I am playing a lightsided Jedi on Xbox, I got inside the secret tomb on Korriban and have faced the visions. for the first vision, it seems like every decision that I take towards the light side have as a sole consequence to have my Character killed for real and me having to start loading from a pre-saved game.
Every decision i take towards the dark side however gets me killed but i can go on.


I have lost a lot of Light side points this way and was at the top before, very frustrating, is that normal?

If you are a lightsider, don't bother using offensive force powers against anyone with a darkside alignment within the tomb. They get a massive saving throw bonus within that area due to the ForceRating. (You can use Force Sight to check their alignment.)

Likewise, use Force Immunity to avoid getting hit with offensive force powers yourself since you take a massive penalty to your saving throws for the same reason. You can't expect to succeed any saving throw in the tomb if you are a strong lightsider, so it's best to avoid having to make them to begin with.

As for the Kreia vs. the Party vision, side with Kreia in the dialog (with the motivation to redeem her) and you should get light side points. When the fight starts and it's too difficult for your character to stay alive, quickly get out of the way and let Kreia handle the fight herself. She should easily be able to beat the attacking party members. Repeat this until the door opens.

It is helpful to position yourself away from the entrance to the room before initiating conversation with "Kreia" in this vision so you won't be closest to the party when the fight starts.

Thanks for the info, I have a problem though
Re 1st vision: I don't have a strong player and I am facing 7 adversaries, no matter whant I try, I get killed. And when the discussion before that was a lightsider one, i get killed for good and have to re-load. Wehereas a pre darksider discussion kills me but i can go on.

Start with casting a stasis field. That should get rid of the five Jedi. Force Wave, lightning or other mass effect spells work fine, too. Unlike Malak they get really bad saves (and it's nice to finally know why :) ). Then use energy resistance or shields and you should have no problems against Malak. You only have to kill him to complete the test. It doesn't matter what happens to the Jedi. Recast stasis field if his minions wake up. Don't worry about your force as it gets replenished after this fight.

Don't talk, just fight!
Use the Force wave to knock the minor NPC's away, then hit the big baddy with your lightsaber using the master blow. Three or four shots like that and he will vanish along with the rest of his crew. You won't lose any points.

Two lightsabers usually come in handy here. Use Furry to hit them quickly. For Malak, use Force Speed, and then hit him with Furries.

@Reclaimer :lol:"Furries?" I know you meant flurries but I got a mental image of furry bunny slippers flying at Malak:lol:
Kidding aside what I do is what pretty much is suggested above. I use stasis, sometimes Force Wave and it imobilizes the minions so as I can concentrate on Malak. Before I start combat, I boost up a it on stims and if my health drops to half or less, I pause and use a life support pack. I'm used to doing this type of combat as this was how I was able to beat Malak in KOTOR.

After several attempts at this I also hit on the winning combination of stasis the minions and go for the beat down on Malak, it's amazing the difference it makes but i have since discovered this in similar games if you kill the main boss first the minions are pretty much a no show.
