Thanks, I check out Nar Shada first. I thought I saw that the Alderaan bonus series wasn't available till level forty though.

It opens up on the fleet after Hoth.

To be clear as I have not seen anyone mention this, you need to have completed hoth and your class story up to that point in able to get the Alderaan bonus series on the fleet.

Yeah when I first went to Belsavis I was 41 and felt underleveled. Do some PvP to be a level or two ahead, as higher levels reduce your aggro range.

I ran into this with my sith but not my operative. The only thing I can think of is my operative did space here and there through the leveling process, and my sith did none. Both did the all normal quests and bounus series where available, and few flashes, and the heroic 2's that are soloable. (Is that a word?) At the end of tha day, the operative went to Belsavis on level, and the sith was a level behind the curve (39). Got her to 40 doing space but still feels under powered. However the operative arrived a level 42. I think that space was meant to be part of the leveling plan.
If you return from a mission, with a kill on your record, .
but without your wingman...

I actually had the opposite experience with my Operative such that I ended up finishing my story at 46, and finished leveling to 50 over a couple days doing Belsavis and Ilum quests and dailies.

The reason I believe is I almost never did a bonus quest (kill 25 whatevers) and used stealth to complete objectives as much as possible.

But having leveled several characters now, it does seem once you hit the mid 30s (Taris for Empire), you'll need to make sure to do some combination of bonus quests, bonus series, flashpoints, pvp, space and heroics.

Unless you hit the late 30s already over leveled, it seems just questing along with your story will leave you under-leveled in the 40s.

your class quest will always tell you where to go next.
A diplomat is someone who can tell you to go to hell in such a way that you will look forward to the trip.

Probably has to do with your class choice. I leveled to 50 as a Shadow Jedi Counselor and found myself at level if not under level later in the leveling process because I could stealth my way to the objectives. I'm currently leveling a Sage Jedi Counselor and am clearly 3 levels ahead of the content that I was at or below level on my Shadow. Difference in the two is one you have to clear your way to objectives, the other one you don't. Has a major impact on your overall XP gain.

Just get into the habit of killing everything around you and you will never run into an XP problem again.

Did you do the Hoth bonus series and heroics? There's at least 150k xp there.

He is too low, it goes from grey to gold at 44 or 45 and is all higher than the stuff he can't do on belsavis.
