They may be 90%,100% and 110% faster but they honestly don't feel like they are moving any faster then a casual run. Speeders are meant to be fast, very FAST. Perhaps make the speeders progress from 100% to 150% to 200% or faster?
I couldn't agree more. I can't believe anyone doesn't agree with this. There are three important points here:

1. Speeding around is fun.
2. Sitting and waiting for stuff to happen in a game is not fun. It is tedious.
3. My car can go about ten times faster than a person running. How is it that a society that has mastered interstellar travel is incapable of building land vehicles that go more than twice the speed of a human on foot?

The speeder speeds are a joke. Show me another game that has transortation this slow?

I think the 100%, 150% and 200% are a good start.

This will just be another item I add to the list of why I unsub

I disagree. I think it should be more like 200%, 400%, and 800%.

Suit yourself
I levelled two characters to 50 - without touching a speeder even once.

I don't agree on getting the speeders sooner. With sprint from level 1 and the upcoming legacy option for speeders from level 10 its more than needed.

But I DO think that the speed difference within speeder levels should be higher. The Basic +90% is good, but rank2 would be nice around 110% and rank3 around 125%. Wouldn't be game-braking but still noticeable steps. Right now I had hard time to tell when I switched from my rank1 to rank3.

Indeed, some of the suggested numbers are beyond ridiculous, but the cost for speeder piloting and the speeders is also a bit ridiculous for the miniscule increase.

At the very least it should be 90%, 120%, and 150%.

Now that's just irresponsibly fast.

Vanilla had 60% mounts at lvl 40

Personally I dont like mounts in MMO´s, its just not realistic that everyone sits on a dragon, speeder etc. To go by foot is much more fun actually and you also see something of the world then.

Maybe they should upgrade the speeders entirely, making them have modification slots for speed, hp and a boost.
(this would open the possibility of player-based speeder-races).

yeah, agree
i made it to tatooine on my SI at level 22 or 23 and essentially had to go do the bonus on Balmorra and a bunch of Nar Shaddaa side quests I would rather not have had to run just to get my speeder skill so I could manage Tatooine travel. it took the steam out of my sails--i would settle for a trike rather than having to too hoof it all over the place (maybe a segway?). definitely this needs to change, maybe make the riding skill open up at the same time one gets their spaceship? it makes no sense to see some kid driving a cadillac but they don't know how to drive a bicycle yet.
