"Hiya Holotable Heroes! Here are the Game Updates for 12/6/2017"

Rey (Jedi Training) is arriving soon in Galaxy of Heroes! This Resistance hero is embarking on a journey that will change both her and the Galaxy. Rey (Jedi Training) will unlock through the eagerly anticipated Hero's Journey event as a Seven Star character. To begin the journey to unlocking Rey (Jedi Training), players will require the following:
  • Rey (Scavenger)
  • Finn
  • Veteran Smuggler Han Solo
  • Veteran Smuggler Chewbacca
  • BB-8
(To complete the event, players will require the above characters at seven stars)
In order to accomplish this, we've brought back BB-8's Legendary Event! We've updated BB-8's Legendary Event to include a new, additional event - the Mythic Event! Upon completing the Legendary "Pieces and Plans" Event, the Mythic "Pieces and Plans" Event will open to players and run for two days during the course of the Legendary Event. In the Mythic version, players will be able to replay the original Legendary Event final tier, play a new, more difficult tier where they can take any characters in, and a new third tier that reverses the encounter! Best of all, the new Mythic Event is recurring - meaning every time the Legendary Event returns, so does the Mythic Event. For more information on the Mythic Event, please read on.

EVENTS

Mythic Events!

With this update to Galaxy of Heroes we introduce our newest event type: Mythic Events. Frequently requested by players, a Mythic Event is a way to replay a previously completed Legendary Event! Mythic Events are max-level content that will only appear once you’ve completed the Legendary version first. Once the Legendary version is completed, the Mythic Event will unlock immediately and become available to play as long as it is still running. Here are the details:
  • Mythic Events share the same name and theme of their Legendary cousins, but have altered content. The first Mythic Event will be Pieces and Plans (BB-8). Future content updates will add new Mythic Events over time.
  • Mythic Events will run over the weekend during which the Legendary is live. So if you have completed the Legendary BB8 Event Pieces and Plans you will see the Pieces and Plans Mythic Event on this coming weekend of December 9th. If you haven’t yet unlocked BB-8, but manage to do so before the end of the weekend, you will still be eligible to participate in the Mythic version.
There are 3 tiers in each Mythic Event:
  • Tier 1 Is the same content as the final tier of the Legendary Event, including all cutscenes, dialog, and squad requirements. As a bonus, once this tier has been completed with a 3-Star victory, it can be simmed (no more waiting through cutscenes and dialog if you do not want to!).
  • Tier 2 Is the same battle as Tier 1, but removes all cutscenes, dialog, and squad requirements. Ever wanted to see how the Empire would fare fighting the Resistance in Pieces and Plans? Then the 2nd tier of Mythic Events is for you!
  • Tier 3 “Flips the script” and tasks you with forming a squad based using the Event’s Legendary character and their allies to fight the faction you used to unlock them. For Pieces and Plans, this means forming a squad of Resistance with BB-8 included and battling the First Order in the ruins of Maz’s castle. Mythic Event 3rd tiers are extremely challenging, and gear 11+ and powerful mods are highly recommended.
Each Tier will provide mods as rewards. The mods will be guaranteed 5-dot, and B-A Rarity (Purple – Gold). Mods will match the sets from mod challenge requirements which are thematically tied to the event. In the case of Pieces and Plans, which uses Resistance and First Order, the mod sets will be Speed and Offense.
Additionally, to reward the extreme challenge of Tier 3, limited Gear 12 equipment salvage will be earned. We hope you enjoy the new Mythic Events!

  • Begins: December 9th
  • Minimum level requirements: 85
  • Notes: Requires one Squad of First Order, One Squad of Resistance, and BB-8

    So the 2nd recurring event on the calendar will be CLS mythic event. @Kyno you thought you were slick telling me they wouldn’t call CLS a recurring event earlier didn’t ya?? Lol. But they specifically call the mythic events recurring. And there’s no other event planned around that time frame.
  • Well done guys. Well done.
  • Very cool. Will there be any FOST bundles?
  • The Jedi pack is interesting. Hopefully a couple of Jedi zetas or reworks in the future perhaps or why else would they do it? Anybody heard any rumours.
  • Wish there was a gem bundle for VS Han and Chewie, but double drops works too. Thanks for the Double Drops, CG! When will we get to see the New Rey's Kit Reveal?

    cool would be nice if the double drops lasted a bit longer though :)
  • Double Drops again!!! Seriously wow thank you so much. I can't believe they actually are having them again.
  • Only one vets pack? Surprised. Can you up the limit to two?
  • So the wait was worth it. Beyond expectations.
    Good job and thank you!
  • I was really hoping the double drops would last longer than one day since 16 energy nodes are really not easy farming, especially two of them. I guess I have technically two weeks to farm them still but I am really not getting good drops for Chewie. I would have much rather had separate packs with 80 shards each for the two Vets like we got for the CLS event since I am about 20 shards away from 5* Chewie, and 5* Han already. So if I could get 100 shards for each in the two weeks, I could definitely spend for the packs if they were 80shards/20 bucks. But I am definitely not spending for a 50 shard pack with them combined.
  • Nice, the Double drops for 2 days does change the calculus for those who are currently panic farming.
  • Okay, Mythic Events, point goes to devs. Thank you.
  • The extra shards from two days of double drops is not likely to make the difference unless you're very close.
  • Will it be more clear in game when the Mythic event ends, even if you haven't finished the legendary event? Like does it end at midnight local time on Sunday? I'm definitely finishing BB8 this time, but probs would have till the end since I've still got a few kylo shards to go. But I'll def speed it up if the mythic event ends before bb8s legendary does.

    Super stoked about new mythic events! Hope they come to all the legendary events! If they're fairly regular this could be the new way we've needed to farm mods, considering cantina energy is in such high demand.
  • Um, the in game notice implied double drops for everything, not just the characters needed for Rey. Please clarify.
  • Double drops are nice, but why aren't they closer to the event, I won't hit 83 till right before the event, so can't even panic farm the vets :(

    Also... where is the first order packs for BB-8, FOST is such a ridiculous farm, especially since you only get two possible yellow nodes till 85'ish where you open a third. WTB FOST pack.
  • @CG_Kozispoon
    Rey kit please?
    Thank you

    It makes a huge difference if you refresh all you can in that 2 day time period. I would recommend saving all the gems you can.

    No, it says its for Rey, Finn, and the Veteran Smugglers only.

    I hope they will do Mythic versions of all the other events since I can no longer participate in the Yoda/Palpatine event.

    Thank you for the Darkside Starter Bundle, despite the fact I am 85. 5 Dollars for 140 shards and 200 crystals is a great deal.

    And to echo another person above, can we please get a FOST pack? Even if its 40 shards or so for 5 bucks.

    It actually says in the update that mythic events are re done legendary events, not hero's journeys.

    Question is what legendary event are we getting that weekend? Mythic events take place on the weekend during the event, so what legendary event are we getting that week?
