SWGoH: One Famous Wookie – Chewbacca Event Live Blog

SWGoH - Chewbacca

The first Legendary Event in Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes for 2018 is finally upon us as One Famous Wookie will give players the chance to unlock Rebel Chewbacca. The first Legendary Event in SWGoH since Rey’s Hero’s Journey in December 2017 allowed us to unlock Rey (Jedi Training) for the first time, players will need to use five Bounty Hunters to capture the wookie hero of the Original Trilogy who also appeared in Episode III and briefly in the Clone Wars.

For the One Famous Wookie event our Director of Content will live blog his efforts. Much like his live blog of the Grand Admiral Thrawn, RJT and BB-8 events, LJ will detail the character levels, gear levels, mods, mod types and mod levels for each of the five toons used in the event to (hopefully) unlock Rebel Chewbacca.

Details of the Live Blog attempts will be posted below. Keep checking back and hit “refresh” in your browser for updates to this page with all details below and be sure to add your comments below or Tweet them to @GamingFansDFN on your experiences as well.



 

One Famous Wookie – Attempt #1

IG-88 - SWGoHFirst off, all of this will take place on my personal account, not the GameChangers account for reference. I am starting this event without mods on my Bounty Hunters. I am fully aware of the fact that my mods and gear levels are not attainable by all players and I apologize if you cannot relate. I feel that this example will show players the value of mods in the game and we here at Gaming-fans.com are happy to assist if you need help modding SWGoH characters. I can tell you that I have been saving up all gear, mod slicing materials and have better mods in reserve if needed to ensure that this event is a success in the end.

Characters:

  • Bossk (Leader) – GP 19,380 – Gear 11 w/5 pieces – NO MODS – Speed 151, Health 22,544, Protection 30,429, CD 150% – Zeta on Leader ability, all abilities maxed except for Trandoshan Rage
  • Boba Fett – GP 18,012 – Gear 12 w/3 pieces – 4 Critical Damage & 2 Health mods with 5-dots (3 blue, 2 green, 1 gray) – Speed 147, CC 41.29%, CD 150%, Potency 49% – all abilities maxed except for Bounty Hunter’s Resolve
  • IG-88 – GP 17,017 – Gear 12 w/2 pieces – 4 Critical Damage & 2 Potency mods with 5-dots (3 blue, 2 green, 1 gray) – Speed 127, CC 44.42%, CD 150%, Potency 26% – all abilities maxed except for Bounty Hunter’s Resolve
  • Zam Wesell – GP 15,807 – Gear 10 w/5 pieces – 4 Speed & 2 Potency mods, all with 5-dots (2 purple, 1 blue, 2 green, 1 gray) – Speed 157, Potency 27% – all abilities maxed except for Shapeshifter
  • Dengar – GP 15,453 – Gear 10 w/3 pieces – 4 Potency & 2 Critical Chance mods, 5 with 5-dots (3 gold, 2 purple, 1 blue) and a 4-dot green mod – Speed 103, CC 30%, CD 150%, Potency 26% – all abilities maxed except for Grizzled Veteran
  • If needed – Cad Bane – GP 17,587 – Gear 11 w/2 pieces – 2 Health, 2 Potency & 2 Defense mods, all 5-dots (1 gold, 1 purple, 2 blue, 2 green) – Speed 187, CC 44.6%, CD 186%, Potency 45.15% – all abilities maxed

5:10 am ET

Because I have a full day I have to get up early to get my first few attempts in for the community. I will likely not be able to actually open Chewie until later in the day, but I am looking to give the SWGoH community as much as I can. I will be online between 5 and 5:15 am ET to start the Live Blog to unlock Chewbacca.

Tier I – Ok, to start, the graphics and scene are great. Love the Cloud City use. Tier I was almost over with a single Boba Fett AOE – now on to Tier II.

Tier II – Tier II was more of the same – for this crew VERY easy.

Tier III – My lack of Speed is starting to catch up with me here. IG-88 is stunned immediately and I take a few hits to start, however a few Thermal Detonators later and all is well. On to Tier IV.

Tier IV – Very similar to Tier III, I may have performed better. Took a few hits but the gear strength of my characters is ensuring the early battles are not even close.

Tier V – Wow, this just got a bit more real. Before I even take a turn, Zam Wesell is dead and after a barrage of fire from these Rebel scum so is Bossk. My debuffs will not stick and down goes IG-88 followed by Boba and finally Dengar. I am not surprised, but dang those mods make a difference…

With that, I will add my regular mods to all five of my Bounty Hunters and continue below.

 

One Famous Wookie – Attempt #2

Dengar - SWGoHOkay, since Attempt #1 was not be a success (as expected), I will have my standard mods on my Bounty Hunters for the second attempt, but I am not changing any of the gear levels. I have the materials needed to move Bossk to Gear 12 and Zam Wesell to Gear 11, and I have the ability to add up to two Zeta abilities if absolutely necessary, but I hope to not need these for this event. In addition, my Arena and HSTR character mods are by far my best, so if needed I can upgrade things yet again. Here is what we are looking at in terms of the stats of my Bounty Hunters with mods on them:

Characters:

  • Bossk (Leader) – GP 20,754 – Gear 11 w/5 pieces – 6 Health mods with 5-dots (1 gold, 1 purple, 2 blue, 2 green) – Speed 225, Health 32,000, Protection 41,366, CD 150% – Zeta on Leader ability, all abilities maxed except for Trandoshan Rage
  • Boba Fett – GP 19,272 – Gear 12 w/3 pieces – 4 Critical Damage & 2 Health mods with 5-dots (3 blue, 2 green, 1 gray) – Speed 208, CC 60.83%, CD 180%, Potency 82.43% – all abilities maxed except for Bounty Hunter’s Resolve
  • IG-88 – GP 18,346 – Gear 12 w/2 pieces – 4 Critical Damage & 2 Potency mods with 5-dots (3 blue, 2 green, 1 gray) – Speed 192, CC 60.83%, CD 180%, Potency 82.43% – all abilities maxed except for Bounty Hunter’s Resolve
  • Zam Wesell – GP 16,978 – Gear 10 w/5 pieces – 4 Speed & 2 Potency mods, all with 5-dots (2 purple, 1 blue, 2 green, 1 gray) – Speed 248, Potency 72.73% – all abilities maxed except for Shapeshifter
  • Dengar – GP 16,854 – Gear 10 w/3 pieces – 4 Potency & 2 Critical Chance mods, 5 with 5-dots (3 gold, 2 purple, 1 blue) and a 4-dot green mod – Speed 179, CC 60.96%, CD 150%, Potency 89.53% – all abilities maxed except for Grizzled Veteran
  • If needed – Cad Bane – GP 17,587 – Gear 11 w/2 pieces – 2 Health, 2 Potency & 2 Defense mods, all 5-dots (1 gold, 1 purple, 2 blue, 2 green) – Speed 187, CC 44.6%, CD 186%, Potency 45.15% – all abilities maxed

Results:

5:27 am ET

Ok, lunches are packed, I finally have some coffee and a breakfast sandwich and I am equipping mods again. We’ll be fighting Tier V again shortly.

Tier V – Even with my mods equipped these Rebels are fast! Dengar is stunned and Zam places he detonators, now Dengar is up. Boba nearly took out ROLO himself before a little help from his friends, now to focus on the rest. Zam and Dengar need more Potency in this event – neither are getting debuffs to stick well enough IMO. Zam is at 72.73% and Dengar 89.53% – and this is Tier V!

Lando and R2 are out of the way, now it is Han and Chewie remaining and someone should have told Han the odds since they were not good. Moving on to Tier VI.

5:35 am ET

Tier VI – Despite 248 Speed on Zam Wesell, the Rebels took 7-8 turns before I even got started and Bossk is stunned with almost all Protection gone. Zam lands 2 of 5 detonators and you can see where this one is going… Han’s counters and guarded assists are killing me – literally (in-game). IG-88 is down, Boba is at half health, Bossk stunned – this is not good. I just landed a few detonators and had Zam Spam the Rebels (Zam Spam – that one is catchy), but traded out Lando for Bossk – not a good deal IMO. One more shot from Zam and the Guarded blue buff shows its teeth and the assists and quick Rebels finish me off.

5:40 am ET

So here is where real life kicks in. I have a full, long day ahead of me that I cannot really work around. My hope it to be fighting again by 4 or 4:30 pm ET. If there is one takeaway from this event it is this – it is HARD. If you like a good challenge you are in the right place. Start switching mods around – that is what I am going to do. Good luck!

 

 

One Famous Wookie – Attempt #3

Dengar - SWGoHSo far this is going as I expected. I will gear up a bit after a week of gear hoarding and try a few new mods and will be back online as soon as I can.

Here is what I plan to use in terms of the stats of my Bounty Hunters with mods on them:

Characters:

  • Bossk (Leader) – GP 21,277 – Gear 12 w/1 piece – 4 Health mods with 5-dots (1 gold, 2 blue, 1 green) and 2 Defense mods (1 w/6-dots, 1 gold) – Speed 227, Health 35,133, Protection 53,862, CD 150% – Zeta on Leader ability, all abilities maxed except for Trandoshan Rage
  • Boba Fett – GP 19,546 – Gear 12 w/3 pieces – 4 Critical Damage & 2 Critical Chance mods with 5-dots (3 gold, 2 purple, 1 blue) – Speed 242, CC 65.55%, CD 216%, Potency 78.82% – all abilities maxed except for Bounty Hunter’s Resolve
  • IG-88 – GP 18,415 – Gear 12 w/2 pieces – 4 Critical Damage & 2 Potency mods with 5-dots (2 gold, 1 purple, 3 green) – Speed 210, CC 59.15%, CD 216%, Potency 46.78% – all abilities maxed except for Bounty Hunter’s Resolve
  • Zam Wesell – GP 17,551 – Gear 11 w/2 pieces – 4 Speed & 2 Potency mods, all with 5-dots (2 gold, 4 purple) – Speed 267, Potency 92.02% – all abilities maxed except for Shapeshifter
  • Dengar – GP 17,031 – Gear 10 w/5 pieces – 4 Potency & 2 Critical Chance mods, all with 5-dots (3 gold, 3 purple) – Speed 194, CC 56.81%, CD 186%, Potency 86.13% – all abilities maxed except for Grizzled Veteran
  • If needed – Cad Bane – GP 17,587 – Gear 11 w/2 pieces – 2 Health, 2 Potency & 2 Defense mods, all 5-dots (1 gold, 1 purple, 2 blue, 2 green) – Speed 187, CC 44.6%, CD 186%, Potency 45.15% – all abilities maxed

Results:

5:01 pm ET

Alright, it has been a long day, but I am back online and ready to fight soon. I have added a lot of Speed but still I am not using my Arena mods. RL is catching up again – I may not be able to complete this until tonight. We will see.

Tier VI – Started this off with a LOT more Speed (88 Speed added across 5 toons) and the dividends were immediate. Now focusing first on Lando, because he does NOT have Chewie’s Guard on him, Zam landed three thermal detonators and I was able to use Bossk’s attack to call all other Bounty Hunters to take him out fast. Now focusing on Chewbacca, Zam and Dengar are spamming the Rebels with more detonators. IG-88 is down already (wow this is tough!) and Chewbacca just took out Bossk. Wow, this just got derailed – gotta try again I guess…

Tier VI – I am starting to get discouraged after seeing how this has progressed. Another fight, another loss with the stats above. Lucky for me I have been hoarding gear, mod slicing materials and more. Time to put some to use…

 

 

One Famous Wookie – Attempt #4

We are now at the point where this is even harder than I expected. I have added a few more gear pieces and sliced a few mods to improve my stats – let’s see if this is enough to at least get through Tier 6 this time…

Here are the stats of my Bounty Hunters in Attempt #4:

Characters:

  • Bossk (Leader) – GP 21,622 – Gear 12 w/2 pieces – 1 Health mods with 6-dots and 3 with 5-dots (2 purple, 1 blue) and 2 Defense mods (1 w/6-dots, 1 gold) – Speed 234, Health 41,383, Protection 53,862, CD 150% – Zeta on Leader ability, all abilities maxed except for Trandoshan Rage
  • Boba Fett – GP 19,546 – Gear 12 w/3 pieces – 4 Critical Damage & 2 Critical Chance mods with 5-dots (3 gold, 2 purple, 1 blue) – Speed 242, CC 65.55%, CD 216%, Potency 78.82% – all abilities maxed except for Bounty Hunter’s Resolve
  • IG-88 – GP 18,460 – Gear 12 w/2 pieces – 4 Critical Damage & 2 Potency mods, 1 with 6-dots, 5 with 5-dots (1 gold, 1 purple, 3 green) – Speed 211, CC 59.42%, CD 216%, Potency 46.78% – all abilities maxed except for Bounty Hunter’s Resolve
  • Zam Wesell – GP 17,551 – Gear 11 w/3 pieces – 4 Speed & 2 Potency mods, all with 5-dots (2 gold, 4 purple) – Speed 267, Potency 92.02% – all abilities maxed except for Shapeshifter
  • Dengar – GP 17,319 – Gear 10 w/5 pieces – 4 Potency & 2 Critical Chance mods, all with 5-dots (3 gold, 2 purple, 1 green) – Speed 197, CC 56.57%, CD 186%, Potency 86.13% – all abilities maxed except for Grizzled Veteran
  • If needed – Cad Bane – GP 17,587 – Gear 11 w/2 pieces – 2 Health, 2 Potency & 2 Defense mods, all 5-dots (1 gold, 1 purple, 2 blue, 2 green) – Speed 187, CC 44.6%, CD 186%, Potency 45.15% – all abilities maxed

Results:

5:25 pm ET

Tier VI – Started this off with a little more speed and better survivability, especially on Bossk. Bossk gets stunned right away and I take a lot of hits. IG-88’s AoE gets him killed (dumb move on my part), but the detonators lead to Zam killing Lando. Detonators Boba’s Execute special take out Chewie and I am up 4 to 3. Now with Guard no longer in play I can attack anyone. Zam takes out Leia and now I can focus on Han Solo with a 4 on 2 battle. R2 puts Stealth on Han (who is in yellow) so I need to go after the astromech now. A few shots later and Tier VI is done with a win. Now on to Tier VII…

Tier VII – Honestly, I see no chance in my beating this for a couple of days. I have a lot of crystals and little tolerance for losing in SWGoH, so I will get there even if $$$ is the key. I have to run for family reasons, I will be back online later tonight to try this out…

 

 

One Famous Wookie – Attempt #5

First off, my apologies to anyone who has been waiting for updates today. I had a prior (work) engagement today before the event was announced, and then a busy evening as well with both kids in youth sports. It is now 10:15 pm ET and I still have not attempted Tier 7 which I expect to be incredibly hard given what I have already experienced.

I will put my Arena mods on the characters tomorrow morning but I added some gear to help strengthen the team. Here are the stats of my Bounty Hunters in Attempt #5:

Characters:

  • Bossk (Leader) – GP 21,622 – Gear 12 w/2 pieces – 2 mods with 6-dots and 4 with 5-dots (1 gold, 2 purple, 1 blue) – Speed 234, Health 41,383, Protection 53,862, CD 150% – Zeta on Leader ability, all abilities maxed except for Trandoshan Rage
  • Boba Fett – GP 19,593 – Gear 12 w/3 pieces – 4 Critical Damage & 2 Critical Chance mods with 5-dots (4 gold, 2 purple) – Speed 242, CC 65.55%, CD 216%, Potency 80.89% – all abilities maxed except for Bounty Hunter’s Resolve
  • IG-88 – GP 18,780 – Gear 12 w/2 pieces – 4 Critical Damage & 2 Potency mods, 1 with 6-dots, 5 with 5-dots (1 gold, 1 purple, 3 green) – Speed 240, CC 60.91%, CD 216%, Potency 45.89% – all abilities maxed except for Bounty Hunter’s Resolve
  • Zam Wesell – GP 18,159 – Gear 11 w/3 pieces – 4 Speed & 2 Potency mods, all with 5-dots (4 gold, 2 purple) – Speed 273, Potency 90.3% – all abilities maxed except for Shapeshifter
  • Dengar – GP 18,310 – Gear 11 w/4 pieces – 4 Potency & 2 Critical Chance mods, all with 5-dots (3 gold, 2 purple, 1 blue) – Speed 203, CC 56.57%, CD 186%, Potency 98.13% – all abilities maxed except for Grizzled Veteran
  • If needed – Cad Bane – GP 17,587 – Gear 11 w/2 pieces – 2 Health, 2 Potency & 2 Defense mods, all 5-dots (1 gold, 1 purple, 2 blue, 2 green) – Speed 187, CC 44.6%, CD 186%, Potency 45.15% – all abilities maxed

Results:

10:25 pm ET

Tier VII – I upped the gear on Dengar and sliced a few mods then moved a few more mods around. IG-88 should be MUCH more effective now going from 211 to 240 speed. While both are at Gear 11 now, Zam and Dengar are really holding me back because they cannot equip 6-dot mods (only at gear 12). I am going to fight this and see how it goes…

I fought this twice to see how it would go and the RNG was NOT on my side in the first try. I started to get a little discouraged so I tried again. In the second attempt they took out Zam right away and Boba was down a revive and in the yellow, but they made the mistake of NOT finishing him off. R2-D2 put Stealth on his Rebel friends so I teed off on him and finally took him out. After losing IG-88 I took down Lando leaving me with a close 3 versus 3. After the stealth wore off of Chewie I focused on him, finally getting Boba’s special to take him out. Then Bossk’s special called all Bounty Hunter allies to assist to defeat Leia leaving Han Solo against my three. Again, somebody should have told him the odds were in my favor.

 

With Chewie unlocked (and now I have him at 7-stars), here is my best mods for Chewbacca article that I wrote after testing him out in the GameChangers environment.

 

Also, in case you missed it, here is AhnaldT101’s unlocking 7-star Chewbacca for FTP video.
