The Daily Quest - Will SWTOR's 12X XP Bring You Back?

The Daily Quest - Will SWTOR's 12X XP Bring You Back? -

Behind all the major Star Wars excitement last week, one little detail came out of the SWTOR camp: 12X experience gains on class quests is coming back for all subscribers starting May 4th. Will it be enough to get you playing, and more importantly, paying?

It's funny, because while I really enjoy SWTOR's storyline, I dread going through the collect and fetch quests. What's funny about that is that I don't seem to care about doing them in WoW, WildStar, Neverwinter, or countless other theme parks.  Perhaps is the stark contrast between's SWTOR's excellent story-based questing and it's sub-par "filler content" that make this an issue.

In any case, even though I'll be knee deep into reviewing The Witcher 3 for the site, I do plan on subscribing to The Old Republic for a bit, as there are loads of class quests I wanted to finish before the 12X experience boost ended the last time. It's pretty great that they're bringing it back for subscribers, and I'm betting more than a fair few former subscribers will opt in to level up alt characters or finish leveling some older languishing ones.

What about you? That's today's quest... will the 12X XP gains bring you back, and get you to sub, even for a bit?
