Man, have I become active on here. I feel like a mid-game crisis complements my current mid-life crisis well enough, though. What direction do I go, the question I've asked myself countless times in every facet of life, lately?
I appreciate all the helpful suggestions I've been receiving in a couple of my other threads. This one has a different slant on it. I'm looking to the future now. This was touched on a bit in my arena team thread, but I'm going to get a little more specific to heroes here. I just obtained CLS, had been stockpiling gear for higher levels, only to realize I've hit a G7 bottleneck, of all things, so am not racing on him anymore, I'm giving some of the saved gear to Thrawn since it's going to be a minute now, for CLS. But looking forward, we have a lot of farming of toons I have no real interest in farming to obtain more useful characters, and I wonder where to direct my focus, as I'm not end game enough to have the luxury of spreading the wealth all over. Or is there simply a logical progression (first you get CLS, then JTR, then Revan, then...)? When I started all this months ago, it was simple. I would get CLS, then JTR. Now we have Revan, and all this talk of Jedi Luke, and I'm a bit unsure of next steps.
So, here it is.... do I go for Revan next? Is JTR still worth getting (of course she's badass, but at this point, should I be prioritizing her over other heroes)? Or do I plan for the future meta toon Jedi Luke we all seem to think is on the horizon (or somewhere out there anyway) by working on my BHs and Ewoks to get the Wookie and C3PO and hope it pays off? I'm currently 7*ing my last few Phoenix to top off Thrawn, but am sort of open to new directions beyond that. I was advised, previously, which is not bad advice regarding my Arena team, to keep building nightmare, which means I'd be focusing on Nihilus next to sub in at the right star and gear level, and then... I don't know.... not sure I'm ready to jump guilds any time soon, I still have to build some better STR teams before I'd probably be considered to join a HSTR guild, but Traya would be a long play to add. In the meantime, on that, though, I'd have to build my NS team, and some other toons, which would be its own direction as that's a lot of resources to commit (my NS is basically, on average, 3* lvl 50, though I have unlocked all the big ones, MT, Ventress, Daka, zombie, and could play with Talia or spirit right now).
Thanks for all the help. I know some of you have a much broader perspective of the game, being I've only played a bit over a year, and can see overarching trends better than myself, as well as having a better perspective on the usefulness of certain toons over others. I also don't know if raids should be a bigger focus for me, or if continuing to focus on major toons, or focusing on arena rank, is the way to go. There are so many pieces to the game, it gets to be hard to prioritize at times, especially mid game, when you start to see all the doors laid out before you, and have to choose one or two to open.
