Kylo Attack Speed

I’ve been playing Kylo awfully a lot lately and have realized that he has some factors that I believe make him too weak. Kylo could use a slight (and I mean slight…nothing too OP) increase to his attack animation. His saber only does 125 damage and he also appears to have a lot of hit registration issues in my opinion. I personally believe Kylo is in a weak state and could use the slightest buff to improve his gameplay.

  • It's not him the issue, the issue is heroes like Luke with braindead swing speed.
    Rather than buff his swing speed nerf the likes of Luke.

    Kylo is absolutely fine

    He has two of the best abilities in the game, Pull and Freeze. And his Frenzy is a fantastic throwaway easy damage pressure tool

    Kylo needs no buffs

  • IF every hero/villain had his swing speed the game would be much better.

    I agree that he needs a very tiny swing speed increase. His animations are slow, which means his attacks are easily dodged.

    Yoda and Kylo both need a swing speed increase. Currently, Kylo has a minimum of 1.8 attacks per second, and a maximum of 2. This should simply be increased to 2 attacks per second for every strike. It would be much more functional, and not OP because 2 attacks per second is still below average. All of the LS sabers except Yoda have 2.2 attacks per second IIRC.
  • He has Frenzy with short CD. His swings are fine. Other sabers need swing speed toning down.
    ''The difference between a fall and a sacrifice is sometimes difficult, but I feel he understood that difference, more than anyone knew. The galaxy would have fallen if he had not gone to war. Perhaps he became the Dark Lord out of necessity to prevent a greater evil''

    Yeah, I really don't see why others above view him as "overpowered". The slightest adjustment of his attack speed would improve his gameplay for the better. His abilities are relatively balanced but you can't just rely on abilities to judge a character.
  • His swing speed is fine. Add in jump slashes to increase his swing speed, if you need.

    He's on the verge of being weak imo. Relies on his abilities about as much as Anakin except he doesn't have the health equivalence. They didn't really buff Kylo. His frenzy usually kills regardless of how much damage they give it. But now he has to stand still to use it. We've gotten used to it but it's silly to think they did this. His pull needs a card to do any type of damage, and it's ONLY 50. Anakin does 100 WITHOUT cards. Freeze was nerfed a long time ago. His damage is average and his swing speed is below that. He's got a good moveset but he's not special imo. I think it shows that the dark side isn't as strong as people make them out to be. In HvV it is a different story but that's because the combination of everyone's abilities.

  • I realize now my comment probably didn’t make much sense.

    After a jump slash, a saber can instantly slash again when they land. Doing the jump slash into regular slash is faster than just slashing twice (with most heroes). It also keeps you more mobile. There are some other benefits, but I don’t want to type forever.

    Here’s a clip where I demonstrate this a few times;

  • He has good abilites hes fine. Although slow swing speed is the main reason my Kylo sits at 41

    I never found Kylo to be "too weak" but I found his power of darkness card nerf absolutely unnecessary. I was able to punish a mindless Luke easier than at his current state and go toe to toe Ani spammer.

    Still miss his 9 strike frenzy...even though it mostly hit air...it looked cooler. IMHO either bring back 9 strikes so he can really clear in GA or give the OG PoD card damage back...so even his frenzy is a dud...he can do some damage!
  • I think you're playing him wrong. Kylo is not a tank hero, you can't play him like you'd play Luke or Vader. Use his abilities at the right time, strike when needed and don't spam with him, it's not necessary to do so.
    It's very satisfying to freeze and allow blasters or Palpatine to attack during freeze, go in for kill shot if it's necessary. Feel him out and play him like he's meant to be played, rather than how you want.
    Took me a while to figure him out.
    Agreed jump attack is awesome if you learn to land it.
  • Kylo is a top 3 villain in this game. If you know where to use him and *how* to use him, speed is not an issue. Slashing in the air makes you travel further, and he’s still faster than 70% of the blaster heroes.


  • He's probably most balanced hero in the game. Leave him alone.
  • He can't use a lightsaber 😂

    I'd also suggest an ability cool down reduction. Why do Freeze and Pull have cool downs of over 20 seconds each, yet Frenzy has a 10 second cool down?

    Decrease the cool down of Pull and Freeze to 16 seconds each, but increase the cool down of Frenzy to 14 seconds.
  • His lightsaber looks like a child made it.
  • If I knew how to post video clips from my Xbox I would lol. I have some pretty fun Kylo moments.
  • @StarLillie I usually save clips to my phone from the Xbox app. There's an option next to the clip. Not sure if it works here though.

    I like the fast frenzy cooldown. It helps a lot because of how much I get launched into the air or my hits dont register. It makes up for the inconsistency of frenzy when I'm able to use it again so quickly.
