  1. One of the best toons in the game.hits like a truck delivers upto20k damage in specials+ dodge on nearly every turn.awesome.run a team of lumi,FOTP,rey,fives,and princess leia.

    5
  2. best character. tanks are shit in this game because many heroes with remove status + there also ability disablers like lumi. so game pretty much force you to make an all hitters party. so what’s stupid are characters like qgj making tanks utter garbage.

    5
  3. Rey is one the most annoying toons I’ve ever faced apart from Lando… Just encountered rey, sidious, Vader, consular, eeth koth in gw and I lost. With one attack my fives protection was gone and he had half health… Though I hate her, I must admit she’s good

    4
  4. Fantastic character. Hits hard, and has high survivability thanks to her Foresight ability. Sometimes, when my squad is coming close to losing in a PvP battle, she’s able to turn the tide and snatches victory from the jaws of defeat thanks to her high damage and Foresight. Extremely effective against everyone and her attacks can’t be dodged unless on PvP. An invaluable addition to my squad, along with Luminara.

    5
    • her attacks can definitely be dodged in other modes i get bs’ed atleast once or twice every Gw playthrough but her forseight & high damagin attacks do tend to turn the battle around for me, i personally love her, she has a lot of gear health, im addin all health mods so she last longer durin the cool downs of heals

      5
      • Her attacks can be dodged, but are the most difficult to evade from what I’ve seen. Even Vader’s deadly Cuiling Blade was dodged by some opponents of lower power. Chewbacca’s attacks are the most easy to evade.

        0
    • Rey herself is not over powered, if wit the right team then she along wit that team is overpowered, i mean isnt kylo, anakin, sidious vader plus someone else overpowered too cause they can stop you from healing n can mess you up wit damage over time plus vaders culling blade, rey should not get nerfed, other characters that dont do much damage should get upgraded n do more damage like barriss n plo, rey health isnt tanky i can almost take her down wit my 3rd team(nnot even my strongest obviously) but i say almost cause mostly a royal guard or healer comes into play, rey does have nice health but if you have good geared up n leved up star characters then youcan take her out quickly on thenext tutn, dame her while keepin her on green but closeto yellow, then the next turn unleash hell on her n shes gone, shes not op if you know what your doin, also pic your battles in pvp wisely, well sometimes you dont get anyone you stand a chance against in pvp if your team power is only at 23 thousand on 5*s when everyone you spot has 78 lvl 80’s n maybe youll come across a team you can beat after a lotta refreshin i mean i barely see 26 thousand power teams i mostly see 28 & up, this needs to change im sure other players are on my level or close to it so why cant i find them, not everybody is a pay to play player, some of us is free to play players n boy we know it, the update said now battle in pvp based off your lvl, yea right same ol bs, in fact since i got on lvl 70 it has been worst, all i get is lvl 80 pvp battles, anything other then that im lucky(probly wont win but still lucky) i know that once i get to 7 stars on all my characters in pvp ill win way more cause i have a very good team, cause Rey is in my team, yes shes that good, i took out jedi counsular n put her in his spot, she has basically won battles(the ones i could win suprisingly) by herself, like i had a minute left vs 3 characters in full health in pvp n thanks to mainly her wit the help of my hard hittin team to help we won the battles wit a few seconds to spare, if im lucky to get a pvp team aroun my power lvl we pretty much win, i faced a 26 thousand power team wit yoda, siious, rey, lumi n jedi cousular, took out yoda first, then rey, then sidious then jc then lumi, yoda had the least amount of health so i go in that order(plus yoda is a pain like rey or sidious) by the way vader also needs an attack upgrade along wit barriiss n plo

      5
  5. Hmm.. I see people have mixed feelings about Rey. I just recently got her and I want to make a team with her , Darth Vader, Count Dooku, Lumi, and Chewy. Does that sound like a good team ? I hope so. Anyways I’m giving her 5 Stars because for the most part , I hear she is a good Character to own.

    5
  6. She is super easy to kill. Even with tanks I use old daka on my team. She only attacks rey. I use asajj as my leader letting old daka go twice every round and she stuns her every round until u can take out the tanks then her

    4
  7. Rey is easily killed, yes, even with RG on her team, since I run QGJ just for that. But, that doesn’t change the fact that any hero that can hit for 25k+ in one attack is stupid and broken. That’s just a bad design flaw. I sit at top 50 in arena with a QGJ arena team, and only ever lose to a lucky shot from Rey. RNG should’nt be that decisive..

    0
  8. She is fully shit n bug of the game. One hit 18k or 19k and all of them is critical. I have her but I dont use because not enjoy the GAME

    0
  9. Rey is her only counter

    If you have Rey, use her. If you don’t, target her exclusively in the Arena.

    Rey right now is a problem because the developers wanted to balance the toons with trade offs between damage, speed, survivability, and utility as evidenced with the latest update.

    Rey not only is great in multiple areas, she is the top toon in them (or a close second). Rey is second to Lando for highest damage per turn, tied with Leia as fastest unbuffed toon, and has two abilities that grant foresight (one being her basic) that dramatically increase her survivability that usually requires focused targeting on her above all else.

    And players know this is an unbalanced toon, as a majority of tough teams in the arena field her out of necessity because she has little counters right at the start of battle and sadly, a Rey toon is the closest single toon to counter another Rey toon.

    0
    • This toon is stupidly too strong compared to the other toons. She has 3 strong attacks, but to balance that, she has foresight and speed for her giving the counterparts not a lot of chance. RG + Rey in arena and no need of other toons to win.

      Completely unbalanced. OK for the strong attacks but should have also counterparts like less speed or no foresight on almost every strikes.

      I do not see any interest of playing an arena against a toon being able to kill a Lumi 6* lvl 8 in two shots.

      0
  10. I constantly face 7 star Reys in the arena (and I don’t have her myself). I just take her out first. Usually takes one assist and one more attack and she’s gone. Ocassionally I have to waste an attack (I just use a basic from a toon that doesnt hit too hard) to remove her foresight.
    If they have RG I just take her down to 60-70% health then finish her with an assist attack so that RG can’t keep her alive.
    When the above goes wrong though it’s all over – she has pretty much single-handedly killed my whole team before :p

    0
  11. Everywhere I look I see Rey

    When 17 of the top 20 players in my shard field her with either 1-2 tanks and/or a small team of healers/rezzers to keep her propped up, I’m led to believe she’s OP. But it makes sense because at end game she does the damage equivalent of 2-4 attackers in a single move, every move. Plus she ties Leia as fastest unbuffed toon. PLUS her opening move gives her 100% dodge on next attack.
    IMO she stands to lose either 10% of her base speed, or 20% of her base power.

    5
  12. One Trick Pony. But she does that trick incredibly well.

    5
  13. Beast!
    Use here with Phasma. When Phasma give her advantage I use furry of blow, she usually one shot anyone with max health. It’s be against Dooku becuase then he can counter. She’s currently 7* gear 9.

    I use her with: Phasma(L), Rey, QGJ, Lumi and Geo Soldier

    5
  14. Mr. Brightside

    It’s kinda funny actually, a lot of people complain about her being OP and what does EA do? They put her in the guild store. I got her in a few weeks, have her at 4*, still haven’t used her. My guild mates advised me to get her and I’ve seen her do decent damage in arena. Still, I can still defeat her without her doing much damage. My Sid and Dooku always get her health down quick.

    0
  15. If bitches complain about this Rey being op, just wait until lightsaber Rey is released for pvp. Lol

    4
  16. she hits hard, too hard. she’s difficult to hit on top of that. lead her with dooku, have royal guard and sthan, and another high dps of your choice and you’ve got an unhittable truck team that never falls in the arena.

    0
    • And you can just sit back and press the auto button because, you know, that’s a team that just hits, no strategy, no challenge, no fun. So tell me, why do you play a rpg-strategy based off game when all you do is using raw force? To ruin my gaming? Come on, those teams are for strong weak girly asses who can’t even plan a battle. You suck guys, insult me, talk shit about this post but the truth is that you’re noobs, learn some basic strategy or go playing clash of clans, that would meet your IQ level

      1
      • If your IQ level was actually high then you would be able to figure out how to beat the people who sit back and use auto. It’s pretty easy… Don’t make yourself sound stupid while trying to sound smart

        5
      • even the most complex strategy in rpg games still super stupid easy. only action rpgs with hand eye coordination requires skill, turn based strategies doesn’t need iq.

        4
  17. I’m with KC, take your time, enjoy the ride, lots of fun toons to try, being on top only makes one stress out to keep it, what was working best two weeks ago will change, goal is to eventually have them all…….at 7 stars to mix and match as needed. Rey is must have since the force awakens….after all she is a kenobi…:)

    5
  18. Any ideas whether foresight wears off for double attacks or assists? I want to know if my FOTP could hit her on his second attack if she has foresight. Or if, say, QGJ could have his assisting toon hit her in the same situation. Seems like that would get around the foresight at least a little…

    0
    • Double attacks will hit on the second attack. Same goes for Dookie’s bonus attack. Called in assists will miss though (QGJ, Phasma, etc).

      5
  19. Any updates on a nerf? She’s super fast, so according to the update she’s probably the first to get a damage reduction.

    0
    • Still does good dmg but definitely nerfed, the crit % and the dmg by maybe 20ish%, I ran an all speed/dmg team and she and Lumi came out okay, Qui gon got screwed the most, so did the Geonosian warrior. But I did find that bringing Sidius back onto my team as lead seemed to make up for the nerfed dmg on Rey, just enough, no more no less. Also thinking Dooku as lead for the dmg buff on dodge may make up for it too, but it’s based on situation not passive so probably less effective.

      5
      • I have 6*G8 QGJ, his personal damage might be somewhat less, but his damage bonus on assist is still pretty devastating.

        0
    • Yeah, my Lv. 60 5* Rey was my best character by far, but now she can’t kill in one shot like she used to.

      5
      • I think that was the point of the update, and while it has made some of my characters less deadly on the first turn, it’s made others more valuable like STHan. I think Rey damage output is still pretty high compared to others.

        0
  20. I just hot hit for 23k by 6* Rey with offence up and no leader dmg buffs. 10/10 would face her in the Arena again.

    Currently, after Dooku leader abillity fix, she is so broken. She still 1-shots 90% characters and is almost imposible to kill (she dodges about 50-60% of attacks and also has foresight and health higher than most attackers – 1-shotting fully geared Rey without assists is very unlikely).

    5
  21. Rey, in this game is the Star Wars equivalent of Wolverine. She hits hard, she hits fast, and she goes toe to toe with the best in the game.

    Use her first attack to give herself a guarenteed evade. Second time around, use her other special attack. Each of those attacks, especially when Sidius is in the lead, either one-shots an opponent or puts them on life support.

    5
    • The 50 hypo syringes to get her to gear level 8 is really annoying. Been focusing only on that one gear item for about a week, and I still need 12 of thise damn things. Still. Everyone else on my main team is max star, max level toons, so I can focus on her.

      I run a Sidius (leader), Luminara, Geonosian, Nightsister Initiate, Rey team. Between Rey’s first attack giving her guarenteed evade, and Geonosian tag teaming with someone, generally Sidius hits third with his aoe attack, killing 2 toons in the process. Luminara 100% first turn heal, Initiate attack dooku to weaken him. Since she’s close to 20k hp, she can survive the counter easily.

      0
      • And if you enjoyed getting her to 8, maxxing 8 will make you pull your hair out. Four gear slots require 50x items. 50 syringes, 50 stun cuffs, 50 walkie talkie things you get in the daily fights, and 50 of those furnaces.

        0
  22. I’ve been grinding her since her release in December and I have her about 45/85 shards. She’s really good when paired with Old Ben or Dooku as leader due to her foresight buff triggering their leader ability bonuses.

    5
  23. Completely unbalanced in her current form. Between her speed and her ability to instagib other characters (I just had a 4* Rey instagib my 7* Sideous and then proceed to one-shot my 7* Phasma;)all while having a high enough health pool that she can weather an assault focused on her. Just another in a long line of characters that the developers didn’t even try to balance. She can join the ranks of ‘IHaveEveryDebuff’ Ren and Count ‘5AttacksInARow.’

    0
    • It’s not like she’s Chromium only and broken… just grind her shards and get her… same deal with Kylo and Dooku…

      0
    • I agree. Dooku and Rey are WAY overpowered. But I don’t agree with this guys asinine argument that you should have to get these characters to compete with them. That’s completely against the point. If every team was made up of Dooku, Rey, Ren, Tie Pilot, and Geonosian then the game would get boring real quick.

      She is one of the fastest and hardest hitting characters, and has a decent health pool (better than many others but not tanky) so with that and accounting for her foresight and 23% offense if you don’t attack her with sidius or Dooku first move and give her a debuff, she’s way overpowered.

      1
  24. One of highest damage dealers, capable of taking out toons in one move. Her good speed offsets her low HP, meaning opponent has to kill her fast. But if the team also features QGJ and Leia, who do you go after first!?

    Rey works best with QGJ or GS who may call her as assist. Add another high damage dealer (FOTP or Leia) plus RG and you are unstoppable. My arena team is just that. Rey has lowest power at 6* and gear VII so on defense she probably dies in no time.

    NB: Gearing to 7* and gear 8 will take some dedication. She needs 50 purple hair dryers!

    5
  25. This discussion reminds me of the videos I’ve seen of this game at high levels. It seems that damage output outdistances health and defenses drastically (which results in her being described as too squishy). I suspect that I’ll find that boring and I’m hoping that in the time it takes me to get there they’ll change the rules so that the destination is no longer so significantly incompatible with the journey.

    In the movies fights between grunts are fast, and fights between hero and villain are long. It is illogical to emasculate everyone’s characters by reducing the fights to ‘grunt-speed’ in the end game.

    0
  26. she is a beast, but way to squishy and has no real synergies – i prefer my savage opress – deeper HP pool and has the big finishing blow

    3
  27. Strong character, especially early game. I got lucky and she was my first Chromium drop. By far my hardest hitter. I would call her balanced for the most part. She hits like a truck, but no leader skill, damage is reduced if you can land any sort of negative affect, sucks on defense. She’s kind of a one-trick pony, but she does that one trick very well.

    5
  28. she can be really strong if u know how to use her.
    fast, great dps, self buff.
    one how i dont want to face in battle.

    5
  29. Rey is quite good, with a decent base attack, access to foresight and (sometimes) a self buff (if running with another buffer), for a potent striker toon.

    The downside is that she is pretty squishy without that foresight buff (which is removed by taunt, meh), and can get popped before doing much. Also, she doesn’t have any utility beyond the self buffing, so she offers little dynamic play opportunities. Finally, the farm is HARD, so be prepared to build her off of a lucky Chromium pull, or buckle down for a loooong farm. The problem with the long farm is that her overall quality as a character might go down due to meta shifts or a direct nerf (hopefully not nerf), especially after the 6 week farm for just the 4-star (4 months for 6-star!).

    Luckily mine is already 6-star (almost gear 8), level 70, and I can confirm she is an excellent striker, but falls a hair short of overpowered due to the reasons above. I rarely fear going against a Rey team in Arena, since she basically pops in the first round.

    4
  30. If you unlock Rey with shards, how many stars does she have? Wondering because I’ve seen a few Reys with only two stars.

    0
  31. I love Rey. I just got her two nights ago and am now up to 150-ish in Arena. Running her with Poe and my 3 assassin droids. Poe can take the damage for 2-3 rounds and Rey will have her foresight on for sure by the time he dies (if he dies). She hasn’t died in the last two days (since leveling her up) and is able to contribute way better than the Chewie she replaced. I don’t have Poggle or Sidious yet, so she’s found a place in my lineup for a long while.

    4
  32. People saying she’s way too strong are ridiculous.

    Yes, she’s really powerful but when she’s hit, she can be killed in two hits since her health is low.

    People complain about
    Count Dooku – not sure why since not high health, barely hits 2x (supposedly at 40%), and rarely stuns anyone like he’s supposed with lighting. He counters 100% but big whoop when going against powerful guys who can kill him quick.

    First Order Tie Fighter – Crazy powerful. Double hits and if has advance will kill you in one shot since his critical hit more than doubles.

    Fives – Can ask an ally to attack with him, plus he also hits twice, has loads of health, and counters most of the time, so good luck fighting him with mediocre guys.

    Qui-Gon Jinn – he not only asks an ally to help him every other turn, but the second person hits 50% harder. He slams down every turn with a different move and is frustrating to fight when equipped with other great guys.

    Lumi – heals a crazy bunch, plus her ability block is more like a nuclear blast when leveled up. She took out my full health Sid in one hit.

    I could really go on and on with the list of strong characters. Each one is unique and it’s ultimately up to you to figure out who you want on your team.

    Rey actually does synergy with others, since after all she is Resistance, but do your thing.

    Bottom line, stop crying on forums about a character being “too strong”. I leveled up my Dooku based on others claiming he was a god, but he’s not even in my lineup anymore. People near the end of GW have Genesonian, or IG-88. I think they’re crap…until I get leveled. So do what you want.

    4
    • Don’t talk about low stun chance for Dooku because that dude always stuns at least one member of my squad. Anyway Rey is a worthless character, high damage and that’s it. No need to be smart to use her, forget your tactics she hits hard. She’s a nooby character for nooby players.

      0
    • Rey unbalances the game, the damage is just too high, mixed with the foresight and a high health pool. Of course, loads of folks are twinning this with Dooku’s crazy leadership bonuses (somehow amounts to a dodge for every 3rd attack or so, plus powering up Rey further). Dooku and Rey need nerfing, so does 5’s. He’s getting impossible to kill off!

      0
  33. I was very surprised by her damage. It is “insane” as stated. Like FOTP high, and her dodge buff… tasty!
    Needless to say, I’m farming her now. With little hope of ever having her +5*. I think she’s a must have–with Disney pushing the “new” trilogy and all.
    3-4 Stars

    4
  34. waaaaaaay too overpowered, i don’t care what other people have to say about her cons such as not much synergy with other heroes or that it’s hard to find *s for her. if you have rey on your team, you’re basically guaranteed to win in a squad match against someone with the same total squad power as you. like ffs she’s just equipped with a staff not a lightsaber! damage output is too damn high!!!

    0
  35. Why Rey ALWAY evade my attacks, I try to focus on her but I cant touch her and I lose my turn, I checked her stats and there’s nothing. I hate her xD

    4
    • She has a unique ability called foresight which is a guaranteed dodge. Don’t use a high-damage special attack when you see the green eye over her head!!!

      0
      • but immediately attack her with something low-damage, ( aoe, tanks, character with offence down debuff ), otherwise – she will use ‘leverage’ and offence up can’t be removed so easily.

        0
  36. Great character. Can easily make the fight 5 vs 4 in one turn because she almost always goes first and deals crazy amounts of damage. Best partnered with Poe, healer, and turn meter characters (don’t have enough characters on account to come up with optimal team yet). Has weaknesses, but so do other characters. 5/5

    0
  37. Seriously? The only comments in here are about her sex and name… Here’s a real review!

    Rey has a very high damage output and despite having a mid hp level, she survives quite well thanks to her primary giving her a chance at foresight. When you combine her with bonus attacks such as qui gonn or phasma, this foresight bonus is even more likely, making her that much harder to kill.

    Pros:
    Insane dps.
    Good self buffs
    Cons:
    Not a lot of synergy with other heros
    Hard to level up *’s

    4.5/5 stars

    5
  38. Well to be fair, her name is weird because it means King, I take it Rey is short for Regina.

    And yes she is a beast, OHKO for a lot of characters out there, cant wait to increase her more.

    0
  39. Rey is a girl Nick…

    0
  40. dang. Rey seems like a beast, all he needs is one fast character to give him any positive buff on him and some decent scaling damage and he will put out some sweet damage.
