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.

Alethia Zitan, Senator of Coruscant, Retires
After a very lengthy service to the Republic, both as Scientist, Senator of Coruscant and finally Vice Chancellor, it is with the utmost sadness that the office of Alethia Ziton has announced her abrupt and sudden retirement, citing a severe incapacitating health condition. Aide's to Alethia have confirmed that she may return to the galactic scene in time, but that time is needed to focus on healing and that she cannot devote the necessary time to the Republic and citizens that she so loves. When holo'd for questioning, this is the Senator's response "I'd like to thank you all for working with me, for loving me and loving this Republic with me. I've developed a severe condition of the stomach and will be retiring, effective immediately. My doctor requires me to take some time off working so that I can attempt to recover. It breaks my heart to leave like this, but it's the only way I can for now. May the Force be with you."

Tywen Carr Issues Statement Regarding Nal Hutta
A dark haired man wearing green and white armor recognized as CorSec Director Tywen Carr by the prompter stands before a lectern at the Corellian Government Building, flanked by men and women dressed in Corellian Security armor. "Today is a new beginning. For our people and more importantly our sister planet of Nal Hutta. Today we see the forces of chaos and malcontent disbanded so that we may forge a path to a brighter tomorrow." The armor clad man sets his hands against the lectern. "I take no pleasure in the steps we had to take. They were necessary ones, but the necessary path is not always one paved with good feelings. Today I announce the disbandment of The Hutt Clans and the extended umbrella of Corellian Security Force. We will not stand idly by while sentients such as these work to destabilize governments. While they produce spice such as Carsa-B that threaten our families. While they seek to undermine the rightful Order that gives our people peace of mind."

The revamped newbie academy
This should have been posted months ago, but better late than never, right?! Years and years of area changes, "quick" "fixes", additions, and subtractions left the old academy a jumbled, bloated mess. I spent a good amount of time in the fall interviewing new and veteran players alike about their newbie academy experiences: what works, what didn't, what pissed people off, what questions the RPC got. I spent time looking at syslogs to see where new players disconnected/gave up. We had good conversations in the #newbiehelp Discord room. All that lead to me mapping out what a better academy would look like. Newbies and vets alike worked through plans in the #newbiehelp room with me, then I got to work. The area file was SO bloated, I decided early on it would need to be rebuilt room by room, mob by mob, and ended up cutting the area file size by about 1/3. The new academy should be a streamlined experience for LOTJ newbies. Navigating it should be more straightforward, the rooms should more concisely convey important information, and it should answer some of the more common questions we get on OOC and RPC. The project went live at the start of this timeline, and I recently added a bunch of new updates, hence this change getting posted now. This includes a revamped Banvhar Station. Pre-existing quests have been polished up to make things more coherent, a cargo bay quest aera has been added, and in general, it's now more in line with how quests work in the game. Direct feedback to Walldo. New players in particular, your perspective is extremely valuable. Please let me know what you think about the new academy, what's confusing, what you'd like to see added, etc. Let's keep making it better.
