FINAL TEXT (ZETA): Dispel all debuffs on Rebel Fighter allies. Rebel Fighter allies gain Defense Up and Speed Up for 2 turns. Deal Physical damage to all enemies and inflict Force Influence on target enemy for 2 turns, which can't be copied.

Unique: BLUE MILK RUN
FINAL TEXT (OMICRON): At the start of each encounter, Kyle Katarn gains 10% Turn Meter for each other Rebel Fighter ally.

Whenever a Rebel Fighter ally attacks out of turn, they gain 12% Offense (stacking, max 60%) until the end of their next turn.

Whenever Kyle Katarn attacks out of turn, he gains a stack of Force Connection until the end of battle, which can't be copied, dispelled, or prevented (stacking, max 10 stacks).

When Kyle Katarn reaches 10 stacks of Force Connection, he resets his cooldowns, loses all stacks of Force Connection, and gains Jedi Knight until the end of the battle which can't be copied, dispelled, or prevented.

At the start of the encounter, if the enemy leader is a Sith, Rebel Fighter allies have +50% Defense and Tenacity, and +25% Max Health until the end of the encounter.

Force Connection:+2% Defense and Offense

Jedi Knight: Kyle Katarn and Rebel Fighters gain 50% Defense and Offense; can't gain Force Connection. This bonus applies to Jedi allies in Territory Battles

While in Territory Battles: Enemies can't gain bonus Turn Meter and Force Influence can't be resisted. When Kyle Katarn attacks out of turn, he gains an additional stack of Force Connection, and the bonuses of Jedi Knight also apply to other Jedi allies. At the start of each encounter, all Jedi and Rebel Fighter allies gain 75% bonus Protection until the end of the encounter. At the start of each encounter, Kyle Katarn gains 10% Turn Meter for each other Jedi ally.

  • Woo!

  • Yussss
  • Animations look awesome
  • Love the animations!
  • Animations look really pretty. Now to see how hard Kyle hits ingame. :D
  • So his omicron is used for 4 battles once a month. Got it…

    Blue Milk Run ability should have specific synergy with JML

    Just sayin'

    It kinda does, it gives him bonuses when he attacks out of turn, which JML's lead causes a lot.

    As opposed to all the TW ones, which are 4 times a month. Oh wait.

    Exactly… These omicrons are not as big of a deal to game as they could have been.
  • In the other thing it says this legacy tier and all future ones will require the 5* character PLUS the recent legacy character 5* sounds like some bull not only for ftp and ptw players maybe I'm overacting ,any thoughts?

    It’s for three Omicrons. Small reward for the people that will whale on them.

    The animations look great, and this kit looks pretty good!
    One may learn a great deal about a people by the stories they tell of others.

    Thank you for evaluating. Your feedback has been noted.

    Plus CLS teams arent Rebel Fighters so he doesn't benefit them anyhow.
  • He will get some benefit from the extra attacks.
    But as a Jedi he would be a better fit with Jedi Knight/Master Luke or Jedi Knight Revan for more consistent out of turn attacks.
  • This makes me want to go play Jedi Knight Outcast again, despite the awful Vertical City and stealth levels. Especially since this is week 2 of hardly any events.

    Looks like a solid addition to a MM rebel fighter team. Now who to replace...

  • These animations look cool. I like his kit. I wish I had training droids for him, but I’m saving them for Mara Jade.
  • Aww man just a guy with a lightsaber animation missed the mark. Should of been the jedi outcast kick with the Saber throw.

    Someone's never known the pain of trying to field 3 serviceable Jedi teams at once.

    What animations were people expecting for Lord Vader, really?

    Spin his lightsaber in a circle 10 times before striking with it??

    He doesn't showcase much in his battle vs Kenobi, but I think his animations are fine

    Some characters (Kyle Katarn) have more content to create animations from (two entire games)
  • Not a scoundrel so I will pa....DAT ANIMATIONS!
