Tips for new players:
  • Unless you're into spending money, don't ever buy data packs (except the first Chromium--it guarantees you a character; you buy it with crystals).
  • Once in a great while you'll get a character from a daily pack, or shards, but 45% of the characters you get will be from the various stores in the game. You can only see 1-2 when you start (Cantina and Squad Arena), but eventually you'll see another 3 or so, and they'll keep you busy grabbing character shards. The other 45% of the characters you get will be from doing hard battles...one shard at a time.
  • At the start, you really just need to keep plugging away at what you know to do. The game is great at opening up new areas when you're about ready for them. Don't even be that concerned about which characters are the "right ones." For instance, you'll probably continue to use Clone Wars Chewbacca for a while...but you'll likely abandon him by level 60 or so in favor of other characters.
  • I do highly recommend doing nothing in the Cantina except getting GS shards (Battle 1-A). Just do it over and over again until he's 7*. I camped there until he was done and then started doing more cantina battles. You'll use him way into the end game. Do one Cantina refresh every day (100 crystals).
  • In the Squad Arena (PvP), ST Han and Leia are both great choices. Again, I'd just keep farming them until they were maxed, then move on.
  • Other than that, keep doing the Light and Dark side battles. (Refresh twice each day (50 crystals each)). Right now you can just try to get through the levels, but eventually you'll want each one three stars because you'll go back to them countless times to get specific character shards so you can get a character, or to get equipment parts to make them stronger. By the way, equipment (those green pluses) make a HUGE difference--more than anything!
  • Be sure to get through your Dailies every day. That maxes your growth.
  • It's a bit frustrating early on because you want to get a bunch of characters, but if you really focus on building a strong team, they'll open the game for you.
  • Don't hesitate to use ALL your energy every single day. And if you fight a battle a second time, use a SIM if you have it. I was so concerned early on with burning through my credits and SIMs that I hoarded them. No need to do that. They all refill the following day, and by using them you grow faster.
  • These are generally considered some of the best characters in each store, in order of general preference. If you're not sure who to get, get them in this order. But don't let the idea of getting the "best" characters rule your gameplay. It's fun to play with whoever you want and sometimes unique combinations do surprisingly well:

    Guild Shipments: Rey, Ewok Elder
    Arena Shipments: ST Han, Princess Leia, Admiral Ackbar
    Galactic War Shipments: Luminara, Captain Phasma, Teebo, Poggle the Lesser, IG-86 (Note: Luminara is best up to about level 75, then Phasma seems to shine more. Ultimately, you'll want both.)
    Cantina Shipments: Qui-Gon Jinn, Daka, Fives, Ahsoka
    Cantina Battles: Geonosian Soldier, Barriss, Count Dooku, Old Ben, Royal Guard, Jedi Consular, Luke Skywalker, Lando Calrissian

Well not on iOS I didn't. It wasn't until the 2nd that I even got any shards. I know I only got 30 because I was at 50/100 before the event started and purposefully waited to get these shards.

Yeah, that's why I said "on Android".

Fuck it, I'm done. Maybe I'll check it out again when the guild stuff goes in. This game hasn't been "fun" for me in months.

Free Phasma shards on Android, what? I didn't get those! Just the Magma Trooper.

Re: Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes (iOS & Android)

iOS users should have gotten enough Phasma shards to unlock the character. 50 shards. I got the first 10 on Friday. The last 10, presumably, yesterday.

Some people report only getting the shards for the day after force closing the app.

Re: Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes (iOS & Android)

Looks like time zone may affect guilds, especially in regard to raids, which it sounds like we set at a particular time, the leader starts and we all have to play at that time...?


Quote:
@LaLiam - no, they cannot set when the payout for things will be, it will simply be based off of their geographical location. Please keep this in mind when forming a Guild.
@Barrok - Kind of answered this one already, it's all about the time zone for daily activities. I'll provide more details about events (Raids) at a later date.
@Barrok - well, to give you a little bit of info, the Raid is turned on by the Guild Leader at whatever time they want. So it does have a way to have a start time. Stay tuned for additional info later!

Re: Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes (iOS & Android)

Since there is a cost associated with starting a guild, I suggest that we all pay our Guild leader (Pinata) something to contribute to the leader (Pinata's) costs. Pinata.

Pinata in in CST I believe.

Re: Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes (iOS & Android)

What kind of cost are we talking about here? Is it one of those things where it's free up to X members then you have to spend crystals to add another one and each one gets progressively more expensive?

This is officially far more complicated and limited than it needs to be. Is this geographical limitation to avoid lag or something?

I hope not. The way Marvel Puzzle Quest does it is ridiculous.

Jesse said that it would not be costly. But to EA, where a POS shard pack sells for $60, who knows what that means.

I am more than happy to contribute to any guild costs. And I think we all should, frankly.

Thank you again to Pinata for being our guild leader!

I think you misunderstand. The time for events is tied to the leader's time zone. that's all geography factors into it. So if Pinata is in CST and our event time is 5 pm CST, whereever you are in the world is when we all do it.

Re: Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes (iOS & Android)

I'll pitch in too of course. Honestly, it's probably better that there's some gateway to creating a guild (even if it's just a few crystals) as it makes people take it more seriously and the game is flooded with one person garbage guilds.

It's probably for the best that our guild leader, piņata, is in CST as it means that we're all within an hour or two (I don't think there's anybody here not in NA?)

In fact, that's just what Jesse said. EA wanted to make a barrier to entry to guilds so that people just didn't make 50 of them. He has said several times that the cost would not be great.

Sounds good to me. I'm sure if there are a large group of us the cost will be very little per person. I'm up for contributing, too.

I just don't want to see the 30th person have to contribute 3x as much as the 10th for the same spot.

Is that how other games do it? I've never seen a pricing model with guilds before, especially for a mobile game.

Re: Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes (iOS & Android)

My only experience is with MPQ and it was something like an extra 100 "hero points" to unlock the next spot as it was the last spot.

For example, if it cost 1,500 to unlock spot 15 then it would cost 1,600 for spot 16. The way we did it here was whoever filled spot X had to pay to unlock spot X+1.

Re: Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes (iOS & Android)

Can anyone make a case for who to go for next in Cantina? Have QGJ and Daka maxed. Don't see myself using Poe or Boba much outside of Tank challenges. Don't need more Jedi.

I guess it's time to start stockpiling these.

Re: Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes (iOS & Android)

I've got QGJ and am going for Daka now. I got Fives from a bronze pack (nice surprise) and find him a decent character for a secondary team. He's pretty tanky though, so if you don't need any more tank characters, not sure you'll want him.

Re: Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes (iOS & Android)

In Heroes of Dragon Age, the cost is 100,000 gold to set up a guild. There are no other costs. I would hope they will do the same here.
