Why are the "first Jedi Council" on Tython depicted with lightsabers? The force was discovered in 36,453 BBY and the Jedi order was formed around 25,783 BBY. But, modern Lightsabers (not protosabers) were not brought to the republic untill Naga Sadow's invasion of the Republic in 5,000 BBY.

Probably just an oversight if you play WoW you'll notice this kind of thing often.

BBY = Battle before Yavin, right?

Lore over-site, or its possible that the statues are holding sword, and another possibility is that while the statues are old, they might of been created after the invention of the lightsaber.
Held the line in the "Bonus Wave" Thread.

Why does Jesus look like half of downtown Berkeley, CA?

Perceptions change with time. Isn't it also true that you go on missions to try to salvage some Jedi lore because everything is all trashed?

He is correct. The sith should be using sith swords also. Non lightsabre sword with lightsabre crystals embedded in the metal so it can deflect a photo/lightsabre strike.

Close.

BBY = Before Battle of Yavin
