So, how is the ARC?

Recommended Posts

Beatiful model

Works fine if

1. Biggs

2. R2d2 ptl tailgunner VTs norra

3. Any other ARC uses stress dealing stuff like r3a2 tactician/gunner

2 dice aux arc primary is crap without norra + tailgunner or stress

Only really sucks v torp scouts. Everything else is fair game

I just bought 2 (had to have 2 seismic torpedoes!), so I'll have a more concrete answer in a week or so.

 

...but I also just got home with 2 SFs, 2 Protectorates, and a Shadow Caster, so depending on which I play first, the review may be postponed.

Oh bit more detail

Reasob 2 die aux arc sucks even with tg is evade tokens already cancel half potential damage

Which is why you need stress and/or norra ability with TG


Once you got those you can grind down anything

Just expect long lonh LONG games against x7 defenders. Its a real **** show slap fight watching no offensive mods (stressed defenders) go up against 2 dice aux arcs trying to hit through x7 evades. Norra will always win the 1v1, just gotta make sure you get there before time is called

Don't forget the Alliance overhaul changes the firing spec, think it's 3 dice forwards and tail gunner can change a dice

aux arc is still 2 dice. Free mods from title are very much appreciated, but 2 dice aren't hitting through evade tokens no way no how

 

you're using the aux arc literally all the time outside the first pass, which is why you want Norra + TG or stress mechanics

 

after a month of play, I've k-turned absolutely literally 3 times. I counted, because there were very few instances during which it was the right choice

 

Norra herself has absolutely never k-turned

 

Color me unimpressed.  With 1 AG, they're very expensive Tractor-bait.

Norra is really strong, but is very vulnerable to stress mechanics. Both Slicer Tools, to hurt her when she PTLs, and weaponized stress mechanics can really hinder her.

 

I find myself running her alongside Shara with Wingman. Surprisingly effective.

 

 

wait till Cassian Andor

 

he's just better because his wings can move!

Norra is great.  She pretty much single handedly took out a pair Brobots last night.

 

Okay, so this ARC thing has me all mixed up.  I only have one.  How should I build it?

 

 

Norra Wexley: PTL, R2-D2, Vectored Thrusters, Tail Gunner, Alliance Overhaul = 40 pts

 

This is your powerhouse.

 

Braylen Stramm: R3-A2, Vectored Thrusters, Gunner/Tactician, Alliance Overhaul = 31/34 pts.

 

This is your supportive stresshog.
