SWGoH: Quick Tips for Conquest 9 Success in October 2021

SWGOH - Conquest

While it is nearly a mirror image of Conquest 7 and Conquest 8, the new Conquest season 9 event has arrived. Once again, I wanted to take a moment to help the readers understand some of the Feats and/or simply better define them. While this is common sense to some when they read the Feat requirements, we have a player base that is full of busy people and, as I have said before, sometimes we fail to really read and review the details. Below are some quick tips to help you out in the October 2021 Conquest season (aka Conquest #9) in Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes. I promise to keep updating this as I progress through this Conquest event as well.

As a note to my previous article on Conquest 8, yes, this season is another near duplicate of the past two. This offers a couple of ways to look at it:

  1. You could look at this as a lazy move by EA Capital Games to barely change anything for 3 months at a time. Given this is a billion dollar game one could make the argument that we deserve better, as I stated in last month’s Conquest 8 article.
  2. You could look at this as a way to plan ahead and be better prepared for this Conquest season. Knowing that I need Darth Maul and Savage Opress for battles along with kills from the Phoenix and Mandalorian factions is actually helpful and allows players to know what to expect.

What I will say to this is that I am transitioning from #1 to #2 and backing off my criticism of the studio a bit. I am not one to delete negative comments, so I will leave my old writings live, but I do see some benefit in having a consistent finish line for at least every 3-month period with this game mode.


Conquest 9 Event Feats

Many of the Event Feats are self explanatory, like win without a tank in your squad or defeat 500 enemies. A few to take note of:

  • Nightbrother – This requires you to win 20 battles with both Darth Maul and Savage Opress (not OR) to start the battle. Winning with just one of them on your team will not work, but they do not need to live through the battle to count it for you.
  • That’ll Leave a Mark – Gaining Offense Up 500 times is no easy feat, so be sure to use characters who apply the Offense Up buff. There are 42 characters who apply Offense Up in the game, but popular choices would be Bastila Shan, BB-8, Bossk, Chewbacca, Dark Trooper, Emperor Palpatine, General Veers, Grand Master Yoda, Greef Karga, Hunter, Jedi Knight Anakin, Old Data, Rey (Jedi Training), Shaak Ti and more. Honestly, if you don’t even focus in on this Feat you will likely achieve the goal organically by just winning battles over the 2 week event timeline.

Conquest 8 – Notable Sector 1 Feats

  • Kalikori – Defeating 30 units with the Phoenix Squadron had me worried at first since I do not have many Relics on this faction, but you do not need a full team off Phoenix members to trigger the count for the feat. Thus, my Relic 2 Ezra Bridger was a fine addition to a Jedi lineup and I found that burst attacks, where allies are called to assist, seem to count as kills as well. I have found that a Rey lead with Ezra and Sabine doing all of the attacking while supported by Wat Tambor and The Armorer is quite effective.
  • Critical Success – Just using the First Order faction a few times will accomplish this feat with relative ease.

Conquest 8 – Notable Sector 2 Feats

  • Blinding Assault – Blind is another debuff that is limited to only a few characters in SWGoH. Look to use Jedi Knight Luke, Mission Vao, Sun Fac or Threepio & Chewie to inflict the Blind debuff on enemies. (NOTE: This Feat was not properly tracking when using JKLS in Conquest 7 and was addressed by the fans on the EA Capital Games forums. Supposedly these items are now tracking correctly.)
  • Striking Back – Getting 40 kills with Rebel Fighters is a pain in the butt, and I am one who has many of them with Relics already. I have seen success with a Rey lead and the more offensive Rebel Fighters while loading one tank with bonus protection to take the hits.

Conquest – Notable Sector 3 Feats

  • Clumsy – Evasion Down is another debuff that is limited in the number of characters who can apply it. They include Amilyn Holdo, Bastila Shan (Fallen), Bodhi Rook, Old Ben Kenobi, Sith Assassin, and Zam Wesell.
  • Relentless Fury – Frenzy is a buff that is exclusive to Bossk and Bistan, and this is basically a way to (try to) force players to use the consumables in this game mode. Find the Frenzy consumable and spend 75 crystals and you can knock this one out rather quickly.

Conquest – Notable Sector 4 Feats

  • Reeling Blow – Applying Stagger is the key to this Feat and 13 different characters can apply the Stagger debuff. Most notable in that group are BSF, Colonel Starck, Jango Fett, Resistance Hero Poe, Sabine Wren & Sun Fac.
  • Evasive Movement – The Evasion Up buff is only sourced from three characters – Han Solo, Hunter and Luminara Unduli.

Conquest – Notable Sector 5 Feats

  • Reeling Blow – Inflicting Daze is the key here and 27 characters can apply Daze including Admiral Piett, BB-8, Darth Maul, Darth Traya, Death Trooper, Enfys Nest, General Skywalker, Greef Karga, Jedi Master Luke Skywalker, Ki-Adi-Mundi, Lord Vader, Moff Gideon, Resistance Hero Poe, Rey (Jedi Training), Sun Fac and more. A combination of characters that has worked very well for me has been a Lord Vader lead with Piett, Darth Vader and at least one tank (Shoretrooper and RG work well) as both Piett and LV can apply 5 Daze debuffs apiece making this Feat much easier to accomplish quickly.
  • One by One – Inflicting Marked is not common, so be sure to bring Jedi Knight Revan or General Grievous into battle to accomplish this feat.
