  • The "Shadow of Malachor" Marquee event has come early to the Holotable, and our Gamechangers have been hard at work testing out the newest addition to the dark side. Please see their videos below:




  • Shadow of Malachor
    We’ve received reports from players about perceived issues with the new “Shadow of Malachor” Marquee event that require clarification.

    The Bonus Tier of “Shadow of Malachor” is granting one Mod. Additionally, we’ve reviewed reports that the Sith Marauder is only hitting for half Damage in the Bonus Tier of the event. After investigating the reports and working with the team the following is correct:

    • The Bonus Tier Rewards are being distributed as intended. There is a chance to receive only one of the mods as a first-time reward, meaning 1 of the 3 displayed Mods will drop.
    • The armor on the bosses of the bonus tier of the event is set incredibly high, meaning that most characters (including Sith Marauder) will appear to hit for reduced damage.

    We understand that this may be confusing and we are going to look into improving the messaging on the Bonus Tier Rewards. In the meantime, we will be working on a Hotfix today that will be providing one of each of the mods detailed in the Bonus Tier rewards for "Shadow of Malachor I" (5 dot, Health Mods – Diamond, Square, and Circle) to players over Lv 20 via the inbox. Please keep an eye on the Game Update Status post for further information.

    Feb 08, 2018, 06:02 p.m. · CG_Kozispoon - EA Forums

    Hiya Holotable Heroes
    After our 2/7 Content Update pushed, we encountered a small amount of issues that required today's Hotfix. For details on what's being addressed, please see below:


    • The ability description of Darth Vader's "Inspiriing Through Fear" for Tiers 2, 3 and 6 now display the correct values.
    • Darth Vader's basic ability description of "Terrifying Swing" has been updated to include Rebel targets.
    • The localization for Darth Vader's "Culling Blade" now uses the term "debuffs" instead of "negative status effects".
    • Fixed localization error in Emperor Palpatine's "Emperor of the Galactic Empire". Ability Level Bonus 3 now states the correct upgrade of +15% Evasion Reduction. Upgrade 7 text now states the correct Turn Meter amount of 20%.

    Later today, our team will be working on pushing a silent server fix (which should not require a restart of the client) to address the following:
    • Inbox granting Missing Holdo/Rose Marquee Event Shards for players who completed Tier 4 of the Event.
    • Various fixes to Territory Wars.

    For further updates on these fixes and more, please go to Answers HQ

  • This February shadows gather as the power of the Dark Side introduces its latest threat- the Sith Marauder. For a sneak peek of what's in store with this terrifying attacker, please see the character Strategy post link below.

    Additionally, please check out the exclusive gameplay of this new Darkside character via our Gamechagers below:

  • UNIT NAME: Sith Marauder
    CATEGORIES: Dark Side, Sith, Attacker
    Destructive Sith Attacker that takes advantage of all buffs and debuffs in battle



    FINAL TEXT: Deal Physical damage to target enemy and inflict Offense Down for 2 turns.


    FINAL TEXT: Deal Physical damage to target enemy and grant all allies Potency Up for 2 turns.

    • Characters: If this attack scores a Critical Hit, reduce the target's Max Health by 15% until end of the encounter (not resistible).
    • Raid Bosses: This attack ignores Armor.

    Sith Marauder has +10% Defense, +10% Health Steal and +10% Tenacity for each buff on all characters. Sith Marauder has +2% Critical Chance, +2% Offense and +2% Potency for each debuff on all characters. When an enemy uses an ability outside of their turn, Sith Marauder gains 20% Turn Meter.

    General Strategy, Synergy and Utilization

    In PvE...

    Sith Marauder’s basic ability, “Strength Through Passion,” generates Offense Down that helps reduce the damage coming at the team and gives an additional debuff which scales up his own damage.

    His Special, “Victory Through Power,” is very effective in dealing damage against Raid bosses and grants Potency Up. The Potency Up should allow teams like Vader/Wampa to more reliably apply negative effects.

    Marauder’s Unique, “The Force Shall Free Me,” scales exceedingly well with Vader lead, as it helps Sith Marauder spin up over time. The Health Steal and Offense scaling also plays well with Nihilus lead and allows Marauder to recover quickly when he attacks.

    In PvP...

    Sith Marauder hits hard and his saber-throw is as mesmerizing as it is deadly. Marauder fits in nicely with a Zeta-upgraded Darth Vader-led squad. The persistence of Damage Over Time effects means Marauder will have a consistent damage boost throughout the encounter.

    Sith Marauder also pairs nicely with Wampa, since both have strong synergy with Vader’s lead. When they’re all together, Vader, Marauder and the gang do considerable damage in Territory Wars, slicing through their opponents with style and malice.
