Lvl 75 player with all worthwhile buildings maxxed.
I am constantly starved for food at this stage.
2-3 5* heroes being leveled at any one time. 1-2 being finished, 1-2 being targeted to 3/70 to sit and wait. Other colors generally feed costumes unless power levelling a hero.
Hero Academy full time 4 (iron) & 10, constant Alchemy lab at various levels.
In December for a self-Christmas I even purchased two of the gem/20x 500k food offers to finish two mana troops to 23. A few weeks ago I finally finished yellow mana troop to 23 (last one for set). I have probably close to 1000 1* and 2* troops sitting around and could eat 50 million food easily. I’m assuming the whales all purchase and only feed 3* troops to save on food cost.
Constantly sitting on low food. A full titan chest or Goblin recycle is an absolute treat! Fill 2x monster and 2x raid chests per day. Due to the recent Skip timer change I can no longer do a 3rd raid chest daily. TC20 was retired and food consumed midway through Hero Academy upgrades.
Many of the raid chests end up disappointingly turn out to be elemental chests, which provides no food whatsoever. Just garbage, mostly silver coins, and emblems of the 3 classes I don’t need. It has been 17 elemental chests since I’ve received a 4* ascension mat, so they are useless there as well. Mystic Vision is more rewarding there.
Battle mats are primarily iron based. A couple harpoons and minor mana potions weekly are all I spend food on there.
The emblem boost is another problem here. I have right now a range of 141-1540 emblems, averaging 563 per class. The reduced cost was nice, but the count bump with all the new activities kind of cancels that out.
No WE and only overnight 1-2 RE is ever wasted.
Anyone else in this situation? Sure you can prioritize what to work on, but in 2.5 years I’ve never seen it so bad. There appears to be no way to catch up. And no, I’m not buying food refills in the store. $20 for a fill? That’s like paying $20 for a cup of Ramen noodles.
