Topic: War of Omens / Purposed change for Tome of memory

billiska: the first change I need for endazu is for tome of memory to either (1) not get random +1 charge from other card OR (2) when it +charge from ANY source, gets +3 charge
billiska: same could be said about treaty, but that card is already good.
Halfwing: tome is underutilized. it could stand a refresh
Pusq: i see what you’re saying, billiska
Pusq: like cantillation or blood pact, they give tome of memory 1 single charge
billiska: ty
billiska: I like my endazu lategame holding multiple cards
Halfwing: that used to be the defining mechanic of endazu
vataggsh: if you hold 0 cards and then play scrolls + spacebar
vataggsh: you only draw one card
vataggsh: o 0
Halfwing: and why impersonate was so popular
Pusq: that’s almost the only reason i have an impersonate in my biron deck
Pusq: for when i play against endazu
vataggsh: does that really work?
Halfwing: endazu’s hardly ever about holding anymore though
vataggsh: ^

Since there is already a few Endazu cards (veil warden, blood pact) arbitrarily decided not to get random +1 charge from other cards. I think it would now be okay to include tome of memory into that category.

Sounds ok to me. I don’t feel the pressing needs for stolen plan to be changed tough.

Topic: War of Omens / What's interaction between fireship and ...

1. Overseer (reduce the counter?)
2. Gilded general
3. Shrine of rebirth. (saves after exploding?)

If Overseer reduces the fireship counter, I could see an infinite exploding fireship win coming. Which would be quite cool.

Also, can I haz the description on fireship card plz.

========== EDIT

Sypo answered by his experience in beta
that the answer is ‘yes’ to all 3 questions.

Topic: War of Omens / Why did the Devs change how Daily Quest Draft Tickets are awarded?

I think about why it’s 5. Maybe that’s the number of working days in a week.

Then I think about why the hero level for the final upgrade of hero card is 28 then I realized I know nothing.

Topic: War of Omens / Veil Warden bug?

Whenever +charge is permanent, it will be written with the word ‘permanent’ on the card.
Veild Warden description don’t mention +permanent charge, so the behaviour is likely intended.

It works the same way for Ibshuk. Which means it is probably intended, otherwise it would have been fixed since Ibshuk came out.

Topic: War of Omens / Issue with Strategem

Did you miss the change to strategem? The card is now:

Take an extra turn
Max 2 consecutive turns
Destroy after use

This means you can never get 3 turns in a row.
If strategem was played when you can not get a turn, it will not activate immediately.

Topic: Clicker Heroes / How does one get to 35 clicks/s

I’m using ubuntu linux and with this command:

xdotool click --delay 1 --repeat 10000 1

Will click 10000 times with delay 1 milisecond between each click.
That is, I simulate clicking 1000 times per second.
However, the “most clicks per second” statistic will only register 80 clicks per second.
So, I believe that is the limit imposed by either the game itself or the environment I’m using.

Note: I do not abuse this. (or use this regularly.) It was done as an experiment.

Topic: War of Omens / 1 supplicant, 1 vintner, 3 tortoise

I just had the privilege of playing the following instant win combo in tourney today:

1 supplicant, 1 vintner, 3 tortoise

Start with 2 gold -vintner→ 1 food -supplicant→ 1 magic -tortoise→ 3 gold. And repeat.

I thought I would share that. so we can ponder about its brokenness.

God, this deck is perfect. I’m going to keep using gem to replay and losing intentionally for 7-1 so I can pick a rare I can upgrade. Maybe replace the collect taxes slot.

Topic: War of Omens / Suggestion about early multiplayer quits

Acutally a good idea, but the reward should be the same as if you played against an AI … and … well which AI though?
That is the open problem.

For example:
If you give a reward equals to a GM… but the MP deck wasn’t at the GM lvl, it would be a quick farm.

Topic: War of Omens / An answer to: "How many tort does ashkar need to get infinite magic?"

I’m not sure exactly how to calculate with lackey… But if I were to guess…
every time you gain 1 gold, you would check against 0.1 of ashkar first.
If that fails, then check against 0.1 of lackey-copied ashkar ability.

If this is how it is calculated, 1 lackey would effectively change ashkar ability to 0.1+0.9*0.1 = 0.19
In this case, for profit

>90%, need 19 torts
>50%, need 9 torts

for no loss:
>90%, need 11 torts
>50%, need 4 torts

Good point. Here you go:

In fact, another question I really want to answer is:

What is the chance that, starting with 1 magic and x number of torts, you can continue to feed for at least y times.

I guess this is similar to what buso did in his excel… Maybe I will explore this later…

You’re welcome, I have been wondering too.

Topic: War of Omens / An answer to: "How many tort does ashkar need to get infinite magic?"


it’s 17 tort for 50% chance. Good question. I should plot a graph for this….

Here is the extra code to produce the graph:

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

N = range(1,100)
profit_chance = [sum(bin(0.1,n)[2:]) for n in N]
plt.xlabel('number of torts')
plt.ylabel('chance to profit')

Graph starts at 1 tort having 0% chance to give a magic profit.

Topic: War of Omens / An answer to: "How many tort does ashkar need to get infinite magic?"

The full question:

Suppose Ashkar only keeps play sacred tortoise.
How many sacred tortoise does Ashkar need to have such that
90% of the time he is fed a magic, he will profit in magic (gain 2 or more magic back)?

The short answer:


The long answer:

Here is the python code I wrote to find the answer:

from itertools import chain

def bin(p,n):
    """Give a list P, where P[k] is the prob of exactly k proc in n independent trials of each prob p"""
    # obviously len(P) = n+1
    if n < 1:
        return [1.0]
    Q = bin(p,n-1)
    return [x*p + y*(1-p) for x,y in zip(chain((0,),Q),chain(Q,(0,)))]

# Find the first n (number of tort idols needed for)
# a 90% chance that ashkar will profit in magic each time he get fed one
for n in range(1,100):
    P = bin(0.1,n)
    if sum(P[2:]) > 0.9:

print n

What do we get from this?

It’s not as easy as people might think.
I heard some people guess the answer as only 7.

Topic: War of Omens / Best Tournament Pulls?

I hate to put on yet another ashkar deck, but here is what I just had:

curry favor
spy network

Cards are ordered so you can see the combo clearly.

Now for something that is not Ashkar, a monterferro deck (+1 restock) I had:

stolen plan
…(can’t remember the rest)

This one is surely harder to play than ashkar, but it was very strong.
You start by ursury out (multiple times if you can) and try (hard mode) to survive by
(1) mayhem what ally the other side bought
(2) stolen plan to disrupt the other side

Then tort+devotion and infiltrate will get your money going even further.

The game ends when your opponent bank is constantly empty by your stolen plan
or you go infinite on tribute or kill before that with insquisitor.

I think I got 7-1 or 8-0 from this one.

Captain obvious reporting in!

winning >= 7 matches in a tourney lets you pick a card you used as a prize.
If he had a rare card in his deck, he would have gotten that as the prize which is the best possible reward to have from a tourney. However, if you have no rare cards to pick… it’s kind of lame because picking a scarce would be considered a bit worse a reward than even a gold pack. Could have just won six matches in that case.

Peace out!

Topic: War of Omens / Suggest to lower empowering seal charge cap

Lowering empowering seal charge cap makes sense, and is a buff. Maybe to a max charge of 5. Here is why:

  1. There is only a few anima that can benefit from more than 2 activation of empowering seal.
  2. So scribe/cantilation can better charge something else. Just like how we don’t want to charge tome of memory using scribe, we don’t want to overcharge empowering seal with scribe/cantilation either.

i have more forum post than you so respect mah authoritah!
also, learn how to take a critic.
Proud to be a hater.

The man has stated his unwavering position, so I guess we as the WoO community have come to an understanding? I’m not hoping to change anyone’s behaviour, but I hope some will find it more peaceful to use the forum after reading this post.
