And how do saboteurs fit in your idea?

Good idea. I wouldn't mind new areas on old planets with story that takes us there.

Our character would be given the choice to support a candidate and then work with them to get that Darth to become Emperor or Empress of the Sith. As long as it won't be our character who will try to ascend to the Imperial throne, I'd be fine with it. Think of it, how much more powerful the person behind the throne, whispering into the ear of the Emperor or Empress would be.
I would quite like that too.

I would also love class stories, but I'm satisfied with faction stories with some class flavour. At the very least having Force user PCs use the Force and non Force users use tech. And having our Force user chars actually act powerful. (Unlike many times in KotFE/KotET where our char just stands like a noob while companions do impressive stuff). I think Onslaught has so far from what I've seen improved on this, even incorporating our class history.

Other than that I'd like bug fixes and just improvements to the game features and stability.

1) Separate questlines for both Imperial and Republic arcs, with perhaps 2-3 class specific quests in there as well. At the very least, give us story arcs for force users and tech users. Don't shoehorn my smuggler into a story about how he's instrumental in rebuilding the Jedi Order, and don't make my Bounty Hunter some pre-ordained "Chosen One" of the Force... again.

2) An option for characters who have been saboteur through the more recent arcs to formally defect (new characters would have to play through JUS and Onslaught as saboteur before gaining the option. Characters who played through JUS and Onslaught as loyalists would not be able to defect).

3) Return some of the companion abilities that used to make them feel unique. Nadia's heavy AOE, HK-51's assassinate, etc.

4) A minimum of three operations over the course of the expansion. One at launch, one at the midway point, and one to close the expansion out.

5) A minimum of one new map for each PVP mode.

6) New flashpoints. Probably 5-6 of them.

7) Basically, just give us enough content to justify actually calling it an expansion. I'd even be willing to pay for it if there's actually enough content to justify buying it.
Dat referral link, tho
You get free stuff. I get free stuff. We all win.

Maybe it's asking too much, but definitely a new class.

I hope they get better financing for the next xpac to make it bigger.

I would definitely pay extra for it, rather than just a sub price.

I want them to keep elaborating on the current gearing system, I love the customizations and variety. I want them to focus more on gameplay than anything, more animations, different styles to hold your lightsaber, different ways to run, different ways to hold your pistol, etc. One thing that is important in a Star Wars roleplaying game is how how character looks, acts and feels. I want my assassins to run like Darth Maul in Battlefront, my Juggernaut to have slow and deamening movement like dath vader, my sorcerer to glide like a witch etc.

But ONLY if they add a base game storyline like for other classes.

You know whats funny is that they could have added a new class with KOTET launch, but they focused too mush resources on other things when they had that massive budget. Now i dont think we will ever see a new class unless EA gives them huge budget again.

Perhaps at some point the game will go through more of a revival and receive more funding, resources and manpower to make a return to 8 individual class stories.

As to what I'd like to see in future story content?

Since Onslaught was heavily focused on the front lines of the Third Galactic War, I would like to see the next story installment to be more inwardly focused.

For the Republic, I'd like to see an arc that involves the rebuilding of the Jedi Order, specifically the rebuilding of the Jedi Temple on Coruscant. It could heavily involve exploring the inner depths of the ruined temple, where, as a result of the attack, a lot of dangerous Sith artifacts were "let loose" and have started affecting scavengers and the like. Our characters would delve inside the ruins to try and contain the artifacts again, find ancient Jedi lore and secrets while also fighting possessed people. The arc could also cover a "cleansing" of the Jedi Temple, since I'd imagine there to be a lot of Dark Side energy around there with how the Sith have pulled a number on the place during the sacking of Coruscant.

For the Empire, I'd love to see a struggle for the Imperial throne. As much as I love Darth Vowrawn as Sith Emperor, I do have a feeling he and Acina are going to be killed, no matter our choice back on Iokath. If the story will indeed head that way, I'd want the next story update to focus the Empire's story on political intrigue, shadow conflicts and lots of backstabbing to put a new Dark Lord of the Sith on the Imperial throne. Our character would be given the choice to support a candidate and then work with them to get that Darth to become Emperor or Empress of the Sith. As long as it won't be our character who will try to ascend to the Imperial throne, I'd be fine with it. Think of it, how much more powerful the person behind the throne, whispering into the ear of the Emperor or Empress would be.

Both these stories would give the opportunity to return to the capital worlds of our factions and let us have a look at the hearts of the Empire and Republic once more.

In even further story updates, perhaps we could venture into the Tion Hegemony, as we haven't seen them featured since the Kaon Under Siege arc. I'd also love to see more of the Stygian Caldera, which harbour the Sith worlds like Dromund Kaas and Korriban, but also many others like Bosthirda, Jaguada and Ch'hodos. I think it would be nice to see more of the Sith worlds in the game, especially since we had a strongly Jedi-focused one with the Ossus story.
They can do that but then they would be ignoring the rest of the game. Its all about resource management at this point.

Also, I bet SWTOR will recieve more funding in the future. Lets just hope they dont repeat another KOTET and only focus on one aspect of the game instead of the whole game.
