The Academy, Ep 4 – “Which Class Should I Play?”

We told you about this upcoming episode of The Academy and it’s a good one, especially for new players (the intended audience). This one is all about what class you should play. So if you’re new to the game, or know someone who is, this is a great video to watch before picking your class. The real bottom line is that every class is unique and good in its own way, so there really are no right and wrong choices. However, the class you choose when you’re just starting out may affect how you appreciate the game and if you want to stick with it long term.

Different people have different player styles. What works for one person may not work for another.  If you try one class and you’re just not feeling it, it’s easy to just make a new character. We agree with Swtorista that you should try each class at least once (you never know what you might like) and if you enjoy the game, it allows you to fully experience all of the different story arcs. But some players prefer to pick one and just do everything available in the game with that one class and that’s okay, too.

In this video, Swtorista gives a good overview of the different classes on both faction sides, explains how they work and a little about the playstyle of each class. This will give new players a good idea of what each class will be like to help them better choose which one they want to start with.

This is the fourth video in the series, as part of being a guest on Ootinicast’s weekly podcast. “Which class should I play? What are classes, and advanced classes?”

In the next episode, they’ll be talking about companions and how to get the most out of them. Stay tuned!
