So, overall i have absolutely no complaints with it. It fits the archetype and philosophies, just like the lightning attacks from inquis fit their archetype and philosophies.
I have no intention of seeing the Sage become ferocious or flashy. This is about them having an often used attack that just seems flat and boring after its 20th use and almost grating after its 2000th. I want the attack to feel like it's dangerous. This just doesn't, not anymore.

I made a suggestion quite a while ago to make it more of a Channeled Project. think about its current casting animation, Instead of the pebbles it basically launches Rocks/debris at them so its basically casting 3 'projects'. BW could make the animation a little more snazzy by instead of just throwing three 'rocks' at them, You first lift the rocks and they hover around your character and it begins launching them every second. Then they could just fall and fade away if interrupted.

EDIT: OR it could have an animation similar to that of the way Sidious throws those round booth thingys at Yoda near the end of Episode 3.

Surely if rocks and droids are a stretch, then enitre senate house seating platforms coming up from the deck of the Esseles is even more of a stretch?

I agree tk throw is very weak looking the only reason I rolled a republic player is cause of the old project. If tk throw was project times x. I would be in heaven

Maybe add some Sticks to those Stones lol.

Or make them highly agitated Lava Pebbles :-)

Finding stones in a ship can be odd.

Finding red-hot-lava-like stones in a ship is for sure odd and one thousand times more shocking.

While your idea would look cool, it unfortunitely would take a lot longer than the sith ability. That was why the original Project got changed, because it was faster imp side. There would be no balance between the mirrors.

The only real fix I can see for this would be to add in "Forcey" lines or a powerfull "Wind" like effect. I don't want that, as I can see the "Avatar" rip offs coming out in droves.

I've been thinking about this and I think I've got a neat idea. Have the pebbles that you toss, start to encircle the target after reaching him, making it appear that you're creating a whirlwind of damaging debris on the target.

Gotta say, planned to roll a new "Jedi Sage" because I like sorceror class so much, and those pebbles are giving me pause. Probably gonna go shadow just because the animation is boring.

No class relies on a single attack like Sage/Sorceror does with the lightning/rocks. The idea of spamming them constantly through a whole playthrough is a little dispiriting.

I agree big rocks would be preferable.

I have been and always will be disappointed with the choice of names for Telekinetic Throw and Project. I wish they'd reverse their names instead. But as far as the OP goes, I'm fine with it but that's because it's purely cosmetic. Telekinetic Throw may not seem like it's as ****** as Force Lightning but graphics don't count for numbers when you're hitting the same ranges, if specced right. That alone, I'm ok with. I'll stick to throwing pebbles, you stick to your lightning, lets fight, and see who hurts more :P

Telekinetic Wave however, I do miss the whole jump and land on the floor. It's more flare-ish while Overload is straight up brute-ish, but I would like to see it changed back. Unless if that was a bug, if so nevermind.


Off topic, they do need to switch the names of TT and P. I think of the analogy they portray - a projector for example throws an image onto a surface and streams it for continued footage. Meanwhile Telekinetic Throw best reminds me of games like Psi Ops where you target one specific object and chuck it at your opponent.
