I have a 3 star nihilus and i wanna know if he is good even at 3 stars.Just curious because i might level him up if he is viable at 3 stars.

    depends on who your asking.

    i've got him max leveled, modded and omega'd. i'm at gear 8.

    he's not up to my leader quality but i've been using him in GW. i'd like to see another star or 2 before id consider him arena quality. he's pretty squishy at 3*.

    K I might just level him up for galactic war since I'm never able o beat the last node

    His leader is the only way to keep your characters maxed through all the GW nodes, so there's that. Also will probably help a lot with dark missions, as he will definitely have annihilation ready by the third encounter. Mine is not arena-worthy yet, so I have no personal experience on that front.
    Revive the stores, the game needs it.

    I run a g10 Nihilus with a Zaul lead on a Nov. 15 shard. Finished 4th yesterday and got knocked to 11th (not bad). Back in 4th with 3 battles left until payout in 90 minutes.

    TL;DR - Yes. Especially if you run a Zaul lead + B2 and speed mods on Nihilus. EP stuns, B2 buff blocks, Nihilus sucks CD and drops anihilate CD to 3 on turn 1. Then things get really fun.

    I beat the REAL T7 Yoda (not the nerfed one) and did so before mods were there to help

  • I got number 4 at today's payout and got to number 1 soon after. I use Nihilus at gear 10 3* in a zader team
  • Just note if you're using DN in GW his annihilate restarts each encounter at 8 cool down.

    there's other ways to keep your toons maxed through GW. i don't bust him out until the last few nodes.

    i run though the first 10 nodes with one team and remain maxed health by node 11.

    Yes, if you don't set expectations high.

    Yes, if you have a bunch of zeta heroes already.

    Yes if you are new, but maybe disappointed if you are full on F2P.

    Yes if you love Nihilus.

    No, if you have been playing for a while, still have a weak roster, and expect him to be a game changer.

    Good luck.

    I say work on him. Start working on your sith.

    He'll be farmable in a few months and you'll have him ready.
