How many units is worth using on energy refills for act 5 100%

I have around 2000 units and don’t want to burn through them all to 100% act 5 but at the same time don’t want to just wait for energy all the time. What is a good amount of energy refills to buy to make it worth it. Have already explored chap 4.

    This can`t really be answered. It also depends on your skill. After Masteries I think refills are one of the best ways to spend your units. But if you buy refills to the extant that you have no backup units for a revive/potion when you need it, it is not worth it.
    Buy the refills as you go, and always try to keep a couple of units in reserve for when you are almost finished, or mess up at a boss or something.
    If you feel like playing some more, and you still have buffs up buy a refill. Do not buy them in advance.

    imagine buying 20 refills, the game starts acting weird and you have connetion issues. Next thing you know. You are back here at the forum asking Kabam to compensate you because your refills are expiring. It you think it is their fault.

    Zero, just be patient and let energy come back naturally. Units should only be spent on masteries, 4th of July, and cyber weekend. Sometimes clearing content, but if you farm potions and revives, you shouldn't need units on content either.

    Why not? Isn't the whole point of this game to improve as fast as possible? Isn't that why you rank up champs? Why slow play getting through/exploring content when you can use some units to get your account to progress even faster? Refills are the second best thing to spend units on behind masteries imo.

    Kind of depends for me on if I want to use energy refills. Like if I just did a really tough path I dont want to go in again for a bit so I just wait for the energy to come back on itself. But when I'm in the grove and I'm feeling good I feel the desire to get it all done in one sitting so at that time I'll spend units on buying energy refills.

    I used a ton. Especially on 5.4.5 and 5.4.6 bc I was so close to the rewards.
    In 5.2.6 as well as I did all the paths in one day to try save some boosts.

    We get a decent amount of refills as it is. I have a lot of units because I don't spend units on things like energy. If you are going to spend money on the game, it doesn't really matter. If you aren't, I would say units are better spent on content like the Abyss, on Cyber Weekend, or even Cav crystals.

    Depends on your play style but sometimes I like spending an hour or so just smashing something out, patience be damned.
    Stop when your sick of it.

    There's a big difference between someone who's doing Abyss and someone exploring act 5

    I'm the same way, just I usually have enough refills when I want to do that. And I will buy energy from time to time but I don't generally. Units add up much faster if you don't buy things like energy.

    Hmmm. Someone disagrees. I guess units must add up faster if you do buy energy? How does that work lol
