Hall of Heroes is on right now (as of this writing) and I have to say I’m loving the new changes (I know many of you are too). This game was already a huge grind fest as it is, what with the all the rune farming and EXP grinding and whatnot, so farming skillups in Hall of Heroes was always something I approached with a bit of apathy.
The fact that I can now get it over with in a few fell swoops is a welcome change to the game. Some of the more savvy veterans won’t be happy, since they’re probably used to farming 11 monsters at a time, but this definitely makes things a lot easier for early and mid-game players. I obviously don’t expect they’ll try and make every element of the game this way, but taking some of the grind out of the game, even just a little bit, is always a welcome improvement.
This week, I want to know what you all think of the new Hall of Heroes format. Good? Bad? Don’t care? Have your say here!
Since Barque is this month’s Hall of Heroes, you may be wondering whether he’s even worth getting. YDCB took the bullet and got one up and running himself! Check out the results here!
You can also see how JewBagel handles Barque in his video here!
Barque vs Hwa
Have both and can’t decide which to use? Perhaps you don’t even have Hwa and want to know if he’s a substitute? Konamya breaks it down in this post.
Beware of Scam Sites
I thought it would be a good time to remind everyone to beware of sites that promise you “cheap” or “free” crystals, in exchange for money or the time spent filling out a few surveys. A certain prominent streamer (whom I will not name) has recently been advertising such sites, which is disappointing to say the least.
Not only are such sites against the game’s Terms of Service, but in 100% of instances, they are also fake. Chances are, if you give these guys a lick of your money or time, you will never get what was promised, and will likely see that time and money down the drain.
B10 Team Building
The first step to progression in SW is being able to farm runes. But where to start? Chaos-n-Dissonance has written up a great guide to doing such a thing, with tips for getting your GB10, DB10, and NB10 teams all up and running! A must read whether you’re new, or have been playing a while but have just been lazy.
And if you’re looking for something aimed more at Necro (since that always trips everyone), check out EmpyrianSW’s video on the subject!
