So basically i'm just trying to compare the classes from WoW to the classes in SWTOR and am going to base my class roll off this thread. I am leaning more towards playign something mage or hunter like. If anyone could give a detailed list that would be great, So far i know for sure that:

Inquisitor Assassin -> Feral druid / Rogue ish?
Inquisitor Sorcerror -> Mage / Warlock ish?

Any more?

My advice is to stop comparing this game to WoW.

It's for a general feel for all the classes and for the people who have had the time to play all the classes and would like to give some kind of valid opinions.

I have played most of the classes. And my advice is to not compare it to WoW. This is not WoW. TOR is a very different structure.

This is not WoW and it does not have the same classes.

I understand the point behind this thread, but a good number of visitors aren't too keen on the "TOR / WoW Comparison" topic. I'm not saying it's unjustified as the game really does try to be its own beast, starting with no auto-attack and the player typically fighting 1 - 4 mobs at any given quest.

But to answer your original question, the parallels are definitely there. But the differences are so vast, a comparison could take all day.

Operative = WoW Rogue with heals
Sniper/Gunslinger = Hunter(long ranged weapon DPS)
Shadow/Assassin = Enhancement Shaman without heals, with Stealth
Sith Warrior/Jedi Knight = WoW Warrior
Sorcerer/Sage = Priest

It's a loose comparison tho, go to the website and see the each class description and class roles. It's easy and accurate.
