Leader - Legacy of Power (Omicron)

Final Text: Sith Empire allies are immune to Turn Meter reduction. For each Sith Empire ally at the start of battle (excluding summoned allies), Sith Empire allies have +10% Critical Chance and Max Health and +10 Speed.

The first time any other ally falls below 50% Health, at the end of that turn all enemies are inflicted with Fear for 1 turn, which can't be dispelled, evaded, or resisted.

Darth Malgus is immune to Stun and Fear. Whenever Doubt expires from an enemy, Sith Empire allies gain a stack of We Have Returned for 4 turns, which can't be copied, dispelled, or prevented.

We Have Returned: +5% Critical Damage and Offense per stack

Whenever Doubt is dispelled on an enemy, that enemy is inflicted with Expose for 2 turns, which can't be resisted. While enemies are inflicted with Doubt, they have -20% Speed, -20% Tenacity, and -30% Critical Damage.

At the start of battle, if all allies are Sith (excluding summoned allies), Darth Malgus gains an additional 50% Max Health and Max Protection and 60 Speed. At the start of battle, Darth Malgus recovers 100% Health and Protection.

If all allies were Sith at the start of battle: At the start of each encounter Darth Malgus Taunts for 2 turns. Whenever Doubt expires on an enemy, that enemy is inflicted with Fear for 1 turn. The first time each turn Doubt is dispelled on an enemy, two random enemies who didn't already have it are inflicted with Doubt for 2 turns at the end of that turn. These debuffs can't be resisted.

While in Grand Arenas: If all allies were Sith at the start of battle: Instead, the first time each turn Doubt is dispelled on an enemy, all other enemies that didn't already have it are inflicted with Doubt for 2 turns at the end of that turn, which can't be resisted.


QUESTIONS

Question: The lead omicron for Malgus says for each SE ally at the start of battle, SE Allies gain +10% Crit Chance, Max Health, and +10 speed, does Malgus include himself?

Answer: Yes

Questions: Does doubt function like a normal debuff? If so, and it could theoretically be removed via an ability from Malgus’ team like culling blade, does that count as an ‘expiration’ or a ‘dispel’?

Answer: Yes, Doubt functions as a normal debuff and an ability like "Culling Blade" would count as a Dispel"

Question: Does Doubt stack?

Answer: No

    Love Old Republic content, and era

    So pretty cool to see Malgus being added, and as a strong unit (conquest not marquee)

    You must be super excited to unlock him.
    The CGDF is no more. Now we hate CG because of the change to the shipment tab. Say hi in our Discord! https://discord.gg/AmStGTH
  • Another non-canon fake star wars character.

    So sick of this. Where is Bail Organa, Saw Gerrerra, people who actually happen in *real* star wars ffs.

    Honestly, leave toons from video games and cheesy legends books to that. Not a single toon from the sw resistance show.

    Keep it canon and stop making fake characters OP in the game.

    last I checked, every character in star wars was fake.

    On top of that, KOTOR and the old republic in general is considered some of the greatest star wars content out there, albeit only if you're versed in it.

    Considering SWTOR is still ongoing AND the KOTOR remake is coming out, it's likely they are being embraced into official canon as well.
  • Holy **** is the only thing I can say right now xD

    That´s flipping amazing B)
  • Honestly so happy that Malgus is coming to the game! Defiantly going to whale harder!! I'm still waiting for the day they make a GL Malgus, Revan (just a old republic character xD)

    UNIQUE: Korriban's Legacy (Omicron)

    Final Text: Darth Malgus is immune to Healing Immunity,

    Beautiful. It's sad that it's 3 months away from unlocking. Darth Malgus is really one of the best characters in SW Universe i'm really happy. The only part i'm concerned is that i think Malgus is a GL level of a character but i can see that if they decided to put Malgus on a level of a Conquest Character then i think we will get the GL Revan announcement soon. By the way add that Immune to Healing Immunity thing to Lord Vaders kit without ult state.

  • I'm wondering if they're going to keep with the trend of having the Conquest characters tie into Galactic Legends, like with CAT and Maul. If so, I can only imagine that Vitiate/Valkorion/Tenebrae will be the next Dark Side GL, and if they decide to continue with honoring SWTOR this year, then I'm guessing the LS Conquest will be Satele Shan, and the LS GL will be Revan Reborn, with the LS characters focusing on Old Republic more than Jedi, since we already have JML for Jedi.

    Anyone else think this might be likely? Any other guesses for Conquest/Galactic Legends?
