Poggle the lesser is a great support to have for the dark side. He does best alongside the trio Hk-47/IG-88/IG-86 and a healer(preferably Old Daka). With his speed up and droid synergy, your droid squad will create havoc and destroy anything in its path.
If you use him as an ally partner alongside the droids, you can bring a Genosian soldier for even more synergy. The offense up and speed up for the entire team is just too good to pass up.
Even if you don’t run a droid team, you can mix and match other damage dealers to make them do more damage. It is just that he gets much more advantage and effectiveness in the droid squad.
He does have low damage though, so do not expect him to 1 shot any targets. I suggest you farm him after getting Luminara Unduli from Galactic War.
[usrlist “Campaign Map:4.5” “Arena: 4.5” “Galactic War:4”]
Verdict: Gear him and put him in your droid squad for massive destruction.
