Yoda Dash Attack

Due to Yoda's poor defense (he is actually the weakest hero of all heroes and villains characters)
and due to the rejection from the Devs to increase his defense whether augmenting natural base defense or Star Card damage reduction,
I have been thinking that he could avoid any received damage when using the dash attack.

Do you think this could help Yoda not to be that weak? Please let your thoughts and feedback

    Yoda is a joke. It would be hard to make him good at this point. The only thing he is good at is pushing infantry and pushing heroes off an edge. He is the one hero who does not represent his style at all. His style is about strong attack and dodging, but he has neither.

    To fix him, first you would need to give him an extra dodge like Dooku has, Second you would need to buff his dash attack, 3rd his Opposing the Darkside needs to do 20 damage like every other bonus damage card does, and last his newest starcard needs swapped out for one that gives him damage reduction when dashing similar to the card Luke has. His newest card is useless since they nerfed his Presence ability.

    I'd increase his defense as well. Not too much just a little bit

    You could also make him much more to what he should be by improving his attack speed. His animation is the slowest of all lightsaber-attacks (at least it definetely feels slow). In the movies however, you clearly see that he lands multiple hits in a single jump, he is one of the fastest fighters actually. Imo he should be more like Dooku really: if you open your block it is already too late for you.

    Agree with all the comments here. Yoda uses lightsaber "Form IV, also known as Ataru, the Way of the Hawk-Bat, or The Aggression Form". It is HIGHLY aggressive in nature, and completely destroys naive opponents in 1v1s, but it is weaker against multiple targets especially those using blasters. but he out-dueled Dooku, who was known for his lightsaber skills. Dooku even went on to tell Grievous that if he ever encountered Yoda, not to fight him because he would surely lose.

    We're talking about a Jedi Grandmaster who was at a similar level as Palpatine, the ultimate Sith Lord. The Yoda in the game doesn't do him justice man. We need more people to realise this and spread the word.

    You are totally right
  • I think his dash attack should cancel tracking. He can still get shot at this way, and players who are aiming well enough will still hit him, or can at least punish him before or after his dash.

    As is, the tracking will allow 2 dooku hits, or enough hits from a cluster of gangers to kill you... when you have almost full health...
  • Any beefier of a buff and people cry hes oppressive. Dont let them catch you mentioning lore (thats a dirty word) in an argument to balance a hero...

    I disagree, Yoda got nerfed to come into his current state, so a buff in something else is only fair. His bulk by presence got reduced. To be fair though, with the argument of elder_morpheus it is quite fair to say that he should be more offensive. So instead of buffing his bulk, I'd say buff his attack speed, so that he hits three hits in the time he currently does one and reduce his raw damage output to 50% of what it currently is. This is an essential +50% damage buff. With higher stamina drain.

    However, that'd of course mean that his offensive stamina drains faster too. And it'd make him weaker to blasters, as he needs to watch his stamina alot more. So it's rather a rework than a buff. You see my point?
