I’ll give them this: both articles are well-written and well-reasoned, but I’m not going to be play either of these. Oh, no. I’m going to be playing a Sith Inquisitor – the true power behind the Sith Empire, and the pinnacle of mastery for dark side Force users. Do I even need to explain?
Wait, I do? Dammit. I was hoping this would be a short article.
Alright, then: here’s the top ten reasons why I’m going to be rolling a Sith Inquisitor when SWTOR launches. And some captions proving that the Sith Inquisitor is YOUR FRIEND!

All you need to do is almost die, and then put away your lightsaber and say something like “Yes, young Jedi! That’s it!

8. They’ve got lightsabers
In a Star Wars MMO, I’m going to gravitate to classes with lightsabers. Lightsabers are pretty much the most iconic thing about Star Wars. Normal swords are great and all, but swords made of
