SWG Thought of the Day: General Expertise

Certainly not my own idea, but it's been discussed by several on the official SWG forums. The idea is much like the Beast Mastery tab in that it's available to everyone, only the expertise nodes therein use their own point system apart from the expertise points gained by levelling up.

Personally, this is a great way to get back some of the "sandbox" aspect that was the real success of this game early on. If these General Expertise points were made available via quests or other in-game accomplishments, it would also add some gameplay content apart from character customizations.

It's why I am a big proponent of the Droid Commander and Gardener systems. They're great ways to customize a character template; but we need more! TKA, Ranger, Fencer, Pirate, Gambler, etc.
