Community in SWTOR discussions typically refers to the interactions of players.


One of the SWTOR Republic communities

The SWTOR design teams have made focused efforts at supporting this important aspect of MMORPG:

  • Combat events - Flashpoints, operations, and warzones provide the most common opportunities to adventure together.
  • Group dialogue - Players are able to take part in and sometimes influence conversations in dramatic ways.[1]
  • Crafting system - Crafting certain items may be limited so that dedicated crafters become an important resource in the game.[1]
  • Exploration rewards - Datacrons, a specialized type of codex item, sometimes provide significant benefits (e.g., permanent bonuses to character stats). The design team envisioned this kind of lore being gathered by particularly intrepid explorer-players, giving this gaming style a direct value in the game.[2]
