Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes Introduces Darth Bane with a Powerful New Kit

Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes, the popular mobile game, has unveiled a new character kit for Darth Bane, a legendary figure in the Star Wars universe known for originating the Sith “Rule of Two.” The kit reveal showcases Darth Bane’s unique abilities and synergies, particularly with Sith Eternal Emperor, making him a formidable addition to any roster.

Overview of Darth Bane’s Abilities

Darth Bane, categorized as a Dark Side Leader, Attacker, and Sith, brings a set of powerful abilities to the game:

  • Basic Ability – Soul Sever (Zeta): Deals physical damage, reducing the enemy’s offense and increasing Bane’s offense. Critical hits grant Siphon stacks, and enemies defeated by this attack can’t be revived.
  • Special 1 – Malevolent Whirlwind (Omicron): Dispels buffs on enemies, deals physical damage, inflicts Healing Immunity, and benefits from increased Health Steal. If paired with Sith Eternal Emperor, gains additional Ultimate Charge.
  • Special 2 – Essence of Dominance (Omicron): Deals damage based on Bane’s Max Health, increases enemy cooldowns, and Siphons Max Health from the target. Sith allies gain various buffs.
  • Unique 1 – Rule of Two (Zeta, Omicron): Enhances Bane’s critical chance, damage, and Health Steal. Gains benefits when Dazed and when an enemy starts their turn. Special synergies are activated when paired with one other non-Summon Sith ally.
  • Leader – Only The Strong Survive (Zeta): Boosts Sith allies’ offense and speed, with additional penalties for Light Side and Jedi enemies. Provides defensive buffs at battle start and benefits when a Sith ally is defeated.

Darth Bane’s Strategic Synergies

Darth Bane’s kit is designed to synergize strongly with Sith Eternal Emperor, emphasizing the “Rule of Two” philosophy. His abilities encourage using just two characters, making him a strategic choice for players looking to create a high-powered duo. His Leader ability, “Only The Strong Survive,” is particularly versatile for Sith-focused rosters, allowing for experimentation with different Sith combinations.

Maximizing Darth Bane’s Potential

To fully utilize Darth Bane’s capabilities, players should consider the following strategies:

  • Opening Moves: “Essence of Dominance” can be a potent opening move, even without Siphon stacks.
  • Against Buff-Heavy Teams: Use “Malevolent Whirlwind” when the enemy has more buffs to maximize damage.
  • Building a Squad: Experiment with different Sith as leaders and supporting members to find the best combination for your roster.


Darth Bane’s addition to Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes brings a new level of strategy and power to the game. His unique abilities and synergies offer players the opportunity to explore different tactics and team compositions. As a character steeped in Sith lore, Darth Bane is not only a powerful asset in battle but also a fascinating addition to the game’s expansive character roster.

When I was 7, I saw Star Wars: A New Hope in theaters a week after it opened. My parents were nice enough to take me and I have been a fan of Star Wars and almost all science fiction in general. I am an amateur writer who has been published for contributing flavor text to a RP game. I also have a copyright on a novel I hope to be able to publish sometime soon.
