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 500 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

Maximum Materials Required

Note: If you reverse engineer what you make, you may end up needing less materials than listed below, so always buy them in small quantities as you go.

To start, visit any Synthweaving Trainer and learn the Synthweaving Crew Skill. All of the schematics above level 60 will need to be purchased from your Synthweaving Crew Skill Trainers.
The ability to level from 390-440 requires the purchase of Advanced Synthweaving from the Synthweaving Crafting Trainer for 10,000 credits.
