What would n Emperor Palpatine toon powers and affinities be?

I mean the black-robed emperor from Ep. IV-VI, not that jumping jack Darth Sidious we have now.

I would have it not use a lightsaber at all, like in the movies.

Affinities: Empire, Sith, Support

Force Lightning (Basic Attack): Not a clone of Dooku's lightning though, but still having a chance to stun.

Dark Side Harrowing(Special): AoE causing positive buffs to become negative, OR buff immunity if no buffs present. Leader skills have their effect reversed into a negative one.

Imperial March (Leader, Passive): small chance at removing a small amount of turn meter on a successful attack of any ally.

Bodyguards (unique, passive): A soft-stealth where it can't be directly targeted if there are other allies alive, except if it's stunned or exposed.


If you think those powers don't fit the character, please comment!

    I'm really not a fan of releasing different versions of the same character while we are still waiting for so many other iconic ones. However, for the sake of the discussion...

    Force lightning, instead of stunning could drop turn meter back to 0.

    Dark side Harrowing = too complicated to apply. What is the negative of taunt? Attack immunities?

    Imperial March... if it is a march, let'S be literal here. Everytime an Empire ally attacks, the turn meter of another random Empire ally is raised by 30%

    Bodyguards... I would go with something like, when targeted by an attack, x% chance that another random ally gets targeted instead.

    You face the emperor in some battle(s) he has singular force lightning attack (might be his basic) and then seems to have some AoE debuff powers. The empire will be a very AoE type team as him, Vader, tarkin and veers all have aoe

    And he has no lightsaber

    His abilities were datamined like Yoda's were. While they obviously could change, the fact that yoda was released exactly as expected indicates that we will probably get what's in the mined data.

    He's already in the game as a PvE boss.
    His basic is force lightning which has a chance to stun and his special is offense up buff to all allies.

    He's Sith and Empire, just like Vader, not a big fan of this.

    Run him with Sid, Vader and Dooku and its game over for everyone

    I bet the shard shop exclusive is either Jedi Luke or scoundrel Han or it will be the way to fully unlock Vader

    Emperor might be the next BIG reward for an event for Sith and empire heroes, but that won't be the next event.

    Would make sense release Palp and Yoda together. Empire characters are harder to get, Veers is by Nodes Tarkin the (speed leader) is chromium only. Storm trooper is in Cantina, Royal Guard is Nodes, and Vader is Achievements. IF any Character should be exclusive, it should be Palp, no real way for FTP to make an empire team anyway. If they made Grievs Shard shop exclusive too many people would rage.

    Forgot to add SnowTrooper who has 1 node.

    My guess its Rex or someone like that.

    While the emperor is in both empire and sith, if the above is correct his skill synergies are for a sith team not an empire team, which is a shame

    What is the Empire synergy?? AOES. My long winded point is what is the FTP empire team? It doesnt exist and should add him exclusive since FTP really wont be missing out on anything.

    He should have a turn to the dark side attack, something like the character starts attacking his own team

    I don't disagree with you, but his one skill if for Sith characters so I am assuming he will run with a Sith team, which needs help and does have some farmable characters

    Those arent necessarily his abilities. I do see your point though.
