comment Is it more profitable to put crafted items onto Auction?
You forgot that you can reverse engineer the items to receive back some of the materials, which can be used to create new items. Which translates into: more skill increases for the same amount of starting materials.

comment Where does The Old Republic fit in with KOTOR?
There are several references to Revan in TOR, and in-game those events are referenced as three centuries ago.

comment Which crew skills complement each other?
Looks like a lot of the crossing lines could be solved by rearranging some icons. E.g. swapping Archaeology and Treasure Hunting.

comment How do Dark Side and Light Side points work with regard to your faction?
Dark/Light and Empire/Republic are totally orthogonal in the game. All combinations are possible.

comment Is Origin required to play the digital download version of TOR?
@NickT I wouldn't know. I just reported the official reply to OP's question.

comment Is Origin required to play the digital download version of TOR?
@NickT The beta client did not require Origin to be downloaded. That same client has patched itself and should enable me to play the real game (according to the official FAQ). So yes, I never had to install Origin. OTOH, no, that route is not available anymore for people who want to install it today.

@NickT Yes, it appears so. BTW, I tracked down an official FAQ entry - see my answer.

comment Is Origin required to play the digital download version of TOR?
I was in the beta, and didn't need to install origin. My client has patched itself for early access, and I still don't need origin. I recall reading that I didn't need to install origin for running the game, but as all official SW-TOR forums have been wiped after the beta, I can't link to an official post. However, for those who have not been in the beta: you'll have to install origin to download the game. As dvds are not available yet, it's unknown whether that route will require origin.

comment What level can I choose my advanced class?
In my experience, if you complete all soloable side-quests, you will be at least level 11 when you've completed the starting planet. If you rush the main story quest and skip everything else, you could leave the planet at about level 7.

comment First suggested Heirloom piece to get?
if you only have enough gold (or tokens) to buy one chest and one shoulder, buy the cloth version. The stats might be useless, but it can be used by all your (future) alts. If you're up to it, you could even mail them back and forth if you level your alts at the same time.

comment Is it realistically possible to play Diablo 2 LOD on Hell difficulty using a necromancer with all points in summoning?
Decrepify + Clay Golem + act2 NM defense hireling = very slow Baal, who will never summon his brother anymore. Although it might take some time, your army will kill him without too much trouble. Killing Diablo is the main problem (although his seals are straightforward).

Summons scale much better than Bone Spear does.

All points in summoning is not recommended. A couple points in Corpse Explosion and one (just one) in Decrepify or Lower Resist are very useful. Most points in summoning is very playable, though.

comment What skills exist that will help my hero level up faster?
Note that each campaign map has a level cap. So on some maps, the highest level skills will never be available.

I'm aware that this answer is not a good answer to the question. I'll delete it once I've found a good question to which I can copy it.

@JasonBerkan See my other answer.

comment What is the best strategy to defeat Uriel?
I'm surprised you say you have almost all the skills/spells in those two branches. There are so many useful passive skills scattered around the tabs, that I barely have enough skill points left to fill out one complete tab, let alone two!

comment What is the best strategy to defeat Uriel?
By the time I had completed all side-quests and cleared all of the map (all by my main hero), my army was large enough to kill Uriel on the first try.

comment Can I use a macro to leave a group?
If the group sucks, it's much more polite to announce "next try will be my last" than to suddenly leave. And lying about it ("My wife needs me to leave") is certainly wrong.

comment Can I use a macro to leave a group?
You consider "listing items on the AH" more important than staying in your group? And you're too lazy to spend more than 1 click on the apology to your group members? You deserve to be on lots of /ignore lists!
