here here Just going to copy some of the bigger things down here - Gathering Skills * Bioanalysis ? the practice of collecting genetic material from creatures and plants * Scavenging ? the art of recovering useful materials and parts from old or damaged technology * Slicing ? a skill in accessing secured computer systems and lockboxes to acquire valuable data and rare schematics Crafting Skills * Armormech ? the ability to work with hard metals and electronic shielding to construct all types of personal armor * Artifice ? the delicate work of constructing Jedi and Sith artifacts * Biochem ?the engineering of performance-enhancing chemical serums and biological implants Mission Skills * Diplomacy ? the art of conducting and managing negotiations * Treasure Hunting ? the ability to track down and recover valuable items by investigating a series of clues Personally, I'm glad that they didn't copy the WoW style where you have to spend hours farming and gathering things. Just send another party member off to do the work. Not so sure how I feel about party members gaining light or dark side points for me though.
