So the game has been out for roughly two months now, with all the whine and complaining on the forums, thought it was actually time to post something constructive. Despite the problems this games PvP system has, what classes do you find yourself enjoy playing? So far I have leveled a Vanguard and Sorc to 50, both of them rank 50 in valor and I have to say the Sorc bores the hell out of me.

The Vanguard itself matches my play style, being able to take a bit of damage and utilizing some of the hybrid builds out there, have a nasty set of tools and damage.

Wanted to see what you all enjoyed playing so far. Both Guardians/Juggernauts and Marauders/Sentinels seem fun to play despite the kiting issues. On the other hand, Gunnery/arsenal seems probably one of the most boring play styles I've seen.

So you have a sorc and marauder for pvp and are looking for a new class? Lolwut? Marauder is not hard. I click and walk backwards. And I'm like a buzzsaw of death. With a healer I go from scary to nightmare.

After finally playing sorc I wonder why no nerfs. They stack too well. 5 of them in wz is ezmode.

Ok you said vanguard not marauder. I have a mirror in powertech. Hes seriously op too.

Tldr. You picked all top Dps classes and still trolling for Dps?

Never said anything about dps, said what people enjoyed playing, that is all.

I've got a scoundrel, sorc, and sentinel


Hate playing the sorc, pvp doesn't even feel like pvp, hardly anything seems reactive, no prediction necessary. In warzones I feel like i'm just going through my rotation and knocking people back when they get close.


I kinda like the scoundrel, but lets be honest, it's a one trick pony, and that trick was burst.

Now that the burst is average I don't really see much of a point to the class, it feels like an immobile assassin with a lower skillcap and no defensive cds.


Loving the sentinel though, overall amazing playstyle, there's just always something I can do, and always something I can do better. 2v1ing crappy marauders is also really fun.

Please read the Original post before you open that obnoxious black hole on your face.

Since this guy can't stay on topic I will:
I enjoy the Juggernaut (Immortal Spec) in pvp. The ability to guard someone and with the proper usages of taunts make them invincible until they take you out. (Works wonders on the ball carriers and or healers), is just to good to be true. That and non channeled force choke to get in position to force push someone off a ledge...perfect. Force leap for gap closing, force push to reset the CD of Force leap. Theres so much you can do, so little time XD.

I don't see very many but I play full Darkness spec 31/0/10 Assassin (tank). I've really been enjoying the playstyle. It's challenging enough to keep things interesting. I am really liking that you can actually play a tank/harass type role in SWTOR pvp. I never top the damage charts but that's not why rolled this character. So far, very entertained.

Absolutely love my Assassin. Deception spec.

Enjoying my Operative Mele spec. That's the 2 stealth classes.

Then I also like berserker types which to me is marauder so I'll make one of them later.

Started with a Sorc. Parked him at lvl 45 because it was truly boring and no challenge. Rolled an Arsenal spec Merc. Altho fun as hell with alot of mobility I got bored with him to and now only do the pvp daily then log him off.

Have a lvl 24 Powertech but not playing him atm. Was supposed to be my PvE tank. Friend and guildie rolled a tank with his mrs being healer so I figured let him handle it and I'll go pewpew dps instead

At the moment playing a jugg, sniper and operative.

Played properly the sniper is immense, I'm just having a hard time adjusting to the "turret" type fighting.

The jugg is cool, tank spec in pvp is fun but low level so to be really succesful I need a pocket healer (wich I have most of the times).

Love my operative. Only level 14 and rolled after the nerf and having an awesome time sneaking around picking my targets.

Always played stealth classes in earlier MMO's so when SW:TOR began I figured I wouldn't this time but meh.. It's to much fun to pass on. Can't wait to get up in levels to where skill actually does matter. 10-49 with bolster is just meh.. Fun but meh

If thats the case what you can do then is play pvp only exclusively and only do the class quests of your class thats only a few quests every planet.
While you play pvp youll also get your coms your valor, by the time you reach lvl 50 again with your new toon that toon will most likely be very close to valor 60 or at the very least past 30-40. You'll also be able to buy the pvp gear for certain lvls as you lvl up so youre gear pvp wise will also be much better then a freshly dinged lvl 50 that just starts pvping.

I myself enjoy vanguard immensely. Just yesterday my lvl 46 ended up 2nd as top dps, but I was the only one with 30K + protection and that we won made it even sweeter, knowing that I played a part in it. The trooper in general as reactive shield and adrenaline rush which are perfect for surviving attacks, not only that being able to aoe taunt from range versus say the jedi guardian where I have to be more or less in the center of enemies to hit the most people makes it all that just more preferable.
Then as a tank speced vanguard, Im able to charge(aka force leap) great distances from ground even to platforms and so on. Being able to harpoon ball carriers in huttball from the platforms close to our goal back to the ground is just priceless, same with pulling people into the acid pits. Another thing is pulling light armor, like SI or jedi consular into my group and then they get stomped to death. Being a tank here actually has more of a use then just carrying the flag like in wsg or eots in wow.
If im having this much fun, I simply can't want till lvl 50, random pugs may be bad, but if I can make that much of difference during lower lvls, I know I can at lvl 50.
