FINAL TEXT: Deal Special damage to target enemy and Stun them for 2 turns. If Resistance Hero Poe is Inspired, dispel all buffs on them and inflict Buff Immunity for 2 turns. This ability can't be evaded.

Unique 1: Spark of Resistance

FINAL TEXT: (ZETA) If all of Resistance Hero Poe's allies are Light Side, enemies lose 5% Protection whenever they lose a debuff. When Inspired allies deal damage to an enemy, they also deal bonus damage equal to 10% of the target's Max Health, which can't be evaded. If an enemy critically hits an Inspired ally, all buffs are dispelled from that enemy at the end of the turn.

If Resistance Hero Poe is Inspired when he uses a Special ability during his turn, he can Inspire another target Resistance ally.

  • hey @CG_SBCrumb could you clarify the wording on vulnerable? Right now it states "Vulnerable will not allow a unit to critically hit an enemy if a unit has Critical Hit Immunity" but that reads as if the attacking unit can't crit if the attacking unit has critical hit immunity. Is this correct, or does it just mean that if an enemy has vulnerable and critical hit immunity, critical hit immunity has priority?

    So just to confirm - is the 5% protection here is current protection, not max protection, so it does nothing when an enemy without protection loses a debuff, right? Or is it max protection?

    crit immunity has priority
  • @CG_SBCrumb could you change the yellow letters of Vulnerable? Its a little hard to read on the white background.

  • They could have made it a bit more obvious that they changed RHFinn's kit. I spent way too long wondering how RHPoe could possibly gain Inspired.
  • This looks like an obvious counter to Sith Empire when combined with RHF and whatever the new Rey looks like - as all those stacks of Ferocity drop off, so will the protection.
  • GK synergy again? Nice.

    Critical hit immunity has priority over Vunerable. The attacking unit won't critical if the target has Crit Immunity even if the target has Vunerable as well

    Yes, it's referring to current Protection. In regards to the 5% loss when they have no Protection, then that part of the kit doesn't do anything additional.
  • THE DEAD SPEAK!

    Oof. I hope Supreme Leader Kylo is absolutely amazing to make up for Poe showing up my boy KRU like this.

  • Why is GK a synergy? He literally was from a different era, not resistance and never met any of the other 4. Can we get another LS tank instead of using GK in 5 different squads? Can we just get a 2nd GK?

    How does Poe’s Blaster Bravado dispell all debuffs as stated in the developer insights? Maybe I can’t read?

    Because he grants Crit Immunity and crits dispel Inspired, probably.

    There's always at least one "recommended synergy" in kit reveals that everyone immediately knows doesn't make any practical sense.

    Thanks for editing the DI @CG_SBCrumb
  • So what I'm inferring from this is that Jedi Rey will be like GK and be able to spread Inspired to her teammates

  • why did u made synergy with General Kenobi? - when Kenobi was old Poe wasnt even born - they never met and they have no connection 1 with eachother
  • How does Poe get inspired?
  • also is stupid that he doest have synergy with bb8 - witch is his partner all time - look at Star Wars Resistance series
  • How does Poe get inspired?

    Poe gets inspired from the New Finn’s 1st special if you target poe.
  • Why show a gif of him killing someone with his Flinching Shot basic instead of applying the debuff? We all know you're "he's so powerful he kills in 1 shot" gifs are a totally false impression
  • Oh wow you guys are alive! Good to know

    He will make an excellent addition to the characters at the bottom of the roster.
