I must admit, that from the moment I started this game, i was immediately checking stats on gear and worrying about levelling a crafting skill that would increase my stats. I think that is mainly due to the obsession with dps scores in the last game I played. This game does seem to be a bit more "get the job done" so far, which is great.
I am less worried now about my gear , as many people have pointed out that you can get by perfectly well until later levels without epic gear, and it is geared around enjoying the stories and quests. Soooo... I have just hit lvl 23 and I am now playing with less worry and consternation

Upgrading your armor and weapons is easy when you can get the stuff in loot drops. I will always do the side quests in conjunction with my story line quest-many times killing an enemy will count for both of them. I typically don't do Heroics unless I'm at least one level higher than what's recommended and I never solo Heroic +4. As for guilds, stay away from Fleet!! OMG! If you're serious about joining a guild, simply put up a post in general chat briefly stating what kind of guild you're looking for along with your level and class. I'm sure there are a lot of respectable players out there who would be interested in having someone of your caliber in their guild. I'm new to the game too and got lucky when I joined a guild that was just forming. Best move I've made yet.

Welcome to SWTOR and hope you have a great time here!

Coming form Lineage 2 i know exactly what you mean.. DPS is very importand in that game, and you needed a crafting dwarf, an so called "spoiler" dwarf to farm items and equipment to equippe your main character. Crafting recipes were very complicated, and it took weeks to work towards your armor set, or weapon before you could craft, or buy it..

Im happy in SW:Tor i can focus on having fun questing, and playing with other players.

Nice to know.. personally i dont visit fleet much.. atleast not yet. To much ego there.

On the planets however i met some nice people already. Next time i log i will ask around for a nice guild to play with.

I dont have much time to play though since im a busy father of a 2 year old, and my job consumes serious time aswell.

Im pretty much a casual gamer. So i will be looking for a old farts guild or something.. lol..

Thus I presume guilds would prefer higher level chars. I suppose RP oriented guilds doesnt mind at all tho...

So, no, if someone though I meant generally all guilds, sorry that I havent been clear enough...
i have yet to see guild spam that mentions requirements like that. most guild spam i see says their guilds are casual.

a good guild will take you at any level and assist you as you progress through the game.
