Hi all, I tried the f2p version 3 days ago and I like it, so I pinch in 15 bucks to subscribe as a support to the developers. But I probably won't subscribe forever, maybe 2-3 month max as I rarely paid more than 30 for a game.

So my question is, what should I buy in the cartel market in preparation before I cancel my sub? Any essential unlock?

Any advice is appreciated.

You will now be prefered status if you unsub again. things that your locked out from won't be so harsh and the coins will always be available to you.

You can end up supporting the developers as a preferred a lot more than a subscriber would. So consider the unlocks that you need to enjoy the game, and then compare the GTN coin price to unlock them individually vs. the subscriber monthly fee.

Can take 1-3 months to get to top level, per character, and if you're going to play A LOT, may be cheaper to stay subscribed until you're max level or tire of the character.
