      New Level 42 Spellement Recipes are RIDICULOUS!

      So I won a Beastmoon Mayhem match, and I was dropped the stormwing spellement recipe.

      Below, you can see it:

      So, I crafted it twice and I only got one single spellement. Sooo, you'll need 540 Moongold dust and 2,160 of any stormIdols to get a max spellement path.

      How do I know this? Well, it costs 35 spellements to upgrade a spellement from 0>1 then 75 1>2 and 115 to 2>3 and so on.

      75+115+155+195=540!

      This also means it'll take at maxium 54 months to max a spellement, as you get 10 max dust per event. This doesn't take into account getting dropped the actual spellements, though.

      Did anyone happen to craft these and get more than 1? It says "Spellements", plural. So I'm wondering if theres a chance you get more than 1?

      54 months?? The game's servers will be long dead by that point! ..Just more evidence that the Devs don't even play their own game.



      Decius has repeatedly said that he'll get around to making the whole Spellemental system much more practical on multiple KI Lives, and so I have to wonder if this update is what he meant by that. Because any wizard worth their alchemical salt can blatantly see the impossible amount of grinding nessacary to fully upgrade these new spells.

      But, from what I've gathered, the intended method of farming the new Beastmoon Spellements is via the Beastmoon seeds, but the drop rates there are seemingly similarly atrocious as well.

      Re: New Level 42 Spellement Recipes are RIDICULOUS!

      I got a couple of these recipes (Stormwing and Elemental Golem) earlier today from my Fire Moon Seeds on my Fire and wow. I took one look at the recipes and knew that I was never going to craft them. The recipes are WAY too expensive to make and on top of that I'm not the biggest fan of Beastmoon mayhem and I don't have any interest in playing it which means I won't be able to get one of the reagents. It's very clear that the devs intended to make upgrading spells a very very VERY long process as evident by extremely low drop rates, ridiculously overpriced recipes, and (everyone's favorite) paywalls.

      Not to mention it, but if you look at how incremental the upgrades are,why bother? An extra 5 points of damage per upgrade, on a level 1 spell that I don't even put in my deck unless its for a very specific opponent? Maybe to get the spell, like it was with daybreaker/nightbringer. But unlike those two, you can't learn these spells using spellements, only upgrade them.

      If you really want the new level 42 spells, just go to the school teacher and learn it for 1 training point (free if its your school).

      If you're a Duelist 15 extra damage could easily be the difference between a victory or loss. No PvE Player would sell their soul for 20 extra damage, but with the countless micro-upgrades KI pumps into the Arena, your only choice is to buy into all of them to remain relevant.
      This is what makes the Spellemental Packs so deadly- they serve as the only viable option for Duelists to obtain these powerful upgrades (Some of which come packaged with unique utility), which translates to big money for KingsIsle.

      That's another thing I noticed when looking at the spellement upgrades when I got them. The devs obviously want us to upgrade them otherwise they wouldn't have given upgrades, however because the damage only increases by 5 damage (15 for the golems) each time there's little to no reason to put in the work for hundreds of spellements. The only reason why I'd personally want to upgrade the spells to max is for the sake of completion.
