  9. Yeah, I didn't think I would ever say this, but I'm ready for some more leveling
  10. When you say Star Wars, most people think of galaxies far far away. But all these exotic planets from the movies were filmed on earth. Four of the Star Wars movies were partially filmed in southern Tunisia (the planet Tatooine in the movies) and the good thing is that many of the locations are still in relative good state. You can stay in Luke Skywalker's home (now a hotel) and wander around the desert bumping into moisture vaporators and other Star Wars stuff around the Mos Espa set. Because Star wars is not well known in Tunisia, this article will introduce you to some famous locations from the movies and show you how to get there. So when you go on vacation to Tunisia, check out some of the locations over there. Sometimes you’ll think you are on Tatooine instead of Tunisia. Hint: Open a new tab showing Google Maps next to this page. Copy/paste the given Lat/Long coordinates in Google map's searchbox to see the Star Wars locations on a map. Djerba Djerba is a Tunisian island. It’s well known for its resorts and beach vacations. Two movie locations can be found on the western side of the island. Ben's hermitage and Toshi Station. Ben’s hermitage Lat/Long coordinates 33.740833,10.734951 This little house is actually used by fishermen as a storage. In Episode IV it can be seen as the house of Obi-Wan Kenobi. Ben’s hermitage (Photo by Hoylen Sue) Toshi Station Lat/Long coordinates 33.831411,10.747936 Sidi Jemour is a temple, located some miles north of Ben’s house. It was seen in the movie as Toshi Station in Anchorhead, in a shot where the landspeeder rushes into Anchorhead on its way to Mos Eisley. Toshi Station in Anchorhead (Photo by eckart1) Tozeur Tozeur is an oasis and a city in south west Tunisia. The city is located North West of Chott el-Djerid, in between this Chott and the smaller Chott el-Gharsa. With hundreds of thousands of palm trees, Tozeur is a large oasis. The dates that are exported from Tozeur are well known. From Tozeur you can make trips on a camel, explore the Sahara and get to know the Chott el-Djerid, where you can see fata Morgana's. Furthermore Tozeur is the place to be for Star Wars fans, because there are lots of movie locations around the city: the Lars Homestead exterior, the Mos Espa set, the Sith infiltrator landing site and Star wars canyon. Lars Homestead Exterior Lat/Long coordinates 33.842921,7.779071 Luke's home is located 35km out of Tozeur at Chott El Jerid. Chott El Jerid is part of the vast dry salt lake flats that cover 5,000 sq km on the West side of central/southern Tunisia near Algeria. The little igloo is standing here in the middle of nowhere. Because the Lars Homestead interior scenes were shot somewhere else, the crew had to dig some craters next to it, to make you believe there's actually an underground structure in the movie. Lars Homestead exterior(Photo by Hoylen Sue) The igloo was taken apart after the shooting of the first trilogy but was rebuilt for Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith. Some memorable scenes were shot here, including Shmi Skywalker's funeral in Attack of the Clones, and the final shot of Revenge of the Sith. It's a good idea to visit this location near the evening. When the sun sets in the middle of the desert and with the little igloo as the only structure nearby, you'll get a spectacular view. Lars Homestead exterior sunset(Photo by Könczöl Gábor) Mos Espa Lat/Long coordinates 33.994296,7.842677 This set was built from nothing in the middle of the desert, and still stands. This is not a typical studio tour. Most Tunisians haven't even seen the Star War's movies, but they recognize that there's more value in just leaving the props alone and keep them in good state, than removing them. The Mos Espa set(Photo by Srdjan Djordjevic) You can see the whole town: the gates of Mos Espa; the Pod-racing arena; the gallery and the Mos Espa streets with Watto''s shop, the market and Sebulba's Café. Get there early in the morning and you could have the place to yourself. The Mos Espa set(Photo by maciekke) A few hundred meters away from the set you'll find the Yardangs: protruding bits of sandstone that look like shark fins peeping out of the desert. The Jedi duel between Qui-Gonn and Darth Maul in Episode I was shot here. Yardangs(Photo by Vitaliy Kebin) Sith infiltrator landing site (Oung Jmel) Lat/Long coordinates 34.015353,7.911444 About 6km East of the Mos Espa set lies Oung Jmel, better known as the camel head rock. This was the site were Darth Maul arrived on Tatooine and released the Sith Probes to search for Queen Amidala’s ship. The same location was used for Maul flying over the cliffs after having found Anakin and Qui-Gon. Sith infiltrator landing site (Photo by Jennifer) Juntland Wastes Lat/Long coordinates 34.033572,8.281771 23km North-East of Tozeur you can find Sidi Bouhel, better known as the Juntland Wastes in the movies. This canyon was used in 1976 for no less than 9 shots. Lucasfilm named it "Star Wars Canyon". Also the canyon was used in Raiders of the Lost Ark and in The English Patient. Star Wars Canyon (Photo by Roger Noguera Arnau) In front of the canyon entrance, you'll see the Sandcrawler parking lot. The inside is a narrow gorge walled by two hundred foot high cliffs and a wide, flat wadi that runs from Jebel Krefane down to the chott. In the gorge Luke was being attacked by Tusken Raiders, and met Obi-Wan Kenobi for the first time. Just outside the mouth of the gorge Imperial Stormtroopers attacked and massacred the Jawas who sold the droids on to Uncle Owen. Jawa Rock in Star Wars Canyon (Photo by Roger Noguera Arnau) Tataouine Ksar ouled soltane Lat/Long coordinates 32.788361,10.514989 Our next destination is Tataouine, located in the south of Medenine. The planet Tatooine got its name from this town, and that's about the town's only contribution to the movie. Most of the scenes were shot in the hills and villages surrounding the town. A little further south is located Ksar Ouled Soltane a beautyful ghorfa (grain storage facility) that was used to as a background for some of the Slave Quarters shots in Episode I. Ksar Ouled Soltane (Photo by Michael) Medenine Anakin Skywalker's home Lat/Long coordinates 33.347272,10.492051 Medenine is the major town in southeastern Tunisia. The main attraction in Medenine is Ksar Medenine, an ancient Berber fortified granary. North of Ksar Medenine is the granary that acted as the slave quarters in Episode I. It was used as the exterior the Anakin Skywalker's home in many shots. Skywalker Alley (Photo by Bernard Gagnon) Matmata Lars homestead interior Lat/Long coordinates 33.54253,9.967341 In Matmata you can actually sleep in Luke's home. The Hotel Sidi Driss served as the interior of the Lars homestead. Aunt Beru's kitchen is still there, but except for some fiberglass and wooden frames, and the fresco on the dining room ceiling, you won't find any props. Even so, it is easy to get excited when sitting in the very same dining room that the Lars family used. The hotel also has a well stocked bar with lots of Star Wars memorabilia and a Star wars inspired menu. Lars homestead interior (Photo by Jean-Marc Matthey) Tunisia Not only the Star Wars sites are worth a visit. Tunisia has lots of other things to offer. When you like to travel and want to see different desert landscapes, just rent a car and off you go. Tunisian desert (Photo by roger beau) Source

    Cool Idea here... http://youped.com
  12. Yeah it's supposed to be the best one out there.
  13. Here is a leveling guide I found for those of you that need some help. SWTOR Leveling Guide
  14. Gathering Skills: As you explore planets in the galaxy, you’ll discover a variety of exotic resources and valuable pieces of information. With the right training, you and your crew will be able to scavenge for raw materials, slice computer systems, and track down valuable artifacts. The resources and information you gather can be sold on the open market for a profit, or your crew can use them to craft useful and valuable items. If you like, you can select Gathering skills for all three of the Crew Skill slots available to your team. Gathering Skills include: Archaeology – the ability to seek out imbued items like Lightsaber crystals and ancient artifacts Bioanalysis – the practice of collecting genetic material from creatures and plants Scavenging – the art of recovering useful materials and parts from old or damaged technology Slicing – a skill in accessing secured computer systems and lockboxes to acquire valuable data and rare schematics Crafting Skills Whether your team gathers resources or you acquire them through other means, they’ll be the cornerstone of crafting. Depending on how you choose to specialize, your crew will be able to construct armor, weapons, implants, or other types of useful items and gear. You can use these items yourself or put them up on the open market for profit. You’ll receive Crew Skill reports even while you’re away from the ship, and if one of your companions returns with the schematics for a valuable item, you can assign someone else to start crafting the item right away on the ship’s workstation without having to return to the ship! Crafting skills are very specialized disciplines; for your three Crew Skills slots, you’ll be able to select one Crafting skill for your crew to master. Crafting Skills include: Armormech – the ability to work with hard metals and electronic shielding to construct all types of personal armor Armstech – the skill of constructing blasters, blaster rifles and upgrades Artifice – the delicate work of constructing Jedi and Sith artifacts Biochem –the engineering of performance-enhancing chemical serums and biological implants Cybertech – the technical expertise to construct gadgets and components for Droids and high-tech armors Synthweaving – the art of creating lighter outfits and armors that are imbued with supernatural qualities Mission Skills Mission skills are a unique addition to the Crew Skills system. With these skills, you send companions from your crew across the galaxy on various missions to recover information, hunt down loot, or complete other goals to bring you rewards. When you use a mission skill, you’ll select a companion, choose a mission from an ever-changing pool, and send that companion out after the prize. You can choose from a variety of mission skills – is your crew into conducting research? Participating in diplomatic missions? Trading in illicit goods? There are many options, each with their own set of benefits and rewards. Some can even earn you light or dark side points. As with the other skills, your companions complete these missions on their own time and bring the rewards back when they’re done. Any number of your Crew Skills can be a Mission skill, so get ready to put your team to work! Mission Skills include: Diplomacy – the art of conducting and managing negotiations Investigation – the skill of examining evidence and following clues to discover valuable secrets Treasure Hunting – the ability to track down and recover valuable items by investigating a series of clues Underworld Trading – expertise in the trading of illegal goods and services
