Given that we're seeing some really effective use of C3P0 in the HAAT and HSTR raids, and historically that has tended to end up with EA "fixing" (i.e. nerfing even though chars were doing what the text said!) Characters and their abilities and/or synergies can we please get some confirmation NOW as to whether those who invest in Ewoks and gearing of C3P0 are going to be then hit with a frustrating character nerf?? We don't want to be getting told this AFTER we've all invested in it as if it was some sudden shock to the devs in a couple months time!
There's a video on p3 that says otherwise and that will be enough to nerf it.
Whether you can do it or not is irrelevant. It's possible to solo P3 of the Sith raid with C3P0 and there's video evidence of people doing just that.
It’s not as easy. You need lots of potency. But I had a shardmate try it. He messed up the first topple (my fault, not his, my instructions) and still did 22 million damage.
Instead of fixing their shiny new Traya, they dumped on Acolyte instead.
They'll wreck zFinn lead ability instead of admitting they didn't test C-3PO enough. Which will cause more issues across the board by affecting all the other modes where zFinn works just fine.
Give her stacking tenacity while toppled and it won't be an infinite loop anymore. Easy day. And no other current raid team really focuses on debuffs while Traya is toppled, so there would be minimal collateral damage. That's a choice, not an error. It's not going to change.
That said, C-3PO is human-cyborg relations. He's not primarily focused on interacting with other droids. Also, he has pretty much every possible synergy with the only viable droid leader, JTR.
Yeah, that's exactly the kind of half a55ed approach I'm worried about, especially since I only just Zeta'd my Finn in readiness for next JTR event.
It's not as if this is some sneak approach that people uncovered after weeks or months of trying stuff, we're 3 days into his existence! So if they did test things before release they should come out and say "it's fine, no changes/nerfs will occur" OR ASAP come out and say "we f'ed up, didn't test properly, and X will be changing in the next update" so people can decide whether to invests time & resources into chars before it's too late
That means he is designed as an intermediary between humans and droids, he kinda should be able to give then translation too. That is literally why Owen bought him in the first place.
C3P0 has/had an entire network of Droid spies for the Resistance. The storyline is mostly comic based so it's not likely we'll ever see it utilized in game. Which is unfortunate.
Also, the change to Finn is likely to just limit the expose bonuses to those that were applied by Resistance allies, which would leave the team functionally unchanged in PvE and in GA/TW.
Finally? It sounds like you are implying that Finn should be nerfed, which is just absurd. No character should be nerfed if their abilities are working as they are described, especially when that ability has existed for well over a year without causing problems.
But if they nerf it, we need to know so we don't waste a zeta. And yes, I know that zfinn can be good in other areas so it's not a complete waste. And with 3PO making rebels expose, it may have even more use in tw/ga. But depending on how they change things, that may change. If they make it only resistance allys expose, then the zeta is useless to me since I don't have enough resistance to run a 2nd team. But if you can throw zfinn, 3PO, and a trio of b team rebels is for a good team, then the zeta isn't wasted.
@CG_SBCrumb can we get some info on this issue sooner rather than later?
They will try to get as much panic farming as they can before they nerf the thing everyone panic farmed for. Duh.
