Darth Maul is your definition of a glass cannon. He hits freaking hard, especially against Jedis. But he is slow and can be easily defeated by burst damage team compositions.
However, he works wonders in a team that can speed him up. Poggle the Lesser and Qui-Gon Jinn are great characters to pair with Darth Maul so he can move ahead of the Droid squad and other strong damage dealers. He is also a good character to kill that pesky Jedi Consular in the arena.
If you have a hard time dealing with strong Jedis in campaign maps, he will do the job for you. Double damage against Jedis is nothing to scoff at.
He is very slow though and he is not farmable, so only use him if you have the right team composition for him. As good as he is, as long as there isn’t a reliable way to get shards for him, he will remain at a lower rating.
[usrlist “Campaign Map:3.5” “Arena: 4” “Galactic War:3.5”]
Verdict: Gear him well for hard maps/arena with Jedis.
