Hi Holotable Heroes!
Here is all the new content you’ll find after today’s update, 9/12/18.

NEW CHARACTERS
Master assassin, father of Boba Fett, and one of the galaxy’s best Bounty Hunters, Jango Fett has joined the Holotables! Jango is a strong leader for any Bounty Hunter squad with his powerful attacks and amazing buffs for your entire team. Complete Jango’s Contract to give all allied Bounty Hunters an incredible buff: BOUNTY HUNTER'S RESOLVE will revive your Bounty Hunters when they are defeated and allow them to ignore Taunt.

Cad Bane received a rework recently and now he’s getting his modified Rogue-class starfighter, Xanadu Blood! This stealthy support ship uses BREACH to weaken its foes while protecting its allies. Form the ultimate Bounty Hunter fleet with Xanadu Blood, Slave I and the Hound’s Tooth.

There was another Bounty Hunter still looking for a Contract out in the galaxy, and she’s found it. The shapeshifter Zam Wesell has a few new tricks up her sleeve and maybe even a Thermal Detonator or two. Zam’s explosive new reworked kit means she loves to team up with anyone that can lob more detonators in the enemy squad’s direction. In addition, all characters that use Thermal Detonators received an upgrade: All Thermal Detonators can no longer be dispelled!


For more info on these units, check out the kit reveals and strategy guides below:

EVENTS

Rogue Hunter
With this release we are introducing the powerful new ship Xanadu Blood (piloted by Cad Bane) into Galaxy of Heroes. You can get a feel for this sleek fighter in the Rogue Hunter Marquee event, and can see more details about it in its kit reveal post here.
  • Event begins: September 13th
  • Level requirements for event: 60+
  • Forced Ally: Xanadu Blood

The Template in the Tempest
Finally, Jango Fett arrives on the Holotables. This notorious Bounty Hunter can be acquired in The Template in the Tempest Marquee event. Owing to the mystique and fan fondness for this character, we've added some extra "oomph" into this event with bonus rewards and some additional tiers where you can take Jango (and other Bounty Hunters) on some missions. These bounty tiers are replayable each day for the duration of the event, and award mod salvage. For more details about Jango Fett check out his kit reveal here.
  • Event begins: September 20th
  • Level requirements for event: 20+
  • Forced Ally: Jango Fett

Smuggler's Run
Keep on Smugglin'
With this release we're adding a new Resource event (think Credit Heist & Droid Smuggling), called "Smuggler's Run". In this event you use Smuggler characters to try and sneak one over on the Empire and get your smuggled goods to their destination.
  • This event has 4 mission tiers and, similar to Credit Heist, the tiers unlock as your level up. Tier 1 unlocks at 50, Tier 2 unlocks at 70, and the final two tiers both unlock at level 80. This event requires Smuggler characters (see below) and awards Mods and Mod Salvage, including rare salvage pieces necessary to upgrade 5A Mods to 6E mods as rewards in Tier 4.
  • Like other resource events, Victory Counts are shared across all tiers, so do the highest tier you can.
  • Note that Tier 4 is quite difficult.
  • We have added the "Smuggler" profession tag to the following characters: Han Solo, Veteran Smuggler Han Solo, Veteran Smuggler Chewbacca, Young Han Solo, Young Lando, Qi'ra, L3-37, Vandor Chewbacca, & Enfys Nest
  • Event begins: September 18th
