A Daredevil weekend

Posted in Marvel Heroes by Armagon on March 20, 2016

Apparently Gazillion thought it would be a good idea to have a Daredevil event this weekend where you’d get +200% XP and another +50% for playing Daredevil or Punisher.

Apparently I thought that it might be a good idea to take advantage of that… So now I have a Red Prestige Daredevil (white -> green on Saturday, green -> blue -> purple -> orange -> red on Sunday) and then continued to nix my poor judgement of not doing story mode for a few chars and thus lacking power points. So Thing went to green and Captain Marvel to blue. My record time (with Daredevil and a ton of buffs – roughly +563% displayed + probably 150% server buff) for a full 1-60 run is 27 minutes, 32 seconds, but mostly it took around 30 minutes. Thing was slower with 40 minutes and with 200% less XP Captain Marvel needed around 50 minutes each for both runs. To end the day on a less grindy note I finally did Chapter 10 for the first time – on Hawkeye.

And then I also lucked out on Splinters again and thus have Cyclops. So that’s 36 characters, of which 35 are max level and 8 Level 60 Team-Ups, plusĀ 20 non-Cosmic prestige runs and 1 Cosmic prestige run in 395 days since I started playing. Apparently that puts me into the top 10 “number of combined character levels” leaderboard already, although it’s only 3400 – whereas the current #1-#3 have 23520, which maybe means they have cosmic prestiged every single hero? I can’t seem to make up the math.

Maybe time for another most-wanted list:

  • Juggernaut
  • She-Hulk
  • Kitty Pryde
  • Ant-Man
  • Venom

and the rest is not so interesting right now I guess.

Back to Marvel Heroes

Time to dig out Marvel Heroes again. Lucked out on getting Green Goblin via 175 Splinters and levelled him to 60. Was pretty fun as well. That makes 35 level 60 heroes now.

Second random was a dupe, so Black Panther got an Ultimate Rank, oh well.

Apparently the Team-Up window is bugged at the moment and you get a random level displayed. Not sure if it’s doing any harm or if it’s just a display bug. Glad I’m not doing hard content atm though šŸ˜›

I was thinking about getting the Advance Pack but when I wanted to make the final decision, it was pulled from the shop already. Ah well, 60 bucks saved I guess. But I bought 2450 G for 20$.

I really love the Crafting change, as there’s only one level for each of the four elements. Then again I’m not sure it’s pretty hard to get enough of them now if you’re rerolling costume affixes (+crit damage all the way).

 

Gaming-free February

Posted in About this blog by Armagon on March 4, 2016

Back from a lengthy and much-needed vacation and it’s already March. The only gaming relating thing I did in the last 3 weeks was 10 minutes of a match-three on Android and approximately 5 more minutes of some puzzle game. I didn’t miss anything, but have already started my daily login to Marvel Heroes and Guild Wars 2 for the login bonuses. Haven’t played anything since returning though, but started reading my gaming-related RSS feeds on the subway again already.

I also didn’t miss gaming. At all. Before I left I had started playing The Witcher, might continue there. And then there’s still Mass Effect 3.
