I am lvl 37 and I have a 50-60$ to spend on this game. I am playing since the official release last week and I don't know where's the best place to spend my money. I missed the doku sale at 5$ (omg I regret it now) and I am only at 17/50 shard to unlock him.
-Chromium 8 pack?
-Assasin droid bundle
-jedi starter bundle
I am playing everyday
Thanks for the advice
Not really worth it to wait half a month when you could be playing something else.
It's all RNG. Some days I get 0/3 because I was unlucky, some days I get 3/3 because I was lucky. Most days I'll get 1/3 or 2/3.
Do I get annoyed when I get a 0/3 day? Yes, of course I do. But I accept it because that's just a part of what an RNG system is. It's the same for every other mobile game out there that requires you to grind for upgrades.
Am I going to complain about it to everyone on these boards because clearly there's a conspiracy of EA being against me specifically and not wanting me to get any shard drops? No, because that's clearly ridiculous.
If you really dislike this game (and EA) so much then just stop playing. No one is going to miss you.
Now with skill level 4 she rocks.
Ashoka with Heal on crit is good too.
Asajj needs a rework for her 2.skill-heal on buff remove.Its useless with 50% miss.
You get 2 Heros for each side.
I think it was a good deal.
Chromium packs are a rip off.
That was before the nerf this week...
Those days are not of equal probability. The drop rate is WELL under 50%.
Sorry, I didn't realise you were a developer on this game and have inside information regarding changes to drop rates.
But OK sure, I'll believe your claims that there's been a nerf to shard drop rates this week. That would explain why I got 2/3 General Veers shards yesterday, and 3/6 Dooku shards.
No one said the drop rate should be over 50%.
There are people who assume that because you only get 3 attempts for hard missions each day (unless you refresh with crystals), that the drop rate should be 100%. That's simply a ridiculous assumption to make and is plain case of entitlement.
Games like these are designed to be long term grinds for a reason. If everyone could farm all the characters they want in a month or two the game wouldn't have any longevity. Also, from a business standpoint, the grind system means they can make more money off the players who have cash to spend on the game to buy Chromium/Character bundles to speed things up for them.
This has not been my experience -- at all. I average 1/3 if I am lucky. This morning I had to do over 20 tries to get 5 shards to finish off 4* Chewie. I got 1/6 on another character.
If it's really as good as you say, I'll write this off as bad luck. But I don't think that's the case.
ETA: The shard drops in Cantina are even worse, but that I can understand.
Fair enough, I guess I'm just one of the lucky ones then. If I was having as little drops as you are I'd be annoyed too.
I seem to have pretty good luck with Cantina shard drops too.
I managed to get the 65 Jedi Consular shards I needed to rank him up to 5* from running cantina and his 3 hard missions in about 8 or 9 days
Edit: I can see that a lot of people are complaining about the drop rates in other threads too. And if Capital Games decides to increase the drop rates I'm not going to complain at all
I'm torn on upgrading the Consular. I was going to, but Luminara looks like she won't take very long to get from Galactic Wars, and I already have Barriss. Luminara also looks like she'll be faster to level up. Not sure how many Jedi healers I need... do you think he's worth continuing to work on?
Sure, happy to do that, but right now I'm only doing General Veers and Dooku hard missions for their shards. I'm spending the rest of my energy farming materials for gear upgrades
Also, I only upgraded Consular because I didn't have Barriss. I got her last night in a 8x Chromium bundle after I saved up enough crystals though but need to level/gear her up.
But no regrets having Consular at 5* because you can never have enough healers for GW
Congrats on the Barriss. Though I hate when people post that they get good stuff from random packs because then it tempts me to buy them and I KNOW what will happen if I do.. I will get junk and then kick myself. Nothing on you of course. Random stuff is just sort of my bane.
trying to get the consular at 3*
Ever have a healer almost finished off and Chewie does his taunt? Asajj sometimes helps with that.
Get her main attack to level 3 and she has a 35% stun chance on her basic attack. Stunning is pretty much the best effect in the game.
I also really enjoy playing her because she's one of the few characters that takes skill to play because of her AoE. If you can time it right, she can do it over and over again, and it does a decent amount of damage.
I would give her a shot.
Just did my "daily Dooku". 2 out of 6. This is pretty typical.
And it's too low, IMO. That's 72 energy blown for 2 shards. 72 energy takes 7 hours to regenerate.
I know they don't want everyone to be able to boost chars up super quickly but this is too slow for characters whose shards aren't available 5 at a time in other ways.
That is ridiculous.
If I were you I would buy the droid pack. Before long you will be level 50 - 60 and then they will really come into their own. I baught the heroine pack myself and it was fun but it has plateaued at lvl 50
Can you explain why the droid pack is better at higher levels? I've looked at it but nothing seemed too impressive unless I decide to make an entire team oriented around droids (which frankly aren't that exciting so far).
What did you get today in Dooku? We want to know.
In the first week, I got 17 shards. In the last 4 days, I got 3...total. It's not just Dooku either. Sarcasm only gets you so far and so does fanboyism.
Day 1 (yesterday):
Hard missions - 0/3 Veers, 2/6 Dooku.
Cantina - I forgot to count how many fights I did to farm IG-86 shards. Let's just assume I got a full 120 energy worth of attempts for the day, so that's 12 attempts. I'll be generous and say I did 15. So I got 4/15 IG-86.
Hard missions - 1/3 Veers, 1/1 Dooku. This is all I've been able to do so far today (it's 11am now) because I dumped the rest of my energy into farming upgrade gear for Barriss. Now, gear material drop rates are pretty ridiculous but that's another story.
Cantina - 3/4 IG-86, 0/2 Consular. I stopped with IG-86 because I only needed 3 more to get him to 4* rank. I'll be doing Consular for the rest of the day as energy permits.
So yes, not amazing drop rates, but I already said in an earlier post that I do get 0/3 from hard missions some days.
As for fanboyism, I can see why you'd think that because I don't complain that much on these forums. But I made a lot of complaints on the old Beta forums before global launch, here's just a few examples:
Oh my god... That's right, I used to complain about Dooku too! But do you know why I stopped? Because I realised he's really not as OP as I first thought and learnt to deal with him effectively.
Yeah, I complained about the messed up power levels too.
I still think this is a stupid change because not everyone has enough tank characters to avoid Windu from one shotting your team.
A level 52 team kicking my level 60 team's **** in Galactic Wars? Yeah I'm salty about that. Who wouldn't be?
You on the other hand, the majority of the posts I see you make on these boards are anti-EA (Ok that's fine, it is hard to like EA most of the time), and you keep telling people that this game is only going to get worse because of it. If you firmly believe your doom and gloom nay saying about this game to be true, then why are you still playing the game and posting on these boards?
What's on the 18th. And how do you know about it on the 4th.
