Loyal Clone Trooper who supports his allies in battle.

FINAL TEXT: Deal Physical damage to target enemy. Grant Defense Up and Evasion Up for 2 turns to the weakest Clone Trooper ally who doesn't have them.

Special 1: ONE STEP AHEAD (Cooldown 3)

FINAL TEXT: Inflict Buff Immunity on target enemy for 2 turns. Inflict Expose on all enemies for 2 turns. Dispel all debuffs on target other Clone Trooper ally and call them to assist. If that ally was Bad Batch, this Buff Immunity can't be dispelled, and Echo increases the target enemy's cooldowns by 1 (excludes Galactic Legends). This attack can't be evaded.

Special 2: NEVER ANY DOUBT (Cooldown 3)

FINAL TEXT: Clone Trooper allies gain Evasion Up for 2 turns. Dispel all buffs on all enemies and inflict Daze and Healing Immunity for 2 turns.

For each buff dispelled, Clone Trooper allies gain 10% Offense until the end of their next turn and Bad Batch allies gain 5% Turn Meter. This attack can't be evaded or resisted.

Unique 1: (ZETA) ONE THAT SURVIVES

FINAL TEXT: Whenever a Clone Trooper ally gains or loses a buff from a Bad Batch ally's ability, they recover 4% Health and Protection, doubled for Bad Batch allies.

Whenever a Bad Batch ally inflicts a debuff on an enemy, that enemy loses 8% Protection. If that enemy had less than 50% Protection and more than 50% Health, they also lose 8% Health. This effect excludes raid bosses and Galactic Legends.

    One of the best support toons (limited to clones tho) imo

    AOE daze, undispellable BI, health and protection recovery, % protection loss, cleanse

    Solid kit all around
  • No Crosshair?
    I’m sure he’s coming out next. They gotta have a squad of five
  • Where are the May 4th rewards we were promised?
  • What does it mean by "loses a buff by a bad batch ally"?

    Spoilers for 1st episode of Bad Batch
    I think Crosshair will eventually be rescued by the others and we'll get him as the fifth Bad Batch; or maybe Omega will be? Only time will tell

    Echo's kit is great.
    Ep. 1 Spoilers:
    I would say though that they will make Omega the fifth member and add an Imperial Crosshair instead though, since Crosshair joins the Empire and leaves the Bad Batch.
    "The dark side of the Force is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural."
  • Is it only going to be a four person team? I get no Crosshair, but they will lose a lot of viability in GAC, TW, and TB without a full squad.

    What does it mean by "loses a buff by a bad batch ally"?

    When a buff expires or is dispelled/used up which a Bad Batch ally gave. So whenever a BB ally gives a buff and whenever those same buffs are lost in any one way

    I hate all the "excludes Galactic Legends" stuff in the kits anymore. Of course I also hate a large chunk of the "can't be evaded/resisted" attacks too. Especially when this team gets a lot of potency.

    Overall I like the kit though. This group looks really, really good. It's going to be interesting to see who emerges as the best 5th.

    Maybe his inhibitor chip will be removed and he comes back.

    I don't mind excludes GL, it means they don't have to compensate it by making Galactic Legends ridiculously strong so that the meta balance remains as they intend it to be

    And yet this time you weren't second.

    Or third. Or fourth. Or fifth.

    What have you become.

  • Hopefully Crosshair gets a redemption (
    probably through removal of the chip
    )
    and they add him as the 5th to this squad
