    Lightsaber colors

    Hope this doesn't break NDA, but is your lightsaber color a choice, or random?

    Choise, you can get Crystals that change your Lightsaber color, and depending on your LS/DS choise get red for Republic and blue for Empire.

    hmm in the films its always been blue for the jedi and red for the sith , so i guess it will be the same . As well tho i guess other colours will be available , after all mace windu used a violet coloured lightsaber.

    in other star wars games there were lightsabers of all different colors, the usual green, blue and red seen commonly in the movies, as well as violet, silver, and orange

    Why have the urge to post wrong stuff like this ?

    Lightsaber colors are NOT restricted by faction.

    I would assume it would follow a similar progression as the previous Old Republic games, depending on what you choose you get assigned your first Lightsaber (Sentinal was yellow, Knight was Blue and the last sub class was green), but after that quest, your initial colour could be changed by visiting a cave and retrieving various coloured crystals, or buying special crystals for absurd prices or a by doing a long and tedious quest chain. (Grey / white crystal from KOTOR 2 anyone?)

    If i was a betting man, i would assume it's the same. There is just to much customization for them to overlook.

    Blue or green. And, in the one case, purple, like you said.

    Rule of Thumb: If the healer's HPS is higher than your DPS, you're doing it wrong.

    But they are restricted on morality i.e if you are not DS and not Empire you won't get red color.

    There's blue, green, red, yellow, and purple at least. And the pre-order bonus crystal is supposedly yellow with a black outline?

    According to The Jedi Path: A Manual for Students of the Force, lightsaber colors originally indicated a Jedi's role in the Order. For example, Jedi Consulars, who focused on non-violence, carried green lightsabers to symbolize peace. Jedi Guardians, on the other hand, carried blue lightsabers as a symbol of uniformity and solidarity.
    Just in case anyone was wondering...

    Rule of Thumb: If the healer's HPS is higher than your DPS, you're doing it wrong.

    Ultraviolet lighsaber. Also known as blacklight or fluorescent lightsaber. How epic would that be?

    That doesn't mean BETA has all the features in yet. He's right about morality, the developers said that's the way they'd be going about it.

    I don't know much about SWTOR and don't really plan on playing it, but wouldn't it feel weird if Sith could use blue & green lightsabers, and Jedi could use red ones?

    Dude, just because you're from Germany doesn't mean people just attach that man with the funny moustache to your persona. You're allowed to be an indvidual within a group.

    Even within the Star Wars universe, the meaning of lightsaber colors is not always certain. Jedi vs. Sith: The Complete Guide to the Force, for example, states that the idea of lightsaber colors reflecting their wielders' personalities is a "popular notion," but incorrect. Rather, lightsaber colors depend on the type of crystals used to create the blade.
