Neneus has given me the idea of bringing back a very old rank in the Dark Empire of the Sith dating back to its first year in the Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy game known as the Royal Guards.
In the Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy game a Royal Guard's sole purpose was to defend me, your Dark Lord during combat. However, in The Old Republic, due to game mechanic differences, the role of a Royal Guard has been changed.
Royal Guards would protect any Tier 3 ranks such as Sith Lords or higher during open world PVP areas, such as Tatooine's Dune Sea. A Royal Guard would moderate their superiors travels and engage in any fight that bestowed their Lord.
Neneus also gave a good idea that Royal Guards should all be the Sith Assassin advanced class also implying all Royal Guards should be in-game Sith Inquisitors. The reason for Assassins is so the user would have the unlimited invisibility power allowing the Royal Guard to hover around his Lord undetected by others.
For Example: A Republic player attacks a -[DE]- Sith Lord, which has two Sith Assassin Royal Guards around him stealthed.
The Republic player would attack the single Sith Lord then the Royal Guards would uncloak themselves and help the Lord demolish the advisory.
This would bait the Republic players and trap them into an unfair unwinnable battle. The Royal Guard rank would be a side rank, meaning its not your main Dark Empire rank. Its a side responsibility form which to aid your guild.
Post below if you like the idea for this side rank and if you would agree they should only be Sith Assassins or if you disagree and believe they should be other classes as well. Also post if you yourself would like to become a Royal Guard in -[DE]-
A Royal Guard should at least be level 40 in-game.
