The Old Republic Sith Divide Explained

Careful, that stings.

Today’s been a good day, I know, but it doesn’t mean you haven’t had that nagging question in your head. Like the small stone in the bottom of your shoe, it’s been frustrating you throughout. You’ve been wanting to know the difference between the Sith Warriors and Sith Inquisitors in Star Wars MMO The Old Republic. We’re here for you, the answer’s below.

It’s important to not ever just say “inquisitor”, but rather to boom, giant emphasis on the “or”:


Sadly the developers do not adhere to this rule during the video, but they do go into some depth about how the two types of Sith class are differentiated, why they chose to make two types in the first place (think Darth Vader vs. Emperor Palpatine), and a little bit of detail about how playing the Dark Side doesn’t necessarily mean being constantly evil. Plus, rather significantly, there’s (eventually) a bunch of in-game footage, rather than the flipping artwork BioWare keep putting in the trailers.

Dave Tosser says: I’ve never properly understood why BioWare are persisting with this era of the Star Wars universe. George Lucas carefully crafted an elaborate back-story to the classic films with his recent trilogy, rich with ideas and worlds in which an MMO could be set. Also, I’m concerned this game isn’t nearly enough like World of Warcraft.
