Funnily enough quesh was like the only planet I was the perfect level for.

Anyone confirm this (too low level) is why the medical officer at the space port will not give me the necessary vaccine?
This is a late response, but on my Sith Warrior I also went to Quesh at 32. I did most of the quests and all of the story line up to then of course, and PVPed a little when I was littler. So I PVPed the rest of the level, and was able to get the quest at 33 to get the vaccine and go down to Quesh.

you're in the minority; the majority of players have been outleveling the planets, and all they do are the normal quests.

While I have plenty of problems with leveling in this game, hitting a new planet under level is hard to do.

I dont PvP, never done a Heroic or FP. What I have done is Explore, finished every "bonus" quest(every new area you open up, kill smething to see if there is a Bonus quest), search for Codex stuff.

Also, if I remember right, there are level 30 missions on Nar Shadaa that fill in a gap for leveling.

I find that doing the bonus series on each planet is needed as well as ding any bonus missions that pop up, also keeping your companions affection level high so you can do their missions is good as well.

doing heroics is ok if you can find people to do them but for the most part i tend to skip them and i always seem to be a level or 3 higher then my missions.
I'm in a war against all things stupid.

I've never gotten to Quesh inside the level range either, but I'm usually two levels above it. Plenty of people have suggested ways for you to get your level up before progressing through the rest of the game. Quesh is also a terrible place to level since there are about 8 missions there.

Flashpoints don't yield a lot of XP and they're not worth the time investment of finding a group and completing it, if all you want is XP. They're fun content, but not worth it in an XP sense.

Heroics, however, are a huge boost for both XP & gear. I definitely suggest trying to get them done. I usually start looking for a group whenever I pick up the mission. I don't sit around and wait, but I try to accumulate people. Also, I jump in a group whenever I see one forming. It's best to do them when you can rather than not doing them at all.

PvP is also a great way to get XP. I suggest giving it a shot.

Space Combat is a great source of XP. Doing the opening missions for new missions can get you upwards of 22,000 XP for a 3-6 minute run.

Sorry but I have taken 3 charaters through Quesh and each time I was at the correct level for the planet.

I do the class quests, secondary quests and all bonus quests I come across, to include the bonus series.

I do not do any space missions, flashpoints, heroics or PvP.

So why you are so low I am not sure but from what you have said the best thought is you have missed something.

As for the XP it is fine.

I will never understand how people manage to have this problem. I have never had this happen. I'm running my 3rd character, I have 2 50s, and this has never happened to me. You can just do the questing and never fall behind. For example....

1. I never do any heroic quests on any planet unless specifically invited by someone else. I don't invite others to go do heroics quests with me. (No, I don't know why I do this, just an old habit left over from older games I think)

2. I never do space missions as I am leveling. I wait until 50, get all the best upgrades, and then do the missions for money, special upgrades, and sheer fun.

3. I never do flashpoints or operations as I level. In fact, I have yet to ever do one at all. I love the leveling process so much, I just feel like leveling alts. When I get tired of that, then maybe I'll do some endgame stuff.

4. I do every non-heroic quest and every bonus quest on every planet.

5. I do bonus series whenever they are available, whether they are tacked on as extras as I am about to leave the planet, or if, like the Alderaan series, you have to come back for it later.

6. I am constantly trying to increase my companions affection in order to unlock companion quests for even more xps.

Following this pattern, for all 3 characters so far, I am always at least 1 level higher than the planet I am about to go to. Usually 2 or 3. I have never once been underleveled when I start a planet.

I make sure to always log out in a rest zone. That helps a ton. On a stealth character, like my Inquisitor, I never use stealth to avoid fights when going from point A to point B. I only use it to get in close to start a fight with a backstab. I never avoid enemies through careful maneuvering either. If there are enemies between me and my destination, I carve through them. Plenty of xps that way.

Do this, and you should never be underleveled for any planet ever. If you actually do participate in space missions, heroic quests, flashpoints, or operations, you may end up overleveling each planet by 4-5 or maybe even more. The only way you will ever end up underleveled for a particular planet is if you skipped too much content on the previous planet. Plain and simple.

Some basic, and hopefully helpful, advice for you, OP. Take it as you will.

Good luck to you.

stop lying.

both on my 50 and my 44 i skipped multiple planets, when i say skipped i mean i skipped every singel quest beside class quest.

On my 50 i skipped belsavis and tattooine..two of the biggest planets around for example.


To the op, if you do just some space missions and a pvp game or 3 its fine, if you just do normal quests and nothing else and quicktravel/avoid mobs during quests then you will be short, this game is not suited for quest speed lvling.
