Training, Stats, and their Effect on your Character

by Zeromus

 

On Legends of the Jedi, preparation is key. 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 are a few things you can do to accomplish this, including visiting trainers, getting gains from leveling and having cybernetics installed.

 

Training

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 <race> 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 (STAT)’ 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 the 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 (STAT)’.

 

Gains

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. Here is a handy chart of what classes provide gains for which stats, and in turn what classes are increased by the various stats:

CLASS

Note: Combat only provides HR raises after the STR and CON gains are capped out.

 

Cybernetics

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.

 

Equipment

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.

Alderaanian Royal Family Celebrates Prince's Birthday
The Alderaanian Royal family is celebrating the sixteenth birthday of Prince Alrish today. As the oldest and only surviving child of King Richart Venst, Prince Alrish is next in line to become the King of Alderaan. In a rare public appearance, King Richart gave a small speech praising his only child's growth and development while also praising the continued independence of the Alderaan. "People of Alderaan, as you know a great tragedy struck my family nearly two decades ago when my children and first wife were killed in a senseless act of terrorism...but here we are, once again open to the galaxy at large, flourishing and prospering. Today is my son's sixteenth birthday and I want to wish him well, for one day, it will be he who stands here speaking to you. It is my family's promise and duty, to ensure the continued independence of Alderaan amidst these new times within the galaxy! As long as the bloodline of the Venst's continues, Alderaan shall forever be sovereign and independent!" Prince Alrish made a brief appearance to greet the royal houses and the crowd that gathered to celebrate his birthday. Currently, Prince Alrish is under tutelage by noted professor Carst Glein who has been a tutor to the royal family for nearly fifty years.

The Inquisition
A symphony of horns swell into a conservative-yet-catchy tune as an announcer begins a voice-over, "And now..your GNI Nightly News with Sebastian NewFall!" The camera dips down from high above and begins to focus in on a news desk. The lights come up, revealing a tan human with impeccable features. He beams a bright, pearly smile as the music concludes in a flourish. "Good evening! Our top story tonight:" The camera flicks to a birds-eye view of houses in Menari Heights. Various troopers in white-paneled uniforms storm into buildings, dragging occupants kicking and screaming out of their homes. "Officials with the Galactic Empire confirm to us tonight of an edict from the Lord Emperor to begin an Inquisition into the disappearance of the Jedi Order immediately following the fall of the Galactic Republic over 5 years ago. Citizens should be advised that all those that aid and abet the Jedi, old or new, in any way, shape, or form will be met with the harshest.." As one of the field interviews becomes more heated, a figure in black robes seemingly appears out of the night, raising a light sword high above his head and beginning to arc it down towards a family of four. The view quickly cuts back to the newsman, his face slack-jawed as he looks off-camera. He suddenly snaps out of it, shuffling some papers absent-mindedly and saying, sheepishly, "W...We'll be right back..."

This does mean everyone can re-restring their items if they so choose. Go ahead if you want. * Added RESTRUNG and NORESTRING flags.
