I have been a Star Wars fan since seeing the first film (Episode IV) at the cinema in the first week of release in London. However I have been playing SWTOR for less than a week.
My first character (a classic Jedi Knight) got to 12th level, but could not leave the planet because the game had not yet fully downloaded. So I played a second character - a Jedi Shadow - which was only 11th level at leaving the planet. Not sure how bad, or good, this is.
My Shadow has just left Coruscant at 22nd level. Only ever taken part in one multiplayer mission - got voted off... presumably because I am very slow (as is my computer, I expect, compared to any gaming-specific machine).
Oddly (maybe) my Shadow was never invited into a guild, while my Knight was... although nothing related to the guild ever happened - except I joined a Discord channel which was very quiet and my messages were ignored by those who posted after me. So the entire game experience so far has been very non-social. (I am a FtP).
Anyway... I am wondering...
How do you define Veteran? Heroic 2+? Legacy Experience?
Is there a place to compare how well (badly) one does?
Is there a place where other game terms are defined?
Solved! Go to Solution.

@JimWUK I've moved this discussion to a new thread since it's diverged from simple introductions now. I can see you've been hitting and overcoming some obstacles! If you come across anything that is preventing you from progressing your main class story or chapters, you can post in the Technical Issues forum or submit a ticket by emailing email@example.com

Hello and welcome! Apologies for not noticing your post earlier. If I understood correctly, you're looking for a Glossary of Terms.
To answer your first questions:
- Veteran is a mission difficulty. The levels are Story, Veteran, and Master. In more common terms, these translate to Medium, Hard, and Very Hard, respectively.
- Heroic missions are a type of mission that are slightly harder than normal, usually involving more Elite (gold frame) and Champion (gold and silver frame) enemies. The number (2+, 3+, 4+) indicates the recommended amount of players.
- Legacy Experience is earned for everything that also grants you regular experience, only it's shared between all your characters that are on the same server. Leveling up your Legacy allows you to unlock some cool perks. Check out the Legacy Window by pressing Y in-game.
As for finding other terminology, the first place I'd check is the in-game tutorial. You can access it from the main game menu while you're logged in.

For the mobs that are elite, when you click on them and look at their character portrait you will see either a silver, gold or a silver and gold icon on the top right side. This indicates that they are elite mobs.
The in-game tutorial by pressing T should have pictures. Their difficulty is also indicated by some text below their name on the portrait which will say weak, nothing for normal, strong, elite, champion, boss.
Difficulty goes in this order:
Weak = No icon just weak text
Normal = No icon or text
Strong = text and silver icon
Elite = text and gold icon
Champion = Text and gold and silver icon
As far as the map it expands and shoes more as you explore. What I would recommend is if you are having difficulty is work on increasing your level vis missions on lower level planets.
Also I would open your map and on the bottom left corner of the map is enable "Show Exploretory Missions". This will enable additional missions for XP which are hidden by default.
Then just go to lower level planets to complete them.
That was a misspelling. Corrected it to say "complete".
Can you provide a screenshot of what your visibility looks like?
I have noticed that areas you have explored still show as unexplored if you start a mission that goes there. I have been to Lord Grathan's Estate at least twice with this character... and yet still shows as if unexplored.
On the screen shot requested, I ran through the same stuff with a new character, and found I could not even find the mission character that a kind soul took me to. Let along the junction. In the end I seem to have found my wy in via the area north of Lord Grathan's Eastate
Attached is my current map, on which I have 'circled' the junction I just could not find. Not much help I expect.
