Hello! I am a brand new player to SWTOR, and have a question about the Cartel market. I was going to wait until I was a higher level to purchase cartel coins, but I have been really wanting to train a crew skill so may end up doing it sooner (I hate being able to gather but not craft, or craft but not gather lol). Anyways, my question is what are the essential things to purchase in the cartel store long-term? I don't care about temporary boosts or cosmetic things, I mostly just want permanent unlocks for my character or account. I was thinking of getting the following, but as I'm still new I don't really know what they all do or whether or not they're necessary:
Artifact Equipment unlock
Event Equipment Requisition
Guild Bank Access
Cargo Hold access
2 Crew Skill slows
Section X (though will hold off until I level some more)
Do those sound like good things to get for someone on a limited budget? Anything else that would be recommended, or recommended against? Also another big question I have is I noticed that even premium players have a currency cap of 350,000 credits. Will this have a major impact on me when I reach the end-game? I just want to know sooner rather than later if this will cause me to suffer at higher levels...I would hate to get all the way up there only to find I can't progress at all or buy new gear due to a credit cap! I don't personally believe in paying recurring subscription fees for a game either, so I will have to be content with premium status.
