Just go ahead and add some more hard nodes.
Every single character should be farmable; if not cantina or shipments, then hard node shards.
At an average of one shard per three attempts, it would take 330 days to seven star a character with one hard node with no resheshes. Two hard nodes brings it down to 5 and a half months.
It would also keep the mid and light spenders more interested. If I could have goals to fill in my shard completion gaps, that's great. Right now it's RNG or nothing for too many toons.
