This thread might be the only reason Furor registers here.
Well, since I am the first person to post the thread on this forum, here's my referral code:
For those who haven't tried it:
It is a collectible card game for your mobile phone. Think a very dummied down version of M:tG. You get cards, you can buy/sell/trade. You get a regular chance at super rare cards that are worth an incredible amount of in-game trade (read: online slot machine). You have the option of pouring money into the game, or you can grind like us (feel free to PM me if you have any questions about efficient grinding). There IS a Fires of Heaven guild there...Fires of Heaven. PM Obsequey in-game if you want in. He is also Ronne on the Board Which Shall Not Be Named.
Otherwise, I guess this thread is to discuss game topics and strategies.
Huzzah, my first thread here!
This thread might be the only reason Furor registers here.
Game is a sickness for sure. There isn't even all that much depth to it, but I'll be damned if I can stop checking it every 20 minutes on my phone.
How simplified down is it, and how long does an average game take?
I end up playing from multiple iOS devices (and a couple Android devices), does it sync across?
There isn't an actual "game" portion to it, it's all based on you regain X points per minute, and it costs Y points to perform an action. Battles with other players are as simple as who has the higher stats.
It's about building up your decks (offensive and defensive ones) with ever more rare and hard to get cards. The higher rarities take a lot of work to get, and are worth quite a bit of real world money. If you want to get anywhere, you'll probably end up running multiple accounts though, and it can get addictive and time-consuming.
hit 97k base w/ my attack deck. highest honor i've earned w/o any moral boost is now 700. still need to gain 3 more levels before i can get 3 attacks per HP.
any idea how many active players we'll have for this HW? maybe i'll start farming Furor's account so he'll join ours
only reason to get def cards is if your a def leader. highest i've ever earned in defending is 210, usually just over 100. and w/ moral boosts and so many w/ attack leader buffs, you have to expect to lose more often than not. once HW starts, the moral boosts won't happen until after the def leader is down, so at least there's that.
Well, def can be pretty nice for farming honor for weekly ranking. I bank like 2k a day off successful defense, so I generally don't even have to spend HP to stay in the 300-700 range.
Man, wth? I created this thread right after this site went up, and it didn't stick.
And yes, I did end up buying the KA. But please don't make me def leader. I only have 176 def right now, and none of my cards are skill 10.
The KA is only skill 2. I also understand, that having a really strong def deck is only useful if you are def leader. But, I chose man realm because of King Arthur, and up to now, I have finally collected all of the Knights of the Round Table. I am retarded like that.
And this stupid HW prize will most likely invoke me into dropping even ridiculous amounts of cash into this game so I can get Lord Arthur as well. Hopefully, he will be a massive boost to man atk.
And thanks for making me feel better Ronne. I thought I was the only addict that checks my phone every 20 minutes or so because of this damn game.
Pulled my first SS Rare out of a cp today, Azi Dahaka $$$.
2 days till HW. do we have a count of actives? I'll post on ingame forum to come here as well. We going to use KIK again to manage attacks? didn't it have a limit of 10 peeps per conversation?
I could use an order invite if possible, I'm just in my personal order full of stam alts atm. I have a good amount of HW to burn, base atk at 78k, but I might be able to bump that up quick if this Azi Dahaka sells fast.
Been playing this on my own for a month and a half or so. I'm in a crappy oder. I'm not hardcore. My deck is around 50k/50k but it's with those crappy slime HRares from halloween (when i started). I'm working on enhancing/evolving a few cards to up that. If FoH would have me, i'd gladly swap orders. Name is bergraven in game.
I'm at 91k/85k right now, 90k/85k with my HW deck (lose a k on the switch to High Werewolf from Trow).
I've only got 200hp banked for this war, and something like 40 personals.
I'll be on Kik...I think we should tag team if we have more than 9 actives and just have one person be in both conversations.
My g/f (Tuzevu) and I are still active. Still a lot lower than most of yall though. I just got my deck to FF - HR's, at 77k/71k atm. I should have my Chiron finished shortly after midnight tonight (alt becomes able to trade, has a ton of feeders). That will bring me up to 80k ATK (replacing a Titan). Not a lot of Holy Powder though.... about 35 HP between Personal/Real. Tuz has Kik installed and is in the channel, so she can relay any info to me.
Finally registered here from FoH with my RoB name. I'm looking for 3 haniels to upgrade my deck if anyone can find them cheap-ish.
Also still trying to unload my Batraz if anyone is interested.
I might want the Batraz after HW is done, will depend on what rewards are and where I can rank
14 fucking battles with 1 proc (stretching over 2 days). I really hope I'm getting my bad luck out.
I was hoping to get enough HP to finish my Haniel before the HW ended as that would be my best shot to placing well I think.I might want the Batraz after HW is done, will depend on what rewards are and where I can rank
HW rewards are crap, save your HP people. We're not tanking anywhere near top 150, and anything worse than that is just HR packs and Olivias. If you have high skill point boosters or wall breakers now is the time to sell!
We have 63hrs to get 42 wins, I think there's a chance we can do it. :-)
I am on here now (and active), but lag has been so bad today that I have barely been able to login. Not sure if anyone else is having these problems, but it is damned near unusable for me.
Any suggestions for those of us just starting out? I've been taking my quest completion/reward powders and buying cards with them and questing/banking personal powders as best as I can but any tips would be appreciated.
Currently playing HotS and Overwatch
I just got my new phone finally! I'm no longer in 2001.
Now, I downloaded this app and just completed the tutorial. Used that Referral code and am currently not sure what to do now, haha. Doing the quests at the moment
Quest and level up, put all of your points in stamina until you have at least 100.
Don't buy rares on the bazaar, only high rares until you have a fully evolved set of 5.
Don't use holy powders except during events, and limit your cure water usage. The HP and CW are how anyone has any shot at placing well for event rewards.
Is there a place to tell value of each card? Do starter cards have any value? On one of the realm choices the cards I get are a Legend and SS Rare, while the other realms are regular rares.

You can check card values by using the Bazaar function. HPs typically serve as the unit of value for cards. What starter cards did you get?
So things I'm looking for right now are:
Kratos 4-7(I think)
i know we aren't putting out serious point to get high level opponents and i've missed a lot of the fights, but i haven't seen a def leader that i couldn't beat yet. shame the rewards are such crap. the 1st HW i really participated in gave 300 gems as a reward.
this time, its like they want to further separate the top vs. middle. the new aurthor card is crazy good and only the very top will get it.
anyone remember the process for making alts on android? i lost it on the foh forums PM if someone knows it.
Meh, I saved up some HP for this one too, but I have barely used it, as these wars have either been complete stomps in either our or the enemy's direction. Except for this one at the moment, which is a rematch between us and these dudes with the retarded long name.
Yep, rewards total garbage, so not spending any resources on this. Here's to hoping christmas event is something decent.
I'm burning a few hp today, only so I can get a second cp pack based on personal rank
Anyone know how we can boost order bonus from 5% to 7%?
I see the to orders have 7 to all, but I can't see what that costs

Upgraded us to 6% across the board, it's 9 million per realm for the final upgrade, so we need more rupies!
Well with the 7% now my Max atk with procs is 116k.
As far as my suggestion on only buying HRs on the bazaar, the rationale was that the only purpose of rares is a temporary stepping stone, that are hard to resell and you don't get much for having them. Its not like having a set of rares will let you place in any events for a profit and you only need 1 good card to beat the quest bosses. A newbies goal for a deck should be for the 500 honor a week to rank in pvp, to rank well enough for better rares won't cut it.
This only really applies for spending HP and CW, if you can make a rare deck spending rupies do it.

Sorry I've been so inactive this past war...I've been down with the flu. Did not feel like playing.
Hello, first time poster LOOOOOOOOONG time lurker.
I have just started the game. The best card I have is a SS Crimson Knight Percival. I upgraded him after I had learned about the 8-14 rules and what not. My question is...
In order to build competitive decks, do you need to upgrade all your cards that way? Or is it worth only upgrading S and SS through that way.
Do cards like Percival only evolve twice? If so would the best way to upgrade him be to level both Percivals to max and then evolve?
Can you go build both ATK decks and DEF decks? Or is it just viable to stick to one thing. I saw above you all were talking about it was only worth it having one person with a Defense deck in the order.
As far as competitive decks go, you Enhance every card you get to its max level (Normal = 20, HN = 30, Rare = 40, etc.), BEFORE evolving it. This includes all cards. For the most part, your standard will be 4-7. Buy 4 of whatever cards you want, Max Enhance all, put two together, Max Enhance the +, put + and another together, max enhance ++, put ++ and last card together, max enhance the FF (Final Form). Final Form cards (4th evolution) go up one level in rarity, thus Rares become High Rares etc, which usually gives you an extra 10 levels worth of enhancement, over the prior evolutions. There are other evolution strats, 6-3, 6-7, 6-9 were all reasonably popular before the Bazaar Era, when people still used Rares evolved to High Rares, as they were much easier to acquire. Nowadays though, it is more of a pain in the ass to enhance 6 cards when you have 50-70 levels worth of enhancement to do.
There is way more that I can expound upon, but its probably better for you to just ask specific questions or even go read Rage of Bahamut Wiki, for general information.
Return on investment for doing anything other than 4-7 is really not worth it for anything other than event special cards if you are aiming for top ranks.
If it helps you rationalize anything realize HPs sell for 25-30 cents each, and a 6-13 is about 4% better than a 4-7

Also, omg skill changes... decks with 2 of the same card just got nerfed hard.
Wow I thought it'd take them a lot longer to patch that in. Fucking fuck, gotta sell these Claymaids FAST.
Looks like prices on 2nd best and 3rd best stuff is going to go up.
So I've been lurking for a while, haven't had much reason to post since the move. Just finished my third day of not being able to get back on my account due to password recovery not working, so yay that.
Been playing this for a while, in a not-so-active order, and sitting at 52k/50k base right now. Since I'm not on Android, only operating a single account.
I'd meant to ask before the HW, but do you guys have room for more active people in the board order?
If we need more room I can always clear an alt out.
That's great. My game name is Bralios. If it's all the same to you, I'd like to wait for the HW rewards just to pick up the personal HPs.
This latest push for rupies has given us a couple of more spots anyway.
Speaking about having room for more members. Do we know how many active members we actually have that are still playing the game? Counting people that have been out due to travel/sickness.
I might have some people we might be able to recruit to fill out our rosters for the next event.
I have my main and 2 alts in the guild. I can drop the alts whenever we need the room.
Naw mate, just couldn't swing the cash for it. Wound up going with the harpist chick instead.
Don't mess with SR/SSR to try and feed to legends Fris. Just buy arch angel queens/treasure/event HR cards for 1hp each and feed them HN to skill them up. Increasing the skill level on your feeder cards make a HUGE difference trying to skill up cards past skill 4-5. A full grip of skill 3 arch angel queens is 50% chance to go from 9 >10 on a legend for example. Not bad odds at all, and the HN feeders to skill the queens up that far is pretty negligible (roughly 20 HN per queen).
yeah, i've got tons of HRs that i've been leveling up. but getting skilled HNs to level them is taking time too. If i find an SR or SSR for under 10 that's already skilled, i think it's worth it time wise. I don't have a ton of alts, nor the time, to farm up 100s of skilled HNs.
got my dragoon to skill 6. if it procs with my skill 10 nightmare (nightmare 1st card still till my dragoon hits 9) and I have 30% moral boost, i hit 195k
Any chance I can get an invite to the board order at this point? Username is Bralios. Been saving up rupies/treasures for donations, if you guys still need that too.
I have some event HRs I'd be willing to sell for 2 cw each if anyone needs.
Edit: Aaaand its a duplicate of the crystal castle event.
It was mentioned during the castle event that you could only level cassiopeas skill with yetis and frost knights, is that still true? :-\

Saved up 10 Legend CPs on my main and turned them all in this morning with the new Mystery Box. On #10 I got the Dark Alice, sold for 500 hp when there were less than 3 pages of them on the Bazaar, finally..... moving on up.
Heh, I was going to sit this event out and just use all the hn/rare cards for skilling up my existing stuff, but I got an Alice from one of my freebie packs so now I'm probably going to try for sub 800 rank again. Can't quite decide yet if I want to or not, because at the midway point again they are likely going to release new cards with different/better event skills so that means investing even more hp in to it...
Probably a safer bet to just sell Alice, but can't decide if I want to sit this whole 2 week thing out or not.
The cards after the mid-point will probably be better also, if you want to compete you'd probably be better selling the Alice and picking up the new one, saving your HP until then.
Yea I pawned her for 440. This is a complete copy of the winter zodiac event so far, so I'll stick with the same strategy I had for that one (do nothing until the 2nd half, then buy FF of the HR event card and farm like crazy). Got the crystal dragon out of that one np, so should be able to do at least the same on this one.
Fuck you guys that pull SR/SSRs. I have yet to get one, jfc.
Starting to make some progress after messing around on my own for awhile (around 60k/46k base at the moment). Fun game for sure, hopefully I can join you folks in the board order.
I'm so sadly addicted to this game lol, not in the board order but mine is active and fun so far. Sitting at 65k/82k (I'm our defense leader) and having fun with this event so far although I'm totally out of CW/HP after buying some HR event cards bleh. Hopefully I can sell a Michael I have to finish out my Thor and Santa Elf. Right now I'm at 14,217 not too bad considering I've used no CW or HP lol.
Would love to play the game more but it runs like absolute shit on my Samsung Nexus and frequently crashes. The "flash movies" or whatever it is they used to animate things seems to cause a build up in my phone's memory with nary a flush to be had, eventually causing it to freeze and then dump the program like a twice used skank. This event is bad too, because of the movies that play when you discover a monster and when you want to turn in for rewards. Anyone else have this issue?
It runs like shit on a lot of android devices. I eventually wound up using a shitty nightly build of CM9 on my Skyrocket because it had no functioning Flash player, which meant all the stupid animations in the game just don't load.
I have an Incredible 4G and I don't have any issues. I did a couple of builds ago but since then, no problems.
i told myself i'd totally skip out on this type of event and try to farm honor while everyone else wasn't, but pulled an Alice o.O. so i bought a 2nd one for ~400, 2 santa elfs for around 80 each, one skill 9. spent about 40 hp farming and i'm about rank 1500. sold my 2 Alices last night for ~370 and they're down to 330 this morning, seems i picked a good time to get out and still make use of the card.
i was gonna keep them throughout but forgot i'll be doing family stuff a lot over the next few days. hopefully right when i'm done visiting famliy they'll release the next event card and I can get 2 Wraith Kings. the card sucks but I have hope they'll flip it back to just Demons instead of this dumb realm/realm kick they're on.
at least the event has JUMP, hope to farm a few levels out of this as well.
I might get in if/when they release the 2nd cardpack/wave of cards that have the better event skill. If they do I'll probably drop some HP and go for sub 1000, but if not then I'm just sitting the whole thing out. Got burned too bad by the crystal event when they released dragon slayers/slepnir and made the cards I already had completely worthless.
So I'm curious. How is it you guys are getting these event cards? I managed to get Santa's Elf out of the free card pack present, but otherwise I've been having shit luck getting anything that is above rare.
Is it just bad luck, or do you guys tend to buy card packs?
i only have 6 alts, and they haven't gotten me anything over HR. i've gotten 2-3 SRs and 1 SSR, the Alice, from card packs I've purchased. I got another SSR from gems, but it feels like it's been 6 months since I traded the 800 gems and i'm still not that close to antoher one.
i feel sorry for people starting now. Rs and HRs have almost no value, while SRs and above haven't changed much.
and event related news, 2nd card pack for this even came out today w/o any new event card(s). now to decide if I buy an Alice again and try the final week or not.
I've opened some 750+ lcps at this point (mostly through leveling alts and doing the login campaigns. 2 SR in all of those, and one was a special pack from crystals.
I just bought 4 santa's elves with HPs. For my deck it's a decent attack card at 17k+ attk with a skill I need and I'm in the process of skilling it up now. I haven't gotten any good cards since the event started from packs.
So 16-31 Ancient Elf, 19.2k atk... this game
So I've got another question for people doing this event. Has anyone ever gotten anything good from bells? Or even in the last event for crystals. It's like 100 attack points per red bell, and I'm having a hard time seeing a point to using HP to do that.
I've been waiting for this day for a while, time to sell off my 5 FF Yukis for double what I paid for them <.<
I'm not even sure I'll bother with the 5th form on my Lancelot. Spend ~150hp to gain like 1000 def and have to redo 10 skill levels on an SSR? No thanks.
I bought another Tiamat for 120, got me another 1k attack. Dunno if its worth it.
I just got a Guinevere from turning in red bells. Got one HR pack last event too.
As far as return on investment its horrible unless you are also placing decent in the event.
Anyone have a guess as to the value of a Wight King? Slightly less than a Jormungand?
The Lord Arthur card is currently the strongest in the game. 37 pwr required and the only card with massive boost to a single realm's attack. They are going for 3k hp for just a single card on the bazaar (not fully evolved). That said 300k is frightening, although technically there are massive boost to one realm defense cards in the game (qilin), so its possible to match that defensively in theory.
i've gotten 199k w/ 30% moral boost. but I haven't seem to have gotten a moral boost in a few days.
Ronne, my RL buddy just guild requested- drcramer if you don't mind accepting him into the guild.
Meant to add that he's usually active for events/wars.
Ah tell him to apply again, i denied him before i saw this.
And no, there is no defense that stops lord arthur. Hell, there is no defense that stops enkidu/batraz/azi dahaka currently.
I'm at ~200k currently if all 3 boosts fire and don't lose very often fighting in the top 100 anymore.
At skill 10 Lord Arthur's boost becomes unworldly or whatever and just shits all over everything.
New HW rules are strange, on the upside one def leader no longer decides the battle as their protection is only for 6min of every 11, for each one.
Hitting the 'charge' button every 20 min will be important.
Full-force attacks will be a way to dump HP for points very fast.
None of it matters until we see reward rankings. If it's like last time and it requires sub300 to get anything but shit then it's all moot =\
I think that will remain the same, but they changed the way that silver coins work, apparently now they function like legend cp's or something.
Hey, I was wondering if it would be cool if I request a g invite. My deck is still very much a work in progress, but I'm active all the time. Username darthmaul852.
Did you already sell off all the Asparas? If not, throw 2 of them to my friend Jsleepy to help him flesh out his def deck a bit.
Also, with the rules in place for this HW, are we going to redo any of the order positions?
I still have all the Apsara.
We're going to need some new def leaders though with the new rules in place, as you can't just have one to hide behind anymore. Any volunteers?
I could switch over to Def leader, but the problem is my def deck requires 145 pwr, and I have 190 def. So, I won't last very long if I get hammered.
my def is only 156, my def deck requires 135.
Whats the difference between this game and Blood Brothers? I didn't really give RoB a chance because I felt like I couldn't get a lot done in the time they gave me but I could get a ton done in Blood Brothers.
So... Any plans for this Holy War? I know rewards info isn't out yet, but any idea's about the new positions? Support leader, and chains?
New ui is pretty snazzy. Chains are fairly easy to understand. We will essentially always have a 10% atk boost, and variable bonus holy war points up to a max of 50% if we keep the chain going. I guess we need to assign more def/atk/sup leaders to use all the new abilities. Charge is nice, can used it a few times per holy war, gives u about one whole attack back. The default ability yell is nothing to write home about, perhaps it gets much better as you level it. Oh well, one victory in the books for us.
