Summoners, the Necrosword Crystals (the crystals in the Knull Cavalier Preview Bundle) currently have a higher than intended drop rate of 6-Star Champions.

We will be leaving the crystals as is for the time being, but will be correcting the drop rates before Knull receives his official release on October 28th. To ensure that this does not affect anybody that purchased this preview bundle, we will be auto-opening these crystals before that date, but this means you will not see what you received. To avoid any confusion, please open your crystals yourself ASAP.

Atlantean Crystals

The Tier 4 Atlantean Crystal says 75% chance at 5-star shards, but do we know how many shards this is?
Same question for Tier 3 etc.

    hmm I was worried about that. If it was 1000 I would probably be more inclined to go for it.
    Is it random? are other people getting different amts?

    I got 250 5* shards from 1 epic crystal. Honestly disappointed. I would have been ok with 1k

    everyone would have, and would have pretty much chosen that over the rifts, why would they give that many.

    bad attempt at sarcasm.

    Actually, even if all the 5* shard drops were 1k the crystal would still be a bad deal compared to running either rift: the expected value of both the stable and unstable tier 4 rift would be much better.

    The in-game email did say the crystals contained lower net value, and it seems they have substantially lower valule. Depending on how you value resources, they seem to me to have statistically about half the value of either rift.

    I got 9k t2A. Was hoping for 5 star shards to see the drop rate

    I opened an unstable rift yesterday and got the 5* +5 level science signature stone.

    How does anyone think that is a high enough reward to belong in epic?

    The previous one I opened was a 5* featured which was a double edged sword because I pulled Cable... first time

    But the real gripe I have is releasing the Atlantean Crystal so late in the piece and with no warning. Where is the transparency and openness there?

    If I knew this was coming chances are I would’ve saved my shards and just gone for the crystal to save my energy and time as well.

    I got a fully formed 5* crystal that contained Gwenpool....

    Side note, always read first. I thought the Crystals gave 5k Shards for the next Tier. I was surprised when I popped 2 Tier 1s. Lol.

    Probably. But the trade off is you get 2.5k corals of the next level instead of 5k.

    Opened a top tier crystal yesterday and got a fully formed 5 star which gave me Magik!

    I've seen 250 and 500 now for 5-star shard amounts... anyone seen 750? 1000?

    I belive the original post for Rifts mentioned that 'starting June 19th Atlantean Crystals will be available', sooo they did actually give plenty of warning about that.

    Cheers... so I guess if I want something worse than a 5* sig stone from unstable rift that I got then I should open one of these whizz bang crystals then... lol
