  1. Biggs alone is a pretty mediocre character, although his assists nearly garuntee critical hits. However, he turns into a true beast with a Wedge Antilles leader. If you don’t know, Wedge Antilles leader ability is rebels gain 15% heal and 10% turn meter gain on a critical hit, along with a 30% offense bonus (at maximum) and 25% heal on finishing off an enemy. Wedge’s unique ability is +12% offense (at max) and +6 (9 at max) speed for every Ally at full health, and +12 speed for allies below full health (including dead allies)… But these bonuses also apply to Biggs!

    These synergies with Wedge turn Biggs into a devastatingly fast freight train at the start of a match — 30% + 60% offense, and his assist special also calls Wedge Antilles to assist with whatever third ally to attack, and all of them get a +75% critical chance. Ive taken out a 26k health Royal Guard on the first turn numerous times, and my Biggs was only 4*-5* at gear level 7. If you max out his special, you could use his assist every other turn.

    Alone, he is a 2/5 character, but thrown in with a Wedge Antilles lead… He turns into a disgustingly hard hitter (his special does 8k-12k – not including the assists – and his base is 3k to 8k) that heals half your team with a small turn meter boost. Wedge as a leader makes lots of characters viable (lando calrissian gaining 30% – 50% turn meter and healing 45% – 75% health on a double down??? Yes please!!!) but Biggs is a must have 5/5 character.

  2. Use Wedge as leader + Biggs, han solo tank, lando, Lea or better anakin (or han solo from raids) and u got a top 1-3 team. This is also f2p

  3. Easy to farm! Just got this guy to 4*, still too soft to help much in pvp…seems like he could be good on a assist team! qui gon, GS, IG86, tank (boba, or Poe or Finn) with a Phasma lead. I’ll Check back after I get another star on him. B toon so far. Resistance fighter, and GS are stronger.

  4. Question: I am trying to figure out how to maximize Biggs’ and IG-88 sent’s forced assist skills. Royal Gaurd seems great because of stun/speed down chance, but is too hard to farm shards for.

    Would Phasmas’ leadership have a chance to proc on the assist and/or base skill?

    Any other recommendations?

    • Royal Guard does fit very well into that type of team, but is overly difficult to farm. He is still pretty useful, even at 1 or 2 stars because his utility is amazing, but there are better options probably.

      Phasma’s leader ability (calling an ally to assist) can indeed proc on an ability that already calls an assist. Say you use Geonosian Soldier’s Swarm ability, which calls an assist, there would also be a chance that another ally, or the ally that has already been called as an assist, will act as well.

      The team that I am currently using tries to make use of this synergy (i am hovering around rank 50 right now because I am still farming shards). I run Phasma lead, Qui Gon, Geo Soldier, Dooku, and Sidious (simply because he is a strong character). Dooku works very well in assist based teams because of his passive, as well as the fact that many people use Jedi (and he is just really strong). You could easily replace Sidious for someone like Biggs or Ig-86 though if you want full synergy though.

      I prefer to run Sidious at the moment because heal immunity is really strong, especially in a burst-based team like this. Once all the assist abilities are called, the DPS drops significantly. The benefit to a team like this is that it is very fast, and you generally get an instant character lead after Geo soldier and Qui Gon move – leading to a 4v5 essentially.

  5. i m building a Rebel team and tbh Resistance pilot seems wayyyy better but i m going for a rebel team xD i think i might put old ben instead of him.. atm but i m going for farm and test him out in gw.. but he s maxed stats seems amazing from 10 armor pen to 82 thats the highest iv seen means from 2.5k dmg to about 4 k dmg basic attack with crit who knows can t , all i know is that farming him and gearing him up won t be a waste!

    • The best rebel team is to have just two rebels in your team hahaha. Sice recent upgrade of Ackbar and his hability of multi-rebel-attack, you best have real rebel bullies like Leia or Lando. You would always prefer Leia to attack than the average damage of Dack.

  6. I didn’t have a team fir him until I threw him in my Resistence team and then he started to pan out. Finn (leader), Poe, Rey, and Res Pilot round out the five. With Poe directing traffic to him, everyone gets two rounds off clean before taking serious damage. They’re my B- team right now, softening up fight eleven. Even at level 60 with Rey at 70, all 4* with Rey 5*, I’m able to kill 3/5 max star 70’s purple gear guys for my main team. Solid toon, it not spectacular. I never shy away from him in the leaderboards.

  7. There is a mistake in the unique ability description, its actually “surviving” not “suffering”

  8. I’m surprised there’s no Wedge yet.

  9. 3* on his own (non-synergy squad). 4.5* with other assisters in a group led by Nute Gunray (or Boba Fett). His low speed usually turns into instant turns with a Sideous AoE, so honestly, he’s own limited by the speed of the fastest AoE opponent. His assist is great with low crit-chance (individually unit) synergies that are led by a leader with either a huge crit damage multiplier or other benefits on crits (like Nute).

  10. I’m loving my Biggs on my phasma team I run phasma,Biggs,ig86,luminara,and counselor all the bonus attacks you get is ridiculous since these arena boards are trying to survive 1 turn my team does awesome having 3 guys attack at once will take out almost anything in 1 hit if they happen to dodge u have luminara and counselors force push to finish the job

  11. Does Biggs have really low Defense? He seems to lose health more quickly than other characters.

    0
  12. What does “built-in ship synergies” mean?

    Biggs does not fit well with my current setups, as I have few rebels and none of the important ones like Ackbar or Leia, but I’ve begun farming him from GW because I am very curious. Perhaps it applies to some future content?

    • No one really knows yet. Lots of ship data in the game, but no real relation.

      0
      • Anyway my character description says: “avanzate sinergie di squadra” i guess anyone could understand it means squad instead of ships. Plus on reddit a dev stated that most of characters description are obsolete, like ig88 high dodge…

  13. I’m now farming Biggs from GW shipments, and he looks to be a pretty good fit against crit-based teams (rebels, sith, and droids), which are pretty common on my leaderboard. As a team concept, I’ll be running something like:

    Ackbar (lead)
    ST Han
    Leia
    Luke
    Biggs / Hoth Scout

    I’m not sure how often Biggs will perform better than the very fast Hoth Scout, but he seems like a better long term character to invest in, since ships are likely coming to the game at some point, and his mysterious “ship synergy” might be good to have.

    Outside of a rebel group, I doubt he would be useful unless you pull him from an early Bronzium and don’t have many other options.

  14. Got this guy from bronzium packs. 4 time.
