So you hit level 50….now what? Gearing up at level 50 (Part 2)

Guide was written by Fantine of the Alpha Strike Force SWToR Guild – Part One can be found here Rolling into Rakata The step above Columi is known as Rakata and when the game was released was the highest level of gear.  This level of gear requires a player earn the appropriate tokens.  It’s nearly identical to the Columi system above, however, you must take on a higher level of challenge to earn them. Rakata tokens are mostly earned from Operations.  The one exception to this rule of the chest token which is dropped from the final boss of the only Tier 2 hard mode flashpoint, Lost Island.  The link at the bottom shows the specific drops by boss, but in general you’ll need to complete hard mode tier one operations (Eternity Vault and Kagara’s Palace) and / or story mode tier two operations (Explosive Content and Terror from Beyond).  Rakata’s gear has a…

Flashpoint Guide: The Streets of Cademimu

Don’t forget to check out constantly growing list of guides for Star Wars: The old republic The Streets of Cademimu Flashpoint takes place in the city of Cademimu and it’s for level 29 players or higher.

Guide to HK 51

  The HK-51 companion is finally here and this guide will explain what you need to do to acquire one. Some of the tasks are fairly easy but others will be very difficult so be prepared to spend some time on this quest.

SWTOR Biochem Leveling Guide 1 through 400

The patterns used in this leveling guide for Biochem are obtainable from the Biochem Trainer only. You use Biochem to make stims, implants and medical packs. Any class can use this skill but the healers will benefit the most. The primary gathering skill used in Biochem is Bioanalysis using compounds and Biochemical Samples. The secondary mission skill is Diplomacy using Medical Supplies. After you complete each step, you can train for the next level by visiting the Biochem Crew Skill Trainer. If you use reverse engineering, you can use fewer materials on the items you make. However, this method produces random materials, which means that you cannot calculate a precise number for the materials players need to use for crafting. For this reasons, this leveling guide uses the materials needed when reverse engineering for Biochem is not used. This makes it possible for you to know exactly which materials you’ll…

SWTOR Scapper Smuggler PvP Guide- Understanding Stealth

If you’ve played a stealth character in other MMOs, expect things to be a little different in Star Wars: The Old Republic. The main difference is in the way you engage your target and in the stealth detection. At first, it may seem a little awkward and harder but once you understand the concept, you’ll probably enjoy the gameplay even more, especially if you like a real challenge. Engaging Your Target The way you engage your target is much different from what you’re probably used to. When you engage a single target and they die, you can restealth immediately as long as you have not attacked another target and no one else has attacked you. In this scenario, you’re considered “out of combat” when you send out the deadly blow. However, if you engage someone else or if anyone else engages you before the cool down period is up, you’re…
