Topic: Castlot / Understanding the New Scroll System

Yes but that will require 3 purple ults of the numbers you want. 36 green scrolls for 4 purple scrolls. That you can recast into 1 purp ult. 144 green scrolls for 3 purp ults. Combine those for 1 yellow ult. 432 green cards for 3 yellow ults. My way, 27 green scrolls for 3 purps. Combine for 1 yellow. Repeat 3 more times. 104 green scrolls used. Recast those 4 in an ult. Repeat 2 more times. 312 used for 3 yellow ults.

I believe my math is correct, I’m not 100% sure. Ive been up for a very long time now and tend to become mind boggled after being sleep deprived.

Another thing that may work even better.

Instead of trying to get ults from green, get them from yellows.

Recast yellows instead.

Example: Yellow Prod I, Atk I, Def I and Training I. These will make 1 yellow ult.

Since your trying to get ults the numbers of the prod, atk, def, and training will not matter. As the ult will be randomized either way. This may be a quicker way. You just must rely on recasting those yellows into the right yellow ult.

Topic: Castlot / Understanding the New Scroll System

This new system can be good. And it can be bad. It will take a little bit to
upgrade, but now everyone has much easier access to ults then ever before.

Synthesizing

When synthesizing, you use 3 scrolls to get an upgraded scroll of the 3 you
chose.

Example: You use Ult I, Ult II, and Ult III. You are guarenteed to get a blue scroll of either Ult I, II, or III.

The outcome of what you get will be random and will be 1 of the 3 scrolls
you used.

This being said, it’s going to take a long time to upgrade a scroll to what
you want based on luck. And not the best idea.

So here’s the idea, if you have a better one, then by all means say so.
Lets say you need Ult I, Ult II, and Ult III. To get these you would have to
either draw them in wheel, or use the recasting system (See blelow).

To get my idea to work regarding sythesizing, you must have gotten 3
different ults. ( We will be using Ult I, Ult II, and Ult III as examples,
as if you already had them). These can be any 3 ults, we’re just using I, II
and III as examples.

Now looking at it, you would need 3 of the same scrolls to get a guarentee
upgrade of a scroll of your choosing.

Example: Using Ult I, Ult I, and Ult I will guarentee you a blue Ult I.

If you wait to get 3 of the same scroll each time it will take a lot of
scrolls of the same type to upgrade to yellow scrolls.

9 green scrolls makes 3 blue scrolls. 27 green scrolls makes 3 purple scrolls. 81 green scrolls makes 3 yellow scrolls.

Now I think I found a way to shorten this, instead of having to get the same
type each time. Lets start off by saying you just got your green scrolls,
Ult I, Ult II, and Ult III. Regardless you are going to need all three of
these. So instead of waiting and only getting scrolls of equal number, go
ahed and combine all 3. You are gurenteed to get a blue ult I, II, or III.

Example: You combine a green Ult I, Ult II, and Ult III and you get a blue Ult I. 33.3% for Ult I, 33.3% for Ult II, and 33.3% for Ult III.

Now you have a Blue Ult I. You just need the other two. For the next step,
you will need two Ult II, and one Ult III. You now have a guarenteed chance
to get 1 blue ult II ot III.

Example: You combine a blue Ult II, Ult II, and Ult III and you get a blue Ult II. 66.67% for Ult II and 33.3% for Ult III.

Finally!!! You now have a blue Ult I and Ult II. The last and final step to
getting this, is to get 3 Ult III for a gurenteed Blue Ult III.
Using this process will have you using less scrolls and will be much faster,
as well as efficient. I hope you all the best in collecting your ults.

Recasting

Welcome to the newest little option involving scrolls. Recasting.
Now what is recasting? It’s the best way to get ults (without the wheel), or
getting rid of spare ults you have just lying around because you have so
many (you luck guy, you)!

First, what is recasting? Basically. You use it to get ults and to change
the current number of a scroll, to a new one. We’ll be going into a little
more detail at this next part.

Let’s start simple. Lets say you have 4 scrolls you no longer want, or want
to change (this can be any color scroll, and any number). You can do this a
few different ways.

Way 1: You can use ANY 4 scrolls and get a random scroll.

Example: Atk IV, Def III, Atk I, and Prod IX. This will result in a random number scroll of any kind (Atk, Def, Prod, Training, or Ult).

Way 2: You can use 4 scrolls of the same type to ensure the same kind of
scroll and a different number then the four you used.

Example: Ult I, Ult II, Ult III, and Ult IV. This will result in a new Ult between number V and IX. You have no chance to get an Ult I, II, III, or IV.

Way 3: You can use all 4 types of scrolls (excluding Ult scroll) to get a
guarenteed ult scroll of a random number.

Example: Atk I, Def VII, Prod I, and Training III. This will result in a guarenteed new Ult of a random number.

Way 3 is the best and most efficient way for a guarenteed ult.

I hope this helps some newer players or players who didn’t quite understand.
I’m sure this guideline have some mistakes, by eh, we’re only human (I
assume)! If you have any other ideas ot suggestions please feel free to
comment below.

UPDATE
Thanks to VoXoV, I’ve realized an easier way as he said.

A much easier way to get yellow ults would be to make yellow scrolls in each scroll type and recast them into yellow Ults. This will make the cost to get yellow ults to be 312 green scrolls altogether. I know this seems like a huge amount, but you’ll get them in no time.

Starting with production, combine 3 greens = 1 blue (3 green scrolls used), 3 blue = 1 purp (9 green scrolls used), 3 purps = 1 Yellow Production Scroll (27 green scrolls used).

Continue this process with the following 3 scrolls and recast them in ults.

Example: 27 (green scrolls) x 4 (scroll types) = 108 (1 Yellow Ult)

To get 3 yellow ults you would do this 2 more times (3 altogether). Your total scroll count would be 324 for 3 Yellow Ults (108 × 3 = 324).

Of course the difficulty of getting all 9 Yellow Ult scrolls will get harder as you go, as they are random each time you recast. This is the best idea to use to get our first 3 ults. After that it becomes luck and to continue to use this way or the way mentioned at the top of the page will be your own choice. This way will cost the less when it comes to green cards but require the most luck. The other way mentioned at the top part of the will cost more green cards but require less luck (some luck still required however).

Always remember. If you end up with 4 yellow ults from many failed attempts, you can always recast them at a shot at the one you need.

Topic: Castlot / [Activity] Happy April Fool's Day

Oh its not so much, I mean $1000+ is practically pocket change. Besides, your getting some great in-game gear. What else could you possibly spent $1000 on that’s gonna benefit your life more?

On a serious note though, that’s ridiculous. If I legit dropped a grand on any game I had better get some seriously good stuff. Guys, I know your games not doing the best on Kongregate, but why do you persist to drain as much money from people as you can? We want events to get gears. Maybe making them sets would be even better. But a grand. Good lord guys.

I gotta say though, I love the description of this event. Was cracking me up thinking how you guys are laughing at anyone foolish enough to spend that much money for this gear.

“Everybody is chuckling all the way!” " Are you the one that will put on the vintage yellow April Fool gear and share with us the good humor?"

Good humor indeed.

Topic: Castlot / Suggestions for Castlot

Hey guys, I’ve been wondering when classes will open. I can’t say when a good lvl would be to open a class, but perhaps adding some in would be awesome.Say maybe lvl 50 you pick a class, and lvl 100 you pick an advanced class.The cost? Perhaps 5k spirits for first class, and 10k spirits for advanced class.

Basic Classes
Governer-Increase all production in current city by x%. (Excluding gold)
Fighter-Increase strength by x%.
Defender-Increase stamina by x%.
Theif-Increase agility by x%.
Thinker-Increase intelligence by x%.

Advanced Classes
King- Increase all production (Including gold by x%) in all cities. Lower armor and health by x%.
Berserker- Increase strength( + ) and health by x%. Lower armor by x%.
General- Increase strength and stamina( + ) by x%. Lower speed by x%.
Master Theif- Increase agility and speed by x%. Lower strength by x%
Mastermind- Increase intelligence( ++ ) by x%.

Theses can be changed at any time, for a price of 100 mp/diamonds. Now these are just simple really. Could go much farther. But I think adding in these might satisfy players a little.

Others-
Basic Classes
Lietinent-increase army size by x%. Lower morale by 10.

Adv Classes
Commander-Increase army size by x%. Lower morale by 20.

The + symbols mean more in that stat compared to normal. ++ means twice as much. Basic classes will have a little rise in said stats, advanced classes having more.

If anything, start with basic classes and see how that goes. So much more could be added to this list of classes, and so many combinations. I just hope that maybe one day, we’ll see something done with classes.

Always Giving You the Best,
Savior

From what I’ve heard, the gold bells are not consumed when claiming the Christmas Castle. So Get them if you can.

Topic: Castlot / Ho Ho Ho Santa Surprise!

I’m curious about that as well. I have the bells to do it, but I don’t want to lose them for a themed castle that only lasts a couple months. That’s a lot of bells to lose.

As Jason said, 7 XL gifts for a themed castle isnt the best deal.

I hope the rewards in our “Christmas Stockings” are decent and not just a few shoddy gifts.

I didnt get my title and castle from that event. I got it from the “Spookiest Story” event. Where these was no time limit in how long I had it. So I have it for good, that’s why i want to know. I’ve had my skin and title for a year+.

Just curious, say I get the Christmas Castle, what will happen to my Halloween Castle? I wouldn’t want to lose it, as I won it in a contest and its very unique.

I think putting in castle skins would be a good idea. Maybe make them very rare, as a way to show off your hard work. Being able to “decorate” each castle would be interesting to see. Just a thought.

Topic: Castlot / Getting Your Jewelry Back!

Just a thought, I think it would be great if we could somehow get the jewelry back we’ve spend on heroes. As you kinda put in the Glaze/Mould funtion after a lot of us players were lvl 100+. So we’ve kinda wasted our jewelry on crappy heroes in arena.

I would gladly pay for this kind of thing. As in diamonds. But I would not pay 1 diamond per level of hero, I would however pay for 1 diamond per 2 levels of hero.

Maybe if enough people agree that they would pay for this (however it for free, or even MP would be nice), that maybe, JUST MAYBE, they’ll add it in the game. I mean who wouldn’t add in a money making idea right?

The idea was pretty good. I like it. By like most playersand some I’ve talked to, there is a tiny bit of lag at times. Not much for me. And the who thing is so cluttered. I had a hard time trying to upgrade my bottom tent. And same thing as WotU, it was a bit annoying having to move a bunch of buildings to get my scrolls activated. Everything else is fine however. My main problem is the bulkiness of all.

Topic: Castlot / contact to GM

I think having 2 GM’s per server would be a good idea. As one GM cannot be on 24/7. So we miss a lot of things. However, there should still be a “Head GM.” Almost like a “Manager” and “Assistant Manager” type deal. But I find at least 2 GM’s needed, no more though.
