  1. Love savage. I’ve got him 5 stars, does a lot of damage and just wrecks for me. He’s also my leader.

    5
  2. Don’t care for him. See him everywhere in GW. He’s not that dangerous as long as you kill him last or keep him stun juggled. His only saving grace is that low hp kill skill. Without which would make him truly meh. I guess if you like brutish nihilism he’s cool.

    1
  3. How do you get his level 8 unique ability. Mine is level 80 gear level 8 and brute says maxed at level 7

    5
  4. Does anyone have tried the SYNERGIE with SNOWTROOPER?
    This char looks awesome, I’m new and farming him through Arena gonna be a long way but doesnt matter.

    5
    • UPDATE! I got him 4 stars now, lvl 49 and gear VI, basic attack still doing less damage than my Chewby 3 stars same gear. He has a good defense but the damage is too low for an agressive Sith like him…

      2
  5. COMPLETE BEAST. Just a devastator and will tear anything apart with ease. Savage is just an old school, no gimmicks, Heavy Hitter. He isn’t the type to work by countering or buffing teammates, he will just go out and wreck players with immense strength. 1st non-starter character I unlocked and has been an integral part since.

    5
    • Did they nerf the guy?
      Im a new player, just got him 3* lvl 44 and armor IV with some other pieces. I know he has a lot of things to improve, but comparing to my other characters his dmg is very low. I think even chewby does more dmg on the Basic Ability…

      0
  6. This guy is an epic anti-AOE specialist.When ever he receives AOE damage he just slaughters everyone.

    5
  7. Savage is a hard hitting Tank!
    Not one complaint about him.
    Saves my butt constantly.
    Smashes anything under 25% in one blow! Bosses included!
    Try This- Drop your tank and use him instead…throw in an attacker. It’s like pulling the goalie.

    5
  8. Very good character. I have him at 4 stars and he can destroy other characters with his unique.

    5
  9. I was fighting one the other day for #1 rank and he destroyed my last 3 characters. Hitting him is like hitting a wall. he gets buffed and turn meter. then he smacks you, and at 25% he destroys you for more buffs. His role before the end was a bit lackluster. I can’t deny his strength once I started hitting him.

    5
  10. Why is it that when the computer uses savage he does damage to your entire party with the special attack but when you use him he only does damage to one character

    4
    • Challenges are separate. That boss has a special ability that only works for that challenge specifically.

      0
  11. This guy is crazy at Lv.8 skill. So tanky, high attack, and 50% chance to fill turn meter whenever he takes damage easily 5* to me.

    5
  12. He’s my main character. At 3* but he’s the main damage dealer. Not to mention he is very tanky due to large STR. He crits as well, and the Special makes him important finishing off opponents. He usually gets first turn on my team of Sid, Phasma, Luke, and Dokuu. Very useful indeed. (y)

    5
    • Why is his speed 123 and he’s going before my Poe Dameron at 136 in SA? This happens every time and it’s why I lose. Are there Sith or all character speed unique abilities that I’m not aware of?

      0
      • When he gets attack he gets turn meter reduction and offense / defense up. That’s why. Don’t use AOE on him. He is a specialist to kill AOE teams.

        0
  13. Rating for Savage is way too low – i have him at 7* and tier 7 kit and he is my major hitter – with lumi and/or a jedi to heal and a royal guard as the auto tank they are very hard to stop.

    5
  14. Since the new update, Savage is really really useful! I’ve got him at max gear and 6* and he consistently does ~3-4k damage with his basic attack. Despite this, the best thing about him is his special attack. If savage has been hit (usually by sid’s AOE) he can do 9000 damage with his special which is enough to get sidious to barely any health so you can finish him off with other characters before he health blocks key team members.
    When you add in the potential for lowering opponent’s special attack (rendering them fairly useless) and turn meter gain when attacked, he becomes a really great character. Farmable, tanky, good output and occasional debuffs make Savage Opress a really useful character. Totally transformed by the update.

  15. Chaz the Dragon

    I have him at 5 stars and gear level IV and he is honestly one of my favorite. His instakill is super helpful and he has good health. Should be rated near the top.

    4
  16. His 25% instant kill – makes him very useful, especially in the arena.

    5
  17. with the new 25% insta kill – now a very powerful addition

    5
  18. His overall rating needs to be reviewed:

    Pro’s
    +super tanky with ok speed
    +constantly has defense up and offense up
    +good attack power and good speed
    +inflicts offense down with attack
    +if they have 25% health they die and you get offense up again.

    Con’s
    -his crit rate is not that high

    his GW and PVP score should be 85/80 and you can farm him like sid.

    5
    • He should be rated at a minimum 80/80 now. I find myself leaving him for last and avoiding AOE when encountering him. Update certainly revived this character.

      4
    • +if they are exposed you should be able to one shot them with 45% health or less using his special 100% of the time. the computer only uses the special when the enemy is 25% or less so it probably wont work on def.

      gives him pretty good synergy with Poe and other resistance toons on the attack.

      0
      • Does it really work like that? I’m only seeing him as an opponent until finish farming Sid, so I don’t know for sure, but by the description, the “massive damage (instakill)” doesn’t trigger until the target is below 25%. I know that Exposed deals an additional 20% of Max HP, but if you’re attacking them when they’re at 45%, his special (before Exposed) won’t be triggering the 25+% instakill damage, will it? You should be doing [default damage]+20% of max.

  19. New Buff is awesome. Great character with great damage and heath. Easy choice for a sith team or maybe even a crit team. Savage dishes out 5k-6k crit damage with his normal attack and even more than that with his special. Easily one of my favorite characters, I have him at 7* Max gear he is the pinnacle of my team.

    5
  20. After the last update (02/11), a new bonus to special attack was added that kills a Hero with 25% or less of healt and also is unblockable. Also, the Unique ability, besides defense, also increases their attack power in the next turn. Please review teh Overall Raiting of this Hero

    4
  21. tbh, we need to see the buff, but he looks like he’ll be really nice when the 80 cap hits either way, until then still a pretty nice tank with meh damage. Good GW character.

    4
  22. Absolutely ridiculous that he destroys my entire team of 50+ in one hit just for a few pieces of gear.

    1
    • that’s his boss battle, it’s how it’s supposed to work lol

      0
      • Hey is that boss level = L7 full upgrades level of opress it is it just the boss? Will L7 oppress be able to do the same?

        Kinda disappointing if it’s only for the boss. I was going tip hold my oppress to that level.

        4
        • Just boss. Player special is single target damage now with a kill at 25%, and Crit Chance up if you kill.

          0
  23. I would love to try him in a team where everyone else has stealth, forcing the enemy to target Opress and trigger Brute repeatedly. I have a lot of grinding ahead of me. Hopefully it won’t suck.

    0
  24. Very meh character that can take a beating but with no oomph. Maxed out his normal and special hit for about 2k non-crit. The description says he’s a tank, but he’s an attacker, and like the confusing description, his role also is quite confusing. They should really buff his unique trait to at least 40-50 turn meter, but even then he’s not an exciting character. Kind of regret using arena shipments on him instead of IG88 or HK47

    3
    • Agree with all of this. Definitely takes a beating.

      3
      • He is not too bad. with his special attack, he came to quite handy in story mode when facing boss. damage output is also fair, and get huge hp pool. However, he definitely not a priority pick in arena shipment. I’ll say 3.5~4 star for this hero

        4
  25. Not a great option for Arena teams. Can safely be left for last and doesn’t provide any real threat in the meantime.

    3
  26. This character is great, good damage, hp, speed and very farmable as well from arena runs.

    Highly reccomended for dark side teams!
