An idea for pebble storm change!

Lets use the saber for this....what if:

The sage can make their light saber hover in front of them upright, and uses the force to create an energy beam fire at their target which is derived from the blade of the saber?

Or same thing but instead of the saber hovering in front, one hand holds the saber and the other directs the energy through it towards the target.

Also the color of the energy beam could depend on the color crystal of the saber.

When I think of telekinetic throw, I think of a move similar to what Satele Shan showed during her fight with Malgus in the hope video when she blew him the hell through that huge rock. When I saw that video it made me want to be a consular. I was hoping for some really cool light saber animations and acrobatic moves and cool force abilities. However when I saw what we actually got i was very sad.

Satele is not really a Shadow or a Sage. She is just Satele. Characters of cinematics or every "heroic and important" character tend to not be from the same mold that players come from.

She fights more like what you would expect from a shadow, using a lot of acrobatic moves, saber strikes and such. I think this is what a lot of people were hoping for, me included. My inq moves look like what I would expect. Tons of lighting and dark energy. I would have loved to see some of what Satele did used as character moves and powers. I would have made that my main in a heart beat. Every one wants too look bad *** and epic, even as a humble Jedi.

This post reminded me of how the movies dipict sith and such as complete bas asses and the jedi for the most part all wear the same basic jedi outfit, anyway thats not the point, Force lightning looks way WAY better than the pebble storm ability, on that note these pebbles seem to come out of no where, not even the ground... whats with that :S
they need to change the animation, thats the basic point of most of the posts

Another thing I've noticed is the pebbles is that they not only come out of nowhere but sometimes they show up being cast several feet to the left of my character and sometimes they show coming from above the head.

As i have said in another post yes the animation for pebbles is boring and kinda cheap. I think a project storm or a disturbance storm would be interesting. I think you could also possibly use the environment around you to throw things at people like bigger rocks, metal panels if your on a ship, or perhaps if there is somehow nothing in the area your character starts using energy/force?

How about an animation where in addition to the pebbles, they encircle the enemy like a storm?
