STR: Phase 4 Teams & Strategy

Phase 4 is the most unique of the phases in the Sith Triumvirate Raid as you face off with the Sith Triumvirate to start. Darth Traya is invincible and cannot be targeted until after both Darth Nihilus and Darth Sion have been defeated, and the three synergize well together. The phase abilities are Unbreakable Will, Soothe All and Stand Together – each handling a different are of the battle.

I have tested teams out in Phase 4 of the Tier 5 and 6 levels of the Sith Triumvirate Raid extensively, and together with my Guildmates, community feedback and my fellow GameChangers here is what I have found:




 

Squads That Work Well in Phase 4:

Phase 4, unlike the other phases, was initially one where a “good” score was anything over 500-700k. In fact, taking the Stormtrooper Han nerf out of the records and few teams were scoring near or above 1 million damage in Phase 4 at the Tier 5 or Tier 6 levels in early and mid-March 2018, shortly after the STR’s launch. However, a video from Sir Georgeous Games showed how the original five Nightsisters – Asajj Ventress, Old Daka, Talia, Nightsister Acolyte and Nightsister Initiate – could put up over 3 million damage in the Heroic Sith Triumvirate Raid, so I had to test it out.

SWGoH - STR Phase 4 - Sir GeorgeousZeta Asajj Ventress, Old Daka, Talia, Nightsister Acolyte and Nightsister Initiate – As stated in the video by Sir Georgeous, Nightsister Initiate can be replaced by Mother Talzin or Nightsister Spirit, so I tested zAsajj Ventress, Old Daka, Talia, Nightsister Acolyte and Mother Talzin out in Phase 4 of our Tier 5 STR right away after seeing this video. While my attention to detail lacked and Talia was Gear 9, the results were highly encouraging if you follow the guidelines stated by Sir Georgeous in the video linked in the graphic to the right. The key is fighting ALL 3 of the Sith at once – my undergeared Nightsister test netted me 2.822 million on Tier 5 with the only Zeta on Asajj’s lead.

For those that do not have Nightsister Initiate, Nightsister Spirit or Mother Talzin starred and geared up, and offshoot of this places General Kenobi in the 5th spot. While I have not tested this team out myself I plan to do so on Monday in the Tier 5 Sith Triumvirate Raid and report back.

RJT, zBB-8, zR2-D2, Rey (Scavenger) and Resistance Trooper – This Rey (Jedi Training) team, once again, works pretty well in Phase 4 with all three Sith Lords fighting as well, but the mechanics of the phase really force the user to pay close attention to multiple areas of the battle at once. I have used RJT, zBB-8, zR2-D2, Rey (Scavenger) and Resistance Trooper on the Tier 5 STR with all three alive against me, but I am planning to test my 7-star Visas Marr out in place of RT or R2.

Ewoks - Phase 4 Sith Raid SWGoHEwoks – Mothman of Descendants of the Empire (DotE) shows off his Ewoks once again in the Tier 5 Sith Raid featuring Chief Chirpa leading Paploo, Logray, Ewok Elder and Wicket. With Wicket again as the main damage dealer, he cleared the final 10% of Darth Sion before lasting until enrage with Darth Traya.

First Order – KRU lead – The First Order seems to have some use in the Sith Triumvirate Raid, and a Kylo Ren Unmasked lead in Phases 3 and 4 of the Heroic STR is listed as options for 3-4% damage in both. However, the team list includes a KRU lead with FO Officer, FO Stormtrooper, FO Special Force Tie Pilot and FO Executioner, the final one being only available for the PTP crowd.

Heroic STR Notes for Phase 4:

The initial strategy by the early Heroic guilds was to use the Stormtrooper Han exploit/strategy in Phase 4 and quickly turned into a “throw the kitchen sink at them” and hope that a bunch of deep rosters can chip away and finish the raid off. However a few strategies have started to emerge including the one pictured on the right, courtesy of Your Face, and officer in the BHG Epidemic Guild. Details are in the graphic, but basically you have Thrawn Fracture Darth Nihilus and spam the three Sith Lords with Lando’s AoE attack.
