    Darth Nihilus is kinda connected to Revan. Battle of Malachor (number? 5?) Revan orders the activation of the shadow generator.

    Only Meetra and Nihilus survive, both wounds in the Force. Pretty sure Nihilus was Average Joe beforehand. (if I'm wrong about their only being two survivors, I apologize.)

    There was a third survivor, but Nihilus immediately Force Drained him so I didn't count him.

    Meetra's a lot more connected to DN than Revan, but I thought I'd bring it up

    I thought it was Meetra who executed the order, making it less Revan related. I don’t recall Meetra being a wound in the force however. And Meetra is very closely connected to Nihilius and The Triumvirate, she fought to demolish them and she succeeded.

    Two Revan, one light, one dark but you can only pick one. Locking the other out

    I’d be interested in a pick your Revan... dividing the player base between light and dark... might be fun and throw a few curves at the meta.
    Speculation is fun. :)
  • Meetra Surik, the Jedi Exile, could be the next legendary character. That make sense because she could smash the triumvirate sith and more guild could do it. Also the characters that were released are from KOTOR 2 but the protagonist is missing. HK-47 appear in KOTOR and KOTOR 2.

    I want to see Revan in the game but I think that he would launch until the next year.

    He’s gonna be darkside I think and here’s why; for all but 1 legendary event, the prize (palp, BB8 etc) you need their enemies to unlock them... so the lightside old republic will get us the dark side revan? Orrrr if we’re lucky the Sith get that tag, then revan gets a lead for all “old republic” characters giving us crazy synergy for the next meta line up. I like both
  • How about releasing two revans. One Jedi one sith with different abilities.

    There are other characters, like Ventress, who were both at alternate times, and are not both in-game. The most famous version of Revan is probably the one who was dark with Malak as his apprentice. Since the characters they are introducing to wall Revan off behind vaults of crystals are light side, it seems like Revan will be dark side. For most of the legendary type characters you have to build up a whole team of an opposing faction in order to get them.

    I got an crazy Idea listen. What if they make him both light side and dark side. So he has a double unique in one unique. It would be something like this: When under a dark side lead his dark side unique is activated and other way around under a light side lead. And then they can skip his lead and just have 2 uniques and 2 specials and a basic. (Specials work either way if he’s under a light and dark side lead) That way you could have both Revans.

    What if someone decides to not run him under a lead at all? What alignment would he be?
  • Unfortunately they'll squander a great opportunity here... My guess is that they'll make the playable Revan LS and make a Darth revan a boss to fight somewhere.

    Carth Onasi could be 5th...

    Should be the fifth.

    Both CLS and JTR have their companion character that they require, a Legendary character that comes first.

    Given that Carth is the first true party member you meet in the game, and is more tied into the plot than anyone in the party but Bastila, the only way his exclusion from this list of new KotOR characters makes sense is if he's going to be the equivalent of R2 and BB8

    My vote for Carth is that I'm pretty sure the Ebon Hawk is coming; it'd be darn waste if it didn't, and I have a hunch the devs are aware that they badly need more ships in the game. You can't really have the Ebon Hawk without Carth (and Bastila as co-pilot).

    So you could only have one or the other? That is most interesting indeed. I'd go Dark Side just cause I prefer Dark Side. The only way a hero can be a hero is for there to be a powerful villain.

    That being said, once one side realized they didn't choose the meta the outrage here would break internet faster than a Kardashian posting a pic on twitter.

    Also because clearly jedis arent wowing people yet. And i mean jedis, not light side. Unless revan has affinity with light or dark side rather than jedi or sith faction, u will probably see most people just adding revan to the trium mix

    I doubt they will take this KOTOR thing far enough to have Revan or Malak, let alone bend the rules that would have to be bent for any kind of Revan to work. Fingers crossed, though.

    And please, please don't forget Canderous!
  • I personally don't think it will be a hero's journey, that would require them to put another Revan into the game (E.G for CLS we needed farmboy, for JTR we needed scavenger)

    My predictions for Revan requirements
    Legendary event: Meetra Surik
    Marquee: Bastila, Jolee, Vao, T3, Zaalba

    Darth Revan requirements
    Legendary event/raid reward: Traya
    Marquee: Darth Malak, Sith Maurader, HK-47, Sith Emperor.

    Villain's Journey - Darth Vader (No Suit - EP 3). Need 7* Sidious, 7* General Kenobi, 7* Qui Gon, 7* URoRRuR'R'R, 7* JKA

    Tier 1 - Qui Gon vs Darth Maul in desert phase 1, Naboo in 2nd phase - dies, GK v Maul final phase
    Tier 2 - URoRRuR'R'R vs Schmi 1-on-1
    Tier 3 - JKA solo vs 5 phases of Tuskens
    Tier 4 - JKA/GK/event jedi versus droids, Geonosians, magnaguards, and then Dooku/Grievous
    Tier 5 - JKA/Sidious versus Jedi, final phase is Mace, Kit Fisto, Agen Kolar, Saeser Tiin
    Tier 6 - JKA vs 5 waves of younglings/Jedi protectors
    Tier 7 - GK vs new Ep3 Vader 1-on-1

    Slightly serious, slightly tongue-in-cheek
  • I think they either use specific characters related to the story of Revan (or Surik) OR generic tags like SIth or KOTOR.

    I can't see Sidious being a requirement to unlock Mitra Surik.
    But...we are using Ewoks to battle separatists...

    There is a lot of blending of KOTOR and KOTORII in here. Some of it could make sense though...Atris and Kreia did have some pull on Revan we learned later on.

    I think the dollars and game history tell us they will release these light side KOTOR characters, a 6th could arrive in a more special event (Catrth) and then we use them to unlock the first Revan.
    Down the road we get some DS KOTOR characters and we can sue them for a DS Revan - useful for reballancing the Sith.

    The Jedi are clearly on the upswing. We keep hearing that the Seps will come back. Bounter Hunters will get another boost at that point. The Resistance and the FO will get another pump. ANd then they will have to re-boost the Sith (Darth Revan)

    In all honesty it should just be one Revan, and thats lightside. Under his own free will he is a light side jedi. We only think Darth Revan so much because of the mask that Darth Revan uses.

    Remember Revan never fell to the dark side. He was mind dominated(as was Malak). If Revan gets a dark side toon then Bastilla should too because she actually fell to the dark side. And Jolee will be the first grey jedi.

    I've emboldened the bit I'm referring to but.. wut? Did a writer completely neuter the complexity of the character with a terrible retcon in a bad EU book?

    I played both KOTOR games heavily and I'm aware there's a Revan book that basically demotes Bastilla to "stay at home mum" but I've never read it. I'm also aware there was a Revan thing at some point in SWTOR's existence but never really got on with that game. I can only assume that "Revan hype" was milked for all it was worth and totally invalidated the point of the story in KOTOR along the way.
  • I think Malak will be a legendary.

    Then he'll be needed for a journey style event to get Revan.

    He'll be like Visas I imagine, no particular affiliation with a faction but technically LS if the LS/DS isn't flexible enough to account for a completely neutral toon. He did reunite both sides of himself in ToR so he maybe would lean either way.

    In any case I expect he'll end up having the best leadership ability in the game, given his history.

    Hey, it's still better than MSF

    I think what there going to do is darth Revan legendary with sith needed then do a hero journey where you need darth Revan and four old republic toons to unlock Jedi Revan

  • If it’s gonna be a legendary and hero’s journey, then here’s my prediction:
    Legendary: Darth Revan (unlocks with 5 ancient sith, a tag to include Sion, nihilus, Traya, assassin, trooper, marauder and any new sith from that era)
    Hero’s journey: main character is Darth Revan, teams up with all the KotOR toons to unlock Jedi revan.
