Not enough defender medals to go around?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

The last update saw the introduction of the Shard Vendor along with Materials Coversion, which gave us the option to use medals to convert materials. Materials conversion is great and reduces the grind somewhat. But it also means we're having to spend more of our medals or gold. Introducing more things into the game that cost defender medals mean that technically, our hard earned medals can't go as far now as we'd perhaps like.. with no increase in the chances of obtaining them. 

With that said, how about we get a small increase in the medals that are obtainable from quests? Like does a 15% to 25% increase seem reasonable? At the top quest roll we could potentially earn around 550 medals per quest.  The number of maps required would also be increased from three to four to compensate. Seem fair? 

Also maybe there could be a similer increase in the bonus amount we recieve from expedition and onslaught maps.

I don't really know about the balance to say much. Although I would definitely welcome more def medals.

Also, it would be nice for the quest system to have a little spice to them! It just need more stuffs.

Be great if dailies include new stage types. Tired of only playing castle, town, ravine, and forrest.

Indeed. Much more wholesome to add the rest.

I really wish the pirate, dungeon, and frost maps were included. I am burnt out on Throne Room LOL

We used to have more options, but we complained and asked it to be changed. Wasn't fair for new players when a c7 incursion was picked.

Id love if the weekly incursion challenge looked at what chaos level you are on and then assigned a stage from that difficulty or below. Something more than c3 would be welcomed at this point.

I defiantly think defender medals should be WAY quicker and easier to earn. A standard map only gives you 23 DM (apart from the Drakenfrost keep giving 25) which is no way near enough. You would need to play 44 full maps to atleast earn 1,000 (not counting the daily/weekly quests) and thats a **** ton of grinding!

I think the amount of DM you earn per map should at least be tripled.

Yas! Plz! MORE DMs!!!

Right now if we reroll 225 quest, and play 3 hrs weekly, we can only get 10k DM every three weeks on average.....

Please bump that to 10k+ DM every 2 weeks if we play 3 hrs+ weekly !!!!

You get 3k DM on avg for just logging in doing a couple maps for dailies/weekly and logging out. Assuming 15 min maps that's 3 hours and 45 mins of play per week. At that point you are barely playing. Extend that to 2 hours per day, still with 15 min maps, you make 4k DM per week. This is about the average players play time. Bump that to 5 hours per day and you are making 6k DM per week.

This is assuming all dailies are 300 so any 450 dailies you get will increase this and you should always reroll 225 so it basically doesn't exist. They also have to make money somehow since it is a free to play game so somewhere they have to entice you to spend something. I think they had it wrong early on in the game's life but now they have plenty of things to spend DM on to have a decent balance between time and benefit.

If they want to make money, why not just add a $99 DLC for 900k DM's I'll totally buy...

Most things you can use DM on you can also use Gems on. Just buy Gems.

Defender medals are the alternate currency of gems but for free-to-play players
