F2P GL Progress - 2nd Batch

Replies

  • Got 3 GL now to work on SEE.

    Unless I get really lucky with sith raid, I won't have the gear until next year

    Lol, you got the 1st batch+see? I'll also do see right afterwards, but only if they boost him a bit.
  • I just managed to pass challenge tier 3 of Military Might thanks to JML requirements (CLS, 3PO, Han, Chewie, Chewpio). For those willing to go for Luke, those 4 are a good start.

  • How many crystals/$$ did that cost for 12 days progress? That's an impressive jump for a short period of time.

    Nice progress by the FPL GL farmers.
    I got GL Rey, then JKL...
    Now working on SLKR & slow farming Piett, Mon Mothma & Chewpio on the side whilst gearing up the SLKR required toons.
    I get the toons to G12, then G13 one by one. I hard farm the necessary relic materials on the side, then when they're all G13.
    I've got KRU, Kylo & FOST at G13, Viagra Han at G8, Lobster at G11, the rest at G12.
    I went for SLKR for 3 reasons .... it beats SEE, I'd wanna get it done at some point, I'd farmed to 7* all the toons (my Piett is 3*, and MM & Chewpio both 5*).
    I'm cracking on, and getting other toons/ships done with surplus resources... it's a long road, but it's achievable.

    That is probably the smart call and the mando team is likely to be alot more fun than SEE
  • Seeing ahnald's SEE get the win in 3v3 against bastila, wat and JML was good to see though

    If the next GL set are again worst than Rey and SLKR, then no thanks
    I can keep my SLKR in arena for the next 2 years i guess

    I had quite a large crystal stash anyway about 20k. And I get about 600 per day from fleet and squad arena. I've been buying Piett shards with crystals and doing 2 refreshes per day.

    I also had about 40k get1 saved up which I was saving for hermit yoda but decided to start buying g12 gear with it.

    Admittedly I did buy a couple of those autumn 5 bucks gear packs. I've spent about 30 bucks so not totally f2p but I certainly havnt whaled out!
  • I decided to not buy remaining 40 mon shards and not put on gear until mando things have some clarity. I can do both the mando thing and jml, but it might turn out to be a problem in terms of gear if the events needs are high and I had geared jml by the time.

    About 2 days away from starting my shards!!!
  • I changed my decision once again lol. Farming the thing, won't gear him until I'm done with mando things gear hoarding first.

    Lol I’m a rollercoaster of emotions!!!! Good stuff though!!

  • Haha yea, it's hard to get completed and just sit on it. At this rate I'll end up gearing him and absolutely miss the upcoming mando race.

  • Nice work, Maru! Those gold bases are always so satisfying to see.

  • Got 3 GL now to work on SEE.

    Unless I get really lucky with sith raid, I won't have the gear until next year

    or if anniversary gifts are generous, or with double drop etc.

    I went for JML first and done with that. Now working on SEE and more than halfway through. Hopefully to get it done before end of year if anniversary and yearend holidays gifts are generous enough.

  • Jealous of all the folks with 3 GLs.

    Still at one & won't finish SLKR till end of year. Would have sped things up a lot if I had gone SLKR first and had access to g12 gear, but whatevs.

    It's also true that both Resistance & FO were in terrible shape when I started those runs. My JML toons are in much better shape than that, so it should be a quicker quest.

    Empire, on the other hand, is also in terrible shape, but at least I'll have 2 relic toons which is 2 more than I had to start for the SLKR & GLR quests.
  • I'm also F2P going for a GL, but no GLs. I was saving up gear for SLKR, but had a very weak sequel trilogy roster so had quite a few toons to farm. When it became clear that some sort of Empire/Sith meta was coming, I pivoted to farming Empire. But since that "meta" toon ended up being SEE, I slowed down the Piett farm significantly. I also just finished up 330 shards on Piett today, but I haven't put down any gear for SEE since I don't really see any good value in him (my shard is 3 or so years old and heavily SLKR, so I would just struggle in arena more and more until getting crushed by the next meta).

    I don't feel like going back around to FO and chasing the meta this late, so I'll likely just hold on until the meta really changes. I've also been farming Mandalorian toons that are mostly wrapped up... so maybe that'll be a good investment. Or maybe fleet meta will change some day.

    Meanwhile, the hoard is growing.

    I feel like you came here just to flex LOL
  • SLKR is the only toon that lets you solo HSTR, which gets you the gear you need to relic requirements for the next meta. It's still worth it to chase SLKR this late.

    Of course, if you would prefer Crystals, since you have an SLKR-heavy arena shard, just pivot to JKL/JML & get a couple great toons who destroy SLKR.
  • Yeah, I mostly agree with the point about SLKR. Seems like CG released SEE specifically to stretch out SLKR's meta reign. It's just that the later into a meta it is, the more meta-chasing provides diminishing returns.

    JML isn't really an option for "new" 3ish year old accounts unless people went out of their way for a strong rebel focus (that's also why only 2 guys in my shard have JML). GL farms are just that much harder the newer an account is.
  • Also... maaaybe I'm flexing a bit. But it also shows how heavy the gear investment is for GLs, especially for players who have to gear toons from scratch and maybe even farm shards.

    This is probably enough for SEE, and definitely enough for SLKR, but JML is quite a bit more than this if you don't have an old school rebel roster already.
  • @dgree I don't think cg does meta states that calculatedly. A buff/fix can happen at any moment, I wouldn't drop the ball too early.
