Personally I don't like the expansion in the sense levelling to 55 as a solo player. I went to Makeb with early access, quested my way to 51 and a half. Then encountered level 53, 54 mobs and got hardly any gear upgrades for myself and nothing for my companion. I went back to the old content I had not finished yet in order to gain some xp, then to return to Makeb and got as far as 52 and a half, facing level 55 elites and stuff. I've tried the missions with the Seeker Droids, but it takes eons to find something and I hate being sent from one end of a planet to the other end back and forth over and over searching for something with a drop rate of in my experience 1%. Same counts for the other missions with the binoculars.

Previous planets were nicely zoned by level, you always faced mobs of the same level and then you moved on to the next quest hub and you equally levelled up. Not always, but then there were bonus missions on other planets to catch up. So why make Makeb any different. It was a good move of BW to spread out the Seeker Droid missions etc over other planets, but I would rather have seen missions were like they were before. Kill x of this, gather y of that and not drilling a hole in the ground to find something, because there is something near you. But all I do is turning in circles like a fool getting nothing. It feels like a waste of time to me. I need action.

Comming from WoW I've found this game refreshing. I quit playing WoW December last year because of the endless amount of reputation dailies, doing the exact same stuff each and every day. It became a boring chore instead of a relaxing game, because that is what a game is supposed to be, fun while making progress. SWTOR was different and how else couild it be because everything is new and I love the cinematic quest conversations and story lines.

I don't want to burn down this expansion completely to the ground. I believe when teamed up it's awesome and you can run to 55 together easily. Makeb is really beautiful and it's missions challenging. BW has made a good thing. It's just not for me as I play this game alone and it got me stuck now in the story line. Frustrated and angry I have logged of a couple of times, that never happened before.

So yeah, that's my personal experience so far.

Just out of curiosity will the epic gear for level 50 still be available when your character hits 50?
