Double Attack

Force 5
Deflect; Heal 20; Lightsaber Assault

CE: Allied Anakin within 6 squares gains +4 ATK.

Today's piece is my second leading piece for 'best fig to ever be ruined by a CE' (Aayla being #1). He is a great piece, but the CE just kills his potential a thousand fold.

Stat-wise he is a good Jedi all the way around and is pretty much the last fig before hitting the Uber Jedi of Yoda and Windu. Force 5 gives him a lot of chances to use his 1FP costed abilities. Deflect is one of the two great defensive abilities. Heal 20 is something you won't use often, but in rare cases it does come in handy. How he ended up with heal though is beyond me. Lastly, Lightsaber assault, to me anyway, is one of the greatest force powers in the game. It really extends the threat range of a character.

In the end, Obi-Wan is a great piece. His big problem though is that he cant partake of the great CE's that are out there. He doesn't get CS Yoda's CE to reroll the deflects, nor does he get triple attack from Gen Windu. His CE is good in that it makes Anakin, Jedi Knight very powerful, but when they could have done this with synergy instead of a CE, it ends up being absolutely horrid. In the earlier days of the game Ani, Obi and Aayla actually made a very good team, but anymore, you have to max out synergy to have a good squad.

100pts: Here he is playable, but you won't do as well against the tier 1 squads. If you try him here, you will do well to use Ani with him.

150pts: Here he is better. You can bring in some help for him. The Obi/Ani/Aayla squad is still a good squad if you fill it out right, but it won't be as powerful as it once was.

200pts: Here he can be effectively fielded, but in many ways he lends himself to running a stand alone Jedi squad where you go for Jedi power over any real synergy between pieces. Each is kind of an island unto themselves. The basic synergy is in the sheer number of HP you can fit in. He is a great piece ruined by a horrid CE.
