Imo they ruined it...I know they did it on purpose, but when I was using the training saber it glowed yellow....took the special right out of getting my lightsaber. Wasn't as big a deal as it should have been.

Getting a lightsaber felt like a big deal in KOTOR and Galaxies. Not so much in TOR.

I disagree with you. I liked how they set up the questline and the way you received your first lightsaber.

I didnt think it was odd not to start with a saber.

I like how it played out and when I got mine Still like hearing the wooshing sound it makes

Lol, are you trying to imitate Yoda?

I have been curious as well about what level I get the saber at. If it's at the end of Tython, then that's a close enough guess for me, thanks...
Personally, I like how I have to go through the trials to earn the weapon. I mean, it is a dangerous and symbolic sword. It makes the progression to Jedi a little more real.

I like how people can't even play the game for 2 hours without immediatley demanding their lightsaber. Enjoy the story, level 9 is early enough. They even hint to it at like level 3.

When you stop posting on these forums and actually play the game.

I just started playing and had the same question... Good to know like most online forums one person gives a good polite answer to the OP, while the rest chose to be complete jerks about it.
