If memory serves, how much the ritual affected you, without any indication that the Consular was progressively weakening, but fair point.

True, but the "hundreds versus a large handful" thing is still relevant.
They mention how you look weak from it before and after. Believe there was even a comment about how much do you think you could hold up as you continue to weaken yourself.

But other than dialogue, they don't give you anything to show you how weak you get. Though, I believe I heard, back in beta, they did.

And you're right, hundreds vs a large handful would be different, but it should be remember how Yuon mentions just how powerful the Consular is first thing in the story.

But as I've said before I feel all the force using classes are equal in power. I just feel the Consular gets overlooked a lot. Even later in the story. Ziost my Consular shows how much power she has in Chapter 1 and on Ziost I have to have her use a rocket launcher to get through a lesser door?

Completely different thing
True, but Parkanas lets Morrage in and still a powerful Sith Lord who drove Jedi off a planet.

On paper inquisitor should win. But as always the good guys find a way. Some kind of overconfidence or something similar to the situation in episode 1 with Obi-Wan and Maul.

With or without the force ghosts? I think it should be without, meaning with them the inquisitor is pretty insanely powerful, otherwise the inquisitor character would be pretty pathetic for a main protagonist, which means it would be super bad story telling in such a medium and i don't think they would do that.

Also the Dark Side is supposed to be more powerful in general, in regards to display in combat at least. If the light siders were more powerful or equal, the dark side would not be tempting or worth the trouble in the first place. When the light siders win, when they win, they do it not cus because they are more powerful but because of other things that the dark side lacks in and the light side is better at, not display of ''power''.

If it was all to the individual and not the side of the force, instead of a combination of the two , the Dark Side would not be a threat ever, hence all of Star Wars lore is bs and without meaning. Hence the Inquisitor should win on paper.

I'm drunk though so i might be wrong. Let's hope i won't cringe when i wake up later.

For the Inquisitor (my second fave, if not tied for first, story line) and the ghosts, I'd say that's the Inquisitor building up in power. Inquisitor, unlike the other three, doesn't start out as powerful. All four are of course gaining power as they go along.

However, as we can see, Knight and Warrior take on the voice of the emperor without needing ghosts. Inquisitor needs the ghosts to take on Thanaton, weaker than the voices, I'd would think most would agree.

However, as for the dark side being more powerful and light side always weaker, that assumes that a light sider can't be more powerful or that a powerful individual can't want more power, for whatever reason.

And if I recall, it's not that Dark Side is more powerful, it's easier, faster...so for many, it could be the better way to go, if they're not as powerful or smart or patient. I'm weak, I can't out power that powerful light sider, it's upsetting me, driving me to the dark side, I can now feel how I'm just as powerful as them...hahahahaha!
