UNIT NAME: Padawan Obi-Wan
CATEGORIES: Attacker, Galactic Republic, Jedi

Key Attributes:

  • High critical chance attacker
  • Punches you in the face with a Lightsaber
  • He has his own exclusive datacron
  • Omicron for Conquest designed for improving battle win rates and covering some feat requirements
  • Devilishly handsome


  • We knew we wanted to do a Phantom Menace beat for the 25th anniversary of that film, which would include “poncho Qui-Gon” (our placeholder name for Master Qui-Gon). With that and Queen Amidala on the roadmap, it made synergistic sense to include some one who worked thematically with both of them.
  • We have three other versions of Obi-Wan (General Kenobi, Jedi Master Kenobi, and “Old Ben” Kenobi), but we never had the Padawan version in the game obtainable.
  • We had some choices for what item his Relic would be, but took the opportunity to make it his Phantom Menace lightsaber as it is iconic to this version of Obi-Wan and this would be our only opportunity to include it on a character (since Maul kicked it down a shaft). ["Cause he's an ****" -Meat]
  • Please play with sound on (and music!) in the final tier of his Marquee (requires Relic 5 Padawan Obi-Wan). We pulled out all the stops for this homage. As a matter of fact, you should just always have sound on, our sound design team is fantastic!

Strategy Tips:

  • For his Special 2, Sweeping Assault, if Queen Amidala is present this attack deals damage twice. Importantly however, its order of operations is: First Damage -> Defense Down -> Second Damage.
  • Padawan Obi-Wan’s offensive capabilities are quite potent, but he has very few defensive options. Using the rest of his team to keep him safe can be key to victory.


I won’t have Queen Amidala right away, what utility does Padawan Obi-Wan (and Master Qui-Gon) have?
POW and MQG are “hero units” in the upcoming Battle for Naboo raid, meaning they are meant to perform better in the new raid.
They are both Galactic Republic Jedi and have callouts to one another in their kits so as a pair they should do well under any leader who cares about Galactic Republic/Jedi.
For Padawan Obi-Wan’s unique ability it says, “At the start of battle, Padawan Obi-Wan gains 25% Critical Chance for each other Galactic Republic ally”, does Queen Amidala’s decoy count for this (assuming she has the Omicron active)?.
No, the Decoy does not count in this instance.
How do I get the exclusive Padawan Obi-Wan Datacron?
It’s a “First Time” reward for the penultimate tier of his Marquee (Requiring a 7* Padawan Obi-Wan)
