The Sith Inquisition: A Basic Introduction

“The dark side of the force is a pathway to abilities some would consider to be… Unnatural.”

The Sith Inquisitor is the 4th announced playable Sith faction class rounding out all of the 8 in total that will be playable at launch. The Sith Inquisitor is a counterpart to the Jedi Consular class meaning we will play a great deal of support. Heals, CC, Buffs/Debuffs are all likely.

Specialization will be divided between Ranged Combat/Support (Palpatine inspired) and Acrobatic melee. (Darth Maul inspired) Although no specific information on specializations has been released, we can all hope that we don’t get into a WoW spec system where you will see guilds spamming “Active Guild LF Raiding SI, no more melee plz!” Cookie cutter specs are never fun.

The Holonet indicates that Inquisitors favor light armor like decorative robes to suit their political aspirations, as opposed to their Sith Warrior buddies who are more likely to wear more protection.

Weapon wise most of the promotional SI pictures depict using a double-bladed while there are some that show using a single blade. There’s no evidence of Bioware locking any Jedi class into using any style saber specifically yet but that could very well change once specialization details are released.

Overall the Sith Inquisitor looks like a beautiful alternative to the Sith Warrior. Lots of flashing lightning based attacks, tons of crowd control and group support. However, this class will not be for everyone.

Holonet entry for the Sith Inquisitor can be found here. Some pretty videos and nice RP themed descriptions.
