    Spec discussion (all classes)

    Just wondering what specs people will be playing for their respective classes. I could use some input on what some of you guys are thinking. Any class, or roll. (Personally going SI [DPS] or BH [DPS])

    <Snip> NDA

    Edit-Doh! My bad on the link. Wasn't thinking.

    They need to pull the plug on the NDA. I'm more interested in a ?/?/? Discussion.

    I'm going to be going for a Sith Warrior with Juggernaut as my AC, probably speccing into Vengeance. (That's the DPS Juggernaut tree for anyone unfamiliar with specs etc) I decided on this because I have always liked the look of a single lightsaber more than a dualwield look, also I will be able to tank for my guild if needed so it's a double win.

    Btw I'm pretty sure that talent calculator is actually NDA breaking, might want to take it down before a mod sees it.

    Remove your link bro, you're bending the NDA over and spanking it.

    I will play Trooper - Vanguard - Shield Specialist. My favorite spec out of three, it will be a beast time live comes.

    This really isn't a complete choice.

    Assassin or Sorceror?

    Mercenary or Powertech?

    Personally im leveling 2 toons, 1 solo and 1 with my wife.

    Solo- IA - Operative DPS- Concealment Spec
    Wife - SW - Juggernaut Tank- Vengeance (Immortal once high level)

    Imperial Agent - Sniper - Marksman. For some serious sniping.

    Bounty Hunter/Mercenary and a IA/Sniper. I plan to do the BH first, but the recent IA prog video has me thinking twice. It will probably be a BH though, I played one in SWG.

    Assault Spec Commando Trooper and Arsenal Merc Bounty Hunter, followed by a Scrapper Scoundrel Smuggler and a Engineering Sniper Imperial Agent...

    I keep seeing some DPS specs listed as "burst damage DPS". I can guess what it is but I'm not exactly sure. Are there "burst DPS" specs in WoW that will give me a better understanding of what that really means?

    To me it just sounds like maybe a bunch of procs or a long timer ability will determine when you do good damage, meaning that in some circumstances DPS will be sub-par with bad luck or when that ability is on cool down.

    Anyways I'll be playing a consular and maybe a Knight and smuggler- not sure what A/C or specs yet, probably healer for consular.

    Think ret pally. Or perhaps destro lok v affliction. Frost DK v unholy. RNG has an impact in terms of crits, and CDs are usually involved.

    I am leaning towards a shadow. I am gonna wait and play it before deciding if I will tank or not.

    I'm probably going with Jedi consular shadow with infiltration as my main tree. If I don't go republic then the inquisitor counterpart of what I just said.

    I'm still having a hard time deciding what my first character will be.

    On one hand, I love how the troopers look. On the other, the Bounty Hunters' gadgets and attitude really appeal to me.

    Of course, I also always wanted to be a Jedi growing up (and Satelle in the CGI looks great), but I also want to explore the mysteries of the Sith as an Inquisitor.

    I just can't decide.

    I'm hoping some good theorycrafting gets going on optimal DPS/Tanking specs and stat weights. One thing I'm a bit worried about is picking a class that ends up being terrible. XD I've had that happen in a couple MMOs now, and while it isn't a big deal in the beginning, it becomes a bit of an issue later. I'm leaning on Trooper Vanguard as my advanced class, but am also considering Jedi Guardian/Sentinel...just not sure which one yet. Knowing which ones perform most optimally will help me make my decision.

    If I didn't hate tanking I'd play this class in a hearbeat. Assassin tanks look like the coolest class design I've ever seen in an MMO.

    Bounty Hunter Tank (Powertech is the spec I think)

    Will probably end up as a Trooper-Commando since that BFG just looks so awesome. But also since I like being dps and this time I can play a nice dps class an still help out myself or others with a bit of healing even if I'm not not specced for it.
