Maybe your right and I don’t mind dropping some gems/pearls if I have too. It’s just I have to set my own personal achiements in the game becuase I can’t really compete with the others (High level alliances, pay walls, platform imbalances)
But I have about 5 left SShollow III and crypt dead IV, the 1K gems and a couple others. My goal is to do them all scroll free. It’s more fun than upgrading the castle gaurd anyway.
