UNIT NAME: Gungan Boomadier
ALIGNMENT: Light Side
CATEGORIES: Attacker, Gungan

Key Attributes:
  • Can add stacks of Plasma Shielding to the Shield Generator!
  • Damage is amplified when attacking enemies who have been debuffed by Captain Tarpals & Boss Nass
  • Horn of Otoh Gunga gives Gungan Boomadier Frenzy and another Gungan ally a Bonus Turn (That’s Bananas)
  • While the Shield Generator is up, any Special ability that Gungan Boomadier uses will provide him with stacking Defense Penetration and Offense

Inspiration:
  • When figuring out who the Gungans in the squad would include, we took the concept of the Gungan Militiagung and broke it out into both the shield-bearing Phalanx and the unit we’re talking about today, the Boomadier
  • We wanted to include the iconic Horn of Otoh (Oh-Tuh) Gunga in the squad somewhere and it felt at home here on Boomadier

Strategy Tips:
  • Best when used with all Gungans
  • Speed and Crit Chance are solid mods to look at
  • Where Boomadier goes in the turn order will benefit your damage output


FAQ:

When is the Gungan Boomadier available?
His Marquee begins this Thursday at 11a Pacific time
Does his Marquee have daily rewards like Boss Nass and Captain Tarpals?
Yes!
Where is the Omicron?
As it’s a Raid Omicron, his Omicron is arriving with the new Battle for Naboo Raid
Anything about the rewards in the Marquee that is changing?
  • The amount of Omicrons for the first time reward for Tier 7 has been upped from 2 to 4 to account for needing all Gungans Relic 5
  • The time when the daily reset time happens for the Marquee is now 11a Pacific

Final Text:
Deal Physical damage to all enemies and inflict Ability Block for 1 turn. Separatist enemies are inflicted with Protection Disruption for 2 turns, which can't be copied, dispelled, or resisted. Remove 3 stacks of Recharge from allied Shield Generator and it gains 2 stacks of Plasma Shielding. Swap Turn Meter with target other Gungan ally, and Boomadier gains Frenzy for 1 turn. Target other Gungan ally gains Accuracy Up for 2 turns.

Final Text:
At the start of battle, Gungan Boomadier loses 75% Max Health and gains that much Max Protection.
Gungan Boomadier has +30% Defense Penetration and Offense.
While an allied Shield Generator is active:
Enemies defeated by Gungan Attackers can't be revived
Whenever Gungan Boomadier uses a Special ability, gain 5% Defense Penetration and Offense (stacking, persists through defeat) for the rest of battle
While a Gungan ally has Retribution, they are immune to Target Lock

    I'd honestly like to see someone make a better drawing than this.

    I'll wait.

    That’s a lot of damage!

    Probably. Still want to see the Tank (and also is Retribution on the other two units? A neat sneak peak if not.)

    Why did the reset change to 11AM? That gives us one less day to obtain extra shards, id rather not have to spend another $10 for 7 shards just to unlock 5 stars. Its bad enough we have to drop $30 for 30 shards just to access the additional tiers.

    2 stacks of plasma shield every 5 turns. So impactful.

    Why does special 1 animation appear to be an aoe, but the ability is single target? Just confusing.

    I was thinking the same thing. Read the description like 5 times to make sure I wasn't missing something

    It looks like it hits all separatists. So if you are against a full separatist team, it hits everyone. If you are up against Bossk bounty hunters and you target bossk, it also hits Jango. That's at least how I'm reading it.

    That's what I thought on first glance, but i think its that it deals additional damage (up to 5) per debuff, but if target is a sep, it deals 5 additional damage regardless of debuffs. I don't think its an AOE, but gonna ask in the Q&A
