Star Wars: The Old Republic Q&A Hints to the Future, Confirms Dual Spec Soon

on February 11, 2012 1:30 PM

BioWare is stepping on the gas of communication for Star Wars: The Old Republic, with a brand new forum feature named “Commuity Q&A“, letting players post their question in a forum thread during the week and then coming around to answer some of them each Friday.

Yesterday the developer published the first batch of answers, sharing quite a few tidbits about the future of the game and especially about what’s to come with update 1.2, scheduled for next month and looking more and more like a really large one, not only content-wise. 

One of the most important pieces of info is the advent of Dual Spec (the ability to have two different skill setups and to switch between them as the situation requires), letting Guardians like me change between a tanking-oriented specialization for PvE and a more damage-oriented one for PvP, or Commandos freely move between damage and healing.

There’s also a quite interesting explanation on how bugs are prioritized and addressed, and that’s something every MMORPG player should read and keep close to his heart (especially those that tend to think they “know better”).

More juicy tidbits like equipment customization, target of target and treasure hunts complete the picture. You can check out the whole Q&A here, and see if there’s something for you.
