Daily Team Building Megathread - 19 July 2018

Please note you must only make use of this megathread if you're seeking very personalized advice and it's a weekday. This generally means you're posting a link to your roster, an image of your roster, or a list of characters while wondering what to do, where to go next, or asking for thoughts on your progress. You can read rule 4 for more information on this.

If what you're asking is much more general, or you are willing to make it more general (so more users can benefit from it), then you can post it as a regular submission. Note that this doesn't mean it has to be broad or vague, it can be focused on a specific topic as long as it's not personalized for you. And if it's the weekend, you can post it however you wish.


Welcome to the Daily Team Building Megathread!

This megathread has been created in order to help all types of players progress through the game. The megathread will be replaced daily on weekdays in order to prevent massive amounts of comments and increase visibility.

There are several community-made guides made or found on this subreddit. You may want to try the subreddit's search bar or a search engine before posting.

Any game-related questions with respect to setting up or improving your team are allowed, such as (but not limited to):

  • Team Setup in Squad Arena, Fleet Arena, and Any Other Game Modes
  • Character Advice
  • Leveling Priorities
  • Ability Priorities
  • Gearing Priorities
  • Farming Advice
  • Minimum Requirement Suggestions

To give others an easier time in helping you, we strongly recommend you provide them with a way to view your roster. This can be through an image link (such as Imgur) or through your SWGoH.GG profile link. You can also list your characters, which may be okay for more focused questions.

You might want to check other recent team building megathreads to see what advice other players have been given. Archived submissions are available here.

Annihilate, Probe Droid's explosion and other "massive damage" effects should do 199k damage

With 100k+ attacks becoming more and more common, these "massive damage" attacks are becoming less and less impressive. Once 6* mods and/or G13 come out these will probably seem more like average attacks (maybe they will have to change the text to "moderate damage").

Perhaps the damage increases could only apply at G12 or something if they don't want to trivialize certain early game content.

replacement Arena Phoenix Team

HiI'm level 55 and running with the Phoenix Team in the Arena. I'm thinking to move this team to a Empire Team.

What do you thinks about a team with Palpatine, Thrwan, Vader, Tarkin and TIE Fighter Pilot (or Veers) Is this more powerfull and for the long-term bether in the arena?

Can we balance support buffers CG?

So both Bastila and GM Yoda start the matches with their buffs, which is fair, since they're support characters and that's their specific role - to strengthen their team members to take down the opposition. No issues there because it makes sense for their role in the team.

So WHY, for some godforsaken reason, do Colonel Starck and FOO not do the same thing? Both have buff specials, but both open with their second attacking specials on defense.

So, asking nicely - are you looking at maybe making ALL support characters with buff specials prioritize them in an equal fashion (i.e. first priority)? It seems almost broken to make some support characters 'smart' and others INSANELY stupid.

Please and thanks :)

Let's talk about Ship Energy and Guild Daily Activities

  • Counts for Tuesday "Spend any energy."
  • Doesn't count for daily raid tickets 600 energy.
  • Doesn't count for Hard Battles energy on Wednesday (even though there are Normal and Hard Missions for ships).
  • EDIT: They DO count for Hard Nodes Individual Daily Activities

Why the inconsistency?

SWGOH the good parts

I felt like this sub needed more positive posts, so here's a small comparison with SWGOH and other FTP games with micro-transactions.

I'm not saying there are no bad parts, but there are a lot of good things in this game, here are a few:

  • We don't have to unlock character slots with (premium) currency
    There are a lot of FTP games where you have a limited amount of character slots and need to either limit yourself or buy more slots, most of the time with premium currency
  • Character Shards don't expire
    Some other games give you cards for example and if you can't use them right now (because of slot restrictions or something) they expire after some time
  • Every character is obtainable for FTP players (you might have to wait a bit for marquee) with a reasonable amount of RNG
    Don't even get me started about Gacha games where you have a 1-3% change of getting a character you want for ridiculous amounts of premium currency.
    You think spending 300$ on a marquee character is bad (Yeah it still is)? But imagine the packs giving you 0-50 shards and getting 0 most of the time.
    I used to play "DBZ: Dokkan Battle" where some characters cost you ~400$ on average, but you could spend 2k and still not get that character you wanted.
    Or "Summoners War", there most characters aren't farmable and it's completely random which char you get. The Strongest characters (called nat 5*) have a ~1% chance on summons and then you get one of 50 or so possible ones with a very slim chance of getting the one you actually want.
  • Arena payout EVERY DAY
    This is really nice, there are a lot of games where you only get a payout once per week and it's approximately worth what you get in 1 day here
  • Possible to reach high arena rankings as a FTP even on kraken shards
    Especially with the very accessible Nightmare / Jedi teams
  • Large community with game dev interaction not only on their forums but also on reddit
    Many other game devs don't give a hoot about their community

Feel free to add your own comparison with other FTP games but please keep it in the spirit of only comparing what SWGOH does better than other games

First order thrawn?

Ok, I use first order for long time it didn't go well recently I started droping 100+ places in arena (not that I'm active too much but this wasn't like this before) I currently use Kru, fox, foo, fost, and kylo, everyone zetad and whit decent mods. So I have 7* thrawn today, is there any gude of how to use thrawn and mod him with first order, I heard about that and all I find is before Kru was released, help..?? Also I see on swgoh that are 435 squads with kru lead but I can't see what teams they use, help with that would be great too.

Does anyone use the Crouching Rancor app?

Hi all,

Been using the website a bit and didn't even know there was an app until earlier. Do people use it? Any good? Mods still do my absolute head in (I struggle with stats) and I imagine it will only get worse with the impending update!

Follow Up: Bastila Lead... OB vs. GK when going against Tri + Sith Trooper

TLDR: For those that read my previous post re: 3/4 star bastila full jedi team, blah blah blah... I can honestly say that the difference is negligible between OB and GK in the tank slot. The biggest thing is simply if gmY or ezra gets locked - if they do, it's a damned hard fight, and very likely lost as soon as that happens.

So, I've done about 20 arena battles each with GK and OB in the tank slot with this team (zBastila L, gmYzz, hYz, Ezraz + Tank) specifically against teams that had the triumvirate + sith trooper - it was a mix of EP and Traya leads, and when it was a traya lead, it was a mix of Thrawn or EP in the 5th slot (mostly thrawn). There are a few key points that I noticed:

  1. OB's Mind Tricks are phenomenal. Obviously the debuffs get cleansed and don't mean much, but the TM reduction if you get them quick, can mean getting someone down before they take a turn, and that's huge.
  2. GK's Lead the Charge was surprisingly not as great as I had hoped. The 30% less damage combined with Traya's debuffs were horrendous, and this didn't really make a huge difference in the battles at all, it was the equivalent of one basic attack from gmY or Ezra, really.
  3. There was really only two viable options for getting the opposing teams down before all the locks hit and my team stalled: A) Burn down Sith Trooper immediately, focus everything on him, and hope a few lucky crits hit; or B) Take away Sith Trooper's taunt, and try REALLY hard to get Sion down - more often than not this did not work, and just ended up being pointless, but a few times it worked.
  4. Never lost a fight against an EP lead in these scenarios, Traya's lead is just so vastly more powerful vs. the Jedi team.
  5. GK's auto-taunt provided quite a few moments where gmY or ezra likely would have gotten locked down, and that made the fight possible to win.

As noted in the TLDR above, I think in the end the difference is negligible, but I do still think that OB (especially with his taunt zeta) is slightly better overall, because Mind Tricks can turn the fight if you get lucky with the TMR.

Full disclosure: I am whaling out a bit on Bastila, never done that before, but I've been waiting for a Jedi rework forever, and this is as close as we're getting, so I'm spending some $$$, even though it makes me want to cut myself... that's why she's currently at 5 Star if anyone was looking.

Also, for those of you running Traya L + DNz, Sionz, Thrawnz, Sith Trooper - Not that I want to make my life harder, but definitely put your absolute fastest mods on Thrawn. His being able to push protection and get Sith Trooper or Sion to go again quickly made a bunch of fights impossible to win for me. The slower thrawn teams with this setup weren't as difficult.

Is B2 super droid any good?

Chances to attack whenever an enemy attacks, plus short cooldown for buff clearing AoE. Seems pretty useful despite rather low damage output.

What would be a good team for it?

Just wanted to shout out this small detail

I love how small yet impactful this one excerpt on Sion's AOE is.

Reduce the cooldown of this ability by 1 for each enemy without Pain

Without this line, Sion would be completely deadweight vs. Bastila, but with this small change, it just changes his identity. He goes from juggernaut bruiser to ceaselessly sending out waves and waves of buff clearing AOE's, helping check Bastila/GMY trying to establish/re-establish their bootleg ID.

Obviously, being a high damage undispellable taunter is preferable, but it gives him a secondary role/utility if he can't fulfill his first.

Cool stuff!

Raid rewards re-work

Since we've been getting some communication from the devs recently, maybe we can get some info on when the raid rewards will be getting the much anticipated fixes to remove challenge gear. I believe it's been 3-4 months since this was originally brought up and we haven't really gotten any updates on it.

Is anakin a good Jedi attacker? I also don’t know which Jedi to use

I recently got bastilla up to a decent gear and I haven’t really focused on Jedi so I don’t have many but I do have ones like bastilla, jolee bindo, ashoka tano, anakin (I just got him), lumanara (think that’s how you spell it), and Ezra. Who should I focus on in this small group of Jedi I have that are good for the bastilla lead?

TM glitch in arena?

So I'm doing arena and going for the 151 spot (far right group that I can face). I check em out and the characters are all the same as mine but mine are quite a bit faster. For a clear comparison:

Mine: ZzPalp G12 (Speed 209), Vader G12 (S 226), Tarkin G12 (S 204), Thrawn G12 (S 234), Sion 5* G11 (S 221) His: ZPalp G12 (Speed 204), Z(lead ability) Vader G12 (S 194), Tarkin G12 (S 201), Thrawn G12 (S 211), ZSion 6* G11 (S 204)

So I think okay, this should be a walk in the park. Start the match, my Vader goes first of course and I use force crush and apply the speed down to everyone on his team. Then out of no where without any of his guys going, all of my team has half of their TM, and his entire team has basically full TM. His entire team goes before any of mine does (except for my Vader of course). Ended up losing. What just happened? Am I not seeing something about a zetad ability?
