UNIT NAME: Lord Vader
ALIGNMENT: Dark Side
CATEGORIES: Galactic Legend, Dark Side, Attacker, Leader, Empire, Sith
Legendary Sith Lord who utilizes the actions of others to empower his own potential and is not to be underestimated.


ABILITIES:

Ultimate: END OF THE GALACTIC REPUBLIC
Description: Requires at least 65% Ultimate Charge to activate.

Ultimate Charge: Lord Vader gains Ultimate Charge when he uses Dark Harbinger and when debuffed Dark Side allies receive damage he gains 2% Ultimate Charge, increased to 3% if that ally was an Unaligned Force User.

Lord Vader gains 50% of other Dark Side allies' current Mastery (stacking) until the end of the encounter, then they lose that much. Empire and Dark Side Unaligned Force User allies don't lose Mastery from this ability.

If 100% Ultimate Charge was used, Lord Vader instead gains 75% Mastery from this ability, dispels all debuffs on himself, takes a bonus turn, reduces his cooldowns by 1, and gains Ashes of the Republic for 5 turns, which can't be copied, dispelled, or prevented.

Ashes of the Republic: Lord Vader's abilities gain additional effects; enemies defeated while this is active can't be revived; Lord Vader is immune to Ability Block, Healing Immunity, and Shock; can't gain Ultimate Charge.

Basic: VINDICTIVE STORM

If a Dark Side Unaligned Force User ally was present at the start of battle, for the rest of the battle all Empire or Dark Side Unaligned Force User allies take 30% reduced damage from enemy Light Side Unaligned Force User attacks. If all allies are Dark Side at the start of battle, Empire and Dark Side Unaligned Force User allies are immune to Fear, Empire Tanks gain Taunt for 2 turns, and when an Empire ally loses Taunt, they are inflicted with Marked for 1 turn, which can't be dispelled, prevented, or resisted.

Whenever a Dark Side ally loses a buff, Empire and Dark Side Unaligned Force User allies gain 1% Mastery (stacking) until the end of encounter. Whenever a debuffed Dark Side ally takes damage, Lord Vader gains 2% Ultimate Charge, increased to 3% if that ally was an Unaligned Force User.

Empire and Dark Side Unaligned Force User allies have +35% Critical Chance and Critical Damage when targeting a Galactic Republic enemy. Whenever an enemy critically hits an Empire or Dark Side Unaligned Force User ally, that enemy has -30% Critical Damage (stacking) for 3 turns.

    And now we know why max health reduction effects were nerfed against GL’s

    I mean they could've given LV and his allies max health reduction immunity, so that wasn't it

    It was just treating them as raid bosses

  • While above 50% Health: They are immune to Damage Over Time and Thermal Detonator effects

    According to the video with OM, its today
  • not sure why Maul is there, but he should have synergy with clone troopers too
  • While above 50% Health: They are immune to Damage Over Time and Thermal Detonator effects

    rip jawas, greedo, dengar and zam lead counters if that's a thing

    Lol imagine Jawas countering LV. Maul using 5x special, LV Basic in ultimate (no. of times he damages the enemy).

    Dark Side allies have +20 Speed, +20% Mastery, and +15% Max Health, doubled for Empire or Dark Side
    All these will be doubled or just max health will be doubled? It'll look like +40 speed/+40% mast/+30% max health?
    Huge bump from JMK +30 speed, + 25% Mastery and +25% max health
  • For each stack of Underestimated, this ability deals 2.5% more damage, and all Dark Side allies gain 1% Mastery (stacking) until the end of the encounter.

    The wording here is a little ambiguous, do Dark Side allies gain a flat 1% or is it 1% per stack of Underestimated? I assume it's the former?
  • Oh Lord Vader can use trash allies with him to be awesome meanwhile. JML needs 4 Top tier allies. Wat / JKL / GAS / JKR. Even in the gameplay video that was shown they use that team. and that is in Grand arena... TW and TB his use is diminished even more by your nerfs. Buff Luke CG

    I’d contest that Vader and Piett are “trash”. Thrawn… good-ish. Nothing on Royal Guard.

    Coincidentally, all of these are requirements for SEE.

    My understanding is that at 10 stacks of underestimated:

    - 25% more damage
    - 10% Mastery for all Dark Side allies
  • Dev Insights called suited Darth Vader a “helmeted hooligan”.

    Bruh.
  • If only someone said he was going to be Empire before Kenobi released
    Excited to see it, but disappointed he doesn't have our first counter to Damage Immunity
