Star Wars: The Old Republic Gameplay
As players progress they will meet a variety of class specific companions, each with their own special traits and behavior. These companions come with detailed armor sets, unique abilities and personal stories that progress alongside the players. Players will also gain access to a class specific ship, which allows players to travel in between planets and engage in space combat missions.
The level plays a major role here - if you're level 10 while the enemy [#] 6, then you'll manage to defeat him. But if you're level 6 and the enemy [*] 9, then it's unlikely to assume you'll win on your own. In the second case gain some experience points to at least reach level 8.
