Plo Koon is a great Jedi tank that brings utility to the team. He is able to greatly reduce the damage taken for all allies due to his 2 AoE abilities. The ability to give AoE defense buff to your team and also the AoE attack debuff to the enemy team means you will take very little damage for 2 turns.

The random positive effect removal also comes in handy sometimes, especially against someone like Rey. He is also a great counter against stealth units. So, if someone runs Princess Leia, Teebo or Nute Gunray, he will be able remove their stealth advantage.

For a tank, his health pool is on the lower end but makes up for high armor and resistance. If you don’t want to use Old Ben, Plo Koon will be a viable replacement as a support tank.


[usrlist “Campaign Map:3” “Arena:3” “Galactic War:3”]

Verdict: An okay member. Old Ben is better.
