Shards are essential in getting your favorite Star Wars character. Many of the strong characters such as Count Dooku, Luke Skywalker and First Order TIE Pilot can only be gotten from consistently getting their character shards. As you get more shards for your characters, you are able to upgrade them from 1 star all the way to 7 stars. This will in turn improve their base stats such as armor, physical and special damage, resistance and more.

So far, only Darth Vader cannot be farmed, but I am sure they will allow us to do that sometime in the future. Right now, you can farm character shards in 3 areas:

  • Light Side Battles (requires 12 energy and light characters)
  • Dark Side Battles (requires 12 energy and dark characters)
  • Squad Cantina Battles (requires 8-12 cantina energy, can use both light or dark characters)

Keep in mind both light and dark side hard battles can only be done 3 times for any given stage, so you are quite limited in terms of the number of shards you can get here. For Squad Cantina battles, you technically have “unlimited” energy to farm a character if you keep buying crystals. For most f2p people, they can at least get 3-5 shards a day of the character they choose to farm.

Also make sure to save your Cantina credits on character shards you really want.

It also helps if you can attain 3 stars of the map, since you can just use Sim Tickets to clear the stage instead of fighting. I recommend farming Jedi Consular, Count Dooka and Luke Skywalker for beginners. They are very good and will allow you to get to the later stages where you can farm First Order TIE Pilot[an excellent hero] or any other hero you like.

If you have trouble finding the specific character, use the search function to find them in the table.

Most Farmable Character List

Bonus Data by meanpride of Reddit(Kudos):

Legend

GW – Galactic War Shipments. A completed War will reward a total of 15 shards

CANTINA – Cantina mission shards. Spending all cantina energy, INCLUDING 1 REFILL(which is highly recommended), would yield approx. 8 shards a day.

HM – Hard Mode shards. 3 max missions that yields ~1 shard per mission per day. Multiple Heroes have multiple missions.

For reference: http://www.swgohcantina.com/swgoh-shard-farming-locations/

  1. IG-86 – 15(GW), 8(CANTINA), 2(2HM) = 25/day
  2. Datcha – 15(GW), 8(CANTINA), 2(2HM) = 25/day
  3. Biggs Darklighter – 15 (GW), 8(CANTINA), 1(1HM) = 24/day
  4. Luminara – 15(GW), 3(3HM) = 18/day
  5. Poggle – 15(GW), 2(2HM) = 17/day
  6. Teebo – 15(GW), 2(2HM) = 17/day
  7. Tusken Raider – 15(GW), 1(1HM) = 16/day
  8. Phasma, Resistance Pilot, Nightsister Initiate – 15(GW) = 15/day
  9. Jedi Consular – 8(CANTINA), 3(3HM) = 11/day
  10. Chewbacca – 8(CANTINA), 2(2HM) = 10/day
  11. Mace Windu – 8(CANTINA), 1(1HM) = 9/day

*Arena Heroes – 10/day (If ranked from 101-200)

Disclaimer: CANTINA and HM are an approximate. You may get more or less depending on RNG.

EDIT: lowered Cantina drops from 10 to 8. My RNG Data may be different from others.
