Unique: QUIET CONFIDENCE
  • (Includes ZETA Upgrades): When another Resistance ally loses Foresight, Amilyn Holdo gains Taunt for 1 turn and Recovers 10% Health. While Amilyn Holdo doesn't have Taunt, she has +50 speed and all other Resistance allies have +20% Critical Avoidance.
  • [ZETA]: When another Resistance ally loses Foresight, Amilyn Holdo gains Taunt for 1 turn and Recovers 10% Health. While Amilyn Holdo doesn't have Taunt, all other Resistance allies have +20% Critical Avoidance.

General Strategy, Synergy and Utilization

“Come on, girl! Yeah, you got to get back up! You got to Holdo...Yeah, you got to Holdo.”

In PvE...

When it comes to PvE, Holdo shines in Territory Battles and Territory Wars. Her basic “Measured Shot” helps protect the team by providing allies Foresight and health recovery. It also interacts well with her unique “Quiet Confidence” ability to sustain her Taunt. Under Rey (Jedi Training), “Bunker Buster” inflicts AOE damage and Daze, which helps you lock down the enemy team. “Reprieve” serves as a great Dispel and heal on a relatively low cooldown, which is clutch as Resistance lack healers. “Quiet Confidence” allows Holdo to stay healthy and allows her to stay relevant when not taunting.

In PvP...

Holdo is a premiere tank for the Resistance. In a full Resistance squad, Amilyn Holdo taunts frequently, disrupting any attempts to target someone other than herself. A particularly effective strategy is to pair Holdo with allies who can grant Stealth, making it difficult to focus fire on her when she is not Taunting. The result makes Holdo a long-lasting, disruptive tank. Holdo and other Resistance units also make good use of Foresight to extend their survivability. On the offensive side, Holdo’s “Bunker Buster” special dazes all enemies, drastically slowing them down if they rely on turn meter gain mechanics.

  • Not to sound ungrateful but what about a galactic war for ships just an idea use it don't use it will make the game more fun
  • Guessing she's really gonna help JTR to be more dominant. Fast and mass daze
  • Seems really bizarre that “Admiral” Holdo - especially given her role in the film - has no leader ability... what?!? Was that an oversight?

    Isnt it more bizarre an admiral isn't a fleet commander?? Guess that could be in the future.
  • @CG_Kozispoon a++ on those lyrics :)
  • What about the cooldowns of Holdo's specials?
    Looks very nice, so far.
  • From the "In PVE" it says... "“Bunker Buster” inflicts AOE Exposes and Daze, which helps you lock down the enemy team." but in the ability description it doesn't say expose....

    I’m confused in the wording of her unique? Does the zeta remove her +50 speed or did @CG_Kozispoon swap the order? :)

    The [zeta] just shows you what part is added via the zeta. The speed boost does not require the zeta.

    The exposes are from JTR lead

    Under JTR lead, any crits from her AOE have a 70% chance to Expose.
  • So, no Resistance Capital ship?

    Seriously, you want more capital ships. There aren't enough fighters to fill teams for the capital ships we already have

    @TVF yes but the only difference between stated base ability and the (zeta) description is the loss of the +50 speed. Or does she actually need the zeta to taunt at all and the +50 is her base unique only

    JTR’s leader creates the exposes.

    From how I read it the base is +50 speed (actually it's +? speed and increases to +50 at the last level before zeta) and everything else is granted with the zeta.

  • JTR, BB8, Holdo, R2 and whoever gonna stomp now. Holdo and R2's aoe is a needed element - seeing as one of them prevents counters with Daze it's gonna be it for CLS leads (I mean, it was already, but it's certain now)

    If you have r2 who can expose the entire team(under JTR) and then you aoe with Holdo, wont all her abilities be reset ? And vica versa

    Great, can we get a counter to the Jedi Training Rey meta now? 43% is unhealthy, and I'm betting that that is the % of people in the top 100 of their shard that unlocked her.

    nice. very nice. some weird admiral from the resistance is more powerful and useful than KRU or Kylo ren, the amazing villian of the movie.
    wth wrong with you CG. stop with the resistance/rebel/LS being so strong compared to DS. jeez.
    i hope no one will farm her or rose, and you'll lose any money you hoped to get from those hates characters.
  • Could I get clarification for the skill cooldowns?
