Does Darth Nihilus work under Vader (zeta) leadership?

I was wondering if anyone had attempted yet. I'll definitelly gearing Nihilus up to G10/11 as soo as I can. I did a test drive at G8 and, as expected, it didn't worked lol.

Also, does his unique zeta is a must-have? I wonder how beneficial it would be. Toughts?

  • So his unique pairs quite nicely with zader, as it's just that many more dots flying around. In terms of overall, I'm not sure yet, as I haven't tried him yet, but I can imagine all the dots everywhere do great to reduce his annihilate cooldown. Is his unique zeta a must-have? No. It does nicely if you're using him in combination with an Assassin-Savage combo, where he can help do a 1 shot on someone, but it's not something to write home about.

    I'd think so. You can build the team for the long haul and add toons like GK, Chaze, or Zariss that drag the game out and allows you to make use of annhilate and culling blade.

    Close to my initial toughts too! Great that the zeta is not a must-have, I'm with one ready but not sure to whom I'd slot in.

    I'm running Vader(Z) leader, Palpatine, TFP, GK and Boba Fett. I'm willing to teplace Boba with DN since he has an effective ability block, dispell and insta-kill such as Boba on my lineup, but as Sith, he will also get the bonuses from Vader.

    Interesting combo with Barris zeta! Barris will make the team strong for sure. Don't have Chaze, so I may try soon Vader(Z, L), TFP, GK, DN and Barris(Z). Seems to be quite good!

  • Although nihlus lead says that no healing affects work, I've been very curious about zarriss and nihlus lead. I saw palps heal work, so idk how truthful the lead is

    Barriss' zeta healing ability does not work for Sith under a Nihilus lead, as they can only regain health from a health steal. A player in my guild confirmed this when asked.

    Not tested but, since Palpatine can cause damage, that damage gives him 150% health. Isn't it that is happening? I'll test it uot soon, as I reached G10/G11 siths enough to play in arena.

    That's exactly what happens. The heal itself doesn't work but since he can cause damage to rebels/jedi/shocked opponents and cause damage to everyone in the battle, he still heals. But that's from the damage being caused, not the heal itself. Barriss is a regular heal, it wouldn't work

    Here's a few videos with zihilus under zader lead





  • I was thinking about trying Zader, DN, DT, DK and TFP/Sid. Two cool down increases plus stagger for extra TM reduction. Annihilate, culling blade and death mark provide huge burst damage. I'd have to gear up Krennic and get a zeta for DT to even try it so it's just theory right now. Anyone running anything like this?

    I don't think that the Deathmark would result in any higher damage than any other debuff. I believe the mechanic is that Culling Blade clears the buffs, then applies damage. But yeah, any debuff is a good debuff.
  • I meant the ability to use deathmark, the ability to use culling blade, and the ability to use annihilate each independent of each other will allow the squad to have to have high burst damage.

    Nice videos! Out of curiosity, do you have any comp like this in your shard to try out?

    Rex, Kenobi, Barris (zeta), Chirrut, Baze

    Maul(zeta), Palpatine, Darth Nihilus, Chirrut, Baze

    These are comps that are resonably tought to defeat, and I wonder if Nihilus makes them somewhat easier.

    Thanks!

    That was my initial tought, but with Boba instead of DT and Kenobi instead of Krenic. Three hit-kill with high damage to take advantage of and that will benefit from the Vader permanent DoT.

    Interesting vid but I don't think it's feasible for most Zader teams to be able to go before at least EP on a Zaul team. I'm interested in seeing a Zader Zihilous team go second and still clean up shop.
