Best Avatar PR Commanders: Obsidian Gathering

Obsidian - Avatar Pandora Rising

Since the site launched, has looked to educate gamers about games that our writers love to play. Over the past few years we have been able to expand from just a single game to several different mobile games including Avatar: Pandora Rising, after getting to preview APR at FoxNext Games in Los Angeles in September 2019. Below we take a look at our Best Avatar PR Commanders series where we break down the different commanders and resources in hopes that the data and our advice will help your gameplay in Avatar: Pandora Rising.

Obsidian is a resource in Avatar: Pandora Rising that is important to the Na’vi. The gathering of Obsidian, whether from a Rally or an individual commander on their own, provides the Obsidian Fragments needed to make weapons in the Weapons Hut including Obsidian Blades and Banshee Rider Helmets.

Obsidian can be acquired by any commander in Avatar: Pandora Rising who has the Gatherer tag, however two commanders specialize in Obsidian – Mo’at and Ralun. So who is the best Na’vi Commander to gather Obsidian? This one is no contest, but let’s look at their stats anyway.

Mo’at – Mo’at is a Epic Commander in Avatar: Pandora Rising and is one of the top Commanders available on the Na’vi side. In addition to her versatility as a Gatherer of both Obsidian and Phalanxia, her defensive boosts are also quite strong. Head to head, Mo’at surpasses Ralun with a Gather Speed range of +12% to +40% at any Obsidian Crags and Gather Skill  of +40 to +150 at any Obsidian Crags. Ralun starts at 5% (solo) and 10% (Rally) and caps at 30% on speed, with a Gather Skill of 20 (solo) and 40 (Rally) that caps at +110. In addition, on the defensive side Ralun sees smaller increases to towers (+2 to +14) compared to a Commander Tower level increase of +7 to +44 for Mo’at and the same with the Troop levels with Ralun’s +2 to +24 far outpaced by Mo’at with +4 to +31.

Ralun – Ralun is an Uncommon Gatherer of Obsidian for the Na’vi whose value drops dramatically after Mo’at is added to any Na’vi player’s roster. She is statistically better in Obsidian Rallies than at solo sites, and her defense does add to Troop levels, a must-have for any defensive battle when gathering resources. However, as shown above, she has to be demoted to your second Obsidian option.


So we ask again, who is the best Na’vi Commander to gather Obsidian?

Mo'at - Avatar Pandora RisingThis one is an easy one based on the numbers. Mo’at is far superior at gathering Obsidian because she is faster and more skilled while also defending more effectively than Ralun. While Ralun is a solid character for early play, if you are fortunate enough to get Mo’at in Avatar: Pandora Rising it would be wise to level her up anytime you can.
