Padmé tier 5 is stupid hard

    I couldn't beat tier 5 until I bumped up GG (2 zetas) and Asaj (2 zetas) to gear 12.5 and slice all their mods. Then I was able to beat tiers 5 and 6 and bump up Dooku to gear 12. My weak links are gear 9 B2 and IG100. Keep stunning Padme and Kenobi until Padme goes down, then focus Guardian and then the other Jedi. If you can, try to shock Kenobi or give him buff immunity so that he doesn't taunt, but remember he can cleanse. I don't think I'll be able to beat tier 7 without better gear on my droids.

    Posting here first as I just (finally) unlocked Tier 5 Padme after being bitter last yesterday... After much frustration, I added the leadership Zeta to my G12 zAsajj and made her lead. That worked with the sh'mix of Gear 9-10 Seps - G10 Dooku, G10 zGrievous, and G9 B2, and my poor Gear 8 Sun Fac.

    Keep Anakin and Kenobi stunned as much as possible, and go after Padme with grevious and Asajj. Save AoE for when Kenobi has taunt up so you can keep whittling down Padme. Killing Anakin is ok, as he just feeds Asajj.

    3 tips:
    - Asajj's leader zeta gives her tons of extra turns and her lifesteal brings her back to full. If Anakin lands healing immunity, you're done.
    - Dooku's 100% stun Jedi is invaluable in the Tier 5 battle.
    - hope to heck and back that Greivous' free turns come when Kenobi does not have taunt and you can skitter Padme
    - kill order, Padme, Anakin, Anakin (resurrected), Fishlee Bindo, Kenobi

    Don't confuse kill order with not doing attacks on any other toons. You have to control Anakin esp. with stuns.

    Wishing I could've done this without the "wasted" zeta (yes I know Asajj is good elsewhere, but she is the only NS I have geared. I'll use her in 3v3 on defence with my gear 8 Daka and Tanya)

    Did T5 with maxed ventress and Gear 10grevious, no one else had and gear. Only have 57* sepratests total.
  • I managed to unlock her after about 200 attempts with a Gear 9 team, unremarkable mods, and only one zeta (on GG lead ability - not sure if this is actually necessary or not).

    Line-Up, Gear and Purpose:

    ajsx29ho4e3n.jpg

    GG(z)(L) - G9+1
    • "Marks" the Droideka so your team can avoid all damage
    • Stuns

    Asaj - G11+1
    • Removes enemy debuffs (v.useful to remove GK taunt)
    • Stuns

    Dooku - G9+1
    • Stuns
    • Ability Blocks
    • Shocks (cannot gain buffs)

    B2 - G9+0
    • Immunity Block
    • Immunity Block
    • Immunity Block
    • Target Lock
    • Immunity Block

    Droideka - G9+1
    • Hides behind his shields
    • Does crazy high damage

    Mods: Nothing too special.. mostly blue and purple
    • GG : Health and Speed above all else
    • B2 : Potency and Speed (once I got his Potency north of 80% things got a lot easier!)
    • Droideka : Offence, Protection - and AVOID SPEED at all costs - he has 97 speed!

    The Droideka is a special case.
    1. he can't critically hit - so Offence is vital (don't bother with Crit Chance OR Crit Dmg)
    2. The more "charges" he gets (by the enemy taking turns before he goes) the more damage he does
    3. The greater the difference between his speed and his target - the more damage he does!

    For reasons (2) and (3) above .. low speed is the killer (literally! He can 2-shot Padme!)

    Kill order:
    1. Padme (to stop protection up)
    2. Anakin (to stop him one-shotting my team)
    3. Healer (to stop revives)
    4. GK (FTW!)

    Strategy:
    There a number of stars which need to align for this to work .. and this took a LOT of attempts to make it happen ...
    1. Droideka needs to be Marked by GG - if this doesn't happen (and/or you lose toons in the first few turns) then just quit and start again.
    2. Go "shields up" with the Droideka - he is now the only target, completely immune to damage, and stacking "charge" for high damage shots
    3. B2 needs to apply Buff Immunity on BOTH Padme and GK (hence the high potency) - This stops Padme getting protection up, and stops GK from taunting. Ideally you should also get Healing Immunity on Padme to stop the healer from restoring her health - if GK is taunting when your Droideka turn comes around, just quit and start again!
    4. Keep Padme stunned and/or ability blocked (Asaj / Dooku) - otherwise she will remove debuffs and heal
    5. Once Padme is dead - stun / ability block Anakin - if the Healer revives Anakin kill him immediately or he will one-shot your team

    This took an AWFUL lot of attempts .. I really lost count.

    The Ideal Start

    I CAN HAS WINZ!

    This seems like good advice, except they seem to pretend buff immunity isn't there even when the icon is there and half the time it goes away far too fast.

    Hey everyone, those of you who’ve lost hope thinking it’s only possible with the new separatist droids, well I have good news for you! I beat it with Grievous, magnagaurd, b2, asajj, and poggle, yes, poggle! And only gear 8 on asajj. I beat tier 7 with that team. Now, I did have three zetas on my droids, sonthat helped a lot, but it was like the C3PO event, you almost need chirpa's lead to be zeta’d to beat the event.

    I appreciate the optimism, but can you please post some pics or swgoh.gg link to your account so we can see how you modded, etc.

    @jonnydeathstar sure, here you go!

    All I'm gonna say is tier 6 is a walk in the park after tier 5, difficulty is definately gated for unlock

    No, as soon as you meet the star requirement and have your chars at g8 (I think g9 was max gear back in Mar 2016 when the GMY event launched) you're entitled to own the latest legendary char.
    Oh and it should be doable by pressing the auto button, anything else would be unfair! :)

    I did T5 with this. So it’s entirely possible to do without new droids or without Ventress/B2 to clear buffs.

    Strategy was simple: Poggle’s special to put Offense Up on Spy, use Spy’s special when Amidala had 5 stacks of Protection Up, explode her into a fine mist. Chip away at Kenobi (this team can’t deal with his taunts) then repeat the Poggle-Spy love on fishface so you don’t have to deal with his dumb resses.

    This thread should be deleted: tier 5 of padme event is not stupid hard, it is OK

    Tier 7 is hard but not tier 5

    I think this thread was created 5 min only after event started or something, so it is completely wrong. Please close it and create new one about tier 7.
    Or just rename the title with « tier 7 » instead of « tier 5 »

    We can only beat this with all separatist droids gear 12 full zetas
    This event is for whales only.

    They should write in requirements « whales only »

    Can you just log out and forget your PW?

    It took me many attempts but eventually I cleared t5 running dooku lead with this squad. Assaj was g12, dooku g11, grievous and b2 g9 and sun fac g8. B2 was the real MVP's if you can keep him alive long enough

    Dont tell players they need 5 stars around level 10, but actually require 7 stars with perfect mods and g11. I guess so long as they keep the whales happy, they dont care how unfun the game is becoming.
  • I beat T5 with 220 speed Asajj G12 and she had 3148 Damage...the rest of my squad was garbage. Dooku G9, GG was G7, Battle Droid was G8 but missing the last two tiers of all attacks and abilities so 9700 power, and last and least was Magna at G7 missing abilities and at 6700 power. It is all about Asajj. She is the lead, kill Padme first, she can’t be revived. Kill Anakin next. I had to kill 3 times due to revive. Kill fake Jolee reviver next and GK last. Took me 12 tries, but I got her.
    Sorry this is after event is over, but maybe it will help some the next time around.

    You couldn't do T6 with that team?
