Copy paste from swtorstrategies.com Pretty good "handbook" of gaming guides:
Sine the launch of Star Wars: The old republic more then two year ago, we have steadily updated our website with new game guides. Now one year later, it has become increasingly hard to find the the guide you might be looking for. There for are we creating this list for a better overview. This will be a work in progress and we will do our best to keep the list updates.
Anyone with any experience (and preferably known here on the forums) looked over these guides? All I see is thanks from brand new subscribers and one from a long term user saying one of the guides is completely wrong! I've just restarted the game after a 2 year break so am looking for info for beginners, build guides etc., so wondering if these are of any use whatsoever?
the word on my server Jedi covenant and my guildies is to look up info from Keyboard Ninja he is a long time player and is well versed in gearing and specs for most classes. Also you can check out www.noxxic.com they are up to date for 2.5. I use it as a guide to specs. You can also look at this thread http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...Doing-It-Right
If you plan on going merc dps. It has not been updated since 2.2 but gives the BiS for all 72 gear and that will have you HM DP/DF ready.
