This is another instance of "asking the wrong question". After completing a flash point, you can simply click on "Exit Instance" (it appears directly above your minimap) to be teleported out - no need to taste death. That said, your primary question was worth investigating anyway. I initially did not know the answer to this, so I made a new character to ...

The answer for experience required to reach level 50 is: 8,231,605. This information was gathered first hand by myself and others leveling in my guild and server. For legacy experience, the answer is instead 20,564,000.

Step One: Get the Pattern. This step is primarily for people who have Artificing as one of their crew skills. Others will need to find someone who can do the craft on commission for them (this is exceptionally difficult and will cost you a tidy sum, for reasons that will be detailed), or get an artificing friend to help them out with this step. In order to ...

So, the short version is, You Got Lucky. Here's the long version: There are two kinds of reverse engineerable items. The first kind is simple. Reverse Engineer the item, learn the pattern for a slightly better version with a higher color-grade quality, up to Artifact grade (Purple). The chance to learn the higher-quality schematic is usually 20%, you can ...

You're triggering Centering. This is gained at level 10 as a Jedi Sentinel (so it is Sentinel specific, though Sith Marauders have an equivalent ability). You gain stacks of Centering whenever you spend focus or kill an enemy, and it doesn't do anything on its own until you reach 30 stacks of the buff. At that point, you can trigger Zen, Transcendence, or ...

If you want to make sure you got all the datacrons on a specific planet, look at the Codex entry for that planet and then click on the magnifying glass. It shows your progress on that planet, including how many of the datacrons you have: As for the rewards from datacrons, it seems it's only stats boosts and matrix shards, but I can't say that for certain. ...

The exact effects of these stats vary with level and sometimes with class, so precise effects aren't possible in the general case like this. All definitions are from the Caracter page in-game. Absorption - more absorption means more damage mitigated when you shield an attack. Accuracy - reduces chance to "miss" your opponent. Once you have 0% ...

UPDATE: New features to the game including customizing augments. This feature requires the Item Modification Tables now. See Matthew Read's answer. The original answer that applies to the game as it was originally released, is still included here: ORIGINAL: It is a remnant from earlier item modification game mechanics Bioware was trying. Currently the ...

As I recall, the progression is Moderate → Abundant → Bountiful → Rich → Prosperous → Wealthy – although the latter two require mission schematics to unlock. As to the second part of your question, yes, the difficulty increases. Check the color of the yield; if it's orange there is a chance your crewmember will come back unsuccessful. Gray, green and yellow ...

According to the Star Wars wikia, Knights of the Old Republic takes place in 3,956 BBY (Before the Battle for Yavin - aka the finale of Episode IV: A New Hope) which is 303 years before the BTC (Treaty of Coruscant). The Treaty of Coruscant heralds the start of the "Cold War Era", during which The Old Republic is set. So KOTOR takes place about 300 years ...

You need to go to a private place, such as your ship or a cantina.

The best way to quickly level social points is to repeatedly run the first flashpoint in the game (The Black Talon/The Esseles) with a group of four people. The conversation density is incredibly high here, and there are a large number of conversation options to earn Social Points from. Even better, if you significantly outlevel the instance, you can blast ...

Three shards can be combined using an Assembler to form a Matrix Cube; the cubes are then used in your character's Relics slots. There found on all the planets and only in datacrons. As far as the number, there are 67 datacrons. However, there are a limited number of shards to be found (3 red, 3 yellow, 3 blue, 2 green--98% sure, again). Here's a video ...

Technically, yes but it's a bit of a hassle to set up. You'll need to use Microsoft's Application Compatibility Toolkit to apply shims to the launcher. First, download and install both the Compatibility Toolkit and the Application verifier. Run the Compatibility Toolkit's Standard User Analyzer Wizard . It is located in Start Menu > Microsoft Application ...

Yes, go to: Preferences - User Interface - Enable Companion Comparative Tooltips Note, if your companion has nothing in that slot, nothing shows for them. This can be an issue at the lower levels since it makes it look like it isn't working. Also, you must have your companion summoned. And it only shows comparisons for the currently summoned companion.

I've dinged 50 during the final class storyline mission on both of my level 50's, but based on conversations with others, that seems to be a lucky coincidence. The class storyline continues through Corellia, the final planet, which is tuned for levels 48-50, and generally ends with a series of visits to class specific locales (think space stations, ships, ...

It's a bit of a hassle to set up. Before I start, here's an installer for the end result, if you are willing to trust me. You'll only need to rename the VC redist as described at the end of this answer. This installer applies Microsoft compatibility shims to remove the "Administrator required" flag from the launcher.

They're earned from conversations. Every time you choose a conversation option during a cutscene while in a party, you get Social Points. In multi-person conversations, each character will roll to see who gets the definitive answer and speaks aloud. If your character wins the roll and speaks, you get 2 Social Points per person in the conversation (so 8 if ...

Both of them are related to critical hits. Critical Rating affects how often do you make them, Surge Rating affects how much damage do they deal if you make them. For details, hover over Critical Chance and Critical Multiplier on your character sheet:

Try having them open Vent as Administrator. I have heard that it fixed this for a few of my guildmates. Doing some further research into this. It seems like this has been a problem since beta. There seems to be an issue with how SWTOR is handling key presses. People are having problems with the keys they bind as well. An example, if you bind left control ...

Yes. Higher level speeders, in addition to traveling faster, have more 'health' - that is to say, you'll be able to take more damage on your speeder before being automatically dismounted. Needless to say, this is an extremely welcome upgrade, and is the real reason to drop the enormous sums of money on the upgraded training, rather than the minimal speed ...

The T7-01 companion is for Jedi Knights only. So to answer your first question, it is not possible to get a T7-01 on your Jedi Consular. As to when you'll get your first companion - keep following the main story quests, and you'll get your first companion: Qyzen Fess. Jedi Knights temporarily get a taste of their first companion around level 5, much earlier ...
