Swtor Farming Guides

This page contains all of the best farming locations I have managed to come across while playing Swtor. Since there are two factions in Swtor I have split this page into three different parts, one will be strictly for Republic farming guides, another for Empire farming guides and the final will be farming guides that are available to both factions. Each of the farming locations will contain a map, showing you exactly where it is, a detailed description of the type of loot and mobs you will find while farming there as well some pictures of the location and a video.

Also I will create an hourly gold estimate for each location, allowing you to easily pick the best location without too much difficulty. If you have any farming locations you'd like to see added to my website, or even a location that you found particularly interesting and would like me to experiment there and see how much gold I can make an hour, please use the Submit A Guide link at the bottom of any page on my website.

List of all Swtor Datacron Locations

Since the game is not out yet you wont find much information on this page. I'll update it much more once the game comes out and I begin to discover the best farming locations
