Anyone levelled the same class twice?

My main is a lvl 50 Sniper, but I want to level a healer. I really liked the mechanics of the Scoundrel/Operative but I'm not fond of the Republic Side, so it looks like im going to level yet another Agent to 50 (there's also the fact I absolutely love the aesthetics and style of the class).

I'm curious if anyone has done anything similar and whether they found it excessively boring or perhaps still enjoyable. I imagine space-barring myself through most the quests with plenty of XP boosts but don't want to feel like its too much of a chore.

(Oh and by same class I mean within the same major class and not AC. So I'd consider a Powertec and Mercenary the same class for example)

I did it 4 times with each of the Republic classes, such that I have a 50 of every Repub AC, and I kept myself amused by having each run use different companions and follow a different alignment option. As such, it played remarkably differently: playing as a DS healer Commando with Forex or Tanno Vik provides a very different feel for the story than running as an LS tank VG with Elara Dorne or Jorgan.

The important thing is making sure you run a story that you enjoyed the first time through. I doubt you'll like it any more coming from the opposite alignment perspective if you didn't like it on your initial run.

Yep, try a different gender/alignment/race/AC/companions and it's definitely worth another playthrough

Well I absolutely adored the IA story so that was never an issue.

I do plan on rolling a Chiss this time round compared to my dull Human but I'm probably going down the same alignment. I've had a lot of fun with my scoundrel and have decided I want that type of healer to be my main but I'd rather stay Imperial, hence rerolling an operative.

Just curious, is there anyway to make the levelling less laborious? I was thinking of just getting the early speeder legacy perks, as well getting cybertech and keeping my orange gear up to date.

I've done 2 JKs, 2 SWs, and 2 assassins. Plus a shadow, and a BH.

I leveled 2 snipers to 50, an Operative to 50, and a Scoundrel almost to 50 (48).

I might do another agent again some day, the story is very enjoyable.

Do you guys not get bored? Do you spacebar most the quests?

I'm leveling a Sin at the moment, story-wise it is boring, but I'm LS so things do change a bit. But combat-wise, TOTALLY different and I really like it

My first character was a Juggernaut on a PvP server. I rerolled on to a PvE server and played another Juggernaut. I got both to 50 and wasn't bored with the class story the second time around. But it's one of my favorite Star Wars stories of all time. And I know someone who rolled two agents and she didn't get bored with her class story the second time around either. Neither one of us did any spacebarring for the class quests

I guess it just depends on if you're the type of person who can watch a movie a second time and still enjoy it.

Now the world quests are a different story. If I do them on every character I create, I get bored with them. So I usually use PvP for making up the experience I lose from passing up on world quests. But if you're a healer you can do the flashpoints to do the same thing since you won't have to wait as long in the queues.

Through class quests, never. Through all the other stuff, yeah, the more I do them the more I spacebar through them, but there are some that I still enjoy.
