If you notice later in the video of the advanced classes you can clearly see that the sabers are not big like the first one you get. You need to pay attention a little more.

I donno...the video did not move me that much. But I think I'm just jaded by mmos these days.

@Yellowdancer Sitting with about the same feeling, though I have made a decision to not get hyped about this game no matter what they decide to show off pre-launch. I have a feeling that if I get overly hyped I will only be disappointed when I finally get to play it.

Btw, does anyone know anything about the inventory/equip system in this game yet? Just wondering if the armors are handled like Dragon Age where one armor item gives you the complete set of shoulders, chest and leggings, or if they are handled like WoW/Rift/ect..

PS: How much do you want to bet that at least one guy will go "Omg, there is only 6 JK armors? This sucks!" after watching this video?

It's like most other MMOs. There are slots for different item pieces (chest, feet, hands, etc.).

Interesting looks, they fit the Jedi well. Animations are better than they were, but there's still something off about the whole thing. Seems too...slow.

Yeap that's same way I feel about the animations esepcially the "choreographed lightsaber clashes" Its like they agree to clash with each other rather than clashing unexpectedly or due to circumstances lol.

@Dirame Agreed. The character animation in this game looks choppy and inorganic. The Jedi in this video moves more like a robot than a person. My anticipation forf this game diminishes every time a watch a new trailer.

It's not just slow, the way the animations flow together just seems robotic.
Like you have a robotic that is stiff going through a selection of programmed moves, but in between each move his posture and default stance is unnatural and stiff. And nothing seems like it's touching each other. The weapons look like they are being swung and then halted right where you'd expect, but there's no sense of countering in the movement you would expect if something was pressed against something else.

OMG there is only 6 JK armor? We want more...

Could not disappoint you Faryon :)

Well its looking better, but I am not sure if I will play it. Friends and I are hoping that it will be good and that it will be worth playing the game for a long time unlike some of the current stuff.

This is probably just samples of how armors will look. I am sure they have a wide variety of armor sets.

And I also don't see the point of showing armour progression... unless people are afraid of how they will look in higher levels??

Genndy Tartakovsky's Star Wars: Clone Wars shorts started a trend by showing Obi Wan essentially wearing Clone Trooper armor beneath his Jedi robes. I thought it was a masterstroke and instantly iconic. I'm glad artists continue to copy this inspired character design motif. Looks great.

@(Unverified) Well said. Those shorts were the best Star Wars of the past 25 years.

It's funny, but I feel the EXACT opposite of this. I HATE the jedi-in-body-armor look. Maybe I'm a purist based on the films, or maybe it's my own internal image of a Jedi, but I always thought the idea was that they are monk-like. Simple robes and a tunic and such.
I'm a huge fan of the franchise, and MMOs, but the aesthetic/art direction I see the gameplay footage has enough resemblance to the CN Clone Wars style that the gameplay is going to have to be stellar for me to get past it.
