Your stats determine many things on Legends of the Jedi. Most importantly, they contribute to raising your maximum level in each class. Here is how you can raise your stats. One of the things you can do to ensure your character is prepared for any situation that occurs throughout your time here is to make certain that you’re trained properly to access the breadth of abilities available to your character. There’s a few things you can do to accomplish this, including visiting trainers, getting gains from leveling and having cybernetics installed.
Training your stats
The first thing that you should do before leveling your character is train. Every character starts with their stats below maximum. You can find out what your maximum trainable is by using SHOWRACE on your race of choice, and then adding the bonus listed to 18. For example, at the time of writing, Twi’leks get an intelligence bonus of 2. This means that the most they can train their INT stat to is 20 at an appropriate trainer. Trainers are scattered throughout the game world and some are better than others.
To train your stats at a trainer, simply type TRAIN and wait until the game indicates you’ve completed. You repeat this as many times as needed until you’ve reached your maximum trainable. If you run out of money while training, there are tier 1 quests scattered throughout the game that can provide you with additional funds. As your train your character’s stats, you’ll notice your maximum level in various classes increase. This is because your stats are tied to each class. You can view what each stat increase by viewing their help files, such as HELP STR or HELP INT.
Gains when you level up
After training, you should begin leveling. While you are leveling each class, you have a chance to gain more stats, which will in turn increase your level maximums like they were when you first trained. Each class increases a different stat. For example, leveling piloting can increase your dexterity and leveling diplomacy can increase your charisma. This is why it’s important to train first before you level.
Cybernetics to raise your stats
The final way to increase your character’s stats and potentially increase his or her levels is via cybernetics. This is typically done after training and leveling, because cybernetics can interfere with your ability to gain stats. Cybernetics are a one time permanent boost to your stats that are installed using the CYBER skill. Cybernetics can be found throughout the game world in various places and each one can provide different increases to different stats. BE FOREWARNED: Do your research first. Cybernetic installations are permanent and if you install a cybernetic that for example increases your STR by 1, you cannot later install another one that increases it by 3, or uninstall the initially installed cybernetic. Also, this method does not boost your stats over the max of 25. If you have 24 STR and you install a cybernetic that adds 3 STR, you will only see a raise of 1.
You can also increase your stats through wearing different pieces of equipment obtained through quests and various shops. The stats from equipment DO NOT increase your max level, but increasing your stats can help in other ways. For instance, increasing your strength allows you to carry heavier items and raising your intelligence lets you remember more people for longer. The most you can increase your stat from this method is to 25.
