Earning DEC and buying ORB's - Whats not to love.

I am still going down the road of splitting my DEC between ORB's and cashing out to powerup. Powerup to date is 30k DEC for 75 SP, a little left over for a few new cards. To bad for me on the buying card portion, it appears these cards have gone way WAY up recently. A flesh golem is over $0.30.. and I need a lot to move from level 6 to 8. Putting a serious hurt on my progress. I bought another ORB and opened it up Here is what I got..

Pack Total $3.934

  • Mermaid Healer $3.08
  • Enchanted Defender $0.089
  • Enchanted Defender $0.089
  • Eletric Eels $0.338
  • Eletric Eels $0.338

Great ORBs of fire

I think that is a great result. I needed all the cards I got - and who doesnt love pulling a mermaid healer. Can be a real asset when my Ruler of the Seas gets hit with reflect damage! This orb was pure profit, at of a cost of about 6.5 STEEM or $2.50 USD

I decided to follow that up with a few beta packs. Since so many cards have gone up 3x or more ( I am looking at you Green and Neutral!!) why not take a gamble and buy a few packs

Pack 1


Pack Total $0.86

  • Haunted Spirit $0.18
  • Centaur $0.44
  • Sabre Shark $0.05
  • Silvershield Knight $0.03
  • Peaceful Giant $0.16

Solid Meh

Yup - I needed three of the cards, but I will say losing more than 50% reminds me why I so often just buy the cards I need and not gamble on buying packs.

Pack 2


Pack Total $2.32

  • Zintar Mortaus $0.79
  • Haunted Spider $0.038
  • Spidenback Turtle $0.058
  • Animated Corps $0.024
  • Magi of the Forest $1.41

Profit - Epic card saves me!

Well, I can always use more summoners, especially for Death, my only level 5 summoner left. The three commons sucked - While I could level them up - I rarely use the Spineback Turtle to justify the 100 more cards I need to get it to level 8.

Magi of of the Forest - Whew - what a great hit! In the top 3 for value of EPIC beta cards. This makes my 3rd beta - since I am playing a level 3 Alpha Magi I snagged what too cheap prior to DEC.. If only I had gotten more pre DEC cards. I swear we will talk about the good ol days of Pre DEC and Post DEC... Pros and Cons.

I hoard all EPIC and Legendary cards, and even some Rare cards. I see no need to sell that this point - I will just see where this all goes down the road.

Thats it - Happy 4th of July

I got nothing else, I have 7000 DEC sitting on Steem-Engine ready to cash out to power up, way faster than I expected, but I am going to really focus on pushing for the full DEC earnings this 4 day weekend and see just how much I can earn!!

Stack on!! ~Senstless~

Hit me up anytime man, no worries. It's not like I'm playing multiple accounts, tracking it all in spreadsheets.

Hmmm seems an odd response lol

Yeah, trying to respond, give my kid a bath and make dinner. I forgot to type half of it. Long story short, I'm in deep, let me know how I can help. I might have some gold cards I can lease you for free to give you a boost.

Hmmm, 85%? Looks like I need to bump up my delegation a touch.

This may drive you nuts but the vote weight has nothing to do with how much you delegate. It is determined first by whether or not you have had a vote in the last 24 hours (if so, the shorter the time between votes the smaller the %), then the bot looks at how many votes in total it has given out today and adjusts the % according to that #. This ensures the everyone gets votes without the bot dropping below a certain voting % (I think 70%).

Check out this post for ALL the details.

Stay awesome!

Well crap. Looks like i am in taker category.. i need to change that!!

Nice pick up, So do you think it's worth the 2500 to buy a orb?

I do, I have done well, the promo card prices are really strong, the cards are useful. I split my DEC 50/50 right now between ORBS and converting to STEEM. After today, I have already pulled 100 steem out to power up.

I used to love running the 5 extra reward cards, and did for a long time. But my reward cards are all maxed to my summoners, and the slight increase in gold,epic,and legendary wasn't worth it anymore.

Both can be a good option depending on your level. I can earn about 2500 a day if I push it and play well.

I bought a basic legendary potion and I have had a little bit of luck and got a ruler of the seas and a sacred unicorn, so the potion seems to be working, cheers.
