Amber- The Hardest Reagent Ever

AuthorMessage

I understand that these new spells are meant to be difficult to get but I believe that Kingsisle has gone over the top with the difficulty of the specific reagent Amber. The first part is that its rarity level of being dropped from a plant is about 5%-20%. Which is unfair to the people that massively garden the plants that drop Amber. Also, the transmute amber. We need: 5 Merle's Whiskers which are dropped only (No Auction),
5 Amber Dust which are only dropped (No Auction), 15 Sunstone, and 10 Golden Pearls. If you are looking at the 12 that we need that is 60 Merle's Whiskers, 60 Amber Dust, 180 Sunstone, and 120 Golden Pearls. I still only have 5 out of 50 sunstone to craft the spell in the first place!

I believe Kingsisle should make the drop rate at least 20% higher,
Make the Transmute Amber easier due to the quantity we need,
Make Amber a reagent that can be dropped!

Kingsisle,
Please consider this and the fact that most people are becoming very upset with the almost impossible crafting spells.

I would be satisfied if they just raised the drop rate of the amber dust and merle's whiskers.

i agree, i did mirror lake 15 times for 2 merle whiskers and 1 amber dust! :( Each starburst spider should drop one of each at least, i think. I am loyal wizard and know that it is attainable in time, i'm not feeling my efforts are paying off. Also, as a student of the art of Death, PLEASE make deadly ninja pigs a spell to use! i want it so badly! ty for your time nudge nudge lol

I wouldn't! Do you have a plan for getting 230 sunstone to craft a spell that arent even too good. The only one that is really worth it is Deer Knight. 230 suntone is equivalent to about 805,000 gold. If you would please take a slight look at the rest of the post you might see it my way that this is too hard! KingsIsle Entertainment has made a enormous mistake with the crafting spells and should definetly make all the other spells drops and a chance for being a prize in packs.

Crafting should be a challenge, but you have a point. This is extreme.

Lol this is to the extreme. I am not even going to bother transmuting since it is just as hard. Right now I have one amber from my king parsley. I am growing kp in large numbers in hopes of getting some of this elusive amber.

if you know of a boss that drops amber or a lot of wiskers and amber dust the least you could do is help us out by telling us who this boss is and where we can find him. btw if you do already have 15 and you were just getting our hopes up for nothing by lying then i would suspect you didnt get much sleep at all since amber came out.

Lies. Amber is not a boss drop. Its a gardened reagent. Nice try.

Thats probably amber dust which you need 5 of to craft one amber plus you need 5 merle whiskers sunstone and golden pearls.

Briskbreeze does have a fire boss that drops Merle's whisker, me and my friend got it. In tower of the helephant, there is a helephant boss, but I dont believe he drops it.
Also, I dont think the fire-wing dude and the spectral gorilla guy count. I think he means as in ONE enemy.

Ok
I have a Fire Wizard, Death Wizard, Life Wizard, Myth Wizard, Fire Wizard and Storm Wizard. All which are completed to the extent and maybe one just entering Avalon. I have become Legendary Crafter on two of my Wizards. I enjoy crafting but to craft a new Card for my Deck is like pulling teeth. Its just to hard and not worth my time, I prefer to start another wizard. I really think this should be rethought and made easier for people to craft its already hard enough to become a legendary crafter then to try and craft things that unless you garden or pray something is dropped or trying to transmute the impossible....really is just not work it this game is about having fun and for as much money as i have spent on this game I have earned at the very least one new card for my deck let alone having to go through all the rigamaroo..... :(

I have been trying to get amber since mid July. That's two full months of constant gardening, thousands in gold, more battles than I can count, and I have only five of the twelve I need. Oh, and I started out with one to begin with, so that's two per month! Let me rephrase that: Two per month and I an not a casual player.

As the others have said, this is ridiculous. I'm ready to give up.

What really annoys me is the fact that KI just made a pack with these spells.

I can see why, but for the people who can't afford it and are working towards it, it's almost like a slap to the face. But, oh well. This is America.

I agree, Amber reagent and Merle's whisker are ridiculous. I am currently finishing Azteca atm and would like to craft Catalan. I know I don't need it but I would love to have it. But the only problem is that I can't craft it. I am Legendary Artisan right now. Working on Transcendent Crafter badge. But the reagents needed for it are too hard to get. I am not giving up on crafting JUST YET because I like the gear I can craft. But I am saddened that I wont be able to get Catalan. I also have a problem with Agave Nectar I can't find it. Someone told me its on the ground in ALTO ALTO, but I am not so sure. But back to the Amber problem I think KI should just lower the amount of Amber and Sunstone to maybe 20 Sunstone and 5 Amber, just a thought. Please consider it KI. Thx for reading:)
