  • Once you’ve got your bearings the first thing you want to do is go through the menus and find the share icons that give gems. You can get the gems just by opening the link, you don’t need to actually post anything. This should give you at least 30.
  • If you’re buying any of the IAP the best deals would be the starter pack and monthly gems
  • Add as many friends to your friends list as you can. They give rewards daily!
  • Join a clan to receive up to 30,000 gold each day!
  • Consecutive Missions can give a lot of great rewards. See what’s available!
  • If you have the patience save every crystal/gem until you have enough for a spending event. Game of Dice gives out a lot of free gems and getting to 500 gems for a bonus 300-500 gems is really nice. Sometimes they give out 5* and other goodies instead.
  • In order of importance this is what you should grind for; Any level 3 dice, Decent skill cards, 4*+ character. After that fill in weakest areas.

It’s pretty easy to get a couple matches under your belt and some money in your wallet. If you make it through every step you are well on your way to master level. Sometimes they have events where you can win 100$ cash paypal for 10 consecutive wins. It’s a pretty sweet kickback for playing an app. Good luck out there!

Galactic War Tips and Strategy

galactic war

Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes has a survival or endurance mode called Galactic War. The holotable for Galactic War unlocks at level 40. Players will start on the left side of the screen with the first 3 chests shown. The opponent for each match is decided by your power level and the difficulty tier of each battle. The silver chests are the easiest, the purple are the hardest, and after every purple chests the enemy’s overall power level increases. Most of your opponents tend to have chewbacca or Dooku, especially in the early levels. Don’t be surprised to see several 4* characters as you progress through the stages. Take your time and work through each battle carefully and this should be some easy rewards.

Galactic War is a really cool endurance/survival mode that ensures that your extra characters are still pretty useful. While tough, the key to completing Galactic War is using your healers wisely and sparingly. A team of 3 healers can take out most of the map but if their cooldowns aren’t reset for the final 3 battles don’t be surprised to wipe out. There is no guarantee that the enemies will be near your level, only that they will be near your power. This also doesn’t take into account the enemy team’s synergy. It is possible to come across some truly tough foes. If any of your characters die, they will be unusable until the next Galactic War. Any damage suffered or cooldowns used will remain after every fight. However, this also works in your favor.  Enemy teams will follow the same rules. Try using a shock team to soften up a tough foe when you need to heal before going in blasters blazing!

War Shipments

Galactic War Shipments

As you battle through the Galactic War levels you will begin to earn War Tokens which can be redeemed for another set of unique shipments. You may be wondering which shipments to purchase from the Galactic War shipments section on the bottom right. Unfortunately, there aren’t too many great characters in here. Luminara would be the best to go for at first as she will be a powerful asset in PvE and possibly PvP depending on your current team composition. Most of the other shipments are fillers for type specific teams and should be taken at your best judgement. Remember that the rewards here also reset every 6 hours which means you can possibly get 15 of whichever shard every day.

Squad Arena Tips and Tricks

Squad Arena

The bread and butter of Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes like most other team building/strategy games in this genre is the PvP. You progress up a ladder based ranking system earning different rewards for each tier you finish in. You can either control the battles manually or use auto-battle. The team that you fight with will be the team that defends against other players. The ladder you are in is based on when you started playing and other players in your region. There’s no exact way to figure out your ladder placement yet.

There are a couple gripes I have with the ladder system in Galaxy of Heroes that could easily be fixed. Latecomers are at a pretty bad disadvantage. First you only get 5 attempts at the ladder at a time which wouldn’t be so bad in and of itself, but even if you drop 100$-200$ on the cash shop and have a vastly higher power number than people several hundred ranks above you it will only let you battle so many ranks above you. IE, to go from rank 120 to rank 5 will take more than 5 attempts as you can only battle 15-25 ranks higher even if you are stronger than everyone up to rank 6. This means you’ll have to drop several hundred gems just to find your true ranking quickly. There is no way to issue a challenge to other players either.

Also, instead of dropping a rank when you lose to a challenger you will trade ranks instead. This means that you can go from rank 5 to 50 while players who haven’t played in days just sit at their rank untouched if no one attacks them. With a couple unlucky challenges you can be set rather far back. If you’re nearing the time limit for the day but want to hold your position “lock” yourself in place by battling someone at <10 minutes. When you’re in combat no one else can challenge you. By sitting an opponent at low health you can make sure that any challenges have to come early.

Aim for the squishy attackers first. When you outnumber your opponent it is a lot easier to win. Dooku is always a good target to kill first, especially if you have the burst damage. Usually having the only Dooku will let you gain the edge in combat. Beware of Old Ben and consider using a ability block on him to mess up the first round of shenanigans. That should give an edge over Old Ben teams but make sure you kill him later if you can. When he dies he buffs his entire team and is rather weak otherwise. Barriss’s heal equilibrium will ignore health debuffs. This can either be great or terrible for you depending on which side of the fence you find yourself on. Try to burst opponents out before her turn, and save her for last. She’s really weak and slow otherwise.
Each day you’ll gain rewards from your current ranking on the leaderboards. These can be used to buy shards for exclusive characters. My personal opinion is to aim high as most of the value rests with the 80 shard characters. Sidious is normally the first one purchased and maxed as he has fantastic PvP potential. If you arere in top spots in rankings it will be rather easy to purchase 10 shards a day making it only 8 days to unlock him.

The rewards are rather nice but due to the time/investment it takes to climb the leaderboard I wouldn’t recommend going at it hardcore except for the wisest of Jedi or the most malicious of Sith. It’s a very expensive pay to win process and the resulting 200-300 gems from being in first is piss poor. Spend your money on gems/crystals for XP if you’re looking to rank high the character packs won’t beat a good rerolled higher level account with starters.
