Baze Malbus gains Max Health equal to 5-20% of his Max Health. Chirrut Imwe also gains that much Max Health. General Strategy
Starting each encounter with Taunt and Retribution, Baze Malbus protects his team from harm by Taunting enemy attacks.
He can punish attackers through counter attacking and his basic has a chance to apply Speed Down to the target, weakening the enemy attackers.
Baze’s special abilities focus on removing enemy buffs. Unload dispels all buffs and deals heavy damage to those without buffs, whereas Fierce Reprisal can turn the buffs on characters against themselves by inflicting the opposite debuff.
Baze gains Turn Meter every time an enemy gains a buff, further reducing the amount of time enemies can benefit from positive effects.
Baze Malbus gains Taunt and Retribution for 1 turn at the start of each encounter, whenever an enemy is defeated, and whenever Chirrut Imwe falls below 100% Health. Baze Malbus gains 2-5% Turn Meter whenever an enemy gains a buff.
Unlike the synergy between Biggs and Wedge, which focus heavily on burst damage, Baze and Chirrut focus on team sustainability, buff/debuff controls, and occasional high damage. The Jedha partnership will greatly increase survivability of any team.
Baze fills the critical role of offensive dispeller, a position available to only non-Rebel characters in the past. While Baze’s abilities do not grant any direct buffs to other Rebel characters, he can benefit from Rebel leader abilities like Admiral Ackbar and Lando Calrissian, and synergizes well with unique abilities like Bistan’s Amped Up.
While Baze is optimized in a team with Chirrut and other Rebels, his abilities can work in any team that is looking for character that offers protection of weaker units at the start of the battle, buff controls, and ability to inflict multiple debuffs.
Where to Use PVP
Baze Malbus fills the role of an offensive dispeller that is useful in Squad Arena against teams that are reliant on Taunts and other buffs. He also provide protection against characters with early burst damage such as Biggs and Wedge. PVE
Aside from providing protection for the team, Baze will consistently remove buffs from enemies in Phase 1 and 3 of the AAT raid. With Chirrut, he will have enough heals to sustain himself, and guard the team from the AAT’s cannon blast.
Baze will be a valuable addition to any events and challenges that requires a solid Rebel team to complete.
