SWGoH 101: Completing Rey’s Hero’s Journey Event

Rey (Jedi Training), referenced as either RJT or JTR, is one of three Hero’s Journey characters in SWGoH and is an outstanding addition to any roster. Her event only appears a few times each year and has relatively tough requirements. This guide reviews the characters, the recommended gear, and tips for each Phase of the event to acquire JTR.

Characters and Recommended Gear:

JTR unlocks only at 7* and requires these specific characters for the event: Finn, Rey (Scavenger), BB-8, Veteran Smuggler Han Solo, and Veteran Smuggler Chewbacca.

The biggest hurdle for JTR’s event comes to farming the necessary characters.

  • Finn – Cantina Battles: Battle 3E (10 energy) and LS Battles: 7A Hard (20 energy)
  • Scav Rey – LS Battles: 2A Hard (12 energy) and DS Battles: 5D Hard (16 energy)
  • Vet Chewie – Cantina Battles: Battle 8F Normal (16 energy)
  • Vet Han – Cantina Battles: Battle 8G Normal (16 energy)
  • BB-8 – Pieces and Plans Legendary Event

Finn is on an LS node and a Cantina node, which allows his farm to continue fairly quickly. Scav Rey’s farm is a bit more difficult with two regular energy nodes, but both Finn and Scav Rey can also be found within the Guild Store which speeds up their farming.

Vet Han and Chewie are slightly more difficult to farm in that they only appear on high energy Cantina nodes and it takes some time for players with smaller rosters to have the full team strength to push through Stage 8 Cantina battles and complete both Vet Han and Vet Chewie’s nodes at 3* for quick simming. With both characters on Cantina nodes, farming them simultaneously becomes difficult. On average, with a single 100-crystal Cantina refresh each day, players can expect to take 3-4 months to farm both Vet Han and Vet Chewie to 7*. This time goes down by doing three Cantina refreshes daily, but that brings farm time only down to 62 days. The farm for the Vets can be further reduced by purchasing the Cantina Energy Deals when they appear, but they arrive sporadically and are only available for single days at a time. Preparation for JTR means sole focus on farming the Vet Han and Vet Chewie for a long time without deviation.

BB-8 is only acquired in his Pieces and Plans legendary event, which requires five First Order characters. The easiest team to acquire BB-8 is:

  • Kylo Ren (Unmasked) – G8
  • Kylo Ren – G9, or G8 if zeta’d
  • First Order Officer – G8
  • Captain Phasma – G8
  • First Order TIE Pilot or First Order Executioner – G10

BB8’s event is fairly simple and straightforward, but in preparing for both BB8 and JTR’s event, the farming could prove difficult given the number of characters farmed through only Cantina nodes.

Recommended Event Gear:

  • Finn G10
  • Scav Rey G10
  • BB8 G8
  • Vet Han G8
  • Vet Chewie G8, though G9 makes Phases 3, 4, and 5 much easier
  • No zetas needed
  • All characters at 7*
