UNIT NAME: Zaalbar ALIGNMENT: Light CATEGORIES: Tank, Scoundrel, Old Republic Versatile Scoundrel Tank with a powerful AoE and reactive Taunt
Basic: STALWART ALLY
FINAL TEXT: Deal Physical damage and inflict 2 Damage Over Time effects on target enemy for 2 turns. Zaalbar recovers 10% Health.
Special 1: POWER BLAST (Cooldown 3)
FINAL TEXT: Deal Physical damage to all enemies and gain Taunt for 3 turns. On a Critical Hit, inflict Armor Shred on target enemy for rest of the battle.
Unique 1: WOOKIE TOUGHNESS
FINAL TEXT: Zaalbar gains 20% Defense (stacking) each time he is attacked for 1 turn.
Unique 2: MISSION'S GUARDIAN
FINAL TEXT: (ZETA) Zaalbar has +25% Critical Avoidance. If Mission is present, she also gains this bonus. When any other ally falls below 100% Health, Zaalbar gains Taunt and Retribution for 2 turns. At the start of each of his turns, Zaalbar and Mission recovers 10% Protection for each Damage Over Time effect on enemies.
Also what is his specific synergy with GK?
Or 3 wookies and wampa.
Or Garmorrean guard, he's a scoundrel and deals lots of dots
The retribution buff
That is because they are all waiting for Revan to lead them.
‘Recover’ being the word rather than ‘Gain’
It won't be possible. It's obviously cap to 100% since you can recover protection over the maximum, otherwise it would have stated "if any protection is recovered over 100%, the protection become a protection UP bonus.
That was what I noticed right away too. Could open up some very nice possibilities for p2 HSTR down the road.
I would assume whatever takes defense down to 0? So on raid Sion 8, since he gains 100% defense and each on reduces defense by 25%. I can’t confirm, but these things always seem to be additive.
Theyre never additive.. Armor shred always reduces the defense by a percent of the current value. So youll never get to zero. Also, the effect already diminishes by one shredder towards the end of the raid encounter, so 2 seems like a waste to me.
But having two for two seperate teams could be huge. I use Sabine with my GMY, Hyoda, GK, Ezra team and can do 4%, even with Sabine at g10.
To be able to also have an armor shredder on my AA, Leia team would be huge, as that team can only barely hit 2% without Sabine.
After thinking about it he is plug and play and may be one of the best tanks in the game. Even without Vao.
EDIT: With Stacking Defense and Self Healing and a 49% Crit reduction with an Arrow, he is going to be extremely durable. It greatly increases the value of his self healing. Who knows how good he will be but on paper he is really promising.
Release really good looking toon,
wait for spending on that toon to slow down, nerf toon,,
give them chewie shards..
Well **** your chewie shards I'm not buying **** all from this game again.
Going bigZ without mission vao...
Ran into a g10-g11 Phoenix team with a g10 Ezra with 36% CD triangle. He was critting Z for 6k with Flourish which is insanely low for a 3* g7 target. I put it on Auto for 15 mins and had to retreat because no one on either side would die.
May even be able to drop CWC and Add Old Lando Lead and drop L3 and add Raid Han, Vet Han or Nest or Vao for more offense.
Obviously Nihilus is the solution to beat a team like this but if somone is wasting a EP team with Nihilus on this scrub team they have served their purpose.
No Final conclusions yet But with Vandor I think he will be a top-tier tank and should be pretty good with almost anyone else. When he has retribution he spreads dots to heal his protection and basic attacks to heal his health, so he self-supports and doesnt have to be with anyone else that spreads dots. This screen is of them before last node. Z took the final hit on the previous battle and only has about 4k protection at g7, but he stays topped off under this team even without his basic Omega.
I saw CapGasp's explanation for why HK doesn't have it which was posted before Zaalbar and Mission's characters were released and I don't think anyone looks at Zaalbar, Mission or T3 and says "They are Old Republic" in-universe. They are as much Old Republic as HK-47 is.
They are basically trying to say they are the “good guy
Start with a Embo lead with Boba fett, Dengar, and Zaalbar. For the fifth place there are a few possibilities, I think the best would be Qi'ra.
Embo's lead will allow the three bounty hunters to fall below 100% health multiple times, triggering zaalbars taunt and retribution. Big Z, Boba, and Dengar can cover the opposing team in DOT constantly refilling Big Z's protection as he regenerates his own health. Qi'ra will dispel enemy buffs allowing Embo to trigger his payout quickly. She also can trigger multiple assists with her special with dengar, plus adding 10% damage to their attack. All together this could create a devastating team. Some other possible characters to plug in would be Nest or V Chewie.
