SWGoH Relic Review: Rey (Galactic Legend)

SWGoH: Galactic Legend Rey

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 a major part of the game’s progression, 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 the Relic Review series, we take a look at Rey’s Relic and the impact it has on the game. As always these reviews compare a character at Gear 13, Relic Level 0 with Relic Level 7, and mods are not factored in.

One of the first two Galactic Legend characters introduced in SWGoH, Rey is an Attacker and Leader of the Resistance faction with stats that are off the charts. In the best mods for Rey guide I pointed out that she and Supreme Leader Kylo Ren are the two fastest characters in SWGoH – more than double the next fastest at base speeds (before mods). All of this is in play with Rey’s Relic upgrades and the stats that are impacted, which we will review in greater detail below. Those stat upgrades include Health, Physical & Special Damage, Armor, Resistance, Physical Critical Chance and finally Special Critical Chance, Critical Damage and Damage from her Mastery. Note that her Mastery classifiers her as an Agility Attacker.

Defensively, Rey gains 17,892 Health, which brings her to just over 122k Health in total – a crazy high number before mods. Her defensive Armor stat gets an increase of just 10.52%, along with a 7.52% gain in Resistance, both of which are average in comparison to other character Relic upgrades.

On the offensive side, Rey gains a solid 2,884 Physical Damage from upgrading her to Relic level 7. She sees a 33.92% increase in Physical Critical Chance to bring her to nearly 80% CC when maxed out, and she gains a 13.5% Critical Damage boost as well. While she does see a Special Damage gain of 3,414 and a gain of 13.5% Special Critical Chance, these stats are just wasted gains that devalue Rey’s Relic upgrades, something the developers should not have allowed to impact such a high-dollar character.

As we look at Galactic Legend Rey and her impact in today’s SWGoH, she is arguably the best character in the game. While Supreme Leader Kylo Ren, Darth Malak and General Skywalker would also be in that conversation, as well as future Galactic Legend characters after this is published, there is no doubt that she is incredibly important to SWGoH and endgame players. As a result of this and her crazy Health and Speed stats and how they impact her gameplay, any rating below the top of the High Priority category would be bad advice.
