Summoners, due to a technical issue, this week's series of Alliance Quests will be cancelled at 4pm PT. There will not be any Rewards for this series. The next series of Alliance Quests will start on April 18 at 12pm PT. We will be assessing the impact on Alliances and compensating accordingly, as well as returning Alliance Tickets.

Let's talk about T3CC

With all of the changes that have come into the Contest over the past year and a half or so, I think it's time to have a good hard look at Tier 3 Class Catalysts and their availability.

When I first started playing, Tier 3 Catalysts were only used to take 4* champions to ranks 3 and 4 - requiring a total of 3 of that class. Because of this - and the fact that 4* champions were still pretty hard to come by (crystal luck or grinding your life away in the arena) - Tier 3 Class Catalysts were never insanely scarce.

Fast forward to today, however, and there is an entirely new story to tell. 5* champions require those same Tier 3 Class Catalysts to go from Rank 1 to Rank 2, but 5* champions are a lot easier to get. Between the arena rank rewards, Event Quests, and Alliance War, your average Uncollected player can open at least 1 5* a month, but you're probably looking at 2+ 5* champions each month.

The Tier 3 Class Catalyst quests still only give you an abysmal amount of T3 class shards. And to make matters worse, there's a new offer after you 100% that quest that will allow you to purchase two T3 Class Catalysts of a class of your choice for 400 units - the offer used to be for a class catalyst of the class of the day for 175 units - so now you've made it more expensive for players to obtain them!

The daily quests should offer at least 1 full class catalyst a day. Shoot, you could even include a full Tier 3 Class Catalyst as a reward for the Tier 4 quest as well!

Lastly, I think it should be possible for us to purchase T3 Class Catalysts (not crystals!) from the Glory store. Even if it was limited to two per week, this would be an improvement.


To discuss some counterpoints:

Yes, through solo events you are awarded a number of Tier 3 Class Catalyst Fragment Crystals, and through those rank rewards you can get Tier 3 Class Catalyst Crystals. This is all well and good but this still comes down to luck of the draw. If I need Skill T3 but i have an abundance of Science or Tech T3 and nobody to use them on, I'm not going to open any of the crystals mentioned above because I could end up with those T3 in overflow, and they could expire. With it being so hard to get class specific T3s, I wouldn't want to risk it.

There is also the Class Specialist Alliance Event, but even that doesn't guarantee that the class you need will be the class event that starts.

My final suggestion is that it might be time to implement some sort of T3 trading system, wherein we can exchange T3 Class Catalysts at a rate of 1:1. But this should be a limited system, where we can only do a few trades a week, or put it behind a paywall of like 25 units per catalyst.

    Yes this NEEDS to happen. Its absolute BS that even playing the t3 event up to 3 times on the hard path still doesn't give you a fully formed t3cc is absurd (the worst part is it only will give very small amounts of shards) . Then the deal of 400 units just for 2? Worst deal in the entire game. C'mom kabam atleast guarantee 1 fully formed catalyst (t3cc or any tiered catalyst that your going for) for 100% exploration of that class event (except for the t4). Please, it's really not that much to ask for. These events are only once a week... It'd be different if all classes were available every day then the mere shards could suffice.
