    Starkiller reqs required at R5 to participate?! Even JKL wasn't THAT bad!

    No Smuggler tag? Boo.

    Paywall to access part of the marquee event? Double boo.

    Needed more toons though (hence, more gear and relic scraps)

    More total gear, maybe, but you’d need no Flawed signal data and no Aurodiums.

    Vandor chewy is well prepared for this guy.

    Does the additional prepared bonus stack? Does it go away when they are no longer prepared?

    Huh, reading this under the BAM lead if you passed han and chewie prepared there should be TM of 4% per attack

    What do you mean by "passed Han and Chewie prepared"?

    Fifth would be Young Lando? Young Han would also work, I guess, though it doesn't seem like he gains/passes prepared as easily.

    How can you dispell something for 2 turns?

    By "passed Han and Chewie prepared", they meant granting Prepared to Han/Chewie.

    So just have them on the squad? Unless I missed a part of the kit that explicitly grants prepared.

    BAM, Dash, han, chewie and young han would be the team I would say, young han can pass prepared to anyone after a successful attack and then han and chewie should be passing 12% tm per attack.

    Other scoundrels like Young Lando or Young Han can grant Prepared to target allies.

    Thanks guys! That clears it up.

    I hope it's just an oversight that he doesn't have the Smuggler tag. It'd be ridiculous for him not to have it, both for mechanics reasons and lore reasons.

    I think it means it dazes for 2 turns.

    Good sign that I need sleep.
    Or a serious cognitive reevaluation.

    Is the omicron on his lead really good enough for Dash lead to be better than Qira in GAC?
    3v3 FTW

    Omicrons are likely going to be a hot commodity. And his leader ability looks pretty underwhelming overall. Especially if the prepared bonuses don't stack.

    This seems like a good kit, and another lead for smugglers. Though the paywall on the Marquee event isn’t cool. And also, why doesn’t Dash have the Smuggler tag?
    I've found this whole experience to be very enlightening.

    Thank you for evaluating. Your feedback is appreciated.

    I don't think there is a paywall on the 4 marquee events, just the Starkiller Legacy/Legends permanent one?

    So I know I'm not asking anything new but genuinely, why no smuggler tag? I think that's how every single piece of media has described him. Like even his action figure packaging did. His squad is entirely smugglers, it seems super weird to not include it.

    Dash lead, L3, Vandor Chewie, Young Han and Qi'Ra will be very interesting. Vandir chewie will be tough as a whole coffin with that extra max health from the unique and lead prepared bonus.

    Dash's basic and his AoE are absolute mobstrous TM trains with his unique. 3 hits on 5 enemies that cant be evaded, thats 15 hits aka 30% turnmeter which should not be neglected.

    Qi'ra getting extra speed will help her greatly. Combined with her unique, thanks to Dash, she will go haywire with all that TM from multi attacks.

    BUT this team is evidently zeta heavy. You will at the very least need young han and vandor zetas. And Vandor should be as high relic as possible for all the health.

    This team will definetly see improvement, even if it still wont even scratch top teams.

    If you want to engage the final tier that gives you omnicron you need Dash at 5 stars and marquee event gives him 3 stars. So you need to buy (money or crystals) the shards missing with packs, as it may (farming cadence is not out yet) not be farmable when the marquee event will be online.

    Not to mention you only got a month if you want to unlock starkiller on release (assuming he is powerful enough to warrant it) and you need Relic 5 in that month.

    Thats a worse short-notice marquee relic requirement than JML was, and he had both MM and Chewpio needed roughly 2-3 months post release. And starkiller needs 4 of those.

    But the event will be permament.

    Yeah, hence the remark that the deadline assumes Starkiller warrants it.

    No smuggler tag….even though his best team comp is smugglers and he’s a smuggler in lore….lol ok….

    Under Dash's Unique:
    "Even Scoundrels who do not interact with the Prepared mechanic will receive Prepared and gain the bonuses Dash gives them based on their Role."

    So, all Scoundrels could get Prepared .. Interesting...

    Marquees aren't a big deal after 3 months

    Event is always available, and after 3 months, marquees are just like any other pre-req in this game

    This is a very player friendly release imo,

    At least there is no GET gate for newer players, they can easily get Starkiller by marquee farming once they are all farmable

    Starkiller isn't a GL so he won't be dominating the meta anytime either
