Heroic Moment ability

Hey guys, just wanted someone to clarify this for me - I don't understand what the Heroic Moment ability is, not the heroic legacy abilities (Force choke etc) but the ability itself, the one you need to use to be able to then use things like force choke (not sure if thats right). How do you obtain it or does it come with the legacy heroic abilities?

Thanks :)

Really? It's an ability everyone gets somewhere after level 10 that allows you to reset the CD timer on one of your stuns or CCs and usually something else like a small heal over time for your companion and you. It's on a 20 minute cooldown.

FYI It will be changing with the v1.2 Legacy System. Heroic Abilities will be linked to the Heroic Moment.

 

After one of your characters completes Chapter 3, that character gets to pass on a special ‘Heroic Ability’ to all the characters in his Legacy. Powerful Sith Warrior in your Legacy? His Jedi children can "Force Choke" enemies. Father was a high ranking Imperial Agent? Call in some old favors and request "Orbital Strikes" from Imperial warships. Your sister is a notorious Smuggler? She taught you that… special… kick that only Smugglers know.

 

Some of you may be concerned about Heroic Abilities making the game unbalanced or just looking wrong if used frequently. We had this in mind during development, so as a result Heroic Abilities can only be used while you are using your class’ Heroic Moment ability. These are abilities you already have that require an active companion to use and that currently boost your regeneration while active, allowing you to take on tougher opponents.

 

By requiring you to use these abilities with a companion present, we ensure that people who play multiple characters do not gain an advantage during the end game or in Warzones. By also only allowing Heroic Abilities during the brief window of time that a Heroic Moment ability is active, they remain a relatively rare occurrence. You won’t see Jedi running around spamming Force Choke all the time.

 

Heroic Abilities are very useful for leveling up new characters, for taking on tough bosses and PvE content as well as being handy roleplaying additions. Our intention is not to upset end game balance with them, and hopefully you will agree.
