  • Boba Fett's contract description has been updated to take a bonus turn instead of gain 100% Turn Meter.

  • Garazeb "Zeb" Orrelios will now properly count Cycle of Pain and Cycle of Suffering correctly as a debuff in Phase 2 of the Sith Triumvirate Raid.
  • Jedi Temple Guard now has the Galactic Republic tag.
  • The ability description for each tier of Greedo's "If at First You Don't Succeed" now has the phrase "(no cap)" for clarification on the number of times he can trigger a bonus turn with his Unique.

  • Anyone have luck on the last tier for Nest?

    I have Boba Fett, Zam Wesell, IG-88, Dengar, Greedo and Cad Bane gear 12 with good mods and zetas. Can’t beat it. My other bounty hunters are weak sauce.

    I win with ZBoosk g12, Boba g12, Cad Bane g11, Zam g9, Dengar g8.
    ZBoosk helps but it's not required.

    You can use Zam leader(a lot of TD) or also Boba

    You have to remove normal protection from Nest and put on her a lot of termal detonators with Zam and Dengar , 5 with his special "Mini-Mine Mayhem", then just wait that Nest takes turn.
    At this point she kills herself or you can kill her with Zam basic.

    (Don't remove TD using Zam's basic if Nest has bonus protection)

    Good luck!
  • Thanks!! I’ll give that a try. I had 8 TD on Nest and popped them but nothing happened. She also had extra protection though.
  • Yeah thermal detonators won it for me.
    I used
    Jango lead
    Embo
    Bossk
    Boba
    Dengar.

    Embo was useless and but Jango helped with surviving from the bounty hunter resolve buff from his payout.
    I'd say other lineups are more efficient but get rid of the protection and stack thermal detonators seems to be the best strat

    Hi guys!!

    Im just here to try and drum up support and possibly badger the devs into reinstating the old wookie tag.

    As I see it with the new Chewie we will have more wookies than tusken raiders and as many as jawas.

    "But how many more wookies can they add to swgoh?"

    Well the obvious answer is Hanharr from kotor 2. Followed by General Tarffuls, who in my opinion would make an excellent wookie lead to promote synergy. If we really wantted to we could probably do three generic wookies in the form of Wookie Berserker (ala the unit from galactic battlegrounds and rots), a Wookie Gunship pilot, and even a Wookie Miner/Slave unit if youre uninterested in Wookie infantry. Not like the battle of kayshyyyk wouldnt make a stupendous territory battle, cause it would!!

    Expanding on that Black Krrstan (from Dr Aphras crew) seems a very obvious choice and forgive me (or dont ;) ) I kinda expect her and friends before we see Revan.

    Speaking of Revan, the Old Republic MMO is a completely untapped potential for our mobile game. And the Shadows of Revan expansions features my favorite wookie of all time Jakarro. Not to mention Bowdarr the smuggler companion.

    Since C3P0 didnt appear in Solo but Anthony Daniels did ,as you guessed it a wookie, that also seems like a relevant choice. And i wouldnt growse about a 5th chewie carrying C3P0.

    Need some jedi wookie in the mix too? Well we have dear sweet Gungi that we can use from TCW seeing as how its unlikely wed see Lowbacca, though i think tapping into some old EU characters like Kyle Kattarn, Lowbacca, the Solo Twins, and the Horns would easily prolong our games life especially with Bob Igors announcement that Star Wars is gonna need to slow down.

    Returning to cannon you even have Wullffwarro from Rebels that could easily be utilized.

    But ill stop there instead of entering novel territory with the wookie liberation from the aftermath series.

    TLDR
    Theres at least a dozen other wookies that could be added to the game and I for one would love to see them all!! So lets have the tag back and let the fur fly!!

    Are there other wookies youd like to see in game? And if anyone wants to scheme up kits for those listed id love to see umm!!
  • Also from the first KoToR we could have Chuundar and Freyyr, and maybe Bacca.

    Ohhh Chuundar would be a really cool Dark Side addition and Chewie's great great great (keeps going with great) grandaddy would be an excellent legendary wookie event!!!!
  • Immediate takeaway: easily farmable old republic characters. Much appreciated, thanks CG.
  • Do the Sith Raid changes affect currently running raids or do we have to abandon/finish the current raid to see the reward and health pool changes?
  • Great update, a legendary, easyish farm locations, new ship and finally paper zombie has been fixed. Happy days are here!
  • I didn’t expect T3, Mission, and Zaalbar to be farmable already, maybe Old Republic will be needed for a legendary sooner than I thought. Oh, and I’m glad Sabine’s saber has the correct cooldown again.
  • So no individual BH packs? That's a shame. Great otherwise.
  • Chewy!!!!!

    Expected one KOTOR toon to be guildstore not all five as hard farm
  • Would have been real nice if we had a couple days between the zombie rework announcement and the release so we could get gear to actually use her... I have a ton invested in my NS that now have to be benched while I wait for the stun gun gods to stop hating me.
  • Yes! The Old Republic toons are farmable now so theoretically we will soon get a Malak Legendary and a Revan Hero's Journey.

    I'm not sure I consider Mission on a 16-energy node as "easily farmable." I mean, did you really consider VetHan and VetChewie "easily farmable"?
  • Lmao wait wait wait, did you guys seriously release a NS Zombie pack?! Hahaha. You guys just ruined that faction in the HSR by over complicating her kit, all while rendering their use in the HSR nearly useless, yet you’re releasing that thing? How about releasing a refund of all the gear and zetas people have poured into that faction and let them choose whether or not to reapply them.
    @CG_SBCrumb @CG_TopHat
  • Anyone confirm the raid changes? Guild is in the middle of a Sith Raid and debating abandoning it to get the faster rewards.
  • Thank you for putting Mission and T3 in Cantina nodes! I've had nothing to farm in there for some time.
  • Corrog wrote: »

    They are all on high energy nodes except t3 that's on a 12 energy Cantina node, hardly easily farmable imho...
  • Two Old Republic characters go to Cantina.

    At least with Hard Nodes you could multiple farm easily enough.

    This seems like a very distinct and middle finger way of addressing people who claimed too many new characters went to Hard Nodes.

    Incentive to panic buy for whatever event we all know utilizes these characters next?

    Naaaah, of course not. I'm delusional.
    Porgatory demands fresh souls.
  • I like the Sith Raid changes. I like the Chewbacca release. The IG-2000 release will be good for those that care about BH ships.

    I realize that putting Mission and T3 on Cantina nodes is not the worst possible outcome, but it gave me flashbacks to farming the Vets.......and that was not a pleasant thought.

    You will have the old mechanics and numbers if you are in battle during the update changed over. Your battle will be a snapshot from earlier but any new attempts started will use the updated systems.

    You do not need to restart the raid to get the newest version.

    EDIT: Still investigating but It looks like Health pools may be snapshotted differently. You may need to restart the raid to get the updated health pools but the mechanics should update. A more concrete answer to this when I have one.

    Is this standard operating procedure? Do NPCs need tags?

    What are you talking about? 3 out of the 5 are hard node farms and 0 out of 5 are in any store. Called this happening. Way to show your players you give a care about their input. "We know we are putting too many characters into hard nodes but... Oh well."
  • Do you mean embo instead of boba for the bonus turn text fix?

    It's for quests. He wasn't counted as GR before.
  • Two Old Republic characters go to Cantina.

    The hell are you taking about? I'm not thrilled they are on high energy nodes but Cantina farms have no limit per day. Without the couple bonus incentives they have for us hard node is generally worse...
