Tier 7. You can mention that to anyone whose done this event and watch them physically cringe. This tier is unforgivably hard. It’s on the level of complete absurdity.
I’ve been attempting this tier for hours on end. I know it’s possible with my characters, more on that later. It’s the most frustrating and annoying thing to ever exist. I get you want to make a challenge, but when that challenge is almost implausible without the hard to obtain BH, then it becomes unfair.
Most other events, not Protocal Droid, are beatable with different teams. Even BB 8 can be solo’d witha single character. This event isn’t. If you want the easiest way, you need to farm someone like Embo, Bossk, or even Jango Fett. They take extraordinary amounts of time due to how bad hard nodes are and how little you’ll get. I’m a F2P and this dream is so far fetched while having a farm for Revan.
My Bounty Hunter team is:
G12 Boba Fett zeta
G9 Cad Bane
Before you insist I need higher gear, I know. However, it can work even while I’m trying to pull the gear together. Out of my attempts on this event, I’ve done the following:
Killed Chewie 4 times with the help of Greedo’s multi attack (Very rare it ever wants to hit)
Killed Lando Once
Killed Chewie and nearly killed Han, but was cucked by RNG.
This is impossible. Share your horror stories.
2. Leave even the 2nd best BH (cad) seriously undergeared.
3. Complain that the event is hard
Horror for me too, but it is possible.
I got it done with the same squad as you but Dengar was G12
I have a zeta on Fett and Greedo
Got slaughtered every time but then I just took them out easily lol
pure RNG luck, just keep gearing up and playing
Bobba g12 zeta
Greedo g10 zeta
It's another problem that the event makes even a full G12 squad heavily RNG dependent, but once you have the required gear level, 1-2 zetas of the right kind (Bossk lead especially) and some decent mods you don't need to attempt it for hours any longer.
Altough, as you said, it should be possible to beat the event with your team. You need 2 crit chance and 4 crit damage/offense mods on Boba, with as much speed as possible. Potency sets on all the other hunters, all their omegas except for leader ability (you need only for Boba obviously). Potency cross on all your BH. Don't use IG's AOE, ever. It feeds TM to the other team.
Your kill order should be fine.
What worked for me for T5-T6 last time (I was heavily undergeared, this time I had full G12 for T7) is to load Lando up with some debuffs, while still trying to take down Chewy first. This way you have a saving belt for Boba if he dies too soon as you can execute Lando and get BH's resolve back on him immediately.
This event is extremely difficult yes, but also extremely attainable even at gear 10 if you load up on potency for survivability.
Get over it, the event is hard but not "complete absurd" or "impossible" by any means. Lots of people built a solid BH team and got him with only a few tries. If it took you more than that it's because you choose the wrong BH to gear up or you don't have enough gear or proper mods on the team.
Legendary toons should be difficult to get, so just because you have a handful of 7* BH don't mean that you should automatically get Chewie. Maybe if you spent a little more time working on the toons and less time **** in the forums you'd gotten the Wookie.
Teir 6 impossible with this team. Working on g11 boba, g10 dengar and zam. We'll see. Next time I'll have bossk zeta and ready so yes it's hard. My thoughts are this game is a grind all the time. Let's reward people for grinding toons to 7* and at least g10 or 11 and stop this madness of needing g12+
2. I’m working on gearing them, like I said. I’ve got my guys loaded with as much potency as I can get them.
Please don’t speak for everyone. It’s extremely hard. Not everyone has Bossk nor has the time to farm them while having to farm so many other characters. There’s no wrong BH to fear, it’s possible with the team I have, but RNG dictates heavily on the battle. Nor should Legendary events be horrifyingly hard, if you’d look back on the previous events.
Was Thrawn hard?
Yes, but you could go it with very low gear.
What about R2?
You could still do it with underdeveloped toons
Hero journey toons?
Still can be done relatively easily.
When your Legendary character takes more time and effort then a Hero Journey character, something is wrong.
This d*** event may make me rage quit this game.
The difficulty for Hero toons has never been the event, it's the farm.
well thats helpful. I did mention that my bossk is already with a zeta and is one of my g12.
Unless you were answering someone else?
Dengar is also great, but it's a bit of luck even with him. On the run I cleared he didn't get critically hit, so R2's smokescreen went off anyways. He makes you less reliant on RNG (and is a great healer under bossk lead), but he's not necessary. No one is.
I agree its an RNG s***fest, but with that kind of gear on my toons i should be able to blow through it. Heck, i can even do almost all BH events on auto without any worries.
Not to mention the fact that r2 appears to have insane amounts of life/protection. No, without dengar around to allow you to hit people other than r2 i believe the event is nigh impossible, unless you have god RNG and they dont use any abilities.
I think this event, like c3po, has been made waaaay too hard. I think CG has forgotten what their old legendary events look like. Even if i had all 5 BH g12 with all of their zetas, i dont think i'd be able to beat it.
And C3PO was easier. If anything they decided to ramp the new model down a bit for the newest one.
Because it’s substantially harder without the ideal team. That doesn’t make the ideal team necessary. If Dengar was necessary there wouldn’t be anybody completing the event without him, and there are such people.
I was eagerly awaiting this event with my BH team, all 7*, G12, and had been ripping up on all events that I could use them in the past month. Then this event started, and I promptly beat T6 first try, then on to T7. Tried about a dozen times, and made zero progress. Mention on our guild discord that I was surprised by the difficulty of the event, and I was going to have to optimize my mods, because I figured that was what I'd overlooked.
Spent a hour or two creating mod sets that should be best for what was needed. Tried maybe another dozen times, and was getting much further in the event than before i changed mods. Then one time things just "clicked", and finished it. It was the same strategy every time, yet got very different results.
My mods are what they are, not the best overall, but that was the difference maker to me. And I jokingly commented on discord that I "found" a +17 speed mod on an unused character. Not sure why it was there, but happy to have it in use now.
Key thing to understand that is with out Bossk and under a boba lead all hunters need a total combined Potency of about 350%+ as well as decent Prot/Health secondaries as well if they are under G10. This being said I do believe zBoba pulled a ton of weight on my potato hunter squad and without his Zeta I dont think a 7* Chewie without Bossk/Dengar is possible (My G12 zBoba was also just below Arena Quality modded +80 Speed +60%Potency +16000Protection + 4500 Health)
Secondary point of interest is knowing when to use your Thermals and having Zam with enough offense to take out users with 2-3 TDs stacked onto them as she auto detonates any Thermals using her basic. And NEVER use 88s special until Chewie/Han are DEAD! They are the most dangerous units to feed TM to and EVERY debuff and TD will give the whole team TM under ROLO lead.
Even with all the advice mentioned above I have seen friends and guildmates take home 7* chewie using different tactics and less tries (For the lucky ones) so just dont give up and keep banging your head against the RNG wall of hopelessness
