    Any one wondering if we will be able to play as Zabraks and other species if we join when it becomes free? Cause i really want to play as a Zabrak.

    See, it says about limited Access to species, so, heres the main question, which species do you thing will or will not be included for the free players, and which ones should or should not be included.

    I'm guessing the limited access has to do with the unlockable species outside the usual sets.

    My understanding was that it was going to be limited to humans, but would have the other species available on the Cartel Shop

    You can play as those three listed by Likewater

    But I haven't heard anything about species you can unlock via the Legacy system with in game currency. Right now for instance, if a player takes a Twi'lek to level 50, then Twi'leks will be unlocked as playable for all classes. Since you can only play as zabrak, human or cyborg, taking a Twi'lek to 50 isn't possible. However, there is also a system via the Legacy system in which you can pay a large sum of in game currency (I think it is 1,000,000 or 1,500,000 credits) to unlock a species as playable for all classes, without having to play through 50 levels. I have not heard if this will still be possible on the Free To Play option.

    E.G. you make a human character, save up 1,500,000 credits, and then purchase the Twi'lek and have access to that species on subsequent characters.

    You have three choices.

    I'm a human Jedi named Kade-Aeon Helix aligned with the Republic. I've been playing for just about 2 days and am addicted!!!

    I don't know if that's a good thing . . .

    If I had a computer capable of handling TOR, I might actually do this.

    Servers are back up and I've just had a quick sample of the Republic classes. Think I'll stick with Trooper for now - it feels like being in one of The Clone Wars episodes. :)

    Note that while other species are (presently) locked, they do appear to be unlockable by FTP players by paying credits, cartel coins, or reaching level 50 with a preexisting character of that species.

    FYI, you can play multiple characters up to level 50 before you have to start paying. I think I'll just subscribe once my main reaches 50. I'm addicted, plus I need my SPRINT back. LOL

    Well, it ran okay here, and my computer is ancient (except for the OS which is Win8 now). Since I upgraded to paid account, however, it takes a lot longer to load.

    I had some bad lag the other night (technically morning, it was 2:30a-3am-ish) and got disconnected twice. It was the first time I can remember having lag issues.
