How to customize / upgrade you starship?At launch you will not be able to customize the interior of the ship, but you can add torpedoes, shields, weapons and rockets as mods to your spaceship. There are 5 grades of each item and the vendors sell grade (rank) 1, 3, and 5. Grades 2 and 4 can be obtain as quest rewards or by crafting . At Republic/Imperial Fleet, there are two Starship Upgrades vendors:
Republic Fleet – Captain Gek and S-4SO located at Galactic Trade Market area.
Imperial Fleet – Ensign Brukes and S-1A0
These vendors also sell Pilot’s Equipment like Boots, Gloves, Helmet, Pants and Tunic for Fleet Commendations and require Social level II or higher. The prices are approximately 200 – 250 Fleet Commendations.
How to obtain Fleet Commendations?After completing a space mission you will receive 1 Fleet Commendation. There are also daily space quests which give you 3 to 6 Fleet Commendations.
Class Spaceship TypesThere are six different Spaceship types assigned to different classes. The only way to obtain particular Starship is to choose appropriate class:
Jedi Knight & Jedi Consular – Corellian Defender
Smuggler – Corellian XS Stock Light Freighter
Trooper – Rendili Hyperworks BT-7 Thunderclap
Sith Warror & Sith Inquisitor – Fury-Class Imperial Interceptor
Imperial Agent – X-70b-Phantom Prototype
Bounty Hunter – D5-Mantis
All Starships have a Protocol Droid companion:
- 2V-R8 for Empire Side and
- C2-N2 for Republic Side
You may wish to add the different Starport vendors who sell upgrades.
I’m not sure if they are on all planets past the capitol worlds, but I can verify they are on Balmora and I believe on Tat. Shaddaa and Alderaan.
Not that it’s a big deal, but for those of us who are too lazy to wait through the load time for the fleet to upgrade can use planets as we quest to do so.
The level requirements for each upgrade might be useful as well.
Grades 2 and 4 are almost useless – they can be crafted by cybertechs, but no RE’ing is allowed on the items for additional bonuses..
The best gear, of course, is only attainable at lvl 50 for fleet commendations..
Pretty sad because I actually enjoy the space combat portion of the game as a break from time to time.. They really need to fix the bugs though – both “station” runs will crash the game client if you manage to destroy the communications array on the stations.. 🙁
on the opposite. grade 2 is a rare, and as such its just a hitch better than green grade 3, same goes with grade 4 and 5. Even better Cybertech can get recipes for purple versions which are the best known parts as of now.
Grade 2 is much better than 1 and actually better than 3 in a lot of ways. The bonuses they give outweigh the grade 3. Get them from a cybertech. Grade 4 will last you til end game, once you hit 50 you will get them with commendations. Just my 2 cents but 2 and 4 are MUCH better than any of the bought ones!
My client doesn’t crash when that happens; in fact, when I destroy the Comms Spike I get something like 2k credits for completion of a Daily Bonus.
Slight error as the protocol droid you get is determined by Empire/Republic not Light/Dark. Thus a Jedi Consular who plays Dark Side Choices will still get C2-N2 when he/she gets the Defender
