FSS 2011: Damion Schubert Video Q&A

Earlier this week at the Fan Site Summit, each site in attendance got to list their top 3 preferences for a one-on-one Q&A session with one of the developers working on Star Wars™: The Old Republic™

Lucky for us, we got our first choice!

Lead Systems Designer Damion Schubert originally answered a few questions on the Crew Skills system for us back in February, and due to the response and feedback from all of our readers, we really wanted to do a followup!

During our interview at the Fan Site Summit, some of the topics we covered included:

  • The Archeology gathering skill
  • Crafting stats to improve your chance to crate
  • Breaking items down into components to gain resources
  • Design inspiration for crafted items
  • More than one companion on a mission?
  • Rare resources vs. obscure crafting locations
  • Quality of items
  • Boss loot tables
  • … and more!

Here at Ask A Jedi, we couldn’t be more excited for the Crew Skills system. We think it’s a truly innovative way to satisfy players who are dedicated to crafting activities in MMOs, while at the same time works for players who want some of the benefits without some of the traditional tedium. And think of the possibilities for expanding this system in the future!

Thanks to Damion for the time this week at the Fan Site Summit!

Enjoy the interview and please let us know your thoughts on the Crew Skills system below!
