SWGoH: Rise of the Empire – Phase 3 Dark Side Combat Mission with Empire

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 3 that will be updated over time. Specifically, this covers the Dark Side (Bottom) Combat Mission on Dathomir that requires five Empire characters at Relic 7 or higher.

Phase 3 Dark Side Combat Mission with Empire Notes:

12.15.22 – Knowing I do not have my Imperial Troopers up to the Relic levels required and because I do not like them in Territory Battles anyway, I bring along Piett for this Empire battle.

Facing five Nightsisters I can tell that this is going to be very, very hard as after a couple of turns my Stormtrooper and RG are in yellow health. This battle has the stupid Dark Magick modifier that revives characters after 10 stacks wear off, one of the dumbest Galactic Challenge modifiers used in SWGoH. I last long enough with kills and revives to send LV into his ultimate and time thing just right to have all five of my characters advance to the second wave.

The second wave of enemies include Old Daka and Mother Talzin and again, getting Lord Vader to his ultimate and using the Unshackled Emotions (Force Crush) special is the key. In the end I try to weaken all enemies, drop the DoTs and hope for good RNG to get the finish as I earn 341,250 Territory Points for my guild.
