Jedi Sentinel- Combat-Load Out A
It seems to be about as well as the one I am used to. Forgive the chart but that is the way I compare the abilities.
Note: I am using the Descent of the Fearless Gear and I also went and upgraded the gear to 306. Yes, I had to start a chapter, but it was worth it to see how it stacks against my gear on live. As stated before, I only have 2 characters (out of 14) that is not in set gear or 306 in live so an accurate testing I needed to upgrade. (You should have this gear in 306 and easier for people to upgrade than having to accept a chapter and then going to Odesson)
Please answer the following questions:

• What abilities make the Sentinel unique to you?
One of the abilities that I have always loved is the twin saber throw and thankfully it is still there so I will give you a +100 on that. (This is the reason I play sentinel and the combat one)
• Do these ability paths feel effective against enemies?
• I did some chapters and various other items that I normally do, and it really didn’t seem like a problem. In some ways it seem that it worked better.
• If you have feedback on the different disciplines and loadouts, please note your feedback accordingly so we can track it.

Note:
Some abilities you must choose from:

Level 20 Choices:
Slash
Blade Barrage
Transcendence

Level 35 choices:
Swiftness
Quickness
Force Clarity


Level 70 Choices:
Blade Blitz
Guarded by the Force
Force Camouflage


For my playstyle on the abilities I need to choose from (since I refuse to do pvp so that is not a factor for me and therefore it does not have anything to do with my playstyle)

Level 20:
Blade Barrage
Transcendence

I would choose Blade Barrage over Transcendence but if Transcendence could be added in without having to choose from one of the others that would be great.

Level 35
Swiftness
Quickness
Force Clarity

Not sure about the other two but Force Clarity might be the one I choose on live even though I used Loadout A this time and I used quickness as there wasn't a choice right now. It seemed to be okay.

Level 70 Choices:
Blade Blitz
Guarded by the Force
Force Camouflage

For my choice I am not sure which I would use the most: Blade Blitz or Force Camouflage. I have rarely used Guarded by the Force and Force Camouflage I like at time to by pass some mods but as that is really not that big of a deal to me, I would most likely chose Blade Blitz.

hi i thought it would be different than what it was. i do know what you are trying to make it simple but they are jedi it is like learning something that u spend years learning then you lose it but bad memory i wish it could a point system allowing you chose abilities but not the case. i find it too simple it is more like slash and grab game now

Hi all,

If you have feedback to leave about the Jedi Sentinel, please leave it in the feedback thread. It's easier for us to track, log, and consolidate for the rest of the team to review. If there are multiple threads and/or various places where feedback about the Sentinel or Guardian are posted and they live outside the intended threads, that feedback could potentially get lost. Please keep info as consolidated as possible.

Thanks!

Greetings all, I'm saddened to see what is going on, as a solo player that has played each class, each advanced class, and the different trees. This appears to be nothing more Than an attempt to redo NGE. It killed SWG and already after playing am at a loss seems from my point of view that everything is nurffed to heck.
Oh ever jumping form to 75 does not help, I get my joy out of building and learning the specs, bosses and trees. Not building from the ground up really does not help. But anyways I gave it a try. and I will continue to try but if this is a repeat of swg. I am gone. No joy in the game after that.
Would have preferred a new few new races or at least some work on the interpersonal stories of the companion characters
Have done both the A and B side and find them both lacking and not up to par with the standing game am sorry to say.

Is the healing ability from burning for Watchman going to be there?
I play Watchman because of that although I like Combat more.

Also, having the option to take Intercessor will be nice.
I do not know other people, but having 2 leaps is must utility for me.
