This may not be the post you are expecting. I accept that 4* ascension mats are rare. Approaching the 15 month mark, I’ve ascended two of each color plus a bonus blue. It’s not a lot, but then I don’t have many 5* heroes to ascend anyways.
No, the wall I seem to have hit is with unfarmable 3* mats. I just went through 6 weeks watching Marjana playing with a pile of pretty rings while waiting for hidden blades. Currently I have zero sturdy shields, zero hidden blades, and a scattering of the rest. Except for the 26 compasses of course.
I’ve seen a number of posts from people saying after some time the 3* mats are no longer an issue, often accompanied by screenshots with 40+ of each 3* unfarmable. So my question is: what are you doing differently?
Only things I can think of are:
- 15 months isn’t long enough to be drowning in 3* mats.
- Those posts are from people hitting 12* and higher titans every day and that gets significantly more mats than my 9’s.
- Or perhaps the screenshots come from spenders who accumulate them along with all the other useless stuff that gets packaged with the 4* mats they are actually buying.
So, any thoughts? I know it is the fate of the F2P to end up leveling duplicates in case they are needed for wars, unexciting as it might be. But leveling duplicates to 3.60 in case you get mats to max them in case they are needed for wars is rapidly demotivating me.
