Advanced Classes are the different routes you can take in each class in Star Wars: The Old Republic. Each increases your effectiveness in the roles that class is able to fill in the game.


Shadow Skill Tree

The skill tree of the Jedi Shadow Advanced Class as of April 8th, 2011

Each class has two advanced classes; at Level 10, on the capital world of the players faction (Coruscant for the Republic and Dromund Kaas for the Empire) or on the faction's fleet (Imperial Fleet or the Republic Fleet), you will choose your path. Each advanced class has two skill trees specific to that class, as well as a third skill tree shared with the other class.

In addition to skill sets, your Advanced Class selection provides access to specialized types of equipment (ex: armor, gadgets, heavy weapons, and different lightsaber types). Not only will these items increase combat effectiveness, they will also help create a visual 'signature' for your character.[1]

This advanced class system is coined to be the first "specialization" system where all the starter classes' abilities can be used throughout the game, instead of some abilities just being thrown aside.
