Dip, have you noticed if either the Jedi Sage Consular or the Smuggler Scoundrel had better overall healing?

i've only done the first flashpoint, but it is designed for lvl ~9 before you select you class. Though a healer in there is nice. But other then that I've only done group quests, which there is a fair amount of, however if you have a healer it's face roll fun times. Haven't tried healing, going to level a healer next, and stop with SW story. In fact I'll go do that now.

Healing Ben in PvP is a face-rolling task in and of itself.

I'm going to be a tank in some fashion. I will never be the guy who starts a guild and isn't a tank. So basically I'm waiting to see wtf everyone else is doing so I can fill a gap.

I knew you were going to be a tank of some sort, I was just wondering if you had figured out which class you were going to play yet. Im basically doing the same, waiting to see what people are going to do so I can fill the gap. Ie, would want to try and avoid both of us becoming troopers (and then specing into different advanced classes obviously) Though as far as the healing is concerned, they havent revealed to much about what type of heals each class will have, HoT's and whatnot.

Don't know if you guys saw any gameplay yet, but I found this on Kotaku earlier.

Looks good. It's tempting to just build my computer now so I can play the beta...but waiting will equate to a better rig.

Here's a video of one their PvP battlegrounds. The announcers commentary is funny as he tries to help direct them to where they should go.

Guy sounds like me in a BG. "Ohh looks like we're all going right then. Well we'll get that flag and then they WILL FUCKING TAKE EVERY OTHER ONE."

and no I didn't get into beta yet but the beta weekends thing is coming very soon.

Yeah, might be sometime in the next 2 weeks or so. Also here's a link to stuff they've released at Gamescom in Germany.

Hutball gameplay, seems like it will be an interesting warzone/battleground.

Damn, less than 24 hours removed from the test weekend and I'm already suffering withdrawal from not playing. Incidentally, I think I've narrowed it down to Smuggler/Gunslinger or Trooper/Commando as my class choice - obviously aiming for a dps role.

Well then it's basically down to whether or not you want to use cover.

All fine good lads.

Keep in mind that Gunslinger/Sniper is not for the feint of heart.

You really have to plan out your tactics. Stay with a group and camp far back.
It does suck sometimes when a player is trying to flank you and you have to reset your position to be effective in the slightest.
90% of your skills are only usable while in cover. In HuttaBall it's one of the most annoying classes to play because of the mass amount of LoS, bridges and falls.

While they have great initial burst, the sustained damage is not amazing and survivability is tough.
When you unlock all the skills at higher levels it's pretty fun to see the big numbers, but be prepared for a tough class to play in pvp.

If you're looking for pve, it's pretty fun.

good to know about the gunslinger spec. During the test weekend I was a scoundrel (which is what I planned on doing in the first place) and had a good time being dps/off heals

After trying out the beta I'm pretty certain I'll be rolling a Jedi Knight, and specing Sentinel for the deeps. Hope there aren't too many of these already...

People are telling me different stuff every other day on what they are going to play, there is going to be a final poll to get the best idea on what everyone is playing so I can balance accordingly.

I assume after these beta weekends everyone is going to have a better idea now on what class they are sticking with.
