Ok to Devs…..why did they change the “Not so sporeing” objective to objective spent spores only?……if you saved enough for the chest why are you penalized for not playing free play? I still played same amount of time and/or used warps for more…why force people to play event free play?

It’s been that way in all events for at least the last few months…not sure if it was different before that.

I can’t speak for him but most of the epics i have remaining that i “need” are just for global dps buffs and the gear i currently have in those slots is just rares, so it isn’t a really big deal to not open them.

15% to 40% global DPS is a decent jump for just one hero…if you could do that on several, you’ll gain a ton of power.

Using Alan and Firestorm to clear areas waaaaaay beyond what your DPS would normally allow. I finished Raid by tanking and Alanstorming all the way from area 510 to area 600, despite my DPS being too weak to kill monsters normally. I even got to the literal end of the game on area 1248 of Mugwarts, when I hit the 1.80e308 gold limit.
Also, Jack, Groklok and Merci increase your DPS output when your frontline is being attacked by several monsters.

To reach 600, I just stacked buffs..

..and what’s the point of reaching 1248 on mugwarts?

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / A jeweled chest! yay! (Not)

In either case, 4 EP for a duplicate epic just sucks….especially on a character who will never work as main DPSer.

Hi!

I’s a bummer that new players can’t get crusaders from past events.

They said they plan to do something to get old crusaders.

Someone more noticed that seed spores don’t fall like other events?…. Its hard make missions without them.

It’s the same…two per minute. You’ll have 34.5k by the end of the event…more with warps.

Since the update, I am unable to view an ad to obtain the temporary 4 hr buff. Is this intentional, or is it a bug?

Try clicking the ad a few more times. Some of the ads don’t run for me either…but at least one of them works.

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / Jeweled Chest price increase.

My point with that is positioning is everything. This was slipped in, hoping that people wouldn’t notice. CNE also seems to be ignoring the backlash…

Slipped in? Half of the change log post is about the increase.

It’s doubling every 100 areas? Hmm, something is really wrong there. I’ll see if we can get that sorted out sooner than later.

I think the original quest does that too…but ends at area 250 so you’re only facing 4x the stuff

Good update! I’d just like to see a change to the buy all abilities…it shouldn’t buy the attack priority abilities like Jason and Thalia have. Sometimes you want them…and sometimes you don’t.

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / Jeweled Chest Suck

Don’t save rubies. Don’t save jeweled chests. Buy/Open when you get 100 rubies.

-They’re only good for jeweled chests
-The contents don’t change
-There are no gold drops

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / Jeweled chests drop from boss drops infrequent after version 0.55 update.

Since the new map came out, I killed 630 bosses.

I got 213 silver chests and 2 jeweled chests from them. (That includes 74 guaranteed chests from the new map)

Even if it’s a limited sample, it does seem in line with the 1% figure.

Getting duplicate epics is really annoying…maybe there can be a quest where after you get 4-5 duplicates, you get to choose an epic you don’t have?

Increase the damage from Alan’s resurrect to compensate for the huge time increase?

Could we get a “Buy all abilities” button?

Maybe you could choose to enable or disable certain characters from it, based on abilities that change things like creature priority.

Would like 1x added to speed looter.

Sometimes I don’t want to open 5x, but it’s SO slow to open 1 at a time…you need to constantly click (hopefully not in the wrong spot or it won’t work…..and not too many times or you’ll open another chest) and the animations take forever…one card at a time, and each EP shows a slow motion zoom in on the character’s face.

Not exactly sure what the chance is of getting a jeweled chest from event free play…but I’ve never got one (Done around 10 event FP between this and the last event)

Would be nice if there was some kind of bad luck guarantee if you get X silver in a row.

Its about 20-25%, I have 35% this event, but I have had 10% others. Its rng, nothing much to do about it.

I’m getting about 1-2%, nowhere near 20-25% (That would be 20-25 chests per 100.)

You misunderstood i believe. There is about 1% chance for a normal silver to get upgraded to a Jeweled. Having a event silver getting upgraded to a event Jeweled at the end of the run is 20-25%

Ahhh.. makes much more sense.

Actually this whole thread needs moved…. this isn’t a suggestion.

How is that not a suggestion?

So maybe if you reach 10 in a row, you should get a guarantee. That’s not too often…but helps out people with terrible luck.

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / Report a Bug v 2.0

I just got a rare horn (1.5% cooldown) and noticed my cooldown only went up by only 1%

When I add up my horns [101/39/14/1] the total is [50.5+39+21+2] 112.5 but it’s displaying as 112.

Not sure if it’s just rounding down the display number or if it’s functionally less, but either one seems wrong when you have fractional increments on two of the items.

I need some help, guys.
I’m stuck at this level, and my gold only rises if I put Jason by Hermit. But if I do that, my dps falls dramatically.
I only have 2 silver chests to open.
So… ¿What formation can be the best for the last spring? (only level 150)

Thanks a lot! And sorry for that question out of the Event.

Not sure about the finer points, but this should help you out a lot:

1. Click that little green button that says “Buff up”
2. Put Thalia in (any slot), Click the magnify ability, Click his storm rider ability, then remove Thalia if you don’t want him.

(Though, I think Thalia should be better DPS than King Reginald unless their DPS all crusader equips vary a lot – You may not want to buy Thalia’s first ability though, as that can reduce the overall heals)

Given what I’m reading, it sounds like it’s not worthwhile to get Metal Soldierette (yet). I have about 100 idols, and was thinking about going for it, but it sounds like she’s just weaker than Sarah, and I don’t even use Sarah yet. Am I mistaken?

If nothing else, the missions and Free play will give you a little bit of Enchantment Points on Sarah.

Yeah. And if you get an equip in each slot, there’s a 1% DPS achievement…plus another 1% achievement for tanking 15 creatures with her while bat’s sidekicks is in effect.

It will also help with character limited formations…like holiday hoopla, where you can only use event characters.

Plus, if you’re at 100 idols, you probably don’t have too much gear/EP on others yet…so she actually could be pretty good.
