To trait or not to trait - that is the 2.0 question:
Whether ‘tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The goblins and Maws of outrageous fortune
Or to take arms against a sea of Mercies,
And by opposing end them. To trait- to ascend-
No more. And by ascend to say we end
The heartache, and the thousand natural nerfs
That troops are heir to. ‘Tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wish’d. To trait- to ascend.
To ascend- perchance to defend: ay, there’s the rub!
For in that tier of defeat what stones may come
When we have shuffled off this Immortal Trait,
Must give us pause. There’s the respect
That makes calamity of so long a week.
For who would bear the whips and scorns of Dark Master,
Th’ oppressor’s Bone Dragon, the proud man’s Sheggra,
The pangs of despis’d Hobgoblin, the law’s Paladin,
The insolence of Tyri, and the spurns
That patient merit of th’ unworthy Peasant takes,
When he himself might his 4-match make
With a bare board? Who would these cascades bear,
To grunt and sweat under a weary turn,
But that the dread of something after death-
The undiscover’d troop, from whose bourn
No invader returns- puzzles the will,
And makes us rather bear those spells we have
Than fly to others that we know not of?
Thus conscience does make cowards of us all,
And thus the native hue of resolution
Is sicklied o’er with the pale cast of skulls,
And enterprises of great glory and gold
With this regard their gems turn awry
And lose the name of action.- Soft you now!
The fair Dryad!- Nymph, in thy Orions
Be all my teams rememb’red.
…sorry for off topic, but I couldn’t resist
To be on topic: as I am finding that traiting the troops I want to be difficult - I don’t play enough to buy tons of the glory packs each week, especially on 300-glory weeks - I may as well just spend some trait stones on other troops that I may someday want to use, or that help me push a kingdom over to the next star level. I try not to blow all of them at once, but it is a long process for me, as I find I rely more on luck of the keys rather than purchasing packs. I have teams I hardly use that are nearly fully traited, and my main team has only one trait each…
