Hi, I am new to this game but played a very similar game for a while.
Since you get the same amount of energy/experience for using energy and/or cantina energy which is better to use it for?
I haven't seen anyone mention anything about getting extra cantina energy but I would think at least a combination of both is good, no?
I would use energy to equip my main toons but would go guns out in getting all shards needed for say Talia. It wouldn't take very long if you do hard missions along with as many runs of her shard drop cantina mission to max her stars? If I relate to the other game I used to play, if we consider both games the same (which they almost are) it would be good to use quite a bit of gems just to refresh Cantina to do this.
If you're getting 200 crystals per day (arena, dailies, first time battles, etc.), which is quite doable for FTP, then buy 2 regular refills and one cantina refill. The cantina refill is as efficient in terms of EP as the third regular refill, and has other advantages. But if you're getting less than 200. Prioritize the normal refills.
I'm FTP also, except for $10 for dooku plus the week of crystals deal.
I do 3 per day, would like to do 4 if they had a gems per day subscription thing.
2. Canteena nodes do not require refresh to do them over and over. Just pick 1 hero from the canteena nodes and then just sim that node over and over.
3. As someone above suggested, refill the canteena once per day, and refill energy twice per day. If you have the extra crystals, then refill canteena until that refill costs 400.
For 120 energy you get 120 exp, about half the credits you get with Cantina and either gear you need or about 2.5 shards.
For 120 cantina energy you get 120 exp,double the credits, 5 shards + 2 shards from shipment (totaling 7 shards) and drops to upgrade skills.
I can't see it being even a close decision?
Are the energy and cantina costs of refreshing related in any way or are they seperate?
Like normal energy is 50/50/100/100/x/x/x
And cantina is 100/100/x/x/x
And both are seperate from each other right?
It doesn't do the cheapest one twice like regular energy.
L&D refills go 50; 50; 100; 100; 100; 200...
Not 100% sure I'm remembering how many L&D refills are 100 before going to 200 correctly.
That being said, the rewards for Cantina are more than twice as rare/important than L&D so depending on my daily crystal income I'm making sure first and foremost I can refill Cantina twice.

In an ideal world yo use 400 gems per day I think. Two cantina and two L&D
I just did a bit of math and it seems as though the impact of increasing star level decreases as the star level goes up.
For instance, the total stat increase difference between 2 and 3 is like 2.5 increase and between 3 and 4 seems to be like 2. Amount of shards needed go up and the reward is less. Kinda sucks.
Once I get a main squad my plan will change to go for a bit more diversity. Maybe only focus on 1/2 Heroes at a time to max out rather than 4 (considering there is potentially 4 non conflicting farming sources for shards).
