    If a new character is released into the rotation we will be in step 2 for the next Conquest

  • I notice it says several months, not 3. Does this mean that the next conquest could still have the same rewards?

    This is true. The only mention of 3 times was in the ability to unlock CAT with max rewards . (red box hard mode)

    I didn't realize until now how much that sucks. Assuming that conquest currency stays as tight as it is now (and there's no indication it should change), it basically means no more RC shards for now unless we want to spend crystals or give up on the next conquest character. And then the long, annoying hard node farm...

    I bought no RC shards since CAT came out, am sitting on 3200 currency, and will be at like 50/100 on RC after this conquest. I am very happy :sunglasses:

    So you can 7* it if you spend your whole stockpile and some of the tiny surplus from next conquest (assuming the pricing stays the same). Thanks for illustrating my point.

    They left it open, which basically means when the next toon is added that will cause the shift. But also several is because this step is counting RC as the starting point, which would be more than 3 Conquest.

    No that's not correct.

    Why not? You need 50 shards, 5 shards cost 330 tokens, so with your stockpile alone you are 100 tokens short.
  • I thought they were 400?

    I’m really hoping that the next cycle of conquest would have a new character or ship, as I’m only 30 away from unlocking CAT, and I pretty much doesn’t care much for the Razor Crest just yet (as BAM isn’t on my priority list at the moment.)

    Also I’m up hoping for a refresh of bosses etc. Also some new feats would be nice.

    The conquest is getting a bit stale, really.

    It all depends on the data disks used, I believe conquest is fresh and uses more strategies the higher you climb. Albeit, easier if your roster is closer to full development. I don’t think it’s stale. It could also change to keep us on our toes.
  • Can someone clarify how we will get RC/CAT shards after they’re gone from Conquest rewards? Is it only from the conquest shipments? I thought I read someone say hard node?
    Thanks

    You are incorrectly assuming that currency is the only way to get more shards.

    Next will be Conquest rewards, then after they have been out for a year, they will possibly moved to an event or something, but no not a hard node.
  • I'm actually hoping they wait a couple of conquests before introducing a new character. I'd like to be able to work on some gear with the conquest currency after focusing solely on a character with all the currency.

    As far as razorcrest goes, I don't think it's meta shifting enough to worry about. I'm at 50 out of 100 or so. A couple more conquests and it'll be done without any active farming.

    What if they move the RC now to the Conquest Store where 5 shards costs 160 (or 80 Token)? Oh wait, they said they will do it? And they can also set a new "price" for the RC in the store. So no problem at all. All you had to do was put a few tokens aside. We are not missing that much shards now

    I need 25 RC and 40 CAT so I'm fine if they keep the rewards the same one more conquest. That way I can buy relic materials this time around.

    Sure, it will cost 1/4 of what it costs now. Keep dreaming. And unless the cost is, like, 10 tokens, it's mostly pointless anyway. The tiny bit we get to keep after the new character won't be enough for any substantial amount.
    On one hand, keeping the rewards same for one more run would resolve it neatly, but it would make CAT a bit too easily accessible.

    No, this is incorrect. The "spend everything to 7* CAT" mindset is based on the flawed assumption that you're only going to get her in these 3 Conquests. She's going to be in boxes for a long while. You won't have to buy her stuff and can instead spend on Razor Crest or horde or use it for gear. You'll have plenty of shards for free.

    Once the new Conquest character is released it will replace CAT, RC will move out of box rewards and CAT will replace RC.

    And how many shards we’ll get when it happens, which we also have not been told.

    A few in my guild are sitting on ~280 CAT shards and saying they’ll unlock her next Conquest. Maybe they will - but there’s nothing stopping the devs dropping her to 25 shards for red crate

    Where is NicWester claiming that? I don't see any claims that aren't included in the dev post.
  • They could be I doubt CG would do that. It seems they kinda have a mindset of what they want. RC shards didn't drop too much so maybe CAT wouldn't either but CG can do what ever they want

    I'm sitting at 230/330, not even next conquest for me. I'll get it in 2 conquests if they do It like RC maybe more if it's done differently, depending on what they do to the shards. I do see them doing it like they did with RC though.

    That would be absolutely disappointing if they did drop it to 25 shards for the red box XD

    Well I use pretty much the same strategy since I messed up the first conquest when CAT was included for the first time. At the end of the last conquest I just wish for some fresh feats and a change of bosses to keep it a lot fresher.

    Especially if players who have max out both CAT and RC shards will only have the R8 materials to look forward.
