To me, it has been exactly the same thing that I envisioned it to be in the beginning. I have done nothing different from what I used to do before PoV.
As a F2P player, my main concern was the tournament and summon challenge. But I am already at 62 tournament battles (25+12+25) and at 246/275 summons (I had hoarded 125 silver coins before PoV started), so I am not worried about either of them anymore. In fact, I have taken @yelnats_24’s advice and started hoarding my silver tokens once again for the next PoV, as the daily single summons is enough for me to complete the rest of the summon challenge.
Overall, I am quite happy and content with it. It is definitely challenging, but perfectly doable after reaching a certain level in the game. My advice to everyone would be to stop thinking about it too much and go about business as usual and you will see that 50 days is a very long time.
And also, if someone does not reach the final tier, please don’t worry, you are just missing out on 1x 4 star AM every 60 days (or 2 if you are a paying player). Rare quests give 6x 4 star AM in the same period. So It’s not a big deal. Just enjoy the rewards you are getting and continue to grow stronger.
