SWTOR purchased level 60 character cautions

i wanted to caution anyone who got a level 60 creation from the cartel store or from being a sub when the new content came out.

i STRONGLY urge you, if you are creating a character of a class that you have not played through chapter 3, that... you go and do that BEFORE you go on to the new content.

you loose improvements to your heroic moment, buffs to your companions via story, and various other things... if you do not.

i moved on to the new content and really regretted having done that once it dawned on me what they had not given you with the leveled 60.

also, it gives your character a bunch of crew skills (at max skill level ie: 500) that are decided on what class you pick, eg: consular and sorc get synthweaving (armor that looks like jedi/sith should wear).  there is a way to say "i want to do advanced customization" that i sort of glanced at, that i wish i had looked at closer that might have allowed you to change what crew skills you get.

 

just to be clear... once you click on that yes, "i want to move on to the new content" you loose the ability to talk to your original companions and their stories, play the original content class story, and impact your legacy related to those things... there is no undo... or going back later.

Crew skills are set. You can always abandon what you don't want & train a new one up from zero.

As for Heroic Moment, I am not sure what you are talking about. Ch3 does not change the Heroic Moment ability, are you talking about the Legacy unlocks? If you want Legacy unlocks, you have to play through the class stories.

yes, you can always train one up from 0...  but, that means work.  the reason i mentioned it is that it might be worth seeing before you finish the creation, to see if you can change what the default is.  note, i also noticed that it doesn't consider you having done the achevements related to that crafting type with those that your given.

 

but, the reason i mentioned this in the first place is that the impact of moving on right away is not always apparent to someone from what the dialog says to you.

also, i suspect that, since you have not done chapter 2 completion you would not get the cross character legacy perk. ie: the buff that you can get from each of the 4 base classes you have finished chapter 2 with.

You can get your original crew back once you get to Odessen.  There is a terminal in your War Room story area (the small room that doesn't have an NPC in it).  Click on the terminal and it will give you the option to get all your original crew or wait for them to return via the story.

I have used about 6 of the level 60 tokens, and I think they are wonderful.  Once you finish the story, you have at least 10 crew members that you can send on missions; thus, you can level a new crew skill to 500 really quickly.

I haven't been following how SWTOR has been progressing lately. How many expansions there are available? I tried checking website, but I couldn't find definite answer. 

Also I'm sure there is new flashpoints, but are older vanilla flashpoint still playable with 50 lvl character? Because I don't want to buy expansions straight away until I have gotten feel with the game. I played around 6 months when SWTOR was released and after that I haven't been playing a lot as free to play. 

The most important thing in life will always be the people around you. Salud, mi familia.

Flashpoints now have a solo mode where you get a handy droid to help you in addition to your companion. They can still be challenging with decent rewards from level 10 and up.

I've heard about the issues with the insta-60, but I've not messed with it, yet.  Honestly, I've planned to just create it, then run through the story from the start.  I imagine that they will fix, or make available, anything that would prevent an insta-60 from having everything that is available to a normal character. 

Of course they shouldn't have all of that stuff that a normal level 60 would have, immediately after creation... I mean you're just buying the levels, not all of the achievements and unlocks... that would not be fair to players who've spent time leveling their toons the normal way.

tbh, if your a sub, and you have flushed out your legacy... i don't see the need for a pre-leveled 60. 2 to 4 days of activity and your at 60, esp if you have a friend to run heroics with. seems like a waste of cash, and like i said they add nothing to your achievements vs leveling one which does.  this also is true for crafting, the pre-leveled comes with 3 500 level skills but, it doesn't help you get the master craftsman since you haven't triggered any of the achievements to get there. for me. i would much rather spend my coins on something else.

also, if you rotate through characters like i do, you can easily stack up rested exp 100% bonus... and if you level them during x-mas... another 100% bonus... and the 30% legacy bonuses to class story flashpoints and exploration i was poping levels silly fast...

I have no need to buy a 60, as I haven't used my freebie yet.  I really don't need to use it, but I figure it might be nice to do something with it since I do have it.
