Jedi Knight vs Sith Warrior (also, is Doc really that bad?)

Just finished leveling my SW to, well okay, 49, but I really enjoyed the Marauder play style (Carnage). Out of curiosity, which branch/spec is roughly the same play-style wise?

Also, I've heard some really negative things about Doc (from what I've read, guys seem to love him while girls have issues with his 'skeezy-ness'). Being a chick who plays female toons, and also being someone who really only ever uses healing companions (<3 Lokin and Guss), just how annoying is he? Malavai Quinn annoying? (As in, the guy constantly annoyed me so much that I had him run around in his skivvies because I figured it would embarrass him.)

Not *cough* that I get too invested in companions and, er, mentally attribute them with emotions or anything

Combat tree is the mirror tree to Carnage, Sent is the mirror class to Mara. Playing a Combat Sent will feel exactly the same as a carnage Mara

I don't really want to say too much here or spoil anything but Doc and Quinn are for the most part have quite the opposite personalities/outlook on life in general. I can't give you too much perspective on the romance end of it because I'm a d00d and always roll male toons but I really enjoyed them both and used both extensively.

Probably not much of a spoiler but just in case, also mentioned Quinn in here as well.

As far as their healing goes, they are mirrors of each other in the same way that operatives and scoundrels are mirrors. That's the type of game mechanic they are both based on (as in not commando/merc heals or sage/sorc heals)

Different people like different things. I'm a female and really liked the romance with Doc, it was fun and entertaining. Give it a try and see what you make of it =)

Will replay it one day when I want to lvl a Guardian.

Some girls like him. I pretty much loathe him. He is, indeed, extremely skeezy. If you've played a Consular and met Theran, you've met Doc. Full of himself, player, hits repeatedly on female Knights in typical disrespectful smug dudebro fashion even when you show absolutely nothing but contempt and annoyance in return...

But yes, he is a ~hurt lonely sweetheart~ under all the jack@ss, if you consider that a legit excuse for unacceptably sexist and obnoxious behavior.

Theran at least pretends to be polite and respectful.

If you liked Gaius Baltar in BattleStar Galactica, you'll feel right at home with Doc.

That said, I like Doc. He's got his faults (who doesn't?) but he always manages to do the right thing when it matters the most.

That spineless, manipulative, cowardly, weak, hedonistic D-bag? I kinda dislike Doc because he acts like a pig, but comparing him to Baltar is a low blow...

No we don't. Doc is that douchebag that is always hitting on your girlfriend and you are never really sure why you are hanging out with him.

Doc would pop his collar IRL.
Unsubscribed due to no new Operations.
I am happy that there will be a renewed focus on story, I love story, its why I picked this MMO. But I picked an MMO, not an episodic single player RPG that I have to pay a subscription to receive the episodes.

Is there a person in the world who likes Gaius? xD Pompous freak
