Jedi vs. Sith Part Two

A couple of years ago I wrote a post about how I was playing Star Wars: The Old Republic and comparing my Jedi and Sith characters. In that post I remarked that I felt the Jedi was the stronger of the two characters based on how the fighting style seemed more focused and controlled. Well, I think I’ve changed my mind.

After I wrote the original post, I eventually finished the class stories for my Jedi Consular and Sith Inquisitor and also played as a Jedi Knight and Sith Warrior. And after finishing all four of the Force-wielding classes, I have to say that the Sith get better everything–better stories, better companions, better music, etc. The Jedi are definitely the better fighters, but their stories just seem so bland when compared to their Sith counterparts. Of course, it could be that I found the Sith stories more compelling because I wasn’t strictly dark side with them; I made a lot of light side choices that added a certain amount of nuance to the overall plot whereas I was pretty much straight light side with the Jedi. But on the whole the Sith characters just came across as so much more interesting.

Just how interesting did I find the Sith? I played through the Warrior story twice, once as a marauder and once as a juggernaut. To be perfectly honest, though, I did think the Jedi Knight story was just about on an even keel with the Sith Warrior story in terms of quality. In fact, after playing all of the Force-wielding classes, I began to think the Jedi Consular story was pretty boring, which made me a little sad because the Consular was the first character I ever created. At the time it was utterly fascinating, but compared with the other stories, it ends up a bit underwhelming. So in a way, it’s kind of interesting to see how a couple extra years in the game have changed my opinion of it.
