New Characters
  • A new character has been added to the Shard Shop. This is the only place that this *cough* character can be obtained.
  • The daily login character for March will be an all new unit that recovers quickly from debuffs and deals potent AoE damage.

General Updates
  • Another character will be moved from Chromium Packs to Cantina Battles 1-E and 5-F.
  • Changed description on Barriss Offee’s Force Healer ability to say that the health equalization portion of the ability will still affect characters who have heal block on them.
  • Added player XP awards to the Credit and Training Droid Events.
