I'm a noob and I'm picking up all sorts of drops for my Jedi Knight, but I'm not sure which ones to use. May anyone suggest which traits I should be increasing? Thanks

Strength is the key stat for JKs. Until you are at lvl 50, that is the stat you should be looking for.

Depends what your advanced class is.

Sentinel = Strength first then endurance
Guardian = Endurance first then strength
Darth Kaa'tana 50 Juggernaut Master G'reyle 55 Guardian
Master Judaes 50 Sentinel Darth Venim 50 Marauder
Darth An'ath 50 Sorcerer Darth G'alen 55 Juggernaut

Even if you are a tank, if you solo the majority of the time you want Strength over Endurance. As a tank you are already taking a DPS hit and your companion cannot do all the work . Strength wins fights. Endurance makes fights last longer. Which do you prefer?

With stims and prototype Might gear, my Guardian (starting Taris) is at 130 DPS. Kira is sitting at 190. If I switch to end over str his DPS is even worse. Until I switched to Might gear, I found Kira taking aggro away from me because of her damage output. With Guard and taunt it's not so bad now but still you cannot Endurance your way to winning a fight. You need Str to win.
