Well, I'm just now starting out on TOR. I've been meaning to find a new game since WoW's Cataclysm finally forced me to un-sub but just now got around to trying some things out. When I heard you could Free play on TOR now I was like okay awesome, don't have to buy the game and pay a sub to just see if I like it now. I tried it and I actually really love it so far. The story is engaging and the combat reminds me of what I did enjoy of WoW, but much cooler since I can use a lightsaber
My main question is this:
I'm only a lvl 13 Sith Marauder right now. I had originally planned not to sub till I was certain I liked it and till I casually quested/grinded to like level 30 or 40. But so far in game I have seen a lot of things in-game like reduced Exp earned for FTP, and a LOT of features only available to subscribers. So is it worthwhile to Sub earlier rather then later? Would just buying 5 bucks worth a cartel points to be a preferred member or whatever be a major improvement over FTP till I'm ready to sub?
And honestly, whats the big differences between FTP and Subscribers? I know they have a chart but half of it sounds like jibberish when I'm still pretty unfamiliar with the game.
Besides that.. If anyone has any other good tips for starting out and leveling I'd appreciate any of those you might want to share with me also.
Thanks in advance for any input shared, I really appreciate all help, starting a new MMO from scratch is always kind of confusing lol
