My Star Wars Journey from Padawan to Jedi Master!

Prev13
A few people have asked for my Ally Code
Or to view my Roster on other threads.

I decided to make this thread so other threads don’t get derailed.
My Ally Code: 319-135-583

From my understanding the game doesn’t show when a person started playing the game.
(If the game does show when a person started please let me know where to find out)

I believe I started on Aug 27, 2023.
I should be on my 7th week so far.

I am currently following an Improvised Farming Path.
I found a Farming Guide I liked from a YouTube Player named Songeta.

However, the Farming Guide isn’t Songeta Newer Farming Guide.
Songeta made a Newer Farming Guide 3 months ago which I didn’t like due to many reasons.

The Songeta Guide I like is Older Farming Guide 9 months old.
However, I also have been having to Improvise a few changes to the Guide due to it being older.

    Thank you!

    Yeah, I want to be as accurate as I can be with my accounts starting/stopping dates.
    It will help me monitor my accounts progress.

    I followed your suggestion and my first achievements are dated as Aug 12, 2023.
    So I am actually on my 9th week so far.

    Sorry for any confusion!

    That's great @PlayerJ .... It looks like you are on a decent track with a good plan as well!

    Great job in buying the lightspeed bundles as well, I'd definitely have done it at your stage of the game if I had your interest......

    What you need to understand is that you are in a very young stage of the game... There are no "SuPeR SeKrEt CoUNTerz" at your base level and nothing that hasn't been picked through with a fine tooth comb prior to you arriving on the scene... Players at high levels do things a certain way because it is the tried and true method....

    If you think you found something unique or that "veteran players" aren't giving good advice, then question them as to why they gave that advice rather than making an assertion you know nothing about instead of making assertions that are based on game mechanics you don't understand...

    No 7 year player wants to help a fella that comes in and thinks he knows everything... At your stage of the game, you should be more open to advice as opposed to giving it...

    What are the reasons you don't like that farming guide

    The Songeta Farming Guide I didn’t like was Songeta Newer Guide which is a few months old.
    It is the below link:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lFYAx7w6v5s

    I wrote a 5 Page Essay to Songeta personally telling him why his Guide was bad for beginners.
    Songeta knows what I said.

    I can’t explain to you all the reasons I felt the Guide was bad in a short handed manner.
    The amount of information I covered would exceed the text limit of these forums.

    Even if I was to make multiple comments max limit covering all the information, I doubt anyone would even read it.
    So, The simplest answer I can give as to why I didn’t like Songeta newer Guide is the following:

    Songeta Newer Guide seems good on paper, but trying to execute the Guide in practice was extremely difficult.
    Borderline impossible for the average beginner!

    ————————————

    Again, I wrote a message to Songeta about it giving him Feedback.
    Songeta must have agreed with my points because he made an updated text recommendation in the comment section of the video.

    Than Songeta pinned the comment so Newer Players could see/read it!
    Songeta seems to be a reasonable, logical person.

    Also, I don’t have any Ill will towards Songeta.
    I enjoy watching his videos.

    However, I had several reasons on why the Guide wasn’t good which had nothing to do with Rex.
    It was other issues.

    Those are the things he is asking about.... Not the things you choose to write an essay over that you know nothing about....

    I like the Older Songeta Guide.
    It is a little out of date due to the game changing stuff, but I have been improvising.

    pzwuo6ugmem2.jpeg

    I finished Step 1 & 3.
    I had an easier time unlocking Palpatine + Yoda.

    I am struggling against Thrawn.
    I’m not sure why I’m struggling vs. Thrawn.

    Maybe, the game gave Thrawn event a buff.
    I don’t know.

    I used Hera, Zeb, Chopper, Ezra, & Kanan.
    I failed 4 times.

    However, I’m not really upset about it.
    I am going to try again when my Sabrina or Captian Rex gets 7 Star.

    The monsters in the Thrawn event do crazy damage if you don’t put stagger on them.
    Zeb doesn’t do a good job of putting stagger.
    So yeah - It’s a weird thing.

    I will use the below team for Step 4 (Unlocking R2D2)

    11r6m9hs0bqt.jpeg

    I’m not building Gideon or Tie Fighter right now.
    I think Vader & RG are better.

    I will use the below team for Step 5 (Unlocking CLS)

    ev2upet41c9k.jpeg

    Step 6 will be my tricky point.
    I will have to figure out what to do at Step 6.

    Steps 1 to 5 were already in motion prior to the Light Speed Bundles dropping.
    My long term plan was:
    A. Go after Executor as my 1st GL Capital Ship.
    B. Go after SEE has my 1st GL Character.

    My Teams from Step 1 to 5 do help push me into that direction very nicely.
    I am going to have to figure out a way to squeeze GL Rey into the mix.

    Very unfortunate that my 1st GL will be of lesser quality.
    I will have to make due till I can get my SEE up and running.

    Yeah, that seems to be my plan.

    It’s not a weird thing, or a buff to Thrawn - it’s a modding thing.

    Your Zeb is currently wearing 6 grey Health mods. You have given him potency primary on the cross mod, at least, but if you really want to land stagger you’ll need to have your potency much much higher than 40%.

    It wouldn’t hurt to upgrade his abilities to lv7 as well.

    My current progress!

    k8ndlwfpt5jt.jpeg

    Team 1 & Team 2 can 3 star the Final Event.
    It wasn’t bad at all.

    I was able to win with level 80 + gear 8.
    It takes some careful play, but it is beatable.

    np0aunrvx0wm.jpeg

    My Team 3 is stuck on Thrawn.
    I think I need to wait till my Rex is 7 stars.
  • Options
    The Waves leading up to the Boss were very easy.
    You can play the beginning fights on Auto.

    Wave 3 - I manually played the battle using only Basic Attacks.
    I wanted to make sure all my main moves were off cool down for Boss fight.

    This is what the Boss fight looks like.
    Thrawn + few of his minions move before my team.

    The below picture is what the fight looks like at start of my turn

    oztuwe0vg7ri.png

    You can see the game has 2 special buffs above the Death Troopers.
    Very Dangerous Buffs.

    4n4nex4tyb4b.jpeg

    I tried removing the Deadeye Buff with a hero who can remove enemy Buffs.
    It doesn’t work.

    It seems the Buff can only be removed if you do stagger.
    I had to add in both Sabrina & Zeb to do stagger.

    Sabrina can only do stagger to 1 Target, unless you put Zeta on her.
    I didn’t want to add a Zeta to Sabrina because I don’t use her a lot.

    Zeb can only do stagger to 1 Target as well.
    It can be very tricky.

    Thrawn will do a Fracture which will render 1 of your heroes unusable for several rounds.
    If he targets Sabrina or Zeb, it is usually game over.

    You need Chopper faster vs. Sabrina + Zeb.
    You need Chopper to remove Taunt from Storm Trooper.
    Than you need Sabrina to Stagger 1 Death Trooper.
    Than you need Zeb to Stagger 2 Death Trooper.
    Than you have to carefully rotate the Taunt between Kanan + Chopper.
    Than you want to put Hera back up plan on 1 of Taunting Tanks as they will usually get killed 1st.

    It’s not 100% win rate.
    It’s like 5% win rate.

    I failed so many times I lost count of how many retry’s I did.
    I did win in the end due to good RNG, but it is a strange one.

    js66hl2ncv1b.png

    My Heroes had the following:
    - Gear 8
    - Skills 7
    - Level 85

    I don’t know.
    Something about this event felt off.

    To me the battle is very deceptive, You go in and beat the waves on auto with out taking a scratch.
    You reach the Boss fight and they crush you.

    A few times I felt like my Gear should of been lvl 9 or 10, but I didn’t upgrade my Gears because lvl 8 was doing so well against the waves.

    Yeah, G8 is a challenge for sure.
    It is winnable, but it will be tough one.

    It is incredibly common for PvP events / missions to have a much harder final wave than the preceding waves. Nothing is off or deceptive about this. Well done on the unlock.

    Maybe, it has been “off” for years and no one bothered to mention it.

    I don’t know.
    I can only say how I felt about it.
  • Options
    Again. It’s not off. It’s how the events are designed.

    A very long post.

    What did your mods look like? This fight comes down to mods and strategy. You need lots of potency on Zeb, then use Ezra and Hera to frequently call Zeb to assist, using his basic to lock down the enemy team via stuns. You're also using Sabine (who is Sabrina? It's Sabine) and shouldn't be. The team, pre-Captain Rex, should be Hera, Ezra, Kanan, Chopper, and Zeb. I doubt you have Captain Rex at the level for the mission so no need to worry about him there.

    With the right team (the lineup I mentioned) and the right mods (you want everyone to be as fast as they can be, and you want Zeb to have a lot of potency) the event becomes much more manageable.

    My Auto correct likes to change Sabine to Sabrina.
    I am talking about Sabine.

    My MOD’s looked amazing.
    My Strategy was flawless.
    This is why I ended up winning.

    Ezra is definitely not the right hero to use on Final Stage.
    You need Sabine or Captain Rex on the team.

    Zeb only targets 1 hero with stagger.
    Than it goes on a cool down for a while.

    Also, Thrawn’s attack is random.
    Sometimes, Thrawn fractures Zeb which can also cause a person to lose due to Zeb being take out of fight to long.

    The stage has 2 death troopers.
    You want to stagger both of them ASAP.
    The longer they stay un-staggered the more damage they will do.
    This is what makes a Sabine or Captain Rex very good.

    It gives you a secondary Stagger option.
    It also helps enable Zeb to stun lock better.

    Kanan, Ezra, Hera, & Chopper don’t really do Debuffs to help Zeb stun lock.
    Zeb needs Daze, Stagger, etc on enemy to stun lock with basic.

    Sabine & C.Rex helps Zeb.
    This is why you want 1 of them paired up with Zeb.

    The team needs:
    Leader -> Hera
    Buff Remover to remove Storm Trooper Taunt -> Chopper or Ezra can do it
    AOE Stagger or 2 Staggers -> Zeb, C.Rex, or Sabine
    Taunter -> Kanan or Chopper

    The team I used was:
    - Hera
    - Chopper
    - Zeb
    - Sabine
    - Kanan

    You could remove Chopper for Ezra because Ezra can remove buffs on Storm Trooper.
    The problem is Chopper unique gives team healing + he can rotate taunt with Kanan.

    Ezra is great Character.
    I do think if a person upgraded Ezra gear high enough.

    He would probably overpower/ destroy the stage.
    I just didn’t want to gear my characters up so high because I am saving my gear for other heroes.

    Get the Merciless Massacre Zeta on Vader, it makes him OP
    Also, unless your guild is running krayt/ will run endor, you're not going to get the 40 aeromagnifiers to get piett and boba to r8, and razor crest will take quite a while to get to 7 stars.
    I would say to gear up your geos, get into a better guild (since you can join more guilds if you are ready for the wat mission on DS geo TB), and then farm exec

    Thank you for you comment.
    I would like to respond with few things.

    My current Zeta amount is 100 which you can see below.
    61c06n9uc4xs.jpeg

    I could increase Vaders Zeta skill, but I haven’t been in a rush to do so.
    I don’t use Darth Vader to beat anything of value at the moment so I decided to save my Zeta’s.

    I have 0 heroes with Zeta, but in theory I could have 5 hero with Zetas.
    The problem is I want these Zeta’s to be important.

    My focus is PVE.
    I want to establish very good PVE teams for Raids or Farming.
    I don’t know what teams are good for Raids or Farming do I have been saving till I figure it out.

    ———————————-

    The Guild I am in is a Beginner Guild.
    We have recently beat Sith Tri. Raid on Normal Mode.

    They are a great group of players and the leader even promoted me to an officer.
    I have no plans of changing teams at the moment.

    My plan was to buy Aeromagnifiers in shop with crystals.
    This is what a Guide told me to do as best alternative option.
    So that is probably my best plan.

    ——————————

    You are right about Razor Chest.
    It looks like it will be a very slow 7 star.

    Wed_Santa is correct.
    Captain Plasma only needs 10 Omega’s.

    Maybe, their are characters which use less?
    I don’t know.

    I never really payed attention to be honest.
    I saw the skill requiring Zeta materials and stopped.

    I have watched a lot of account reviews by Youtubers.
    I have seen a lot of players being roasted for misapplying Zetas.

    After seeing a lot of players getting roasted, I created a Big Brain strategy.
