This is my first gameplay / guide video for the Powertech advanced class in Star Wars: The Old Republic. Powertech is the mirror class to the Trooper Vanguard, so the material covered in this video is relevant to players of either class.
The video provides detailed educational commentary on Powertech’s single-target and AOE damage mechanics, CC abilities, defensive tactics, and analysis of match play in Huttball.
Here is the spec used in the video:
I queued solo for this match and finished with 273k damage, 51 kills (23 killing blows, 2 solo kills), and 15k Protection.
Also included is a clip of my 20 Powertech soloing a 28 Trooper Commando (at 35% health) and 28 Jedi Consular Sage.
Comments / Errata:
- I sometimes referred to Powertech abilities by their counterpart Vanguard names. E.g. Mortar Volley instead of Death From Above, Gut instead of Retractable Blade
- the Jedi Consular who punted me was Shadow not Sage spec’d
- one thing I didn’t mention was Neural Dart. As a Taunt, it debuffs your target’s damage by 30% against any friendly except for you
For more information on Powertech PVP, please refer to my in-depth Guide.
To see me PVP’ing live, check out the streaming schedule on TwitchTV. My stream features real-time narration and commentary – and to the extent possible interaction with the Chat Room.
