    Is Ferocity considered a debuff?

    Judging from the development insight, it is.
    Follow up question: Can it be resisted? That would be super weird...
    Revive the stores, the game needs it.
  • When Darth Revan's Health falls below 50%, it is equalized with the other healthiest ally.

    Is this every single time it happens, or just the first time?

  • From the Development Insight:

    Force Storm reads as a simple ability, but the debuff that Revan puts on a team is more powerful than you may think. Darth Revan applies five Ferocity debuffs to all allies, which gives them Offense and Potency, but don’t forget the Crit Chance and 15 more Speed per debuff due to Darth Revan’s Leader ability.

    I'm into it. The lack of synergy with the regular Sith tag is a bit disappointing - I had really hoped to use Palpatine and Sion with him. But while it's clearly mega-OP, the focus on anti-Jedi abilities makes me think that some other squad (CLS? Traya? GRIEVOUS, EVEN?) will have a shot against him. The lack of an inherent massive speed boost from the start, like JKR has, suggests that a very fast team would have a chance to subvert him before the engine gets rolling.

    One thing I am curious on: on his lead, does the enemy have to go below 50% and stay there? Or just get below 50% at any point during the turn? If it's the former I feel like mechanics like Savior or Vandor Chewie's zeta will be able to avoid it, at least a bit.
  • How does the gaining ferocity at the start of the turn interact with traya's cleanse at the start of the turn?

    CLS is shut down with the anti-assist clause. Some unfortunate collateral damage...

    This... actually seems somewhat balanced. Somehow. It seems to be a direct counter to the Jedi Revan teams... and that alone. The Ferocity Debuff is a very interesting way to counteract what could happen, and he seems to be quite reliant on either Badstilla or HK to help him out in the long run.
    Of course, I could just be blinded by not having 50000 paragraphs of text like with 3PO or Jedi Revan, and we still have to wait to see this in action, but so far if he manages to keep Jedi Revan and Jedi Revan alone in check, we could be in for some good stuff in the upcoming Meta
    I'm not happy that the poor Tuskens were on the receiving end of one of his attacks but the fact they survived is something

  • @CG_SBCrumb -- how does fear interact with Traya's unique -- if Traya is inflicted with fear, does she miss her next turn, or does her unique kick in first, cleansing fear?

    The anti-assist clause is only when targeting Darth Revan. Between that and the fact that he equalizes health with other allies, pretty clear that you'll have to go after his supporting cast first and finish him off at the end.

    No, you can't resist your own effects.

    Holy cow. Complicated. Fun. Scary.
  • Seems like you can plague them and turn them into super speed suicide machines , very low tenacity and I can't find a healer or ability to that effect in the sith empire tag so you never know he might have counters lol

    He looks great and great artwork as usual! AOE shock that prevents TM gain plus all of the other debuffs are going to be bad news. Might be enough to make Maurader viable. 25 stacks of Feroicty...

    Question: When his fears expire how do they work with Fastilla? Does expiring fears apply all of the debuffs in Fastilla's kit or do those just happen for her 2 fears?
  • @CG_SBCrumb Thanks for the artworks! Was about to ask for to use it as a new wallpaper :)
  • My favorite part is that even if it isn't balanced enough to allow diversity (it looks like it is, it's quite unique), the mirror matches wouldn't be too annoying or bad and would lead to some very fun gameplay.

    Changes in Green

    Unique 3: Force Bond

    FINAL TEXT: If Darth Revan is in the leader slot: Bastila and Darth Revan have +70% Max Health and +70% Health Steal, Darth Revan also recovers Protection from Corrupted Battle Meditation, and enemies inflicted with Corrupted Battle Meditation can't inflict debuffs on enemies when they use an ability (excludes Raid Bosses).

    If Jedi Knight Revan is on the enemy squad: Bastila gains Advantage and Foresight for one turn at the start of Jedi Knight Revan's turns.

    It won't block them all but it makes it harder to debuff the squad

  • Cool some more pay to win to follow the JKR pay to win meta. Super fun and balanced.
  • I think I'll just stop with the PVP now. Never really liked it anyway, and now this.

    Does noone wonder how the sith trooper, who has always relied on his insane defense, fit into the picture? ô.o

    Can't open the game right now. Any toons that get benefits from a lot of debuffs on the field? Maurader for sure. Who else? Maurader might be a good counter toon, if he gets a chance to move. Anyone else?
  • Might be alone but the unbeatable kits just aren’t fun. It’s pushing me away.
