We need to spice things up a bit. This is a Star Wars universe, where are the droids and wookies? Imagine a two new classes being introduced into the game, a wookie and a droid class. Wookie is Republic and Droid is Empire. They mirror each other and neither can be modfied via costume. They both do not speak, only commnunicate via subtitles and there is not class story. You unlock them at level 60. They can either be tank, heal or dps and be ranged or melee depending on which type of droid/wookie you select. You can steal all the ideas from Battlefront 2 in regards to moves, movement and abilites. Lets make this game thrive like it should!!!!!!!!!!

Debatable, but there are many ways to do so. I favour a but of nutmeg, some ginger, and a very small amount of Cayenne pepper.

I look around in-game, and I see Wookiees and droids fairly often.

Wookiee (with two Es...) would not be a *class*. That would be like making "Human" a class.

Come to think of it, "Droid" would not be a class either, for much the same reason, except in spades. (Floaty probe droid? Ring-necked protocol droid? Three-legged major battledroid? Astromech?)

O-o-o-o-o-o-kay, but I don't see anything substantive about the classes here. What would they do? What kind of abilities? Explain in words for those among us who aren't interested in BF2 and therefore don't know what you're basing the idea on.

For sure, but I don't think new classes are the way to do that, especially not story-free classes in a story-driven MMORPG.

I'm trying to figure out how the entire Knight's saga would play out:

I've melded into your mother board, and there's nothing you can do about it...

Nope, not going to buy that. I was hoping for something interesting, but it's just straws to grasp at? Where's the Imperial Trooper, or the SIS Agent? Those have potential, depending on how they're handled, but really they'd just be more of the same, basically. I can understand why they were left out, but they could have been fun, if they'd been developed from the start. Move Smuggler over to mirror BH instead of IA. W/out stories though, there's really no point.

This isn't my idea, someone posted it a while back on the forums, but I really like it: an Echani fighter class. Echani would be a species option of course(think the Last Handmaiden from KOTOR 2), while the fighter class would be centered around Echani martial arts and would essentially be SWTOR's version of a "monk" class.

Those would be races, not classes.

I did laugh a bit though when thinking of what special abilities a wookie class would have and all I could think of was yell loud, dislocate your arm, and intimidate by yelling even louder.

An imperial trooper class would be dope

You could base a class on a species tho, just steal moves and ideas from the movie and Battlefront series,, same for droid. I mentioned those two because the blueprint is already laid out.

If the only way they can add a new class is by doing a 1-50 level story campaign then we would never see a new class in the game, ever. lol

At the end of this day, this game lacks variety within the universe, not story

I hate to say it but focusing solely on story is why this game's sub count has dropped from 1 million to around 100k and why there are only 5 servers left (2 out of the 5) are practically dead. People need a reason to sub every month and people who only play for story, only need one month's sub in order to complete the content. They arent the gears that keep SWTOR running and the servers "on-line". Especially since most of them quit after the story is complete, they are not the ones investing in the cartel market nor do they keep resubbing. I agree that story is imperative but adding new classes and species would make people stay. Investing in making SWTOR a universe may be a better idea than making a 10 hour story. Just my opinion.
