Thoughts

The Jedi Knight Guardian is actually quite disappointing. She offers not much offense and doesn’t provide any utility on the defense side. Since she gets self defense buff and lacks damage, nobody is going to attack her at all.

She does offer offense down and AoE ability block, but without a taunt to help her soak up damage, Poe Dameron and Chewbacca are much better here.

She is also quite slow as well, so honestly, you are better off using a character with AoE defense up like Ima-Gun Di. He is much harder to farm though.

Rating

Campaign Map:2.5 Stars (2.5 / 5)
Arena:2.5 Stars (2.5 / 5)
Galactic War:2 Stars (2 / 5)

Verdict: Do not level her at all. It’s a waste of your time.
