F.A.Q. / Tip & Tricks / Benchmarks

I've always believed in that if you're going to do something, do it right. This is an addition to the guide to try and help flush out any other questions that are either asked or I think up, as well as provide some more detailed information on some select topics. So if you have a question, please post it! I'm happy to try and answer any and all questions you have.

Awesome guide. Thanks for taking the time to write this up. Makes complete sense and it will be something I use with my alts.

EDIT: I have spent approximately 6 hours grinding on the fleet to lv. 15 using your guide, just letting you know for technical purposes.

To add on to what Trineda already said, we've also added this guide to the New Players Fleet Pass: A Directory of Resources! It is listed in the Non-Stickied New Players Help Notable Threads post, under the Leveling section.

Thanks for making a valuable resource for the community!

I'm going to be starting a new character extremely soon, and I will actually make sure to try and record how long it takes me from levels 1-50 and not do silly stuff on that character in-between. Since I spend a lot of time hounding the Galactic Trade Market and helping guild members, it's hard for me to say.

However, I do have a level 21 that I haven't touched in a while that has 21 hours of logged play on it. I wouldn't use this as a benchmark since I made this character to help a very new and fresh guildmember start a new character, and he was quite slow and inefficient during the course of our travels (We were very loosely using principles that I stated in this guide, such as trying to stay 6 levels before starting a world). I also started that character before patch 1.2 hit, so I didn't have Sprint for the initial questing which would now cut a huge amount of time for questing.

Also keep in mind that the early game is where you're going to be sinking a lot of time into, as the goal is to spend some time now to save a lot of time later. So taking numbers from a relatively low level character that wasn't even done properly may not be the best example, but that is something to keep in mind.

It's definitely an excellent question, and I'll make sure to devote my next character strictly to this guide to get some accurate numbers. This question will also be quoted later when I compose an F.A.Q. and Tips and Tricks section.

Thanks a lot!

Another Question:

Just how significantly will having lots of money at a low level be? (people like seeing numbers - i know it is hard to get them though)

Great Guide - gonna start using it now.
