Luke Skywalker (Farmboy)

Luke Skywalker has been reworked to improve his offensive versatility, including a fully reworked "Draw A Bead" ability boosting critical chance and critical damage.

BASIC: Frontier Marksmanship
  • Upgrade 7 now grants "+10% Damage" instead of "+5% Damage"
  • Omega upgrade now grants "+15% Damage" in addition to previous bonus of "+10% Turn Meter Gain"

SPECIAL: Bullseye
  • Omega upgrade now reads: "Cooldown - 1, add Speed Down for 2 turns, and if this attack doesn't score a Critical Hit dispel all buffs on the target"

LEADER: A New Hope
  • New ZETA upgrade: "+5% Tenacity and whenever an ally Resists a detrimental effect they gain Advantage for 2 turns"

Unique: Draw a Bead (REWORKED)
  • Ability reworked: "Luke has +10-25% (based on upgrade level) Critical Chance."
  • New ZETA upgrade: "At the start of each of his turns, Luke gains 10% Critical Damage (stacking) until the end of the encounter"

  • Nice. Doubt I'll use him once I get Commander, but these upgrades should prove useful in the event to unlock commander.

    Quick question @CG_Kozispoon

    Are you breaking down ALL the reworks today like this? Like for Old Ben, Leia, StHan and even Raid Han?

    Because that would be stellar.

    @CG_Kozispoon So this unique zeta of gaining 10% CD stacking at the beginning of each of his turns...does it stack infinitely? As in, in P4 AAT, after 4-5 topples he'll be critting for 200k?

    I'd like to know this too

    They said as a bonus they are going to rework his kit.

    To me it just needs "ignore taunt" like Boba and it'll be viable again, but I'm heavily interested in that rework since I got him 7 starts a couple of months ago and haven't used him.

    Zeta leader seems a waste
  • Zeta leader seems a waste

    Seems like a waste right now. We have no idea what the other reworks are going to be. This might benefit those.

  • That unique zeta though. Very nice

    Yeah, screams "put me in the tank raid."

    Advantage is nice but definitely not going to be better than other leads
  • does the rework thing mean a new character like Ahsoka or modifying the current one

    I can see this, but worthy of a zeta? Those things are just too rare for me to use it like that.
  • I'm always happy about improving useless characters, especially when they know we are going to farm him now anyways, but overall I can't say I see a use for Luke yet. I wouldn't farm him based on this rework. I'll be gearing him to the minimum for the event.

    Would be pretty decent hard hitter now and the leadership skill seems to be pretty interesting (though I wish it also had a little bit of TMGain i.e. 5%) but the thing is, it breaks the current synergies with Leia and all, hopefully, they'll get that working as well, as i'd love to see them both complimenting each other really well. He's now more of an all-in-one package and I would expect to see him become very useful in Raids moving forward.

    5% tenacity is still awful especially for a zeta. It should be 50%
  • Missed opportunity for that leader. Zetas being rare as they are for some, the unique could have added 25% and been fine. It is not as if current rebel comps can't solo (or darn close) P4 tank anyway. All moot because of the new Luke, though.

    Btw, we want to see Old Ben's rework the most!!

    Meh, I wanna see his second most.

    I'm more interested in Raid Han's tweak. Hopefully they make him worthy of Han Solo.

    Not today, but yes! The reworks for the New Hope crew should be coming out in the following days

    Excellent. Pretty hyped for Raid Han's tweak.

    Good ol' Farmboy could turn into quite the raid unit with that stacking passive!
  • @CG_Kozispoon - Dr. horrible for the win!!!

    Plus we are all extremely appreciative of the sneak peeks, thank you!

    Starting the encounter with Bounty Hunter's resolve is all he needs.

    But I guess we all thought Taunt is all Old Ben needed, but he needs his to be something crazy like K2's. Hence my keen interest.

    I'd rather see something like a passive taunt. Like all light side units gain 10% TM when any other ally takes damage. So you are penalized if you ignore him.
  • Thanks for the post @CG_Kozispoon as Luke is my favorite character. I'm extremely disappointed in his Zeta lead though. +5% tenacity and advantage for 2 turns for a Zeta? Kind of weak. GREAT job on his Zeta unique though. I also like how if he doesn't crit on bullseye he dispells buffs.

    Nah, you want him dead to pass out buffs and such. Your idea is too easily countered with Daze or Rex.
  • What about good-ol'-Chewie? Is our not-so-little furry friend going to get a rework as well? Like synergies with Han (both raid and Trooper) and/or other rebels?

    The best way, in my opinion for Old Ben is for his unique to become a special... Using "If you strike me down" strips all protection and health down to 1, then activates taunt, and remove all dodge/evasion/resist chance from Ben. That way in can be used strategically in battle when you want to bring the pain.
