Interesting way to look at it. That's pretty much how it went for my first playthrough. However, seeing the power of not playing hide and seek fairly, I decided to overthrow Malak with Bastila and take his house for myself. The weather is nice and warm there.

i like tatooine and korriban the most so i tend to do them two first but as for the other 2 i tend to ramdomize them lol. but i hate the fact that you cannot get in the ruins on K2 but at least they give some history on them =]. i love listening to any history on K1+K2 lol. =]

I always do Korriban first if dark and last if light, and I try to get HK and Jolee as soon as possible.

I do Tatooine first because I can fight those stupid sand people more easily than any other foe. I also aim for the dragon pearl early on in the game... love those. I also want HK-47 before the old geezer, so I do Kashyyk second and so on...

Often, I'll do all of Korriban except for the final test so that I can postpone the Laviathon until I reach a higher level. I also want Bastila there for as long as possible. Anyone else do this?

I've never played a portion of a planet and then left to start another one. Once I land on a planet, I'm there for good until I get the star map unless there's some extenuating circumstances like finding out for the first time that Jamoh Hogra's Carbine is on Tatooine and I never got it for HK or something.

I have done it in the past, but I don´t make a habit out of it...it´s actually a smart idea when you think about it...might start doing that again

Korriban was my favorite planet in K1. Like others here I like the sith history, and of course Yuthura Ban is there. What can I say, I love my twileks!

I do Kashyyyk first because I prefer "the old geezer" , as DY put it, over HK. I always thought the Kinrath on Kashyyyk were far easier than the sandpeople...some of them are a bit tricky...especially the ones that throw those damned adhesive (or is it Cryoban? -whichever one gets you stuck in bubbling blue goo) grenades.

They're adhesive

I loved Korriban the best in K1, too, which was why I usually always went there first (on the female anyway)... if it was male, it was usually last/one of the last, because of Bastila.

I must say though, I hated the lack of action of Manaan... and I agree, Tattooine's sand people were quite difficult to beat sometimes... it didn't help that my party always ran to those big monsters with less than half of their health. Idiots.

Tch, I do that all the time. I like to finish the side-quests first and a fair number of them involve off-world travels.

Korriban was simply the best of the best in KOTOR. There were no places in either KOTOR that quite was its equal. I suppose the sith couldn't stand sharing first place w/any other planet.

The second Korriban was probably the WORST one there was. I just hate those dark force dragons showing up. And wretched Kreia keeps making my character go out of stealth mode for another lecture I don't want! Was there really any point to the second one?

I also despised those sand people because they are always throwing things they don't have and using weapons they don't leave behind. Although I like hunting them down for their sticks(50 credits each), I hate the ones with overinflated stats that don't leave anything behind! Also go to Tatooine early for the swoop racing bonds cashing in huge sums.

The sand people are pretty tough :\. They aren't too bad for me until those freaking Holy Warriors start ambushing you with two elites. No matter what, though, those damn wraids are what really tick me off. Those Hulak Wraids were hitting me for 25 damage the whole time. Really annoying. What's worse is their plates are only worth like 24 credits at Fazza's. What the hell kind of hunter can make a living off that? "Oh I see you managed to survive an extremely life threatening encounter with a large desert predator. Here's half a medpac."

Save the swoop bonds for Suvam Tan at Yavin Station. I think he pays 156 credits a pop for those. I got over 18,000 credits from him after Tatooine.

Correction: I did know... I just never saw the droid shop. >_> I mean I WAS 12 last time I completed it, before that.

At least I didn't die at the hands of sand people.

There's no shame in admitting to dying at the hands of some overly-inflated-stats enemy. I died against Malak MANY TIMES, but only because his attributes were so inflated to outrageous levels. That doesn't mean he ever beats me now. It makes sense to lose to a very easy enemy that is given much more than they ever deserve.

I visit the planets depending on how i want to shape my story. But i always try going to Kashyyyk as the second planet. Cause i hate bumping into Calo or Bandon down there.. But i think the best way for me is:

1. Tatooine
2. Kashyyyk
3. Manaan
4. Korriban

Sometimes i swap Tatooine and Manaan..


If we are all clones, why am i the only one with a sense of humor?

I have a question about Calo and Bandon...Does Calo always confront you on your first planet, and Bandon always on the third? That seems to be the case but I could swear I've fought Bandon at Kashyyyk even though that's always my second...

Yes, I believe that is how it works. I always go to Kashyyyk first, so Calo has those wookies with him. That makes him much harder to beat IMO. You must be mistaken about Kashyyk being your second. Although, if you stop at Kashyyyk first, but do not go down to the shadowlands, and just get on the Hawk and go to Tatooine, will Calo be on Kashyyyk or Tatooine?

If I recall correctly, Bandon confronts you on your second planet, not the third. But it's been a while.

As for the other question, Calo should be on Tatooine.

Let's see...

Calo meets Malak as you leave Dantooine.
Calo then ambushes you after your next Star Map (1st planet)
Then Saul Karath reports Calo's failure and Darth Bandon is introduced after your next Star Map (2nd planet)
Then Darth Bandon ambushes you after your next Star Map (3rd planet) <= bad idea for this to be Korriban, as you'll be by yourself
Then you're captured by the Leviathan after your 4th Star Map (4th planet)
Then you go on (sans Bastila) to retrieve the final Star Map (5th planet).

That's from memory, but I'm willing to wager cash that it's right. I hope that helps.

What do you mean you'll be by yourself? You get to have party members with you during the confrontation.

That seems to be the case...I must have something mixed up in my memory. I know I remember both Calo and Bandon on Kashyyyk, but I guess those were on very early playthroughs like when my step brother had the game...maybe I just watched him fight them.

No you do not. He ambushes you after you get the Star Map, which you have to do alone on Korriban. You don't get to add members back to your party until after you've reentered the academy. If you don't believe me, feel free to visit Korriban for your 3rd Star Map next time you play. Let me know how that works out for you.

Actually, on Korriban (like with Kashyyk) he ambushes you before you get the Star Map. Would've messed up the scene with the Sith students demanding to know where Uthar is if he hadn't, as they confront you in the same place you're ambushed by Bandon.

Please bet me money on this!

If Korriban is your 4th planet and you've already picked up your 3rd Star Map, then yes, he will ambush you before you get the Star Map (when you first enter the valley).

If Korriban is your 3rd planet and you just got your 3rd Star Map in the Tomb of Naga Sadow, then he will ambush you in the same spot and you will be all alone.

EDIT: Also, he only ambushes you beforehand on Kashyyk (and Tattooine and Manaan) if you've picked up the 3rd Star Map beforehand. If you get the 3rd Star Map on that planet, he will ambush you afterwords, on your way back to your ship.

I’d remember that happening once before when I’ve played, but I felt that must have been just on the Xbox version, yet I was wrong again. Should have known you were correct when Redhawke agreed with you.

1. Tatoonine - to see what’s eating Bastila’s father.
2. Kashyyyk - to check on the retirement community Chuundar put Big Z's father Freyyr into.
3. Manaan - Getting low on funds from helping out Mission’s family. Travel to Manaan to see what the going rate is on Cathar Slaves. Maybe a nice sushi dinner is in order.
4. Korriban – After making a quick stop to drop some dead weight off. It is time to head over to Korriban to visit Carth’s son in college. Can you say toga party? Carth is a bit disappointed that Dustil did not choice his alma mater, but who cares a party is a party.

1) Tattooine - At this point I've already spoken to Mission about her brother and Lena will pop up to let us know where he is. Also to pick up HK-47.
2) Kashyyyk - Griff needs Tach glands and this is where they are. Oh, look a new party member too!
3) Korriban - By this point Carth's told me all about Dustil and now we know where to find him (besides it makes a lot more sense to help Carth before the big reveal rather than after...to me anyway). Also, there is some phat loot on Korriban and I feel it makes the most sense to get this at about the half-way point.
4) Manaan - Because it's the only one left. Jolee is the last to join, so we do his side quest last.

Where do I place my bets?! Where do I place my bets?! Whatever you're willing to wager... I'm game!

Of course, since this wouldn't work anyway, I'll just say it... Darth Bandon engages Revan before the fourth Star Map on Korriban has been found. If you found three of the five and go to Korriban's Valley, he will be there. The same goes true if you got three and then went back to Tattoine's star map again... he'll be there even if you already found that map second or third time around.

As for me, let's see...

Kashyyyk - If I have to have a walking carpet on board, he sure as hell is going to pull his weight, and we need a guide.

Tatooine - Someone has challenged Canderous to a duel. Mandalorians never run from a fight. Not even when the other side has a big red button hooked up to a superweapon in orbit over the creepiest world this side of the galaxy.

Manaan - After hiking through the forest and the desert, it's time for a nice vacation by the sea.

Korriban -

Like the man said, party!

Right here is fine.

The same goes true if you got three and then went back to Tattoine's star map again... he'll be there even if you already found that map second or third time around.
Three people have confirmed that it works precisely like this and yet still you argue?

Darth Bandon engages Revan before before the Korriban Star Map, only if 4th Star Map has been found first (i.e. if Korriban is your 2nd to last star map). Otherwise if Korriban is the 4th star map, then Bandon will engage you on your way back to the academy, after you've whooped whichever Sith Masters you've decided to whoop.

I played KotOR a lot (!!!) of times.

Well, so have I but I don't memorize every detail. For instance, I don't know that BioWare used the Ebon Hawk dorm for what's supposed to be the bunk in the hideout on Taris.

Says you.

Another question comes to mind...I do Kashyyyk first, in order to get Jolee early on, plus I've always found that it goes a bit quicker. And I've noticed most do Kashyyyk first and Tatooine second (or vice versa), obviously to get Jolee and HK early.

So for those of you that do, why Kashyyyk first, or why Tatooine first, whatever the case may be?

The first time I played, I did Tatooine, Kashyyyk, (for some reason, if you don't leave a world at all during your first two Star Maps, the Leviathan comes early), and after the Leviathan I did Manaan and Korriban. I always hated Manaan, the Selkath sounds gave me a headache, and you had do listen to the stupid security camera warning all the time.

I do Tattooine first because Mission points me to Tattooine and then Griff (on Tattooine) points me to Kashyyyk. If I tried to find a similar story-based rationale for going to Kashyyyk first, it doesn't exist (or I should say, "I haven't found it").

For the purposes of roleplaying, I try very hard to let the story direct me to where I should go next. Revan in the game doesn't know that Jolee is on Kashyyyk, therefore I play as though I don't know either.

Kashyyk. Out of all the party members (except maybe Carth for female PCs), Jolee has the most dialogue. I've found I can only trigger it all by picking him up as early as possible. And even then, I'm usually listening to his last conversation on the Unknown World.

Edit: True, there's no actual reason you should go to Kashyyk first from a roleplaying perspective. I like to pretend it's situated in between Dantooine and Tatooine*, though, making it the most convenient planet to visit first.

* The EU can screw itself, most of it's garbage anyways.

Hmm...my copy must be broken. It seems like Jolee is willing to spill the beans entirely almost from the word "go". I actually dread talking to him because once I start, I know he won't shut up.
