Leveling a little too easy?

I remember during the earlier days of swtor doing some quests with many elites was pretty hard, like you could die.

Now with just 1 healing companion you can easily survive the damage they do and pretty much kill all big hp targets by just spamming a few skills and watching a video which is kinda sad, there is no danger, it is too easy

The amount of health mobs have they do, you dont one shot them while leveling like some other games but there is really little challenge.

Havent reached the KotET but i am wondering how hard is "master" difficulty"? And can you start with it or do you need to first complete it under story/veteran?

I agree that normal quests are way to easy. But as like you said, there are different difficulties in the chapters you could take and they're really hard if you don't have lvl 50 companion, good gear, and mechanics of the fight in check. I actually like to level fast, I could be lvl 34 while still on the 2nd planet story wise. If you pvp and do gsf and fp's a lot you'll get a lot of exp so that's normal I think.

Yeah overleveling is definitely true, im lvl 32 and in the middle of nar shadda, my level is pretty much always lowered for a planet quests but the whole lower level thing was supposed to be there to make the content a little more relevant.

Anyway when you said about something being hard without a lvl 50 companion and good gear are you referring to master level story chapters? Seems interesting and i cant wait to get there.

Cna i play master level immediately or do i need to do story/veteran first?

Well, while i am into challenging content, however, the rewards for doing content that was challenging back in the day was never balanced, it was either easy to do and rewarding and challenging and sometimes impossible to do on your own and gives you a utterly crap reward.

Its like the higher difficulties of the chapters....the CXP rewards you get on the higher levels is completely pathetic and really needs to be increased significantly.

You can go straight to Master, but it's worth doing the chapters one time on Story just to see the story without having to worry about being run over by Skytroopers that hit you like Mack trucks.

Master mode will probably be too hard for you.

That's not me trying to be snarky. Master mode is too hard for very nearly everyone I play with or talk to, and they're not noobs that have L2P issues.

You will die a lot. A lot of boss fights will murder you even if your gear is tops and you think you're king of the world. You will often eventually win both because of skill and because you just plain got lucky at the right moment.

If anyone tries to tell you that master mode is too easy for them, you may rest assured that they're lying.

I agree with your post, the game is a little easy in some places, but it can also be downright annoying in other spots, As for the leveling theres currently a 2x EXP/CP event going on so that would explain why your leveling so quickly.

Well, yeah, it's kinda easy. But not ET content(not story one).

Remember that there is currenmtly another experience points event going on.
During some of these events there even was a special vendor on the Fleet which could sell you a thing which turns the incewsed amount of experience points off.

To have some bits of a challenge back, I advise you to do a new toon on a different server with 0 Legacy. I had some fun doing so.
You could even refuse to use better gear throughout the earlier solo levels.
