Bioware has some great updates for us this week, Starting off with a look at the Smuggler class (Woohoo, Smuggler!) through a progression video.

Next up, Alexander Freed, Senior writer at Bioware walks us through the creation of many of SWTORs tie-in and Expanded universe contributions thus far.

Finally, we take a look at some of the goings-on at last months Pax Prime event, with a Highlight Video.

Smuggler Progression video after the jump, Be sure to look out for the Han Solo and Indiana Jones inspired tip-of-the-hat.

As your character progresses through the saga of Star Wars™: The Old Republic™, you will see them advance as you unlock new skills and acquire or craft superior gear.

Whether running blockades to deliver vital supplies or evading Imperial patrols, the Smuggler must rely on his wit and guile just as much as the blaster at his side. As the price on his head rises and his enemies grow more dangerous, the Smuggler will have to acquire new skills and utilize more powerful weapons and armor to survive.

Get a look at some of the ways the Smuggler can progress and see just a small fraction of the weapons, armor and abilities that become available to him.
