Tara vs. Challenge Stars

I was so excited when I first saw Tara's leader ability. Then I tested it out on a challenge mission - letting one of my survivors get hit and then using their charge ability to regain full health before finishing. Even though I finished the mission with all of my characters at full health, I still was docked the star for being injured. I felt robbed.

Is that by design?

Poor Tara's been sitting on the bench ever since. I'm sure she'd love to see a bit of gameplay again one day...

    Yes, it's by design, Tara is meant to help you pass tough missions.

    Please read regarding Tara's ability.

    It works, as long as you get that heal out BEFORE becoming "Bruised"....

    Also, I love the Shooter class, and I love my Tara!

    hmm I was wondering about the same. Thanks for letting me know before I would get upset with it...

    Morning everyone!
    We thought that if the ability did 'un-bruise' survivors, sitting near the exit area for several rounds to gather charge points and heal up before ending every mission would be tedious, unfun, and not the kind of gameplay we want to encourage.

    This did it for me.

    If you prevent the bruising, you can still get more hits then without Tara.
    Just heal up before it bruises.
  • Check out Rositas leader trait then consider using Rosita as leader with Tara and Rick equiped with gold range, gold reduced body shot, silver interrupt weapons and dodge, wrestle, tough skin armor. That combo got me lvl 68, 70-76 in this challenge. 423 stars. Promise its awesome

    I love having Rosita as a leader and then my shooter and Daryl

    I love Tara’s skills and I love her as a shooter! She’s the leader of prison defense I made. Combine her with a hard to take down Bruiser, her trait is invaluable!
