Splinterland Self Challenge

My Splinterlands Blog #71 – Season End and New Promo Card

Welcome to another entry where I write about my journey playing Splinterlands! Initially it was a self challenge, to see how far I could get with the initial set of cards plus whatever I could win. But, that kind of fell apart around week 30 (with the game integrating with the WAX network and users being able to buy and sell cards on Atomic Hub). Now, it’s mainly just me tracking my progress within the game.

The big news for this week is that Splinterlands is teaming up with the musician Waka Flocka to release a new promotional card. This will be a Death splinter summoner that grants poison to your team, and only 1,000 copies are going to be sold. The price is going to be 5,000 Splintershard tokens (SPS) and 500 Vouchers to get the 500 that will be available in-game. The others will be sold on Atomic Hub.

I doubt I will be spending that kind of money on a single card anytime soon.

Other than that, it was a fairly standard season of farming up more reward cards and Dark Energy Crystals (DEC). I didn’t play in any tournaments, so I’m just going to skip even adding that section this week. At any rate, here’s the weekly breakdown:

Daily Quest Rewards:

Daily Quest # 520 – Win 5 with Dragon. For completing this quest in Gold I, I got 23 (10 + 8 + 5) DEC, a Gold potion, a Pelacor Bandit (common monster), a Venari Heatsmith (common monster), a Djinn Renova (epic monster), and a Chaos Legion pack!

I got an epic monster, instead of a rare, out of the pack. It is one that I think is a great card and still need more copies of it!

Daily Quest # 521. Win 5 with Dragon. For completing this daily quest, I received 20 (4 + 3 + 3 + 10) DEC, 3 Gold potions, and a Venari Seedsmith (rare monster). Also of note, my alt account, InvestYGator, got a Djinn Chwala (epic monster)!

Daily Quest # 522. Win 5 with Death… re-rolled to Win 5 with Life. For completing this daily quest, I got 23 (6 + 9 + 8) DEC, a Legendary potion, a Pelacor Deceiver (common monster), a Pelacor Conjurer (common monster), a Gargoya Lion (common monster), and an Exploding Rats (rare monster).

Daily Quest # 523. Win 5 with Snipe. For finishing this daily quest, I received 166 (150 + 16) DEC, 2 Gold potions, a Pelacor Mercenary (common monster), a Venari Heatsmith, a Gargoya Lion, and a Djinn Chwala!

Daily Quest # 524. Win 5 with Death… re-rolled to Win 3 with No Neutral. For completing this daily quest, I got 13 (6 + 7) DEC, a Gold potion, a Pelacor Conjurer, a Pelacor Mercenary, a Pelacor Bandit, a Lava Launcher (epic monster), and a Djinn Chwala!

Daily Quest # 525. Win 5 with Fire… re-rolled to Win 5 with Death. After completing this daily quest, I advanced to Diamond 3 and got 15 (5 + 3 + 7) DEC, a Legendary potion, 3 Pelacor Deceivers, a Pelacor Bandit, a Pelacor Mercenary, and a Venari Heatsmith.

Guild Brawls:

Guild Brawl #63, playing Gold foil Bronze, Untamed only. I only had one opponent, but the guild is starting to do better in brawls again. We came in 2nd place in our grouping this round.

Vs BAKENBARD of (Something in Russian)

Guild Brawl #64, playing Gold foil Bronze, Untamed only. I only had one opponent again, but he fled before I tried to submit a team. On the bright side, we kept up our decent placing with another 2nd place finish.

I also picked up 2 Gladiator packs:

Although it is nice to get an epic and rare card, I’ve only been playing gold foil brawls, so I cannot actually use them.
A great pack with three gold foil cards! This will help my brawling a good bit!

The Rest:

No real trading this past week, though with the spike in Voucher prices from the upcoming promo card sale I might sell off mine. Card prices may have bottomed out, so I should probably look at picking up a few things. Granted, older sets didn’t really dip as much as Chaos Legion and newer reward cards.

My Gold II rewards from my InvestYGator account. Always nice to pick up another epic monster.
Another epic, plus a Chaos Legion pack on my main account. Lots of potions this season.

No real plans other than farming for the next season. I don’t really have time, or the cards, to try to grind for a leaderboard slot. I should probably try to do some more trading and see if I can’t improve my collection, but that also tends to take some time.

That’s about it for this week! If you made it this far, thank you for reading. If you have any questions or comments, please let me know. I’ll be back next week with another update!
