BioWare shared some Smuggler secrets today, announcing Bowdaar as the official Chewbacca of Star Wars: The Old Republic along with the shiny new starship for Smugglers that you won't have to win a game of sabacc to get your hands on.
"A Wookiee's not the only necessity," BioWare stated. "A Smuggler wouldn't be able to do much smuggling without a personal starship. Check out the new starship section of the HoloNet, and make sure to look at the Smuggler's Corellian XS Stock Light Freighter. It's the ship that can make the Balmorra run in just a handful of parsecs, and if you choose to play the Smuggler, it will be yours."
