Use the new Server Group forums instead.

(IIRC, this was implemented a couple of weeks back.)

I'm considering taking a jedi and turning him dark but don't know the full impact of what that means and whether that will make me weaker in some way. I know you can't use blue lightsabers if you go down the dark side path but is there more to it than that?

Also, I'm assuming there are benefits to being a higher rank one way or the other but haven't seen any explanation of what that is...do you get stronger if you are on Rank 2 of the light side rather than Rank 1?
Your light/dark rank allows you to access stuff at light/dark vendors that you otherwise wouldn't be able to use. Certain color crystals are only available to some ranks. If you go dark, the dark side will affect your appearance, unless you turn that off in preferences. You are not stronger or weaker for goinging one way or another.

Thanks! That's exactly the info I was looking for, thinking of turning my sentinal dark and wasn't sure what the outcome would be.

Just wanted to say thank you for compiling all this useful info.

I'm new in town, and trying to figure a lot of stuff out right now. I didn't even know I'd rolled a nerfed class till I checked in on the IA forums.

Guess I should QQ now, right?

Great guide, but do you know what internet speed is needed/recommended ?

In case no one has told you yet you can find out what kind of responses your companions would like by looking in the codex section of your mission log.

Ah, yes, I love the codex. Lots of little nuggets in there-hadn't noticed that one yet, though.

Thank you.

I don't know if it is mentioned but I see OP said that a raid can only have 16 players. I had a 24 players raid yesterday on Coruscant for the world boss. I am not sure but maybe it could be even bigger.
