    My team can finally say we've cleared HM TFB, managed to kill Kephess last night (and have previously downed the TFB using a sub's lockout).

    Also Herb, i thought any excess money went to a "Vault" of sorts that would replenish if you spent money from your Inventory? Or was i just hearing things :S.

    As for paying to not show your headgear etc... check out the GTN, you have enough money to buy the unlocks straight out ^_^.

    THX! I actually figured all this out shortly after posting....guess I just got impatient. You do get your money back if you re-sub....but I really don't like my money essentially being held "hostage", and forcing me to pay $15 of real money to get it back. Why should I have to pay to receive something I've already earned? Anyway....jmo, not like it really matters that much!

    GRATS on the clear for TFB HM....I loved everything about that raid except for the tentacle phase on the last boss....way too long and really tested the patience of our guild:D

    I agree about TFB, it was a rather fun instance...

    Which is a shame considering Scum and Villainy just looks so bland...

    After playing this game for the first time just after christmas when I subbed for 60 days from origin, I probably played it 15 days out of the 60 but enjoyed it. Now my sub is up I am just wondering if it's still worth playing and subscribing just for the occasional game, I prefer PVE and trying to decide which is the best value sub. I looked at the 180 day sub but decided instead to purchase the season pass for Battlefront, even though BF is good it in its own way SWTOR has a very good story experience.

    I've just got into this myself and am living the story element. Haven't got into raising or PvP but I want to atv least see each story before I decide whether to continue ...

    The sub is only worth getting if you raid or PvP regularly (as warzones are capped for f2p and operations are inaccessible). Otherwise, f2p is fine, particularly if all you do is story content.

    Sounds good then, I will keep playing F2P for the time being and play through the story.

    As a previous sub since launch that finally ended it at the start of this year.

    I'd honestly recommend just doing F2P for the story unless you're *really* into the group content (warzones, operations) and even then, just sub for one or two months to see the operations and then ditch the sub again.

    With 4.0 Bioware basically stuck their middle finger up at the last remnants of the progression raiding scene so if you're looking for challenging and rewarding progression, then you'll have the former but none of the latter.

    The return of the focus to storytelling has been great overall though, however once you get past your Class Story and move onto Chapter 4+ (aka RotHC, SoR and KoTFE expansions - acronym'd for potential spoilers) you'll find that they're only Faction specific and each class only gets a few pieces of unique dialogue.
