In Star Wars The Old Republic, Troopers have plenty of options available to them for leveling up, but I would say there are a few particular “best” SWTOR Trooper leveling builds.
SWTOR Trooper Leveling Builds – Advanced Classes
Since you can follow the storyline quests and get all the way to max level this way, you can get through the game as any advanced class.
However, if you aren’t sure what you want to play, I would recommend leveling up as a Commando. The Commando gets great ranged DPS talents thanks to the Gunnery talent tree and can even get a bit of self-healing through Combat Medic.
By combining these DPS and healing talents, you can create a very strong character which is able to deal good damage, has little downtime, and is quite hard to take down, which is ideal for the questing environment.
SWTOR Trooper Leveling Builds – Commando
If you do decide to heed my advice and play as a Commando, you can either max out DPS by going fully into Gunnery or splitting points between Gunnery and Combat Medic.
If you put all your points into Gunnery, you will be able to deal more damage, but also have more downtime and have less survivability. However, it is still a valid SWTOR Trooper leveling build, especially if you feel like you really aren’t taking advantage of the healing talents.
I will be adding some specific builds shortly to this guide, which you can find in our section: SWTOR Commando Leveling Builds.
Star Wars The Old Republic Trooper Leveling Builds – Vanguard
If you plan on tanking low-level flashpoints as you level up, you may want to level up as a Vanguard. If you do decide to do this, make sure you are putting points in Tactics, as this is ideal for solo leveling.
If you end up tanking an instance, you naturally will want to switch over points to Shield Specialist, but you never want to solo as a Shield Specialist as it is just too slow.

SWTOR Trooper Leveling Builds – Wrap-Up
By following the SWTOR Trooper leveling builds given to you here, you can level up quickly and efficiently. I recommend leveling up as a Commando; you can always change over to Vanguard once you reach the max level.
