Try to balance life and MMOs, it can get crazy difficult especially if you have an addictive personality.

The best advice I can give you though is grow a thick skin. There will be plenty of jerks out there, don't let them ruin your good time.

Be nice, don't assume anything about anyone, don't believe everything you read and have fun.

Learn what you can about aggro, mobs, tanks, healers and dps.

Try to avoid stealing resources / mobs from players if their intentions are clear.

Never be afraid to ask!

Take a look at the SW:TOR for Noobs thread that I created earlier for a quickstart. Don't be afraid to ask questions or identify yourself as new to MMO's or this game as "most" folks will tend to be helpful. When in doubt ask.

Remember also, that we are all new to this game, so don't be embarrassed.
All that is required for the triumph of the Empire is for good Republicans to do nothing.

Welcome to MMO's, RutgerS. Once you go MMO, you never go back...

If you're looking for some general references The Holonet, under Game Info, on this site is a great information tool. Also, some 3rd party websites that are credible and informative are:

Torhead
Darth Hater

Enjoy and feel free to ask. Most people on here will help answer your general/detailed questions. Don't hesitate to search around for the answer before hand, though. Also, read as many threads as you can when bored...often there's some great information within them.

Good luck!

First rule for MMOs... stay off of the official forums. Your blood pressure may thank you for it.

Second, it is only a game. Turn it off every now and again.

Third, find a group of like minded folks and stay on their forums.

Lastly, Have fun.

Grouping Tip: Since you are new, be upfront about being new. Most people will try and help you/give you tips while you are doing something you have never done before. If you stay quiet, they will assume you are just a horrible player instead of just being inexperienced.

Never shout at your tank or healer - They're probably much better than you think!

Loot is based on a Need/Greed system.

You should only roll Need if it is something that you will use and its an upgrade over what is on your character.

Companion, Non-upgrades or items to vendor should be Greeded.
