I guess this is one of the anniversary events Lilith promoted so passionately on their Facebook page - the "Special Edition Avatar" event. I wouldn't count the "Gold Chest Extravaganza" which we can see on a weekly basis, right? So besides the new hero, this is supposed to be the anticipated event. Let me note that I just spend €99.99 (no, not dollars in my AppStore currency is fixed to Euro which cost me $112.72) which is for the 8000 pack on promotion (16000 diamonds in total) from which I needed 12000 diamonds to summon the Li Twins. This was to be expected but here comes the interesting part - in the event description it says:
Promote the week's new Conjuring Stone Hero to 5 stars by this Saturday and earn a Special Edition Avatar of this Hero.
Now let's clear things out - I have to promote this 3 star hero to 5 stars by next Saturday. Let's think about this one...hmm...This is 100 soulstones to 4 and another 150 soulstones to 5 stars which in total will give you 250 soulstones you need to somehow magically obtain. The question is how? Let's make a check list:
- Provided heroic instances to farm the soulstones during the event period - ⊠
- Provided special shops to farm the soulstones during the event period (like Crucible Supply Wagon, Guild Emporium, Arena Armory, Champion's Corner, Legendary Shop) - ⊠
- Provided Interstellar Merchant to purchase soustones during the event period - ⊠
- Provided Mystic Ruins to have a chance for soulstones in order to farm them during the event period - ⊠
All of them are checked as ⊠ - unavailable which leaves us only with one option and this is the Summoner Circle, more particularly the Conjuring Stone (VIP 11 service only). Now...for 12000 diamonds to summon my Li Twins I barely got 33 soulstones and that's 75% of the total diamonds I purchased which is €75 moneywise. I repeat 33 soulstones = €75. So if I want to...hm...participate in this event I still somehow need to find 217 more soulstones by next Saturday.
Speculations (my chance):
If we do the simple math with this rate of luck I have to be able to summon them at least 3 more times (3*30 = 90) together with 3*33 = 99 soulstones and hope get halfway to her 4th summon in order to gather the rest of the soulstones. This 3 times 12000 (36000) plus another 30 soulstones on top which can go between 42000 - 48000 diamonds in TOTAL. Since we already got the promotion on the €99.99 pack now we're left with 2 promotions - €19.99 and €4.99 pack. Let's do the math again - the best scenario (based on my luck) 42000 diamonds would cost me: €19.99 (prom) + €4.99 (prom) + 4*€99.99 + €49.99 + €4.99 = 480 - €480 ($480 for US citizen).
But...let's just say it's me and my bad luck, let's take a look at you. Yep, you - Mr Leprechaun the guy with the best luck ever!
To be Mr Leprechaun on Sunday with the best luck ever:
Even if we say that I strongly exaggerated the chance for a next summon and today you're Mr Leprechaun having a four-leaf clover in your pocket - you summon them 7 times by the 12th attempt (on average) - theoretically speaking this is pretty good chance. First time you summon Li Twins (no soulstones 1st time) and get 10 soulstones by the 12th attempt. The other 6 times you summon Li Twins (6*30 = 180 souls) and get at least 10 soulstones for every 12 chests (6*10 = 60) which will be equal to 180+10+60 = 250 soulstones.
How much Mr Leprechaun would pay you ask? Well let's say he spend $99.99 (promotion) = 16000 diamonds and he got the hero by the 12th run - 4800d which leaves you with 11200 diamonds. You still need to summon the hero at least 6 more times considering the example which is 6*12 = 72 runs in total. Each chest run would be 400d. The total cost for all the chest runs would be 72*400 = 28800. Now we deduct the diamonds we have (11200) and this leaves us with the diamonds we need to buy: 28800-11200 = 17600. So moneywise we still have to get at least 2 packs for 8000d and one for 1600d (8000+8000+1600 = 17600). This would be $99.99 + $99.99 + $19.99 = $220 - just to collect the 250 soulstones and get an avatar...Oh, sorry! Where are my manners? Aghm.. The Special Edition Avatar (this worth more for sure)!
Is this some bad nightmare and I am still not awake, and it's not Sunday or actually this insanity is for real?
Let me know what you think...
