Captain Phasma: Is She Worth It?

Prev1
I've leveled her up to IV and have played around with her on my team, replacing my IG-86, but I don't seem to be having as much luck with her. Maybe I'm just confused on her role. Kind of wondering where she fits.

    I got her with the upgrade but have yet to use her. Considering she is a first order character i would assume her roll is best fit if you have other first order characters in your squad.
    Look, good against pvp is one thing, good against the living, that’s something else.

    Her leader ability could be nuts when you consider all the First Order chars get bonus on their standard attacks with advantage (which she also buffs).

    Also if it can chain (doubt it).

    by the way, I just used someone else's phasma as an assist and skills used by other characters trigger the assist. THIS INCLUDES HEALS. I also triggered it off of IG-86's second skill and got a triple attack. It's pretty cool.

    Looks to have potential. Mine is 3* gear 4 level 60. Power is currently 2050.

    That's gonna be my new darkside team for sure, already got the First order stormtrooper and Phasma, tomorrow I can collect the First order Tie Pilot from the Daily Login rewards, and start building up their stats. This is going to take some time without spending any money as they keep giving us new characters and not enough resources to ever level them all in a reasonable amount of time. Got a 3 star chewie sitting on 30/30 shards and not enough credits to promote him, lol. Its a grinder no doubt about that.

    I saved enough GW tokens to have her instantly 6*, I'll post more info on her max stats when I have her at 7* but she looks super promising as a leader!

    Yes, I'm working on a first order team. Not sure if stats are strong enough without a taunt ability. I don't think first order has a taunt tank.

    Out of the new characters released, Phasma looks to be the easiest to farm and that makes her highly attractive next to the others. I know most will be looking for Kylo however......

    I've seen the first trooper in pve have a taunt. probably need to go deeper on special skills maybe.

    Once phasma was available, I stopped farming Luminara

    Yep taking a break from Luminara farming for my new leader.

    If First Order Tie Pilot was reasonably farmable, her value really goes up. Even so, using her on my revamped PvP squad. Currently 4* and gear 7. Her two 2 specials are helpful, though she doesn't hit hard herself. She does have decent health, so she survives the first round. That's important for my squad since I fire Fusillade (60% to inflict speed down - low AOE damage) on turn 1 and turn 2 give advantage and 35% turn meter (so far) to the squad. Between Sid and Vader, that's 2 enemies down and Luminara could take a third with her special.

    The thing that struck me, though, is that 3 of the 6 gear slots now can not be upgraded until they raise the level cap. You have to be 62, 64, and 65 to fill those slots.

    Im alittle annoyed as i tested out the the 60% speed down...in normal games and challenges etc works great. In pvp..in 3 matches not 1 toon slowed....laaaaaaaaame.

    What's her gear level? I think tier V or VI significantly upgrades her potency

    Gear is 1 short of 7 (epic)

    Tomorrow i will try to have her all purple gear and 4 star. I will let u guys know if she is still not working.
  • Options
    Sounds like bad luck then :(
    I've used her a few times in pvp and it seems like I usually got at least 2 slows off

    I'm seeing that a lot from many of my characters, though. There seems to be a lot more evading, dodging (love it when a stunned target evades or dodges), resisting than previous weeks. Want to see something funny - try to attack Sidious with Jedi.

    This is the trouble with "balance" patches. Fix one thing, break a few other things.

    How many toons affected when it worked..half?
  • Options
    Lol..try attacking Dooku with 1 Jedi 1v1.
    I was in pvp..had a 3700 power Lum with full health die against Dooku who had 30% health. 100% counters..bonus attack...and stuns. Quite ridiculous couldnt even move for 3 turns....lol.

    Is the First Order Officer worth farming then? I already have a Pilot at gear VI, Phasma at Gear V, and a Stormtrooper at gear 4. I'm filling with IG-86 and Sideous in the mean time. I'm farming for Phasmaa shards in GW atm.

    She is basically utility turn control. She does her job very well allowing some of your slower / softer / harder hitters a chance to react before they get burned.

    She works best if you combo other with similar turn reduction or increase abilities and anyone that get bonuses off advantage like the tie pilot who is also first order.

    A FO Advantage squad is looking very viable, although not being able to 7★ Tie Pilot puts it on the back burner for me, if not for that I would have done a tech switch to rush it out ASAP.

    I once borrowed someone's Captain Phasma for my dark side campaign, and she wasn't that great. But I think it might be since she was only 2 stars in lvl 40, and presumably either gear lvl II or III. Her power was only about 1027. (quite low) Maybe the higher star and gear Phasma would be greater, considering the comments I read on this forum.

    Really? I rarely have issues with credits (1.6 M). It's usually the crystals that bother me. (I'm a freemium player, BTW)

    Pretty sure that was a fake computer-generated Phasma and probably poorly geared. (Phasma unlocks at 3 stars.) A real one would probably be much better.
    For credits: do GW. Essential.
    Quit 7/14/16. Best of luck to all of you.

    I got her to level 54 gear level 6.

    Regret it now because I've dropped her fromy team as she's just underwhelming.

    Her specials take too long to recharge and her main attack is poor.

    I haven't used her much yet. I plan on building a first order team. I'm working on the officer and although it's only one star. My tie pilot is level 60. @60, Phasma is starting to show potential. I geared her up to 7 gear and 60 with 4*. Her power has increased to just under 3100. She's just behind my 4* Fett.

    My problem with phasma is she is always first or second on my team, so her +40% turn is always a waste

    I've not put her on my team but every time I have a chance to use someone else's for reforcment she us the one I select. It's mostly to try her out.

    I like what I'm seeing. One of my allies as her at 60 and in gear 7. And she seems pretty great. The bonus attacks I keep getting with her helps take down bosses fast.

    Best if all the extra attacks are not just from normal attacks. I laughed when boba did his aoe which then sid did an extra attack on lumi, just to watch lumi waste her heal right after as she was immune. I've also seen extra attacks happen with cad stun glove.

    I'm still only lvl 47 but having her as leader with IG-86 is great has a chance of 3 people attacking and with dooku and Leia the multi attacks are pretty good damage.
    The best that's happened was 86 calling dooku to attack which he did 4 times then leader skill had him attack another 3 times so 8 attacks in total.
