Profession Overview Edit

The Teras Kasi Artist is Star Wars Galaxies' elite unarmed brawler profession - fighting with bare fists or with the damage-enhancing vibro-knuckler equipped.

This profession requires 106 skill points to master, 43 of which go towards prerequisites.

XP requirements to master, including prerequisites:

  • 4,891,650 Unarmed Combat XP (from fighting hand-to-hand with your fists)
  • 91,650 Two-Handed XP (from fighting with Two-handed weapons)
  • 405,000 Combat XP (from just getting into fights, regardless of weapon)

Profession Role SummaryEdit

  • Primary Role: Melee Tanking Specialist (Avoidance)
  • Secondary Role: Close Range Damage Dealer
  • Offense: Moderate (3)
  • Defense: Very Strong (5)
  • Crowd Control: Minimal (1)

Teras Kasi Artists are experts at avoiding damage. TKAs have several utility abilities to further help them survive standing toe to toe with the most powerful opponents in the galaxy. Their damage output is only moderate however making them less than ideal for taking opponents on their own.


However you want to look at it, Teras Kasi Artists are dangerous. From handing out obscene amounts of punishment to soaking up melee damage to spiritual mysticism, the Bunduki "steel hands" discipline is one of the most versatile melee professions in the galaxy. Teras Kasi artists possess the unique ability to target any one of the HAM pools, with the proper training, and also gain the Meditate command, which eventually allows them to heal their own wounds and negative state changes.

Getting Started Edit

Training Teras Kasi Novice requires 125,000 Unarmed Combat XP and two branchs from the Brawler profession:
