Count Dooku is a pretty OP character in my opinion. He is able to deal damage whenever he is attacked(unless disabled). This means he will never be useless in a team fight. He is able to stun/disable character with ease, especially Jedis. Running a Jedi team is risky against a very high level Count Dooku. He will be a tough nut to crack especially with good evasion and a strong healer on the opposing team.

When he goes on a rampage and moves twice in a turn, he deals a lot of damage over time since he is very speedy as well. He would be a good addition to any squad that needs and offensive character.

The only downside is that you are only able to farm an average of 2 shards a day, making it very hard to 7 star him.

Note: He is now available in Squad Cantina 6G!


[usrlist “Campaign Map:4.5” “Arena: 4.5” “Galactic War:4.5”]

Verdict: Upgrade all the way, even if it takes forever.
