5* Featured Arena - what does it take to get the champ?

I saw someone mention in a thread recently that in order to get the 5* featured champ from arenas, the top grinders typically go through their 6* roster, and then just refresh 3 of them over and over and over using units.

So if my math is correct, and if a top tier 5* featured champ goes for 60M, and the average 6* champ brings in, what, 70k points... that's ~850 fights x 20 units to refresh each... that's 17k units.

Do the top arena grinders really spend 17k units to get champs? am I missing something?

    17k units is the easy method. That method is most relaxing … and very expensive.

    Otherwise, at 2 mill rating, to even grind to 65 mill + means grinding for 64-66 hours out of 72 hours.

    After the grind...you feel physically sick... zombie-like … its not a good feeling.

    P.S. Spending 17k units though is still cheaper than spending it on the crystals.

    So grinding every 6*, 5* and 4* basically over ~4-5k?

    what do you mean over 4-5k? 4-5k units?

    4-5k champ score

    6 ★ R1 = 65K
    5 ★ R3+ = 30K
    4 ★ R5 = 11k

    Sorry - I meant the prestige score. ie. you'll get a deathmatch if you use too low a champ.

    People going for a champ hit every round they physically can, like Brian grant can hit around 50 million before spending units, and they refresh arena boosted 5 stars that are cheaper to refresh and give more points per unit used

    Last year I tried for IMIW 4* when he came in for the first time... Grinded crazy to get to 13 mil and missed him in short margin... That's when I decided... No more going for a champ when they are announced

    I grinded 81.3mil for guilly 2099 and did not use this method. I could put up about 50mil in 3 days without units. I used about 7k units and 5* boosts to get the rest of the points. Even without the 5* boosts, 5* give more points per unit but you do twice the fights compared to 6*. Unless you are fine with spending a lot of units, you need a deep roster: 15+ 6* and 100+ 5* and some 4* to run with the R1 5* to have a comfortable grind to get the 5*. I overshot a bit but I knew I would get her with my score.

    Why yould you do arena just buy cav crystals you have pretty much 100% chance to get the champ in 9k units as a 5*. I know I always have. Plus it saves you time.

    All in all I think we can all agree....no video game is worth that amount of time or money invested, but if it makes you happy or you have crazy disposable income go for it!

    Not even remotely true. There have been many times I've dumped far more units than that and never got them

    As a cav crystal you have a 1% chance to get him per crystal, at 30 crystals you are at no where near 100% chance to get him. I spent 1200 bucks on guilly 2099 before I got her as a 5* or better, even that was not a 100% chance, I got lucky.

    @Caino1023 i had 48 R1 5*, the others are about evenly spread out from R5 to R3. I have 108 total 5*.

    As already been said the feature arena is for vet type players in the main.

    Unless u have 100+ 5* and minimum 15-20 6* then it is going to cost huge amounts. I don’t have time but run 15m in arena just using my 6* and r5/r4 5* in little over 2 days.

    But doing 65m+ plus means running all 110 5* champs 3 times a day and the boosting and refreshing

    ya, you either have to pay for a deep roster in advance, or pay with units to refresh...

    Took me 66 hours to grind to 71 mill. Spent about 300 units... deep roster is definitely required ...

    54 6*
    144 5* r3 +
    10 r5 4*...

    My 6* roster is pretty sad though. Almost all unawakened ...

    Awakened ones are like ebony maw and diablo lololol
