Where are you getting all the catalysts for 7* rank ups?

jdschwjdschw Posts: 207 ★★
I'm a relatively new paragon player, and I just got my 9th 7* champ. I have a bunch of 6*r4s, but no 6*r5s yet.

During the battlegrounds season, I've noticed that a lot of people already have 7*r2 champs, and the "valiant" title is reserved for people who have a couple 7*r3s. But where are you getting the catalysts to do these rankups?

In all the time I have been playing, I don't yet have 3 t6cc in any class, let alone the 4 I would need for a 7*r2 rank up. Additionally, I think I'm getting about one t3a/t6b every week or two, so it seems like it's going to take me a couple of months to collect 7 of each.

I generally beat EQ on cav & thronebreaker, and complete the paragon gauntlet. I'm also nearly done exploring 8.3, which will help with some rank-up stones. But I'm just wondering: is there some source of these high-level catalysts that I'm missing? How are you folks ranking up so many 7* champs?

    100% Act 8.2 and 8.3 will help you out big time + Events (TB EQ in the past, now shifted to ParaGauntlet) + Glory/Trophy Shop

    I have 3 R2s and enough T6CC for the other 3 classes I didn't R2, just not champs I'm interested in taking up. I still have the R2 gem from 8.3 too.

    People will claim its the wallet but the only thing I've bought this year is the Plat pass for Morbius.

    I buy 10 t6cc crystals from the Glory and BG store each week, and sometimes the selector. I also just do all content available for Paragons that provide it (Act 8, EQ, SQ) and have slowly accumulated it.

    T6 and T3A have been common as of late. It's the T6CC that needs hunting. I m close to my 2nd 7* R2, i m not spending on any rankups.

    The T6CC is what I’ve been lacking. I was surprised how many 6*R5 and 7*R2 champs I saw in BG. I still don’t have any of either but I also haven’t been 100%ing things lately.

    I have 2 r5s from 8.3 exploration r5 stones, and I've been paragon for a while. Don't have 4 t6cc of any class. Mostly I believe it comes from bg store, aq store, and $ deals. Iirc, July 4th had some relevant resources

    We might see many more R3s after Black Friday/cyber weekend

    They said there would be exactly 1 R3 in Cyber Weekend deals, my guess is for spending a boatload of cash.

    We'll probably see some R3 gems or crystals for placing super high in solo milestones for the Banquet, and maybe small amounts of T4A in the Banquet crystals (similar to T6CC in last years).

    I don't except the R3 flood gates to open too much before 8.4 but that's just my guess. July 4th will probably rain R3s from the sky like last year did with R5s if you spend a bunch of money, though.

    Just my guess tho based on how they've done things previously, tho they've been burning through the 7 stars life cycle so fast who knows.

    Yeah, it does seem fast, doesn't it? I really thought there would be a longer ramp up time. At this rate, we'll be seeing 8* champs introduced next year!

    They have confirmed that the intend on slowing down 7* progression after r3’s, they want to stretch out the 7* lifespan

    I stopped buying 6* shards and focussed solely on R5/R2 materials.

    After Cyber Monday, I reckon BGs will not be worth playing for f2p players.

    People said that last month, too. F2P will be fine, just behind.
