  1. Mace really needs to be reworked to be more powerful as he is the second most powerful jedi being a second to yoda he should really have an anti Sith ability one because no jedi have any and two because of his lightsaber form vaapad which works well against dark side users I think they should get change his leader ability into a unique one being whenever a sith damages mace that sith receives half of that damage in return and his shatter point ability should stay the same except they should let u choose who the expose is on and that’s all they need to do to rework him idk if this will make him OP but I mean he is really powerful in the movies and Star Wars universe

    0
    • Mace in the movies let things ger to him thinking he was better. Then Skywalker, and ive got baited before order 66 Mace could had order 67 go in to effect ehcih would counter (order 66)… Do I love the guy ya, I wish and i think he was much stronger and possibly the stronger Jedi, to live because of Vapaad, but I’m balance on what’s he ofdres… I think if his leadership abilitt l.still with him until late game on some teams

      4
  2. Mace’s Shatterpoint is still an issue. The toon he picks is less random than you think. I’d say a good 50-75% of the time, he targets the tank with it. This sucks because you rarely target the tank until close to last.

    I figure since Mace is a tank, Shatterpoint should not only do damage, but take the health of the toon that’s targeted. This makes for more incentive to attack the targeted toon. I cant tell you how many times I have to ignore Shatterpoint because I’m busy attacking some other toon and trying to kill him. It’s annoying.

    If his HP pool was much higher and he constantly self heals with Shatterpoint, it makes Mace far more viable as a tank.

    0
  3. I’ve found a pretty decent role for Mace. On my PVP server there are several teams with duel tanks. QGJ alone cant keep up with the taunting.
    I lucked out and got Mace from my one and only Chromium buy so I leveled him up and modestly geared him.
    I made a team consisting of QGJ(L), Mace, GS, Chewie, and Luminara. The battles pretty much go like this:

    1. I get to go first and wipe out whatever glass cannon they have with QGJ and GS.

    2. They taunt

    3. Fuck your taunt…thx to Mace.

    4. I shit all over their healer, or take out RG if he’s one of their tanks.

    5. I taunt with Chewie, followed by a heal usually

    6. Now there is less targets, making Shatterpoint far more useful. I use it to destory whichever toon Mace targets.

    7. One by one I take them down with QGJ and GS, dispelling any stupid taunts along the way.

    In this particular scenario, the Mace, QGJ dynamic is extremely useful. They dont give a fuck about tanks.

    Worth mentioning, I’m using this team and am consistently under rank #100 in PVP.

    4
  4. First antisith canditat. No one sith can’t evase from his attack (so anti Sidius pers.)

    0
  5. To really make him better like everyone wants, have shatter point apply the shatter point effect at some point. It could be a 10% chance for balance, but it would make him a better overall character and have a special characteristic.

    0
  6. Please make mace better this is disrespectful in a the movies he crushed sidius and everyone else he fought. He needs to do 10% health damage to all sith he attacks making him super specialized and or just make him hit harder and be a bit faster. Or has a 35% counter chance. In star wars lore he is more powerful then 99% of all character. Macceeeee for president.

    0
    • No.
      If you’ve read the book you’d know that he didn’t ‘crush’ Sidious.

      Aside from that I’d too like them too make him just a bit better.
      He worked fine for me. (free2play player lvl 40)

      4
    • If you knew anything about Mace, you’d know he had training in the dark side. This could possibly confer a 10% defense from Sith attacks, but nothing more than that will ever happen in the future.

      0
  7. Still needs something to really set him apart and make him go from alright to good. Maybe something like Smite calls an ally for an assist if it dispels a status.

    0
  8. I don’t understand the Human class at all. So Mace Windu and Luke Skywalker are Humans, Princess Leia and Qui-Gon Jinn aren’t?
    First Order Stormtrooper is Human, Stormtrooper is not?
    Grand Moff Tarkin is Human, General Veers is not?
    Seems all over the place to me.

  9. If you gave him +10 speed every time an ally was attacked this would make him a tank worth having, and don’t think it would mess up the synergies

    0
  10. Hello royal guard! I are Mace. I dispel you stuff!

    4
  11. Why do they label him as a TANK when he doesn’t even have a taunt??
    This is his real downfall.

    0
    • Because a tank doesn’t need a taunt. It just needs to be able to hit like a tank and be able to take a lot of hits.

      You’re thinking he needs a reason for players to not leave him for last, which is true, they need to either make his shatterpoint AOE or give him more damage like he deserves.

      5
      • Uh I never leave him last. Even on teams that have a sidious or QGJ since his first ability above 50% health is powerful but if you leave him at yellow he just heals so I kill him first

        0
      • @shum thank you finally someone who knows what they are talkin about, “why is he a tank he doesnt have a taunt” ridiculousness, best to get all the facts for assuming or saying somethin, n your right

        0
  12. For PvE, he is awesome. His leader ability makes for an excellent jedi squad. The new chance to expose is devastating against bosses and elites. 5* rating for PvE. For PvP, he is so/so. Too inconsistent with expose, and often the target is behind a tank and unreachable. However, the dispel is still useful, and his damage is not bad. His main downfall, though, is his mediocre speed, and lack of crowd control. No stun, and no ability block. 4* PvP rating.

    4
  13. How many stars when unlocking him?

    0
  14. Good start I think on shatterpoint! I love the new invincible assault, makes him much more durable. Shatterpoint is to random, but also very useful when fighting aoe or damager heavy teams (when they all need to die first lol) so long as Yoda is protecting him :) That satisfies my cannon issues. Keep faith and learn good tactics! Jedis ftw!

    4
  15. Mace went from completely useless to middle pack toon. He still needs a small buff. His shatterpoint is almost useless, way to random to count on and; way to easy to counter. Taunt, rng, tenacity, etc.

    I really hope they get this toon right as he is awesome!! I mean Samuel L Jackson cool.

    Right now he is forgettable. I have him at lvl 70, max gear.

    1
    • My mace is also at 7*s. I stared,lvl and geared him up because I’m a fan of his.

      Again, middle low toon. He is a good meat shield but not much else. For arena, there are at least 5 better Jedi options.

      0
      • what 5 jedi are better than mace? lets consider the ones that are relatively obtainable (excludes anakin, old ben, kit fisto, aayla etc)

        0
        • As of now, and not including the “cash-only” jedi; Qui-gon, Luminara, Bariss, Yoda, would be clear imo. Beyond that; JC, Gun Di, and even Ahsoka (though only in a Bariss-led team) could be debatable.

          0
          • blah. It is moot now. Mace is a jedi B-team for galactic war, at best now. Ben is available, and Ahsoka got her modification sooner than anticipated. I can see no universe in which he fits into even a F2P jedi squad (until someone calls in an order-66).

            0
          • i dont understand why ahsoka gets all this if shes on a team stuff, like my ahsoka is my second best character at level 62 4* & does more damage then everyone on my team n all the characters i use except my 7* lumi(shes on 7 n didnt get much stat improvements by the way) yet i have a lot of characters who have more attack power then ahsoka which is funny seeing how shes only second to lumi, n pretty much all her attacks are criticals n even when it rarely isnt her attack is still high, havent gotten mace yet, im workin on kylo in catina, only 31 more shards, should get him in a few weeks wit catina, then imma go after mace, i will comment on how mace is when i get him

            0
    • His new buffs make him way better now. He now has great anti-tank synergies with QGJ (Poe, RG, Chewie, and HK get rekt with Smite and Shatterpoint) and his basic does bonus damage at 50% hp. Vaapad is kinda outclassed by Jedi Knight Anakin tho.

      5
  16. I was lucky to get Mace at the start of the game, so I’ve been running with him at tier 5, but now that they buffed him with shatter point instead of heroic sacrifice, and made his basic attack much better, he rivals Lumi and Sidius on my team.

    5
    • Your sure about that? I don’t think he rivals lumi and sid except or fan boyism, though I am a fan boy of mace myself, I wish he rivaled those guys.

      0
      • I have found his shatterpoint awkward if I leave him till last, he’ll take half the health from my tank.

        Not every scenario requires lumi or sid, think beyond the box.

        0
      • Out of Sidius, Luminari, Windu, Old Ben, and Qui Gon on my team (same team for GW and arena) each has a fairly solid attack, the only with fairly low health are Sid and QG, and each have something they bring to the table.

        No one target’s Windu first. You go for Sidius, QG, or maybe Lumi. So Windu and Ben are left chipping away and debuffing. Windu is great because he not only can remove a taunt, but his regular attack either heals him or does 50% more damage, depending on his health, and both have the chance to do another 20% character health damage with shatterpoint. I just wish the computer would target shatterpoint more often, so he would use that when someone is attacking my squad on arena.

        5
  17. Definitely going to build him for my jedi team to get Yoda and also has potential for GW with the nice self-heal.

    While changing Heroic Sacrifice to Shatterpoint, is it also possible to change his leader ability to Vaapad? It’s a minor typo, but it bugs me. 😛

    0
  18. Hey guys! No more bullshit of heroic sacrifice, now it’s frag point. For my Mace 5* 61 lv. That has lvl3 frag point he has 30% in every turn expose a random enemy and if he attacks he gets more 16% of turn meter. The basic attack also changed – now im lvl 5- and if he’s above 50% health the attack does 50% more damage, and if its below it grants 60% health of the damage delivered. Smite and Vaapad still the same. I dont think the speed changed. But gave a better fighting chance for the character!
    I still use it alot, and still like his style.
    4/5

  19. Good morning!! I think SWGOH updated Windu. Now his first skill deal 50% damage if his hp > 50% and, recover 60% of his damage to his HP if his HP is < 50%, his passive skill is also changed from heroic sacrifice to shatterpoints, which give 30% to expose a random enememies on start of his turns, and if he success he gain 18% (or something turn meters). Well hope it helps. since i havent maxed his skilled too. :)

  20. Working on him now in lew of the incoming update.

    Does anyone know what kind of Purple Equipment Items he needs to reach level 8 & 9? Would like to know what I should start farming for!

    Thanks!

  21. Allow me my Nerd soapbox a moment..

    Mace Windu is a JEDI MASTER! In some SW lore, Master Windu has taken on entire droid armies with only the force as his ally as he had lost his light saber.
    If you take a strictly cannon approach, Master Windu defeated Darth sidous single handedly. Two other Jedi fell immediately to sidous’s attack, yet Mace defended against his best shots and, in the end, was prepared to execute him!! Little Annie saved him at the last second.

    So long story short, please show Master Windu a little respect and rebalance his skills! #RespectforWindu

    • Concur with your above accounting and why doesn’t he have a Shatterpoint ability

      0
    • 100% correct! Mace Windu is a bad a$%. He really does need more respect and some serious tweaking of his abilities bc at the very least his unique ability makes him worse. To make that one good he would need another ability that makes you want to kill him 1st and he doesn’t have one (shatterpoint, although it would be very op if had 100% infliction, is a good example of something that makes him a top priority target and only then does heroic sacrifice have any value despite the fact that it makes no sense with his character). Sorry for the rant, it’s just frustrating that EA put in so much care for other characters to make them true to lore as possible and just dropped the ball on one of the more powerful Jedi.

      0
    • Agreed. Please buff/edit him.

      Purple power!

  22. Ok, I don’t have much room to complain because he almost always ends up on my A teams… But, there are problems.

    Good:
    – hits like a truck when def up.
    – great hp in general.
    – removes taunt and deals good damage here as well.

    Bad:
    – smite never works when you absolutely need it
    – vapaad is nowhere near a competitive team leader ability (so a waste of a skill)
    – heroic sacrifice is just plain horrible. Just… Bad…

    Suggestions:
    – he is not a tank. Taunt would make heroic sacrifice at least slightly more viable. And a few more hp might help as well.
    – invincible assault wouldn’t be bad if the % were swapped (75% to receive def up and 45-50% extra dmg).
    -heroic sacrifice: let him sacrifice his boosts to boost others in some way. Or give him a taunt that boosts allies turn meter…. Something.

    You have the BMF Jedi master here… Show some respect.

    • APissedJediMaster

      Vapaad give your team up to 20% more damage and crit chance how is that bad?

      4
      • Fair question. The fact that is Jedi only is the first problem. It is a solid ability by all means; but when compared to Lumi, Barriss, and Ima… Just not competitive enough. Mace doesn’t have a decent synergy other than his basic attack which self buffs def and dmg. His other skills are a slap dash hodge lodge that holds him back from being a truly awesome character. And I love smite, it’s a great taunt killer; but I would be happy if they traded dmg for a greater proc chance.

        0
  23. I really like his ability smite, but he doesn’t work well, too slow to make an effective to unbalance any fight.

    3
  24. Why is Mace, one of the greatest jedi ever, one of the slowest characters in the game, when he is compared to the speed of Sidious in the books and movies. Also, his unique skill should have been + 25% or 40% chance to taunt for 1 turn, then we talking.

    3
  25. Why does Windu even have HEROIC SACRIFICE. Did he ever sacrifice in the canon? I thought he blindly led the Jedi Order to death, along with equally blind but not equally green, Yoda. He should have an ability that constantly gives him DEFENSE UP instead of weird HEROIC SACRIFICE. No one ever focuses him, he would always die the last. He essentially has a blank skill. He’s a tank without taunt.

    0
  26. Is the 20% offense like 20% more damage?

    4
  27. i really do like this character, but i feel he is slightly underpowered, for example, smite sometimes does not removes the positive status effects, i use smite to get rid of chewbaccas taunt, so when it doesnt it is very frustrating

    4
    • Characters have a chance to resist being debuffed, depending on RNG and also their tenacity rating (ability to resist being debuffed) so it doesn’t work 100% of the time.

      Mace is a great character though, if he gets his armor up buff from his regular attack and hit again he’s actually stronger than an equally levelled and skilled Anakin, if you offense up he hits like a truck.

      0
      • “Hits like a truck!?” You mean he hits like he’s stuck! He’s the worst toon in the game. I have him at LV 63 5*lv8gear and I regret every piece I got him. I just kept hoping he would get better but he does nothing but watch his comrades die then gets killed himself. I guess they wanted to be like the movie, an overhyped “master” who stands around helplessly until all of the other Jedi are exterminated then goes our like a punk by himself. God he sucks dead men’s balls.
