inquisitor: sorcerer playstyle

curious what the playstyle is of this class specifically in regard to their light saber.  theyre described as a ranged class so is

the saber a stat stick or decoration?  or do they use their single blade during combat?

    Most of your combat will be ranged stuff, including stuns and other things to keep people at bay.  However you do have a single light saber and skills that you can use in melee combat as well as a knockback.  I doubt the damage you will put out in melee combat would come anywhere near what a melee DD would do.

    It is used in many of the animation of your abilties and definetly ups your coolness factor but at higher level you will not actualy use it much.  However as you sated it is a huge stat dump being that it has 4 slots for upgrades (more stats), but no you wont be "using" it directly to much as a caster unless you went for more of a battlemage style which is possible but not recomeneded from what I have tested / seen the sorc is quite a powerful dps caster and or healer.

    No you can't change your AC once you pick it, at least no option is available right now, they did mention being able to change it once upon a time but it seems they decided against it

    nope

     

    I pwned as a sorc in warzones! I would generally be up above people throwing lightning and heals. whenever I was in melee combat it was when they were ontop of me and spell knockbacks were making it hard to do my force powers.

    Nah they aren't gonna allow AC changes, but they are talking about possible dual specs for talents, but who knows.

    unsuspecting enemies.  though id really like to play a healer or at least have the option to.  oh well

     

    warrior may actally be more fitting for me.  thanks again all

    I am pretty sure they are going to allow AC respecing to a degree.

    We do want your AC choice to matter, but we also don't want to punish simple mistakes. So, the current design is that changing your advanced class initially is cheap (e.g. changing it right at level 10 is almost free). 



    As you gain levels, the price increases dramatically, and quickly. At level 20, it might just be out of reach for almost everyone. The exact pricing curve is still being tweaked based on testing, of course. 



    We definitely know this is a controversial topic in the community, but we feel that this solution gives us the best of both worlds.



    Short: We allow for mistakes and short term buyer's remorse, but don't realistically allow for changing your advanced class like pants.

    My first toon will also be Sith Sorcerer and I'll be going Lightning. If I decide to swtich at the last possible second, I'll go Bounty Hunter.

    well, if you don't mind a non-force user you also have the option to go for a BH or an operative.  I can say I've been playing a healing Sorc and it is fun.

    As a healer, sometimes it is emminent to save power, so i was expecting that sorcereres would be ding damage in groups using some kind of standard attack at minimal power cost, to still do some damage while saving power for healing or major crowd controll.
