Sith Inquisitor HoloNet Update

Posted by Michael Bitton on Dec 11, 2009  | Comments

Sith Inquisitor HoloNet Update - MMORPG.com

Surely no surprise to anyone, this week's Friday Update is the addition of the Sith Inquisitor to the official Star Wars: The Old Republic website's HoloNet section.

As usual, we are treated to a few screenshots of the class, two of which are new and you can find in our SW: TOR gallery, and two we've already seen before. We also get a glimpse at some of the attire Sith Inquisitors will be able to don, and a few brief clips of their combat abilities, including some kind of force whirlwind.

The flavor info in the  Inquisitor's HoloNet entry also reveals that players will be able to use the Force to drain health from their enemies in order to heal their allies, so perhaps it will be somewhat feasible for a Sith Inquisitor to function at least somewhat as a healer. Interesting.

Read below for background on the Sith Inquisitor:

Sinister, Deceptive, Prodigy of Force Power

The history of the Sith Empire is fraught with scheming politics and dark secrets—the lifeblood of the Sith Inquisitor. Treachery hides around every corner in the Empire’s dark corridors, and survival depends on an individual’s natural cunning and the will to manipulate and defeat their enemies and allies alike. The Inquisitor experiments with forbidden powers to not only survive in this cutthroat environment, but to excel and seize authority.

Regardless of potential, few acolytes succeed in facing the rigorous trials to become Sith Inquisitors. Only the most determined acolytes attain such an achievement, but these Sith are often the ones to watch. Due to their manipulative genius, Inquisitors are skilled at exploiting both their enemies and their allies to further their own personal agendas. Channeling this Force energy, Inquisitors are capable of draining the life from their enemies and using it to feed themselves and their allies.

Though their skills are varied and many, Sith Inquisitors are most feared for their ability to channel the energy of the Force, making them a spectacle to behold on the battlefield. Seething sparks of lightning explode from the Inquisitors’ fingertips and wrap their enemies in tendrils of pure Force energy. Because Inquisitors can twist the Force into lightning to stun, subdue, or destroy their foes, it has become their signature. Those who have experienced the sensation of the Inquisitor’s Force Lightning and survived forever recoil from the crackling sound of electricity.


Mastering the Dark Side

To reach the highest echelons of power, the Inquisitor needs more than Force Lightning and a razor-sharp mind. The most formidable Inquisitors dare to explore unorthodox practices by investigating the enigmas of the past and by unlocking new powers for themselves. The Force is a source of unlimited potential—a wellspring Inquisitors tap and bend to their will. Such intensity allows Sith Inquisitors to become architects of the Empire’s future… or simply the architects of their own destruction.
