Shaddoe at MassivelyOP shared a tip today in his Hyperspace Beacon post that I found extremely helpful, so I thought I’d pass it along.
Edit: Update. This module has been changed and is no longer necessary. The Gree White Acute Module vendor is gone now.
I’ve seen a few people lamenting the rapid pace of the 12x XP boost that subscribers are receiving throughout the summer months. I play regularly in a group of 4 people, one of whom is only on a preferred account status and wouldn’t be getting the boost. We were concerned about over-leveling him by too much, but now we don’t have to.
Go to the Combat section of the fleet in the alcove where the skills mentor resides and you’ll find a new Gree vendor who sells one thing, a White Acute Module which is a reusable/bound item, which costs zero credits. Use it, and you’ll get an 8 hour buff that stops you from gaining 12 times XP for story quests, but doesn’t counter any other XP buffs. Pretty spiffy to have this option.
