He can't feel... not just emotions, but he can't feel sunlight hitting his skin, or the smell of something pleasant. He sacrificed everything that makes life... life. Ironic. Sure, there may be less costly methods.. but I'm sure they don't come without consequences.
Think you might wanna wrap a spoiler tag around that m8 x) just noticed.

Well, established, in-game there's Lord Draagh's commentary that we'd love to see elaborated on outside the Juggernaut Skill tree.

well i don't know about every character... but for the inquisitor it remains almost within the realms of possibility.

Remember, the Inquisitor is physically able to handle limitless power without breaking down, due to the whole
Spoiler


so in theory she could certainly gain power equal to or greater then the current Emperor, all while retaining her sanity.
and if she does so then Immortality would logically be a trivial feat.
an absolute love that will bring warmth to a frozen world....

That is not even the true cost of living forever.

The real cost is that it is an absolute certainty that everyone you ever know and care for will die and leave you behind, and everything you like will always end never to come back. And there is the sheer mind numbing boredom of the millenniums weighing down upon you as you run out of new things to experience after doing everything to the point where it becomes boring.

That is the one true down-side to living forever..

But to be honest, i could probably live with it.

And if i ever got bored i could allways just get myself killed, afterall it's Living Indeffinatly.. not complete immortality.

why the hell would you want to live forever.

Extended age for a few centuries sure, but forever?

Well...for the Sith, it would be the total collapse of the Sith Empire that eventually happens. Or the creation of a Sith Empire with someone else on the throne.

For the Jedi, the galaxy coming down around their ears would consist of a galactic Civil War, immediately followed by the death of the Jedi and a galactic civil war, and the creation of a Sith Empire. Followed by a war between whatever follows that and the reborn Sith Empire.
