Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Life and Force Essence guide - Where to find every max health and Force upgrade

Become one with Force Essence and raise your max health

Here are the locations of every maximum health upgrade and Force Essence in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order to help you defeat the near-upstoppable Empire.

In the absence of Jedi, the forces of evil have grown strong. To help bring peace to the galaxy in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, you are going to need every advantage you can find. Here is where to locate every Life Essence and Force Essence to upgrade your maximum health and Force.

You can find Essence upgrades across all the planets you visit in Jedi Fallen Order, from the swamps of Bogano, to the wind-swept cliffs of Zeffo, to the jungles of Kashyyyk and beyond.

Once you reach a planet, not all of its Secrets are accessible straight away. We've numbered the Essences in the rough order in which we acquired them.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Life and Force Essence locations

Zeffo Health and Force Essence locations

Life Essence 2 - Gusty Bluffs - After the first rotating windmill, look up and you’ll see a meditation point. Freeze the platform to give you an angle that you can jump up to the ledge. Go up the hill next to it and there’s another windmill. On the other side there’s a door on your left. Inside is the health upgrade force echo.

Force Essence 2 - Tomb of Eilram - This echo upgrade is collected by completing the ball puzzle room in the Tomb of Eilram - check out the linked guide if you need help with the solution.
