If you want to be a strong Jedi, stay at level two non-Jedi. Then you get to level 18 Jedi.

The Doctor's suggestion is the only real option but you'll struggle to get off Taris at level 2.

Personally, for me, I enjoy playing Taris. Here's one of my big reasons...

spoiler:
It shows me that Revan can get the job done without using the Force, and that there is more to Revan than his/her ability to use the Force and a lightsaber.

Uh, Canderous, when a post stays inactive for, say, three months, chances are the question was answered to the poster's satisfaction. Just so you know.

IMO Taris sucks. I hate this level. I am playing it the second time and I think it is worse than the first time. Very strange. My char is a strong soldier at level 4 by now. But I am fighting with the long sword and get beaten so badly by the monsters etc. What's wrong. Maybe I have chosen the wrong skills this time. Are you using the sword or the blasters to kill all enemies off? I replayed the level several times to get the best results, but in the meantime I am fed up.

Well, Venom, that really sounds weird to me. I have no problems with that.

Does anyone of you have some hints for best skilling the char? Would really appreciate you help.

Use the Prototype Vibroblade and Long Sword or Mission's Blade. Add more strength and dexterity when you create your character.

dude, u shud use dexterity, then use blasters to get through taris. the dex gives good saves and good blaster use, then, once u get ur lightsaber, the game will use either dex or strength, which ever is stronger, to determine damage. i actually dont put any point into strength at creation.

had a spoiler, but i decided i didnt want to ruin it.

Every time I play KotOR...

Also I noticed that if you cross classes like Soldier/Consular or Scourndrel/Guardian it actually creates a weaker character.

To max out things with your characters you should stick with symbiotic classes;
  • Soldier/Guardian
  • Scout/Sentinel
  • Scoundrel/Consular
This way the 2 classes merge together as the Jedi class is an extension of the Non-Jedi class...

Just my 2 cents!

In a computer game magazine I have read that the class soldier and consular should be the best to complete the game. Well, I did it but it was still a bid hard to kill Malak.

No, you can still do all the quests and keep your xp points for later. Just don't use the level up screen.

I actually stopped doing this after discovering the padawan mod. It's actually not too hard to do LS. DS is a pain, mostly because of the boss fight with the Hidden Bek guy (I can't believe I forgot his name. Has it been that long?)

I think it has, I can't remember his name either!

Though I can't bring myself to try a Padawan Mod, I just like having Taris be a Jedi-free zone. Of course if I took my l33t heavy blaster aresenal away that might change... hmm.

This guy is using Meelee Weaponry so Putting strength in the Character isn't a waste it gives you more power during Meelee Combat. Strength for power behind your attack and Dexterity makes it harder for your enemy to hit you so Dexterity for Defense. So he should put Strength and Dex first then everything else.

i no that, im saying scrap the melee weapons, use blasters for taris. that way u get all the points ud put toward strength for other stuff. dex is better because not only does it help def, it gives combat damage for lightsabers. therefore, its more efficient to sacrifice melee weapon use on taris for better attribute allotment, and a better jedi later on.

The easy way I have found to do it is to make Big Z your meat shield, Mission or Carth Pistols and you as the Grenadier.

Neither could I, so I looked up the name (Brejik) on Gamebanshee.
