Unique, Melee Attack, Double Attack, Rolling Cleave
Followers within 6 squares gain Rolling Cleave
Commander Ahsoka is a real step up from her
previous incarnation released in Clone Wars last
year. For 4 more points, you are getting an addition
10 HP and +2 attack. She retains her stellar 20
For Abilities, she loses Impulsive Attack and
Flurry Attack, both of which are usually unreliable
abilities, and Synenergy (which wasn’t too effective
anyway due to the wording). Replacing those
abilities is Rolling Cleave. This ability was
originally on Darth Maul from Clone Strike and
hadn’t been seen since then until Asaaj Ventress,
Separatist Assassin. Rolling Cleave is a very useful
ability and is almost reminiscent of YoBuck’s
scrub-killing power. If Ahsoka can take out an enemy
with her attack(s), she can move a square and then
make another attack. One especially useful aspect of
this is that the move does not provoke Attacks of
Opportunity, so it also serves as an effective way
to disengage combat if she is surrounded.
This Ahsoka replaces Lightsaber Deflect with
Lightsaber Defense, short and simple. This is an
obviously great upgrade and I don’t think I need to
expand on it very much.
Ahsoka’s CE is what really stands out IMO.
Followers within 6 (board wide with Mas) gain
Rolling Cleave. Wow. This helps out so many
characters, it’s hard to say how best to use it. One
possible combination is to throw her in with Captain
Argyus and some Senate Commandos. Argyus grants the
Commandos Twin Attack and Close-Quarters Fighting,
and Ahsoka gives them Rolling Cleave. The Commandos
can move adjacent and make 2 attacks at +13 for a
potential 60 damage, and if the attacks kill the
enemy, move and make 2 more attacks against another
adjacent enemy. Potent stuff.
100: 2/5 I wouldn’t run her here simply because
she’s too fragile.
150: 4/5 More room for support here, though it might
require you to build around the CE.
200: 4.5/5 Even better here, lots of room for
supporting characters who benefit a lot from her CE.
