Hi all,

As the title says I'm wondering whether there is, somewhere, a list of all the ships/pilots ranked according to their pilot skill?

Something like
All the PS1 are...
All the PS2 are...
etc.

Thanks in advance.

tom.

None that I know of, but in general, Imperial ships have generic pilots with PS 1 and 3, and unique ones above, while Rebel ships almost always have generic pilots at PS 2 and 4.

ninja lol DB, I just ran and got my cards and you already beat me to it!

So, i'll just leave this other valuable link found in Files by contributor Henry that lists the pilots by skill, too, but includes other stats, all in one convenient location. Great reference material.

I'm sure it's me, but I don't see Luke on DB Draft's list.

Also, would it be possible to list the cards that can modify PS - I know there are a couple at least?

Roark (Rebel HWK-290) makes another friendly at range 1-3 have PS12 at the beginning of the combat phase (atbotcp).
Veteran Instinct (EPT) gives +2PS (permanently, barring Injured Pilot damage card or other modifications listed here).
Swarm Tactics (EPT) allows a ship to share its PS with a friendly at range 1 atbotcp.
Decoy (EPT) allows a ship to swap PS with a friendly at range 1-2 atbotcp.
There's a Scum HWK-290 who makes an opposing ship's PS = 0 atbotcp.
Theres a damage card that makes PS=0 starting next turn (but permanent after that).

This held true for waves 1-2 (with the exceptions being the rarely played Tempest TIE Advanced and Outer Rim Smuggler). But as you can see in the lists above, that has changed considerably. Strangely, the Rebels have no generics above PS4, while Imperials and Scum each have a generic at PS5 and the Imps even have one at PS6 (who could get bumped to PS8 via Vet Instinct). Also, the Rebels and Scum have some unique pilots at PS3, while the Imps uniques start showing up at PS4.

Aye, I was surprised by my rule of thumb holding so little merit when faced with actual data I guess my impression didn't change because TIE Fighters are still the backbone of many Imperial lists, and B-Wings and X-Wings are the foundation of many Rebel lists - everything else seems to be "not basic stuff" in my mental model

Don't forget:
Enhanced Scopes (System Upgrade) During the Activation phase, treat your pilot skill as "0".
