comment What's the deal with orange items without stats?
Non-orange (that is: green/blue/purple) crafted gear can 'crit' when crafted and receive a single augment slot.

@sarge_smith Thanks!

comment Where can I learn to make Force Wielder hilts?
You cannot. (this answer is too short to even be allowed as a comment...)

comment What is the penalty for dying in SWTOR?
There are medical centers all over the maps, so the teleport trick won't work for long distances.

comment What's the best way to solo elites?
I stand corrected on Power Shot. I've removed my incorrect comment.

comment What's the best way to solo elites?
@sarge_smith That area is an heroic-4 area! Each pull will have at least two elite and a strong mob, and are designed to be handled by a full group. No wonder you die fast. My advice: listen to the guards and don't go past the guard post. Instead, hop on a shuttle to Kaas City, and explore the other parts of the planet.

comment Which starting planets are shared with which classes?
Rule of thump: Force users share their starting planet, as do the non-force classes.

comment What is the bar below the XP bar when I'm in a party?
@Mufasa There is also an option somewhere "Show Legacy Bar", which is on by default. So I'm with you.

comment What is Surge Rating?
Note that for e.g. a Bounty Hunter, Aim instead of Willpower will be used to calculate the critical chance.

comment What's the best way to solo elites?
@Rodolfo That is good advice in many cases, but not in this case. After you draw aggo, Mako will heal herself and not contribute to the dps so nothing will be gained. Secondly, especially on the lower levels her dps is high so it might even be impossible to get aggro. Therefor, in the case of a BH and Mako, it is better to start the fight with a big nuke and tank yourself.

comment Is it more profitable to put crafted items onto Auction?
You forgot that you can reverse engineer the items to receive back some of the materials, which can be used to create new items. Which translates into: more skill increases for the same amount of starting materials.

comment Where does The Old Republic fit in with KOTOR?
There are several references to Revan in TOR, and in-game those events are referenced as three centuries ago.

comment Which crew skills complement each other?
Looks like a lot of the crossing lines could be solved by rearranging some icons. E.g. swapping Archaeology and Treasure Hunting.

comment How do Dark Side and Light Side points work with regard to your faction?
Dark/Light and Empire/Republic are totally orthogonal in the game. All combinations are possible.

comment Is Origin required to play the digital download version of TOR?
@NickT I wouldn't know. I just reported the official reply to OP's question.

comment Is Origin required to play the digital download version of TOR?
@NickT The beta client did not require Origin to be downloaded. That same client has patched itself and should enable me to play the real game (according to the official FAQ). So yes, I never had to install Origin. OTOH, no, that route is not available anymore for people who want to install it today.

comment Is Origin required to play the digital download version of TOR?
@NickT Yes, it appears so. BTW, I tracked down an official FAQ entry - see my answer.

comment Is Origin required to play the digital download version of TOR?
I was in the beta, and didn't need to install origin. My client has patched itself for early access, and I still don't need origin. I recall reading that I didn't need to install origin for running the game, but as all official SW-TOR forums have been wiped after the beta, I can't link to an official post. However, for those who have not been in the beta: you'll have to install origin to download the game. As dvds are not available yet, it's unknown whether that route will require origin.

comment What level can I choose my advanced class?
In my experience, if you complete all soloable side-quests, you will be at least level 11 when you've completed the starting planet. If you rush the main story quest and skip everything else, you could leave the planet at about level 7.

comment First suggested Heirloom piece to get?
if you only have enough gold (or tokens) to buy one chest and one shoulder, buy the cloth version. The stats might be useless, but it can be used by all your (future) alts. If you're up to it, you could even mail them back and forth if you level your alts at the same time.
