Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is not a role play, but still includes an upgradeable skill system that will make lead protagonist Cal more powerful and acquire new skills. Mastering the skills you learn is crucial to your success, especially when it comes to the later bosses of the game. To complete your mission, you need to know which skills to choose because a standard playthrough probably does not contain all available unlocked skills. With this Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order skill guide, we explain the process and tell you which skills to focus on.
How to get new skills
You can only unlock new skills in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order while you are at a meditation point, this are the & # 39; bonfires & # 39; of the game and are fairly generous throughout every planet. Once you have found one, you can spend all the available skill points you need to purchase new skills.
You do not have access to all skills from the beginning. Keep playing the story and you will have access to skills at pre-planned points. Your skills tree often expands as soon as you reach these points, drastically changing your available movements and attacks.
Skill points are earned by almost everything you do in the game, including defeating enemies and finding collectibles. Don't worry about editing & # 39; & # 39; of points, because you have enough to work with. If you are killed, your progress to your next skill point will be reset, but you can get it back by damaging the enemy who killed you or returning to your death point if you were killed by an environmental hazard.
Overhead Slash and Leaping Slash (1 point and 2 points respectively): Overhead Slash is a powerful light sword attack that can instantly kill weaker enemies and bosses inflict considerable block meters. Leaping Slash adds a second attack at the end of the combo, which can cause additional damage after breaking their block meter with the previous attack.
Dash Strike and Improved Dash (1 point each): Quickly close the distance to an enemy and perform a powerful slash with Dash Strike. You can jump at the end of the dashboard to jump over the enemy while you are attacking. Improved Dash extends the range of the attack.
Sprint attack (1 point): Attack while you sprint to perform a powerful single light sword attack. This is a good option if you no longer have Force power and still have to close the gap of a boss in a hurry.
Evasive Kick (1 point): Perform a quick kick to dodge your enemy after an attack. This movement is especially useful after avoiding a boss's non-blockable attack – you can see it because they start to glow red.
Mastery light sword (3 points): Increases all damage to the light sword. Against bosses from the late game, the difference that it makes can mean victory or death, and it will limit your need to use additional Stim-healing items in battle. ] Survival skills, improved survival skills and expert survival skills (1 point, 1 point and 2 points respectively): These increase Cal & # 39; s maximum lifespan. You must unlock the first layer before moving to the next. This is not the only way to increase your overall life – you can also find special power-up secrets in the game – but it is almost required to defeat the later bosses.
Improved Stims and Personalized Stims (1 point and 2 points): These improve the healing power of individual Stim buses. At the start of the game they only heal halfway through, and the effectiveness will seem lower as you get more general health. Upgrade your Stims as quickly as possible.
Superior Blocking (1 point): This allows Cal to block more attacks before his guard breaks. Against bosses and enemies with very small window windows and remote enemies, this will be extremely useful.
Agile Deflection (1 point): This automatically blocks blaster bolts when Cal sprints, allowing you to focus on your primary target without immediately worrying yourself with nearby Stormtroopers.
Precision Evade (2 points): You can delay enemies briefly and reclaim some Force after performing a Precision Evade. It's great for charging your Force meter against larger bosses with non-blockable attacks.
Force Attunement, Greater Force Attunement and Ultimate Force Attunement (1 point, 1 point and 2 points, respectively): This skill increases Cal & # 39; s maximum strength, and is not only used for classic skills such as Force Push and Force Pull, but also for certain powerful light sword attacks. You want it to be fully upgraded by the time you reach the end, because some of your late-game attacks take a lot of Force and are reliable for causing massive damage to bosses.
Mass Push and Howling Push (1 point and 2 points): Hold down the Force Push button to send various enemies back and spread even larger enemies. When you come across Stormtroopers on a ledge, you can use this to turn them all off immediately. You want to be more careful of bosses if you try, but it can help to reduce weaker enemies before you come across big goals.
Enhanced Force Recovery (1 point): This allows you to regain more Force when you defeat an enemy and get a Force back after you hit a blocking enemy. This is one of the most important skills for the bosses, because you have to hold up your Force meter to eventually break their guard.
