I don’t think you mean non-epic heroes. You can take non-epic eligible heroes into epic dungeon. You can take heroes below orange level gear rarity. Notice that Claw and Scion are the only 2 epic eligible heroes on my team, but all 5 are orange level.
Since epic dungeon means orange level heroes, I call them epic heroes. Lol. Whether or not they qualify for epic gear is another story, because not all of them do.
P.S. I may have oversimplified my response but hopefully it made sense. I do have two epics on the team. But honestly, when I come to this game I just wanna unwind, relax and enjoy after a hard day. PerBlue however, thinks I should work out formulas, equations, basic quantum theory and perhaps obtain an engineering degree to build winning teams. Once it starts getting too complex I tune out. And that’s where this is headed for me once you add the grind factor for shards and rapid release of new heroes.
You cant use purple heroes. But you can use orange heroes. Not all orange heroes have that star above their heads. Those with a star are epic.
So for every orange hero you bring that havent a skill mentioned in epic section at hero menu is a gear drop loss.
If you bring 5 heroes that have an epic skill defined already you will get 3-4 epic gear drops every floor
Lol so many debuffs. Rip ^.^
You better bring 5 epic heroes. That way you get 5/2 times more drops every floor (statistically speaking). So even if u whipe at floor 4 that would be an improvment as if u cleared floor 10 with only 2 epic heroes.
Im at 30 epic shards for 4 heroes already.
Chaos seems to get priority at epic dungeon somehow. I put him in my team 3 days ago and he got 30 epic shards already
I was doing some Epic grinding over this past weekend’s contest and also noticed it is taking a huge investment of time and resources to get just a few Epic gear shards. I’m glad you did the math, Warchief… i was thinking it might take at least a week and 2-3 hours per day just to possibly get 1 hero their Epic skill… then i heard Epic gear itself has levels to grind too wth!!! If it is not fixed to AT LEAST give 1 shard of gear per qualifying toon in your party (as it was that 1 day where they secretly uncapped Epic keys), then this will be the death of PQ, im sure. People already spent many hours per day of their lives on this game before ED… now with the current drop rate of Epic gear, they are expecting another 2+ hours of daily grinding out of us to stay competitive??? This is known as not respecting your customers’ time/life… PerBlue please don’t expect us to spend half our waking lives devoted to playing your game, especially to grind something relatively boring and monotonous… because i assure you, we won’t.
To get 5 epic heroes should only take me another two months or so. LOL
I’m working on them, but there’s no joy in it.
I think you complain too much, sincerely I think you want everything at the highest level and what you want now, without investing time in the game.
I am only complaining about the drop rate of epic gear items as you should receive 1 epic shard per boss fight. That is still a grind but no reason to get upset. I get pissed off when I do a run and see someone else with the same heros get to the same floor with an extra 10 epic shards. Makes you think who gets the lucky end of the straw when it comes to epic shards.
Epic dungeon is utterly broken. Unless you include a couple key heroes you wont be getting past floors 5-7. Which that alone takes about an hour grind for a handful of shards. Its insane and has been the final straw for a lot of players with multiple accounts giving up the extras and dropping down to a single server. The time commitment for the difficulty is simply stupid. I have 0 interest in obtaining the epic skills if it takes that much grinding. And if the lack of epic skills means I cant be competitive, my interest in the game will die as well. Per Blue need a to fix epic dungeon before they start losing more players over it.
It’s hard to even run this dungeon when you hit 2 floors, 3 bosses and 100% complete, for ONE epic shard.
My biggest problem with epic dungeon isn’t even with collecting shards, or the fact that every level up requires more shards and 5 hero shards. It’s the fact that you must sacrifice 2 other dungeon modes no matter what. If I’m doing epic that means I can’t do endless to get pony up 5* and collect tons of gear. I finished scion to 5* , but now have to go back to boss dungeon to get more scion shards to upgrade his epic skill. You literally can only choose 1 thing to do at a time. I think somehow epic gear shards need to be incorporated into endless dungeon, or something. This is spreading players to thin to keep up competitively.
Advice from Goat: tske that torch buff at the shrines. Stack it 3 to 5 times. You no longer consume torches while at epic dungeon.
Thank me later.
You can PM me some hermit shards. Ty ty ty
IoXe, do you even Dungeon, bro??? Seriously though, if you’ve been doing any Epic Dungeon grinding at all, you understand that these “complaints” are justified… you honestly would have to do ED for about 2 hours per day for 1 week straight to get roughly 100 Epic Gear shards/scraps… that could translate to about 2 toons’ Epic skills per 1 week of exclusive dungeoning… multiply that out by the about 15 toons who currently have Epic skills/gear, and that’s about 7 weeks of daily devotion to unlock everyone’s Epic skill (which starts at skill level 60), not including the other daily tap tap tasks in PQ… then on top of that, each toons’ Epic skill can be leveled up to level 95 or whatever the current server cap is, with each skill level requiring 5 hero shards and a handful more Epic gear shards/scraps… so my main “complaint” was that Epic Dungeon requires much too much real time out of peoples’ lives to stay competitive with the top 20 or so guilds, which means PerBlue doesn’t consider the fact that this game is supposed to be a fun way to pass time, not the focal point of our lives… this highly excessive grinding has already turned off and will continue to turn off many otherwise devoted players… but if you’re not high enough level and/or not doing ED, you wouldn’t understand
I do epic dungeon every day, I have 4 epic heroes, I invest my time and my torches, if what you are looking for is that they give you everything easy, what sense does it have?
You hit the nail on the head. Way too much of a time commitment for measly drops. Stingiest thing ever.
I agree to a point, they need to look at giving that boss’ shard plus epic shard as reward for that boss. Just a suggestion
@PSYCHO_SID You 100% of the time get an epic shard in epic dungeon. As long as all the heroes in your team have an epic skill that is.
I think it is easy,
Not all the time, about 1/2 the time I get purple or overloaded orange. All my heroes are orange 2, ready to go orange 3 . One of most popular items is pocket horror.
