How in the world do you people get off of Taris as a level 2? Between the rakghouls and such, and then eventually having to fight Davik and his people, how do you do it? A little help would be wonderful. :lsduel:

invest heavily in frag grenades! the lob them from the furthest you can. best is to move everyone to furthest distance, then ave all three throw a grenade at the same or near to each other targets. as far as davik, forget calo. have all three throw as many grenades as possible at davik.

i did it myself-as a level 2 soldier.
i had serious trouble fighting bendak, took me at least 20 times.
if u use zaalbar and carth mostly (as melee), they can win most fights w/ u just backing up w/ ranged.
davik and calo were hard, just remember to always use lots of grenades.

So does escaping Taris as a level 2 PC really make much of a difference? Sure you get more Jedi levels, but is it worth having to replay these fights 20 times?? I'm definitely going to try to "slow" my level progression during Taris, but level 2 seems WAY low. Do you just avoid all side-quests and only do what's necessary to leave Taris? And how do you make up for that experience deficiency later in the game? (It seems you'd have to "catch up" with Jedi levels, and the only way I can think of to do so would be to spend a lot of time in the 'wild' areas where you're going to spawn random encounters...?)

what you do is just avoid leveling up, and it does make a difference in terms of force powers. And you can still do all the side quest it just keeps adding them upOnce you become a jedi you can get a ton of level ups and force powers, it made my guy a tank right away

i made it through all the Tarisian mission except killing Bendak Starkiller on level three.

I got off of taris last night with my level 2 scout....it was a bit rough at spots, but I didn't have to play anyone part more then 3 times.

Stupid Gadon is a monster in melee :P I thought he was supposed to be blind?

Anyways, I beat Davik and Calo the first try. I just rained about 15 frag grenades onto davik and that was that!

Now I get to level up about 6 times!

yeah, right before i got to Davik, i looked. required to level up was like 10000 XP and i had like 80000 or something like that. it was kinda cool. sometimes it seems like an eternity before i get enough for the next level (upwards of like 15 or 16 thousand) but then i look at it when i get done with the game and i have like 219,000. so its like 25-30 thousand Xp that you get after you hit level 20 that aren't used or needed.

heh, yeah....mine said

needed for next level : 3000 xp
Current XP: 30,018

to kill davik and calo, i just concentrated on calo, and then when he got to a certain hp davik is killed in an explosion and calo has the thing fall on him
