Nihilus, Chirrut, ATF, Krennic, Gar and Holdo

Prev1345
Just curious, but why these characters of all the choices? Most players will already have DN, Chirrut and/or Krennic/ATF 7* from one or more of the past metas/raid teams. Gar is absolutely useless now. Holdo...well...er... she's not exactly very good, is she?

I'm not complaining about these bonus drops, but personally I'd rather take double drops especially with the daily hard node increase.

    All the complaining is going on in the Content Update [HF] 5/1/2018 Thread at the top of the discussions.

    If you wanted to make a list of the lowest ownage rate of useful characters across the whole player base, those would have made my top 10 (maybe not gar) of guesses as to what they are.

    It's not always about arena.

    I have seen ppl use Gar in Sith raid.
    I have him with a zeta - he’s not the best. I can say the same for Kren. I think both are good and work with certain teams but it’s probably not worth the time effort or money. But as an Empire guy I had to get them.

    Chirut is a great toon and will help with lstb. Dn is dope and holdo will do well with res.

    Isn't that the point, they are giving them out so there is less time, effort, and possibly money involved.

    Ok not to sound mean but your totally wrong about Gar. His lead skill is great in the 2nd phase of the Sith raid and especially his ship too. Most teams use his ship. So I have no idea why your calling him useless

    Haven’t 7* FAT or Gar yet. I’ll take whatever drops.
    But more likely than not, I think I’m going to get shards for those that I’ve already 7*.

    It's a common mistake that people make thinking everyone who plays is in the same position as they are.
    Jace - while I agree with 100% of your post, this part especially should be stickied, in bold and neon letters somewhere.

    Also - longer tenured players- at one time had a chance to farm toons that they like or thought would be good, or accidentally farmed someone that was bad but then get a rework later and became good.

    Obvious disclaimer- players can still do this.
    I’m referring more to players that are in a guild that want to compete and better their position in terms of tbs where you have required toons and factions.

    I just need to give up on the stuff that should be stickied in bold and neon. Let people complain while I just have fun playing the game.

    I have 3 of those bonus characters at 7* - bonus shard tokens! And of the other three, two I have no interest in farming right now - but those shards are also useful as I'll be further along when I decide to farm them.
    Is it better than double drops? Probably not, but I'll take bonus shards any day.

  • Not every player is a veteran player. I don't have DN, Gar, or Krennic, and I have almost no shards of ATF, Chirrut, and Holdo. So I'm happy with the bonus drops!!

    Holdo...well...er... she's not exactly very good, is she?

    She has an AoE that under Rey's leadership will land a lot of exposes and crack multiple existing exposes, and under Finn's leadership will be usable every time she goes. Her potency is low, but throw mods on her and it's fine enough. You're going to sneeze at an AoE daze that does damage (and lands exposes with Rey) on a stick? She has one of the highest combined hp and protection of any character in the game and a taunt. She can actively heal with one ability and passively heal with another.

    What do you consider "good," then?

    I wouldn’t trade this for double drops though which is what happened.
  • I’m thinking that maybe Holdo will get a capital ship(all a guess though), and maybe Gar is hinting towards his ship getting reworked? Again, just guessing.
    (PS idk why I’m so intent on ships

    The only one I don't have at 7* is Holdo. Would love to have her at 7*, but I doubt this event will do much to move me in that direction.

    I think for a lot of people, the character selection for these bonus drops is quite good. However, I guess it remains to be seen whether or not the frequency of the drops is going to be anything to write home about. My money is on "no." ;)

    I hope to be pleasantly surprised, though and hope dies last.

    I had the same thought, Kyno, plus 4/6 of them are "difficult" farms that require a lot of time/energy.

    That's my stance on it. I would be pleasantly surprised if these bonus shards shaved more than a day or two of farming (especially if the drop of either one of them is random).

    But that's not really a "nerf", as people often said during dobble drops : dobble 0 is still 0.

    I don't see why anyone would expect the drop rates to be any different.

    The one thing I'm most interested in seeing is which nodes will be getting which characters added to them.
