where can you find the 5* for 40pots?!? Very Happy

seriously... 5*... is always good if you plan to be in the game for a while. you never know... 1-2mths down the road, you can trade up for something else...

Considerations:

* Potions have never been more expensive than they are right now. This is the first event that uses them heavily, so their price is in serious flux. "Never been higher" usually screams sell, not buy, but that's my economic take on it.

* The response to the Dream Breaker set has been pretty negative, thanks to ugly art, and if precedent holds they will only give bonuses in this Halloween event (future events will have new cardsets giving bonuses.)

* Therefore, their future value will have three considerations: scarcity (in their favor), attractiveness (definitely not in their favor) and raw usefulness. Are the DB 5*s noticeably better in combat than existing 5*s? I'm... not sure about that. (Sogno has great stats but poor range, Rem > Kyo but that leaves a lot of room, Hrwm is just blah).

Keep in mind that a card that's deficient in one of these categories will drop like a rock. Meg, for instance, is a great card but dirt cheap because she was bought in droves.

Short version: If you need a cheap 5* for the sake of having a 5*, neither Rem nor Sogno are awful choices. If you are investing for later resale, these might not go up much over time.

If you like the card get it. I traded down my Mihiro for Kyo because I really liked her artwork.

Whenever I get a 5* DB I don't need, I sell them for 40 pots/te.

And I don't mean by just 40TE or 40 pots... I prefer a combination of the two totalling to 40.

I'm just desperate to let them go, that's all...

Well, mostly I've been selling them that cheap cause I've seen most people selling at maximum 100te, then 80te. Some have gotten close to 60te.

So to make sure I can sell mine with ease, I beat those prices with lower sales and be done with trading in an instant.

I should probably stop doing that... Razz

I don't sell 5* for luna at all, unless I state that I definitely need to for a particular unit...

The amount has to total up to 40 for the offer to be valid, so he'll need either 15 more te or pots or half and half for me to consider trading one.

The main reason, however, would be that I'm out of stock already. Next time I get some, it'll sell out fast within 5 minutes.

IT support for a bunch of clothing brands around Australia.
It's not a high paying job so I'm actually throwing my money away out of sheer boredom or irritation. -_____-!

You can reserve one if the offer is over 40. High offers get dibs first.

Hwrm May increase in value during the next Colesseum event given her 15 deploy cost. Might be a good idea to stash her for a bit.
