HSTR Farming Guide – Phase 2: Leia Spam, Sith, Troopers, and others

Phase 2: Leia Spam, Sith, Troopers, and others

Note: As there are multiple options for Phase 2, it may not be necessary to farm and gear previously unused characters. These teams should be put together using what is already part of the roster.

Ideally, players should plan to utilize any 2 of the Phase 2 teams to get to around 2% damage per player. While RJT teams can also be used in Phase 2, the extra RJT teams not used in Phase 1 should be saved for Phase 4 against Nihilus again.

Leia Spam

Team: Ackbar-L, Princess Leia, GK, Thrawn, +Healer

  • One of the easier teams to put together for long-term players
  • No zetas are required, though zHYoda can be helpful
  • Optimal Healers: Hermit Yoda (ideal), Jawa Engineer, Visas Marr
  • Note: The key players on the team are Leia and GK. If neither are available, it may be better to reconsider the use of this team
  • Gear: G10 is the absolute minimum; all should be G11+ to reduce RNG attempts
  • Mods:

Sith

Team: zPalp-L, Vader, Nihilus, +2 Sith

  • If you are following the Arena meta, the team should be relatively easy to put together
  • Note: There are a variety of Sith/Empire that can get 1%+ in Phase 2. The key is to avoid using characters that will be needed in other phases
  • Optimal Sith: Nihilus, Palp, Vader, Sion, zSidious, zDooku, Sith Trooper, zSavage, Sith Assassin, Sith Marauder
  • Optimal Leads: zNihilus, zPalp, zVader
  • Zetas: If using Dooku, Sidious, or Savage, Unique zetas are required. Zetas required on the Sith lead utilized
  • Gear: G11 is the minimum; Sith will need to survive to get to 1%, so G11 is key
  • Mods: See individual modding guides: http://gaming-fans.com/star-wars-goh/mods/#BestMods

Troopers

Team: zVeers-L, Shoretrooper, Snowtrooper, Starck, Stromtrooper (or Death Trooper, if not using Chex Mix team for Phase 3)

  • Note: The ideal Troopers team will include Death Trooper, BUT Death Trooper is key to the Phase 3 Chex Mix team. Death Trooper should ONLY be used in this Phase 2 team if Chex Mix is not available.
  • Team should be relatively easy to put together due to Troopers’ events and DS TB requirements
  • Zetas: Veers’ zeta is required; the team will not function well without it. Starck’s zeta is optional.
  • Gear: G11 is the minimum to get full use out of the team
  • Mods: See individual modding guides: http://gaming-fans.com/star-wars-goh/mods/#BestMods

Phoenix

Team: zHera, zKanan, zZeb, zSabine, Ezra
Note: Phoenix require G11-12 and 4 zetas just to get near 1% in one phase. This team should only be utilized if a player has already invested heavily in Phoenix

  • Zetas: Kanan (required), Sabine, Zeb, and Hera in order of importance; all are needed to perform well in Phase 2, but Kanan’s is absolutely required
  • Gear: Gear 11 minimum, preferably G12; Phoenix are the deepest gear trench in the game and will take considerable investment to gear
  • Mods: See individual modding guides: http://gaming-fans.com/star-wars-goh/mods/#BestMods

Ewoks:

Team: zChirpa-L, Scout, Elder, Wicket, zLogray

  • Note: Ewoks are a niche faction, but can have surprising uses. This team should only be utilized if a player has already invested heavily in Ewoks
  • Zetas: Chirpa’s Lead and Logray’s Unique
  • Gear: Gear 11 minimum; G12 is strongly recommended
  • Mods: See individual modding guides: http://gaming-fans.com/star-wars-goh/mods/#BestMods
