Thank you for the article. It was much appreciated.

One problem I am concerned with is, from the looks of it. The planet Makeb seems to be way over populated with human species. Meaning human NPC's. Who if any are the native dominating sentient species? Is there one?

Also, I haven't noticed any graphic improvements or use of better textures than everything else we have right now in the game. Rock faces still look overly simplistic and void of good textures, for example and seeing that sort of thing just brings me down.

The stuff we do have now in game, I look at palace/structures walls, floors etc. and some of it just looks cheap. Like it isn't finished being developed or shaded properly. Rushed even. I hope Makeb does not follow this path.

Thank you for that little bit of information on Makeb. I am super excited and cannot wait to start questing and exploring all of Makeb. I know this new planet is supposed to be as big as some of the bigger existing planets we have currently (Alderran, Hoth, etc...), but was curious to know if you can reach level 55 solely on playing all the missions on Makeb? (Meaning not including Fp's or Operations) I hope......because if so.....then that is a pretty big planet. Anyways, keep up the great work down there and please keep releasing details on a release date!!??

So it's on Balmora? I mean Quesh? I mean Belsavius? Once lush world devastated by ecological disaster?

Hmmm.... So does SW:TOR have more than one lead writer? I thought Hall Hood was a lead writer as well.

In any event, I am looking forward to seeing what Makeb is like, albeit with some trepidation. I am so slow playing thru all the class stories. I still don't have a good feel for how the Republic is in an advantageous position over the Empire at the end of all 8 class stories and still don't want to spoil it for myself.

Sounds good so far, hope that this time the questing zones are not too far apart for both factions, so that we might actually see natural open world PvP... but somehow I fear that those fault lines might separate the factions again and this world might end up boring because of that.
