As far as I am aware, there is no playable class that uses Techblades right? The only one I personally know that uses this so far is Qyzen, but please do correct me if I am wrong.

I was thinking that Techblades have the most potential when it comes to show good sword design, uniqueness and style, (Like in fantasy games) unlike the lightsabers which have to be all the same due to the actual lore.

So personally I would like to see large (even2 handed) tachblades because you can end up having a weapon that looks as cool and stylish to others as the troopers rifles or the smuggler's guns.

id like a tech/vibro-blade and electro/tech-staff oriented non-force wielding melee class

its a shame that jedi can use electrostaves and vibroblades, but it locks you out of a bunch of your abilities that require sabres, since they do look so cool and itd be nice to have a variety of some sort

Greetings-

There are a variety of companions that use them. Bounty Hunters have Torian and Skadge that use tech staves and tech blades, respectively.

The movies shows troops wearing glowing electroshields, so it could be a pretty nice (visually speaking) to have a class that either uses heavy Techblades, or small techblades+ shields.

As I said, I know companions do, I was specifying that I would love to play a character that can visually have those weapons though.

Maybe not techblades but vibroblades are a major part of the Operative class..

I guess most people got tunnel vision when they saw jedi/sith

Not vibroblades but vibroknifes, they are not the same thing.
Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place. Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you are, by definition, not smart enough to debug it.

Haven't even seen a Vibroknife yet, which is weird, been playing it quite a long time now...
