    Pretty cool. For as much as there are complaints about DS getting shafted, DS capitals at least have the best ultimate abilities.

    There's a DS TB map coming soon too. DS was only temporarily shafted.

    Also let's not forget we've just come out of quite a few DS metas (Palp, Zader, Zaul, DN), there was he Sith rework, DN and Thrawn releases (though to be fair they didn't necessarily make DS stronger) and the Sith rework which had a huge impact.

    It shifts back and forth.

    Jedi on the other hand, they're consistently shafted. I don't remember a time in the game where the Jedi got the spotlight they truly deserve :)
  • We definitely need more Empire toons though. Only 15 Imperial toons and almost 40 Rebels. The current TB Imperials for instance would be great additions.

    I think the Kanaan and Ezra zetas may help bring Jedi up to a more usable and powerful group again. Will have to wait and see about that though
  • If you guys just assume Rebels, you will be correct. It's like a given nowadays. Do NOT panic farm, Chimera is not the Meta all the whales addicted to this game assume it is.

    Source of this statement? How do u know Chimaera is not better than other ships?

  • Ok so 4 empire ships.
    Plus fotp, boba.
    Who else would you all throw in. Sun fac was mentioned and so was 5s. I think 7* cap ship unlocks the other reinforcement. Biggs as usual? And what would a starting 5 look like?
  • For me, I would have Scimitar, Tie advanced, TFP'S ship, Biggs ship and Umbaran Starfighter

    Then for re-enforcement s, I would have FOTP Ship, then guantlet, Bobas ship and sunfacs ship (assuming the Chimera is at 7*)

    @CG_CapGaSP ;

    Can you explain how the stacking tenacity will work?

    Will it stack continuously for all ships, including reinforcements? (Ie, every ally ship gains the same tenacity)

    Or will it stack only on ACTIVE ships, and reinforcements will only receive the starting % and stack from there?

    Any comment on this would be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers

    Final Text: All allies recover 20% Health and gain a buff for 2 turns. (Attacker: Offense Up - Support: Foresight - Tank: Defense Up)
    Inflict a debuff on all enemies for 2 turns. These effects can't be Evaded or Resisted. (Attacker: Offense Down - Support: Ability Block - Tank: Defense Down)

    Final Text: Deal Special Damage to all enemies and remove 20% Turn Meter.

    Crew Ability (Ultimate) – Strategic Dominance
    2ciisevwae96.gif

    Final Text: Instantly defeat target enemy and deal damage to all remaining enemies equal to 40% of their Max Health. Dispel all debuffs on target ally and grant them 100% Health, 100% Protection, 75% Turn Meter, and heal all other allies equal to 40% of their Max Health. Increase all cooldowns on the enemy Capital Ship by 1. This ability starts on cooldown.

    Unique Ability (Passive) – Fierce Loyalty
    Final Text: All allies have +25% Critical Damage (doubled on Empire allies) and +15% Critical Chance. When an enemy is defeated, all allies gain 5% Tenacity (stacking) until the end of battle. Reinforcement Bonus: Critical Chance Up for 2 turns

    GENERAL STRATEGY
    • Calculated Strike can be used to apply effects from your other ships’ basic abilities, giving you great flexibility with the utility provided by your capital ship.
    • Art of War has a powerful impact on the battle. It bolsters your ships while reducing the effectiveness of the enemy’s ships, bringing strong utility to any phase of your fleet battles.
    • Strategic Dominance can help you bypass Endurance’s damage immunity on a taunt or deal with that pesky TIE Fighter. It is also the first ability to lock down the enemy capital ship’s abilities, preventing them from reinforcing, using their ultimate, or taking any significant action for an additional turn.

    SHIP SYNERGIES
    • With strong Critical Damage and Critical Chance boosts that are always active, Chimaera is all about boosting allies to deal incredible damage consistently. Bringing Empire ships for the bonus 25% Critical Damage will maximize your fleet’s potential.
    • Ships that have strong utility on their basic attacks go great with Chimaera. Sun Fac’s Geonosian Starfighter can target lock, Umbaran Starfighter can dispel, First Order TIE Fighter can grant itself two Turn Meter boosts, and Slave I can focus on dealing a lot of damage. Being able to use the bonus effects on your ships’ basic abilities more frequently can turn the tide of battle if you bring a diverse toolbox.

  • Does Phylon tractor beam affect other capital ships for TM?

    Wow a major necro but no, it does not.
    Where is my kitten General Grievous rework at!!??
  • Since we're necroing, why is a legendary capital ship worse than the ships you get for free? Not talking about Windu coz his ship is in its own garbage league.

    If you are losing with chimeara, it is probably an error of your fleet combo, not the cap ship.

    Go attack a fully maxed Executrix with a g12 Tarkin with your fully maxed Chim with a g12 Thrawn. Report back.

    Same.

  • I can win barely on offense (thrawn is G12.2 with both zetas) and get destroyed on defense. Enemy TF is G8 and hits harder then my G12.3 TFP. Aside from that Exec is much faster and gives 20% TM every time a ship dies. It is huge.

    Does that 20% TM apply to the executrix itself? About to upgrade it myself
