SWGoH Relic Review: HK-47

SWGoH - HK-47

Gaming-fans.com has been a staple in the Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes community since the beginning. From our Mod Guides and breaking news as a EA GameChanger to our Sith Raid Guide and more, our site seeks to help educate players about this highly complex mobile game. With Relic Amplifiers now in the game, Gaming-fans.com has you covered as we seek to continue to make the community smarter when it comes to how to get the most out of Start Wars Galaxy of Heroes.

Continuing our SWGoH Relic Review series, this article takes a look at HK-47 and his Relic, the Droid Assassin Rifle. As always, these reviews compare a character at Gear 13 with Relic level 0 to Relic level 7, and mods are not factored in.

Starting with his defensive gains, HK-47 receives a solid Health increase of 19,746, bringing his Max Health to 49,180. He also gains an 11.35% Armor increase and an 8.32% Resistance increase. Unfortunately, the stacks of the Ferocity debuff HK-47 receives from being under a Darth Revan lead (Where you’ll usually find HK) greatly reduces his defense, essentially negating the Armor and Resistance increases from his relic.

Speaking of Ferocity, this will also amplify the 2,705 Physical Damage increase HK-47 receives from an upgrade to a Level 7 Relic. With a final Physical Damage number of 6,488, HK will be hitting quite hard. This is complemented nicely by the increases of +90 to HK-47’s Armor Penetration and Resistance Penetration. While not affecting his AOE attack, the 18% Physical Critical Chance boost will help ensure HK lands more critical hits with his basic and second special. Finally, Hk sees a 13.5% jump in his Physical Accuracy which will negate the extra Dodge Chance that certain characters get from their relics.

Even though HK-47 is an excellent member on a Sith Empire team, the best team in the game currently, he can be replaced by Sith Marauder. While the META seems to be shifting towards Galactic Republic (specifically Clones and 501st), Sith Empire will be a top tier team for a long time. Because of these factors, I am putting HK-47’s relic on the lower end of the High Priority group. He is certainly a great candidate, but there are a number of better options in my opinion.
