    After you've defeated Stage 3 of Fleet-Hard, that list stays the same, but once you defeat Stage-4 you get access to a lot of interesting and powerful options. Then your priority list looks like this:

    1. Bastila Shan
    2. Anakin's ETA-2
    3. Greef Karga + Rebel Y-Wing - I need to focus here
    4. TIE Adv X-1
    5. Jolee Bindo - I have yet to get this toon
    6. Carth Onasi - I have yet to get this toon
    7. Clone Sergeant ARC-170 60/ 4 star (36/65)/ gear 6, ability level 3, 3, 3/ power 3444
  • I forgot to list my most powerful toon.

    Boba Fett 74, 7 star, gear 8, abilities 7, 7, 7, 6, 6, 2/ power 11799

    Cantina Energy farms, in order:
    1. TIE Silencer => 7*
    2. Ezra => 5*
    3. Hera => 5*
    4. Ezra => 6*
    5. Hera => 6*
    6. Ezra => 7*
    7. Hera => 7*

    Fleet Energy farms, in order:
    1. Anakin's ETA-2
    2. Greef Karga + Rebel Y-Wing
    3. TIE Adv X-1
    4. Jolee Bindo
    5. Carth Onasi
    6. Clone Sergeant ARC-170

    So do 5 attempts each, every day, of the top 3 on the list, unless you haven't conquered that node yet (you're probably not up to Greef Karga's node, for example). You should be up to Jolee's node by now, though.

    If you can't access at least 3 of these, let me know & I'll look at the priorities. for somewhere else to spend your energy.

    Regular Energy farms, in order:
    1. Vulture droid (60 energy/day, node = light 4-D)
    2. Sabine (60 energy/day, node = Dark 1-A)
    3. Poggle (+IG-2000 as a side benefit) (80 energy/day, node = light 6-E)
    4. TIE Bomber (80 energy/day, node = dark 5-A) (+ Kuiil as a side benefit)
    5. Jolee Bindo (80 energy/day, node = dark 6-D)
    6. Barriss (80 energy/day, node = Dark 5-C)
    7. Range Trooper (an imperial, but trust me, 60 energy/day, dark 3-A)
    8. Hyena Bomber (100 energy/day, node = Dark 8B)

    That's 600 energy per day. You shouldn't have quite that much per day, but some days when going up levels you might. Let's give you 2 more, just in case of a day with lots of energy:
    9. Fives (CT 5555) (60 energy/day, node = Dark 2D)
    10. Ewok Elder (60 energy/day, node = Light 2C)

    Stores.
    Shipments
    The first 4 slots are all low-level gear, but it's available for cheap and what you don't use now you'll crap for relic materials later in your career. BUY ALL THE CHEAP GEAR, EVERY TIME. If it's not those first 4 lots of gear, though, skip it.

    Weekly Shipments
    I'm worried about your Credit production. I expected your Arena characters to be 2 to 3 levels behind your character level at this point, but they're much lower than that. So I have to ask, what have you been spending credits on? Also, are you completing GW every day? And, finally, how is your guild? We might have to get you a better guild if that is the problem.
    In the meantime, DO NOT buy the weekly character shards. It's much more important right now to boost the character level of your Arena squad first, then your Fleet Arena pilots, and finally any Jedi you use in GW that aren't on your Arena squad.
    After we address your credit income and are happy with that, go back to buying the character shards that are available for 1Million credits if you feel like you can. Although it's only 20 shards/week, you'll find later that you got a good head start on a whole bunch of toons you didn't realize you had shards for.


    Cantina Battles Store:
    1. Hoth Rebel Scout => 7*
    2. Fives => 7*
    3. Cassian's U-Wing => 5*
    4. FOO => 5*
    5. Old Daka => 5*
    6. Poe Dameron => 5*
    7. Storm Trooper => 5*
    8. Qui-Gon => 5*
    9. Pao => 5*
    10. Bistan => 5*
    11. Jawa Scavenger => 5*

    ALL of those toons after CT 5555 ("Fives") (so starting with Cassian's U-Wing on down) are what I call "just in case" toons (or "ship" for CU-W). You're going to need them, but you don't need any of them soon, and you don't know what order you're going to need them since that will depend on what goals you set down the road. (And also, sometimes, opportunities created by good luck with Bronziums or whatever.) So instead of farming the first 3 all the way to 7* & then realizing you need Pao sooner than the toons you finished, but you have to start from scratch, just take them each to 5* and move on. As soon as you have a real plan for one of the toons that requires it to be 7* and not just unlocked, then you can come back and finish it, but it only takes half the time since you're starting with 145 shards.
    But if you don't need ANY of them and you have them all at 5*, go back up to CU-W and take each one to 6* in order. Then go back and take CU-W to 7* ... but then instead of taking all the rest to 7* in turn, just keep buying CU-W shards even though you have the ship maxed. Turn those ship blueprints into Shard Shop Currency so you can buy gear with it. When the time comes that you need one of the characters below CU-W on the list, go finish it, then go back to buying CU-W blueprints.
    All of those other characters will occasionally drop shards in events or Galactic War or Bronziums or whatever. Some of them will very slowly (VERY slowly) take themselves to 7* without any effort on your part. If you find that they got that last star without spending on them, you win! If you find you need them before that, well, it's a short farm since they're already at 6* + whatever random shards have dropped since then.
    There are a couple more toons in the Cantina Battles store (JKG & Mob Enforcer) but they're not really worth the effort. If you're really, really desperate for something to do or if you're just a perfectionist who likes to have every toon, you can take them up after everything else on this list is at 7*.

    Guild Store Priority List:
    1. Build up a bank of 2,000 Guild Store Tokens
    2. FO SF TIE (the ship) + FOSF TIE Pilot (both simultaneously until Pilot is unlocked, then stop buying Pilot, but keep buying the ship to 5*)
    3. Dengar => 7*
    4. FO SF TIE (the ship) => 7*
    5. FOSF TIE Pilot => 4*
    6. Old Ben
    7. Paploo
    8. Logray
    9. Colonel Starck
    10. FOSF TIE (Pilot) => 7*
    11. Barriss
    12. Jyn
    13. Finn => 5*
    14. B-2 => 5*
    15. Rex => 5*
    16. Echo => 5*
    17. Clone Sergeant = 5*
    18. Cody => 5*
    19. Maul => 5*
    20. Zam => 5*
    21. Jawa Engineer => 5*

    From Finn on down are "Just in case" toons. You know what to do with those. Take them each to 5*, then take them each to 6*, then leave them alone. When you have to have one at 7*, interrupt what you're doing (since you don't need any of them that badly) and finish that one toon, then pick back up where you left off

    You'll notice that finishing FOSF TIE (Pilot) is much farther down the list than FOSF TIE (the ship). This is for a couple reasons. One is that you should pick up a few shards of FOSFTP in events, but it's harder to get blueprints of the ship. But the other is that you have to have a certain number of dark side ships to qualify for promotion events for Tarkin's Executrix and also for the Zeta challenge. To qualify for those, the Pilot doesn't have to be a certain number of stars, only the ship itself.

    One final note is that except for Colonel Starck, all of these toons pop in & out of the store randomly. Because of that, it's often a good idea keep a bank of 2k tokens. Use those for whatever is your highest priority, but if you can buy the next thing down on your list without going under 2k tokens, go ahead and do that. This will be especially helpful on the Ewoks and Clone Sergeant, which show up pretty rarely.

    Squad Arena Store farms, in order:
    1. Greedo => 5*
    2. StormTrooper Han => 5*
    3. Leia => 5*
    4. Ackbar => 6*
    5. STHan => 6*
    6. Leia => 6*
    7. Ackbar => 7*
    8. Leia => 7*
    9. STHan => 7*
    10. Greedo => 7*
    11. IG-88 => 7*
    12. Cassian => 7*
    13. Ventress => 5*
    14. HK-47 => 5*
    15. Sidius => 5*

    Note that the last 3 toons are "Just in case" at this point. If your NightSisters need Ventress before that, though, that's fine. Because I used so many intermediate steps, this looks like a lot more work than it is. The first 10 steps are just 4 toons.

    When we're not working on our original list of 17 characters, we fall back on other priorities, like improving performance in Territory Battles (which for you means rebels generally, but Rogue 1 & Phoenix especially) and bring up your Bounty Hunter squad for use in the Bounty Hunter events (there are a number of them) and the BH mission in dark side Hoth TB. If there were Imperial Troopers in the Squad Arena store I would have added them to this list before Ventress, since they, also, have special missions exclusive to them in dark side Hoth TB. In any case, I'm trying to balance those other priorities when we get past the 17 characters we know are tops.

    In any case, this is a good starting point and if you want to vary things up later, that's fine.

    GW Store farms, in order:
    1. Keep 2,000 in the bank except for purchases of highest remaining priority
    2. Zeb => 5*
    3. Geo Spy Starfighter => 7*
    4. Geo Soldier Starfighter => 7*
    5. Zeb => 7*
    6. Imperial TIE Fighter => 6*
    7. Cad Bane => 7*
    8. Clone Sergeant's ARC-170 => 6*
    9. Imperial TIE => 7*
    10. Clone Sergeant's ARC-170 => 7*
    11. Resistance X-Wing
    12. First Order TIE Fighter => 6*
    13. Ahsoka Tano's Jedi Starfighter => 6*
    24. Plo Koon's Jedi Starfighter => 6*
    15. Umbaran Starfighter => 6*
    16. Jedi Consular's Starfighter => 6*
    17. ==>ANY ships that aren't at 7* yet, pretty much in random order (but remember the 2k bank rule for the highest priority ship to make sure you finish your rare ones)
    18. K2-SO => 7*
    19. Teebo => 7*
    20. Biggs => 5*
    21. Luminara Unduli => 5*
    22. Phasma => 5*
    23. Magmatrooper => 5*
    24. NightSister Initiate => 5*
    25. Biggs => 5*
    26. Tusken Raider => 5*
    27. Resistance Pilot => 5*
    28. Dathcha => 5*

    Everyone from Biggs down is "Just in case", so when you get Dathcha to 5*, you go back up to Biggs & then give everyone one more star, so that they're all at 6* and will be easy to finish if you need to finish one quickly.

    However, even though that's the plan, if an unexpected need for any of those toons shows up, just take that toon to 7* no matter the order. I try to predict the best order for you, but I can't predict everything. So once you get down to Biggs, don't be afraid to improvise.

    Fleet Arena Store:
    1. Collect 2k Tokens, and only spend below that for your highest priority
    2. TAX-1
    3. Slave 1 (Boba's ship)
    4. Imperial TIE => 5* (after that, use other sources)
    5. Grievous
    6. Ghost & Phantom II (simultaneously & equal priority)
    7. Rex's ARC-170
    8. Bistan's U-Wing
    9. Scimitar & Poe's X-Wing (simultaneously & equal priority)
    10. Gauntlet Starfighter
    11. Ahsoka Tano (Fulcrum) & Chirrut Imwe (Simultaneously & equal priority)
    12. Plo Koon & Wedge (Simultaneously & equal priority)

    When you're working on two simultaneous top priorities, keep 3k in the bank instead of 2k, and only go below 3k for one of those 2 top priorities.

    However, any time you've got more than your magic number in the bank, feel free to buy the next priority down your list if it shows up. Right now your top priority is TAX -1 , but you might buy Slave1 or even Imperial TIE blueprints if you have a stash of Tokens and one of those other ships shows up.

    Okay this thing started eating my posts rather relentlessly. I'm going to leave it alone until either they get resurrected or a couple days passes. Nothing changes in GET1/GET2 or Shard Shop purchases now anyway.
  • Cantina Energy farms, in order:
    1. TIE Silencer => 7*
    2. Ezra => 5*
    3. Hera => 5*
    4. Ezra => 6*
    5. Hera => 6*
    6. Ezra => 7*
    7. Hera => 7*

    I’m actively farming the tie silencer and should have it 7 stars very soon. I will then continue focus on Ezra and Hera. Thank you!


  • Fleet Energy farms, in order:
    1. Anakin's ETA-2
    2. Greef Karga + Rebel Y-Wing
    3. TIE Adv X-1
    4. Jolee Bindo
    5. Carth Onasi
    6. Clone Sergeant ARC-170

    So do 5 attempts each, every day, of the top 3 on the list, unless you haven't conquered that node yet (you're probably not up to Greef Karga's node, for example). You should be up to Jolee's node by now, though.

    If you can't access at least 3 of these, let me know & I'll look at the priorities. for somewhere else to spend your energy.

    I will start farming these 5 times a day. I really have lagged behind on Greef, Bindo, and Onasi…I will follow this plan and get all these neede toons ASAP.
