Trooper and Bounty Hunter advanced classes are getting the once-over in Star Wars: The Old Republic once the Onslaught expansion goes live on Oct. 22. As BioWare did with the Jedi Consular and Sith Inquisitor classes, the advanced classes will be getting new abilities, set bonuses, and tactical items with the expansion.

The new ability for Powertechs and Vanguards -- the tank advanced classes -- give a small boost to armor that gets bigger as the character is attacked, peaking at a beefy +200%. Mercenaries and Commandos, which tend to be a little less durable, get an ability that sends them back from the fray and temporary immunity to crowd control effects. Set bonuses for both classes provide the usual synergies, whether you're a tank, DPS, or healer. Those armored suits can hide a lot of impressive gadgetry.

Read up on the Powertech/Vanguard changes here and the Mercenary/Commando changes here.
