Hi all.

I am wondering, and hope to get some advice from those with experience, which class in SWTOR provides the best/most buffs?

I played around a little on beta but I'm not well versed enough to answer this question so I'm seeking some advice.

You see I played a Captain on LOTRO and loved it. I would say that set up is my ideal class, but mainly I'm looking for another buffer. I understand there aren't really any straight buffers in the game but am looking for the class with the best buffs.

Please feel free to comment

Regards.

One of the great things about SWTOR is that each class provides a very useful buff. The value of each depends on what class you're playing, but they're all pretty sweet!

Yep I'm aware of the hour-long class buffs but is there a SINGLE class that excels in buffing?

Aside from damage shields, I can't thing of any other player buffs. Several classes have self buffs that affect critical chance and stuff like that.

As far as I know, JK and Sith Warrior provide a buff like Inspiration (JK Republic) that gives the entire group a 15% damage and healing buff.

Most classes have one buff they can give to other players (the hour long stat buffs of different kinds). So if you have a nice mix of classes in a group you'll get lots of nice buffs. The Jedi Sentinel's also have a Centering buff, in addition to their hour long buff, that gives a different buff to the group depending on what spec you choose.
