Phase 2

cool-star-wars-photos-fired-trooper7

Well mostly droids and clones really, droids are a very good team for this phase but if you are lucky enough to have five characters that can only be told apart by their shoulder pads then they can also be a strong team in this phase.

Introduction

Arrghhh! its a hoofing great tank, with guns and bombs and everything. You are going to need to do about 380,000 damage to the hull of that thing to do your 2%, the basic trick is to master the ‘Topple’ otherwise known as blow all its guns off at the same time and make the hull vulnerable to a proper kicking.

Not a lot of choice here, both of the squads are fairly prescriptive in order to really get the most from them. but in a pinch high damage characters with good speed would be able to make up a shortfall.

Method

With an HK-47 lead, your droids are going to be very, very quick. Aside from the usual rule of be-as-fast-as-possible, the tactic here is to maximise crit. chance and crit. damage to do as much damage quickly and to keep the droids’ turn meters topped up.  Jawa Engineer will, with a speed arrow, always go first and that allows you to kick of his Re-calibrate (2x crit. chance) ability to make sure you get in a full round of pain before the tank starts moving. Gun down all the turrets and shoot up the hull, it’s not pretty or clever but it gets the job done. If you are confident in your damage output and timing then go for the second tier topple by making sure you take out all the guns in one go (before the tank gets another action) if not then prioritise the main gun, you do not want that bad boy shooting at you, even if you can avoid the massive damage it is still going to leave a mark.

After the first topple you have to decide if you are going to go for  a second or not. If you are well geared and modded, go for it. If not just take out the main gun and smash up the hull, you won’t get a stellar score but up to around 3% is very doable.

The basic rule is speed equals score, the faster your team is the more damage you will do.

As an aside, this team is hilarious if you ever run non heroic AAT, scores of well over a million are easily achievable as the tank will essentially only get to act as it comes out of each topple.
