I’m a fairly new player, obviously at lvl 56, and the new patch has me pretty frustrated. All of the enemies I’m facing in quests have quite a number of traits and I, of course, don’t have any. If I had a bunch of resources saved up, I could open hundreds of chests to get the traitstones needed to upgrade my troops. However, not knowing this massive change to the game was coming I don’t.
I’m losing at least five out of six quest battles where I used to lose maybe 1 in five or even less. If I had started playing this week, I likely would have amassed some traitstones during the course of my journey to lvl 56.
Not sure I have it in me to try to farm for traitstones (considering how often I’m losing) looking at the 1.08 traitstone drop rate from an earlier forum post.
TLDR; Starting the patch at lvl 56 when enemies get traits at 50 puts me in a big ability/power slump due to not having traits.
