Star Wars The Old Republic Jedi Consular Class is one of the oldest Star War Old Republic classes around. They are highly respected all over the galaxy. Even the Sith Empire respects them to some degree as they have stolen Consular’s over to the Dark Side. Here is a brief history of how Star Wars The Old Republic Jedi Consular Class came to being and what they stand for.
The Jedi Order has been around for 20,000 years. Consulars use wisdom in diplomacy and strength in combat by using the power of the Force. This brings balance and peace to the Galactic Republic. They are always constantly learning about themselves, learning vast knowledge of the galaxy, and the effects of the Force that puts it altogether.
Star Wars The Old Republic Jedi Consular Class cannot get rid of the enemies or the darkness until they do the same within themselves. Everyone has a dark side and they must never give into weakness or temptation. When giving orders, they must always check themselves for the right reasons and motives. Meaning they are not doing this for personal gain but only for the Galaxy.
Consulars mediate and train years on end to keep their minds sharp and channeling the power of the Force. They may discover secrets that were forgotten with the Jedi, or they may have to raise armies to beat back the darkness. They have to stay evenly balanced and in harmony within themselves at all times. They are sought after for guidance and advice from the Governors and Senators.
When times where more at peace, the Consulars protected the Jedi lore as keepers or were an ambassador in service to the Republic. But, as times got darker, Consulars heeded the call for help to face it and bring it down on the front lines of historic battles.
In combat, it goes way beyond mediation and meditation. They are very fluent and efficient in battle. They use light sabers along with the power of the Force and can destroy legions of droids and disable battles before they even begin.
If you’re looking for more than preliminary info, this SWTOR Jedi Consular Guide is recommended. The manual is also available as part of a SWTOR Complete Guides Bundle; further recommended for serious SWTOR gamers.

Star Wars The Old Republic takes place thousands of years before the Star Wars saga. During this time, the number of Jedi was much greater than the number displayed at the time during the rise of Emperor Palpatine. The Jedi and Sith were in constant battle over the fate of the galaxy. Star Wars The Old Republic weapons will see a familiar application with slight modifications in the new MMORPG.
According to the Star Wars The Old Republic guide, weapons such as lightsabers were a commonality during this era. In comparison to the Star Wars original trilogy, the Jedi were reclusive and unable to demonstrate their lightsaber wielding powers in public without drawing the attention of the Empire, specifically Darth Vader. During this time the Jedi were hunted down and destroyed by the Empire. The Old Republic era had different forms of technology available to construct a lightsaber weapon. Lightsaber crystals were in abundance and were used to construct various glows for each lightsaber. The uniqueness of each crystal extended from color to additional attributes. For instance, some crystals would bestow upon the user an additional bonus to strength or Jedi power gauge. The traditional lightsabers were available as well as the dual wielding lightsaber and double-edged lightsaber. In the Star Wars The Old Republic MMORPG Sith Inquisitors, Sith Warriors, and Jedi Consular utilize a version of this weapon.
Lightsabers however are not portrayed as the “ultimate weapon” during the Old Republic. To quote Han Solo, “…ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster by your side.” Star Wars the Old Republic weapons such blasters, rifles and grenades are used to killenemies including the Jedi. Grenades vary in utilization and can be used to stun, poison, or explode upon impact. This allows a particular class to get the jump on an unsuspecting opponent. The way by which confrontation is encountered will vary depending upon each class. For instance, a Smuggler may utilize a grenade by sneaking upon a enemy whereas an Imperial Trooper may march into battle and hurl a grenade to dispatch a foe. Smugglers are capable of duel wielding a pistol for a deadly barrage. Imperial Troopers are able to use rifles and much large guns to blow their opponents out of the water.
