So the top 50 boost is 33% faster health but the top spender boost is only 30%

WooHoo - in the top 50! Oh well it's a nice feeling while it lasts - no matter how short that may be!

But if they all stack on top of each other, it would mean that the top spender would get a 68% faster health boost!

Just raided 3 times and killed about a dozen monsters for about 225 xp and still no box drop. This is not worth the trouble. Will rank up to fast just to get 5 boxes and a low lvl unit.

RandomUser

Is it me, or is a 5% boost in health recovery essentially meaningless? You'd still only be able to get 13 attacks in a 2-hour window.

RandomUser

I think the 30% refers to energy, not health.

Guido69
10-05-2012, 01:08 PM
The real question is, whether you will get a 14th hit within the two hours with the 5% boost.

RandomUser
10-05-2012, 01:13 PM
Well, you need to get to 26% health to get in 2 attacks. By my interpretation of 5% faster means you could get there in about 24 mins, 45 seconds. After waiting your minimum 1+ minutes to complete your first 5 attacks, that leaves a little less than 119 minutes. 119/24.75 = approx 4.8. Even in a perfect world, you'd be close, but not quite to getting in 2 more attacks.

Top 50 is health [boss event specific] and #1 is energy.

Agreed. Free opens only. Someday they might have an event for higher level players where the cost for the intermediate units are worth it. Nah, probably not.

top 250 boost is useless.

you still get 13 hits in 2 hours.

thanks for the thread, Red.

top 250 prize looks pretty useless.

aiming for the #15, #20 arrow units I suppose

I mean it is still a strong unit nevertheless

The_Legend_Shall_Live_On
10-05-2012, 03:49 PM
I think they accidentally dropped the "1" that was supposed to be in from of the "5". I think it Gould read "15%" faster. Then it would have some immediate worth.

Bear in mind they may have a boss unit or future box unit that's another 5% eventually adding up to 15% though it'd be best to get it now. :)

I am still #3 but hoping to get to #15 and then maybe at least OT to #20 since I desperately need units better than dragons and don't mind paying a lot of gold for them.

True.
But if they make the Boss presence time 125 minutes, the 5% enables 15 hits...
0.95 x (1 + 5x 26 minutes) = 124.45

The boost has potential.

(But I don't understand why they didn't make it useful right away... Silly)

Even they change to 125 mins. I don't think you can really finish it in 124.45 mins. lol

I'm at 3. First attempt was with knife -- popped the sucker open easily and got my first. 16 - 20 tries later and using in the main gold, and only got two more. Sheesh. My luck stinks on this one, too.

I'm at 8 with no gems, my best showing yet. The auction events are usually worthless for me as none of the units under 15 will go to battle.

How many dragons does he have at Breeding Den level 4?
If the answer is 2, the player might have gotten the bonus from his first purchase in an updated version of the game where you would have received 2 iron golems, 2 dragons, 2 liches and 2 death knights (reportedly)

If he has a ton of dragons, then of cos he is probably cheating. If not, it might not do you good to go all wildfire on him.

$100 just for 11 arrow, I have had it. This game is going to be deleted. I get 4 crap items for a a arrow so that is 100 diamonds for a arrow! You will need over 50 arrows to get into the to 50 so that 5000 diamonds what a waste of $$$$$

That shock is common to first time buyers. There's information in the forums that will give you an idea of what to expect gem-wise in the events. Here's a breakdown for anyone else thinking of buying gems so you know what to expect.

Box Events:

For One stone/blade/whatever the item is; 120 gems for one without using resets / 200 gems with resets; on average.

For Top 50 - expect to need at least 5,000 gems if bottom is 50-60 items. Add 1500 gems for every 10 items the bottom T50 rises up. Ex, if its 68 then 8,000 gems. Be prepared to possibly spend another 1500+ gems in the last couple hours if you're hugging the cutoff. The better the Bonus, the higher the cut-off will climb.

The smartest and most effective way to participate in the Box Events is to hit one of the Bonus gem amounts in a month ($500/$1,000/$2,000/$5,000/etc) then wait to receive your bonus gems and then do a Top50 when you have at least 10k gems on hand. For the $500 tier you will have 10,000 gems total (5 x 1500 + 2500 bonus gems).

Keep in mind you will be competing with players who regularly receive 10,000-50,000+ extra gems a month.

I'm at 9 arrows all with gold. Much worse return on this box event than the last one (ended up with 20, had at least 14 at this point). Anyone thinking they may have reduced the odds of getting the prized item (arrows in this case)?

Mervic
10-08-2012, 06:12 AM
11 arrows atm, using gold only. Probably need to use gems to finish in the top 250, the way my luck is going.

DIrishB
10-09-2012, 01:52 PM
I'm also on 12. Hoping I can get to 15 before tomorrow when event ends. Will probably have to do a fair bit of OT at the rate the Arrows are dropping (lots of gold, bit of honor, and hardly any Arrows for me in this event using gold). Got 6 the first day and been averaging about 1 per day since (got lucky and got 2 yesterday).

General E. B. Fuddled

im on 16 all gold option one a way from top250 hopefully ill have another good day yesterday i got 3 in a row but earlier that day i had a streak of 11 blnt crazy just got to stick with it through the hard parts then they come in bunches

not really complaining, more like lamenting.. been thru all the box events.. luck ebbs and flows for these events.

for this Horde Urn box event, I had a good streak of 7 Savage Spears in a day, but just got destroyed by the two poor streaks that preceded and followed.. hope I can hit #15.

Good luck to all those for top 250

and the impending boss event coming up...

I was thinking the same thing with free opens, but I finally got 10,000 gold in a box this morning (after probably 30 sorrys in a row). So glad I'm not wasting my gold on the middle option.

I just wish that every time i opened a box it would give a savage arrow. I can get to about 8 or 9 of the event item but then i almost exclusively get gold or honor so it is a challenge even getting to the second tier unit, which at the cost of the gold (ancient spell option every time), its not worth it unless you want the unique looking unit.
