I've just started a new account and i'm currently lvl 47 ().
I'm following the Phoenix path without wasting energy on other toons and i'm getting good feedbacks in GW (completed 9/9) and arena (placing in top 1000 for the rewards). I'm at the moment where I have to choose between focusing on the development of my Phoenix squad (above gear 6-7) OR farming another team (maybe separatists).
There's another thing that I can't properly figure out: as far as I understand, I need at least 1 lightside team and 1 darkside team to 3-star the nodes for farming all the required chars. This means that I still need to level up, rank up and gear up toons from both sides for those two teams?
I don't want to waste energy on hard battles (e.g. to farm Sabine), if not needed, so I'd like to pick a route as soon as possible since I have to farm at least 5 hard battles per day for the daily reward.
I would also like to reach the fleet arena (lvl 60) with a team of good pilots ready to fight in their ships and the choice is between Phoenix Ships + Biggs + ??? or Geo's ships + ???.
Any suggestion on which path to take?
PS: please don't suggest taking the route you enjoy the most, i'm looking for the most efficient one, in the long run, to get the best toons for the arena.
