Defeating Vader (Death Star Encounter #2)
After you fought Vader in both the hallway and heating chamber, the fight will move onto the Emperor's quarters. Vader will retreat to a landing below you. Jump down to begin the Dark Side fight. Vader will be much stronger now, even though he was horribly injured just a few scenes ago. He is more frantic, and will use both Force Grip and Force Push often.
The easiest way to beat him if you're playing on a higher difficulty, such as Sith Lord or Sith Master, is to simply dash. Vader will catch Starkiller if he jumps via Force Grip, and he'll toss you through the air. Stay on the ground and use Force Dash to land your attacks. Most attacks don't work on him though, making this fight all the more harder. You can also use the combo Attack - Attack - Lightning - Force Push. This combo will only work if you have unlocked the Sith Saber Slash and Saber Smash powers. This will cause Vader to go airborne, where he is most vulnerable to your attacks. As he hits the ground, pund him with saber strikes and this ought to take 3/4 his health bar out, depending on the accuracy. Though, this move is rare to pull off against Vader's quick slashes.
Though Vader cannot be hurt by almost every attack Starkiller has access to, he will sometimes succumb to Force Grip. This gives Starkiller a chance to toss Vader around, but don't. Instead, drag him towards you and drop him. Then, pound him again. This ought to result in an easy win.
