    He lowers others, and so does the Rancor

    From JMK's unique:
    When another Light Side ally targets Jedi Master Kenobi with an ability, dispel all debuffs on him and he gains Mastery (stacking) equal to 10% of their current Mastery for the rest of the encounter

    So if I have a toon with negative mastery through either SLKR siphon or Rancor, does he lose mastery?

    My understanding is that if JKL is at -50 mastery, and does Jedi's Will and targets JMK, he will lose 5 mastery

    This. Kenobi gets current mastery from his allies based on their mastery and he gives allies mastery based on his current mastery. you can reduce his allies' mastery, and if they are negative, do they reduce kenobi's mastery by a % of the negative mastery or do they just give 0 mastery?

    Also, JMK's ultimate doubles or (ult_charge% of) the current mastery, so depending on the answer, you might not want to do JMK's ultimate in rancor raid after a few turns

    Yeah, I'll see what the whales figure out from experiments in raids. There's obviously some line where you can afford to wait in order to boost his damage as much as possible.

  • Are you telling me that the ultimate ability seriously shows the allies out of order in their silhouettes, and it has a silhouette for every charter? talk about some epic camera shots!

    This seems no different than the Tech event where the camera panned across your characters. Silhouettes don't really require more character data. The camera is probably just set to view them head on, Kenobi does the animation while the rest of the models are in normal resting pose, and then the light source is set behind everyone with another spotlight just for Kenobi.
  • I feel like the fact that he is galactic republic opens so much possibilities with Padme lead and 3po and r2 or ki adi Mundi I just have a feeling that padme lead is going to be better than gl Kenobi lead with courage and the ideal team will be padme l Gl Kenobi CAT Anikan/c3p0/general Kenobi/ r2d2/ki add Mundi/ahsoka tano the last 2 slots are really up to debate but I think thats gonna be a core trio for squad arena.

    JMK mastery boost only works if the toon has mastery greater than 0. So no it will not reduce his mastery.

    Would be cool if it increased Mastery by 10% of the absolute value, so that if you're at -50% Mastery you're mitigating that penalty by 5%.

    Very disappointing that they didn't take this opportunity to rework Mace and his awful kit. He could be great. But instead we get another useless g13 character.

    I call this a "Relic tax"; it's needed to up the gear cost of a GL and it makes them less op in GAC. You want an uber powerful character ? Fine, but get a few awful ones first and put enough relic on them so they're in your top 80.
  • For turn meter manipulation, does this mean CATs shion, rexs form up and any other beneficial turn meter gain/swaps won't work under JMK?

    I assume no TM gain, and no TM removal. But TM swap will work I guess (same as with padme). It can also mean that TM swap is also not possible
  • Bonus Turns and TM Swap effects will work as normal. TM manipulation is just % TM gain or % TM loss, so those wouldn’t work under (or against) JMK Lead.

    It’s not the same wording as padme.

    Padme: can’t lose or gain tm
    Ken: immune to tm manipulation

    So the question is does TM swap work or not. If it does, it's worded differently, but it works the same. If it doesn't, there is the difference
  • Was it always like that or did it change, when you go over 2K energy you can’t buy anymore energy to stockpile?

    Always like that. You can still gain energy by other means (bonus energy, packs…)

    Yea, I just didn’t know about the purchasing part, o well, gain what I can till JMK event.
  • Padawan ahsoka would work well here too? All the out of turn synergy?

    Also clarification on his lead disabling turn meter manipulation... This means enemies and allies cannot gain or lose turn meter BUT can still gain bonus turns? Correct?

    That’s what I assume the Mars Rovers are doing at this very moment.

    I just realised something watching Anhald stream: Healing immunity from "I will do what i must" can't be dispelled, so when JKR wants to proc "savior"(healing 100% and dispelling all debuffs), Healing immunity stays there and he can't recover health. There, Savior doesn't work. If I understand this correctly, that's nasty. Are there other healing immunity that can't be dispell around there ?

    Jedi Training Rey also has an undispellable Healing Immunity.
