Steem Monsters - A Mistake to Avoid

2년 전

Hey all,

I wanted to share a mistake I made so you can avoid it. In the recent past, I've been able to purchase cards including some on cooldown to combine into the card I'm leveling without any penalty. However, today I attempted to level a Mischevious Mermaid that I only had 1 copy of to start with. I bought myself 5 new Mischevious Mermaids including 1 that was on cooldown assuming it would act the same as when you merge one with an already leveled card. When I combined the cards I was disappointed to find my new level 3 Mischevious Mermaid was unplayable for 5 days. I was really counting on that card to get through my daily quest to win 5 Water Splinter games and now that feat is going to take me much longer.

I'm not sure if this was the intended way for the cards to work when combined or not but please take this in to account and avoid making the mistake I did. I tend to stick with what STEEM I have for buying cards so I simply can't spare the STEEM to buy enough cards to get a new card up to par for my quest. Looks like I'll be working my way through this one without the Mischevious Mermaid at all now.

If anybody understands how the card combination process is designed to interact with cards on cooldown feel free to interject here to add some clarity, otherwise try not to repeat my mistake!

Oh man, I feel for you. That totally sucks.

Yeah, in the market, there are the cooldown days remaining for certain cards. It's if they'Ve been used in battle and then put on the market, the cooldown is always a max of 7 days. I always ensure to purchase cards that don't have any cooldowns. While I've put cards with cooldowns on the market, I try to wait for them to cool down before putting them up, so that they sell faster.

Michievous Mermaid is a good one to have. Mine's only lvl 1, but she sure does come in handy a lot of the time.

Thanks for the comment. I made it through my quest luckily, it did take a while though. Hopefully my Mischievous Mermaid will be ready when I get another water splinter quest!


Hopefully ;) The 5 days will go by quickly enough, I'm sure.
