Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Tips

Defeat the Rancor with ease (Taris Sewer System)
(Created on Normal difficulty)

You will need 2-3 frag grenades, and MUST have 2 or more poison grenades.

Before entering the room with the Rancor, enter solo mode, and have your two ally characters stand far away from the door, so they won't rush in and get mauled by the Rancor (they're going to want the experience from killing Rancy' too).

Save your game here. Then...

Enter alone, and carefully walk towards the rancor and stop as soon as you get a red target lock on it. The Rancor will not chase you just yet, so you get a free shot at it. Toss a poison grenade and make sure you check to see if the saving throw fails and the Rancor is poisoned.

Once he's poisoned he will attack you. DO NOT RETURN FIRE. Head back into the hallway and the Rancor will ignore you, while taking poison damage. Poison isn't affected by armor class, so this is an even more effective way of taking the bug brute down, so you won't have to waste 10-16 grenades on it.

Once the poison effects wear off, he'll go somewhat docile again. Creep into the room again, and lob another poison grenade. Check to make sure he's poisoned, then rush back to the hallway. Let the poison run its course, and when finished, the Rancor should have about 10% HP left or less. Now you can enter the room and throw a frag grenade or two at it to finish it off easy.
