Codexter's Archives

Alright, I'm gonna do a massive codex plug with credit given to TORHead:

Commando

Trained in superior tactics and weaponry, Commandos charge onto the battlefield with massive assault cannons, overwhelming their enemies with brute firepower. Whether taking out a bunker or driving back an Imperial charge with a hail of concussive bolts, the Commando�s high-powered hardware dominates the scene, laying waste to all who fall within its range.

All Commandos learn to use powerful assault cannons, and can opt to learn the skills of a Combat Medic, using proven Republic medical training to heal and protect allies; Gunnery, utilizing a variety of assault cannon loadouts to burn, crush and incapacitate enemies; and Tactics, specializing in explosives and weapons that penetrate a target's armor.

Gunslinger

Master of the trick shot, the first to dive for cover and able to take advantage of every opportunity, the Gunslinger and his dual blasters are the perfect team. There's a right target for ending every disagreement, and the Gunslinger knows enemy vulnerabilities like the inside of his ship.

All Gunslingers learn how to fire two blasters at once, specializing in long-range combat and methods to keep enemies at a distance. Gunslingers can also opt to learn the skills of the Saboteur, using grenades and demolitions technology that cause fire damage and ignore enemy armor; the Sharpshooter, shooting from cover and focusing on precise, high-damage attacks; and Dirty Fighting, crippling and bleeding opponents using underhanded tactics.

Guardian

A wall between the Republic and its enemies, the Jedi 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 also inspire allies to amazing feats, making them invaluable for conflicts of any size.

All Jedi Guardians learn to move in heavy armor and build extra energy to perform spectacular feats. Guardians can opt to learn Vigilance, developing attacks that power through weaker opponents with ease and concentrating on fewer strikes that hit harder; Defense, redirecting enemies' attacks against the Guardian's allies toward the Guardian's sturdy self; and Focus, specializing in advanced Force techniques to increase the potency of lightsaber attacks and perform telekinetic feats to hamper opponents.

Sage

The mysteries of the Force are endless. A Jedi Sage, devoted to uncovering its esoteric secrets, knows this better than anyone. Sages are famed for their wisdom and empathy as much as for their powerful healing and defensive skills. In troubled times, a Sage brings together the insight of the past with raw power to change the flow of galactic events.

All Jedi Sages embrace the teachings of the Force and can opt to learn the art of the Seer, healing wounded allies and protecting them from harm--restoring their life force and literally pulling them out of danger; Telekinetics, distorting reality and moving massive waves of energy that tear apart a Sage's enemies; and Balance, deploying the power of the Force to enhance lightsaber techniques and debilitate foes in combat.

Sentinel

Control and focus are the hallmarks of the Jedi Sentinel. Through years of training, Sentinels learn the art of using two lightsabers in tandem to create an intricate web of damage almost impossible to evade. By manipulating the Force, Sentinels can see holes in the enemy's defense, potential flaws in their own techniques and how best to plan for both.

All Jedi Sentinels can wield two lightsabers in combat, using speed and precision to strike enemies where they are weakest. Sentinels can opt to learn the ways of a Watchman, becoming a peerless lightsaber combatant and using the Juyo form to debilitate foes; Combat, taking advantage of the Sentinel's lighter armor and using the agile Ataru form to perform incredibly swift strikes; and Focus, specializing in advanced Force techniques to increase the potency of lightsaber attacks and perform telekinetic feats to hamper opponents.

Shadow

A Shadow serves the Jedi Order by being a silent observer and, when action is necessary, a subtle hand. Shadows go unseen, employing Force techniques that cloud enemy minds to slip into hostile territory and, when necessary, striking enemies down with deadly efficiency. Shadows embrace the synergy between lightsaber and Force combat.

All Jedi Shadows use the Force to conceal themselves and move invisibly behind enemy lines, as well as learn to use double-bladed lightsabers in either an offensive or defensive capacity. Shadows can also opt to learn Infiltration, becoming masters of stealth and ambush who forgo the head-on attack for the vulnerable flank; Kinetic Combat, utilizing a double-bladed lightsaber as either an acrobatic weapon or a bulwark of defense; and Balance, deploying the power of the Force to enhance lightsaber techniques and debilitate foes in combat.

Scoundrel

The Scoundrel doesn't have time for polite and doesn't do fair fight. In addition to a trusty blaster, the Scoundrel packs a stealth belt, a scattergun and a medpac--everything you need to get in, knock the enemy for a loop and get out alive.

All Scoundrels learn how to move stealthily--sneaking past or surprising enemies--and various close-quarters fighting techniques that do damage at short range and prevent an enemy from fleeing. Scoundrels can also opt to learn the skills of the Scrapper, using scatterguns to deal even more damage close-up; the Sawbones, applying medicine and damage prevention techniques to heal and protect allies; and Dirty Fighting, crippling and bleeding opponents using underhanded tactics.

Sniper

Focused on long-range tactics and eliminating sensitive targets, Snipers are the most elite and professional marksmen in the galaxy. After extensive training, the Sniper learns to target enemies' vulnerabilities and strike at the perfect moment to turn the tide of battle.

All Snipers learn how to use deadly sniper rifles and specialize in long-range combat, keeping their enemies at a distance. Snipers can also opt to learn the skills of Engineering, using probes and other gadgets to deal additional damage; Marksmanship, shooting from cover and focusing on precise, high-damage attacks; and Lethality, utilizing deadly toxins to poison their enemies.

Vanguard

Unstoppable and utterly fearless, Vanguards wade into battle wearing advanced heavy armor. They are the first and best line of defense in the Republic military, ignoring personal risk and stepping into the line of fire to divert danger from allies and innocents. Though their tactical role is inherently dangerous, Specialists have an uncanny survivability due to their expert defensive tactics and technology.

All Vanguards learn to use personal shield generators and can opt to acquire the skills of an Assault Specialist, relying on shield power surges and energy blade attacks to do damage at short range and prevent an enemy from fleeing; the skills of a Shield Specialist, further training in advanced armor and defenses in order to absorb damage and protect allies; and Tactics, specializing in explosives and weapons that penetrate a target's armor.
