This article is a good starting point to learn about Jedi Knight. Check out this SWTOR Jedi Knight Guide for more advanced details, insights and gameplay tactics.
Star Wars: The Old Republic is a new Massively Multiplayer Online Game, where the players will get an exciting gaming experience, and the chance to play a character in the Star Wars universe. There are many different classes available for play, including SWTOR Jedi Knight.
The game takes place around 3,500 years before Darth Vader makes his rise to power. The galaxy sits in a strenuous truce between the Sith and the Republic after decades of war, and as a SWTOR Jedi Knight it is your duty to help ensure that the evil Sith do not find a way to take control. The Jedi are a symbol of hope for the galaxy, and their skills are honed through years of training and dedication. Peace is the hope of every Jedi, and the galaxy looks to them to find it.
When playing a SWTOR Jedi Knight, your character will be able to wear the classic, traditional Jedi robes, as well as leather or even heavy armor. Of course, as a Jedi Knight, your character will wield a light saber to help bring down the Sith. Other than the Force, a Jedi’s light saber is the best tool he has to defend himself from a Sith attack, or even blaster fire.
There are two specializations to choose from, once you have decided to be a SWTOR Jedi Knight. Guardians have perfect concentration, and their control of the Force allows them perfectly smooth movements, even in heavy armor. This makes the guardian very hard to defeat, and they make for great leaders on the battlefield, as well as off. The second specialization choice is the Sentinel. The Jedi Sentinel is a beacon of focus and control, and are great for finding holes in an enemy’s defense. They are continually training and learning, and even have the ability to learn to use two light sabers at the same time.
When traveling around the galaxy, the Jedi Knight has a ship that was custom built for the Jedi Order, called the Defender. It is a Corellian ship, and it was chosen for the Jedi when the council decided that Republic military vehicles were not suitable for the Jedi’s special missions. The ship has areas for diplomatic meetings, a medical bay, and of course, a place for your Jedi to rest and meditate on the Force. The defender also has shields and twin blasters, for those emergency situations when a Jedi must fight. For Jedi fans who prefers using the force more than physical battle, get an overview of what the Jedi Consular class has in store for you.
