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

Game meta changes periodically however these characters you have or are working towards will serve you well: QGJ, GS, Lumi, Phasma, Leia, RG, and Rey. From the stores, I'd focus on QGJ from Cantina, Leia from Arena, and Phasma / Lumi from GW. You can get Rey shards from the Guild store once you join some raids. Farm GS from Cantina nodes. Having said that, I defer to Pinata, Josh and Chase as they are way better with strategy in this game than I am. I just follow their lead.
Thanks! I know the arena stuff has been discussed, and I've been doing the cannon-fodder thing with one character, but now that I have two available I wanted to clarify the hierarchy so that helps.

And cool, those are the ones I'm working on, except I have Lumi maxed out. I'm trying to build Leia before jumping in on ST Han.

If you can't get a 7* Palpatine in the next 10 days, I'd say don't bother trying. It'll be back, might as well build towards it casually.

That said, STHan is still a great investment for all aspects of the game PLUS he pulls double Rebel/Scoundrel duty. Solid.

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

david, you don't HAVE to do 0 damage, it's just a placeholder for you if you can't make the regular time or you're worried it'll end before you get to it.

If you're going to be free at 3pm EDT tomorrow, you might as well just save both your characters for Phase 2. You might be able to drop the door and that's where the damage really comes!

Wait, I'm going to be off the grid tomorrow.

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

Do you guys have any openings in your guild? I bring a fairly solid lineup
I don't mind my guild, but lots of guys dropping or not participating. I'm always 100% in each day.

I've just gotten in the habit of ALWAYS doing 0 damage. There have only been a couple times I completely missed the raid, but the 0 damage at least gets you some rewards.

I haven't had a chance to fiddle with the whole guest account thing so I keep playing on my old phone and it's working for now. I do have to get it taken care of eventually. I miss a raid here and there when I have back to back meeting days or surprise things pop up at work, which happened quite a bit especially with a lot of my colleagues off campus this week.

Are there enough people around to form a second guild? The guild I'm in is falling apart and I'm looking for a new one.

Sure. How long is the wait list? Enough to justify a second guild (farm team)?

Right now it's you and Rob. I don't think if even all the DVDTalk people made an alt, we'd have enough for a full guild.

Yep, Rob and now you. I'll be honest, though. Unless someone gets burned out or there's another major fiasco like when mods first hit, I doubt we'll lose anyone soon.

We've been full for over a month solid now and morale seems pretty good across the guild. We have a pretty good system going and everyone is a team player (when they don't try to be sneaky). Our raids are almost 100% full (streak of 3 going!) and people are hitting 7* on Han Solo left and right.

Pretty damn good thing we've got!

Rob V - You're first on our wait list. Are you still wanting a new guild? I am opening a spot just as soon as I know who is filling it.

JasonF, you're next on the list.

I'm good now. My guild is doing a real nice job and I'm scoring Top 3-5 in all our raids.... thank you though.

Awesome! How's your Han coming along? We will have 21 complete tomorrow and those that are done get out of the way so top 10 or top 3 is very easy over here.

We just have a little ways to go for thinking about the Heroic Tank Raid again. So your guild might be stronger than ours and I would stay there if so.

My Han hits 6* today, I think. One reason I'm loving this guild--they make sure everyone gets their character! (Even if we drive Pinata batty doing it!!)

Ok, welp, that's a good point. I don't think my guild is strong enough to take on a 7* rancor because we never make it very far when we try.... always 6*.

So, yeah, maybe I should jump ship. What do you need from me to make that happen?

Our tank raid is coming along horribly... still at 76% to go after, what, 3 days now?

lol... I guess my guild is kinda weak in retrospect.

Just an ally code and we are done.

Or you can add me: 583-536-333

Also, you'll need the LINE messaging app on your phone. Just send me a friend request at pinata242. It's required for announcements (which are rare) but otherwise completely optional. It's a good spot to talk strategy and stuff, though. Good group of people.
