Especially when you consider that using Cedrics for second and third elite levels for lesser troops will save you thousands of souls, yes, this is a very good thing.
Cedrics currently remind me of Gold Rings in Delves, which completely outnumber the white Coin Purses easily.
While the extra Cedrics aren’t bad, it’d be nice if the rarer medals were bumped up in drop rate.
No point in grinding if the end goal is out of reach and right now the legendary and mythic medals are nearly non-existent.
For the sake of research:
Medal of Aranea: 1
Medal of Cedric: 5
Medal of Yasmine: 2
Medal of Gaard: 2
Badge of Anu: 1
Badge of Cedric: 2
Badge of Yasmine: 2
Badge of Gaard: 1
Token of Nyasha: 2
Token of Anu: 2
Token of Cedric: 2
Token of Yasmine: 1
Token of Gaard: 2
I’ve reached the same conclusion.
The distribution rate is very likely a two-ended bell curve on tokens to not only make it hard to finish the rarer medals, but also to not make it too easy to medal Common cards (unlike weapon upgrading).
When the devs create new systems, they do so with the goal of a long-term viewpoint. Obtaining medals and medalling troops is supposed to take a very, very long time to achieve. It’s the next Zuul’Goth-like chase. And unlike, previous long-term goals, the devs have created a system where they can create new mythic or similarly super rare medals for players to chase at their whim, forever and ever for the remainder of the lifetime of the game.

Updated total tokens:
I guess this is what happens at difficulty 12 …?
4 Anu tokens, 0 Nysha. Rest all Yasmine, Cedric, Gaard. And I fight D12 95% of the time. It SHOULD scale with difficulty level, but it’s clearly not.
Huh, looks like I’m getting lucky with Nsyha but unlucky with Anu. I have 115 in total so far.
|Gaard: 18 Tokens (Common)||15.7%|
|Yasmine: 18 Tokens (Rare)||15.7%|
|Cedric: 52 Tokens (Ultra-Rare)||45.2%|
|Aranaea: 19 Tokens (Epic)||16.5%|
|Anu: 4 Tokens (Legendary)||3.5%|
|Nysha: 4 Tokens (Mythic)||3.5%|
Difficulty 12 and some luck with the Nysha medals
120 so far
My totals thus far:
Cedric = 75
All others = 85
Mine so far (98 total):
Gaard - 22
Yasmine - 18
Cedric - 40
Aranea - 16
Anu - 2
Nysha - 0
I guess difficulty levels scale token rewards like higher levels of keys … difficulty 12 = “gem key” analogues where the thing defaults to Ultra-rares? Yeah I’m grasping at straws here, beats me.
No, I don’t think it does. Once I got it high enough, I’ve only done D10 or D12, and have zero mythic tokens to show for it.
I didn’t see anybody answer you directly, so go to casual pvp and set to normal. No need to do explore on warlord iv. Unless u want to.
Thanks @ChunkyMono , after that was mentioned I figured out how to check and verified I was on normal mode.
