Advice For a New Player

Replies

  • Thanks @Desertfox1024 for all of the advice! I will probably get thrawn and palpatine by the end of this month. Then, like you said, I will farm Phoenix and the toons needed for Revan. Thanks! I think I am set!
  • I just unlocked ships at level 60, and it looks like Ahsoka's ship is a really easy farm through fleet arena tokens. But, I just can't get through the Fleet battles. How do I progress through ships?
  • Hmm. Do you mind sending out your ally code or swgoh.gg link so that we can take a look at your current roster?
  • ok. I just saw the refresh of the fleet arena store and realized that I could farm the ghost and phantom. I thought that they could only farmed through achievements, before, so that was pretty cool to see.

    Training, promoting, Gearing and modding you pilots also make their ships stronger.

    Just a piece of advice:
    Don't waste too many resources on characters which you don't actually use or don't plan to use in the near future. Focus on the characters you (plan to) use.

    F.ex. don't waste your resources on the Endurance. Home One and Executrix are stronger capital ships.

    Farm every ship and pilot available from the GW shop (unless you still need strong characters from there). Buy the rare ships (f.ex. Vader's Tie) whenever it appears in the store. ****'s X-wing is an OK tank ship. Farming the bountyhunters pilots will also help you complete higher tiers of credit heists.

    I'll repeat this:
    For ships, aim for the following: Ackbar lead; Ghost, Vader, Biggs starting; Phantom, Ahsoka and Ebon Hawk reinforce. When you get Chimera; replace Ackbar with it; when you get Hound's Tooth, put him on starting and let Biggs reinforce.
    Just don't waste resources on anyone else except Executrix, you need that capital ship for the zeta challenge.
    You might want to farm the new Rebel Y-Wing instead of HT, it may work better with your fleet.
    Vader and Ebon Hawk are longer farms (especially Vader, make sure that you ALWAYS have enough currency saved buy his shards, both character and ship, when they pop up in ship store, they're just so rare). The other four are ships you can get right away. Use Ahsoka in starting lineup before you get Vader. Hope it helps.
  • After that you might want to farm Bistan's U-Wing as well; and go the CLS route for characters; when you finish Revan, Yoda, Thrawn and Palp and everythng else listed in my first post. I have a feeling that the Rebels might be coming back to the meta.
  • got it. I'm probably not going to get the Y-Wing right now, i have only 17 shards. I will wait until it becomes farmable. I will focus on vader's ship, Ghost, phantom, ahsoka's ship, and Biggs. What would be a good position in fleet arena to aim for until I get the above ships?

  • Do I still have a chance to get the Y-wing with 21/80 shards?

    Those are solid ships. You should farm a few more, though. To gain access to the zeta ability material challenge you will need 5 non-capital Dark Side ships at 4* or higher and 8 non-capital ships of any alignment at 5* or higher. That's one of the major milestones.

    Reaching top-500 will earn your 200 additional fleet currency. Top-200 will earn you another 200 fleet currency. Top-50 will add 50 crystals. Check the "prizes" tab when in the fleet arena window.
  • For dark side, I will get JRU, geonosians, imperial tie fighter, and vader's ship. I don't think I can get higher in fleet arena until I get some ships. Thanks! Also, do you know when the y-wing becomes farmable after this galactic chase? I've seen some youtube videos about it and it looks really good

    Hang on a moment you need 5 dark side ships to unlock 5*Tarkin, but are those required for the challenge itself? I forgot

    This is what you need to get Y-Wing unocked: 3x50 crystal refresh, farm all hard nodes daily; for 5 days. Then you'll likely get at least 60-70 and you can get the rest by packs if you need it. As for when will it be farmable, probably three months? No one can say for sure

    Does this mean you can buy multiple of those packs that give 5-330
    y-wing blueprints? If that is the case then I am definitely going to get the y-wing

    I haven't bought any packs with crystals which is why I am asking

    Executrix is required at 5* for the lower of the two tiers that reward zeta ability mats.

    The drop rate is awful, though. (usually you get 7) So get what you can from fleet battles, then the packs for cleanup.

    You can use any 5 star ships you want in the zeta mat challenge. I thinking the challenge to get 5 star executrix is harder than the materials challenge(same with home one and endurance) since your restricted to dark side ships. I would focus on getting the executrix to 6 stars, since that gets you the final ability mats challenge for ship omegas. You don't need them now, but when you get there, you will need a lot of them.

    Yes! I managed to get it by spending only 800 crystals - 0 on the first day, 150 each for the next 3 days, and 350 today. Y-wing is the first ship I have that isn't given to you for free. Once I upgrade it, I hope it can really help me through fleet battles and fleet arena. I know that 800 crystals sounds impossible but I had some really good luck. I may be wrong about that, but I know that I didn't spend over 1250 crystals.

    That's great :wink: Hope the shield disruption helps in your fleet!

    And the 5 star challenges take around level 80, 5 star ships; pilot 5-6 star, gear 8, with BH or Geo fleets. Anyone tried that with empire or FO?
  • Are there prerequisites for omega battles?

    3* chars, level 30.
  • Are there prerequisites for omega battles?

    3* chars, level 30.

    That's the first, which grants credits.
    For the second node, which grants ability mats,you need to get to level 50.
    For the final node, which grants a single omega, you need to get to level 75
  • I am really low on ships and they all kind of suck... They are basically just the ones you get from the fleet commander events, so how would I get some ships by the time I unlock ships? I am thinking about having Bastila, Ezra, Kanan, old ben and jolee for yoda.

    @DARTHRUSH1211 bastilla, ezra, kanan, mace, ahsoka for 6 star yoda. swap mace with anakin for 7* yoda.
    just forget about thrawn or palpatine. empire is useless in the end game. in my top 200 arena there's no empire team only padme, darth revan, jkr, grievous, and one general skywalker. one empire team with vader, tarkin, thrawn, bastilla fallen, palpatine with 157k power all relic7 easily beaten by padme team with 30k less power.

    forget both revans. all the toons in both revans only kenobi that can be used for ships. and if you check meta report, darth revan teams are below rey and GAS.

    max out ackbar and then get kenobi negotiator after that.

    in my opinion for a long run get 4 teams. padme team, grievous team, shaak ti team and geonosians. these 4 teams pretty much can beat any other teams except GAS or galactic legends. only padme and yoda need 5 toons to get 1. the rest can be farmed. these 4 teams got pretty strong ships, ahsoka, anakin, fives, rex, kenobi, 3 geos

    then get ewoks for c3po, assaj and you can get general skywalker, add bossk and hounds tooth for ships arena.

    I noticed that you began playing your Phoenix Squad in arena. I would recommend moving your best and fastest mods to your arena team. You will have far better success.

    https://swgoh.gg/p/974353385/mods/?stat1_5=1

    Furthermore, you should mod Ezra for damage output, your tanks with defensive stats and Zeb with a bit of potency to better land debuffs.

    As soon as you've taken Zeb to 7* you can use your GW currency to buy ships and/or pilots like Biggs and Cad Babe. Biggs' ship is great for tanking and Cad Bane will help you in credit heists as well.

    @Skies439 I was thinking about making a sort of OT team. If I do get 7 star palps and thrawn, by that point I will probably have 7 star vader, and it will be pretty easy to get tarkin to 7 stars plus another empire toon. Now I can get R2D2 then CLS. Would this be a path you recommend? I have seen youtube videos sayong that thrawn is a good character, but as you said empire will be useless. I might unlock them because I am really close to it. All of phoenix except for chopper is at 5 star. Plus, my dark side teams are extremely weak. I do that I will switch to your advice for Yoda. One team I really would want to get is a padme team, so would you recommend farming seps after Yoda? Or as a first priority? Or should I go for CLS? Lots of options. Thanks!
