3 comments
Here are the stats behind Star Wars: The Old Republic. I've gathered these from various sources, and list them here apropos of nothing, but just because you might find them interesting. I know I did.

All the information is from official Bioware information or interviews with the developers.

So, lets start with the basic information first.

Basic Information

Characters
  • 8 character classes (source)
