I'm thinking about playing Star Wars Galaxies a few hours a week just to blow off some steam. A casual player, if you will.
I'm not really interested in playing a full combat character; plenty of other games to do that with. I'm looking into more quests than combat. Something like a shipwright would be an obvious choice but I don't want to be absent from combat entirely. I'd pick shipwright if I can also be another combat profession.
I pretty much have it narrowed down to spy, medic, and smuggler. I really would like to be a smuggler but from what I've heard, the profession is lacking; not many quests for it. I also heard that there is no spice in the game which makes it seem pointless. What do you all think about smuggling?
Spy actually sounds like a good, compromise profession. Are there plenty of quests in the game that will allow me to just be a spy and not run around killing everyone? Also, is it good for PvE?
How does Medic compare to spy? I'm thinking about this one as well.
Are the quests between the three totally different? I'd imagine smuggler is but what about spy and medic? I mean, do medics have their own quests?
Also, if I choose to be a spy or a medic will it be hard for me to eventually get my own ship, like a YT-1300?
Thanks for the help!
