We love to find you cool SWTOR tips and tools and we recently stumbled upon a nifty little tool for someone looking to switch factions in SWTOR. As you know, each class has a mirror class and while the abilities do the same thing, they are not called the same thing. So when you’re reading one of the many guides that are available out there, you might find you get thrown off because you’re not sure what the acronyms mean or how that translates to the mirror class that you’re used to playing.
Someone with the same problem had made a nifty tool that allows you to copy/paste blocks of text (say, from a guide) and get it translated to its mirror class so you instantly increase your knowledge of the class. It gives you a boost on the learning curve and gets you back in the game on your new class in no time at all.
The SWTOR Mirror Skill Translator is what we’re talking about.
This tool is easy to use and even includes corresponding skill tooltips for your reference. It’s basically just a method of “search” and “replace” functions but the translator does all the hard work for you, simplifying the process.
How To Use
- Input the text you would like to “translate” into the Input textarea box. The text can include HTML tags.
- Click on the name of the advanced class that you’re translating from (i.e. the class whose skills are named in the input text), so that the tool knows for which class skills to search.
- Click the now-active Convert button.
