Class choices...
« on: Nov 27, 2011, 03:01 PM »
I'm stuck between a Jedi Knight and Consular :(.

I think I'm going to go Consular>shadow though because double bladed lightsabers are pretty badass, but I'm not sure if I'll like the combat style.

Anyone else having second thoughts on their class so far? Imo all the classes just seem so cool it's hard to pick just one lol!

Yeah, I think a lot of people are torn between a few classes. Because all the classes are relatively balanced it really comes down to what kind of roll you want in groups or operations. Do you want to tank, heal, dps, ranged, melee, the list goes on.

Personally, I enjoy playing a class that will be important to LD50's success. Which would most likely be a tank or healer. Although, DPS classes are just pure fun to play.

I wish Lightsaber choices weren't restricted to class styles :(.

but from what I hear shadows can be off tank(ish?)

I just want to play an active role in combat. When I played eq2 towards the end I shifted towards maining a bruiser and that was definitely a fun role to be in, though at times somewhat hectic, but I love being in the middle of things. XD

Yeah, shadows can be avoidance tanks. Similar to brawlers in EQ2. You can also be a DPS shadow. Just depends on your play style or even what we need in certain operations.

Yeah I'm definitely gonna try out shadow then today, I want to play what is needed too, so I hope it isn't a problem if I decide to switch at launch since I listed myself as a sentinel already :(.

I haven't read too much on the AA trees yet, but from what I hear all of the classes can pretty much do anything ( to a degree ) if specced down the appropriate tree.

All in all I'm really enjoying this game and can't wait to play it with you guys. Thanks a ton for giving me the chance!  ;D

So I really liked Trooper, might be making my first char one unless I really, really like the jedi knight gameplay. Not sure which advanced class yet.

Tried consular/shadow and IDK I just wasn't feeling it. Plays too much like a mage :(.

Switched back to sent and yeah jumping in with dual light sabers and just started fucking up shit regularly. Definitely going sent @ launch.

For the first ~10 levels the consular isn't really a melee class, you become  more of a melee oriented class when you get the AC itself. Would say however if you're not patient or a fan of heavy stealth classes the shadow definitely wont be for you but if full on melee is your thing you're better suited with the sentinel however you have to deal with the fact that you serve no other purpose aside from dps and I'm not sure if that's a con or not really..

Wasssuuuupppp.  I know a few of you from Everquest 2, and I am looking forward to playing SWTOR with everyone but Surrena.  Put me in coach, I can throw Strikes!!!.

I plan on going commando, and playing one also.  If the guild has room for me but needs a different class just let me know.  I am usually pretty good on anything.

I'll be rolling a vanguard for sure. I'll have a jedi guardian on the side as well I'm sure, but just wasn't feeling it as much as I would have liked.

Ive been thinking of going sentinel..anyone know how they are dps wise? Made a gunslinger in beta, but not so happy with having to hide behind crap.

I have played the Shadow till 15 and the Knight to 11.  The counselor for the first 10 levels are mage based but when you choose your subclass you can be either a mage or a melee based toon.  If you choose the shadow you can spec him to be an off tank, dps, or a balance of the two.  Same with the mage you can spec to be a healer, croud control or a balance of the two. Personally I like the shadow dps.
