I agree. This is not only a disappointment, it’s practically insulting. To work so hard and build up the excitement around, only to be let down so hard, it’s insulting. Getting these green orbs single handedly takes so much away from the game. I would rather not get anything at all than get these.
To those who have commented that these are useful in early game / to new players, well, that’s just not true. If you’re having trouble getting souls to the point like you feel like these are valuable, then it’s simply a matter of not understanding the game well enough yet to take advantage of the alternate activities to get souls.
If you are just starting the game and souls are your focus, then here is the approach.
- Concentrate on all activities that give Gems until you get 500 gems
- BUY THE CELESTIA ARMOR!! - this armour doubles the amount of souls you get while wearing it
- focus on arena. The minimum reward for this is typically 1200. But with the Celestial Armor This is DOUBLED to 2400. Also, if you do it on a higher difficulty level, that means even more to be doubled.
This is so much faster than waiting on an Growth orb. Depending on difficulty level and completion level, this is easily between 5000 and and 10,000 souls an hour, if you have the armour.
Point aside, please do something about this growth orb. It hurts the game and the experience far more than it helps.
