Anyone have any idea or best guess based on previous legendary events when the Daring Droid Event will return? It's Palp right now. Do you guys think R2 will be next?

  • I hope not. I need yoda next (about to switch to Jedi squad in arena after I zeta qgj in a few weeks) so I have time to farm empire characters. With luke on the horizon, I'm focusing on ewoks right now, and I really don't want both Luke's event and r2 to coincide

    Yeah, Yoda probably will be next. Just curious when they might add R2 in the rotation.

    R2 is still classed as extremely rare meaning it will be 5-6 months from when the last one was before he comes back

    Thanks Zaraos, that makes sense. Was that how long it was between the first and second Yoda/Palp events?
  • I'm not sure about yoda, but between the first and second palp events there was a 4 month difference (from august to december)

    Great info! So that would put R2 at maybe September?

    Maybe yes, maybe not, no one knows for sure.

    I could care so much less, cause I got max Yoda.

    Yoda actually came back every month after release. Palps laid dormant for 4 months, came back, then another 3 months until he got thrown into rotation with Yoda. So it looks like this, feb 16 -yoda released, mar-July 16, yoda came back, aug 16 Palps, sept-nov 16 yoda, dec 16 palps, Jan-feb 17 yoda, mar 17 palps, April yoda, may palps, June yoda, July palps, aug yoda, Sept palps, oct my guess is r2, nov I guess thrawn. From there it will keep rotating each month in that order, Yoda, palps, r2, thrawn.

    But yoda and palp will still be every 2 month. They would hit low lvl player with having less trys.
    R2 will be earlyer than Thorn.
    If they would thru Thorn in before x-mas, then they fill the hole with R2 3 Months before.
    This would lead to EP, R2 in Sep and Yoda, Thorn in Dec.

    Just guessing...

    R2 and EP don't have the same timescales... R2 wont be for at least another 2 months and that's generous...

    EP event is no longer an "extremely rare" legendary event.

    Top Jedi squads drop Yoda for Ezra. I'll do so myself in 150 shards & 1 gear level. Yoda's great, but with 3 cleansers (including double-zeta r2) Tenacity Up isn't quite as essential as before. Might want to keep that in mind before gearing/ zetaing Yoda.

    This is exactly the information I was looking for. Thank you Cm3Po. Thanks for taking the time to include all the past dates. Super helpful, bud! = )
