Leader: Backroom Subterfuge
FINAL TEXT: Separatist allies have +15% Speed and Potency for each enemy with Extortion. While Nute Gunray is alive, each enemy that ends their turn with Extortion dispels their own buffs and grants Extortion to another random enemy that doesn't have it.


Unique: Viceroy's Reach
FINAL TEXT: (ZETA) Whenever a Separatist ally inflicts a debuff, they also deal 5% Max Health damage to that enemy, which can't be evaded, and enemies with Extortion have -30% Speed and Offense.

The first time Nute Gunray is defeated, he is revived with 100% Health and Turn Meter. Every time Nute Gunray is revived, he Stealths for 2 turns.

  • Interesting. Very interesting.
  • Wow. This is better than expected.
  • Strange. His Unique says "The first time Nute Gunray is defeated, he is revived with 100% Health and Turn Meter. Every time Nute Gunray is revived, he Stealths for 2 turns."

    Does this mean he can be revived more than once?
  • As long as Nute cannot defeat JKA, otherwise it goes against canon lol

    So many teams could kill Nute instantly with no pretaunt around. the revive is Probably just there to balance the game.

    I was thinking more along the lines of an all separatist squad. I think it's just strange wording.
  • I've got only one question Now, Do we call him Nute Talzin or Mother Gunray ?

    I think it's more like Nute Zombie after the first death.

    There's several character that could revive him, such as Daka or Ewok Elder. I guess this is to cover such cases.

    Got a feeling that the AI will royally screw up when playing against Nute, and possibly when playing as Nute as well. The Extortion mechanic begs for true PvP.
    Revive the stores, the game needs it.

    It would be so cool to have these artworks as the ingame characters portraits. :)
  • How on earth have I never noticed Nute is a Duros until now? 🤦🏻‍♂️

    Now that’s an interesting kit... I don’t know if it works in practice but it really seems unique.

  • So should we start gearing him for the next time the Padme Amigdalitis event comes? What is the best team without B1 and droideka now for that event?
  • Hmm isk if I’m glad or sad no one works with geos yet.

    Ugh can we please stop getting new status effects for every new rework or release. Its getting out of hand and becoming overly complicated to anyone who isnt a lawyer. Whats wrong with getting speed up or crit damage up?

    Anyone else read this as "this is getting out of hand" in their heads?
