The Mask of Revan is a quest item for the mission you are on to retrieve it, from the Revanite camp on Dromund Kaas. That means it gets put on a different tab on your inventory, and would not function as a piece of your equipment no matter what class you were.

Yes, they did away with Strength (as well as Willpower, Aim, and Cunning, plus combining Crit and Surge) with Patch 4.0. Now all classes use Mastery instead. All you need to worry about is choosing the modifications with more Mastery than Endurance (the reverse is for tanks).

It's a lot simpler than you're expecting. Tech classes (Smuggler, Trooper, Agent, and Bounty Hunter) get what you described, and Force classes (Consular, Knight, Inquisitor, and Warrior) get Synthweaving, Archaeology, and Underworld Trading. Here's one source on Reddit and another on the official forums.

Yes. Your account can actually be closed because of this. Here is a section of the rules of conduct that clearly says that: You may not use names of copyrighted or trademarked characters, materials or products, e.g. Coca-Cola or Dr. Pepper. Other things that you cannot name characters are names like GeorgeLucas, LukeSkywalker and WinstonChurchill.

The exact optimal stats are: 6410 Endurance | 5372 Mastery | 2931 Power 1309 Critical | 774 Alacrity | 701 Accuracy To achieve this, you want Versatile armorings and hilt (for more Mastery), unlettered Lethal mods (for more Mastery and Power), 2 Initiative enhancements and 5 Accuracy augments (to get almost exactly 110% Accuracy), and the rest split ...

They are next to the appropriate Class Trainers on the capital worlds (below the Senate Plaza on Coruscant, and on the upper level of Kaas City on Dromund Kaas).

I decided to do some experimenting, while trying out the Level 8 Shield idea provided in another answer and found the following: Buy Versatile Armoring 42 from Level 60 Modification Vendor on Fleet, at 2 Common Data Crystals per Armoring Either wait out the buy back timer (2 hours) or send the Armoring(s) to an alt via in-game mail Sell the Armoring(s) to ...

This appears to be working for people who obtained a "temporary" companion after Patch 4.0 (open the Companions and Contacts window to summon them), but is broken for people who had a temp companion before the patch; see this Reddit post. (For clarity, in pre-4.0 content most companions temporarily accompany you during critical quests before becoming "...

May 4th, subscribers got a 12x exp boost on class missions. As of July 17th, subscribers are still getting this boost. Apparently the only way to stop the boost is to buy an item from a vendor on the fleet. All true (though the item is free). It continues until early access for the the next expansion, Knights of the Fallen Empire, on October 20th. Note ...

Solo Mode is designed for a single person. You are given an droid that will tank and heal, leaving it up to you to deal most of the damage (though it can finish some fights on its own). Story Mode is the basic group mode for a Flashpoint and typically requires a tank, a healer, and two DPS. Many Story Modes were low-level, with Hard Modes taking the same ...

No, you must have the actual item and drag the item to the outfit slot to equip it and obtain the look. Once an item is equipped, you can discard the original but if you equip a new piece in that slot you will have lost the previous.

The most efficient and quickest way to earn credits in the end-game comes from dailies and the new(4.0) Heroic quests system, and for the more active player; Operations. Dailies are short quests that can be repeated on a daily basis and give you 6-10k depending in the planet and if you do the bonus quest or not. Dailies can be done on the planets: Corellia ...

This was added with Patch 4.0. Open Preferences and go to the Keybinding Import/Export tab on the bottom right. In the text box at the bottom left you can type a name and hit the Save (floppy disk icon) button, and then go to your other character and hit the Load (page icon) beside that name in the Key Presets list.

You can only spend data crystals at certain vendors. For instance, this Reddit post contains more detail about vendors on Odessen that accept them: There are vendors on Oddessan(or however you spell that) that sell stuff for them. One vendor in the Underworld section of the command bunker sells decorations, pets, and a certain Zakuulian group's ...

In 4.0, Affection has been replaced with Influence. As with Affection, Influence is completely orthogonal to whether your companions actually like you and your choices — it simply indicates that you've had some affect on them. Unlike Affection, however, it can only increase — so decisions that they don't like still increase it. You can't have ...

You can only unlock and/or run one copy of each specific mission at a time. Usually at each level there are 2-4 rare missions from discoveries for each skill. At 500 Diplomacy, there are 2, so there is no way for you to run 3. The mission discovery items should have different icons so that you can tell them apart.

There are two types of referrals: You, as a subscriber, refer a past or present subscriber who has never been referred before. (The page says they can't have been referred within the past 90 days, but unfortunately it doesn't work if they've ever been referred period.) You, as a subscriber, refer someone who creates an entirely new F2P account with your ...

He is not a romanceable companion. As such, nothing you say to him ever locks you out of future conversations or side stories/quests. For companions with a romance option, you can be locked out of the romance if you turn down any [Flirt] option that doesn't grant Dark Side points or others that are further along in the arc. To be safe, always choose all ...

I'm afraid not. The only way to play Knights of the Fallen Empire is by subscribing. The good part about subscribing, though, is that you get every single expansion with it now. So for a $15 payment, you get the Rise of the Hutt Cartel, Shadow of Revan, and the newest, Knights of the Fallen Empire. Plus the month's bonus of being a subscriber.

You cannot tank in DPS spec, the concept is absurd. Without tanking abilities and buffs, tanking gear would be mostly useless and gimp your DPS, ensuring you could not maintain threat. DPS gear won't offer you any protection and it is likely that you would still not maintain threat over other DPS who are more familiar with the role and their Disciplines. ...

From the game's official site: As an active Subscriber, you have a personal referral link to send to your friends! Refer friends who have never had a SWTOR account. Invite previous Subscribers who have been unsubscribed for 90 days or more. Tell your friends to use the link as the first step in creating a new account or logging back in to an existing ...

I just tested this out, and it turns out that if the player with Roaming Mend applied to them takes damage while no other friendly is within 20 meters, it will heal them once and then disappear. 3 stacks of Roaming Mend Charges will remain on the healer who applied it, but they won't do anything even if the healer comes back within range and takes damage ...

All planetary commendations have been collapsed into Common Data Crystals, and the prices of mods have been greatly reduced. This means that it is far and away much better to take comms rather than gear. You should always have enough comms to buy new mods, and modded-out gear at level will always beat the standard green items given as quest rewards.

The ability to use different skins for your companions is restricted to paying customers -- either by subscribing to the game or purchasing the "Crew Member Authorization" unlock from the Cartel Coin store.

Unfortunately there has never been a way to collect all of the equipment for all of your (1-50) companions. Now that companions do not require gear at all to function in combat (besides a weapon), it seems that there is no way to get these old alternative outfits for companions specifically besides their default outfit.

Different vendors will accept different currency. Some vendors will only accept money, others will accept Crystals and others will only accept currency that you receive from certain re-occurring events. Data crystals are most commonly used to purchase gear once you reach level 50, you can find these vendors in the supplies section of the fleet or you can ...

The game has a number of issues with NPCs being drawn at a different location from their "real" location, but it doesn't usually persist. Have you restarted the game? If you do and it doesn't help, try: Exit the instance Reset the quest Exit the game Start the launcher, log in, and do a Repair from the cog menu Start the game and try again If all that ...

You want Versatile armorings and hilt (for more Mastery), unlettered Lethal mods (for more Mastery and Power), 2 Initiative enhancements and 5 Accuracy augments (to get almost exactly 110% Accuracy), and the rest split approximately 3:2 between Crit and Alacrity. That means 2 Eviscerating crystals, 6 Crit and 3 Alacrity augments, and 4 Adept and 4 Quick ...

No, unfortunately not. The only way to remove the animation is for the effect itself to be removed (the recipient clicking off the buff/dying, or the tank turning off the guard/guarding someone else/dying).
