Hi guys and gals:

I was wondering if SWTOR is going to add in the future an expanion. So if you wanted each of you companion characters to have their own set of crew skills.

The game could be set up for you to play it that way.

Now, I don't know if this idea has been brough up before and talked to death.

If it has please let me know what the over out come was.

It sure could add more to the game. If each of you companions had a special skill to put them a bit a part from the other in game and kinda made them special.

In their own way

Well... That would pretty much eliminate the need for a trade network at all. Since with 5 companions (6 with your shipdroid) you'd have 15 (18) skills to choose from.

Since a few skills are only usable for some classes that would mean everyone being self-supplying in all equipment-slots.

I'm not seeing it happening.

But it opens up the game more.

Having only 3 crew skills. Seams to limit the game a great deal.

It could also be linked in to the companion affection set-up.

Each companion feeeling special that they aren't all limited to work with the same skills as the other companions.

You could also have talks with your companion and ask them what skills and talents they are good at and set-up you companion/crew skill as such

It might open the game up more for solo play, but the way it currently is opens the game up more for server-wide economy.
