Acquiring Common Cards

Postby MasN » Mon Oct 09, 2017 3:31 pm

This is a question that I feel there is an answer to, but I'm too dumb to find it.
The exploration mode is a great way for me to get any specific uncommon or elite card I want, and the achievements let me get the legendary I want.
But how do I get a specific common card?

There's no way to get specific commons. Perhaps the trader could help. I'm not sure and can't check right now, but i think it allows you to trade excess cards and tokens for commons (and uncommon + rare), and on top of that it will grant you cards you don't have 4 copies of first.
Regular drops from battles will also attempt to give you cards you don't have 4 copies of first.

Another question. What exactly does shield protect against?

I tried shooting my shielded Spark with a Shielded Ruby Xyloxi. The spark died, the Ruby survived, and no shields were used.

I had a flagship with 16 shields, but it just got killed by an antimatter bomb.

Shields protect against non-damage effects such as disable. Destruction is a damage effect.

IQRL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL this is a driver or hardware problem - an interrupt request problem often the result of new hardware conflicting with other hardware, or newly installed/updated hardware drivers causing problems. If it happens frequently, one way to diagnose the problem is disconnect hardware one by one and see when it stops happening. If you're not too familiar with computers, i'd suggest getting a professional to look at this if it happens often.

Hi Masn (and Greywing),

I've found a convenient way to get a whole heap of Merc points (which you can then use to buy commons etc) is to battle the mercenaries; make sure to choose random Merc at level 150 - I'm concentrating on the :mt: at present, but I started off on the dice. Remember, random, not custom.

There are also a fair few cards to unlock in tactical mode as well.

Phew....

after 4 years or so... I finally returned, lol. (moved states and bunch of RL issues, not to mention my PC died and I lost files and forgot about this game until I found a screenshot I made about the Flagships in my laptop....)

Anyways, I found HD3 is out since last year. (and everything starts over in HD3 as level 1)

Started playing now and found quite a lot changed since HDX.

You can't really customize "customize" Flagships, as most are purely fixed values (to prevent OP Flagship I guess)
Miss my OP OP Flagships I made tho.

The other thing is... do you no longer get cards from doing Randoms in BATTLE like in HDX? I tried some, but I just reached level 7, so I wasn't sure if I was too low level to get reward from BATTLE.

Or is Card only obtainable from Exploration (is there a limit?), and Trader? (which the person above said to farm MERCs for Points to Trade from Trader)

Regular battles should award cards fairly often.
Exploration has guaranteed rewards at times, so you can start with the easiest levels there, then do some single duels.
Trader allows you to get rid of cards you have more than 4 copies of (or boosts/mercs you don't want), and get other cards (or mercs or combat boosts) in return.

Just tried the Merc Farming strat

And it works really good, in fact, it farms faster than back in HDX with OP Flagships...

All you had to do is make a 40 card deck filled with 0 cost ships (and some ships that deals damage to ship/base/lower def), energy structures and ship/base damage action cards.

Pretty much wins in 3~6 rounds every time, really fast.

And the reward is almost always 50~200 Merc Points. (got like 3000+ in 1 hour of farm)

With this, I can easily get a lot of Merc Points to trade for Cards and get all the cards in the game beside Legendary (which is easily obtained from doing Achievements)

Which I am doing Achievements while Farming by switching the Merc's race and my majority race in Deck. (pretty much unlocks Flagship's parts)
