Some of it are 11 monster and 9-13 monster levels, not 11-17 ones. But that because I have no proof that more monster will drop more, so I preferred focusing on energy and EXP as secundary priorities.
It’s really hard to figure out how the game rolls for items because I don’t know if repeated items were rolled at same time as one or two separated ones. It’s also hard to figure it out because the average for all of them is around 11-12 monsters, getting 17 is an almost impossible event, that would mean 3 consecutive waves of 5 enemies, plus two bosses.
Also, I kinda assumed a few lvls, so this is more an hypothesis kinda of thing.
I made it for the lest energy you use to find item yes there are higher provance that has those items as well but they tske more energy plus these one are the easies one for lower players to obtain items
Yeah, I found 9-1 off your spreadsheet yesterday, but I don’t really see the point to pushing levels other than ostensibly more loot per unit time (maybe, stamina refreshes assuming loot drops equal usefulness which I don’t think so looking at it)… it seems pretty clear leveling slows way down after some point just looking at profiles and their team and player level vs. my own hero development compared to my level , though I guess if one is mostly just looting one’s farms / mines that’ll damp down on level.
You are right: one day of solid farming 8-7 and then feeding on color heroes to my two reasonable pulls increased my ability to clear stuff substantially; part of this is just the newbie leveling curve I suppose but my newbie raid strategy suddenly kicked into high gear, and as I started tearing through 8-7 more easily, pushed up to 11-1 which I’ll try either tonight or sometime tomorrow… I suspect it’ll be easier than 10-6 to clear and that was doable with only slightly better than average luck so if I can improve things, off we go.
For reference for anyone who min maxes off Mai’s most excellent spreadsheet, and this was with some sloppy stuff like not managing resources well as I’m brand spanking new just in the last ~24 hours feeding only on color:
Red 4* 13->30 (first ascension)
Blue 4* 6->20 (first ascension)
Nothing but goodness, owe you a beer or probably several Mai!
But like, 6 and 8 has both 3 energy cost. There’s no reason for you to farm 6 when 8 has a higher drop rate. And this higher drop rate is really important, farming metal ores here, I got 3 in one same level, other provinces only drop 1 at a time. That’s a huge increase, you have to go for the right provinces for efficiency. If you can’t do higher levels, the 8-7 is the most efficient one regardless, it has great EXP and great items drops. Best bet.
You’re quite welcome to use my data, but the stats from the first picture are actually before and after v1.5. The second pic is all confirmed after v1.5 (after 7/1/17, in fact). (You’ll really notice the difference if you compare all the 5* numbers.)
I’m still waiting for 9* data, post-v1.5. Anyone feel free to post some below!
