Shadow Serenity Basics Guide

Serenity

The Serenity Shadow is ever mindful that the Force ebbs and flows, and uses this knowledge to great advantage. Able to wield the Force against multiple targets while wresting vitality from the enemy, the Serenity Shadow can even stand up to opponents in close combat.

  • Role: Damage
  • Type: Damage Over time
  • Weapon: Double-bladed Lightsaber
  • Distance: Short Range
  • Mirror: Sorcerer – Hatred

Serenity for New Players

  • Serenity is a damage-over-time discipline – you’ll have to watch and track the timers of two of the attack debuffs you place on your enemies, making it a slightly harder discipline to play.
  •  Serenity is mostly melee range, which means you must be very close to your enemy to attack, which can be harder for new players to get used to, but you have a jump ability to help you close the gap between you and your enemy, force speed to get there faster, and one of your main longer-range abilities will root your enemy in place so they can’t move.
  •  This style is very mobile and you can easily run and jump around while fighting without any issues! Two of your abilities have a longer range if you get a little lost too.
  • If you are able to watch your debuff timers, this discipline is decently easy to learn with a guide.

How to play a Serenity Shadow

You can start playing Serenity at level 1. To start playing Serenity, you will need to first create a Shadow 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 Serenity 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 Serenity Shadow until you’re ready to read and learn from a true level 80 guide.

  • Force Breach and Sever Force are your main Damage over Time (DoT) abilities that needs to be constantly on your target. Set them once and only re-apply when they’re about to fall off. Both of these abilities will make up the bulk of your damage output when kept on the target 100% of the time!
  • Squelch is your third DoT but it works a little differently. It ticks and runs out much faster than the other two but does a ton of damage. Keep an eye on this ability and make sure to use it whenever it sparkles.
  • Force in Balance buffs the damage your DoTs do greatly, so use it whenever it’s available. 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.
  • Serenity Strike is your signature lightsaber move, and is next in your priority to use when Force in Balance is done and your DoTs are still on the target!
  • Saber Strike will be your filler ability between DoT abilities so you don’t run out of energy.

More than 3 Enemies

  • Whirling Blow is a great Area Damage attack because it will spread your DoTs from one target to all others caught in the same attack! Put your DoTs on the highest health enemy and then whirling blow to spread it to all of them. Spam it when you have nothing else to use for AoE as well.
  • Force in Balance will boost the effectiveness of all your DoTs on multiple targets, so drop this on as many as you can after spreading with whirling blow.

Extra Tips

  •  Shadow Stride is an exceptionally useful mobility move that instantly moves you to the target. Will also enable you to use Spinning Strike below:
  •  Spinning Strike is another melee ability you can work into the rotation: above 30% HP on your target it will only be made useable by Shadow Striding (and will glow), but can be used more often below this amount of HP as a powerful filler attack and a way to reset the cooldown of Squelch.
  • If you have extra energy, you can replace Saber Strike with Double Strike when your Force energy allows.
  •  Feeling Spicy? Force Potency can be used to buff the damage of attacks like Serenity and Spinning Strike, and it’s cooldown is reduced by critical hits from your DoTs. Activate on cooldown.
  • Mind Maze is a special ability sometimes known as a CC, a Crowd Control, a sleep or a sap. It can only be used while you are stealthed and out of combat, and it is used to put enemies to sleep. Sleeping enemies allows your group to sneak past them, or sometimes just keeps them out of the fight as long as no one attacks them. While you can’t put bosses to sleep, if you are playing Flashpoints, stealthers are often expected to go into stealth and put smaller enemies in-between bosses to sleep.
Level 80

Before you play…

Making your Force Breach (every 17 seconds) and Sever Force (every 17 seconds) debuffs more visible on your enemy can make it easier to know when they are about to fall off.

  1. Press ESC on your keyboard, choose Interface Editor from the menu
  2. Select the “Target Frame” box where the portrait of your enemy would appear
  3. In the center box, scroll down and check 🔲 Highlight Debuff, then scroll down more and check 🔲 Personal Debuffs
  4. Save. This will show your own debuffs highlighted in gold so you don’t mix them up with your groups’!

Unlike many other classes, you will need to watch your debuffs more closely while playing Serenity.

Defensive & Healing Abilities

Use these abilities to help yourself stay alive. The Shadow has these defensive and healing abilities and you'll want to know where they are in a difficult fight.

Useful Abilities

These abilities may not be directly for attacking, but they are used heavily by skilled Shadows in combat to turn the tide of a fight.

  • Meditation - Regeneration - Regain health out of battle.Level 1
  • Force Stun - Stun - You can use your short stun on weaker enemies to stop them from running around, from casting abilities, to stop them from damaging you, or just to keep them out of the fight in general.Level 7
  • Stealth - Stealth - Enter Stealth to sneak around or sneak up to enemies. Stronger enemies can see you coming, but you can sneak past weaker ones. You can only enter Stealth when you are outside of combat unless you use your Combat Stealth ability.Level 10
  • Force of Will - Stun Break - If you are stunned and can’t move, you can use this ability to unstun yourself.Level 10
  • Force Speed - Movement - Increases movement speed by 150% for 2 seconds. Does not break stealth.Level 15
  • Mind Snap - Interrupt - Every class has an interrupt ability that allows them to interrupt an enemy while they are casting. 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. Using your interrupt in combat is very useful as it can prevent the enemy from damaging you, or sometimes even prevent them from stunning you or knocking you back!Level 19
  • Mind Maze - Crowd Control - 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.Level 19
  • Force Wave - Optional Knockback Level 27 Option 1/3 - Pushes enemies back.Level 27
  • Force Cloak - Combat Stealth - Enter Stealth while you are in combat, either to run away, to sneak off and heal up, or to take advantage of stealth in the fight. If you enter Combat Stealth while you are alone or all your team mates are dead, the fight may reset.Level 31
  • Mass Mind Control - Detaunt - 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.Level 31
  • Force Slow - Slow - Slows slow the enemy down, making it hard for them to run away.Level 35
  • Shadow Stride - Leap - Jump to a faraway enemy.Level 60
  • Force Lift - Optional Crowd Control Level 68 Option 2/3 - Your crowd control (CC) is a special type of stun you can only use outside of combat.

Tree Choices

As you level up, you will be able to make choices about how you play your Serenity Shadow 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 Serenity Shadow, 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 Serenity Shadow.

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 Serene Balance, Balancing Field, and Pervasive Balance.

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.

Serene Balance

Force in Balance restores 5 Force for each enemy hit and reduces the cooldown of Force Potency by 5 seconds for each hit.

Force in Balance restores 5 Force for each enemy hit and reduces the cooldown of Force Potency by 5 seconds for each hit.

Balancing Field

Force in Balance gains an additional ability charge, allowing it to be used again before going on cooldown. Killing an enemy or activating Force Potency generates one charge.

Force in Balance gains an additional ability charge, allowing it to be used again before going on cooldown. Killing an enemy or activating Force Potency generates one charge.

Pervasive Balance

Force in Balance deals 15% more damage and increases your armor penetration by 12.5% for each target it hits for 10 seconds.

Force in Balance deals 15% more damage and increases your armor penetration by 12.5% for each target it hits for 10 seconds.

General Suggestion: Balancing Field - This choice will result in the most extra Force in Balances per fight, which also makes it the biggest DPS boost of the 3. Remember to activate Force Potency constantly!

Level 27 Choice

Choose from one of three Shadow abilities at Level 27, you can only have one of these options at any given time. Your options as a Serenity Shadow for the Level 27 choice are Force Wave, Shadow Spike, and Force Magnetism.

Force Wave

Deals kinetic damage and knocks back up to 8 enemies within a 15-meter cone in front of you, unbalancing them and immobilizing them for 5 seconds. Standard and weak enemies are additionally knocked down for 3 seconds. Direct damage dealt after 2 seconds ends the immobilize effect prematurely.

Pushes enemies back.

Shadow Spike

Dealing damage with Shadow Strike from stealth stuns the target for 2 seconds. Standard and weak enemies are knocked down.

Dealing damage with Shadow Strike from stealth stuns the target for 2 seconds. Standard and weak enemies are knocked down.

Force Magnetism

Force Cloak increases movement speed by 50%. Force Speed lasts 1 second longer and slows all enemies within 5 meters by 75% for 2.5 seconds when activated.

Force Cloak increases movement speed by 50%. Force Speed lasts 1 second longer and slows all enemies within 5 meters by 75% for 2.5 seconds when activated.

Flashpoint Suggestion: Force Wave - You can use Force Wave to knock enemies off ledges for an instant kill, or Shadow Spike for a stun if no ledges will be available. Doesn't work on bosses or stronger enemies.

Operation Suggestion: Force Wave - You can use Force Wave to knock enemies off ledges for an instant kill, or Shadow Spike for a stun if no ledges will be available. Note that in operations lots of enemies will be immune to knockbacks.

Solo Suggestion: Force Magnetism - Force Magnetism can really help a stealthy character solo certain content faster, but for tangible combat benefits, you can also take Force Wave to knock enemies off ledges for an instant kill, or Shadow Spike for a stun if no ledges will be available.

Level 39 Choice: Squelch Change

Choose from one of three ways that you want Squelch to change at level 39. Your options are Destruction Ray, Ensue, and Smite.

Squelch

Squelches the target with mighty force, dealing kinetic damage initially, plus an additional kinetic damage over 6 seconds. The target also becomes Vulnerable for 45 seconds, increasing the damage taken from Force attacks by 5%. Replaces Project.

Destruction Ray

Squelch now deals all its periodic damage over 1 second.

Squelch now deals all its periodic damage over 1 second.

Ensue

Dealing damage with Squelch applies Ensue to the target, increasing the critical hit chance of your periodic effects by 20%. Lasts for 10 seconds.

Dealing damage with Squelch applies Ensue to the target, increasing the critical hit chance of your periodic effects by 20%. Lasts for 10 seconds.

Smite

Whenever a target affected by your Squelch dies, it bounces to the nearest target, instantly dealing its initial damage and priming the target for being Smited, causing Squelch to deal an additional 25% damage on initial hit.

Whenever a target affected by your Squelch dies, it bounces to the nearest target, instantly dealing its initial damage and priming the target for being Smited, causing Squelch to deal an additional 25% damage on initial hit.

General Suggestion: Ensue - As a build focused on periodic damage, a 20% crit chance for them is extremely strong. The other choices kind of change how Squelch works but doesn't return nearly as much damage bonus as this choice does for free.

Level 43 Choice

Choose from one of three Shadow abilities at Level 43, you can only have one of these options at any given time. Your options as a Serenity Shadow for the Level 43 choice are Battle Readiness, Longing Force, and Hallowing.

Battle Readiness

Ready yourself with the Force, immediately restoring 15% of your max health. While active, Battle Readiness increases the life stolen by your abilities by 50%, the damage of Force Technique by 50%, the chance to trigger Force Technique by 25%, and healing you whenever it is triggered. The triggered healing cannot occur more than once per second. Requires a double-bladed lightsaber or electrostaff.

Longing Force

The critical hit chance, critical hit damage, and life stolen of your periodic effects is increased by 10%. Whenever you are healed by a Serenity discipline effect, you generate 2 Force.

The critical hit chance, critical hit damage, and life stolen of your periodic effects is increased by 10%. Whenever you are healed by a Serenity discipline effect, you generate 2 Force.

Hallowing

Killing an enemy or activating Force Potency resets the cooldowns of all melee attacks and Squelch and increases their damage by 10% for 20 seconds. Stacks up to 2 times.

Killing an enemy or activating Force Potency resets the cooldowns of all melee attacks and Squelch and increases their damage by 10% for 20 seconds. Stacks up to 2 times.

General Suggestion: Hallowing - Being able to use Force Potency to reset the cooldowns of Squelch and your melee strikes is huge, as they are the rotational abilities with the longest cooldowns. Learn to use Force potency at the right times with this choice and get huge DPS gains!

Level 51 Choice

Choose from one of three Shadow abilities at Level 51, you can only have one of these options at any given time. Your options as a Serenity Shadow for the Level 51 choice are Intangible Spirit, Sturdiness , and Fade.

Intangible Spirit

All Area effect damage is reduced by 60% for 15 seconds after Mass Mind Control is activated.

All Area effect damage is reduced by 60% for 15 seconds after Mass Mind Control is activated.

Sturdiness

Activating Deflection grants 6 seconds of immunity to stun, sleep, lift, and incapacitating effects.

Activating Deflection grants 6 seconds of immunity to stun, sleep, lift, and incapacitating effects.

Fade

Reduces the cooldown of Force Cloak by 30 seconds and extends its duration by 5 seconds.

Reduces the cooldown of Force Cloak by 30 seconds and extends its duration by 5 seconds.

General Suggestion: Intangible Spirit - As a damage player, the number one source of damage done to you is likely area damage (so long as there is a tank or tank companion around). This choice makes you MUCH more durable. That said, if you find yourself using Force Cloak a ton, Fade is also a pretty versatile choice.

Level 64 Choice

Choose from one of three Shadow abilities at Level 64, you can only have one of these options at any given time. Your options as a Serenity Shadow for the Level 64 choice are Kinetic Surge, Force Phase, and Lambaste.

Kinetic Surge

Increases your movement speed by 15% and your effective stealth level by 10. Activating Project, Psychokinetic Blast, or Squelch increases your movement speed by 50% for 9 seconds. This effect cannot occur more than once every 18 seconds.

Force Phase

Force Speed and Shadow Stride grants Force Phase, removing all movement-impairing effects and granting immunity to them for 2 seconds.

Lambaste

Increases the damage dealt by Whirling Blow by 25%.

Increases the damage dealt by Whirling Blow by 25%.

General Suggestion: Force Phase - Slow/root break is a great default choice for Serenity as unlike Infiltration it really doesn't need a buff to whirling blow. Kinetic Surge is also viable as an all-around movement speed boost.

Level 68 Choice

Choose from one of three Shadow abilities at Level 68, you can only have one of these options at any given time. Your options as a Serenity Shadow for the Level 68 choice are Cleaving Cut, Force Lift, and Resilience.

Cleaving Cut

Strikes targets in a cone, dealing weapon damage and slowing their movement speed by 50% for 3 seconds and healing you for 50% of the damage dealt. Requires a double-bladed lightsaber or electrostaff.

Strikes targets in a cone, dealing weapon damage and slowing their movement speed by 50% for 3 seconds and healing you for 50% of the damage dealt. Requires a double-bladed lightsaber or electrostaff.

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 and stuns the target for 2 seconds.

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.

Resilience

Purges all hostile removable effects and increases your chance to resist Force and tech attacks by 200% for 3 seconds. Does not break Stealth.

Purges all hostile removable effects and increases your chance to resist Force and tech attacks by 200% for 3 seconds. Does not break Stealth.

General Suggestion: Resilience - A self cleanse is very useful in pretty much every form of group content not to mention this is an extremely powerful "usually-only-for-tanks" defensive cooldown! Take as default for sure.

Level 73 Choice

Choose from one of three Shadow abilities at Level 73, you can only have one of these options at any given time. Your options as a Serenity Shadow for the Level 73 choice are Stalker's Swiftness, Celerity, and Cloak of Resilience.

Stalker's Swiftness

Shadow Stride grants Stalker's Swiftness, allowing your next Spinning Strike to be used on any target, regardless of remaining health. Stalker's Swiftness lasts for 10 seconds. Additionally, if the target of your Shadow Stride is killed within 10 seconds of using Shadow Stride, Shadow Stride's cooldown is reset.

Shadow Stride grants Stalker's Swiftness, allowing your next Spinning Strike to be used on any target, regardless of remaining health. Stalker's Swiftness lasts for 10 seconds. Additionally, if the target of your Shadow Stride is killed within 10 seconds of using Shadow Stride, Shadow Stride's cooldown is reset.

Celerity

Reduces the cooldown of Mind Snap by 2 seconds, Force of Will by 30 seconds, and Force Speed by 5 seconds.

Reduces the cooldown of Mind Snap by 2 seconds, Force of Will by 30 seconds, and Force Speed by 5 seconds.

Cloak of Resilience

Activating Force Cloak grants 2 seconds of Resilience.

Activating Force Cloak grants 2 seconds of Resilience.

General Suggestion: Stalker's Swiftness - This choice is pretty rotationally important to Serenity due to the Spinning Strike reset. If you can handle the DPS loss, Cloak of Resilience is still a strong defensive option.

Force Cloak increases movement speed by 50%. Force Speed lasts 1 second longer and slows all enemies within 5 meters by 75% for 2.5 seconds when activated.

Solo Suggestion: Force Magnetism can really help a stealthy character solo certain content faster, but for tangible combat benefits, you can also take Force Wave to knock enemies off ledges for an instant kill, or Shadow Spike for a stun if no ledges will be available.

LvL31
Force CloakCombat Stealth

Uses the Force to make you vanish from sight, immediately exiting combat, purging all hostile removable effects and entering stealth mode. For 10 seconds, you become virtually undetectable.

LvL31
Mass Mind ControlDetaunt

Immediately reduces threat towards all current enemies by a moderate amount. Player targets deal 30% less damage for 6 seconds when attacking anyone other than you.

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.

LvL35
Force SlowSlow 10m (short range)

Deals kinetic damage and slows the target's movement speed by 50% for 6 seconds.

Slows slow the enemy down, making it hard for them to run away.

Dealing damage with Squelch applies Ensue to the target, increasing the critical hit chance of your periodic effects by 20%. Lasts for 10 seconds.

General Suggestion: As a build focused on periodic damage, a 20% crit chance for them is extremely strong. The other choices kind of change how Squelch works but doesn't return nearly as much damage bonus as this choice does for free.

LvL39
SmiteOptional Passive Level 39 Option 3/3

Whenever a target affected by your Squelch dies, it bounces to the nearest target, instantly dealing its initial damage and priming the target for being Smited, causing Squelch to deal an additional 25% damage on initial hit.

Killing an enemy or activating Force Potency resets the cooldowns of all melee attacks and Squelch and increases their damage by 10% for 20 seconds. Stacks up to 2 times.

General Suggestion: Being able to use Force Potency to reset the cooldowns of Squelch and your melee strikes is huge, as they are the rotational abilities with the longest cooldowns. Learn to use Force potency at the right times with this choice and get huge DPS gains!

LvL43
Force StrikePassive

Melee attacks that strike a target affected by your Force Breach grant Force Strike, finishing the cooldown on Squelch and making your next Squelch consume no Force. Additionally, activating Shadow Stride grants Force Strike, but Force Strike cannot occur more than once every 9 seconds.

All Area effect damage is reduced by 60% for 15 seconds after Mass Mind Control is activated.

All Area effect damage is reduced by 60% for 15 seconds after Mass Mind Control is activated.

General Suggestion: As a damage player, the number one source of damage done to you is likely area damage (so long as there is a tank or tank companion around). This choice makes you MUCH more durable. That said, if you find yourself using Force Cloak a ton, Fade is also a pretty versatile choice.

LvL51
Sturdiness Optional Passive Level 51 Option 2/3

Activating Deflection grants 6 seconds of immunity to stun, sleep, lift, and incapacitating effects.

Force Speed and Shadow Stride grants Force Phase, removing all movement-impairing effects and granting immunity to them for 2 seconds.

Force Speed and Shadow Stride grants Force Phase, removing all movement-impairing effects and granting immunity to them for 2 seconds.

General Suggestion: Slow/root break is a great default choice for Serenity as unlike Infiltration it really doesn't need a buff to whirling blow. Kinetic Surge is also viable as an all-around movement speed boost.

LvL64
LambasteOptional Passive Level 64 Option 3/3

Increases the damage dealt by Whirling Blow by 25%.

LvL68

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 and stuns the target for 2 seconds.

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.

LvL68
ResilienceOptional Defensive Level 68 Option 3/3

Purges all hostile removable effects and increases your chance to resist Force and tech attacks by 200% for 3 seconds. Does not break Stealth.

Purges all hostile removable effects and increases your chance to resist Force and tech attacks by 200% for 3 seconds. Does not break Stealth.

General Suggestion: A self cleanse is very useful in pretty much every form of group content not to mention this is an extremely powerful "usually-only-for-tanks" defensive cooldown! Take as default for sure.

LvL68
Crush SpiritPassive

Your damaging periodic effects have a 30% chance to trigger Crush Spirit, which finishes the active cooldown on Spinning Strike and makes your next Spinning Strike usable on a target with any health level. This effect cannot occur more than once every 15 seconds.

LvL73
Stalker's SwiftnessOptional Passive Level 73 Option 1/3

Shadow Stride grants Stalker's Swiftness, allowing your next Spinning Strike to be used on any target, regardless of remaining health. Stalker's Swiftness lasts for 10 seconds. Additionally, if the target of your Shadow Stride is killed within 10 seconds of using Shadow Stride, Shadow Stride's cooldown is reset.

Additionally, if the target of your Shadow Stride is killed within 10 seconds of using Shadow Stride, Shadow Stride's cooldown is reset.

General Suggestion: This choice is pretty rotationally important to Serenity due to the Spinning Strike reset. If you can handle the DPS loss, Cloak of Resilience is still a strong defensive option.

LvL73
CelerityOptional Passive Level 73 Option 2/3

Reduces the cooldown of Mind Snap by 2 seconds, Force of Will by 30 seconds, and Force Speed by 5 seconds.
