    Other than the class videos on the official site is there any information out there on how these classes actually play?

    I'm interested to see how the ranged tanks work? What exactly does "shield specialist" mean?

    Shield specialist trooper uses a self buff shield to absorb damage...range tanking is what youd think, tanking from range..however from what ive seen a melee mob (mostly creatures ofc) would still move to you so youd be tanking in melee.

    Ranged mobs (mostly humanoid) youd be tanking at a distance drawing thier fire onto you
