Deal Special damage to target enemy and inflict Armor Shred until the end of the encounter. If allies were Light Side at the start of battle, dispel all buffs from all enemies and deal true damage again to all enemies. All allies gain 5% Turn Meter (max 25%) for each enemy damaged by this ability.

This attack can't be evaded.

Final Text:

At the start of battle, if all of Ben Solo's allies were Light Side and there is any version of Rey in the allied Leader slot, Ben Solo gains 15% Max Health and 10 Speed for each Light Side ally (excluding summons). Ben Solo ignores taunt effects during his turn.

While in Grand Arenas: Ben Solo's attacks ignore Protection.

If all allies were Light Side at the start of battle and there is any version of Rey in the allied Leader slot, all allies gain Instant Defeat Immunity for 1 turn at the start of each encounter, which can't be copied, dispelled, or prevented. While Ben Solo is active, Rey can't be defeated. Ben Solo can't be defeated while Rey is above 50% health.

While in Grand Arenas, if Galactic Legend Rey is in the allied Leader slot: If the enemy in the Leader slot begins their turn with Ben Solo defeated and Ben still has an active ally, he revives with 51% Health and all allies gain Instant Defeat Immunity for the rest of the encounter, which can't be copied, dispelled, or prevented.

    AWWW snap!!!

    Think you misspelled his name ;)
    We needed Cobb Vanth shards for Krayt Dragon raid, Endor Gear Luke shards for Speeder Bike raid and Anakin Skywalker shards for Battle for Naboo raid?

    We haven't had a Light Side Conquest Character since Commander Ahsoka Tano, and that was in May of 2021

    Yes - how long now before CAT / Maul get Omicrons.

    What is this joke... running out of character ideas?

    … dang it I was enjoying my semi-retirement but this looks cool.

    Oh right, I don’t have Rey. Carry on!

    Will the revive be affected by GAS lead or Jango/Boba kill? or will he not revive like normal?

    These attack animations look like they were made by 2 dudes in a basement

    Ok he seems interesting. The animations are so lazy though.

    Any plans to make Omicrons more available? I'm super excited for Ben but with every new character having an Omi-level ability and Conquest/JG characters requiring three it's a lot. I've spent exactly 20 and I only have 98 on hand.

    In the force dyad unique, does the Rey that can't be defeated include all versions of Rey, just GL Rey, or just the Rey in the lead slot mentioned earlier in the paragraph?

    I would think just GL Rey (because that is her whole name in game), except that in the following omicron paragraph, it is spelled out as specifically GL Rey there, casting doubt on the meaning in the previous paragraph.

    Any Rey in the lead slot. Dev Insight post has it written more clearly:
    "While Ben Solo is alive, any version of Rey in the Leader spot can't be defeated. Ben Solo can't be defeated while Rey is above 50% health"

    His kit looks like its specifically made to counter JMK with the turn 1 instant defeats to make CAT opening useless and the protection ignore.

    His animations are very lazy tho. Aside from his shrug on his 2nd special, his animations are pretty **** basic and reused.

    If you need to make a character that shuts down another's mechanic this blatantly, it means the character this is supposed to counter is too broken but you outright refuse to nerf them. Bias this obvious is very insulting.

    It's what 50R-T has. It means things that instantly defeat enemies don't work on them (like Nihilus' "Annihilate", Commander Ahsoka Tano's "Force Leap", and Grand Inquisitor's "Ready to Die".

    Interesting kit. Just a quick point of clarification... for his ability Family Legacy, does it mean to say, "If all allies were Light Side at the start of battle..."??

    Good thing the ai will make sure Rey goes under 50% health on her own.

    A bunch of bad guys just hanging around looking pretty waiting for the designated next in line to do a move. Sounds like the movies to me 😀
