  1. If you’re having trouble beating Yoda at level 5, make sure you’re not using Lumi’s heal. Since it is heal-over-time, Yoda steals it and heals himself, wiping out all the damage you’ve done. Use JC, Bariss, etc to heal, and Yoda can’t steal it. Then he’s pretty easy to beat. You just have to be patient – don’t waste your strong attacks when he has Foresight.

    yes the Yoda event refreshes every coutlet months I think. took me a while but got him and he is very easy to level gear up surprisingly. im working on getting the next set of shards soon

    5
  3. In my squad arena 38lvl player has got 6* Yoda, how is that possible?

    0
    • That seems very unlikely. Even if he did have 6* Jedi’s, beating Yoda is difficult. Maybe the difficulty adjusts according to player level? Not really sure.

      0
      • He did have a 4 star Jedi at that time, now he’s lvl48 with 7*Yoda and with only 1 Jedi with 5*, other are 4* or lower. Reported that player but it seams Devs are giving sh**

        0
    • Does the Yoda event reset every time or not, if not, I have to get a lot of Jedi shards to get six stars

      4
    • There used to be a glitch, I think it was with Anakin, and players were able to get more shards than they deserved.

    • He bought the data card pack

  4. DAMN IT EA NOW WHEN i collected five 7 star jedi you didn’t give me yoda event, but i f****g bet if i didn’t you would have given it -.-‘ anyway,Guys, when does the event come back?

    0
    • The event comes back in 8d 15h. So it’s friday the 13th I’m afraid.

    • Trollface Killa

      Toni, you are an idiot. The Yoda event happens at the same time for everyone. EA doesn’t choose whether or not to give someone the event…

  5. Guys, when does the event comes back???

  6. When does the event for yoda return? Does anyone know?

  7. Where did the grand master go?

    Yoda got hit hard this past update. Both of his moves dropped hardcore damage. His masterstroke hits like a feather duster, his tenacity up bonus has been mitigated by qui-gon. His ability was to make it so that Jedi would NOT be affected by the tons of anti-Jedi buffs.

    Well today my 7 star maxed level 76 Yoda got demoted for a 6 star royal guard because he is completely useless now! His damage move unstoppable force ALSO got nerfed. He hits like a limp noodle and lost his ONLY redeeming quality which was protecting other Jedi from debuffs. Sad to say this little guy got nerfed too hard to be competitive in the arena anymore.

    R.I.P. Yoda

  8. I’m a f2p-player and wondering which jedi characters I should unlock and use to get this little green dude.

    At the moment I have Lumi and JC at 7*, QGJ at 5*, Ahsoka (and Jedi Knight Guardian) at 3*. I want to use my Cantina credits for QGJ (not Ashoka/JKG).

    Should I continue to farm shards for Ahsoka and/or JKG or should I start farming Mace, old Ben, Barriss or even go for Anakin?

    0
    • Don’t do qg Ashoka is so much better and do eth Kota from arena shipments that’s how I did it and I am FTP so my 5 were Luminara, Ahsoka, Jedi Consulate, Koth, old Ben. Old ben you can just sim one of the cantina levels and get his shards and on top of it get the credits to get Ahsoka

      5
      • Dude, QGJ is the shit. Is remove abilities that give you an attack bonus and is leader abilitie are great.I mean, Ashoka is ok, but she’s not even half good than QGJ.

        0
  9. Is it legit that masterstroke does 7k damage???? Can someone verify this?!?!

    0
  10. I have fought against and with him, and my geo soldier knocked him out immediately against him and if he didn’t ig88 did, and with him, he just isn’t good without a jedi team which wouldnt be nearly as good as my current. And I’m only lvl 70 and like 1500 in arena.

    2
    • Would have smashed your droids with yoda…. and what slow ass team were you fighting against. Was it like “I just woke up yoda”? 190 arena

      4
  11. I want to get him but I’m missing one Jedi to take to 5*s.
    So should I take Old Ben or Mace Windu?

    0
  12. I love this guy. I think, he is really awesome in gw. I use 6* Yoda, 7* QGJ, 7* Luminara, 7* JD and 6* Ashoka – looking forward for the next event to upgrade Yoda. But right now, I often only need these toons to finish Galactic War. His meditation is indispensable against Sidious, Phasma, Dooku and these guys.
    But in PvP I think, that he doesnt scare most People. If I have him in my squad (using an all jedi team) I lose a lot of Rankingpoints by getting attacked very often, so I go back to Dark Side toons.
    Finally 5 for Gw
    And only 3.5 for PvP

    4
    • i was having the problem of being attacked a lot when yoda was 6*… As soon as I got him to 7* my rank stayed up. Now im consistently top 20 with qgj, yoda, Ahsoka, lumi and han. Surprisingly effective combo. By having consistent heals and immunity to negative effects, Han stays alive long enough to give me permanent turn meter control. This is at max level full 7* teams

      0
      • I’m close to having this exact team. I’m curious, has this squad held up in the new meta? I recently went up against a Jedi team, put Dooku as lead (his stuns plus evasion/offense up buff make him valuable even at 5*). I just stunned every Jedi and won handedly. I really like Ahsoka’s new reworking though, but she’s still more useful in GW than Arena. I have two gear slots left which will boost her damage though, and I have yet to get her to 7* from 6, so we’ll see, she may yet be more valuable.

        0
  13. Im a little torned over Yoda. He is great fun to play and offers a lot in pvp offense. On the other hand, how hard is offense? He completely neutralizes a lot of popular debuffers and his chance to speed down is handy but not totally reliable. He does not scare me in defense, allthough Id put him in the second tier. Maybe the new meta will change that. He did put old Ben on the retirement home.

    For gw he is not very usefull. I often play him on one node to utilize his battle meditation with great success. However the six turn cd makes him a bench warmer after that. His cd over all is kind of a bust for him in pve.

    I rate him 5* for pvp offense for his utility, decent damage and fun to play.
    I rate him 4* for pvp defense. All in all 4-4,5 for pvp.
    I rate him slightly below 4 for gw.
    Total 4*

    4
    • Not very useful in gw?? Brother, you are not using him correctly. If they have an aoe toon, pop battle med off the bat, if they don’t, use his basic and try to get foresight for the whole team on 2nd turn. By the time you get to gw 5-6, by popping battle meditation right away the cool down is always ready for next fight. I rarely use masterstroke, usually only to finish off a toon when someone else has taunt up. His value is battle meditation, his stun on anyone below 50%, and his turn meter reduction. Masterstroke is fun, but for gw his ability to dictate how the match goes is much more useful. For instance, all your protection is gone and you’re down to your team, and just 5’s who you haven’t touched yet. Yoda pops battle med with foresight up, not only does that give you 5 free shots at him but it also prevents 5’s from slowing you and getting extra shots. Extremely valuable to making sure you go into to next round fresh without have to burn a cool down on lumi’s heal. And that’s just a scenario off the top of my head. Yoda is easily, by far the most valuable asset for gw. Before I got him, I was finishing gw maybe every other day, after, I have not lost a single gw. And I was using him right away, at 5*. He is now maxed at 80, 7*, g10. He is also in my arena team Dooku lead, poggle, 86, lumi, and yoda. Well worth the grind, one of the most versitile toons in the game.

      5
  14. Im using 6* Lumi, 6* Consular, 5* QGJ, 5* Mace, and 5* Eeth Koth. Lumi has gear level 6, while the rest have level 5. Any strategy on how to beat Yoda on level 5? because ive tried countless times and keep getting beat.

    0
    • I should probably also mention they are all level 64. So close to getting those 45 shards to unlock, but yet so far :(

      0
    • Upgrade their gear bro. I have maxed levels and gear with the same people all at 7* (except I use ahsoka instead of mace) and it is still really hard. Don’t try too hard or spend too much money because yoda is really not that great

      0
      • I find it easier to level up stars than to level up gear. Thats why their gear level is still in blue. Ima a f2p player. But thats a good point! I ended up unlocking him with the squad that i had. Only took about a whole day haha.

        0
    • I beat yoda first time on level 5 with 7* lumi 5* consular 5* QGJ 5*Asoka 5* Ben mind you all gear is level 6 but all of these are easy to farm and relatively easy to gear. I have koth and Mace but don’t rate either of them they just lack to much in my opinion :)

      0
  15. Love this event, it gives out plenty of purple gems and loot, I only got half way because two of my Jedi were only 3* but looking forward to it coming round again

    5
  16. For those interested in including him into Arena PvP team :
    On defense,
    AI starts with Unstoppable Force, besides damage, it removes turn meter. AI never attacks my RG which is the only toon I don’t mind it to attack. So the attack ends up removing turn meter from one of my fast DPS (QGJ, Rey, GS, Leia, Dooku)
    Whenever any buff, AI proceeds with stealing buffs. If you don’t kill Yoda, it will pass buffs onto party together with tenacity up and it’s game over.

    On attack, I’d personally start with Mediation when facing Sid, Dooku or other stunners. But I might also try to remove turn meter from Rey and slightly lower her health (if RG is there). Yoda is really situational, and a lot of fun.

    Overall, AI doesn’t do a bad job on defense with Yoda. It doesn’t use Yofa stupidly like with all other toons (today I had enemy Dooku starting with a stun on my RG and completely ignoring my Jedis and Rey, lol).

    5
    • In your opinion where dose yoda fit into my team…. 7* lumi 5* consular 5* Asoka 5* QGJ 5* old Ben. I beileve old Ben is the replacement as his damage is not great even with level 6 gear, seems everyone has sence to not kill him while others are alive even the Ai lol Although old Ben ability lock has got me out-of some sticky situations. Id be interested to know your thoughts

  17. It was nice I got him on my first try on getting my 7 star yoda, he was with lumi and mace, I took out lumi and mace and then took out yoda I only loss lumi, when yoda was already half dead, I just used jedi consular, lumi, Barris Offee (lead), kit fisto, and quigon, that was my team that did the job pretty easy

  18. FOR ANYONE/EVERYONE:
    Grand Master Yoda is definetly NOT a “Pay 2 Play” character. I haven’t spent a single DIME on the game and I have, not one, not two, but SIX, 5 Star Jedi, not even including Yoda! I was able to acquire all these Jedi by simply farming and grinding! Just follow these steps every morning (or whenever you play) and you will have yourself FIVE, 5 Star Jedi, within 1 to 1 and a half months.

    Step One – Log in everyday and complete the daily activities to get all 52 Crystals.

    Step Two – Go to the Cantina Battle and find Obi-Wan Kenobi’s level. (It’s like B-G or something) And farm him as much and you can! Oh and make sure that you’re Cantina energy never reaches its maximum so you never waste any minutes!

    Step Three – Use Cantina Tokens to buy QGJ or Ahsoka. (QGJ is much, much better)

    Step Four – In the campaign battles, find the Jedi Counselor’s Hardmode levels and farm all of those every day!

    Step Five – Try to rank in the top 2,500 everyday to get the reward of 300 Arena credits and combined with your daily activities reward, you will have enough to buy 5, Eath Koth shards, or “The Super Anti-Droid” Jedi

    And last but for sure not the least! – Try to go as far as possible in the galactic war so you can buy 5 Luninara Unduli shards! (Remember, if you are losing a GW battle, click ‘Retreat’ in the setting to quickly escape the battle and be able to redo the battle like it never happened. :D)

    So! If you log on everyday and follow these pretty simple steps, ALL ‘Free to Play’ Playera can get their very own, 5 STAR GRAND MASTER YODA!

    Hoped you enjoyed this (MASSIVE sorry!) Article.

    • I hate you. So jealous… So…

      Fill me the hell in, yoda fights been messing me up. Missed the first event without 5 jedi, flopped the second with half the Jedi at 3* or less.

      Each fight, each time gives you 25???? I NEED to know!

      0
      • At the 5th Yoda Battle it gives you 45 shards and the next 85 then the last battle it gives you 100 shards. But hey! Next time you’ll get him. There’s another event now by the way so start farming!!

        0
        • Cool, thanks. Been wondering. Today is my third shot at Yoda, mildly annoyed that I can’t unlock him yet.

          Thanks for the review

  19. If you want to build an all-Jedi team, yoda is a must to help counter all the popular anti-Jedi toons (sid, dooku, etc). Tenacity buff on turn one counters dooku/Daka stuns, Poe debuff, phasma slow, Sid burn, etc… All of which are popular. Not to mention his basic attack helps him and possibly your whole team avoid damage. He makes buffers like asajj and savage more of an opportunity then a threat. Learn to use him in the best way based on your opponent, and you will have a ton of success.

  20. I just got the little dude yesterday and went ape shit crazy. I had play the little bastard about twenty (I’m guessing) before FINALLY beating him in stage 5 and getting the 45 shards I needed. I farmed him up to level 5 in less than a day which pleasantly surprised me, but I don’t really consider him a strong character thus far. He’s got a 2857 power rating and I’ve got all of his attacks and abilities at level 3. I will update this in a week or so as I plan upgrading him as my number 1 priority right now, just because I love the character. I’ve also found that thus far, he has pretty good survivability against the competition I’ve pitted him against ( a few cantina battles and low stage galactic war battles). In case you’re wondering, I used 5 star Qui Gon, Ahsoka Tano, Jedi Consular, Kit Fisto (leader), and a 6 star Luminara Unduli. Not the greatest team, but I didn’t really concentrate on sharding up Jedis until they dropped this completion on us last month. I recommend whatever team you use, get alot of healers, don’t WASTE special attacks on Yoda when he has foresight (eyeball), and basically just weather the guy out. I got creamed by him a ton of times until I finally got a line up I liked. I also used the Jedi Knight Guardian in place of Qui Gon because mine is WEAK or Ahsoka Tano- another softy, who also cannot heal herself effectively against Yoda because she can’t heal when her strikes don’t cause damage (you’ll see what I mean). Overall, I’m glad I got this guy and I’ll update this in a week or so if I remember, after pimping him out more.

    4
    • I mean I used JKG in place of Ahsoka or Qui Gon in different stages until finally settling on Qui Gon to beat Yoda. The Guardian doesn’t have enough offense to do much damage to Yoda who takes a TON damage to beat, but if you got a Mace or Plo Koon then maybe 2 or 3 tanks might really get it done. I’d like to hear what everyone used to beat him.

      0
      • I beat the 5 star Yoda battle first try,wasn’t even close really. QGJ leader,jedi consular, Lumi, mace, and eeth koth. All 5 star. To be fair I also have been making a jedi team from the time I started playing a few months back.

        0
        • Sucks you have to use Eeth Koth though, especially against yoda. You won’t have the same luck in tier 6 or 7 against him.

          0
        • I beat the first 4 stages in one try, but I think I had a problem with stage 5 because I was using Jedis I never use on a daily basis. I think having 2 tanks for the 5th stage is more important that having heavy attackers. My Mace was only 4 star so I couldn’t use him, but he has some pretty heavy attacks for a tank.

          5
    • This guy is already in my top 5 after less than a week with what I would call surprisingly good survivability. He kicks ass on an all Jedi team and while I don’t think his leadership ability at level 5 is anything special, using another Jedi as a leader doesn’t seem to diminish his effectiveness one bit, in particular if they have strong defensive leadership abilities like Eeth of Kit. Don’t know what Ima-Gun Di’s leadership ability is, because I don’t have him yet. But I’m working on that guy next.

      5
  21. Don’t have him, but facing 5 and 6 star Yodas in Arena haven’t caused me any problems. Don’t know about 7 star, though…

    0
    • Same. A freakin surprise though, I never suspect crap pulled by characters I’m unfamiliar with. Yeah he has a AoE, buff all, and shenanigans, but crit on all but one guy on my team and buff everyone? Yeah, scary. I won, but scary.

  22. Qui-Gon Genitalia

    All you need is 5 jedi at at least 5 stars to unlock a 5 star Grand Master Joda.

    I just unlocked him using Eet Krotch, Luminasti Cumdumi, JC the Black Jesus, Meth Wedu, and Asoaka Tampon.

    Yay, look at me. I did it, and so can you. All you have to do is believe in yourself, and all the impossible miracles will miraculously become possible.

  23. I think you have to upgrade his GW score because now, it’s very easy for me to finish GW with him. He saves me a lot of times, even versus all lvl 70 full gear debuff team ( I only have him lvl 63 ) and without losing any Jedi character

    Now I’m not affraid to fight a max lvl full gear debuff dark side team ( Darth Sidious, Count Dooku, Darth Vader, … ) with my non max lvl Jedi team.

    0
  24. I have yoda maxed gear level 70 7 star 5900 power he is very good if you have qui gon as lead his health is 11k which ain’t god awful compared to emp at 9k and with 170+ speed you get the first attack which helps pick off the first big hit of your opponents team which can net you the win followed with a 5v4 and you heal with luminari

  25. Well my hopes were raised, I thought the tiers would restart, and it was crushed. It continued. And when you try to restart it says an error has occured.

      I found the Yoda update immediately and was starting to get 5 Jedis. I did two battles and now I can’t do anymore because I only have 4 of them 3 stars. You can never restart though and I feel like that completely ruined it all.

      But I did find a new character that is 3 stars… I got Plo Koon… he sucks.

      0
      • Plo Koon doesn’t suck- trust me. He’s a defensive monster, just start upgrading him. Everyone sucks under gear level 5.

        And whatever you heard, from other people, they’re wrong. I had all 100 shards I got lost month 1-4 stages and only needed to beat stage 5 to get Yoda a few days ago. I think they made it easier for people because you may have needed to have 5 level 6 Jedis before ( VERY DIFFICULT!!). Just focus all energy on upgrading Jedis on difficult boards, and also buying them with shards on galactic war store, cantina store, and arena stores.

  26. Do you think the the yoda event will continue to refresh every 3 weeks continuously or do you think this will be the last time to get yoda this way?

    0
    • From what I know it will continue every month indefinitely. And open for one week in the month. I’m relying on it. I’m getting yoda 5* tomorrow but can only get 7* in April

      0
  27. Im sorry if I missed it somewhere in the comments. But I have forgotten the requirements to participate in this event. Such as which Jedi you can use, and how many stars you have to have for each tier. I completed 1 and 2. Im fairly certain for 3 I have to have 5 Jedi that are at least 3 star? And 4 I have to have 5 Jedi that are 4 stars? Can you guys please give me a run down on what i need for 3 and beyond? I would greatly appreciate it!

    Right now I have the following:
    Luminara Unduli- 6 star (92/100) lvl 64
    Jedi Consular- 5 star (8/85) lvl 64
    Plo Koon- 3 star (2/30) lvl 62
    Ahsoka Tano- 3 star (1/30) lvl 62
    Jedi Knight Guardian- 2 star (2/25) lvl 41
    Eeth Koth- 3 star (15/30) lvl 35
    Qui Gon Jinn- 2 star (0/25) lvl 2

    I just unlocked Eeth and QGJ to start farming them, so I know I need to work on them. Shouldnt be too hard.

    0
    • You have 7 Jedi’s but basically 3 of them are worth leveling: Luminara, JC and QGJ. Ahsoka is ok but hard to farm. I would concentrate on leveling these 3 and get Barriss Offee (she will make your GW life a lot easier) and Mace Windu (got better buffs from last update), both are farm-able from the Holotable. That is currently the best farm-able Jedi team for F2P players.

      You have the criteria correct for the challenge progression: need 5 Jedi’s of the corresponding number of stars to unlock that star level of Yoda.

      To Unlock Yoda
      – Have 5 JEDI’s.
      – They need to be at least 5*s.
      – Level characters doesn’t matter.
      – Capable of beating Yoda 5 times.

  28. Tricky to use, he has a large kit that has to be used at the right time, but he’s AMAZING if used correctly, specifically on a Jedi team against buffers. Take Kylo Ren for example, if Yoda replicates his buff and gives it to your entire team, and then the AI decides to use an AoE on you, they’re gonna feel a lot of pain.

    5
    • Yes!! Lol, I LOVE Yoda!! I have him 6*, lvl 9 gear, level 70. He is an absolute beast. If you wait to use battle meditation it can really pay off with sweet instances like the one you just named, but using it right out of the gate can be very effective too! It eliminates stuns and debuffs for whole team for 2 turns, which is huge!! He is very strong, hits like a truck! I’m so worried they will need him..

  29. I’ve got 5-star Yoda now and he’s excellent for GW and Campaign… he’s a little tricky to use in PvP Arena however but he’s still very annoying to play against with that foresight ability.

    I’ve got 6-star Gui Gon, 6* Luminara, 5* Eeth Koth, 5* Jedi Consular and 5* Ahsoka Tano. Currently farming for Eeth Koth in Arena Shipments, Ahsoka in Cantia Shipments and Jedi Consular in Squad Cantina Battles. While in GW shipments I gather Luminara shards. Hoping to be ready for when Yoda returns so I can reach Level 6 of his training and unlock 6* Yoda.

    Very powerful ability attacks if timed and used precisely! Big Yoda fan.

  30. qgj speed buff makes Yoda faster than sidous and duku. Yoda buff helps resist anti healing and ability block. Jedis use the force for protection. I’m not saying the path of the Jedi is easy, but useing the right Jedi you can counter any team in the game. Big crits are easy to play, more seductive… To play Yoda you must be calm. At peace! Passive…
    OK OK I’ll stop.

  31. Just got 5* Yoda as a lvl 48 with QGJ leader, kit, mace, lum and JC. Didn’t think I would get him this round but after dinging 48 and getting them all gear level 6+ I did it. Was a hell of a lot of tries up that point though. Going to try to gear him up tomorrow and see how he does. Good luck to everyone trying to get him. It’s a fun event. May the force be with you.

  32. Got my 5* Yoda at day one. Have Gear VII and all skills to 5+. Some are complaining he is OP. I disagree. He is a solid all around toon and very fun to play, that said, he takes two turns (or a lucky assist) to be extremely useful. He has to either perform his basic or masterstroke a turn before Battle Meditation. In my experience, it is rare when he is able to grant useful buffs to the entire team. Granted I have not used him as leader much yet, and that could change my perspective.

    • Not necessarily. If you’re running a mostly Jedi team and up against anti Jedi toons like dooku or sid, with qgj as lead then yoda is faster so you battle meditate immediately and your toons will resist everything and make it easier, and also with one tank if you give him tenacity up then they can’t remove his taunt either when he uses it. Tenacity up alone is good enough without having to wait for foresight or anything else.

      But that’s the best thing about yoda, he makes it strategically interesting. Hopefully in the future we move a bit away from high damage to high HP and he’ll become the best toon in the game.

      0
    • Battle meditation by itself is incredible! And if he is leader every Jedi will gain turn meter every time they resist, which is pretty much every negative effect. Try using it first next time, watch how much easier your fights get.

  33. Does anybody know when is the deadline?
    It shows 2 day and 8 hours in the game.

  34. I got yoda 7*… Hes ok, i totally agree woth the 75 rating. Hes not as amazing as u would expect. But for those who want to know how i did it… The characters i used were:
    1. Barriss offee (leader)
    2. QGJ
    3. Luminara
    4. JC
    5. Ahsoka Tano
    Barriss offee boosts the characters health which makes them hard to kill

    0
    • I did it with a Barris lead too. Bonus is that she will continue to be useful for GW, so it wasn’t wasted leveling (same with QGJ, and if you are a whale, Old Ben). Regarding my other toons, I would gladly take a refund for the credits I used to 7-star my Kit or JC.

      0
    • That’s my team too, tho’ other than lumi who is 7* , the rest of the team is at 5*. At the rate I’m going it will probably take me a couple more months to get to 7*. Barriss is hard to farm, and ashoka/qgj are both on cantina, which usually takes me 2 days to just get 5 shards, and jc farms ok. I’m ftp btw.

      I think yoda for arena is lame until he gets to 7* ( my team has easily beat him up to 6*) but I think he’s great for GW. I got all the way to the 10 node before he got offed, which is awesome as the day before I only got to node 7. I have him at%* gear 7 and abilities 4.

      I think most of the toons that you think will be incredible, they downplay like Anakin, yoda, vader, luke, but other toons like GS, nightsister Initiate, are explosive toons( regarding health, and damage).

      So there’s that.

  35. Getting 5 Jedies to participate in event Tier 5/6/7 if you are 45+ lvl (have been playing for 10-15 days) for f2p players:
    1. Get Luminara Unduli from GW shipment. It’s almost not a problem to get 15 shards per day which takes:
    10/16/22 days.
    2. Get Eeth Koth from Arena Shipment. If you’re in top-200 (I was there since my 45 lvl as far as I remember), you get 10 shard per day. So:
    15/23/33 days.
    3. Get QGJ from Cantina shipment. The hardest. Buying 120 energy for 100 crystal, you get appr. 5 shards of him per day (1 energy per 12 minutes means 120 energy in 24 hours plus 120 energy that I’ve purchased. Total 240 energy, i.e. 20 fights in lvl 5 Cantina that is 420 Cantina Credits per day). So:
    30/46/66
    4-5. Get Mace Windu and JC from Cantina battles and Hard battles. With 120 additional energy for 100 crystals and using all 3 location for farming JC and 1 location for farming Mace Windu, you will get in average 10-12 shards of them, 5-6 per one. Let’s take 5 due to bad RNG, and don’t forget that at least 25 shards of JC you have already got for free from the very beginning. So again:
    30/46/66

    So, as you can see, 1 month is more than enough for f2p player to be ready to get him 5* during the next time event is open.

    0
    • This is exactly what I’m doing. Lumi and jc are already 7* but the others will only be 5* by next event. Also I’m going for Barriss instead of Windu. I should be able to farm honorable 6A in a few days. Then if I really want the yoda 7* I can try for it in the 3rd event. The other 3 should be 7* by the 3rd event

      0
    • Helpful analysis!

      That said, I wouldn’t recommend such a focus on Yoda as a new player, since you would have to focus on marginally useful characters (JC, EK, and Mace), which will hobble progression, making it harder to place highly in Arena, and not being able to do GW very well either.

      0
  36. Why is every 1 rating him 5* without having him? So serious..

    0
  37. Got Yoda to 6*. There is your anti-Poe strategy: put QGJ as Leader and Yoda gets his turn before Poe, use Special 7 (65% chance to remove 40% turn meter) and start taking out the glass cannons and DPS that Poe protects. If special fails and Poe taunts, use QGJ special which now WORKS on Poe and removes his taunt. Then proceed as instructed. Works like a charm.

    P.S.: You won’t get to use Yoda’s other specials though

    5
  38. I seriously dont understand how anyone could have taken him to 7* already with the limited number of shards available. Dont you need 330 shards to take it there.

    5
  39. Dang, I got 3 5* jedi… Just barely not enough to get yoda,hope the event return soon when I got 5* Ahsoka and that anti droid Jedi that I never use

    5
  40. I can see why they made it so you have to have all jedi teams, but i also don’t think that you should’ve been able to max out Yoda at 7 stars from the get go. Far too many people were using 4 dark characters and Luminara. But it flat out rewards pay for play players in getting a max Yoda straight away. That was one thing I liked so much about this game. I never felt so totally outgunned by another team. I never felt like I needed to pour cash into it to get the max out of it. I hope Yoda doesn’t change that.

    0
  41. I’m frustrated because event only applies to players with Jedi teams. Not too cool for me. I don’t understand why EA is excluding players.

    0
    • I’m stuck with 2x Jedi at two stars each. Never bothered to go higher. Never saw this coming. I’m likely more screwed than anyone.

      0
      • Don’t over stress guys. The event will come back, if you really want him there is still time to farm some Jedi before its back. I’m going to do that. Just start qgj cantina and eeth arena and mace from cantina battles. They said the event should be open one week per month so I assume it will be back in one month. Enough time to get those to 5*

        0
    • I’m f2p, and I have a 6* Yoda, level 70, level 9 gear, and all maxed abilities. And hopefully have enough to get him maxed by next months Yoda event. If you grind smart, you can get all you need from shops and hard stages. Yoda is a BEAST btw 😉

      0
  42. I opened him up today at five stars and took him to level 70 with two slots to fill until I reach gear 8. I think he is pretty amazing so far even without trying to figure out his synergies with other toons.

    The fact that you can give him foresight and then grant it to all of you other toons for two turns can wipe out a round of attacks… along as they are not aoe.

    I was also able to grant offensive up from opponent (poggle)and grant it to my team, up while not being damaged that turn. In that battle alone Yoda basically won it for me.

    He is squishy and his damage isn’t that high but wow his abilities are off the chart and can counter almost anything i can think of besides healing immunity! Besides if I dosent take a head-shot then his foresight makes up for the squish.

    Im really loving him so far…

  43. Got the little guy! 6* gear 8. Watch out for genital Ben and poe though, still rinse combo in PvP.

    0
  44. I got him as a 5* and was able to get him to 58, gear 5, and all his attacks to 3 today. Put him in arena as the leader of all Jedi team with QGJ, Lumi, JC, and Aayala. At his current gear level QGJ is still faster, so was rather fun when Yoda got pulled for assist on opening shot and immediately had foresight up. He was 2nd to go and then I pulled battle Meditation. Poof everyone had foresight. Good fun!

    0
    • So it seems leader speed works on turn 1 now, correct me if im wrong, but that means Yoda is the fastest toon in the game with qui-gon as a leader at 174 speed, and gets foresight on the 1st move or stuns someone? Before anything else.. Talk about meta change..

      5
      • You are correct…leader abilities are now applied during the first turn and there’s no more RNG Tiers. Leia beats him with Ackbar leader thou.

        0
        • Wrong. It is Leia with Ackbar as leader, 175 vs 174.

        • Hi Kylven and sgghocantina-team! Great work so far!
          First of all: i like Yoda a lot. Used him (Lvl 70/5*/8) in GW today and he died in Stage 11. Full run with my A-Team and also first time i didnt use a suicide Squad in GW and ran through it. Funny new Char that will find a spot in my Arena team next week when 70/6*/9.

          Off topic:
          Still disappointed of Jedis – i faced our Nr. 1 “Meteor” having a maxed team 7* Barris/Aayla/Ben/QGJ/Lumi winning the fight with my F2P team
          7* Sid/Lumi/Geo/Daka and QGJ 5* @ 90-100% health. Couldnt believe that. Today he runs QGJ lead Jedi-Team and swapped Barris for 7* Yoda. I´m excited if this Yedi Team now is a problem.

          Sorry, if i have to post sth non-Yoda here, but somehow i can not create an account @swgoh (EA) to post something. I just wanted to report that there is a bug in Arena that happened to me 2nd time now during my battle. I noticed it twice on Daka when reviving someone or reviving herself – battle froze and i couldnt do anything (+ no autoplay working) than watching the timer go down. Maybe u can do sth over there.

          Kind regards
          Kel

      • No he can’t stun anyone first turn, only gain foresight. He doesn’t really change the meta and depending on AI we will see how useful he will be

        0
        • Yap, got the stun wrong, but there is definitely a meta change, maybe not yoda alone, but the leader speed, makes toons like Poe finished, Poe is finished, he will die before taunting, and Genosian too..

          5
        • Just to name a few..
          Leia 175 Speed (Ackbar Leader)
          Yoda 174 Speed (Qui-Gon Leader)
          Hott Rebel Scout 166 (Ackbar again)
          Night Sister A 165 (Asajj Leader)
          Qui-Gon 160 (im self)
          Anakin 160 (Qui-Gon)

          And the list goes on, every taunter will die before is turn.. Hell you can build a team that will deal with Sidious and maybe even Obi-Wan before they get their turn, definitely a meta change..

          5
          • Disagree. Taunters will be around for their turn, but now someone high dps will be taken out prior to the taunt.

            0
        • He could if he goes after Leia (assuming no QGJ lead). Leia can often get a toon below 50% (sometimes even 1-shot too!), setting up the stun opportunity.

          0
  45. Most of the stats and abilities are in…working on breaking out multiple ability damage stats, but for now the highest is listed. He does not replicate taunt…phew.

    • Can’t possibly imagine they’d allow that .. otherwise everyone would do first few levels which are very easy everyday and every single player would have 7* yoda by weeks end.

    • that would be ridiculous

      0
    • You have this week to progress as far as you can in the event until it returns. Your progress is saved until you meet the requirements for the next challenge. So for example you finished tier V this week. When the event returns you will continue from tier VI.

  49. Basically, what EA did here was reward people that pay real money to win, with a 7* Yoda.

    That part of this is what kind of irritates me.

    But finally getting Yoda is cool though.
    Doesn’t erase my P2W hate though.

    0
    • What in gods name are you talking about, Yoda is completely viable for F2P’s, just as it is P2P’s. All it takes is a JC, Windu, Luminara, Eeth Koth, and the last Jedi is up to you in cantina shipments. These Jedi’s 5 Jedi’s can be gotten in less than 3 months, putting you in a position to get Yoda.

      0
      • Im afriad you’re wrong, most F2P especially low levels, dont have Windu or Eeth koth at 5* let alone Ahsoka or Qui gon as you so helpfully gave them as an option (I’d rather farm poe).

        I havent spent a thing i have about 12 6-7* chars, the only Jedi’s i have 5*+ are Lumi, JC and Barriss (only just 5* after the ungodly amount of farming I’ve been doing beyond lvl 69.

        0
        • Well that’s why the event is opened for one week per month. I’m also f2p and don’t have the required Jedi yet but I can easily farm eeth koth and Windu up to 5* before the next time the event opens. So we have to wait a bit longer but we can still get him easily

          0
        • They don’t have Eeth Koth and Windu because they went with the cookie cutter Sid and Kylo

          0
          • They don’t have them because Eeth Koth is garabage compared to other heroes in arena shipment and Mace was weak til this patch.

            0
        • I’m f2p, and my 6* Yoda is pretty pimped out with lvl 9 gear. He’s not that hard to get if you grind for him. Every shop has at least one Jedi in it.

    • I cannot understand all the complains about P2P players, you do realise that without these people, we will probably not even have a game – you think your F2P will fund the developers? Grow up and just accept what you get for a free game!

      0
      • exactly, when I was a noob with no job I used to hate it but deep down I knew those P2P peeps were the ones funding the game I loved. Tbh nothing wrong with rewarding them for the money they put into this. #noQQ

  54. Got my 5x Jedi 7* ready, just not sure about his mechanics. I know his abilities aren’t listed here yet, but stealing a partywide taunt buff wouldn’t be the greatest thing when controlled by the AI’s lack of intelligence.

    0
  55. Yay, why is he coming before Grievous and Jedi Luke? He’s the pinnacle of SW and should’ve been kept for last.
    Anyway, can’t complain, have 3 7* Jedis + finishing 7* QGJ, so only one 7* Jedi short. Who would people recommend: Asoka, Mace, Jedi Guardian or Barriss as 5th Jedi, in terms of how easy to get shards for.

    5
    • Bari ss can be farmed in squad arena and I love farming her there bc she’s in top level where the value of energy spent is great squad arena coins payout thus helping get more shards in the store.. she’s only jedi that can beat the anti heal debuff which is an amazing ability the other tons you listed are weak imo so even if easier to farm won’t compete with bariss.. even if she’s a star lower she’s better imho

      0
      • Bariss can’t be farmed in the squad arena. That is false.

        0
      • with the ability to steal and distribute buffs he is pretty diverse. Popping foresight on first move and battle meditation on second makes your entire team near invincible. On top of that he hits like a truck once you level him and his gear up. I’ve seen crits in the 10-11k range with offense up buff, as high as 7-8k without it.

        0
    • Barris is the easiest to farm of the ones you named. She’s in shop (level 6 stage 1) and 2 hard stages. I got her to 6* fairly quick.
