SWGOH best evade guide and heroes

In a galaxy far, far away, the art of dodging and evading attacks may have been long-forgotten, but in SWGOH it’s really important. And this is what we’re going to talk about in today’s guide.

This once-obsolete game mechanic has made a triumphant return, courtesy of feats in Galactic Conquest and Galactic Challenges, as well as annoying Genosian teams to mention a few relatively new features.

So, if you want to know how to “Evade at least x attacks” in the game, you’re at the right place. We’ll learn everything about evading today, as well as the best characters for the job.

How Evading Attacks works in Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes

In SWGOH, characters evade attacks when the attacker’s assault misses its mark entirely.

Evading attacks can be enhanced through a variety of means, including Leader abilities, buffs, or the use of Data Disks and Consumables in Galactic Conquest.

There are also debuffs that can tip the odds in favor of forcing an evaded attack. Here’s a breakdown of the methods and elements that come into play when it comes to evading attacks:

Evading Buffs:

  • Evasion Up
  • Foresight (Have in mind that Stealth does not contribute to Evasion)


  • Accuracy Down
  • Blind

Data Disks:

  • Convor’s Agility
  • Future Vision
  • Quickening

Consumables (Galactic Conquest):

  • Evasion Booster


  • Ahsoka Tano
  • Darth Maul
  • Luminara Unduli
  • Obi-Wan Kenobi (Old Ben)
  • Qui-Gon Jinn
  • Rebel Officer Leia Organa
  • Talia

Among these options, Foresight stands out as a particularly efficient means of accumulating evaded attacks. It provides a reliable method to avoid incoming assaults.

Best Characters to Master Evasion in Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes

SWGOH evading

Now that we’ve explored the mechanics of evasion in SWGOH, let’s check out the top characters for the job.

These heroes bring unique abilities and synergies to the table, making them valuable assets when you need to accumulate those evaded attacks.

Jedi Master Kenobi: JMK’s Special ability, “Hello There,” is no joke. It grants Foresight to all Light Side allies, making it a perfect contribution to your evaded attacks count.

Grand Master Yoda: When GMY’s abilities are maxed out, his “Battle Meditation” can bestow the Foresight buff upon all allies. Pair him up with Hermit Yoda for a combo that can generate a plethora of evaded attacks throughout the battle.

Obi-Wan Kenobi (Old Ben): Old Ben’s leadership ability offers all allies a 15% Evasion boost. While this may seem modest, its effectiveness amplifies when combined with Grand Master Yoda and Hermit Yoda.

Darth Maul: Similar to Old Ben, Darth Maul provides all Sith allies with a 20% Evasion boost. This 1/5 chance becomes reasonable when you surround him with characters capable of withstanding a relentless barrage of attacks.

Rey (Jedi Training) & BB-8: This dynamic duo offers seamless synergy. Rey’s unique ability “Insight” and BB-8’s “Self-Preservation Protocol” frequently grant Foresight buffs, making them a reliable choice for accumulating evaded attacks.

Honorable Mentions:

While the ones above are the best of the best, we also have a few characters that can prove really useful in evading attacks and are perfect for such lineups:

Amilyn Holdo, Bastila Shan (Fallen), Commander Ahsoka Tano, Han Solo, Echo, Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker, Jedi Knight Revan, R2-D2, and Tech.

Final words

While evading wasn’t really a thing until the new challenges were introduced to the game, you know now what options you have for your teams in order to easily complete them.

These characters bring a diverse range of abilities and strategies to the table, allowing you to craft teams that specialize in evasion – and they’re pretty good at it, I might add.
