I have had several Ideas, and I think several of these would be very viable:
Class Abilities:
Commando/Mercenary and Vanguard/Powertech:
Skill Tree Abilites-
-Field Medic/Body Guard: Med Shield/Drop Shield
If anyone here has played Halo: Reach, then you will know what I am talking about. The shield would be placed down around where the Commando/Mercenary, healing for a good amount over time. Lasts 10 Seconds and has a 30s CD. Costs 35 energy cells/heat.
-Tactics/Advanced Prototype: Shoulder-Mounted Rocket Launcher/Lock-On Missile
The animation exists in game. The VG would grab a rocket launcher from his back(like in the Imp Makeb Story), a beeping sound would play, and the rocket would fire. The Animation for PT would be a laser tags the target, and the rocket is fired. The ability could not be LoS'ed. Cast time is 2.5s and the CD would be 30s. Costs 40 Energy Cells/heat.
-Shield Specialist/Shield Tech: Armor Lockup/Heat Shield:
Again, an idea I got from Halo: Reach, and would be similar to Force Barrier. It would be channeled over 5 seconds, making the VG/PT invincible but still generate threat. Would only be usable with 3 Power/Heat Screens, but would not respect the GC. 3 Minute CD.
I've got no ideas for the other classes, Gunnery/Arsenal, or Assault Specialist/Pyro.

The rocket launcher already exists in game, you might want to look up the shoulder cannon ability.

I really hope they don't keep increasing levels. Levels aren't content and they only serve to increase the barrier to entry for your game.
Below this is my referral link. If you press it you get free stuff and I get free stuff. This makes you, me....and Bioware happy, but don't let that stop you!

I actually WANT more levels. I can power through 1-55 in about 2 weeks of solid play. It's not hard to hit 55. I actually have slowed down on some of my toons just to enjoy playing through some stories again or for the first time. I want Bioware to ATLEAST make the level cap up to 70. but nothing more than 80.

Idea for Guardian

Battle Meditation- Only useable in Shien and Shi-Cho form, A toggle ability similar to guard that increases the damage or healing done by both the guardian and the person he is Meditating with by 5%, while reducing threat. Not useable in Soresu Form. It does not do anyting a normal guard does except reduce the threat of both targets by a small amount.

I stole the name from KOTOR, but call it what you want. Increases the dmg of the guardian and 1 other by 5% as long as they are within 30 meters of each other can't use it in tank stance or on a tank in a tank stance. That is something I would like to see maybe. (Idea similar to the Captain in LOTRO and Blade Brother ability, but not as powerful).

I'm talking about a weapon similar to a real life rocket launcher, like an RPG or SMAW.

Sith Sorcerer 56 Skill:

Epidemic
Cast Time: 2.0 Seconds
Duration: 18 Seconds
Cooldown: 30 Seconds
Description: The Sith Sorcerer launches a sphere of dark energy towards a target that deals X damage over 18 seconds. Once afflicted, the dark energy spreads like an epidemic to all enemy targets within a 15 meter radius and exists for 18 seconds. Epidemic cannot spread more than once per cast.

Consume Mind:
Cast Time: 1.0 Seconds
Duration: 8 seconds
Cooldown: None
Description: Consume Mind afflicts a target, increasing their cast time by 20% for its total duration.

Tainted Darkness:
Cast Time: 1.0 Second
Duration: 12 Seconds
Cooldown: 8 Seconds
Description: Tainted Darkness deals X damage over 12 seconds. While afflicted by this spell, the target speed is reduced by 50%

Drain Life:
Channel Time: 3.0 Seconds
Cooldown: 8 Seconds
Description: The Sorcerer channels the dark side of the force into target player, absorbing X life and restoring X life of their own.

These spells are geared more towards Madness spec than Lightning, but some of them can compliment Lightning. Epidemic will help Madness Sorcs spread their dots around while also adding another dot to stack. Consume Mind gives them an advantage against healers, increasing their value in Arenas by having utility no other class has (I think). Tainted Darkness gives them another spell to kite with, perhaps replace slow by adding damage. Drain Life could be something that replaces Force Lightning in a Madness Sorc's rotation and can compliment their force management and making consumption less risky by giving them an offensive way of gaining life.
