This week Bioware released the latest of their class trailers for Star Wars: The Old Republic.  This one particularly interests me because it features the Jedi Consular, the class I plan to play when I get my hands on TOR.  

Just as in my playthrough at SDCC I'm surprised at how DPS heavy this "healing class" really is.  So far they have only released information on the Shadow specialization, but I'm curious how healing will work in a game where you only have a few healing abilities at your disposal.  I can't imagine it will be all that fun to spam my one heal button like I did in the PvP Warzones -- although it was nice to know I could hold my own against the Jedi Knights and actually bring them down using a combo of ranged and melee abilities.  For now I'm going to reserve judgement until I get a chance to play the Jedi Consular myself.  Let's just leave it at "curious and slightly concerned."  

Star Wars: The Old Republic will be coming out soon if the Collector's Edition details are any sign, but we still have no definite release date.  Heck, I'm still waiting for beta access -- sigh.  Hit the jump to watch the video for yourself.

I for one cannot wait for TOR.  The more information I read and see, the more I wish I was in beta :)  I know it is only revolutionizing a few aspects of the MMORPG genre, but those are aspects I am looking forward to.  The individual stories for each class, the choices you make to influence those stories and the companions on top of that are just great.
