The nine dice attack

Recommended Posts

With wave 10 we can get up to a nine dice attack!

 

The List:

Norra Wexley + Swarm Leader + Finn + Alliance Overhaul

Shara Bey + Adaptability (up) + R3 Astromech + Operations Specialist + Alliance Overhaul

Jan Ors + Lando Calrissian

 

Fly Norra with her buddies close to her into range 1 of the defender. Norra and Shara both take target locks onto the Defender. Jan Ors uses Lando to get an evade token.

 

During the attack phase Jan Ors will miss her attack to trigger Operations Specialist to assign Norra a focus token. Then Shara will cancel one of her eye results to get an evade token from R3 Astromech.

 

Then Norra will attack: 2 dice primary weapon, +1 from range 1, +1 from Alliance Overhaul, +1 from Jan Ors, +2 from Swarm Leader, +1 blank result from Finn, +1 eye result from Norra’s ability using her target lock. Norra still has a focus token and Shara's target lock to fully modify this nine dice attack.

 

 

You can get around the Operations Specialist if Norra already had a target lock on the defender from a previous turn and she takes a focus action.

 

Off course there are a several conditions needed to trigger this nine dice attack, like Lando rolling an evade, Shara rolling an eye for the R3 Astromech, and all having the defender inside their firing arcs. But with wave 10 we might see this nine dice attack happening!

You have about 60% of getting any eye with Shara, or any evade with lando. Without them you lose one or two red dice in Norra.

Again, approximately 36% of 9 red dice, 48% of 8 red dice and 16% of 7 red dice.

 

And that without regen, and with a boat (Jans) that has a difficult time for keeping up with his teammates (because dial and stress).

 

 

 


Alternatively "only" 8 red dice, but constant, and with more viable partners.

 

Norra Wexley + R2-D2 + Swarm Leader + Finn + Alliance Overhaul (41)

Shara Bey + R5-K6 + Push the Limit + Jan Ors + Alliance Overhaul (35)

Ahsoka Tano + Push the Limit + Sabine's Masterpiece + Recon Specialist (24)

 

Shara take a TL and a focus, and Jan change the focus into a evade.

Ahsoka take an evade and 2 focus (thanks to RS), so she can give an extra action to Norra.

Norra take a TL + Focus

 

 

When Norra shoot, she spend the two evades of her "wingwomen", spend her TL for an extra eye, and Finn give an extra blank. 

2 (base) + 1 (Alliance Overhaul) +1 (range one) + 1 (extra eye) + 1 (extra blank) + 2 (swarm leader), and she still can use her focus and the Shara TL for modding all the dice.

 

One less red dice, but more easy to obtain. With harder Norra and Shara thanks to R2D2 and Jans Ors crew, and a Ashoka with recon also better in her own than a naked Jans Ors.

 

R2-D2, Recon Special and R5-K6 are not essential to this trick, so you can play with 9 points for even greater effect if you can find a way. I think those are 9 positive points for the boats in general, but maybe not the best:


Regen for Norra as the main target of the enemy, if she fly in swarm with her mates, she will do the same green maneuvers post PtL.

R5-K6 and recon specialist, to give the wingwomen some actions after push Norra, and more potential in their own (and still some synergy) when Norra is down.

Jan/Cool Hand

 

This is a more reliable way to get that evade token indeed. The downside is you'll get the combo off only once. But I guess this nine dice attack is not something you'll be able to pull of multiple times per game anyways ;-).

It's true the odds of pulling this nine dice attack off are very low. But I'm looking forward for someone to pull this of in a real game.

I like your alternative list. More solid and consistent. But indeed, "only" 8 red dice ;-)
