The lack of damascus blades in this game for me has grown very frustrating. It’s become a complete chokepoint to my growth in this game, yet others don’t seem to have this issue. Just this week I have seen 7 members in my family of alliances bragging about getting Damascus blades from monster/raid chests, defeated titans or titan chests, etc (including one guy who got two of them yesterday). But in 17 months of playing this game, I’ve only gotten 1 blade that I didn’t get from something that was available to everybody (like special sales or a special quest) and it was from Mystic Vision 4 months ago, and now those have since been nerfed.
I’m trying to figure out how to increase my chances of landing these. There are members in my alliance who have been playing just as long as I have, that have 10+ damascus blades stocked up, and still have more maxed 5 stars than I do. So people are getting them.
For the past 3 months I’ve been skipping as many hero and monster timers as I can, and I constantly finish near the top on titans (12 star) within my alliance. I’m also usually among the better players in war so I thought that might lead to better war chests. And, not that it matters, I’ve also spent thousands on this game.
What am I missing? Is there some trick to getting them?
