    Seems like they are phoning it in with the staff. Just attach two of the swords together and bam a staff.

    • asdalmeida

      Actually… looking at the 2 images it seems there is more to it than that. When stowed on the back the blades seem “retracted” and when in use they are “out”. There seems to some animation going on there. Interesting.

      • That is correct, you will see it in the video when I upload it.

        • Draec

          So the exact opposite of phoning it in. Imagine that!

          • Joseph Harry

            It still looks like a copy paste sell for money item. If your going to make a saber staff version of the sword I would think they could be more creative then slapping two of the normal swords on the end of a stick and having the blades retract as the only thing more than the simple copy paste modeling.

            • Devolus

              Did you want sparklers to come off it as well? Maybe add some unnecessary attachments? As broll stated above, that is what a double-ended sword is. That’s how they were in KOTOR 1 and 2. I’m glad the only flair they added was the retractable blades.

            • Psychlon

              zip it…. we finally got an electrostaff which doesn’t look like it’s used for kitchen work!

            • Chakra

              But… a saberstaff is exactly that… two swords stuck together on opposite ends of a short stick…

              Are you saying that the Cathar Warblade that is a saberstaff version of the Cathar honour blade, should look completely different from its original version?
              Are you going to complain to japanese swordsmiths about how a dai-katana just looks like an oversized katana?

              • Chakra

                I mean nodachi… not daikatana… i just woke up :/

    • broll

      Isn’t that what most saberstaffs are? When you read the name did you expect anything different. I know several people that have been waiting for them to finally make a staff version of this sword.

  • Dremel

    Dulfy is lightning fast!

  • Dremel

    Ouh! What I expected… it’s cutting in the Lekku of my assassin! Boohoohoo!

  • Scottie

    So… what’s the deal with transfers? All the FAQs on the official site link to non-existent articles. Do all of your legacy unlocks/ achievements transfer? or just the ones earned by the character transferring? (e.g. the Loremaster tag) // and do we have any word on if this is a temporary service? or can we wait a bit to let the dust settle before picking a server? – I just don’t want to be stuck if the stop transfers. :/

  • GameEntity

    Those glowy speeders are absolutely atrocious. If it’s the “Old” Republic, why add things to the game that look even more modern, than the Star Wars technology, that comes afterwards?

    • Dremel

      Because the romans also had more advanced technology than people in in medieval times.
      The idea is just wrong, that who comes after is more modern.

    • Gryphon

      Just take a look at Epesides 1-3 compared with 4-6. The tech quality goes down considerably after Palpatine takes control. Tech can come in waves, depending on what happens in a society.

    • Draken Zero

      Star Wars happens in the past!

  • cool

    they are running out of ideas apparently. how many aratechs can one make and 1500cc for that thing?

  • Project XXVIII

    I’d be head over heals if they added a “butterfly-sling blade” ala GUNNM.

  • Guest

    is that a companion in the warstaff video?
