Is it possible to acquire spider swarm as a troop?


#1

I’ve opened hundreds of normal chests, but I’ve yet to get it to drop. Am I simply unlucky? BTW I’m on ps4 and have most troops save for a few event troops I’ve missed and some legendary troops.


#2

I think it’s not in the chests yet on consoles… (it is for the PC/iOS version)

@nex @Mr.Strange could advise?


#3

I thought spider swarm was a special ability only creature sort of like goblin summon and not an actual troop card


#4

If you “show all” in the troop list with Zul’kari selected you will be able to tell.


#5

Correction. The answer is yes it is possible. You just have bad luck with commons apparently.


#6

Not wholly true, consoles in fact do not have Spider Swarm in chests at the moment.
This’ll likely be changed/fixed later on, when is unknown.


#7

the Spider swarm was about the 10th troop I have unlocked…I have yet to get any legendaries though…My best find was a GreenSeer from My first gem key


#8

Did you get it on consoles?


#9

Yes I play on ps4


#10

I am going to say no it isn’t on Consoles and anyone who DID get it was during a “leak” (sometimes Troops get put into chests by accident, like Summer Imp and Sylvasi).

I am basing this on the fact I have opened over 1,000 Gold chests since the update and have gotten 70+ of every Common and not a single Spider Swarm.


#11

no way its supposed to drop but since i know a guy with summer imp I wont disbelieve.


#12

Finally got around to checking this.

Spider Swarm has been in chests on console since 3/14. So yes, people should be getting it.

Way! It’s supposed to drop! (Only from gold chests/keys, obviously)


#13

Really? I’ve opened a huge amount of keys and have yet to obtain it. Shouldn’t be overly difficult, as it is a common rarity card.

Similar to @TaliaParks, I’d think it would’ve shown up by now. I’ve been able to see it as a troop when using the “Show All” filter, but that’s it.


#14

At this rate I’ll have every Troop at Mythic and 0 Spider Swarms :smiley:

Even though I’m a collector (like to have everything in a game) I can live without Spider Swarm. I won’t be using it in any capacity, not even in Arena.

I would say though @Mr.Strange, it’s very odd I haven’t gotten it yet. Maybe it “slipped out” of chests like some other Troops “slip in”?


#15

what is he the rarest common for some reason, Ive gottem dozens maybe hundreds of all other commons since.


#16

I’ve also opened
1000+ gold chests on XB1 and haven’t found a copy. Statistically, very unlikely.


#17

oh where -oh where did my little spider swarms go? oh where could they be?


#18

It is now! You should see them in-game from here on out.


#19

Just pulled one!

Confirmed.
