1) I was a double bladed wielding Jedi in SWG.
2) Darth Maul is awesome.
3) Khem kicks butt and Vette is annoying.

A word to the wise is not necessary. It's the stupid ones that need the advice.

Hard work often pays off over time, but laziness always pays off immediately.

I actually prefer dual wield or single, it can't do that with assassin

minus the stealth for me and add death field.

beautiful freaking balance of force and lightsaber techs. sw is all slashing and sorc plays like some kinda dumb lightning mage. For me, the assassin is what a sith should be like.

Played SS all the way through the story in the beta so I was planning on going SS on live but at the last minute I chose sin to mix it up. Plus i do love me some db saber (can't wait to see the sexiness of a silver blade) and mostly bc I know as an SS i know 9/10 of the time in a raid the SS I will be asked to heal and I just healed for years in warhammer online so no more bloody healing.

Basically this I love the single saber vader style, played the jugg in beta turned out to be a more 'ragh barbarian smash' then a proper sith class. I'm quite sorely disappointed there isn't a larger focus on force choke/pull/crush in one of the trees that would have been awesome.

Madness assasin is more what a jedi/sith class 'should' be uses force powers and the saber.

I'm choosing them because the use melee and magic, i always like picking the spellblade archtypes (Its why i mained a DK in wow), and also having a bad *** weapon helps the decision.

I had been very conflicted between rolling a Sorcerer vs Assassin for quite some time. Played the SI republic counterparts during beta and was convinced I'd be going Sorcerer at launch.

Then I realized that I didn't want to spam a lightning attack over and over again (as cool as they are in moderation). So I decided to roll and assassin. Not too much lightning, but just enough to still be exciting. Plus they're are super beastly in PVP.
