SWTOR JEDI KNIGHT BUILD FULL GUIDE

SWTOR Jedi Knight Builds – Why Do You Need One?

(Just A Reminder: All Jedi Knight Builds Here Are Level 50 Builds – Unless Stated Otherwise)

So, you chose to become a Jedi Knight? A symbol of the legacy of the Jedi Order and a beacon of light during dark times. Well, I can’t blame you. Who wouldn’t after seeing Anakin, Luke and Obi Wan in the movies, right? (Just a reminder, Darth Vader was a Jedi Knight once too…)

Seriously though, you have chosen a solid class by choosing the Jedi Knight Class. Armed with arrays of skills, flashy moves and the undying Light Saber in your hand, there is no stopping you from becoming one of the most dominant players in the Star Wars universe. You have benefited from ancient teachings passed down from generation to generation and now is your time to show those Sith Warriors who’s the boss!

Now, to help you move forward in Star Wars The Old Republic, you must first establish a style of play that you must follow (with all your heart) in order to progress through the game. A SWTOR Jedi Knight Spec is something that you must plan for if you don’t want to mess up your time, money and overall game experience in SWTOR. Whether you are looking for a SWTOR leveling guide or a credit guide, it is important that you follow a certain path if you want a sure direction to success. I have met a lot of people who just went and played  MMO games without actually planning for the future of their characters. In the end, they were forced to either fix the big mess through stat/skill resets and re-specs (which is arduous and tiring) or just repeat their characters and start all over again (which is an absolute waste of money and time, don’t you agree?)

SO WHAT SWTOR JEDI KNIGHT BUILDS SUIT YOU BEST?

……………………………………………………………….

The answer to this question depends on what kind of player you are and unfortunately, only you can answer this. Do you want to become an unkillable Jedi Knight Tank that can take on a lot of damage for your comrades? Or do you want to become like Anakin Skywalker (pre-Darth Vader) and dish out as much damage as you can to your enemies by becoming a DPS Jedi Knight? Once you are able to decide on what kind of player you want to be, then you can follow the suggestions on the most effective SWTOR Jedi Knight Specs below.

Additionally, there are also PVP and Leveling Specs in this SWTOR Jedi Knight Guide. Hopefully this list can help you on your journey to become the most powerful SWTOR Jedi Knight and don’t forget to bookmark and share this to your friends! Hope you’ll get something from this!

JEDI KNIGHT TANK SPEC

……………………………………………………………….

If you decide that you want to be the “protector” of your team, becoming  a Jedi Knight Tank is the only path that you should follow.  Of course, you should know by now that there are 2 Advanced Classes available for the Jedi Knight Class, right? (For those of you who still don’t know, it’s Sentinel and Guardian). If you want to follow this Tank Jedi Knight spec, you should NOT go for the Jedi Knight Sentinel advanced class. Having played since beta, I find it almost impossible to make a Jedi Knight Sentinel Tank so I abandoned that fruitless idea. Go for the Jedi Knight Guardian class if you want a Tank Jedi Knight; even the name, “Guardian”, says it all. You simply cannot tank efficiently with a Jedi Sentinel. Drop the Sentinel and follow this Guardian Tank spec, that way you won’t mess your character up.

So, here is the setup for the Jedi Knight Tank Spec for Guardian

JEDI KNIGHT DPS SPEC

……………………………………………………………….

Now, this is where the true potential of a Jedi Knight stands out. Nothing is more dangerous than a Jedi Knight loose (that rhymes!), and being a DPS type of Jedi Knight is definitely scary for your enemies. (For SWTOR and MMO Newbies, DPS simply means Damage-per-second, which is the rate of how much damage you are able to dish out over a given period of time. The higher, the deadlier.)

Now, I have prepared two SWTOR Jedi Knight Character Specs for you: A Jedi Knight Sentinel DPS and a Jedi Knight Guardian DPS. If you ask my advice, I’d say go for the FULL DPS Jedi Knight Sentinel. Just think about it my friend… A Jedi Knight Sentinel does not have enough defense to last long in battles. So in order to be effective in a team clash, you have to abandon all care in the world and just go for the maximum damage possible. If you choose a DPS spec for a Jedi Knight, you will always be on the front line and you’ll eventually die anyway, so just take as many enemies as you can. Go all out! If you don’t want this kind of game play, then I’d suggest you just go for a Tank Jedi Knight then because this DPS spec is definitely not meant for someone who is scared of holding Lightsabers.

JEDI KNIGHT PVP SPEC

……………………………………………………………….

Of course, SWTOR wouldn’t be fun without some PVP love, right? If you are like me (who only lives for the end game content), then finding a spot-on SWTOR Jedi Knight Build to help you dominate the SHlT, i mean SITH, is definitely something that you must accomplish. Of course, it helps if you use the Hotkeys instead of clicking each and every skill that you use (LOL, if you play MMO and you click your skills, YOU DON’T PLAY MMO!). Good thing that fate brought you here at SWTORDominance, where you will learn everything you need to know about building your PVP Spec for a Jedi Knight.

SWTOR Aeon Guide

As always, we have two Jedi Knight spcs for you here: one for the Jedi Knight Guardian and another one for the Jedi Knight Sentinel. If you have been reading my guide faithfully, you will know that I prefer to use the Sentinel for DPS and the Guardian for Tanking. For these PVP specs, we might have to abdicate the thought for defense just momentarily though. When using the Jedi Knight Sentinel, the Burst from using the Combat tree is a great way to issue a crowd control when PVP’ing that is why I prefer to do this build for the Sentinel. On the other hand, the Jedi Knight Guardian that we have here also left out defense in exchange for damage. This is an optimal “pressure” build to catch those healers and other opponents foolish enough to come close, but with the help of Protector and Commanding Awe, you will still get to come out of the warzone alive (hopefully).

Now, get your pen and paper and write these Jedi Knight Specs down! (Like a BOSS LOL)

JEDI KNIGHT SPECS PVE LEVELING

……………………………………………………………….

Actually, I should have put this build first and foremost because you won’t be able to create those Tank, DPS and PVP Jedi Knight spec without reaching level 50 first, right? But what’s done is done, so now I am placing here at the last part of my guide the Jedi Knight Builds that you should use for PVE (player vs environment) fast-leveling purposes. This SWTOR leveling guide can really help you jack up the experience points needed in order to max out your character as quickly as possible so pay attention!

For the Sentinel Build, we are focusing more on the Watchman Tree because it is the most effective specs as far as PVE is concerned. For the Guardian spec however, our skill points will go mostly in the Vigilance Tree to ensure efficient damage-taking capabilities while also dishing out decent damage. Both Jedi Knight Builds listed below will have 7 more points left, so just allot them any way you wish, depending on the choices and paths you are taking in-game. So, let’s cut the talking and get this Leveling Spec for A SWTOR Jedi Knight laid out!
