Dark Jedi Shadow with red saber possible?

Hello guys

Im looking forward to this as much as the rest of you and my cusin is pursuading me to join the light side. This is a bit hard as ive allways favoured the dark side and had plans to become a sith inquisitor assassin with the red saber as ive allways loved

However his new argument is that i can join the republic but go the dark side jedi way. This is appealing to me but only if i can get my red saber.

So my question is, will a republic jedi be able to use a lightsaber with a red color crystal?

Thanks in advance!

From my experience in the weekend beta stress test, this is possible... once I attained a rank 1 on the light side of my moral choices, I lost the ability to use a saber with a red crystal in it (which I specifically bought modified cause I liked the idea of being a red saber user on the side of the good guys.)

yes. but you'll first have to earn enough dark side points in your early leveling. red lightsaber color crystals are restricted to anybody with a certain amount of light side points. playing a dark jedi shadow will give you a double bladed saber which you can make red (ala darth maul) probably around level 10 or 11. just keep in mind though, that you'll still have the "light-er side" force powers like telekinetic throw, and not use of any lightening attacks.

light Jedi can't use red sabers at all, so yes of course you can use it as a dark Jedi. if not you than who could?

can you make sword in box light sword so sword come out when opened? then if sword is back after sword, use light saber on box, and saber will be boxed after sword is out.

You can also use it if netural so you don't have to wait till you hit dark one to get a red colour crystal, just make sure you dont hit light 1 .

Yes, easily. Just get to Dark I and buy a red crystal on the market, or get one from crafting, or take one out of a blaster with red crystal in it.

What are the disadvantages to going Dark 1? What does the class lose?

This is exactly right. You just need to make enough dark side choices (or, rather, avoid making too many light side ones) to keep yourself under Light 1.

To answer the poster immediately above this, the only thing you lose by going dark is the ability to use blue and green crystals, which sitting at dark 1 or deeper will prevent you from equipping.

Spoiler alert!

also when it comes to the ranks you can earn. if you go LS you gain Master. DS you gain General. or so i have heard

Not only this ^.

But you can get a great (red I think it was) double bladed lightsabre from the first flaskpoint you do, The Esseless if you have some luck with you and it drops.

Still have to have the darkside points though cause of the restriction.
