Welcome to the best mods for Captain Drogan – the latest article in our series about the popular game Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes where we take a look at the best mod sets & stats for each SWGoH character. 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 and they are certainly not the only options for modding this character. However we look to help players maximize their rosters in SWGoH and we are always open to feedback if you have a mod setup that works well with your gameplay.
Today’s character to review mods for will be Captain Drogan. According to the EA Galaxy of Heroes Website, “Fennro Drogan is a new original character to Star Wars who fought with the Rebellion on Endor. Captain Drogan is a native of the planet Ghorman who has a limb difference and served as a member of the Ghorman Front prior to joining the Rebel Alliance. When the Rebellion called for stalwart soldiers, Drogan was quick to answer and lend his talents to the cause. An expert tactician, technician, and member of Bitter Pill Company, Captain Drogan serves the Rebel Alliance with pride and has helped bring Imperial forces to heel across multiple engagements.” Let’s take a look at what mods will best enhance Captain Drogan in Galaxy of Heroes.
Main Focus: With a strong base Speed of 182, Captain Drogan is in line with many of the more recent additions in the game like Scout Trooper, Tarfful and more. While a 180+ speed was always a “use Speed mod sets here” character in the past, that is not always the case in today’s SWGoH. The devs recommend Offense and Critical Chance mods, and I am still not in love with the CC focus, even with Galactic Legend Leia Organa in-game now. More on this to come, but I started with mid-range Speed mods on Drogan and now that I have had time to analyze things, I have adjusted slightly.
Additional Areas to Focus: Potency, Offense and survivability in the forms of Health and Protection. Potency is important to Captain Drogan as he has the ability to land the Stun, Offense Down and Burning debuffs, the latter of which synergies with R2-D2 on the Leia team. Note that he does gain +50% Potency from his unique and each ally with Keen Stratagem has +25% Offense and +25% Potency as well. A dealer of Special Damage, Captain Drogan’s 4,944 Special Damage stat is strong and his Fire Support special attack deals damage twice, basically making it double the power. In terms of survivability, as I have mentioned before, the Health/Protection debate from the circle mod (Data-Bus) is where we see the sloppiest modding in SWGoH. There are certain factions, characters and specific leaders who really change where your focus should be. For Captain Drogan, he deals with recovering Protection and Protection Up, the latter of which is based on Max Health. So while some characters are all-in on one stat or the other, Drogan is rather balanced at his release. However, now that Galactic Legend Leia has been added, having a Health primary on the circle (Data-Bus) mod is your best route because of all of GL Leia’s leader boosts that rely on Health. And, if you’re going to put an Omicron on Captain Drogan’s unique, Second in Command, I would focus more on Health from the circle mod as well. Also worth noting, Drogan’s base Tenacity is 107% which is good for 5th highest in the game, ahead of even Jabba the Hutt. Given his importance on the GL Leia team and ability to dispel buffs from enemies and debuffs from allies I can see boosting Tenacity even more to ensure he stays clean of the red icons above his head.
In-game Mod Recommendations: Offense & Critical Chance. As I said above, the CC focus in particular is not lining up for me. I see value in CC, but I se more value in a Health set than a CC set. I also am not sold on the Offense set either, but I give users the choice below based on your individual mod inventory.
Ideal Mod Setup for SWGoH Captain Drogan:
Captain Drogan is one of those few characters who are just not a “perfect fit” for a specific mod combination. While the devs have one way of looking at things, I am testing the new Leia team and combinations of characters daily and I am personally leaning toward a Speed and Health set over Offense and CC. While this comes down to your personal mod inventory, I feel confident that as I continue to slice the mods I am using on Drogan over time, this will line up best for this team’s overall success. Here is my safe, “straddle the fence” recommendation based on testing, the stats and kit, but know that I went Speed & Health sets:
- Transmitter (Square) – Speed/Offense mod with a primary focus on offense and a secondary focus on speed, health, critical chance and potency
- Receiver (Arrow) – Health/CC mod with a primary focus on speed and a secondary focus on health, critical chance, tenacity and potency
- Processor (Diamond) – Speed/Offense mod with a primary focus on defense and a secondary focus on speed, health, critical chance and potency
- Holo-Array (Triangle) – Speed/Offense mod with a primary focus on critical damage or offense and a secondary focus on speed, health, critical chance and offense
- Data-Bus (Circle) – Speed/Offense mod with a primary focus on health and a secondary focus on speed, offense, critical chance and potency
- Multiplexer (Plus) – Health/CC mod with a primary focus on offense or health and a secondary focus on speed, health, potency and critical chance or offense
