Here are the Class Changes in KOTET for the Agent / Smuggler Classes:

Along with the 5 new levels coming in Eternal Throne, each of the Classes are receiving changes including new abilities, new utilities, and more. For this post, let’s talk about the Imperial Agent and Smuggler. This is just a sampling of the changes that are coming with Eternal Throne and are subject to change.

Imperial Agent
Operative
Operatives will notice that some cunning new tricks have been added to their repertoire with Knights of the Eternal Throne. When used under the right circumstances, these new skills and abilities can certainly give the Operative a tactical advantage and make them a dangerous opponent on the battlefield. Here are some of those changes:

  • Toxic Haze: New ability for all Operatives. Execute your Tactical Advantage to drop a canister at your feet which will do persistent AoE damage for 6 seconds. The Medicine Discipline will be able to use this ability from up to 30 meters away.
  • Take Cover, Crouch, Snipe: These abilities have been removed from the base class and are now Sniper exclusive.

Each Advanced Class is receiving a new suite of Legendary Utilities, here are some of the Operative’s:

  • Mobile Strategies: Exfiltrate grants a charge of Mobile Strategies, reducing the energy cost of your next Overload Shot by 100%, allowing it to be used at 30m, and making it knock the target back. Each use of Overload Shot consumes a charge of Mobile Strategies and grants 10 energy.
  • Curative Agent: Countermeasures heals you for 1% of your maximum health every second for 10 seconds and grants Curative Agent, causing your next Kolto Probe to immediately grant two stacks of Kolto Probe. In addition, Kolto Infusion heals for more initially, but no longer has a heal over time component.
  • Blow for Blow: Evasion grants Blow for Blow, reflecting 150% of single target tech and Force damage back at the attacker while Evasion is active. The damage is taken and reflected, but not absorbed.

Sniper
In Knights of the Eternal Throne, the Sniper will see several changes that reinforce its position as The Old Republic’s quintessential ranged damage dealer. With a slightly longer-range stun, and utilities that improve their chase and retreat capabilities, the Sniper is poised to handle more combat situations than ever before. Here are some of those changes:

  • Maim: New ability which replaces Debilitate. Allows you to stun a target from 10m away.
  • Shiv and Overload Shot: Removed from the base class, they are now Operative exclusive.

Each Advanced Class is receiving a new suite of Legendary Utilities, here are some of the Sniper’s:

  • Controlled Chaos: Diversion grants a charge of Controlled Chaos for every target initially affected beyond the first. Each charge increases armor penetration by 10%. This effect lasts for 8 seconds.
  • Defensive Safeguards: When Ballistic Shield is activated you gain a charge of Defensive Safeguards for each enemy inside your Ballistic Shield, up to 4. This effect lasts 20 seconds and each charge increases your damage reduction by 5%. In addition, while inside your Ballistic Shield, you heal for 3% of your maximum health every second and you are immune to being pulled or knocked back.
  • Executioner: Flash Bang and Maim grant Executioner, allowing your next Takedown within 10 seconds to be used regardless of the target's remaining health and deal 15% additional damage.
  • Tactical Retreat: Covered Escape heals you for 10% of your maximum health. Additionally, the duration of Evasion is increased by 2 seconds.

Smuggler
Scoundrel
Scoundrels will notice that some cunning new tricks have been added to their repertoire with Knights of the Eternal Throne. When used under the right circumstances, these new skills and abilities can certainly give the Scoundrel an upper hand and make them a dangerous opponent on the battlefield. Here are some of those changes:

  • Bushwhack: New ability for all Scoundrels. Execute your Upper Hand to drop spinning blades at your feet which will do persistent AoE damage for 6 seconds. The Sawbones Discipline will be able to use this ability from up to 30 meters away.
  • Take Cover, Crouch, Charged Burst: These abilities have been removed from the base class and are now Gunslinger exclusive.

Each Advanced Class is receiving a new suite of Legendary Utilities, here are some of the Scoundrel’s:

  • Slippery Shooter: Scamper grants a charge of Slippery Shooter, reducing the energy cost of your next Quick Shot by 100%, allowing it to be used at 30m, and making it knock the target back. Each use of Quick Shot consumes a charge of Slippery Shooter and grants 10 energy.
  • Sly Surrender: Surrender grants Sly Surrender, causing your next Slow-release Medpac to immediately grant two stacks. Additionally, Surrender heals you for 1% of your maximum health every second for 10 seconds and Kolto Pack now heals for more health instantly, but no longer heals the target over time.
  • Back At Ya: Dodge grants Back At Ya, reflecting 150% single target tech or Force damage while Dodge is active. The damage is taken and reflected, but not absorbed.

Gunslinger
In Knights of the Eternal Throne, the Gunslinger will see several changes that reinforce its position as The Old Republic’s quintessential ranged damage dealer. With a slightly longer-range stun, and utilities that improve their chase and retreat capabilities, the Gunslinger is poised to handle more combat situations than ever before. Here are some of those changes:

  • Below the Belt: New ability which replaces Dirty Kick. Allows you to stun a target from 10m away.
  • Blaster Whip and Quick Shot: Removed from the base class, they are now Scoundrel exclusive.

Each Advanced Class is receiving a new suite of Legendary Utilities, here are some of the Gunslinger’s:

  • Opportunity Knocks: For every target initially affected beyond the first, Diversion grants a charge of Opportunity Knocks, increasing armor penetration by 10% per charge. This effect lasts 8 seconds.
  • Shield Reserve: When Scrambling Field is activated you gain a charge of Shield Reserve for each enemy inside your Scrambling Field, up to 4. This effect lasts 20 seconds and each charge increases your damage reduction by 5%. In addition, while inside your Scrambling Field, you heal for 3% of your maximum health every second and you are immune to being pulled or knocked back.
  • Guile and Guns: Flash Grenade and Below the Belt grant Guile and Guns, allowing your next Quickdraw within 10 seconds to be used regardless of the target's remaining health and deal 15% additional damage.
  • Bait and Switch: Hightail It heals you for 10% of your maximum health. Additionally, the duration of Dodge is increased by 2 seconds.
