    Class Question

    So this might be a dumb question and it might have been asked before. BUT, Are there 8 differant classes or 4 with differant names be faction? If its just differant names per-faction would someone be so kind as to match the ones so i know what is what.
    Thanks!
    and sorry for the noobish question haha

    Jedi Knight = Sith Warrior
    Jedi Consular = Sith Inquisitor
    Smuggler = Imperial Agent
    Trooper = Bounty Hunter

    Jedi Guardian = Sith Juggernaut
    Jedi Sentinel = Sith Marauder
    Jedi Sage = Sith Sorcerer
    Jedi Shadow = Sith Assassin
    Gunslinger = Sniper

    Like said, there are 4 distinctly different classes. 4 on each faction that mirror each other with moves. The moves do the same thing pretty much, but have different names and animations.

    There are 8 advanced classes, which are in fact classes. Each base class can choose 1 of 2 ACs and that is what determines what class you are. Again, these are mirrored.

    Each Advanced class has 3 specs to choose from.

    Each class has 2 ACs you can choose from. At level 10 you can choose.

    Yeah got that, I mean when you actually reach 10 what do you do? In my mind I have it as similar to selecting the spec currently in WoW.

    You have to follow you class story which will lead you go a npc that gives you a choice between the two AC. You have to pick one during the conversation and then you unlock your talents.
