Synthweaving is the art of creating lighter outfits and armors that are imbued with supernatural qualities.

This Synthweaving Leveling Guide will show you the fastest and easiest way to level your Synthweaving Crew Skill from 1 to 600 using the least amount of materials.

The Synthweaving crew skill is used to craft armor for all Force users, including Jedi Knights, Jedi Consulars, Sith Warriors, and Sith Inquisitors. This means all three armor types including light, medium, and heavy armor.

Complementary Crew Skills

  • Archaelogy Crew Skill
  • Underworld Trading Crew Skill

What To Make

To start, visit any Synthweaving Trainer and learn the Synthweaving Crew Skill. All of the schematics listed in this guide are available to purchase from your Synthweaving Crew Skill Trainers as you level.

Note: In Game Update 4.1, you can use the Synth Bonded Attachments you craft at lower levels to craft items at higher levels, thus the exact amount of materials used will vary significantly from player to player. This section of the guide gives an overview of when you should switch to the next item to craft and depends very much on which Synth Bonded Attachments you have available. If you run out of Synth Bonded Attachments, craft more as you go (they have a very large difficulty level buffer).
