This week’s Star Wars: The Old Republic Friday Update is finally worthy of the label “Friday Update”. Ã‚Â First we have aÃ‚Â progression videoÃ‚Â for the Smuggler, showing off a variety of skills and outfits for both the Scoundrel and Gunslinger Advanced Classes. Ã‚Â Then there is aÃ‚Â developer blogÃ‚Â from onÃ‚Â The Old Republic’sÃ‚Â expanded universe told in the pages of several books and comics. Lastly, aÃ‚Â PAX highlightsÃ‚Â video is available with fan commentary and footage from theÃ‚Â booth.
