My Recommendation:

Killerguides Leveling Guide is currently the best one and my highest recommendation, closely followed by¬†Strife SWTOR Leveling Guide. I definitely recommend Killer guide (it’s even the cheapest one!), but if you’re looking for an alternative and mind the difference in price, you won’t notice much of a difference in quality and you might as well get Strife. In their current state other guides aren’t worth getting in my opinion.

Some of these guides are supposed to be updated often with free new content, so I’ll be keeping this post updated accordingly! If you’re a guide author and want your guide reviewed here you’re welcome to contact me!

    I can’t say for other guides, but Strife is pretty cool. Helped me get to lvl30 in 3 days, all while collecting datacrons and maxing my crew skills. great pick for anyone, thanks for recommending it.

    I really recommend Strifeguide, its great to know that you can just watch videos and learn so much! Rather then reading guides, you get it all with the videos, very helpful guide and thank you for this recommendation! Very excited to see what Strifeguide has to put out in the future
