I’m not all ‘doom and gloom’ about SWTOR… Leading up to the release of the Rise of the Hutt Cartel expansion, the SWTOR team gave us our first ‘double XP’ weekends for the game.. and they were awesome.
In addition to the double XP from the weekend itself, legacy XP bonuses, and consumable XP bonuses from the Cartel Market stacked too.. now with the guild XP bonus.. you can conceivably get almost triple XP during these weekends. So if you’ve got a couple of alts to level, but are tired of repeating the planet story arcs.. now is the time to level them! Load up on the consumables (hint: check the GTN, they’re available cheaply there, and without having to buy/spend cartel coins).
Here’s the times of this summer’s double XP events:
- June 21, 2013 (1:00PM CDT / 6:00PM GMT) to June 24, 2013 (2:00AM CDT / 7:00AM GMT)
- June 28, 2013 (1:00PM CDT / 6:00PM GMT) to July 1, 2013 (2:00AM CDT / 7:00AM GMT)
- July 4, 2013 (6:00AM CDT / 11:00AM GMT) to July 8, 2013 (2:00AM CDT / 7:00AM GMT)
Jump in and level! Finish off those unplayed alts, finally get to level cap! Already at level cap? Your legacy XP is doubled this weekend to!
I should go tell my son… he’ll probably get his Bounty Hunter to 55 before I get mine there now…
