I feel Talia is bad at defense: the AI just wastes her and ruins her. But on offense she is a b......the 13% evasion will make the enemy miss often. In the game I post she evaded 4 in a row from Qui-Gon and 2 shots by this highly starred and amazingly dangerous TIE Pilot. No amount of Crit Buff or AoE could have avoided a desth escept for the evades. And Daka with high evade can last enough to stun strategically. I won't win every time but my team can gain #1 whenever some evade kicks in.
Here's Talia taking the top...maybe the first time you will see this, but wont be the last for sure. I had to use three heals in the first teo turns (proactively) to ensure I am not 3 vs 5. Enemy was Leia 7, Qui Gon 7, Labdo 7, TIE 6 (I think) and another 7* guy.
