Changes are colored in green.
Basic Attack – Disruptor Blast:
Deal Physical damage to target enemy with a 40-70% chance (Based on Ability Level) to inflict Defense Down for 2-3 turns (Based on Ability Level). At max level, if the target was already debuffed, ignore their Protection.
Special Attack – Crimson Barrage:
Deal Physical damage to all enemies with a 40-70% chance (Based on Ability Level) to inflict Offense Down for 1-2 turns (Based on Ability Level). This attack ignores Protection. At max level, gain Protection Up equal to 5% for each debuffed enemy for 2 turns. (Cooldown 3)
Unique Ability – Vaiken’s Legacy:
Sith Trooper has +100% Defense. Whenever a Sith ally uses a Special ability or falls below 50% Health, Sith Trooper gains Defense Up for 2 turns. If he already had Defense Up, he gains Taunt for 2 turns. If he already had Taunt, he gains Retribution for 2 turns. Sith Trooper gains Defense Up and Taunt for 2 turns at the start of each encounter.
Sith Trooper becomes one of the staunchest tanks in the game when modding him focusing on Protection and Defense as primary and secondary stats.
Try using Sith Trooper in teams with more than three Sith in order to reliably trigger Taunt and Retribution.
Placing Sith Trooper in a Darth Nihilus lead team greatly increases his survivability versus most teams because of the Max Health increase and Health Steal, but watch out when against those that inflict many expose effects!
When paired with Sith Assassin’s ability to also conditionally ignore protection, these two open up opportunities for Savage Opress to one-shot an opponent under 50% life… and still at 100% protection
. Where to Use
Sith Trooper is a great addition to any Sith heavy team that needs a reliable taunt with some staying power.
Try Sith Trooper under a Darth Nihilus lead in Galatic War, the high health steal and health totals make for a team that sticks around through multiple nodes without many casualties.
