  1. Sid or Kylo? What you think guys?

  2. People, is it worth it to farm or not?

    0
  3. I do say he is ok but not a beast. Daka, Royal Guard, QJ, Anakin, Teebo … i can count a lot of toons who can stop him. Stun or buff remover can kill him in no time. I love to have ray from cantina 7-F. Starkiller Ray Ftw

    4
  4. He is good. But please, he should be a sith

    4
    • No, because he is not sith. In the Disney universe, the last sith were The Emperor and Vader. Only possible sith is Snoke but that is not sure yet.

  5. Publish This Review, Please

    So I’ve been farming Ren about 95% of the time I’ve been doing cantina on 4C. My toon is 5* (pretty close to 6), and gear VII. He is a BEAST. Huge amounts of health in my opinion, awesome and very helpful moves that inflict debuffs, counter (applied to him) on his group attack, and when he is half health or lower, his special move does way more damage, and with Phasma’s advantage and leader ability, he is pretty much unstoppable.

    A character i dont want to face in arena for sure!
    Easily farmable in cantina healing immunity and counter (retribution) is OP!

  8. Does I’m wrong or since the last update his armor stat has strongly level up !? More than the website stats shows

  9. So i run a offensive team Sid(l)/Kylo/dooku/Sthan/lumi. All 5/6 star gear 7-6. After kylo uses his aoe. This forces them to attack han who has taunted instead of aoe and the rest of my team gains yurn meter, or they either face healing immune or stun. I am trying to max about before i start in the arena, but any tips?

  10. Lord Devastator

    I am on player level 71 right now (just a few days after the new update) and I am ranked #91 in the arena. I have to say, when Ren first came out, I was very unimpressed with him. But after seeing more and more of him 7* gear level 8, I have to say he is quickly becoming one of my least favorite characters to face in the Arena. He has just enough health that I can’t knock him out in one turn if I use an attack on someone else. The most annoying thing about him though, is with low health he can bypass his cooldowns and do some serious damage.

    I run Dooku (L), Geo Soldier, Sid, Lumi, and Qui-Gon

  11. Sid v Ren
    :v im still farming kylo ren shards, retribution is sure useful for arena

    My team: phasma/lumi/conselor/QGJ/geo soldier
    All in 5stars
    Always do a great work when every team has healing imunity buff 😀

    0
  12. I have him 4* level 60 right now and I don’t think I’m gonna get him to 7* because now that Old Ben is farmable, Ben beats Kylo in the Arena because of his Mind Tricks ability. I also would like to know why Kylo is not a Sith! I mean he is a SITH! Other than all that, he is a very good character but I recommend farming Old Ben and then using the tokens to buy QGJ.

    5
    • He’s a knight of Ren. They were very clear that he was not a sith in the films. Not yet anyway. When snoke wants to complete his training maybe he becomes one later

      0
    • He is not a Sith. The order of the Sith died out with Vader and Palpatine being the last of the line. The Sith are gone forever. Kylo is part of the Knights of Ren. A new dark side order.

  13. I have never once been defeated by Sideous. Kylo a beast…no comparison. I wield a 7 star Opress, 7 star Kylo, Dooku, and 7 star Asajj Ventress…just recently acquired Darth Maul. Once farmed to 7 star….Watch out!!!

    5
  14. This toon is by far the most usefull toon on my squad. Great AoE. Great basic attack. Anyone who says otherwise needs to stop playing.

    Lumia/Dooku/Sid/Kylo/Quigon for the win

    0
  15. This character is legit anyone who says otherwise is a fool. AoE is great, healing immunity amazing. He is the most useful tool on my squad

    0
  16. I may be mistaken if there ARE exceptions to Retribution, meaning if Retribution under certain conditions do not apply, cause I just got it again couple minutes ago in Arena: Sid attacked with Demoralizing Blows, my Kylo had R (with the arrow over his head), Kylo didn’t strike back… Wouldn’t mention it if it happened 2-3 times, but for real always use Kylo in PVP and happened I’d say 6-7 times Retribution did not work. Again, maybe there are conditions where R does not apply but from reading the description it does not specify any such conditions?

    4
    • It is the hit scripting. You are dodging the hit of Sidious, but taking the DoT, DoT does not proc Retribution, only physical hits do.

      Any damage can refresh his cooldowns.

      I am at 6-Star with him, finishing him out after I finish 7-star Dooku. He is a consistent character in my team still.

      5
  17. do not farm this character! he is only good in arena. his healing immunity is great, but sidious could also do it. his reset cooldown skill is also great, but it isnt worth it. you’d be better off farming geanosian soldier, IG-86, mace windu or lando

    3
    • Nope, this is flat out wrong. I have used Kylo since I got him in January for GW everyday, his cool down reset often happens twice per battle and he is a complete tank at 7 stars, he is the only character that has a powerful AOE that can be used regularly (sometimes every turn), a fantastic single target attack which I have seen do 12000 damage (without offense up), and can become as dangerous as Dooku counter-wise after his AOE. This is a character who succeeds in literally every area, he excels in arena but is also fantastic in GW and missions
      due to cool down reset.

      0
    • Lie!
      Sid has less than HALF of Kylo’s health!
      Kylo can do DoT with his basic as well as healing immunity!
      Kylo can give himself Retribution, (100% counter chance) turning him into a miniature Dooku!
      Kylo can refresh his cooldowns very often!
      Kylo’s Outrage special does great damage!

      5
  18. Don’t have him, but if I’m going against a team with him, I’ll go after this guy first because he’s scary.

    5
  19. Upper Mid Field today
    will get a boost when lvl cap reaches 80 (All dmg skills +15%!)…so no hurry for now

    + He is easy to get on the holotables
    + Tanky Char with medium dmg, medium speed and good debuffs
    + Allrounder that people dont like to target in pvp because of his passive and buff of spell 2.

    – He does only good dmg on single target if 3rd spell is up and he is below 50%
    – All his strong stuff is bound to conditions (low health for good dmg, already casted a spell and therefor:)
    – Too slow for current meta (14.3.16)
    – He needs the full or at least 4 man FO squad: Phasma, FO Tie pilot, FO Officer and Kylo Ren
    to be somewhat valid for PVP. (pilot as FO trooper as well are slow grinds)

    Suggestion: There are higher priority Chars on the Holotable especially Genosian Soldier. On the other Hand there are very few good chars to get on Holo Table, so u will get kylo sooner or later anyway (Genosian Soldier, Count Duku, Barris Offe, JC and Kylo are only legit on holotable , followed by useless talia, mace and lando)
    Get Genosian Soldier first on holotables, than Barris if ur on Yoda hunt or struggling in Galactiv war or Count Duku if u wannt a strong pvp char (He is fastest char in game and crushes Jedis which are plenty atm) then get kylo ren. i highly recommend to skip JC, he felt off recently and u dont need him. 2 healer are fine for GW, Lumi + barris). for PVP , u want also lumi or daka or ewok elder (very hard to get) as healer.

    ur welcome

    4
    • Another + is he is darkside, unless u run an outdated Droid Squad u will probably have a harder time on dark side than good side hard battles in higher stages. Do GS, then start farm Kylo till u reach Holotable 6, then do Barris Doku, then come back to Kylo.

    • Aayla Secura is also a available on the holo tables and is far from useless

  20. Good health, average damage with synergies only shine when he gets hit. No leader abilities means one less thing to worry about.
    Good in PvE since AI doesn’t choose targets wisely as human.
    In PvP matches opponents would surely leave him for the last. So Kylo is the sort of last-stand character, but he can be good against characters with counter-attacks.

    0
  21. I was wondering is he like hard hard to get because I got the game to use him

    5
  22. Thanks I just really want to get him

    0
  23. Hey I keep seeing people with characters that shouldn’t exist, like 2-star Vader and 3-star Kylo Ren. Any idea on how to get these characters?

    5
  24. I can’t seem to find him in Holotable Battle 4-C?

    0
  25. My team is Phasma (L), Lumi, Maul, Daka, and Sid/Kylo for Heal immunity. I choose based on opponents. Sid has lower health (but self-heal), Kylo has very little damage. His DOT effect is awesome, though

    4
  26. Still gearing him, but seems solid in my line up. Since getting him he seems to be holding the team at a higher rank easier, and he’s still not at my capable max level.

    Kept noticing in GW, the bots would target Daka then spray and pray the rest of the guys. Now running 3 self healing, 2 counters, 2 healing immunities, and D.O.T. bombs, ability block and a slow down, he’s helping me take down 3000-4000 power levels above my power level.

    For my team the switch from Daka’s stun to Kylo’s healing immunity has been a plus.

    5
  27. i tries to believe for a while that he was a great piece for Arena, unfortunately he doesn’t shine. I have him at 7* max gear and still drop him out.

    Although his Outrage is good but very low chace that he can pull it off while he is below 50%, as everyone know we pick & kill off 1 by 1 at a time. He will either die or stay in full health.

    He is useful in GW because of his health and spamable AOE.

    But in a competitive Arena, he is slow, average damage and poor synergy. No threat.

    4
  28. He’s awesome!! Counters, great cool down. High 3rd special.

    5
  29. I don’t really get the “S-Dam” column…is that for his AOE? Because the Outrage attack is hitting as well as any attack in the game.

    4
  30. 4 star hero at best. I almost have him at 7 stars and level 8 gear (1 shard away) right now he is useful in arena, but fos the hype of the new movie and him as an overall character he is underpowered. He SHOULD be doing more damage, dooku still can put out more damage than he can. He needs to have a buff added for sure.

    2
  31. Just have to share the awesomeness…my 6*, gear viii kylo ren took out Rey and Leia one after another. Rey hit him 3x in a row in one turn (she’s really OP), which made his health red, and he countered all 3 killing her. Then on his turn i used outrage and luckily got a crit (doesnt happen that often) and did almost 9000dmg on Leia instant killing her.

    4
  32. Can someone explain where he gets the ability to Counter from?

    Unstoppable – Kylo has a 45% chance to reset his cooldowns whenever he is damaged.

    0
  33. Kylo Ren is great. His health and damage are both above average. His abilities are great, while not being “OP”. He’s absolutely not worth $50 USD, but he is worth having! Easy 4*, and if you get him free 5*.

    5
  34. Kylo synergizes greatly with phasma, and can be great on a counter team. One of my favorites is phasma as leader for the multi atks, dooku because of his relentless counter and damage, ren has incredible damage potential and resets. Sidious and a healer (luminara or barress). That composition will let you win against teams 3000 points ahead of you because of the sheer number of turn differences. In my opinion kylo is a very good character.

    0
    • still probably better off with just a tank and 4 heavy damage dealers. i have sid, dooku, QGJ, darth maul, and storm han and the highest i’ve beaten so far was 6k power more than me at 28k. my guys are level 64 to 66 and none are 7 star.

      0
      • P.S. the guy i beat was a whale and had 7 star whole team, including leia and old ben

        0
      • With Kylo’s anti healing buff plus the fact that it hits as a counter (with retribution), he might be a Sid replacement. Nice team, by the way… almost have storm Han in my lineup. Killer tank.

        4
  35. Very disappointed in Kylo. Turns out he has to gain counter attack, called retribution buff for one turn, by using weak ineffective aoe. DONT GET HIM! Don’t spend money on any characters in this game.

    0
    • I completely agree with you Al. He needs an overall Buff, Genosian Soldier puts out WAY more attack than him criting for almost 7-8K at a time at this point.

      0
  36. What is his epic, pre-epic gear material?
    What blue material you need to farm? (20 of).. ie: Mk 4 SoroSuub Keypad Prototype Salvage, etc
    TIA

    0
    • pre-epic is Mk IV sorosuub keypad x20. Bunch of Mk 1 Chedak Comlinks. Mk 4 Chiewab Hypo Syringe (the one that needs 20 mk IV Chiewab hypo syringe prototype salvage). Epic is Mk V sorosuub keypad x20, Mk 4 chiewab hypo syringe, Mk 6 fabritech data pad, and mk 4 fabritech data pad. The other two at epic level at level 64 restriction (Mk 7 hololens and Mk 3 chedak comlink)

      4
  37. Kylo has the most unique design in the game, with his own stand-by pose and attack animations. That can also be said about his abilities. In fact, he is one of the 3 with 4 non-leader abilities, making him one of the more “resourceful” character in the game. His abilities are designed so that they work best when he is focused. (which is usually when he is the last man standing, because AI seems to ignore characters with “counter” buff) He can down 2~3 characters of equal strength when things proc just right. Despite being First Order character, he doesn’t really synergize with any of them. He is a loner, who can fit in any squad due to decent damage, HP, and heal-block but also doesn’t fit into any squad due to lack of synergies. Because he shines at the darkest times, he is bad for PVE contents when you are aiming for a three-star win.

    0
    • You forget that phasma has her leadership ability that synergizes with his first order subtype. With her as a leader, him attacking gives a roughly 30% chance for another ally to assist. That’s almost 1 in 3 attacks. Definitely good synergy if you’re abusing bonus attacks. Though you’re right that his power is pretty high when he’s being attacked (aoe or focus). His ability to do 175% damage when below 50% hp is dumb. I regularly one shot hero’s with that ability.

      5
  38. I got a 55 Luke in gear 7 and 55 Ren in gear 6. All Ren’s abilities are at rank 3, and lukes are all over the place (one is 4, a couple 3, leader is 2).

    Anyway, Ren has much more HP but hits quite a bit less. Though his Outrage ability does a little more damage than Lukes crits, so that kind of makes up for it.

    He seems very strong, though I hate that I need a stupid piece of gear from section 6 of the single player campaign before you can get him into epic gear.
