We are back! We too a couple weeks off just to take
a break before the maelstrom that will be Imperial
Entanglements. Today we get back in gear with a
reader request from the CS days. She comes in at a
cost of 45 points. This is a bit steep, but she is
such an old piece that it is not that surprising.
Her 90 HP is actually pretty good as is her 19 DEF.
The 12 ATK is pretty good as well. Overall, her
stats have held up over time.
For abilities, she has BH+4. This can boost her
attack to a nice +16. Add in her loner for another
+4 and all of a sudden she is shooting at a +20!
There are not too many targets she is going to miss
with an attack like that. She also has stealth. This
was decent back in the day, but now with all of the
super stealth commanders running around, she has
gotten even better. Finally, you have her unique
ability in Kouhun Infestation. This is a pretty
powerful ability. It does a whopping 60 DAM to a
character within 12, save 11. This is great against
non-jedi, but with all of the Jedi that are running
around, amny now having master of the force 2, KI's
infestation has gone down a bit. KI also has the
added advantage of not need line of sight. This is
great because she can do it from around a corner.
HOWEVER! you must still follow normal targeting
rules. You cant hit a stealth character further than
6 squares. You have to hit the closest target when
they have cover, etc.
Nice stats and some great abilities, so why isnt she
worth it? Well there are a couple reasons. First off
is her damage output with her normal attack for the
cost. Most characters in this point range can dish
40-60 DAM. She gets a measly 20 DAM. She also lacks
accurate shot, so she has to target what is out
front. 45 pts for an ug killer is a bit overkill.
Give her double and accurate and suddenly she is
very much worth the points.
100pts: Not enough damage output here to be
150pts: She can work here, but she is too expensive
to be cost effective. Her best build will be in some
sort of super stealth.
200pts: This will be the best place for her because
you can dilute her cost. Again super stealth will be
your best bet, and i would also recommend Thrawn
from the universe. His Ysalimari will make her KI
much more effective against Jedi as they cant reroll
the save. They have one shot to not take a quick 60
DAM. She is way over costed but can still be used
effectively if not efficiently.
Bounty Hunter +4
Today is a blast from the past. Zam even today has
some uses with or without decent CE’s. She is one of
the few people in the game even today that can boost
her attack to +20 without CE’s. But given CE’s se
can get up to 23 defense and 24 attack with General
Obi-Wan Kenobi. Her stats aren’t the best things
about her though she is tied with the ASN assassin
droid in highest auto damage ability in Kouhun
Infestation which just got a lot better with
Grandmaster Luke Skywalker coming out in these next
few months. She also has stealth which is always
nice to have.
Some current combos that work good for
her are GOWK of course as mentioned earlier, General
Wedge Antilles or General Rieekan, Nyna, Holo
Sidious, General Windu, Darth Krayt, Vader LOTF just
to name a few.
In the end this one of the few pieces
that still has a use from CS she has definitely
taken hits because now a days you can get much more
productivity for 45 points nowadays and the lack of
extra attacks has also hurt her wince quick damage
is the speed of the game now.
