So, finally managed to complete a batch of daily quests to open up the Reward Pack and here are my thoughts on all of it.
The system feels like a total joke.
It takes 250 points to open up a pack (basically 10 to 12 DAYS), and will yield something between 361 - 469 gold (at level 6, not sure if it goes up with levels), No Gems, and 78 cards (9 will be rare), that’s an average of about 30 - 40 gold and 6-7 card a day.
So yeah, it’s less than what you can gain from Free chests alone. My current free chests yields 27 - 31 gold, 2 - 4 gems, and 5 cards. So after 2 chests on a day it yields way better rewards in general.
Also, the gains are laughable when you take into account some of the daily quests are pretty expensive.
Stuff like :
Complete 65 rooms in a Challenge - Minimum of 250 Gold (5 runs, 15 rooms a run) in expenses by farming Sharpstone , yields 20 common cards and 20 points
Complete 48 rooms in Frostmine - Minimum of 400 gold (4 runs, 15 rooms a run which i currently can’t make so it was even more expensive for me) in expenses, yields 200 gold and 25 points.
Kill 25 Kobolds - Cannot give a decent estimate in gold expenses since the mobs ARE randomized and those basically only spawns in challenge for me nowadays ( so 50 Gold a run in Sharpstone). I don’t recall the rewards either but i’m convinced it wasn’t worth the cost of completing it.
And those are only 3 of the quests i had to do in the last 10 - 12 days or so…
A few possible reworks might be to adjust the cost in points necessary to actually have a feeling of progression. I think i saw that one of the packs actually cost 375 points ( so basically 18 days of grind ?)
Ideas for reworks :
- Lower the packs costs because so far they don’t seem to be worth the time / gold expenses.
- Better rewards for quests : 20 RANDOM common items on characters you dont use isn’t interesting
- Add experience bonuses for your characters : you complete a quest, every character gains X number of XP that should be based on your fame level. Maybe 200 per level ?
I’m fame level 6, that would be 1200 XP per characters. Most of my chars are level 6 ( 10000 XP needed) so it would be a decent, helpful boost . I cannot say at higher levels if it would help or not though.
- Add Loot Chests to the rewards ( like a secret room chest ?)
- Add more quests per day ( one per 12 hours ?)
