UNIT NAME: Luthen Rael
ALIGNMENT: Light Side
CATEGORIES: Rebel, Rebel Fighter, Light Side, Support

Key Attributes:
  • Summon a Rebel Commander to fight for you
  • With Luthen on the team, any Rebel Troopers summoned will instantly be promoted to a Rebel Commander
  • Kit changes depending on the Leader (Saw Gerrera or not)
  • When not using Saw Gerrera as leader, he works best with Mon’s Rebel Fighters
  • Has both great offense and defense capabilities, depending on the comp and strategy you use them for

Inspiration:
  • One of our favorite characters from Andor!
  • We leaned into the dual identities he had in the show with the Axis and Curator effects and having him work differently with different Rebel Fighter Leaders
  • Every ability name was taken from the impactful monologue he gives

Strategy Tips:
  • Kit is more offensive with Saw Gerrera as the Leader, otherwise more supportive
  • With Saw Gerrera as the Leader, the summoned Rebel Troopers will gain the new Expendable Asset effect
  • In Grand Arenas, Luthen’s Special 1 (What Do I Sacrifice?) lets the targeted Rebel Fighter / Mon Mothma ignore Taunt until the end of their next turn
  • With Saw Gerrera as the Leader, letting the Rebel Trooper be defeated is beneficial since it resets the cooldowns of your Attacker Rebel Fighter allies, whereas it’s more beneficial to keep the Rebel Trooper alive with Mon Mothma as the Leader

FAQ:

How do we get Luthen Rael?

He will be the next Conquest reward character
What are the names of the new effects?
Axis (With Saw Gerrera)
Curator (Without Saw Gerrera)
Expendable Asset (Only for the Summon)
Is there a difference between Mon Mothma’s Rebel Trooper and Luthen Rael’s Trooper?
They have the same kit design but are visually different so you know who summoned them
Additionally, Luthen will automatically promote the Trooper to Commander no matter who summons them
Can I have two Summoned Troopers on the field at the same time?
No

    I'm so chuffed you added him to the game. I expected him sometime but not this soon. Cool kit!

    When do we get his ship?

    Just riffing but I hope this is a precursor to a Rebel Cell faction - and an ISB faction too. Andor was by a country mile the best thing Disney has done so far with the franchise (& the ship just goes without saying)

    I don't know the general opinion, but I'm personally really not excited for this character. I'm sure he'll be good and relevant, but CG should put more weight into characters that people are actually interested in rather than new shows. An Old Republic character would have been epic. Time to wait 3 more months, I guess... Disappointing.

    Speak for yourself. I think Andor was a great show, and Luthen was a great character. I do have to admit that a good chunk of the new/new-ish stuff wasn't great, but Andor wasn't one of them. Not saying there aren't better toons out there that they could have released, but I'm certain that many will like this Luthen release.

    That people are more interested in a Video Game era v/s a New TV Show is 1 heck of an assumption.

    Not saying there aren't better toons out there that they could have released, but I'm certain that many will like this Luthen release.

    As canon characters go, Luthen is pretty cool, and anything to help the Saw &/or MM teams is probably a good thing.

    Revan could also use some help so I do see the need for an OR Jedi too.

    That said, I'm hopeful that Luthen means we get a SHIP, which is actually the Most Needed thing this game needs IMO.

    I find it really interesting that he functions differently depending on who’s the team leader. I wonder if this sort of thing can be applied to more characters in the future?

    I wish we could get a Morlana One private security faction as well, with Syril Karn as their leader ...oh could you imagine :D

    Seems underwhelming as a conquest character. Cool character over all. Just seems lackluster for the conquest category. But so far queen amadala seems that way too. So maybe it’s just the new norm. Lol

    I submitted this as a question, but I'm curious if the auto resummon of the Rebel Trooper that I've highlighted in bold below, still falls under the condition of Mon Mothma leadership, or will work with any leader?

    UNIQUE 1: Dreams With Ghosts (Omicron)

    While in Grand Arenas: If there are no Rebel Galactic Legend allies at the start of battle, Mon Mothma and Rebel Fighter allies gain 30% Max Health, Mastery, and 20 Speed, and they gain Bonus Protection (50%) for 1 turn. The first time the Rebel Commander is defeated in each battle, summon a Rebel Trooper and promote them to Rebel Commander.

    I was kind of expecting Luthen to be a ROTE reward, but this works too. I really like the kit, looks like it will be fun.

    There is no condition of Mon Mothma only a no rebel GL condition, Mon Mothma is mentioned because she is no rebel fighter.

    I forgot Saw has an Omicron for his Leader in Grand Arena - which potentially makes the combo w/ Luthen even more attractive.

    Very happy to have Luthen in the game, and as a Conquest unit!

    Would be interesting to see that with someone like Crosshair, could have neutral BB/Empire synergy
