How many crystals do you spend a day?

Prev1
First question, How many crystals do you spend in a day? And how do you spend them?
I have taken a break from the game many times so I’m working on catching up. I typically spend 450 crystals a day. 300 on cantina refreshes, 150 on energy refreshes for gear. Sometimes I spike into the 500-600 range when I need gear from fleet nodes (recently found out that was dumb).

Second question, how many crystals do you make in a day?
I usually make 130-150 crystals total per day.

Third question, how much real life money do you spend on the game?
I have to buy a 50$ pack a month to spend as much as I do because my teams are naturally not that great.

  • Make 400 from Fleet and 100 from squad arena most days, plus whatever comes free from GW/Dailies.

    Currently not spending much daily, will start mod refreshing again and the occasional energy refresh for gear farming. Had been doing 3 Cantina refreshes per day to finish farming ARC/the vets.

    Don't really need to spend real money on crystals, although I do occasionally to rush some gearing before events (GAC and new character events).

  • 1. I usually spend between 200 and 500 a day. 150 on energy refreshes, 50 on an arena refresh, and a few hundred on cantina energy refreshes depending how fast I need to farm a character or signal data. Normally I don’t refresh cantina energy though.

    2. At least 200 from top 50 finish in both arenas, plus however many we get from dailies, GW, guild events, GA, and login rewards.

    3. $0

    I spend 50 crystals to make my 600.

    Save the rest for kryo, stun guns, etc.

    I make 400 from ships a day, 150-200 from regular arena a day.

    Sometimes I spend crystals to farm stun guns, kryo, etc.

    Mostly I save 1k crystals and buy kryo or stun guns.

    Edit: I want to point out I am not f2p. I spend. Not a lot. Maybe $5 a month.
  • 300-400 fleet, 75-100 squad? 100+ dailies

    Spent 500ish daily.

    get 400 - 800 from arenas + free stuff
    spend 50 crystals for each arena
    with enery/cantina I only farm shards
    save crystals for gear
    spend no money in crytals since Malak
    spend money sometimes for marquee-packs
    /edit: best invest for crystals is building top10-arena-teams then you need no money

    Earn 950-1000c daily.
    Spend 950-1000c daily.

    Right now spending on cantina energy refreshes, the gray and green relic materials in weekly shipments, extra energy on "all energy day", and the leftovers on Y wing and hyena shards.
  • 300 on cantina, 150 on regular energy, 150 on mod energy and save the remaining 300+ In case i need refreshes or something from store.
  • 0, 700, or 1400.
  • I see, good responses. Good variety of crystal expenditures.

    I am hoping to get where I am high enough in arena where I don’t spend money. But I gotta get my Geo’s high enough to get Padme since that’s gonna be easiest for me to get meta team

  • 300 on cantina
    150 on normal energy
    150 on mods
    50 on hard node refreshes
    50 on squad refresh

    So total spent is 700.

    I was spending 150 on fleet, but I stopped that for now to try and rebuild the 6k Crystal's i had to spend to get gas.

    I plan on stopping my 300 on cantina intermittently as soon as I finish 7 starring arc trooper.

    My income is around 975. 875 average from arenas and the 100ish you get from daily activities and gw.
  • Usually, I earn 50 from squad arena and 50 from fleet arena. This means I can't spend crystals every day. Usually what I spend my crystals on is gear, though I'm currently putting them all into cantina energy to finally take Embo to R7, and then take Mission to 7*.
  • I get 450- 500 from arena depending if I have to refresh. I alternate with someone in fleet so 375-400 per day.
    I spend for 3 mod, e-, fleet e-, and cantina refreshes which equals 750 crystals per day.
    I'll typically spend if it'll help my guild reach a certain goal (currently that prepping for KAM sm by next lsgtb.)

    currently spending 100-200 on cantina energy for arc trooper and to earn daily 600 thing , depends on the day
  • I spend 300 in cantina eneegy refresh, 150 in normal energy refresh, 150 in ship energy refresh and 150 in mods energy refresh.
    So 750 per day in energy refresh.

    I gain 900 per day in arena + daily (~100), raid, TW, TB...
  • Did my wife tell you to ask me?
  • Currently on a slow crystal stockpile rebuild after last G$ event.

    I am also an early game (Dec. ‘15) player, so I am caught up on all available characters and ships currently available from nodes (I typically ‘sustainably power farm’ hard and ship node characters by purchasing the first 2 refreshes on ship and hard nodes as soon as I can, so my expenditure goes up by 75 crystals plus whatever Energy refresh purchases necessary to complete that when available x however many toons being farmed.)

    Spending 200 on cantina refreshes (once crystal stockpile is back over 10k this will increase to 300 unless character farming precludes it) 50 on normal energy refresh, 50 on fleet arena refresh. (If not farming a character or rebuilding stockpiles, also spend 50-100 on mod energy farming)

    Typically receive 150-200 from squad Arena, 325-400 from fleet Arena, plus dailies and activities for an average of about 700 per day.

    Essentially try to not drop below 10k crystals unless shopping for an an event and keep a positive growth of 1k per week - any growth in excess of that rate is usually spent in 300-1400 crystal chunks to purchase Character shards for anticipated events, stun guns, mk 3 holo projectors for relic salvage, or kyrotech salvage for newer toons/g12 finishers.

    Will buy a character pack or crystal vault once or twice a year (spent a little more in the early days) if there is a particularly good character being released that I think I can capitalize on.
  • Three refreshes usually

    This is the answer.

    Anything else is why people pay.

    Edit: there are also other (much “cooler”) reasons to pay.

  • 300. Sometimes 150.

    That’s where I’m trying to get so I’m spending more than I did before I left. Once I get a somewhat competitive arena team I’ll slow down... in theory 😅
  • Making 800-900 daily, spending 600 roughly. When I've saved enough for some salvage for a G13 I'll buy that, then start the process again.
  • First, I typically earn 200 from arena and 400 from fleet, plus the crystals from completing dailies. Lately though my fleet is not so successful with others getting to 7 star negotiator before me.

    150 on 3 mod energy, 150 on 3 regular energy refreshes and 150 on 3 ship energy refreshes. However, currently trying to hoard crystals so only spending 50 on mod energy and 100 on a cantina refresh (relic material hoarding as well).
  • From dailies we make about 250 crystals, depending on the last box for completing everything. I'm usually making 100-150 from arena.

    Right now, until we get new content that's worth playing, I'm not doing anything structured in Crystal expenditure. I'll usually spend 50-100 on a refresh to hit my 600, maybe another 100-150 on mod farming, but in the past week I've saved over 1000 crystals towards repleting my stash that was blown on ga$
  • i was spending 250,but i upped it up to 300,to do a fleet refresh as well.3x50 normal,1x100 cantina,1x50 fleet now.

    I make 100 or if lucky 200 on fleet arena and 60 or 75 from squad if i fall below 200,again if lucky.
  • I earn about 800 crystals a day.

    I used to spend 150 on energy & 300 on cantina per day.

    But for the last 2 months I haven't refreshed any energy at all, hasn't made much of a difference gear-wise as I get plenty of gear from the stores.

    I've racked up about 30k and it's an empowering feeling 😄 hopefully I'll be ready for the Galactic Legend event.

    I’ve noticed many people don’t refresh energy. Do you find farming gear from stores more cost effective and doesn’t take too much longer to get gear?

    Anecdotal alert, I have no actual data.

    I'm pretty sure the dailies get you around 100, not 250. Even adding in the crystals from the prize box will only bump it up 5-25 most days.
