One of a select few characters available through Legendary events in Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes, Grand Master Yoda was originally a top-tier character in the game. However, as SWGoH has evolved, Yoda was not able to keep up with the rest of the game despite the addition of Zeta abilities. Now, with the Sith dominating the META, speculation is abound about a Jedi faction rework after EA/CG’s release about Yoda’s rework yesterday. Let’s take a look at the details of the new kit with the changes highlighted in red.
