So Speeder piloting 1 at level 20 means no knock off protection. I think we can safely cross this one off the list of real complaints.

Yeah, when you're 50 with speeder piloting 3, you can cruise through packs of mobs with no prob.

I've never had any issues withe the nightshade. I ride out of heavily populated areas, catching fire from all sides, and can't remember the last time I got knocked off of it. Sounds like somebody needs to purchase piloting 3.

So wanting to avoid respawning mobs means you ignoring the core gameplay?

with the kurtob, on any toon, i only get knocked off if i take a missle or sticky grenade, any laser fire just impacts and i keep moving on my merry way, my main has lvl 3 speeder piloting, all my alts are lvl 1 with the same results, leveling i rarely avoid many mobs unless im in a hurry, but i have speeder-ed through whole camps to get to one objective with no knockoffs and about 30 mobs firing at me, did that last night on a trooper, so in conclusion, i believe that your knock off protection is great for laser fire, but taking a missle to the face will still knock you off no matter what piloting lvl you are

Been using that Nighshade on my Inquisitor going from Speeder Piloting 1-3. Rarely knocked off now from blaster fire and can speed around groups of mobs without worrying too much about being dismounted.

Definitely looks like the dismount protection scales in the same was as the speed.

Me too

When I got to max speeder piloting everything felt cool, but somehow Section X doesn't seem to care.

I don't normally have any problem in section X with my grade 3 speeder & training....

My wife on the other hand gets dumped on her butt all the time by hers.

The only difference between us is that she normally uses an adaptive speeder that came from a cartel pack.

I have the same problem when I switch to an adaptive speeder.

It appears that the adaptive speeders do not provide the same protection as true grade 3 speeders.
