Question about HAAT solo

There is a vid of a guy supposedly soloing HAAT with Qira(l) cls, bb8, thrawn and young solo.

My question is why is the guy using cls?
I understand why under Ackbar lead for all the assists and turn meter gain from ibat but with qira lead wouldnt raid han be better.

I'm mainly thinking that wouldnt young solos 70% chance to assist raid han be alot more useful. Especially when damage numbers start getting to 100k+ per hit.

Am I missing something? Will it be better?

    Yes but raid han has turn meter reduction too. Also this team isnt that heavy on debuffs
  • The tenacity down also helps land the tmr. Han is also squishy and can be a liability.
  • Han's TMR is entirely dependent on the enemy's TM at the time. Way more of a liability than CLS being able to do it every time.

    That is a good point on being squishy but there is alot of protection gain in the squad, health cant be helped.

    Next time I can run HAAT i will try them all.
    Ive just tried AA, bb8, cls, thrawn, yolo.
    Did about 70% p1 and 45% p2.
    Main weakness is my AA is only gear 10 and died early in p1. Probably need to work on how to play it properly too.

    A big problem is lack of attacks with yolo because half the time you are using his protection up ability. So I thought qira and raid han will solve that plus my qira is alot tougher than AA

    How useful is tmr anyway? Grievious seems to attack anyway even with 0 tm. The other droids I can 1 shot once a few turns have passed and p2 you cant remove turn meter from the tank anyway

    I don't have Yolo at 7* but when I run AA CLS Thrawn Asajj BB8 in P3/P4, TMR is critical in P3.

    Read up on P1, GG gets 100% TM every 7th hit (I think). Other than that TMR is important there too.

  • Your 7th hit more or less HAS to be CLS to guarantee Grievous doesn't gain Tactical Advantage and take several turns in a row. CLS also inflicts buff immunity so in the off chance Grievous does get his 7th hit turn, he won't get the green triangle of death.

    Thanks. Like I said I need to learn how to play it properly :(

    I'll just try qi'ra with cls see if I can do better than AA lead. Sadly cant trade thrawn for hoda as he is still 5*

    It can be Han, but not his special.

    Doesnt he take the turn anyway. Ive seen him be at 0 tm yet take a turn regardless.

    Also qira can also dispell buffs
  • Also how does enrage work. On this run p2 tank was toppled with 2 turns on enrage timer yet when the tank came up he enraged straight away. I was going to try escape bb8 and thrawn to finish p2 with fo

    In P2 the tank takes two turns off the enrage counter after each topple. So if it's at 3, it will be at 1 when you get your next move. If at 2, it will get to enrage.

    Note in P4 it only takes one off after each topple.

    Getting up from topple is a turn and then it takes an immediate 2nd turn. It's not very intuitive but hey.

    Thanks that explains it. So should I try to topple the tank just before it gains 100% turn meter

    Especially since it's not that way in P4.

  • Yes. Always topple the tank right before it takes a turn. You're getting extra hits in every time before it actually goes down. Same applies to P4. With Asajj don't AoE the turrets until the tank is over 50-75% TM. Those extra couple hits before each topple can make the difference by the end of the phase especially if you find it's getting enraged right before taking it out.

    Raid han probably doesn't have reliable enough tmr for phase 1 and 3.

  • And in that squad with Raid Han instead of CLS nobody applies Tenacity Down...
  • He he this is an old thread
  • Yup. But similar questions keep coming up.
  • Ive given up on soloing haat. At least until I finish hoda then I might try again.
  • Wampanader is my goal. 45/85 on him so far.
