In 2017, February was the Month of the Sith in Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes seeing the addition of Darth Nihilus, Sith Assassin and Sith Trooper to the game and more. Earlier this week the EA/CG SWGoH GameChangers released details on reworks of two Sith favorites – Emperor Palpatine and Darth Vader. Now, the Month of the Sith continues as a new character is set to join the SWGoH universe – Sith Marauder. A “Destructive Sith Attacker that takes advantage of all buffs and debuffs in battle,” Sith Marauder continues the theme of the month and features an intriguing kit. Let’s take a look at the new Sith Marauder’s kit and be sure to check out actual gameplay footage in the videos made by our SWGoH GameChangers friends.
His Basic, Strength Through Passion, reads “Deal Physical damage to target enemy and inflict Offense Down for 2 turns,” fitting the debuffs applied by Sith characters theme. Sith Marauder’s lone special attack, Victory Through Power, looks like this:
Deal Physical damage to target enemy and grant all allies Potency Up for 2 turns.
Characters: If this attack scores a Critical Hit, reduce the target’s Max Health by 15% until end of the encounter.
Raid Bosses: This attack ignores Armor.
Finally, Sith Marauder has a unique called The Force Shall Free Me which reads “Sith Marauder has +5% Defense, +5% Health Steal and +5% Tenacity for each buff on all characters. Sith Marauder has +2% Critical Chance, +2% Offense and +2% Potency for each debuff on all characters. When an enemy uses an ability outside of their turn, Sith Marauder gains 20% Turn Meter.”
Looking the kit over, like Vader, Boba Fett, Geonosian Spy and more, when the right pieces fall into place this character can be deadly. For fights with more buffs and/or debuffs involved, Sith Marauder appears to be perfect for either a Vader or Nihilus lead, allowing for increased damage from attacks and increased Health Steal on each attack. For those smart enough to farm Wampa hard, pairing him with a Zeta Darth Vader lead and Sith Marauder could be a “game changer” for your squad.
