Hello, I just started playing Star Wars: The Old Repulic a week ago using the Free Trial to level 15 thingy. Now that the game is going to Free-To-Play, I am having some questions that I couldn't really find the answers to.
1. Will I have to start all my characters over or will my free trial characters transfer to free-to-play?
2. Will I be able to chat in at least general chat? With the free trial, I could not chat with any one, unless they whispered me first.
3. Will I be able to raise my crew skills above level 40? I hate having that freaking window pop up every time scavenge something.
4. Will I be able to use that Galactic Trade Network thing? In the free trial, i couldn't.
Sorry if these are really dumb questions, but like I said, I am VERY new to the whole SWTOR experience.
PS: What are some SAFE SWTOR sites to hit up for information? I know of MMOC and Torhead, and that's it.
