If you've been waiting to get your hand on the Jedi Guardian Combat Style on the Star Wars: The Old Republic PTS, it's now available. But, there's stuff BioWare would like you to know before you go hopping in there and start swinging your saber around and using your force powers -- mostly what they intend to achieve with this bit of testing.

Currently, BioWoare is focused on what they need to do to ensure that players can learn how to play the Jedi Guardian without too much difficulty. This means they need to understand how players use the class' abilities and providing them with the information needed to do so in the best way possible. One of the things they're working on is ensuring the system allows players to not become overwhelmed and to be able to use customization without too much fuss. This means reducing the amount of abilities while making sure they're unique to the character.

Because of this, players won't be able to get down to the nitty-gritty with the Jedi Guardian. Everything they have access to is going to be pretty surface level with limits on what's available to play and customize. Don't worry, the rest will be available at a later time.

Those interested in helping test the Jedi Guardian in the current PTS will need to hit up either the SWTOR forums or the game's Steam Page (depending on where you play) for instructions on how to do so.
