Galactic War Tips and Strategy

galactic war

Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes has a survival or endurance mode called Galactic War. The holotable for Galactic War unlocks at level 40. Players will start on the left side of the screen with the first 3 chests shown. The opponent for each match is decided by your power level and the difficulty tier of each battle. The silver chests are the easiest, the purple are the hardest, and after every purple chests the enemy’s overall power level increases. Most of your opponents tend to have chewbacca or Dooku, especially in the early levels. Don’t be surprised to see several 4* characters as you progress through the stages. Take your time and work through each battle carefully and this should be some easy rewards.

Galactic War is a really cool endurance/survival mode that ensures that your extra characters are still pretty useful. While tough, the key to completing Galactic War is using your healers wisely and sparingly. A team of 3 healers can take out most of the map but if their cooldowns aren’t reset for the final 3 battles don’t be surprised to wipe out. There is no guarantee that the enemies will be near your level, only that they will be near your power. This also doesn’t take into account the enemy team’s synergy. It is possible to come across some truly tough foes. If any of your characters die, they will be unusable until the next Galactic War. Any damage suffered or cooldowns used will remain after every fight. However, this also works in your favor.  Enemy teams will follow the same rules. Try using a shock team to soften up a tough foe when you need to heal before going in blasters blazing!

War Shipments

Galactic War Shipments

As you battle through the Galactic War levels you will begin to earn War Tokens which can be redeemed for another set of unique shipments. You may be wondering which shipments to purchase from the Galactic War shipments section on the bottom right. Unfortunately, there aren’t too many great characters in here. Luminara would be the best to go for at first as she will be a powerful asset in PvE and possibly PvP depending on your current team composition. Most of the other shipments are fillers for type specific teams and should be taken at your best judgement. Remember that the rewards here also reset every 6 hours which means you can possibly get 15 of whichever shard every day.
