SWTOR Smuggler Guide

January 10th, 2011 by Marcus


In Star Wars: The Old Republic, it is 3,500 years before the rise of Darth Vader, and though the galaxy sits on a shaky truce between the Republic and the Sith, it is chaotic and lawlessness is common. Star Wars: The Old Republic is a new Massively Multiplayer Online game, where the player gets to choose their class, and become part of the Star Wars universe.

The game takes place thousands of years before Han Solo joined the rebels, but there is still a need for people with a loose moral code, to help carry contraband throughout the galaxy. One of the classes a player can pick from is a SWTOR Smuggler. As a Smuggler, your character will be called upon to haul cargo from one end of the galaxy to the other. You will have to break a lot of rules along the way, but you will be able to turn quite the profit, if you can handle the pressure.

Though Smugglers skirt the laws on both sides, most have chosen to ally themselves with the Republic, in the hope of staying out from under the thumb of a Sith empire. The Smuggler must be smart, cunning, and always ready to gamble, even on his own life. Although they don’t get the benefits of much armor or big guns, a SWTOR Smuggler is always dressed for action, and usually has one or two light and quick blasters at his side.

You can choose from one of two different specializations, once you have decided on a SWTOR Smuggler for your character. The Gunslinger is great at trick shots, and always happy to dive for cover and shoot out an enemy’s legs. He will do whatever he must to end a disagreement, and his dual blasters are the perfect tools to keep him ready to fight another day.

The second Smuggler specialization is the Scoundrel. The Scoundrel is not worried about etiquette or fighting clean. He always has a blaster for fighting, and a stealth belt to help him get out alive. He will do his best to stay invisible, and always shoots first.

The XS Stock Light is the Smuggler’s ship, and it has all of the comforts of the modern galaxy. Even with all the extra cargo space and secret compartments, it is still one of the quickest ships in the galaxy. Great for hiding the captain if you get boarded, or even fighting your way out of a tight spot.

There you go, a short guide to the Smuggler. For more detailed content and gaming strategies, check out SWTOR Smuggler Guide.
