So, did I miss some info about the current big cooldowns for next Conquest Mode (12 days), Alliance War (28) and Ninja event (35 days!!!)?
I’m already very low on pearls and I see members in my alliance worried about this as well.
I know there’s a Blacksmith event about to happen, but I honestly don’t think that’s enough to replace those main sources of pearls for so long!
Well, you could also take place in Pro Leagues and earn crystals and chests that will get you tons of pearls. Oh, and btw, here’s the Announcement that Madlen made, telling the new time of the upcoming events
Hope this helps. For me, personally, I have 35k pearls, and that’s mainly just from Pro Chests, so I think, as of right now, participating in Pro Cups is your best shot for pearls
Thanks. I thought it was just showing wrong numbers in game but that post confims those big cooldowns are actually correct. Which confirms my concern about the lack of pearls.
Also, Alliance Wars, Ninja Event, and now the new Conquest Mode are main source of pearls for a lot of players because they are free to play, unlike Pro-League. So it’s not really a good solution, specially now that we can’t even donate tickets to help friends participate.
And maybe I’ve been wasting too many pearls then, cause I’ve been playing all Pro-Leagues for a while now, always ending at least on Top 50 and I only have ~10k pearls ?, and that disappears really fast cause some perks can take over 1k pearls just to be forged one time.
You should use those pearls to forge young man, not put them in a safe, without interest. Think on it, every time you forge, from that moment on, till the end of the game as long as you use it, may it be a spell, troop, defensive structure or even an item, you profit from that moment on.
Only time you should save pearls, is when you can’t forge anything or when a thing you want to forge is almost out of it’s cool down. for example, when I forge my skull perks, I have 5k+ pearls in reserve to do so. In all other situations, I invest them.
Now I am not the best pearl collector lately, only participate PL every now and then and don’t raid that much during recess.
I’m never sure if it’s wise to forge right away. I suppose, it depends on the amount of pearls that you have availabele. Here’s a little “calculation”. I assume 20k pearls to forge everything without fail.
60k pearls two weeks in advance (no extra pearls in the mean time):
Option 1: Forge right away and do that in the following week again. Odds are around 30%. Hence, the cost is 20k+20k*0.7=34k pearls. You will be short 8k pearls for the second forge.
Option 2: Wait for BS event. Odds are around 40%. Hence, the cost is 20k+20k*0.6=32k pearls. You will be short 4k pearls for the second forge.
So, if BS event is longer than 24h and you only have 60k pearls, it’s better to wait for BS event. When you have lot’s of pearls (>200k), it’s better to forge in advance.
Thanks for this explanation cay. Its obvious now players will have a lack of pearls for 1 month? Flare can you just advance the new Ninja Event to September 1st? Knowing you the new Ninja Event is ready but you make us wait for nothing. Release it please now. Thanks
The lack of pearls is real!!! I’ll have to pause my forging for a while ?
OK, Blacksmith event is actually great to earn pearls, IF you already had lots of uber/pro items to melt, otherwise I feel like it requires too much for a good result when you don’t have the items ready, or already melted all the ones you had.
Even when using lucky gear to find free items on Chamber of Fortune all the time, having to come back to the game every ~15 minutes just to refill the Blacksmith slots so we can take full advantage of the event’s potential is too much.
Plus, not everyone have all Blacksmith slots unlock to get 1 pearl every 4 seconds, and not everyone is currently able to watch video ads for free Blacksmith boost.
@Darkerion, you’re right, we do need more chances for pearls. I’ve come to my senses ( ) and realized that not everyone can participate in the PL. The BS Event does get you a lot of pearls, but imho, you end up losing pearls after that event. We need to have the ninja event come around more often once we get past the upcoming ninja on the 28th of September
