All classes and class balance will shift, this from the dev notes. Pretty exciting. What class will be the new flavor of the month?

We know you're all very interested to hear about how the new level cap is going to affect your class, and I wanted to share a little information about the upcoming changes with you. As part of the new content, every skill tree will be expanding and you can expect significant updates. Players will earn a new skill point with each level, and new skills will be available in each skill tree. Additionally, a new active ability will be introduced for each Advanced Class. We'll have more details about many aspects of Rise of the Hutt Cartel as we approach launch, so keep your eyes on the website and dev tracker!

I wonder if they plan to "lock" the current trees and introduce higher tiers. There will be some crazy (possibly OP) hybrid builds otherwise

Don't even think about hybrids

If they simply give you 5 basic points some examples are....


Full Combat sentinels with overload saber

Healing operatives with a corrosive grenade

Full juggernaut tanks w/ leap cc immunity

Healing sorcs with chain lightning

This isn't even the worst part....

Think of all the op hybrid specs possible

Bioware must tread carefully with how they do this
Urdenot Level 65 Sorc
Urdonught Level 65 Scoundrel

Healing stunbubble sorcs would get an interrupt immunity cd with only one more skill point.

Yes I know the stunbubble is going to get nerfed while lolsmashers get a 100% damage buff, but oh well.

Also nerf operatives, they stunlock keyboards
Adrian-Defense Guardian | Kerrik-Vigilance Guardian | Matari-Scoundrel Healer | Treston-Pyromaniac Vanguard | Eamen-Sage Healer
Kendrew-Op Healer | Andreus-Sorc Healer | Matarion-Juggernaut Smasher | Darrien-Veng Juggernaut

I can see it now,cooldowns for Scoundrels and Operatives will be doubled,all damage cut by 25% and healing by 50%.
Assasins and Shadows damage will be upped 15%.
Sent's and Marauders damage upped 20% and cooldowns cut to three seconds.

All classes but Operative and Scoundrel's will recieve a anti Op/Sc Heroic that kills them on site with a 1 minute cooldown.

Pyrotechs with hydraulic overrides

Full lethality/concealment ops w/ koltoprobe (3 more points until they get the useful talent though LOL how funny. even operatives still get the worst!)

my viggy guard will enjoy warding call!

you forgot about rage juggernauts with unstoppable. This would probably be the most overpowered "hybrid" 4 sec of cc immunity and 20% dr on leap. Bubble stun can't compete with that.
