View Full Version : Dark Jedi

05-13-2002, 01:26 AM
Whats to stop the majority of people falling to the dark side? Yoda was always warning against it, but he also said it was easier, more seductive etc. And it's more destructive(which is what some people would love).

Is that how things are meant to be? A majority of dark jedi and only a handful of good ones? Or will there be some serious downsides to being evil? Every man and his gerbil appears to want a Dark Jedi membership card.

Well, I think they are dealing with that in part by making people become Jedi first and then fall to the dark side. That way it isn't easier.

05-13-2002, 02:30 AM
I thought of that, but there's a lot of people around who want to be a dark jedi. A lot more than who want to be a light jedi. Or maybe they're just more visible.

Oh I think it'll balance out, probably each type of jedi, light or dark will have some special abilities that the other doesn't.

There will have to be something that distinguishes them, if the dark jedi can be more distructive (e.g. lightning) then the light jedi will have something like super healing or something like that.

My opinion is that a dark jedi will be more effective on their own while a light jedi would be better in a group.

well i read somewhere that in order to be a dark jedi... you first need to become a lihght jedi. i think this is the case.. so a lot of the folks will not even become a jedi.. so there wont be that much of a problem :D

05-13-2002, 11:40 AM
And I believe that that is what the dev's are thinking.

hahha... great minds think alike :D

Well it would be unrealistic if they did it any other way....That's how it happened in the movies, that how it should happen in the games.

Will Dark Jedi live longer? Or Light Jedi?
Do people actually die after a perio in their live?

05-13-2002, 03:14 PM
no, no one dies from old age or just being around for a long period of time. Other than possible force power benefits such as heal, no one will live longer than anyone else or die sooner than anyone else.

Nice, and what about respawn? Or don't we know that yet?

05-13-2002, 03:25 PM
We don't know that yet, or at least I don't. I know in a pvp war if you die you spawn outside of the battlefield and cannot reenter until the battle is over, but other than that nothing. It will most likely be random or at the start of a "dungeon" area (supposing you were to die in a "dungeon" area) though.

Well, first thing I'm gonna do is go and make fun of Jabba :p

05-13-2002, 03:29 PM
Well at least that's a safe goal....lol. I think I may end up being in the hutt faction, either that or rebel. If I'm in the hutt, I'll be sure to shoot you down =)

First thing i'm gonna do is go to Naboo and find Jar-Jar and kill him

05-13-2002, 03:33 PM
That's what I'm talking about. I want an ewok-skin blanket and a gungan skin rifle case. It'd probably be waterproof, don't you think? =)

Hm, I might drop Droid Making and go bounty hunting with you :D

05-13-2002, 03:43 PM
Haha, it's up to you man. You have plenty of time to decide, and you can always make two characters.

05-13-2002, 05:02 PM
haha....well, I don't rightly know what ships will be in the expansion, but you'll be able to do all of that (except maybe not in those ships) =) God this game is going to be awesome.

There goes my precious x-wing I bought for 75.000 credits!

not to mention my astromech.... :(

05-16-2002, 01:30 PM
So you'ld better spend the cash to insure that X-wing.

What? What do you mean my policy doesn't cover attack by pirates?

Will we be able to steal ships? Not only from the Empire or so but also from other players? Cuz' that way I could be a real pain in the ass :cool:

05-16-2002, 03:49 PM
No. But to be on the safe side I'll blast you if you come within 50 meters of my ship. :p

We were just having the steeling discussion in another thread. The dev's have said there will be no steeling in SWG.

not even looting of a nother players dead body? if the items are not insured that is

05-16-2002, 07:23 PM
No I'm pretty sure that will be in. That's in most online games.
