A: You will not, despite promises of being 'iconic', be able to get everything about the Cinematic Jedi - Yoda, Luke Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Qui-Gon Jin, Anakin Skywalker, Mace Windu, etc - in any one class. The closest are the Jedi Guardian (wears heavy armor, however), Jedi Shadow (wields a double-bladed lightsaber), and a Jedi Sage (barely uses its lightsaber.) You'll have to decide what you're most willing to compromise on out of the three of them.
I don't know if thats 100% true! Haha, Yoda = Sage, Obiwan = Guardian, Late Anakin = Sentinel, Luke = Guardian, no Iconic Jedi in the movies used Double Blades IIRC? Although I admit I don't watch Episodes 1-3 much..

Yeah but Yoda was great with a lightsaber, something Sages won't be.

ObiWan didn't have to wear armor except during the Clone Wars.

Anakin never depended on dual wielding.

The list goes on. Not trying to flame or be annoying, but Astral's talking about all the people who want to be a Jedi that wields both Force and a lightsaber, wearing no armor, and essentially, being good at everything.

So, while stealthed, do we punch up blackout and force cloak and it just stacks up...or do we open up with WB until the effect is about to expire, then hit blackout, continue, then force cloak?

Pre-spam for buff or regain buff with them during spam, basically?

Happy to see that your guide is back.
Emotion, yet peace. Ignorance, yet knowledge.
Passion, yet serenity. Chaos, yet harmony.
Death, yet the Force.

its one after the other after the other
The Crew Skills button must also be a UI bug like the HIGH setting for textures.

You get Shadow's Respite (+energy regen) from breaking stealth for 6 seconds.

1) Stealth up to a mob/pack/whatever
2) Attack
3) 6 seconds later, hit Black Out
4) 6 seconds after that, hit Force Cloak
5) Attack to break Stealth

This is assuming you have Masked Assault. Which you should by level 26 when you get WB.
