Sorry you weren' first

@Absol197 so does this make you feel slightly better? Does it nose well for anything in the pipeline?

And it looks like there may be a dual wield talent and more than one tree with a conflict talent.

Where are you getting a dual-wield and more than one conflict talent from?  Yes, the article mentions that combat and conflict go hand in hand, but that's nothing new; the core book mentions that. 

And I didn't see any mention of dual-wielding in the text.  Are you referring to the image near the end?  The one in the rain?

Well 2 images of 2 characters dual wielding lightsabers, one on the cover, makes me hypothosize.

And they mention vaapad which seems it would have a conflict talent plus they seem to mention / stress conflict a lot in the article.

I'l admit I am only guessing but hey

I would be more excited but... I'm still waiting for the other 3-4 Star Wars books to come out. Everything's been halted thanks to L5R, SW Legion and Legacies. So... I'm looking forward to this in December 2019?

Vapaad I am surprised it was included. Being its inventor is dead.

But he left a holocron laying around on every world so it is pretty widespread... jk. But it' interesting that we will finally have a true 2 trees for lightsaber.

I wonder if Vapaad will have technique or will just favor brawn?

I'm excited.  Hopefully Vaapad will be a better spec than Shien for my character.

I want it to be better than Shii Cho, Shien is pretty good.

So, is anyone else stupidly happy they used Ahsoka for the cover character on this one?

Now, normally, I'd always prefer a non-canon, custom character on the front of the career books, but I love it when us togrutas get more representation, and Ahsoka is just the best!

 

EDIT: :blink: Seven likes (and counting)... I guess that I was not the only stupidly happy person about togrutan inclusiveness...

Or you all are big Ahsoka fans :D !

Doesn't Ahsoka use Shien tho? Dont have book on hand but that's not a warrior spec?

Yes, Ahsoka's style is classically Shien.  They even have her specialized reverse-grip attachments in Endless Vigil!  Although Shlam is correct that she was trained by the Warriorest Warrior who ever Warriored.  So...

If I had to classify Ahsoka as one of the careers in F&D, I'd go with Warrior. Partly because that's how I see Anakin (he started as a Warrior: Starfighter Ace, duh! And Ben Kenobi's comment to Luke, that he was a "cunning warrior"), and partly just because of her personality. She just doesn't scream Sentinel to me.  She's rough-and-tumble, aggressive, impetuous. 

Just because she uses a "reverse shien" style in fighting, doesn't mean she needs to have the Shien Specialist talent tree, IMO. I'd peg her as a Warrior: Aggressor (right side) / Ataru Striker. Later in life she would have fleshed out more of the Aggressor tree.
