Types of missions[]

Aside from the normal Empire or Republic missions, there are other types of missions.

Area missions[]

Area missions are acquired when entering certain areas of a planet.

Bonus missions[]

Bonus missions are often given while doing missions. Completing these missions aren't necessary but give additional XP and bonus mission chains can give additional rewards.

Class missions[]

Class missions are specific to each class and drive the storyline throughout the game. Class missions will sometimes take place in class story areas.

Companion missions[]

Companion missions can either be conversations that provide XP and influence or missions that have objectives that need to be met. Companions will indicate when they have a mission by an icon on their portrait saying they would like to speak in private or a mission icon over their head while on the player's starship or cantina.

Crew Skill missions[]

Crew Skill missions provide a way of gathering crafting materials, gifts, and other goods at a cost. The list of available missions changes from mission to mission. Companions have a chance of failing the mission, returning with no reward. Both gathering skills and mission skills have missions available.

Daily missions[]

Daily missions are missions that can be repeated daily. These missions can be found on Belsavis (including Section X), Black Hole, CZ-198, Ilum, Makeb, and Voss. GSI daily missions can be found on Alderaan, Hoth, Makeb, and Tatooine. Other types of missions can be completed daily including heroic and space combat missions.

Group missions[]

Group missions are specific to flashpoints and operations.

Heroic missions[]

Heroic missions can be found on every planet and require at least a group of 2 players to complete. These missions take place in heroic areas and involve strong, elite, and sometimes champion difficulty mobs. Heroic missions can be repeated daily.

Space combat missions[]

Space combat missions are acquired on a player's starship and reward XP and Fleet Commendations. There are also missions that can be completed daily.

Weekly missions[]

Weekly missions can be obtained on the Imperial and Republic Fleets and reward credits and Black Hole Commendations. These missions include PvP, heroic flashpoints, Section X, and operation objectives.
