Yes I must. I'm a subscriber & I just wasted cartel coins buying medical probe droids because I thought they'd let me "repair my armor in the field"....new players don't make the same mistake I did. Lol

If it makes you feel any better, I bought the Speeder unlocks on my Level 50 Commando thinking they were account wide. Heck of way to spend 600+ Cartel Coins

if it makes you feel any better I've spent over 5k cartel coins on an account I don't even play anymore.
0 credit gain from them too.

My worst was buying 2 additional character creation slots with a brand new alt. I then decided I didn't like his name and deleted him before opening the slot packs. Almost 10 bucks. Poof!

Omg. Did you post a ticket? You couldn't get them back?? Ouch! I would have cried, lol. The only mistake I made that I can think of is opening a pack on the wrong server. >.< I wasn't paying any attention to what toon I was on, got all excited for a new pack and just opened a bunch. Figures I was on the server I don't play much.

Hi , to all new players out there, welcome:

There is, quite simply an almost foolproof way to avoid buying items On the cartel market, That as subbed, You already get given or unlocked.

If you open certain packs, or most cartel Coin Things like consumables, If you click the appropriate item to bring it up
on the right hand window, If the Item has a Large **Yellow triangle With a question mark on it**, That usually means, That you already have unlimited access to this item because you subbed.

The only packs I bought when I joined was two Newcomer packs, for each of my characters, that comes With a speeder and the skill and a few other XP boosts.

I bought one newcomer pack for a young friend, opened it, and kept in my inventory for when he logged in, then I traded the speeder and skill free to him, so he could get around Taris with me.

I have seen fairly new players of 10-15 Go and buy a speeder, then find they need thousand credits to get improved speeder skill to use it. Always take time reading The information, before making a choice.

My biggest screw up to date was spending 40K on a lvl 41 customized lightsaber that would have damn near mad me invinceable. It was my first purchase and I still have it.

I was Lvl 17! Hopefully next week I get to use it...
