SWGoH: Best Mods for Darth Revan

Darth Revan - SWGoH


Welcome to the Darth Revan mods guide, the latest article in a series about Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes where we take a look at the best mods for individual characters. While I do not claim to have all of the answers in this game, I do my research and have used every toon I write about extensively, and Darth Revan is one character I have used a lot. These are mod recommendations based on the character’s kit and actual gameplay to help you in your quest to dominate the Galaxy of Heroes holotables.

Darth Revan - SWGoHToday I’ll be looking at mods for Darth Revan. Originally designed to be paired with his Sith Empire buddies HK-47, Bastila Shan (Fallen), Sith Assassin, Sith Trooper and/or Sith Marauder, Darth Revan finally made it into the game in late March of 2019. One of only four characters in Galaxy of Heroes to have 3 Zeta abilities at the time he was released, and the first from the Dark Side, Darth Revan has a kit that is amazingly strong as long as you know how to mod him and his teammates properly. However shortly after Darth Revan was added to the game CG announced the new Star Forge Showdown, a weekend event to unlock Darth Malak which has made Darth Revan even stronger – so much so that two years later in early 2021 Darth Revan and his Sith Empire team continue to be major players in SWGoH. Let’s take a look at the Darth Revan mod recommendations below.

Main Focus: Speed. I cannot emphasize enough how important Speed is for Darth Revan as most endgame players have Darth Revan well above 300, some in the 340s. My recommendation is a Speed set (4 speed mods) all with extremely high Speed secondaries (some of the best you have) and then the fastest set of two mods you can get for the second mod set. While the addition of Darth Malak does not take away the need for Speed on Revan, the strategy of having a super-fast Darth Revan and Bastila Shan (Fallen) remains of great value in the game nearly two years after their release, so I recommend using many of your top Speed mods on both DR and BSF.

Additional Areas to Focus: After Speed, Offense, Critical Chance, Critical Damage, Potency and survivability. While Darth Revan’s kit calls for Potency to enhance his ability to apply debuffs, his Force Storm special applies 5 stacks of the Ferocity debuff to Sith Empire allies which reads in-game as “-15% Defense and Tenacity per stack, +8% Offense and Potency per stack.” Thus, a single application of 5 stacks of Ferocity means +40% Offense and Potency on the character which shows why we do not want to focus too heavily on this important stat. However Offense, unlike Potency, is a stat you can never have too much of. A focus from secondary stats on Offense and Critical Chance, and possibly a Triangle with a Critical Damage primary, can help that stacking Offense hit harder and harder. But make sure not to put too much emphasis on CC as the Lord of the Sith leader ability means Sith Empire allies gain 10% CC for each of their own debuffs. Finally additional survivability, ideally in the form of Health, is the best route for keeping Darth Revan alive given mirror matches will see the other Darth Revan with 100% Defense Penetration, thus making additional Defense less valuable.

Speed Priority: 9/10 – DR is definitely one of those characters you want with some of your best Speed mods, so consider him near the top of your roster along with BSF.

In-game Mod Recommendations: Offense & Critical Chance. I do not have a major disagreement here other than the Speed set is so incredibly necessary to remain competitive and effective with your Sith Empire team, whether in Territory Battles, Territory Wars or the GAC. So while yes, Offense and CC are going to boost Darth Revan’s kit, beefing Revan’s Speed is far more important if you want him to be super effective.

Ideal Mod Setup for SWGoH Darth Revan:

While the Darth Revan META has passed and we now have Galactic Legends in the game, keeping some of your best Speed mods on your Darth Revan remains highly important. At the end of the day, it is about having all of the as much Speed as possible, but I am never a fan of breaking up mod sets. I prefer a Speed set of 4 mods and a Potency set on my Darth Revan, but a Health or CC set will work as well if the Speed is as high as you can get. On the plus/cross mod go with whatever you have the most Speed on as the primary focus – offense, potency or health. With all of this in mind, here are my mod recommendations for Darth Revan:

  • Transmitter (Square) – Speed mod with offense primary and a secondary focus on speed, offense, health and critical chance or potency
  • Receiver (Arrow) – Health/Potency mod with speed primary and a secondary focus on offense, health, protection and critical chance or potency
  • Processor (Diamond) – Speed mod with defense primary and a secondary focus on speed, offense, health and protection
  • Holo-Array (Triangle) – Speed mod with offense or critical damage primary and a secondary focus on speed, offense, health and critical chance or potency
  • Data-Bus (Circle) – Speed mod with health primary and a secondary focus on speed, offense, protection and critical chance or potency
  • Multiplexer (Plus) – Health/Potency mod with potency, health or offense primary and a secondary focus on speed, offense, health and critical chance or potency
