Read on for a rundown of everything included in the Holiday Preview Wave!

Your First Steps

Featuring some of the most iconic characters from the classic Star Wars trilogy, the Luke Skywalker Starter Set and the Boba Fett Starter Set are the perfect place to start your Star Wars: Destiny collection! Find adventure with the classic team of Luke Skywalker  (Legacies, 31) and Han Solo (Legacies, 46), or hunt your targets with the deadly Boba Fett  (Legacies, 19) and a Veteran Stormtrooper  (Legacies, 13). With easily grasped mechanics and powerful cards, there’s no better place to start your journey into Star Wars: Destiny! Preview these starter sets here!

A New Legacy

The Star Wars universe is a galaxy of change. Fans have watched regimes rise and fall as the legacy of their favorite characters shifts with the dramatic twists of the generation-spanning saga.

Now, you can experience those iconic moments with Legacies, a new 160-card booster set for Star Wars: Destiny! Legacies expands on the themes found in the first three sets with new mechanics, card types, and symbols!

Yellow characters in Legacies are as crafty as ever. Saw Gererra  (Legacies, 49) can discard random cards from your opponent’s hand while dealing indirect damage. Of course, you can also target your own hand if you have high-cost cards to guarantee big damage. After all, as an extremist, Saw Gerrera is willing to put it all on the line to save the dream of the rebellion and defeat his foes. Preview the Yellow cards found in Legacies here!

Meanwhile, characters in tune with the Force defeat foes in their own way. Palpatine, Darth Sidious  (Legacies, 4) can discount your events as a Power Action. A Power Action is an ability that can only be used once per round. These abilities are often extremely strong, and Palpatine's is no exception. By letting you play an event from your hand, decreasing its cost by one for every different type of damage you have showing on your dice, Palpatine becomes extremely economical, allowing you to play expensive cards like Rise Again  (Spirit of Rebellion, 76) at a reduced price. Preview the Blue cards of Legacies here!

You may also dive into the military might of the Star Wars galaxy with Legacies' Red characters. Few forces in the Empire are as intimidating as Grand Moff  Tarkin (Legacies, 12). Tarkin commands your forces, focusing your efforts into utter destruction for your foes. As a Power Action, Tarkin can remove two of your dice showing the same symbol to deal four indirect damage to an opponent. Indirect damage is a new symbol introduced in Legacies that deals damage to your opponent, and allows them to decide how it is distributed between their characters. With Tarkin, no matter how the damage is distributed, your opponent’s characters will fall before the might of the Empire. Preview the Red cards of Legacies  here!

A New Legacy

All these cards and more await you in Legacies. Get a sneak peek at a new legacy with the Holiday Preview Wave, hitting Europe on December 15th and in North America on January 11th!
