What are all of the level/tiers Nick Gillard or George Lucs have given us?

Looking through the forum, I see this thread http://www.killermovies.com/forums/f6/t646531.html where we get:

Yoda: 8
Mace Windu: 8
Obi Wan: 8
Anakin: 8 or 9

If I recall, we also have, from other quotes:

Yoda, Sidious: 9
Mace: 8, bordering 9
RoTS Obi Wan: 8
AoTC Obi Wan: 7
AoTC Anakin: 7
Dooku: 8
Maul: 8

Am I missing/mistaking anything?

There's two different scaling systems. The one consistently used is:

9 - Anakin, Sidious, Yoda, Mace*
8 - Mace*, Maul, Dooku, ROTS Obi-Wan
7 - Kit Fisto, AOTC Anakin, TPM Obi-Wan*
6 - TPM Obi-Wan*

* They range between these positions.

These are the ones I can think of.

The other one is just out of 9 levels instead of 10, so you get:

8 - Anakin (skimming 9 - aka perfection), Sidious, Yoda
7 - Obi-Wan

And presumably everything else falls in-line as well.

It's not clear if this exists in legends and in canon it's not clear if Gilliard's word still matters.

Pablo states they still use Gillard's archival footage for Canon.

And Lucas created this, so, if you're using the old system rankings, it's G-Canon.

Maul only being 1 tier under Palpatine is still kinda stupid though, if he really wasn't going all-out in the Mandalore fight.

The gap between tiers grow across each tier, so the gap between tier 6 and 7 is bigger than 5 to 6, the gap between 7 to 8 is bigger than 6 to 7, etc.

So, the gap between Sidious and Maul is enormous in this system.

Fair enough.

TPM Obi-Wan in Tier 7 is specifically when he's amped by dark rage though right?

That's the working theory.

I reckon Jinn is an 8, but a low 8, a little below Maul.

He's still second only to Yoda when it comes to mastery of Ataru, no doubt.

Jinn should really be better than he was... I think it's safe to assume TPM wasn't his prime.

Agreed. Take ten years off and he'd rape Maul I believe.

I mean I doubt that but he'd put up a better fight for sure.

Palpatine have official promotion as TIER 9 in Nick Gillard's system. TIER 7 have stated to be highest but Palpatine have higher. George Lucas promotes Palpatine as beyond power but Palpatine is beyond skill also it seems. This canon revelation should be shared to educate fellow members on proper ground realities of Palpatine.

Do we still take Lucas's statements as Canon, then?

That's not exactly what "Legends" is though.

G-Canon and the rest of the Canon hierarchy was disestablished before the Canon/Legends split, yeah.

I can see why some people would find it difficult to adopt the levels in Legends because Gillard operates by using the levels instead of the traditional lightsaber forms. He implies in that 2015 interview that it's one or the other. So we either drop the idea of the seven forms and go with the ten levels or we don't.

They're not mutually exclusive.

There's no direct issue with ranking Anakin as a level 9 and him using Djem So. Obviously the issue is something else. It's stupid to think otherwise.

His issues were likely about how he crafted unique lightsaber forms for each of the characters, yet the seven forms reverse-engineered and standardized them.

Pablo has also come out and said the same thing - that they don't take the forms seriously and more-or-less recognize each character has their own style.

There is because Djem So is a standarised form, lol. The whole idea of having seven names is because they distilled styles to seven general forms, obviously acknowledging that each person fights differently but not enough to have an entirely new form. Djem So doesn't exist in Gillard's mind. He just doesn't factor it in. In fact, he describes his own levels as "how well they've learnt, not how well they fight".

Take for instance the RotS novel talking about Obi-Wan's style being defensive and giving ground being "his way". Gillard instead describes Obi-Wan's style as aggressive. RotS novel, again mentions Dooku's Makashi vs Anakin's Djem So, whereas with Gillard it would just be Anakin being better than Dooku. There's a difference between Gillard and Legends.
