Asajj Ventress is the badass villian in the series. She is my favorite nightsister out of all of them. Let’s look at what this vicious character has to offer to your team.

Type: Nightsister, Support

Side: Dark

Synergy: Offense, AoE Damage, Cleanse, Cooldown Reset, Self Heal, Stun, Offense

How to Get[Shards]: Data Cards, Arena Shipments

Pros Cons
Great AoE dispel against enemy buffers + self heal  Very slow if she is not a leader
Gains offense when someone dies Leader skill only works best with a nightsister team
Can stun an enemy  Low resistance
AoE damage with chance to reset cooldown  Has 5 skills – so more resources to max her skill

Thoughts

Asajj Ventress is great at disabling enemy buffs and self heal works wonders in the arena. Her greatest asset is the ability to disarm enemies, reset her own cooldown on killing blows and turn the tides in her favor.

Her damage is decent and with 3 active skills + a unique, she is one of the few characters with 5 skills. She is best when teaming up with night sisters, with her as the leader. A recommended night sister team is Asajj(Leader), Luminara Unduli, Old Daka, Talia, Nightsister Initiate.

Although her stun doesn’t have a high percent chance, 1 in 3 hits is good still decent. Combined with Old Daka, you will be able to stun enemies frequently, making it a deadly combo.

The biggest downside is her speed. She is the SLOWEST character in the game if she is not a leader. If you like speed, then you are forced to use her as a leader and build a nighsister team. That isn’t a bad choice, but most new players won’t have the luxury to build a niche team early on.

Rating

Campaign Map:4 Stars (4 / 5)
Arena: 3.5 Stars ( 3.5 / 5)
Galactic War:3.5 Stars (3.5 / 5)

Verdict: Max Her if you want to run a night sister team.
