Thoughts

General Grievous is a very strong character to have against Jedis. With a good number of Jedis in the game, he really does shine. His basic attacks cannot be avoided. He has 2 AoE skills. The first AoE skill can inflict healing immunity and the second can reduce enemy turn meter + the chance is doubled against Jedis.

His leader skill is also very unique. It is made to counter critical teams. That puts people like Luke Skywalker/Darth Sidious/IG-86 at a slight disadvantage due to having less damage.

Now, he is quite squishy with a low health pool. However, that can be offset if you run a droid team, which would allow him to gain 9% hp for every droid ally.. HK-47 would be a great leader along with Poggle, IG-86 and IG-88. Now the droid team only lacks a good droid healer.

He is hard to get though, especially for free to play players. Good luck farming him!

Rating

[usrlist “Campaign Map:5” “Arena:4.5” “Galactic War:4.5”]

Verdict: Farm and gear him. He is a very good and well rounded character. Good luck farming!
