So today we Inquisitors received a nice little dedicated Friday Feature. It is a developer blog that manages to be specific to just the Sith Inquisitor class while not revealing a whole lot of new information. There is something worth pointing out however.
One of the hottest forum topics is the whole Ranged/Support spec = Palps vs Acrobatic Melee = Maul issue. Bioware kind of pigeonholed themselves with these iconic descriptions, limiting your average SWTOR follower’s imagination to see what the classes could potentially become.
People need to start thinking outside of the box and realize that the whole Palps/Maul thing is just the inspiration for the specs, not the cookie cutter mold we are all going to be stuck in.
There’s a great quote from today’s feature about it:
I could tell you that the Sith Inquisitor is the Emperor Palpatine to the Sith Warrior’s Darth Vader, but that sells it short. The archetype is just inspiration. It’s not the destination, or the road we take to get there, but the guide. The Sith Inquisitor is Raistlin. The Sith Inquisitor is Lucifer. The Sith Inquisitor is Julius Caesar. The Sith Inquisitor is what you make him.
The article then goes on to compare a few key differences between the Inquisitor and Warrior story wise. This justifies their decision for the two separate Sith classes versus just lumping it all into one storyline. There will be two very different and dynamic experiences.
There is a couple recycled images that we have had since the class was announced, so nothing new on the visual front. The article is still worth a read however. You can check it out here.
Okay time for more ME2…
