Jedi players... Knight or Consular?
To all you would-be Jedi out there, now that there are two Jedi classes will you select the Jedi Knight or the Jedi Consular?

I did not expect there to be two Jedi classes and pretty much since the beginning when they have said 'Jedi' I assumed there would only be one class, so when they announced the Jedi Knight I thought that was it and that was what I'd go with. Now I am not completely sure, but I imagine I'll stick with the Knight over the Consular (even though I played Consular the most in KotOR). I am liking the art style of the Consular though from those magazine scans. I'm looking forward to hearing how their stories will be different.

P.S. somebody should make this thread for the Sith classes. :p

I'm sitting on the fence here. I think I'd lean more towards Knight, but right now the Consular is so sketchy I'm not sure. I mean I remember KOTOR and being a Consular meant that I was severely handicapped on the final boss and was reduced to hack and slash anyways. So I've already got a bad taste in my mouth from the class name.

I guess this is their form of a D&D priest...which I'm not too thrilled about. Every good group will need one, but right now I'm not convinced. Mainly because I'm not so sure how these skills don't overlap with the Knight class already in the game who we've seen force pushing and such already.

Kinda weird though.
All the classes so far are named fairly simply with stuff like Warrior, Trooper, Bounty Hunter, Smuggler. All basic. Then words like Consular and Inquisitor get dropped and they make me question just what I'm doing.

I'll probably play both.


Because I can.

Well, you probably wont catch me playing as a Jedi class, but I'd like to answer this question any way assuming that I would play as a Jedi. And my definite answer is Knight. I've found now that I much more prefer a class focused on melee attacks, and strength. Not on studying the mysteries of the force. :dozey:

Darca Lar 12-09-2009 04:05 PM

I may be a Jedi, and if I do I'll be a Knight. I'm not the consular type.

Jedi will probably be the 2nd class I play, after Sith Inquisitor. I'll probably go with a Consular, given the hints we've been dropped so far. The Consular has some interesting Aurebesh on the Holonet page. I'm all about story.

If I ended up being a Jedi...I think I'd choose consular. Pretty cool to see that class in the game at all...

True_Avery 04-17-2010 04:12 AM

I play 1 of 2 classes in all games I play:

The run and gun, in your face lyrical sword smith

or a glass cannon.

So, my two classes will most likely be Knight/Trooper, and/or Sith/Bounty Hunter.

I've been playing healing and supporting classes since the beginning of World of Warcraft.

I thought I'd like to play Consular in keeping with that tradition, but at this point, I want something different. I want to deal damage to the Sith, and lots of it.

I'm hoping there will be a wide variety of lightsaber techniques that are each useful in different situations, making a tactically rich class to play.

If not, I'll be happy playing any of the other classes, really.

Prime 05-04-2010 01:24 PM

Probably Knight for me. Lightsaber is the priority.

Pho3nix 05-04-2010 04:48 PM


Mav 05-04-2010 10:44 PM

I'd be a Knisular!

Prime 05-10-2010 11:45 AM

You should get that checked.

Feagildin 05-18-2010 10:46 PM

Consular. I wanna sit around the temple on Tython and level up to cap just by completing quests via out of body experiences! Ok, so maybe that last bit isn't true, but I wouldn't mind at the same time. lol

TheRogueForums 06-09-2010 08:29 AM

Consular for me, so far. They seem to be more in tune with the living Force.

Prime 06-09-2010 08:32 AM

You'll never make onto the Council with that attitude. :)

Rasmu_Clbos 06-28-2010 04:02 PM

Jedi Knight for me by default, but I'd lean toward the more force oriented advance branch of the Jedi Knight if there is one. What I do in my KOTOR 2 playthroughs is usually go Guardian for the basic DD feats then do Jedi Master prestige class. What I end up with is what I believe is a nice mix of the best of both worlds.

dswtor 07-24-2010 03:04 PM

i think the consular is going to be the most popular class in the game. look at any poll.

Zhasios 09-01-2011 12:43 PM

I'm going to be playing a Knight. If I choose the Jedi class.

Jae Onasi 09-04-2011 10:50 AM

I'm going to give Consular-Sage a try at launch. You can never have too many healer types.

MajikMyst 09-12-2011 06:30 AM

Boy.. GE is going to have to make a lot more water heaters for all the consulars.. I sure hope whom ever goes around and buries them in the ground isn't busy for the next few years..

Jedi Knight for me.. Sentinal.. No water heaters required.. :thmbup1:

Qui-Don Jorn 09-15-2011 09:54 PM

Consular for my name was intended to imply..advanced class I dunno.
I like to sit back and heal/buff..use force powers..then, anything gets close I smash them with my green double-bladed.
You'll eventually see me around as Qui-Don Jorn. At some point Im pretty sure.

Ascended_Mike 10-23-2011 11:54 AM

Consular/Inquisitor because most people will be playing the saber swinging class of these two.
Will Consular bring unique buffs to the party?

...I know nothing.

mattig89ch 11-29-2011 01:25 PM

I was playing a knight in the beta, but I was going to go back and create a councelor. wanted to throw those flesh raiders around like ragdolls

Lynk Former 11-29-2011 06:44 PM

When I do get around to playing the Jedi characters, I'll probably play Knight first since I'm going dark side with him and light side with my consular.

mattig89ch 11-29-2011 07:02 PM

that'll be interesting. are you going to start out ls and go ds? or are you starting out ds?

Lynk Former 11-29-2011 11:47 PM

I'll just be choosing the dark side options all the way through and being as much of an ass with the Jedi as I can be lol.

Scorge 12-05-2011 07:45 AM

Jedi Knight, single saber better for me. :D

the_raven 05-27-2013 09:45 AM

I chose Knight - Sentinel (hate having to carry two lightsabers though) and Consular - Shadow

Darth Avlectus 08-25-2013 12:26 AM

I'm playing consular just to get it out of the way and supposedly it had the most "meh" story. TBH, I'm just glad to be playing anything at all by this point and it doesn't seem so bad--voice acting is definitely lopsided in favor of light side. As a shadow.

Piggybacking roomie's acct.

Currently at lv 16 on coruscant. Bergeren Colony server.

Haven't given much thought to Jedi Knight. I'm definitely a fiend for attacking and love two saber style, so I'll probably go sentinel. Honestly, though, I do see some benefit to tanking so I'd make an additional JK Guardian.

As a Consular>Shadow, I want to try to make her as curt as possible without being arrogant sounding. The dark sided options...just stick out too much by their voiced sound.
