Resistance Trooper vs Luke

So, I've had Resistance Trooper since the beginning and he has been fantastic. He hits hard, crits a ton and in general has been a key team member. But I figured for long term, I should switch to Luke. They seem to fill similar roles in the team. So I finally unlocked Luke, and ranked him up. But overall, I'm pretty unimpressed with Luke. On the same team, similar level and gear level, Resistance trooper hits about 1.5x to 2x the damage of Luke on both normal and special attacks. I think most of it is that Luke never seems to crit, despite having a +30% chance from his passive skill.

Does anyone have these two characters to compare and have a different perspective?

  • Interesting you say this, I have a 2* Resistance trooper and just unlocked Luke so I'm curious on who I should continue to level. I originally though Luke but after reading this I am tempted to focus on Resistance trooper. Any other input from people who have used these guys would be much appreciated.
  • Finn > FOTP Luke & Resistance Trooper
  • I still think Luke .. Resistance trooper is a bit of a glass cannon. Luke also crits better at a higher level, he crits 3k+ for me (lvl 55, gear 7, 5 star). Hope this helps!

    3* Resistance Trooper, Level 52, Gear VI

    3* Luke, Level 53, Gear V

    Luke's default attack hits for ~800, Resistance Trooper 1400. Luke's default attack crit is ~1200, Resistance Trooper 2100. So, Luke is about 60% damage. Same for Special Attack; Luke's Crit and non-Crit values are about 60% of Resistance Trooper. They have approx the same health (6 bars).

    No. Definitely not. Ahsoka is also a great team member, but definitely doesn't hit as hard as Luke. But she's a lifesaver sometimes with her chance at self-heals and group-heals. Plus when my leader is Luminara, she gets the Jedi bonus. I would definitely go after Ashoka, but not as a replacement for Luke/Resistance Trooper.

  • Luke is tankier than RT, and his damage scales better once you get both to higher levels. Luke gets better returns from promoting, too, IIRC.

    I have 7* Luke and he hits hard and has decent hp. He's definitely a good hero and can shine in crit lineups. That being said I'm already looking for his replacement as I'd rather have a great hero then a good one.
  • Thanks all for the replies it is much appreciated! I just pulled a 4* Barris in a bronzium!!!!! :dizzy:
