Thoughts

While Poe Dameron doesn’t have any strong heals as a tank, he is primarily built for offense. His 2 turn taunt comes with a chance to expose all enemies. Expose means the enemy loses 20% health on the next attack , allowing AoE skills to deal more damage.

Therefore, he is best paired with AoE damage characters like IG-88, HK-47, Captain Phasma, Kylo Ren, Jedi Anakin. Lando, Darth Sidious, Ugnaught, Kit Fisto, Underworld Police, Boba Fett, Jedi Knight Guardian, Darth Vader, Dathcha, Jawa, Snowtrooper, Clone Sergeant and more.

His only glaring weakness that his 2 turn taunt will often put him at red health. It is dangerous to taunt a team full of offensive units. He will get destroyed unless you have a good healer to keep him healthy. He is very useful in the arena to soak up damage as long as you have 2 decent healers.

As for Galactic War(GW), he is a poor choice since it is all about survival. However, you can use him in GW to taunt a very hard battle, let him die to attacks and burn enemy cooldown. Then you retreat and sub a strong character in to take advantage of the already burnt cooldown characters and carry on your assault. 🙂

Rating

[usrlist “Campaign Map:4” “Arena: 4.5” “Galactic War:3”]

Verdict: Only max him after your core characters(JC, Talia) unless you want him exclusively for the arena.
