Key Attributes:
  • Wookiee together, strong!
  • Tarfful is home now
  • What bounces off me sticks to you
  • Synergy for Wookiees
  • Defense = Offense, use those defense mods
  • Clone Wars Chewie finally has a home!


Inspiration:
  • While a featured Wookiee in Revenge of the Sith (RotS), the version of Tarfful we have embraced visually is from his appearance in Jedi: Fallen Order
  • We looked at his scenes in RotS where he leads the charge against the Separatists for his Special abilities, Wookiee Fury and Rrrruuuurrr.


Strategy Tips:
  • Your Defense value will enhance the amount of offense output, defense mods recommended!
  • Damage reflect triggers when opposing team has no Galactic Legends
  • Wookiee ally = Good
  • While many benefits are for Wookiees, don’t be afraid to bring some of their best friends like Veteran Smuggler Han Solo or Mission Vao


FAQ:
Is spelling Wookiee correctly, with two e’s at the end, a hill you are willing to die on?
Unwaveringly yes.
Does Defense from mods count towards the Offense that Wookiees gain?
Yes, the ability looks at the current Defense at the start of the turn, which includes Defense from mods.
Where do you get Tarfful?
Marquee event starting Thursday
Is Tarfful required for anything?
Yes, you will need a 7*, Gear 12, Tarfful for Jedi Knight Cal Kestis’ Hero’s Journey
He will also make the Wookiee-only mission in the Rise of the Empire Territory Battle more manageable.

    Hope you guys are releasing more wookiees, because there ain't no way I'm tanking my other teams to put all the wookiees together.

    I am planning to just use Tarfull, Vet Chewie, Zalbaar, Vet Han and Mission Vao. Budget team with all R3 and Tarfull Omi.

    We are likely to gear up Zalbaar and Mission Vao of the OR faction for the new raid.

    Might end up giving CWC a miss.

    Clone wars chewie is based on... clone wars.
    Tarfful is mainly based on fallen order when There was no galactic republic, but did use his apperence then to help design abilities

    I mean, the synergy suggestions are Clone Wars Chewie, Zaalbar, Vet Chewie, and if you slot Vet Han as the 5th, those are 4 characters that really aren't used anywhere for anything.

    Just a reminder since it's not in the kit and being in only two places (Fifth Brother / Pike enemy kits) people might not yet be that familiar:

    Provoked: (debuff)
    +100% counter chance; this character deals 90% less damage when attacking out of turn; whenever this character attacks out of turn, they take damage equal to 20% of their Max Health; this damage can't defeat this character

    Might be fun against GAS

    By the sound of things, these wookiees will be tough to crack unless you bring someone who either, ignores defense, or has a lot of attacks and/or inflicts a lot of debuffs that deal max health based damage, like deathmark, plague, Damage over time, or exposed, or I guess just deal a lot of damage before they can stack up their defense.

    I feel like Tarfful’s unique ability gives a decent incentive to switch between Mission or Veteran Smuggler Han, depending on the situation, or whichever of the two you want to throw in with the wookiees. Zaalbar likely gaining retribution frequently means more potential damage over times, which means more potential protection recovery for himself and Mission, as well as most enemies dying faster, and Han gaining the bonuses from Tarfful’s second special ability, means he’ll be doing a good bit more damage with the increased critical damage, and a bit of extra armor penetration for each status effect he gains during that turn, especially if Veteran Smuggler Chewbacca has been taking a few hits. With all the debuffs potentially flying on the enemy team, Han will also be getting a lot of bonus attacks, and a lot of chances to inflict stagger.

    Seems super fun, though I still think Clone Wars Chewie needs a rework

    I'm glad someone is! It's important, ha.

    Super excited for the Wookiee tag to be a thing. Looking forward to getting more characters for the tag, too. I was just trying to decide on a new team to start working towards and this is definitely it.

    I’m just glad that quite a few characters lately have been moving away from the “speed, speed, speed” modding mentality, and making use of the other stats in the game. It gets boring when you’re quite literally only looking for a single stat out of all the others for every single team, because the other stats apparently don’t matter.

    Well they did it long time ago (both vet smuggler), in this Galactic challenge Vet chewie can even 1 shot your relic tusken if you left him alone for too long.

    Its just characters with hard CCs with too much speed and easily go nearly an infinite loop if they are fast enough. You get your turns, just cant move because of hard CCs.

    This is the first time I’m hearing about something called a “hard CC” could I get some context on what that means, so I can better understand what’s being said? Otherwise, sure I guess the veteran smugglers have somewhat of a countermeasure against fast enemies, but I’m talking more like a lot of characters lately have strayed away from the whole “be as fast as possible” ideology, rather than being a one-off thing, then just going right back to the f1 Grand Prix school of modding.

    I thought it's common because of MMO and/or MoBA?

    Hard cc is prevent control of the character, like stun, fear, fracture.
    Soft cc is you can still control your character but only partial, for example ability block, daze, blind...etc
