Yep, it's one of the reasons I have left a few toons sort of flailing ;) I forgot their story. I need to rename a few and have been trying to work out what to rename them to as well!

Another thing I didn't get until a few levels in, ehem...
There are your class missions and there are planetary missions. It's often useful doing the planetary on the way as well as pick up side missions (also planetary or heroic etc.) as well before doing class missions.

Every so often I'd wander into a class mission straight off and be flattened in seconds ;) But you can also PVP to get XP.

I read on fleet chat that the handy space missions were nerfed of xp and money because people were using them to level up. Sad because it was a handy and safe way to get a few extra xp to just sneak over the next level to go get the gear needed! SO that may be a reason to log in to my republic characters and see for myself.

Yeah, that's a good point. I didn't fully appreciate the distinction when I first started playing either. Now, I check in my quest log to prioritise class quests.

I still use them from time to time to pull in a few dollars and/or XP, when my free time is limited.

That's a lot of characters. It's fun creating new characters. I may just do that :)

The more I play this game the more I'm loving it. Currently on Level 26 on Nar Shaddaa Shadow Town doing missions.

You're not currently, actively playing? What server are/were you on?

I'm very much looking forward to the player housing, and related functionality, expansion in June.

If anyone is interested in finding out more about Imperial-side end game raiding with fellow NZ players on Wednesday and/or Thursday nights on The Harbinger, send 'Banshila' an in-game message :) We do everything from older content fun runs (decorations! ;)) and world bosses, to hard mode progression, 8 or 16 man.

Long ass reply time.. lol i'm on the harbringer it seems, i thought i was on some zhar a -rather server maybe i was forced to move?
My slingshot internet connection kept disconnecting me during dungeons and *censored* so i stopped playing end game in any game and just leveled and played single player games, now i'm with orcon and better net i did want to see how much better it feels.
But i'm not hugely keen on jumping back on the grind train i played wow for years in a server first guild so being casual isn't very rewarding.

I also hate how they locked away all my millions because i don't sub. :(
