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.

Death Watch Promises Mandalorian "Peace"
As the people of Mandalore attempt to recover from the devastating blows dealt to them by an unknown threat, a note was found tacked to the stature of Mandalore the First. The note read as follows: Years of misguided outsider influence have left Mandalorians suckling at the teat of foreigners who have no respect for the Mandalorian way. Be it the Republic, Sith or even the automatons of the Morgukai, Mandalorians were deprived of their true nature...their true purpose. That, my friends, has come to a swift end. From now on, Mandalore will be ruled by the Death Watch. We will return Mandalorian culture to it's true nature and will swiftly put down any and all who stand in our way. We will bring this galaxy Mandalorian "peace".

Oyu'baat Massacre
Following the savage attacks on Concordia, a meeting was called between the leaders of all the Mandalorian factions to investigate the incident. The meeting, which took place at Oyu'baat, was nearing it's conclusion when the loud sound automatic gunfire was heard from the second floor. Patrons on the lower level rushed to the second floor meeting rooms where they discovered the bloodied corpses of the faction leaders along with members of their entourage. No evidence or discernible traces could be found on the scene other than the use of high-grade military weaponry. With the death of the faction heads, a vacuum of power has been created in the Mandalore System leaving many of the residents wondering what will happen next...

The Battle of Mandalore
This Sunday an event that will determine the fate of Mandalore will take place at 1PM PST (4PM EST). Given the nature of Mandalorian culture, this event will be LIVE FIRE meaning that actual death is a possibility. Let me repeat that: Permadeath is a possibility in this event. There will be an active tracker of certain in game turn-in objects that will be factored into the final result of the event. Rewards will be given out based on participation.

New players, accounts, the website, and email
A quirk of our website CMS is that an email address needs to be associated before an account can log in. This is a recurring point of confusion for new players. To smooth things along, new players making an account will receive a message about needing to associate in order to log in. We've also updated a line here and there to explain this.
