While looking at the Equipment pages, I got wondering about this: Does anyone have a sense of whether characters can use non-class gear?

In other words, is the gear in an MMORPG usually independent of or constrained by the skill tree?Read more >
Is it just me, or on the Smuggler Character Progression, do we get a little Raiders of the Lost Ark flavor?

Makes me smile even more than the dirty melee trick.Read more >
