My review of SWTOR Secrets.
I gave SWTOR Secrets Two and a Half Stars. The content it does provide is very good. The problem is it’s missing many of the features that other guides offer. I will do my best to detail just what you get and what may be lacking for you in this guide.
SWTOR SECRETS focuses mostly on the guts of the game: Power leveling, talent point selection from levels 10 – 50 for each class, dominating with PVP, and farming credits. Quite honestly, if it didn’t include these things it wouldn’t even have made my reviews list. These are the basic modules any guide for Star War The Old Republic must have. If these nuts and bolts features needed to power level in the game are all you want in a guide then this certainly has all of that. It also does have other pointers in between as well. There are little extras in the guide that can mean a lot like selecting the right crew skills or which companions to take with you for different missions. But it does not have all of the bells and whistles other guides come with.
The fact is there is more to SWTOR the game than power leveling and dominating your class. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a competitive MMO, but this guide focuses almost entirely on only that aspect of the game. It feeds off that drive inside all gamers of wanting to feel like a Pro player and not a noob. However, it doesn’t address many things that are just as important and make up large complexities within the game.
If you are looking for information on Datacrons, Flashpoints, or Operations, there are none to be found in SWTOR SECRETS. This is a content rich game with critical options that set-up your future for advanced story-lines and missions down the road. Everything you do counts! Those nuances are not written into these guides like I’ve seen with others. And that is what sets Star Wars The Old Republic apart from any other MMO out there right now. The result is it feels lacking. It doesn’t assure you get the most out of the game in ways that make the game itself so fresh and unique.
I also wasn’t crazy about the purchase options. It’s broken down to give you a choice which is always nice. But the choices are a slightly over priced class specific guide for $27 for each advanced class, or all of the advanced classes together for $47.

Yes it does. Tried and tested leveling paths by their successful in-house beta testers make sure you are leveling at top speed Their leveling builds and rotations are without a doubt the fastest way to go.
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 spoon feed you the perfect builds and rotations that will put you practically invincible and keep you at the top of the DPS/HPS meter.
Does it teach you how to PvP against any other class in the game?
Yes it does. It will tell you how to take on any opponent if PvP along with the rotations and counter spells you should be using at every cooldown.
Does it give you the best PvP builds for your class and spec?
Yes it does. Getting your butt kicked in Warzone? With their detailed PvP builds from level 10 to 50, have peace of mind that you’ll be doing your fair share of bullying!
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?
No it does not. It doesn’t go into the nuts and bolts of each profession and tell you to maximize it in the shortest amount of time possible.
Does it explain how your companions work and how to maximize their affection?
No it does not. It DOES tell you what companions to take on certain missions with you (whether you need a tank or healer of DPS) but it doesn’t tell you how to maximize their affections and finish their storylines.
Does it teach you how to make millions of credits?
Yes it does. Learn how to farm credits the fastest with their guide. It doesn’t teach you how to use the GTN but instead shows you how to use your professions to make the most amount of credits possible.
Does it explain all of the little details in the game you would otherwise miss?
Yes it does. Barely. It gives you a rundown on specific gear drops, making money from dailies, etc. It doesn’t go into the details other guides do like mounts and vanity pets and hidden easter eggs.
Is it updated regularly?
Yes it is. Their gaming insider provides them with all information on patches, hotfixes, and expansions. Be the first to know, and hit the rest before they realize it!
Does it have a money back guarantee?
Yes it does. They have a full 60 day “no questions asked” refund policy. You can try out their guides for a full 60 days and if you find they are not what you expected then you can get a full refund.
