Noticing that the Yoda event started, I took and saw I had 4/5 of the required characters for 6*. This was a little surprising since I thought I only had three at 6* or higher, but then saw that my forth was due to recently leveling QGJ.
Taking a look at my roster, and noticed I had enough shards to level JC to 6*, so took the plunge! Starting at 4956 power, promoting him raised him to 5396:
Seeing as how 5* was doable, but a challenge, I figured 6* would also present a good challenge. However, it was very simple and a bit of a disappointment.
I have not yet promoted Yoda since I’m focusing on Rey and QGJ first. Yoda may wait until I can get him to 7* to help with T7 raids, unless I end up needing to give him a boost to help with GW.
Finished switching from my original guild to the free-to-play Inglorious Blasters.
For the past couple weeks I have continuously been ranking at the top of the guild’s daily activities. Rank #1 10 times, #2 twice, and #3 three times during the previous 17 days. And I was noticing the amount of coins I was getting were rather low, some times 148 for a #1 rank. My placement in raids has also gone up. While both good, it means some of the better members have left. As only around 15 people seemed to be contributing (out of 50), it seemed like it would be best to be in a more active guild.
I figured I would switch guilds in a few weeks once I got my roster a bit farther along with Rey and QGJ at 7* and better geared. Being a little bored Tuesday evening, I decided to look in the forum and saw Inglorious Blasters were recruiting and figured it would be a good time to switch.
At the time, they were working on expanding from 50 members to 100 and split the guild in two; America and Europe. The split would allow members to better focus and play during their day without having worry about missing a raid starting in the middle of the night.
Inglorious Blasters caught my eye, not because they are ranked 12th, but because they are free-to-play and focused on Tier 7 raids. I figured it would help to be with other F2Pers and get some helpful advise.
I joined their chat in Discord and since have been actively following along. Since they were able to recruit members quickly, they started the process of splitting a few days early and I recently got an invite.
I am excited to be with similar players in this guild and we will see how I fair in Tier 7 raids.
I completed more cantina battles and ended up with 208 shards for Qui-Gon Jinn, enough to get him to 6*.
Starting at just 2* and 2851 power (level 80 / gear VI), promoting him raised him to 3338, 3804, 4268, then 4757.
Banner for the Assault Battles: Forest Moon. It’s empire and droids against ewoks.
Unfortunately I do not have enough appropriate characters to complete this. Maybe next time.
Ended up joining the raid a little late after the refresh and got the pleasure of killing the Rancor. I believe this is the second time I have landed a killing blow. My last attempt for the raid was with a Jedi team led by Yoda and ended up doing 47,711 damage.
Banner for new character Geonosian Spy.
Yet another character released I will not be getting anytime soon as a free-to-play player.
Banner for this month’s daily login character: Jedi Knight Anakin.
I was sort of hoping for a new character, since some people might already have Anakin maxed out as he has been available for a long time (since the start of the game?). I guess since they reworked his character the want to provide a chance for people to get him more easily. Since I do not really have other characters that work well with Anakin, I’ll be waiting on trying to level him up.
