Are basic 5* Crystals essentially irrelevant now?

Just a thought I had. Now that you can target champs, or even just target particular ISO if you want with the Dual Class Crystals, why would you ever buy a 5* Basic Crystal? Why not increase the price a little and make it a nexus instead of a basic?

    I mean not really. If you have completed a large piece of content like 100% LOL or Act 5/6 then maybe you don’t want to go for just one class, you want to go all in and see what you get.

    Edit : Sorry this double commented no idea why. Also if you are suggesting to get rid of them I say NO. They have been a staple of the game for years and I intend to keep them!

    They’re not irrelevant, the class ones can help target a certain champ but if there’s a range of champs you’re after or you’re not too bothered who you get, the basic Crystal is the way to go. Basics have just as much chance to pull a good champ as class ones so it’s not like they’re useless

    I mean, I guess. But realistically everyone has someone in mind who they’d like to go for. Or at the very least a 6* they want to rank up and could use a certain class ISO to help them do so.

    I personally still open basics. I don’t like the idea of never being able to get certain champs if I’m always targeting the same dual crystal. Occasionally I’ll go for the dual one but mostly, I’ll be popping basics.

    I’m not saying get rid of them, but in my mind it would be to anyone’s advantage to go for a dual class over a basic. I just don’t think the value lines up properly, so that’s why I would think a change to nexus or maybe a discount of 1000 shards to the basic at the least.
  • Not really, like others have said, the class ones have the same chance of getting a good or bad champ as the basic, just a more focused and limited pool though

    For now I think, but the dual crystal will be irrelevant in the future because the class will grow more with time so it will get harder to target the specific champion in the future.

    I wouldn’t say irrelevant but definitely less relevant as before for sure.

    To me the crystals that’s always been irrelevant are the features. I just never seen the value of them, ive opened maybe 5 total and been 1/5. Which if you think about it, is a good outcome but just never been a gambler myself in that aspect.

    The 5 star crystal as someone said if good for folks who need a slew of champs and don’t mind if they pull one from any class.

    The problem with the dual crystal is there in the name, it’s a dual crystal. It has 2 sets of classes, so unless you’re super super lucky, the chances you get a champ from a specific class you want are still low; just not as low as a regular 5 star.

    Don’t get me wrong, the dual is still a GREAT addition to the game. Especially if you open in bunches, chances are less slim to get what you need.

    Because then that's devaluing the completion reward of Act 6. I don't think we'll get shard-purchasable Nexus crystals until further down the line when Nexus crystals become more common.

    I don’t see any reason to go basic over dual, there’s always going to be a certain class that’s better for you, wether it’s a certain champ you need or if you’ve got more resources for that class and need someone to rank

    Basic crystals will be for those that can't decide what they want immediately or otherwise already have all the champs they need immediately and can't decide what they want next.

    Yeah I don’t think I’ll bother with basics anymore. At the very least I can target the ISO I need, but either way I imagine it’ll take a long time for me to pull the Aegon I’m hunting for so.

    Said basics were gonna be irrelevant ever since dual crystals were announced and now i still stand by it

    I got the exact champ I needed from the dual crystals (Claire), at first I was going to continue hunting for aegon, Nick and quake from the class crystals, but instead I decided to turn to basics until I can get the 5*s I have up (stealthy, Claire, hulkbuster, AA, probably Ronin all the way to rank 3 and above). If I go for dual crystals, and I get the champs I still want, there would be too much competition for catalysts. I'd rather get who I have up first, get the basics for iso and arena points, then go back to duals when I can rank up again.
