Finally got RG up to a spot where I want to move him into my arena team, currently running Dooku(L), Daka, QGJ, Lumi, Phasma, all 7-star and gear VIII or IX. I'm assuming Phasma's the odd (wo)man out here, but wanted some input.

I think I'm on a relatively early/high-progress shard, I have to work pretty hard to stay ranked anywhere higher than 50ish.

If you have difficulty with the savage fight, this is all I've found to help.

Best the driods until they heave 1 hit left, single target DPS savage until he smashes everyone. Kill a droid, pop a heal and kick his rear end. Rinse with other droid if you still suck.

Oh and my 3 star teebo makes that one challenge gravy, that was good advice on here.

Well, good news I suppose, who knows how often will they rotate them though.

I still want IGD, Aayla, and Kit for team counterstrike. Until I can get Aayla and Kit, I'm not interested in IGD though (at least, there are a lot of heroes that are higher priority than him until this is possible).

My primary arena team are all gear 9 at this point. This required 3 pre-crafted parts and 2 shipment furnace purchases. In all likelihood my first gear 10 will probably be fives, since his gear nine didn't require a blocking part, and i have one pre-crafted part left.

I was able to precraft some arakyds, but not the furnaces. I have one left, and so far I know that both Poggle and Eeth need one to progress. Don't think I'll spend it on either.

Yup, I couldn't precraft anything, as I was counting on the patch dropping to make these parts more available... which lead me to farm hard mode shards instead of gear.

Little did I know, that at the same time, they would be making certain gear IMPOSSIBLE to get without raiding. So I'm in GVIII hell.

I managed to precraft 2 droid callers which went to QGJ and Mace Windu (who will be able to hit gear X in a few days when I get to 78, not that it matters much on him). Still far away from crafting even one furnace

I've been having good runs with Sid/Luminara/Geo Soldier/Phasma/Poe still. I used to be sitting at about 150ish on my server but fell down to 2k or so after not playing for a few weeks. Same team I've managed to claw my way back up to around 500 now and I'm still beating vastly superior teams.

The title screen almost put me off the game before trying it. Just the way everyone is slightly "off" makes it look really amateurish.

From center to right: Short-armed Vader, downs-syndrome Chewie, too-much-plastic-surgery Han, surprise sex-face Windu, football-head Yoda.

The game is worth it alone for that drat grin Sidious has.

It's easy to beat a superior team when piloted by the lovely AI. The measure of your team's quality is how far you drop over a day.

Since he's weak to status effects, bringing stunners helps. Dooku, Asajj, and Daka are on my go-to Savage team. On an average run, he never takes a turn.

I run Phasma (L), Dooku, Daka, Asajj, Poggle on auto.

Poggle is good because he has ability block on his basic.

I run this but with Talia instead of Poggle. She gets you another clutch heal if turn order ends up hosed and she can give you two turns of debuffs with her jump attack. Not that it really matters because I also auto it and the computer is apparently not smart enough to save the heals if people start getting hit.

Also, Daka is hilariously bad at healing when it comes to Savage. She will only heal if someone is dead. Because of Savage's 100% TM ability, if one person dies, they're probably all dead.

e: Also, I never leveled her past 50ish, and she's 4*. At some point I plan to get back to that...but...there are a lot of higher priority heroes.

For awhile, people acknowledged that you should finish with a not awful team comp. Then some people started intentionally finishing with gently caress-you comps. Now, I generally have to finish with a ridiculous team comp to beat the ridiculous team comp I'm fighting...so...we've all basically hosed ourselves by using ridiculous team comps.

The teams I sometimes face in GW are utterly bizarre. I managed to get a B squad that can usually run the first 4-5 missions for me, which is nice. Tonight they could only get through three, but my Luminara managed to keep her protection until the second to last fight somehow.

I am working on starring up Stormtrooper Han, QGJ, and I am getting close to buying a Phasma from GW. Not entirely sure who I should be working on specifically? I am sorta trying to get Han to gear level 7 but it's a miserable slog. Old Daka is stuck on 6 too because of the slog. I sort of want to unlock Dark Side Hard map 5 to start farming Bariss but I am struggling on the Dark Side normal maps on that stage, and Dooku and RG take for loving ever to farm. Do I just need to wait until I can get a Phasma? Should I be working on some other poo poo?

Ran three GW without losing a single person. Didn't even use Bariss. Not sure what that is all about, but I like it.

Yeah go crazy. There's no way to actually win this game so just play it how you want. I wish there were enough Jawas for a team

I hate ewoks but they have really good team synergy.

So I'm having trouble figuring out which characters I should use for my arena team. I've been able to keep myself in the top 100 for a while now, but I feel like my makeup is holding me back. I have a 4*Ben and 4*QGJ I'm trying to make work , but maybe I need more stars before I rotate them in?

Original team: (L)7*88, 6*GS, 7*Lumi, 4*JC, 2*RG

New team: (L)4*Ben, 6*GS, 7*Lumi, 4*QGJ, 2*RG
(Ben was too slow and ended up applying Mind Tricks after the enemy team took their turn, so I swapped to a QGJ lead to help Ben attack sooner)

In retrospect I replaced my 4*JC with a 4*QGJ which left Lumi as my only healer -- but now I can remove taunts. I think the real mistake was dropping my 7*88 for a 4*Ben. Perhaps I should keep using QGJ over JC and bring back 88 over Ben.

I also have 2 benched characters I've been working on. 4*Daka (she'll be 4 for a while, I think I want to star QGJ first) and 5*Phasma (she is starring up fast from GW). Daka won't be able to replace my Lumi for a while, but I can definitely see Phasma fitting in somewhere. I'm just not sure how to add her. GS and JC are gear level 8, everyone else is gear level 7.

Then there's my tank problem. I know RG is only 2* (2 shards away from 3*) but I can't get him from cantina yet so I've just been farming hard. I just got Stormtrooper Han to 4*, but he's still level 1 gear 1. I've been using all my tokens on him, so I imagine the smart move is to level and gear him up as a replacement for RG until I can get his stars up to match Han.

Should I level Han to replace RG for now? How would that change my team makeup? I simply don't have enough experience here and would really appreciate any guidance you guys can provide. Here's my profile so you can see my full roster in case I'm missing a better composition:

Wow slowly dropping Jedi from both my gw and arena teams is making life so much easier. I mean I still run lumi in arena and her and Barris in gw, but having fives and Rey in there just makes it amazingly easier. Having at least two people who can just bash dorku and SIDS heads makes things so much easier.

Especially when they're in every drat team on my shard. I'm sick of needing to primary sidious every time in GW. 3-turn healing immunity on a basic attack is a bit much.

I got QGJ to Gear X last night. He's a loving beast 7700 power rating.

And get this: There's a good chance I hit Gear XI in the next two weeks. He needs 32 more raid pieces that I brought last night with guild points, and then he needs level 80 for one other item that I already have made. It's almost stupid 90% of my roster is gear VIII and he's going to get to XI.

I just unlocked Dooku and Daka this morning.

I'm going to go for one more star on Daka and then start working on unlocking QJG.

Almost have my entire team up to Gear VII, for protection. Too bad it only lasts for the first few GW battles before it's gone. Since I'm pouring my resources into my main team, I don't really have a "B" team, unless you count the random level 40 characters I haven't touched in a week. Usually in GW I just get my 400 points, buy Lumi, and then run through a few more nodes until I hit the last few, then I quit for the day. The only GW I completed was my very first one.
