Han Solo, Smuggler

Date Reviewed: October 7, 2008

Sith Dragon Han Solo, Smuggler
Cost: 27
HP: 70
DEF: 16
ATK: +10
DAM: 20

Accurate Shot, Opportunist +20

Today we look at the latest Han Solo. This one took a pleasant twist from the regular Hans we get. First off, the stats are close to the rebel storm version. This one is one point less, 10 less HP, -1 DEF, and a +1 ATK with the same DAM.

Both have accurate shot, but the last ability is where Smuggler really stakes a new claim. The new Han not only has opportunist, but opportunist +20, so he is a +14 for 40 DAM! That is a big hit. The other nice thing is that this really carves out a different niche in squads that are largely based on cunning attacks.

Other than base stats, some things of note are that he tied for the cheapest of the Hans with Hantaun, and he is a follower still. This means he is going to fit into a lot of squads and be eligible for commander effects. The downside is that he only has 70HP and no mobile and no evade. He is the only follower Han, since the rebel storm version, that lacks both. This makes him extremely fragile.

When you play him, it makes your opponent really think about what they need to do. Do they take out the cunning person in front of them and then get smacked hard by Han, or do they take him out and leave the cunning person for another round risking their wrath later.

100pts: Its gonna be hard to play him in 100. His fragility combined with the fact you have to let your opponent go first to make the most out of him really hurts. You can try him. It will only take a couple hits to get your points out of him, though, so try him if you want.

150/200pts: He is equally playable in either format. As i said he makes a great compliment to a cunning squad. This Han seems to be custom made for the NR, though. Jaina not only brings him in to the squad, but right there you have a cunning/opportunist pairing. Combine them with the new Wedge and then you have a very hard hitting Han with both mobile AND evade, making him worth much more than his 27 points. You can also use Lando DS and Mara for an additional cunning/opportunist pairing. In a rebel build i play Leia, Senator so he can get back out of line of sight, but a BG can help him just as much. Honestly, most of the time you will see players taking him out and chancing the cunning characters for the next round when possible, so you have to be careful with him.
