Planet and Bonus Series Level Ranges

It’s been quite a while since I last posted.  Mostly over the convening months I just have lacked the drive to really write about anything I was playing.  I’ve spent time in Everquest 2, Lord of the Rings Online, Rift, various sundry single player games and most importantly Star Wars online.  Pretty much from the moment I played Beta Weekend the rest of the time has been helping my friends organize our guild:  Order of the White Mask.

Best Grouping Experience Ever

So over the last few weeks since launch I have been playing Belghast my Jedi Guardian over on the Shien PVE-RP server.  Prior to launch a good friend and I made a pact to level as a duo, so we have been leveling Tank/Healer as he is playing a Jedi Sage.  So far it has been one of the most enjoyable leveling experiences so far.  The group bonus however has lead us to end up grossly over level at any given point in the curve.

This could be due to the grouping bonus, or the simple fact that we are religious about doing every quest, getting every bonus objective, and making sure to weave in the various planetary bonus series.  After a conversation last night that left us confused as to the order we are supposed to be weaving the bonuses in, I decided to do some research this morning.  In no place could I find a list of all the planetary levels, with the various bonus series weaved in between in the proper level range order.

As a result I took the time to compile this list, figuring if I was having trouble finding it, a good number of other people might be too.  Some of the level ranges might be slightly off, but this should be a good base order compiled from the level ranges shown in game, and various quest level ranges.

  1. Please change your level for Alderaan bonus series [Empire]. I got one level from it and that’s it. No way I could have gotten four. I went from 39 to 40 and completed it’s entirety.

    • The level ranges are not what you should expect to gain, but a rough guesstimate of when those quests are good for you to complete. Like I said I compiled the ranges from a combination of quest level ranges, and assorted information online.

  2. I don’t think you even have to have the storyline quests for a planet finished. I got the Tattooine bonus series before I had finished the storyline quest.

  3. I’ve been soloing my way up, trying to catch a couple of friends who got in on early access, and I find I’m way over level as well. I tried to just do storyline quests to get back in line, but it’s so hard to walk by those quest givers 🙂 I’m also doing the space dailies every day, which has been 1/3 of a level almost every day. I’m level 33 and I haven’t finished chapter 1 yet. How are the bonus chains unlocked? Is it just finishing the storyline quests?

    • Honestly far as we can tell, bonus series have two components. First you have to be of the appropriate level to get the quest, and two I believe you have to have completed at least your class quest to receive them. However since there is a drought of hard knowledge about how the mechanics work this is just speculation.

      So far there have been three ways I have received the quests. Firstly, especially if the bonus occurs directly after the normal quests, you will sometimes find a quest giver at the spaceport directing you to the bonus area. Secondly, there are often times NPCs on the fleet station that will send you to a bonus series area, this happened to me for both Nar Shadda and Alderaan. Lastly I have received one of the later bonus series from one of the mission terminals.

    • Good catch, updated. Yeah that totally was a cut and paste error 🙂 I originally created this list for my guild forums, and figured what the heck, might as well actually blog it…. since I don’t seem to post much anymore 🙂
