Try Not To Fall Asleep During The Old Republic’s Jedi Consular Video

Known for their epic feats of stoicism and understanding, the Jedi Consular class in Star Wars: The Old Republic is sure to have even the most caffeinated MMO players waking up in a puddle of drool with their keyboard imprinted on their foreheads.

I’m sure it’s not as bad as it looks. Not all MMO character classes can be flashy and exciting. It’s not like facilitating a treaty between rival factions is something you can add flashing lights to and slip onto an action bar.

Well, unless you’re an Anarchy Online Bureaucrat, the official class for players that get excited over armour that resembles a business suit. I played one of those ages ago, and while my powers weren’t too exciting, I felt like a complete pimp while pulling them off.

Perhaps that’s how playing the Jedi Consular feels. Who feels like breaking beta NDA? I’d check for myself, but alas, no beta for me.

  • Also factor in that consular is the beginning class. At 10 then can change to either Jedi Shadow, which is a combat class or Jedi Sage, which is more of a healing class. So the fact that what you just watched was low level, it does not look so bad at all.

  • Consular turns into Shadow (rogue) or Sage (mage or heals). I wish they would show a progression trailer for the sith inquisitor.

  • Sorry, what Kotaku?

    I haven’t seen much SOTOR but that video looked pretty exciting to me. You have to have some perspective, given that this is an MMO and not force unleashed.

  • “It’s not like facilitating a treaty between rival factions is something you can add flashing lights to and slip onto an action bar.”

    Hey, negotiation is, uh, fun πŸ˜€

  • @ Supreme
    Sage can dps or heal, shadow can dps or tank

    I had the complete opposite reaction, first this guy has a sick beard secondly the music was awesome and thirdly the abilities show cased really make me consider playing a JC. Way to report opinion as fact kotaku

  • Why is Kotaku Australia even supporting this game by posting stuff about it?

    It’s not even coming out in this country until 6 months to a year after the U.S and the U.K, if it comes out at all.

    • lol yeah good point

      I’m still getting mine from overseas, have been waiting too long to just let it pass me by, no matter how screwed up the release is πŸ™

  • Another sarcastic article by Mike Fahey, just like the spacemarine one last week. He really needs to stop thinking he is too cool for school.

    The video looked good to me.
