Between Jedi Consular (Shadow) and Jedi Knight (Guardian)? Looking for whichever one has the most acrobatic/fancy looking melee combat.

Acrobatic hmm I would have to think Sentinal as all they ever seem to do is jump ,flip,slash,stealth and repeat.But if its only between Guardian and Shadow then I would say Guardian just for force leap.

The Shadow most definitely, the use of a double bladed saber requires a lot of twirling and specific movements for the user to avoid hurting themselves with the second blade extended.

I vote mara/sent

Shadow/assassin does not have the leaps.

Leaps aside, I'm just looking for the fanciest lightsaber attacks =P

I love my sorceror's tumult (spinning kick) ability, so something similar to that maybe.

Lightsaber animations for Shadow suck, period. The only exception is if you are infiltration you will get clairvoyant strike which might be up your alley.

If you like your sorc kick then Shadow is totally what you should roll. Assassins get Spike which we hit people with our lightsaber hilt and knock them down on the ground. The Shadow version is like Tumult Kick for Sith Inquisitors. So think Tumult Kick but you have a reason to use it outside of PvE and they don't have to be incapacitated.

Otherwise Sentinel/Marauder have the most flashy lightsaber attacks. Guardian/Juggernaut isn't bad, but Shadow/Sin uses more force abilities than lightsaber attacks since they are a caster/melee hybrid. Of course Shadow/Sin get the most obvious melee attack in the game with the spinning double bladed lightsaber, but that is only in the Infiltration/Deception tree and you are very squishy in that spec and people target you from a mile away because they know you are squishy, plus it is a highly visible attack.

Hope that helps.
