I was wondering what the game plan for the people here is when they finally get their gruppy hands on this game?
I am personally planning to treat it basically as a single player game with a chat I have loved BioWare games since the first BG, and I have faith that they will deliver this time too. Eg. Baldur's Gate games had so much content in them and that was largely because of the companions, it really made a huge difference which characters you had in your party and you were really interested in their stories. So I ended up playing through BG2 probably like half a dozen times, and still I wished BioWare had continued the story and expanded the world. So finally over 10 years later here is a game that is basically never ending BioWare story. The game world is way bigger than any other BioWare game has had so far, and they will keep expanding it for the years to come, so how could I not be excited!
So I'm planning to right away make a character on both sides to see the main story unfold as fully as possible. I'll try to find every single quest I can and advance the stories of my companions. Once I finish that on my first two characters I'll make more to experience the stories of the different classes, and of the companions that come with them. I think that should keep me busy for few months at least!
What I'm not really interested in is the end game. I mean I've done dailies, raids, battlegrounds, etc. in WoW, and I plan to keep my WoW subscription open so I'll have those in WoW still anyway. That kind of content doesn't really interest me one bit in TOR. What I'm looking for in TOR is the stories BioWare is so great at making, and seeing those stories unfold is what I want to do.
