    Hi guys,
    I am at level 41 so I am making/made shift from rares to epic. As many know that at my captain level rares treated as uncommons and I even scrap every rares I get:mad:, as I got epics better than rares:).
    So now I am close to 4000 pearls (f2p).
    Is it still worthy to spend on epic container?
    10 rares,10 rare powercells are basically useless:rolleyes:, with the introduction of guild raffle I don't need to worry of epic pieces (ya only epic powercells are important for me now).

    EPIC PARTS have become so so important to upgrade epics and the shop doesn't contain much parts too. I recently came across offer of 800 epic parts for 8000 pearls( seems too costly:eek:) but at this point I feel that's the only efficient way to spend pearls.

    So guys give ur suggestions what do u think or any other best ways to spend pearls
    Also
    Is epic container really worth at end game?
    Don't u think battle bay needs another type of chest that's really worth the hard earned pearls? (What kind of chest would be great post ur thoughts too)

    You still need blue parts to upgrade epics.
    For 8000 pearls, you can get 2 epic containers. That's at a minimum:
    - 2 legendary pieces
    - 2 epic items
    - 18 epic pieces
    - 18 rare items

    So if you scrap all that, you won't get 800 epic parts, but the question is, is all the rest of it worth it? (Remember the blue parts are still good for upgrading epics)

    20 premium crates put together, 5 epics, 15 rares, 17 epic pieces, 3 legendary pieces, 20 epic powercells, 20 rare powercells, and cost 8000 pearls.

    I do agree blue parts are good for upgrading but atleast I get huge amount of them from shop.
    Right now epic items are not ground breaking for me as I have to upgrade existing epic items and totally fine with getting epic items further down the line with no real hurry. To upgrade the existing items is real pain.

    I’m in the same situation, slowly swifting from rares to epics (mostly done already) and i’m completely f2p. I only spend pearls for epic containers and inventory upgrades, since i hoard every epic. In my opinion, those are the only ones worth spending as a f2p, since you get a lot of rare parts and epic items/pieces that will help you. I would also buy that offer, but it might be easier to just buy containers than to collect 8000 and then wait for that offer again.

    Watched it long back and loved it, to my surprise I was doing same as genki explained in it :p, but the epic container holds good in early of the game not the end game(for f2p) agree?

    I disagree. The best way to get epic parts/items with pearls is through Premium chests, and the Epic Container is the best way to buy them.

    For me, I usually scrap any epic that I don't use or won't use for the seeable future to get parts. I know I wasted countless blue parts and sugar that won't get given back but blue parts can be bought much more easily than epic, and sugar can be gained through grinding.
    In terms of pearls, I don't think any chest is worth it. Thats why I never save up. Spending 4000 pearls on 1-2 epics that you probably don't use is kinda useless, especially if you don't use the rares you get.

    I agree epic container is best for getting epic parts/ items( don't forget epic powercells) but if u grinded or played long enough it won't be that much of difficult to get epics that u want to work on, upgrading them is the pain so getting epics from epic container and just hoarding them in inventory is not helping u in any way... U will get the epics with raffles easily in a long run.

    Lets see the scrapping conversion (neglecting legendary piece )
    • 1 epic item ~ 46 -56 epic parts
    • 9 epic pieces( assuming 1 epic item)~ 46 -56 parts
    • 9 rare items ~ 1197-1320 rare parts (great)
    • 10 rare powercells (doesn't care)
    • 10 epic powercells (awesome)
    Adding them all 92-112 epic parts + 1197 -1320 rare parts + 10 powercells is what we all get.
    (We grind so hard for long time to get 3.9k pearls this doesn't seem worth at all)
    PS. Epic container is great deal early in the game not taking that away at all, what about the end game?

    Right...How long have you been playing? I'm at least 1 year into this game and I still don't have a 4th epic copy of any weapon I've been running for 6 months. I added Fire Bomb to my loadouts because I got 4 of those, and just last week I got a 4th Epic Ex Canon, but last time I used that was my T5 Uncommon. Difficult to acquire is an understatement for me, but maybe RNGeezus likes you. My first legendary weapon after 1 year: Standard Mortar. Need more? See below.

    I am one of those that was affected by lack of Rare power cells. Once I qualified for T5 Canons it took me 3 months to gather enough power cells to upgrade the items I already had in my inventory. The only way I know of to get more chances at epic items that I actually use is to buy Containers.

    The 25 pearl shop refreshes are the best IMO because they slow me to buy more epic parts and I am limited to only do it 4 times a day, after that I have to decide between boosts or epic container and this is where it’s tough.

    The only other time to use pearls would be if you just haven’t played enough to buy the 50 epic parts In the shop and don’t have enough time to farm the gold. Things like that.

    Also inventory is very good.

    Yes it is only in later stages that powercells get a bit troublesome. I don't uplevel much and if I do, I usually scrap other items for cells so I never have a lack. But other people in ace have a huge problem with gathering them.

    It’s usually a matter of if they spent a lot of money, for f2p we amount enough power cells, or rather don’t get enough parts to use the cells

    Edit: that being said I may be getting close to needing some, and for that I will scrap lvl 11 rares, no huge cost

    Worth it or not , it is the only good way to spend pearls . Parts are so costly , 5 rare parts =19 pearls.
