Returning player... advice?

Hi Helpful People,

I'm looking to have a bit of a play around with SWTOR again after a bit over a year off. I unsubbed when the Free-To-Play stuff was announced, not just because of that, but partly lack of enthusiasm in things like Explosive Conflict.

So here's my question:

What's new, where should I start, where do I find all the "new things I've missed" in the last year?

Well you can start with the expansion, if you don't already have it you can take a look at it here HERE

You can also find some more information about the new gear and progression HERE

And see here for the major game updates

There have been lots of great additions added recently with 2 big patches on the horizon see Summer of SWTOR

Of cause the best thing to do is get in game and see how you like it.

Welcome back.

Been playing for a little less than a year so will give you a list of all the new things happening since I've been around:


As for tips and tricks on where to start. I'd usually recommend the Makeb Planetary Vendor (Fleet) due to him selling Rakata level item modifications, how-ever you might have rakata+ gear already.

This link can be very helpful to start finding your way:

I do fear without the expansions there's not a lot of new things.

(PS: The giggle is back)
