When I first started playing Star Wars: The Old Republic, I was pleased to see a rested experience system in place. I had made extensive use of it in World of Warcraft, and planned to do the same here. I was quickly disappointed to learn that all of my rested experience was eaten up after a short few quests. Not a dealbreaker, but disappointing.
Fast forward a few planets, and I'm now in the high-20's for levels. I also can't seem to use the rested experience up at all now. Not complaining, but I don't do anything out of the ordinary (log off in Cantinas is about it) and just can't use it up fast enough!
How do the mechanics of the rested experience system in Star Wars: The Old Republic work?
