Anyone playing SW: Galaxy of Heroes app?

Recommended Posts

Yeah, I have his abilities about maxed. Just wait till you get Vader and combo them together. It is very, very brutal. I pretty much just breeze through Galactic War with a team of Palp, Vader, TIE Fighter Pilot, Royal Guard, and Maul. 

 

Just remember, you need Rebels to unlock him, so just something to keep in mind when you are looking at what characters to unlock. Not sure when the event will roll around again.

So, they are adding Darth Nihlus to the game. 

No idea who he is... But whatever, Ill take him if he is free! As long as he isnt like Deathtrooper, where I cant get him past 2 stars without spending ridiculous $$$ on packs or whatever they decide to do. I got my hopes up, thinking Deathtrooper was going to replace my Qui Gon with that AoE dispell, but he is so crappy at 2 stars without a borrowed Palp as leader lol. Im also thinking we are going to need a Sith squad to unlock this new Darth, which really sucks because I only have Vader and I dont even have good enough Rebels or Jedi to unlock Palp or Yoda yet so I wont be able to farm any Sith characters for a while... He does look cool though. I mean, I dig the mask and everything . So there is that I guess.

Yeah, that was before they announced that the Palpatine event was becoming common. 

The tier 4 Krennic event is rough. 

Yeah for real. I have  some pretty stacked characters (7 star IG-88 among them) and I breezed through the first three tiers. But the 4th is brutal.

Nihilus won't be free. Some kind of a special event. 

A sad, sad reality... What sort of a team are we thinking we are going to need for Nihilus? My bet would be all Sith, but that would be pretty hard for the majority of players IMO. Ive more or less stopped farming Jedi other than the ones in my Arena team because Yoda doesnt seem to be all that great aside from being super cool. My Rebels are almost good enough to at least unlock Palp, so maybe I'd have time to start farming characters for the Nihilus event as long as its not all Sith or something crazy.

I'm leaning toward Sith, maybe Nightsisters. Sith isn't too bad. They don't have many options, sure. But most of them are pretty easy to farm. Savage and Sidious are in Arena. Maul is in Fleet and Guild. Vader is in the Shard Shop and Fleet, along with all the achievements. 

Of course, I worked toward the Yoda event because I wanted those 5 Vader shards. But then, it turns out I didn't need to, since I could beat the Ewok Assault event.

Maul is in Fleet shipments? Well, that makes things a bit easier. Ive been farming him and Rey out of Guild but Im not that close to getting Maul yet. I was wanting to farm Sun Fac and possibly Wedge out of Fleet, but I might just have to start farming Maul instead of Wedge. I'm like 8 shards away from getting Dooku, so Ill probably have him by at least tommorrow. Arena is where it gets tricky though, as that is where I get all my Akbar and Stormtrooper Han shards for my Arena team. Maybe I could stop farming Han and Akbar for a while though, since my Arena team isn't quite strong enough to stay in the top 200 yet and nobody has knocked me past 500 for a while. I guess I would end up with the same Arena rewards either way. Do you think a mostly Sith team would be viable in the Arena at the higher tiers though once I get Palp? I was really wanting to do a palp lead, then have Vader, Dooku, Maul and maybe a tank or just 5 Sith as I progress in the game mostly for fun, but I'm wondering if Id have a use for all these Sith after the special event is done? I'd probably still use the Palp/Vader combo a lot, but I dont really want to farm the other guys if I'll hardly use them.

We will see how Nihlus affects Sith squads. 

For GW, I use Palp, Maul, Vader, TIE Pilot, and Royal Guard, and pretty much just breeze through it. Maul is also decent for the Tank raid. Savage has been useful for Cantina and Dark Side battles.

Pretty much have a focus on what to farm. I would suggest Scoundrels, which are a fairly easy farm, and the Training Droid and Credit events are pretty key later on. That, and Fett is just amazing. On the other hand, spreading out your focus makes Galactic War easier with multiple squads being able to handle it. 

Also feel free to grab my ally code up thread. It will make Dark Side and Cantina missions a tad easier. And it may convince you to farm Rebels, since the Palpatine event is going to be much more common now.

Downloaded the app on Thursday and been playing it some since.  Fun game so far, it's a lot like DC Legends but with more stuff to do. 

Is there any tips or tricks for someone just starting?  Right now I'm like lvl 33 I think. 

Try to complete all the daily challenges as often as you can. Thats really the best way to gain XP. Also, dont spend the purple crystals on packs, instead you want to be spending those on ENERGY refreshes, specifically the Cantina energy once you unlock cantina battles/mod battles ect. In the Cantina Battles, you can sim a battle as many times as you want (provided you have the required energy) and this will give you shards to unlock a character, depending on which battle you decide to sim. Note, to sim a battle you must complete it with a 3-star rating. Also, Id recomend watching some videos on youtube to see which characters you should be getting first and just some other basic tips. The best videos Ive found are from "Warrior from Team Instinct". Thats the name of his youtube channel, so go check out his vidoes! Also, I can give you my Ally Code tommorow when I log in, because I dont have it memorized lol. This will let you borrow Heroes from your allies, helping you complete various battles and such (you will get much more value from Sithborg's Palp than my Akbar lol). Also, join a guild as soon as possible because you can get gear donations from other members as well as various other bonuses. 

 

 Sorry if this is a little long, but to summarize, just go watch some videos from "Warrior from Team Instinct" on youtube. It really helps! 

Edit: When you go to his Youtube channel, go to playlists, then to the "Farming Guides/How to Videos" category and scroll down untill you start seeing videos with the title "Best F2P Farming Guide:" and watch all the videos in that series.

Level 75...running (as my arena team) 7-Star Tier XVIII Qui-Gon Jin (Leader), 7-Star Tier XVIII Old Ben Kenobi, 7-Star Tier XVIII Boba Fett, 7-Star Tier XVII Sidious, 7-Star Tier XVII Biggs.

My biggest challenges come from the Wedge-Biggs-Ackbar teams.  Especially those who have evidently modded them out for speed.

For Fleet, I've got 7-stars on a lot of ships, but my main is Ackbar 7-star (Capital Ship) + Slave 1, Sith Infiltrator, Umbaran Fighter, Biggs' X-Wing, Ashoka's Jedi Starfighter.....with Jedi Consular's Starfighter, Vader's TIE Advanced X-1, and Genosian Spy's Fighter in reserve.   Everyone 7 Stars, everyone Level 75.

Consistantly staying in the Top 3 for that.  But when #1 and #2 are both level 81 with 7-stars on everything, just can't break through.

Enjoy the use of a 6 star, gear 9, lvl 79 Palpatine. Will definitely help you blow through Cantina and Dark Side battles. 

Sent a friendy. 

Am loving Maul. Got him up to 7* and he's a beast. Speedy Ackbar + Wedge + Biggs combo is nice too. Mixed with Fett and Maul they can usually tear down fellas before they get a shot off.

I have no interest in ships though. The battles seem to draaaag. I only do what I have to do to get dailies. 

Having said that, I know I should never buy packs, but I'm 4 shards off the large fleet pack. Everything I've read said STAY AWAY!!! But I'm the guy that will push the 'don't push' labelled button. I'll update tomorrow on the shabby haul .. and you can all laugh at me.

For any of the fellas starting out .. my Ally Code is 977-564-744. I have some characters that should help you out a bit.

We were allies, for a short time. Which is a shame, because I borrowed your Boba a bit when I was at lower levels lol. Now I'm mostly just stuck with Sithborg's Palp (not that I'm complaining, his Palp is awesome).

I do know that I am highly tempted to work on a First Order team. I ran into a high ranked version on node 12 the other day in Galactic War, and it was kind of mean. I really do like the rework they did on them, especially the officer.

Alright, so I logged in and my Ally Code is 382-839-562 if you want it.

I made the mistake of spending crystals on packs, won't be doing that again.  

Yeah, packs are bad because they give you random rewards most of the time, so you can't really focus on getting the characters that you want. Also, I forgot to add when you borrow a hero from an ally there will generally be a 4 hour cool-down before you can borrow a hero from that ally again. However, this can be bypassed by going to Challenges and manually (doesn't work if you sim) completing one of the GEAR Challenges.

Yep, bought the mega fleet pack. Got a total of 25 shards for the 4 characters and 25 for their ships. Egregiously underwhelming. Oh well. Lesson learnt. 

I was secretly hoping for a Scimitar or Slave One. Didn't even get enough to unlock a character or ship.

Which, and I'm echoing other's words here, does seem rather misleading. 5-100 shards is what is promoted. What's the probability of getting 3 of the 4 pairs at only 5 shards and 1 at 10? This is not an isolated experience either. It's clearly stacked against you. Which, from a customer experience perspective, doesn't help your product. I'm in no way tempted to explore packs again, meaning they have effectively removed me as a prospective customer from the crystal store.

At least throw 20 character/ship shards per unit in the packs. It's not a lot, there's not much you can do with 20 shards but the experience wouldn't be so negative as to turn a customer away from your product. It's not like one can earn 2,500 crystals over night.

And please don't read this as complaining, I knew that others have had this experience .. Am merely telecasting my experience and thoughts.

I had like 800 or so crystals.  I think most of those came from buying a Dark Side starter pack, it was only $5 and I got 3 or 4 DS characters from it.   So I saved up for the 4 pack deal for 1350 crystals.  I got 4 sets of shards, not even a single character.   So now there's no way I'd consider giving them another dime, unless there's some sort of cheep ($5-8) pack that guarantees at least once character I want.
