Star Wars: Old Republic classes detailed

From Jedi to Bounty Hunter

New information on the class system for Star Wars: The Old Republic has emerged from Gamescom.

It was all presented in a nice handy list at the German show, which details the weapons each class will use as well as two different types of character for each class.

Here it is:

  • Imperial Agent - Operative (uses blaster rifle or energy blade, stealth, burst ranged damage) & Sniper (sniper rifle, dps - counterpart of Gunslinger)

  • Sith Inquisitor - Sorcerer (force damage, single bladed lightsaber) & Assassin (double bladed lightsaber, stealth, burst damage)

  • Bounty Hunter - Powertech & Mercenary

  • Jedi Consular - Shadow (double-bladed lightsaber) & Wizard (healing / single lightsaber)

  • Trooper - Commando (heavy armor, tank) & Vanguard (dps)

There's also been some new information on the Jedi Knight advanced classes:

  • Sentinel: Dual Light Sabers; Saber Fighting Specialist; Melee

  • Guardian: Single Light Saber/ Heavy Armor; Leadership/ Party Buffs; Tank


Details of the various species present in Star Wars: The Old Republic were released a couple of weeks ago so now you have a pretty good idea of how the game will be populated.
