FAQ: Latest Updates in Red

Why doesn't Buff Immunity or Healing Immunity prevent Nest's ability to regain protection?
  • Nest gains bonus Max Protection which cannot be prevented. This bonus Protection is not a buff (positive status effect) and therefore not prevented by Buff Immunity.
    Healing Immunity also doesn't prevent Nest gaining Protection due to her unique ability "adding" new Protection and not "healing" existing missing protection. This is also therefore not considered healing a character.

How can she take on 5 characters by herself and not die?
  • Nest’s unique kit requires you to not just attack her repeatedly but be mindful of when you decide to take her out. You need to do a couple high damage attacks and then leave her alone until she attacks and sets all her protection back to zero.
    The AI on defense is not great at understanding how to stop her from gaining tons of protection but a smart player will be able to counter her abilities and remember that she gains increasing amounts of protection each time you hit her until the end of her turn.

How Nest is even beatable?!?!? She's super OP!!!
  • If you aren't trying to focus on attacking her you can keeping her from taking a turn with stuns or stop her counter attacking with daze abilities. If you are trying to finish her off, Fracture or Turn Meter removal can be detrimental in this pursuit! This will give her more chances to get those unique stacks of protection and become very hard to defeat until she takes a turn.
    In short, you don't want to hit her with a large number of attacks before she has a chance to attack back. High damage, single shot attacks are her worst nightmare.
    Nest’s unique mechanics mean that many standard strategies won’t work when she’s on the team so we expect there be a bit of learning curve before folks start really figuring out how to defeat her efficiently.

Are you going to nerf her kit already?!?!?!
  • We have no plans to modify her balance at this time. We expect her to be a great character to slot into a wide variety of teams and that she will be a strong answer to teams that prevent characters from taking turns. As with all characters, we will be monitoring Nest’s balance and re-evaluate if her performance is out of line.

    Man I'm so obsessed with this game...I was seeing the movie the other day and when the scene came my first thought was "OK, this one is going to have an AoE in Galaxy of heroes" :D Looks like a promising kit though....let see how it plays in reality bu still looks more PvE oriented and not so much PVP....
  • Yet another unavoidable-attacking, stupidly overpowered LS character. It would be great if CG would get off the LS nuts long enough to give the dark characters with as much utility.
  • So... you acknowledged a while ago you were woefully stacked characterwise in LS favor. You introduced three new LS already. Will there be some new DS from this? Mud troopers etc?
  • Interesting that this character doesn’t have the prepared feature. Very very interesting.

    Simmer down. The current dominant meta team is dark side, which just got a bunch of stuff, and the bounty hunters just got a bunch of PvE toys. Now, light side is getting some stuff. And Solo releases are still ongoing.

    Surprised this one doesn't interact with the Prepared mechanic.

    That AoE daze could be very useful for sending Scoundrels against Palpatine.
    Still not a he.

    I think we will get Lando and that Alien Pilot which was voiced by Jon Favreau and Woody Harrelson’s character then Dryden Voss, Mudtrooper and Rangetrooper, with a Maul rework.

    Bite your tongue with who mention. Hasn't even been a week yet!
  • SPOILER WARNING ^

    You do realise that this year alone Sith got so much catering to it became THE meta right? Dark Side got a lot, were you sleeping under a rock?

    Another Thing Is It Seems Like It Could Be Part Of An AoE team to fight JTR
  • "Whenever Nest is damaged by an attack, the character gains +30% Critical Chance and 40% Bonus Protection (stacking)."

    So if your attack doesn't do greater than 40% of the protection in 1 hit, then you will lose because after that the protection pool just keeps getting larger?

    Or you heal block, or plague, or annihilate...
    Still not a he.
  • Can you clarify the stacking bonus protection mechanic? Does this mean this second time she is damaged she gets an additional 80% for a total of 120%? Or 80% total?

    80% total
  • Uh ... 40% bonus protection on damage? Good gravy.

    If it was easy to farm this character withought paying then the arena would be full with Enfys Nest

    I can see I'm going to hate this character on a Chaze initial release level.

    No idea who or what she is, but the kit looks fun.

    Does Enfys have the highest base speed in the game? Gear 1 lvl 1 is 110 speed
  • Ignores Taunt. Oh, well that's nice.
  • The speed comes from her lovely shoes, comfy and sporty, but yet elegant...

    Yeah, didnt notice in the movie she was wearing Vans.

    That said, liked in the movie, kit looks cool. Guess we are missing Beckett (who was awesome) and Lando and the Vision guy?

    Is it fair that Woody Harrelson just plays himself in every movie and I still like all of his characters? Because I do.
