Edit: First time posting on this board, so I don't know if this is where this is allowed to go. If not, please forgive my ignorance.
My friends and I finished the beginner game and now we're all creating characters (with a custom campaign) using the beta ruleset (and updates). I love the Bounty Hunter personally and am thinking either Gadgeteer or Assassin. Now I also want to try the Exiled Jedi, because well the powers seem awesome. For the group through, we need a pilot.
I can do the pilot thing no problem and just stack skills that require agility. My question is, would you wait until later to take the exiled Jedi and drop all the XP into bumping up the main stat (agility) since you can only do this during character creation? It seems like this would be the benefit over the long haul, and give me more dice to roll for everything from ranged weapons to piloting - or would you say screw that and drop points into Jedi tree. Our plan at the moment is to play this for now, and if we can, adapt the character when the core rulebook drops (pending there aren't too many differences). If we have to we'll just start from scratch.
On a side note, I think it's sad the Rodian is the only species with 3 agility, Twi'leks should be up there as well (based on all that dancing they do).
