Phoenix - hybrid? Improvements?

Phoenix is a useful beginner team but even at high gear + zetas can get stomped in Arena, TWar and GAC (e.g. by Wampa)

—> Is there a lineup that uses a Phoenix “core” but can defend against the usual counters?
(A bit like FOrder & Barriss)

  • My, probably useless, suggestion:
    zHera, zKanan, zZeb + Chirrut & Baze?
  • Phoenix squad was specifically designed to work together and balanced to be a beginner squad. You can plug'nplay some Phoenix toons in other Rebel/Jedi squads but plugging other Rebels into Phoenix doesn't really work so well because they don't benefit from Hera's lead and the Phoenix unique sharing.

    Chaze is probably about as good of a plug-in as you'll find but you can most likely get better use from them under a different Rebel lead.

    Most people just bench Phoenix as they gain GP and power up other squads.
  • Benching phoenix is the go to. Sucks if you invested more then g8 into them minus ezra. Maybe one day they will add old rex or something to make them better
  • You could try something like Hera/Kanan/Ezra/Chop/Wat. Wat makes most teams better.

    Just leave them behind. Sinking a bunch of zetas into them might get you a tiny bit more mileage, but they'll still get absolutely stomped by the vast majority of teams. The resources are just better spent elsewhere. Plus you can still use a few of them (Ezra, Sabine, Chopper, possibly Kanan or Zeb) on Rebel, Jedi or Droid teams. I've heard Chopper actually works decently with JTR also, though I've never tried it myself.

    I’ve been meaning to take Chopper, Sabine and Zeb up to G11 for AGES for their ships.... G11 gets the most “value” for ships.
    Ezra, Kanan i had geared up during Bastila lead era.

    Ya, I enjoy wiping out fleets offensively in TW, so my backup fleets I want to make a bit beefier.

    Yes, but that wasn't the question. He wanted to know about making Phoenix better, not other teams. I didn't say it was practical.

    I guess I prefer practical answers. Sometimes the practical answer is "no."
