Star Wars TOR Class Guides and Strategies

ddmsrealm-star-wars-korriban-khem-can-take-itIn the MMO RPG Star Wars The Old Republic, better known as Star Wars TOR or simply TOR, there are a handful of base classes. The Republic and Imperial sides of TOR have four beginning base classes. Each class mirrors the other on the opposing side.

Everyone starts out very similar. As you progress through Star Wars TOR, you will be able to choose a specialty depending on the role you want to play in a group or the type of character that most suits you. From there, you will be able to further customize your character through a variety of skill trees, fine tuning your skills and the role you play.

All of this can be overwhelming to the gamers of Star Wars TOR, and rightfully so. There are many intricacies and nuances to each class and it is important to understand these as you play Star Wars TOR so you can make the most of your character, the groups they are in, and the game as a whole.
