I am currently farming and gearing all over the place, trying to get ready for GAS.
I currently have the following ships at 7*:
The Umbaran fighter (don't remember the pilot)
As such I meet the requirements for the event (JKA +3 GR ships), but is it realistic to do it with the above?
I also have the rest of the GR ships at 7* (Plo Koon, JC and Clone Sergeant) - but I would rather not spend gear on those unless needed...!
Oh and I run with the Negotiator!
