In SWTOR there is something unique about the class system. While there are only four starting classes, players can get a few specializations within class.
Right now there are four total classes and each have two specializations. I will update this SWTOR guide as more are made available and we learn more about the overall strength of each SWTOR class specialization. Here is a list:
The Sith Empire has 6 announced specializations so far:
Juggernaut – This is a specialization of the Sith Warrior class. This is a Dark Jedi with basically a very high HP and mitigation modification. Think of it a bit like a tank. However, combat is rumored to be a bit different in SWTOR so it is hard to say exactly how it will work. Check this SWTOR guide soon for more information.
Marauder – This is the other iteration of the Sith Warrior. It deals high-melee damage instead of having more health. Great DPS class.
Powertech – This is a Bounty Hunter specialization with “heavy armor”. I can only imagine this class will be harder to kill and be able to take more direct hits but have less firepower than the other specialization, Mercenary.
Mercenary – As stated above, the Mercenary is an offensive, ranged specialization of the bounty hunter. This is sure to be a popular class. Gameplay also makes it seem to be one of the coolest classes in this SWTOR guide.
Operative – The Operative is one of the few specializations in game which has some sort of healing capability. It belongs to the Imperial Agent class. However, this class is offensive as well and it is not a “healing only” class.
Sniper – The Sniper is the other Imperial Agent specialization and excels in long-range weaponry and assassinations.
The Galactic Empire
The Galatic Empire also has 6 specializations announced which are covered in this SWTOR guide:
Commando - This class uses overt heavy weaponry; think gatlin guns, missile launchers, and flamethrowers. This is a specialization of the Trooper class.
Vanguard – The Vanguard trades in the heavy weaponry for heavy armor and is a specialization of the Trooper class that can take a lot of firepower.
Guardian – The Guardian is the defensive specialization of the Jedi Knight. I am not sure where all these defensive classes will fit into this SWTOR guide, so we will have to wait for more news to know for sure.
Sentinel – The Sentinel is the offensive Jedi Knight specialization and uses two lightsabers at once. The graphics are neat to say th eleast.
Gunslinger – The Gunslinger is a duel-pistol using class which specializations in-your-face offensive power. It is designed to take out single targets.
Scoundrel – Like the Gunslinger, this class is designed to take out single targets and has powerful abilities used to trick its foes.
Class Specialization Conclusion
Each specialization looks interesting and there will be more specializations announced and added to this SWTOR guide before release. I will update accordingly as more information about the game comes out.

In this article, I will be giving a brief SWTOR guide to the different classes available for play. The first thing you should know in this SWTOR guide is that each faction has different classes.
As a result, if you choose to side with the Galactic Republic then you will not have access to the same classes as if you chose the Sith Empire.
You should plan to join a faction according to the class you want to play, although there are some very similar classes between the two factions.
Sith Empire Classes – SWTOR Guide
The Sith Empire has access to four known classes: the Bounty Hunter, Sith Warrior, Sith Inquisitor, and Imperial Agent.
The Bounty Hunter is the same type of character Boba Fett was in the original Star Wars movies. The Bounty Hunter will easily be one of the most popular classes in SWTOR, right after the Jedi Knight. It is also likely to be the most popular class for the Sith.
This class specializes in heavy firepower and can fly around on its jetpacks, making it a very unique class. If you want to blow things up, this is the class for you.
The Sith Warrior is the lightsaber-wielding Jedi class for the Sith. It can specialize into a defensive or offensive melee class. If you want to do melee damage and dual-wield lightsabers, this is the class for you.
The Sith Inquisitor is the only real caster in SWTOR announced so far. This class uses the dark side of the force to cast offensive spells and can also heal via drains. This will be one of the most in-demand classes in the game.
I can easily nominate the Imperial Agent as the least popular class in this SWTOR guide. Almost no one will play this class, given it is like a Bounty Hunter but less cool (seriously). Despite that, its variety of stuns and shields should theoretically make this class a great PvP class.
Galactic Republic Classes – SWTOR Guide
Regardless of the classes listed in this SWTOR guide, you can be sure that most players will side with the Galactic side. This is simply because everyone wants to be a “good” jedi. It is just something we will have to live with.
The Trooper is the middle ground between the Imperial Agent and the Bounty Hunter. It also looks to be a high-powered ranged class like the Bounty Hunter, but has a few tricks up its sleeve including sticky grenades.
If you imagine the non-Jedi classes as ranging on a spectrum from “most damage and least support” on the right to “least damage and most support” on the left, then Smuggler the Smuggler is on the far left.
It sacrifices damage and “tankiness” for surprise abilities and a variety of unusual tactics, like stun grenades and head shots.
Likely to be the most popular class in game. This is the melee Jedi class which uses lightsabers.
The Jedi Mendicant also uses lightsabers, but uses more force abilities and less melee abilities than the knight. It does not cast the same type of spells as the Inquisitor however and retains some melee abilities.
SWTOR Class Guide Conclusion
One thing not covered in this SWTOR guide is that each class will have a “specialization” which will allow it to move into more offensive or defensive/support roles. For example, the Jedi Knight can specialize into a dual-wielding offensive powerhouse or a defensive/tank type role.
Not all of the specializations have been revealed yet so we will have to wait for more developments on this matter.

Hi fellow SWTOR player,
If you are reading this post, no doubt you are a Star Wars The Old Republic fan and have been looking for a great guide to help you level faster, do better in PvP, and reveals the top strategies for clearing flashpoints in record time.
Unfortunately, many of the SWTOR guide offers on out there really do not live up to their promises.In this special SWTOR guide post, I will be revealing the truth about many popular SWTOR guides and showing you exactly what each of the four most popular guides provides
It would be great to find an SWTOR guide which provided you the best leveling path, strategies, and tips. After all, we all want to level up twice as fast as our friends and get easy valor and commendations, all without having to worry about where to go for fast leveling or what talent points to pick for the best build for PvP or dungeons
As a result, we have decided to review every SWTOR guide out on the marketplace today and put together these handy strategy guide review table so you know exactly what to expect out of each strategy guide.

As you can see, no real guide compares to Aeon Guide in terms of the amount of content offered and the amount of value you get for picking up the Aeon pro package. This table may appear biased – you may be thinking how can one guide be so much better than the rest – but it is the complete truth. No other SWTOR guide comes close to Aeon Guide in terms of quality and comprehensiveness.
In Aeon Guide, you actually get information like DPS rotations, flashpoint guides, and PvP builds that you simply do not get in the other guides. This is because Aeon has a team of 4 writers who play each of the main class pairings in the game (Smuggler/Imperial Agent, Sith Warrior/Jedi Knight, etc.) whereas each other guide only has a single writer (or worse yet, a ghostwriter).
Star Wars The Old Republic is just way too big of a game and changes too quickly for any single writer to be able to keep up with every single class in the game. Each player can only handle only realistically play a few classes at once and stay current with each one, which is why Aeon Guide is so much superior to not only all other SWTOR guides out there but also any forum or website where you might typically go for game strategies.
As a result, if you are serious about leveling up quickly, earning lots of credits, climbing the valor ranks and dominating in both PvP and PvE, I strongly recommend that you pick up Aeon Guide right now!
