Gear farming takes too long.

Hello, and welcome to you new people. I have played SWGOH for many years now, and I thought I would give you this really helpful guide to gear pieces and set some of your expectations in terms of what to farm and roughly how long it will take to get what you need.

This is based on the current number of toons in game 176. The numbers here are rough estimates but I think it offers a tremendous insight into how much time your going to need to invest.

MK 5 A/KT Stun Guns Prototype - (required roughly 250 Per character) Total needed for game = 176 x 250 = 44,000
MK 3 Cabanti Sensor Array - (required roughly 300 Per character) Total needed for game = 176 x 300 = 52,800
MK 4 Zaltin Bacta Gel Salvage (required roughly 150 Per character) Total needed for game = 176 x 150 = 26,400
MK 8 Biotech Implant Prototype (required roughly 200 Per character) Total needed for game = 176 x 200 = 35,200
MK 3 Czerka Stun Cuff Salvage (required roughly 150 Per character) Total needed for game = 176 x 150 = 26,400

Average optimal Daily farm rate at level 85 (generously estimated) given you farm and play all available game modes.

MK 5 A/KT Stun Guns Prototype - 10 per day - 12 YEARS to acquire all you need
MK 3 Cabanti Sensor Array - 5 Per day - 24 YEARS to acquire all you need
MK 4 Zaltin Bacta Gel Salvage - 10 per day - 12 YEARS to acquire all you need
MK 8 Biotech Implant Prototype - 5 per day - 24 YEARS to acquire all you need
MK 3 Czerka Stun Cuff Salvage - 5 per day - 24 YEARS to acquire all you need

Obviously there are loads more gear pieces you need, I have not even touched on G13 yet and there are lots more that you will need before you even get to gear 8 and start needing the above! I am just giving you guys some stats on the most needed one’s so not to scare you. Also you don’t need to gear up all 176 toons. You only really need 145 odd. The other 30 are pretty useless so that should help the years fly past!

You can obviously buy these of course if you don’t have decades to spare. You can buy 50 of any of these for roughly £15 So for example MK 5 A/KT Stun Guns Prototype – COST would be £13,200 for all you need.

Total cost roughly to buy all of the above - £50,000, approx. - so much much less then most mortgages.

Happy gaming.

  • If anyone thinks i have over estimated. Just half it, as rough guide. Glad i could help
  • im not sure i get the point. Obviously no one will ever get every character maxed out. The point of the game is to choose the characters you want and build them up and then use your roster to battle some other persons roster who made different choices
  • I have to agree with sl84t, there's a slew of characters that you're not going to mess with. I've been playing this game for 3.5 years and have stayed relevant. It helps to be in a good guild. OP didn't even mention ships, those are another grind. Just work on your roster the way you want to, it's a game with no overall win condition, enjoy it.. or don't.

  • Not helpful at all and just misleading. This does not account for other sources of gear. Credit Shipments, Shard Store, Events, GA, Raids, TB, TW, Challenges (Carbanti), etc.

    This is in the new players section and yet everyone is still finding ways to be rude about it.

    Because it pretends to be advice to new players while not actually including any useful advice and is in reality just another complaint thread founded on the ridiculous notion that you are supposed to be able to fully gear every single character in the game.

    @Kyno @Fauztin your thoughts?

    My opinion is that this is misleading for new players.

    It’s... speculative, at best. Not correct or incorrect. It’s an opinion, to which he is entitled, and is sharing his views on gear farming strategies. It’s not truly misleading, but you won’t see me putting a sticky tag on it to make it the most prevelant source of information for new players.

    Everyone has an opinion.

    Considering the OP doesnt site any of the additional sources for any of that gear, I'm not sure how this is an accurate assessment of the "need", but maybe you can explain.
