Let me state, I’m a bit of a mini whale. Been playing 6-ish months. Level 34, 50-Ish 5 stars, 8 of them maxed, 21 4 stars maxed. Hitting 14* titans daily with 120-200k scores regularly. I’ve spent thousands of dollars. But what’s the point…
I have 7 Dblades, 8 scopes, 4 tonics, 6 rings, 7 darts, 11 tabards and 0 tomes. I have all these great heroes I’ve spent a fortune for, but no way to level them. It’s ridiculous how rarely these materials drop. Fortunately the mat issue has been saving me money since I’ve stopped spending on event heroes since I can’t get the mats needed to level them but that’s not the point. There’s no reason a 5* should need both a tome and Dblade plus the 6 color specific mats. If I hadn’t spent the cash I have, I’d have no more than 2 5* leveled now and that’s a maybe, but doubtful.
I understand longterm players need the benefit of time and shouldn’t be beaten by whales after a few weeks, but this is ridiculous. Part of my 6 months was spent during Perseus and Zeline seasons and I swear mats dropped more easily then.
SG, some heroes should need tomes, other need Dblades but both with your economy, it sucks. I have no reason to spend unless the offer has mats included. I can’t imagine what it’s like for a F2P player. You need to drop more mats, or reduce the need for Dblades AND tomes. It’s nuts and not like any other game I’ve enjoyed.
