    Kit is definitely unique and I definitely like the synergy with Vader. I already know where my next zetas are going. I have been waiting for this a long time.
  • This looks quite good. Excellent tm engine. Unfortunately...that means another speedset probably

  • Pair Piett's unique with Vader under a Palp lead. Absolute madness will ensue.

    This will make a fine addition to my collection
  • Cool kit, they could've released him a bit earlier since he's now a requirement for a galactic legend
  • I like how his zeta is him hitting a dab basically lol.
  • If his s2 kills someone, is it upgraded to 5 stacks of UF or is it 2+5? @CG_SBCrumb
  • Look forward to check him with vader. :)
  • Always liked Piett, he was my favorite Imperial Officer.

    Petition to change his basic's name! :D:D
  • Will Darth Vader gain one stack of Emperor's Trap every extra turn he takes while Merciless?
  • Has nobody else noticed the ridiculous synergy with veers’ leader omega?
  • Has nobody else noticed the ridiculous synergy with veers’ leader omega?

    Explain? .
    Veers omega gives empire allies 30% offence . Only imp troopers gain the TM on gaining buffs .
    you can drop an imp trooper for him but that's not worth it as imps have uses ,but this toon would be underutilized there I think

    I think it depends if Emperor’s Trap (or Inevitible Failure) count as Buffs. It doesn’t say, but if Trap does that’s a huge amount of TM gain available for Troopers.

    That’s what I was referring to. If you look at pietts character description up top it calls Emperor’s trap a buff. That’s basically 10+ turn meter for the whole imp troop team every time one takes a turn
  • Now, hear me out. Gar Saxon lead, Imperial Super Commando, Stormtrooper, Piett, and whoever you want as the fifth empire character (I was thinking Shoretrooper, if you add shoretrooper you can mark him instead of stormtrooper if you want, Magmatrooper, Rangetrooper, or Vader). Imperial Ambition, on Stormtrooper since he can soak up damage and inflict expose whenever he misses or doesn’t critically hit since he’ll have a lot of chances to counter and also be called to assist Piett when he uses his basic ability if stormtrooper has inevitable failure, and out of turn attacks up the wazoo from the whole team for lots of stacks of The Emperor’s Trap to help stack Imperial Super Commando’s offense like crazy.

    I certainly see what you’re getting at but I don’t think the stormtrooper really works that well with those guys. Plus the whole strat could be easily shut down with daze, shock, or stun. Definitely an interesting combo and try it if you like but idk

    Mostly just for fun shenanigans.

    Rangetrooper gives Retribution to his allies so synergizes better with those guys IMO. I like Storm on that team. Sounds like fun.

    I understood the point just think he will be better utilized with Vader palps .
    Even as someone with full G12+ imps and gar I think he will improve them but might be a real important piece to Vader .

    Also is the TM gain for stacking buff like HoT never really taken noticed thought it was for unique buffs .

    To be honest idk. Imp troop teams don’t use stacking buffs normally. I guess I’ll just run them during the marquee event with piett and see what happens.

  • @TheRealDarthJarJar

    I think your theory was right .
    The TM gain is good and it looks to be enough to take imps up a rank .

    He does make Vader more OP though ,Vader after MM seems good enough already .
