Yeah, DS has never been one that looked very appealing to me. No stat increase from Godlike either.

Huh. What class are you, pineapple?

I’m very much tempted to try one of the ghosts, and I have two rubies left.

Opals are the lifeblood of Vip0; yes please yes please yes please. Epic mythos aren’t too hard to snag from the auction if you hoard your weekly tower gold and the like (Except for Freyja).

Would be nice if they ran more than one at a time with decent cards (Not weeds, pink diamonds), at least as combination fodder.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / [Help]Card usefulness for F2P player

By the time you have enough resources to pull an Awakened off, you should have a good idea of what is strong just by looking at their individual abilities and should know what would fit best in your deck.

Some popular or very effective choices I’ve seen:
- (Human) Crossbow Captain (10/21, 50% chance of stun, great power card)
- (Human) Battle Abbess (3/13, heals 3, Faith 2, probably the default choice)
- I’ve seen a Fencing Master (4/20, First Strike) and Templar (4/12, heals 2, armor 2, STOLID defense: gains +2 attack on your side of the field), the former of which works well somehow (I still think it looks bad) and the latter is obviously a dominant, sturdy vig unit.

- (Elf) Elven Rebel (4/17, Nimble, 3 armor, 5 resistance, an absolute headache to face in 1v1)
- (Elf) Elven Thunder Archmage (4/10, Nimble, 25% stun, thunderbolt for 5 damage)
- Elven Legionnaire (6/14, +1 range, vigilance, SUNDER ARMOUR, which is incredible, double damage to cavalry, and nimble) is one I haven’t seen much of but seems very, very good.

- (Halfblood) Tengu Bloodseeker (6/17, Bleed, probably my favourite ability, and backstab, nice for anti-healing utility and vig)
- Some people choose werewolves; unless you’re a top-ranked rusher, this seems like a waste to me. Sylvi Stalker and werewolf deathclaw look really good to me, and others have vouched for the prowlers and fleshrippers.

- (Undead) Vampire Archmage (3/16, drain life, 50% to reduce attack by 3), I’ve heard a lot of people say this would be good, but haven’t seen it used; it’s certainly a choice.
- (Undead) Wraith (9/6, shadow bolt, soulbound) and chilling ghost (6/10, freeze, soulbound) are some of my favourite looking awakened cards; however, they can be easily eliminated by holy damage. The other ghosts look solid, and 50% fear isn’t to be underestimated.

- (Goblin) Probably not one of these.

- Ogres were released recently; I haven’t seen any in action, but Hercules Ringleader (7/18, 50% stun, knockback 2) and Rampaging Troll (2/17, desperate strength) look great.

More opinion, especially with undead.

Basically, don’t cut yourself short with a lower CD variant of a stronger card (Blessed Elven Samurai has one less armor and resistance than Rebel for 3CD).

You’ll probably never gain an awakened elite due to the unavailability of black opals, but there are way too many choices there for me to try saying anything.

…Why did you write this immediately after they released Tallis for 20 measly silver packs? That card is an absolute brute, and is very inaccessible compared to other powerful candidates like Yumi and Cain.

Giving a tarot for opening silver packs is unfair to the paying players who obtained them through more expensive means, not to say the system itself is fair at all.

All in all, I am extremely pleased with Tallis. Now I just need that elusive Goblin Thunder Mage to fill out the cryptic elites.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Under-rated non-elite awakeneds

I wanted Hellish Skeleton, but it’s rare’r than Dread Champion at AH.
Same thing with Holy Master and Sylvi.
Fun fact: out of all the cards my fave is Dread Champion! It’s blue, soul-eater 2, fear. NOW it’s fright :3 It kicked butt (long before refuge, sanc and hh). But I whole-heartedly agree people make the same awaken. Go with your favorite and not the meta.

Ie: Vampire Lord is decent at legendary against AS tower. It holds itself well against Bane, Nimble and Ogre stages with the underlining factor you have healers at the back.

Dread Champion is amazing, granted I luck out a lot with its fear ability.

All of the awakened ghosts have pretty imposing stats along with soulbound.

Some generally useful non-elites:
- Angelic Flame
- Virtuous Champion
- Elven Rebel / Blessed Elven Samurai
- Battle Abbess
- Blessed Dragonkin

Stock enough silver and you can make practically anything legendary. You can buy epic mythos and event cards on the auction for relatively cheap then use fire opals on them.

Older elites that are still very useful:
- Fenris
- Yumi
- Cain
- Desperate Soul
- Velyn (Very, very useful)
- Rulk

The legendary dragon kings are pretty nice for their damage reduction, with Kaelithus, Tesalos and Valikastraz pulling off some nice synergy.

Some accessible mythos/event cards that I’d recommend you buy as soon as possible and ramp up to legendary:
- Juliet
- Healer Wyte

Some less accessible cards that are extremely powerful:
- Jaraax
- Tallis
- Priestess El
- Simon
- Fire Lady (Not a big fan myself, though)
- Nuwa
- Swift Astral
- Lumineer
- Freyja (Hella expensive)
- Anne Bonny/Calico Jack
- Hamlyn
- Too many Egyptians to list

The above is my opinion. I for one still find the game fun without getting in the top rankings as a free player.

Topic: Swords & Potions / Why move at all?

Each zone has a level cap, and leveling is really a convenient advantage in the game. The next zone will likely start out more slowly, but people will begin to buy harder-to-make and more expensive items more often.

Ranged rune is extremely useful (as if Pegasi could be any more vulnerable) and by far my favourite. I’m just sad that my other ranged skills don’t double damage ranged units like Winged Emperor :’/

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Auction guide?

Would most people be willing to contribute to some effort that records at what final prices certain cards have been sold, and then calculates the average?

I think this would be great, pragmatic approach to the otherwise chaotic auctioning system where some useless legendary will go for 400+ and people scorn anyone for buying epic Westley for more than 50g (I love him1!!)

Any thoughts?
