Default Hero Crystals

Has anyone noticed that the chances of getting Hero Crystals has changed.
I think its harder to get them since the level possible was upped to 15.
I used to get them at least 1 in 5 ish. Now I've tried about 8 or more times and still nothing.

The chances have not changed. That's such a small sample. You were just unlucky.

Let's say your guild had one LoM and you had 3 generals at level 5. So your crystal drop chance was 15+3 = 18%. The chance you don't get a crystal out of 8 tries is (1-0.18)^8*100 = 20.4%. Unlucky but no big deal.

Im not so sure...

I have a 90% chance per day to get one according to the devs post (Guild always has 4 lands in LoM... and I already have 30+ generals at level 5+)

I still "often" get one... but it's more like 70% for me now.

It's possible that lands that you are defending don't count. This way your 70% would make sense.

A nice addition would be to add 2 tiers to Conquest duels. If you could achieve (and hold onto) level 12, you would get the 15% base chance at a power crystal from Cassandra. If you could get to level 15 (and defend yourself at that level) you would get 30% base chance for crystals. That way the non-guild people would have a chance to fight for them, as well as non-slayer guilds would have a more equal chance to get them.

They don't as far as I'm aware.

Still wouldnt make sense.

Since I should have said "Our guild always has 4+ lands in LoM".


9 at the moment. 2 in defend mode. We had 4 in defend mode when I did my Cassandra roll yesterday (Cursed). But that still left another 4 not being defended (I think we only had 8 yesterday).

RNG is too streaky to tell unless you use a large sample size. I get 2 crystals back to back sometimes. Other times I'll get cursed every day for 2 weeks straight. I have 9 heroes with crystals at level 5 so my chances should be 24% with 1 land and 39/54 with 2 or 3. We usually have 1 land, sometimes 2, rarely 3, never 4. We also sometimes have zero since we don't conquer every land that comes up, we tend to wait for an easy set of monsters and we don't get them via PVP very often. So overall our average is probably about .8 mist lands if you count the times when we don't have any.
