SWTOR Treasure Hunting Crew Skill Overview
Treasure Hunting Overview:
the ability to track down and recover valuable items by investigating a series of clues
Through Treasure Hunting Missions, this skill gives you the ability to acquire Gemstones used to create items for the Artifice Crew Skill. Much like the Slicing Crew Skill, the Treasure Hunting Crew Skill also sometimes returns valuables that can be sold on the Galatic Trade Network or traded to another player. Other possible rewards include lockboxes that can contain items, credits or companion gifts.
Mission Crew Skills can only be completed by your Companions, eventually when you reach higher levels, you will be able to complete 3 missions by 3 companions at once. You can also send your companions out to complete missions while you're logged off as well.
Each companion is equipped with plus bonuses on specific Mission Skills. Only certain classes have access to these bonuses. The list below displays which Companions have a higher chance of success rate (Critical) as well as the ability to complete the missions faster (Efficiency). Please use these companions as a preference over your other companions.
