Topic: Rise of Mythos / Advanced World Boss Guide

Most important thing is having a good team. Working with people you don’t know is recipe for disaster. This way you avoid duplicate cards and having like 4 priests on a team. Knowing your teammates tendencies and cards is priority.

Recognizing patterns like crosses come out turn2 on angel level, angels come out turn 4, righteous judgement turn 5, etc..

I am opposed to most creature cards over cd3, even mifzuna or callista since by the time it reaches boss, a cd2 card can be doing damage. Freyja too slow, but lionroar helps as cooldown less. Now with laurel, yumi isn’t worth the time.

With faeries now, they also are very good in wb, but only if one person plays it, since 4 people playing faeries can’t get the boost of conjure, plan b, thoth etc.

Also xbows (cd2) are really effective since they can be swift raided and go behind the fast moving creatures.

Frankly we should ask that gamebox team what their strat was, since they routinely got 120+ damage, and made everyone else not do wb for a time.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Dark Champion

What’s surprising that after couple months people stilll try to be dark champion.

Albeit, only noobs and whales are trying, no one in between really wants to waste the gold.

Still, since it costs nothing to be adventurer and times are 30 min sometimes, you usually get one or two afk people since they have nothing to lose by being adventurer, only screwing up their teammates which I’m sure they don’t give a f about.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Best/Worst excuses for losing in arena

I hear the same old whiny excuses when people lose. Here are some of my favorites:

1) I’m drunk
2) You got lucky (crit, block, etc)
3) I got disconnected (sometimes valid)
4) I got distracted (cat/dog, son/daughter)
5) I got a bad draw

Just take your lumps like an adult and admit when you got beat.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Building the best RUSH DECK

The fact that Honzo has made 2 posts, which are exactly the same post, suggests he is on the newest server.

He’s probably the last priest rusher since that deck won’t get top 100 anywhere else. Grotesque Goliath?! Any deadly blow, petrify, or sorann will stop that rush cold.

Right now plan B, premed, fairy hybrid, and thoth is the way to go for ranger at least.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Skill Banish

How does this affect pan’s use? I thot the skill cards would literally show cd 99 but now that I know it’s only to its max, then pan could still get skill cards out theoretically. But I’m just guessing since I haven’t seen it in action.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Rise of Mythos 2.0 is here! (Maintenance Patch Notes for Dec 16)

Why is no one talking about Redmaw Addlemace (Ogre + Demon = Barbarian)?

It’s a game changing card!

Skill Banish: CD of all skill cards in a random enemy’s hand set to 99

So in 1s, swift death hands, djinn hands, any mages hands are basically stuck until you can kill Redmaw with the cards u have ought there. Cause you can’t kill with the any direct damage skill cards obviously.

Otherwise, stick Redmaw in the back and watch as opponent hand fills up with useless skill cards that they can’t use.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Cant play any battles

We all experienced the same thing at the same time.

League, arena, tower, challenge hall, everyone got kicked out and now no one can enter and fight so basically it’s like maintenance right now, can ’t do anything.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Awakened Non-Elite Suggestions

Elf Legionnaire was my first and I still love him. Would get a second if I could.
Elven Rebel is a super tank, works in all decks.
Abbess is ok, but needs time to build up and cd 6 is kinda long.

I would love to get awakened Blessed Dragonkin but that requires dragon fragments which probably won’t be available for non vip till 2020.

P.S. Ask Zeez what he thinks about his awakened skystone nid.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Alt. accounts

Shakira here.

I have never claimed to be the best vip0 player. I have never made post season (cross top 32 tourney) ever.
I don’t even carry vip0 as a badge of honor. It’s kind of embarrassing to know I’ve spent so much time on this game and have yet to spend money on it.

I’ve posted my vip0 status b4 but this is the last time. My lips don’t lie.

Just to prove that this is recent, date is noted.

Just to show that lots of luck is involved, even with vip0. To get godly equip is very lucky and I acknowledge that. I have spent all of my gold just trying to upgrade armor alone. I can say I’ve worked hard to get the cards I’ve gotten through 100% combine and some luck in AH, but every day I learn something new in this game so I have room to improve.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Dark Champion

It would help if people would bring a proper deck. Things with magic resistance (Velyn, DS, Angels). Or general tanks (Lawrence, Rulk, etc). Vig/Sorann to deal with portals.

But most importantly, take out rage (tower in row 2) first. It seems so obvious but still, 3 weeks after event starts, I feel I still have to mention the obvious.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / [Chinese Cards] Upcoming Cards

It was a cheap way to win, but helsing did win showdown with detonate and mareth (Stony ruins). We made lots of mistakes, even went with wrong decks but detonate can be the only way to beat mega whales.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Dark Champion

Already the wait time has increased as the number of people willing to pay 50 gold has diminished. People are realizing that unless you are a whale, you’ll probably lose to the adventurers. So less dark champion volunteers, less people to fight, and 30 minute wait times.

I give this event a month before it goes the way of the dinosaur.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Dark Champion

Seems lot of people are willing to pay 50 gold for 30 pvp medals. If you have a decent deck you should win as dark champion everytime.

Unfortunately for the challengers, too many new people who have no idea how to play, make it easy for the dark champion to win.

Each tower is 66 health

Row 1 tower – reduces countdown 2 of each boss’ cards
Row 2 tower – does 3 lightning damage to every enemy creature
Row 3 tower – reflects physical damage
Row 4 tower – reflects magic damage

Some of the spells I’ve seen of the dark champion include:

Obliterate – swift deaths whole hand of single hero
Demonic Spawn – cd1 skill that spawns a gate anywhere u like where demons appear, most likely in front of enemy. 100% return rate
Nemesis -cd5 Lightning damage – 55 damage to all heroes and creatures
Devour – mass 5 damage to all heroes, heals by same amount, 100% return rate, cant be swift deathed
Healing Wave – cd0 – Heals all like aleks
Bag of Tricks – returns 3 skill cards from grave
Marshall forces – reduces cd 5 of all cards in hand
Terror – returns all creatures to summoners hand
Piercing scream – 6 ranged damage to all units, knocked back 2 spaces
What’s yours is mine – doppelganger of every hero for 4 cards total copied

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Remove Pan

The reason rangers dominate is like Cheesecakeluv says: There are a variety of ways to play them.

These are just some of the leading rangers in Stone Ruins:

Blarbal is imho the best at pan deck because he mixes in some powerful awakened cards.

Soleil is imho the best pure ranger rusher with all his godly creatures and skills.

Saint can run whatever he wants be it power, pan, or rush, but he is currently doing pretty well rushing with gates of betrayals. (And the bug that still remains with it)

As for many of the top rangers, I see Kaostheory, PRimmAT, ChaosAngel2112, Bow2Me, Overseer, Pervepic, st29 as pure rushers, but they mix in different types whether howlers, or mifzunas, tariel, or other low cd units.

That leaves DustyGazongas, Karpov, astralmagic, anthonyroias, and Henrique as the really consistent pan decks besides blarbal.

Myself, I run different decks in 1s, depending on who I see in arena. If there are a lot of rushers, I run an anti-rush deck. If I see a lot of whales, I run a pan deck. If I have no time and want to get my daily 5 out of the way quickly, I’ll rush. If it’s hard to predict what my opponent is running, I run a power deck.

However, painting all rangers with the same brush doesn’t portray an accurate picture of how many actually run pan decks. In my experience, I face the same number of rushers as I do people running pan decks, and that includes a fair number of mages and priests who both rush and use pan (Aang, Ray, GrainIsBack, Majeral, etc..)

The outlier is Zyli (and HellFyre) being the only warriors able to consistently be in the top 20. So warriors have the most to complain about I would think.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Veloxia

Just watch the very end of that 90 minute video, say 1:30:45 mark, where 2v2 finals happens and one team takes out 1 player with one turn of veloxia, callista, jaraax, sylvi, and mifzuna (buffed and military charged). Then it continues on for a bit until same thing happens to other player, 1:34 mark and beyond is over.

We should be grateful to the monster GM for keeping veloxia out of our version of the game because it absolutely makes it a one trick pony game.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / WB need to be fixed

Right now one team dominates wb (Kong1) so thoroughly few other teams bother going beyond minimum pts. So wb doesn’t get killed, and no one gets fatal.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Advice for a long time player

Get silver from usual places (boss, tower, seaport). Do multiple runs of map 13 (I find 13-2 easiest and fastest). This is because of some bug where map 14 you don’t get as much silver as map 13. Sell off event items like horsehairs, soccer balls etc..

Most importantly, get to 3000 points during forbidden zone event to get 1.2 million silver. Also during fz, exchange only when silver is the reward (or gold). Don’t exchange for stupid crystals.

I’m vip0 and can make 400K silver a week, but that is also because of guild help from showdown and other perks.

If your list is the only things you’re considering here is how I would rank them from best to worst:

Elven Legionnaire (6/14 awakened is amazing)
Battle Abbess
Werewolf Fleshripper
Xbow captain
…all the rest would fall under I wouldn’t bother upgrading to godly.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / The Screenshot Thread

We had the same thing, our team quit 10 minutes b4 the end of world boss since our lead was like 20 and the boss wasn’t going to be killed so we shut it down. One of our teammates (who we randomly played with) sneaked away and did more so he/she got the only max damage chest. Suffice it to say, we were pissed.

Lesson: Never do wb with people you don’t know.
Lesson #2: Ontar might be that kind of person so be warned.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Last ditch effort to prevent Kong 4 merge

What’s done is done, now we have to figure how to move forward so we don’t have this debate again.

I think determining a fair compensation to kong1, to course-correct the over-compensation to kong4 should be considered.

2 fire rubies 5 million silver seems fair to me.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Merge Compensation Absurdness

The very top of both servers will not change with this compensation. Whether belugas or saint has 5 more godlike won’t change the fact that they will be in tough against aang, blarbal, etc.. i.e vip10 players will be status quo.

It’s the vip0-vip5 who will suffer. Mostly vip0. The middle and lower class which comprises most of the player base will all of sudden see an influx of level 50 and under having overpowered cards that will cause many players to become disheartened at the discrepancy between their level of cards and kong-4’s new godly cards.

Topic: Star Era / can not load game S17 18(fixed)

I hate to pile on but, with 50/60 days for login for limit break sirius, the server down means I lose alot of time invested in this game. Do they give compensation here or not? I’m guessing the latter.
