To me leveling is fun, but once its over I want to see a robust end game. I would argue that SWTOR has that. It’s new and there is content to come, but if you reach 50 now there is plenty to do.
Join a guild and make friends. This is the ultimate objective of MMOs. Of course you want things to do together, but what will keep you in the long run are the relationships you build. Join a guild. Do together things like running instances and operations. Help the members of your guild out. Share the fruits of your crafting with members who are still leveling up. If you do these things you’ll make friends and MMOs will be something more than just a game.
Instances and Operations
Of course SWTOR has instances and operations which you can use to improve your character and work with your guild mates. Once you have your equipment you can still run them for the endless stream of noobs that will be coming up. BioWare will be adding more instances and operations as the game grows so that’s something to look forward to.
Leveling Up Alts
SWTOR has eight great stories to tell. Certainly you will want to develop your main, but go out there and live those stories—you will not regret it.
The good thing about dailies in SWTOR is you don’t have to do them everyday. They pay off big time in credits and daily medals. You only need to do them when you need credits for things, or want the rewards that come from the daily medals. You can also run heroics and receive the daily rewards since they are all repeatable.
While the space combat is not the greatest (I’m sure improvements and additional missions will come later) like the planet dailies there are credit rewards and daily medals to win by doing the space missions from time to time.
Crafting should be done while you are leveling up since it provides your character with armor, weapons, medpacs, stims, and other goods. After you reach 50 you can craft for guild mates, and you can craft items to sell on the GTN. I’ve mastered armortech, armstech, and biotech and I make a ton off the GTN selling my products.
On every planet there are datacroms that increase your base stats. Finding them all is a blast. BioWare did an exceptionally good job at making these interesting to find. There are puzzles to be solved and terrain to be navigated.
Playing the GTN
Buy low, sell high. A lot of credits can be made this way.
There are some good pvp instances in the game, and plenty of opportunity to match yourself against other players. Don’t worry about losing at first--you’ll learn the ropes.
Luke had his story, write your own. This is a sandbox feature of almost all MMOs.
There is a great deal to do in SWTOR once you hit 50. Get out there and do it.
Hokey religions are no replacement for a good blaster at your side.
