Haha, try out Gremist in your discard deck ShowTime. He seems like one of the better of the cycle of silver mages with 3 spells attached; I'm turning so many lovely NG spies into bears.

Oh i'm running him. Fog is really great, but so is the bear spell. Priestess of Freya and yea, spies, make such good fodder. Then the random clear skies option if needed. Plus Sigrdrifa and Decoy if I need to do it again.

What the hell, the deck management tutorial for 100 ore or w/e just had me transmute a card except I think it actually used up 100 meteorite powder

I got the card, and a premium clear skies isn't the worst, but...

e: maybe I'm too tired and it was just the 100 powder it gives you for the tutorial.

Looks like the tutorial is bugged! It's taking away your scrap to craft it, then the powder too instead of giving the resources for free. People that already did the tutorial are getting reimbursed the next patch/hotfix.

Hit level 3. You CAN mill leaders, but they're legendary so you're gonna pay out the rear end to re craft them. Ended up with almost 3k scrap from my 125 kegs, still got 8 or so free kegs to collect when I finish the challenges for scrap. Pretty satisfying collection too; netted all commons, almost all rares, a good amount of epics, six legendaries, and a buttload of premiums... probably 20 or so, including a legendary premium and three epic premiums.

You get a good amount of powder back from milling premium commons/etc, so if there's a leader/legendaries/etc you really want to turn premium, you can probably do it fairly quickly. Already made 30 powder just getting to level 3 too, so that's nice.

Still amazed that because of the age rating we can't have Poor loving Infantry or even Whoreson Junior, but we can have the Field Medic Premium card, that depicts a woman sawing a guys arm, and the sound of the card is the man screaming in pain and the sound of bone scrapping. It's really cool but also kinda hosed up.

Edit: When you open a premium card shoop says "movie card"

You already have Geralt, Leo Bonhart is good but is very specific to a play-style of Nilfgaard(Reveal mechanic) so it needs a lot of support across all colours, while Metz will enhance any starting Northern Realms decks.

IIRC it was been discussed here that NR is one of the best factions for beginners with semi-competitive decks for not too much dust, am I right?

Nobody really knows yet. Every deck will have 4 legendaries, 6 epics, and 15 rares/commons so cheaper will just be a function of how many neutral golds/silvers you can run. Before it was more about not having essential legendaries (which NR didnt really have so much, its best cards post-Pavetta were all epics).

A lot has changed, all decks now have more or less the same dust cost, as the Silver cards are all rare and Gold legendary. NR also changed significantly, so not sure if they are still newbie friendly. The pick in that pack boiled down to "Do I pick a card that is one piece of a larger archetype, or a a card that will improve right away the started deck?" Metz is a much better pick if your just starting out. But hey if Reveal nilfgaard turns out the be this meta cancer deck you can blame me.

Level up rewards seem to only be kegs, scraps, meteorite powder, and random (?) cards. No more free ciri etc I guess.

Rank up rewards also seem to have been nerfed? I recall getting 800 scraps at some point in closed beta, now it mostly just scales up at 1 keg, 25 scrap, or 100 powder at each individual rank up.

Nilfgaard has RNG on what cards they reveal I think, but aside from that I can't think of anything. It's a card game though so there's always RNG in what cards you draw.

Level 12 was 800 scraps in CB. It was so good.

Also laughing at the guy in reddit who played 12 hours straight to reach rank 13 in CB because the devs made it sound like there would be different level 1-15 borders each season.

Some cards deal damage to 1 random unit or X random units. Gaunter O' Dimm has Gamble where you pick a number below or above 5 and if you hit it right you draw a card, if not your opponent draws a card(it's unplayable).

There is some RNG here and there, but nothing at the level of HS.

Edit: Ah! They changed KoB like I said they would.

Yeah, the keyword system and actual tooltips are a step up from closed beta, but it feels very MTGish where I have to sit and read over how Brave works each time I see it until it's ingrained in my memory.

Only 3 leaders left to beat to finish unlocking all of them, and discard Skellige is whomping on every AI so far except Dagon, who forced me to actually put some clear skies and armorsmiths in my deck. Monster weaaattheeeerrr!!

They switched to a very strange keyword-based explanation style and I had to, like, re-read descriptions of cards I already knew. Holding mouse over a card in battle helps, it'll eventually show the descriptions of all of its keywords.

Also, I tried putting the House that casts Frost back into deck and playing it again with Decoy but it doesn't cast another Frost on the second Deploy. You guys think this is a feature?

EDIT: "I have seen tons of posts today wondering why sometimes Wild Hunt Hound doesn't play a Frost. SUMMON a card means pull one from your deck (if there is one). SPAWN a card means create it out of thin air. So if there are no Frosts left in your deck, you can't Spawn a Frost. Same with Wild Hunt Navigator.
Good luck out there!"

Ah. loving keywords.

If I spam any button (to sign in) then it'll eventually go through but so far I've beaten Eithne twice in the ST challenge with no credit due to a disconnect after the match completes. Annoying; and I'm pretty sure the problem's not on my end. I had nothing like this when I played ~a month ago.

I did this. I also thought the border was exclusive per season, but at least the title was. And I got rewards for this current season that were cool. I also didn't spend nearly 12 hours, only a few.

Yeah Gremist is already auto-include in every Skellige deck I play just for the clutch clear skies, and being able to bounce him with sigrfrida is too good when it's a straight weather deck. Weather also adds a lot of value to all the multi-row cards, but then sometimes you play into drought/rag...

I'll probably put together a weather monsters deck at this rate though, weather seems stronger than it did before the change but maybe I need to play it and learn the weaknesses.

Unless the generic "card"s on the rewards table are the old level up rewards of a specific cards, maybe not. No way to know for a few weeks until people level up again. I'd probably take the Ciri either way.

e: She used to be a level 18 reward, the new reward at 18 is a keg. There is "1x cards" at level 20, but you're probably super safe to grab that Ciri.
