The location of this NPC is unknown.

Even in an organization as diverse as the Republic Army, Yuun stands out. A member of the Gand species and hailing from the Gand homeworld, Yuun is a Findsman, a type of shamanistic tracker held in very high regard among his people. He applies his unusual training to technical tasks of every kind, resulting in a success record unmatched by any other technician in the military.

As effective as Yuun's methods are, they rarely meet with understanding or approval from his fellow soldiers. But despite his eccentricities, Yuun's fighting skill and calm approach to any challenge generally earn at least the grudging respect of the men and women he serves with.

Likes: Mysteries, respect for unusual people/beliefs, patience, self-restraint
Dislikes: Unnecessary violence, chaos, rudeness, recklessness, bragging

Primary Stat: Aim
Secondary Stat: Endurance

Primary Weapon: Electrostaff
Secondary Weapon: Generator (non-shield)

Yuun becomes exceptionally dangerous when left to fight, free of any enemy aggro. He's especially quick at tearing through standard / weak level mobs, he hits immensely hard. I've yet to get him any decent upgrades through missions or Armstech crafting due to skilling it up, but I cant wait to see the damage he can do with high end gear.

Yuun has replaced Jorgan as my "trash farming" companion, due to his superior AoE.

However, when you're fighting multiple Strong mobs or Elite mobs, you're better off switching to Elara as always.

Considering the fact that Gands, his species, are usually quite small (As seen in Jekk Jekk Tarr in Kotor 2) I would believe this is one of the tallest gands i've ever seen.
By Solis at 2013-04-19 17:52:03
Yuun is fine for elite mobs. If you're a tank the added dps will work well. As a tank, I never use Elara.

You receive this companion on Hoth.

He is melee DPS. He uses medium armor and an electrostaff.

By Darththeo at 2012-01-20 22:14:51
The Gand are not really that small, the first Gand ever seen, in Episode V came up to about Vader's Shoulder level. They aren't tall, but I would go far from calling them "quite small" .. they are about 5'3" in height ... the Jekk Jekk Tarr ones seem shorter than usual, imo. I have yet to see Yuun in game on my trooper, just on Alderaan with it.
By Zeorn at 2011-11-23 12:52:44
His species is Gand
By vorlash at 2012-01-26 21:31:26

Yuun uses heavy armor with aim. He also uses a Techstaff, not an electrostaff. Two very different things.

Sadly there aren't any moddable techstaves in the game, so the best you can do is either a crafted purple, or a blue mission reward from belsavis. Same goes with Vik's vibroswords, and Qyzen's techblades.

By wornmime at 2011-11-27 10:40:09


How do you go about upgrading these techstaffs? I want to ask this of other characters with tech weapons as well. It looks like these weapons are named for their owner, so how do you go from a green to a blue?

By snekadid at 2012-02-05 20:38:17
Vorlash, the reason theres no tech custom weapons is because theres no player chars that use them that im aware of, however i own a customizable vibrosword<which knights and warriors can use> so i know atleast 1 exists.
By tobarstep at 2012-02-19 22:13:47

I agree with Dorf. Yuun has quickly become my second-favorite companion after Elara, and I use him a lot for general questing. He's the Trooper equivalent to the Knight's Kira Carsen; he even has most of the same or similar abilities. I've even done a few elites with Yuun when I had some medpacks to spare and all my cooldowns available. I didn't exactly finish at 99% health, but it made for a very exciting fight.

Sadly, Yuun needs a Techstaff (Techblades all seem to have defensive stats on them, while a Techstaff is offensively-oriented), which is even more uncommon on my server's GTN than good Techblades. So far I've had to get by with green, vendor-purchased versions as there has yet to be a blue or purple Techstaff on the GTN that was higher than level 39.

By Tulavelir at 2012-03-05 17:35:09
Yuun can equip both Tech Blades and Tech Staves. I double checked what was listed in his abilities.
Armstechs can craft both of these. I was able to pick up a very nice crafted (purple) Tech Staff off the GTN today for about 15k creds.
By Wujon at 2012-03-16 09:36:26
He does actually have the Heavy Armor skill.
By Cyberium at 2013-01-02 03:56:41
He reminds me a lot of Tai Kaliso from Gears of War, one of my favorite characters.

Considering the higher numbers, I'm assuming that's efficiency, not critical.

By spherewalker at 2012-01-04 04:17:54
Haven?t got him yet but AUCCHH! this guy looks crazy man. can?t wait untill its my time to try him out cause if he is better than aric he is gonna be amazing for trooper vangaurds who have no probs keeping aggro.
But about the where to get better weapons i rekon you should look at the commendation vendors around the galaxy. i rekon they have weapon you can upgrade further for higher item lvl.
By Jabard at 2011-12-23 05:28:57
nope, Heavy armor
By Saint at 2011-12-06 22:26:43
If you look you will see not all staffs are named after a character so you will probably get them as quest rewards or from vendors and random drops

Did anyone else click on his name without knowing who he is, expecting a smarmy asian-looking kid?
