Offhand, I wonder if they're testing something to make botting harder. If you can't get XP on the starter planets from mob kills (only missions), it's going to make it a LOT harder to level bots, with minimal impact to actual players (especially if they up mission completion XP to make up the difference).
Nope it's happened time and again after 4.xx and before the DvL event.

I went adventuring, finished the class quest on Coruscant, did space missions, came back to finish both Public Enemies and the Face Merchants heroics and again, no xp mob.

It's happened to different chars of mine on different servers in northwestern Hutta and in the area of Dromund Kaas with the Personal Challenge heroic as well. So it seems to be localized...

That's even more weird.

Char is level 32.
The mobs in the first area of Coruscant are level 7-9, so they will be grey and give no xp since you're level sync'd to 17. Any mob less than level 12 won't give you xp on Coruscant.

Of course! That makes a lot of sense. Same with OM/Hutta - there are L1 and 2 mobs there and you're synced to 10.

Makes sense, I'll have to double check. I was just doing some on Taris, didn't pay attention to the level of mobs or of sync but got xp all the way...

If the level of the mob is gray to you, you won't get any exp from it, regardless of level sync. Sometimes your level gets synced too high to get exp from some mobs on a planet.

If you have any doubts, target a mob and look at its level. Gray = no exp.

After the Starter & Capitol Planets, the levels aren't so stretched out (only 3-4 levels) so you'll be at the top end (synced) while the mobs will still be green and you'll get xp from them.

BW really needs to modify their level sync by the zones on a planet rather than planet-wide for the Starter and Capitol Planets

I'll pay attention now, thanks!

IF they could, they probably would have already. Level Sync messes with several important class missions.

They also need to remove the level component in companion missions. I mean who wants to stop everything to go spend a few minutes to get like +9 XP?
