Darth Nihlus Buff

Prev13
Yes, this is a serious thing. Nihlus sounds amazing on paper! But sucks in reality. Only semi-good thing about his is his AOE, even then it's pretty meh. It's sad seeing such a powerful character be so UP. Please buff him but leave his zetas.

    How would you propose they buff him?

    He needs a better leader ability IMO. Nobody uses his leader ability. His basic is okay, maybe leave that depending on his other buffs. His OHK special is useless because the AI targets him before he can use it anyway.
  • Its not that hes underpowered. Hes far from it in fact, its just that hes easy to counter. Buffing everything because its counter-able is not a good idea.

    His basic is very good since it dispells and i really like his force drain its an ability block for 1 turn and it cant be dispelled.Yes his knockout does take time to use in arena and by the time he finally gets to use it you either won or theres 1 person left
  • Nihilus is INSANELY GOOD especially at 4 stars
    I Like Wicket. A Lot.

    The leader ability is also useless compared to zaul or zader as well

    Yeah, but what's the point of his basic if the enemy team just dodges most of the time anyways?

    Make his OHK AOE, sounds better ...
  • Nihilus is insane, he needs no buffs.

    Lol you're right about that.Then his force drain is the only thing that makes him pretty good because it buys time for you to think on how to deal with the opponents special attack

    This is ironic, mainly because there is a thread also on the front page about a DN lead + Dooku is overpowered.

    Nihilus is fine as is.
    In game name: Lucas Gregory - - - -"Whale blah grump poooop." - Ouchie

    In game guild: DeathStarVentDesigners - DVD for short.
    I beat the REAL T7 Yoda (not the nerfed one) and did so before mods were there to help

    That would make him somewhat useful, but kinda sounds a bit OP :lol:

    But it's not nearly as good as Zaul's leader

    is this a joke? DN's literally used on 74% of all top teams... so if anyone doesn't need a buff it's the currently most used single toon....

    if you're not getting his 1hitKO to work then i suggest protecting him better. My DN has occasionally used it twice in a single arena battle. so that move definitely can and has been used.

  • I never see nihilus in arena. Maybe if you gave him stun on his aoe he would be used more.

    I'd disagree with you about darth nihlus lead. It has top tier potential, just because not many use it doesn't mean it's not good

    You must have 100+ added speed to him or something

    Lol. What level are you and when did you start playing? He's in almost every team on my December 2015 shard....even the triple cleanse Rex/GK/Chaze ones.

    It's not ironic, it's just false. Nihilus is one of the best characters in game.
  • DN L is good for GW keeping all siths health maxed out. I don't use him very much, but I'm pretty sure there's a reason he's on almost every team in the top 10.

    Maybe at 220+ speed but no way otherwise
  • Nihulus is easily one of the best toons in the game,top tier. He's also the most used character in the game. Not sure why I'm even commenting in such a pointless thread.

    Well, those people obviously have either good mods or just pure lucky RNG with him.
