SWGoH: Rise of the Empire

Rise of the Empire is a new Territory Battle theme in SWGoH, but you need specific units and modifiers to be successful in it.

Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes (SWGoH) is a mobile collectible role-playing game that is set in a cantina in a distant corner of the Star Wars galaxy.

EA mobile, the game’s developer, recently introduced a new gaming mode called Territory Battles, which follows the Rise of the Empire theme.

Territory Battles

Territory Battles is a new strategic game mode which requires that an entire guild collaborates to complete specific objectives.

You can only join a Territory Battle if you are level 65. To participate in the gaming mode, you have to open the Guild Events menu in your Guild screen.

Every battle rages over 6 days and has 6 24-hour phases. In this time, you have to work with your Guild to earn enough Territory Points to win at least 1 star in the active Territory. This will enable you to move to the following Territory in the next phase.

SWGoH: Rise of the Empire

The new Territory Battle (New TB) in SWGoH, Rise of the Empire, recently launched, and you have to prepare accordingly to be successful in it.

Every phase requires characters of a specific Relic level. Not all units composed of that Relic level are guaranteed to be successful in the phase.

Similarly to the previous Territory Battles, you need the right units, the correct strategy, and the minimum Relic Levels to complete the Combat Missions.

The table below lists the minimum and recommended Relic requirement for each phase:

Phase Minimum requirement Recommended
1 Relic 5 Relic 6
2 Relic 6 Relic 7
3 Relic 7 Relic 8
4 Relic 8 Relic 9
5 Relic 9 Relic 9
6 Relic 9 Relic 9

However, for Rise of the Empire, Encounters are static, and you will face the same enemies in every Encounter to enter that battle.

Every mission in any phase requires specific units, factions, and Modifiers. It is therefore recommended that you know which units and modifiers you need  before entering the battle.
