As we discovered recently, you can now purchase more character slots for SWTOR from the Cartel Market. This is great for people like me who suffer from alt-it is and like to have lots of different characters in the game.
Massively brought us to news:
Star Wars: The Old Republic’s 1.6.2 patch notes are now live on the game’s website. Along with a laundry list of tweaks and bug fixes, there are a couple of blurbs that might interest free-to-play players concerned about character slots.
First of all, slot restrictions are now being enforced, so free players should see a maximum of two per server. Preferred status players get six slots per shard, while subscribers get 12. If you must know, the global active character limit is 350! The Cartel Market is selling additional slots at a cost of 600 Cartel Coins.
But there are some players who are having issues with different aspects of the character slots. For example, there is a server cap of 22, which many did not initially know about. So to recap: you get 12 slots per server as a subscriber. If you want more, you can buy them for 600 cartel coins each up to a max of 22 per server.
So- yay for buying more slots!
But keep the limitations in mind. I mean if you’re really crazy about the game and playing lots of toons, you’re going to be limited to 350 per account.
Good to have this info. Now will you be buying more slots?
