Its not terrible. up to 8 guaranteed mana gain from column destroy depending on skulls destroyed, then more explosions (2 per yellow, so 4-8 on average) on the rest of the board, assuming it functions like Deep Borer. Only 12 mana cost, so 6 mana with Gar’Nok.
There’s definitely a lot worse out there, like Sibyl of Lust. (Great way to bring in the new year )
Orc Armor is actually pretty good as a trait, since it triggers more or less like Orbweaver’s 3rd trait would. Tickle damage just makes it stronger.
In other news, Earth’s Fury is available this week. In the Soulforge. For diamonds. It isn’t even part of a real-money weapon pack. If you are a beginning player who can accumulate 300 diamonds and the other materials by the end of this week, buy this weapon.
Thinking about all the Weapons I recommend my guild members craft (or buy) – namely the Doomskull Doomeds and various Armor ‘Eliminators’, amongst others – simply because they weren’t around at the time opens up a sympathetic pit in my stomach at the setback to their ability to craft Mythics (or even get all the Weapons).
It’s great that we have a way to get these old Weapons, but it’s still a tax on newer players.
Edit: To elaborate, a tax beyond the simple difference in time played and required to accumulate troops, etc – it’s a difference in opportunity.
Potential solution: Make all weapons craftable-only in the Soulforge during their Event week instead of being offered for Gems in Event Shops; increase the influx of Diamonds/Jewels correspondingly.
Also, right on Faction event day, so it’s sweet gems for me.
Edit : Finish the event, and I really got that free 100 gems without having to farm more.
Fang moor’s Event Rating is 200.09286, over the desired 200, so I decided to not buying Tier 1. Look at this magic math result!
The average score would be 200.09286 x (20+30+40+50+60+70+80) = 200.09286 x 350 = 70,032.501 point. As it’s impossible to get 2.501 point, my score is only 30 point away from what the actual average would be. So freaking awesome!
While scanning my Troop collection for new combinations to tackle early levels of ToD, searching for ‘split’ (‘randomly split between enemies’) yielded no results. It turns out all such text has been updated to ‘scatter’ as part of the ongoing text consistency project (just like ‘Eliminate’ instead of ‘Remove all Armor’). Kudos and bravo/a!
I do kind of wish we had a change log, though, so that I know what to expect/search for, but half a loaf/beggars can’t be choosers, etc. .
This happened to me in the middle of a team-building session recently. So I went from being able to find troops to empty search results in consecutive searches. Talk about confusing! (I had to briefly switch to another app, offloading GoW and triggering the download of the text update.)
