealistic that we are pigeon holed into one weapon type. I find it hard to believe that the Pistol is the ONLY weapon BH PT's have proficiency in. Here we come into the Mandalorian TV seri


Favorite Abilities?

I've returned to the game after getting extra hype from SW Celebration, and also after a 2+ year hiatus (see: server flair). I'm honestly so very very sad that my two favorite Gunslinger abilities - Dirty Kick and Blaster Whip - have been removed / i


Planning to join the Republic once I get the chance. Will I get to see Jaesa again?

Once the semester's over, I'm considering picking up where I left off. I was just about to fight Vaylin and Vitiate one last time. ​ After that, I planned on joining the republic. My character is a maxed out light side warrior, and I'm

Noob here - "Crisis in the Galactic City" mission enemies not giving XP

A noob here. I started few days ago playing SWTOR using a Jedi Knight, now I started the mission "Crisis in the Galactic City" but after defeating the Guild enemies I'm not getting XP, I'm getting just the bonus stage XP (e.g. when it asks you to def

Overleveling question

So with the double XP buff (and I'm a subscriber in a guild with xp buffs), I'm just now leaving Ord Mantell and I'm nearly 25. That'll put me at 70 before I leave Tat. ​ So my question is, I'd like to still do all the planetary quests


Gear positioning feature

I took this idea from another game where devs resolved this issue. As you well know the guns, lightsabers and other stuff are always clipping through clothing what doesn't look good in some cases. (actually, for me in the most cases) If you let playe


Just used my free lvl 65 character.

I chose assassin. It gave me syhthweave by default. Can i switch ut ti the one that makes ligtsabers? Is that a good choice?


Landing on Ossus in "Koth shuttle"

Am I the only one who was annoyed? I've got a ship! I want to land on a planat with my ship! Not the ugly generic Alliance "Koth' shuttle"! Please BioWare, remember that our classes have different ships, and use them!


Hey guys, what's the smallest Blaster Rifle out there?

Started an Imperial Agent/Operative yesterday and was annoyed to discover my main weapon is a Rifle, despite most of my attacks being close ranged. I would've expected a Spy to be pistol-based... Anyways, I'm super not-thrilled about how the rifle


Expansion? Bah... I want my swimwear

Contradictory notes in companion screen?

I've returned after a bit of a break having gotten tired of the newer expansions and stuff. I noticed logging into my Sith Warrior that it has both options for Quinn, when I remember she got back together with him, but the game has both options - we


Question about the crafting system.

I’ve been looking into crafting the masterwork Ossus items lately, does anybody know if companions can crit and double these items? My guess would be no, but I’d like to make sure. Couldn’t really find the answer anywhere else.


RE: Lvl 65 Boosted Character

I had a quick question. If I start a new character with the lvl 65 Boost, will I still be able to play Knights of the Fallen Empire, or am I stuck with Knights of the Eternal Throne?


Been doing a hardcore run through.

Been playing with only 1 life playing the story but if I ever die once I remake my character and start again as someone new. Anyone else do this or want to do it? You can have heal como but it's better to have no comp or set them to dps the whole t


SWTOR Escape Pod Cast 288: SWC and Onslaught


Just got a black/black dye from one of the old promotional cantina crates you get when making a new char.


Finally tried the game, what a mess. A truly terrible experience for new players

I generally don't have a lot of love for hotbar/cooldown MMOs, but I can respect when they are done well. But this one is truly bad. I was ten levels higher than the enemies by the time i reached my second planet. I literally just ran through every a


Cannot equip color crystals I bought please help!

I have a turquoise one worth 2mil and a purple one worth 250k and they wont equip on my double saber. I am so confused! Any help here? I am a lvl 35 Jedi Shadow. I bought the crystals on the marketplace.
