SWGoH Relic Review: R2-D2

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 take a look at the lovable droid R2-D2 and his Relic, an Electroshock Probe. As always these reviews compare a character at Relic level 0 to Relic level 7 and mods are not factored in.

Starting off, R2-D2 gains a slightly below average Health increase of 16,830. However his impressive 14.58% Armor and 8.74% Resistance increases make up for this nicely. In addition he gains a 13.5% boost to both Physical Critical Avoidance and Special Critical Avoidance.

Looking at the offensive side, Artoo gains a 2,171 Physical Damage increase and a 3,336 Special Damage increase, both very good numbers. As one of the rare few characters who deal both Physical and Special Damage in Galaxy of Heroes, both stat gains are quite useful. In addition he gains a 16.58% Physical Critical Chance boost. Finally, R2-D2 gains an extra 13.5% Physical Accuracy and Special Accuracy.

The stat increases from R2-D2’s Relic are fairly good and he is able to take advantage of all stat increases involved, unlike many other characters in SWGoH. Another factor to consider is how useful Artoo is in differing game modes. He is a great addition to most Light Side teams and he has excellent synergy with Rebels, Resistance and Galactic Republic. This gives him high odds of having long-term value when you also consider how useful his kit is to start with. Overall I believe R2-D2 and his Relic deserve to be in the lower to medium area of the High Priority tier.
