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

I guess it's time to start stockpiling these.
Fives without question. He is a tank and although he doesn't hit terribly hard, he has about the same counter as Dooku does with a TON more health. His assist call is nice too.

I know you don't want more Jedi but Snips is the tits right now with her buffs.

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

I know those are the two best characters out of who's left, but are they really worth the investment considering how slow it is to get Cantina tokens already? I can always farm them from hard missions over infinity years. I would just hate to waste them and then find out the next update adds someone I do care about to the pool.

When and where do you use Fives and Ahsoka?

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

I use Fives in everything. When the going gets tough in Galactic War and I reach the point I can't go on, Fives is always the last man standing, every time. The counter is high, the HP is high, the assist is excellent. He's one of my go-to. He and Dooku work very well together. Nothing more fun than having Dooku hit Sidious with lightning in the first turn, Sidious return fire by hitting everyone, and then watching Dooku and Fives bring him to zero or close to it with their counter attacks.

People use Ashoka in both GW and Arena.

They have definitely nerfed them. I am on the same pace. They will of course deny any nerfing.

Yep, when the possible rewards lists 5 per attempt, don't give me 2.2 and expect me to believe that's average.

I completely forgot to do my Arena battles today. Guess I'll do them now even though the prizes have been awarded.

Fortitude has become "Protection". Works like a shield. If I were you, I would not spend crystals after the update hits. Game sounds like it may suck.

I take it it wasn't this crew dealing with Sidious like bosses.

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

OK, so Opress will be 7* tonight, Sid and him will now be maxed, any suggestions for who to go next w arena credits. I'm leaning toward either Han or Ventress. I don't need Eeth for Yoda since I am going Ahsoka after QGJ w battle credits. I may stock pile them for a bit just in case they add anyone to list. Battle credit characters are much better than arena characters.

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

Don't sleep on IG-88 for Arena. His AEQ is devastating and since he's slower, he stands to get a buff in the new meta. But STH and Ventress are great picks too.

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

So I got the final achievement for purchasing 1,500 shipments. It's really nice not having to worry about that every 6 hours. I still look in there periodically, but if I have more than about 30 of something, I just leave it alone now.

General rule of thumb is 100. But honestly, I don't blame you.

I am still trying to figure out why the tank challenge doesn't have stun cuff as a reward. These new guild activities better have it. If I kill a fucking Rancor I want like 300 of them.

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

I really feel like I'm "stuck" now that I've run out of credits. I got one character starred up, but the rest I just don't have enough credits for and every time I accumulate credits, I level again and figure it's better to spend my money leveling all my main team instead of just adding a star to one. Frustrating.

I did have an amazing fight this week--my QGJ, Lumi, Sid, GS, JC team against a mostly-droid team of the same level. They completely wiped me out without mercy. Makes me want to build that team! Just not enough credits or awards to do it quickly...

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

One more thought on the spreadsheet--we could add "Player level" to get an idea of who is what level.

Nice! I still need Barriss for the first time. Always like when I can borrow her.

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

Although things may change soon, I took some advice and invested a bit in Royal Guard. Up to 4 stars with L8 gear and level 73.

Rolled through GW today with him in the lineup for the 1st time with no issues, even though he's low 4000's power-wise. Would love to see him @ 7*. Too bad it would take months to get there.

I'm 30 shards away, terrible drop rate today though. She is my last step for 7* Yoda.

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

So, I don't know much about the Raid feature yet, but what I read on the forums last night it seems like you're going to need as many 7* characters as you can. Daka will be my 9th on Thursday and Dooku is right behind her as my 10th.

I have almost everyone in GW shipments at 6* now, so I can easily get one or more of them up if needed. I am going to work on my tanks so I can more easily handle that challenge, so Poe and Boba and Chewie might be getting some attention. I would like to do RG like JNielsen is doing, but I don't think I have the patience 1-2 shards per day.
