New player question about special characters.

Special event characters like Revan, Malek, and General Skywalker.. if you are a new player to the game will you reasonably ever have a chance to get these characters.. or are we typically SOL for being late to the party?

  • It shouldn’t be too difficult, but it will take time.

    So unlike other games that start with M, this game is actually really forgiving to new players (in some ways). Legendaries usually run about every 2-3 months just depending on what is planned. There is a discord bot you can use to check what is coming up as well as the swgoh events website. They have a discord that is one of the most useful in the game and it is very well organized.

    You shouldn't have any issues obtaining a character that you want, but it typically will always amount to a few things for grinding out the requirements:
    1. Mods, having enough speed is key as well as the right sets and primary stats!
    2. Whether it is a 5s or 7s unlock, you need the required characted at the right rarity
    3. Gear levels. For older unlocks, G10 is usually the minimum with some G8s sprinkled in, for newer unlocks like Chewbacca, Padme, C3P0, you are going to want to be as close as you can to G12. It can be done with less, but it just really depends on your mods and what kind of wiggle room you have.
  • Secondly, from time to time, you will see some of the former gamechangers post guides like this. A lot of this information is created by the communnity so you have images (available on SWGOH Events discord) as well as videos like this for every legendary character that are created. Find one you like and check out some of their older content.
