Can we get some clarification on what exactly is going to happen on the 9th for those who did not preorder or preordered after the Jan 7th cutoff date? The reason I ask is because there is also a major game update coming with the expansion. This update includes some very drastic changes to the skill trees that might make those 5 days of waiting to be a but frustrating for some. Will we be able to gain XP during these 5 days but NOT access Makeb and L55 content or do we have to wait until the 14th (for those who preordered late)? Will we be able to spend our newly converted comms on the Makeb planetary or Classic vendors? Will we still have access to the current skill trees (31 points to top tier skill) until the 14th? In short, is 2.0 with all its changes releasing on the 9th or 14th when all preorders have access to it?
This needs an answer.

Is patch 2.0 deployed on the 9th but only eligible players have acces to Makeb and related content?
Or do you only get the patch 2.0 changes when you have access to the new expansion?
Same question reworded for clarity. What happens to players on the 9th who don't have early access?

This may seem a dumb question but I haven't heard anyone answer this or mention it. Are all of the classes getting 5 more level of CLASS story? IE, did they get the voice actors to come back and record more class levels? If so, I'm really curious how things will pick up from finishing the previous class story.

They have stated very clearly that there are no class stories, only planet quests. So let's all hope is so amazing that we don't mind doing it over and over again!

I couldn't find that answer. Well that sucks; that's basically the part I enjoy the most. I have a sad feeling this expansion is going to bore me quickly. : / Hopefully they'll add to the class stories eventually. I don't mean to pout but I've been playing since launch; I have almost every class maxed out. At least if I was going to get new class stories for each of my 50s that would have been more enjoyable. Sigh.

The answer is all the patch 2.0 changes will go live. Things that you do have access to without RotHC like new talent trees will be available to you. However, Makeb and all it's features like getting to 55 will not be accessible until you purchase RotHC and wait for it's launch on the 14th.

Hope this helps clarify it for you.

Based on that, help me to clarify this, after the deployment of the patch on the 9th I'm not eligible to early access will I be able to gain XP on my level 50 toons?

SORRY
I purchased early access to "The Rise of the Hutt cartel", and i purchased it SPECIFICALLY so that i could start playing the NEW content, and NOW you tell me we can't even get into Makeb???

WHAT KIND OF CRAP IS THIS?

Early access is early access, what did I buy early access for if we don't get early access
Peace is a lie, there is only passion. Through passion, I gain strength. Through strength, I gain power. Through power, I gain victory. Through victory, my chains are broken. The Force shall free me.

Early access is enabled only if you bought the pre-order before the 7th January else you'll got the pre-order items bonus but you'll start Maked and your path from 50 to 55 on the 14th. That's what I understood reading various threads/posts in here.

That post applies to non-early access people.

You will be able to play Makeb on the 9th if you have early access.

Thank you for the clarification. I bought it when it became available specifically for that.

Thanks you, and my apologies for the nerd rage.
