Dowutin Hunter....Worth Making?

Post#1 » Mon Apr 10, 2017 3:24 pm

Does anyone use this guy? Does he have some sort of great value like a bike, jug, or Heavy Soldier?

Not really IMHO. I used a lot of them from HQ (found in crates and old conflicts) and didn't notice anything outstanding. Would make sense at 6-8UC, but for 12 he's just not worth it.

What Sigma said.

He used to be an 'okay' tanky generalist but has never been worth the 12UC, let alone cantina time. 8UC feels like the sweet spot but given the defensive buffs lately I think he'd need a bit of a damage buff to be viable.

I only use him from inventory for "deploy" or cook new ones for "hire" daily goals... or if I am really bored and decide to do a random mashup just to try something new.

I concur with all opinions and uses of the Dowutin Brute stated above.
I once did an attack with 8 Dowutins just to test it. 5 precooked (L1) and 3 in SC (Ls3-8). rather big failure for the cooking time involved. Managed one star by using air and storms on outlying buildings.
Opponent's Sc troops and dekas were duly lured and killed within seconds amid a circle of Dowutins, but then they just marched into turret range and were slaughtered before achieving very much.

due to his limited range, long cooking time, high UC and lack of focus he's currently way inferior to 3 buffed heavies -or maybe even three unbuffed high level heavies. Especially in damage and cooking time.

only for donation crates :D
for defense 2 bikes would be much better. for offence - 1 mhc or 3 heavies.

Thanks for the feedback. Prior to posting this, I thought I might be missing something since when I compared them to Mercs and Twileks, the Dowutin's seemed weaker....but cost twice the UC/Housing Space.

My Dowutins (the ones I have been awarded for free or from a crate 'reward') have a single purpose...to keep my hundreds of Rancors from eating the other stuff in my HQ inventory.

(If a squaddie asks for 1, I'll pull one out and donate, but they otherwise stay exclusively in the HQ)
