I like it too, but I still feel it's the weakest of the four.

As for the Inquisitor, there are many things I like about the character. I know many are down on the class as a whole, but I can't agree. She may be my alt, but I probably use her more than my main at this point. At the very least it's the one and only class where I actually use all of my companions.

How can you compare what is happening to the inquisitor to Ghostbusters?
*facepalm*

It's good to have a class that revolves around dark side knowledge,dark side artifacts and dark side lore, and not only simple power plays and war vs the opposite faction.

Sith inq story= best so far,imo.

Consular teamates are boring. Except the padawan, but you have her around lvl 45~...
Consular story is horrible, and obring. Also, the end is really obvious. And the end is all about "who is the bad guy", when you can deduce it fairly quickly if you have half a brain.

Following may or may not contain spoilers:

Yeah looking for secret knowledge of the ancient sith lords is all fine and dandy. Its what I would expect from inquisitor storyline. However, how is it handled? Person X (cant spoil it) just tells inq what its about. "Hey I heard this sith lord Y used to be really good at consuming ghosts and stuff.." I think you should do the same and you should go here and here to pick up ghost A and B.. I mean seriously, what secret is there about that knowledge then?

It irks me that inquisitor just does what he is told instead of figuring things out himself.

If he accomplishes something, like that spaceship weapon thingy, the whole thing is instantly dropped after the mission is done, even though technically the inquisitor has a great weapon at his disposal, its not explained at all why it isnt used afterwards, or even kept in check. Similar annoying plot holes aplenty, the most glaring one being thanaton just randomly dropped into the story and he for some vague reason just has to kill the inq.

The inq story is full of annoying small details that are handled bad. For instance, Zash calls inquisitor her apprentice yet doesnt teach a single thing to the inq. On the warrior side Baras explains the sith code to the warrior in their very first meeting in comparison.. Zashs first discussion with the inq goes like "Hey, go fetch this thing for me". That pretty much sums up inquisitor storyline. Instead of great writing like in BH and warrior stories, you get wow-like genericness.

Not to mention inquisitor doesnt get to manipulate anyone (tries to manipulate Ashara but only succeeds halfway and gets a confused emo jedi in return), doesnt get to do any political trickery that doesnt involve combat, or pretty much anything else that you would expect from an inquisitor except shoot lightning from his fingers..

That off the top of my head.

ps. I have a hard time believing consular companions are worse than inquisitors. The only one with some kind of dark side feel to him is Khem Val. And he doesnt even talk galactic basic.

I have to disagree with some of you about the SI storyline. I assume I'm still in Chapter 1. I have a female Rattataki SI-A and it's fun manipulating everyone around you. Even your companions.
Spoiler


One con to the SI questing is the planet hopping. Not only do you have search for your relics(which is more fun) you have to deal with war story. Personally, if we're not supposed to indulge in the war effort as much anyways, why should I be forced to do the side quests war storylines when in fact, I really don't mind being detached to the effort. The point of the Sith Inquisitor is self-empowerment(big shock there) and the fact that it's about you spinning your own little twist to the plot and making everyone realize in the very end that you're the one in charge.

Xalek could be interesting, but yes, he comes too late and isn't fleshed out enough. My inquis would totally throw over her sexy pirate man for her adorable little archeologist, but that may only be me. When she asked him if he was trying to flirt with her and he was all 'i would never be that presumptuous' (or whatever it was that he actually said) I really wanted her to be able to ask him why he wasn't. Because, yeah, archeologists.

Bah. I am completely loving the IA story so far. I adore Vash at level 20.

I do however throw operating vibro-daggers at all the people in [1. General] who make (what they think are) "clever" comments that have spoiled this story for me before it's fully played out. In that I know the twist

It is however already a mile better than the consular story that has you fluttering about the universe doing basically pointless things. Sigh. The consular story is uninspiring, badly written and on a useless premise.

Would the ruined for me story of the IA come close to the jaw dropping twist in the Jedi Knight chapter 1 line? Probably even beat it.

My first character is a sorcerer and I played her to 50. I found chapter 1 very engaging. It does sag a bit in later levels but picks up interest again as the story starts approaching the climax.

By contrast, I got a Sith warrior to 10 and I'm not engaged enough to continue. I'm some guy's enforcer. So what? At this point with the sorcerer there was rivalry and intrigue, and a boss I'd actually built up a relationship with. At this point with a smuggler you are on the trail of the guy who stole your ship. A bounty hunter is building up to a big contest, with rivalries on the side. Different classes have different pacing, I guess.

Whether the others lose steam later on, I don't know, but for the first 30 levels or so (and at times later on), I was enjoying sorcerer so much that it annoyed me to have to take time off from the main story to go do side quests to keep my level up.

So many negative posts. One thing I will agree on is that the SI is not the manipulator/deceiver that is was advertised to be (SW is more of that). HOWEVER I really enjoyed the story. It's all about the pursuit of power and plays out to be like the story of a true Sith, which is the struggle between master and apprentice. I thoroughly enjoyed playing my DS inq because that's what I always considered a force savvy Sith to be like (too far gone to try and redeem to the LS). I have heard some great things about the LS story too, and that it makes much more sense in act III. Playing a DS inq is your stereotypical Sith- throughout the story your looking for self preservation and seeking personal power, while gaining a very large power base (Remind me ALOT of Darth Plagueis actually). A LS inq is looking to fundamentally change the empire from the top-down (Which is why Thanaton despises everything you stand for).
