  1. She is an absolute must have!
    Pros:
    Resurrect
    Absorbs hits somewhat well for a healer
    Has great stun ability!

    Cons:
    At 4 stars her cool down is too long for heal.

    Try this-Pair her with Talia and Phasma and you will have a Seal Team 6 force.
    Stuns out the ying yang, turn meter madness and you will be unstoppable.
    (Within reason)

    5
  2. she is very good. she can stun many times and reset turn meters. You can evade minimum two attacks.

    5
    • I have 1 issue with her. Her AI is horrendous as a healer. She will not group heal until someone has died. Her resurrection takes precidence over almost dead living toons. For that she deserves 4 stars.

      0
  3. I’m rocking daka, phasma (leader), luminara, kylo and vade.
    I used to have sidius there instead of daka. But now with kylo ren I replaced sidius and brought in daka.

    She is an amazing addition. Her stuns have saved me countless times. Especially against characters like dooku.

    Her health starts off a bit squishy but get her to gear lvl 7 and lvl 55+ and she sure holds her own.
    Plus easy to farm

    5
    • She is not easy to farm. The rest I agree with 😉 I just drew a 4* from the bronze. She’s not too hard to get to lvl 8 which is nice. I plan on pairing he with asajj as leader. She will eventually be faster than dooku(her gear boosts her speed quite a bit). Then we’ll see what’s up!

      5
  4. She has a restraining order against me because I love her and am obsessed with her and I want a lock of her hair. None better. When you see her high stun rate and resurrection ability in action, you’ll get a tattoo of her on your arm like I did.

    5
  5. I got lucky early on and landed her from a bronze pack. Been using her as my core player ever since (gone with a Nightsister team). She’ll be 7* tomorrow and fully geared.

    Best thing is her ressurect. Those stupid AOE ridden campaign battles are no trouble to 3 star because by the end you just keep using her heal to bring your lost characters back. Victory screen will show less than 3 stars but if you have all five alive at the end it’ll give you 3 in the campaign screen.

    She’s also awesome in arena/GW. Your opponent must target her first, and she can take a beating (not sure why people say she has average health). If they don’t, anyone they kill is a candidate to be revived. You can even revive 2+ characters with one heal.

    0
  6. So, I always saw her character and thought “Well she’s got low health and her attack is low, so she can’t really be that great”. WRONG. Have her with Captain Phasma and Luke and end up stunning half of the opposing team 50% of the time. Great character, and the revives?!!! yes

    5
  7. Nightsister Elder is +5 Defense at LvL 2, not +10.

    Also, a general point is that I’ve noticed that the Lvl 1 abilities are often inaccurately described (on the game, not here) and so Lvl 2 seems like a step in the wrong direction.

    5
  8. HOW THE FUCK DID SHE STUN 4 OF MY CHARS IN PVP

    0
    • That’s the reason I use her in PVP, even if I had stronger characters. Sometimes she does multiple-stuns and that’s a game-changer. I hate Dooku and it’s a pleasure when she freezes him, I can then attack the bastard without his damn counter (<;

      0
      • Heck yeah. Stun dooku and sidius. So you don’t get countered all day and lose your healing ability. Then eveyone else juat gets picked off one by one by a full 5 member squad. Too easy.

        0
    • i very likely hood is you face a team with Captain Plasma as leader, and someone attack before Old Daka to trigger her as support attack, then Old Daka immediately attack again on her own

      Possible of ending up with 4 stun lol

      0
  9. Just got her now at 4 stars and already pretty hot. Will farm her and she will make a very good addition to Dark side battles as a healer (Tania kills herself to save others and that’s pretty lame), and also in PVP and Galaxy to stun, heal, revive. Her power at level 50 is higher than my Luke at…58. No joke, looks like a winner to me! p.s.: sometimes she plays 2-3 more turns than others, people mentioned Phasma as a leader with her (that is my setup), but I still don’t get how she plays that often. Not complaining though (<;

    5
    • Phasmas ability causes assist attacking. More often than not she ends up being the assist. So she can easily get 3 turns per a turn meter.

      0
  10. Straight gangster. She’s a must. Simply needed to get through dark side.
    easy five stars rating, simply that good.
    I suggest not farming her 5th star until after he gear is up to 7. Since by then you’ll know if you want he for arena, and Arena is where that 5th star is actually needed, also you’ll have high level cantina unlocked.

    5
  11. Summary: The best definition of a Support Healer can be.

    Pros:
    – Her basic attack has an awesome stun, that combined with her good potency, armor penetration and chance, can absolutely turn the tides of the game in your favor;
    – Revive both on heal and as an unique passive is simply gorgeous. Many times on PvP and Arena I was able to save and win battles due to this revive;
    – Her fairly good speed allows her to make the wonderful stun early on the match, stopping that powerful DPS or some dangerous toon.

    Cons:
    – Basic attack has poor damage, although slightly better than Talia;
    – Farming for shards in actually grinding. Need a lot of time and patience;
    – Health pool is just average and she can die early in the match due to this;
    – Party heal is bellow par compared to some other healer toons.

    Conclusion:
    She’s a difficult character to level up and master, however she pays awesomely with her stuns and revives. When in a nightsister team with Asajj Ventress leading, she’s absolutely a beast. Differently from other healers in the game, she contributes more effectively to the match, doing both CC and revives and it’s not unusual you come to the end of a fight with a victory due specifically to her actions.

    Wished I could give 0.5 stars, however will rate her 4* only due to how difficult is to star her up and her bellow par damage and average health pool.

    4
    • Pretty much this.

      In overall she is battle-worthy at 5 stars, what is a huge difference from other characters (namely Dooku or Maul). The overall health pool does not increase enough with stars to make me drop other projects to full 7* her, neither damage does, so she is right now a long term project.

      The stunn its simply awesome and make some characters virtually useless (Kylo and Luminara mainly) due to a constant serie of disabling turns.

      I run her in Arena with: Ventress 7* leading, Talia 5* (cause Daka ONLY use her healing in defense when an ally is dead), Sidious 7*, and either Luminara 7* (defense) or Nightsister Initiate 7* (offense, and as a side note, this character is ONLY battle-worthy at 7*, but is easy to farm in Galactic War, just be carefull to not level the 2nd skill beyond level 5 or she will be useless suddenly due to a bug that drops the crit chance to normal in level 6, both her 1st and 3rd are fine and really nice).

      My plan is to switch the 2 non-Nightsisters characters for Poe, so the healing and auto-healing, couple with some turn-meter and expose help for Asajj AoE, can actually pay-off. Full idea is 4xNightsisters listed+Poe. Not specially in the mood of farming Acolite due to a combo of low damage and pointlessly hard to use skills.

      I regret the Yoda challenges for not allowing me to star her up, and the fact that 2 of my needed characters comes from the same shipment, Cantina, but in Arena I barely notice the difference between other teams 7* ones and mine. That and the fact that Im the only top 100 using Asajj as leader (100/100 F2P here), makes my Daka ALWAYS goes first (Dooku max speed–>161, Daka max–>136 + 26 (speed boost from Ventress)–>162).

      As soon as I get my Poe started up, will return to her. Its the best, and probably most needed, Dark Side character, being the only healer in DS that does not cannibalize herself to do so. The listed offensive team up beated ALL the DS normal and hard missions from 7-A onwards.

      5
  12. This skill is bad listed:
    Level 7
    Chant of Resurrection – All allies recover Health equal to 30% of Old Daka’s Max health, with a 40% chance to revive defeated allies at 1 Health.

    At level 7 the chances to resurrect are 35%

    0
  13. I went up against her and her Phasma leader in Galaxy War. She assisted with a double stun and immediately followed up with an attack of her own for another double stun. 4 team members stunned in the space of 2 turns. The ridiculousness of it all was worth a good laugh.

    5
  14. Never have had a complaint with her. Even grind farming out, I am half way to 5 stars, unlocking her is helping me unlock a solid B-team of Rebels. This is great for me as she had gotten me Luke, Finn, 2 promotions and as I keep pushing her star rank she will get me Kylo too. I gave up on card packs it’s a money and crystal sink, I myself do not like mystery box, I rather work/play each day burn a little crystals and get a shipment a day. Takes about two weeks of daily play to get her. Less if you pay to play, but recharges get expensive after the first initial 100 crystal cost.

    She is tough to use, her scripting calls for attacking more than healing. Even when people are dead she will attack unless she is in Yellow, auto attack mode flaw imo, same with Sidious the game will choose AoE attack over single attack, which is dumb scripting.

    It’s a horrible script and wish I could rewrite my AI bots for order of attacks. I am positive my Sidious, and Phasma kill themselves AoE attacking Dooku, Kit, First Order Trooper and Ima Gun, and I dislike it because I myself wouldn’t and don’t AoE unless a non-counter guy is there.

    Low health is a problem but gear her and she’ll live long enough to survive first wave of AoE attacks. If she does live g’luck to the team because they they just wasted their big hits and are open to deaths with a proper team.

  15. What lv does she have to be for lv8 imsightful blow to unlock? Currently at lv5 and i dont want to waste precious ability mat3 if she can’t even get lv8. Thanks.

    5
  16. I went up against her in Arena and got just trashed. She must have rez’ed 4 people before I dropped her and I swore she came back from the dead again.

    I’d definitely use her if I got a drop. Im not sure about farming 80 shards. That’s brutal.

    5
  17. When her stuns work, they are a game changer. As others have mentioned, adding her to a Phasma team can let her lock the opposition down. Alone, she’s managed to shutdown 3 characters at once before, but that is very rare.

    If you watch how she acts in auto-attack situations, you will realize that Daka is not a healer. She uses it as a revive once a character dies. Keep that in mind when building an arena team because most of the fights will be other players attacking you. She loses one star because of this and the fact that she is not what I’d consider a bread and butter character. She’s great to have, but not needed for many team builds the way Luminara or Sidius are.

  18. OMFG,
    this old hag just dropped from Bronzium Free Card !!!
    I didnt even know that was possible !!!
    Now, im at 35/65 on shards. 5* it is 😀
    this game is awesome !!!

    0
    • LOL, that’s the same way I got her and let me just say how she performs in the game: EPIC!

      She saves (ehrm, resurrects) lives a lot when I’m playing in the squad arena and the galactic war. I can barely count how many times she saved me on numerous occasions from being defeated.

      Her stuns are WICKED and B-R-U-T-A-L Af; she literally CONTROLS the fate of my team and the other team. I barely lose with her as she has become a PERMANENT member of my squad. She can HEAL,RESURRECT,AND STUN people from the game. If that’s not a worthy enough description for you,I don’t know what else will. She helps build momentum with attackers and is a vital support in the game.

      You better get before EA nerfs her because she is just STUNNING (XD pun intended).

  19. Verfallen Aingealis

    A must for any Dark Side campaign right now.

    She’ll be on your team mostly because of her control, and not her heals out of it however. Jedi healer are much more potent, however she is currently in my squad for arena/GW as a controller. There are better options, but she is a nice early game addition to make through Squad Cantina token.

    Should definitely be the first one you farm.

    0
    • How is she a nice Early game addition? Cantina shipments take a very long time to farm add to that it takes 80 shards. With a free account and using my earned gems on only cantina and reg energy it is taking over 50 levels to get her (free account is lvl 51 and she is the only cantina character farmed).
      8 energy to get 13 cantina credits, takes 400 to get 5 shards. One must battle 462 times just to unlock.
      She is a very great character but of the farmable characters she is the hardest to unlock.

      5
  20. Old Daka is amazing! She has very high health and speed if you manage to get her 6 star+ and we’ll geared. An often overlooked fact is that she has extremely high potency + intelligence meaning that her stuns will rarely fail. You can disable 1-2 enemies each round if you are lucky. Once you get her hp high enough to survive the first round the enemy is in trouble or better yet couple her with Poe to hide behind his taunt. I am sure you will find her loads in arena once more people have her 6-7 star.

    5
  21. She is not a good healer and not a good fighter but her abilities to stun two enemies and revive her comrades are simply gorgeous.

    I always use her with Luminara Unduli and Asajj Ventress in a squad. Three changes to stun an enemy each turn, great healing capability and a good offensive.

    With Captain Phasma as a squad leader you even enhance your chances to stun an enemy even further.

    5
  22. My favorite character in the game right now because of her workhorse ability to work miracles in pve and pvp with her two stuns on just a basic attack. At 5* she can crit for 2k also. One note is that at level 6, her chance to revive defeated enemies is actually 35% not 40%. Also, just a general note is that healing can still proc free assists with Phasma. Also another thing is if she self-revives, and the opponent had a bonus attack, I think she dies again (died 2x in a row against FOTP earlier in arena).

    5
  23. She able to revive, which isnt listed in any of her skills. And she is very fast.

    0
  24. I’m a big fan of Old Daka. Her ability to stun multiple enemies with her basic attack is incredibly helpful and has helped me turn around many a battle. Once you fully gear her, she’s quite fast, which can help you stun-lock a lot of bosses in PvE.

    5
  25. Very very good healer, but is a little squishy like count Dooku. Her 55% stun chance is a God send especially if you can give her out of turn attacks.

    PROS
    + resurrect fallen allies and herself
    + 55% stun chance added to basic attack
    + great leader for a nightsister squadron

    Cons
    – lowest hp in the healer category
    – low max he means not the best at healing but it’s still gained hp

    Bottom line: great for offensive squads and extra attack teams, bad for defensive teams and vulnerable to 2 turn deaths

    5
  26. She revived herself and fallen teammates. Definetely you want her in your team. She have heal but only recover 25% of her max health.

    5
  27. Idk the reason EA make Old Daka has too high Spec Dam,she never use this stat…. But she is still a good hero.
