I've never cared much for being a tank. I much prefer sneak attacks and assassinations and DPS (they are juts funner). On ESO I am pretty much my groups tank, but I'm also a Nightblade (assassin), so I've got both on there.

That's one of the things I like about being a Smuggler. One of the advanced classes (Scoundrel, I think) gets a stealth ability. So much fun sneaking up behind enemies and shooting them in the back with a scatter gun. Cheesy

Ok Guys, after hours of downloading and several unix script lines, SWTOR can be launched on my fruit computer ... and it seams to work Tongue

I will start on a European French server in the beginning to learn the gameplay as a noob but maybe one day, I will come to an American one to meet you Tongue

I want to start with a Republican Commando (I read that it can make a good healer or a good tank) ... Do you have any advices?


For the Trooper class I preferred Commando rather than Vanguard.  The assault cannon is so much more fun.  

As Commando you can be DPS or Healer.  Vanguards can be DPS or Tank.

Trooper is a great character class. Personally, I've always been partial to Vanguards, that's the tank one. Aric Jorgan, your first companion, is a Commando, so his abilities compliment yours. Also, you can set him to heal, because you can do that with all companions now. Once upon a time, each had different abilities. Anyway, that's my take on the Vanguard or Commando. Both are really nice, but I like Vanguard just a little more.

Vanguard is interesting too Tongue (and to be honest, I did not know about the first companion Tongue )

Your first companion is a Trooper, but they changed him around and I believe he's now a sniper, doesn't use a cannon anymore.  Also, all companions basically have the same 5-6 abilities now, so none of them really "compliment" you.  All companions can be DPS, Heals, or Tank, so it's up to whatever you need.  The biggest difference now is if a companion is melee or ranged.

Heh, I'm definitely not knocking your choice of Commando. It's a great class. Big guns and, as you said, can be a healer or DPS. I don't think you can tank with Commando, but it's been a while and I could be wrong. (or they could have changed it)

Yeah, I jumped you ahead a bit there. Sorry about that. The way it used to work is that you'd actually pick your advanced class at level 10. That gave you some time to get a feel for things. Changing it to happening much earlier is both an advantage and a disadvantage.

No no, no problem, everything is OK Wink

Maybe I am wrong about commando as I can not find any other sources that say commando is a good tank Wink

Maybe I am wrong but if I have to start solo, a tank is better than a DPS ...

You now pick your advanced class at the start when you make your character.  Again, Commando is DPS/Heals and Vanguard is DPS/Tank.  Depends on the skill specialization you pick.  Honestly, don't worry about needing to be a tank at the start.  Things die rather easily in the beginning.  Think about the role you are going to want to be later on.  Troopers are tough since they are a heavy armor class.

Oh, too late I guess to help.  Sorry.  Hope you have fun with that though.

Great stuff. Grin You'll level up super fast in the beginning, as I'm sure you've already noticed.

Also, all companions basically have the same 5-6 abilities now, so none of them really "compliment" you.  All companions can be DPS, Heals, or Tank, so it's up to whatever you need.  The biggest difference now is if a companion is melee or ranged.

Ah, that's right. It's a shame, Aric used to be a really cool Commando. Since they nerfed leveling and made the companions more generic, I usually have mine set to "passive" unless I'm fighting a really tough enemy and losing. Wink

Thanks a lot for these advices Wink

I think I will play several characters to the lvl10 to chose my main ... So your help (as well as SFD79) will be not lost Wink

Point for all!!

Bounty Hunter is loads of fun. Similar skills and armor to a Trooper, but with pistols and no attachment to the government, like a Smuggler. I always liked the one with 2 guns, don't remember what it's called.

For Smuggler the two pistols is Gunslinger.  For Bounty Hunter it's Mercenary.  Powertech is the other spec for BH.  Merc is DPS or Heals, PT is DPS or Tank.

That's the one I was thinking of, thanks. I like that class. Two guns and heals. Smiley

As I said though both can be DPS, and I think Merc is better at DPS than Powertech.  Plus two pistols is more fun than just one.

The skill trees aren't what they used to be.  Now it's pretty linear as you level up.  There are some extra perk points you pick up along the way that allow you to choose some things, and I just pick the ones that seem to make the most sense with my damage abilities or reducing cooldowns on stuff I use a lot.

If you want a guide, Dulfy is a good place.  Here are a couple links.

Check out both links and see which Advanced Class and which of the 3 specs you have is listed and which has the most current guide.

Well, I was going to maybe play some tonight, but the launcher keeps giving me an "Unspecified Error" message when it's trying to initialize the update. Roll Eyes I don't know what's wrong with it, but I may have to reinstall the game. That's going to take a while.
