Sun Chests - To Craft or not to Craft

Post by Zandig on Sun Mar 02, 2014 10:10 am

Sun Chests are not terribly cheap to craft, but they can contain really valuable materials like 5 star evo mats, 5 star gear or 5 star gear plans.

Do people have thoughts on whether or not sun chests are worth it to craft? I have about 35 recipes sitting around in my warehouse.

Some of us gather 200+ recipes and just let them sit around till "the right time"

It's better to spend your crystals on evolving 5* heroes to shield (or near it) then mass crafting sun chests for the chance of 5* gear (evo mats are nice to), as gear will remain with you for longer (you'd only replace with Kings gear, which comes very VERY slowly in pieces).

In time you'll swap to 6* heroes and they'll inherit the 5* gear you built.

It's common amongst the "top players" to have large stashes of chests before opening (100+) as it's believed that opening in mass has better odds of getting rarer items. So don't craft 1-2 chests a day and open them immediatly.

Something else you have to remember is that 6* heroes cost 6* materials. Spending hundreds of 4* energy stones to craft sun chests will hinder your power if you aren't prepared for it when the day comes you get a 6*.

Listen to the sodas '3'
you have to balance the idea of having more gear that will stick with you longer OR having materials ready for your 6* heroes when they come.
Having an evolved 6* hero with shadow gear will be better than a non-evolved 6* hero with knight or guardian gear (Unless you managed to pull an entire set, which is along the same chance of pulling a 6* in summon)

So 5* gear will help you now, investing for a 6* will help significantly more when the time comes.

Thanks for the tips! It doesn't help that I've had horrendous luck with my summoning (and one attempt at awakening, for that matter). Master Wu is the only worthwhile 5 star hero I've summoned, and I put together nexara with pieces.

You mentioned King's gear in a way that makes it sound like it is an upgrade to guardian or knight's gear. Is that the case? I thought all equivalent * gear was equivalent. Not the case?

No, Kings gear is a lot better than Guardian gear in the long term, but nothing beats the 6* gear that no one know's about yet ;P

King > Knights > Guardian.

I crafted 80 sun chests about 2 weeks before I mastered talia, and got Ophelia (same day) wish I had saved those stones for more 6* stones.

ophelia just hangs out in my inventory...
