You've got some decisions to make when you get your hands on Star Wars: The Old Republic, but none more crucial than which class of character you'll choose to be for the ENTIRE game.
It's a big choice. Bigger than choosing a career, or asking a woman her hand in marriage. This is EPIC stuff.
But BioWare is out to help (sort of). It tackles the question with a look at two more classes: the Imperial Agent vs. Jedi Consular.
BioWare recently released a video giving you an in-depth look at the character progression for the Jedi Consular.
