    UNIT NAME: Master Qui-Gon
    ALIGNMENT: Light Side
    CATEGORIES: Support, Galactic Republic, Jedi



    Key Attributes:
    • Willing to take a risk to help empower his allies and punish the enemies.
    • Draws the attention of the enemy by stealthing his allies if there is no decoy.
    • Keeping an eye out for opportunities, he rolls a chance cube that can deal Special damage based on his increased Max Health and Queen's Protection.
    • He boldly supports his allies by giving defensive capabilities with his Territory War omicron.

    Inspiration:
    • Qui-Gon Jinn is an iconic character so we jumped at the opportunity to get another version in the game
    • We chose the name Master Qui-Gon for the unit as that is how Obi-Wan referred to him in many scenes of The Phantom Menace (which directly led to us using the name Padawan Obi-Wan for the other half of the pair).
    • To get through various challenges Qui-Gon leveraged gambling as an ally, so we put a nod to this when he rolls the chance cube (and influences the outcome…)
    • Qui-Gon as a support for the team felt appropriate from his time protecting the Queen rather than fighting a war for her
    • Poncho! (Seriously, we want alternate versions of characters to have fairly distinct looks, and this was a look from Phantom Menace that we thought would appeal to our players)

    Strategy Tips:
    • Try to maintain Accuracy Up to help sustain his allies.
    • He will assist Jedi who attack during his turn, so pairing him with another Jedi that assists frequently will maximize his number of attacks.


    FAQ:

    How do we get Master Qui-Gon?
    Master Qui-Gon is a marquee unit who will be available starting at 11a Pacific on Thursday May 23rd
    Does he use the new, experimental, Marquee structure?
    Yes, but he will require Padawan Obi-Wan for the tiers above the first one (we will have Padawan Obi-Wan available to anyone who missed him the first time around to make sure no one is locked out of the higher tiers because they can’t get Padawan Obi-Wan).
    Can the Chance Cube ever come up red?
    Currently No. The entire ability is balanced around the Blue result and that is the only result that can happen thanks to Qui-Gon’s Force manipulation.

    Final Text:
    Roll a Chance Cube.

    If the result is red: This ability has no effect.

    If the result is blue: Deal Special damage based on 5% of his Max Health (+2% per stack of Queen's Protection) to all enemies. Dispel all debuffs on all Galactic Republic allies. Master Qui-Gon gains 25% Max Health and Max Protection (stacking, max 100%) for rest of the encounter and ally Padawan Obi-Wan gains 30% Offense for 2 turns. If the ally in the Leader slot is Queen Amidala, and there is no active ally Handmaiden Decoy, she gains Critical Damage Up and Foresight for 2 turns. If there is an active ally Handmaiden Decoy, the Decoy gains 25% Max Health and Max Protection for rest of the encounter. All Galactic Republic allies gain Tenacity Up for 2 turns and inflict Tenacity Down on all enemies for 2 turns.

    Master Qui-Gon will influence the outcome of the Chance Cube roll.

    UNIQUE 1: Stay Close to Me (Zeta, Omicron)


    Final Text:
    At the start of battle, and whenever Galactic Republic allies are Stunned, they gain Defense Up and are immune to Turn Meter Reduction for 1 turn. Whenever any other Jedi ally attacks during Master Qui-Gon's turn, he assists (once per turn). Whenever Master Qui-Gon is critically hit, all Galactic Republic allies gain 30% Protection Up for 2 turns, all Galactic Republic Attacker allies recover 10% Health, gain Advantage for 2 turns, and ally Padawan Obi-Wan gains Critical Damage Up for 2 turns. While enemies are inflicted with Tenacity Down they have -30% Critical Damage and Defense. The first time any Galactic Republic ally (excluding summons) falls below 50% Health, if the ally in the Leader slot is Galactic Republic, the Leader takes a bonus turn, dispel all debuffs on the Leader, and all Galactic Republic allies gain 25% Max Health until the end of the encounter. If the ally in the Leader slot is Queen Amidala at the start of battle, she gains 25% Turn Meter (50% if there is an active ally Padawan Obi-Wan), and Master Qui-Gon assists whenever she uses her Basic ability.


    While in Territory Wars and all allies are non-Galactic Legend Galactic Republic: At the start of the encounter, all allies gain 50% Max Health (100% Max Health if the ally in the Leader slot is Queen Amidala) for the rest of the encounter, and Defense Up for 3 turns. Whenever Master Qui-Gon is critically hit, he gains Foresight and 10 Speed (stacking, max 50) for 2 turns. Whenever Master Qui-Gon is defeated all allies gain 50% Offense for 2 turns and recover 100% Protection. If the ally in the Leader slot is Galactic Republic, when they have less than 50% Health, Master Qui-gon gains 50% bonus Protection for 2 turns at the start of his turn.

    If the ally in the Leader slot is Queen Amidala:
    - Whenever a Galactic Republic ally attacks out of turn, they deal 50% more damage, remove 25% Turn Meter, and inflict Ability Block for 1 turn which can't be evaded on target enemy.
    - Whenever Master Qui-Gon gains Legendary Battle Meditation, all non-Galactic Legend tank enemies are inflicted with Healing Immunity and Protection Disruption for 1 turn which can't be dispelled, evaded, or resisted.

  • Padawan Obi-Wan Q/A

    May 08, 2024, 06:05 p.m. · CG_Tusken_Meathead - EA Forums

    Will his event be similar to the gungans? Like will the event give us extra shards/gear?
    Yes, this event is very similar to the Gungan marquees.


    On the topic of the exclusive DC, do you mean it is only obtainable in that specific tier of the marquee event? And not through "normal" means (conquest, shipments).
    The Datacron for Padawan Obi-Wan is only available from the marquee and cannot be acquired by other means
    Does POW's exclusive datacron expire like all others or will it be a perpetual DC?
    It will expire like a normal Datacron.
    Meathead! Baby! Honeychild! Muffin! Pookie! No question here, just trying out nicknames.
    KyloMoredotgif
    Will this version of Obi-Wan trigger Maul’s 5th stack of anguish?
    Maul had Force beef with Obi-Wan from the moment they locked eyes. Yes, this version of Obi-Wan is counted for Maul’s Anguish.
    What does the final 5 team composition look like without QA?
    There are multiple teams that Padawan Obi-Wan can fit into, but he works especially well alongside Kelleran Beq, Ahsoka Tano, Mace Windu, and of course Master Qui-Gon. There’s quite a few variations here, including Ki-Adi-Mundi in place of other options listed.

    "The first time Master Qui-Gon is defeated, Padawan Obi-Wan takes a bonus turn and gains 5% Offense for each Relic Amplifier level Master Qui-Gon had for 4 turns". So, does this mean, to word it differently, after MQG is defeated, he takes only one bonus turn and then for the next 4 turns, padawan gains %5 offense per relic level stacking? So, 4x (1.05 * Relic level) ? Is this stacking and/or it can go over the usual max 50%?
    Yes, just one bonus turn. When MQG is defeated, we take a snapshot of MQG’s Relic level and that’s what Padawan Obi-Wan will gain for the 4 turn duration.
    Is there a benefit for having his basic be extremely similar to Grand Master Yoda's?
    Glad this was recognized! We did this for various gameplay and balance reasons, but also tried to thematically make it similar to Yoda as a nod to Ataru form, which Obi-Wan was quite well versed in, especially as a Padawan. Though he later would be much more recognized for his usage of Soresu.
    What are "hero units" and how do they differ from normal raid units? Are they like "event units" where they are given but unmodifiable or something else?
    Hero Units gain special modifiers specifically for the event or Territory Battle.
    How does his datacron work? Do you just hand everyone a lvl 9 datacron that only works with POW?
    When you beat the 7* tier of the event the first time you are given a Level 9 Datacron that is targeting Light Side/Galactic Republic/Padawan Obi-Wan with a static set of stats. While the Padawan Obi-Wan affix cannot be rolled as part of the new Datacron set that is releasing at the same time, this special Datacron is still “part of the set” so it will also expire at the same time as the rest of the set. While you can dismantle it early if you want, it will not be replaced and there is no other way to get a Padawan Obi-Wan Datacron with this set.
    Which is the handsomest Kenobi in-game?
    Yes.
    Did the animation team get a bonus for this kit? It's SMOKING
    Our art department inspires us with excellence each and every release. It’s insane to witness the stuff they do.
    CG_Miller: I kno rite? I can’t wait for players to see them on the PC client especially.
    Will exclusive datacrons for marquees be the norm moving forward?
    We’re always looking for new ways to reward players who commit to brand new characters early. Padawan Obi-Wan’s release coincided with the release of a new Datacron set so we had the idea of a character-specific Datacron as a reward for his Marquee. Feedback and performance will determine if/when we do something like this again in the future.

    Is Queen Amidala going to be good without the new marquees? It will take a while to farm them, while Amidala is easy to max on day one.
    Amidala has multiple teams that she can put together and will perform well with, though Master Qui-Gon and Padawan Obi-Wan will find an ideal home within her squad for sure.
    Do you need the omicron in order to complete certain feats in the next conquest?
    No. The Omicron is intended to make things easier certainly, but not required.


    Is he still a powerful character outside of conquest? Does the speed up from the 1st special stack of CDs are reset. Also which dev worked on this kit. Shout out how awesome they are.
    One of the goals we strive for on each character is that their performance within their game mode is an enhancement of an already cool and performant kit. So while he will definitely be stronger within Conquest, he was designed to perform well outside of it as well. And most importantly: he should (and in our opinion does) feel fun to use outside of Conquest (just a sprinkling of extra fun within it).

    CG_Mouse worked on this kit and appreciates the shout out <3

    How're you Meathead?
    6Ft Above ground, slightly hungry, unlocked Jar Jar at 2am today so feeling pretty jazzed. My Gear supply, not so much.
    What color MTG deck is he?
    White and Red. Stalwart but also especially offense oriented. While we often recognize Obi-Wan as a thoughtful negotiator, his Padawan days were a bit more reckless and aggressive.

    UNIT NAME: Padawan Obi-Wan
    ALIGNMENT: Light Side
    CATEGORIES: Attacker, Galactic Republic, Jedi



    Key Attributes:
    • High critical chance attacker
    • Punches you in the face with a Lightsaber
    • He has his own exclusive datacron
    • Omicron for Conquest designed for improving battle win rates and covering some feat requirements
    • Devilishly handsome
    Inspiration:
    • We knew we wanted to do a Phantom Menace beat for the 25th anniversary of that film, which would include “poncho Qui-Gon” (our placeholder name for Master Qui-Gon). With that and Queen Amidala on the roadmap, it made synergistic sense to include some one who worked thematically with both of them.
    • We have three other versions of Obi-Wan (General Kenobi, Jedi Master Kenobi, and “Old Ben” Kenobi), but we never had the Padawan version in the game obtainable.
    • We had some choices for what item his Relic would be, but took the opportunity to make it his Phantom Menace lightsaber as it is iconic to this version of Obi-Wan and this would be our only opportunity to include it on a character (since Maul kicked it down a shaft). ["Cause he's an ****" -Meat]
    • Please play with sound on (and music!) in the final tier of his Marquee (requires Relic 5 Padawan Obi-Wan). We pulled out all the stops for this homage. As a matter of fact, you should just always have sound on, our sound design team is fantastic!


    Strategy Tips:
    • For his Special 2, Sweeping Assault, if Queen Amidala is present this attack deals damage twice. Importantly however, its order of operations is: First Damage -> Defense Down -> Second Damage.
    • Padawan Obi-Wan’s offensive capabilities are quite potent, but he has very few defensive options. Using the rest of his team to keep him safe can be key to victory.

    FAQ:

    I won’t have Queen Amidala right away, what utility does Padawan Obi-Wan (and Master Qui-Gon) have?
    POW and MQG are “hero units” in the upcoming Battle for Naboo raid, meaning they are meant to perform better in the new raid.
    They are both Galactic Republic Jedi and have callouts to one another in their kits so as a pair they should do well under any leader who cares about Galactic Republic/Jedi.
    For Padawan Obi-Wan’s unique ability it says, “At the start of battle, Padawan Obi-Wan gains 25% Critical Chance for each other Galactic Republic ally”, does Queen Amidala’s decoy count for this (assuming she has the Omicron active)?.
    No, the Decoy does not count in this instance.
    How do I get the exclusive Padawan Obi-Wan Datacron?
    It’s a “First Time” reward for the penultimate tier of his Marquee (Requiring a 7* Padawan Obi-Wan)

    Final Text:

    At the start of battle, Padawan Obi-Wan gains 25% Critical Chance for each other Galactic Republic ally and if there is an ally Master Qui-Gon and Queen Amidala, Padawan Obi-Wan gains Discipline until the end of battle which can't be copied, dispelled, or resisted.

    Padawan Obi-Wan has +5% Critical Chance (stacking, max 50%) for each stack of Heal Over Time on him and +5% Critical Damage (stacking, max 50%) for each stack of Protection Over Time on him.

    If there is an ally Master Qui-Gon, whenever he uses an ability, Padawan Obi-Wan assists dealing 40% less damage. The first time Master Qui-Gon is defeated, Padawan Obi-Wan takes a bonus turn and gains 5% Offense for each Relic Amplifier level Master Qui-Gon had for 4 turns.

    If there is an active Handmaiden Decoy, Padawan Obi-Wan grants her 50% Defense.
    If Padawan Obi-Wan is active, whenever another ally is critically hit, they gain Defense Up for 1 turn and Padawan Obi-Wan gains Critical Damage Up for 1 turn.

    Discipline: Attacks can't be countered; whenever this character gains a stack of Protection Over Time they also gain a stack of Heal Over Time for 2 turns; this character's attacks ignore Protection

    While in Conquests (Omicron): Allies gain 10% Max Health and Max Protection and 30 Speed. Allies gain an additional 10% Max Health and Max Protection for each Relic Amplifier level Padawan Obi-Wan has. Cut the Offense of Sith enemies in half until the end of battle.

    Padawan Obi-Wan has a 50% chance to take a bonus turn whenever an enemy ends their turn. When Padawan Obi-Wan starts this bonus turn, allies recover 75% Health, gain 75% Offense for 2 turns, and enemies are inflicted with Buff Immunity and Healing Immunity for 2 turns, which can't be resisted.

    If Padawan Obi-Wan's Stamina is 50% or greater: Whenever an ally uses a Special ability, they inflict Accuracy Down, Critical Chance Down, Critical Damage Down, Defense Down, Evasion Down, Offense Down, Potency Down, Speed Down, Stagger, and Tenacity Down on target enemy for 2 turns, which can't be evaded.

    If Padawan Obi-Wan's Stamina is 50% or greater: Whenever Padawan Obi-Wan uses a Special ability, allies gain Accuracy Up, Critical Chance Up, Critical Damage Up, Defense Up, Evasion Up, Offense Up, Potency Up, Speed Up, and Tenacity Up for 2 turns.
