After much deliberation & with the advice of friends; I opted to replace one of my Attack Valor +6 with an Attack Chivalry +5.
I had done well so far on gems, I was full Valor and Conquest long before Valor + 4 were available. I’ve spent my fair share of $$ to acquire these beauties and again another fair share to level them.
Initially I wanted to take the massive uptick on stats with Defense or Health. The logic that stuck with me was – once you have all your Valor +6 you will wish for an Attack Chivalry and regret going Defense or Health. Plus it isn’t like I’m going to acquire more of these babies – I’m on a budget and share this budget with Gamer Husband (GH).
I ended up with +4.5% on attack stats. Minimal. But it is only +5. It’ll be the last one I upgrade to 6. And my friend was right. In the end you only get 4 Attack gems and it is far wiser to place your first Chivalry there – always think end game. @slaknoob
However I did manage to upgrade two more gems to 6, Defense and Health Valor. +15 to Health and Defense with a +4.5% increase on Attack is favorable when you consider I swapped a Valor +6 out. I ended up using that +6 to level a +4 – cause I hate wasting XP. I also had several +4 Valor and other gems/stones laying around and finished another Valor +6.
Which brings us to the second part of this post; how much XP is gained by level of gem or refining stone. This is not the XP needed to level each gem, just what you when you roll up a Refining Stone, Gem, or Valor into another gem.
There is more news to share; however until the videos are edited patience is required.
No hints … sorry (not).
