Affiliations: Heroes, Mutants, X-Men
  
"Raised by a non-mutant family, Lorna Dane struggles with embracing her powers and Mutant heritage - especially since her father is Magneto. Her complicated identity has led Polaris down many different paths, and so the mistress of magnetism often plays both ally and enemy to other Mutants."

    That Green passive looks deadly. When champed she does 135 per special tile (either team) every turn as passive damage. So at 10 tiles that's 1350 and 20 tiles that's 2700 a turn.
    As mentioned above, when paired with Cardusa she will be devastating since the board will flood with tiles. Wait till she shows up in Simulator with these 2 in the challenge node. LOL
    She might even make a solid partner to Grocket/Juggs in PvE over Gamora since she will deal 945 a turn (7x135 + presumably the strike tile values on top of that so likely 1500+) and every time you match one of your own strikes (or any special tile really) she will create 2 more for you adding to her damage. Plus her Blue provides a handy stun like Gamoras does.

    Wow. This a bomb tool kit. 
  • Dirtytactics22Dirtytactics22 Posts: 16 Just Dropped In
    She looks like she would play well with gritty.
    Hey @IceIX any chance of a sneak peek for September?? Pretty please 
  • AnonAnon Posts: 1,214 Chairperson of the Boards
    Perfect rainbow with Apocalypse. Use his Black to blow up 4 protects and nuke the enemy. Then she nukes the enemy and makes 8 strike tiles. Plus stun immunity to boot.

    I'd love to take her into Sim with KittyPocalypse.

    Excellent 4. Great work devs!

    That Green is going to be a HUGE problem.
    I can't tell if the Blue is PVP-great or not. You can pair her with Bishop, making it stun problematic, but now you've brought two 4's. So, it's probably manageable in a way it wouldn't have been if she had been released as a 5.
    The other power is okay. It's kinda Prowler-y.

    I'm having a hard time seeing the value.

    She only has 12k health, BRB just needs to make 2 blue matches to knock her with clash.

    Maybe when she is boosted that's a different story. 

    I will cast full judgement after i level her and use her for a bit.

    Looks good for those in the 4* tier.  Can't wait to try her out with a variety of others to see how she holds up!
  • tonypqtonypq Posts: 241 Tile Toppler
    I like her toolkit, the low health means she won't always last long enough to ramp things up often, but still seems more fun than half the 4s we have. Wish she was a 5 actually but what can you do. 
  • VhailorxVhailorx Posts: 5,208 Chairperson of the Boards
    Pretty good kit.  If her blue cost 6ap, then she might challenge gamora and Iceman for the role of 4* stunner in pve.  She will play nicely with thorkoye as she provides lots of opportunities to proc okoye passively.
    Otherwise, I note that the trend of low-health, high-power 4* continues.  But 4* as a class is characters remain mostly superfluous, and additional player/dev time spent on expanding the tier is basically wasted.
  • AnonAnon Posts: 1,214 Chairperson of the Boards
    I was wondering why everyone was so high on her Green since I thought it only counted friendly tiles. Now that I see its ALL special tiles, that really changes things. I wish she was a 5.
  • Tiger_WongTiger_Wong Posts: 485 Mover and Shaker
    4-turn stun for only 7 AP? Yes sir. 

    Those 2 passives are gravy. 
  • PiMacleodPiMacleod Posts: 1,255 Chairperson of the Boards
    Um... anyone else scared of the possibility of her teamed with BRBitty?  I mean, match a FRIENDLY protect, make 2 more?  And of course, add in BRB's passive stuff with that.

    Of course, if this shifts away from Bishop a tad, I won't be upset.  But still -- looks very good.

    I mean, even if the enemy just focuses on her first, that gives time for BRBitty to ramp up their thing.

    Polaris being a mutant gives Kitty even more chances of doing her SAP boosting, as well.

    4/4/5 seems like the best build, right?

    Nice! I’ve been waiting on Polaris for awhile! Powers look really strong also, I imagine she’ll see use with Apocalypse as previously mentioned.

    Most of the time I see BRBitty, it's teamed with Bishop, so I still have to deal with the third character before taking them on.
    Boosted and mega-champed, maybe she's a problem, but otherwise I wouldn't be worried with her on that team, no.

    I may try her with Carbage/Apocalypse and see how that goes.
  • DeNappaDeNappa Posts: 1,132 Chairperson of the Boards
    The art for her is... ugly.

    I think it’s going to be special tile chaos and yes , I’m very afraid
