This article is a good starting point to learn about SWTOR Class. Check out this SWTOR Complete Guides Bundle for more advanced details, insights and gameplay tactics.
The allegiance and classes featured in SWTOR are based on the big screen hit, Star Wars. As such, the two main allegiance are the Sith Empire and the Galactic Republic. The Republic are protected by the Jedi Order while the Sith Lords do the Empire’s bidding. Each of the two allegiance have four classes each from which gamers can choose from.
Starting with the Galactic Republic, the four classes are the Jedi Consular, Jedi Knight, the Smuggler and the Republic’s troopers.
This class is the negotiators of the Jedi Order and adept in political talks as well as has the ability of foresight. The class uses a lightsaber and is introduced with healing powers. A good example of the Jedi Consular is Master Yoda.
A good representation of the Jedi Knight class are Anakin and Luke Skywalker. By using the force and sword skills, these are the warriors of the Jedi Order who’s main aim is to protect the Republic’s good people. The class uses the lightsaber and sometimes full armors into battle.
There is no Smuggler more well-known than Han Solo. This is a rogue-type class who’s survival skills are based on stealth and being agile. The Smuggler is never ever seen without his blaster, sometimes dual blasters as well in SWTOR.
The Trooper class is a force of skilled men and women who signed up to join the Republic’s military forces to fight against the Sith Empire and protect their families and friends. This class probably has the largest blasters and the bulkiest, heaviest armors in the game.
Going onto the Empire’s classes: the Sith Warrior, Sith Inquisitor, Imperial Agent and Bounty Hunter
The Sith Warrior are loyal followers of their Sith Lords. Similarly to the Jedi Warriors, this class is depicted in SWTOR with light sabers along with the use of the Force. A good representation is Darth Vader.
The Sith Inquisitor is the counterpart of the Jedi Consulars for the Empire. The feature skills such as draining the life out of enemies and transferring it to allies. Basically, the Inquisitor is a support class who uses lightening force to wreak havoc. One of the famous Inquisitors is none other than Emperor Palpatine.
This is the Sith Empire’s army. Made up mostly of Sith followers, the army also include soldiers from allies of the Empire. This is a class that uses guns and firepower to deal damage. Protective gear include heavy armor.
This is a techie Empire class who’s equipped with the latest and most advanced technology from head to toe. The Bounty Hunter is best at hiding within the shadows and tracking down specific targets.
