Inflation is one of the biggest problems in MMORPGs and it is only going to get worse over time so if your a new player i want too offer this advice on how to get your late game items(mainly cosmetics).

1. Take advantage of low prices, if you see a 40 million on average value item in the market buy it as soon as possible i guarantee the price will only continue to grow due to increase of inflation and demand for that item

2. FARM HARD as subscriber, take advantage of your unlimited credits and buy what you want from the GTN.

3. Invest look for packs that has a lot of cool things or an item that is high in demand, buy as much as possible then you can sell it later at a much higher price for profit

4. If your F2P or preferred, don't subscribe immediately stock up on things you can sell on the GTN to make a huge profit this will improve your efficiency in terms of subscription time and the amount of credits you earn

5. Try to skip as many low level missions if possible mainly the exploration ones. The experience you get from the 25% 1 hour boost and level sync is MORE THAN ENOUGH to quickly level you through the game as a F2P player. And in terms of credits low level missions are not efficient for farming credits

Fussy, fussy: when levelling, concentrate on levelling. Leave credit-gathering for later. That said, don't spend money if you don't have to. Training class abilities is free, and repairing gear is free, so don't sweat those things. You can get orange gear (even if it looks a bit blah) from the vendor next to the level 10 mods vendor on the Fleet, and the price will be Common Data Crystals, not credits.

Leave crew skills for later because they consume credits (exceptions: slicing/treasure hunting) (other exception: *gathering* skills, because you can level those by mining nodes and relevant heavy foes *without* spending money).

Dont worry about credits till late game. Honestly, unless you're trying to deck your characters outfits out at level 25 or something, credits should be no issue. If you've got the patience, you should have plenty of creds by the end of Revan.

Or just DGAF about credits. Everything you need to play the game doesn't require large amounts of credits. Expensive items on GTN are just fluff cosmetic items. Repair bills from OPs are paid by running H2s in a 4 man group for 15 minutes.

Repairing gear is most definitely NOT free.... In the early levels, it's pretty close to free, and you get new gear often enough that you don't really need to bother, but later on, repairs can easily run into the tens of thousands of credits.

Just don't bother repairing any gear before you sell it. Yes, the vendor will pay you more if it's fully repaired, but the difference will be exactly what you paid to repair it. IOW, if you are selling something, and the cost to repair it is 100 credits, and the vendor will pay you 900 credits for it unrepaired, they will pay you 1000 credits if you spend the 100 credits to repair it first. So save the extra step, and just sell it without repairing it.

You're quite right about the gear repair costs. Too many games played, mixed it up with GW2 (where gear must still be repaired, but the punitive costs it had for highbies at release are long gone).
