Star Wars: The Old Republic prepares celebrations and promotions for May 4

Sometimes the game tells you it's done, which does save a certain amount of time.
Ah, the fourth of May, a day of celebration for Star Wars fans due to its similarity to an iconic line from the franchise: Han Solo telling Chewbacca, “Hey, hair buddy, happy fourth day of May.” Or something like that. Star Wars: The Old Republic is getting in on the celebration with a new trailer (which you can see early just below, if you want) and a special astromech droid pet for free to anyone who logs in before May 8th. As Anakin said in the prequel trilogies, “You can always get a free astromech droid on the fourth day of any month, especially May!”

The game is also offering a variety of sales on direct-sale items like the Cathar species, new hairstyles, and the Defiant Vented Lightsaber. You can also pick up a free version of the ultimate Knights of the Eternal Throne pack with a Twitch Prime subscription, and you can enjoy some doubled experience through May 15th. All of these should help you celebrate 5/4/17 in style. So enjoy some adventures in the Old Republic, and let all of it bring to mind the iconic words of Obi-Wan Kenobi: “Luke, today is the day after the third of May but before the fifth.”

If you have a Twitch Prime account, or know someone with one, you can get a free level 65 character boost, as well as a free AT mount (~$30-$40 value).

Is this worth doing for the month JUST for the chapters or is it cheaper to sub to get them?

Personally, I’d say buy the sub.You get all of the content in the game, ability to enter operations, etc.

old account or Unsubbed-but-has-done-all 9 chapters?

If I add this to the main account, do I get the pet and 65 boost?

Otherwise, it is free and I would just boost my f2p account if i can still find it
