SWGoH: Best Mods for Darth Vader

Today I’ll be looking at mods for one of the hardest to obtain characters in SW:GoH, Darth Vader. Darth Vader - SWGoH - ModsOnce a powerful Jedi, Vader fell to the dark side and was a major player during the days of the Galactic Emperor, playing a key role in the genocide of the Jedi Order. In SWGoH Vader’s Zeta ability, Inspiring Through Fear makes him a great leader, but even without it, he can fit into Sith and Empire squads with ease.

Main Focus: Darth Vader’s base stats are almost all in the mid-range tier, with the one glaring outlier being potency. Force Crush can inflict three damage over time effects and speed down on the opposing team, so increasing his potency is a must. Once your potency is high enough to reliably land the debuffs, focus on increasing speed, to land them, and smash the enemy with Culling Blade more often.

SWGoH - Darth Vader - Best ModsAdditional Areas to Focus: Because of the mechanics of Culling Blade, a small damage increase can make a huge difference, so your secondary focus should be on critical chance and offense. Health and protection are good choices too, if you’re having trouble staying alive, but Vader has a decent amount of survivability to begin with.


Ideal Mod Setup for SWGoH Darth Vader:

I find using a potency set with Darth Vader is enough to debuff most of the time, with two crit chance bonuses giving a big damage boost, which can be increased further through secondary stats:

  • Transmitter (Square) – Potency/Crit Chance mod with offense primary; focusing on speed, crit chance, and offense secondaries.
  • Receiver (Arrow) – Potency/Crit Chance mod with speed primary; focusing on potency, crit chance, and offense secondaries.
  • Processor (Diamond) – Potency/Crit Chance mod with defense primary; focusing on speed, crit chance, and offense secondaries.
  • Holo-Array (Triangle) – Potency/Crit Chance mod with crit damage primary; focusing on speed, crit chance, and offense secondaries.
  • Data-Bus (Circle) – Potency/Crit Chance mod with protection primary; focusing on speed, crit chance, and offense secondaries.
  • Multiplexer (Plus) – Potency/Crit Chance mod with potency primary; focusing on speed, crit chance, and offense secondaries.

      ^ This so much, I love your mod guides, they’re simple but useful asf! Please don’t stop that you have people here that really appreciate them

  2. Can you provide numbers of where the potency an speed should be for Vader or any of the characters?

    • My Vader is at 176 speed, 44.25% CC and 65% Potency and is very effective, but is not setup to be in the Arena.
