I wouldn’t work that way… is natural to get 2 same uniques, or 6 same uniques. Eventually you will get all uniques, I recenlty got one I didn’t have, and I think there are 2 left… it’s been a long time. No complaints. What matters is to find a usage for them, if they can solve this to a good extent, then everything else is as intended… to be a bit difficult to get uniques (or a specific one). If you change the duplicate effect, then it’s unfair for anyone playing the game before that change in my opinion.
Though I wont be against it, it will be unfair. The real challenge is either to find a better way to exchange them, or simply find a usage of them. I tend to like the latter, because we will keep getting uniques, for ever. As long as you play the game. So if you fix the unique, what happens when you have all of them? You start for a new set of uniques, without the possibility of getting one 3 times or it triggers something that makes it possible to get anything from then on? There is no reason for me to fix something else, but to gain something out of those olds ones, it is something nice and progressive for the game. We have mentioned a number of ways, though I would like to list them here, I think CM has them in mind. I will add two more insights though:
- I don’t use the cursed option anymore. I used it a long time ago (3-4 times actually). I don’t badly need anything, although I would love a new shield or CD uniques. The cost is expensive, and the 5* titan can be used to upgrade an existing (like i said I have all but 2). So it doesn’t make sense.
- I don’t even upgrade them anymore… again there is no point, I build my heroes around other things, I have argued that in many cases, they aren’t so good, compared to what you can achieve with a refining… plus there is a chance to get the same unique, better on your current level. If you badly need to upgrade, sure… if not, what’s the point ? I wanted to upgrade my two hercules uniques… both aquired before 131, probably way before. I recently got a new fb unique… and the other one, well it serves the purpose, though if I upgrade it, we might be talking 50% more damage and 50% more demo… still, not a war hero, I stopped using him much. So no need. Helen, I was planning to upgrade her unique, to get the CD up, I got a new one, the same week I was thinking about it… if you are patient, you always benefit. If it’s cruicial, (daily use, AP - no easy/fast alternative), by all means upgrade a unique. Again, how often? It needs some planning, like we said in the refining discussion.
- 5 titans are pretty expensive. Let’s face it, the old system, allowed you to use strong items, and keep a certain amount of power in them, making them re-usable for a further purpose. Now, you just have a star system around, which means you can’t use what you just made in the same sense. It’s the same if I super forge, or simple forge… Building a titan with 5* titans greatly increased the value before, therefore you made it stronger… now it’s just a 5* titan which will give you 2% more. I loved it when I replaced a 5* with an existing 1* to 2* forge: and it was stronger… now the process is painful. To conclude, I am not saying that the old system was better, but it does make the new system much more dependable on titans… which is the reason I personally have stopped using 5* dismantles for the most part, especially not before I reach 150 level. And even at that point, it’s still debatable if you are able to do that, for so many items/heroes.
Therefore, making use of uniques will solve a lot of problems. It wont unbalance the game. Because a unique is so rare, it wont change much if you use it once in a while. I’ve discussed with some guys here, about making titans more frequent. Like a full chest with 5 or 10 titans, maybe at the end of the war (last chest), maybe by purchasing an offer or even on Odysseys. I think that would be bad, it will ruin the balance. But I think we all agree, that titans need a small boost… this might just be it… it’s so rare, it changes nothing, but the usage of one such item, can have a good benefit with minimum cost… instead of making 5* titans, or re-cursing or upgrading… by using the luck we got a unique, you already have the balance factor. What I choose to use it for, can be part of a strategy or tactic.
