    Padme is based on Episode 2 and General Kenobi on Episode 3/Clone Wars.
    We needed Cobb Vanth shards for Krayt Dragon raid, Endor Gear Luke shards for Speeder Bike raid and Anakin Skywalker shards for Battle for Naboo raid?

    If you want to be consistent, these Jedi do not appear in Ep 1:
    Shaak Ti
    Aayla Secura
    Kelleran Beq
    Kit Fisto
    Luminara Unduli

    If you're going to include GR characters that existed but didn't appear then you should also include Separatists that existed but didn't appear:
    General Grievous
    Geonosians
    Count Dooku (since we don't have a LS version)
    Jango Fett
    Wat Tambor

    General Kenobi I can understand. However, padme was throughout episode 1-3. She definitely deserves a spot in the faction.

    So assume that there will be an announcement soon where you are providing easier access to Droid Brains and Signal Data for all those r9's?

    Seems like an odd emphasis on a GR healer leader, when there's only two allowed -- Luminara and Consular, the latter of which doesn't have a leader ability. Barriss would have been fantastic but she's not on the list. I'll definitely wait and see on Lum -- been burnt by raid bonus characters roo many times before (jawas...)

    Padme is there, just as Queen Amidala.

    Is it up to a 5-toon squad? I didn't notice that being mentioned

    Don’t see how that’s relevant considering almost half of the eligible characters weren’t at the battle.

    Edit: to be clear I have no problem with excluding padme or gk or including all the characters that weren’t on or near Naboo but let’s not pretend this was done for lore reasons. Raids need to force character development.

    Galactic Republic: Jedi Healers and Supports gain 50% Max Health and Jedi Healers and Tanks gain 50% Defense and Max Protection.
    Which is it for healers 50% max health or Max health? I'm confused

    What does "max rank" mean?
    Darth Sidious's Leader ability is active at max rank and applies to Separatist allies as well if he is not in the Leader slot.

    I think it is just to make all of us who relic him for ROTE OPs even further regret our investment haha.

    so I was wondering the same thing since you can't split seps and sith into two teams as there is only 7 DS chars in the allowed list. So I thought maybe it was smaller teams but then you have gungans which only make sense as a team of 5 so I figure it is will be 5.

    My guess is, it's because his lead has counter chance and by the look of it, they are trying to make a non-auto raid.

    So they're trying to force everyone to gear up the terrible jedi then.

    😆 At the risk of getting banned. You know who you are dealing with? The same team behind the Smash Mobile Game Hit LOTR:Middle Earth

    Why isn’t there any faction bonus for Gungans in any of the levels? I know there is a faction bonus overall. You guys gave faction bonuses to GR and Sep and than gave them both bonuses in the levels except Gungans. Doesn’t make any sense.

    So a few questions MeatHead :)

    1- Why are there not enough DS characters to make 2 teams? Is this an oversight or are we expecting 2 more to be added (Like a DS GL and DS Conquest unit ;) )
    2- You mentioned 'in space', by this do you mean our characters will be used on a map in space like the trade federation ship or does this raid have a fleet component?

    It looks and sounds fun, cant wait to see some footage from it

    This isn’t getting the nature boy excited to wheel or deal. Buncha low level Jedi toons trying to climb space mountain, only to be looking at the bottom of these alligator loafers under some pleated slacks! WOOOO

    The current Endor Raid has a "Level 0", but this announcement doesn't make a distinction for "Level 0" - so does that mean, in order to participate the characters must be Gear 12 or higher?

    And apparently, this is CG's way of making Luminara Unduli relevant because she's the ONLY Leader/Healer of all the characters listed. Yes, Jedi Consular is the only other healer, but doesn't have the Leader role. I suppose the "lack of synergy" caused by the Jedi Consular lacking the leadership role would be offset by the benefits of Jedi Leader/Healer.

    It's also apparent that Nute Gunray, Darth Sidious, and Darth Maul will need to be on the same squad in order to make effective use of the Separatist Leader being able to call all Sith allies to assist when they use a Special Ability. Especially since Darth Sidious' leadership qualities are enacted even if NOT in the leadership role.

    Judging by the fact that there's not 10 Dark Side characters, it would be impossible to field a strictly DS team - so it's assumed there will be some cross over? This is assuming that there's not a DS GL or other Marquee DS characters lurking in the shadows somewhere but hasn't been announced yet. (I can't imagine this happening, but CG has a way of surprising people, forcing the whales' hand).

    *** Yes, I'm aware that some people have already made these distinctions. I was more or less putting my own thoughts down on "paper". ***

    @CG_Tusken_Meathead

    I really do appreciate the information, thank you. A couple of formatting things would help as you're releasing this stuff, though, just to make it easier for players to read, digest, understand and then use the info as it comes out.

    1) When discussing difficulty tiers, set off the enemy bonuses in a way that makes clear when they're done. Right now the end of the bit about enemy stat bonuses goes right into a new sentence that doesn't say anything that makes it clear you're not talking about enemies anymore.

    2) The allowed toons should either be alphabetized or separated into factions and then alphabetized. There is no reason for B1 to be anything other than sequential with B2, and your Jedi are all over the map, which makes it hard to find a particular toon if you're looking for it. (For me I only have 3x g12 Jedi and I wanted to check which ones were on the list. It turned out to be all of them, and that's fine, but why make it a pain in my neck to find specific information that I'm looking for?)

    Again, thanks for the info and I'm not complaining about the release, just some of the formatting could be improved with just a tiny amount of effort on your part that saves individually tiny-to-small extra work but collectively quite a lot of effort for players.

    No Jedi is terrible under JKCK lead, but yes. They're trying to make us gear up the worst of the Jedi that exist, knowing that we can't put all of them under JKCK or KB.

    It's interesting to me that they are specifically pushing healers as leaders. Lumi and Barriss as raid heroes? I'm not seeing it, but okay.

    Save the 8,547 people who omi'd JKC lead for TB, I'd say JKC lead is pretty meh.

    Are CG spiteful or just have a bad sense of humor?
    I can't use Gungans in Naboo raid they took away the level 0 multiplier and replaced it with level 7 multiplier.
    Why not keep both level 0 and level 7 multiplier???
    I upgraded Gungans to 5 stars gear 11 and they are useless now, like Trench on tha bench.
    Gungans takes just as long as ships to farm.

    Please anybody where can I use Gungans 5 star gear11 NOW?!
    Level 1 multiplier=gear 12 minimum

    Nowhere does it say that there is no level 0.
    In addition it wouldn't make any sense that the post says additional effects and gives stat bonuses when there is no level 0, as you need a base on which the stat percentages add. This base is probably level 0.
