BioWare announced the Bounty Hunter as the first playable class in
target="_blank"> style="font-style: italic;">Star Wars: The Old
there was a great commotion in the Force, as if hundreds of thousands
of Star Wars fans breathed a sigh of relief. With one of the most
talked about classes finally confirmed, speculation remains at an all
time high as to which classes will be revealed next, though many
suspect signs of a Smuggler class are already written on the wall. In
the newest episode of href="http://www.tentonhammer.com/features/final-frontier"

Reuben “Sardu” Waters takes a closer look at the
potential class lineup in TOR based on the most recent announcements
Yet BioWare has
specific information about the game that, depending on perspective,
weaves a very different MMO tapestry than the industry has previously
seen. Somewhere between the strong emphasis on personal stories and the
usage of companion NPCs, I’d find it hard to believe that
class roles will boil down to neat little spreadsheet equations. You
know, the whole thing where Boss X has Y hitpoints and does Z damage,
so defeating it necessarily requires you have one Trained Baboon
wielding a +2 Attack Kazoo of Doom, 2 healers and a Slave Leia
cosplayer in your party.
