Lore

Luke Skywalker was a human male born 19 BBY on Polis Massa. Shortly after his birth he was taken to Tatooine by Obi-Wan Kenobi and given to Aunt Beru and Uncle Owen. When Uncle Owen purchased R2-D2 and C-3PO, R2 came with a transmission from Princess Leia asking for Obi-Wan's help. Obi-Wan and Luke then set out to free Leia with the help of Han Solo and Chewbacca, and after Obi-Wan's sacrifice, they escaped the Death Star with Leia. Luke is later involved in the Battle of Hoth, where he is told to visit Dagobah. On Dagobah is Yoda, who teaches him the ways of the force. He then cuts his training short to save his friends on Cloud City from Darth Vader. Han Solo ends up frozen in carbonite, so Luke, Chewie, Leia, R2, 3PO and Lando go to rescue him. After the rescue they launch a successful attack on the second Death Star, and Luke redeems Darth Vader.

By 34 ABY Luke had trained a new group of Jedi, though Ben Solo, daughter of Han and Leia, had turned to the dark side. Luke later reluctantly trained Rey to combat Kylo Ren and the First Order. Luke, to save the Resistance, appeared at the Battle of Crait as an illusion, and stalled time for the remaining Resistance members to escape. In doing this he sacrificed himself, and faded into the force as Yoda once did.

Further Media Appearance

Episode III, Rebels, IV, V, VI, VII, VIII and many books, comics and video games.

Strengths

CLS is a very strong character and leader in most aspects of the game. He functions as a good leader in Arena, Grand Arena, Territory Wars and is a hero character in Territory Battles. CLS can also solo the heroic Rancor Raid on his own and do extremely well in the heroic Tank Raid. He has extremely high damage and can defeat most bulky teams with relative ease.

Weaknesses

CLS should be wary of Ability Block, as it stops him from recovering health and protection using his second special. It should also be noted that while CLS himself is a great self-sustaining character, his common team-mates including Han Solo are often squishy.

Farming Locations

CLS is only obtainable from his Hero's Journey event, which requires 7* Stormtrooper Han, Old Ben Kenobi, Princess Leia, R2-D2 and Farmboy Luke to unlock CLS at 7*. G8 is the minimum. A g9 leia or a g10 R2 will make this event a cakewalk.

Playstyle

CLS is used on fast, extremely hard hitting Rebel squads that counter often due to his leader ability.

Zeta & Omega Abilities

  • Destined Strike (Basic), Omega - If the target has Speed Down, remove 30% Turn Meter, if the target has Defense Down, inflict Stun, very useful all-round and highly recommended.
  • Use the Force (Special), Omega - Remove 100% Turn Meter, inflict 2 turn Buff Immunity, and remove 100% Turn Meter if target had less than 100% health, this is insanely useful and necessary for pinning down a dangerous enemy or removing Turn Meter from Raid Bosses.
  • Call to Action (Special), Omega - Recover 40% protection, this is generally very useful to improve Luke's survivability.
  • Rebel Maneuvers (Leader), Zeta - Add whenever a Rebel ally resists a debuff, gain 5% Turn Meter, useful and needed for a top tier Rebel team, though not the most useful of all Luke's Zetas.
  • Learn Control (Unique), Zeta - If Luke doesn't have the Call to Action buff, he has +100% Tenacity and +50% Critical Avoidance, this is very useful for avoiding fast Stun, Daze or Ability Block inflicting characters but not as useful as the final Zeta.
  • It Binds All Things (Unique), Zeta - When Luke resists a debuff he recovers 5% protection and when Luke inflicts a debuff he gains 10% Turn Meter, and his allies gain half that amount, this is extremely useful as Luke inflicts a debuff almost every turn he takes, and it improves his survivability a lot. 10/10 would recommend.

Mod Recommendations

  • Offense Square
  • Speed Arrow
  • Defense Diamond
  • Critical Damage Triangle
  • Protection Circle
  • Potency/Offense Cross

Critical Damage and Critical Chance sets are recommended.

Speed secondaries are always useful.

Synergy Teams

CLS works well on Rebel teams where he's the leader. These are usually composed of CLS, Han, Chewie, and a mixture of R2, Thrawn, Old Ben, C-3PO, General Kenobi and Nest.
