I have enjoyed you first 2 episodes, though I am an experienced player. I find it most excellent your are crafting a podcast for new players. I would like to help as well. The 3 biggest areas where I assist people is:

- Crafting and crew skills.
- Stat balance
- Voice chat VOIP client setup.

I would do a simple write up for each.

For now I'll give my top 2 quality of life tips I give to new players.

1.
The first is simply Legacy Rocket Boost. It is often not realized that many novice players do not know about them.
I believe they are found in:

Legacy > Global unlocks > Other

They can be purchased with in game credits however most players will not have that many credits till end game. Fortunately they can also be purchased with cartel coins. Any player who is subscribed should spend their monthly ration of CC on Rocket Boost immediately. Tips related to rocket boost:

- Can be activated anytime a player is not in combat.
- Can be activated in areas where mounting is not allowed.
- Rocket boost dismisses companions and is a good trick to get your companion back if they die, rather then rez and recover.
- Because rocket boost dismisses companion if you start a conversation while Boost is still active your companion will not join conversation, the same is true for all mounts. Note your will not again or lose affection because of this.
- Assuming you are in an area appropriate to your level. If your are stealth class using rocket boost does not break stealth and as long as you are moving at top speed you will not aggro mobs. Though i recommend you only try to bypass 1 mob or 2 if they are very close together..

2.
The other quality of life improvement is windowed mode. if you are trying to tab out of the game to a different program or simply windows key to bring up your task bar, the game goes to a loading screen. If you.

Preferences > Graphics > General
There is a drop menu that says "Full Screen" change it to "Full Screen(windowed)" then hit apply and select keep changes. Now you will not receive a loading screen and can even overlay other programs with game in the background. This is useful for keeping track of chat while tabbed out or for being able to side by side compare game to say a web page. For example a map. This is also usually the first step I take when teaching players to use a VOIP client.

Hope my tips are in a useful format. My server, faction and Guild info are in my signature. I am on forum frequently but PM is the best way to contact me here, though I will check back on this thread occasionally.

P.S. This thread comes up very high on Google search. I forget if you have public contact info for the podcast but I would add it to any of your episode update posts, including the 3 already there.
