Beginner’s tips for LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga
The time has come, a new entry in the legendary LEGO Star Wars series has been released. This awesome package will have you trekking everywhere from Coruscant to Tatooine and back again. You may need a little help to start your journey, and we’re not talking about strength here.
LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga there’s a lot going on under the hood. There’s a ton to collect, multiple worlds to explore, and a bunch of systems to interact with. It can all be a bit overwhelming at first. Fortunately, we have what you need. From the Kyber Block collection to the best ways to get stacks of these treasured studs, this guide will help you get started.
A certain number of Kyber blocks in each level can only be obtained by having enough LEGO studs to acquire the True Jedi rank. In order to get the required number of studs, your safest bet is to break everything you see. These studs are also needed for everything from leveling up your characters to buying new ones. You are going to want to have a healthy supply.
Even in missions where you run, you should smash available LEGO block structures to earn more studs. Don’t be shy, destroy everything you see. That being said, sometimes you can rebuild items to earn another set of studs. So not everything is destruction.
If you need to reach somewhere high, you can have your partner jump onto a block that can be lifted with the Force and use a Jedi character to lift said block. You can’t just lift the character itself, except if it’s a droid. This makes the Jedi and droid association very useful when picking up collectibles placed in out of reach places.
For this reason, one of your first priorities before you go collectibles hunting should be to acquire a droid character. Luckily, completing the very first mission of Episode 4: A New Hope will grant you access to R2-D2 and C-3PO.
Collect all your scattered bricks
Much like the rings in a Sonic game, if you die a bunch of bricks will fly all over the place. You will have the opportunity to remember it. But you will have to be quick, because they will start to disappear. That being said, if it happens to you often enough, you should probably improve your vitality and make your characters a bit sturdier.
The game also includes the ability to disable stud loss due to falling. Just go to the options menu and select “Fall Assist”. It’s a LEGO title, not Dark Souls. Losing studs because you fell sucks.
Your card is your best friend
In fgeneral, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga isn’t hiding Kyber blocks or minikits from you. They are usually displayed on the map. So if you’re looking to collect all of these, your first resort is to turn to said card. Often they will then require platforming, or the use of one of the various characters, or some sort of puzzle solving, but a good number of them are quite simple to acquire.
Pressing the d-pad will take you directly to the map of the area you are in. It’s much faster than scrolling through the option menus.
Combo for crampons
Combat in LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is pretty straightforward. However, there is a combined meter and it is worth paying attention to. Basically, for each move you will build a counter; when the meter fills up, you will be rewarded with studs.
If too much time passes, the combo counter will reset. This makes do not reset if hit (it’s not Devil May Cry). So you don’t have to be too careful. The name of the game here is to figure out where the next enemy to hit will be before dispatching the current enemy you’re fighting.
Replay is the name of the game
There are a number of items that you simply cannot get in the first round. You will have to return to these missions in freeplay mode with different types of characters. So don’t get too worked up about “missing” something. Nothing is really missing here, as the game makes it very easy to return to previously completed missions.
Often the best approach is to actively pursue one set of goals and ignore the others, then come back and complete what you missed. Don’t try to do everything at once. In the worst case, you repeat a level to fail to complete one of the challenges, but you’ll still earn a ton of studs in the process. Replaying stages is never unprofitable.
Episode 1: Ghost Menace Missions Are Good For Stud Farming
Episode 1 is extremely quick and easy to clear fairly quickly. By the time you complete the second mission in A New Hope, you’ve probably already completed all levels of A Phantom Menace. It’s worth clearing this content quickly so you can use it to farm early game stud.
The section catapults from “Outmanned But Not Out-Gungan-ed” is particularly good for quickly accumulating stallions (Focus on hitting troops with the catapult and ignore ships until you are happy with how many studs you have earned). And this mission can be accomplished in minutes.
Use your Kyber Bricks wisely
If you’re drowning in Kyber Bricks, step up a gear. However, in the early part of the game, you might find that you don’t have a ton on hand.. Since the base game isn’t particularly difficult, it’s best to use them to make certain challenges easier. For example, if you’re having trouble quickly destroying 3 vulture droids in the last level of Episode 1, you might want to increase the damage you deal in a vehicle.
Another great use for your Kyber Bricks is to unlock skills that will increase the amount of Studs you earn. It’s a great way to line your pockets while making it easier to get the True Jedi achievement.
Where to quickly find Kyber Bricks
If you’re actively looking to build up a quick supply of Kyber Bricks, heading to any major city will give you a ton of opportunities to get a number of them. Obviously, the more character types you have, the easier it will be to get these bricks.
One of the best places to grab Kyber Bricks quickly is in space sections. Most of them will have a Kyber asteroid. If you destroy one, they’ll give you five Kyber Bricks. Many of these space sections will open up as you progress through the nine campaigns.
Explore, explore, explore
Hey, it’s not that bad. This is a LEGO game. If you are just going to explore the game, you will always be rewarded. Always. Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker saga is full of treasures in every corner of every map. Everyone you talk to will help point you towards something of value. Every corner of every room is filled with things to smash, giving you those precious nails.
Basically, you can’t go wrong running. This game is perfect for people who just want to exploreso don’t be afraid to break away from the main quests and go rogue.
