Today we look at Anakin's new apprentice. A lot of people seem to not like this figure very much. I for one love her. First off she is 20 points. Keep that in mind - 20 points! You have a very solid HP. Her defense is outstanding at 20. Her attack is a measly +7, but again consider she is only 20pts.

Ahsoka's abilities are a nice mix. She of course has double attack. Flurry attack is always nice, but is never anything you can rely on. Impulsive sweep can be nice, bu ta wise opponent will manage this and make it near worthless. To capitalize on this, you will want to run nothing but uniques for the most part. The final ability i left for last because it is supposed to be a huge plus for her, but right now it is a major zero. Ahsoka has synergy with characters named Anakin. Well, duh right!? She is her apprentice after all, but reread that. It is with a character NAMED anakin. Per the rules when an ability uses the character named X, then it only works with a character that has that EXACT name. Currently we have no characters named Anakin, and for whatever we have no errata for the CW set. She should be boosted to a +11 ATK, but until we figure out what Rob meant with the Synergy, she doesnt get it.

Finally her force is limited, but for 20 points she has exactly what i would want. 3 Force points with deflect really helps her live long enough to see the fight.

100pts: She wont be much help here. She will die just too fast against the major hitters of the this level.

150/200pts: Here she is very playable. If you are looking for low cost Jedi she is pretty good. She wont win games, but she can definitely earn her points, which is what you want. I love running her with the new General Kenobi with other low cost characters like Jarael, Barriss, Momaw, Juhani, etc. There she becomes a 24 DEF/+11 ATK. If her synergy ever gets fixed, then she could a 24DEF/+15ATK. Tell me that isnt worth 20 points. She is a step in the right direction for the return of low cost Jedi swarms.

            Today’s mini of the day is Ahsoka Tano a nice little 20 point Jedi for the Republic however does she trump the JWM master???

 

            I personally think she doesn’t her stats aren’t quite as good as the JWM she loses 30 Hit Points and 5 attack (only 1 attack when using synergy) she does gain 1 defense but she loses Duelist. Her stats are good just not as good as the JWM which is a piece she will always be compared to.

 

            However, if you want a diverse mix of Jedi plus some new abilities she is probably the best alternative to the JWM.  But as far as if it’s worth it? I would say no not only are her stats not as good she also loses quite abit of abilities (Assault, Block, Riposte, Duelist, and Sweep) she does gain some abilities (Synergy, Impulsive Sweep, and Flurry) and those are all situational and will have less of an impact that the JWM’s abilities. 

 

            If you don’t have enough points to put that JWM in you wanted then definitely she is viable but that’s about it.

 

100: 2/5 Here she will be eaten by the hard hitters of this format.

 

150/200: 1.5/5 The JWM should always be taken over her.  She would be a good piece if it weren’t for the JWM but the fact that the option is there makes her a piece that won’t see much use.
