After playing for about a month, I think I can safely say no other character has single-handedly improved my starting lineup more than Old Daka. I got her a couple weeks ago simply because I thought I needed a healer on my DS team.
Now, I start her in my Arena and GW team every time, and she seems to work really well with basically anyone. Here's why I like her:
- She's actually really fast.
- Her stun hits more often than you think. And it's an amazing ability.
- Here revive happens more often than you think.
- She's tough to kill.
- She's incredibly easy to farm (cantina shipments).
I can't think of another character that offers even close to that diverse a set of positive traits. Qui Gon maybe, but he's impossible to obtain.
Bottom line is, if you're on the fence about her or looking for a character that might jazz up your lineup, some random dude on the forums strongly approves of Old Daka.
