PC Games Magazine Reveals Jedi Consular and Sith Inquisitor [UPDATE]
In the December issue of PC Games magazine in Germany, which features TOR on it’s cover, the remaining two classes have been revealed for the game: The Sith Inquisitor and the Jedi Consular. This may come as a surprise to many who were not expecting the final classes in the game to be Force-using classes. Details on the two classes are below.
A user on the SWTOR-Station forums has translated scans from the magazine, giving us some details of the classes.
“Class number 7 is the Jedi-Consular. Other than the a few weeks ago revealed Jedi-Knight the Consular is not found in the first frontline. Though he can handle the lightsaber, the Consular also masters a few different long-range combat abilities such as “Sleep”, “Lift” or “Smash”. The class can for once be played offensively on damage oriented or specialize in healing. Therewith the Jedi-Consular is a really powerful supporter-class in The Old Republic.
“The Sith Inquisitor is the last of the totally eight character-classes, that will be at the ready with the launch of SWTOR. The Inquisitor is the counterpart of the Consular and also a fighter in the second ow. Suited with force-abilities as “shock” or “lightning-stroke” he can fire his enemies up, as we were able to convince ourselves during a thorough gaming session.One quest sent us into an old Sith grave, with swarms of huge killer-worms (K’lor’slug Ravager) and deserted Imperials running around. With the aid of the area-of-effect skill “Overload”, that can not only damage nearby enemies, but also knock them down a stun for a few seconds, we quickly killed the brood.
We’ll be posting up more information as it becomes available so stay tuned to the site.
UPDATE: SWTOR forum member Petrosis has translated the entirety of the magazine article at the official forum. The magazine had a chance to play the Sith Inquisitor through a quest and wrote their detailed impressions. The above translation is only the brief overview given of both classes.
Update 2: Sean Dahlberg has officially confirmed the classes on the official forums.
