Sage Balance Basics Guide

Balance

There is serenity in balance, and no one knows this better than the Balance Sage. Able to assail multiple targets at once while at the same time absorbing their vitality, the Balance Safe is a formidable presence in long-range engagements.

  • Role: Damage
  • Type: Damage Over Time
  • Weapon: Single Lightsaber, though it is not used
  • Distance: Long Range
  • Mirror: Sorcerer – Madness

Balance for New Players

  • Balance is long-range, making it easier to hit moving targets compared to melee characters for new players.
  • Balance is a damage-over-time class which means you need to build up your attacks over time, and to be effective you need to learn to spread your damage out across multiple enemies, which can make it slightly harder to learn than attacking one enemy at a time for new players.

How to play a Balance Sage

You can start playing Balance at level 1. To start playing Balance, you will need to first create a Sage character, which can be played by Jedi Knights and Jedi Consulars (or even the Sith Warrior and Sith Inquisitor if you unlock the dark-side Combat Styles.)

Once you are ingame, press K on your keyboard to open the Combat Style tab, and choose Balance from the three options. This choice is not permanent, you will be able to switch between all three options by finding a rest location like a cantina.

Below Level 80

Below Level 80

If you are below level 80, there are no true guides available to tell you what specific abilities you should be using, because the ideal rotation would change every level.

Instead, you can use this guide to figure out which of your abilities are attacks, which are defensive, and which are just useful.

Level 80

5 Ability Basic Rotation

Not quite ready to learn all your abilities yet? Use this quick 5-ability rotation for the Balance Sage until you’re ready to read and learn from a true level 80 guide.

  •  Vanquish and then Sever Force are your main damage over time (DoT) abilities.
  •  Weaken Mind is your third DoT to get going on your target.
  •  Force in Balance should be cast after all your DoTs, as it makes them all do more damage over time. Double click or double tap the Force in Balance key to place it immediately on your target’s location, instead of having to aim where it lands.
  • Force Serenity will be your hardest hitting move after your DoTs.
  •  Telekinetic Throw is your main filler ability. Spam this until Vanquish becomes available, and start all over again!

More than 3 Enemies

  •  Force in Balance will spread the effects of your DoTs to all nearby targets, so in Area Damage scenarios, being mindful of where you place it while doing your single target rotation should be enough to do great widespread damage.
  •  Forcequake can also replace all but your FIRST Telekinetic Throw in your rotation to do even more Area Damage (you want to do at least one throw still; to buff Vanquish later when you restart the rotation).

Extra Tips

  • Feeling Spicy? Your blue Mental Alacrity and orange Force Potency are fantastic buffs you can activate during fights to increase your damage. Mental Alacrity will increase the speed of your casts, and Force Potency will increase the damage overall. Pop these right after Vanquish, at the same time as you’re applying your other DoTs.
Level 80

Before you start…

If you happen to have 3,000 Tech Fragments, go and buy the Tempest of Rho tactical item.

It helps you do a ridiculous amount of extra damage with no extra work.


If you are set up to get your Legendary implants , the Gathering Storm Legendary Implant will increase the damage dealt by your next attack once you use Force Speed. You’ll get the best bonus by using Force Speed right before Force Serenity.

Enemy castbars that fill up from left to right are called casts and can be interrupted and the ability will be stopped, but castbars that go from right to left deal damage the entire time they are channeling.

  • Cloud Mind - Optional Detaunt Level 27 Option 2/3 - Your detaunt ability will cause enemies to lose interest in your character, at least for a short time.

  • Phase Walk - Optional Teleport Level 68 Option 3/3 - Activating this ability marks your current location for 10 minutes.

Phase Walk goes on cooldown for 60 seconds when used to return to the marked location.Level 68

Tree Choices

As you level up, you will be able to make choices about how you play your Balance Sage with the Ability Tree, which can be opened with the K key on your keyboard. If you do not choose one, a default option will be chosen for you.

You will have eight choices to make as you level up, at levels 23, 27, 39, 43, 51, 64, 68 and 73. All of these Ability Tree choices are not permanent choices and can be changed later. If you are following a Level 80 guide on how to play your Balance Sage, you will need to make sure to choose the same options as they have. You may not have the same choices chosen as a friend who is also playing a Balance Sage.

Level 23 Choice: Force in Balance Change

Choose from one of three ways that you want Force in Balance to change at level 23. Your options are Consuming Light, Shifted Balance, and One with the Force.

Force in Balance

Deals internal damage and redistributes life from affected targets to heal you for 10% of the damage dealt. Strikes up to 8 targets within a 5-meter radius.

Consuming Light

When a charge of Force Suppression is consumed there is a 50% chance for a Force Suppression charge to not be consumed.

Shifted Balance

Deals single target internal damage and applies Force Suppression. Increases Lifesteal by 50%. Replaces Force in Balance.

One with the Force

Force Suppression heals the caster for 1% of their health when they are consumed.

Force Suppression heals the caster for 1% of their health when they are consumed.

Solo Suggestion: Consuming Light - Force Suppression stacks lasting longer to apply to more DoT ticks throughout a fight makes Consuming Light your best choice for damage.

Flashpoint Suggestion: Shifted Balance - Force Suppression stacks lasting longer to apply to more DoT ticks throughout a fight makes Consuming Light your best choice for damage, HOWEVER, starting at level 43 you will gain a passive that makes THIS choice, Shifted Balance, apply Assailable to the target, increasing their internal/elemental damage taken. Taking this choice results in less damage for YOU personally, but DoT teammates that can't apply this debuff themselves like plasma/pyrotech or vigilance/vengeance will do much more. If

Operation Suggestion: Shifted Balance - Force Suppression stacks lasting longer to apply to more DoT ticks throughout a fight makes Consuming Light your best choice for damage, HOWEVER, starting at level 43 you will gain a passive that makes THIS choice, Shifted Balance, apply Assailable to the target, increasing their internal/elemental damage taken. Taking this choice results in less damage for YOU personally, but DoT teammates that can't apply this debuff themselves like plasma/pyrotech or vigilance/vengeance will do much more. If

Level 27 Choice

Choose from one of three Sage abilities at Level 27, you can only have one of these options at any given time. Your options as a Balance Sage for the Level 27 choice are Teachings of Rajivari, Cloud Mind, and Destructive Wave.

Teachings of Rajivari

Project finishes off all your directly applied damage over time effects at once, dealing their remaining damage. The cooldown for Project is increased by 12 seconds.

Project finishes off all your directly applied damage over time effects at once, dealing their remaining damage. The cooldown for Project is increased by 12 seconds.

Cloud Mind

Clouds the minds of your enemies, instantly lowering your threat by a moderate amount. Activating Cloud Mind grants Blockout, which increases damage reduction by 25% for 6 seconds.

Your detaunt ability will cause enemies to lose interest in your character, at least for a short time. This is most useful if you're getting attacked during group fights when your tank is supposed to be taking the damage, or when your companion is set to tank.

Destructive Wave

Fires a blast of telekinetic energy at the target, dealing kinetic damage to up to 3 enemies within 10 meters. Replaces Disturbance.

Fires a blast of telekinetic energy at the target, dealing kinetic damage to up to 3 enemies within 10 meters. Replaces Disturbance.

Solo Suggestion: Teachings of Rajivari - All three choices on this tier are pretty useful, but Teaching of Rajivari results in the highest single target boost to damage, so it's recommended as default. If you need a defensive, Cloud Mind works as one! Destructive Wave will do best against 3+ targets at a time as well.

Operation Suggestion: Cloud Mind - By default in operations I would definitely take this Detaunt especially because it can also be used defensively regardless of threat level. If you find yourself not needing it, Teachings of Rajivari will be a good single target damage boost.

Flashpoint Suggestion: Destructive Wave - Special recommendation for Destructive Wave for flashpoints as it's increase to your AoE can really speed up killing all the mobs between bosses. Teachings of Rajivari will be the best for Single Target though, and Cloud mind is a great detaunt/defensive if you need it.

Level 39 Choice: Sever Force Change

Choose from one of three ways that you want Sever Force to change at level 39. Your options are Center Point, Shatter Connection, and Returning Light.

Sever Force

Weakens the target, freezing it in place for 2 seconds and dealing internal damage over 18 seconds. The immobilizing effect cannot occur more than once every 9 seconds.

Center Point

Sever Force has a 30% chance to deal damage up to 4 targets within 10 meters of the initial target.

Sever Force has a 30% chance to deal damage up to 4 targets within 10 meters of the initial target.

Shatter Connection

Dealing damage with Sever Force shatters the connection to the force of the target, consuming two stacks of Force Suppression and dealing increased damage.

Returning Light

Dealing damage with Sever Force reduces the cooldown of Force Potency by 2 seconds. This effect can only occur once every 3 seconds.

Dealing damage with Sever Force reduces the cooldown of Force Potency by 2 seconds. This effect can only occur once every 3 seconds.

General Suggestion: Shatter Connection - If you took Consuming Light in the 23 tier, Shatter Connection will provide the best DPS benefit over time. If you need more burst damage in a smaller window, or took Shifted Balance at 23, Returning Light will be the better choice.

Level 43 Choice

Choose from one of three Sage abilities at Level 43, you can only have one of these options at any given time. Your options as a Balance Sage for the Level 43 choice are Enhanced Force Speed, Warden of the Force, and Force Empowerment.

Enhanced Force Speed

Periodic damage reduces the cooldown of Force Speed by 3 seconds. This effect can only occur once every 5 seconds.

Periodic damage reduces the cooldown of Force Speed by 3 seconds. This effect can only occur once every 5 seconds.

Warden of the Force

Dealing critical damage with your damage over time abilities increases your damage reduction by 5% for 10 seconds. Stacks up to 3 times.

Dealing critical damage with your damage over time abilities increases your damage reduction by 5% for 10 seconds. Stacks up to 3 times.

Force Empowerment

Increases mastery, endurance, and presence for you and your Operation group members within 40 meters by 10%. Lasts 10 seconds. Those affected by Force Empowerment become Drained and cannot regain Force Empowerment for 5 minutes.

Increases mastery, endurance, and presence for you and your Operation group members within 40 meters by 10%. Lasts 10 seconds. Those affected by Force Empowerment become Drained and cannot regain Force Empowerment for 5 minutes.

General Suggestion: Enhanced Force Speed - Force Speed coming off cooldown so often is extremely useful for just about any content. If you seriously need some damage reduction to survive, Warden of the Force is a great choice, but you may actually notice a DPS drop from spending more time moving/dodging.

Level 51 Choice

Choose from one of three Sage abilities at Level 51, you can only have one of these options at any given time. Your options as a Balance Sage for the Level 51 choice are Telekinetic Defense, Force Mobility, and Resistance.

Telekinetic Defense

Your Force Armor reverberates with Force energy, blasting attackers for energy damage when it absorbs direct damage to you. This effect does not affect Force Armors placed on allies and cannot occur more than once each second.

Force Mobility

Turbulence, Healing Trance, and Force Serenity can be activated while moving.

Turbulence, Healing Trance, and Force Serenity can be activated while moving.

Resistance

Increases damage reduction by 3%.

Increases damage reduction by 3%.

General Suggestion: Force Mobility - Casting Serenity makes up a decent percentage of your time standing still in a fight, and enabling you to move during it can really increase your uptime and therefore your DPS. Take by default.

Level 64 Choice

Choose from one of three Sage abilities at Level 64, you can only have one of these options at any given time. Your options as a Balance Sage for the Level 64 choice are Metaphysical Alacrity, Valorous Spirit, and Kinetic Collapse.

Metaphysical Alacrity

Reduces the cooldowns of Force Speed by 5 seconds and Force Barrier by 30 seconds. In addition, Force Speed lasts 0.5 seconds longer, Mental Alacrity increases your movement speed by 100% while active, and the active cooldown of Force Speed is finished when Force Barrier ends.

Force Mend increases your damage reduction by 15% for 6 seconds. Additionally, reduces the cooldown of Force Mend by 5 seconds.

Kinetic Collapse

Force Armors you place on yourself erupt in a flash of light when they end, blinding up to 8 nearby enemies for 3 seconds. This effect breaks from direct damage.

Force Armors you place on yourself erupt in a flash of light when they end, blinding up to 8 nearby enemies for 3 seconds. This effect breaks from direct damage.

Flashpoint Suggestion: Metaphysical Alacrity - A great mobile choice here that should probably be taken by default, unless you really want the defensive in Valorous Spirit. Remember when picking Valorous Spirit that you have to Force Mend yourself for it to work!

Operation Suggestion: Metaphysical Alacrity - A great mobile choice here that should probably be taken by default, unless you really want the defensive in Valorous Spirit. Remember when picking Valorous Spirit that you have to Force Mend yourself for it to work!

Solo Suggestion: Kinetic Collapse - Most enemies in solo content won't be immune to a blind, so Kinetic Collapse can be a cool choice here. If they are immune, or you just don't need the crowd control, Metaphysical Alacrity is a great speed boost.

Level 68 Choice

Choose from one of three Sage abilities at Level 68, you can only have one of these options at any given time. Your options as a Balance Sage for the Level 68 choice are Telekinetic Blitz, Force Lift, and Phase Walk.

Telekinetic Blitz

Deals kinetic damage to your target and leaves you feeling Empowered for up to 5 seconds. The Empowered effect can stack three times, with each stack increasing Telekinetic Blitz damage by 30%. The ability has 3 charges and recharges every 10 seconds. Telekinetic Blitz deals 10% more damage, and if applicable healing.

The ability has 3 charges and recharges every 10 seconds. Telekinetic Blitz deals 10% more damage, and if applicable healing.

Force Lift

Lifts the target helplessly into the air, preventing all action for up to 8 seconds. Non-player, non-standard, and non-weak targets heal rapidly while lifted out of harm's way. Damage causes this effect to end prematurely.

Your crowd control (CC) is a special type of stun you can only use outside of combat. You use it before a fight, to temporarily knock an opponent out of the fight while you deal with the other enemies. Accidentally damaging your crowd control'd target will wake them up.

Phase Walk

Activating this ability marks your current location for 10 minutes. When this ability is activated again, if you are within 60 meters of the marked location, you instantly return to the marked location. Phase Walk goes on cooldown for 60 seconds when used to return to the marked location.

Activating this ability marks your current location for 10 minutes. When this ability is activated again, if you are within 60 meters of the marked location, you instantly return to the marked location. Phase Walk goes on cooldown for 60 seconds when used to return to the marked location.

Solo Suggestion: Force Lift - Normally Phase Walk would be recommended as default here as great mobility, because Telekinetic Blitz doesn't have room in your rotation and Force Lift breaks on damage in group content and more often than not your allies will cancel it anyway. But in solo content, Force Lift can be very useful on multi-target fights to keep one target out of the way for a bit. Master Mode Chapters are a great place to lift extra targets away!

Flashpoint Suggestion: Phase Walk - Phase walk is likely your best bet here to instantly teleport out of AoE damage or do a mechanic quicker. No room for Telekinetic Blitz in your rotation, and outside of the two turrets in Hammer Station, most random groups will pull and fight everything at once in flashpoints, so your Force Lift would be cancelled anyway.

Operation Suggestion: Phase Walk - Phase walk is likely your best bet here to instantly teleport out of AoE damage or do a mechanic quicker. No room for Telekinetic Blitz in your rotation, and Force Lift can't be used on most Operation targets.

Level 73 Choice

Choose from one of three Sage abilities at Level 73, you can only have one of these options at any given time. Your options as a Balance Sage for the Level 73 choice are Egress, Confound, and Mind Ward.

Egress

Force Speed grants Egress, removing all movement-impairing effects and granting immunity to them for the duration.

Confound

Targets affected by your Weaken Mind are slowed by 30% for its duration.

Targets affected by your Weaken Mind are slowed by 30% for its duration.

Mind Ward

Reduces the damage taken by all periodic effects by 15%.

Reduces the damage taken by all periodic effects by 15%.

General Suggestion: Mind Ward - Mind Ward is a greatly beneficial survivability choice, with Egress being a situationally useful slow-breaker.

Teachings of RajivariOptional Passive Level 27 Option 1/3

Project finishes off all your directly applied damage over time effects at once, dealing their remaining damage. The cooldown for Project is increased by 12 seconds.

Project finishes off all your directly applied damage over time effects at once, dealing their remaining damage. The cooldown for Project is increased by 12 seconds.

Solo Suggestion: All three choices on this tier are pretty useful, but Teaching of Rajivari results in the highest single target boost to damage, so it's recommended as default. If you need a defensive, Cloud Mind works as one! Destructive Wave will do best against 3+ targets at a time as well.

LvL27
Cloud MindOptional Detaunt Level 27 Option 2/3

Clouds the minds of your enemies, instantly lowering your threat by a moderate amount. Activating Cloud Mind grants Blockout, which increases damage reduction by 25% for 6 seconds.

Your detaunt ability will cause enemies to lose interest in your character, at least for a short time. This is most useful if you're getting attacked during group fights when your tank is supposed to be taking the damage, or when your companion is set to tank.

Operation Suggestion: By default in operations I would definitely take this Detaunt especially because it can also be used defensively regardless of threat level. If you find yourself not needing it, Teachings of Rajivari will be a good single target damage boost.

LvL27
Destructive WaveOptional Area Attack 30m (long range) Level 27 Option 3/3

Fires a blast of telekinetic energy at the target, dealing kinetic damage to up to 3 enemies within 10 meters. Replaces Disturbance.

Fires a blast of telekinetic energy at the target, dealing kinetic damage to up to 3 enemies within 10 meters. Replaces Disturbance.

Flashpoint Suggestion: Special recommendation for Destructive Wave for flashpoints as it's increase to your AoE can really speed up killing all the mobs between bosses. Teachings of Rajivari will be the best for Single Target though, and Cloud mind is a great detaunt/defensive if you need it.

Dealing damage with Sever Force shatters the connection to the force of the target, consuming two stacks of Force Suppression and dealing increased damage.

Dealing damage with Sever Force shatters the connection to the force of the target, consuming two stacks of Force Suppression and dealing increased damage.

General Suggestion: If you took Consuming Light in the 23 tier, Shatter Connection will provide the best DPS benefit over time. If you need more burst damage in a smaller window, or took Shifted Balance at 23, Returning Light will be the better choice.

LvL39

Periodic damage reduces the cooldown of Force Speed by 3 seconds. This effect can only occur once every 5 seconds.

Periodic damage reduces the cooldown of Force Speed by 3 seconds. This effect can only occur once every 5 seconds.

General Suggestion: Force Speed coming off cooldown so often is extremely useful for just about any content. If you seriously need some damage reduction to survive, Warden of the Force is a great choice, but you may actually notice a DPS drop from spending more time moving/dodging.

LvL43

Shifted Balance slows targets by 50% for 6 seconds and grants Assailable increasing internal and elemental damage on the target by 7%.

General Suggestion: Casting Serenity makes up a decent percentage of your time standing still in a fight, and enabling you to move during it can really increase your uptime and therefore your DPS. Take by default.

Flashpoint Suggestion: A great mobile choice here that should probably be taken by default, unless you really want the defensive in Valorous Spirit. Remember when picking Valorous Spirit that you have to Force Mend yourself for it to work!

Force Armors you place on yourself erupt in a flash of light when they end, blinding up to 8 nearby enemies for 3 seconds. This effect breaks from direct damage.

Solo Suggestion: Most enemies in solo content won't be immune to a blind, so Kinetic Collapse can be a cool choice here. If they are immune, or you just don't need the crowd control, Metaphysical Alacrity is a great speed boost.

LvL68
Telekinetic BlitzOptional Attack 30m (long range) Level 68 Option 1/3

Deals kinetic damage to your target and leaves you feeling Empowered for up to 5 seconds. The Empowered effect can stack three times, with each stack increasing Telekinetic Blitz damage by 30%.

LvL68
Force LiftOptional Crowd Control 30m (long range) Level 68 Option 2/3

Lifts the target helplessly into the air, preventing all action for up to 8 seconds. Non-player, non-standard, and non-weak targets heal rapidly while lifted out of harm's way. Damage causes this effect to end prematurely.

Your crowd control (CC) is a special type of stun you can only use outside of combat. You use it before a fight, to temporarily knock an opponent out of the fight while you deal with the other enemies. Accidentally damaging your crowd control'd target will wake them up.

Solo Suggestion: Normally Phase Walk would be recommended as default here as great mobility, because Telekinetic Blitz doesn't have room in your rotation and Force Lift breaks on damage in group content and more often than not your allies will cancel it anyway. But in solo content, Force Lift can be very useful on multi-target fights to keep one target out of the way for a bit. Master Mode Chapters are a great place to lift extra targets away!

LvL68
Phase WalkOptional Teleport Level 68 Option 3/3

Activating this ability marks your current location for 10 minutes. When this ability is activated again, if you are within 60 meters of the marked location, you instantly return to the marked location. Phase Walk goes on cooldown for 60 seconds when used to return to the marked location.

Activating this ability marks your current location for 10 minutes. When this ability is activated again, if you are within 60 meters of the marked location, you instantly return to the marked location. Phase Walk goes on cooldown for 60 seconds when used to return to the marked location.

Flashpoint Suggestion: Phase walk is likely your best bet here to instantly teleport out of AoE damage or do a mechanic quicker. No room for Telekinetic Blitz in your rotation, and outside of the two turrets in Hammer Station, most random groups will pull and fight everything at once in flashpoints, so your Force Lift would be cancelled anyway.

Operation Suggestion: Phase walk is likely your best bet here to instantly teleport out of AoE damage or do a mechanic quicker. No room for Telekinetic Blitz in your rotation, and Force Lift can't be used on most Operation targets.
