I'm on an alt account at level 66, so I have a ways to go before I get to tier 3 and the zeta mission, but I absolutely want to be as ready as possible when I get there. I've decided to put a major focus on ships for this account, since I literally don't care about them on my main.
Anyway, given my shard is new, I've noticed a lot of people aren't giving ships much focus. In the past week I've farmed the two Phoenix ships to 2 stars, and with my PS characters all at level 66, my fleet power is up there, believe it or not. I'm solidly in the 50-100 range and fully expect to be in the top 20 in a few days.
So I've decided I'm going to farm the two PS ships and get them to 7 stars by buying them from the fleet store whenever they show up, because I'm also planning on the PS characters being my main LS team (at least until I can get CLS / R2). This should (hopefully) easily keep me top 20 or top 10 for the foreseeable future. I figure I'll farm Wedge and Biggs' ships to round out my light side ships, along with ... *shrug* ... maybe Ahsoka?
But that leaves me figuring out what DS ships to get, because (surprise surprise) it looks like DS is harder to get than LS, especially when you factor in getting the characters to 7 stars as well.
I think I'm going to get the Vader ship (even though they don't appear too often in the fleet store) because I'll be getting him to 7 stars just by playing, and probably the FOTP one when it appears in the GW shop, because at least now there are 2 hard nodes to get him from. But what should my other ones be? I was considering Maul, but then I'd ALSO have to be farming him from the fleet shop, so I'd probably hit a shard wall.
So any thoughts - what are the easiest DS ships to get to be prepared for the zeta challenge, keeping in mind I'm only level 66 so high level hard node farming is out.
Slave 1! Of course - Boba is an easy farm from the cantina shop, and Slave 1 shows up at least once a week (*cough*), so I should probably have it to 5 stars by the time I'm 78.
So that's Vader, Boba, and FOTP for DS ships. I need to figure out the other two to get.
