Bao-Dur


Recommended Posts

If I am playing an evil character do I need to curry favor with Bao-Dur? It seems I won't be able to level him as a guardian at all so do I need to gain influence on him? Thanks!

 

I hadn't been able to make Bao a jedi with Neg influence..

 

As I never get influence for killing the Mandalorian soldier or refusing to give the Republic spy the Spacesport Visa.

...huh? If I'm understanding you right, you most certainly can turn Bao-Dur into a Dark Guardian. It's easiest if you're willing to take a few lightside points to get the quick influence, but if you're dead set against LS, there are a few morally neutral things you can do instead. (Like repairing the speeder on Nar Shadaa, or the atmosphere-thingie quest line on Dantooine.)

 

Just steer clear of the negative influence hits until you have enough influence to get the line "You know, having you here has had an effect on me, General..." and poof: you've got yourself a darkside zabrak. Then go nuts with the DS points.

There's even a way to get an influence point with Bao and DS points. On Nar Shaddaa, the beggar by the central pit who turns the Exchange thugs on you: Force persuade the thugs to jump in the pit! DS points for being nasty , influence with Bao for helping the beggar...

Just watch out if you have Atton in your party, because the influence could go to him instead.

 

(why do I get the feeling I just wrote about this not long ago? Wasn't there a thread about this last week?)

I didn't realize there was a "queue"... I just thought it was completely random.

It may be that way but i'm not sure, i just know that sometimes it is irritating when i am trying to get influence with a character, and instead i get it with the other person in my party.

 

I just thought that there might be a queue or some other system where the game decides who will give you influence.

You find Bao-Dur later when you hit the Telos surface.                    |

|                                                                            |

| What you Get: Like Atton he can eventually become a Jedi if you get enough |

|              Influence with him.                                          |

|                                                                            |

| Lowdown: Gaining influence with Bao-Dur is almost entirely dependent on    |

|          him being in the party to see your actions. There are no ways to  |

|          increase his influence through general conversation on the Ebon  |

|          Hawk.                                                            |

|                                                                            |

|          For Dark Siders, Bao-Dur will ALWAYS lose influence when you      |

|          murder the innocent, UNLESS Kreia is there as well. This is the  |

|          Kreia Effect. If this happens, you will lose Influence with      |

|          Kreia, unless you ask "What would you do?" and accept her        |

|          judgment. Then her influence evens out.                          |

|                                                                            |

|                                < TELOS >                                  |

|                                                                            |

|    - Hidden Jedi Base - When you get Bao-Dur out of his cell, tell him    |

|      that it isn't his fault for an easy influence gain.                  |

|                                                                            |

|                              < DANTOOINE >                                |

|                                                                            |

|    - Crystal/Kinrath Cave - Follow the Atmospheric Sensors quest that    |

|      Saedhe gives you, then find the sensors in the cave ("rubble")      |

|      just past the first column. You need either a 4 Awareness or 15      |

|      Repair here to either let Bao-Dur look at it, or look at it          |

|      yourself. Either way is worth an Influence bump.                    |

|                                                                            |

|    - Near Khoonda - Show compassion on Akkere, the sullustann droid      |

|      merchant to gain influence with Bao-Dur.                            |

|                                                                            |

|    - Near Khoonda - Bao-Dur, Atton and Visas will gain influence if      |

|      you give Saedhe the Atmospheric Sensors for 3000 after commenting    |

|      on the hidden intelligence gathering equipment.                      |

|                                                                            |

|                                                                            |

|    - Main Area - Help the guy getting accosted by the Exchange            |

|      thugs (the one who says that you have their mone), send the thugs    |

|      on their way, and demand nothing from the man in return. This is    |

|      one of the few instances where you can do a Dark Side action and    |

|      get Influence (Force Persuade them to jump into the pit). Bao-Dur    |

|      gives you his compassion line, and you get influence.                |

|                                                                            |

|    - Docks - Take Kreia and one other companion (Atton, Bao-Dur,          |

|      Disciple or Handmaiden) and complete the Lootra quest to the Light  |

|      Side, such that she is rescued. Return to Lootra with Kreia and the  |

|      other person, Kreia gets mad, but doesn't lose influence. Keep      |

|      defending your actions here, and say that "Say what you will, but    |

|      if it meant your life, there is nothing I would not do... for you,  |

|      or any of my allies."  Bao-Dur says "thanks" and you get            |

|      influence.                                                          |

|                                                                            |

|    - Refugee Area - As with Atton above, if you fix the Airspeeder        |

|      yourself, then have Bao-Dur check your work, you will gain          |

|      influence.                                                          |

|                                                                            |

|    - Refugee Area - As with Atton above, find the sick man near the      |

|      entrance to the Refugee camp and heal him with a Treat Injury to    |

|      gain influence.                                                      |

|                                                                            |

|                                < ONDERON >                                |

|                                                                            |

|    - Dxun - Find the Mandalorean trapped up on the ridge, help him down,  |

|      then promise not to turn him in for influence with Bao-Dur.          |

|                                                                            |

|    - Cantina - If you give one of your "Open" starport visas to the      |

|      Republic spy, Bao-Dur will be impressed and give you Influence.      |

|                                                                            |

|    - Merchant District - Use Force Persuade (Dominate Mind required)      |

|      to prevent Ponlar's riot in the town to gain influence with          |

|      Bao-Dur.                                                            |

He will gradually become more Darkside as you gain more Influence with him (if you're DS yourself, coming to mirror your alignment), but if you do "Darkside point" actions around him, he'll still lose Influence like a goody two-shoes.

 

So, go to the party screen and dump him before you slaughter some innocent, for instance. Save your game often.

 

That way, you can keep him nice and creepy, like this:

BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

 

Actually, I find Bao-Dur is not that bad as a Jedi. He only sucks with blasters (I found, anyway)
