I've noticed a problem with the daily task section, it's wanting me to train 10 warlocks, I don't have the ability to train warlocks at this time. The tasks should be something you at least have a chance to complete, instead of ones that are impossible.

These quests seem to be based upon the player's experience level and many players level-up too quickly before they find enough scrolls.
Many quests give hollow experience points that have not really been earned.
Reaching high levels too quick makes you an easy pvp target if all of your units are level 1. It also places you in impossible Tournament Tiers
Many have discovered that remaining at lower levels improves their chances of getting better rewards in many tournaments


Ask your league to help you find Runic Blade scrolls and keep posting trades on the Market

over all I like this, but I have to agree about the hamlet ones,  10K res and 300 gems


REALLLLY


the coiners are licking their chops over this...


I'd say  cut the res one down to 1K and gems one down to round 50 gems,


the thing is if you want to complete the weekly and montly ones you absolutely HAVE to get 4 per day, and you only get 5 per day, so on a day when you have 2 of 5 that are all but IMPOSSIBLE for 90% of the players to do it means they'll NEVER get the weekly or monthly prizes

just to give you an idea what I am talking about

I was on a hamlet, got hit by a lvl 119 player  who sent almost 600 GW dragons,  1100 chimera, over 40K dragons  and  almost 19K wyrven...

not sure what that adds up to power wise but I KNOW this it would have wiped out my ENTIRE DEF if I had sent every single def unit I had to it


might as well put a disclaimer on it saying  for coiners ONLY,  normal players need not try


and as one person said,  not even going to comment on the buy 50K gems one,   that is the ULTIMATE slap in the face to most playres

just as I suspected,  2 out of the last 3 days of the week I got the hamlet quests, which means I'm screwed on the weekly


and it has a domino effect,   can't get the 25 for the week so cant complete the weekly that TWO rewards lost and won't be able to get my monthly ones either


so I lose out on a total for FOUR of the better rewards   2 of the weekly ones and 2 of the monthly ones

this sooo like the old joke of tying a dollar bill to a thread and when ever someone bends over to pick it up it gets yanked away

I like the new Mar'eth Quests :D


will they be the same every week/daily or will we get new ones?

They should rotate throughout all 3 tiers of quests My Lord 

guess I'm just UNLUCKY then cause over the course of the week I got the hamlets one  3 times,  that's 6  "can't be dones"  in a week

matter of a fact  for the entire week Ihave only seen two sets, the hamlet one, and the BGs/ PVP one,  don't even know what the THIRD one has in it


add that to having completely MISSED the entire 1st day because by the time I got home from work and logged in it was already OVER

I guess I must just be a crybaby,  cause since my earlier post Ihave steady tried to get res from hamlets,  and so far gotten less and 500 and I need 10K


2 hrs straight,   all I did was lose a lot of troops

might as well make it 200 million

I know the powers that be don't care, but just thought I'd document this


up to 1K of 10K needed


used up ALL my nomads and barbarians


so lets see  almost 6 hrs  and I have 1/10th of what I need, and the gems one  FORGET THAT!!!


lets see that means it will only take me 60hrs to do

now some might say well you have to put a big enough force on it to hold it and collect

same guy as the other day hit me with what I'll estimate at around 100 million power


yeahhh riiiiiight

I suppose the guy that hit me could do it, put 100 million defense on it and get what he needs

just goes to show, this game it 110% set up so the coiners can stomp on the rest of us

Hi, I'm a level 36 player and the quest called for dwarfs to be made. I can't make dwarfs yet. Could the troops to be made reflect the arts already opened?
I agree. I can complete all the quests but training Warlocks, which I'm a couple of Lost Arts away from.  Doesn't make sense to have a quest we can't attempt.

You can get them at the Black Market as an option. Then the Quest will be finished.

You forgot to add the main (first) step, "buy sapphires".

10 warlocks cost APROX 1000 shapphires

how is anyone going to EARN 1000 in a single day?

we've already discussed how its almost IMPOSSIBLE to get then from hamlets as you'll get hit by coiners for PVP points


show of hands, how many NON coiners have been able to complete the quest to get gems?


I tried for a FULL DAY once to get my 3K gems,   end of the day I got 3, and not 3K,  not 3 hundred,  THREE GEMS!!!!

and lost a PILE of troops


but I came here  to address one of the first posts regarding this update


it USED to show us a timer letting us know WHEN our divine quests had reset/recharged...

NOW I have to constantly CHECK it to see if times up

PLEASE FIX THIS

They are scored differently. Not only PVP points but anything killed in raids also count. Power points are explained well in https://plarium.com/forum/en/stormfall-age-of-war/game-tutorials/35916_power-point-presentation-by-mehnslayer/?post=271292

I know how power points work and have know for over 2 years

but I do not know how I managed to be awarded 10049 power points without defeating ANY enemy units
All of my units have been in catacombs and I have not attacked anyone
I would need to kill 10,049 pikes (or equiv) to get those points and would have lost many units, but there are only 18 archers in my Infirmary  http://prntscr.com/fj1rad

Nobody else noticed this bug?

You have def in a beacon and what your troops kill when balur hits counts towards that quest. Bug or feature - i dont know. As for power points. Basic unit stats are used to calculate that ie archer has 20 points, pike has 40 etc.

Nice try, but we dont have a beacon - http://prntscr.com/fj85d2

and we dont have any units in the fortress either, our league marshal has been inactive for 149 days

This is a bug

I have not earned any points on this server. I am mostly dormant on dark plains server, but much more active on untamed

Power points are used for battlegrounds, but I only hit a few low levels and got 2370  http://prntscr.com/fj8afq

Same thing just happened to me

Logged into Farwols server to find a new quest week started but this quest was auto-completed

Not killed anything, not lost any units anywhere and no new battle reports

Mysterious lol




Edit: The entire quest is a phantom - after collecting the Fallen it did not appear in my Catacombs

as far as i can see balurs units defeated on the beacons (re: when balur strikes and gives us dark essence) are what completes this - but I have never checked to see if i actually received the reward - who can keep track of troops to see if they receive the one unit they are supposed to?


Now that you all have pointed these things out they will "fix" it and we will never get the quests completed on a regular basis - way to go!!!
