Activate Paragon Status and reduce the time between Raid attempts!

Activating Paragon Status gives you access to a wide range of powerful Bonuses.

From now on, Paragon Status will significantly reduce the time remaining until your next available Raid attempt!

Ruthlessly Raid your enemies’ Castles and bring swift justice to the wicked!

Don’t delay, my Lord! Activate Paragon Status now!

In agreement here. Say you have +4 raid reduction time. What exactly does that equate to time

Please let me clarify all questions that may have arise.

This change was implemented in order to preserve existing balance. For further explanation let me draw your attention to the fact that all raid attempts, including bonus attempts for Obelisk of Power, House of Unity and Paragon Status, are recovered in 24 hours. So initially you have 10 raid attempts per day and each of them is recovered once in 2 hours 24 minutes. Thus, the time of recovering raid attempts depends on your current maximum amount of raid attempts. So if your Paragon Status is activated, you can have 14 raids maximum and each attempt is recovered once in 1 hour 43 minutes.

To sum up, if you have the absolute maximum amount of raid attempts, which is 20, each raid is recovered once in 1 hour 12 minutes. Yes, you don't get all 4 bonus raid attempts at once, but now all of them are recovered much faster!

Thank you for the explanation. This is actually a nerf to paragon bonus then. It's become very difficult for me to stack up raid attempts and get stuff done all at once. It also becomes necessary to have paragon bonus active for a full 24 hour period to get all 4 extra raids. Am I incorrect?


Even with the paragon bonus and extra obelisk raids, the raid attempt recovery time seems slower to me. Could just be my imagination but hopefully it's working ok...and working when users aren't logged in too.

I'll clarify it for all you who don't speak Marketingese 

Paragon reduces your raid regeneration if you LEAVE IT ON. So use up all your paragon activators and when you run out BUY MORE. This is the new tactic. We want you to spend more money, this is the way we will get you to do it.

There is no raid time reduction for a 30 or 60 minute activation either.

Clever money grubbing scumbags but I'm on to you. No more cash from me.

If you would treat your paying customers with respect, we would invest in the game and everyone would be successful. But that's not the path you took.

Thanks.

This is exactly what was copy pasted into my support ticket. Nice support you got there.
