Topic: Realm Grinder / [GUIDE] Optimized Gem Grinding

I’m not sure if someone else pointed this out, but if you are at a high enough reinc level then you can skip the neutral phase entirely. That means you don’t need druids.

I am at R15 and I remember I’ve gone through 4 demon runs at the beginning and I even got as far as affording drow upgrades.

Yeah, you have to use gobline.

You can do it like that because it only requires unique buildings this time.

If you think Cthulhu doesn’t have a face, you ARE a Realm Grinder, or just too dumb to open H. P. Lovecraft’s book.

If you think druids are communists, you ARE a Realm Grinder.

If you think demons are capitalists, you are either a Realm Grinder or a politician.

If you think goblins aren’t the jews of this game, you are a politically correct Realm Grinder.

That should happen with merc builds as well when you missclick on an upgrade and screw up the building.
It should be free too.

If you think that not erecting certain builds helps the production, you might be a realm grinder.

If you think you can erect new Ancient Pyramids, you ARE a realm grinder.

- You are the one who said that Artie has “usually 1 obvious roll to try for regardless of situation”, so yes, it sounds like you told people to only roll RRYYBB on Artie.

- Yes it is easy to make dice changing cards that are outrageous, doesn’t matter if their dice change to swords (old Duke) or even dice changing into other dice (Zahal). Even in this situation where a dice changes a dice required for future skills it can still be good, HOWEVER it WILL be annoying as fuck.

- Oh yes, those teams with Dakeza who can only crit once and then give up to two dodges afterwards…lol.

Poukos was already enough, and now we have a second card that forces us to sacrifice dices. Stop with this bullshit, it’s annoying!
How does he burn through dodges anyway? From what I see, that measly 250 hit is tied to an RY skill, which means that he will hit up to 3 times with it, compared to other dodge burners who can do double or more. This also means that there’s no way to make this guy crit unless you either avoid Y or buff him with tons of crit, which is impossible unless you bring out both Telendar and Artie with RRRRBB and RRRYYx respectively…yeah, thanks a lot, whoever nerfed them both. Even if you do crit him, you waste his crits on a 500 hit instead of a 1320 one, so why bother?
And the fact that this guy powercreeps Karkasse doesn’t make the situation any better either.

I liked him in the TCG version of Eredan, but not here.

-Sacrificing dice is not inherently a bad thing, it can force tradeoffs when deciding what you want to roll for. The most boring Heroes are ones like old Artzeil where there was usually 1 obvious roll to try for regardless of situation (RRYYBB).

-Not every card is designed to be able to burn through dodges. It is good for cards to have counters.

-Avoiding Yellow shouldn’t be the toughest thing in the world. Besides, it is good that there is risk of wasting a crit on his Y. The last thing the game needs now is Another Warrior that easily abuses Crit. Crit is already widely overused compared to other skills since it can be so strong.

-His skills may have similarity with Cark, but considering Cark is generaly used as a suicide team buffer, these 2 have almost 0 overlap in synergy. No mage team would consider replacing Cark with him

- Are you kidding me? First, we all know why old Almaria was crap, that is, until she was buffed. I don’t want to see an abomination like her again, but we’ve got not one, but two of these. Poukos may need the tradeoff because he’s stupidly powerfull but I don’t see this guy being powerfull anytime soon. Second, if you used old Artie for the RRYYBB only then you have no sense of experimentation, team support or imagination – RRRYYY gaved 3 crits to the whole team while you auto-losed the match. RRBBYS was also a decent roll if you got your Artie buffed and wanted to make use of his one leftover crit.

- This hero overview tries to imply that this card is decent at burning dodges. I don’t want him to have an 9001x Hit 1 but this is not even “decent”.

- Uh yeah, when was the last time you saw any crit teams? Ever since Telendar and Artie got murdered by the retards who have gone “HURR DURR LET’S BALANCE!!!11111” I haven’t seen any crit teams, only bulwark or +DMG ones. Also, if you are talking about Faceless’ third skill then Kark does it better with a higher cost. Avoiding yellows ain’t a tough job, but it isn’t a practical one either and you better make sure your Faceless is well defended because there’s no shield that can back him up without Y.

- Yes, this guy doesn’t have anything to offer unlike Kark, which is exactly why I don’t see Faceless played anytime soon. I haven’t said anything about mage teams, by the way.

Topic: Realm Grinder / Faction Symbols meaning?

I will not talk about Dwarves or Drows seeing as I don’t have them yet. But I can talk about others:

Fairy: This one is obvious enough, it is shaped in the form of a butterfly so it’s obvious that fairies are represented by it.
Elves: Zoh has been spot on, the Triskelion could reference the faction’s habit of going through a progress (in the form of clicking and FC) then the cyclical activity which could reference all factions, not just Elves, seeing as all of them require casting a spell or two over and over.
Angels: This looks like a group of three people viewed from bird’s eye P.O.V. that have their arms stretched, as if they’re praying. But yes, as Zoh has said, it also represents a trio, which is either talking about Spirit/Body/Mind or Father/Son/Holy Ghost.
Goblins: I don’t know about you but the first thing I’ve seen when it comes to their image was……an angry face. It also looks like a goat head, but that’s more for demons. Maybe goblins are angry or they have horns? Or maybe both?
Undead: The Ankh was a sacred symbol for the egyptians and we all know how obsessed they were when it comes to death. Heck, we even have Anubis, God of Death, carrying an ankh sometimes. It is also an occult symbol which is why the Undead are seen as evil, though not necessarily chaotic, like demons.
Demons: This one is pretty much straightforward, no need to comment here.
Titans: This is probably the only symbol that puzzles me. The first thing that comes to my mind when I see it is that there seems to be someone who carries a heavy thing (a planet, perhaps?) and they seem to get a hunchback because of it (which is why the curve is there). It is quite a good metaphor for a titan’s strenght.
Druids: From what I see, it seems to me that it represents a “ray” (of hope?) at first, seeing as druids are here to sent balance in all things. And it looks like 3 spheres and 3 lines, which could mean Spirit/Body/Mind like Zoh suggested before when he was talking about angels. Either of those sound like they could fit the druid concept.
Faceless: It looks like an eye or a staff, for me. You see, the faceless seem to be a faction out of H. P. Lovecraft. Either way, we can see that someone is controlling those sentient beings – if it’s an eye, then that eye definitely belongs to the “All-Seeing” who watches over the faceless and if it’s a staff then that staff may be used for the mass control.

Exactly.

The Runic Legion is a martial guild. That’s why there’s only warriors and priests, they use the art of war and kriegsphilosophie.

3)I don’t care if you do not count Survival. Most people do. There are only 2 modes in the game where cards can be won, ranked is 1 and Survival is the other. You pretending Suvival does not exist does not make it True

This made me laugh so much.

In that case, I should not care about what kind of bullshit Jason’s spewing out of his mouth either, haha.

This is an extreme Exaggeration. There are many Heroes with Purify that are not Weak:

Pythia is not Weak

Orzine is not Weak

Sakina is not Weak

Netjhim is not Weak

Sael ik is not Weak

Lania is not Weak

Alyce is not Weak

Coranthia is not Weak

Great Duke is not Weak


Some of those are not meta dominant at the moment but they are far from weak. Cards are not either Masters caliber or Weak. There are some Weak Purify cards like Jane (who even has niche use) but a good amount of them are at least solid if not better.

Purify is also better than Eclipse since it has a much lower chance of being useless. It also may be better than skills such as Lightning and Ice. How often do we see Ice Ability cards in Masters?


Kuraying remains trash even after her “buff”

When was the last time you saw any of those cards?

I see them quite regularly in Survival and Unranked with people testing cards. To say a card is weak is saying a card is below average, unless your argument is that 95% of the cards not popular in the current Meta are all weak.

Weak cards are those like Kriss and Bomzar. If you think Kriss and Alyce/Sael ik belong in the same category then I do not know what to say.

Stop bullshitting me with survival and unranked.
When was the last time you saw ANY of those cards being used for real?

SV and Unranked are Real. Is your position that they are Imaginary?

You still have yet to answer my Question of How many cards you consider Weak:

10%? 25%? 50%? 90% (all cards currently not considered Master Caliber)


SV is 1 of the Primary Competitive Modes in the Game. To say otherwise is simply wrong.

If you think a card that is among the Top 25% strongest is Weak then that is a baffling Definition of the word that you use

Survival is too random for it to be a “real” mode. So what if most of those cards are good there? Flammara is #1 pick in Survival whenever you get the chance to get her, yet you don’t see her in ranked much, do you? In SV not everyone gets the chance of playing a decent deck (as in, something like Dakeza + 4 warriors or something). You get to see decks with Bomzar and Asajiro because of RNGesus hating on the player, are you trying to tell me that you use such an inconsistent and random mode for the basis of your analysis, even if that card fights against shit cards? The fact that you say SV is one of the primary competitive modes makes me chuckle. It’s like saying that Dominion mode in League of Legends is 1 of the primary competitive modes (back then when I still played LoL…who knows, maybe I’m wrong).

As for Unranked, it is MUCH BETTER than Survival for the simple fact that it’s not random, so you can test decks there, however, other people will do the same, which means that you may fight shit decks, unless you’re talking about those spineless cretins who play unranked with meta decks. That’s why I can’t take unranked that seriously either.

As for how many cards I consider weak…I can’t give you a proper answer in the form of a %. I can tell you that Asajiro and Bomzar are the worst, and Artie is a dead piece of shit now that he got nerfed. If you’re talking about the cards that listed, I could say this: Pythia is terror/berserk food, Orzine/noble is berserk food, Sakina is berserk/terror food, Nethjim is berserk/noble food (although he does have smite 3 but that’s in the wrongest position there is), Sael’ik could be good on attack mode but otherwise he’s berserk/noble food, Lania is berserk/noble food, Alyce is good enough but still berserk/noble/scarab food, Coranthia is also good but multi-hitters eat her alive and she’s noble food and Great Duke is no longer what he used to be, the only thing he can do is being a good smiter, and even then, if you want turn 3 smite, Dahre’ma/The Psycho dude/Terrifik are better (before you bullshit, Terrifik can abuse berserk as long as you have an RB, something that Great Duke can’t do)

In other words, most of the cards above are berserk food, some are noble and even terror food. Ayir will shit on those who are berserk food, Terrifik will eat those who are terror food and then there’s Deirf Geis. However, I will take out Alyce seeing as ArmandStar has said that (s)he plays her, but that’s only 1 hero.

I would rather take Eclipse than Purify all day, seeing as there is Scarab which proves to be annoying and can make more differences than a puny purify 1. Also, better than lighting and ice? Have you ever played Von Blaztnin or Eikytan? RRY on Eikytan = 600 heal, you’re telling me that a shitty debuff called Purify can top that? Then there’s Von Blaztnin which has 3 rolls and neither of them go below 2.3k damage.

And I want to see that card that is in the top 25% strongest.
