View Full Version : Breakdown Items: Component Values??

01-04-2005, 07:20 AM
I picked up the Prima strategy guide and they have a listing for all the weapons, armor, etc. in the game. Everything has a "Breakdown Component Value" which I assume to be the number of components you would get for breaking down that item. Problem is, in the game everything has a "component value" of 1. I've tried different characters (Bao-Dur, Goto, etc. My jedi guardian has pitiful skills) and there is no change. If Obsidian left this out they screwed up big time. It's an absolute waste trying to create upgrades for your equipment (anything good at least).
I've also noticed that many upgrades don't stack. (EX. nextor crystal 2x critical range + beam gems lens keen only give a 17-20 critical range, should be 15-20)
Also certain force powers that are supposed to provide a defense bonus do not. Speed Burst provides no bonus to Defense. Force Aura does provide bonus to saving throws but the Defense bonus it promises ain't there
I can't believe they would release a game this flawed. I was excited about the improved item creation in KOTOR2 but this just ruins it. I may just wait for the pc release to really play it out
Any feedback would be helpful

This really should be posted in the Telos Tourist bureu as that forum is for KOTOR2 while republic newsfeed is for KOTOR1

We already have two threads about component value:

Please continue the discussion in the existing threads :)

Breakdown value depends on your main PC skills.

Unfortunately, some LS force powers are bugged. If you want to discuss this, you may want to start a new thread with a corresponding title. I am closing this one in order to avoid confusion.
