What is it about your main class that keeps you playing?

-Jedi Guardian, multiple factors. Combat system, lore, complicity. Having 40 regularly-used keybinds is refreshing.

What brought you to it in the first place?

-Again, several factors. In all MMOs that I've played, I've been a melee tank and I loved it. I'm also fond of Jedi philosophies and lore.

How has your experience with your main class compared to any other classes you may have tried?

-Hideously weak during levelling - at least till 30-40. On my Sniper and Sage I can take out more, tougher enemies in shorter amounts of time without resorting to borderline AI-exploits. Was very weak at top level till I geared him up. Now, aside a few non-critical things, I'd say he's quite on par with other classes of similar gear level.

What would you like to see fixed/changed/added to your class in the future?

-Talent trees look like they're 3 builds old. Defense tree needs a serious overhaul - half of the tree is dedicated to overcoming the horrendous Focus generation penalties of Soresu, the other half are mostly gimmicks. Focus needs to get rid of Singularity bomb dependency, Vigilance DoTs need to scale properly.

Several baseline archetype abilities don't scale half as well as they should - namely, Slash and Cyclonic Slash. I removed the former from my bars and I use the latter only because I have no better AoE threat when my Sweep is on cooldown.

Its a really fun class to play.... BLowing stuff up is fun. Looking like a robot is fun (level 40 pvp gear best example) I get a jawa though i would rather that be a race choice =( when a team mate is being ganged on by a few people my death from above makes them scatter or really hurts them.
What brought you to it in the first place?

Its not a force user. I tried a sorc at first but so has most people least on my server. I find the healing more complex and harder in pvp. I can shoot my allies=0

How has your experience with your main class compared to any other classes you may have tried?

Well, as i already stated i likeit much more than sorc. In fact its actually a good anti sorc class not the best one but still can take them out. the melee classes i find horrible in pvp. Sniper is fun too but the cover system just takes out the fun factor in pvp. Ive played a up o 20 on all classes and i find this one the best fitting all around for me. Far from the best class but funnest for me.

What would you like to see fixed/changed/added to your class in the future?

Changed? i want to be a Jawa or really with so many races anything non human would be fine. I dont get this what a horrible lazy oversight. Other than that really my biggest issues is the fact i have a jetpack and only one thing makes use of it (death from above). I dont see why it cant be used for a jump back or forward skill. WOuld be helpfull in pvp and just fun to have.

Jedi Sentinel

What is it about your main class that keeps you playing?

Even with the frustrating ability delay, I enjoy the Jedi Sentinel's combat. The play style requires quick button presses to chain together attacks. While PvP'ing, I feel like I'm a concert pianist, which isn't a complaint. Also, I enjoy all of my situational abilities. I have multiple short CD defensive abilities, several "Oh snap" abilities, and two "Oh no you didn'" long CD abilities.

When I play my Commando Alt, the gameplay is much slower. I have far fewer options for PvP. Grav round grav round grav round high impact bolt grav round etc is far less compelling than "Force Leap -> Overload Saber -> Zealous Strike -> Cauterize -> Slash -> Leg Slash -> Slash -> Zen -> Force Stasis -> Rebuke -> Dispatch"

What brought you to it in the first place?

I was a hybrid class in WoW and wanted to play a pure DPS class in SWTOR. Plus, who doesn't want two lightsabers?

How has your experience with your main class compared to any other classes you may have tried?

I find the trooper story line to be more interesting than the Jedi Knight's. I also found that the skill cap is MUCH higher for a Jedi Sentinel than a Commando.

What would you like to see fixed/changed/added to your class in the future?

The main thing holding Jedi Sentinel's back is the ability delay and animation stuttering. I'm hoping this will be completely resolved in patch 1.1.1, because patch 1.1b didn't do it.
