Welcome to From the High Ground, where we talk official Jedi Knight Business.
There are few more iconic characters in pop culture than the Jedi. A superhero of sorts with a sweet glowing sword (lightsaber), magic powers (the force), deflecting any laser fire that might come his way, fearlessly wading into any battle, with all confidence he will not be defeated…. However in SWTOR, this is not the Jedi Knight you will be playing.
As more and more video footage that comes out, I find the Jedi is not looking like the all powerful superhero I had hoped to play. This is not a movie or a single player RPG where such a larger than life character can exist and single-highhandedly save the universe. No SWTOR is a Massively Multilayer Online Role Playing Game. Where lots of players are playing lots of classes and they will not sit idly by and allow such a class to exist. There is a four letter word that exists in the MMORPG universe and SWTOR is not oblivious to it, Balance.
