Health: 12392

Basic Abilities: Crit Armor, Melee Bonus, Bleed


Armor Buffs provide 100% Critical Resistance.
Every 6 seconds if Optimus Primal has no Armor Buffs he will generate an Armor Buff, reducing damage from attacks by 2~4%. This ability stops if Optimus Primal is Armor Broken.

When Attacked:

20% chance to gain an Armor Buff, reducing damage from attacks by 2~4% with a maximum of 10 stacks of Armor. This ability requires at least one active Armor Buff and stops if Optimus Primal is Armor Broken.

Blocked Melee Attacks:

Blocked Melee Hits have a 30% chance to grant a Melee Buff, increasing Melee Damage by 10~18% for 6 seconds.

Heavy Attacks:

Converts all Armor Buffs to Melee Buffs, increasing Melee Damage by 10~18% for 6 seconds.

Signature Ability – Isn’t That Just Prime

Optimus Primal hopes for the best, but always prepares for the worst. Damaging Debuffs have shorter durations and recover health when they expire.

Damaging Debuffs expire 8% faster for each Armor Buff on Optimus Primal. Optimus Primal gains 1~5% of his max Health each time a Bleed on him expires.

Special Attacks:

Special 1 – Law of the Jungle

Optimus Primal launches into the air to bring justice to his foes.

If Optimus Primal has received any Bleeds this fight he will inflict Bleed on the opponent that deals 30~38% of Attack over 4 seconds. The strength of the Bleed increases by 20% for each Bleed inflicted on Optimus Prime this fight.

Special 2 – Beast Warrior

The quickest way to peace, is to end the battle quickly.

50% chance each sword hit to inflict Bleed, Dealing 40~60% of Attack as damage over 5 seconds.

Special 3 – Gorilla Warfare

When it comes to dealing with Predacons, sometimes brutal is best.

Optimus Primal’s rage grants him the maximum amount of Armor Buffs.
100% chance to inflict Attack Down, reducing the opponent’s Attack Rating by -20% for 32 seconds.

Synergy Bonuses:

Allies – Mutual – Dinobot, Rhinox

+2~8% Armor Rating

Enemies – Mutual – Waspinator

+2~8% Attack

Beast Purification – Mutual – All Beast Wars Characters

Heavy Attacks of Beast Wars characters grant 4~20% Attack Rating for 5 seconds and Purify Damaging Debuffs as long as there are 2 or more Beast Wars bots on Primal’s team.

Strong Match-ups:

Bonecrusher – Bonecrusher will lose the ability to land Critical Hits and the Bleeds he inflicts will soon become an advantage for Optimus Primal’s first Special Attack.
Ironhide – Ironhide’s greatest strength is his ability to deal out incredible Critical Hits. Optimus Primal will render the Demolition king unable to tear anything apart.

Weak Match-ups:

Starscream – Starscream will tear through Optimus Primal’s Armor and inflict Critical Hits while the Ape’s Armor is Broken.
Megatron – Megatron’s Fused Armor Break will block Optimus Primal’s Crit Armor from activating.

Recommended Modules for Optimus Primal:

Security Module – Increasing Optimus Primal’s Armor will make him more survivable and give him more opportunity to use his high attack rating against the opponent.
E.M.I. Module – Optimus Primal’s biggest disadvantage is his reliance on Melee Attacks. This module will help ensure he can thwart ranged opponents like that pesky Starscream.

Saw this report with the Primal chips, and man am I so excited, especially with how disappointing Bumblebee's limited availability was. Can't wait to get [strike]the boss monkey[/strike] big bot!
