Question for spenders

Post by chavarlison on Sun Dec 09, 2012 7:26 am

I usually buy my iTunes credit at 50-75% rate on Craigslist, etc.
As a first time buyer, I can buy either a Super Duper, Sandstill or Bright-Out for $1 instead of the usual depending on the event.
Which means, theoretically, I can buy 99(max item stored) of them at $50 out of pocket.
Out of the three I can buy, the most useful item to get, in my opinion, is the Sandstill(almost guaranteed MVP), then the Super Dupers(almost guaranteed Floor Rush wins + early 2 epic suits + R6 item maybe) with the least useful being the Bright-Out(early epic finish + lots of R4s and a bunch of R5s if NR continues with their guaranteed R4 and up with Bright-Outs).

Is this the best use of my dollars or should I just buy Sushi's, Dorayakis(L) when they are a buck each?
I just want to get myself some epic gear and I can imagine myself reaching rank 15-30 with this purchase coupled with not wasting energy/BTs or am I just deluding myself?

Which event are you targeting? Sandstill works in tandem with BTs which means you probably want to buy dorayaki as well. That works well only during crackdown events. For primers, you need those for the raid bosses as well as bright out for primers. See where I am getting at? You can't just get one.

Primers: Require Bright-out + Dorayaki + Sandstill (And if you got your fill, you can go for No 1 LOL)
Crackdown: Require Sandstill + Dorayaki
Arena: Super Duper + Sushi

Although Arena would be tougher to crack even with premium items. The reason is because you are starting of with gears that are lower attributes. Rushing up the towers means you gonna be meeting plenty of top level players and that's gonna be tough.

Conclusion.... Its definitely gonna cost you more than $50

Chav, if you are gonna buy I would have to say the best deal would be super dupers. The arena events give sooooo much more equipment than the other events especially now that they introduced the apex tower (you could get multiple 5x gold items for multiple elements setting you up for life). Also, the first time buyer event never goes away. I have an account from September that's still eligible, so feel free to drive yourself up the ranks as high as you can go. No need to cave to the $ until you yourself are ready.

i'd say Super Dupers are best. If rank is what u r looking for you can get top 10 easy with arena event with a lot of super dupers. You may need to buy a little sushi but I ranked #130 with out using ANY money last arena event.
If you do decide on super duper Russell is right though if you go too fast you will get less rep and tougher opponent towards the top. So take your time and pace yourself. Slow and steady wins race Smile

Oh don't worry, this is not an impulse buy. Like Russel, I think I am fast approaching a time where if I don't rank higher, I won't improve anymore. I now have max fused silver gear for most elements, and in order to get better, I need the Gold ones next. Epic clans are now also within my reach so it's just a matter of time to get those needed elemental clans.

Your advice seems to me different from what I expected. I ranked Sandstill as the best use of the money since:
9 days * 24 hours / 3 hours = number of 3 BTs= 72 Full battle turns + BT's from leveling up=99 Sandstills.
I believe the Sandstill will push me way up if I play it every 3 BTs for automatic rank 1,2 or 3.

The Super Dupers don't need any help, so they may be the best to get.

Bright-Outs, unless going for gears(if they continue guaranteeing R4 and up) aren't needed. I just need friends who will trade according to Sarah's guide and I can get the epics. Although you are right, I won't be getting any max fused gold gears this way.

@Russel - I want to maximize the savings I am gonna get, which is one time buy of the three mentioned items at 99 max. I believe for the discount, they become worth it. NR shouldn't really be selling these for 4-5 bucks each. I am gonna think on your advice, I might include 30-40 Dory and Sushi along with the 99 whatever. But I was willing to shell out 50, not 100 or more if I follow your advice.

@Cordio - Will definitely not rush things for sure, but will think about doing this once I reach my plateau, when I am ranking the same range for a few events. Right now, I am still going up every event so I am still good but I want to think about what happens when I reach an impasse.

@Sarah - I don't need to be in the front of the pack, I am good with just hanging back so I'll definitely follow the great advice. With two guys advising the Super Dupers I guess we have a winner unless someone can convince me otherwise.

Thanks guys!

If you are going for the arena... Best gears there IMHO. Then get the super dupers. And maybe get about 5x10 sushis which also gives you about 10 cookies.

Don't use it at the start. There is very little points and weaker gears in the first 5 floors anyway, so use it later. Maybe even wait until Floor 11 opens up. At most, use only sushi's at the start. Good luck when you do spend.

For crackdown, is it worthwhile to invest in event's premium offering?

If you are going to do it, you need to use it on day one to be able to use it all event long. A new game costs $60, most apps cost $1. $3 to use for about 8-ish days isn't bad. more so if you will be lucky and get it fused up.

The $30 for 10 offerings I am leery. You get an R5 + 10 chances to get more. Seems too expensive for only a chance to get something good at the get go in my opinion. You get lucky yay! You crap out and you just flushed money down the toilet.

Its worth the first time buyer sale they put on it, but the first time buyer sale is better used on other things.

I don't see the first time buyer on the offering anymore. I look at it and it's at $3. Would be awesome if you can offer 10 times for $10 hehehe.

I agree with chavarlison about standstills being better then super doopers. Last floor event I had to get lucky to even beat the major boss with it but had no trouble using standstills to knock bosses out with no effort. I've never spent but what you say got me intereted though, buying the iTunes cheap & using them to basically get what you need half off isn't bad at all.

I will require everyone who will buy itunes cheap and then buy mobacoins to give me a percent of their savings, you know, as royalty payments for the idea hehehe.

I suggest should checkout the event prize gears and gears from Saizo or the thieves.
Esp. should only invest when the Event Prize gear is weapon rather than armor or tool. Stand Still is good in a way to get pts and mvp but would not strengthen your Ninja's Stats.
I would rate the Bright Out to be #1. Helps you to achieve epic suit in no time and can help others as well. Plus the nowadays minimum is 4-rare on offers when using BO.
Super Duper: is not always helpful. ie while in superduper mode 2/3 times you most likely to encounter green and minor thieves and force to waste on them, or force close of app, but u will miss out an encounter and waste of time which can cost u the floor rush.
If you still a virgin for the P.store. Best investment will be BrightOut!

So sayeth the hippo widely considered best. And to be fair, he has a pretty good track record. Maybe we should give BO's their shot?

When I asked this question I was only considering rank so I wanted the Sandstills. Now that hippo mentioned it, 99 silver gears plus quite a few golds and if I play it right a chance at them rainbow(or is it platinum?) gears. That is quite a haul.

Yes Hippo is right. Bright out is your best investment. I find sandstills a waste unless you need 4 or more large dory to get MVP. Supers are okay but you need to guess the right time to use them or they can be the biggest waste.

It also depends on which event you like the most. But I guess if you like arena the most and you want to be the best there, its where you should spend. A little less objectives in that sense... But I think we are all little like that... why else would we be playing NR with all the bugs and frustrations along the way?

lol!

Lol, I would still be too tempted to spend on the arenas for the sheer amount of items you get is far more than primers.
