Star Wars Jedi: Survivor it has 25 perks for you to discover, and they can be equipped by interacting with a meditation point. Naturally, with only a limited number of perk slots, you’ll want to make sure you’re using the ideal options. Here’s our guide to help you with the best perks in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor.
The best perks of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor
Star Wars Jedi Survivor perks are similar to passive abilities. You can acquire them by interacting with blue crystals. Still, it’s worth noting that some of these provide boosts to your max HP, Force, and XP, while others grant new buffs. For stat boosts, you can check out our Essence Crystal Locations Guide.
Once obtained, you can equip them to get a boon. However, keep in mind that each benefit has a corresponding cost in terms of slots. By default, there are three perk slots. You can get an additional one by trading Datadiscs with Zee the Droid in Pyloon’s Saloon. As for the other bonus slots, you will have to discover them as you explore the game world. As such, we’re looking at a few select options to make the whole effort more manageable.
Resilience – Found while exploring your first High Republic Jedi Temple, the Resilience buff remains useful for most of the campaign. It only costs a slot and increases your block meter, allowing you to mitigate and deflect more melee hits and ranged projectiles. This is great if you like to use the dual wield stance as it has less block resistance.
– Shatter costs two slots. It is found in the Sodden Grotto, a small cave system that is near Rambler’s Reach in Koboh. You will be able to interact with the crystal after defeating Rancor, one of the terrifying legendary beasts in the game. Shatter enhances your ability to break enemies’ guard with your attacks. As such, successive strikes will see them miss more often.
– The Wisdom perk may cost three slots, but it’s one of the best perks in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor. This is because it increases XP gains from kills. As such, all you need to do is keep hitting the unfortunate enemies and earn more XP to receive skill points.
– The player is more expensive in four slots. However, it does provide a bigger XP boost compared to Wisdom. The downside is that you will no longer be able to use the Restore on Death action (i.e. recover lost XP).
This is great for XP farming runs where you just take out the same groups of enemies and respawn them via meditation circles. It’s not something you’d equip when facing elites or bosses. In any case, you can pick it up after beating the Sutaban Alpha, another Legendary Beast/Legendary Enemy in the game.
In addition to the above, note that you also receive three additional benefits once you unlock the New Game Plus mode. These don’t take up a perk slot, so you can combine them with your regular picks. You can get more information in our New Game Plus Guide.
