After eternal waiting you can build the new unlocked buildings. Until now the hunter’s cabin seemed like a useless replica of the elaboration of battle objects, that was not very useful, especially for its limited use to titans and to get emblems, but not enabled for events. I waited with faiht for the alchemy laboratory that tons of accumulated things could be used for more than just accumulating garbage or changing it for other garbage. Useless waiting hours: Legendary ascension items cannot be obtained. To reach the necessary level of fortification, it is assumed that you must be a fairly old player. For us, epic ascension materials already accumulate as garbage. I must have 40 of each layer, tools, shields, orbs and swords. Why keep wasting time on leveling up the alchemy lab if it won’t give me anything that I don’t already have?
For shards, mainly, and exchange common herbs for something more useful.
Yes not a so great building.
Add to that that we already are regulary short on resources, and you discover that Alchemy lab is a tool that you probably use after everything else.
and it only takes 6 months to get ONE 4 ascention item with shards
if you craft everyday
Regarding the title: Ideas themselves were fine. Final execution (the fact that it uses gems) of the alchemy lab is crap.
And hunter’s cabin is okayish. Gives us something to play with.
I may have rushed my evaluation if the AM called epics are those of the last ascension of legendary heroes But what is the time to obtaining? Should I wait months to know if the building upgrade was of any use? Will the same happen with the academy? I am full of 5 * repeated heroes taking place. Can I exchange them in a year? The idea of new buildings was good, in fact it was ours, but in order to respond to the accumulation that is already affecting us. Waiting times are ridiculous.
Players don’t need new buildings. What they want are new PvP events as AW. The raid tournament is not challenging at all. We all going to get bored twice before the academy is launched.
I don’t know who thought up the Alchemy Lab but it’s quite possibly the worst idea implemented in this game. Waste of time, resources and gems.
There’s a fair amount of information and discussion here: 🎲 Alchemy Lab FAQ, Discussion & Alkashard Calculator
But no, I don’t personally think Alchemy Lab is of any use.
You can read more about why, and other people’s opinions in the thread linked above.
I’d like to see it revisited/revamped. I was disappointed with the current iteration.
(Looking forward to Hero Academy! )
Yup, in a few short months we will be able to convert 5 Aife’s into a Jenneh for the low price of 300k food!
I have my doubts on the Hero Academy.
I hope it will be useful and better than the Alchemy Lab.
However, based on the recent peppering of deal upon deal, and the monetization of the alchemy lab, I fear that the corporate types will attempt to get their hands on the Hero Academy. They promised it would be F2P friendly, and that may be possible after the epic failure of the Alchemy Lab and the backlash that ensued.
I have hope, but I am tempering it with recent disappointments.
They said they wanted feedback, to hear out the players and give them what they want.
Players wanted new buildings.
Ok. What do they do?
Hunter’s lodge, basically useless.
Alchemy lab, basically useless
Hero academy, (following trends = useless).
and all this after making you spend trillions in resources & making the wait times equal to watching grass grow. Whatching a snail race is more exciting now.
CAN YOU GUYS JUST DO SOMETHİNG RİGHT FOR YOUR PLAYERS THAT GOT YOU WHERE YOU ARE WİTHOUT FACTORING IN GREED.
You forgot the 50 gems… per Aife…
Actually it will be a chance at Jennah, require 500 gems to do it, and you’ll get (1) Aife in return after waiting a week.
That’s pretty much the trend of how this game is going…which is bs.
No, no the usefulness of the new building will be tremendous.
The new hero academy will be the playground for the whales. They get a lot of HotM dupes every month and they will be able to convert them into classic heroes for 300 gems and 1million food in a week or two…
I totally agree with you Espirel. We need gems for ascension materials? hahaha, tantamount of buying,
I was disappointed too when I saw it uses gems for the rare level ascension item transmutations. So much so that I wished I hadn’t built the lab and wasted the resources on it. I have 30+ orbs of magic and was looking forward to getting rid of them, but not at the cost of 150 gems.
Exactly. Why would we need to use gems to convert ascension materials we don’t want, especially when we’re getting something RANDOM in return? We’ve already earned these ascension materials, we just wanted a sidegrade, not an upgrade.
This was supposed to be something that smoothed out the RNG a little, not something to make them more money (which I’m sure it won’t, I think most people will say **** it and just keep what they have and wait).
Alchemy lab is a huge failure in it’s current format.
Hope the Hero Lab let’s us do something useful with our duplicate 4 and 5 stars without requiring gems.
At this point, I get the feeling this is about as likely as me winning the Miss America Pageant.
Sorry. Couldn’t resist.
