This is like, definitely the most impressive trailer to date. The TK feats here really makes Malgus far more powerful than he was. He should definitely be like up there with the guys like Arcann or Dooku now

The level of disrespect for Malgus here is kinda comical. TK'd by a fodder knight, disarmed and kicked by a padawan, his lightning can't scratch a beam that Or easily rips down while fodder Empire inquisitors wrecks buildings with the stuff.

Finally the best TK he gets is freaking Plo Koon level if lower and doesn't even match up to his short story showings

They should have left him dead.

Trailer looks cool though

I mean, the TK feat he got there were all done casually without much strain. They were all pretty easy and he didn't even concentrate, so it doesn't really disrespect him. The knight also has ok feats

@darthor: The Knight is actually a Jedi Master, who are at the top heap of the Order barring the Council. I don't really see why that is a low showing, especially when the Master has some decent feats in the video as well, as far as the Padawan, it seems to me Malgus was just messing with her, given his dialogue and how he didn't just outright kill her when he should be able to do so. He seemed to put more effort into her Master and she was in a rage.

But yeah, the video was pretty cool.

Would love a full movie with this kind of CGI. Don't give a damn about SWTOR bc I hate MMOs but those trailers were always amazing and jaw dropping.

I am love how the Trailer focusses on the inner thoughts and conflicts of force users. Gives back those original Star Wars feels =)

Idk the fights felt less *BAM* besides that choke by malgus and when Sahar kicked him

There's theories that the original sith they were fighting was sahar's brother.

Second best one they've done. Shame the expansion was so disappointing besides a few Malgus feats that make him arguably behind only Valk, the Outlander and Vaylin overall.

@darthor: In fact quite frankly this just seemed more like an average Master/Padawan duo, unless I’ve missed something about the pair, they didn’t do anything I couldn’t see any other doing which actually would be good for scaling on a baseline level.

I mean, I don't really think you can scale their feat to just every single padawans out there, cause it might very possibly mean they are special

@darthor: We've seen Padawans do far greater things than what she did. Same with Master Orr. There wasn't anything either did, that others haven't done or couldn't do.

In truth, I weary of the "even the Jedi are terrible" narrative. It's far overused and really undercuts the original and prequel trilogy narratives. They handled the Padawan's mental struggle very poorly, and she comes across as something of an imbecile, I'm afraid. The Knight seemed a bit off too.

While I did enjoy that the unnamed Sith first being battled was portrayed as powerful, Malgus should have come across as something exceptional -- if you look at this trailer alone, Malgus seems no more threatening than the other chap.

I agree that from the standpoint of a rigorous versus analyst, two random Jedi with no prior coverage or prestige pressuring Malgus like this feels off, but nowadays I try not to judge Star Wars by such standards because the people behind the content are clearly not as obsessed with power levels as we are. The plot and spectacle are what always dictate the flow of the fights - the reason Malgus is able to one-shot three Jedi with a single spurt of lightning in the Deceived novel is because none them are relevant to the story whatsoever and only exist to serve as nameless casualties of battle, whereas here that would only make for an anticlimax and bring the narrative to a halt (also note how the Padawan is evenly matched with her Master in spite of the disparity in rank and consequently assumed disparity in strength: because the plot demands it). The creators wanted to dazzle the audience with epic lightsaber clashes, so that's what they did.

Besides that, I don't see what's supposed to be so egregious here. Malgus evidently didn't want to destroy the machine so I don't see why his lightning not damaging it would be an issue. He never strains himself or shows a substantial degree of exertion, so it's not like this caps him in any way. It's a visually cool trailer and lays down an engaging premise for the story - not that the writers are capable of ever delivering on anything - so for me it gets a pass.

Top-notch in terms of quality, but that's to be expected at that point.

Malgus' combat performance however was just laughable. That nameless inquisitor performed better against the duo than Malgus. Though to be fair, power levels post Knights of the Eternal Throne are one giant clusterfuck.

Who’s to say Malgus wasn’t holding back?

Malgus was holding back, as you find out when you play the "expansion".
