Dual-Wield Single-Blade Lightsabers. I'm a bit of a powergamer, blasters suck too badly for me to even consider using them dominantly, too bad because I'm really sick of playing a Jedi with a Lightsaber, and Vibroblades aren't all that much better.

Double-Bladed Lightsaber and lightsaber. I keep getting pounded when I use a double-bladed lightsaber, but I still find it more entertaining.

Hey Wait! Are there any double-bladed lightsabers in The Sith Lords? I don't remember.

Yes. However, you deal more damage with dual sabers.


Chapter 12 of A Soul Adrift is out.

Short stories:
T'katlu: On the planet Felucia, a young apprentice of the Dark Side thinks back to the beginning of her training as she lies in wait for her prey...

All the Time: After four years in the Unknown Regions, the Exile returns to the known galaxy to visit an old enemy.

Broken: A master of the Dark Side finds himself about to lose the one thing he cares about--and he will do anything to stop her from endangering herself.

Either heavy guns or duals...

Actually, I gun enemies down with a gun until they approach me, and if the attack me in close range, I switch to duals...

Oh, and I also use stealth+"mines_in_front_of_enemy" and grenades

Meh, dual wielding is much better. You get to use more upgrade crystals that way.

Double bladed saber for maximum damage. Usually whichever color complements my outfit.

I'm all about the melee attacks. Start out with the swords/blades, then use single saber rest of the game.

PC=dual blades!
i love the green-purple color combination. in k2, viridian-purple. first time i played k2 i didnt bother too much about all those upgrades and all. second time round i was enthralled! i sat there for ages contemplating what upgrades to install/ make. in the second playthrough, i had an actual play style and strategy for combat. so i specially chose everything for the PC - tailoring skills, abilities, upgrades, classes, *clothes*, weapons, powers,... *everything* to go for my play style, rather than "ooh, that sounds neat. *buy*"
and it worked. spectacularly.
now i find it hard to think of choosing another class other than sentinel/watchman because i love having all those skills!
i also made different sabers for different purposes. some to take down droids, some for blaster deflect, some for plain super energy attack...
the first time i missed the 'exile' crystal. second time i had my primary saber with as many different attack types as possible (more chance of more damage), and the other saber with the exile crystal and other 'bolster' crystals to enhance my attributes, and it worked really well.
if you're wondering, i used swknights.com's watchman strat guide as the base.



mfw I read the Revan novel

it is not a cry of joy.

I use a blaster rifle throughout the beggining of the game, then I switch to single bladed saber. The blasters just give a better gameplay to me. Plus they look cooler.

Mind you, I have a metric ton of mods.

Kairi/Revan - I start her out with the prototype vibroblade in the main hand, and an Echani blade (the balanced one you buy from Keebla) in the off-hand.

Once she hits Dantooine, I'll change out to RedHawke's Revan's green sabers (short in the off-hand). After Leviathan, I occasionally switch to a double-bladed violet, since the story in my head has Malak destroying Kairi's saber.

Armor: I have a custom armor I made for her that uses the Darth Bandon appearance, and is awarded after the swoop race. It's explained as the Bek's wager on the race. After Leviathan, I switch to Fallen One's robes, and switch to RedHawke's Revan the White robes when storming the Star Forge.

Carth - I have a mod which amps up his pistols to about the level of the Cassus Fett blaster and puts one in each hand. Fully upgrade them both. If I cross-class him, he gets either the Knight's Staff, or a double-bladed with a Revan's Heart (Yup, RedHawke's!) crystal. Armor is T7Nowhere's Carth Infiltrator Suit. It looks like an all-black version of his regular clothing.

Mission - I modded her to have Maverick's Mission's Blaster Rifle upon her recruitment. If I cross-class her, I give her a Mantle of the Force double-bladed saber with Firkrann and Jenruax crystals (droid-killers). Armor is either the Baragwin Shadow Armor or RedHawke's Vao Robes.

Zaalbar - Don't bother with the bowcaster. I found a "Zaalbar's items" mod (can't recall author) that gives him a solid, upgradable warblade. Later, it's Bacca's blade in the main hand, and Mission's in the off hand, more for symbolism than anything.

Bastila - RedHawke strikes again with a custom saber for her. I tend to put in a Solari and Krayt Dragon Pearl (the latter, again, for symbolism). The Jedi Royal Guard Miggido robes are her armor.

T3-M4 - RedHawke's Prototype blaster pistols, droid composite armor, a flame thrower and a stun ray or Carbonite projector.

Canderous - RedHawke's Ordo Armor, and his usual BFG with full upgrades. Why mess with perfection?

Juhani: Two Guardian Heart sabers with the most damaging crystals I have on hand. Armor is Svosh's Juahni Dark Robes. They look gorgeous on her and enhance her stealth.

HK-47 - RedHawke's prototype rifle, composite armor, and twin flamethrowers.

Jolee: I can't recall who came up with the Jolee robes and poison saber, but they have my thanks and a permanant spot in my collection.
