for solo leveling, is it wiser to level in tank spec or dps spec, since you get the the healer girl fairly early.

it's story caught me the minute i finished ord mantell and i want to pursue it.

You'll be ok leveling as tank. Lots of group quests and you will get in them faster and learn your role on the way.

I'm actually a bit torn, seeing as guaranteed Ion Cell procs/Ion DoT makes up a little for not having Gut, and Shields gets a couple elemental damage boosts - AKA everything you use as a Vanguard that isn't straight-up Mortar Barrage/Sticky Grenade, Gut, or High-Impact Bolt.

But Tactics has Gut, AKA Punch Stuff.

Hmm.

you don't get her "fairly" early. If you really want to get her as early as possible then you have to skip all side quests in Coruscant and Taris.

Otherwise, you are stuck with possibly one of the worst starting companions, Aric Jorgan. Love his voice though.

i just took sorceror and operative to 20. my sentinel is 32. i have an 11 mercenary and 10 vanguard.

i've been busy, first three planets are inconsequential to me now. however, trooper is the easiest class in the game, it'll blow through it fast.
