SWGoH Relic Review: Darth Nihilus

SWGoH - Darth Nihilus

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 Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes.

Continuing the Relic Review series, this article will focus on Darth Nihilus and his relic, his lightsaber. As always, these reviews compare a character at Relic level 0 to Relic level 7 and mods are not factored in.

First off, Darth Nihilus gains an above average Health increase of 19,440, bringing his total to 50,785. This is complemented well by his 11.59% Armor increase and 6.57% Resistance increase.

While Darth Nihilus is not valued for his damage output (not counting Annihilate), his offensive gains are still worth mentioning. His Special Damage increases by 2,592, giving him a total of 7,271 which enhances his basic attack and its ability to dispels buffs as well as his special ability which can increase cooldowns. The 13.5% Special Accuracy boost Nihilus receives helps ensure these abilities aren’t evaded. In addition Darth Nihilus gains an increase of 90 to both Armor Penetrarion and Resistance Penetration. Finally, he sees a 6.75% Health Steal increase. Because Nihilus only deals Special Damage, the increases to his Physical Damage, Physical Critical Chance, and Physical Accuracy will be ignored.

Darth Nihilus is a key member of the Sith Triumvirate, a Darth Traya led team that has high value and versatility across the game. However, Nihilus’s Relic doesn’t have a significant effect on the Sith Lord. Because of these factors, I place his relic in the Medium Priority tier.
