. . . I have a save from imminently before the point of no return. I knew I had that save the entire time last night, but all of a sudden it seems so much more appealing now that the session is over and I reached peak frustration. I'd have to re-do a LOT . . . but I'd have a lightsaber.

Anyway, I went into the save because this is almost certainly very close to the build I had when I fought Visas. It seems absurd to me that I can have so much WIS and CHA and still not be able to use Stasis reliably on Visas. Maybe I just wasn't getting the good Force rolls, like Naz says. Really bad luck. I could swear it was working like . . . 1/4 of the time.

Does Force Stasis count as stun or paralysis? Because it occurs to me that if she benefits from the Force Immunity feats before joining the party, that could really diminish stun chance. I'd think it would just make her immune to stuns (and being afraid), but if you were able to stun her that's not the case.

if you have buffs apply them before the fight. IIRC all buffs applied before the fight will stay active. You should also have a lot of stims too so shoot up like its a Fallout challenge run.

It is done. Finally. A lightsaber. As a result of the highly specialized talents of some of the crew, my saber is already ridiculously strong. The only real improvement it needs now is a better color crystal, green is not satisfactory.

It's pretty but it doesn't look like something a force user would wear. Except maybe a Sith who isn't bothered by the armor's apparent weight.

Why does Kreia have to be such an absolute creep? Did the Jedi kids pick on you when you were young or something? This lady screams of a person who's had their head dunked into a toilet too many times.

I respect people like you who actually liked the movie and are going to see it more than people who complain and go to see it anyways not doing anything to change what they see as bad.

I officially love the build I've made. I'm a Jedi Master with light side purity, heavy on the Wisdom and Charisma . . . that uses Force Lightning. And now that I've discovered how unbelievably viable it is to use Lightning, I'm going to branch out and grab other Dark Side powers.
