I usually play with darkside force powers and I am constantly falling prey to the pull/backstab combo. I was wondering if there are anyways to get up from being pulled down to avoid the backstab/slash. I have tried rolling, back-flipping and double tapping the jump key, all with little to no success. I would rather not be forced to go lightside and absorb. Any help would be appreciated.

I am not a darkside user, but I have heard numerous things about Dark Rage being able to help. I guess the increased speed and increased defense helps....

The increased defense of dark rage does help but it won't save you all the time and it usually takes off enough damage leaving you dead to a saber throw or kick to the face.

I have success with kicking them out of the combo (when they go into a force pull go into a jump/kick- if you time it right they might be the ones on the floor).- learn kick it is invaluable.

Switching into heavy stance and using DFA when you are force pulled also works- force pull/backstab spammers have pulled me while in the DFA animation right into them.

My suggestion?

The best defense is a good offense- force pull and backstab them first.
