I'm talking about this:
I know it's been talked to death, but for me, the lightsaber issue will never be settled. A class that can only use the ancient weapon of the Jedi as a stat stick is an affront to Star Wars.
Whomever came up with the idea should have been chided out of the room, yet here we are.
Not only is there no spec giving you even a single scaling saber attack, it isn't even used in any casting animations. Not even Tumult
, which would have been the perfect opportunity for a saber attack. Instead we're expected to believe the sage is too frail to swing a saber, but he can do a spinning ninja kick. It's like they went out of their way to spit in the franchise's face.
