Elders Bane

I’m curious.

For all you Elders Bane players out there, how long did it take you to fully 100% Act 5? Also, did most of you leave your alliance to do it (therefore enabling you to have your top champs more readily available to complete content).

Or did you stay in your alliance?

    Few months after 5.4 dropped I had it done.

    Did not leave alliance or miss alliance events.

    I think that is quite a general question as everyone would have been at different stages of their roster/mcoc progression. You'll find there will have been a good number of more serious players who were keen for the rewards while others like myself who just did a few runs of a map each month as time and attitude permitted. Its long, so requires the right roster and real desire to do it more than anything. Can be easy to get disheartened if your team gets KOd early so just prepare properly and understand its ok to exit and restart, you'll complete it eventually. Good luck :smile:

    Not been in a very pushy alliance, not had top champs locked in, after initial completion it took me a few weeks until I tried to complete. Full exploration took like 2 weeks, 5.1 and 5.4 were easiest
  • Finished Act 5 a few months ago, but became Elder’s Bane last month.

    This is going to sound ridiculous, but it’s true.

    I formed my own alliance earlier this year and got a bunch of awesome people to join who don’t take this game so seriously... this has allowed me to relax and enjoy the game more and spend more time on parts of the game I wasn’t able to before.

    Many of the members were even cool enough to offer to send me energy and revives while I was working on it. Hell, we even finished gold 3, only running two BG’s and without even trying.

    Do I get as many rewards not being in a super dedicated and hard-working alliance?

    No.

    But I have way more fun... and there’s no point in playing this game if it’s causing stress.
  • Was able to explore 80% of it in less than a month. Didn't spend any cash on any items, but went super hard core into the grind.

    I completed Act 5 (just initial clear) on the day it came. But I explored it like 6-7 months after IIRC. because I didn't feel ready at the time.

    some time in between the 6-7 months I just did 2 paths on the Ultron quest, but actually started exploring once I felt ready and with the enough roster to do it, and I am glad I did it because I didn't waste as much items as I expected I was going to do (no units IIRC except on refills and used some few revives I had but nothing big).

    I became uncollected December of 2017. Didnt even touch 5.3 for a couple months. Once I finally buckled down and decided to take a legitimate crack at it, I had act 5 completion done in April of 2018. I then continued to work on it when I could and became elders bane in August of 2018. I did not leave my alliance for it, but instead really focused on content during the breaks in between war seasons and the off days of AQ. My ally completely stopped doing wars in between seasons, so it was a good opportunity for me.

    Imo it was worth waiting, because I was continuing to build up my roster to have the most efficient run possible. I certainly used far less items going for it when I did then I would have going for it at first opportunity, and that made the content far more fun and enjoyable. That's really the point of it all, right? I would say don't feel super rushed to get it done, take it at your own pace!

    Took maybe 2 months to bang it out. Think I did an initial clear then held off for a little bit. Thencwent back and 100% it. Didn’t need to leave alliance. Did a lane or 2 a day. Only down time was during war attack phase. After I would clear monthly EQ that was main focus. Can do map 5 with B team so I had a decent amount of time to get some act 5 in.

    Loving all the insight on Act 5 everyone.

    I was having doubts because I was seeing all my in game friends progressing faster than I am. They used to be lower than me but have surpassed me at this point in time.

    I sometimes struggle to be patient irl as well as things like gaming. It’s tough, but sometimes I understand that I have to do things at my own pace and when it doesn’t become fun anymore, I shouldn’t be doing things the way I do.

    Must’ve been because of my “Life is Short” Mentality sometimes
  • A good stash of energy refill, and your good to go, it would take you around a month to 100% act 5,i did it in a month
  • In a gold 1,5*5

    I hear you, it's natural really to want to be able to complete everything as fast as possible. But that often leads to a lot of frustration when you hit something you cannot yet complete. When you see people passing you, you'll want to catch up. But remember story content will always be there, and you can hit it at anytime!!

    Don't be afraid to go in and practice, I know when I was prepping to start I would go in for a few fights and just test the water. Get more practice in with some of my champs. So that when I was doing a serious run, I was more confident in what I was doing. Patience is key in this game, and I think you will find it a lot more rewarding to go at it prepared then trying to shoot for it if you're not quite ready. But everyone does it differently!

    Good luck whenever you do decide to start going for it!

    I played 11 hours in a row once to almost 100% 5.3. Was deadly but worth it.

    I wouldn’t do that myself. I would probably break my fingers or get carpal tunnel.

    Also don’t have enough time in the day to go 11 hours even if I did want to go that way lol.
  • I am currently in the process of 100% Act 5. Taking my time thought although moving faster than I did when I beat Act 4 to beating the Collector.

    I did the completion of Act 5 around end of November. I beat the collector in August I think or when ever we had the quest with Red Skull because I cheesed Adaptoid and Red Skull with my 3* Ronan. Will always remember that.

    Currently working on Chapter 4 100%. Done about 80% of the chapter. Waiting to rank up my Sabretooth so I can use his synergy to get around Ultrons node. Used Loki first time but wasted to many units. At the moment Act 5 is on the backburner. Broke from the gifting event and need to get monthly event done.
