SWG Star Wars Galaxies Jedi
Become a Jedi is no easy task, not easy at all. It requires a lot of hard work and patience, some might even say it requires the real determination of a Jedi to become one in Star Wars Galaxies. A great place with the latest info on being Jedi is at the Skryer Forum, but we'll give you a run-down of how it's done here:
First to even gain access to your force powers, you have to unlock your Force Sensitive Character Slot. This is a character that can use the force powers skill tree, ordinary characters can not. Unlocking this slot is not simple in itself as it requires you to master certain skills which differ from player to player. The best way to find out what skills you have to master is to collect holocrons which will help you find out which skills you need to master.
Once you have unlocked your Force Sensitive Character Slot, you can then go about building your new jedi. There are 3 skill trees to go through, Jedi Padawan, Jedi Knight and Jedi Master. Also depending on which way you go, you can become a Jedi or a Dark Sith. Be wary, because as a Jedi, you are automatically on the Rebel side and the Empire may place a bounty on your head. Using your force powers in front of others will allow them to kill you without any penalty, so only use them with those you trust. Probably the most difficult aspect of becoming a Jedi is that your character has perma-death, meaning when you die, you die and your character gets deleted. The developers have allowed for 3 safety deaths to compensate for uncontrollable aspects such as disconnections and computers crashes, but 3 is all you get. Once you get to the Jedi Master rank though, you won't have perma-death anymore and will live on in glowing blue as in the movies.
Only recently have a few people unlocked their Force Sensitive Character Slot and started on the road to becoming a Jedi. The path is very difficult, so if you ever do achieve the Jedi Master rank, you know you are one of a kind.
