The Old Republic's 'Jedi Consular' class is way more exciting than anything else 'consular'


Given how politics play out in Star Wars (take, for example, 90% of The Phantom Menace), you might think "Jedi Consular" would be a boring class to play in The Old Republic. Judging by this video, you would be wrong. Like 90% of The Phantom Menace.

As depicted in this trailer, the Jedi Consular is an imposing, diplomatic Jedi who also throws stuff around with his mind, resists lightning shot at his chest, has complete mastery of a lightsaber, and can heal nearby allies with a wave of his hand. We can't tell if he's healing an armored trooper or a droid there at the end, but honestly, that's more than we can do either way.
