UNIT NAME: Leia Organa
CATEGORIES: Tank, Leader, Rebel

Key Attributes:
  • Offensive power house, able to be competitive with most GLs on Offensive
  • Enemy Role call out, all abilities do something to enemies based on role (including new icons showing you what role each enemy is)
  • Empowers Rebel allies, bringing a Galactic Legend power-level team to the Rebel Alliance
  • Leia prevents all cooldown manipulation, you’ll have no fear about not having your abilities when you expect to
  • Tank that doesn’t Taunt - drawing the aggro away from her allies. Enemies will find they need to target her (but are not forced to), this is meant to emulate how the Empire is always after her. The Fearless buff means you need to attack her to prevent her from punishing your squad back.

  • We chose the Endor Strike Team version of Leia for her Galactic Legend as this was a time where she was very active on the battlefield, as well as in honor of the 40th anniversary of Return of the Jedi
  • Like she is ambushing you, you can’t hide from her squad
  • She tries to level the battlefield, stopping cooldown manipulation, getting around taunt, dispel Foresight - need to face her head on.
  • Lots of R2 calls outs from her time working with the droid. Calls R2 to assist frequently. Never underestimate a droid!
  • She has synergy with Jedi Rebel Tanks, like Old Ben and Kanan, (each of whom she has interacted with in her past)

Strategy Tips:
  • Due to how tactical she is and her identity as a key target, she is better served on Offense than Defense. She can still hold some ground on Defense, but she was designed as a more Offensive GL.
  • Enemy roles can influence your decision making as well as the abilities to prioritize them. Choosing the right target with the right ability can drastically change the outcome of the battle.
    • Damage the squad receives is a big mechanic
    • A percentage of allies received damage gets converted to bonus true damage for her basic on her next turn
  • All damage Leia takes, heals her allies at the start of her turn for the damage dealt to her
  • Tactical Offensive - Your choice picking which character loses TM, which adds some complexity to the mechanic. Be sure to watch out for Stun making you miss your turn because the buff only lasts one turn. A hard-hitting unit like Captain Drogan can almost 1 shot most units in the game, but this ability has tradeoffs.
  • Leia’s squad can have a ton of out of turn attacks, between Drogan, R2 and Jedi Tanks. Leia also applies Retribution for even more attacks!
  • Keeping Call to Action up is important to generate Ultimate Charge. Can also gain Ultimate Charge from Fearless


Why did we gate Threepio and Chewie’s Unique with GL Leia’s release
Threepio and Chewie’s kit was long before the realm of Rebel GL possibilities, we've been better about pre-gating things recently (ex. Trench excluding Separatist GLs even tho there isn't one now)
No net impact to balance of the existing CLS squad

Does Ambush decrease Speed Stack beyond -50?
No, can have multiple stacks but unit will only have -50 speed

Bonus Damage and Ignore Protection on Basic from Tactical Offensive

Only applies to the first attack/instance of Damage on that character’s next turn. If your character uses their Basic twice, like Han Solo, the second instance of damage will not get these bonuses

Can Second Wind be dispelled?
Yes, it can

How does Forever Our Princess stat bonuses impact R2-D2’s Number Crunch
Forever Our Princess stats are applied to R2 before R2’s Number Crunch triggers

How will I know what the enemy’s role is?
New Role Icons - On her turn, enemies will have a role icon for better understanding of how her abilities will impact the battle

Why are there some non-Rebel Scoundrel callouts?
While a fun nod to her banter with Han, it also helps us keep the CLS squad intact and tune around units without making Han and Chewie spin way too high up.

Why is there Call to Action synergy if CLS isn’t intended to be on the ideal squad?
We liked the idea of expanding that buff to more Rebels and using it in other ways. Call to Action aligns with the type of leader Leia was for the Rebel Alliance. She was very upfront and unafraid to dictate the battlefield and stare down the opposition. She provides it for her entire Rebel team as a rallying call to press the attack against the enemy.
