Old Ben Kenobi has been reworked with two unavoidable attacks and a new special ability: “Devoted Protector” which allows him to taunt at will, making him a threat from the very start of the battle.
- Old Ben now has the Rebel category tag!
BASIC: Elegant Form
- Now grants Potency Up instead of Evasion Up
- Omega upgrade is now: “This attack can’t be Evaded and inflicts Evasion Down for 2 turns”
SPECIAL 1: Mind Tricks
- This ability can no longer be Evaded
- Omega upgrade now grants “Jedi and Rebel allies gain 3% Turn Meter for each effect Resisted” in addition to previous bonus of “+15% Turn Meter Reduction Chance”
SPECIAL 2: Devoted Protector
- New ability!
- Fully Upgraded Without Zeta: “Old Ben gains Taunt for 2 turns. All allies gain Defense Up for 2 turns.” (Cooldown 4)
- Fully Upgraded With Zeta: “Old Ben gains Taunt for 2 turns. When this Taunt expires, Old Ben gains Taunt for 1 turn. All allies gain Defense Up for 2 turns.” (Cooldown 4)
UNIQUE: If You Strike Me Down (REWORKED)
- Ability reworked, and gained a new ZETA upgrade: “+2% Turn Meter Gain, +20% Heal, +20% Protection Recovery, and the first time Old Ben is defeated all allies gain 25% Turn Meter”
- Fully upgraded, it reads: “Whenever another Jedi or Rebel ally takes damage, Old Ben gains 5% Turn Meter. The first time Old Ben is defeated, all allies gain Offense Up and Speed Up for 2 turns, recover 50% Health and 50% Protection, and gain 25% Turn Meter.”
- Now tagged as a Rebel, Old Ben fits perfectly under leads such as Jyn Erso. He is able to provide AoE Offense Down, Ability Block, and Turn Meter Removal all in one ability, Mind Tricks.
- We have changed the way his Unique, “If You Strike Me Down”, works, granting Old Ben 5% Turn Meter each time a Jedi or Rebel ally is damaged. Old Ben cannot be ignored as each strike against his allies gets him closer to ‘Mind Tricking’ you again.
- Old Ben Gains a new Special Ability, “Devoted Protector”, that grants Old Ben a Taunt for 2 turns that if dispelled or simply runs out due to its duration, grants Old Ben another Taunt for 1 turn.
