WOW! I was looking forward to her before the stats
were available, but now that they are out...Just
WOW! She is my single favorite piece from this
set. I am not fond of all these high cost Jedi
because it makes it hard to run several of them in a
squad, but is she ever worth it.
Stat wise she is extremely solid. 130 HP means she
is going to take some punishment. The 20 DEF is
very solid, but add in lightsaber duelist and you
might as well give here a base 24 DEF. The +13 is a
bit low, but when you add in her crowd fighting, she
can get some insanely high attack values. With the
new Shaak, though, you now add in cunning attack.
When she swings first she swing big and will not
miss. She has the standard double attack. She also
maintains her stealth so you can give here evade
with the help of the Bith Vigo.
Her force powers are incredible. She has the
standard force renewal from this set, but she has
gained a lot of experience from her older self and
now has MotF 2. With Block and Riposte, she can
block two attacks, or block an attack and riposte,
or simply riposte both for 40 more DAM. If she
attacked first that is up to 100pts of damage!
Shaak Ti is absolutely incredible.
100pts: I have not seen here here, but with the
right support, i think she can make a real impact.
She can block both of Bane's attacks and hit him big
if she wins initiative. Give her CS Yoda for the
extra block reroll. Run a power shooter to weaken
other targets first. Run a Bith for some stealth
evading. Heck, Run her with Han RH and you can get
her to swing for 40 DAM a pop! Her affinity to the
rebels gives her so many possibilities. She can
have a real impact here.
150/200pts - I am going to lump these together
because there are jsut so many options that it is
incredible. Run here with republic help or Rebel
help. Either way, she only get stronger the more
characters you add. She works with Princess Leia
and her extra attack, so with cunning she not only
wont miss, but she can swing for 40 DAM (50 if you
run Han RH with her). She can have some nice
stealth republic builds with her and Quinlan (among
other stealth help)
I honestly think she is one of the best figures from
this set. I wish we had some more mid 30pt Jedi to
run swarms, but i would gladly pay 47pts for Shaak
Ti's package any day!

Hello fellow sentients! Stilla back with another
review for you. Today is the new and improved Shaak
Ti, Jedi Master. I wasn't a big fan of the original.
Most early Unique Jedi fell short for 1 reason or
another. The old Shaak suffered from low hitpoints,
lower stats and only a single attack. This Shaak
makes this character playable for more than just her
First off, the stats: 130 hitpoints isn't bad in
general. For the cost of 47, I wish she had a little
more. Defense of 20 is respectable, if not a little
low. Keep in mind that against Jedi, she has 24
defence from Lightsaber Dualist. 20 damage is
standard for lightsabers. Attack of +13 is not great
but is still decent. She may need a little luck with
the dice but she should hit more often than not.
For special abilities we have Double attack, which
should help her do a little more damage than her
original version. Affinity to the Rebels gets her in
with them too. Crowd fighting gives her a +2 attack
for each other adjacent character other than her
target. This was handy with her old version as it
had sweep. This one doesn't have sweep but the
attack bonus is worth getting her next to multiple
people. Try using the Doombot to drop her into a
group and see what happens. Cunning Attack is
awesome. I love cunning as well as opportunist. Any
character that has either of these abilities can
dish out a little more pain per strike. Cunning
turns her into a +17 for 60 Damage! Not too bad. Her
stealth is still the biggest reason to play her.
More on that in a minute.
For Force powers she has 2 points, renewal 1 and
MotF2. Block helps her stand up to Jedi. If she can
hit her blocks, she should be OK against most of the
"non-elite" Jedi. She also has Riposte. Riposte
seems to be the better bet to me. I have an easier
time rolling an attack than a save most of the time.
an 11 or higher is needed for the block. Depending
on what you are attacking, you may only need a 6-8
to hit. Better odds means better chances of success.
The biggest reason I play Shaak is for her Stealth.
Her, Quinlan Vos, Infiltrator and Saesee Tiin get
teamed up with a Bith Black Sun Vigo, Mas Amedda and
Yoda from Clone Strike. For those not familiar with
this build, the BBSV gives pieces with Stealth;
Evade. Adding Clone Strike Yoda give them all a
re-roll if they fail an evade save. Since there are
only 3 Jedi, at present, with Stealth, the squad
needs as much damage output from its 3 main pieces
as possible. Up until now, Quinlan had Double attack
and Shaak/Saesee had only 1. Now we can get a little
more output from your 3 main figs. Shaak now becomes
the cornerstone of this very frustrating build. She
looks good, she plays good and she fits in rather
Rating: 4. Not Uber, but defiantly useful and
Sculpt: 2.5. Not that great, almost Tarzan-ish.
