Bounty Hunter / Trooper Class Changes in SWTOR KOTET

Here are the Class Changes in KOTET for the Bounty Hunter / Trooper Classes: Along with the 5 new levels coming in Eternal Throne each of the Classes are receiving changes including new abilities, new utilities, and more. For this post, let’s talk about the Bounty Hunter and Republic Trooper. This is just a sampling of the changes that are coming with Eternal Throne and are subject to change. Bounty Hunter Powertech Knights of the Fallen Empire left Powertechs in a good position as one of the most well-rounded classes in the game. With Knights of the Eternal Throne, we wanted to push the Powertech fantasy in a way that really made it feel unique and different from the Mercenary. Here are some of the changes we have made: Deadly Onslaught: New ability exclusive to Powertechs, replaces Death from Above which is now exclusive for Mercenaries. Searing Wave: New ability exclusive…

SWTOR 4.0 Class Changes: Bounty Hunter and Trooper (Video Overviews by Vulkk)

In the following 2 videos you can see and hear the details about the recent changes Bioware announced today for the Bounty Hunter and Trooper Classes in Knights of the Fallen Empire, the next Digital Expansion of SWTOR. Narrated and recorded by Vulkk. In a nutshell, players receive 1 new ability at lvl 61, reshuffle of active and passive abilities gained through leveling with no change of their effects (for now) and 3 new Utilities, 1 for each tier. Bioware’s short message and reasoning for these changes: Whether you prefer bullets, missiles, or just plain fire, Bounty Hunters and Troopers have something for you! In Game Update 4.0, we wanted to give all Powertechs/Vanguards a quick way to jump into the thick of combat or instantly catch back up to a fleeing target. To accomplish this, we made Jet Charge/Storm baseline for all Powertechs/Vanguards. Getting up in the enemy’s face isn’t something…

TOR TV: Republic Trooper Tribute – Burn it Down

This video might contain *Spoilers* Do not watch if you don’t want spoilers!!! This video is a few month old now, but it is definitely still worth a watch.     The video is uploaded to youtube by SaiTorrsVideos and  piece together most of the trooper  cut-scenes from the storyline’s act II and act III. Mix that with Linkin park and you got a good time 🙂 I have a level 50 trooper and I personally enjoyed the story. Trooper story perfectly nails the life of a soldier and the hard choices one is forced to make. Troopers get some pretty hard ones during the 3 Chapters. At times it took me over an hour just to make a decision; that’s how much I was into the story. Join the forum discussion on this post

SWTOR Trooper Vanguard PVP Build To Help You In Warzones!

SWTOR Trooper Vanguard PVP Build

Today we have another build from www.swtorsavior.com and this will probably be one of the last ones until we update them all for the 1.2 patch. This build is for the Trooper Vanguard and this actual class makes for a good Tank/DPS player on the warzone. The most effective way to play is to lure enemies to attack you taking the attention from the healers and the DPS and then ideally the heavy hitters will finish them off. So for all intents and purposes this class makes a good support class on the warzones. If you have no idea how your build should look then here is a level 10-50 build you can use: SWTOR Trooper Vanguard PVP Build: A couple of things to note with this build and how to use it: You should use Storm to closer the distance between you and the enemy and then follow it with…
