Hi everyone!

In an effort to help out new players who are just discovering the game via our SWTOR Friends Trial Program, we’d like to ask for any of you experienced SWTOR players to please post your server and character information if you’d like to act as a helpful guide to our new players. Feel free to add any other relevant info you’d like to share about yourself in your post.

These new players may choose to start a new character on your server and /whisper you for advice. Volunteers must be patient and be willing to take the time to help these folks out.

Of course, this is also useful for any new player to make friends as well, not just Trial Program players.

Thanks in advance!

Edit: As many of you have pointed out, this only applies to SWTOR Friends Trial Program players, since the weekend pass players will have additional restrictions. I've edited my post to reflect this.

Thats a really neat idea

I can be found on The Red Eclipse (Republic side) on the character Gundrik and most certainly want to help out new folks!

Could be called a veteran if thats even possible with SWTOR yet but played beta for 6 months and am now nearing legacy level 37 so you might say Im quite experienced.

Gimme a tell and I'll see what information I can provide!

My character is on the PvP server Anchorhead. My character name is Nik'tika on the Empire side. I'd be more then willing to help any new people, just shoot me a whisper.

Thanks in advance!
I'm confused, I thought the limitation was that the trial accounts cannot:
Use General Chat. [only say]
Can only reply to whispers.
Cannot use the mail system.
Cannot trade.
Cannot go anywhere except first two planets, Warzones, and the fleet.
So, how are these strangers supposed to get our attention?

I can usually be found on the republic side, but am occasionally playing my Empire alt.

Nathrin - Jedi Shadow (Main)
Kardak - Jedi Knight (lvl 40)
Rundor - Commando (lvl 35)

Maffik - Sith Sorcerer (lvl 26)

Victory is just a prelude to another battle.
