KILLER GUIDES

 

My Review of Killer Guides for SWTOR.

I gave Killer Guides a Three star review.  The reason is because it’s options are very limited.  Killer Guides is the first guide company I ever used.  I actually own a lifetime subscription to all of their game guides.  They write guides for just about any MMO game you can think of.  With the lifetime subscription I get updates to all their guides AND access to all of their new guides free for life.  So right about now you may be thinking “So how come only Three stars??”  Well let me give you an example.  I’m a big Fantasy Baseball fan.  I started playing over 20 years ago.  Now when I started, there were no big websites with instant stats and online drafts, etc. (heck there was barely even an internet!).  So we did everything manually using stats found in the daily newspaper and our own spreadsheets.  And it worked and we had fun playing.  But as the game progressed more options became available and we slowly stopped doing it all manually and found websites that made things easier and faster.

Well, Killer Guides Star Wars The Old Republic  is a great guide, but it’s fallen a little behind the times.  While other sites have online videos, forums, databases and tools, Killer Guides is still strictly a PDF paper guide.  It’s like the old days when we did things manually and by hand.  Now, let me state clearly, the INFORMATION inside the guides is top notch!  They cover walkthroughs, stats, leveling, datacrons, builds, flashpoints, operations, etc. The volume of information is huge! Also, all of their guides are easy to follow and understand.  The PDF format of the downloaded guide comes with quick links in the contents section to get you to the information you are looking for fast.  And the guides are updated pretty regularly (but you have to download the guide each time it’s updated and save it on your hard drive.)

The best feature of Killer Guides for Star Wars The Old Republic is it’s price.  Their SWTOR game and leveling guide is over 140 pages long and sells for only $29.99.  But honestly, I suggest you get their special SWTOR package which gives you access to all of their class and credit making guides as well. This includes 26 individual guides for ONLY $89.99.  That’s less than $3.50 per guide!  So as long as you’re not looking for fancy video’s and graphics, this is a great guide with top notch information at a great price.

Does it give you step-by-step leveling instructions?
Yes it does. It walks you through each quest in the game and gives you a planet by planet breakdown of the fastest leveling path available.  You will definitely level faster than people not using any guide at all. The SWTOR guide provides step-by-step quest walkthroughs that help you avoid costly mistakes and focus on the best experience and item returns. You’ll quickly rack up equipment, faction gains and levels along the way.
Does it give you the best builds for your class and spec?
Yes it does. No matter what advanced class you are playing you will get the absolute best builds for tanking, healing and DPS. They explain the mechanics of each advanced class so you know before you start whether a certain class will fit your playstyle.
Does it teach you how to PvP against any other class in the game?
No it does not.  It’s focus is on leveling your character and other PvE aspects of the game.  It’s PvP content is minimal at best.
Does it give you the best PvP builds for your class and spec?
No it does not.  The guide touches on PvP but does not give you builds or specs designed specifically for PvP.  It is definitely more of a PvE Guide.
Does it cover all of the Flashpoints in the game with walkthroughs?
Yes it does. They give you a complete rundown on all available flashpoints. Not only will you learn everything there is to know about each flashpoint for a fail-proof encounter, but you’ll also gain access to proven strategies shared by some of the most experienced power gamers.
Does it explain all of the Operations in the game with Boss tactics for each fight?
No it does not.  It doesn’t focus on end game content much at all.  It’s goal is to get you to experience all aspects of the game while you level.
Does it tell you how to quickly maximize your professions?
Yes it does. Get the complete rundown on crew skill choices. Learn which harvesting skills go with which missions and crafting skills, and what combinations are the most suitable for each advanced class. The guide makes sure you get things right from the get-go and avoid wasting countless hours leveling up the wrong craft.
Does it explain how your companions work and how to maximize their affection?
Yes it does. Every class has their own set of companions that will journey with you throughout the game. These companions all have different skills, likes and abilities. Killer Guides takes all of the guess work out of getting the most from your companions both in their affection and abilities.
Does it teach you how to make millions of credits?
Yes it does. Learn about the most effective credit-making strategies from Killer Guides SWTOR Guide. You can literally double your credit income within hours. Money will simply stop being a concern for you. Never again go without the best gear and skill sets money can buy.
Does it explain all of the little details in the game you would otherwise miss?
Yes it does. Learn how to get the most exclusive mounts and vanity pets. Where all of the datacrons are hidden on each planet that permanently boosts your stats. They also have a complete gear guide that tells you where the best gear drops come from for you class.
Is it updated regularly?
Yes it is. The guide updates about twice a month with changes to the game and any new content that was put in.
Does it have a money back guarantee?
No it does not.  They say they will answer any questions or concerns you have with their guides within 24 hours but they do not offer a money back guarantee.

 


 

Any complaints about the guide?

Biggest complaints are the guide is slow to update for new content and is only available in a PDF format.  Also there is no members section Forum or Videos.  Now some people like having a written guide sitting next to them at the computer they can follow along with.  It all depends on personal preference.
