Item Modifications

Throughout your adventures, you may find items that can be modified. By modifying an item, the player can upgrade the stats of an item and keep that item up-to-date. Items that are modifiable can be identified by having the text CTRL + right-click to modify at the bottom of their tooltip.

Many items are fully upgradeable, meaning that their stats can be fully upgraded. This means that if you find a gear appearance that you really like in the world, you can work to keep its stats up-to-date and relevant throughout most of your adventures. Some items will drop with most of their modification slots empty. Other items come preslotted - the benefits of modding these items will come later, when you decide to upgrade its internal components.

The common mod types, enhancements and mods, can fit in all items. However, 'Armoring' can only upgrade wearable equipment, 'Hilts' can only upgrade lightsabers and melee weapons, and 'Barrels' can only upgrade pistols. These special mods are also responsible for upgrading the core stats of the item (the armor rating of wearable gear, or the damage output of a weapon). Color crystals are another special kind of mod - these rarer modifications can be used to change the color of your lightsaber or blaster bolts.

Resolve

The Resolve system protects individual players from having their character repeatedly controlled by enemy players inside Player vs Player combat.

Each character possesses a Resolve resource bar, visible above the character in his or her nameplate, next to the portrait on the targeting window, and in the group window. When a character is the target of an enemy stun, sleep, knockdown, blind, or ballistic effect, that character gains an amount of resolve points. This value is based on the type of effect and its duration, with stronger effects like stun and knockdown generating more resolve than weaker effects like sleeps and blinds. Additionally, if there are control effects currently active on the target, subsequent control effects add a smaller amount of resolve based on the strength and remaining duration of those effects.

Gaining resolve points fills up the character's resolve with a purple bar. Once the resolve bar fills completely up the bar turns white and the character becomes immune to further control effects. When all current control effects expire the resolve bar begins to decay to zero resolve, at which point the character once again can be controlled and the building process starts anew.

Set bonuses are another way for you to improve your character. Some equipment your character comes across in their journey will be part of a set. Activating a Set Bonus is as easy as simultaneously equipping a few pieces of equipment from the same set - doing so unlocks special benefits granted by the equipment set.

Unlocking a benefit might require as few as two pieces from a set to be equipped, while additional benefits might require several more pieces to be equipped before unlocking.

As your character explores the galaxy, you're sure to discover a wide variety of set bonuses - some of which will suit your character perfectly for the things they do best!

Sith Inquisitor

The Sith Inquisitor is a master of the dark side of the Force. Inquisitors overwhelm their targets with Force Lightning and lightsabers alike.

Primary Attribute: Willpower

Willpower increases the damage and critical chances of the Inquisitor's Melee and Force powers. This remains so for the Assassin, while the Sorcerer's Willpower increases Force damage and healing powers instead.

Advanced Classes (Available at level 10): Sith Sorcerer and Sith Assassin

Sith Sorcerer (Damage, Healing): Sorcerers unleash Force Lightning from a distance, disintegrating their targets with powers like Lightning Strike and Crushing Darkness. Sorcerers skilled in Corruption can twist dark side energies to unnaturally prolong their lives and the lives of their allies.

Sith Assassin (Damage, Defense): Assassins are deceptive and manipulative Force wielders. Trained with stealth and double-bladed lightsabers, an Assassin can sneak in close to finish targets with acrobatic lightsaber moves and deadly lightning attacks. Assassins embracing Darkness can shroud themselves in dark side powers that obscure sight and leverage the defensive capabilities of a double-bladed lightsaber to harden their defenses.

Social Points

When you adventure with other players, you earn social points. Social points are earned primarily by talking to NPCs while in a group with other players. You will earn points faster by being in larger groups and by winning rolls in conversations. However, any social points you accrue will not actually be awarded to you until you turn in the mission.

As you earn more social points, your status in the social tiers will also advance. Open your character sheet ('C' by default) to view your current social tier. Mousing over the progress bar will show you your progress towards the next tier.

Advancing in social tiers will allow you to purchase and use social items found throughout the world. These will most frequently be found on vendors marked as 'social vendors' throughout your adventures. Most of what they will sell are unique outfits appropriate to the planet you are on, but in some cases, they may also have a few surprises!

Space Combat

Offensive Systems:
Blaster cannons are the primary weapon system of most starships, and can be fired continuously. However, targets equipped with ray shielding cannot be damaged by blaster fire--these targets pulse blue when hit. Secondary weapons must be used against such targets.

Missile launchers are a common secondary weapon system. Missile targets can be designated (or "painted") by a ship's target lock-on system, allowing multiple missiles to be fired at different targets simultaneously.

With enough investment, it is possible to equip starships with powerful proton torpedo launchers.

Defensive Systems:
Shields are a ship's first line of defense against damage. When upgraded with a regenerator, shields gradually repair themselves over time as long as the SHIP'S BLASTER CANNONS AREN'T FIRING. Ion cannon blasts--identifiable by their distinctive blue energy trails--can temporarily disable shield systems on impact, so it is critical to avoid them.
