1.  Geists cannot be used to kill undead  or play in the champion tower event

2. Any geist of any grade and stars can be used to upgrade a champion or geist XP

3. If you want to rank up the stars you can only use a geist of the same grade and stars that your champion or geist is to upgrade the stars on them

4. Playing the tower correctly by killing 1 undead every 5 levels can give you a lot of geists, use these wisely for they save endless amounts of clicking to rank up champions to level 4 and 5 stars so they can be used on your more powerfull champions to get them to 6 stars without as much clicking

Hadn't noticed you could use geists to upgrade other geists, neat.

This really limits their use tbh.

They don't sacrifice to that significant an XP boost. By far and away the best use is as part of the ranking up process. But limiting them to same grade is highly frustrating. Have plenty of geists hanging around with nothing they can currently be used to help with.

On top of that, I don't have green champs. So all green geists become next to useless. My Blue's are all rank 5 or more already, so the blues have little use either.

So perversely the most useful geists are the grey. At least they can be used to rank up the other grey's that you are training to ultimately promote your main blues / purples etc (for me at the moment a lot of grey rank 5's needed).

This means higher floor rewards, which are meant to be better are in fact significantly less useful (at least for any player who has played the champions content to any significant extent already.) 

Just another illogical and badly thought out piece of content. It's not a biggie but it's not like this is the only element of the tournament that makes little sense (like the fact it's supposed to encourage co-operative gameplay but the best reward is had from being selfish and ensuring you carpet bag the rewards from each 5 floors). It just becomes increasingly frustrating to see stupid badly thought out content.

Can't really think of any sensible reason why the geists were set up like this (it's not like that mechanic mirror the normal champs - quite the opposite in fact).

And yes, of course because it's not explained properly anywhere and it's not logical or consistent with other content, it's almost guaranteed to confuse virtually everyone initially (which makes it failed design IMO).

Sir Dan Saul Knight, I agree with your point of them having to be the same grade, however I normally end up with a glut of  grade 1 3 star geists and same with the grade 2 3 star geists, I normally have a few 3 star champions in grade 1 and 2 prepared for this to take those champs to 4 stars, upgrade them to get my 100 emeralds from each then use them on a good keeper 4 star champ of the higher grades

Sometimes I will even take those geists to 4 stars each using useless 1 star grade 1 and 2 champs to sacrifice on them to get my 100 emeralds then use those 4 star geists onto a 4 star grade 1 champion to get it to 5 stars maxed for emeralds, even enlighten if I want to get another 200 emeralds then use it on a high grade champ I want to keep to get that champ to maxed 6 stars

I never take a geist up to 5 stars of grade 1 or 2 as they become worthless in those grades at 5 stars because they can only be used on 5 star champs of the same grade thus taking that wothless grade 1 or 2 champ to 6 stars so is only good for sacrificing for xp really once you have gained the extra emeralds from them

My league, we play to get to floor 55 or 60 without using emeralds to unlock our champs because the higher floored geists just arn't really worth it to us for the amount of emeralds it costs to get up into the 70's or 80's, the highest i ever saw any league get personally on my server was to floor 98

Thats just my own way of how I make the most use of my geists, if there are handy tips there you see, your welcome to use them

They do add incentive for many to be active to the league tower event. Anything that provides people with a reason to log in often is an excellent Idea for the game :)

They provide zero incentive for me to be active in the league tower event.  I might be unique, though.
