The lights are on
For all the serene talk of being in tune with The Force, the Jedi Consular class also knows how to kick Sith butt.
Electronic Arts and developer BioWare have released this short trailer showing the Jedi Consular class in action. The class itself holds two paths for players: Choose to be a Shadow – kind of the strong, silent type of justice-delivering Jedi, or the Sage, which embraces more of a party support role.
There is no official release date yet for Star Wars: The Old Republic, but you can find out how to play the game early here.

I've looked at some of the classes and sub-classes, and I would definitely choose the Jedi Shadow class. From what I've seen here, the Sage looks pretty awesome too.
Why won't this game just release?! Im dieing from bloody wait over 'ere!
Looks like a solid class, a healer that has decent melee and force skills.
Why not do one article with all the Class Vid's? I feel like there's maybe a bias here (considering all the others are already out)
Also Gunslinger > Consular
*looks closely at the screenshot* I don't think your wrist is supposed to bend that far guy.
But yea, let me guess - this is tOR's Paladin class? I said it before, if this turns out to be more than "just another RPG" *motions removing hat and taking a bite*
I think that people need to stop sayon that "Oh, Jedi Consular, Guardians, troopers and smuggelers suck." We realize that you are a Sith Battle-Warrior-1hit KO kinda guy. Us other people who actually LIKE the light side use diplomatic skills. So while you are hacking away at 30 people you pissed off, we are walking through their ranks.(Javing used Force Persuasion) It is just a matter of preference. I'm sure all classes are balanced in their own way. Yes, the gunslinger might be better than a consular at the beginning, but the gunslinger might have a slower progression system, or vice versa. Oh, and all of those people who just post to say, "This game sucks/is lame/is stupid",please give some LEGITIMATE reasons why.
can hardly wait till the game is actually released
I'll stick to my Smuggler.
I've already established that I'm playing Empire side, doesn't stop me from being impressed with the Consular.
I appreciate how this game is giving each class multiple options; I would have expected the Smuggler to be the rogue/assassin type guy, and not the Consular, who I expected to be a purely support class of sorts. I don't think I'll have nearly as many alts in this game as in WoW, especially considering how much deeper the story will be.
Awesome. Hope this comes out for Mac eventually.
