So, just to catch you up, I have been collecting Cosmic Cube shards this entire week and sitting on them. Ouch! Pointy… Anyway, for some crazy reason there was a bug that wasn’t allowing me to trade them in to get my Fortune Cards. So, again I had to accumulate them and wait for a fix. That fix came in a patch this morning. Patch 1.12. So, now instead of trading them in to Moondragon, Rogue, or Invisible Woman you will buy the Fortune Cards from Clea for 10 shards a card. I had accumulated 23 in that time so, I got 2 cards. What did I get?
Iron Man Stealth Armor! Yay!
and the other one was an …Iron Man Stealth Armor… yay. Ok, so I got 2 of them. I’ll stash it and hopefully I can craft it into another random one someday.
That makes the second costume that I have received from Fortune Cards. There are 5 available in total so I have the following remaining. Captain America – The Captain Costume, Deadpool – Unmasked Costume & Wolverine – Days of Future Past Costume. Since I don’t have any of the other characters I was really hoping for the Stealth Armor. That’s fine, It will keep the Thor – Destroyer Costume company in my STASH.
It’s going kinda slow. So far, I’ve been able to collect 74 shards. That averages out to be about 6 an hour. I’ve been busy. I have really been in deliberation about whether I will go for the 175 splinter Random Hero Box or just shoot for a 200/400/600 splinter character. The 175 price tag seems to be obvious but what if my first time getting the Random Hero Box I get a duplicate? Yeah, I wouldn’t be very happy. Although you can use duplicates to upgrade your ultimate power for the dupe you got it just doesn’t sit well with me. Seeing how I very seldom use my Ultimate Powers. (Maybe if they had a hot-key for it? hmmmmm.)
So, I think my plan of action is this: Keep collecting to get 175 E splinters and then get a Random Hero Box until I reach 11 Heroes. Then I will buy them specifically with splinters after that point. Ya gotta play the odds. I might push it to 12 heroes but I can’t be sure right now. With there being 22 heroes currently available 11 makes it a 50/50 shot and I’m never lucky so there ya go.
They have been talking about lowering the amount of time you receive E Splinters to lower than 8 minutes. Yes it is currently on a timer. Most of the time it is right on the money. Also, they have toyed with the idea of throwing in drops of like 10 splinters. That would help a lot because I have had shotty luck lately.
-Last Hero was on 7-5-13
-Last and only Costume drop from loot was on 7-3-13. (that was a good week) 🙂

Sound good? Ok then. If you would like to play this game go to http://www.marvelheroes.com and download the client. After installing the client from there you will go through a game download. It’s lengthy (10GB) so, give yourself some time. Also, if you would like to play with me, look me up BigJD. Happy Gaming!
