This page is extremely far from being finished. I will be working vigorously once Swtor comes out to update this page with some of the most accurate and detailed leveling guides you can find. During beta I was able to test many of the noobie zones and I can kind of give some half way decent information from what I learned while playing but none of it will be so detailed that you can follow it step by step. It will all be a loose outline.
One thing I would like to add about Swtor that many of you don't know and probably aren't expecting as it is vastly different than any other game is... Each class in Swtor will have a different leveling experience since most of the main story line for each class is instanced and each class has different instances. In addition to that most of the classes have even different starting zones. Both Jedi classes on each faction will have their own unique starting zone and then the other two classes (Trooper, Smuggler) (Bounty Hunter, Imperial Agent) will share a noobie zone as well.
Since Swtor has two different factions, Republic and Empire, this page will be broken up into two different sections, one for each faction. Also, in the future I may break it up further to include each of the instanced quests for each class, but I have more important guides to get done currently.
This section here will cover a lot of information that will help you level quickly and efficiently in Swtor. When it comes to leveling up in games there are usually quite a few tips and tricks that will help you level quickly. And by that I mean faster than if you did not know the few tips and tricks. If you've gone over the Getting Started section of my website then you probably know most of these tips and tricks already, but if you didn't then I will be going over them again just for you!
Below is a list of each of the things you will want to keep in mind while leveling up to increase the amount of XP you earn per hour. Read each over carefully, commit it to memory and if you need any more elaboration on what I mention follow the link provided in each tip or trick.
- One of the most important things that will help you level extremely fast is to do every single Bonus quest you come across.
- Once you leave the noobie areas for each class and find yourself in either the Republic or Empire main cities, you will want to collect every Tradeskill Codex entry for a lot of bonus xp.
- While leveling up through Swtor you will want to keep an eye out for any Codex entries that you can grab. You can tell if an item has a Codex entry available because it will be glowing a light bluish color.
- If your inventory is getting full, you can have your Companion return to town and sell any grey items that you have in your inventory. For more information on this click here.
Those are all of the tips and tricks that come to mind now, I will keep updating this page as time goes by with any more tips and tricks that come to mind. In the mean time, here are the leveling guides for The Republic and Empire that I have done so far.
Here is what you've been waiting for, the Swtor Leveling Guides! As aforementioned this page will be broken up into two different sections, one for Republic and one for Empire. Once I get done the general outline for each faction and provide you with enough information for 1 - 50 to be a breeze I will update this section further by including each classes unique storyline quests.
Swtor - Levels of all the Planets

This will help you out in picking the next location to go to while leveling. Granted this won't help you as much as a leveling guide will, but it is a start.
