The 8 Playable Classes of Star Wars SWTOR
In the highly-anticipated game Star Wars: SWTORthat’s due to be released later on this year, there
will be 8 different playable classes that can be selected after you have selected the race of your character. If you’ve chosen to fight on the side of the Force against the evil Dark Side, you will be able to choose from being a Jedi Consular, a Jedi Knight, a Smuggler or a Trooper. If you choose to go the other away and battle against all things good and wholesome (which we all know is a lot more fun), then Star Wars SWTOR will allow you to play as a Bounty Hunter, an Imperial Agent, a Sith Inquisitor, or a Sith Warrior. Let’s start by talking about the good guys, and then we’ll tell you all about the (more fun) bad guys in Star Wars SWTO.
Star Wars SWTOR Info
In the movies, the Jedi Consular were the ones who were kind of behind the scenes and were seen as more of the administrative Jedi instead of the ones who got to go out and traverse the galaxy. In Star Wars SWTOR, this role has been modified. A Jedi Consular will have the option of carrying a dual-bladed light saber combined with increased stealth ability if he or she chooses the stealth specialization or a single-bladed light saber if the sage spec is chosen instead. This class also is able to be melee or ranged DPS, a healer, or even a tank, depending on the choices made at level 10.
The next class in Star Wars SWTOR, and perhaps the most familiar of all, is that of the Jedi Knight. Once you attain level 10, you will be able to decide if you want to go down the road to being a Guardian (tank or melee DPS) or a Sentinel (melee DPS). The Jedi Guardian has only 1 light saber where the Jedi Sentinel will carry two light sabers for dual action destruction and mayhem. Either way, a Jedi Knight in Star Wars SWTOR will be able to blast enemies back with an impressive wall of pure Force power, leaving nothing standing in its wake.
Star Wars SWTOR’s Smuggler class will be able to choose between being a Gunslinger or a Scoundrel. Just as in the days of the Old West, the Gunslinger will carry two Blaster Pistols that he can fire from a longer-range than most classes, and will also know when to duck and run in a tight spot. His alter ego, the Scoundrel, will rely more on stealth and will even be able to heal people if he or she so chooses.
The Trooper class found in Star Wars SWTOR might be the best all-around class that the Galactic Republic has to choose from. Both the Commando and Vanguard specs rely on a long-range weapon to do the bulk of their work, but the Trooper is also trained in hand-to-hand combat from the very beginning so that he can handle himself in any situation. Most people will inevitably choose to play with the ranged DPS features of this class, but it also offers the ability to be a mid-range tank or even a healer.
The first class in the Sith Empire from Star Wars SWTOR that we’ll discuss is the Bounty Hunter. If you’ve watched any of the Star Wars movies, you’ve doubtlessly seen Jango Fett or Bobba Fett, the two most famous Bounty Hunters alive in their time. Bounty Hunters are also known as Jedi Killers due to their ability to go toe-to-toe with them and even defeat them as almost no one else can. This class can be a tank, healer, or ranged DPS.
The Imperial Agent has two classes that are worlds apart in their playability. The one that a lot of people might find to be the most fun Star Wars SWTOR is that of the Sniper class. This is a long range DPS role that can turn the tide of battle with a single shot or lay down a barrage of cover fire to help the team move forward. On the other hand, you could choose to be an Operative, which combines multiple different abilities from Star Wars SWTOR into one super class so to speak. Either way you go, you are going to be laying down serious damage with this class.
With abilities that rival (and possibly even out-perform) the Jedi Consular, the Sith Inquisitor wields unyielding power and destructive capability. Whether you choose to be a Sorcerer or an Assassin, this class will allow you to unleash a lot of damage and even take a lot of damage in Star Wars SWTOR. The Sorcerer relies on a single-bladed light saber to carry out his punishment while the Assassin has a duel-bladed light saber for his. They can even unleash bolts of lightning-like energy from their fingertips to damage and kill enemies.
The final class that we’ll talk about from Star Wars SWTOR is that of the Sith Warrior. While Darth Vader was more of a Sith Inquisitor type, the Sith Warrior was very well represented by Darth Maul. The Sith Warrior Juggernaut wields a single light saber and can become nearly invulnerable in his or her abilities. The Sith Warrior Marauder has two light sabers and unparalleled aggression on his side to take out enemies while barely even paying them any attention or focus. For those who like all out carnage, this is definitely the way to go.
Star Wars SWTOR Conclusion
As you can see, playing Star Wars SWTOR will require some planning in order to have your character come out the way you want it. It also will offer an unending array of choices and customization that we have all come to know and love through other games. Which class will you choose to be in Star Wars SWTOR?
