SWGoH: Rise of the Empire – Phase 1 Dark Side Combat Mission (Right)

SWGoH - Rise of the Empire Territory Battle

The newest Territory Battles are here as the Rise of the Empire Territory Battle was launched in December 2022. Unlike previous Territory Battles in SWGoH, the Rise of the Empire TB features Light Side, Dark Side and Neutral paths and Platoons are now called Operations.

The Rise of the Empire Territory Battle features six Phases which last 24 hours each. Each of the six Phases of the event has a Special Mission rewarding Mk III Guild Event Tokens in Phases 1, 4, 5 and 6 and Reva (Third Sister) shards in Phase 3.

The following is a Walkthrough of my experiences in Phase 1 that will be updated over time. Specifically, this covers the Dark Side Combat Mission on the right side that requires five Dark Side of Neutral characters at Relic 5 or higher.

Phase 1 Dark Side Combat Mission Battle Notes:

12.12.22 – For this battle I used my Imperial Troopers with a General Veers lead and it proved to be my only non-perfect mission of Phase 1. I start off by losing Veers immediately, before I can take a turn, and this sets the tone for the whole battle. The Droideka takes out Veers and then Moff Gideon on its next turn as I struggle to get to him and eventually have a 3 v 1 after I take out the rest of the enemies. The Droideka’s Damage Immunity screws me up as he kills Dark Trooper, but Range and Piett get the job done and finish him off to make it to the second wave. At this point I have no chance and they kill me off with ease and I lose my perfect Phase 1 run scoring just 100k Territory Points in this one.
