Thank you all for your responses!
To answer some questions: I am not in a great guild and we haven’t reached 40k seals ever. I stay in it for several reasons, one being my hubby is in it. I realize my choice to stay (for now) is hindering my progress.
I do not use gems to open chests, just keys. I play the dungeon every day and usually buy the gem bounty. I have enough diamonds to craft a mythic, it’s just overwhelming trying to figure out which one to craft first. Open to suggestions!
I also realize that my level doesn’t mean anything to the game, I just thought I’d have at least one by now.
I still don’t know if I should hoard keys (wait for new mythic release) or use them as I receive them, I’ve tried both.
I did not want my post to come off as complaining, as that was not my intention. I was curious if my situation was normal. I only have my hubby’s account to compare, he is level 402 with 4 or 5 mythics already.
I have some really great troops, but am still missing some awesome legendaries. The troops I have now can’t be improved upon and I need some stronger troops to be able to progress further in events such as the raid boss. Being a late-gamer, I am missing some powerful weapons too, paired with no real mythics, I am taking a beating! I have ascended a few troops, but those precious orbs are hard to come by and I am very selective in who I ascend.
