The Nightsister Initiate is surprisingly tanky and deals good damage, especially when paired with Darth Sidious/IG-88 as leader. The more critical rate she gets, the more damage she does.

She is a nightsister, so you can put a nightsister leader for bonuses. The fact that she is tanky and can deal damage makes her a very viable character for you if you choose to level her.

Her single target damage hits very hard when it is a critical hit. I think most people won’t want to level her because she isn’t a “hero” character. Her buff immunity and damage over time is great against strong/tanky characters.

The only downside is that she has no AoE damage. Other than that, she is a solid choice to build as a damage dealer on the dark side.


[usrlist “Campaign Map:4.5” “Arena: 4” “Galactic War:4”]

Verdict: Max her if you want a nightsister team or a dark side damage dealer.
