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.

Senator Kisari Steps Down
A press release was received by the GNI news desk this evening direct from the Senator of Coruscant's office. Stating that although he is proud of what the New Republic has accomplished to date, Senator Kisari has decided that public office is no longer the best option available to him, and will be stepping down. Following this announcement, the Coruscant electorate office is encouraging any interested parties to begin campaigning for the Senatorial seat.

Ithor elects Velsa Illean to the New Republic Senate
Trumpets sound through the distance as streamers and confetti fly through the expanse of the herdship Cloud Mother. Thousands of Ithorians stand before a raised platform, talking excitedly amongst themselves before a female Ithorian steps from behind a curtain and into view. Thunderous applause and cheers greet her arrival, silenced by a raised hand and a warm gleam in the Ithorians eyes as she draws in a deep breath to speak. "People of Ithor," her melodic voice calls out, easily carrying across the masses as she looks lovingly over those gathered, "Friends of the Republic, it is my greatest honor to stand before you today and receive such warmth and joy. I, Velsa Illean, am proud to become your next Senator! Ithor, as so many other worlds has, suffered greatly in the past few years. From rule by the iron hand of the Morgukai to a plague upon the galaxy itself. Mother Jungle herself was caught in the horrid disaster that was the invasion and infection of her children, and I know I speak for all when I say we weep for what was done to her." An eerie, mournful silence falls over the crowd, many watching the woman with remorse and sorrow. -- "But Mother Jungle is strong, Her Children are strong! For every mark upon Her she will blossom again twice over! For every one of us lost we will find two new brothers and sisters to nurture and care for. Let us not dwell upon the loss of life, let us not hold on to sorrow and regret. We must rise above that which has harmed us, we must take the teachings of Mother Jungle and become twice as strong as we were before, twice as joyful, twice as caring for all those around us. It is with this sentiment that I stand before you no longer as the wanderer between herdships that I was before, spreading joy and friendship to all whom I met, but instead as someone you, the people of ithor, have chosen to aid not only in our own recovery but the galaxy itself! We will stand tall amongst those who can not! We will help this galaxy regrow from war and plague! We will see two seeds planted for every one taken and see life blossom again where it was thought lost! I stand now, in acceptance of your will to name me Senator and I will serve you with every fiber of my being. But above all else, above every individual, We are Ithor!" The camera sweeps away as thunderous applause once again erupts from those present, leaving the image of a happy Ithorian woman raising a hand to wave to those watching from afar before cutting out.

As we look toward finding ways to make planet management less onerous, we're experimenting with a few concepts to help smooth out this process. Starting with divorcing SETLEADER from the Diplomacy skilltree. For now, it has been set to level 1 in the Diplomacy Skillset to testdrive it out.
