**WE ARE NO LONGER Temporarily Reverting Tier 1 War Ban System**

After further discussion, the game team has made the decision not make adjustements to the ban system.
The previously proposed fix would have resolved the issue for Summoners who are on the cusp of T1/T2 play, and negatively impacted Alliances more securely in T1. Instead, we recommend that cusp Alliances switch to Manual Placement to your members to place the allotted 5 Ban Champions limit there.

Apologies for the back and forth, and for any confusion.

Rip’s Valiant Speedrun

RiptideRiptide Posts: 3,111 ★★★★★
After following along with @Cantona59 and their valiant speedrun, I decided to attempt my own run since I’ve got some time on my hands for the next few weeks.

I don’t have a time goal because I’ve never done this kind of thing before, we’ll see how I stack up to @Cantona59 :)

    Thank you! It’s always neat to get to use some champs that I don’t usually

    Fr. I finished wrapping up a paragon speedrun a couple weeks ago and early on it was very fun using & learning different champs. I got a lucky 5* apoc day 1 who I used for a while and never played on the main. Unfortunately he was one of my few unique pills as later on in the run I managed to pull the exact champs I have ranked on my main lmao.

    Also for your energy crisis, early game spending units is really the only way. Once you beat 6.1 though, pick up the chapter completion bundle. Iirc it’s like 900ish units and has 20 refills plus a hell of a lot of revives and potions. All of the 6.1-7.4 chapter completion bundles have some insane value, with more refills then you’ll ever need. So I’d plan on picking those up when you get there, but until 6.1 you basically just have to buy refills.

    Day One Update

    Title: PROVEN





    So far I have explored up to Act 3.2.3.

    4* Fury from the beginning objectives is going to come in clutch throughout act 4. None of my other 4*s look too promising, but it shouldn’t be too many days before I move on to 5 and 6*s I hope.

    My 3* Kushala has been a blast, I don’t have her on my main, but she’s dope!

    At this point I’m out of energy refills… debating buying some with units. Might run some incursions in the meantime.

    Any tips for my energy crisis?

    Buy the refills, you earn 90% of the units back from exploring act 3 and pushing into act 5/6 where it’s 25-35 units per quest completion

    Day Two Update

    Title: CONQUEROR




    Today I finished exploring act 3, and completed act 4. 4* Fury still MVP :)

    I got my first 4 5*s, 1 from shards, 1 from act 4 completion, and 2 from the SQ cavs. Was really hoping for a 6* lol. Super excited about venompool, he’s one of my favorite champs!

    I also did all 4 paths in the SQ, the cavs were dope with 5*s, plus the 4* awakening ge for Fury will come in handy later!

    The plan is to aim for act 5 completion tomorrow!

    Looking good so far! FYI you’re gonna really love that overseer pull, you just got yourself a 6.2.2 sinister counter, arguably the most niche fight in act 6. Dupe would be helpful to ramp him faster but you can absolutely do it unawakened too. That’s a big weight off your shoulders. Of course you might get a better sinister counter by the time you get there, but you at least have the fight covered.

    Great pace man! While you're probably not going to beat @Cantona59 at this rate, you'll still probably fall within the 1-2 month mark. Looking forward to more updates!

    Day Three Update

    Title: UNCOLLECTED




    I made it through all of act 5 today! 4* Fury still carrying the team, but some of my 5*s are starting to com win handy now. Spent maybe 10 revives, mostly in 5.4. I don’t have a good mephisto counter ranked, so he was rough. Venompool nearly soloed the final ultron boss, he’s amazing!

    Overseer has been a blast to learn, I kinda wanna rank him on my main now lol

    My biggest problem now is gold. I ran through 20 zones of incursions to hit all the milestones, but I’m still too low to rank any more. Not sure how 6.1 will go with a 4* and a 5* R3.

    (Side note: The updated rewards from earlier acts are great with crystals and rank up gems, but I have no gold to use them)

    Solid progress man. You’re getting some sneakily nice pulls. 5* wagneto is going to be really nice for his prefights in act 6, and because he’s a 5* you can still bring him in act 8. I wish I had a great solution for your gold problem. I was able to take advantage of the poolie event for gold and iso but that’s no longer an option. Act 6 also doesn’t give much gold until you beat the whole thing. My only idea is to do some side quest for mysterium to buy the gold bundle. At least to maybe give enough for the next 2 days until incursions resets.

    Also I’m mad I didn’t remember this yesterday, but you can buy the 10 nightcrawler runestones with mysterium from the trader’s outpost, and pickup a free 5* nightcrawler. Or you could hold the runestones for 150 7* shards each later, but who knows when that deal will be made available, I personally wouldn’t go that route.

    Grabbed Wags from the Act 5 nexus, was super excited

    Wow that wags pull is insane! He solves one of the minor problems of the run which is debating buying stupefy for longer stuns
    I feel you on the gold issue too, only other thing I can recommend is grabbing it from the side quest store, or even selling some catalysts
