Proposal
To have a crafter show there levels so they can use droids that they crafted for themselves. And for non droid engineers to be able to use a weapon to defend themselves.
Motivation
To be able to use your own crafted droids.
Justification
To be a complete character.
I have a master droid engineer and I'm not able to use my own droid because i have no combat levels. A crafter cant hold a high level weapon or use a high level droid to guard himself. i dont expect my crafter to do heroics. But it would be nice to be able to defend themselves from low level creatures and npc's.

I do agree that this feels odd... But there would need to be some carefully thought out limitations around this.

I guess it would be a separate PV but droid engineers being able to heal "repair" droids similar to the CH heal would be rad.

DE can use droids though, just not combat droids. Thats like a guy that can build a car but doesn't mean he's able to drive an F1.

Ya sort of my thoughts as well. Tho on legends I can use my armor and weapons. I would advocate to make levels not combat levels but rather character levels and allow traders same level as their combat counter part. Would solve several issues with one change.

As Scottyboy said as a Weaponsmith he cannot use any weapons either. But then do we really need to?

On live NGE we did get given levels so defending yourself at a Harvester or Factory was a benefit. However as we know R3 is a blend of CU/NGE, if they start giving us full on NGE stuff then it will turn into a full NGE version of the game.

I'm a Master DE too and if you want a combat Droid although mostly pointless make an R5 with a combat rating of 50 and no Armor it will be level 5 and usable by us!

The main thing I want is to be able to make Droideka's and Battle Droids without the silly NGE abilities. Hoping they come with Mustafar.
