thanks for the responses. i didn’t think it worked that way, but didn’t want to be shooting myself in the foot when filling the special chests by farming lower levels.


#34

Yep. that is the way it works.

See the lands tab of the E&P Data Bible here: http://tinyurl.com/E-and-P-Data for the rewards for each level.


#35

Are all elemental chest fully random or is there a way to get them ??


#36

Both - they appear randomly based on some some fill rate of the 3 normal chests (monster, hero, titan). I am tracking them in another thread but nothing conclusive yet.


#37

Can you point me to that thread ? :smiley:


#38

The current guess is that there is a cool down time to get one and then a randomness to it, and maybe a ceiling to how long you can go. I think it’s tied to filling the normal chests, but we only have a handful of tracked activities to start. I hope that it grows so we can see if those ‘boundaries’ exist.


#39

I add the anecdotal evidence that skipping Raid/Hero seems to make it take longer to get a rare chest. No concrete dates, but I think it’s been 1-2 months since my last one. Seems forever.

Very good, but I hope that, in next season, the Dev will do some medium stage to farm exclusively red heroes.
Special Stages are easy, but too low to complete.


#41

It took me 63 energy to fill the Red Chest at 4-1. Quick’n easy)


#42

Well to their points, that’s the same energy it would take roughly in 20-4 (slightly more actually, can do it in 60 energy there) which of course is a much better farming zone… and that zone is much better on pretty much every metric except for sword drop percentage than 4-1.

Then compare that to purple in 7-4, green in 7-5, or blue in 8-7, and red is the most “annoying” special chest to fill if that can be said about anything which has a better than average chance of getting a 4* ascension item for all that those have utterly eluded me as of late from special chests. Yellow is the only other somewhat frustrating one and it’s easier than red to sort.


#43

Went through several farming guides, they say the maximum that you are getting from 20-4 is 13 reds. So 60 energy will give you 130 at best.


#44

Yeah my math sucked, was thinking 100. Sowwy!

Still would maintain 4 isn’t worth doing and that red still comparatively sucks but it’s cheaper energy wise and doable by virtually all players.


#45

The number, no matter what, in 20-4 is 11 per attempt. 3 sets of 3 and then 2 bosses.

I still think it’s worth farming 20-4 for the materials and experience. PLUS you could have crap luck in 4-1 and it could take more, maybe much more, energy, to fill that chest.


#46

One more red chest took 57 energy on 4-1. Experience and materials are better on 20-4, but if you need to make it quick 4-1 is the best, imho.


#47

I complete 11-6 for red in under 60 energy regularly. It is the 2 fixed reds at the end that pushes the enemies per energy ratio over the 6 energy boards even though they are all red. Of those two where another color it would be tough.

I don’t know about 4-1.

is this true ?? I do use gems to save time in chests.


#49

Exact opposite, skipping gives more chances


#50

I copied it from what the moderator TORRE said.

thanks.


#51

The anecdotal evidence on skipping is as Talisax said: you get more chances by skipping.


#52

I just got 50 reds (out of 150) for 24 energy in 6-8 quest.
