Star Wars Jedi Survivor Best Perks Guide: Where to Find Them

If you’re diving into Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, you’ll find that the game features a wide selection of areas to explore, quests to complete, skills to buy, and quite a few perks to find and equip. Having so much to do and keep up with can feel a little bit overwhelming at first, but we’ll help take a little bit of the load off here by telling you the best perks to equip to put yourself in a good position while taking down baddies in a galaxy far, far away.

Wisdom – Best Perks in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor

Wisdom is an excellent choice to equip early on in your adventure, as it will increase the amount of XP you earn by slaying enemies. This will be especially noticeable against bosses or larger groups of foes, but either way, having that extra bit of XP trickling in never hurts.

The Wisdom perk can be purchased from Zee at Pyloon’s Saloon after completing a few main missions.


Shatter is an invaluable perk to keep around due to the fact that it improves your ability to break an enemy’s guard. There are a lot of enemies in the game that will block quite a lot, so being able to break through their defenses a bit quicker means you can get them dead quicker, too.

The Shatter perk can be obtained within a cave known as the Sodden Grotto on Koboh. You’ll have to fight a nasty Rancor, though, and it poses quite a challenge on higher difficulties. Even so, the reward will make it worth your while.

Star Wars Jedi Survivor Best Perk: Equilibrium

Equilibrium is a useful perk to keep equipped throughout the game if you have the space for it, as using any Force power will boost the damage of your next lightsaber swing. If you’re the type to regularly push and pull foes around, this will consistently come in handy for getting every little bit of damage out of your kit as possible.

The Equilibrium perk can be purchased from Zee at Pyloon’s Saloon after completing a few main missions.


Persistence is a great choice for survivability because it allows you to recover some HP from any enemies you kill while your Slow Time ability is active. Having that extra bit of healing (especially on higher difficulties) can be a lifesaver – literally.

The Persistence perk can be obtained within the Chamber of Fortitude on Koboh. When you defeat the boss of the temple, you’ll earn this as your reward.


Versatility is best used for those who enjoy switching stances frequently, as it will give you a temporary damage boost any time you do so. If you plan to alternate back and forth often, this can definitely make a small but noticeable difference in your overall output.

The Equilibrium perk can be purchased from Zee at Pyloon’s Saloon after completing a few main missions.
