the heroics give big experience, some have modifiable gear as rewards/drops, and they give planetary comms which is a good and easy way to upgrade your gear, so i personally think they're worth doing. (and like all the missions, some have great stories) personally, i think doing your class missions and heroics is a good way to go, then mix and match any side quests you wanna try.

However, if you're just trying to play through the planets in an effort to reach the endgame, the group planetary content is a major waste of time; the time it takes to complete simply isn't worth the rewards you get.

Different horses for different courses though.

In any case, the Rakghoul event should be back next week (anyone who was playing back at launch/1.1 will know how good it was). That will deffs be worth your time.

I'm about at that point. Two planets of doing every mission and it's starting to wear on me. Gonna just stick to heroic and main story quests with flashpoints and PVP to supplement. I'll pick up side quests but only if I can get some good rewards. I'll prolly just PVP for a while after Balmorra and use the last of my XP boosts to level 25 before continuing on in the story.

yeah, millierlite, that's exactly what i do. throw in the flashpoints, they're pretty fun, get big xp, gear, and planetary comms and you're good to go thumb.gif enjoy the pvp, think this game has my favorite mmo pvp. i especially enjoy the new 4 on 4 maps since they're new to me. cool.gif

forgot how poorly this game plays... can't believe I still drop to 30-40fps in a WZ rolleyes.gif

I'll have to monitor my fps. I know that's why I hate DRM games. Love Diablo 3 but the connection also causes stuttering and lagging. would be such a beautiful game if it weren't for that crap.

Finally got in some hutball matches and its definitely my favorite. Invested in some pvp xp boosts so I'm averaging about 10k-12k a match as a level 20. Think I'm gonna try starfighter tonight and see how that goes.

yeah huttball rocks. i was talking stratregy on the fleet with someone and they said there's a new huttball map coming, interested to see how that looks. i also like the running orbs map, that's actually new for me too. and still loving those 4 on 4s.

galactic starfighter is da bomb, i just need to upgrade things since lots of people have their ships pimped out. lol, i been spending most of my time pvp, i need to do some more flashpoints and my story. think i'm playing this more now than when it launched thumb.gif

That's definitely the same here. I couldn't get into it when I got back from Afghan in the spring of '12 (I was so stoked to get back and play it) but now this is the only real mmorpg that I enjoy. Tried Guild Wars and didn't enjoy it as much. I'm excited for the new map. Which one is the orb one again?
After huttball I wold have to say voidstar is my next favorite.
Hopefully I can get some matches in tonight. If not I'll have more time tomorrow since I don't have class. I had to revert back to windows 8 so now I'm waiting for SWTOR to install all the patches doh.gif .... but as soon as that happens then it will be bruce.gif

not sure on the map with orbs name, but it's got two pylons, sort of like alderaan, and you have to claim one (or both if you're dominant i guess) and run orbs to your pylon while also defending it. voidstar rocks too, that's an old favorite. i guess i like them all. you can run bountys now, that's new to me too. just ran one on tatooine, felt like boba fett biggrin.gif (you can pick the missions up in the fleet. someone said it's just an event, so i'm gonna try and do a few more before it ends)
