At this point I doubt it unless the game does a massive comeback.. so possible. as it has been said by devs that 2019 is to be the biggest year yet in game.

Not sure if we'll ever get new classes but some new specs would be cool.
I've always wanted something like Count Dooku for sorc or assassin, A duelist who uses finesse instead of brute strength and uses a bit of lightning and other abilities (although really I could have this if they just let me use a single saber on assassins.)

No. The way each class has it's own vanilla story... no. No way they'll make another class story. They struggle with stories between flashpoints. If they made a new class it would have to be something post vanilla without a story which would severely limit what you could do with it.

I like your idea for a new class. I am all for it. But I feel that if a new class gets added, they would need to ad two. One force class and a non force class. Think about it. If one of those got implemented and the other not, how would the "community" act? I personally wouldn't care, I would gladly play any class. I think if you were going to bring something in like what you were saying with the summoning and animals, extend it to the non force class and make like a beast-master/trainer type class. I would play the crap out of that.

Jedi Mirror class could be the Beastmaster.

Which is indeed one of the main reasons why it would be very difficult for the devs to add a new class. You could potentially do something post-vanilla, a brief class story that gets you to know the character and then continue with the main story that will be introduced in 6.0. But the problem with that is that you'll have 8 classes that have been the Outlander/Alliance Commander and 1 class that wouldn't have been. I admit it's easier to keep up with something like that in a new story rather than retroactively add stuff, but it might require more resources than Bioware has at the moment.

A possible solution would be maybe to add a 3d Advanced Class to one of the main classes we have already. Take the idea I posted in the OP for example, the Sith Alchemist and Jedi Seer could be an advanced class of the Sith Inquisitor and Jedi Consular respectively.

Yet the issue with that is which of the 8 classes do you favour with an additional Advanced Class? On top of that, if they'd add an additional Advanced Class to one of the main classes, would the devs eventually have to add additional Advanced Classes for the others as well?

I guess you donít play Consular much because there is already Jedi Seer, itís the heal spec. Given the way companions work, a Beastmaster or Undead summoner doesnít really work either. When you add in the factors of time to create two fully cinematic voiced over vanilla class stories Iíd say this has no chance.

Iíd rather they work on content that all classes can enjoy, than make a pair of new classes that youíll have to level up to 70, then level through GC rank 300, then progress through KOTFE/KOTET/Traitor storyline, etc.

I like everything that has been stated in this thread, I agree that it's unlikely, but probable assuming 2019 rejuvenises the game. I do have a question, though, and admittedly I'm not a lore person so excuse me ignorance. But, necromancy sounds pretty similar to Darth Plagues's schtick? So, I'm just wondering if that wouldn't be the best path to take any, potential "hypothetical" new class?

alchemist i can see being added as an advanced class to the SI, in much the same way i can see Jedi General and Sith Commander going to the JK and SW.

i can see possibilities for new classes like imperial soldier and republic spy. The imperial solider does a similar thing to the republic soldier, the republic spy also does the same to the imperial spy, only a lot less shady in dark dealings.

having the perfect mirroring of classes and knowing how these sides view their conflicts gives a greater insight in the warfront.

I wouldn't mind seeing a non force using melee character, using the old "throwaway" weapons, force pikes, electrostaves, and so on.

An old game I use to play, Mortal Kombat influenced, was Masters of Terras Kasi. This non force using martial art was hinted at in Rogue One, with the blind member of the Church of the force, and verified in Han Solo Story.

So, Instead of yet another Jedi or Sith class, why not have the Terras Kasi Monk start at Level 50, on its own unique planet, choosing it's faction at the end of the area as the climax of the story?

The counterpart to this, since the classes seem to be done in two's, could steal an idea from a couple of posters ago on this thread, and intorduce the Terras Kasi Beastmaster.
