Modding tanks

Hi I was wondering what is better to prioritize when modding a tanky character and choosing between these two, health and defense. If I am correct health is the amount of damage your character can take before dying while defense reduces damage taken. Which one should be prioritized more? Is one better than the other and if so why?

    Let's say KRU and Mace.

    In early game protection and health are more important than defense imo.
    Maybe End Game isn't for you
  • It can be specific to each character, but as a general rule you want protection primaries with defense sets.

    If you want to get into things more in depth, I'll do a little self promotion and send you here:

    On KRU, I'd do tons of health although other people may do it differently

    Please stop - it’s fine to have 1.5M GP, but you shouldn’t be offering advice on things you don’t know anything about.

    I know what works for me so I am giving advice and my profile is not updated

  • Not one of your BH has a complete set of mods right now in game.

    Not even your r5 Vader or g12 Palpatine does.

    I do daily remods my friend, I know how to mod
  • Ok. You’re just choosing to have incomplete or no mods at all on pretty much your entire roster?

    I’m not sure why you’re being dishonest about these things, or your good DS Geo roster that gets 4/4, or your 2 minute discord account that’s been bombarding the recruitment servers on discord for several days. I just hope people who read your “advice” give it some scrutiny before they act on it.

    That would require knowing what males a mod good.

    I just want to know who’s getting the speed cross with no speed. Once it’s leveled up, of course.
    Maybe End Game isn't for you

    to go back to the original question about tanks: the answer is, it rly depends how the kit of said tank looks, what team he is used in etc (lets take GK as a example: in padme, he needs health on everything, whereas, if you use him with JKR, protection and speed are more important)
    For the ones you specified: mace is just bad, doesnt matter how you mod him, he wont do you any good. but he isnt a "tank" as he has no taunt mechanics, so modding him for tankyness is actually not helping, so he would kinda need offensive mods.
    KRU is a interesting character, becouse there is actually quite a few ways to mod him: firstly, his kit scales with health, not protection, so if you have the choice, you should use health primarys over protection primarys. But then, he also crits alot, and some of his heals, is also based on the dmg he does, so using a critdmg cross, doesnt sound too bad either. then, his healing means, he cant have healing immunity on him, so getting tenacity suddenly also looks very appealing.
    and now think about the fact, that all thoose stats i listed, do compete with each other in terms of mod sets, primary stats on crosses and triangles. and you get to the point, where you just have to decide, whats more important for the way YOU use the character.

    Also if you are looking for general advice how to mod a specific character, i can recommend looking here: https://swgoh.gg/stats/mod-meta-report/


    p.s.: dont listen to anakins master, he will lead you down a road you rly shouldnt follow
