So, I started a new character on a new server, a Sith Sorcerer, and everything was fine until I got to Taris.
Taris is my least enjoyable planet. It's dark, has an odd flow and a lot of rakghouls. I hate rakghouls, especially as a caster. I realised I was progressing a little too fast too late, and ended up finishing both my class story and the planet's story at level 33. (I grouped up for the final mission which made it cakewalk.)
I remember Taris being a horrendously bad zone for optimization but figured they had sorted most of the problems out, and since I was such a lower level than what is recommended for Quesh (36+ I believe) I decided to try and do the bonus series for Taris, usually I hate the bonus chains since they're generic kill X talk to Y style missions and are literally a cut off from the main plot of the planet. Taris is ofcourse no exception.
But, the optimization problems are still rampant around the Taris bonus zones; and feel even worse. Tracking and completing objectives in the areas you go to murder your framerate and my PC is easily capable of getting 70+ FPS with everything on high, so it's no pushover. I abandoned the missions and got off Taris as fast as I could before my game locked up.
So now, I'm sat on my ship at level 33 with an objective to go to a level 36+ zone and no way of going back to Taris to do the bonus chain in the hopes I can get to a reasonable level for Quesh. I'm not even sure the bonus chain would give me enough experience to get me to 35.
Is there anything I can do besides spamming Space Combat for experience? Or would I be ok to go to Quesh at level 33 and not have my levelling flow ruined, or get annihilated by the higher level mobs on Quesh?
Sorry for the wall of text, found it difficult to dissolve what I had to say into 3 or 4 lines.
Thanks for reading.
