FINAL TEXT: Deal Physical damage to all enemies. Deal damage an additional time (up to 5 additional times) for each enemy that has been defeated during the battle. Threepio & Chewie gain 10% Offense (stacking) until the end of battle whenever this ability defeats an enemy.

Unique 1: I Must Tell The Others

FINAL TEXT: If the allied Leader is a Rebel, Threepio & Chewie gain 40% of the Leader's Max Health, Max Protection, Offense, Defense, Potency, and Tenacity at the start of the first encounter, and Rebel allies gain half that amount. Rebel allies have +15% Critical Avoidance.

Whenever another Rebel ally uses an ability, Threepio & Chewie are called to assist, dealing 30% less damage (limit once per turn). If they were defeated, Threepio & Chewie are revived with 50% Health and Protection whenever another Rebel ally is revived.

While enemies are Blinded, they have -50% Tenacity and can't attack out of turn

    That unique is so good

    What does it mean by the start of the first encounter?

    On wave 2 to wave 4 of PvE events like Raids and LS TB they don’t gain those bonuses anymore?

    Can’t wait Luke and Hoda so that we can eventually have a backpack squad later on

    They keep it and probably can’t gain it more then once. I think they mean it won’t stack.

    I did I'm guessing this is the start of the Wookie Faction. I'm hoping that we get Tarful as Leader of the Wookies

    Does this change any requirements going forward in the Jedi Knight Luke event seeing as the character was used in the event?

    If that's what they meant, then why didn't they just say "at the start of battle"?

    The wookie tag is in the image, but not in the kit description, so either that was a mistake or they're being sneaky...

    They worded it really weird, but at least if it's for LS Geo TB you only need the ability for one wave anyways :/

    @CG_SBCrumb I'm sure this was just a simple oversight, right?

    How many chewys and hans do we need? Out of the entire SWU, this is what you came up with? Smh.

    That unique revive mechanic is going to synergize so well with Cara, but it might also be a use for SRP. Something like Old-Ben lead, Cara, SRP, and then Threepio and Chewie will be nuts on the revives. Probably either a second cleanse or somebody to spread buffs for the 5th slot to make sure the revives keep happening. Or perhaps Fulcrum Ahsoka.

    I guess we know why Jedi Knight Luke isn’t a Rebel (well from a game balance view). Backc3 would get the % of his base stats...

    Do they share the 3PO synergy that R2 has with regular 3PO?

    It would be so cool if they did.

    Probably not, since it was a provided character, and not one of the direct requirements.

    Yeah yeah CG, we get it, we need to bring him to R7 to actually benefit from him. Don't worry, this won't convince me to throw 400 in the bin to max his stars.

    I’m not spending a dime on this.

    Ok, we got it. You don't like the char added to the game. No one is forcing you to get him. And yes, there were actually a lot of people who said they'd find it funny if they added the Chewie/3PO to the game after playing the JKL event. And don't worry, CG will add more chars to the game.
