Possibly Switching to a Jedi Team

For awhile I have been using a CLS lead rebel team in the arena. I was basically happy with it, up until the Sith rework which has caused me to drop slowly over time and have a hard time catching back up. With the release of Bastila and Jolee I quickly put some work into them, with the thought about going back to a Jedi team (which I had used in my early playing before my rebels started to out perform them).

You can see my Jedi in my sig. Obviously I want to get them stronger before switching, and put mods on them. But I was wondering about the best choices to use along with Bastila and Jolee (unfortunately General Kenobi is the one Jedi out of reach for me. My roster might be strong, but my guild is not and the Rancor is the only heroic we can do. And I don't plan on changing guilds as tempting as it might to help get my last missing characters).

  • Bastila lead, Ezra, GMY, Hoda, Old Ben.

    At least those are ones I have a good start on. Was hoping Jolee would fit better, but it may still have been worth putting so much work into him if he ends up needed for Revan. The complete lack of Zetas looks like the biggest issue, though I am at least close to being able to get one, and little more gear upgrading, especially Hoda.
  • What I am seeing on my shard, a older one, is 5 jedi teams now competing. GMY is in everyone of them. 4 of the 5 use GK. 3 Use Ezra, 3 use JKA. 3 use Hermit Yoda too. One even uses DN.

    What I see fighting them: My Palp team is about 50-50 against them on offense. My NS team is 4-0. With NA hiding (lack of jedi AOE) and once you take one guy down it is a easy finish. My NS is not modded for arena nor does it have my best speed mods.

    Originally those teams were popping up with Jolee, though he has since disappeared. Fighting against them, Jolee makes them MUCH easier to beat. He is like a wasted slot, they need offense not heals and if they lose their protection they are dead fast anyways.

    The Jedi meta is coming, it will take another new character or one more reword and they are king. NS appears, in my experience to be a good counter.

    Major update time! I have been using this team and have been pretty happy with it, but...who gets kicked out for my brand new Revan?

    This sounds about right.

    Some are suggesting that Jolee might take the place of HYoda, but I haven’t tried it yet.

    Old Ben can be a solid tank, and it seems like many prefer him to GK in this team.
  • Jolee is the worst toon ever behind only a few other Jedi. I have never seen a worse AI TOON. Worthless at best at this time. With taunt clense he is dead meat. With revan you already get a rez.

    Worthless but we had to buy him.
  • Hate to break it to you but I wouldnt let your guild hold you back. You really should get GK and even try to get Traya.

    I made my choice. I have been in the same guild since I hit the minimum level for it, I am now an officer and the second strongest member (after the leader) by a rather wide margin. Other than the leader simply quitting the game, there isn't really anything as it is now that would make me change. Sure I would like General Kenobi (and the Jedi Knight title that requires him), Traya and to get Wampa faster (only non-raid character I am missing at the moment) but not enough to get me to switch guilds. Maybe someday I will be able to solo the Tank like I can solo the Rancor, short of that or a new source for Kenobi like they did for Han, I am going to live with missing him and Traya for the foreseeable future.

    I learned a long time ago. It's a big mistake staying in a guild that's holding you back, I personally don't get why you would stay considering how many guilds out there have HAAT on farm.

    That's weird. From what I've been hearing Jolee with his Zeta, under a Revan lead, makes the team really strong on defense. I still think it's premature calling him useless.

    Depends on the guild really but I agree. If the guild is not even 25 daily active members though you should leave. If you see steady growth it doesn't hurt to stay.

    I left a dead guild and joined one not yet haat ready. But I wasn't ready either. By the time I had haat teams assembled the rest of my guild was ready and it's on farm.

    Bit of advice haat wise: cls + raid han + hoda can basically solo p1; cls, raid han, bb8, thrawn, r2 solo p3 and can take a good chunk out of p4. If you can get your guild to put together a few jtr resistance teams for p2 & p4 you and your guild leader can carry them the rest of the way.

    You're so wrong...
  • If you're dead set on staying in that guild then you should consider gearing up HAAT solo squads with the other higher gp members. If you can swing Revan than it shouldn't be too difficult to do. I gotta agree with the rest though, most guilds these days should be HAAT ready. Maybe talk to the leader and you guys jump ship together or something
  • You’ve almost got 3 Million GP. You should be in a guild with the Heroic Sith Raid on farm. The HAAT shouldn’t even be an afterthought at that point.

    That's an eventual goal. But I've just spent a lot of time and effort rushing to power first the Bastila led Jedi team, then Old Republic characters and ultimately Revan himself (and bounty hunters with the Chewbacca event in the middle of that). I'm taking a break from that sort of focus, and taking it more slowly for a while, while I slowly gather the materials for Revan's remaining two zetas. It doesn't help that I notice Wampa is part of a lot of those recommended teams, which would mean waiting not only to unlock him but get him to 7 star. On the plus side, powering up the bounty hunters for Chewbacca means I might be able to get the shards from the bounty event from here on.
  • Happy medium to leaving your guild completely, every couple of months join a guild with HAAT (or Sith on farm) get a couple raids in to acquire shards then re-join your other guild so they don't get dis-heartened. Little of both worlds, you eventually get GK and Treya and you get to stay loyal to your guild. Think of it as taking a periodic sabbatical for "training" :)

    Not true...I’m one of 3 Bastila Teams remaining in our Shards Top 25!
    What do all 3 teams have in common? Jolee instead of Hoda.
    The Hoda teams disappeared......
