While I have been playing this game on and off for roughly 2 years, I have never gotten serious about it. I’ve just plodded along, mostly playing it for the collection aspect of it. And in the last 6 months especially, I’ve barely paid attention to anything beyond the odd video from the likes of cubsfan han and ahnhaldt101. Then Grand Arena came and pretty much slapped me across the face with a dose of reality. If I’m going to keep playing and have fun, I need to change how I approach the game. Not necessarily become Uber 1337, but certainly get better and more focused. Unfortunately, being the uninformed pleb that I am, I’m a wee bit lost and confused.
So, first things first. My swgoh.gg profile. https://swgoh.gg/p/496934589/
My roster in its current state is spread to thin across too many factions. Leaving me with a lot of dead weight in my galactic power score. I solved some of it by removing mods from a lot of dead weight characters. The thing I really need help with is getting my bearings and setting up my short term goals and the direction to take to achieve that. With that in mind, I have narrowed it down to 3 things I really need to solve.
1) Fix My arena team situation, so I can stop being stuck in the 500-1000 bracket.
2) Improve my roster without bloating the galactic power further so I can actually field a roster in the grand arena so I’m no longer so easily steamrolled.
3) Figure out if I can also improve my fleet arena situation without spreading myself too thin.
I have put up a few squads on my swgoh.gg profile most of which are what I use in the grand arena, at least when it’s 5v5. There’s also 2 old HAAT squads on there that I have no idea even works anymore. As well as 2 squads I’m currently aiming to improve, in the short term. One for bounty hunter and one for imperial trooper.
What I’m currently actively farming:
Mods, mods, mods. Oh boy do I need better mods.
My energy goes into farming bastila (69/100), and Jango Fett (12/65). And the leftovers go to gear farming.
My cantina energy goes to farming Veteran Smuggler Han Solo (68/100) and will shift to Veteran Smuggler Chewbacca (0/85) afterwards.
My ship energy goes into farming Bastila as well, and I had planned to go back to farming Bistan’s U-Wing (54/85) afterwards.
Crystals I use on (standard) energy refreshes and gear.
I’m currently grabbing Stormtrooper (12/100) shards from, mostly because Shore Trooper would take to long for a short term plan.
I’m currently grabbing Colonel Starck (33/100) shards, and some gear from the guild store.
I’m currently grabbing Savage Opress (50/65) shards from the squad arena store.
I got almost every character from the galactic war store, so I grab mostly ship shards from it.
Mod store I barely touch.
I grab mostly character shards from the fleet arena store. Like the clone troopers.
I use the guild event store almost entirely for Hermit Yoda (10/100) shards.
I use the shard store only for gear, especially those pesky stun guns.
When it comes to legendary characters I din’t currently have. I’ve put them on the back burner for now. Although as I keep improving my bounty hunter team I’ll get in a position to grab Chewbacca as a consequence. And I’m not too far off from grabbing Jedi Training Rey if I stick with the Veteran Smuggler farm.
Anywho, this post is already a giant wall of text, and if people want more information I can add it in on request. Hopefully between the information given, and my rambling, there’s enough here for people to give me advise and tips on how to fix my current arena and grand arena predicament in the short to medium term. Although any other advise would also be appreciated. Or correct me if my current plans are way off course.
Thanks and cheers.
