[Developer Insight - Kit Update]

Hi Holotable Heroes,

As a belated Father’s Day present we are releasing an update to Darth Vader’s Kit! It has been quite a while since we have updated this kit and while he has been a powerhouse in the past, it’s a good time to bring him up to snuff with a new ability, Merciless Massacre.

The Basics:
  • Darth Vader has a new ability added to his kit, Merciless Massacre, which allows him to take an extra turn whenever he attacks an enemy with Merciless Target
  • In combination with his updated Unique that now dispels Stealth, Merciless gives Vader the ability temporarily to ignore Taunt and attack the entire team almost every time you use Merciless Massacre

Inspiration:
  • Why yes, it IS an attempt in our game to replicate the Rogue One hallway moment

Strategy Tips:
  • You have full access to all of Vader's abilities during Merciless, but still need to respect their cooldowns
  • Darth Vader is taking extra turns with this ability, so cooldowns are being reduced and you'll be able to cycle back around to abilities if you play your cards right - Think about who you want to be your target as you use each ability
  • This ability becomes less effective the fewer enemies you are facing, so it is best to use it as your opening, or second move
  • Vader can still be counterattacked so pay close attention to units that have this ability
