Update: With the emergence of Master Yoda, Rey is a terror and is capable of one shotting characters and deal over 10k damage per hit.

Rey is very fast, so she is able to attack first in battle unless you run across a Count Dooku or Darth Sidious.

Rey thrives on positive effects. The moment she gets a buff, she gets offense up and raw +25% offense. Due to Sidious moving ahead of her in the arena, her power gets diminished due to damage over time debuff. Her damage is  good, but gets stifled by the previous reason.

Due to that, most people prefer a raw damage character like Sidious or Luminara, who provides a heal and hits hard.

Foresight allows Rey to survive a few more turns to dish out damage. Flurry of blows hits hard, especially when the extra hits land!

She also has low health, so she can easily be dealt with by any sort of burst damage. Be careful and bring healers to make sure she stays healthy.


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

Verdict: Gear her well, but she will be hard to star up.
