Firstly, these two should have their own discussion section by now.
Secondly, when I'm farming for each, what should my goal gear level be?
I have 55/330 shards for Darth Revan, and did not merit an invitation to Malaks ball...
I'm just looking for a minimum of what works for those who have either of these characters. I assume that if one were ready for Malak, they would be more than ready for Darth Revan.https://swgoh.gg/p/991589674/characters/
You're going to have an incredibly difficult time with Malak if your Zaalbar isn't being used, lmao. Darth Revan event is pretty easy, you shouldn't need any zetas for it (although Carth lead does help a lot).
Malak, you don't really need Mission or Zaalbar zetas (some say it helps, others say it doesn't), but you need Zaalbar and Mission present. T3 doesn't really help much at all.
Everything above is correct though
Outside of Big Z and T4, I have the others at gear 11 and up.
For characters with 5/6 abilities they can be G11 with no zetas, or G10 with zeta (or even lower with multiple Zetas) - this includes both Revans, both Bastilas, Jolee, HK, and T3.
This is to get *into* the event, mind you. While the Zetas will help you bypass the gear requirements, many of the Zetas are not useful in the event. You can't have more than one leader, and some of the unique Zetas for HK, Jedi Knight Revan and Darth Revan will have zero or minimal advantage in gameplay.
Thanks. I was working towards gearing because the 4 zetas I can drop should go elsewhere. Does the event allow you to use your revan or do you have to use an event character?
You use your own Revan (who also has to meet the 17.5k requirement, though it’s easier for him and everybody who cares about this event would presumably do it anyway).
Awesome! I would rather use my own, not sure it matters?
Agreed, it’s nice to be able to switch mods to what works best and whatever. There was a tier in the Darth Revan event (I think?) where you had to use a borrowed Jolee and I wished I could use my own who is a lot better!
For Malak, as others have said, you pretty much need to G12 most characters to get them over the threshold if they aren't zeta'd. Might need to slice a mod or two to 6E as well. Dark Bastila and anyone else with more than 4 abilities (can't remember them all offhand) are a bit easier. You'll want your light side team to be as diesel as you can make them though, because it's really hard. Dark side is stupid easy so whatever you need to hit the minimum is fine.
My plan also included using the best mods I have, which I'm getting a decent selection of 6 dot mods. I figure swap mods, beat it and put them back. lol
For the Malak event, you use your own Revans, so if you haven't already unlocked Darth Revan, you'll need to have sufficient gear and zetas to get him to 17,500 if the same event cadence occurs.
I wouldn't think CG would run it any different way. Not going to stop gearing them until the even comes.
I just unlocked DRevan. He is currently at Gear 8 and 15k GP. If I got him to the 17.5k threshold, would it be possible to beat the Malak event? I know the DRevan side is easier due to stacking ferocity. What is the minimum if I cannot Gear 12 DRevan? All the other characters are ready to go.
I want to conserve resources for gearing/ Zetas for the General Grievous team I am farming to unlock Padme.
Do you have any zetas on him yet?
I would need a few gear items hopefully to get him to Gear 9 then slap a Zeta to get him to 17,500k
Which Zeta should be first for DRevan? Maybe Villian? And I use Carth as lead? I have Carth’s Zeta.
I had 2 zeta left after dumping 3 or 4 just to unlock the guy. I started with leader ability. I am still deciding on the other zeta, thankfully I only need 8 more zetas for my next one.
For that piece of gear, bottom left. The new one. A guildmate and I are talking about buying vs farming. They estimate that farming is roughly 2500 crystals, with 20% drop rate. Buying would be 2800 per piece of gear. That is getting from 8 to 9. Not sure about the new gear from 9 to 10, but assume its similar. So would 5,600 crystals be worth it to get those 2 pieces now?
Your point? If you don't have anything positive to add to the conversation, you can take your trolling elsewhere.
My point is that you could have done it with less.
@Chucko_marek I have been saving my crystals that I get from dailies and arena payouts, TBs to slowly buy the gear. I think DRevan needs 100 of each Kyrotech salvage.
