So I've just started playing, (love the game) and I'm having a difficult time finding the levels at ~40-45. I started Voss as level 41 and really never did any of the late H4 quests or some other dinky sidequests on Hoth. Did I start Voss too early or is it simply I need some other levels before starting Voss? It's not that it's not accomplish-able for me on my smuggler, but i'm like running into level 46 quests on my level 43. I have feeling that I'll get even farther behind in the stages of quests. In a bit of a bind, what should I do?

Go back to the fleet and pick up the Aldaraan bonus series which start as ~ lvl 40. Try and do at least a couple of the H2s and/or a flashpoint or two and that should sort you out for Voss.

Space missions are a somewhat entertaining side-game and can also give you decent xp. They are pretty easy if you keep your ship geared up.

You're not the first. Voss has some areas/missions that arent in line with the difficulties on other planets, in relation to the levels they are intended for. If everything fails try doing it as a healer, that's what i did on my underleveled/undergeared commando.

I mean it's not that the mobs are impossible to kill or anything like that. I'm just afraid there won't be enough quests on the planet to fill the void between my level and the mobs level without the mobs jumping up a level or so to the point the quests don't give enough exp. All said or done, I'm just wondering if anyone has had this problem on their characters before. I can also pvp, kill mobs, or do space missions/flashpoints (gl group) but those tend to get boring ya know?
Anyways, thanks for the insight. It is greatly appreciated.

I've never found myself underlevelled, but I do read posts from people who have the problem. I'd say supplement your levelling by putting yourself in the groupfinder for a flashpoint. When the flashpoint is over, you can click the option to return to your previous location and just pick up questing where you left off.

Voss is a pretty big planet, but if you've made it there at level 41, you may have a tough time hitting 50 by the time you finish Ilum, and your class finisher on Corellia will be harder if you're level 48 rather than 50. It would probably be a good idea to supplement your experience point gain around now.

I had problems leveling with my smuggler because I kept stealthing past mobs. Killing those 30 bad guys on the way to the objective is a huge amount of XP, unless you supplement your story quests with alot of PvP or space missions make sure that you kill the baddies, even if you can sneak past.

You can also purchase with Cartel Coins the XP boosts. I find them to be pretty helpful with leveling. I'm actually like 4 levels higher than I should be haha. :-)

I've been supplementing w/bonus missions, heroics and space missions with my scoundrel. I will stop to kill some enemies at least once, but then sneak past them when they respawn.

Especially on Taris. Sheesh. Rakghouls, pirates, and wild animals. Oh.... my.
