F2P and 1.5 Have Arrived

Today, SWTOR goes free to play (and 1.5 arrives).  It will be interesting to see how many people jump back into the game and what will happen to the servers.  I plan on keeping my subscription, so hopefully their priority queue stuff works out.

I will be sitting on approximately 2600 Cartel Coins when the servers go up.  I really have not given much thought on what to spend them on.  You see, I am a bit of a hoarder when it comes to virtual items and currency.  I'll drop two grand on a computer, but a few hundred tokens?  I can't pull the trigger.

The Cartel Packs ( Black Market and Crime Lord ) are one likely possibility, but just like any other form of gambling, I could be out of coins very quickly.  Unlocking legacy perks is another option.  The experience ones are tempting, as it would save me some credits.  As is the ship board items like the GTN terminal.   Although, I don't spend that much time on my ship.

My Trooper is now level 48.  I did not make my goal of 50, but I should be there within a weeks time.  Then I can start my HK-51 quest line and possibly do a Story Mode Operation.  After that, I could try and get my Valor (pvp up a bit, or just play on my alts.
