Sith Inquisitor and Jedi Consular Class Changes in SWTOR KOTET

Here are the Class Changes in KOTET for the Inquisitor / Consular 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 Sith Inquisitor and Jedi Consular. This is just a sampling of the changes that are coming with Eternal Throne and are subject to change. Sith Inquisitor Sorcerer Coming from Knights of the Fallen Empire, we felt the that the Sorcerer was in a really good place and so they aren’t receiving a whole lot of changes this Update. One big change that we made with Fallen Empire was to work on increasing the overall mobility and survivability of the Sorcerer. Additionally, we really wanted to separate the Sorcerer as a ranged class from that of the Assassin. To accomplish that goal, we are making the following…

Class Changes for Inquisitors and Consulars

  Here are the final installment of our series on Class changes coming in Game Update 4.0! With 4.0, BioWare wanted to give Assassins and Shadows a better way to stealthily approach or return to their enemy target, and their new ability was specifically designed to do just that. For Sorcerers and Sages, BioWare wanted to give them an additional way to escape peril, so we made Phase Walk available to them. All of the following notes are subject to change: Game Update 4.0 Class Changes: Jedi Consular + Sith Inquisitor Welcome to the final installment of our series on Class changes coming in Game Update 4.0!

SWTOR Sith Inquisitor Class Story Summary

BioWare posted a Developer Blog named “Ascension To Power” What you are about to read is an excerpt from the official Star Wars: The Old Republic Encyclopedia. It will describe an overview of all 3 Acts of the Sith Inquisitor Class story. Although we try to avoid them wherever possible, this excerpt will contain spoilers. Please read at your own risk… Prologue Ravaged by the Great War, the Sith Order allows Force-sensitive slaves into its ranks. Most slaves are too weak to complete the trials. But one slave displays incredible cunning and a fearsome talent for the dark side. Begrudgingly instructed by Overseer Harkun, the slave acolyte conquers the trials, dominates a Dashade assassin named Khem Val into servitude, and overwhelms the other students, including a Sith pureblood groomed for success. Despite Overseer Harkun’s attempts to sabotage the slave and preserve the pure Sith legacy, the acolyte triumphs to become…

Update on 3.3 PTS Sorc/Sage Healing Changes

  Due to player feedback, the SWTOR Combat Team has a few changes comming up for Sorcerer and Sage on the public test servers. Check it out below: Update on 3.3 PTS Sorc/Sage Healing Changes | 06.08.2015, 10:48 PM Hey everyone, Thank you all for the continued feedback over the weekend. We wanted to take a moment to give you all a preview of Sorcerer/Sage changes that we have planned for the next PTS patch based on your feedback. Below are our intended changes. Sith Inquisitor Sorcerer Consuming Darkness now activates instantly, restoring 50 Force (up from 30). The healing component has been removed. The original design of the ability was never intended to provide significant healing, and by removing the healing component entirely, we are able to restore a greater amount of Force (which helps us address concerns over low Force return). We also hope that removing the healing component from…

Euan Morton (male Inquisitor) Narrates STAR WARS Tarkin

Now here is a voice that might sound a bit familiar to you. The audio book STAR WARS Tarkin is narrated by Euan Morton, the same guy who make the voice for male Inquisitor in SWTOR. How cool is that little nerd fact? Here’s a little sound bite for you: Now Tarkin is written by James Luceno, who is a champion of the Dark Heroes in the Expanded Universe and has a number of stories out including Dark Lord: The Rise of Darth Vader  and  Darth Plague. Tarkin is a great character and one interesting thing about the story is that the Force is not a part of it at all. While the Dark vs. Light theme is prevalent in Star Wars, it’s also nice to see interesting, compelling stories that don’t overplay these concepts. Tarkin is a story that you’ll likely find yourself getting lost in and it makes sense now why Morton was…

Inquisitor/Consular SWTOR 3.0 Changes – Livestream Notes

What changes will we see to Inquisitor/Consular with Game Update 3.0? Well, now we have some information to help us answer this question. Most of the livestream went over utilities and disciplines and Dulfy has a great breakdown of the whole thing for us. You can see SWTOR Disciplines Calculator built by swtor_miner. This calculator currently only displays Classes and Disciplines that have been shown on Official Livestreams. See it here.   Utilities Overload now heals a max of 8 targets. It is a smart heal (picks the lowest HP % targets to heal). There is a trait now to allow Cloud Mind to increase your damage reduction by 25% for 6 seconds. Bubble stun is now an utility and available to all sorcs. Lighting Barrier – increases your Force Barrier amount by 10% only (down from 20%). Corruption Roaming Mend is the new Corruption ability and grant 3% internal and elemental damage…

Assassin / Shadow Top 3 Answers

  Here are the top 3 Assassin / Shadow Answers: Madness in PvP The Madness Assassin has been grossly revamped from its original state pre-xpac, which in turn has caused many players to become repulsed by its current playstyle. Due to the changes, Madness also suffered a dramatic hit in PvP, losing access to its Insta-Whirlwind utility and the loss of Maul procs which also goes to hurt its burst potential. In addition, the spec suffers from being far too easy to kill (having no true stealth benefits) with no real execution power to actually down targets beyond fluff damage, therefore making it seemingly a useless fighter on the field in comparison to what other classes / specs can do. With no team utility, lack of kill power and absurdly low survivability, what exactly is the purpose of a Madness Assassin on the battlefield? Are there any plans to alter…
