Speeder Guide

At level 25, you can get your first Speeder (vehicle or mount), at either Tatooine, the Republic Fleet, or the Imperial Fleet. The Speeder Vendor Barik at Republic Fleet – Carrick station is located in Galactic Trade Market (coordinates: -4564, -4841). Tatooine has a better selection of beginning Speeders.

As you leave the Anchorhead spaceport, you will see the taxi and the Speeder vendor to your right (coordinates: 1865,-3285). Examples of the Speeders are found on the lot, but be warned; the Speeders you get may not look the same. All Speeders at Anchorhead cost 8,000 credits and add 90% to your speed. The pictures here are of the Speeders after purchase. Also remember that all details and pictures in this article are from the beta and are subject to change.
Befor you can ride any speeder you have to learn Speeder Piloting skill from your class trainer. 

There are 3 Speeder Piloting ranks:

  • Rank 1 – costs 40,000 credits
  • Rank 2 – costs 210,000 credits
  • Rank 3 – costs 330,000 credits

Speeder’s characteristics 

  • Speeders level 40 and 50 will give you good/excellent protection against being knocked off
  • None of the speeders gives you any other attribute than speed and protection against being knocked off.
  • Speeders will not protect you; if you take more than a couple hits of damage, the speeder will disappear, and you will be on foot, and in combat.
  • You cannot ride the speeder inside spaceports or other buildings.
