FINAL TEXT: The Armorer loses all stacks of Beskar Ingot and grants target other ally a tier of Beskar Armor equal to the number of stacks of Beskar Ingot removed until the end of the encounter, which can't be copied, dispelled, or prevented. This ability can't be used if you have no stacks of Beskar Ingot.

Beskar Armor

1 Stack- +50% Defence and +15% Health Up

2 Stack- Recover 30% Protection at the end of turn

3 Stack- +100% Counter Chance and can't be critically hit


Special 2: THIS IS THE WAY (Cooldown 3)

FINAL TEXT: At the start of battle, Mandalorian allies gain Protection Up (200%), which can't be dispelled or prevented, and Critical Hit Immunity for 2 turns.

FINAL TEXT: The first time another ally falls below 60% Health, The Armorer gains a stack of Beskar Ingot and that ally recovers 40% Protection. The Armorer starts with 2 stacks of Beskar Ingot.

    JML as synergy suggestion lol

    That is a surprise for sure

    Wat Tank Tech + Beskar Ignot with 2 Stacks on JML would be crazy good (60% protection recovery per turn)

    What's the AI priority for distributing Beskar Ingots?

    I'll take what is RNG for 1000

    No harm in waiting for official confirmation since some abilities and tageting have priorities

    I'm still not seeing a good synergy with BMA, but maybe Bo-Katan or someone else might be the missing link to complete his squad

    Although the insights recommend waiting for 100% counter chance, that's kinda useless when BMA has disciplined stance and it feels like a contradiction or a waste if AI uses it on him
  • Finally! Sabine is being used for something!
  • Don't you remember when the Armorer helped Rey and Jedi Master Luke and worked with Wat Tambor?

    Not exactly an accurate game now is it lmao, Master Luke can fight with his old self, father and a dead separatist leader

    3 stacks under JKR lead means JML would recover protection every time he counters, too...
  • hate the non faction synergy all the time...

    Is the leadership like Bastila lead that gives a permanent protection up until it's "burned through"? Or is only for 2 turns. The way its worded it seems like it's only 2 turns, just want to make sure.
    Only the critical hit immunity is for two turns, I’m guessing the protection works exactly like bastilas


  • I'm interested to see how The Armorer works with Beskar Mando. If she was a scoundrel, that could make for a crazy good team, but we'll have to see. I could see her being used with BMando anyway, although she wouldn't get the scoundrel synergy.

    The protection on the leadership is a good benefit, but the rest of it seems completely lackluster. I leave the possibility open that I am missing something, but I do not see a good reason to use her leadership with the Mandalorian tag when Beskar, non-Beskar Mando, Canderous, and Jango are best used elsewhere.
  • This kit is insanely disappointing

    I think the real mando lead tag for a good while will be Bo-Katan and this is just a placeholder lead to provide some synergy between the tags

    I don't see the point of having a mando tag only team either, I think Jango needs a touch up to have his PO activated under Mando lead too

    we spoke about it. that situation and the Bast lead team came up. its random, to make it avoid being setup to 100% work on defense.

    As the first new toon of 2021, i imagine there will be more mandalorian tagged toons on the way for her to synergise with like bo katan or koska reeves etc

    Oh ok

    Why do they don't want teams to do well on defense is beyond me, most of the benefit on investing on toons is to have them be great on defense

    As interesting as that would be, i was thinking realistically. Clone wars is finished and i really doubt we will see pre viszla in media anytime soon (considering he’s dead). And unless they decide to return to clone wars as a theme for toons, (which is very unlikely die to all the new star wars projects upcoming which they will likely focus on), most likely toons will be mandos from the mandalorian (and potentially the new ahsoka show)

    This can make teams work great on defense, but I believe this is one of those things they did to make sure those specific comps dont automatically work.

    this intention with this was probably to avoid timeout teams, but also they try to push certain ideas on toons and teams, some better at PvP, some at PvE, some offense, some at defense. making them good at all/most/more of them may be too OP, and/or reserved for a certain level of toon.

    Though if we get Pre Vizla, can we please get the real Gar Saxon (Clone Wars S7) in game?

    But the real question is are they fixing the lobby music in this update

    Its only a timeout team if you don't have the right toons (which means the player isn't investing the resources correctly)

    SEE can still prevent Wat + Armorer combos,
    Raid Han can also prevent Armorer + Wat combos,
    etc

    We just had a Galactic Challenge where it showed Imperial Troopers can potentially timeout in certain scenarios

    But no point arguing since they already made their decision on something i disagree with
  • It’s hammer time lol
  • Unrestricted unique and the fact that SLKR deletes a pre taunt, maybe she's the missing Sith lord that makes SEE counter kylo?
  • Can you add a stack onto another stack to bring it to tier two Beskar Armor?
