In Star Wars: The Old Republic, players are able to pick sides and battle in the war between the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire. Thousands of years before Darth Vader came to power, players can fight for control of the galaxy and everything in it. Cooperative and competitive MMO battles will test the abilities of both the light and dark sides of the Force as they fight for supremacy.
The SWTOR Assassin Guide details one of the eight class options available to players in Star Wars: The Old Republic. Details of the Assassin class reveal that they have lightsabers with gems in order to display their connection to a more mystical side of the Force. Their elaborate wardrobes are low on armor, causing others to underestimate the Assassin and thus reveal their weaknesses.
The Assassin is initially classified as just an advanced Inquisitor but as the player gets deeper into the SWTOR world, the differences become apparent. Like the Inquisitor however, the Assassin has Force Lightning abilities that make it part of the damage-dealing caster class. The Assassin is also in control of a double-sided lightsaber and can drain power from their enemies.
Unlike the Inquisitor, the Assassin can strike its enemies while remaining soundly in the shadows, making it a fearsome warrior. Their strategies are just as important as the tip of their blades and the use of their lightsabers as they evade detection and wreak havoc on the Galactic Republic’s attempts at peace. They can also evade damage from others and shield themselves from harm.
