Which force power do you think it's the least powerful and most useless in the game? I'm talking about the highest tiers.

I think Improved Energy Resistance. I never get this power, what do you need it for when you have energy shields that blows it out of the water? It only absorbs the first 20 points of damage from heat, cold, sonic and electrical if I remember right, so it's arguably worse than the regular energy shield.

i have voted for the advanced lightsaber throw because when you are being attacked by multiple opponents it leaves you open to blasters and similar attacks

You should give it a try Grishnakh. It actually absorbs the first 20 points of damage from each attack throughout the duration of the Power, not just 20 points total.

I thought the same thing until I tried it and noticed a substantial benefit. PLUS, the Improved version affects your whole party.

Suckiest power? hmmmm... my vote is Force Breach. By the time I remember to use the power I've usually knocked the baddie (or goodie ..hehe) to near death anyways. Of course I mainly play Guardians so brute force has it's bonuses ;)

though I agree with Aleggy as well...why throw my lightsaber away when I can usually hack my opponent down to nothing by the time the lightsaber would return to me.....

Thanks for the info. I still think it's probably the worst power though, it doesn't protect against energy or melee attacks and grenades are not that big a threath.

I chose Force Valor. I know it to be good, but I always found it inconvinient to go down and press it while in heated combat.

Agreed! This power needs a lot of work to even be near accurate... or useful. :D

throw lightsaber would be so much better if it would swirl around your character and hit about 3-5 seperate enemies. :D

Well advanced throw hits up to three different enemies in a radius of 5 yards.

Force storm blows it out of the water. It does the same amount of damage and it hits everyone in a 10 yard radius from the target.

what i meant was similar to the lightsaber swirling thing that you can do on JA with duel lightsabers. i think they called that move 'barrier' or something. anyway, that move blocks blaster attacks and will slice through any opponents that approach you. thats what i meant. ;)

lightsaber throw was useless
