BioWare’s updated The Old Republic blog detailing the awesome looking Trooper class and proclaiming that if it’s firepower you want, then the Trooper class will be the one for you.
The Trooper has evolved over time since that first playtest, but at the core he remains the same: a dedicated soldier who believes in military precision, tactical superiority and above all, a whole lot of firepower. With his impressive arsenal of assault rifles and grenades, the Trooper is the best ranged damage dealer the Republic has to offer.
That’s not all the Trooper is about, though. He’s got the ability to adjust his combat capabilities to meet different challenges. He’s got an array of morale-themed party buffs designed to strengthen himself and his party. He’s got just enough control to be able to maintain range and keep the fight on his own terms.
But really, what’s the Trooper about? A simple philosophy: “Happiness is a warm gun.”
