As George Takei would say - "Oh my!" That's certainly a nice announcement to see on a Monday afternoon.

Cathar Bounty Hunter or Sith? Yes please - I'm totally gonna hold off playing mine now.
New planet? How could I not be down?
HK-51? You're damn straight!

But the best part...

New level cap... could that mean.... more story? BOO-YAH! I'm so down!

But they look cool so I'm not complaining!

Hopefully the first xpac will let us sit in chairs.
Bioware didn't give the Cathar their name. Dark Horse Comics did, with their "Tales of the Jedi" series.

Bah, you got a lot of work to do to turn me back into a fanboy. I hope Dragon Age 3 comes out next year.
and the Force beat generic Swords and Magic any day. 8/26/14 That was my old signature but after RotHC, I went back to superheroes and swords and magic. Now waiting on Dragon Age and a SWTOR story expac for my Bioware fix 7/30/15 Returned for KotFE. Finally, a story expac.

Yeah, yeah, Cathar...whatever.

The major news here is that my shadow will get to do the Star Wars kid move like every staff-wielding NPC in the game! Or am I the only one that thinks of the "Star Wars Kid" every time I see an NPC use Spinning Strikes?

Actually, what the shadow did in the video looks a lot better than Spinning Strikes. But I digress. Star Wars Kid!

New content is always welcome, I look forward to it. A new race is welcome, not real pleased that BW is still not giving us more distinct races from the star wars IP when there are so very many iconic races to choose from, Cathar would not have been my first choice, but it's better than nothing. I hope we get additional character slots to accomidate new toons. pretty happy about the level cap increase.

SWTOR won't truly represent the spirit of Star Wars until numerous iconic star wars non-human alien species are playable.

I know..."powers that be," you'll note. Not Bioware.
House Arn on Lord Adraas. Currently composed of Tyfe (a Jedi Sentinel) , Wilfryd (a luckless roustabout Scoundrel), Erryl (a Trooper who eats his chunky soup and defends his Republic), and Therys (a mean old Sith Sorc with a meaner past).

Whoops. I could have sworn I'd read "Bioware" in your post. My apologies, mate. Apparently, I didn't get anywhere near enough caffeine in me as I'd thought this morning.
