  1. The most annoying opponent in the game. I usually keep him for last and finish off the others (especially if those goddamn Separatist droids or Genosian Soldier are around).

    0
  2. He’s unparalleled early on. However, as you level up he becomes very vulnerable. Still well worth acquiring and farming.

    His 100% counter chance is incredibly useful and his stun/speed down abilities make it even better – especially against Jedi (this makes him very useful for dark side missions).

    His basic doesn’t hit hard but his bonus chance makes up for it and he’s a very fast character.

    In all a very good attacking character, but know he’s likely to die vs. quality teams.

    4
  3. Count Dooku is a great Character . He is a beast just like Darth Vader. He gets 5 Stars for sure .

    5
  4. Yoda dodges dooku coz he’s the strongest character but dooku isn’t bad for me.he does a lot of damage and it attacks a lot of times.

    4
  5. Rey seems unstoppable with dooku as lead, anyone got any tips on how beat this combo, with lumi healing, st Han taunting and a royal guard backing him up, I can’t I get smashed every time. Frustrating, my team is pretty much maxed out as well.

    0
  6. Instead of nerfing him, maybe give other characters the ability to counteract him. A few months ago, all the top teams were jedi-only, so CG made Dooku and Sid stronger with huge anti-jedi bonuses. But now these two (particularly Dooku) are so good that Jedis are nearly unusable in pvp. Let’s see some anti-sith abilities please! Anakin seems like a good candidate, so does old ben.

    5
  7. I hate him. Hate facing him that is. All the one star ratings above are just upset because he’s so powerful in pvp. The fact that he’s rated only 83 in pvp and lower than Jedi Knight Anakin and Sid is testament to how out of date and/or inaccurate this site’s rankings list truly is. It seems at least 50% of top 50 teams are lead by him, and many others have him. That on its own says something.

    5 stars. I hate him.

    5
  8. Hey Fucktards at working at EA, how about you actually make his evasion 15% and not 50%!! You guys are seriously all Fucktards for screwing up this bad. Fix it now and stop trying to add to a game when you obviously haven’t perfected the fundamentals!

    1
    • +1 This is currently ruining the game, please fix asap.

      0
    • KobeHarbringer

      i with it was on 50, but no, my team rarely dodges with dooku’s lead

      0
    • Not to mention he looks like a complete fag.g.ot when doing his normal attack.

      0
    • Reflonious Baldric

      Im gonna pile on here. I use this guy in every possible battle and i STILL hate him one thing I will say: at least theyve given a character that is dangerous in the SW universe this power instead of guys like GS and Luminous Undies that are clearly just flawed. When Darth Vader is and afterthought because you can’t afford to remove Baris Offee from your lineup, you know something isnt right.

      5
  9. Currently promoting him without leveling for max power because he is so annoying. Working on 6th star and still at level 1. Hate playing against teams with Dooku. I’m gonna make sure mine is super annoying.

    0
  10. EA better fix this Motherfucker because I would’ve taken the cake if they didn’t doge my attacks FOUR TIMES IN A ROW! I’m a veteran player with an all 7* team at 31,000 power and I’ve never seen this before. EA GET YOUR SHIT TOGETHER AND FIX DOOKU

    1
    • Just use him as your leader and no need to freak out LOL

      0
      • Yoda dodged me 8 times in a row, not counting his foresight, in a Dooku lead team. 90% of teams using him as a leader is not fun. A game that’s not fun isn’t a good game. Forcing people to use him because he’s so broken OP is not the answer.

        1
    • I hear ya buddy. I seriously doubt his leader ability is working as intended. I miss an absurd amount of attacks. Mulitple 3 or 4 attacks per round. Still top 5. Without using dooku. Sick of the bullshit leader ability and 3-5 attacks out of turn by this piece of shit champ. New meta please. Not impossible to beat just really really really annoying.

      0
    • Best and most accurate comment yet. I have him but don’t use him because I like trying different synergies. Too broken. Fix

      1
    • So salty… If you can’t beat em, join em.

      5
  11. LOL at the latest update. Dooku’s leading ability used to be so op that I started to used him as my leader, following others. Today I started to play in the Arena and my team barely evades, probably 1 or even 0 evade in 10 attacks. And that happened in two games in a row LOL. I am surely gonna change my leader back to Sid or Phasma.

    0
    • is this confirmed!!

      Or were you having a bad day. I still see a lot of Dooku leads on my server.

      0
      • I’m not sure this is true, although it’s possible. I didn’t see any mention of Dooku in the update and I’ve had my whole team evade on AOE for instance. It still seems to happen more than Phasma’s assist chance or other similar evasion leaders (Lumi/Obiwan). Although, with protection it may not be quite as powerful as when you needed to take at least one toon out first round to win.

        0
  12. The most boring character in the game. When facing him paired with Phasma, there being no other reason to play him, he either doesn’t get to assist and he dies last (his counters an annoyance not a threat) or he assists and then you are destroyed by a sequence of attacks that go on so long that you’re bored and frustrated by the end. Either way he is annoying as an opponent, and not in a good way, i.e. not in a way in which you have any viable option except to hope that he never assists.

    Meanwhile if you aren’t prepared to play him with Phasma as your leader then don’t bother because he’ll just die tamely going last. If you are going to play Phasma as your leader then welcome to the cookie cutter club – Yawn.

    1
    • I agree he’s boring, but I think you’re missing his real strength: his leadership ability. It seems to be procing a ton right now, not sure if it need balancing or bug fixing, but either way the threat he generates is due to most shots being dodged and suddenly the enemy team has full health, and attack up buffs. He himself is meh, but his leadership ability seems to be wrecking house.

      0
      • The leader ability is now working as intended, was originally not working properly fixed on the 15/3/16. Patch note – “Count Dooku’s Leader ability now grants the expected amount of Evasion (was previously granting less than intended.)”

        0
  13. Why the f**k is everybody using him as Leader nowadays? Is that 15% higher than 15%?

    5
    • Apprently yes which needs to be fixed ASAP, saw up to 10 evades in a row which costs you the victory of course.

      4
      • ..Noticed the same, reeeeeeaaally annoying. Tried Ben as leader (same evasion rate and my team never evaded)and i got beaten up very badly.Needs to be fixed

        4
        • This must have slipped QA testing, we all know RNG is RNG but over time RNG becomes a statistic value and average with an delta and Luminara with 13% for Jedi doesnt even come close to 15% all allies. Even a Sidius dodges less with his 35% compared to Dokus 15% for all allies.

          Simple fix change it to only affect Sith, just like Luminare is Jedi only.

          0
          • Yeah, went up against him and Lumi and when her Evasion Up proc’s you can’t touch her, plus she gets Damage Up. Took a couple turns of MY WHOLE TEAM to touch her, luckily I’d already wiped out the rest, but damn 1 on 5 shouldn’t be so difficult.

            0
    • Lord Devastator

      Because characters evade without him, but with him as leader their evasion increases seemingly more than 15% and they also gain offense up, which is extremely nice especially when people run character with Area Cover Damage, such as Sid, Ren, Phasma, etc because at least one character is almost guaranteed to evade and gain offense up. (Yes, I use Dooku as my leader now too… I switched from using Sid, and it works out way better. Currentl ranked #91 on player level 71

      5
    • I have had dooku for a while and tried him as a leader before. I took him out because it didn’t increase my evasion. I use him as a leader now and dodge about 20% (15% from dooku + natural evasion). His leader skill was broken before and people use him now because it’s fixed.

      5
  14. What is wrong with trying to gwt shards of Dooku in the cantina???

    In the last couple of days, i sim in the cantina around 30 times and more to get Dooku shards and the results: ZERO SHARDS! Wtf??

    Habitually in the cantina you get a shard about one out of 3 or 4 attempt. There’s something definitelly wrong here.
    Love the game but make me want to desinstalled it when this non-sense happens.

    Anyone have the same anormal results?

    0
    • I’m having this trouble also. Its soo frustrating because you keep on replaying the battle, telling yourself ‘I’ll get one soon, maybe next times’ and without realising, youve wasted 10 sims and 120 cantina energy! :(

      4
    • You missed the “possible” reward part. 😀 Working as intended bruh.

      5
  15. Since I switched from Phasma lead, my arena rank jumped from top 20-30 to top 5, with several #1 finishes. Even if he’s nerfed in the future, he’s paid for himself many times over these last four weeks.

    5
  16. The only reason some peoplecthink dooku flalls off lategame is because
    They 7 star sid and lumi but dooku is still at 4 star.

    A 7 star dooku is string as fk late game.

    5
  17. Been seeing Dooku as lead a bit. Fairly confident his leader skill is giving more evasion than it should.

    0
    • I would second this. I’ve had trouble cracking the top 30 because when I go up against a Dooku lead team I miss every kill shot. I had three (at least) in a row miss on Poe, including humbling blow, which was the most devastating. Even though his single hit isn’t that great, you can basically double it with his basic fully upgraded, coupled with stuns, ability blocks, and evasion…he’s tough. You can’t leave him, but you don’t want to attack him. I have to hope I can get him with QGJ assist first round, otherwise he’ll stun and cripple my team. Easy 5 star, and he’s tough as AI opponent too too which is crucial for Arena.

      5
      • THIS. I used to crack the top 20 and now I’m having difficulty treading water around 50. Literally every team I see now is lead by Dooku (9/10) or QGJ (1/10). I’m literally not seeing any others, and I’m the only dummy still running Sid as leader.

        Just today I managed to only hit one toon on the opposite team (lead by Dooku) ONCE. Nothing else landed, and I lost by a landslide.

        TLDR Dodge seems to be happening at near 100%. Either bugged or maybe just in dire need of nerf. If everyone in the top 50 is running the same leader, a balancing needs to happen ASAP.

        5
        • Dodge is happening way more than it should. At 15% 1/5-7 attacks should be dodged, not what seems to be every other attack.
          I ran an all Sith team with Maul’s 17.5% evasion for gits and shiggles, giving Sid a bonus 52.5% evade against Jedi, and I was averaging 1-3 evades every match.
          I think Dooku’s leader ability is working overtime and Maul’s has taken the day off.

          5
  18. Key is to time your hits on him. Don’t use AoEs when he’s in the fight. Hit him only with your biggest non-Jedi guns whose health is green and only when his turn meter is almost full. He often gets turn meter boost when he goes out of turn, so his counter attack when his turn meter is almost full anyway doesn’t grant him even more extra attacks. What I’m saying is Dooku is one of those characters that seriously disrupts the offensive strategy of the other team.

    5
    • THIS. A person that understands how to fight Dooku. He is a jedi killer. My favourite strategy is to use Geno Soldier assist ability to one shot him. FOTP is also a good option (with advantage). He isn’t #1 on kill list though if there is a SID or Geo Solider.

      5
  19. They’ve just fixed his leader ability. I’m going to try out an evasion team with dooku (l), Sid (he’ll now have 50% dodge vs Jedi), yoda, lumi and qgj. Love evasion type of teams so hopefully this works

    4
    • I ran a Dooku leader team today in Arena. It does work now! Best part was when my Geo Soldier evaded and got Dooku’s offense up. Next turn, Geo hit Sid with basic shot, with offense up plus got a crit. 13K damage took out a 7-star Sid in 1 shot. It was beautiful!!! Dooku is a great counter to all the Qui Gon lead teams out there.

      5
    • I like the idea of playing Dooku, Sid, Lumi, Boba Fett & Old Ben – now that’s a team with evasive abilities. Other characters with evasion abilities are Greedo, Biggs Darklighter & Darth Maul. Darth Maul is too difficult to farm though

      0
  20. a little overrated sometimes, but great

    4
  21. I bought the pack back in Dec. Used dooku a lot then. He hit the bench somewhere in the 50s. I see a lot of people complain about the guy. My tip for taking out dooku is blast him with gs special. I may suffer 1 round of counters but usually he gets smashed in those 2 hits. Now that I’m maxed and gs is 7* I’m going to farm his cantina node and 7* him for back up phasma team.

    0
  22. I can’t believe it took me this long to realize but a doku sometimes attacks TWICE. That might not sound like too big of a deal but when you have cap phantasm as leader and then have him and quigon along with healer and maybe a tank….your team would be unstoppable because everyone is attacking extra. Even this new megatrooper has two attacks. EACH AND EVERY ATTACK is counted towards this leader generated extra attack chance. It’s like a circus. 5 star tho

    5
  23. handy in the right team, but really not as hot as people say – a good backup for your GW team though at 5 stars

    3
  24. So. Been trying to figure this one out. Might have been a bug, but past week or so, I noticed Phasma as leader, and Qui Gon sometimes got 2 guys jumping in for the assist. And I swear Phasma gave herself am assist once or twice yesterday. But since getting Dooku, I haven’t seen the crazy BS I was expecting.

    I expected Dooku to attack, possible assist (Phasma) and attack again. And/or Dooku counter, poss. assist, and attack again (with another hopeful assist).

    Was this a bug or what?

    3
    • With Phasma as leader you have a base 18% chance of assist attack. If you use QGJ’s assist attack another of your squad will assist with an 18% chance of a second assist (based off Phasma’s Leader ability). Not a bug. Great when it happens.

      As for Dooku, he has a 25% chance of gaining 40% turn meter each time he assists or counter attacks (not when he is taking his actual attack turn). That can lead to a double counter + 2 normal attacks (bonus attack chance) making you think he is attacking more than normal.

      0
  25. I use Sid/Lumi/Dooku/Daka/QGJ, and have found Qui-Gon Jin to be the most effective Dooku-killer. You can either soften him up with a non-Jedi (preferably Sidious), or buff everyone with Humbling Blow, and Harmonious Assault usually finishes him off. Now that you can get his shards in cantina shipments, getting him isn’t as much of a problem.

    That being said, Dooku is one of my favorites because he makes a complete wreck of Luminara and I see her everywhere.

    5
  26. no counterattack anymore?

    5
  27. He’s fast and he can attack out of his turn. Damn this guy is a beast and can be added in any conposition.

    5
  28. Out or curiosity, does a counterattack trigger a counterattack? I mean, if dooku1 attacks dooku2, would they just keep going back and forth until one dies, or would it end after the initial counterattack?

    0
  29. Dooku is a game-changer. Just got him a few days ago and he’s been a very solid addition to my PvP team despite having only 3 stars and being by far my weakest power-wise character. He attacks 2-3 times as much as anyone else and punishes AOEs. Can’t upgrade some of his abilities though I don’t know what’s up with that. Have all the mats, credits, and level so a little confused on that.

    5
    • Had this same issue. The purple upgrade token sometimes doesn’t appear to show up in the “needed mats” box (because you have to actually scroll down to see that you need it). I kept looking at some of my chars wondering why it looked like I had the mats but couldn’t upgrade them, turns out I was missing a few purple upgrade tokens. Had the credits, the white tokens and the green tokens, just not enough purple. I’d bet this is why you can’t upgrade as well.

      0
  30. DOOKU IS A SUPER STRONG CHARACTER. At high level pvp, people tend to approach a different tactic to win the game.

    But that is why he is so strong. His mere presence not only pisses the player who has to verse him off beyond the face of earth but dooku’s presence in any team forces the opponents to cut back on the AoE (you know, those devastating 5 AoE character teams get denied thanks to dooku), opponents attacks are more careful and planned meaning timer runs out faster for opponents and generally make them play more passively and deal less damage overall simply because Dooku.

    He is truly a 5 star character nomatter what other people say about his low health, OF COURSE HE HAS LOW HEALTH TO COMPENSATE FOR HIS DAMAGE. Dont flatter yourself nearly all characters die in 1 round when focused its not just dooku, but unlike most characters, he will not go down without a fight thanks to 100% counter, 100% bossness and 50%attack twice. Dooku is FIRE. You touch him you get burned. He doesn’t go down free like many others say to badmouth him (unless if he’s stunned).

    He is an ANTI-JEDI aka ANTI HEAL character because he has 90% stun chance on a jedi and 70% change to inflict a negative effect (stun or abilblock) with his BASIC attacks which oh btw have even more chance to proc cuz of his double attacks, and what powerful healer isn’t a jedi? R.I.P Luminara RIP Consular RIP Barriss Offee.
    Also, RIP Old Ben’s op Abil.block

    Plus, some handy advice, Pair Dooku up with Phasma lead and destroy squads with bonus bonus attacks. If your opponent doesn’t want to touch dooku at the beginning, you have a lasting anti-jedi, anti-AoE, anti-fun, and self bonus attacking (phasma lead) sith that your opponents need to deal with. If you are a freebie like I am, you can get 50 shards within a month. Just farm religiously and you will get him.

    7*Phasma 7*FoTP 7*Dooku 7*Lumi Rey/Sid/Poe/Daka/Elder
    Is my squad.

  31. How do I upgrade hindering press and force lightning past level 5? I have the money, and the materials, but it won’t let me upgrade them. It doesn’t say that there is a certain level required, or any requirements for that matter.

    4
  32. So many are complaining but he is so easy to take down if you leave him for last and don’t AOE. But he’s also a good player to have because the AI isn’t that smart and won’t take him down in that manner. Also he’s shards should now be farmable at tier 6 Catina squad battles which is lvl 69, so you would have to wait. But a solid character to have and an easy one to take out.

    5
    • Agree 100%. From my experience in PvP would add that:

      1) he’s useful against AoE chars: Phasma, Vader, Boba Fett, and especially Sid and Kylo, in that AI doesn’t get away with AoE attack without proper punishment. After 1st turn (AoE attack) Sid will be one attack away from meeting his maker and by end of game, enemy Kylo will be only one standing and with half health.

      2) His stun on Jedis is indispensable and is the only reason I still keep him on PvP team. You want to use it immediately on enemy Lumi or Ben before enemy Poe taunts (that is if you’re lucky and he didn’t go first).

      He’s a free character, easy to gear and farm (at level 6-G holotable). Think twice before investing into him, though, he may not be useful end-game against top PvP teams. See rankings for PvP they’re about right.

      5
  33. Does stun, washes dishes, make sandwich, and even do the laundry.

    5
  34. Okay this is ridicoulous, count doku is not broken. U just Need better teams. I litterally laugh when ppl run count. Use qui as leaders to speed up obi wan then offence down for 2x turns and rape their team. Qui,Obi,poe,lumi and Leia/sid is my current lineup. Even beeing most jedi it still rapes count.

    2
    • Thats very nice team setup, but not everyone pay for this game, for free players is Doku farmable and pretty solid choice.

      4
    • You may laugh when you see count, i laugh at people using money to get a better team to rape a free character 😀

        • p2p players aren’t the only ones keeping the game going. That is misleading. Having a large customer base is just as important as the income derived from p2p players. If succeeding at the game or merely enjoyment required p2p then I’d agree but it does not. You can have a very solid arena team f2p – just takes longer to achieve.

    -Lvl 2 = 25% chance to gain 25% turn meter when attacks outside of his turn.
    -Lvl 3 & 4 = +5% turn meter gain

  36. He is a challenge. Atm I’m in late 40’s so I understand my meta will change. But for now I love getting destroyed by him. It gets me pumped when it comes down to the wire! Also my average is 2 shards/day… so yeah he’s not going to get 5 stars anytime soon. But he is a must have so my 3 star rating goes to a 4

  37. I agree with Annoos although I would just lower his damage output. Give him all the attacks, that’t fine but make it to where he doesn’t crit on multiple attacks or just lower damage output all together.

  38. Dooku makes me not want to play this game. I haven’t been unable to unlock him, and pretty much after I have gotten to level 50, he destroys my crew if I go up against him. Not fun at all. Besides, why should there be one character that I HAVE to use to advance in the game? I think that is the definition of OP, whining or not.

    • how can a dooku destroy your team? leave him alone, dont give him the possibility to proc the 25% turnboost or stuns on counterattacks, play with 2 healers which are given out for free & incredible easy to farm #luminara #jediconsular or daka if you get her and dooku is no problem @ all, you guys have never faced a p2w leia-team

        You definitely don’t have a lot of Jedis…. Cunt (yes o is intended missing) Dooku always stuns your Jedi healers and then keeps counterattack and do extra attacks until your healers die and then you lose

    • Ignoring the pretense and use of hash-tags, internetzer is right in one regard; just ignore him in PVP. He is not over-powered, and he is certainly not needed to advance in the game. What he is, aside from annoying, is anti-AOE/anti-jedi. If you want to minimize his power over you; dont use jedi, dont AOE, and dont attack him until most of the opposing offense is defeated. Everyone has a way to beat them, Annoos.

        All true.

        But look at how many restriction you have to follow to deal with a team with him in it.

        Good control, good damage, especially at neutralizing healers or Luminara. He is not very sturdy, but his counter ensure getting him down will not be easy. You’ll need to use some very high single target dps on him to reduce the return damage, or stun.

        While you do that, however, you risk unchecked sid, lumi or luke thrashing your team. If you ignore him, you risk having your healer (which are 90% of the time jedi’s, unless you run Daka) neutralized in a key moment.

        He is listed as a support, and does a great job of multiplaying his team’s power by limiting your options fighting it.

  39. All ratings here are made by whiners which have no clue bout current end game. dooku, once lv 60, is just used by players havin trouble to fill their teams, you hardly can get him to 5 stars and although hes very strong aganist QGJ teams everyone who got a decent option switches him out cauz stars win games…

    his lv 70 stats are quite low, he has the highest base speed ingame but thats it, he was designed to generate that OMG FML SO OP I NEED IT FOR 5BUCKS impression for beginners

    dooku is ghood hes one of the best 4 stars for sure but he gets outclassed later ill rate him 2 instead of 3 deserved stars to lower that incorrect 5 star average rating

    • With that said its still very worth it to farm him as much as you can. If only at 4 stars that hes strong, imagine 7. For people that dont want to invest too much into him, at least save 72 energy to get some shards for him. Not a good idea to ignore this character’s development.

  40. He needs a nerf. Every time I go up against him, he shreds my team in 2-3 moves. Way overpowered.

    0
    • His health isn’t that great. Save him for last or second to last and just auto battle him. If you ignore him (no AoE either), his is denied his greatest strength, attacking out of turn.

      I use bariss, lumi, mace, ash, and qui and I never have too much trouble, even with his stuns.

  41. Playing against Dooku is becoming more than just a little bit tedious. I regularly (perhaps just my bad luck) see him attack four or five times in a row causing enormous damage. For an elderly Sith who, let us remember, had his head cut off by Anakin Skywalker, he is definitely overpowered. The only way to stop him is to take him out with stun (not particularly effective since he seems to quite often avoid it).

    Great character if you happen to own him. Game breaking if you don’t.

    • you play him all the time in the highest levels >58 PVP. absorb the stun, then ignore to till near the end of the battle. I avoid AOE when early if i want to avoid the his counter.

  42. Query. How was it determined that “Flawless Riposte” level 7 gives +5% Turn Meter Gain? I’ve got it leveled to 5, and next upgrade requires him to be level 62. Has the requirements changed since initial release?

    If so, can you still get to level 6 for his leadership ability?

    5
  43. Is there any way to nullify his reposted when playing against him?

    0
  44. If you use him with Captain phasma, he’s unstoppable. When he counter attacks his turn meter fills. When he bonus attacks it fills. When I have both of them on my squad, probably 40% of all attacks are coming from him.

  45. With 100% counter and the chance to attach twice; even when counter attacking, makes him way too over powered IMO.As most healers tend to be Jedis he is a devestating character to go up against. They should look at reducing the counter attack and have it so his bonus attack only works on a basic attack otherwise he can have multiple attacks in 1 go.

  46. The only problem I have with Dooku is how ridiculous it is to upgrade him. On average, I get 2 shards a day. So I’ll have him 7 starred some time next Summer…

  47. Okay. Let’s start off by saying that EA has finally made something that’s actually really *ahem* broken.

    Count Dooku is currently, and if not ever will be, the strongest single-character in the game.

    His base stats are on the higher end of the 3* summons that you can unlock, he has a 100% counter chance after gear lvl 4, gives an evasion bonus as a leader, has a stun mechanic built in, negates half of the current usable character synergies by being anti-jedi, and even powers himself up and allies too if targeted? Come on.

    He’s a character that should be on your list in arena. Spend most of your days farming and 7* and 50 him asap, as he really just does most things you’ll need to win on the dark side of the map.

    Also, sorry for being that debby-downer, but he definitely does need a nerf. He’s a one-stop-shop and when you’re supposed to have a game that’s constructed around building the best squad, it’s not cool to have a god-like character that makes the rest of the options in the game seem less boring.

    • The counters must be limited to one strike and no debuffs. He takes too much time to fight in the arena because of animation time, and any decent healers are jedi, so he completely nullifies them, as well as 2/5 of any team on his first strike (which even at only three stars is somehow higher than my five star attackers)… Even if you beat him, he can seriously drain your timer, and then I need to hope that autopilot can take out the rest in time.

    • Don’t think he needs a nerf. Guy is pretty squishy. In arena he attacks once on the other team and then gets immediately sent off to meet his maker if I feel the need to. I usually just ignore him and kill him third or fourth and he has only posed as an annoyance rather than an issue.

        Not a annoyance when he stuns half of your team and then mocks you with a extra attack and more extra attacks

        • Verfallen Aingealis

          He forces an adaptation in strategy, however his damage is RNG dependend, as a single strike has very little effect comparatively on non jedi.

          He is squishy enough to be taken down very fast by a high dps character, we are far from a Leia here. He’ll be a good asset to take down some heal-powerful team, but AI doesnt use him as well as it could.

          A good character, in the upper average part of the ranking for sure, but I would say not overpowered per say. Just possibly very annoying, especially for people who paid large sums to assemble a bad-ass jedi team and gets thrashed by a F2P team that has him.

  48. I feel like Dooku is a must have for your PvP squad his counter attacks and bonus attacks are just so good. Sadly I do not have him yet.

  49. Lvl 5, leader skill, is +1.5% evasion, so will evade 9.5% needs lvl 50 Character. FYI. Thanks.

  50. The ability descriptions are off (even assuming full upgrades). For example, Hindering Press is now 25% chance to stun (90% on Jedi) instead of the 35% chance just for Jedi listed above. Any idea when you might have time to update these (and on other characters too)?

    Would it be possible to get the base ability listed with each upgrade in a chart/table underneath? That was we could see which trees were worth pursuing before spending mats.

    Thank you for this site. As someone who loves planning and theorycrafting, this has been invaluable over the last couple days as I’ve started playing.

    • We’re keeping up with it as best we can…EA changes things quite often, but Hindering Press at Level 6 is as described in our listing. The 90% Stun on Jedi is only applicable to his force lighting special.

      • Derp, my bad. I spend most of my time on this game from midnight to 3am after everything refreshes, so I missed that.

        Thanks for the breakdown of ability upgrades, though. Definitely beneficial!

  51. What do I need to do in game to get the promo offer for 4.99 that includes Dooku? I just started playing today and level 6.

  52. Count Dooku is probably my favorite character so far; he’s a one-man wrecking crew once you get his Flawless Riposte ability, and even more-so when you upgrade it. His Force Lightning is devastating and his extra attacks make him invaluable.

  53. The fun factor, utility and power of this hero is really high! Definitely one of my favorites.
