    EMBO!

    I feel like you are playing a trick on me! Thank you!

    Dayam. Counter lead on Bounty Hunters? Nasty. Looks good.
  • Finally!!
    Im not sure if the kit really fits the Embo from the sw universe, but we have him at last! Cheers.
  • Wow, I love the new backgrounds and the animation for Kyuzo War Helmet! Hope he works as nicely as it looks like he will on paper.
  • Does he lose 50% of his max protection or his current protection on his first special? Is the ability blocked if you just have health? (I assume not)

    Does he get the foresight if the attack that damages him takes out his protection, or does he have to have no protection when he takes the hit?

    EDIT - This is regarding his unique.

    Please let this mean we're getting a Cad Bane and Zam rework too.
  • Looks like a raid toon. My birthday is in April, maybe I’ll get to use him in raids for the first time as a birthday present.

    There has been a call out in the vids showing cad bane with a new skin, so hopefully. Now I just need to be able to make a 7 toon squad. lol

    Yeah Embo! Boo marquee! Need something fresh CG.
  • Looks great, but is this yet another marquee release?
    Ooba hutar.
  • Stoked about getting another new character, but starting to feel like things are stagnant.

    It's great seeing these new characters, but it takes so long before they can really see use. 3 months till they're farmable, and even then they're being put mostly on hard nodes. Even if they went into the cantina I now have multiple characters in points that are difficult to farm.

    Even with the difficulty farming the characters, I'm starting to ask, "Why?" No new legendary events, no new Heroes Journey. The new assault battle is fun, but it's still going to take another 2 to 3 months before I can try the final tier with Bossk. So again what are we getting out of this? I like that we get new characters for playing the game, but that seems to be all the game is giving.
  • Whahooooooooooooo
    Get good and get a Revan. Ryanwhales
  • This is awesome! But, when?!?!

    If they give us a few more bounty hunters, we can field two complete teams. Bossk is definitely a great defensive leader and Embo is heavily offensive. Works well for me.

    I started using bossk right away he’s almost 5 * gear 11 and has a zeta on his lead. So even low star toons can be great without being 7*.

    These people who complain about "useless" 3* marquee characters do not know what they are talking about. Low stars do not lock them out of arena.

    Yes, more stars = better, but 3* does not mean useless. And for just a few dollars, a 4* is easy to get.

    I really like Bossk actually. Have him at Gear XI with his leader ability Zeta'd. I imagine I'll put a bunch of work into Embo as well. I don't use them for arena and don't need to. I can't do bonus tiers or Heroic raids with characters that aren't 7* though, and all these marquee characters are difficult to gear to significant levels (thinking 8 or 9 at least), and there's about a 90% chance that any of them is going to require at least one Stun Gun or Carbanti (or both). I don't mind the gear grind so much. It's the endless flow of new characters with nothing new to use them on. I've built teams for other events, so these new characters aren't really doing much except sitting around.
