What is the problem?
Lineage mythics need a buff. They are far too weak to deal with new towers and modern base layouts. I know that PG wants to make lineage progression less tedious and more rewarding with the new lineage system, but past tiers also need some love. Most of the past mythic dragons are useless and can only be used for gold farming. I find myself benching dragons when they reach breed-able level a lot more. As a low level player it is so boring and disappointing to get a new dragon that i can’t use.
How is it revelent?
And before you readers say “well this doesn’t affect anything else in the game, its just progression that you need to get through.” because you are wrong. With the new dragon missions, there are some that require expert dragons. The only expert dragon i have that is from Sapphire to Obsidian is Apophet. The only one. And that is only because i used them a lot in atlas gold farming. This limits my xp potion gain which in turn limits my levelling ability. I use XP potions a lot in the breeding event to quickly get a dragon to breed-able to use it as a parent. If i can’t XP potions because i don’t have a dragon at expert, this will affect my progress in the breeding event.
How can a buff be added?
I see two ways, one way has already been done in the past but the other is more affective.
The first is to buff individual spells, mainly by adding them to seasonal dragons and buffing them. This has been done on some past spells:
- Malefic Breath: Blue → White (i think on Abraxxas but idk)
- Scavenge: 2 rage → 1 rage on Galgrim
- Frostbite: 25% → 50% on Ethera
Three modifications can be made: a colour change, a rage cost change and a stat change. By individually buffing spells, previous dragons with those spells would all get buffed. This would include lineage mythics and legendaries. While this does provide a nice buff, individual dragons would still lack the power they need to be similar to current lineage mythics and seasonal legendaries.
The second is to buff the dragons by reworking them. This would require a lot of work, but it would still be less than what PG was previously doing if they brake it down into tiers. For lineage creation, they used to make 9 dragons. Now they are making 4, plus the 3 reworked mythics from a particular tier, which would be 7. 9 > 7. This method would provide the buff mythics need to be comparable to seasonal legendaries power and be affective when battling bases.
Another thing PG could do is add invokers to past tiers, to allow players to gain experience for flying them. (But this is more of a want than a need thing and doesn’t need to happen).
I also don’t legendaries need to be buffed as they aren’t used that often any way (in higher tiers) and this would require too much work. They would also get buffed anyway if the first method for buffing was used.
What Mythics should be buffed?
First of all, not all mythics need a buff. There are oddballs that are good the way they are. Mainly Hauheset. If players can fly this dragon then they can be used at any level. That being said, I think that all of the mythics between Garnet and Harbinger need to be buffed. The others that need to be buffed are: (Up to Empyrean)
These are the dragons that should be buffed to give new and progressing players the dragons they need to enjoy lineage tiers and progression to end game. That is all i am going to say, if you have any questions please ask them.
