Welcome to the Gunslinger Builds Guide.  This guide is focused on the Sharpshooter tree, and contains all Sharpshooter builds I have used or will at some point use. This means that the other build guides on my site for the Sharpshooter tree may not be kept up-to-date, but this one will always be kept current. Also be sure to check out the other guides on the other two trees, Saboteur and Dirty Fighting!

This build guide will be in three parts. The first part is a brief description of the tree and its uses. The second part is what I consider to be “core” talents in the tree, i.e. talents I would never go without. The third part contains all of the variations that I use, have tried, or have thought about trying. Read more…

Sage “Completed”

About a week ago, I finished up my Jedi Sage (my 6th level 50) that I made the first day of pre-launch early access. Almost exactly a year later, but I finally got around to doing it.

At first, the Consular story dragged on Coruscant in the Prologue. I thought that the Consular story would be consistently boring, but apparently, it was just saving the best for later. Every chapter was more interesting, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Up to this point I would’ve ranked the stories like so:

  1. Knight/Warrior
  2. Bounty Hunter
  3. Smuggler
  4. Trooper

Now with the Consular, taking into account all of the story, not just the Prologue (which is by far the worst Prologue of any I have seen), the rankings like this for me: Read more…

Gunslinger Rotation Thoughts

LAST UPDATED: 6/18/12 for Patch 1.2.7

Up front – I will be honest – I am not a huge fan of set-in-stone rotations, as I primarily PvP, and that does not usually allow for rotations with no room for change. That being said, in PvE, I have discovered long fights can use a good rotation, so I usually do the following for each of the three specs. Read more…

Sentinel/Marauder Advanced Class Guide

June 3, 2012 11 comments

Welcome to the Sentinel/Marauder Advanced Class Guide! This is the go-to compendium of knowledge for The Fanatical Swordsman on the Sentinel and Marauder advanced classes.

LAST UPDATE: Update 2.3

Note from Geldarion: The Sentinel is my 3rd level 50, but it is actually one of my favorite PvP playstyles I have encountered. For readability sake, since I am used to the Sentinel, I will use the term Sentinel occasionally as the overall descriptor of this class-type, especially for things that are true of both classes, such as discussions of general tactics. However, I will refer to the specializations by both their names, and I will show builds for both the Sentinel and the Marauder, and I will refer to skills in a manner as such: Jedi Knight skill name/Sith Warrior skill name.
