I really was hoping for 1 more week before it launched. I am in the last stages of Fairies in my Khel city. With 1 more week I would be into Orcs and would get a better version of the evolving building. And really don't even need the full week. I just need about 2 extra days...
One other thing, you cannot go over 20 points when you collect a beacon. So if you are 19 of 20 points for a grand prize, you will only be offered three of the beacons that give you 1 point when you collect them. I think this will help a lot in the rare times when you are on the final day of the event and need only 1 point to get one last grand prize. In the old system, you could get stuck with the three highest cost chests and no way to open them. With this new system, you would be guaranteed in this situation to get only choices worth that 1 point you need. This may seem rare, but it has happened to me in the past and I have seen the complaints both here and on Facebook from others coming up just short.
If your strategy values the high cost chests over the lower cost, then this feature of not going over 20 will do more harm than good. If you choose a strategy that does better with lower cost chests, then there is nothing to lose by this feature, as it helps you pursue your strategy. The final chest is insignificant compared to all the opportunities lost and gained on the way to get there.
So, what is the best strategy for grand prize progression?The 92 cost chest is best for selecting to optimize daily prizes. Both of the high value chests are terrible for grand prize progress.
Or you can jump right in here:
- Manual Event Chest Strategy calculator
- Here you define your own Elvenar event chest-opening strategy manually (i.e. you specify priorities for chests), and this calculator can tell you what are the expected outcomes of this strategy for all the rewards.
- Optimal Event Chest Strategy calculator
- But why would you want to figure out a strategy by yourself? Ultimately, you just want to focus on particular rewards, and this calculator can figure out an appropriate Elvenar event chest-opening strategy specific for the rewards you are targeting. And yes, you can target more than one reward!
