Book of deeds have been released so poorly that the element for me is ruined. I bought all the deeds and writs that I was “supposed” to. And this is the first campaign I haven’t purchased (yet) because the last one still kept my kingdoms bottle necked.
So what’s the point of spending more money if the resources I need aren’t going to be given and instead I’ll receive useless resources instead?
I don’t feel like book of deeds are this hard to get on purpose now. I think the person who designed it years ago just forgot to actually scale with time.
This is more like a broken rubber band than an actual one.
I happen to agree with you, and I’ve said so in other spots.
That being said? The Merchant is at least a small step in the right direction, and that ought to be recognised and praised. I don’t play as obsessively and exhaustively as some people do – just using things like the “trophy” count of other members of my guild as a measuring stick – but I do get a handful of Deed offers every day from there. (And the occasional boon from the Angel.)
Although I also play enough that I can afford those offers when they pop up, because I have the steady income of Gems to cover that cost.
But, yes, this is starting to turn into a roadblock. I’ve got roughly two-thirds of my kingdoms at Level 16 and just put my fourth to Level 18, but this is still something that’s among the most common of my roadblocks to Power progression.
The merchant system is sort of helpful for people who need regular deeds for kingdom level 15. It doesn’t even scratch the surface of the problem with books of deeds, and is only a step in the right direction for players willing to spend literally 100,000 gems to progress. No one but the most dedicated whales should be buying those offers to convert into deed books at 50:1.
Posting this not to rehash a tired argument, but for the benefit of any new developers who might read the feedback.
I spent all my Purple books for Ghulvania power-up. Now I need 30 more Purple books to develop Karakoth, Darkstone and Zhul’Kari. How am I supposed to get them? Collect 1,500 deeds of Magic and 15,000 Amethysts? Or craft those deeds from 150,000 writs and 150,000 amethysts? And how can it be possible?
Yup I agree, at 75,000 gems per kingdom using those merchant deed offers that’s way too much grinding and gem spending to level up a couple kingdoms per year. That’s not really a viable solution in my book either.
