Advanced Classes

Class Set Bonuses

Descent of the Fearless

Increased drop rate from Onderon/Mek'sha daily missions.

(2) +2% Mastery

(4) Whenever you gain or use a Force Clarity ability charge while in combat, your damage is increased by 10% for 10 seconds.

(6) Dealing damage has a 10% chance to build a Force Clarity ability charge. Can only occur once every 5 seconds.

Comments: BIS for all Jedi Knight DPS disciplines due to the consistent +10% overall damage increase and the incremental +25% damage buff for one ability each time the ability is used.

Force Bound

Crafted by Synthweaving.

(2) +2% Accuracy Rating.

(4) Enemies affected by Awe have their Force and Tech accuracy reduced by 70% for 6 seconds after Awe wears off.

Comments: Force Bound is a really great set bonus for PVP due to the powerful debuff. It is not useful in PVE however.

Nimble Master

Increased drop rate from PVP.

(2) +2% Alacrity rating.

(4) Activating Saber Ward grants Nimble Master, increasing your movement speed 100% for the duration of Saber Ward.

Comments: An interesting tactical to provide another movement speed boost but the class already has numerous movement ability options and so benefits more from set bonuses that provide DPS or mitigation benefits.

Perfect Form

Increased drop rate from PVP.

(2) +2% Mastery.

(4) Slash and Blade Rush deal 5% more damage.

(6) Slash, Blade Rush, and Cyclone Slach add Vicious Thirst stacks to their targets, stacking up to 5 times. Killing an enemy with Vicious Thirst stacks increases your damage by 3% per stack for 10 seconds.

Comments: Potentially a BIS set for PVP where over the course of attacking and killing an enemy player you can receive at +15% damage boost for 10 seconds, enabling you to roll from enemy to enemy more easily.

The Undying

Increased drop rate from Conquest.

(2) +2% Endurance.

(4) After executing Blade Blitz, you gain 20% damage reduction for 6 seconds.

Comments: Undying can be a viable set bonus for tanks due to its damage mitigation buff. I am not personally a huge fan of the set bonus since using Blade Blitz is not always convenient or safe and part of the mitigation is wasted during Blade Blitz's brief immunity after activation. However, Guardian tanks lack any really strong mitigation set bonuses so Undying is one among many that are viable and may be preferred depending on playstyle.


Increased drop rate from PVP.

(2) +2% Power.

(4) After Force Statis's stun effect finishes, it slows its target and every target nearby it for 6 seconds.

Comments: An interesting PVP set bonus but again difficult to justify taking due to its highly situational use.
