I'm wondering this..cause I have played the story all the way with what used to be my main...noe level 55 gunslinger....and i dont realy wanna go through that long proccess again..it took me 2 mnts back at launch..

I did the BH story up to level 13 2 years ago i think and it was oki but not something i regrett not finishing..

What is your guys opinion about this?

My fear is that I will get tired of swtor before I am able to realy enjoy endgame with a mercenary if i have to go all the way from level 1 to 65 with him....

I have started a level 60 merc ...but seing how cool it is..i started to think about his story...

The first two chapters are slow, but once things take off, it is a really good story. I don't want to say spoilers, but there is a moment that shifts the focus from what you think is going to happen, to something else. Once that happens I felt it was one of the better Stories in the game. Of course the best 3 stories are Jedi Knight, Sith Warrior, and Imperial Agent.

Seriously everyone needs to play those three at least. Also Sith Inquisitor works so well with Fallen Empire I almost think it is a continuation of the Class Storyline.

It's a good story, interesting companions. I will enjoy killing the last one from Belsavis if I have this chance in KOTFE

The best way to enjoy recruiting new companions in KOTFE is to know all of them by playing all classes. Otherwise running around the galaxy doing quests to recruit the guys you were never attached to is meh...

I see both of your guys points, but I'm just afraid of the time it will take me.

I also did the imperial agent story unthil 40 something and yes it was oki-ish...a bit dark for my taste, but i guess dark is part of the empire side....BUT...maybe BH is less dark?..cause i dont consider the huts dark..they are just wierd...

Personally I did enjoy the story throughout the voice suited, I liked most of the companions (if not the reason they became companions ie gault) the playstyle for both powertech's and mercenary's were fun.

Everyone has their own reasons for enjoying story's and I can honestly say the only one I did not really like was the smuggler it felt like all flash but no substance (I kind of enjoyed it enough at the time but thinking back on it compared to the others it feels like meh!)

I somewhat agree on the smugler....its funny and cool in the begining, but it gets a bit weary after the 1000th time you say something cool and the flirting has no end..its just..slightly too much imo. The smugler is so high on himself/herself that its almost embarrasing

I know, half the time the conversations end with "you are about to see a real life hero", why would a smuggler want to be a hero, smugglers are in for themselves and are both vain and selfish and I think many of them would value their own lives over saving a handful of people.

My smugglers are always reluctant to be the hero as the more you become a hero of the republic I think the less likely the underworld would want to deal with you.

I thought the same of Jedi Knight's story. You have such a deep relationship with the Emperor that it feels like a natural continuation.
Yes, of course, I have a referral link too: http://www.swtor.com/r/T8tlVD

agree hehe...the smugler story is a wierd one. I feel much more connected to my BH...and i have only played the first chapter of the new expansion with him...he does not feel like a complete selfish womanizer and wannabe hehe. Yes..i guess he fights for money and probably he kill ppl for money too, but As i have boosted to 60 I have tried to always play him like an honorable soldier..that just happen to be on the empire side by chance...and that he actually only want to protect the innocent....sort of like a robin hood...

That's the thing it makes great sense for a bounty hunter, he know a contract is not without its risks but will always "honour" contracts.
For the position of the bounty hunter you can be a hero of the empire since bounty hunting is pretty much none existent within the republic, most of your work will be with the empire anyway and unlike the smuggler being a hero of the empire that can pull off the impossible actually cements your high bounty hunting standard to get higher profile and more rewarding jobs.
