I made it 60GB and the game ate up around 18, like Akuma said. Windows and game setup significantly cut into play time, so I only made it to level 5 before calling it quits. I like the mechanics of it so far. It's a little too early to really decide how I feel about the story line. I wants me a space ship dammit!

You get a ship relatively early, 16ish.

I just bought the game with a gift card I got for my birthday. Yay. Bought it online, so they are shipping it to me.

Well I was wrong about cross-faction communication, you can talk between factions in /say.

That's kinda good. Shame you can't do longer distance comms. Can you do cooperative missions and such?

I'm not a big fan of the way they do Warzones. Sure, they will be making a bracket for 50's only and the rest of the levels together so that will help some. But just because you equalize the amount of damage put out between a level 10 and a level 49, they are still vastly different in the abilities and talents.

I have done all the warzones and I have to say that (1) I wish we had a way to que for specific warzones and (2) as a level 15 Commando, I hated Huttball. The others I did alright on.

Pffft. You're not even to us at all. I see any number under 50, my first thought is "Easy prey." It might say you're equal but when your health is around 12k and my tracer missiles hit you for 1.6k-2.6k ea, you have no chance. You're more buffed to be slightly annoying, but not equal.

That's what I"m getting at! It's ridiculous to think that a 10 vs. 50 even with buffed health and damage are remotely equal. And that's before the PvP gear the 50s get.

The change won't help much in my opinion.

I loves my commando... but I want to play my elegant gown wearing Jedi Shadow-tank more. I can't because I'm playing with my co-worker more often than not.

I dig the Sniper and Commando both. I need to respec my Sorcerer to Healing some time and dive into grouping. Is grouping in SWTOR significantly different than, say WOW?

I haven't done any serious grouping, just the lower flashpoints. But with my experience, my non-Combat Medic specced Commando was able to heal it quite effectively. It worked really well when you used the crowd control for the 4-gold pulls and whatnot too.

Having never done a Flashpoint, I don't know what a 4-gold pull even is.

The SWTOR wikis out there aren't very forthcoming about when you get a starship or even how. One of them shows the quests you can do (dailies and such), but nothing at all about when you can get them. Anyone know?

You get your ship when you complete your class missions on your second planet. This could be as low as level 14. Once on your ship, there will be a terminal that gives daily space missions. New missions are added as you level up.

By a "4 gold pull", I mean 4 gold star mobs. One of the boss pulls in the Mando flashpoint has a fight against a Sith Marauder, Sith Sorcerer, Bounty Hunter and Agent that wiped us hard when our tank just jumped in and we didn't CC any of them.

Concussive Round for me. And yeah, I like that too... until my partner (non-companion) decides to jump in with his knight and smack everything around him. I need to train him better.

I recommend using a barbed whip. For training, I mean.
