I like Exfiltrate, I'm just terrible at using it.

It's a lot of fun, but I tend to overshoot or not have my camera at quite the right angle. I'm sure I'll get used to it, just like the new Stim Boost

I really can't say favorite, but I can tell you that I liked most of the class changes. So I'll just say which change I like best for each class that I've played so far.

Sniper: The change to Followthrough has upped my DPS by a fairly good amount.
Guardian: The changes to Guardian Strike and Sundering Strike have altered by rotation, but my survivability is greatly increased.
Commando: The changes to the healing tree (particularly the buff to Kolto Bomb) have been of great help to my healing.
Powertech: At first, the Power Screen messed up my rotation, but now I wouldn't go back.
Marauder: Adding the defensive increases to Carnage have upped the survivability on my otherwise squishy Marauder.

I have a few other classes to test, but so far I am loving the changes. Can't wait to see what the new abilities can do!

Sniper, in general, is much more fun than before 2.0, and I actually 'liked' it then. Now, I feel like a 'double-tap' machine with Followthrough proccing off of everything.

I really like the change to Thermal Detonator/Assault Plastique for Powertechs/ definitely didn't kill the needed burst in PVP, and is totally viable now for PVE DPS!

Oh wait

On a serious note:

Double saber throw is fantastic for Marauders.
Followthrough refresh for MM snipers is just a blast.

Eh, you guys did right for 2 out of my 3 favorite classes at least.

The changes to the Defense Guardian and the addition of Saber Reflect! So awesome!
Jedi Guardian -- Miscreant (65)
Formerly of Mind Trick and Corellian Run -- Now of The Shadowlands

Force Barrier animation is good, everytime I activate it it feels more like I am trapped in my own bubble with my toon saying, "Help Help I am being repressed by this bubble".
The answer is easy the question is not....oh who am I kidding!!!.

Dual Saber throw! Bonus points for first using it on Mekeb and having it take out 5 "innocents" standing by the enemy.
