Mythic Event Discussion

Prev13
We've just announced our plans for replayable Legendary events, and we call them "Mythic Events". Please use this thread to discuss and leave feedback for the first one: Pieces and Plans Mythic Event.

Mythic Events!
With this update to Galaxy of Heroes we introduce our newest event type: Mythic Events. Frequently requested by players, a Mythic Event is a way to replay a previously completed Legendary Event! Mythic Events are max-level content that will only appear once you’ve completed the Legendary version first. Once the Legendary version is completed, the Mythic Event will unlock immediately and become available to play as long as it is still running. Here are the details:
  • Mythic Events share the same name and theme of their Legendary cousins, but have altered content. The first Mythic Event will be Pieces and Plans (BB-8). Future content updates will add new Mythic Events over time.
  • Mythic Events will run over the weekend during which the Legendary is live. So if you have completed the Legendary BB8 Event Pieces and Plans you will see the Pieces and Plans Mythic Event on this coming weekend of December 9th. If you haven’t yet unlocked BB-8, but manage to do so before the end of the weekend, you will still be eligible to participate in the Mythic version.

There are 3 tiers in each Mythic Event:
  • Tier 1 Is the same content as the final tier of the Legendary Event, including all cutscenes, dialog, and squad requirements. As a bonus, once this tier has been completed with a 3-Star victory, it can be simmed (no more waiting through cutscenes and dialog if you do not want to!).
  • Tier 2 Is the same battle as Tier 1, but removes all cutscenes, dialog, and squad requirements. Ever wanted to see how the Empire would fare fighting the Resistance in Pieces and Plans? Then the 2nd tier of Mythic Events is for you!
  • Tier 3 “Flips the script” and tasks you with forming a squad based using the Event’s Legendary character and their allies to fight the faction you used to unlock them. For Pieces and Plans, this means forming a squad of Resistance with BB-8 included and battling the First Order in the ruins of Maz’s castle. Mythic Event 3rd tiers are extremely challenging, and gear 11+ and powerful mods are highly recommended.

Each Tier will provide mods as rewards. The mods will be guaranteed 5-dot, and B-A Rarity (Purple – Gold). Mods will match the sets from mod challenge requirements which are thematically tied to the event. In the case of Pieces and Plans, which uses Resistance and First Order, the mod sets will be Speed and Offense.
Additionally, to reward the extreme challenge of Tier 3, limited Gear 12 equipment salvage will be earned. We hope you enjoy the new Mythic Events!

  • Good morning! Will CLS return as a recurring event this month?
  • @CG_CapGaSP
    Thank you very much for the Mythic Events. Looking forward to trying out the BB8 Mythic Event.
    Can I infer from your post that Mythic Events currently only apply to Legendary Events and is not applicable to Hero's Journey Events?
  • Don't even try. He won't answer, because EA hasn't gave CG command yet :D
  • Heyah there! When CLS event will return to our galaxy?

    For now, only Legendary events will get a Mythic version. I want the word Mythic to conjure the feeling of "familiar, but different" in the player base so that we can possibly do other "Mythic" things in the future. But as for right now the focus is on Legendary events getting the treatment.

    I understand that you can't comment on events that are not on the calender but can you confirm if CLS event qualifies as recurring.

    Highly unlikely, and it has already been confirmed that the mythic events are only applicable to Legendary events at this time, NOT Heroic Journey style events.
  • Mythic Events == super happy fun ball time

    Action counts are not shared in Mythic events. Each tier is independent, and only T3 can be refreshed.

    So to clarify and put it all in the same post, the different event types we have are:

    - Regular: Credit Heist and Droid Smuggling
    - Omega: Omega mat reward
    - Assault Battles: 8-wave events
    - Marquee Events: New character releases
    - Legendary: Yoda, Emp, R2, BB8, Thrawn
    - Mythic: legendary rerun and bonus tiers
    - Ships: including Chimaera (or legendary?)
    - Heroic: the Ewok AT-ST Fight
    - Hero’s Journey: CLS and RJT

    *Specials: like Chopper every day for a month, or the Jawa/Droid one a while back

    Please give us a mythic Rancor, the poor heroic guy is having a hard time nowadays. Make it immune to TM manipulation and that would be fine.
  • Good job with the new mythic events. It’s challenging but doable. Very similar to the prelude to TW battles which I liked a lot for its challenge and rewards.
  • It would have been nice if tier 2 was more difficult - With the whole roster at our disposal there wasn’t much challenge to this.

    At least some events should be ones that maxed out players can’t beat with auto and mythic seems like a good place for this.

    Now THAT’S an idea!

  • So, even tho I've played for over a year and a half, I miss the content because FO nodes drops are horrid and I didnt spend to get my FO up, once again, giving those who have more and giving an advantage and leaving those without, innthe dog house, its like the 20 zetas on the 2 years, not everyone got them, great work cg, greatbway to treat your players, waiting for the event that only whales can get into
  • Great event! I appreciate how the three tiers have a lot of variety to keep this event from being a grab characters and sim type event.
  • I put BB8 zeta "Roll with the punches" and pray for RGN... BB8 counter attack and RT assist then all settle... I all trash mob G8 and R2 G12 Arena mod
  • Not sure which of the two trending threads is the "official" Mythic Event discussion so I'll quote myself here for completeness:

    I really liked this event and here's why:

    It is challenging in a way that highlights the strengths of the Resistance synergies. Sure the loaded TM is a bit gimmicky. And the FO TM gains are unrealistic. But we already know that event characters and teams are tweaked. CG has said main characters, like Thrawn, in the legendary events start with reduced cooldowns. This isn't much different.

    So you face a barrage at the outset and an enemy that gains TM very fast. Resistance is great at controlling a battle through TM manipulation. So if you survive the first 20 seconds you have to use the very thing the team is good at to succeed.

    And what about that initial barrage? We'll, the event does suggest G11 toons. That seems to be focused on surviving until you can get a turn. If you can do that, which is possible with a little luck at G9 or G10, you can use the mechanic introduced by this event, BB-8's Illuminated Destiny, to rebuild protection and survivability.

    It's been suggested that increasing tenacity on the FO team would have been a better way to make this event challenging and I disagree because without the exposes it's just a slug fest. Why even use Resistance at that point? It would be even more RNG dependant. Poe doesn't expose anyone on his first turn? Retreat.

    For anyone looking for strategy ideas:
    I completed tier 3 with a very mediocre, mostly G9/G10, team on the 4th or 5th try.

    G9 zFinn (L)
    G12 R2, 260 speed - use smoke screen ASAP to focus attacks on R2
    G10 Poe
    G10 Trooper
    G8 BB-8

    R2 is there to take a beating until Poe can go. And his stun is incredibly helpful too. Between him and Finn you can potentially stun everyone. And finally, his AoE Improvise can load the team with TM in a hurry if two or three exposes are present. Other than that it's the typical Resistance strategy.

    Thanks for reading!
