As we all await the release of the next beloved chapter of Star Wars in Star Wars: The Last Jedi™, we here at EA Capital Games have been working on updating one of its iconic characters on the holotable.
We are proud to present a new, limited event for players to jump into just as soon as they exit the movie theaters. Rey's Hero's Journey, which introduces The Last Jedi incarnation of Rey (Jedi Training) to Star Wars™: Galaxy of Heroes is available now.
Rey (Jedi Training)
Light Side, Resistance, Tank
The Resistance faction has traditionally featured strong attackers and support characters, but has yet to include a character that keeps others healthy. Rey (Jedi Training) assumes the role of a potent protector by keeping her allies cleansed of debuffs and granting them Foresight to evade attacks.
Rey (Jedi Training) plays havoc with her enemies by chipping away at their turn meter and inflicting multiple debuffs, many of which cannot be Resisted or Evaded. She can also call upon her allies to assist in dealing heavy single-target damage.
This version of Rey also comes with a Leadership ability, which greatly increases the damage dealt by Resistance allies. This gives the faction an alternative to Finn's Leadership ability and allows for more variety in playstyle.
Basic: Connected Strikes
Deal Physical damage to target enemy. Damage is increased by 25% for each of the following: Rey has no debuffs; Rey has any buffs; the target has no buffs; the target has any debuffs.
Special 1: Defiant Slash
Deal Physical damage to target enemy and inflict Healing Immunity for 2 turns (this effect can't be Copied, Dispelled, or Resisted). Target other Resistance ally and dispel all their debuffs, call them to Assist, and grant them Foresight for 2 turns. (Cooldown 5).
Special 2: Mind Trick
Dispel all buffs on target enemy and inflict Ability Block, Daze, Offense Down, and Speed Down for 2 turns. For each debuff inflicted, remove 10% Turn Meter, which can't be Resisted. For each debuff Resisted, remove 20% Turn Meter, which can't be Resisted. For each active Resistance ally, gain 15% Turn Meter. This attack can't be Evaded. (Cooldown 5)
Developer Note: Rey has shown aptitude with the Jedi Mind Trick, so we gave her an ability similar to Old Ben's "Mind Tricks" to show the lineage of training from Old Ben to Luke, and Luke to Rey. While Old Ben can affect all enemies, Rey is more powerful against a single target.
Leader: Inspirational Presence
(Includes ZETA Upgrades): Resistance allies have +30% Critical Chance and +30% Critical Damage. When they score a Critical Hit, they have a 70% chance to inflict Expose for 2 turns (this effect can't be Resisted). Resistance allies gain 10% Turn Meter when an enemy is Exposed.
When Resistance allies use a Special ability:
(ZETA): When a Resistance ally uses a Special ability, all Exposed enemies lose 5% Turn Meter (this effect can't be Resisted); when a Resistance ally uses a Special ability, if they aren't debuffed, reduce their Cooldowns by 1.
Unique 1: Virtuous Protector
(Includes ZETA Upgrades): When another ally suffers a debuff, or when a Resistance ally gains Secret Intel, Rey gains 8% Turn Meter. When Rey suffers a debuff she has a 40% chance to Dispel all debuffs on herself.
(ZETA): When Rey suffers a debuff she has a 40% chance to Dispel all debuffs on herself.
Developer Note: Rey’s determination to protect her friends is reflected in this ability. She also gains direct synergy with BB-8’s “Secret Intel” buff. Thematically, BB-8's "Secret Intel" involves the location of Luke Skywalker.
Unique 2: Insight
(Includes ZETA Upgrades): At the start of each encounter, Rey gains Foresight until she Evades. Rey recovers 5% Health and 5% Protection when she Evades.
At the end of Rey's turn:
(ZETA): At the end of her turn, if Rey already had Critical Damage Up, she gains Offense Up until she is damaged instead; at the start of each encounter, Rey gains Foresight until she Evades; when Rey Evades, she recovers 5% Health and 5% Protection.
