https://swgoh.gg/characters/padme-amidala/ Well, we finally got to see what Padme’s kit is and I like it. I’m a little curious as to whether or not she’s really supposed to counter Revan/Malak, though. Making her immune to Fear seems to point that way, since no other faction uses Fear. And we finally get to see what the Republic gimmick is going to be: protection up. I kind of thought it was going that way when we saw the trio reworks and there were some hints of bonuses with protection up. But now we see the leadership and it certainly looks strong. You figure the ideal is going to be using Padme, Anakin, Ahsoka, and GK on the same team and getting protection up and then converting it to Courage. And that’s going to fuel a lot of damage, since 5% protection up = 1 Courage. Assuming a full Republic team, Padme’s Cunning Plan should give a minimum of +50% protection up, giving everyone 10 Courage, which makes each of their next hits deal 80% of the target’s max health as damage. Not to mention it gets even higher if they had a ton of debuffs. Anakin’s AOE give +10% protection up and Ahsoka’s special gives +20%. GK will be taunting the entire time with his Zeta. Not to mention Padme’s unique. On top of all that, we’re still 1 character short of a full Republic team. Sure, we have a lot of characters we could put in that spot, but no one dedicated. GM Yoda would probably still be better under Jedi Revan. C-3PO has protection up synergy. That could be brutal, actually. He gives +15% for each non-unique, non-protection buff. A Republic team would certainly get it and I’m pretty sure Translation isn’t unique (they have to be locked). The more I think about it, this could end up being a really powerful team. C-3PO is amazing under CLS, but there are a lot of strong Rebels out there that could be substituted in and it would still be an amazing team. Putting C-3PO under Padme could be meta. And that’s before Anakin gets a Zeta. I did end up taking Anakin to G12. Padme would need to be geared (she uses more of that new expensive gear) and Ahsoka would need work. Still, it might be a genuine Revan/Malak counter.
