  1. On level 47, he is my main damage dealer. Under General Ackbar leading he get tons of free attack. I still waiting for pilot and jedi master version.

  2. Anraeth Erith (My SWGoH name)

    Luke Skywalker is so awesome. He was the First character i promoted to 4 stars and hes powerful. No however hes only the fourth strongest, my first being Chewbacca, second Jawa, and third Geonosian Soldier.
    this is only because Luke is only at gear level one.

    5
  3. Would you farm Luke from 1B (8 cantina credits) or 5A (12 cantina credits)? Which is most value for money?

    • MANDALORIAN THE RED

      dunno whether both battles have different drop percentage for shards but i doubt they are, becoz if they are that would be unfair considering the game doesn’t tell u about it. in the case of shipment points though, how many points do you get from 5-A? try to divide 12 credits with that and 8 credits with the 13 points you get from 1-B and compare which one’s got the better ratio

      0
  4. We now know that jedi luke is coming, because Han Solo and ST Han are the same person, yet different versions of themselves. This is basically confirmation that EA will put in different versions of characters.

    0
  5. I refuse to keep farming ranks up in pvp until I can have a challenge. I am refusing to play this game until I can pick anyone at any level to play against. Gl hf

  6. How to submit info about adding Human class for Luke’s description?

    3
  7. I think I may be crazy, but I’ve been using Luke’s lead at level 6 (41% tenacity) in conjunction with poe, poggle lumi and GS, and it just works!

    Poe’s resistance is close to 100%, makes peeps like sid or dooku’s basics, well with the self heal they mitigate them slightly.

    Luke’s special will hit 10k with offence up 7*, and I feel like it’s a crazy idea using his lead but 40% really takes out peeps like Phasma, sid, asajj, dhaka’s stuns ALL resisted…

    0
  8. Quite to my surprise, i took this Luke up to 7* and maxed his gears, he’s the perfect anti sid or anti Dooku.
    By himself dont bother, but with poggle- he hits 9-10k special and one shots characters like sid 9/10 (with his crit chance up) and Dooku 7/10, though i havent battled a 7* Dooke to my knowledge yet.
    His downfall is his 10k health and 114 speed, but who goes for Luke first?

    Works well with Poe, Poggle and 2 other glass canons, you’ll be picking peeps off very quickly.

    • Who’s better Luke sky walker or 5’s esspically for the long run…..?

      0
      • I’ve only got 4* 5’s, but from what I’ve hit he can be awkward in a Phasma or Bariss team.
        I feel like im bias but I’d choose Luke purely for his special and him being easier to farm than 5’s… I’d certainly farm poe or Qui Gon before 5’s,
        Depends what you think is best for your settup, but Luke’s droprate makes him a lot easier to farm in the long run.

        0
      • Luke is certainly better than Fives. Fives has a good counter chance, but has next to no offense, while Luke does amazing damage. My 6* Lv. 55 Gear VII Luke paired with Sidious leader does amazing damage. Also, he’s better than many glass cannons (Rey, QGJ) because of his health.

        5
        • Dude, Rey’survivability is WAY higher than Luke’s just in virtue of her semi-constant Foresight. If you use her well, she’s hard to kill. Luke goes down like a bowling pin.

          0
  9. He’s a mediocre individual, but just really doesn’t do a lot to help many teams. Other characters do this much damage and have real abilities too (Lumi is a good example). The fact that he’s not a jedi and can hit Sid is one of the only redeeming features in its own way, but then who didn’t pick up this game for the first time and say “Luke’s got a gun?? You gotta be kidding…”

    • THERMAN FREEMAN

      Yea, one of the most powerful Jedi, he’s got a rifle, dumb

      0
      • This is not Jedi Luke, it’s Luke from before he even met Obi-Wan. Rewatch ANH and you’ll see this is exactly the rifle he used against Jawas.
        Jedi Luke will be released later as a separate character.

  10. My roster is limited due to being FTP so I really don’t have a lot of other characters to compare to but I have him at 7* gear V and I am not disappointed 1 bit. I wouldn’t go as far as saying he’s op since he’s not the fastest but boy does he hit hard. I guess the next best option early on was to farm geo soldier but come on, who the heck plays a star wars game to use a geo soldier?

  11. I want the jedi luke, the one that made him famous to me, in black where he whooped his father’s ass!

    3
    • He didn’t whoop anyone’s ass. The last time he faced Vader he wasn’t fighting back, just holding him up to make The Emperor’s plan work making him angry and desperate while watching his friends dying and the rebellion fall. If ever Vader fought him back for real he wouldn’t stand a chance, obviously.
      Watch Episode VI again.

    • Well, the Jedi Luke in this game is only found in Campaign, and he wears the outfit from Cloud City.

      The Luke in this game is the Luke from Tatooine. (A New Hope)

  12. my not upgraded luke is nothing special but the potential for a crit synergy is exciting. I like the flavor actually, the latent potential of the kit makes sense with luke’s story line

    4
  13. Mega Dookie IMO. Sure he hits hard but he’s got average speed and in most arena he gets Nuked by Sidious and other fast characters before he gets a chance to do anything. I recommend investing in someone else from SCB.

    2
  14. Luke has been a very surprising asset to my team. With Sids lead with 20% chance and 12% damage, whenever he gets 25% crit chance he can do good damage. Has high Agility so his crits hit similar to Vaders special, and his stun makes him the perfect solution to a Dooku.
    Range for me is 5-7k + stun on his special.

    5
  15. Well, he is good, I have to say that, but without any buffs its a OK damage in end game when he crits, not bad and not good, just OK. Early game he’s great, mid game to end game… meh. IG-86 is more versatile and can do more damage than Luke, it’s easier to get too and uses crit as a main resource, just for a comparasion. With Sidious (as a leader) can be easier for him to get crits and a bonus damage. But, without Sid will be veeeeery difficult to put him in your squad and make he usable.
    I will rate 4/5 cus, without Sidious (as a leader¬≤) or another leader with crit bonuses, he’s worthless.

  16. I got lucky and pulled a 4-star Luke from a Chromium card. At first I wasn’t too excited as this is a pre-Jedi version of Luke with the long gun he had at the very beginning of Episode IV, but once I started putting some points into him, I realized how ridiculously powerful his offense is. It really relies on critical hits for maximum effect, but fortunately, a lot of the gear he equips adds critical strike rating. Also, once you level up “Draw a Bead” enough, his critical chance goes up quite a bit more. Before you know it, you’ll be one-shotting enemies with him. I love taking him into the challenge with Tarkin and Veers, destroying one of the droids, and then hitting a critical that lands for like, 15k+ damage. The only downside to such powerful attacks is that it’s much more frustrating when enemies dodge them!

    5
  17. Compared with Sidious passive this guy deals significant Damage to everything!
    His effects to impale the target with DoT, Stun and Defense Reduction are quite awesome. After his passive is on Level 5 he nearly crits every round.

  18. jedi luke wont probably come out till the next movie

  19. Guys relax they’re releasing more content. I believe sidious is even going to have a force Lightning version of himself. ***Removed Force Awakens Spoiler***

    0
  20. I got Luke early, and his damage has been awesome. It got even better once I got Sidious and started using him as my leader. I use Luke like an assassin…on a lucky shot he can one-shot a lot of guys, and even when he doesn’t kill them, he takes most opponents hit points down substantially.

  21. I mean, u play against rebel (jedi) Luke… but you don’t get to be him?

    0
  22. Why is there no jedi Luke? Lame.

    0
    • Yeah, they should’ve just released 500 different characters all at once….5 or 10 versions of each character only makes sense right? I’m thinking they must plan on releasing more later. Yeah, that must be it.

      5
      • The game icon literally has Jedi Luke and you don’t even get to play him… You fight him in a very arbitrary, unimportant level. They have multiple generic nightsisters, Hoth rebels, etc. – I don’t think it’s weird to ask for two Lukes (or just Jedi Luke).

        0
        • Its not wierd it is just definitely coming in the future, they have a number of iconic characters now and if the Jedi luke was here we wouldn’t pay any attention to this version of Luke, he will be coming along soon.

          Overall I like this hero, he is my Cantina farm right now works well with crit which is always something I like to focus on in RPGs anyway
