the spells gets unlocked at later levels, dont worry about them yet

Thanks for the reply.

Can you show me what you have in your own Perks screen for Dark matter right now? Maybe a screen shot?

I noticed Attack, health and Armor don’t have a max level .
So you mentioned to put as much in Attack but how much exactly? When to stop and put in Health or Armor, or any of the other perks?

Topic: Cave Heroes / Cave Heroes Guide

I have 2 questions:

1) For Mob spells: I don’t see that feature anywhere.. Does this get unlocked at a particular level? For example I keep reading about Speed up spell and that it costs 3 feathers. I have 3 feathers but I don’t see Speed up anywhere?

2) Dark Mana perks: Can someone explain where I should spend my points in this? And should I do a soft reset (ie: Dark Ritual) right away as soon as I reach it? I just unlocked the feature and I have 120 Dark Mana. Should I immediately reset? And again if so, where to spend those 120 points?

It would really be great if the Guide would be updated with a Dark Mana /Perks section.. to indicate where we should allocate our Dark Mana , per where we are in the game etc.

Thanks, Zanatar.

Well this thread is 100% useless, given every single code in this thread is expired or not usable. Are there no codes that work permanently or not currently expired?

Topic: undefeated spider / No defense build. Stage 250+ in 3 runs under 1 hr.

For your quick builds, I don’t see you mentioning anything about what Class to pick during any of your post. Is this because it doesn’t matter which class? Just pick any class?

Topic: BattleHand: General / What are you all going to do with Spike Shield?

Ok understood.. But I guess what I was looking for here, for those like me who do not yet have Power Shield, do you think having two Spike shields is needed? Or worth it?

Topic: BattleHand: General / What are you all going to do with Spike Shield?

For most, this is the 2nd Spike Shield.

Wondering what you are all going to do with it?

I’m not sure if it’s worth having two spike shields in the same might deck? Anyone planning on doing that?

Thanks.

That would be weird if they allowed such abuse.

How is it abuse? The game does NOT give any indication that it can have multiple copies of a card in your deck. The fact is, you can’’t until you evolve it .

So if your a new player, or even a player who’s been around for a bit, and your first duplicate is of a card that you have not evolved. Then what you discover is that you cannot put it in your deck as a 2nd card. There is NOTHING to indicate that you actually can use it as a 2nd copy, but have to evolve one of them first. The game does not tell you this at all. How in the world is a player supposed to know? Not everyone visits game forums.

To make matters worse, the game even has that duplicate card show up as material to level up other cards, when your on the upgrade screen. The game practically shoves it in your face, that the duplicate card is meant to be used as mats to level up other cards.

So no, I do not see how this is abuse. The game dev’s need to take responsibility. It’s happened to me, and I’m sure many others. And it will continue happening.
People are going to unknowingly get rid of likely powerful cards that could have been used as 2nd or even 3rd copies in a deck, had they known. It is very unfair and very misleading.

People who find out after (like me).. should be able to write into support, and get their card back. Because had I known, there would be no way in hell, I would have used it as mats to level another card to begin with. Too many people are going to find out too late, and the hard way. Because there’s nothing to stop it from happening, and no way of knowing.

No abuse here.. just some injustice here.. To myself and others who have done the same thing.

With all due respect sir, there’s no other who have done it and crying out for his own stupidness.

I’m not contending I didn’t do it. I don’t think anyone here is saying that. What’s is in contention, is that the game has no indications whatsoever that’s it is possible.

Using my example above, you can’t honestly tell me that is a fair situation.
ie: The new player gets his first duplicate card . His original one is NOT evolved. Therefore, the game does NOT allow you to put that newly obtained duplicate card in the deck. Nothing in the game tells you that you must evolve one of them first. That is the key point right there.
To make maters worse, the game then adds the card into the pool of mats, when you are on the upgrade screen.

I’m pretty sure it is a safe conclusion, that most people will come too that results in losing the card. a) tried to add the card can’t be added in the deck.. (again game doesn’t tell you about evolving one of them first). b) game shows the card as fodder to level up other cards. A+B = C) Card gets eaten as an upgrade materal into another card.

The only reason I found out that you CAN have duplicates.. Is because of this forum. Had I not seen this here, then I likely would have continued believing you can’t have duplicates. .

One last thing I want to make clear. I’m not crying over my mistake. Luckily it only happened once. (For me it was with Gale Dart).
But you have to admit, this is not a fair situation. They really need to fix this somehow. Maybe a popup when you get your first duplicate, with an explanation on how to add them ie: evolving one of them first. etc.

Aha, Thanks…
It’s a bit misleading from the Devs that they mention that you can use dups to level up other cards, without mentioning, that they can be otherwise added to your deck later.
I’ve already used a few of them to level up other cards! :-(

I fully agree with this.. I just did this, in the current arena we have.. when I got Gale Dart.. it was my 2nd one. I used it to level up another card, because I had no idea you could have duplicates. So I feel horrible that I got rid of a good card, that I see others with Hawkeye, using 2+ gale darts.

The game does NOT explain this, and it’s very misleading.

I even sent a ticket in to support, and their response was that they cannot do anything to redeem it. Really fair!

Anyway there is nothing I can do about it, except move on and accept it. Hopefully I’ll get another one.

Knolls woods X elite or regular?

Is that also what the rest of you do?

Topic: BattleHand: General / What do you farm to level your neutral cards?

I have so many neutral cards that I need to level up.
ie: Interupt arror, Diverting Dart, Combustibolt, Lentil Soup, Epicenter, Spikey Shield, Bleeding Dagger, and Safeguard from the current Arena.

I find the cards needed to level up the neutrals are very scarce. ie: Golden Eggs, Rubber Duck, Magic beans etc.

What have you guys been doing to level up your Neutral cards. What’s the secret.
I’m desperate to level up some of these.

There must be a particular level that you guys have found to be the best to farm for this?

Topic: BattleHand: General / Who to get for my 6th hero?

Ah I did not realize that! Thank you

Ok so what about other factor’s. I get that cards are important. But what about:

1) Knowing what cards a particular character CAN have.. : What I mean by this.. is many of you , who are end game.. have many heroes and cards.. And you know what cards are out there that I may eventually find. Is there any hero , that I don’t have.. that fits this? ie: One that might stand out a head of the others, because they have some cards that I might end up getting, that are VERY good.. putting them ahead of another char?

2) The skills of the heroes I don’t have. Is there a particular hero, that I don’t have, who’s skills are worth getting alone?

Maybe a combination of 1) and 2) above, might indicate a particular 6th hero that you’d recommend ahead of others?

Topic: BattleHand: General / Who to get for my 6th hero?

I get what your saying.. but that’ s a tough one.. I’m in a bit of the same boat as Lucaschr.

I think I will wait until my next 300 gem Gold pack pull. And wait and see what’s going to be in the next Arena event.

Topic: BattleHand: General / Who to get for my 6th hero?

Ok so I have 5 heroes. One for each element. They are:

-Monty: Fire -Magic
-Logan: Water -Magic
-Bree: Nature – Skill
-Jinx: Spriit -Skill
-Brom – Air – Might

So it stands to reason I should get a 2nd Might hero. Which means either:
-Gilda – Water
or
-Fergus – Fire

Should I follow logic and get a 2nd Might.. and if so, which of those two should I get?

Or should I grab another char, even if it means having a 3rd of type.

Thanks, Zanatar.

Topic: BattleHand: General / Maxing char levels without increasing fame?

Ah that’s what it was. Losing dungeons. That’s what I remember reading.

So exactly how do you do that? I mean I guess just go to the toughest elite that I’m currently failing on. Ok I’ll give that a try.

Because there us a difference between failing dungeons vs failing requirements in a dungeon.

Topic: BattleHand: General / Maxing char levels without increasing fame?

I could have sworn I read something here about how some of you are maxing out your char levels before deciding to increase your fame another level . But I can’t seem to find the info.

I can’t seem to figure out exactly how you do that, because any grinding I’m doing , ie : even redoing older and easier levels to grind for booster mats, I am still always increase my fame.

How do I max my chars without increasing fame? And can I not grind for booster mats in the process?

Topic: BattleHand: General / How hard is it / long does it take, to get the Arena prizes?

Well I think I’m doing ok. I’m currently at : 285 score. So 500 to go. But I think I’m on track. Ahead of the race as they say. Just worried, that the weekend will cause me to lose time, as I tend to be busier on weekends, then weekdays.

@T0nd3m0na1: How are you picking out chars with low XP? As far as I can tell there is no way of seeing the stats of a party you are about to fight, until your in the match, no?
Not sure what you meant by that then, ie: “Picking out the new characters with low hp”

Topic: BattleHand: General / What is the best map to farm the Non elemental boosters?

So you know those boosters like: The duck and Old dice , used to upgrade the non elem cards for your chars.

Where is the best place to farm these?

Yes I know I can see by looking at the loot for the various dungeons, as to which ones has it. But I’m asking if there is any particular dungeon that you have found has the best results for getting the non elem boosters.

Thanks.

Topic: BattleHand: General / How will gems be earned , when achievements and quests are done?

I’m curious to know, there will always be a way for FTP players to gain gems? I find already at fame level 7, that gems are received at a much slower pace, given the quests are harder to complete and achievments are harder and longer to achieve.

So will there be a way for FTP players, to routinely get gems? Or will I never again be able to open packs, once quests and achievements are tapped out?

And yes I did read a thread saying that the GM’s sometimes give out free gems. But that’s not a routine way to achieve them. I’m looking for a daily way to get gems on a regular basis.

I don’t mind buying a few gems to support the game.. And I likely will buy at least one pack or deal at one point for support towards the GM.. But I’m going to be primarily a FTP player, so I hope there will be a steady source of gems somewhere.

Ok, sorry for the questions.. if you don’t mind my asking two other quick ones.

1) What’s your definition of casual play in this case.. 1 hour per day spread out, , 2 hours per day etc?

2) How long does the arena usually last?

Topic: BattleHand: General / How hard is it / long does it take, to get the Arena prizes?

I only want to get the cards.. No further.. Unless that is the end goal.. I dont’ know how far in the rewards are.

Hopefully it won’t be too long of a time commitment I’ll have to try it out and see. From the responses, it doesn’t sound too bad.
