  1. In my opinion it is over rated character. Everything is about luck with Leia. One day I made on Tier V boss 140k dmg with her but normaly I make 40k because she attacks one time and no critics. For example IG-86 makes all the time at least 80k. Of course she is great when she hits 3 times with critics but I have her full gear, mods for critical dmg and critical chance and 7 stars for like a month. I have seen 3 critical attacks in raw few times in PVP or GW. Normaly Luminara or QGJ is just better damage dealer. I just wait genosian soldier to reach 6 stars and I will get rid of her from my lineup.

    That’s what she is.
    Combine her with the leaders Ackbar, Sidious, Dooku, or especially Phasma for INSANE results.
    Awesome synergy with Qui-Gon Jinn.
    Is able to cloak and thus nullify counter attacks.
    I use her in my Hair Trigger Lineup: Phasma(L), Princess Leia, First Order TIE Pilot(or Qui-Gon), Cad Bane(Or Dooku), and Aayla Secura. I’ve seen them kill almost any hero up to 20khp/20kprot in a bonus combo. Example: Qui-Gon(Skill – Harminous Assault), bonus atk Phasma(def down effect), assist atk Aayla(assist bonus strike), Phasma again with bonus trigger, and finally assist atk Leia(bonus attacks x2). It’s fucking rare but kills anything. Usually a 3-4 combo from Qui-Gon’s skill will occur here. Leia does an average of 2400-15000 dmg per atk for me (effects and bonus depending)

  3. Total freaking wrecking machine!
    And that’s all that needs to be said.

  4. Getting her up now because of the new update with her in arena store. Wanting to make a team with her and most likely Ackbar lead. How does Ackbar (L), Leia, Rey, Lando, and Royal Guard sound? I kinda want to build this but im not sure about Lando. I’ve only heard that his AoE special is really good. I could also go the other route with two taunters like Royal Guard and ST Han and disregard Lando but im not sure. Let me know what you think guys thanks.

    5
    • for arena, I think the best option is Ackbar, Leia, Han, Lando and HR Scout. Tons of criticals, Han can taunt which takes the pressure off the rest of the team and Ackbar is extremely efficient against Vader, Sid and droids. I would personally take HRS over Rey just beacuse I alredy have him at 4* and gear lvl , but Rey is a better option over time, especially in arena

      0
      • Yeah, I already have Rey to 5 stars so I think I’ll just continue with her. Currently trying to get Old Dakka out of the Cantina store right now so it’ll be awhile before I even think about getting HR Scout. I also think I’ve decided to use Ackbar (L), Rey, Princess Leia, Royal Guard, and Chewie. This will just make Leia a machine gun.

        5
    • If u want a Lando team go Lando, Dengar, Nute, Zam and then Chewy for self heal taunt tanks Mob for bigger self heal thermal tank but no taunt or Greedo for more wipe em off the board when u set the detonators off with Zam. But the last 3 are a toss up depending on ur situation.

      Let me help u out u want a bad ass leia team. Leader Phasma get 20% or better assist chance then get Cad Bane, Old Daka, Leia, and Darth Vader for finishing moves for the annoyances that wont die for arena. For Dark Side go same team subtract Leia add Darth Sideous or Kylo Ren depending on what works best for u. -drops the mic-

    • Lando Calrissian

      I think you should keep Lando in the team 😉

      0
  5. So apparently she will be available in arena shipments soon. This is great news for F2P or in between players (like me) who want to finally 7 star this relatively strong character.

    4
  6. Has anyone thought of the possibility of using her with say: ackbar (L), leia, chewbaca, Royal guard, and poggle? The idea being to use ackbar’s leadership and all the buffs to turn leia into a fully automatic machine gun of death.

    0
    • Holy shit I was thinking “how is that a good team” then bam… OF COURSE IT IS! Damn with everyone using there non attack abilities she would just go again and a gain and again… I’m defiantly trying that team

      0
    • or just leave Chewie on a bench and take Poe for exposes and certain death hahehehehe

      0
    • It can also trigger ackbar himself instead of leia making it quite useless.

    Leia is my strongest character. After realizing her potential, I focused all credits, crystals, and upgrades solely on maxing her out. She has the ability to completely decimate your strongest opponents. She works wonders against annoying counter attackers such as Dooku and 5’s. I highly recommend her as a strong addition to anyone’s collection.

    5
  8. So i just promoted her to 3 stars. I can level her up to 76, is she worth it or should i collect more shards first?

    0
    • I got her at 4* and she is unbelievable. With Lando as leader she can hit for up to 6000+ at a time and with her being so fast its not long before she has another go.
      Its just a shame we cant farm her. Best character in the game imo

      5
    • Great, some how got her to 7*. She is in every party build I can think of. Hits avarage but stacked with crit chance up for all, all most always multi strike, and invisible, best toon!

      0
  9. Am I lucky or what? My first character was Old Ben and my second pull was Princess Leia. Is she accessible on FTP now?

    0
  10. My only complaint is that she doesn’t fight in that sexy bikini she wore for Jabba the Hutt. I never sook her out when buying data cards, but my girl is 5, almost 6 stars and she holds up pretty well after only a few weeks in my galactic war battles early on. She’s geared up to level 7 and flirting with inserting her in my arena squad because I’m not satisfied with finishing between 500-1000 every night. I’m way better than that when I regularly beat teams 2000-3000 more power than me. I’ll gladly take advice from anyone who uses her in the arena, as I have every character in the game but 9 people.

    5
    • I just used her in her first arena match and she CRUSHED. I don’t think she even got hit. Her triple attacks are BRUTAL and can easily take away half of a player’s health or more.

    • OpenGungenStyle

      Pair her with phasma lead, a tank, preferably storm trooper Han for turn meter gain (don’t taunt until she looses stealth) or RG, 86 and GS for assist chance and fives for counter, assist and health.

      Great team

      0
  11. I have her at 4* and gear lvl 6 and hair trigger lvl 5 and she does 5-7k damage with all 3 crit.

    0
  12. Anyone here using Nute Gunray as leader with Leia for stealth/crit synergies? Didn’t read all the comments, but the ones I did read didn’t really mention this possibility… just wondering whether or not anyone has had success with this.

    0
  13. Question to Leia owners, are you invis’ing first turn or trying to go for the kill in PvP?

    0
    • I go for the kill IF I can get the health down early on by another Char. If I am not confident she will get the killing shot I go invis.

      0
    • I always only use Basic attack in PvP, due to her ability to take out glass cannon in one go and to get Crit Up from the go. I also have GS and Ahsoka who are both highly dependent on crit.

      The only time I invis is in GW, when I want to skip turn and get extra heal from Barriss’ passive for the next toon.

      I do know that AI goes invis on Defense, and I hate it. Which is why I will take her out once I get Rey to 7*.

      0
    • I can’t resist shooting from the start. Feels like stealth is missing a turn with Power shots. I hope RG will save her if she gets hit =)

      0
  14. Leia w/ Ackbar as lead means Leia always goes first followed shortly there after by Hoth Rebel Scout. Wish I could 7* without having to take a chance at getting nothing towards her :/

    5
  15. I just got her at 2 stars now I have to get lucky with shards or I’m never going to be able to use her.

    0
  16. High speed, team critical change up, high damage. Top 1 heroes with datacard only.
    EA is going to keep her to earn money.

    5
    • I’m with you on EA comment. She’s very powerful and they’ll keep her in data cards to make money.

      I’m now 2nd in PvP and the only guy I can’t beat with my 6* Leia has Leia with more health (don’t know if thru gear or stars). He also has a 7* gear VIII QGJ (who also was only available thru data cards) which means I stand no chance and he finishes with 3-4 toons all the time, no matter which combination of toons I use.

      0
  17. She’s the only 5* char in my all-7* PvP team, and I’ve consistently finished in top 10 since I got her. She’s squishy, but her insane speed means she goes invisible before opponent can focus on her. Consistent Critical Chance Up means she’s invaluable for any high crit team. Have Sid as a leader, add Lumi for heals and ability block (against AoE chars) and you’ll be thru any battle under 2 mins.

    Her basic can get her 3 turns in a row, each crit and basically she finishes off almost any important character after Sid’s special (Lumi, Dooku, Kylo or even Phasma, but don’t use on Sid who can evade). She seems debugged after update, as get less extra attacks from her.

    AoE attacks are her weakness, Kylo and Sid are her main anti-dotes.

    I’m considering adding Kylo to my team, but want to know if there are chars that benefit from Leia’s Crit Up? besides Luke who seems to be too slow. Also, any suggestions on other pairings?

    • Update:
      1/ gearing to lvl 8 requires 50 MK6 syringes. They’re only available at Level 7 battles, and not at events, ouch!
      2/ Unique Ability (Against All Odds): at lvl 7, she has 55% chance to self-heal 5%. Please update description to read all abilities at lvl 7, otherwise confusing l

      0
    • Lando’s special benefits greatly, especially with Sid as leader. Aayla Secura also stuns on any crit.

      5
  18. Only gripe I have with her is her leader ability seems lackluster compared to others. 18% crit chance just to rebel allies seems really low. I’d rather roll with IG-88 and not have to be stuck using mostly rebel units.

    4
  19. She has potential. Can’t focus her, so she doesn’t require a tank of any kind thanks to stealth. Her DPS is very impressive, but Hero’s like Resistance Pilot, TIE Fighter Pilot do more. She’s similar to Dooku in that her DPS is more of a constant barrage of damage. Synergizes well with Phasma. Hard to obtain/level.

    Farmability – 1/10 – Only obtainable through in-game money purchasing. Not worth it at all if you ask me. Would give a fat zero if I went by that scale.

    Damage – 9/10 – Not as consistent as the ones mentioned above, but has a high ceiling and a decent floor. Very high damage output.

    Speed – 7/10 – Pretty good speed. Standard attacker speed, which is higher than most other types of Heroes.

    Survivability – 6/10 – Her health is incredibly low, and her speed is average, making her an easy first-target to melt. She is saved, however, by her stealth ability, which can make her untargetable for a couple of turns. Note that this only matters for single-target attacks, and does not protect her from AOE.

    Overall: 3 Stars. Obtaining her is costly, and random. Getting her is good, but she’s not elite for any reason other than damage, where other’s fill her role quite nicely, and more effectively.

    3
    • you rate the 3rd fastest character ingame speed 7/10 and say “and her speed is average, making her an easy first-target to melt” why should any1 even consider reading the rest

      only dooku and sid go first and unless dooku gets a 40% lucky stun no1 will melt leia

      5
    • Do you really understand what you talked about? You don’t know this game at all.

      5
  20. This b!tch is OP as hell. I normally focus-fire Sidius, Maul, or Luminara first. But RNG means she can potentially knock one of my toons out in a single turn. Stun/ability block her immediately before she goes invis.

    Wish she were unlockable through other means than just Data Cards.

    5
  21. opened leia and luke one after another, now im chasing the rebel dream. agree with Fruuts, hair trigger is very fun if you can stomach the RNG.

    5
  22. with hair trigger at lvl 5 (+55% 2nd, +40% 3rd attack) and against all Odds at 4 (40% Chance for crit up) leia really starts to shine! when she hits 3 crits in a row u just go booya! 4,5k dmg =D

    • ColemanzMustard

      I have her at 7* (used to get annoyed that she was all I’d see from chromium cards), once I realised her potential she became amazing. Mine with 3 Crit hits in a row deals closer to 8K damage

      0
      • I play my 7* Leia with my 7* poggle the lesser.. With his droid assault makes her even deadlier..if you have him try that combo then tell me what you think..
