What is the best basic in the game?
By - TheSamurai
Hounds Tooth basic cleanses itself and the best way to beat it is by debuffs, so that's pretty good.
My favourite is Jango. Can hit twice and hits hard. Simple.
I was also thinking Hound’s Tooth might be pretty good. The self cleanse plus recovery is pretty strong.
Shak-ti, dispels buffs on target enemy and gives clone troopers offense up
Not just clones, all allies gain it if they didn't already have it.
Hands down best basic
altough being fair Hernández other 2 abilities are quite good and run o short cooldowns
Jedi Anakin cause he applies both healing and buff Immunity.
Has everyone forgot about DR?
This is the way.
I like Raid Han's basic, but it's probably best coupled with his unique so I don't know if it qualifies.
Same goes for General Skywalker basic ability.
TBH I don't have him yet so I'm not really familiar with his kit 😅
He requires a zeta for his basic ability. I don't have him yet either.
GAS. His double basic is just pure devastation
CLS would be my choice, fairly consistent on the debuffs and ends up stunning often when he counters. He is not my favorite toon by any means but his basic is all around great.
Ahsoka’s is very nice. It has a buff dispel and a cleanse on both herself and another ally.
Yeah. Constant assists that dispel. Pretty effin’ useful
Lol no. Not even close.
Probably one of the best is SLKR but that's kind of an unfair comparison to all of the "normal" characters.
Second could be Vet Han. Hit, 50% chance to hit again, doubled chance if target was debuffed. If hits again, applies Stagger to the target for two turns. Great way to slow down a debuffed enemy.
Ahsoka 100%. Unavoidable buff clear, debuff clear for herself and another Ally on crit. And heal when with 501st. No contest.
I think the obvious one is GAS because it ignores defense and he immediately attacks again, reduces his cooldowns, etc.
The next best I think is Lacerate for DR. Special damage + Buff immunity on the target and the leader or just hit the leader and reduce your cooldowns. I like that it’s flexible and depending on where I’m at in a match it can have different uses.
Maybe not the best but i do like jkl just cause the damage is really high and as a side note has a real cool animation
I could be wrong but I think OG Leia's basic attack is the only one that has the ability to possibly attack three times.
Doesn't necessarily make hers the best, but it's probably up there.
Ordo also does. His is more guaranteed.
Greedo would like a word..
A few that come to my mind:
Tier S: GAS, DR, C3PO (T), Piett (T)
Tier 1: Shaak, GMY, Han Solo, CLS, Ahsoka
Tier 2: Thrawn, JKA, Dooku, Daka, Spirit, Hoth Scout, Aurra
(T) = team specific
Does my r8 Vader's 100k+ basics count? I like the fact that if it doesn't kill something, it applies ability block. Lol.
My vote is for Piett. Calling just one toon to assist is a special attack for most toons and he can do two on a basic.
Not Thrawns, that’s for sure. Never stuns but always gives speed up.
Maybe you should read more.
Well that’s his point, he gives speed up, speed up turns to ability block at the end of that enemy’s turn, and he stuns any enemy that has ability block, which can’t be resisted (unless they’re immune to stun)
Well yeah that's kind of how it works
Run him with Vader. Vader ability blocks on basic, then Thrawn stuns.
