I've recently become interested in playing this game, I love the character interaction part of the game and being able to go down the light or dark side. Now I'm just wondering to myself what class I should roll as a main? Being an Ex-WoW player myself I historically always went for ranged damage dealers since they tend to be easier. If I went for a range class then the Advanced classes that I'm most interested in are Jedi Sage and Commando, choosing between the two is a bit tricky, while Sage is fragile but has great crowd control I believe and a lightsaber, Commando on the other hand has better Armor, a massive gun and packs with explosives.
However for some reason I could go for melee instead, it's not something I played much even in my WoW days which gives more reason to get into it but I still have my doubts because I was never good with them in WoW's PvP because you always have to think fast and you normally have a view disadvantaged, and considering ToR is very similar to WoW then it's likely to be the same. If I went melee damage dealer then I'm kinda interested in Jedi Sentinel or Jedi Shadow, two lightsabers are better than one. Again it's tricky, Sentinel has better armor and should be able to deal damage as quick as possible but Shadow can stealth and is more of a force user.
Chances are most of you will probably say go for the playstyle you like most, range would probably be more favorable for me but again it's still down to two different classes.
