They're going to be a Cartel Market unlock - so save your coins if you want one. Also, it's likely that they won't be in by the end of this year. There's going to be one more major content update this year (which is likely the Makeb storyline) and Cathar probably won't be in it. Not for certain, of course, but unlikely.
aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?

I think the Cathar are a popular species. But I personally would rather see Bothans. Maybe Bothans will be added later. I have to admit that I would probably pay to play a Bothan. But Bothans might take a bit more work because they are smaller in size than other species.

I'd like to open saber options for all force classes too. A Jedi Knight/ Sith Warrior using a saberstaff would make for some awesome offensive and defensive capabilities. Especially to have a Cathar Jedi Guardian armed with one of those? Good night sweet prince.

I know I'll definitely be playing a Cathar Knight. I just wish [because I know hey won't do it] they would get someone to VO the Cathar separate so they have their distinct russian-esque accent and the growls on the harder syllables.

Are Carthar known for having Russian accents? I thought only Juhani did.

I cant wait for the Cathar to be playable either. I actually really like the species and think it would be cool to play as one. I am saving at least one slot for a Cathar character. ::sy _item::csw_blue saber:

I wouldn't say Russian accents, but they do sound different. Humans evolved from omnivores while Cathar evolved from carnivores. Their dental structure would produce a voice with much more pronounced sibilants. It would be very cool for Bioware to do this with the voice, but I don't see them redoing the voice for all eight classes on all missions. And I don't see how you could apply a filter to the existing ones to modify the sound sufficiently (but I'm not sound effects artist).

Back on topic, I am still waiting eagerly for the Cathar to be released. I'm feeling a bit burnt out on the game. The new tier 7 ship components have bankrupted me between my two 50s I've managed five or six of the parts and now I'm broke. So I've been playing a lot of Skyrim and LOTRO while I rebuild my savings on the AH.

cathar suck ***. There are tons of species that bioware already has some models for, shown by some npcs, that would be a much better addition to the game. Maybe even as species that was *gasp* in the movies?

I have been saving character slots for a Cathar smuggler and a Sith maurader.
I think they would be the ideal first race to make playable and I would not mind if they cost 600 CP to unlock.
Remember Antaria, Naboo, Starsider Server.

I'm waiting to make a second Vanguard so I can see Jorgan's reaction to my Cathar f!trooper walking in the room.

So am i the only one sitting here thinking they put Chiss in (Probably) because of Thrawn... Where are my Noghri? Just a wish but i would love to have the Noghri as a playable they can speak basic two with a rather raspy voice which might be fun.
