are the servers diverse or are there thousands of jedi running around with maybe one or two bounty hunters.


Well 1/2 the classes are force users. I'd say there is a disproportionate amount of jedi/sith but I don't think it's real bad. There are a good amount of Troopers/BH because those are some BAMFs. Not a whole lot of smugglers/IAs but I think that'll change once people see how powerful they are. Sith inquisitors are everywhere in pvp but that's mainly because sages/sorcerers are considered the best pvp class atm. Once a new class is considered more powerful 1/2 of them will switch.

It should even out I think. Each class is pretty unique and interesting.

There is crafting, but not like in SWG. I wouldn't call this game "hack and slash" but others might. It's quest-driven leveling.

About the EULA, that is really weird, I've accepted it once since installing.

Ability lag and stuff - never had this problem at all, animations on my Shadow start as soon as I hit the button, assuming I am not stuck on GCD.

Like Rift, SWTOR uses a GCD system - just about every ability forces a 1.5s CD on every other ability. It allows time for animations to complete and allows players who aren't super insane fast to still be competitive.

Level 34 now, the story for sith inquisitors is awesome. That is part of the reason I think this is going to be better than wow in the long run. The individual storylines are incredible, I have to level to get to more of the storyline...

Haven't had to kill anything yet.

I just started a new Sith Inquisitor because I've been told it was awesome. Only level 6 right now, but I will say that I am enjoying it more than the Jedi Knight story. Plus you actually get some force abilities which was kind of lacking with the Jedi Knight.

There technically aren't any 'kill 20 of these' quests, each quest has dialog and a purpose. But tons(nearly every) quest has a bonus quest associated with it where you have to kill X of Y that's triggered as soon as you kill the appropriate mob. But it's not that bad because you're going to kill those mobs anyway and don't have to go out of your way and feel like you're grinding. Keep in mind too that you mostly kill packs of weak mobs so killing 40 or 50 doesn't take long.

you very rarely need to kill 50 for any one stage, too. I think I've seen that maybe once so far outside of a group quest, but that's only up to level 36 so far.
