The second batch of Master Kenobi Requirements are here. On April 28th Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi was announced for Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes. You can read more about the initial reveal here.
The characters required to unlock the Jedi Master include Qui Gon Jinn, Clone Sergeant, General Grievous, IG-100 Magnaguard, and Wat Tambor. Qui Gon Jinn, an obvious choice when it comes to characters that would be required. He is not being used in-game due to an outdated kit and overall powercreep. As a result, this requires players to artificially level him up to a minimum of Relic 3. This is also the case with the Clone Sergeant, although he is a pilot of a ship which gives players some benefit to leveling him up the required Relic 5.
General Grievous, the Droid General of the Separatist Alliance, is an incredible character in-game. He is the leader of a power droid army team that is a standard defensive squad seen in Grand Arena. Additionally, he is the Fleet Commander for the Separatist fleet in the ship’s game mode. Out of all the characters in the batch of requirements, the Good General is definitely seen as a bone being thrown by the developers. This is because most high-end players already have him at the required Relic 7 or higher. Alongside General Grievous is the IG-100 Magnaguard, his personal bodyguard droid. He is the tank in the Separatist Droid team and most high-end players also have him at Relic 5.
The Second Batch of Master Kenobi Requirements Are Here
The last character of this batch of requirements is Wat Tambor, Leader of the Techno Union and member of the Separatist Council. His inclusion has come largely out of left field and as a result may be problematic for a large portion of the community. This is because of how you acquire him, which is through the Geonosis Territory Battle. A certain mission must be completed with a team of Geonosians to earn shards to unlock Wat Tambor. However, in order to even participate in the Territory Battle, you must be in a Guild with a high enough collective player power score. The grind to get Wat to seven starts, the maximum, and level him up past gear level eleven takes a long time even with every member of the guild doing the mission. So requiring him at Relic 7 could be seen as quite a steep ask.
Overall, this set is arguably better than the first round in terms of the average player being able to meet the requirements. There is no required Relic 8 characters which remain only obtainable by the top end guilds. There may be characters like Qui Gon Jinn which the developers make you gear up specifically for Obi-Wan. However, this is in large part par for the course as we’ve seen with the last four Galactic Legends. The last wave of requirements is set to be unveiled on June 9th.
