The Ninth Sister is back in Star Wars Jedi Survivor and she is more pissed off than usual after what you did in Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order. If you don’t know who she is or want a quick refresher, here’s an overview of her character in Star Wars Jedi Survivor.
The Ninth Sister Character Overview: The Ninth Sister is a character in the Star Wars universe who first appears in the video game “Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.” She is a member of the Inquisitorius, a group of Force-sensitive individuals trained by Darth Vader and tasked with hunting down Jedi who survived Order 66.
The Ninth Sister is a towering figure, with gray skin and glowing yellow eyes. She wears dark robes and wields a double-bladed lightsaber, which she uses with deadly efficiency. Despite her imposing appearance, she is known to be cunning and intelligent, relying on her wits as much as her physical strength to track down her targets.
In “Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order,” the Ninth Sister is sent to the planet Kashyyyk to capture the game’s protagonist, Cal Kestis, who is a Jedi in hiding. However, she is ultimately defeated by Cal and his companions, and is forced to flee.
In this guide, I will break down all the details you need to know about The Ninth Sister Boss and how to defeat her in Jedi Survivor.
How to Beat The Ninth Sister in Star Wars Jedi Survivor
The Ninth Sister uses a huge double-bladed lightsaber that can do a ton of damage. But I have to be honest here, while The Ninth Sister is quite intimidating on paper, her boss fight is really underwhelming. In fact, the second legendary beast, Spawn of Oggdo, is a much tougher fight compared to The Ninth Sister which is a shame.
Still, that doesn’t mean you can take this fight lightly because that would spill disaster.
The key to winning this boss fight is to learn how to parry so if you don’t master parrying, this boss fight is going to be a pain in your behind. Unlike Spawn of Oggdo and Rancor, most of The Ninth Sister’s attacks can be parried. Whether she is spinning her double-bladed lightsaber or using slash attacks, you can parry her easily. However, there are some unblockable attacks that you can not parry or block so the best way to deal with them is to side step or dodge backward.
The unblockable attacks are telegraphed with a red glow all over her body.
Most of the boss fight is close-quarters combat but sometimes when you’re a at distance The Ninth Sister will throw her saber at you. You can either parry it back to her or side step it. However, if you side step the saber throw make sure to stay out of its return route because while going back to The Ninth Sister the Saber can deal damage if you’re in the way. Here’s an example of how to parry the lightsaber throw:
Parrying the lightsaber throw is all about timing.
Parry > Attack > Parry is how you win The Ninth Sister boss fight. If you get too close you need to watch out for the lightsaber thrust attack. The thrust attack is unblockable but you can side step right before she is about to thrust her lightsaber. The move is telegraphed with a red glow. Here’a video tutorial on how to dodge the thrust attack:
Another unblockable attack is the lightsaber ground smash and combo. Basically, The Ninth Sister lifts her lightsaber up and smashes it into the ground and if you’re standing in the way, it will be your head she smashes instead of the ground. She follows up this attack with a three-slash combo and only the first two slashes can be parried but the window is too small so it is best to just dodge. Here’s how that works:
Occasionally, this boss will use Force Push and then jump in your direction while spinning her lightsaber. The attack is very easy to dodge, simply side step and you’re good to go. You can land a couple of hits but be ready to parry immediately because The Ninth Sister would never let you land more than that before counterattacking.
The general rule of thumb is that if the boss isn’t glowing red, you can parry to disrupt her animation and land a few hits. She is fast so she’ll immediately react which means you need to be prepared to step back before you get hit.
When you bring her health down to at least 25-30%, The Ninth Sister will start using Force a lot more often. The Force Pull is one of her moves and it seems you can’t do anything about it. She will pull you close to her and try to land a few hits. However, there is a good window between the pull and her hits which gives you enough time to dodge away or parry.
At this point in The Ninth Sister boss fight, the Dual Wield Stance is unlocked. It is part of the story and unlocks in this boss fight. So you for the rest of the fight you are forced to use the Dual Wield Stance. The best part about the dual wield stance is that you can simply hold the Triangle Button on PlayStation or Y on Xbox to automatically dodge most attacks including projectiles like The Ninth Sister’s lightsaber throw.
Best Combat Stance Against The Ninth Sister
The best combat stance to use in The Ninth Sister boss fight is the Double Bladed stance. It allows you to match The Ninth Sister’s attack speed which greatly helps parry her attacks. Once you get her HP low enough you get access to Dual Wield stance so for the rest of the fight you have no option but to use that stance. But the Dual Wield stance is quite effective against her so there is nothing to worry about.
