The most recent patch was 1.1.4. Not positive of the exact number but most of them are pretty small so they go fast. Biggest patch that you'll have to download should be 1.1. If you go to News & Updates at the top, and select "Patch Notes" from the drop down, you can see all the patches that have been released so far.

I'm not positive you'll have to patch for each one, it's possible they will download in larger chunks rather than individually.

if you are just downloading the game , it should all go in one download, including the current patch info .

No problem. I'm not really sure anywhere lists the exact sizes of each patch, unfortunately. You might try googling some of the SWTOR sites and see if any of them give more detailed information about patch sizes.

Bought the online version of the game, first I had to download "the game" wich was abit over 1,5GB, when that was done installing (Wich went shockingly fast) It started up this massiv patch wich was something like 11,500GB.

what you first downloaded was just the installer, which when run downloads the game files, or runs the game

The 11+ GB is the game, not the 1.5. It's a large download. Installed on my comp it's just under 20GB.

Loggin's probably right though and all the patches will download with it at least. I didn't think of that since I downloaded it back in Dec before all the patches.
