If Pao was what the newsletter claims he is, he'd of actually been good.

Newsletter: "...or bolster his allies' turn meter with his special battle cry, Sa'kalla!"

Reality: Sa'kalla grants allies a plain old offense up for two turns. Pao and Pao alone gets a max of 40% turn meter on use (according to tool tip)

A fast and zetaed Pao COULD have been a secret turn meter generator for rebels. Instead, he's likely to be just a screaming potato.

  • But real-talk. What's with this inaccurate newsletter description? Or is the tool tip inaccurate and Pao is actually a turn meter generating beast? The world wants to know, @CG_Kozispoon @CG_TopHat
  • I think it's funny how he has a 12 turn CD. So unless you make a team revolving around him, after three turns, he's useless. Even if you do, DT and DN will just increase cooldowns and the rest of the team will kill the multiattackers, leaving a character that will only use its basic to defend itself.

    While I also consider Pao a waste, you are wrong with cooldown increase. He is actually great against this ability from dn due to the recurring CD decrease from his unique.

    Considering how lame his special abilities are, id argue hes even worse using them. His zeta is actually fairly cool if you toss him in a fast multi attack team, but if he's sacrificing damage and a turn of up to 3 basics (so 30 turn meter in a single turn under wedge or chirpa lead) for one of his underwhelming specials, you're even worse off. I'd of loved if Sa'Kala actually generated turn meter for allies though. Oh newsletter. How you've wronged me...
  • An 11 turn cooldown for crappy abilities...

    Surely this is a month long April Fool's joke by the devs, because this guy looks and will play like a hot pile of dog doodoo.

    His unique reduces cooldowns. Y'all apparently aren't reading.

    I noticed that error too, maybe it is referencing a future character synergy or something

    Don't be a ****(4), and follow forum guidelines.

    Even so, he's trash lol
    His buffs and debuffs are the most basic things you'd swear this was a template for the first few characters planned in SWGoH.

    Nothing about him is unique or needed. No counters to anything, he is as generic as white bread.

    Which is fitting.... because hes literally a generic Rebel
  • Well he also personally gains turn meter per ally basic attack, which is pretty sweet. He could take a LOT of turns with multi attackers and toons like Hoth scout on his team. That's why it's such a shame his special abilities are so underwhelming despite the unique way in which their cooldowns are reduced. SMH

    Golly, I wish there was a character that caused Rebels to use basic attacks...

    Ackbar lead, Leia, Ezra, and Sabine might work with Pao as a fun team, I would try it if the level 8 unique was an omega ability

    First ability with huge cooldown: insta kill any toon

    Second ability with huge cooldown: gain 40% turn meter

    Third ability with huge cooldown: 70% chance to inflict defense down on enemies

    Power creep at its best

    These ones don't START on cooldown though.

    It only reduces his. With 11 CD on both moves it's 3 rounds of turns (without assists and/or counters).

    In 3 turns nihilus can anihilate....

    I know pao is just a generic toon but unless his abilities are stronger than they appear, it seems like there are many toons that would take his place in a rebel team.

    Ouch the irony
