Welcome to the best mods for IG-12 & Grogu, the latest article in our series about the popular game Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes where we take a look at the top 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 the newest addition in SWGoH, IG-12 & Grogu. Added in November 2023 as part of the content expansion around The Mandalorian, Season 3, IG-12 & Grogu is the first iteration of Grogu (aka Baby Yoda) in SWGoH. In-game, IG-12 & Grogu is a Light Side Mandalorian character who is also a Healer and can gain the Scoundrel tag when used with The Mandalorian (Beskar Armor). Let’s take a look at which mods will best enhance his kit for SWGoH success.
Main Focus: Health. This was a tough call debating Health and Speed. IG-12 & Grogu’s Yes. special is where the healing comes from as it dispels all debuffs from the weakest ally and target ally and then they both recover Health equal to 30% of IG-12 & Grogu’s Max Health. In addition, at the start of each of IG-12 & Grogu’s turns, all Mandalorian allies gain Health equal to 10% of his Max Health and can gain Protection Up as well. On top of that, IG-12 & Grogu gains 20% Max Health for each Light Side Mandalorian ally and under Beskar Mando’s lead, all Scoundrel allies (IG-12 & Grogu would qualify thanks to the Yes. Yes. Yes. unique) gain 5% Max Health, 5% Max Protection and 5% Offense and gain 2% Turn Meter when another Scoundrel ally takes damage. While I started with Speed as my main focus recommendation, there is no denying the importance of Health to IG-12 & Grogu’s kit and how this enhances all of his allies.
Additional Areas to Focus: Speed, Potency, Tenacity & Defense. While Speed is the driving force in Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes, Health is just far more important for IG-12 & Grogu. With a strong base Speed of 171, there is plenty to build off of, but I am sure many of us wish that was a 191 starting point instead. As a result, I am going with a strong set of Health mods with very strong health and speed secondary stats to maximize the effectiveness of IG-12 & Grogu pending the release of the new Bo-Katan (Mand’alor) character. Potency will be needed to ensure that IG-12 & Grogu’s basic can effectively land Healing Immunity and Ability Block from his basic, and Blind, Daze and Stun from his No. No. No. special. Any added Defense and Tenacity will help IG-12 & Grogu live longer and use his abilities as intended, and Tenacity specifically will help ensure that IG-12 & Grogu can use the 100% Counter Chance built into his kit which does not look like a big deal, but I have a feeling will be very valuable.
In-game Mod Recommendations: TBA, but I expect this to be Health, Health and Health.
Ideal Mod Setup for SWGoH IG-12 & Grogu:
The “ideal mod setup” can be interpreted a few different ways as our analysis of each character is based on their kit and can be a bit subjective as well. If you target survivability stats through the mods with a heavy emphasis on Health mods and strong Speed secondaries, you should be able to maximize IG-12 & Grogu’s kit nicely. Here are my recommendations for the best mods for IG-12 & Grogu:
- Transmitter (Square) – Health mod with offense primary and a secondary focus on health, speed, potency and defense or tenacity
- Receiver (Arrow) – Health mod with speed primary and a secondary focus on health, health %, potency and defense or tenacity
- Processor (Diamond) – Health mod with defense primary and a secondary focus on speed, health, potency and defense or tenacity
- Holo-Array (Triangle) – Health mod with health primary and a secondary focus on health, speed, potency and defense or tenacity
- Data-Bus (Circle) – Health mod with health primary and a secondary focus on health, speed, potency and defense or tenacity
- Multiplexer (Plus) – Health mod with health primary and a secondary focus on speed, health, potency and defense or tenacity
