Fallen Order guide: Life, Force, and XP Restored

Learn how to get your XP back after you die

Understand what “Life, Force, and XP Restored” means Respawn Entertainment/Electronic Arts via Polygon

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order has a Dark Souls-esque way of dealing with your XP and skill points when you die. If you dismiss the tip about it quickly (like several of us did), you might end up confused about why certain enemies glow, and what that Life, Force, and XP Restored notification you get is all about.

We’ll explain it all below.

Whenever you die at the hands (or fangs or horns) of an enemy, you’ll lose your Force, XP, and skill points (and, obviously, your health). They’re not gone forever, though.

The enemy that killed you will glow gold-white after you respawn. That enemy is, effectively, holding your stuff. All you have to do to get it back is damage that enemy. You have to deal damage to their health, though. If they block your attack, you won’t get your stuff back yet.

Once you deal damage to the enemy that killed you, you’ll get a message reading:

Life, Force, and XP Restored

This returns all of your Force, XP, and skill points. It also fills up your health bar, which is a nice bonus.
