Welcome to the best mods for Iden Versio, the latest article in our series about the popular game Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes where we take a look at the best mods for SWGoH characters. While I do not claim to have all of the answers in this game, I do my research and have used every character I write about extensively. These are mod recommendations based on the character’s kit and actual gameplay to help you in your quest to dominate the Galaxy of Heroes holotables.
Today’s character to review mods for will be Iden Versio. An Imperial leader, she was introduced and made popular in the Battlefront II video game and the canon novel Battlefront II: Inferno Squad. In SWGoH, Versio is expected to lead a second team of Imperial Troopers, especially with a Grand Arena-focused Omicron upgrade, so dust off and gear up your Magmatrooper and Snowtrooper and get ready as we take a look at the best mods to maximize Versio’s kit.
Main Focus: Speed is almost always the main focus of mods on SWGoH characters, but Iden Versio has this cool bit of text in her unique that reads “If no other allies have the Leader tag, and all allies are non-Droid Imperial Troopers, Iden gains 100% Turn Meter at the start of each encounter.” Thus, there is no need for a huge Speed stat to get an early or the first turn of the battle if you use her as intended. While her base Physical Damage stat is below average, looking at her abilities is key. Versio’s basic can hit up to three times making it triple-effective, and her leader ability and the We Adapt, Or Die buff add +35% and +30% Offense, respectively. As a result I suggest a set of four Offense mods for Iden Versio to take advantage of ow her kit works.
Additional Areas to Focus: Potency, Critical Damage, Speed and survivability in the form Health. Potency is important to allow Versio’s basic and first special to land debuffs. Critical Damage will help all of her crits hit harder, but I am not suggesting going out of your way to add Critical Chance given the +30% CC in her leader ability and the +30% CC in the We Adapt, Or Die buff. Speed is never a bad stat to target, but given the 100% TM gain at the start of each encounter, you can use those +7 to +9 Speed secondary stat mods that you keep saying you’re going to slice on Iden until you finally get the slicing materials to follow through on that. Finally, survivability in the form of Health will help Iden Versio live longer to annoy your enemies. As we explained in this 2019 article, Protection Up in SWGoH is based on Max Health, so the Protection Up she gains from We Can Grieve Later will be more substantial with a high Max Health stat. In addition, with her Omicron upgrade, she and all of her Imperial Trooper allies will gain +35% Max Health from her leadership.
In-game Mod Recommendations: I expect this to be Offense & Health and will update the article once it is official.
Ideal Mod Setup for SWGoH Iden Versio:
The “ideal mod setup” can be interpreted a few different ways. If you target Offense, Potency, Critical Damage, Speed and Health through the mods you should be able to maximize her abilities utilizing an Offense set and a Health set. Here are my recommendations for the best mods for Iden Versio:
- Transmitter (Square) – Offense mod with offense primary and a secondary focus on health, potency, offense and speed
- Receiver (Arrow) – Health mod with speed or offense primary and a secondary focus on health, potency and offense or speed
- Processor (Diamond) – Offense mod with defense primary and a secondary focus on health, potency, offense and speed
- Holo-Array (Triangle) – Health mod with critical damage primary and a secondary focus on health, potency, offense and speed
- Data-Bus (Circle) – Offense mod with health primary and a secondary focus on health, potency, offense and speed
- Multiplexer (Plus) – Offense mod with health, potency or offense primary and a secondary focus on health, potency, offense and speed
