Princess Leia didn’t strike me as a good character initially, until I met one in the arena that shot my Luke Skywalker 3 times in a turn and killed him on the first round. Granted that it doesn’t always happen, but it DID happen.

With a long cooldown of 5 turns on her second skill, she is often “forced” to use her first skill. The fact that she gets offense up and stealth doesn’t help you take her down quickly unless you got good AoE damage.

With a high critical rate, good single target damage and stealth, she is the perfect assassin. I reckon her to be much better than Luke for having same gear and star level.

Unfortunately, unless you are consistently topping the top 100 arena and getting enough gems weekly to try your “luck” at data cards, it is very hard to max her out. Because of that, she is going to be a 2 star for quite a long time. But even at 2 stars, once geared out she still hits pretty hard.

Note: She is now farmable and available in arena shipment!!


[usrlist “Campaign Map:4.5” “Arena: 5” “Galactic War:4”]

Verdict: Gear her up to max level for some good damage. Now farmable!!!
