I want to start with this event, especially compared to last week. Why is this week’s snotstone so much easier than last week? Correct me if I’m wrong, but check it:
Last week: 1 stone per PVP game. 250 needed for all rewards (I stopped at 150) this was WAY TOO many stones needed at 1 per pvp game. Most weeks I can hit all 6 rewards, this was overkill.
This week: 1 stone per orc killed in PVP OR EXPLORE. 150 for all rewards. I could probably get 250 for this one easily, plus you can grind explore for quick stones. Why is there such disparity in how difficult these are to do compared to one another?
About Orc rework: This has been pretty cool so far, IMO. I’m actually winning some PVP games with these guys lol.
Orc: Seems really good for a common atm. Enrage AND attack boost combined in his spell give him some serious immediate strength. Top it off with changing green to brown, awesome. Fire link and armored are good for a common, too. This guy seems WAY better than Dark song, which is sad to me. I might be thinking Orc is a little too powerful, but really, Dark Song desperately needs help still.
Drake Rider: Buffed AoE and auto summon drake on death are nice, I think he is in a good spot now.
Dark Song: Needs help. I think I was more likely to use her before her “buff.” Not sure what it would take but she is EXTREMELY unimpressive. Meh damage, a crummy reduce skill by 4 side effect, and steal 6 mana from two specific kinds of troops?!?!? Make that universal, OR increase the amount stolen from those troops. I don’t find her traits very good, but I personally think the spell needs more work.
GarNok: I think he’s in a better spot, too. His spell might be a bit OP, considering almost any team that he is in will have 3-4 orcs (you want best use of his fast orc spell trait) the spell is almost a guaranteed create 10-11 of each gem, which is kind of obscene IMO. The true damage to ally part of his spell fires off every Orc “when I take damage, gain X” trait, which is a cool synergy, but again just reinforces the point that his spell might be too strong as is, due to the practically 100% guarantee that orcs will be in team comp with him.
These are the four I’ve used in a few battles. I’d like to hear what others think of the orcs, and am I alone in being kind of irritated at how easy this week’s event will be compared to last week?
