    R7 qgj, gmy, Asoka, Aniken, Maul or tyranus, grievou?
    R6 jedi knight guardian kit fisto maybe tyranus
    R5 bo katan other random Jedi and new characters, separatists- droidica,
    R3/4 others you don’t like

    My guesses
  • It's more like 2.5 years, but I've been farming GR characters and relicing them up to prepare for a GR GL, but now they're gated I'm inclined to give up.

    My GG account is https://swgoh.gg/p/984746298/

    As I said in the mega thread, I just don't see KAM happening simply from a business perspective. Though CG can always prove me wrong on that, the simple fact the .gg stats show around half as many KAMs as the LEAST common GL is all the stats you really need to come to the conclusion that including him as a req just isn't worth it.

    Wat?
    You can pretty easily leave your guild for a week every dark side TB and get him to 7* within 7-8 months.
    Someone with GLs can find a 40-50 shard guild that's open to guild hopping for TB pretty easily.
    I've half considered doing this personally just because the people in my guild refuse to work on their geo teams for whatever reason. You don't have to "actually leave" your guild, just temp leave, for Wat. KAM and C.Rancor are probably a lot less likely to be something you can feasibly guild hop for unless your roster is very, very good, but Wat shouldn't be an issue. Though I also don't seem him being very likely...

    I dont think KAM is needed, if KAM is needed we probably need Negotiator at 7* because it's way easier to obtain.

    I agree....I dont think there is one person that has KAM at 7* that doesnt have NEGO at 7*, so them making NEGO a 6* requirement says to me that KAM will not be needed. If they do make him needed, I am sure it will be at 5*.

    I would save GAS and Padmé for a "Fallen Anakin" one, that seems more possible now that CAT (Commander Ahsoka Tano, lol) is coming to the game too (and of course, as a requirement possibly)

    R8 GK...
    well apparently master kenobi is so good that only the really top tier players and whales can have him

    I think a lot of players and guilds are able to clear Rancor raid or Conquest Hard

    Its not locked to top tier players

    The rancor has been made even harder with the changes with more relics needed. Conquest (hard) is limited to 4M GP so for anyone under that it’s literally impossible to get GL Kenobi

    its the latest toon, its not meant for 4M GP players, who can't attempt conquest hard

    You can always buy the r8 packs, though

    It’s £100 for a single R8 which most people can’t afford on a mobile game. There has never been a character locked behind a gate like this. None of the 4 previous GL’s have had a GP lock of over 4M that makes them inaccessible to the majority of players.

    The key point is that GL’s are an aspirational goal for players that and having to play the game for something like 3-4 years before even getting the opportunity to unlock perhaps the most popular character in Star Wars makes no sense. Saying that’s what it’s “it’s not meant” for players completely undercuts the entire approach that GL’s have for the majority of players by making it completely exclusive

    There is no GP lock on Kenobi though

    You just need to get into a better guild, that rewards you aeromagnifiers

    Or wait until they are more readily available outside conquest and raid, but there are ways to get the r8 pieces (such as paying for them) so saying its GP lock is incorrect

    There is certainly a lock if they require KAM

    Not a GP lock. But really not a lock at all.

    Definitely a roster/mod lock

    Except it's literally not. Hard for a lot of ppl, sure. But not locked at all.
    Yeah you can’t get in a guild getting significant KAM shards unless you have about 6 mil GP, don’t believe me? Check the guild recruitment section. I don’t think KAM will be required, but I also an not naive enough to put it past CG

    There have many things that require a decent guild to achieve at the time. This is not new, and is not a lock. Not good enough to be in a good guild, then you're probably also not ready for the 5th GL either. Good thing there are 4 others that are easier to get.

    I’m sorry but you are just wrong when it comes to KAM

    How? You say it's a lock, but it's literally not. Will everyone get it right away? No. CAN anyone get it right away. Yes.

    It's a mega thread about the entire road ahead, I agree that a lot of people are talking about kenobi requirements though.

    ok. See ya after the merge.

    KAM. As was said in the megathread, they previously said that other GLs won't be required even before all requirements for the second batch were out. So them refusing to say either way on KAM is just "yes, but we don't want you to get angry yet".
  • Maybe literally it isn’t a lock, but it absolutely is a wall for non krackens
  • Another thing is the fact that none of the other GLs needed R8 so why start now if he's only going to be on par with them.

    Not sure the difference in a wall or lock. Nor do I know your definition of a kraken.

    r8 didn't exist when other GLs needed prereqs

    Kam is locked behind a once a month event that Uber krakens like Ahnald just got to 7*. Making him a req would be the lamest thing CG could do and would instantly kill the hype for JMK
  • Right, so if he's going to be only the same as them then many players probably won't want to go for him, even people that spend money

    So you're saying some already have? And presumably more unlocked every TB? And how long until these poor "non krackens" have all the other reqs anyway?

    General Kenobi is one of the best tanks in the game, one of the best non-legendary characters in the game, and is needed for the best capital ship in the game. Getting him to Relic 8 isn't bad.

    Well on my end, I won’t have kam 7* for several more months. 6.6mil GP and my guild is similar in strength. Most anyone has is 4* KAM. I’m no kraken and outside of Bo-Katan, I have the rest no less than G12. So pretty close depending on the rest. Not happy about taking mace to R3 with as junk of a character as he is and no rework, but depending on his kit, may be worth it

    So the average person who is a few months off from KAM is probably a ways off from other reqs anyway. Considering there are more to come.

    All the Jedi Masters. Which is going to hurt because I'm just not good enough to get KiAdiMundi shards.... My guild gets some each time, but I feel like if I'm not beating the mission that I'm not going to get him quickly enough.

    On the plus side, it means I can take my time farming the requirements, since I'll have to do, at a minimum, Boca Ratan from near scratch.

    I mean it’s definitely not but sure believe whatever you want to I guess. There’s still a big difference between KAM and a GL despite his exclusivity. Im not saying that he definitely won’t be a requirement even though I personally don’t expect him to be but them not confirming either way definitely isn’t a yes
  • That's not the point though. I don't have access to R8. Unless I can gain 2mil gp or join a good enough guild that I can stay in, it's unavailable

    You are right, there is a difference. KAM is harder to get.

    Even if they don't require KAM, he is going to be a GR Jedi, so KAM might end up being needed for arena

    There are usually substitutes for arena. Not so for requirements...
