Marauder does not need double-bladed lightsaber because they already have dual weild and do lots of damage, I dont know why some of you are complaining about having dual weild lightsabers.

Cool, so you guys already own us Assassins in melee combat anyway, and now you want to take our weapon?

I'd trade my Assassins double-bladed thing to two proper light sabers any time.

Except that I couldn't even if they gave us that option since I deleted my level 50 Assassin after deciding that I simply can't take the derp animation. It looked like I was running around sweeping the floor with a lightsaber broomstick.

I would also like to have a pistol chucked down in my pants like a real gangsta.

If you brought a vibrosword with unclassified military heavy armor into PVP, would they be able to tell your a Jedi?

I remember once seeing a Sith Juggernaut in level 40 Bounty Hunter PVP gear, and wielding one of the buster-sword Vibroblades from the Taris Commendation vendor.

Aside from making me giggle and looking like a fruit loop, it was interesting to watch enemy players use Bounty Hunter-kill techniques, only to realize too late they were fighting a Juggernaut.

Great idea, you're hired.

It might take an extra second, but yea they should. Troopers/BH can't use melee weapons and Operatives can't use heavy armor (not to mention they can't have their knife visible save during combat animations).

Upon addition of a new need/greed system, the classes can be set up for a balance by weapon choice.

When people are finally able to be "assigned" gear by the system (so that they can be only needed by those who can use it) the association of new weapons by certain classes will be better taken-in by the players. You can't simply try to integrate a new change to the gameplay of the game without spelling it out for an MMORPG audience.

In short, we, as a collective player base, are slow and need things spoon-fed to us.
