Arena as many say can be skipped.
That’s really the best thing.
The offers? I dunno, I ran Arena for a few days and realised I’m spending more gems than I can possibly recover on 2 deeds, pets. Got the pet up to 20 and not bothered since bar one atrocious run at weekend that took place instead of 15 explore 5s…
That’s the issue with it, it’s a 2014/2015 event being revamped with 2014/2015 rewards.
The Arena event is like having to go back into the dentist’s chair over and over again, with each time more pain being endured.
In explore you can get tokens, souls, traitstones, gold, level classes all in one mode.
Combining playtime to maximise it is a gamers panacea, so explore has good utility. Even if you repeat, there is more than the illusion of progress with gold at least. Which is why vault weekend goes well because it gives gains in other areas as well as VK.
Granted other events have little lustre, like Raid, but Arena fails because it is outdated, a little like faction 500s with skulls giving issues, can be an ugly experience and coupled with its rewards being reduced/outdated etc, it’s an easy target for complaints.
I’ve decided I will probably skip it period.
Now what would give Arena a shot in the arm is an increase in the soul rate, opportunities for tokens and more writs.
If Devs think that none stop playing would give too many of anything, cap the resources. It’s they who allow the none stop play.
How many would do the Arena Event if you got 500 writs and 3 medal drops (like orbs, random) from rewards.
Is that seriously going to break anything??
Not in game but think it’s about 60 Mythics now, that’s 360 Nysha medals.
Let’s say you get 1 Nysha every weekend event or 2 per month from luck in Arena events, it’s still 15 years to get them all without a single mythic being added to the game.
That’s forgetting Imperial Deeds altogether, but even if you got 2 x 500 writs monthly, no-one is going anywhere fast. I mean at that rate it is still less than we were told when AB came out from AB alone.
Nooooothing’s gonna break…,
Fix the rewards and it’s a start at least I guess.
