Best Duo?

I am thinking about returning to SWG for a bit (maybe until TOR goes into beta). I played before (like 4 years ago) but my wife has never played. I'm intrigued at the availability of Jedi's at the start.

I don't want my wife to get disinterested or frustrated with this game (or MMOs in general) so what would be the most fun and effective DUO to play as? We will only play together (rarely solo).

We don't plan to join a guild right away and will probably just casually play for a while, so I don't care if there's many Jedi and few of another class, just what's most fun for us.

Also, recommendations on what species are best for those classes as well as the crafting professions that synergize well would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

I have just returned myself, and alot of that depends on your play style. You could do a damage + healer combo. Which would be the most common duo prob. Like a commando or jedi and medic.

But I am not one to really give such advice cuz I have not played all the classes. So your prob best to ignore me. =D

Commando and Medic, or Commando and officer... Commando is a one way ticket to killville, so no frustration with keep getting killed, and medic or officer because they provide great buffs and support for the group... Win win duo IMO.

Are two Jedis a good duo?

Battle is a pure form of expression. It is heart and discipline, reduced to movement and motion. In battle, the words are swept away, giving way to actions-- mercy, sacrifice, anger, fear. These are pure moments of expression.

Well, they are, but if you die that's it. You're out of buffs, and you have to decide whether you want a tank and dps, or two tanks, or two dps. Personally, I'd have one light side the other dark side. The light side could agro, then the dark side could blow it away.

The more I think about it, the more I agree with this sentiment.

Yeah, two bounty hunter would be more than a match for a buffed up elder Jedi with General status.

Is this sarcasm?

Do I need to be worried that no matter what I do we will get creamed because we are new?

No, I'm saying that it will take a while before you're ready to do more than grind.

Well, that's the case in most games. You can't expect to start killing people at level 1.

yeah once you get to 90, get the mustafar buffs, then you focus on your heroic jewelry, then focus on your gcw rank. it's a long, long journey.

it's a long journey, but it is pretty fun once you get everything, even if you don't, there is alot to do.

We're not trying to talk you out of playing. I, just, wanted to make sure you knew the road you had in front of you. The game is very fun! I'm now on 46 months of playing.
