The best use of your personal starship in The Old Republic is taking part in one of the various space combat missions that are available. As you progress in levels, the space combat battles become increasingly challenging, as is shown in the Aeten Defense and Kalee Fortification missions. To prepare you for defending a friendly space station from swarms of enemy attackers, Swtorhub.com has put together a complete guide, including combat info and strategy tips.
The enemy bombers are really tough and if you just use your missiles on them, it will take 3-4 missiles to destroy a single bomber. Your best bet is to use a combination of blaster fire and missiles to destroy the bombers. If a bomber is smoking, it will only take a single missile and a couple of shots to destroy at that point. You should set your Power Conversion Module to increased blaster power when enemy bombers are approaching. Start shooting at the bombers as soon as you see them. With some good shooting, you should be able to destroy a fair number of them before you swing in behind them as they fly over the space station. Once you’ve cleared a wave of bombers, set your Power Conversion Module to increased shield regeneration to get your shields back to full. You will take a lot of fire when you’re directly behind the bombers as they can shoot behind them. Don’t be afraid to use your Electronic Warfare Pod to temporarily protect you from enemy fire.
