I'm sure the developers will say what they want when they want. I'm just hoping maybe one will throw me a bone here. Will the expansion just have a mission chain for the planet? Or will there be another chapter for each class storyline as well? If not please tell me that's at least in the works. I would love to see what's next for some of my characters.
........you will try.

I don't think there will be a class storyline sadly, which is why I am not going to buy it.

I hope you know that it ups the max level to 55, so its likely going to have the next chapter or something.

According to what's been said, there's going to be faction specific stories (suggesting class stories) as well as planet stories and heroics for Makeb and the 5 new levels we'll be getting

As we saw with the convo's for HK-51 (and his unique reactions to each class and species - check 'em out on YouTube, really a blast. Over 16/17 minutes of convo for the Republic classes and 16/18 minutes of convo for the Imperials, depending) they still have the voice actors and the writing skill to do these kinds of missions. I think we'll be getting a full set of post-Illum class stories

Ater all... it IS called Chapter 4. And if the chapter is the same for every single class, then it isn't REALLY a new chapter - is it?

I doubt they will expand on it. Faction missions to me says "Tatooine Republic mission arch" or "Corellia Imperial mission arch" except with a new planet.

Not really, faction stories just suggests separate story lines for Imperial and Republic on the planet not one for each class, also:

Hi everyone - I asked Jeff Hickman for some clarification for you on whether Makeb will feature an extension of class stories. Here's the info:

"The intent for Rise of the Hutt Cartel is to continue your character's story, but envisioned as part of the ongoing struggle of the Empire vs. the Republic. There are lots of great moments for you to enjoy, and it will be shared as two clear storylines. No class specific storylines are included, though I know you guys are going to love what RotHC has to offer."

We hope this helps clarify!


That's in the dev tracker.

Well I'm sure I'll enjoy it, but if they don't expand on class specific stories in the near future my faith in this wounded game is gonna get a lot smaller. One of the main selling points that caught story driven players like me was the personal story arcs. Sure the faction arcs per planet were entertaining sometimes, but who here when they had a choice between doing something that had to do with your characters personal story or run around on the planet running errands for people that you never remember again, choose the later? Even if it is just as long as one planet class missions were the only thing keeping me from just pvping/running flash points to reach 50. In the end I love the game, and am happy to hear about an expansion keep it up devs.

At the very least the devs are continuing the expansion of the SWTOR universe and hopefully, with time, more planets and expansive story archs appear. Who knows. I'm buying it to see more of the universe unfold.

Hickman also said we were "just going to die for" the Cartel Redneck Lightbulb speeder. Yeah, don't believe a word out of that dudes mouth anymore lol.
Patch 2.7.1 - We're more concerned about getting the latest greatest Cartel Cash Market item out, then making sure our servers are adequately stable for gameplay. You might be lagging folks, but look! A Black varayactly and a reskinned armor coming soon!

The HK-51 content was in beta, so I'm thinking there was nothing new there. Also, I don't think there will ever be class-story missions ever again because it would cost them too much money. Sadly, I believe that the class-specific storylines are over and done with.
