SWTOR Explorer’s Guide Review

If you’re looking for an additional bonus to help you enjoy SWTOR a little more, consider picking up a copy of Prima’s Star Wars: The Old Republic Explorer’s Guide. This official Prima guide for SWTOR has many amazing features and benefits to this guide but before you buy a copy, it’s important to know what you’re doing and what you’re getting when you buy it.

First one, this is not a leveling guide. It will not tell you where to go to quest or how to quest. It’s not necessarily going to help you level faster. Instead, it’s an atlas for SWTOR full of class-specific tips, detailed maps in full color and descriptions of each location.

Some of the benefits of this Explorer’s Guide includes:

  1. Summaries of the classes and specializations with detailed descriptions of the class and the character creation menu. 
  2. Beautiful color maps of every area within the game full of the locations of flight points, quest givers, points of interest, enemy zones and much more.
  3. Planet descriptions along with color maps show you where you will visit as well as what can be found on that planet in full detail. 
  4. Class tips will help you determine which stats you need for your class as well as how to better maximize your character’s abilities and companions. 
  5.  Locate hidden datacrons and find them more easily with the full color maps. 

The Prima’s Star Wars: The Old Republic Explorer’s Guide retails for $24.95 but can be found discounted online at Amazon and in many retail stores like Wal-Mart.

If you’re a Star Wars/SWTOR fan and want a collectible piece, this makes a fantastic art piece to add to the collection. It has beautiful exclusive concept art you won’t find anywhere else. You can place it on a shelf or a coffee table and it’s guaranteed to catch the eye of visitors.
