  1. I like Cad, but considering the meta is synergies, he’s mid-tier simply for not having a great one. The closest thing is a team that emphasizes combination stun/bonus attacks. I think stun is underappreciated in the meta. Cad, Dooku, and RG can take a ton of activations off the board while filling vital DPS and tank roles. Add an two characters that provide extra attacks (esp. by calling assists to trigger their bonus attacks) and you have a strong, albeit not tip-top of the line team. Qui-Gon pairs nicely- he counters tanks by eliminating their taunt and damage buffing Cad, and he calls an assist every other turn. I’ve done well with QGJ, Cad, RG, Lumi, and GS as my starters. Admittedly, though, if I need a spot replacement (say, Lobot to hard counter Sid/Vader teams), Cad is the one who rides the bench.

    He’s far from useless, and I’ve really enjoyed him, but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t grooming his replacement.

  2. How do ya’ll think Cad would be with mods now? Give him the HP he sorely needs.

  3. CheeseandHackers

    Okay, all of these people are saying he sucks because he was chromium only, but the new update means he’s available in GW. Does anybody actually have a fully leveled Cad who they’re willing to give a real review on?

    • Too squishy to be of any value. Maybe a stun lock team? Not sure that would even be worth it.

      0
    • I have him at 5 stars so I’m afraid I can’t help. I do wish this website would update it’s information and add protection numbers and any other changes

    • top tier raiding toon for tiers 5 & 6 better then rey for teams that focus on turn meter down. pretty mediocre for everything else though

      4
    • I have 4* level 7 Cad. I use him in pvp and gw. Leader is Lando, combined with Leia and Luke with Lumi as healer, both leia and cad are only 4* but they easily hold their own. He is exceptional against jedi, but without lando as leader and leia (she adds 2x criticals) he does struggle. If you do get him he does need a strong leader. Phasma could be useful with him but i have not tried.

      Hope this helps

    • I have him at lvl 66, 6* lvl7 gear. So far he’s.. ok. He can actually do decent dmg but he is kind of squishy. Also, his stun ability seems to get resisted fairly often (about 1/3 times for me)

      3
  4. Never fought with, or against him in arena. He’s a badass character in clone wars, but, like grievous and maul, his fatal flaw is daunting, you cant farm him.

    0
  5. Cad Bane = Worst daily log-in reward ever.

    Don’t get me wrong, I actually think he has some usefulness if you combine him with a combination speed/stun group (think something along the lines of phasma (leader), stormtrooper han, royal guard, cad bane, and old daka).

    The problem is, there’s nowhere to farm him. I logged in every day for a month, and only ended-up with 30/50 shards and no way to farm him. What’s the point of rewarding the shards if you aren’t going to be able to unlock him without spending money on crystals???

    0
  6. Is his unique ability +crit when fighting jedi and +crit dmg when fighting jedi or +crit all the time and +crit dmg when fighting jedi?

    0
  7. It a great pity that Cad has such low health. He has no chance against Offense Up/AOE attack. Also there is zero scoundrel synerchy you could use. Have him at 70 level 7*, but would not spend purples, In GW he is just another toon in my anti-Jedi team. Anti Yoda/Lumi/QGJ if he manages to survive the first attack wave. Overall 2 stars – waste of money.

  8. At lvl 70, 7*, max gear and abilities at 5. Wow what a waste of resources. Wish I could go back in time. Ya he sux.

  9. I rather like him. Fantastic against savage, as has been stated before, and very good damage. I got lucky as hell and got him 4 star off the bat. I don’t buy much, but I’ve spent 20 from an itunes gift card. He’s very useful, but I prefer 4 star dooku, 5 star sidious, 5 star luminara, 4 star jc and 4 star talia as my OG squad. He’s good for galactic war, though, as part of my 2nd squad. (3 star qui gon, 4 star phasma, 4 star chewie, 4 star bane and 4 star savage opress) I also REALLY want darth maul. Like, REALLY.

  10. At 7 stars, lv. 60, with all possible gear 7, he only has 7827 max HP. His speed is 107, which is a good bit on the slow side. He usually dies to AoE’s in Arena before he even gets his turn. His damage is nice, sure, but outside of the challenge against Savage Opress, he’s not worth fielding, unless you’re running a kamikaze PURE scoundrel squad with him as the leader for the evasion/turn rate bonus for GW. In which case, fielding him with Mob Enforcer, Greedo, and Chewie works ok, but it’s difficult to put Lando or Boba in that group since they synergise best in other groups (I.E. Boba leading Leia, Lando, Luke and a healer) where they’ll get better use in addition to being less likely to die.

    Cad (at current end-game meta) needs some love from either higher health and a bit more speed, or a counter-attack (like he does as a boss in the challenge).

  11. I Like Cad!

    Mine is 5-star, soon to be 6-star with a few more of the January 2016 daily shards (getting 30 total if I log in 30/31 days this month). I’m still leveling to 60 (with 70 coming later this month), so the final verdict is still out, though unlike the other (lower) ratings, I really like Cad, and keep him in regular rotation.

    Also, for those with a low-star Cad, keep in mind that you get the same speed, potency, and tenacity as the 7-star version, so the Jedi stunning move will still work great!

  12. I got him from a chromium pack (the one with 4 cards) and I’ve spent around 5 days using him, here are my thoughts:

    1. He is a great character to have in Arena especially for teams using JC/Luminara. On the downside though, he does not offer any advantage against Dooku and Sid.

    2. His stun ability is is a bonus in the first move. Many teams in GW use Chewie and I like to stun him so that I can finish off the healers by the second round.

    3. He attacks frequently, due to his 55% chance to attack again.

    4. On the flip side, and this is a big reason why I dropped him from my squads. You can’t farm his shards and I would rather not spend money on digital bits.

    So in all, for the premium players, he is good to have as a frequent attacker and to take out the Jedi healers. On the other hand, levelling is important, so if you are not going to buy chromium packs on a frequent basis, this is not the character for the long term.

    • He’s a great counter to Dooku, as Dooku can’t counter-attack while stunned.
      However, he’s too squishy for the amount of damage he outputs, and the only time I ever use him is in the Support/Healer challenge to keep Savage Opress from getting his AoE off right before his droids which more often than not results in 1-2 characters of yours getting killed.

      2
      • Begin killing those Droids before he leaps. Seriously, it really helps since JC and Talia will probably be healing before he kills anyone himself.
        But back to Cad… He’s to hard to level and to easy to kill, also i personally ignore him. A single round stun isn’t scary, it’s laughable. Daka beats him on all fronts. So yeah, 2*.

        2
        • I 2nd killing the droids off…I never lose any toons to Savage anymore. I don’t use Cad against him though. I use Daka, and Asajj Ventress(both have stun). I really don’t use him at all. I usually subscribe to “Can’t farm, can’t use”, but I have him to 5* because I seem to only get his dumbass when I’m wasting money on Chromium packs…and I got a bunch of shards because he’s the toon of the month. I might put him in the rotation to see what he can do, but I’m not sure that he’s worth wasting the gear on.
