Nightsister Spirit

Veiled Nightsister Attacker who Dispels, Stuns, and gains Foresight.

Basic: Spectral Embrace

Deal Physical damage to target enemy, inflict Speed Down for 2 turns and remove 20% Turn Meter. Gain Turn Meter equal to the amount removed.

Special 1: Possess

Deal Physical damage to target enemy, dipsel all buffs on them, and inflict Stun for 1 turn.

Unique: Malevolent Spirit
Nightsister Spirit gains Foresight for 1 turn at the start of each encounter. At the end of her turn, Nightsister Spirit gains Foresight for 1 turn. While Nightsister Spirit has Foresight, she has +100% Offense and her attacks ignore Armor.

In PvE...
Nightsister Spirit is an auto-include for any Nightsister Raid squad. She provides a large chunk of damage, and is essential in delaying the bosses during certain phases of the Raid. She is usually able to avoid being damaged thanks to Foresight from “Malevolent Spirit,” and her Turn Meter steal allows her to take more turns than most other units. She is great under a Talzin lead, where she can continuously remove Turn Meter and deal significant damage via both her basic and special attacks. Spirit is also valuable under an Asajj lead during Phase 3, where the utility of her basic attack compliments the Turn Meter removal from Asajj's leader ability.

In PvP...
Nightsister Spirit is the second highest single-target damage dealer in the Nightsister faction. She is akin to TIE Fighter Pilot, but offers more survivability thanks to the Nightsisters’ revive mechanics. The Stun from “Possess” contributes to the Nightsisters’ ability to establish control over a battle, and the Turn Meter steal from “Spectral Embrace” helps her go almost as fast as TIE Fighter Pilot. She is an important member of a competitive Nightsister squad.

  • Is the turn meter removal still resistable via tenacity?

  • Finally! a dark side meta team!
  • Finally! a dark side meta team!

    Composed of a team that 1% of star wars fans have ever heard of. This sucks. We want real star wars characters. You know how during their early preview, the Disney team sent Rogue 1 back to the director because it didn't feel like a star wars movie?

    This is that. Please get rid of these non star wars characters and give us a star wars game.

    Just wait until you can make an entire Coruscant Police squad. That might actually make more sense in Star Wars than whatever this Ghostbusters crossover thing is...

    These characters are from Star Wars canon. If you're not familiar with that part of the story, you should take some time to look into it. It's actually really good. The Nightsister are intriguing because they represent an idea, that there are things that exist in the Galaxy that aren't fully understood by the Jedi and the Sith. That in the remote corners of the Galaxy there are powers that can imitate, or even rival the force. The Nightsisters wielded such powers. Some of those powers included the ability to reanimate the corpses of fallen sisters, or to preserve the spirit of a fallen sister in such a state that it could continue to communicate and interact with the physical world.

    It seems a little odd to me that someone could claim that this is outlandish and absurd, while fully accepting force power like those wielded by Darth Plagues (who could prevent death altogether), or the Jedi (who could persist beyond death as a ghost or spirit) as totally normal.
    Wouldn't you agree?

    After all, it's a large Galaxy. Anything could exist out there.

    @Spyda I don't know what the Nightsisters are, and I don't care honestly. But I also don't fault the devs for putting them in the game, because apparently they are a big part of Star Wars.

    But I think there's a very underwhelming feeling when "generic" characters like "Zombie" and "Spirit" are added instead of actual, named characters like Luce (whoever that is). And maybe Luce is coming, I don't know.
  • Who you gonna call ghostbusters. I vote for ghostbusters to be added into the game next.

    Nightsisters (and nightbrothers) are actually a really big part of star wars canon. For example: Maul and Savage were from the nightbrother clan and Assajj was a nightsister.

    My understanding was that nightsisters use the Dark Side of the force for their "Magic" power. It is a different way to use the Dark Side that manifests itself in another way. Am I wrong on this?


  • I don't care about "canon", but I would rather have some random nightsister with a name than some **** spirits and zombies. Those are not characters. Those could be part a a special attack animation or something AT MOST!
    I really hope they are halloween only and get replaced in November. They might work as a joke in a fun event, BUT NOT MORE!
    Banthas want to eat me, but I eat back!
  • I am also amazed that peolple obey some multi-million-dollar-entertainment machines marketing directors in what's "canon" and what's not.

    Is this not the definition of "canon?" That which is accepted as what holds true to the story of star wars?

    And canon is dictated by disney? Who has the right to say "this is true/this is wrong"? If I look at the original star wars movie, zombies are somehow...off.

    Looking forward to Spangler myself
