You don't active them....they are just information. They tell you your buffs debuffs, DoTs and stacks. You have to look at them to know what attack has priority.

I am not really the one to ask about the UI. Lynk will tell you mine is terrible. I have 2 really good ones, but they are for healing, not useful at all for DPS running around.

You turn them on

See the lock icon and the what looks like a plus sign right below the level of Mar'ina on the left side of the main quick bar. Click on the plus bar and then under Interfaces: click Extended Quickbars, that will add all the quick bar slots, then you can use the video and link to fix it the way you like. Then save it. You can have more than one and change them out depending on which toon you are using. Like I wrote I have 2 for Brem. One for dailies, HM flashpoints and SM Ops and one when I am really serious about healing.

Oh if you need help, I will not be around this weekend, but I will be back Sunday afternoon/night. However, it would have to be before 7:15 PM west coast time. Have a Ops Sunday night. If not I can do it Monday night. Mar'ina is still in that level range and she has already done that mission.

My skill points have always been pretty random because the system itself could use some polishing when it comes to different abilities... like having two DPS trees that don't differ much can be confusing. In World of Warcraft the trees were always pretty different... so you could decide easier what exactly you wanted to focus on while maybe adding some hybrid points too. Mostly thinking about the Trooper class in this case.

And when it comes to action bars I've been using Lynk's setup for a while now... just download it and try it out and see if it fits you.

No, the skill trees are pretty different and do have clear focuses on how they're meant to be used. For example, the Sith Marauder has three DPS trees which are all focused on doing damage in different ways. The first tree is the Annihilation tree which focused on dot, the aim of that tree is to bleed everything to death and does good sustained damage. The second tree is the Carnage tree which is focused more on direct damage and specialises in burst damage. The final tree is based around Force based attacks such as Smash and Force Choke.

Each class is the same way, each tree has specific uses.

I've got a new UI at the moment but it's geared more toward people who have an MMO mouse with the 12 buttons on the side.

thanks very much Mim and MOnday will be good for me as i have some work to do this weekend, and wont be in the game much myself..or maybe later we will see. thanks again for all the help on this.

and thanks for those other tips guys, where do i download Lynk's UI set up? can anyone give me a linkey? the older one as i dont have a 20 button mouse, i looked at them and it looked too scary for me so i am getting one with about 8 buttons i think, it is still in the mail, i have one with five now. but i have never programed any of the buttons. I have been relying on clicking on the screen, and some of the pre sets.

thanks ..

me

Can download from here: http://www.lucasforums.com/showpost....70&postcount=8

Instructions on how to install it are in the opening post: http://www.lucasforums.com/showpost....76&postcount=1

Then you simply press Esc while in-game to bring up the menu and choose Interface Editor, load my UI and that's that.

t hanks Lynk i was in the game warming up. thanks very much

Lynk or Mim or anyone...what is Singularity and how do i find it so i can know when it accumluates?

Mim said:

Quote:
Strike then only if you have a stack of 4 Singularity
well i cant find any ability or skill called Singularity in the Focus Skill tree or in my abilities or skills or maybe i am blind or maybe it is a nickname for something eles..

I practiced using cycles of things like you suggested and was able to beat up on the CryoTroopers who kicked my can before...so that was a nice improvmenet. I also made Level 34, i will go back to Alderon tomorrow and warm up some more.thanks for that suggestion..i am still mashing buttons a bit at random when it get hairy but i think i am getting better bit by bit.

we will see. It is nice to see green guild chat in the window again.

thanks again for all the help.

It isn't an useable ability.... It is like focus, it is something that you have to build up. You get Singularity by using Force Exhaustion and Force Stasis. Again look at this page. http://www.noxxic.com/swtor/pve/jedi...-and-cooldowns. It shows you the icon for Singulanity and it will show up where your buffs show up above you focus bar.

Is there a way to Disengage in Combat?

Is there a way to get out of a combat once you are in it? i am hoping to wait out a period of invulnerablity that some Sith Harrowers go thru for my main Class mission on Taotooine and if i can disengage and then come back, i am hopeful i can survive... is there a way to leave a combat without having them start all over on their health bar?

i suspect not but just wondered.... as i have seen posts from people with this particular battle which is a bugged one in some ways, where they get away and then come back during this period when the Sith is basically taking no damage at all... i was not sure how they did that.... as usually a fight keeps on going, and if you run they chase you or keep firing at you....but thought maybe there was a force ability that could free you from their combat focus...

i am a Jedi Knight Focus Guardian...at level 34

I know you can get out by dying but i am trying to figure a way to deal with tough foes...and these three Sith are notorious according to many posts i found, there is a bug where your companion gets knocked down by a Sith move and then cant get back up..they are alive but wont fight.

some class specs do, shadow and scoundrel on the republic side, but knight don't have a way. I will be around this weekend (not going to the Texas vs Kansas game), so find me online and I will go help. Can even do it friday night if we do it before the start of Imperial night.

I just did that quest within the last week or so with mari'ina, you need to remember to use unity and heroic moments if something is overwhelming you. Also what level is the mission and what level are you? If you are underleveled then everything will be overwhelming.

Tython Shuttle Not Working

Ok, so I can't seem to get on the shuttle, I click on it but nothing happens. I think it must be down because a lot of others are having the same problem.

Are you at the part of your class story that let's you use the shuttle? You can't leave Tython until you've finished the class story missions on that planet.

Yes, I have no other missions on the planet. The shuttle just does not activate when you click on it. Im guessing the update tomorrow will address this.

Try right clicking on your portrait and resetting the instance... or go into the mission log and reset the mission itself. Or try both.

So I'm back on this game now, but I dont want to level up other characters like I did with my first character with doing all those side quests. I only want to do flashpoints, class quests, wzs(after lvl30), and if I have to, the main planet quests. What exp perks do I need to buy to do this without needing a ridiculous amount of flashpoint runs? I'm also half broke, hence why I'm asking before buying, so I would like to get as few as possible. If it helps, I'm planning on a run of an agent next.

Finally got the Doctor

Well at level 36 i finally got the services of a healer, as my Jedi Knight, Doctor is useful...helps in some ways but he dosent fight as well as Kira so i am switching back and forth. It is nice to have the healing and may make some other quests more possible. But i wonder if it is possible to enhance his fighting ability. I wish they let us have two companions at once, having him AND Kira would be great.

a nice new thing to learn about.

Yeah, on my Trooper I didn't always rely on solely my healer. Being tank-spec and hard to kill as is, if I was overleveled for a quest I'd just take my main dps guy instead to better quickly take down foes(since as a tank my dps was pretty crappy).

I assume you could make Doc better at combat just by getting him better gear that favors his stats. In Doc's case I think it's Cunning Medium Armor(Smuggler gear), so that gear would help both his healing and dps.

Though overall I'd guess he won't be a top tier dps, which makes you be more tactical about whether you get more benefit out of having a healer out to keep you alive or a dps to help finish foes. It's all up to you.

yep i am trying out various methods, he is very useful for tough bosses, he helped me finally defeat one of the Stingers on Balmora those way overleveled Insect Elites that are almost impossible to kill solo.... but he is not as useful when working thru a normal mob of mixed foes. I find Kira is better at that esp the Sith-two Imp Troops-1 droid quartets that are sprinkeled around Balmora. Finally i can smack down Sith with some success !

thanks for those tips on the armor, didnt know that. ...for him. Doc is funny, Kira dosent like him much so they have some funny banter.,...

I still haven't used a healer that much with any of my toons. My first toon was a healer, so using fishboy had no practical purpose. My trooper was leveled with Lynk, everything died too fast to use a healer. My agent has self heals, my shadow used the healer some, but stuff died way faster with 2 dps, so I quit using him when I got Nadia.

I just got Doc too on my knight, been using him just to help get his affection up to help with crewskills (already have T7-01 and Kira at 100%). Doc CC’s everything, so he is useful as his CC opens up a break big damage ability for Sentinel, but playing as a female knight Doc is kind of annoying. Much prefer Kira’a killing to Doc’s healing.

It's too easy to just crutch on your healer(many people never use anyone else once they get a healer, even if they don't particularly like the character of their healer), but like I said before, there are definitely times when you want to use others. Hell, my Trooper-Vanguard loved using M1-4X at times just to see 2 tanks barely taking any damage. Sure it took about 5 times longer to kill foes, but we never got seriously hurt. :P

cool, yes i plan to use Kira a lot...and even the bot once in a while....the Doc has a rather nasty tempermant...well not really nasty but kind of smart alecky...so i will save him for emergencies and touch boss battles for it is nice to have the healing to back one up in a carefully planned rotation with a touch boss.

Right now i am pretty handicapped as my local DSL service has dropped so low in latency that the game is unplayable much of the time, one big freeze fest.... with almost no time in between freezes and stutters, i am assuming it is that and NOT the game itself tho i do see a lot of posts about stuttering..

..so i will have to wait for a promised upgrade to the system that they said they were doing.. just have to be patient and work on other things. but thanks a lot for the advice.

Write up on what you can buy... To spend cartel coins you do not have to go to the store, the store is on your UI. However, I would wait, there are some reports that they are subtracting too many coins for a purchase at the moment and other reports that people buying cartel coins form the website are not get credited for the coins. Day 1 patch buyer beware.

On my account page it says "You will be granted 500 Complimentary Cartel Coins at the launch of the Free-to-Play option." I still have 0 coins -_- Or unless I have to wait a day or two?

I'm finding that the planet Heroics pay pretty well with both credits and xp. I'm not certain if you have to do all of the planet quests, but I've found some of the planet missions seem to have 'prerequisite' missions before they unlock. Slicing and Treasure Hunting seem to be the best credit gathering crew skills, and I send my companions out all the time to do those missions. Also, I've collected a fair amount of credits and xp doing space missions. Just need to upgrade the ship now and then.

Well, if you're not going to be doing a lot of Flashpoints or other secondary questing, just pick the Class mission modifiers, obviously. And if you're going to do the occasional warzone, pick that one as well. Should be all, really.
