SWGoH: Supreme Leader Kylo Ren Live Blog & Walkthrough

SWGoH - Supreme Leader Kylo Ren event

The Galactic Legend events in SWGoH have been building up for months, and finally on March 25, 2020 players were allowed to start working toward opening the new Galactic Legend versions of Rey and Supreme Leader Kylo Ren. Less than one week after the launch of this new content by Capital Games, new content that only applies to less than 1% of the player base after nearly a year of hardly anything different in the game, I began my journey to unlock Galactic Legend Rey on March 31, 2020, finishing her Ultimate ability just under a month later. Today, June 23, 2020, I begin a similar journey to unlock Supreme Leader Kylo Ren.

Below I will be live blogging my experience with the Galactic Legend event as my First Order characters, and while I have not avoided videos and opinions of others on this Galactic Legend event as I did with Rey, I am hopeful that I can add Galactic Legend Kylo to the roster as efficiently as possible.

Below is my walkthrough/live blog of the journey to unlock Supreme Leader Kylo Ren. I hope you enjoy and can learn from this. I also have added links to some of my favorite (former) GameChangers and their videos below.

  • Kylo Ren (Unmasked) – Relic 7 – 260 speed, 148k health/protection, 5,581 damage, 55.55% CC, 192% CD – all 6-dot mods, all abilities maxed

SWGoH - Galactic Legend currency06.23.20 @ 5:30 pm ET – I start with 96 Dark Side Currency and need 15 to launch the first battle. This Dark Side Currency can be gained by beating any Dark Side battle, 1 pieces at a time. Of course when you fight or sim a Dark Side board, it’s all up to RNG on how many pieces you get as shown in my graphic to the right.

Heir to the Dark Side – Tier I

Tier I can be fought 8 times with rewards of 10 shards of Supreme Leader Kylo Ren each time, thus 80 shards can be obtained from this first Tier.

Attempt #1 – Facing RJT, BB-8, C-3PO, RH Finn and RH Poe, I get to go first and call all allies to attack RH Finn. I make the mistake of not having FOST taunt which allows the enemies to attack my KRU and kill him very early in the battle. RH Poe one-shots a nearly full health and protection Kylo Ren and I am starting to rethink everything, mods and all. Honestly, I felt a to more prepared starting this Galactic Legend event than the Rey event, but now I have a 3 v 5 and dwindling chances of a victory. FOE does finally kill RH Finn, but FOE takes too many hits and is killed off. My battle is screwed and I am out 15 Dark Side Currency as a result.

 

Tier I First Order Characters Used (Revised):

  • Kylo Ren (Unmasked) – Relic 7 – 264 speed, 147k health/protection, 5,536 damage, 56.75% CC, 192% CD – all 6-dot mods, all abilities maxed
  • Kylo Ren – Relic 7 – 255 speed, 129k health/protection, 8,371 damage – 5 6-dot mods & 1 5-dot mod, all abilities maxed
  • General Hux – Relic 5 – 315 speed, 123k health/protection, 5,012 damage – all 6-dot mods, all abilities maxed
  • First Order Stormtrooper – Relic 5 – 228 speed, 143k health/protection, 62.55% tenacity, 74.4% armor – all 6-dot mods, all abilities maxed
  • First Order Executioner – Relic 5 – 252 speed, 108k health/protection, 6,533 damage, 77.95% CC, 222% CD – all 6-dot mods, all abilities maxed

 

Attempt #2 – I made some mod changes that were not drastic and I updated my attack strategy. This time I used KRU’s Stun to control BB-8 which worked MUCH better. This kept him from countering as much and from feeding RJT turn meter and was the difference in a win with all of my team standing and a loss.

SWGoH - Supreme Leader Kylo Ren eventI will note that this lineup is not fool-proof as a little bit of bad RNG can derail the battle and send it spiraling in the wrong direction. After that first battle I won 5 of the next 6 attempts and the key was RH Finn. Killing him as quickly as possible while stunning and controlling BB-8 was the difference. In battles where I could not control BB-8 things got much more interesting than when BB-8 stayed stunned. In addition, keeping KRU from staying stunned for too long when I was attacked kept him able to apply his own stun and control the enemy, so having Hux dispel debuffs on KRU was helpful.

 

Early Thoughts – Tier I: It’s a desert scene (on Pasaana) and nothing more. No cinematic experience like in the Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker event and no frills. Honestly, the event would not have been that bad had Capital Games not hyped the Galactic Legends up the way they did. Honestly, with the amount of money these GLs are making them they could have at least put more into the experience like they have with other events.


Heir to the Dark Side – Tier II

Tier II can be fought 4 times with rewards of 25 shards of SLKR each time, thus 100 shards can be obtained from this second Tier which will get the player to a max of 180 shards after completing the max attempts on Tiers I and II.

Tier II First Order Characters Used:

  • Kylo Ren (Unmasked) – Relic 7 – 264 speed, 147k health/protection, 5,536 damage, 56.75% CC, 192% CD – all 6-dot mods, all abilities maxed
  • Kylo Ren – Relic 7 – 255 speed, 129k health/protection, 8,371 damage – 5 6-dot mods & 1 5-dot mod, all abilities maxed
  • General Hux – Relic 5 – 315 speed, 123k health/protection, 5,012 damage – all 6-dot mods, all abilities maxed
  • First Order Stormtrooper – Relic 5 – 228 speed, 143k health/protection, 62.55% tenacity, 74.4% armor – all 6-dot mods, all abilities maxed
  • First Order Executioner – Relic 5 – 252 speed, 108k health/protection, 6,533 damage, 77.95% CC, 222% CD – all 6-dot mods, all abilities maxed

 

Attempt #1 – After watching a Skelturix video to familiarize myself with the team I am facing, I choose to start on removing one of the Resistance Heroes ASAP while again controlling BB-8. As Skelturix suggested, I save Hux’s dispel, but I spent two turns without Advantage so that made things a bit more difficult. I used KRU’s stun on BB-8 and Kylo Ren’s AoE to gain Turn Meter and Hux did his best to keep KRU clean of debuffs so that he could use his abilities effectively. Using this strategy the battle was not a real challenge as the 25 Supreme Leader Kylo Ren shards were an easy acquisition.

My second battle was not the same as the first and I lost First Order Stormtrooper early. The battle still came down to controlling BB-8, surviving the Resistance Heroes and cleansing KRU so that he could stun the Resistance scum facing me.

 

Early Thoughts – Tier II: The scene on Kijimi is well done, like in the Galactic Legend Rey event.


Heir to the Dark Side – Tier III

07.01.20 – I did a little research, and I mean a little, and quickly found a video saying that I could beat Tier III in 2 minutes. Too good to be true? Nope – it is real. The Feint, Strike, Parry, Strike strategy is indeed legit and worked for me perfectly as I scored the 50 shards the first time through. I now sit at 230 of 330 shards for Supreme Leader Kylo Ren and will update this once I earn the Dark Side Currency to finish this tier completely.

 

Early Thoughts – Tier III: I HATE the Rock, Paper, Scissors game mode. Given all that went into the Galactic Legend events, the money this is bringing in and the hype that Capital Games put behind it, this game mode/style feels insulting and lazy. Maybe it would not be so bad if Tiers IV through VI were one single scene, wasted materials and worthless rewards, but I hope we never see this style of gameplay in SWGoH again.


Heir to the Light Side – Tier IV
