With the launch of Star Wars: The Old Republic, new bundles were also made available through the Steam store. The Jedi bundle has two different options, a normal version and a deluxe version which has more items and costs more. One important thing to know is that all of these items are extremely cosmetic – they make your character look cool, but they do not give you any benefits beyond what normal gear provides. These items are also NOT exclusive to the Steam Bundle – you can also purchase them with Cartel Coins, which you get free for subscribing or buy with real money, but these can all also be bought from other players with Credits, the ingame currency you earn from questing.
When you purchase the bundle, each of your characters on your account is sent a copy of the bundle in the mail. When you create a new character in the future, that character will also be sent a bundle. The bundle is also bound to legacy so if you accidentally delete it, you can make another character, get another bundle, and then send it to the character you wanted it on. You can not buy, sell or trade these items, but in return you get a copy for every single one of your characters!
UPDATE: It’s been confirmed that the items in the Jedi & Sith bundles do NOT unlock in collections. Whether this is intended or a bug is unclear, but the good news is that since the bundle itself is legacy-bound you can make yourself infinite copies of the bundle and send them to your other characters just be creating new characters and deleting them after!
UPDATE: Oh how sad!!! It seems the new #SWTOR bundles are a bit bugged. SOME of the items are unlocking in collections. Others are not. Ex in this bundle the mount worked but the Caretaker robes and Dualsaber did not. Thanks Erik for checking! https://t.co/BV8W59FCvx pic.twitter.com/RUkNgF807T

Jedi Bundle – $24.99 USD
The Jedi Bundle includes:
- Valiant Jedi armor set
- Tempted Apprentice’s Lightsaber
- Advanced Cloud Blue Eviscerating Color Crystal
Valiant Jedi Armor Set
The Valiant Jedi armor set is normally a Cartel Market item, which normally costs 1,440 Cartel Coins. Click below for more screenshots and info. It’s very well liked by Jedi players and is one of the most iconic sets in the game, having been featured in the original game trailers and worn by a famous Jedi.
However, players can get a similar set practically for free once they finish their first planet on the Republic side. Click below for more screenshots and info.
The major benefits of purchasing the Steam Bundle / Cartel Market version is that you can wear it at level 1.
Advanced Cloud Blue Eviscerating Color Crystal
The Cloud Blue crystal is a beautiful light blue color crystal that changes the color of your lightsaber or blaster fire. The version you get with this pack gives you +41 Crit for stats, but color crystals are not a huge part of your stats until endgame, and even then your crystal can easily be accommodated by adjusting the stats on your other gear.
Here is the normal blue crystal for comparison that you might get through crafting or questing or buy from another player.
Tempted Apprentice’s Lightsaber
The lightsaber you get is a cool saber hilt that has its lights animated. This is for characters that wield a single lightsaber. Note much like the armor, it is cosmetic, and you will need to upgrade it to make it good for combat.
Deluxe Jedi Bundle – $59.99
Upgrade to the Deluxe Jedi Bundle to receive the above items plus:
- Derelict Purple Eviscerating Color Crystal
- Ambassador’s Meditation Hoverchair mount
- Sanctified Caretaker Armor Set
- Blademaster’s Lightsaber
- Tempted Apprentice’s Dualsaber
Sanctified Caretaker Armor Set
This set is aimed more towards Jedi Consulars. Click below for more screenshots and info.
However, much like the previous set, players can easily pick up a similar set practically for free after their first planet. Click below for more screenshots and info.
Ambassador’s Meditation Hoverchair
This mount is considered quite rare and is very cool! You float around on the little cushion and the datacrons float around magically above you.
Derelict Purple Eviscerating Color Crystal
This crystals is a faded purple amethyst color.
Here is the normal purple lightsaber crystal.
Tempted Apprentice’s Dualsaber
This is the double-bladed lightsaber version of the single version available in the non-deluxe pack.
This is a very nicely designed lightsaber with a detailed grip.
How to Upgrade your Armor & Weapons for Combat
As mentioned, all of these items are very cosmetic. Here’s how to add your armors to your Outfit Designer, and how to upgrade the stats of your weapons.
These items are normally sold in-game for Cartel Coins (don’t forget, you can also buy them from other players with credits, but the prices will vary wildly as the GTN is player-run). These are rough prices are not all items are currently available on the Cartel Market.
- Valiant Jedi armor set – 1,200 CC
- Tempted Apprentice’s Lightsaber – 700 CC
- Advanced Cloud Blue Eviscerating Color Crystal – 500 CC
- Derelict Purple Eviscerating Color Crystal – 500 CC
- Ambassador’s Meditation Hoverchair – 3,200 CC
- Sanctified Caretaker Armor Set – 1,440
- Blademaster’s Lightsaber – 500 CC
- Tempted Apprentice’s Dualsaber – 700 CC
This totals up to about 8,000 CC if you were to buy them individually, which is roughly $60 worth of Cartel Coins from SWTOR.com.
