  • It was stated Epic would be much much more difficult than Uncollected and it will tax our Item and Unit stash. So why are the rewards the same as Uncollected. Don't skip this question over please

    It was not. If you read carefully, it says that epic is the same thing as uncollected.

    How will the Klyntar Catalysts be spread in rewards?
    Like we get 5 for completion and 10 for exploration?

    Symbiote difficulty rewards are trash for the suggested difficulty, going to be so much harder and I just don't see the point if you need to waste resources to complete it.
  • LiamS1990LiamS1990 Posts: 87
    They should be at least double the uk if difficulty or at least throw in some 6* shards and t5 basic shards

    And will you please answer the question about energy cost for this difficulty? If it's just like 2 chapters then it's not big deal. If it's a full 6 maps like Epic that's a huge problem.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but does it not state For completing and mastering ALL of the Symbiote Quests, you earn:
    1x 5-Star Featured Hero Crystal
    2500x 5-Star Shards
    18000x T2 Alpha Catalyst Fragment
    10x 5-Star Sig Stone Crystal
    1x Tier 4 Class Catalyst Crystal
    1x Monstrous Master Title

    So this surely means we need to 100% complete beginner-epic to gain these rewards and not that symbiote is a new difficulty.

    Scratch that just reread the poorly described post!!
  • It wasn't poorly described. It says right there that it is a new difficulty.

    The situation Kabam has put themselves in is that they have practically ‘given’ everyone a champ which is able to clear every difficulty regardless of your roster. The symbioid is 30% stronger than a 6* rank 2, so it basically beats every other champ, especially with enhancements. Interestingly, they have made it such that you need 1 more Klyntar catalyst to reach rank 5, than what is given for exploring beginner to master.

    This means that a factor for distinguishing mid or late game players comes in where the catalysts are given. If they are given throughout the event quest, clearing one quest on epic difficulty might be manageable for most, leading to MOST mid tier players being able to reach rank 5 on the symbioid. I suspect this is the case, which is why they have tuned down the rewards for the symbioid difficulty.

    Imagine if someone with just 4/40s can get the rank 5 symbioid and hence clear symbiote difficulty, there becomes a problem with controlling progression. Giving too many late game rewards (people asking for 6* shards and t5bc) means that mid tier players have access to tons of late game rewards, which becomes weird when a mid tier player is able to get a 6* that quickly.

    I appreciate that Kabam has already made epic difficulty available for all players, so that mid tier players can have some end game rewards, but perhaps further increasing rewards in symbiote difficulty will tip the scales too much.

    Lately, Kabam seems to be giving more skill based challenges like the danger room, allowing mid tier players to catch up with end game players, and the symbiote difficulty seems like another of such an event. Thankfully, the occult labs will still allow end game players to progress faster with better rewards, so overall the rewards cater to both mid and end game players.

    Simbiote difficulty must offer at least 15000 t5b
    Are you serious?

    I don't know why, but as a mid-tier player, this was beautiful to read. lol

    Why the hell you offer us harder content with lesd rewards?

    Who cares for 15k feat crystal or 2500 5 star shards at all?

    5000 6* shards
    15000 t5b
    24000 t2a
    15000 5* shards
    20 5 sig stones
    10 6 sig stones

    This scales logicaly and what you offet ist a complete nonsense to me

    @Kabam Miike Will the Symbiote difficulty be the same quest with the same number of paths required for exploration, just harder nodes/stronger opponents?

    This dofficulty is not for endgamers...it is for mid tier who want to catch up

    in summary
    to bring the Symbioid to 5-rank you have "only" to fully explore epic level

    Firstly, the Master Key has been destroyed. Yes, you read that right, the Master Key has been destroyed, and the Master Difficulty has been unlocked for the foreseeable future.

    Shouldnt that mean Master is locked forever lol?

    Can a maxed Symbiote be used in a legends run?

    That's actually a really good question... It would put many more players on the same playing field if they can be used for legends run.

    If there’s a legends run, then yes he could be used. Why not?

    Do we have a gold cost for Symbiotes ranking?

    From what I can see l, only rank ups needed, no lvlup
  • CELEZECELEZE Posts: 36
