Man, tier 6 is loving rough. I don't have any dudes that can dispel debuffs because Ackbar and Ewok Elder are both 5* so I was just eating deathmarks left and right. I'm going to have to prioritize Ackbar and start spending refreshes on Elder. I actually haven't even played phase 1 of the raid before because it was always over before I logged on.

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.

Barriss is what you want for finishing GW. Since I started leading with her, I have not missed a GW. Get her up to 5-6* and she will take you through GW no prob.

I just auto through all Gw nodes nowadays with barriss/lum/ahsoka/qgj/obi-wan. I was having trouble with the last few strong nodes until I swapped in old ben, now he just shuts their poo poo down.

I hope they revisit how the new gear is distributed. I've top 3d four times now in a raid and watch the store closely and I seem to be getting the same three or four pieces of gear that no one needs other than QGJ's binoculars.

Or maybe the heroic will be easier than it seems and actually drop needed gear.

The bottom three slots in the guild shop are all raid-exclusive gear. One of them is necessary for Geo Soldier X, one for QGJ X, and one for Lumi IX, so I'm happy with all those options

So, I have $200 laying around not doing anything except sitting in a PayPal account. If I were to spend it on this game, theoretically of course, what would give me the most bang for my buck, as it were?

Either that or I'll buy a new pullup bar and another piece of weight equipment, which actually has an ROI not measured in electrons.

Unless you are brand new to the game, the Chromium packs are not worth it (and even if you are new, their usefulness is debatable). The only character bundle that wasn't a ripoff was the old Dooku one they had. I guess if you were gonna spend money, spend it on crystals for energy recharges.

I've read that if you drop $200 into crystals, and then spend them on the current Arodium(sp?) character (Wedge), you will get enough shards to 7* him. Not that I'm recommending this, but if you absolutely want a 7* non-farmable character, that's the way to do it.

Yeah, I'm thinking for now we'll alternate between T5 and T6 so that everyone can have some fun. It is pretty ridiculously hard though...if it takes us 4 or 5 days to finish, we'll probably do another couple weeks of T5.

As far as I can tell, the three components are always there, but they show up during each interval at randomly assigned packs of 5, 10, and 25. Sounds like you've just gotten an unlucky run of 25-packs?

Short answer: I"m Scrooge McDuck in real life

So, this Yoda event. I have a 5* Lumi, 3* JC, and 2* JG. Could I theoretically beat up to the 3* challenge?

I am at 70/80 Rey shards and I've gone 4 entire days (16 refreshes) without seeing Rey shards in the guild store. RNG is a dick.

On the plus side, I've finally got STHan high enough to slot him into my Arena squad and boy does his taunt win battles in the 60s. Dunno if it'll stay relevant but it's pretty awesome.

Nope. You can't enter without 5 Jedi, and they need to be the appropriate star level. So, to do the 1*, you need 5 1*+. 2* = 5 2*+. Etc.

I am 78 and ST Han is pretty lovely, if he taunts I just use qgj to whack it off and I get a dps boost to my squad. RG is much better.

Seeing any of dooku/rg/rey make me think twice. All three is a nope.

I would recommend holding off anyways. You can't unlock Yoda until you've finished the 5* challenge. I put in the OP the best jedi to work on for this challenge and where to get them -- check that out.

Folks are claiming on Reddit that T7 is miles easier than T6, one dude claims that if everyone has a 7* team of phasma, rey, GS, rex, and QGJ (lol 7* rex, but perhaps there is a farmable replacement?) you can finish the T7 raid super quick. No idea how true this is, and no idea how many people in the guild even have 1 full 7* team (we could know this if everyone did the swgoh.gg thing and marked themselves public, right now we only have like 20 guys on there), but might be worth thinking about in the future.

Weird. I'd still be nervous about starting it with the 2 day time limit though. I have the shards to take Phasma to 7*, Rey is 7*, QGJ is 7*. At least for the first phase, you need to run Elder or Ackbar in place of Rex for the debuffs...Ackbar probably deals more damage. Not sure who I would put in place of GS...maybe after I finish RG I'll finally get around to him.


e: Reading up on T6 vs T7:

quote:

T6 values deep rosters with lots of specific roles. T7 is a rancor pinata where you try to get everyone at least one whack before it bursts open.

T7 is easier than T6 if you have a full guild of whales with deep 7* rosters. For us, not so much.

Gear him up. With the tm change/bug? he goes before the enemy half the time and gives you 2 turns to kill anyone scary while taking precious little damage. I have to slow down on the middle few nodes to let his CD come back (and fill his tm if I can fix it that way).

He's not as good as BO for GW but he's miles ahead of Lumi for teams that aren't five Jedi, and he's actually useful outside GW. It may just mesh well with my heavy disable team but when 80% of their turns are stunned, o.down, or ability blocked and 20% whiff and donate TM you don't take so much damage.

Just looking at our progression so far on T6 I would say as a guild we might be months away from trying T7. Even with reduced health on T7, you need the full guild to put in high-end work and we don't really have that yet.

Use both I run ST Han Lead, Rey RG GS QGJ (all gear IX) I never lose on offense and don't drop out of #20 ever anymore. RG helps take some of pressure off of Han when he gets down, but by that time his TM has gotten me a couple more swings with Rey/GS/QGJ that when he does bite it it's too late for the enemy anyway

So, forgive me if I'm missing something obvious, but what's the benefit of running the game through Windows in Bluestacks? I see that thing in the OP about the pack with the IG-86. How do you get that? I already have him, so I'm assuming it'll turn to shards.
