What is the best basic in the game?

What is the best basic in the game?

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.


TheSamurai

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


HighlanderSteve

Not just clones, all allies gain it if they didn't already have it.


abhi9kuvu

Hands down best basic


YakovPavlov1943

altough being fair Hernández other 2 abilities are quite good and run o short cooldowns


Ultramega39

Jedi Anakin cause he applies both healing and buff Immunity.


jahajajpaj

Has everyone forgot about DR?


Onlyeddifies

This is the way.


fattybenji

I like Raid Han's basic, but it's probably best coupled with his unique so I don't know if it qualifies.


Ultramega39

Same goes for General Skywalker basic ability.


fattybenji

TBH I don't have him yet so I'm not really familiar with his kit 😅


Ultramega39

He requires a zeta for his basic ability. I don't have him yet either.


danbarrett92

GAS. His double basic is just pure devastation


Thunderstick77

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.


Axestris

Ahsoka’s is very nice. It has a buff dispel and a cleanse on both herself and another ally.


genosnipesgenos

GMY maybe


Barack_Drobama

Ahsoka's


Megamind1986

Yeah. Constant assists that dispel. Pretty effin’ useful


HinduHamma

Lol no. Not even close.


Denithor74

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.


JProvv

Ahsoka 100%. Unavoidable buff clear, debuff clear for herself and another Ally on crit. And heal when with 501st. No contest.


JMDeutsch

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.


eta812

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


markcsoul

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.


TheSamurai

Ordo also does. His is more guaranteed.


Kaidalorian

Greedo would like a word..


L3gend91

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


Skammadix

Does my r8 Vader's 100k+ basics count? I like the fact that if it doesn't kill something, it applies ability block. Lol.


partboozie

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.


JR-Snow

Not Thrawns, that’s for sure. Never stuns but always gives speed up.


Under_pressure08

Maybe you should read more.


redletterday94

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)


cdc030402

Well yeah that's kind of how it works


Megamind1986

Run him with Vader. Vader ability blocks on basic, then Thrawn stuns.
