Disclaimer : This is not some newb asking where do I get a lightsaber and how do I become a jefi thread!
Ok as I was scrolling through the NP weapons today I noticed that both the short and twin bladed lightsabers have been added with a requirement of a skill level of 5. Does this mean that if somehow you manage to aquire a lightsaber you can use it if effectively with a NP level of 5?
And question 2 was this a result of someone reading Legacy of the Force books 8 (Revelations) and 9 (Invincible)?
The required skill is rather inconsequential at the moment due to the lack of Combat coding and the likelihood of changes between now and then. It is likely that, if you are not Force-aware, you will require a 5 in NPW to not hurt yourself with it, but if you are Force-aware any equations will instead be determined by your Lightsaber Dueling skill.
For reference, I'm the coder person you're more than welcome to bribe. ;)
