Tips for newly subbed (crafting and conquest) and using referral links?

Hi guys,

I' ve just recently subbed for the first time so I wanted to ask if you have any good tips for me, about crafting or a guild that does the conquest quests. If you are in a guild that completes those (guild that is first or how it works) and you currently don't have time to participate, do you still get the rewards? I haven't tried the conquest with a guild yet so I don't really know much about it.

And about those referral links, mine is "fresh" so I would be glad if someone would use it. And I would use theirs.

Thank you

Yes, you must participate in the conquest to get the guild rewards.

If your guild is "successful" in the conquest, you still need to reach the "personal" goal of 50k conquest points in order to get the "guild" reward. Conquest points & rewards are not shared, so if you have multiple characters in the guild, each one of them must hit the "personal" goal if you want each of them to also get the guild reward.

Make sure you have 6 strongholds so you get the maximum conquest bonus. They don't have to be fully unlocked or decorated. Just owning 6 gets you the full bonus.

Not true. The bonus for *one* stronghold is prorated based on the percentage of its rooms you have unlocked.

Yep, unlocked - and it caps at 150 per cent, no matter how many more strongholds/rooms you have unlocked. They had to change it a while back because people were abusing the previous bonus method of it having been based on decorations by unlocking a room and filling it with "Basic Metal Chair" decos to max out their bonus, if my memory is certain...



And don't forget that you now get conquest points from any enemy, not just those on "Rampage" planets or listed Operations or Flashpoints, and normal missions as well as (for example this week) Bounty Contract (or Rakghoul or Gree or whatever) missions, so you can play the game and it will still count towards your conquest goals.

Wait ... are you dissing my "House of Chairs" decorating theme? I suspect you don't like my "Used Speeder Lot" one, either.

No, to get the full 150% bonus you need 6 strongholds fully unlocked, decorations are not a requirement

The cheapest strongholds to fully unlock are the Coruscant, Dromund Kaas and Umbara Strongholds. Next comes Nar Shadaa. I would start with those so you don't break your bank. Those 4 fully unlocked will give you a 100% bonus, which is pretty decent.

After that, credit costs go up quite a bit, so you need to save up some moolah.
