Tactics: General Kenobi Leads the Charge

You probably didn't need advice on how to run Rex, you've probably mastered your Phase I and II Clones before I even wrote my articles, and you're probably stomping some people with your Republic lists; however, if you're anything like me, Obi-Wan on the other hand is a bit of an enigma. You're really struggling to find a good role for Obi as well as a slot in your lists, what exactly is he supposed to do and how are you supposed to use him? He doesn't really mesh well enough with your Clones like Rex, he isn't a straight forward beat stick like the Saber tank or other Force-users, and the only real synergy that's self-evident is his ability to tank hits for others. What are you supposed to do with that?

Make sure you at least say this iconic line once when you use Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Trust me, you aren't alone and that's the point of today's article! Getting the most out of Obi-Wan, because, honestly, he really is a kind of odd piece in the grand scheme of the Republic right now (hopefully future releases give him a bit more obvious role), but don't worry! We're going to dive deep to find out what Obi-Wan can do for your Republic lists and how you can get a whole lot of utility and fun out of him.
