Any Thoughts On Expansion Classes?

A new class would be a truly massive expansion.. it's not only the class and the class specific content itself - the reaction of many NPCs depends on the class of the player character. Therefore every single NPC would have to be checked and if in many, many cases the orignal voice actor brought back in to record another few lines.
Ah, yes. "Reapers."

Honestly, Creature handler and Droid Engineer would be relatively easy to pull off. Companions would be the same as normal companions and you would treat the player as what ever animal/droid in combat it would be a toggleable form with it's own bar. That would allow the player to be involved directly make the droid tech have a tank dps and heal dps tree and have the creature handler have a pure dps and a tank dps tree.

There are hints in the SWTOR Encyclopedia in the faction sections that cover all four base classes (interestingly, Smugglers and Bounty Hunters are discussed not in the Republic or Empire sections of the book but a third one devoted to the Underworld).

In addition to the character classes, the Republic section also goes into some detail regarding
Spoiler
while the Empire section includes a lengthy section on
Spoiler
. While of course it is possible that these were placed where they were simply to round out descriptions of each faction and its assets, they were included in the same manner as character classes, missing only a description of the class starship and profiles of class companions.

So those two are at least possible new classes coming at some point. The Lore is already there.

agree,SIS agent as a class identical to the IA and imperial trooper indentical to the trooper.

Engineer for both sides would be cool, being able to just use gadgets like droid minions and such would be rather interesting and add flavor to the PvP area.

Not necessarily a lot of Npcs who talk to "Non" force users say "sir" or "you" or some other name that isn't specific to their class.

Just found this thread and wanted to chime in!

Since most gameplay class roles are filled the only reason to add a new class is story. So why not add a betrayal system rather than a brand new class? Basically play a pub class for the imps or vice versa? you already have half the content done with planetary quests. All they have to do is the class related quests which is minimal about 10 to 20 class quests per class! game on!

I think it would be a pain, and not worth doing.

But if they did...Assassin Droid! Be the HK!

I think they should add a third faction first.
