    Do UC EQ, dup 5*, AW (T3 and above), Feature 5* arena, buy the offers that includes 6* shards

    @zarcor i only have 11 five star champs at the moment, with the down time after fights would i be able to grind for at least the first 6* shard milestone.. or will i not even come close ?

    ALSO I can 100% complete master quests but certain buffs are difficult. should i rank 5 some 5 stars before even considering going for a 6*

    @LeoGnarleyardo money

    Without that, it is a slowwww grind to get them, takes beating some of the best content in the game, like the uncollected monthly quests or the mid monthly quests. Or dupe a 5*

    Master isn't a cakewalk and you only have 11 5 star champs...6 stars aren't meant for your roster. You're not at the stage (IMO) where a 6 star should be obtainable.

    Definitely don't need 5 star champs at rank 5 before you get your first 6 star, but you should at least be able to clear uncollected (even if it means you have to throw some items at it). Even then, it's going to be months (I think 4) of having to 100% explore uncollected (if you don't get 6* shards from arena).

    @LeoGnarleyardo you can but i don't recommend it (too much time and units)

    You can complete story mode, ACT 5 gives you (if i remember correctly) enough for a 6*

    For your roster don´t worry about them now, focus in 5*

    If you have time for arena, getting top 10% which is probably 12.5-13m nowadays 2x a week will get you 4K 5* shards and 400 6* weekly. For your roster now the 5* shards will help expand your team and over a month that gives about the same amount of 6* shards as UC difficulty (16k 5* shards too).

    If 12.5-13m is too much 2x a week - 6.5-7m should get you half the rewards

    It is more correct to say that trying for them directly is probably too far of a single leap forward. You should be trying to become uncollected first, then trying to build up to completing uncollected on the easiest path, then trying to be able to fully complete uncollected, then think about building up your 6* roster. Because one of the two best ways to get 6* champions are buried within those goals. Fully completing uncollected gets you 1/4 of a 6* champ per month. Besides that, slowly accumulating 5* champs and using them to grind in the 5* featured arena is the other best way, because you directly get shards but more importantly you begin duping 5* champs by acquiring 5* shards.

    Don’t worry, you’ll have 4 or 5 useless six stars sitting on the bench before you know it. 😉

    true story: my second account has a 6 star champ but was not uncollected before getting it. How's that even possible you ask?
    1) completed the symbiote event, epic level, collect 2500 6* shards.
    2) cyber Monday unit deal: 1 odin = 2500 6* shards, limit 3. purchase 3.

    result: 10k 6* shards. pull karnak.
    He's fine tho, since the account is only lvl 53 and the 3 top champs are 5/50 blade/korg/void with a 3/45 domino waiting for gold to go 4/55.

    that's the quickest i can think of getting those shards, clearly they're going to let you buy them (chunks of shards) going forward.

    It's definitely a slow process. I only have 1350, and I'm not exactly a low teir player. If you can't explore or complete the entire uncollected eq, at least explore the first act and do one run of the 2nd. Thats whative been trying to do at a minimum. Sometimes it works, sometime it doesn't. I hope my first 6* is real good because it'll take less time for my 2nd one if so.
