Daniel Erickson Interview – Exclusive Info Revealed

Published by under Breaking News,E3,Interview,video on Jun. 08. 2011.

We had a pleasure of sitting down with Daniel Erickson, lead writer for Star Wars: The Old Republic, and he was nice enough to answer us some burning questions that the SWTOR community suggested us to ask. Here’s a recap of the most important information and you can view the video bellow.

  • It is highly unlikely that there will be a pre-release character creator like the one that was present in Dragon Age and Mass Effect.
  • There will be different size raids for different difficulties. It is not yet fully defined what those sizes will be for the bigger raid, but smaller raid will be 8 man
  • No dynamic content in the same sense as in Rift
  • Number of characters per server not defined yet. Guess is that you can have enough to play each class per server, but not yet sure.
  • Kicking people off a cliff in PvP matches – YES
  • Changing character look after you create it (barber shop) – probably not at ship
  • You can have 5 companions on your main character and 5 companions on all your alts and they will all be able to craft at the same time (offline queue) (please watch the interview for better explanation)
  • Crafted equipment is what you will need to go into a raid to get the best equipment ever on the server (please watch the interview for better explanation)
  • Vanity pets (sly smile – no comment – watch the interview – you will know)

Here’s the Audio version of the interview. The video file is taking forever to upload and we will have full video version as soon as we can get that edited. Thank you for your patience.

    Good info from what I’ve heard so far, but the raid caps concern me. I’m used to the old 72 man runs in EQ, THAT led to some crazy content.

    btw anyone got the DAoC thingy from Daniel? even if i didn’t know that this game is in the right hands, since that words i would know it now ;P

    You guys could have asked about an appearance tab after launch, y’know. It’s not as if there weren’t multiple people in your thread on the forums asking for this.

    Good Job Derek!

    I heard the first minute, the rest i want to watch 🙂

    keep going!

    @Magnus I said it on that thread on forums and I will say it here as well. The appearance tab discussion thread has been active for as long as I can remember. It has always been among the first three pages of the general discussion forum. If Bioware wanted to confirm/deny or even talk about it they would have done that ages ago. In a situation where we had some 50 questions from the community and about 10 minutes to ask them I did not want to loose time on something that is so unlikely to get an answer. I completely understand that this is an important question for the community and , personally, I am a supporter of the idea, however I don’t think we are the ones that can get that answer for you.
