Luke expansion Question

Recommended Posts

Sorry if this has been asked before, google provided no clear answers and as I'm working offshore my connection won't seem to allow the search function to work properly!

Just need a quick answer before I mail my local Shop about ordering some expansions, I haven't played in a while and being away from home I can't check this:# out myself. Is the Luke expansion that was included in the core set the same as the separate expansion pack? Do I gain anything buy purchasing his expansion over what was in the box?

Answers much appreciated guys, Thanks

Luke Skywalker - Jedi Knight is a different expansion.

Luke Skywalker - Hero of the Rebellion comes with the core box and only with the core box, it isn't available separately.

(You will get a different, more powerful Luke, what else you get exactly depends on if you play campaign, skirmish, or with the app. The campaign side mission requires tiles from the Jabba's Realm expansion.)

Much obliged, the suspicion was there as I didn't see a Vader expansion so I thought something was up, maybe I miss read the Luke expansion details.

 

I think I'm going to have a splurge on a whole lot of expansion characters just for the **** of it and get the JR expansion box as well, I'll maybe Order another box and some more characters next time I'm working away as well so I have most of the good expansions and characters for the game as I think my daughter is of the age to start playing with me and the Mrs and the wee man is 3 and has a very very very very (un?) healthy Millennium Falcon obsession and constantly runs around the house belting out the Imperial March. What have we created?!!!

The Legends of the Alliance free app also has a separate campaign for Jabba's Realm, so it's a good expansion to buy whichever game modes you play.

 

That's great to know, it has been a while since I played as the Mrs is back at college but will finish in the summer, I'm trying to get myself sorted for expansions so we can begin to get back in to the game when her studies are done and I would like to have lots of mini's painted on the table when we play! As pointless but cool as that is! I did try the app when it came out and it looked promising, I did not realise that the JR game was also affected by that so it's a good purchase by the sounds of it.

 

Thanks mate!

Just to make sure it's clear, the Luke that comes with the Core box is flavored like this:

He's not particularly force sensitive, and typically uses a blaster (though he does have a lightsaber attack).

 

The Luke in the blister pack is based more on this:

Much more reliant on the lightsaber, able to deflect bullets, etc.

 

Situationally, I'm not sure you can necessarily say Jedi Luke is better, but I tend to prefer him and see him as one of the greatest allies in the game.

Epic reply. The like button is not big enough!

 

Cheers for that!
