is it worth starting this now?

25 posts in this topic

i only got a ps4 a week or two ago and I'm wondering if its worth playing this game now with all the extra content and things. I see things on the trophy list like guild tasks and level 500 as well as the new dungeon delve thing.

 

is it worth it for a new fresh player with no guild or anything? I've heard most guilds are either casual and will never get the trophy or are so hardcore they demand like a million gold a week etc wich is impossible for new players.

 

just looking for some info on this.

I'd say yeah, it's worth the hassle. Sure, trophy list keeps getting longer every now and then. It's gotten quite grindy, but most trophies are pretty easy to achieve. There's a few exceptions like getting the 2 vaults which was easier in the early days. Regarding the guild trophies... well there's always people looking for active guilds. I for example have someone on my friend's list who is actually lookig for one such guild. You can try boosting here or try your luck at community.gemsofwar.com. There's even a guild chat here. Plus, now you can grind a few of the trophies at the same time, like getting higher levels, grinding for money, getting resources for Xathenos or waiting for a Vault Gnome to appear. This has been made easier.

Without a doubt, start it. We also have a PNSP co-op guild with about 15 very active members.  Wee do team synergy every couple months as well. The key to progress is getting in a quality, active guild

I loved Gems of war. It got weirdly addicting and was just about the only thing I played for about a month or so. New content made it nice but it felt pretty different once they started changing the layout of things although the same basic functions were still all there.

i will install it and send you a guild request filoogaroo though it will take me a wee bit to be able to donate/help guild guild tasks. Level 1000 sounds like a major grind or is there things bonus exp?

There's armor that gives exp bonus, when you win a guild war day you get double exp and if your willing to spend money there's a VIP exp bonus.

The only thing that keeps me away is probaly a level 1000 Trophy is coming!

Yeah that's my guess, too. Well, I'm level 1088...

I would say the majority of the trophies are completely doable. Couple of drawbacks to the game are that it is extremely card dependent and with the game being so well established it gets harder and harder to get specific cards over time. The game is highly focused on PvP and after a while I stalled out on PVP until I got one great card then I jumped up in my win/loss ratio and hit another stumbling block until getting another great card to complement it, etc. Until that point I basically did a bit of PVP each week but after that I am able to get to Rank PvP every week in one day.

 

The other drawback is that after the latest patch there are basically multiple daily events going on that if you don't participate in will result in missed loot. Basically plan on putting in 1-2 hours minimum each day to do everything available for maximum rewards. On top of that each event has a list of items that can be bought via in game premium currency to make them easier or to get specific cards. They give a good amount of ways in game to earn the currency, but not enough to even keep up with all the events.

 

Oh and the latest patch added a trophy about a month ago that I've only heard of one person getting so far and that was on the Xbox. So considering that the game has been out over 2 years and there are people playing it 5+ hours a day regularly resulting in no one of the PS side of things (that I'm aware of) completing a trophy in one month sound like it will be a tough one to 100% assuming no new trophies are ever added.....

Bottom line - if you enjoy a game, play it!  If you are worried about your completion stats or trophies, you might miss out on some great games.  I play ESO and don't really care about the stats; I enjoy being in a Guild and just the whole MP experience.  If I get a trophy, then great!

We have trophy hunting based guild with basically no requirements other than be somewhat active player, anything else is voluntary. We're doing Team Synergy once in a while, so you'd get it before hitting lvl 500 for sure. I don't know how are things with you now, but if you or anyone else is interested, send me message on psn.

 

Also, it's a massive grind to achieve 100% and devs keep adding new features/trophies, so unless you really like this type of games or don't mind leaving it unfinished, I wouldn't recommend it trophy-wise. It's a great game though ☺️

 

edit: well it's lvl 1000 now 😄

Well new DLC says reach level 1000 wich i was scared off.

 

Nothing is worst than the only gold trophy in the game... instead releasing new troops for each faction to make that trophy “achievable”, they release new crap. Thought shit these devs -_-

Start at your own risk. My trophy hunting has grinded to a halt since I got more and more addicted to this excellent game.

Jesus fucking Christ of course they did a Level 1000 trophy. Fuck this, I'm done with this game. I've done most of the trophies but still only at Level 140. It's obvious they're just catering to the diehards who play literally nothing else with these updates.

The level 1000 trophy is grindy, but there are plenty of ways to cut down the necessary work for it if you put in some time and have a guild that can help you out.

 

On the other hand, the trophy for reaching the maximum possible renown in a single faction is brutal.  Which is probably why PSN still has it at 0.0% several weeks after its' release, because it's just that hard.

Yeah, the delve related trophy is a huge grind. I'm not seeing myself getting it for a long time. I've gotten to level 210 with all seeing eye faction but I'm not seeing a way to beat it until I level the treasure up an insane amount. The delves are the worst. Can spend 20-30 minutes doing one at higher levels and then get unlucky on the last match and get basically nothing. Nothing like 20 minutes to get a few 100 glory. Guess it is better than 0 glory, but honestly the only reason I run them is for the new shards and gold to level the treasure horde up. Quite the vicious cycle...

 

Then again at least another week or so before I can get the new trophy they just added since the Doom Tower (or whatever it is lol) event doesn't start for a few days.

You can always stay on lvl 20 in one delve and use it as "farming" delve, just upgrade treasure horde to 10 quality and then you can stop ugrading it and concentrate on delve you want to max out, I did this with Sea of Sorrow and even though I use soul farming team, delve is completely finished under 10 minutes, so if you'd use some effective team, Dragons for example, it could possibly be done in 5 minutes. And if you want to do delve events and collect it's rewards, just do all rooms except "boss" fight and you'll stay on lvl 20.
