SWGoH: Rise of the Empire – Phase 3 Dark Side Combat Mission (Bottom Right)

SWGoH - Rise of the Empire Territory Battle

Phase 3 is here in the newest Territory Battles in SWGoH. The Rise of the Empire Territory Battle was launched in December 2022 and 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 3 that will be updated over time. Specifically, this covers the Phase 3 Dark Side (bottom right) Combat Mission on Kashyyyk that does not have any specific character requirements other than all characters at Relic 7 or higher. Located in the bottom right of the Phase 3 Dark Side map, this combat mission rewards 341,250 Territory Points.

Phase 3 Dark Side Combat Mission Notes:

12.15.22 – I was have heard rumblings against using a SEE lead so we are going to try something different, so I go with Emperor Palpatine as my lead.

The battle is once again on Dathomir and once again features the stupid Dark Magick event modifier, one of the dumbest RNG-based things I have ever seen in SWGoH. The battle takes forever as I look to work around the stealth Nightsister Acolytes and weaken the entire field while trying to get SEE to his ultimate which takes forever. After literally 10 minutes of fighting I get SEE to his Restored version and get him to use his ultimate, which does not kill the one Acolyte who would not come out of stealth for the past 10+ minutes, but because SEE did the killing it is now just these two on-screen. Now I am just trying to wait out the enemies until SEE’s ultimate is available again so I can finish them off, and while I do not time it perfectly, I am able to make it through.

The second wave is just as stupid as the first and nearly as time consuming. With Old Daka’s ability to revive it makes it really tricky, and the Nightsister Acolyte on the right really complicates things as well as she hides behind stealth. The key for me was getting Shock on the Acolyte and keeping it on her, then, with SEE’s ultimate coming soon, linking the Acolyte and Daka. This does not work out as hoped, and I go at it for another 10 minutes. Finally, after 38 minutes of battle time, I get everyone’s health low enough and finish them all off within 3 turns for another 341,250 Territory Points.
