Double XPing

Most of my reduced game time has been spent in SWTOR lately.  The main reason being: double XP!  I wrote before about how double XP weekends actually make me play less, but that is only when it's not such a weekend!  Now that it is, I can't wait to get into game and make some progress.

I've been playing on my Trooper for the most part.  He has been deployed to Makeb for a while now.  One issue I have with the newly introduced planet is that the missions don't seem to give enough XP to keep you on level.  I found myself 2 levels short of what the next mission required.  Not that it is a major issue, as the difficulty is low, but I like to be on level.

Double XP changes all that.  I was able to catch up to the mission level pretty easily thanks to doing some warzones and their associated missions.  When I hit level 52, the Macrobinocular and Seeker Droid missions also became available to me.

So far, I did the first part of the Shroud missions (Macrobinocular).  I actually enjoyed it quite a bit.  I rode around Coruscant and found the objectives.  That resulted in a nice 'chat' with the Shroud which was cool.  They want me to go to Taris next, which is where the Seeker Droid missions start up.

I'll probably save Taris to do this week sometime as it looks like it can be done at my own, often interrupted, pace.  I will turn in the completed missions on the weekend.  For the double XP weekend, I'll be doing my Makeb missions since I will have longer play sessions.
