Welcome to my review of the STRIFE Guide.
I gave the STRIFE Guide a four star rating because it over delivers on VIDEO content. Unlike many other guides, the STRIFE Guide uses custom-made High Definition videos to walk you through every aspect of Star Wars The Old Republic MMO. Strife is constantly updating it’s videos so you always have the latest, most recent information available for the game. This is more than just a leveling guide, it is another game companion. One who stays with you and keeps you informed every time you login to the game.
One of my absolute favorite features of the STRIFE Guide was being able to watch the HD videos on my iPhone or iPad and not having to tab out of the game! This is huge when you’re trying to navigate a quest or datacron location or searching for a particular NPC. You can watch the video and just follow it along while you play. This was by far the coolest feature of this guide for me. The only downside to the guide and what kept it from getting five stars is it’s a membership site. It costs $10.00 a month to join. But honestly, if you can afford it you will not be disappointed.

Does it give you step-by-step leveling instructions?
Yes it does. Their set of class leveling guides are designed to show you how to level to 50 in the quickest most efficient time. Instead of wasting hours on end trying to figure out what to do next you can play along side their video guide ywhich will walk you through each quest all the way up to 50.
Does it give you the best builds for your class and spec?
Yes it does. Strife’s Guides are designed to break down each talent tree showing you where to put every single point to best fit your play style, along with how to use all your spells/abilities and make the most of each talent point you get.
Does it teach you how to PvP against any other class in the game?
Yes it does. Their library of hundreds of instructional videos gives you the edge you need in PVP. Strife’s PvP guides cover every topic in PvP working to improve your skill in the Warzones and your overall skill as a player. The videos break down the thought process of the best players in the world teaching you the strategies and skills needed to become one of the top ranked players.
Does it give you the best PvP builds for your class and spec?
Yes it does. You’ll learn where to put each talent point as you level to get the most out of your character’s PvP potential right up until you enter the level 50 only battlegrounds. Knowing how to distribute your talent points at the lower level is crucial if you want to be competitive in PvP
Does it cover all of the Flashpoints in the game with walkthroughs?
Yes it does. They break down and discuss each flashpoint giving you detailed instructions on every boss fight. Watch and learn the best ways to take down every boss so you can guide your group to victory. Includes both regular and hard mode flashpoints.
Does it explain all of the Operations in the game with Boss tactics for each fight?
No it does not. The guide does not go into the Operations end content of the game.
Does it tell you how to quickly maximize your professions?
No it does not. It talks about your professions in their credit making videos and tells you what items you can craft to make the most money but it does not tell you how to max out the profession itself.
Does it explain how your companions work and how to maximize their affection?
No it does not. Again it mentions companions and how to use them to make credits but doesn’t go into the roles of the companions in the game or how to maximize their affections.
Does it teach you how to make millions of credits?
Yes it does. The credit guide videos teach you how to make millions of credits in every area of the game. Learn how to effectively make the most credits while leveling to becoming a master of the GTN. They cover it all.
Does it explain all of the little details in the game you would otherwise miss?
Yes it does. One of the highlights to the Strife Guide is the great community of players it has. With thousands of members you can engage in constructive conversations about each video asking questions and helping each other out or find out about the latest gear, mounts or other items in the game.
Is it updated regularly?
Yes it is. All members receive access to free updates for life. They add new videos almost every day which members can access instantly allowing you to get new content and information on a daily basis.
Does it have a money back guarantee?
The Strife guide is updated constantly.
If a patch comes out and changes the way a talent works, or a bosses abilities in a flashpoint or operation, you will have the information instantly. You can watch a video showing you exactly what has been changed. You can talk to other players on their forums and find out what tricks or tips they are using to play and maybe even point you to a guide that you might have missed. (There are hundreds of them and while their search feature is excellent you could always miss something.)
Updated for the most recent SWTOR Patch!
The Strife Guide covers every aspect of the game from the simplest things like how to get around the space station, to the best strategies for hard mode flashpoints and operations. They are definitely a teaching guide and will show you how to do just about anything in the game. And as if that wasn’t enough, they offer a sixty day money back guarantee. You can try out their guide for TWO MONTHS and if you find it’s not everything you expected you can get a full refund. That is how confident they are in the quality of the guide. Because let’s be honest, you could definitely use the guide for 60 days, level a character to max and then cancel. But you won’t. The updated information is too valuable to lose and if you’re the type of person who loves to makes alts for every single advanced class then you are going to need this Strife Guide for a long time.

Here’s what other gamers like you are saying about STRIFE GUIDE:
- “The videos have been an excellent resource, they are well thought out and updated often.”
- “Your guide has probably been the most helpful resource I’ve found so far! I feel like I’ve been playing the game for years.”

Any complaints about the guide?
Most of the complaints about this guide focus on the fact that it has almost no videos for end game content. It really does stick to just the important information you need to know when leveling. However on their forums you can find plenty of thread were players talk about the Operations and other end game content.
