Guide to Advanced Class Selection in The Old Republic

Posted Thu, Dec 01, 2011 by Sardu

Easily the most frequently asked question throughout the beta for new players in The Old Republic, we’ve put together a short guide to provide all you need to know about how to select your advanced class. The process itself is relatively simple, but we’ve also included some tips and related information that all new players should be aware of before making their advanced class decisions.

As soon as you complete your final class quest on one of the four origin worlds (Hutta, Korriban, Tython, or Ord Mantell) you will be given a quest that sends you to your faction’s Fleet Station.

Before heading out, however, you will want to be at or very close to level 10. Completing all available quests (including Heroic quests) on the origin worlds will put you just over the level 10 mark. If you haven’t completed the Heroic quests yet, they are all easily manageable once you obtain your first Companion if you’re unable, or choose not to find a group for them.

While it’s entirely possible to complete your origin world class quests and head to the fleet station as early as level 7 in some cases, I’d advise against it as explained in the following step in the advanced class selection process.

I really don't understand racism in the real world. People are what people are, regardless of skin pigmentation or where their ancestors came from. There's really only one real-world race - the Human Race - and I loathe everyone equally.
