The Star Wars: the Old Republic Powertech Advanced Class

By Marshall Subscribe to RSS | December 3rd 2011 | Views:

Star Wars: The Old Republic is an online role-playing game focusing on pre-Episode 4 history; the battle of ultimate supremacy between the Empire and the Republic. Out of all the classes in the SWTOR universe, players appeal mostly to the Bounty Hunter class. This class can be upgraded and advanced into two powerful classes: Powertech and Mercenary class. Each of these classes has their own abilities, advantages and disadvantages. Let's check out the Powertech class to see if its right for you.

The SWTOR Powertech can be considered the tanking class of the Bounty Hunters. Essentially, this means the Powertech is a heavily armored and a destructive class that can endure and deal great amount of damage. The Powertech focuses on “Shield Tech”, a skill tree which allows access to the newest, thickest and most protective shield. Players attacking this class will throw their hands up in defeat as the Powertech shrugs off their most powerful attacks. Now, isn't a walking tank fun to use? More details about the class skills are shared at .

The SWTOR Powertech class focuses on Advance Prototype skills. This skill tree gives them access to the latest technology in defense and offense. The Powertech is a natural using powerful gadgets: bombs, traps, droids and new upgrades to their arsenal. Powertechs love adding onto their preferred weapon: a flamethrower. The Advance Prototype option allows the player to adjust the damage produced by the flamethrower. Flamethrowers are good to use within a short range and the duration of the burn lasts long even after the flamethrower has been 'turned off'. It has already been established a flamethrower is the Bounty Hunter's class best friend; in the hands of a Powertech, enemies will burn to a crisp. Even the strongest.

The "Firebug" skill tree gives the Powertech upgraded weapons as well as missiles and rocket based attacks. These are the primary advantages of this class. A player that wants to storm into battle as a nearly invulnerable tank will highly benefit with this class.

However, this focus on powerful attacks and defense highlights the weakness of the Powertech class. They lack stealth skills. They simply cannot hide or blend into the background like other classes. For a skilled stealth based attacker, such as a Sniper, a Powertech can sometimes be a sitting duck in the middle of a battle.

The SWTOR Powertech unfortunately is also one of the slowest classes in the game. Compensating for their heavy armory and equipment, the Powertechs are basically the snails of the game; unable to run, let alone, sprint, the Powertech players inch their way through gameplay. Even with their plates of armor and destructive attacks, a skilled and quick warrior may take down these walking tanks with ease. For details about the other classes and gaming aspects, visit .

Protection is the key when playing a Powertech class but if players do not have the patience due to the lack of speed the Powertech class possess, it is highly recommended to chose another class that balances strength and speed. However, if players prefer the tank types like Powertech and do not mind going at a slower pace, Powertechs are perfect. After all, why do you have to be afraid when you are a walking tank with big guns and holding a flamethrower?
