Periodically, the producers at BioWare
will throw players a gift of double XP for a weekend in Star Wars: The Old Republic
, or in the case of last July, three weekends. Over the American Thanksgiving holiday, SWTOR
did it again, and I decided that I was going to take full advantage of it. Laura Williams
, Lee Snyder, and I leveled five characters to level 50 in about 18 hours over that weekend, and today, I'm going to tell you how we did it.
Laura mentioned reading a post on the official forums about two guys who leveled their characters over the July double-XP weekend in 23 hours of gameplay. Being the competitive player that she is, Laura had to beat that record. When I heard this, I knew I had to jump on board. There were some Republic classes that I had not played through yet, and I needed my fourth class buff. When I agreed to run with her over Thanksgiving, Lee joined in, too.
