Just as the success of a weapon attack in combat is determined by an attack roll against defense, the success or extent of various other damaging, debilitating and status-altering effects is determined by a saving throw against the Difficulty Class (DC) of those effects: the defender makes an opposed roll using d20 + the relevant save (Fortitude, Reflex or Will) versus the attacker's DC. If the saving throw is greater (or equal), then its success may reduce any effect, or even negate it entirely; if it fails, the attack has full effect.

Thus a saving throw always fails if DC > save + 20 (maximum d20 roll), and always succeeds if DC ≤ save + 1 (minimum d20 roll). Otherwise, the chance of success is as follows:

Difficulty Class - save
> 20 20 19 18 17 16 15 14 13 12 11 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 < 2
0% 5% 10% 15% 20% 25% 30% 35% 40% 45% 50% 55% 60% 65% 70% 75% 80% 85% 90% 95% 100%

For example, a Fortitude saving throw must normally be made at DC 30 if a Deadly Gas Mine is triggered: Fortitude save 9 or less means this throw always fails (maximum 20 + 9 = 29), always resulting in poisoning; however, if it's 19 then it succeeds 50% of the time (roll (11-20) + 19 = 30-39); and if it's 29 or more then it always succeeds (minimum 1 + 29 = 30), never resulting in poisoning.

Feats[edit]

If an attack with Critical Strike or Sniper Shot hits, the target is stunned for 6 seconds unless they make a Fortitude save at the following DC:

Critical Strike Sniper Shot
attacker level + attacker Strength modifier attacker level + attacker Intelligence modifier

The target isn't stunned until the end of the attack round. This effect can also be negated by Immunity: Mind-Affecting or Force Immunity: Stun.

Force powers[edit]

Almost all offensive Force powers have DC 5 + attacker level + attacker Wisdom and Charisma modifiers + Force Focus:

Save
Fortitude Reflex Will
Stun, Stasis (Field) Light side powers
Stun Droid Light side power
Affliction, Plague Dark side powers
Drain Life, Death Field Dark side powers
Wound, Choke, Kill Dark side powers
Disable, Destroy Droid Light side powers
Force Push, Whirlwind, Wave
Fear, Horror, Insanity Dark side powers
Shock, Force Lightning, Storm Dark side powers
Slow Dark side power

Affliction has DC 20, Plague has DC 100 and no saving throw can be made against Force Suppression and Breach, or (Advanced) Throw Lightsaber (although Shields and Improved Energy Resistance can reduce energy damage).

  • Affliction and Plague can also be countered by Immunity: Poison.

All except Force Suppression, Force Breach and (Advanced) Throw Lightsaber can also be countered by Force Resistance or Immunity. Enemies with these powers may be encountered in the following locations (highest attacker and power levels and DCs only):

World Area Max Level Maximum Difficulty Class vs Save

Grenades[edit]

Grenade Damage Secondary DC Save
Concussion Grenade Stun for 9 seconds 15 Will
Sonic Grenade Sonic, 20 points -6 Dexterity for 30 seconds 15 Will
CryoBan Grenade Cold, 20 points Paralyzation for 6 seconds 15 Reflex
Frag Grenade Piercing, 20 points 15 Reflex
Ion Grenade Ion, 15 points (45 points vs. droids) 15 Reflex
Plasma Grenade Heat, 36 points Horror for 3 seconds 15 Reflex
Thermal Detonator Energy, 60 points Knockdown 15 Reflex
Poison Grenade Poison, 4 points every 3 seconds Duration: 30 seconds 25 Fortitude

Uncanny Dodge reduces grenade DCs by 2, while Uncanny Dodge 2 reduces them by 4. A successful saving throw halves damage (rounded down) and results in no secondary effect for all but Thermal Detonators.

  • CryoBan Grenade Paralyzation can also be countered by Force Immunity: Paralysis.

Mines[edit]

Mines can be avoided if you or your party make a successful Awareness check to detect them, then move around them or use Demolitions to disable or recover them. Otherwise:

Mine Effect DC Save
Minor Average Deadly
Flash Stun for 9 seconds 15 20 25 Will
Frag Damage: Piercing 15 20 25 Reflex
Plasma Damage: Energy 15 20 25 Reflex
Gas Damage: Poison 15 20 30 Fortitude

A successful saving throw results in no effect for flash and gas mines, but only halves damage of frag and plasma mines.

On Hit[edit]

On Hit properties only apply their effects upon a successful attack roll to a single target, but these effects can be reduced or even negated if a saving throw is equal to or greater than Difficulty Class (some can also be negated by Immunity or Force Immunity, removing the need for a saving throw).

On Hit On Hit: Attribute Damage Dexterity On Hit: Horror On Hit: Instant Death On Hit: Paralyze On Hit: Poison On Hit: Slowed On Hit: Stun
Immunity Immunity: Mind-Affecting Force Immunity Fear Force Immunity Paralysis Immunity: Poison Immunity: Mind-Affecting Force Immunity Stun

Attribute Damage Dexterity[edit]

Targets have their Dexterity attribute reduced by 1 for 30 seconds unless they make a Reflex save at DC 14. This effect stacks, and is a property of all sonic pistols and rifles. Enemies with these weapons may be encountered in the following locations:

Tatooine Dune Sea Dark Side Points Gained 14
World Area DC
Manaan Hrakert Station 14

Horror[edit]

Targets have 100% chance to be debilitated with fear for 3 seconds unless they make a Fortitude save at the DC. This effect can also be negated by Immunity: Mind-Affecting or Force Immunity: Fear, and is a property of the following:

Advanced Flame Thrower has Reflex Save: DC20 vs damage, but Fortitude Save: DC15 vs Horror.

Enemy droids with these weapons may be encountered in the following locations:

Instant Death[edit]

Targets are killed instantly unless they make a Fortitude save at DC 100, which is impossible without cheating: do not put yourself in a position where you can get hit! Enemies with this property may be encountered in the following locations:

Paralyze[edit]

Targets have a chance to be paralyzed unless they make a Reflex save at the DC. This effect can be negated by Force Immunity: Paralysis, and is a property of the following:

Source Chance DC Seconds
Failure Success
Lightsaber crystal Crystal, Bondar Mantle of the Force 25% 14 6 0
Special weapons Carbonite Projector Feats Required: Droid Upgrade Class 2 100% 15 9 3

Dantooine Ruins 15
World Area DC
Kashyyyk Lower Shadowlands 20

Poison[edit]

Targets suffer damage or weakness unless a Fortitude save is made at the DC. Damage is suffered every 3 seconds for 30 seconds, while weakness results in the temporary but increasing loss of the six physical attributes for 36 or 72 seconds.

Damage Points DC
Mild 3 (*10) 15
Average 4 (*10) 25
Virulent 5 (*10) 30
Weakness Attributes DC
Mild -1 every 12 s (*3) 15
Average -1 every 6 s (*6) 20
Virulent -1 every 6 s (*12) 100

Both damage and weakness can also be negated by Immunity: Poison or neutralized afterwards by an Antidote Kit or Heal, while damage can also be significantly reduced or even negated by Improved Toughness and Wookiee Toughness. These effects are properties of the following:

Enemies with this property may be encountered in the following locations:

Kashyyyk Lower Shadowlands Average
Upper Shadowlands Average
Manaan Hrakert Station Average
Kolto Control Average

Slowed[edit]

Targets have a chance to be slowed for 9 seconds unless they make a Reflex save at the DC. Being slowed reduces movement speed and inflicts -4 Defense, and these effects stack (although duration does not).

This is a property of the following:

Special weapon Chance DC
Advanced Gravity Generator Feats Required: Droid Upgrade Class 3 100% 20

Enemy droids with these weapons may be encountered in the following locations:

Plasma mines actually inflict energy damage so an Advanced Flame Thrower can inflict the most heat or fire damage in the game (just as a Carbonite Projector Mark II can inflict the most cold damage) although, as can be seen, enemy droids that use them against you are extremely rare.

These droids can be prevented from using their weapons by debilitating them first using a Stun Droid power; otherwise, any combination of a high Reflex save, Shields, (Improved) Energy Resistance and Damage Resistance can significantly reduce or even negate damage entirely (Reflex > 13 and (Improved) Energy Resistance alone guarantee this for normal Flame Throwers and Carbonite Projectors).
