In this video, Star Wars the Old Republic discusses an interesting aspect to the game called “crew skills”.
The skills available to you will be: Diplomacy, Scavenging, and Crafting. These options will give your various crew members the abilities to make and find new items for you, go on secret diplomatic missions, or even scavenge scrap metal from a destroyed enemy. We think this idea is absolutely awesome and it will take a lot of the mundane aspects of crafting and farming out of the equation. This game looks better and better with each update.
The Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ galaxy is rich with valuable resources, high-tech schematics, and intriguing opportunities, but what hero has time to devote themselves personally to so many pursuits? That’s where your crew comes in. The Crew Skills system allows you to take advantage of everything the galaxy has to offer without getting in the way of your adventure! You’ll assign your crew of companions to gather resources, craft useful and valuable items, and even to undertake their own missions, bringing you and the rest of the crew a variety of benefits and rewards. Crew skills keep you in the action while you take advantage of all the galaxy has to offer!
