Star Wars: The Old Republic Wiki

Advanced classes are specialized careers that characters can choose in Star Wars: The Old Republic. As a character becomes more seasoned through adventure, they will be given the opportunity to undertake one of two advanced classes. This decision is equally as important as creating a character. This is because the choice will not only make a character more distinct and powerful, but it will also help further define the role a character plays.

In addition to class-specific skills and abilities, advanced classes grant access to role-defining abilities that represent additional areas of expertise. Some may even grant new weapon and armor types. Additionally, each advanced class has three sets of skills, or disciplines, available to further customize a character.

Advanced classes by faction[]

The main goal of the advanced class system is to allow players to customize their characters according to their playing style. For example, some Sith Warrior players will want to charge into the fight and take the full heat of the enemies' aggression. Others will want to execute their maneuvers more strategically, focused on channeling all their rage to destroy their enemies as quickly as possible. The advanced class system provides these kinds of choices and more.

About Advanced Classes[]

A few important notes:

  • Advanced classes are actually the "class" of this game, so there are sixteen classes (eight classes for Republic and eight classes for Imperial). What SWTOR calls "class" would better be called "story" as the eight primary classes (four Republic and four Imperial) each have their own story.
  • Classes are exact mirrors of each other. For example, Smuggler and Imperial Agent are exact mirrors. They look different, have different stories, different special effects, etc... but the back-end numbers are all an exact match. The table above has been designed to mirror what is mirrored in-game.
