View Full Version : Starting Weapon

07-08-2003, 09:23 PM
The Devs have said that in the begginng you choose if you want to have a sword or a blaster. I was wonderign what everyone else is gonna pick, i cant decide.

The blaster will do more damage, but the feat that improve my ability with the sword will also help with the lightsaber later.

I would like to hear what some of the people who know more about the d20 rule system are going to pick.

I'll use the sword first. Then when baddies start getting frisky, I'll switch to the blaster, until I get a lightsaber that is. ;)

If I can take both, then I will take both, then I can get an idea of swordsplay for when its saber time.

If I can pick only one, it will probably be the blaster, to keep the baddies away from me, although it may not defend me from the dark jedi...:eek:

I believe your starting weapon depends on what class you are. That is, at least, how it worked in Neverwinter Nights. Seeing as how my starting class is that of a soldier, I'll start with a good ol' blaster.

I would start with a blaster as I've plenty of opportunities to use vibro blades with the other NPCs when dark jedi arrive in the game

Anyway Burrie, I posted a dev answer regarding the starting weapon in this thread (http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?threadid=104626). You might wanna have a look :)

But that quote only states that you start out with either a blaster or a short sword. It doesn't say wether you get to choose the weapon, nor that it depends on your class. It can still go either way.

if i have a chocie i guess i wil lgo with the sword, because soldiers get lots of feats that i can use to make my swordplay skills as, or almost as effective as a blaster and then i will be that much better when i get my saber. I really hope we do get a choice.

Need to get better swordsmanship for the lightsaber.

I'd probably go with the sword...but I'm thinking of being a scoundrel first...so maybe a blaster.

It'll depend on whether it is an option or class-sensitive.

4 me, definatly a blaster...think of the time it takes to run up to someone with a sword compared to just pulling the trigger...

Yea, but what if you come across a Sith??? The swords have cortosis weaves so they can combat a lightsaber, although at a disadvantage I assume.

The sword seems mighty nice. Nothing like getting medieval on a bunch of sith troopers! But I'm going to be a scoundrel, so I might not have much of a choice. Oh well. 3 DAYS!!!
