Fast/Easy Heroics for Supply Crates (Empire/Guide)

Just made a list of heroics that are the absolute fastest to finish (on the imperial side, since I didn't do the pub ones yet).

Imo, since this is repeatable content, the way to have fun while doing these heroics is to pick the ones that will be fast to finish, and will give you easy rewards. The ones in green, are the ones you should probably do first!

This threat is mostly aimed towards players who are gathering the crates for the alliance specialist. (Lvl61+)

'TO DO' Heroics;

1. Korriban (Both. At your skill level it will be done in a snap! Should be the same with Hutta and any other starting planet- though, I didn't do them with my 65 so I can't say for sure. Just a guess.)

2. Dromund Kaas
* Personal Challenge (Super fast, should be done in about 2 min)
*Possessed Hunter (All you have to do is kill one guy - Valen Korik - take note that this is in an open space however, so if you see other players waiting for him to respawn, group up with them so none of you will have to wait!)

*Saving Face

3. Balmorra
*Toxic Boom (2min max, just be careful the enemies don't push you into the toxic pit, since that'll drop you back to the med center. Pay attention to where you stand.)
*A Question of Motivation


4. Nar Shadda
/
Though, if you're all out, 'A Pound of Flesh' may be the fastest.

5. Tatooine
* Jawa Trade
* Prison Labor
*Black Box

6. Alderaan
*Spring Thaw

7. Taris
/

8. Hoth
*Pirated Lockbox
*Taking the Heat

8.Belsavis
*A Rock and a Hard Place
If you're all out I'd also go with and 'Old Enemies' and 'Freeing the Fallen', where you have to kill a Jedi Master and a Sith Lord if I remember correctly. However, you will have to fight your way to them first.

9. Voss
/

10. Correlia
/



Some heroics to absolutly avoid, unless you want to waste a lot of time;

* Makeb heroics. (Correct me if I'm wrong, not sure I did all of them, but I remember one lasted around 30min and it was a complete dread!)
*Firestar (Balmorra)
*Comrade in Arms (Balmorra. This heroics will drop you off at the 2 robots instead of the quest directly. It's fun to do it if you missed it out before, but other then that, I'd drop it.)
*Use common sense! If you see there are lot of objectives, or a lot of enemies to kill on high level planets, it's probably not worth it.


Hope this helps make your crate gathering more fun!

Be sure to add another fast-to-finish heroics in the reply section, in case I missed it.

Honestly I just do all of them. It really doesn't take a whole lot of time and you get .off years that way. Since they reset weekly now instead of daily its much easier.

Also for forester I just run in, get the item and run out. I honestly can complete that one in 5 min.

Same with comrade in arms. I can just go around all the enemies, fight the last group need the item then go back. Again less then 5. Min for that one.

Also your last text color bonds into the background and is hard to read.

I just listed the ones I think are the fastest, and last only around 1-3min, ideally. Personally, I got a bit tired of doing all of them, and just do these ones now, then wait for the new week to roll around. (It's not like we're running out of time here. Won't see new chapter till Feb.)

And thanks, I'll change the color.

These lists help those of us with lots of alts (I have about 5 extra 65's that run the super quick heroics that feed my mains their crates - these 5 will never run the KotFE story unless I run out of things to do).

CZ-198 dailies is really fast and give you a lot of CXP/XP, especially if you do the weekly at the same time.
I usually get between 7 and 3 crates depending on what lvl my CXP is at. I can do the whole area in about 10mins or less.
Section X dailies can be done in 16mins. Including the 4 man heroic
Black whole is a little longer and can be done in 18 mins including the 4 man heroic.

These are all done solo and you can shave another 1-2 mins off the dailies if you have 2 people.

I find that imperial side Voss heroics are extremely fast to complete and very rewarding.

On republic they are a total pain though.

Btw trixxie, those estimates are certainly for stealth characters. No way you do sextion X with the heroic 4 in 16 minutes. Theres lots of unskippable mobs. But i think you are confusing the alliance supply crates with command crates. You only get those from the heroics.

You can do the heroic 4 in Section X in even less time if you are high lvl, 1-2 minutes. You can run through all the mobs and pop the movement and defensive abilities of your class along the way to not die. Since you don't need a 4 man group anymore to open the gates and the boss at the end is optional, you can throw the grenade even if you are still in combat, jump into the abyss and wake up at the medcenter with the quest completed.
