I don’t honestly get very much from the silver level hero chests that I’m getting but could push on to get into the gold arena.
However, I’m wondering whether it’s better just to work through the hero chests quickly so as to cycle through and get to elemental chests.
(What I currently tend to do, once I’ve finished a hero chest, is I set up an “Alfi defence” of just a set of 2* trainer heroes that I’m saving up. I then let my trophies go down to about 450 and then try for a straight run of 8 raid wins. I can also pick times to revenge raids that I’ve received when a tough opponent is rolled and when more trophies have been regained so as to make simply rolling for an easy opponent more difficult).
Going for gold arena might get better loot but would be slower. Thoughts and ideas appreciated.
