Advanced Class Visual Recognition

Sometimes we receive customized submissions where the submitter doesn’t specify the character’s class. Since we separate customized sets by class, I created this guide to help us identify the different classes by their weapons or how they hold their weapons and thought someone else might find it useful.
Unfortunately, all classes hold lightsabers the same way in the preview menu, so it’s impossible to tell between Guardians/Juggernauts and Sages/Sorcerers if the character is wearing adaptive armor.

    Article Mistakes, your article reads:”Operative Identical to Vanguard.” Operative is Scoundrel. And “Mercenary Identical to Gunslinger”. Mercenary is Trooper.

      No, you’re not correct. This is visual recognition of the classes, not which classes have mirror abilities. The Operative and Vanguard share the same visual looks because they both use blaster rifles. The Scoundrel does not look similar to an Operative because Scoundrels use blaster pistols. The same is true for the Mercenary and Gunslinger rather than Mercenary and Commando.

    One thing you might want to note. A lot of RPers seem to hate assault cannons for whatever reason, so you might get some Commandos toting blaster rifles instead.

    Still don’t get the draw; assault cannons are badass, imo.

      They look a bit ridiculous tbh.

        Not from the cinematics. If you get one that looks right, then it doesn’t look ridiculous. You just have to look around for a good one. I think some of the early Cartel Market ones are nice. They also have Assault Cannons in The Clone Wars, so I don’t see why it’s ridiculous to see them in this era.

    What’s the armor set on the Sage? Is that the Regal Apparel with a Light Blue and White dye mod? It looks lovely.
