No lower than they were when the Empire wiped them out. And quite honestly, the Legacy Era is sketchy at best. You essentially had a couple of Empire fanboys go nuts writing comics and create a time period where it's one empire vs. another.

You could say it was an all time low for the entire galaxy, since Krayt's Sith pretty much rule the galaxy, and instead of the Rebel Alliance, you have... the Alliance-in-Exile???

Seriously, the writing behind those comics is quite loose. Cade Skywalker is a character created just because the executives at Lucasfilm probably refused to approve the series unless there was a blatant tie-in to the film era.

I personally think any of these Old Republic Jedi have a pretty good chance of winning a duel vs. PT Jedi (with the exception of perhaps Mace Windu), simply because they were not only adept in the Force as students of Ossus masters, but they had proven in actual war they were experts with a lightsaber.

I also have to disagree that war makes Jedi weaker because it tests their resolve as well as their skill. Assuming they survive and are not turned to the Dark Side, I only see this experience strengthening a Jedi.

That's basically the point of this thread, to point out that the Prequel Jedi lacked practical expertise with combat. One of the big arguments for the Prequel Jedi is the rambling list of how many forms they've all mastered and so forth. However, there's a huge lopsidedness to this because the films have been explored in almost painful depth and elaborated on with two TV series and multiple novels, comics, and games. The Old Republic Era is much less developed in terms of specific characters and their abilities, rather little is known except about a select few characters.

Not to mention the fact that Star Wars is a very stagnant universe, with only small, incremental improvements made to anything over time. So it seems to run counter to the themes which tie the universe together to have sudden, dramatic improvements made in the lightsaber styles by peacetime practitioners.
