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

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

Yoda and QGJ make LS battles a breeze with Lumi, JC, and even Poe doing no taunts. I finally have all 309 stars currently available.

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

Grind is getting to me but still plugging along for now. Appreciate some direction again on where to spend my loot.

Cantina: (I redeem about every other day)
QGJ - 3* (5/30 to 4*), G7, lvl 60
Daka - don't have (50/80 to obtaining)
JK Guardian - 2* (3/25 to 3*), lvl 1

Get QGJ to 5* then focus on Daka? Or JK Guard if going for Yoda (see below for more on this)?

Arena: (ranked 500-600, redeem once per day)
Sid - 6* (15/100 to 7*), G7, lvl 60
Eeth Koth - don't have
Savage Op - 3* (0/30 to 4*), lvl 8

I'm still one Jedi shy of 5 for the next Yoda event. Is it worth it to spend Arena tokens on Eeth and spend resources to level JK Guard? Or forget Yoda entirely and get Sid to 7*? Then focus on Savage?

GW: (lucky to get 400 to spend per day)
Lumi - 6* (25/100 to 7*), G7, lvl 60
Phasma - 5* (0/85), G7, lvl 60
IG-86 - 4* (50/65), G7, lvl 60 -- will be 5* once I claim all of Feb daily rewards

Thinking I'll just focus on Lumi to 7*?

Others:
GS 4* (62/65), G8, lvl 61
Luke 4* (0/65), G5, lvl 60
Talia 4* (0/65) G4, lvl 49
Mace - don't have (3/80)
No Bariss either

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

Gooter, I would focus on maxing Lumi and DS before anything else.

Next, i would focus on GS, IG-86 and Luke to 5* each as this meta loves offense.

Then I would return focus to Phasma to 7* as she's shaping up to be your leader.

Then go back to Daka b/c you will need a DS healer.

For Yoda, I'm assuming that you have three main Jedis - QGJ, JC and Lumi. At this point, you aren't going to get Yoda when he comes back around in March. So I would concentrate on five Jedi you will actually use. That means spending the next several weeks on Mace and Barriss. I don't care for Eeth and JK is very underpowered, although currently she has the highest gear level in the game for some reason.

BTW, where's Talia? I like her more than most and I'm seeing at higher levels she's quite useable.

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

After an incredible run of shards in Cantina, I now have Mace at 5*. Need to level him up to 60 (he's at 55 now) but I need to keep credits for promotions of Lumi to 7*, and QGJ/IG-88/Poe to 5*, all of which happens this week. That's $2.5M credits for that alone, so he's going to have to wait. He'll be there by the Jedi event. I am working like hell to unlock Barriss' catina node (need to be L69 and I'll be there by the weekend or early next week). I am still 30+ shards from unlocking, so that's 100ish shards in less than three weeks to get my fifth 5* Jedi (Lumi, JC, QGJ, Mace and Barriss). I'm happy that I didn't cave to Eeth just to get Yoda as my team is much better for it in the long run.

Nice! I don't need Barriss because everyone else has her and Yoda just replaces the 5th Jedi anyway

Well I have to get Barriss to get Yoda .

Plus Barriss is the mack mommy in GW. Really looking forward to getting her to 5*. Probably early March at this point.

Not having Barriss and finishing GW every day, I can assure you she isn't necessary I don't even use Lumi's leader ability. All about speed!

Hard to finish GW when you face full 70s on node 4 my friend. Plus you have a much, much better team than me b/c you are much, much better than me at this game.

Added Talia. I stopped focusing on her when I got other heroes.

Yes those 3 main jedis. I don't have the Bariss node unlocked yet

Thanks for the advice

I'm just giving you a hard time. I would love to have Barriss, but it never made sense to my squad. Plus I don't like you implying I'm wasting my time with Eeth! We'll see when everyone doubles down on droids for R2 in April!

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

GW can suck my circumcised dick. Full 70s and max gear on Node 6. Come the fuck on.

"We know GW is bugged. We know how to fix the bug. We just won't. But we will release useless new characters for whales to buy."

This is why I will never buy another chromium again. Ever. You can have my weekly $10 but fuck you for anything else.

Josh, I think you need to take a break from this game before it gives you an ulcer. Seriously man... it's a game, if it's not fun, why bother?

So you are saying I shouldn't have gotten circumcised then?

Stop attacking level 70 teams in the arena, and you won't have to face them in GW.

Uh, no, that's not how it works at all. Squad power. Been confirmed all over the forums.

Plus, I have never challenged a 70s team in Arena. I'm a pussy like that. I purposely keep my rank below 40.

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

Another change I've noticed lately: QGJ's "Harmonious Assault" no longer kills on his attack, but will on the assist. Is this intentional? Maybe it does kill the enemy but gives me the benefit of the assist every time? Like if QGJ stood alone or the selected assister was stunned (another bug, imo), the enemy would die by QGJ's blade.

I don't have a lot of other dual-attacks out there. Is this true across the board now?

Yes, I've noticed the same on all specials which call assists. Happens to GS all the time. His special will kill HP but still calls the assist. Probably just in the programming. Sucks because you've essentially wasted it.

Unless the assister gets a buff from his/her attack like Yoda. Most of them are debuff so, yeah, that would be a waste.

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

I've not wanted to say it for I know it will curse me, but I auto through GW at this point, everyone surviving the whole thing 95% of the time. I'm usually ranked between 150-250 in arena. I seldom even see lvl 60 teams in GW anymore.

I use Sid Lvl 63 7* G7, Lumi Lvl 63 7* G7, JC Lvl 63 4* G8, Eeth Koth Lvl 61 5* G7, and Chewie Lvl 60, 5*, G6. Total Power 21,120.

GW is very inconsistent player to player. Enjoy those gems while you can!!

I'm getting all I can before I reach L70. As much problems as I am having, I hear they get worse when you hit 70 b/c part of the problem with the bug is that it doesn't take into account player level 70 and character level 70.

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

So between me and my mohel we beat GW today. The last node was only 66 but they were all max geared and it took 15 players to get through them. Reward? Greedo shard. I think they should change GW rewards to shard of choice.
