After getting updating Rey, I figured I would level Qui-Gon Jinn to level 80 as well to use up the credits necessary so I don’t have to keep track of what is necessary when ready to fully power up. This is my second level 80.
Initially I was obtaining shards for Rey from hard light-side and dark-side battles. I noticed some shards appearing in the guild store, but decided to focus on Gamorrean Guard. A few weeks ago, I decided to grab Rey shards as well from the guild store since the drop rate was not that great from hard battles and it was taking forever.
I also figured there would not be much of a point unlocking her until I could promote to 6* since any lower level would not be viable for raiding. Today I finally got enough shards to unlock and promote to 6*! It is a good thing I saved up gear, credits, and materials since this cost a bit:
Upon activating, I was presented with the option to power her up a bit for $16. But of course, this seems like a horrible deal for what you get and I’ll just stay free-to-play:
Initial Rey has a whopping power of 272 at 4*, level 1, gear 1!
Raising to 5* only increases power by 6:
And power increases another 4 when promoting to 6*:
Raising from level 1 to 80 ended up costing a staggering 4,636,584 credits! This is a little cheaper than just hitting the “Assign All” button (but I don’t remember exactly how much… I’ll try to capture that in the future).
This also raised her power by over 3,000:
Using what I had, was able to get her to gear 6, which increased her power another 1,000:
Used the energy I still had to get what material was needed to raise the gear level and ended up at gear 7 (close-ish to 8):
Last, maxed out all her abilities:
At the end, left with just over 5.5 million credits. Total cost of all this was about 6 million credits plus lots of materials, but I now have Rey! Now to continue until I can get her maxed at 7* and highest possible gear.
Banner for Omega event.
Apparently people complained about the Force Champion Kit Fisto event, so it was canceled and the Omega weekend event is taking its place. I attempted to look on the forum for these complaints, but I did not really see any. The guess on the forum is that after a day they were not seeing people spend as much money on the event as previously.
I am a little disappointed by this change since I sort of liked the force champion events. Since I am already at level 80, I have been getting omega materials every day and I would rather have a couple extra character shards instead of another omega. Oh well.
Banner for the next Force Champion event; Kit Fisto.
I’m not as excited for this one, but I won’t say no to some Kit Fisto and other Jedi character shards.
Banner for Force Champions Booster Packs, to go along with the new events.
Banner for new event Force Champion: Aayla Secura.
I’m a little excited for this event since I can get some shards for Aayla.
Banner for the new character Zam Wesell.
