Base and Max Stats
|Special Critical Rate||0||15|
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.
[usrlist “Campaign Map:4” “Arena: 3.5” “Galactic War:3.5”]
Verdict: Max Her if you want to run a night sister team.
