I was able to purchase my SWTOR level 25 mount without issue. How did I do it. I bought nothing from level 1 to level 25 unless it was absolutely needed. I measured each credit and ended up with 65k in credits at level 25. It could have been closer to 80k, but I did spend a little on the Armstech Crew Skill. I’m riding in style.
I sold every grey item that I got my hands on. I did not expand my bag space until after getting my mount. I would send Mako off to sell the grey items. That only takes about a minute. You can do it too.
