In 2011, just one year before Disney acquired Lucasfilm, BioWare released a Star Wars MMORPG set in the future of the famous series Knights of the Old Republic. With its unique world and highly immersive storytelling, Star Wars: The Old Republic is a beautiful example of an MMORPG done right and has many of the characteristics people love about the genre, but it’s not just the same. is not.
Due to changes in the battle system, you can freely choose from 8 origin stories when creating a character. They are divided into two factions, the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire. From bizarre gags to engaging plots, there’s a lot to enjoy in these stories. Troopers, agents, smugglers, Jedi, Sith and more, there’s more than enough to experience the legends of the Old Republic.
Update May 26, 2023 by Lucas Olah: Unfortunately, there are no new class stories to discuss. Story expansions are common to all classes, or at least split between Republic and Empire. In any case, the eight main stories are well-established, and it’s worth digging deeper into their individual deeds and companions to re-evaluate their place in the ranks.
If you wanted to be Han Solo but never Harrison Ford, now is your chance. An ideal option for those who like games to become a criminal. The game lets you be a criminal with a heart of gold, a ruthless mob boss, or someone in between.
The first act is perhaps the best, containing the introduction of Corso Riggs and Lisha, excellent antagonists to fight and the smuggler’s best allies. Acts 2 and 3 revolve around doing shady business with the Republic and building your own criminal empire. This is a great concept. Still, aside from one or his two villains, the main villain might be more fun. Regardless, Smugglers use more humor than other classes of stories, and they shine with being funny and silly, giving them a unique charm.
Republic Trooper is the perfect choice for anyone interested in playing with political intrigue and wearing the best-looking armor in the game. Sadly, despite the great story, many of those moments can be forgotten. Aside from the first arc, the antagonist could be a lot more interesting.
Fighting the former Havoc Squad is one of the highlights here, a moral choice and a great addition to the story. You can be a good soldier, you can be a soldier who obeys every command no matter how bad it is, and you can abuse your power. rob people. Still, the end bosses aren’t all that fun. Finally, at least some companions are more fun here. Jogan and Dawn are arguably the best, but quirky Yun is also a fun addition, and you’ll either love or hate Tanno Vik depending on how the character is placed.
6 bounty hunter
Perfect for mayhem, this bounty hunter’s tale explores the underworld of the Star Wars universe. Aside from smugglers, it’s the only class whose story is more independent (although it’s mostly connected to the empire). It also contains a lot of humor and does a better job.
Companions are the best companions and not only are they fun characters in their own right, but they also take a more active role in the story. Mako’s presence makes a big difference to the overall story, Trian is compelling, the romance subplot is good, and characters like Toriek and Gault grow as the game progresses. Moral choices are the norm. You can be a pro or take a bribe. It is necessary to consider how far to act against a portion of the target. It’s the kind of choice you’d expect from a gun rental narrative, but that doesn’t make it any less impactful.
Five Jedi Consulate
Most of the “cool Jedi fantasy” was geared towards knights, but Consulate still has a nice story to back it up. The Consulate plays a supporting rather than agitating role in the Empire, and its conspiracy revolves around protecting the Republic and the Jedi Order.
Exciting events are all around, including saving the Order from corruption, restoring alliances between the Republic and parts of its world, and battling the Emperor’s twisted children. You’ll also have great companions like your Padawan Nadia, Lieutenant Ilesso, and the Trandoshan hunter Kaizen Feth, who’s lucky to be by your side for most of your journey.
Four jedi knight
The fantasy of the Chosen One is here. It’s all in your hands to use the Force to become powerful, become one of the most powerful Jedi, and fight right up against the Emperor. This is by far one, if not the grandest, of all the stories. Your companions range from charming to outspoken greats, and even their special stories become a draw to the class.
Out of all the classes, it’s the most hero-like class.Your choices have a great impact on the story. He’s also one of the best stories to start with, as it nicely introduces the player to the era and the overall story.
3 Sith Inquisitor
Through victory, your chains are broken. From ex-slaves to Sith Lords, The Inquisitor beautifully shows how Sith politics and the dark side work, fitting right into the mythology of the series. It might also be appealing to those who want to be villains, as there are plenty of opportunities to torment others.
Although the early stages are a bit slow (with the exception of the prologue, as it seems to be the best in the game), the story accelerates towards the middle, showing the cruel side of Sith politics, where the top Sith Aim and die. hierarchy. The comrades are also very attractive and participate in the plot the most, only improving their characters.
2 Sith Warrior
Combining the art of the lightsaber with the power of the dark side, it becomes rage itself. Pure, violent power (a very well-intentioned pun) awaits you in this class. Not only does this story maximize the potential for master-apprentice dynamics, but it also shows how intriguing a Star Wars story with the Empire’s protagonists and the Galactic Republic as antagonists can be. It goes without saying that it introduces the charm of the game. Well, this would also be perfect first class.
The story and enemies are amazing and the best end boss of all 8 stories built from scratch. The choices you make are very influential, most of the game’s best companions come from this class, and they all have their moments to shine in the story. And just because you use your emotions in combat doesn’t mean you can’t turn a Sith into a good person by being nice to others. Or at least support the oppressive Sith Empire and still be the nicest person you can be.
1 agent of the empire
It’s funny that in a Star Wars-based game with Force users, bounty hunters, and more, this random class is the best written of all. Not only does this class show you what it’s like to be a “normal” human among the Sith, but it also has an epic and complex story.
Not all of the companions are memorable, with the exception of the picky eater Kariyo, but sneaking around, hiding identities, and even becoming a double agent are some of the many highlights of the story. There are many lessons to be learned. Less ethical choices are also required. And the web of lies runs so deep that it exposes you to far more risks than you first expected. All the stories happen at the same time, though, so if you play the others first, you’ll get a few nitpicks.
