For those who are struggling with the event, don't listen to the people that are telling you that you need to gear up Dengar (thankfully, because his gear is insane from G7 on).

I got 7* Chewie on BOTH accounts using just a G7 Dengar:

Main: G12 zBossk, G11 Boba, G11 IG-88, G11 Cad Bane, G7 Dengar
Alt: G12 zBossk, G12 Boba, G11 IG-88, G9 Greedo, G7 Dengar

Went about 25-30 tries WITHOUT the zeta on Bossk's lead, but I got it first try after the zeta.

Remember folks, Dengar is just there to keep Chewie from stealth, and doesn't really do much after that.

Mod Strategy:
-Make Bossk your fastest character, followed immediately by Boba. Cad/Greedo/IG-88 don't really matter, just make them fast but with Crit Dmg triangles, and offense crosses (if possible).
-Mod Dengar for flat health and protection. He just needs to survive Pulverize from Chewie.

Battle Strategy:
Pretty simple. You want to hope that Han hits Boba and they focus him down (thereby removing Stun for his first turn) or that Han hits anyone except Dengar and Bossk. Dengar HAS to survive. If they Stun Bossk, you'll probably have to restart. If they stun Boba but don't kill him, you'll probably have to restart.

Dengar MUST get critically hit by Chewie and get put into stealth. If he doesn't you'll have to restart.

Should only take a couple tries to get this RNG setup. After that, you want to use Bossk's taunt. Boba uses Execute on Chewie which should leave him without much protection (if any), followed immediately by Bossk's Hunting Party. Chewie should be dead (or near dead). Do NOT use IG-88's AoE. Instead use his basic. IG-88, Greedo, Cad, etc. (whoever is next) should be able to finish Chewie easily.

Next, focus Han and then Lando. With Bossk's taunt up and no Chewie, you really shouldn't have any issues from here.

NOTE: If you can't kill Chewie with Execute and Hunting Party, your mods suck or aren't set up right. I was able to take Chewie down with the above teams pretty easily. Cad makes this event even easier, as he can Stun Han and/or Lando to make their damage trivial.

  • Thank you so much @Dryff! I was pounding my head against a wall for over an hour, I literally could not kill a single enemy, and then after taking your advice I beat it within 5 minutes. You are a genius. Truly a prince among men. Everyone who is struggling with this event needs to read the original post

    Thanks @Mephisto_style ! This advice helped when I posted it in a couple other threads as well, so the more people it can help the better!
  • Yeah Dengar is important for the stealth aspect, but to say he doesn't do much after that isn't really true.

    His mine mayhem under Bossk lead is huge. It's like a full team heal.

    On my run I lost Bossk and Boba, but Dengar's AoE kept the other 3 up.

    Yeah, the video I watched on YouTube of Boosk Dengar zam greedom and Bob's had Dengar and Bona last men standing

    Well, my point of this thread and strategy was to complete it with a low gear Dengar (since his gear requirements are insane). Certainly, if you have him geared up already he can contribute :)
