    Light Show sounds great. Similar to ME Hulk and others with a damage component added to the board manipulation, you can really take advantage of timing this ability.
    Since the damage will hit the target enemy prior to the tiles changing colors, you can plan to down enemy 1 from the damage alone, then the other 2 will be stunned (at 5 covers) for 2 turns.
    You may get plenty of board action, damage, and free AP from the light show. Looking forward to seeing this in action - playing the Shield Training repeatedly.

    Still having issues understanding her yellow it reads "Jubilee's bubbly personality and neverending optimism inspire her team to do their best. Whenever Jubilee makes a match, if she has less health than the target, deal 355 extra damage. If there are at least 5 Charged tiles on the board, this also applies to her allies."

    For her alone the description makes sense the problem is when we get to the 5 charged tiles.  If there are at least 5 charged tiles on the board the damage bonus also applies to her allies.  Whose life total are we now using as the reference, Jubilees or the teammate who is making the match?  I read it as Jubilee but I have not been able to test this.  The answer to this may limit her teammates if you want to use this power to the maximum, an extra 1.3K at max level is good especially on a cascade.  I am still leaning 3/5/5 but she may be the next 4Rocket and Groot, there could be some real damage potential in her yellow.

    It's always about Jubilee's health total. Keep her lower than the targeted enemy. 
    With 5 charged tiles on the board, as long as she has lower health than the front enemy, any teammates matches do the extra damage.  
    At 5 covers in yellow, it only requires 3 charged tiles to qualify. This will be much easier to maintain than the 5 charged tiles requirement.

    @hopper1979 @Rick OShay hit the nail on the head. It's the match damage bonus that applies to her allies, not damage dealt to them.

    In addition, only Jubilee needs to be lower health than her opponents for that requirement to trigger the benefit on her allies.

    Update: I just spoke with one of the developers, and it would appear that Jubilee's allies do in fact need to have less health than the enemy, in order to trigger the bonus match damage. Apologies for the confusion everyone.

    That´s nice to read! I predict that we´ll see many Gambit, Black Bolt, Jubilee teams in next season´s Shield Simulator.

    Sounds like fun. Im looking forward to champing her eventually.

    Perhaps, though America Chavez is a far superior 3rd for that combo than Jubilee.  You can't use Jubilee's purple and BB's green is much better for 1AP more, while Chavez generates critical tiles and bonus passive damage very quickly.  I even like Valkyrie more for that pair since BB's passive will create the necessary damage to activate her CD tile, generating 4AP and stealing 4AP from the enemy, plus she makes yellow attack tiles and has a match damage bonus of her own.


  • hopper1979hopper1979 Posts: 552 Critical Contributor
    That is an interesting debate I think the upper limit for Chavez is higher due to the criticals but if you bring Jubilee on a team against 5 stars you know she will have less health than a target most of the match, so once you meet the charged tile requirements, BB will be optimal for this, everybody will be doing extra damage on the match for a good chunk of the game.  A good cascade and you will easily match the damage of a good critical.  Also the health requirement is easier to pull opposed to Chavez AP requirement especially if the AI gets a lucky drop early on and you cannot get the AP advantage to get Chavez critical going.  Also she brings a good control power with her pink and tile destruction both of which are always good against 5s. 

    I think we will see a lot of both of them in pvp, who is better is probably more play style than anything else.

    What is the best way to use her Purple? It randomly changes colors but it's not very useful at all. I'm curious how others are using it. Right now it looks like a 3 to me


    Edit: I voted her build before I used it.. poor judgment

    I don't have her close to usable, but if you're just looking at the color change itself, i think the only use is as a possible cascade creator and if the enemy is one match away from having enough AP to fire a power, you can use this to potentially block their match.  Other than that, I'm with you, meh...

    Her purple utility is the stun. The colors are a afterthought. 
  • hopper1979hopper1979 Posts: 552 Critical Contributor
    See above that is it with her purple it is a stun anything else is icing on the cake.  :) I do not have enough levels in her to guess if 3/5/5 or 5/3/5 is the way to go it really depends on how that damage mechanic work in the real world for her yellow, on paper it looks good but I have not seen it with the limited play and levels so far.  Her green is very useful even at low levels so that is the definite 5 of the group so far.  
  • Waddles_PinesWaddles_Pines Posts: 582 Critical Contributor
    I think yellow depends on how much HP and match damage she does at higher levels.  If your teammates generate charged tiles, then 5 is an easy choice (assuming her HP isn't that high at higher levels).  If she has too much HP then the yellow won't activate until you've taken a beating.  If the name of the game is speed, you don't want to have to lose HP to gain her powers advantage.  Not sure if that makes any sense...

    It does most of us are speculating because we only have a few covers :)

    @Brigby the transcription is different than the in-game preview for the last level of the green power, which is "4 charged tiles and deals X damage to the enemy team" (regardless of the number of charged tiles)
  • wingXwingX Posts: 181 Tile Toppler
    You can go into battle with injured or undercovered Jubilee, and team with 4*R&G and any other Guardian (preferly 4*Gamora or someone that will not tank Jubilee's colour) and you can dish out large amount of damage on turn 1 or 1st few turn, when Jubilee make a match as her passive yellow is boosted by 4*R&G's strikes.

    That's probably my fault for not making that change in wording more apparent. I'll write out more of the description in the last ability, to emphasize the clarification that there is no minimum Charged tile requirement.

    Why is 3/5/5 the leading vote getter? Isn’t her Yellow power her main selling point?

    To many, yes her yellow should be the main selling point. But it depends on many factors, including enemy health levels, your teams' ability to create charged tiles quickly, whether she tanks her colors or not. 

    1. Without the 3-4 charged tiles on the board: She has to make the match for the extra damage to be qualified, while also having lower health than the target enemy.

    2. With the 3-4 charged tiles on the board: Any ally may make a match for the extra damage to be qualified, but she still needs to have lower health than the target enemy.

    3. If you run her with higher level 4* characters or any 5*s, it's quite hard for Jubilee to tank her own colors. That means no extra damage until you've met the 3 charged tile requisite. The only way to do this fast is with Black Bolt. If you have Bolt, you probably are at the point where Jubilee will not be needed much for her passive, therefore 3/5/5 for the benefit of her active abilities.
