SWGoH Community News – September 8, 2017


After a couple dry months earlier in the year, events are bursting everywhere in Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes! We also have a new reference section of the site available to assist players from all levels of experience.


New Characters!

Two new characters are coming to the game this month: Veteran Smugglers Han and Chewbacca. Separate from their other in-game namesakes, this pair arrives through brand new Marquee Events. They have excellent synergy with stacking stats and will also see great utilization within Territory Battles.


Smuggler’s Packs and Bundles

With the arrival of Veteran Smugglers Han and Chewbacca, a new pack is available as well as a new bundle to gain extra shards for these characters.

The Smuggler’s Return Packs are available individually for Han and Chewbacca at 1299 crystals a pull. With each pull there is an opportunity to gain 5, 7, 10, 12, 15, 20, 25, 50, 80, 145, 230, or 330 (7* character) shards. We’ve done full write-up on Should I Buy the packs to help you decide for yourself.

The Old Debts Double Bundle is available for $19.99 and offers 25 shards each of Han and Chewbacca, as well as credits, ability mats and gear necessary to bring each of them up to Level 50, Gear 5, and Ability Level 3 and even further. Combined with the shards gained from the Marquee Events, this pack could help bring both characters up to 4* and on your way towards 5* or higher.


SWGoH 101: Which Characters First?

An ongoing reference portal for Galaxy of Heroes, SWGoH 101 will be our portal to help players from all levels of experience improve their gameplay.

One of the most perplexing concepts, especially for newer players, is to know which characters should be farmed first and why. The Which Characters First reference guide goes through helping players from the very first levels of the game all the way through Level Cap determine which characters to farm across the game. The guide also helps players prepare for the different events and includes a “TL;DR” quick-list to easily see who to farm in order. The “Which Characters First” guides will be updated monthly, at the minimum, and any time major changes to the game occur. Check out the Which Characters First? reference guide today!


Territory Battles!

Unless you’ve been under a rock, you’re likely aware that Territory Battles have arrived to Galaxy of Heroes! We have done lots of in-depth guides on how to manage Territory Battles as well as overviews on which characters are required where, best mods to use, and how to best prepare. Have a look at our guides and help bring higher stars for your guilds!


Territory Battles Packs

Territory Battles requires a bunch of hard to promote characters across the different phases and there are some temporary packs and bundles available to help players star some required characters as well.

Hoth Rebel Soldier and Hoth Rebel Scout are a pair of characters that aren’t often farmed for other parts of the game, but are required for specific combat missions across the different phases. The Prepare for Battle Bundle offers 55 shards each of Hoth Rebel Soldier and Rebel Scout, and more interestingly, the Bundle also offers extremely valuable full pieces of gear that are necessary to bring characters up to the new Gear 12 as well as credits and ability mats. The bundle is $59.99 USD and will be available through 9/17/17.

Newly released just for Territory Battles is Captain Han Solo and he is required in specific combat missions which will be the only places to earn Rebel Officer Leia Organa shards.
