Top 1k is the baseline, top 500 would be the ideal but stretch goal. I already lost at least 3k points on floor 7, because I used a tornado before making any moves since there were a decent number of red tiles. The tornado made a red diamond, which then cascaded itself away and killed all the mobs. I then finished off Jade with specials, thinking I should have an awesome score since I finished in under 20 seconds. Imagine my horror when I saw 15.8k with big fat 0 for match bonus because I technically didn’t make any matches.
Based on your scores you’re well on pace for top 500. Here are my “daily” scores for past Ninja Towers and where I ultimately placed. You’re ~55K ahead of me (14%) right now. I’m on pace with my scores from last event where I finished top 283. I’d actually guess that you may be on pace for top 100, but I’m not sure what it takes to get up there.
Has been a great month for pulls, a x10 pull gave me BK in avalon, and my free pulls gave me Mica
Looking to experiment with micas shared damage with BKs attack up. Both are one item away from the last tier. Also have the emblems to get mica to +20
I’m 55K ahead of you because I have an extra floor on you (on floor 22, so finished up to floor 21). If we assume floor 20+ gives an average of 32K score, I’m “only” 23K ahead.
No idea what top 100 takes, but definitely will need to spam alteration scrolls like mad in the last 10 levels. Definitely not worth either the mats or the effort.
Ah that makes sense. Still think you’re on pace for top 500. I’ve never used anything more than tornadoes and mana (and a few bombs). I’ll keep posting each day. I expect top 1k but aiming to repeat top 500.
Ninja tower with S1 4* and forge items, day 2.
Lost half of Grimm but not due to a mistake, rather due to a test. Watch carefully at the end of the second part. If you didn’t know which triggers first, now you will…
Well done, I’m realy curious about last 10 stages, good luck.
Already did it once, the previous NT, with much less options available and without LB heroes. I already have the strategies more or less developed. So this time it should be easier, despite the restriction of not using non-S1 4* - Gullinbursti helped a lot last time.
Mm, guys, this is the May event thread, move to the Master thread maybe?
Paging @moderators please…!
For the sake of the f2p and c2p players, this time will make a set of videos showing the completion (not competing) of each floor using only season 1 4* heroes (with costumes) and assorted 3* s. And only Forge items (no Hunter’s lodge items).
Edit: Transferring that from the other topic for completion purposes.
Edit: Thanks to @Guvnor for moving the links in this topic.
Video link of floors 1-10, Day 1. Will upload these daily (today floors 21-30 a bit later). Video links of 11-20 floor in post above (sorry for the mix-up). Hopefully everyone can learn something from these:
Floor 31: 760,057
Boards just plain sucked today, wish I hadn’t wasted those flasks “farming” for the right boards, because the delta between my best and worst score was “only” 5k points, with the mean somewhere around 34K.
Also I am reminded from last time that past floor 30 or 35 at most, farming quickly becomes unviable since the oni curses start showing up fast and furious, and rarely do you catch a break in between board moves.
After playing the tower the last few times relativ casual, without many items and finishing in top 5k I thought about trying this time a little bit more.
Started using battle items from the beginning (still moderat, some banners, Axe, mana, nothing extraordinary) and so far works good.
I bookmarked your may post, where you listed every stage with your points and I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU @Ruskin505, that was super helpful so far, also the other post here with all the milestone points from the last few towers giving a great overview were someone stands.
Yep just pulling are pants down with terrible rewards
Ninja rtower waste of time.
Here are scores and cumulative scores by stages since I started tracking.
I like making top 1K because that’s when you get back 20 Tornadoes.
Otherwise it’s just interesting to see where I can push myself to go.
20 more wows
I had strong feeling that I should record my pull…
Slightly behind last month yet I’m using my bigger hitters up front. Maybe it’s luck? Maybe I’m not using enough arrows/axes.
I fat fingered one play and got a curse on Mist. Wasn’t paying attention and got one on Vela. Not ideal.
