Guess Who's Got the Fastest Ship in the Sector?

I normally don't post about SWTOR, but today's release of the cinematic trailer "RETURN" has me very excited. An excellent profile of a Gunslinger (Smuggler advanced class) in action. The slo-mo beginning at 1:50 is made of pure awesome. In addition, the video further develops the story of Darth Malgus and the Jedi Satele. Is it just me, or have the trailers been presented in reverse chronological order, much as the Timeline segments on SWTOR.com have been?

This video has helped solidify my interest in the Gunslinger class, like they dropped Mal Reynolds into the Star Wars universe. Still not sure if it will be my Main, that will depend on DGF and her faction preference. Oops, she just told me she wants to be a bounty hunter. ("We don't need their scum.") So it looks like either an imperial agent or a Sith Inquisitor for our "SO leveling contract." I'm not really interested in a Sith Warrior, though I will probably try one as an alt. Heck, maybe we'll dual run as Bounty Hunters. I wonder how the individual class storylines fit in with duos, like MMOGC and her husband, and DGF and I, trying to play together.

So: Gunslinger for my Solo Main, no pun intended.

  1. The Smuggler absolutely stole the show. I liked his bit even better than the force users duking it out with lightsabers. They could have gone with the Han Solo scoundrel advanced class, but I'm glad they went with the gunslinger instead.

    And yep, they went backwards. This is the order along with the info on the setting: http://www.swtor.com/info/story/setting

    You can always do what I'm planning. I'm most likely going to play BH on my own, and going Republic with Mr. GC. With luck, we might experience the other class's story vicariously while doing quests with our SOs!
