I cannot find an appropriate thread for this thing. The question is: how can we arrange factions by rewards for everyday delves?
My favorite faction is Mirrored Halls. Because a) they have 4 treasure rooms, which empower my team instead of enemies, and also b) they have “Blue/Yellow” color restriction which allows me to earn extra gold with “Thief + Bronzelock Pistol / Mistralus / Scurvy Seadog / Cedric Sparklesack, Blackhawk banner” team. There are good chances to have “Cedric’s Hideaway” room right there and have 600 gold ceiling instead of 200. I make the whole faction at level 50 - it’s easy and quick, and I get about 80 chaos shards (my primary goal in delves) for each pass. Oh, and I also developed hero classes with this team - you may take any class instead of Thief and earn 2 Champion XP for each room.
But with so many factions available I ask myself: don’t I miss something better? I know that people like spending everyday delve attempts in City of Thieves, and with Tinker Town added some may prefer this faction for chaos shards mining. So - what factions are best for chaos shards? And what are the worst?
Here is my list of factions sorted by “friendliness” for delvers:
- Mirrored Halls - 4 treasure rooms, at least 2 level 5 rooms, 4 at most (possible Dark King’s Hoard and Sunken Treasure), good colors for gold and soul mining.
- City of Thieves - 3 treasure rooms, at least 2 level 5 rooms, 4 at most (with treasures), good colors for gold and soul mining.
- Tinker Town - 3 treasure rooms, at least 1 level 5 room, 3 at most, good colors for gold mining.
- Wild Court - 3 treasure rooms, at least 1 level 5 room, 3 at most.
5-20. Sea of Sorrow, Amanithrax, Sunken Fleet, Stonesong Eyrie, Frostfire Keeps, Werewoods, Illithia, Silver Necropolis, Dark Pits, Fang Moor, Crypt Kepeers, The Warrens, Primal Rift, The Deep Hive, Depths of Sin, Fell Roost - 1 to 3 treasure rooms, but not sure, and not many high level rooms to have decent rewards.
'21. All-Seeing Eye - 8 rooms only, but still 1 treasure room and 1 level 5 room.
'22. Hall of Guardians - no treasure rooms and no 5 level rooms, the least useful faction. Yes, “Yellow/Brown” allows to mine some gold here, but there are better factions for it.
I talked about making delves at level 50, but this may be slightly changed for level 500 - City of Thieves looks better because of color restriction “Blue/Purple” (if you have Zuul’Goth, try “HKI / Thrall / Zuul’Goth / Plaguelord + Doomed Glaive, Depths of Sin banner” team). Anyway, I think this list can be improved.
