Force Heal 20


As requested from a reader, Today we review my favorite Jedi - Barriss. As much as i was looking forward to this piece, i was really hoping for more. Her stats are a low HP of 60 and a paltry +8 attack. Her defense is a minimum for a unique Jedi, but its okay for who she is. So is she a bad piece? Well, actually she isn't. When you look at her cost, she is only 17 points. Her stats are almost godly at that level as they are well above the norm for a 17 point piece. Her rapport with Luminara is nice as it shaves yet another point off, and the synergy boosts her attack to a whopping +12 (at least whopping for 16 points).

While i knew she would probably be a healer, i was really hoping she would have more than 2 force points. You either use your FPs for heal, or save them for a reroll/movement.

Her big problem is that she has synergy with a piece that you run almost exclusively for her master speed, in which case Barriss cannot keep up. Also, as good as her stats become for only 16 points, being unique and a Jedi means she is going to die very quickly against a lot of the power shooters out there. I was really hoping for a mid 20ish costing Jedi from her with a bit more umph to her, but CotF seems to be the set of the glass cannon.

100pts: nope. natta. nothing. Way too small to run here.

150pts: Here she can actually be run. If you are running Luminara, she can be worth running as well.

200pts: At this level she is very playable, and can get even more boosts from other Jedi. The best commanders to run with her are going to be General Kenobi for the extra movement and General Windu. By giving her double attack, General Windu turns her into a very nice piece. If Qui-Gon dies, the she can get a boost for her force heal, but there are usually going to be better pieces to give it too. She is a lot of fun to play, but not a top tier piece.
