  • You will gain your starship after you finish a major class quest at your capital city (usually around level 16 or 17)
  • Your star ship comes with its very own bank or "cargo hold" though they act as the same thing
  • If your companion wants to talk to you and you are in your ship, now is the time to do it!
  • To travel around the galaxy, visit your galaxy map
  • Choosing a destination will cost fuel, the number of credits required to get there will be displayed along the bottom in green
  • After your destination has been chosen, your ship will auto-align to the planet then jump-drive will be initiated
  • Your ship will remain in Orbit around the planet until you use the ship's exit, a cutscene will then show you landing on the planets surface
  • Any systems with current quests will have their quest name beside them, making them easier to locate.
  • You also have a mission terminal beside your galaxy map which will give you new space missions
  • Space Missions are done in the form of a railgun style shooter. You follow a set path and have to shoot enemies along the way.
  • Space Bar to do a barrel roll ^^
  • Left clicking will activate your primary weapon (laser for example)
  • Right clicking will activate your secondary weapon (rockets for example)
  • Lasers have infinite ammo whereas rockets can only hold a certain amount
  • You can upgrade your ship by visiting your character screen 'C' and clicking the 'Ship' tab
  • Simply drag and drop modification into the designated slots for them to take effect
  • The crafting skill cybertech can create space ship mods. Slicing also has a chance to get them and their schematics.

  • A legacy name is a server-wide surname used by all (current & future) characters on your server
  • A legacy name is granted after you complete Act 1 (usually around level 30)
  • After you finish Act 1 a new window pane will open asking you to choose your legacy name
  • If you close this window, you can find it under the Skill Tree (K) and the Legacy tab along the bottom
  • Be careful with what you pick, for once you choose you can't change it in any way (so far)
  • You can use apostrophes (') and hyphen (-) symbols
  • You can't use a space
  • If you use a symbol, all letters after the symbol will be lower case, example: typing Lo'Saki would actually end up as Lo'saki
  • After you pick a name you may choose to display it differently, this can be done in the preferences menu under social and the legacy subheading
  • You can choose between one of three ways:
  • HIDDEN - The Legacy Name will be hidden to you and all other players
  • SURNAME - The Legacy Name will appear after your current name e.g. Goshee [legacyname]
  • TITLE - The Legacy Name will appear underneath your name The [legacyname] Legacy

The legacy system has been updated with patch 1.2
  • If you reach level 50 with a certain race you will 'unlock' it and can then use that race for any class/faction in future characters
  • Achieving more legacy levels will give you access to unique powers and bonuses as well as fittings for your ship

  • A guild is a group of individuals who have joined forces under the same flag to achieve common goals
  • A guild can be created at your capital city, Coruscant or Dromund Kaas
  • If you are Republic look for Lieutenant Kyndern (-1143, 1417) Who can be found at the desk behind the Galactic Market Kiosks in the Senate Commercial District
  • Locate and talk to the guild registrar in the main city to form a guild
  • You must have 4 players (including yourself) in your party to create the guild
  • Once created all 4 members will be part of the new guild, the person who created it will be the guild leader
  • To invite more members to your guild type /ginvite [name]
  • To quit your current guild type /gquit
  • To talk in your guild channel type /g

Guild Functionality – Guilds are important to the long term health of any MMORPG. We have a huge list of guild centric features. This will be an ongoing effort that will probably never end. Guild banks are the first thing we’ll be delivering in our plans for increased guild functionality. Eventually we even want to deliver on the promise of the long hinted at “Guild Capital Ships”. - James Ohlen, Game Director
