All of the Phoenix characters have interesting kits, but the team is outdated and they are generally pigeonholed into an all-Phoenix team composition. This rework attempts to address this in a lore-consistent fashion by facilitating Phoenix members' use outside of a Phoenix team, particularly in pairs (as was common in episodes of Star Wars: Rebels). It also provides some options for non-Phoenix members to round out a Phoenix team which only has three or four Phoenix members. Finally, it provides a small but substantial boost to a full Phoenix team in the form of a new Zeta ability for Ezra, which elicits a pre-taunt from Kanan, and interacts with newer content (the Inquisitorious faction).
Sabine was addressed less than the other members, because she already fits well in various Mandalorian comps (a faction which is likely to grow).
Ezra's proposed new ability, which has a Zeta and Omicron, reflects the many mentors and protectors he had over his journey in SW: Rebels. This includes not only Kanan
, but Maul, Hondo, Ahsoka (Fulcrum), Hera, Saw Gererra,
and even Old Ben
Add “Rebel Fighter” to Hera’s tags.Chopper
Add “Scoundrel” to Chopper’s tags.Ahsoka Tano (Fulcrum)
Add to “Meditate” text: “If Ezra Bridger or Kanan Jarrus are present, they also gain this Foresight buff. Otherwise, grant it to a random Phoenix ally if one is present.”
