I'm almost done Taris on my Gunslinger. I'm level 18 (3/4 to 19) and i just handed in the stuff to Risha and she wants to leave.

I have like a CRAPTON of quests left. Yeah sure it's not my story quest, but I can see getting to level 21 easily with just those quests before I leave the planet.

I've never done a WZ, I've only done Essels once (and never done any of the H2/H4 quests either on Coruscant or Taris.

Overall pretty happy with the amount of quests on Taris. Pretty happy with EVERYTHING on Taris, as IMO it's 100x better than Metal Land (aka Coruscant)....

It's rakghouls everywhere. Rakghouls Rakghouls Rakghouls.
Go there and get this stuff. Why? Rakghouls.
Go here and kill these pirates. Why? Rakghouls.
Go buy these bagels and eat them. Why? Rakghouls.
I HATE RAKGHOULS!
Yea, I thought it was pretty tedious, also. Not playing right now because I don't want to do any more of those boring quests. Wish all the planets could have been fun.
Qui-Gon! What does the scanner say about his midi-chlorian level?!
It's over TWENTY THOUSAAAAAAAAAAND!!!

Taris was one of the longest planets I've done so far. You must have missed something.

I have to admit, I skipped the Heroic (4) quests.

After leveling from 20 to half-way through 24 on Taris, I was ready to go.

But the planet did teach me to think about how to use the mechanics of my character's class (I was playing a Sawbones-specced Scoundrel) and how to use my companion pretty well, especially given that I soloed all the Heroic (2) quests. But oh, man, if you don't use your stuns, cool downs and relic clickies appropriately, you (or at I) will get eaten, even at the top end of that 20-24 range.

I can't say I loved Taris, but I do think it went a long way towards teaching me to play my class.

Taris was the best zone in the game.

You should be able to get off Taris with around lvl 25 if you do things right and not rush through content.

I love when regular gameplay teaches you subtly how to play your class better.
I don't have the issue most people have with Taris, but only because I know a lot about the history of it, having played Kotor, and reading other things.

Taris looked great and I loved the kotor references in it, but for some reason it annoyed the hell out of me.

Still, for some bizarre reason I went and did the bonus series. Just left to go to Quesh now, just reached level 38 so I'm slightly overlevelled.
