Hmz...just a thought (assuming there will be at least 3 talent trees)

Tank: Jedi, Republic Commando, *Sith class* , Sith (since troopers are know to use blades in close-combat, with the right talents they could be tanks).
DPS: Jedi, Smuggler, Sith, Bounty Hunter again, with the right specs.
Healing: Republic Commando (medic tree), Jedi, Sith, *Sith class*
Ranged: Republic Trooper, Smuggler, Bounty Hunter, *Sith class*
AoE: Republic Trooper, Smuggler, Bounty Hunter, *Sith class*

I think this looks pretty balanced.
If I look at the gaps...a Tank, healer, ranged, aoe....I think it could very well be a Hunter-Killer droid.
We know there are medic droids, medic could be a talent tree. Their strong armor could be used for tanking (which would mean it could be a melee droid as well). And AoE and Ranged speaks for itself.

And even if you take out the healing, that could be done by a Bounty Hunter (thinking of illegal stims and such here) it could be possible.

The Bounty Hunter wears heavy armor and on the website it is across from the Trooper. I think it's a safe bet that Trooper and Bounty hunter are counterparts.

Trooper - Bounty Hunter

And we know there's a Smuggler and some sort of sneaky Sith class (from videos and screenshots).

Smuggler - Sneaky Sith (Pirate, Spy, whatever)

The Jedi and Sith are obviously in the game and are counterparts

Jedi - Sith

The last pairing is where we have the conundrum. I'll agree that making droid as a class is limiting. Many would not want to play a droid, which would eliminate 25% of their choices. It's better to make the droid a race.

I don't think we'll see a medic class. The most recent Star Wars RPG (Saga Edition) has 5 classes: Jedi, Noble, Scoundrel, Scout and Soldier. No "healer" class, but everyone has a heroic surge mechanic to heal themselves and get back in the fight. Each class could have some kind of health recovery/damage mitigation mechanic. In addition, we know that we'll be fighting multiple weaker enemies instead of single enemies with tons of HP, so healing might not be as necessary as it has been in other MMOs.

Let's look at another source for inspiration, D&D. In D&D there are 4 roles: Defender, Striker, Controller, and Leader.

Defenders are the meleers who can soak up damage. Let's say this role is Jedi/Sith.
Strikers are single-target damage dealers. Lets say this role is Smuggler/Pirate.
Controllers are AOE damage dealers and condition givers. Let's say this role is Trooper/Bounty Hunter.

That leaves Leader as the 4th role and I think it's safe to say that this role isn't filled by any of the classes introduced so far. Perhaps an officer class is in order for both sides, to give buffs to others and perhaps get more out of companions.

Trooper - Bounty Hunter
Smuggler - Sneaky Sith (Pirate, Spy, whatever)
Jedi - Sith
Officer? - Officer?

Thing is, Jedi/Sith fit all the four roles depending on their class and Force powers. I guess the 4th class must be a really versatile one, since there's the Feat focused class (Trooper/BH), the Skill focused (Smuggler/Sneaky one) and the Force focused (Jedi/Sith).

Being a droid might be limiting - still, playing as HK-47 would be badass.

My guess is that you'll be able to be a droid as a RACIAL choice rather than a class choice. Of course, droids can't be Jedi....OR CAN THEY? ::drool::

I'm curious if they'll allow Wookie or Ewok Jedi....
Also, will the Sith (the class, not the faction) all be human?

Sith will be multi-race, as I assume all classes will be.


Also, Lucas put an end to ANY more wookiee jedi. The force unleashed devs wanted to make the main boss a jedi wookiee and lucas fired up apparently.


But yeah, no more wookiee jedi in EU or games. Ever.

Ooooo I just thought of something... 4th class. Republic: Technician, Sith: Beast Tamer(or Slaver...).
I don't think we'll have droids as playable classes, rather NPCs instead.

Yea even though there will only be 4classes per side... there will be endless routes to follow.

And I am sure there will be an expansion of classes sooner or later

It may just be a hunch, but my thinking is that there wont be a healer class. Anyone else remember the medpac's from K1?

That was a bioware invention, what makes you think they wont do it again?

In one of the interviews I posted they mentioned something about many classes (maybe all) being able to heal in some unique, fun and epic way. Whether that means they'll all be able to use medpacks on themselves/others or have healing abilities (that may or may not be a medpack spell), we have yet to know.

sith
bouty hunter (all range)
assasin/spy (has decent range better melee)
(wrong answer here)

jedi
smuggler
commando
politician/ like leia

i also think crafting is not goign to be a single class thing but maybe a tree thing where u can invest in it. interested to see how healing is going to... either conventional doctor class or if players can have like secondary healing powers

My guesses following a WoW model(Class + 3 proficiency trees to choose from):

Republic-
Jedi
1. Saber Skills (Finesse DPS)
2. Force Skills (Offensive Force Skills?)
3. Protection (Buffs/Influence/Maybe Heals)
Trooper
1. Heavy Weapons (High DPS)
2. Protection (High damage mitigation)
3. Tactics (Squad tactics and group buffs)
Smuggler
1. Pistoleer (high DPS)
2. Subtlety (Stealth + Survival skills)
3. Luck
Combat Medic
1. Heals
2. Buffs
3. Hybrid

Empire -
Sith Warrior
1. Saber Skills (High DPS)
2. Attacking Force Powers (AoE DPS - Lightning anyone?)
3. Controlling Force Powers (attacks that strike fear, debuffs)
Bounty Hunter
1. Conventional Warfare (Blasters)
2. Unconventional Warfare (Short Range AOE - Flamethrower/Explosives)
3. Hunter (Stealth + DeBuffs)?
Spy/Assassin
1. Assassinate (Poisons + DPS)
2. Combat (High DPS)
3. Subtlety (Stealth + Survival + DPS)
Combat Medic
1. Heals
2. Poisons
3. Hybrid
