Well shit, I've been feeling nostalgic lately, Kinda wanna go back to SWTOR, thinking on picking up ROTHC (Even though its a patch, not an expansion :S this shouldn't have a price tag) but I have a few key questions.
1: Along with the expansion I'm also thinking on buying a single 1month gamecard. This is in order to lift several of the RIDICULOUS restrictions on my characters. My question however is this: once that month expires, any characters above the 6 char limit are removed? all the restrictions are placed again?
By this I mean: On my account right now (prefered status) there's 6 characters. Sith Inquisitor (My main) lvl 50. And 5 others that are all below lvl 10 (Knight, Smuggler, Trooper, Hunter, Agent). If I become a subscriber for only a month, after that month expires, would all these other 5 characters retain the right to wear titles, toggle helmets on/off, centralize armor colors, display legacy last name, wear purple armor along with purple upgrades to the ship, Retain as many cargo hold slots and expanded inventory slots as I can afford them, allow companion customization, etc etc etc?
Normally, for prefered status players you'd have to buy these unlocks ONE BY ONE in the GTN, and then apply those to a character individually, if I become a subscriber for just 1 one month, all of these are auto-applied to my characters, and kept once the subscription expires? The same goes for Dual spec (my memory is a little fuzzy but I think there is Dual Spec in this game and its only available to subscribers, once I'm no longer a subscriber, that goes away too?)
2: This is a biggie: Makeb (along with any other planet that this expansion unlocks, I'm not really sure, its ridiculously hard to find a good fan website that catalogs just WHAT exactly is added in each patch and how to unlock/reach it) is still accessible after my subscription expires? I'd hate to sink money into the "expansion" and 1 month gamecard, only to find out that at the end of that month, none of my characters can access the planet anymore.
3: this third question doesn't really applies to the Hutt expansion but the newest one. Again I haven't been able to find just WHAT exactly is it adding, and the main website is as ambiguous as a chinese fortune cookie, so could anyone who's already playing it, sorta list me what it adds?
I'm clear that it adds off-the-rails space combat but only for PVP, and you get upgradeable new ships. That's as far as my knowledge goes however. The questions are: Is the pvp also possible with your default ship? (I kinda love my ship on my Inquisitor <3) or is it with new ships? if its a new ship, does it comes with a new interior or uses the default interior? When you upgrade the ship is the visual upgrade just a paint job or an actual modification of the ship's design?
At what level is it accessible? do you gain exp from it? is it a viable alternate way to level up? is it available to non-subscribers? Can you gain credits from it? are there weekly/daily quests attached to it like there are for Warzones? (I'm only buying a 30 day gamecard to unlock as much stuff as I can on my characters, those restrictions really make the game annoying) Can you at least use the new ships on the default space PVE combat?
wow, so many questions :P I hope someone can provide answers to at least some of them.
