Star Wars: The Old Republic, or SWTOR, is a new and upcoming MMORPG game by Bioware, a leading developer of quality RPG titles. There are tons and tons of players eagerly awaiting for SWTOR to release and one of the most frequently asked questions about this game is how the economy and currency work.
In SWTOR players can gain credits which is the game’s main currency. You can obtain credits in a number of different ways: by completing quests, killing enemies, raiding or by selling items to NPC vendors or at the auction house.
In just about every MMORPG to ever be released, the player with the most money and resources is normally the winner, of course providing that he has hit the level cap in whichever game he is playing. SWTOR credits will be no different.
By making, more credits than your competition you will be able to buy or craft the best gear in the game. Making credits in SWTOR will mainly be done though completing missions and quests but also though trading and creating items.
Developers are Bioware have promised a deep crafting system. This opens to the door to certain players who like to make loads of SWTOR credits whilst they sleep. It is simple in most MMORPGS that I have played and I have always done a lot of crafting to make money and better my character. We are hoping that you will be able to craft every item in the game. This would include weapons, armour and consumables like medic kits.
There are four ways to make credits in SWTOR:
- Missions or quests
Gambling is a new one for MMORPGS, which we know Bioware will add at some point since they feature it in nearly all their games. It will be an interesting way to make credits and some players may even become professional gamblers in SWTOR.
As always the most money is going to be made from crafting and trading since you will be selling items that every player needs and will hand over their credits for.
With the SWTOR companion system most players will not only be buying for themselves, but also their NPC companions. This will increase the market for any players who start trading. Getting into trading early is always important since you will be able to dominate certain markets. Learning about niche markets in SWTOR will have a huge increase to the amount of SWTOR credits that you make.
