The Imperial Agent class is the spy of the Empire relying on stealth and cunning to get behind enemy lines and take out their target or recon valuable information. This class is very versatile since you can spec for close range dps, long range dps, or healing.

The Imperial Agent class has 2 progressive classes:

You can choose Concealment which will enhance your stealth and close ranged attacks for some nice burst damage. The other choice is Medic which focuses on healing and protecting your allies during combat.
