Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes: Game update July 2017

Here are the patch notes for the latest game update for Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes

BEYOND THE FOREST- EWOK FLASH EVENTS
Blink and you’ll miss it- Flash events have returned! If you’re new to Flash events, here’s a quick primer: Flash events last for 1-2 hours and repeat several times over a few days. This time around, your Ewoks answer the call of battle in this multi-tiered event. Power up your Squad and earn gear as you contend with Imperial enemies, Bounty Hunters, and Droids. The true might of your small Squad is tested in the final (and difficult!) BONUS tier, so be sure to be ready!

First Flash Event fires off July 22nd

ENDOR ESCALATION I & II MARQUEE EVENTS
Strange invaders have leveled a nearby village and encroached on Ewok territories! Join forces with the newest Ewoks to join Galaxy of Heroes: PAPLOO and LOGRAY. Earn their respective shards and Familiarize yourself with each new Ewok’s respective abilities as you contend with various Troopers. Keep on your guard as something more roams the forest, seeking you out.

EVENT SCHEDULE
Endor Escalation I PAPLOO

  • Starts: July 20th
  • Ends: July 22nd

Endor Escalation II LOGRAY

  • Starts: July 22nd
  • Ends: July 24th

Level Banded Events:
Going forward, all Marquee events will employ the same level banding functionality seen in Flash Events. What this means is that every Marquee event you play will contain all tiers in your level range. For example, players at level 25 will now see 4 missions they can complete, rather than several missions too high level for them to participate in. Likewise, players at the level cap will have 4-5 missions which are tuned appropriately for them.

NEW MODS SET PACK
Happy Mod Anniversary! Are you ready to power up your play? Mod Set packs are available for a limited time. Each pack features a full mod set (per class) plus a BONUS Tier A (Gold) mod from any slot. Get them while they last!

  • Players can purchase each pack a total of 5 times per day
  • All Players who are level 70+ and have unlocked Mods will be able to buy this pack
  • Range of Mods in each Pack are 4-5 Stars

Assault Battle Updates:
The Military Might Assault Battle event has had its rewards overhauled. Rewards are now similar to Places of Power. Each victory in this event will yield ship ability materials, ship training droids, 4 shards of a non-pilot Empire character, and 5 shards of a pilot empire character paired with 4 blueprints of their ship. In cases where a ship has multiple pilots such as the TIE Reaper, only one pilot will be granted. (Non-primary pilots are still possible rewards in the general character pool.) As part of this overhaul, Darth Vader, TIE Advanced, Gar Saxon, Imperial Super Commando, Gauntlet Starfighter, and TIE Reaper have been added to the reward tables for this event.

The Holotable has just gotten a bit bigger! The environments used in Squad Arena and Galactic War have been updated to include the following locations:

  • Chopper Base
  • Imperial Throne Room (Death Star)
  • Geonosis Catacombs
  • Jedha Occupied City
