BioWare confirms advanced Jedi Knight classes in TOR

[flash width="540" height="337"]http:/[/flash]

Followers of the upcoming Star Wars: The Old Republic have been patiently awaiting the announcement of advanced character classes in the game. In BioWare’s most recent Fan Friday update, the Jedi Knight specializations Guardian and Sentinel were revealed – titles which should be familiar to anyone who’s played a game in the Knights of the Old Republic series.

The first class, Guardian, is designed for players who like to don heavy armor and get up close and personal with their enemies while using a single lightsaber. Guardians use their abilities to taunt and distract opponents, while simultaneously inspiring allies to perform amazing feats.

Sentinels, on the other hand, prefer to wield two sabers in unison to maximize their damage potential. They seek out weaknesses in their enemies’ defenses and use the force to enhance their significant observational abilities. 

BioWare also detailed the Jedi Knight’s sinister rival, the Sith Warrior, a few weeks ago. Check out the full specialization descriptions below. 

Jedi Guardian

A wall between the good people of the Republic and their enemies, the Guardian stands firm in the face of overwhelming odds and dares opponents to attack. Perfect concentration and use of the Force allows smooth movement even in heavy armor–making the Guardian a hard target to take down. Leaders on and off the battlefield, Guardians are known for inspiring allies to amazing feats, making them invaluable for conflicts of any size. 

Jedi Sentinel

Control and focus are the hallmarks of the Sentinel. Through years of training the Sentinel learns the art of using two Lightsabers simultaneously to create an intricate web of damage that is almost impossible to evade. Manipulating the Force, the Sentinel can see holes in the enemy defense, potential flaws in their own technique and how best to plan for both. 

Sith Juggernaut

Sith who train in the stalwart arts of the Juggernaut boast unrivaled stamina in battle. Through diligence and clarity, the Juggernaut shapes the Force to his will to become nearly invulnerable. Damage that would destroy others is shrugged off, and futility fills the Juggernaut’s foes with doubt and despair. Protecting their allies and punishing their adversaries, they charge into the thick of any fray, and take the brunt of the assault and are even able to drain the energy of their enemies to further strengthen their resolve.

Sith Marauder

Wielding two sabers and unmatched aggression, Sith trained as Marauders slice through enemy ranks, dealing death with merciless efficiency. Able to intuit precisely how to attack in order to maximize every strike, their adversaries become victims in the blink of an eye. Whether annihilating a squad of Republic troops or cutting down a single Jedi, the Marauder sees and exploits every weakness to exact the greatest toll. Never hesitating, never faltering, there is no swifter bringer of pain and damage in the galaxy.
