Catching Up With Star Wars: The Old Republic

Posted By Mike on February 25, 2012

As has become the norm, Friday marked another Community Q&A for Star Wars: The Old Republic over at SWTOR.com as members of the BioWare team answered a variety of fan questions. This week's round of answers included information regarding animation updates, the lack of short traveling to your ship, PVP issues, Space Ports and more. Click here for the full post and take a gander below for a sample excerpt question and answer.

"TrueDND: Currently, the incentive to choose other Crew Crafting Skills outside of Biochem is minimal due to the fact that, once you reach max level, all gear that is acquired through PvE and PvP is better than all crafted equipment and mods (mostly through the Commendation and token vendors). Is this being looked in to?

Georg Zoeller: Absolutely. With the upcoming Game Update 1.2, we are adding endgame crafting for all professions. This includes augment crafting, the ability to crit-craft custom (orange) gear with augment slots, new endgame schematics, new color crystals, expanded and improved research and reverse engineering and much more (we're up to 4 pages of crew skill related patch notes in 1.2. alone)

Combined with new features such as the ability to extract base-mods from purple items (including the set bonus) and the improved color matching feature, crafters of all professions will find themselves in a lot of demand once the update hits."

This week's round-up doesn't stop with the Community Q&A as we have a few more TOR-related links to pass your way as well.

FleshEatingZipper.com reports that Patch 1.1.4 is live and provides a rundown of what gamers can expect from the update.

The engine used by Star Wars: The Old Republic is referred to as the Hero Engine. According to VideoGamer.com, over 5,000 developers have now licensed that engine.

In an interview with Kotaku.com, BioWare's Greg Zeschuk notes, among other things, that the average TOR player logs approximately 4 hours of playing time per session.

And last but not least, GoozerNation.com goes in depth discussing the raids of Star Wars: The Old Republic (playing as a Sith Marauder).
