1. Pick one character you want the rewards Make sure you this character is the first to reach 25 and 50.
2. There are 3 things you can not do on any DvL character until I say to from this point forward .Feel free to complete anything else though.
a. Eternal Championship
b. Run start or run any KoFE until I say so.
C. Buy the Datacron( Do not beat the 10th boss of Eternal Championship until I say to beat the Datacron)
3. Once the character you pick reaches 50 you need to make sure the next thing you do is DvL: Flashpoint Responder if you haven’t completed it. This will Complete Heroic Level and Legacy Level.
4. After making sure you have completed Shadow of Revan, Ziost and the stronghold quest on any DvL character. You can run KoFE and complete the first 9 chapters on the character you picked This character should be 65 now. This unlocks Valiant Level.
5. Complete all flashpoints on the characters side if you haven’t already.
6. Now you need to Level a character on the other side to finish up the flashpoints that are only on the opposite side completing DvL Flashpoint Expert.
7. As soon as Unlock: DvL Flashpoint Expert. Complete DvL act of Valor if you haven’t. Then you need to do Chapter 16 This will unlocked Champion Level.
8. Level the character on the other side to 65.
9. Once you have done that Hop back on the character you want the rewards on run Eternal Championship you can beat all 10 bosses if you havne’t bought the datacron. If you have bought the Datacron than run only the first 5.(You can do 9 but don’t be the 10th boss if you have bought the datacron)This will unlock Eternal Level
10. DO the rest of the event with who ever you want but DOn’t buy the datacron or beat the 10th boss until you have completed the whole event except DvL: Big Spender or DvL: Eternal Champion respectively.
11 Once everything else is completed buy the Datacron or beat the 10th boss on the character you picked for rewards. This will unlock legendary Level.

If you get passed step 6 before chapter 16 is You should be able to do chapter 16 right away as long as you if you beat boss 5 you leveled the character on the other side to 65 and haven’t bought the datacron or beat eternal championship boss 10 unless everything but Dark vs. Light Alliance commander is done.

Daniel provided the following summary of his upcoming dissertation project which involves players of SWTOR, titled “Personality, Motivation and Online Gaming”:

This study should be going live during the month of June, and consists of 3 online surveys linked together in which SWTOR players can give information about how they play the game, common decision making processes, activities they enjoy, and then linking these things to their actual MBTI Personality type. I have been playing SWTOR since launch, and really hope the player community can help me make this project a success in a relatively short amount of time. Also, we can settle the score once and for all whether “story, story, story” is preferred over the MMO bits (since I am not a part of Bioware)! The survey will tentatively go live in mid-July. Follow me on Twitter for updates on the project and the opportunity to participate: @Infinite0utcome.

Teadra is recruiting for his raid team:

Despair is recruiting members for a weekend raid team. We currently raid on Saturday and Sunday Nights from 6PM Pacific Time (8 PM Central and 9 PM Eastern). We typically raid for about 2 and a half hours a night. Right now our focus is on clearing the priority HM of the week and any other HM’s we feel might be fun to jump into on that raid night. We are not a hardcore progressive raid team. We get together to have fun with each other and to challenge ourselves in a fun way. I do not care about a person’s gear when they join my team. Any gear issues can easily be replaced. The only thing I care about is that the individual has a good attitude, can get along well with the core group, doesn’t mind wiping (alot), is willing to have a good time and has at least a basic understanding of their class and rotation. We are currently recruiting for a full time ranged DPS and a tank and/or healer that is willing to substitute on an as needed basis. People joining must be able to get onto our mumble chat and realize that this is a mature, adult raid team that engages in adult humor while raiding together. If anyone is interested they can contact Teadra Jethari or Lilene Moiral in game either via mail or hit me up if you see me online.
