Star Wars: Old Republic characters revealed

Final character classes, Sith Inquisitor and Jedi Consular, detailed

The Sith Inquisitor and the Jedi Consular have been revealed as the final two character classes in the upcoming Star Wars MMO, Star Wars: The Old Republic.

First details come from German games mag, PC Games, which details both classes following a recent EA showcase event.

The Jedi Consular is, according to translations of the mag, a strong support class. "Contrary to the revealed Jedi Knight, several weeks ago, is the Consular not to be found in the first line. Although he can swing the lightsaber too, he masters several ranged fighting skills like 'Sleep', 'Lift' or 'Smash'. The class can be tuned into damage or healing," says the report.


Conversely it says "The Inquisitor is the opposite of the Consular and is a fighter from the second line," detailing Force powers such as 'Shock' or the 'Lightning Charge', which apparently cooks enemies.

The mag also describes an area attack, 'Overload', which damages as well as stuns surrounding enemies for several seconds. Juicy stuff.
