Idle Heroes Definitive Guide to the events during Chinese New Year

Overview of the Event currency.

The event which is newly released has a number of new currencies that have been introduced. Every one of these has a different method of getting them. Sometimes these methods overlap. It is a confusing task to keep it all remembered straight and is quite a daunting task. This guide will help the players to keep all of these in track and provide all the information in one single place.

There are primarily four different types of event currencies; these are:

Blessing bags: There is a F2P currency. You can get these by primarily spending some gems.

Confession roses are primarily obtained by spending some real world money. These are a light P2P type of currency.

Chinese Knots are primarily obtained by completing an event called the Heroic summon event. These are a form of event currency.

Fu is a type of event + p2p currency. They can be got primarily by also completing the event known as the Heroic summon event. But if you are aiming to get the top reward that is the Kiss of a ghost, an artefact, then you should be ready to spend some real world money.

Chinese New Year event packages and gem boxes {Chests}

The chests for the Chinese New Year event are the replacement to the standard gem boxes that are usually in the game. Each purchase will entitle you to an additional reward as well as one of the four currencies of the event.

Going on value, I would say,

999 chest > 388 chests > 2666 chest > 666 chest > 1888 chest.

Recommendation & Notes

388

20  Blessing Bags

5  Heroic Scrolls

You should Definitely Buy!

The HS value is more than enough to make this purchase worthwhile. Even considering a scenario without the bags, this is 77.6 gems/HS which is very much cheaper than the usual 125  gems/HS.

666

3

40  Blessing Bags

5  Super Coins

Probably Buy!

I am personally not a big fan of the super coins. But, 133.2  gems/coin is a way better deal than the usual 250  gems/coin. If you are aiming for the Aspen at the top of the  blessing bag rewards, that will result in making this particular one an quite easy buy.

999

2

499  Confession Roses

5  Prophet Orbs

Definitely Buy!

199.8  gems/orb is an awesome value against the standard value of 450  gems/ orb.  when Roses are a P2P currency, it is a proverbial, cherry on top. This and the CNY package costing 5 dollars might probably be enough to obtain the Whithered Armor. This would depend on the Auto-Loot drop luck.

1888

1

1000  Chinese Knots

Skerei Skin

Probably Skip!

If you have completed the Heroic Summon Event enough to be able to get the  Fu needed for getting the top rewards you will most probably have enough of the   Knots to make those buys already. That results in this being like 10 Elite shards, 3/5ths of a Flame strike, or 5  Heroic Summon Scrolls. This is a Pretty bad value. If you require the skin for Skerei, then it might probably be worth it.

2666

1

50  Fu

 Xia

Probably Buy!

Xia is a hero of the top tier, getting a copy for 2.6k  gems is definitely not a bad deal.  Fu is a particularly odd currency . This is because though it is very difficult to get, the top rewards will usually be out of reach for most of the people who play the game. If you do complete the Heroic summon event at least one time, then this would probably be worth it for the Aida skin. The Worst case scenario would be the 50  Fu is worth 2.7  prophet orbs.

 

For people playing in the P2P version of the Idle heroes game, there are two types of different event packages. One is geared towards the light spenders whereas the other is usually for the heavy spenders in the game, who are typically referred to as whales by the community.

There are two specific Chinese new year packages for the spenders who are considered as light value spenders:

  • A 5 dollar package {called the True Love treasure}: This will enable the player to get 14 heroic scrolls, a number of prophet orbs, 2019 numbers of gems and also 999 roses. The total value of all these, considering that you ignore the roses would be 4669 number of gems which would add up to 933.8 gems per dollar. This is a way better deal than the usual monthly senior privilege card {which is usually considered the best in recurring values / dollar} package which gives you only about 800 gems for every dollar. This package also increases the likelihood that you will get the withered armour artefact, this is considered as a top tier artefact. If you plan to spend any money on this particular event, then this is the best package that you can lay your hands on.
  • The 30 dollar package: known as the prosperity card, this is also a good package. This gives you Variable gold {1.32m gold per level} and 13320 number of gems and also 60 feathers {Also note that the feathers do not yet have any set value. But by our calculations, a good estimate would be about a 100 to 150 gems per feather}. This would all add up to about 644 to 744 gems per dollar. or a total of 19320 to 22320 gems. This would be a bad deal when compared with the monthly senior privilege card (gives you 800 gems per dollar), but this pack will be far better than the monthly privilege card (gives you 560 gems per dollar). This particular package will not give the player any event currency. SO, the need to buy this will not be substantiated unless the player wants to purchase the feather or the gem at a decent price.

 

The” value” standard packages are mainly for the players with tons of money in their pockets and are willing to spend them on the game. I recommend people not to buy this particular one unless and until you need the currency of the event to get a premium reward. My main argument is that the gem per dollar ratio of this pack is horrible. Every one of these packs can be bought for a maximum number of 5 times.

Blessing Bags.

This is a very straight forward currency in the game of idle heroes. The number of ways to get this currency is also limited. Also, it has no interlinks or interactions with any of the other currencies in the event.

You will need 1600 points if you want to reach the top reward {which is a copy of Aspen}. This will require you to have at least 1333 bags. Every time that you will give a bag, you have about a 20% likelihood that you will receive 2 points instead of the usual 1.

You will be able to get an assured 920 bags (where 140 are free, and the rest 780 will be for gems). This means that you will need to get only about 420 bags from the auto loot drops in the time of 2 weeks which is not a big deal. It is my recommendation that you purchase the gem box with the 388 gems (x3) immediately and then relax till the last day in order to see how many more bags you will probably need to reach the top tier reward for this particular event. You can use the 666 box of gems as well as some direct purchases to make the balance.

If you are thinking about which hero to give which bag to, then this tabled comparison will help you. This contains the comparison of giving th e700 bags to a particular hero.

If you are considering a situation like Xia versus Emily, then the outcome would depend on what you value more, 3.5 number of Prophet orbs or the 1 more elite hero summon. Now, the prophet orbs have a considerably lower individual rate of return than the one elite summon. But, helping to complete the prophet orb events is also a very valuable thing. Lutz will be giving you more numbers of pure fodder, but this means that you will miss out on artifacts.

For new players, especially ones that will require more heroes as well as artifacts, my suggestion would be Emily > Xia > Lutz.

For the new players who require artifacts but they already have a good and solid roster, then I would say, Emily = Xia > Lutz.

For the players who have been playing the game for a long time now, {ones who already have a lot of artifacts} I would say that all of the three options are well balanced. You will get help on the prophet orbs from most of the fodders from Lutz. Also, the prophet orb from Xia, there is a chance at getting a usable copy of a hero from Emily.

If you want better details on who you should give bags to , then I recommend that you read this post here.

 

Confession Roses.

This is also another straight forward currency in the game. Confession roses are mainly obtained by spending some money. They can also be got by auto loot drops as well. This again has no interactions with any of the other currencies of the event.

The maximum number of confession roses that you can get is capped at 998, this if for the gem purchases. If you are aiming at getting the top reward {which is the withered armour}, then you will probably have to spend another 5 dollars on the Chinese New Year packages, this is unless you get very luck with the auto drops. The CNY event typically runs for two weeks and based on my auto loot drop rates [current one]. It would be a calculation that you can probably get the Cthugha copy; this is without spending any money.

Recommendation & Notes

99

N/A

1  Elite Shard

A dump for spare roses

299

N/A

1  Super Coin

Seems like a waste. I think I’d rather have 3 Elite shards

599

1

10  Heroic Scrolls

Buy this if you can’t get anything higher

999

1

 Queen Skin

I would personally ask you to skip this one. It would be better if you get 10 elite shards in place of this.

1999

1

50  Elite Shards

You can Buy this one if you are not able to get anything higher.

2999

1

 Cthugha, Cthugha Skin, 10 Feathers

You may Buy this one if you plan on building a Cthugha. Otherwise, do skip

3999

1

 Whithered Armor, 20 Feathers

Whithered Armor, as discussed earlier is a top tier artifact. This has the Top priority considering that you are able to get the roses.

 

Chinese Knots + Fu.

The Fu and the Chinese knots are connected. Both in the method that you obtain these and also with what all you are able to buy with these. These are mainly got from finishing the event called the Heroic summon. The fu is supplemented from buying the value packs, and the knots are supplemented by the auto loop drops in the game.

You will not be able to obtain the Kiss of Ghost {a top tier artefact} unless and until you are going to spend at least 100 dollars on the package with the top value. But, you will be able to get the bonus Aida copy as a F2P by spending at least 1400 numbers of the heroic scrolls. Also, you can obtain the Aida skin as a F2P by spending a minimum of 400 number of heroic scrolls.

The Fu Is the limiting resource here. The knots in the game seem to be like a way to stop players from getting their hands on a bonus Aida copy {for the whales}. This can be substantiated by the act that if you are going to complete the event enough number of times to be able to get the Fu than you need to get any of the rewards at the top, then you will have enough number of the knots to buy whatever you want. If you are going to be spending 500 dollars on getting about 200 of the Fu, then you can be able to get the Kiss of Ghost easily, but at the same time, you will not be able to get an Aida copy because you will have run out of knots.

If you are able to get a number of 50 Fu that is about 10 Fu per 100 scrolls, and a number of 1200 of knots {you get rewards of 250, then 200, then 200, then 250 then 300 and then it will loop back to the starting value} for every 500 scrolls completion. Keep in mind that you will be able to get another 50 number of Fu from the top gem box of the Chinese New Year.

1

 Flame strike

You may Buy if you cannot get anything higher than this. Unless and untill you can finish the event more than 3 times this would be the best way to use the  knots. At the worst case scenario, this is a 5* fodder, which is considered to be better than either of the other two “dump” options.

1 number of  Prophet Orb

This is another dump for the spare  Fu you have.

Aida Skin

This is the best way to spend the  Fu. Especially if you are able to complete the event only 1-2 times

Also, another best way to use  Fu if you are able to complete the event for at least 3 to 4 times

 Kiss of Ghost, 30 number of Feathers

This is for the Whales only

 

DR;TL: So what Should I as a player buy for the Chinese New Year event?

  • Firstly, ensure that you are collecting the free 10 blessing bags that are available every day. These free blessing bags will be available in your mail box.
  • You may purchase 2 x the 999 gem box as well as 3 x 388 gem boxes if you have the required gems.
  • You may also purchase the gem box with 2666 gems. This is mainly If you are interested in building a Xia and you have the extra gems to be spared.
  • If you do not want to spend too much money, that is if you are a spender who spends light, then consider buying the 5 dollar Chinese New Year package, this is called as the true love treasure.
  • If you are a spender who is considered as a moderate spender, then you may be interested in purchasing the 30-dollar Chinese New Year package, this is also inclusive of some gold, gems as well as some feathers and is called the Prosperity Card.
  • Do complete the event called the heroic summon event if you so desire. Also, while doing the event, please remember the following points:
  1. Aida is hard to build a hero, mainly because she is considered as a light hero.
  2. At first glance, the hero Aida seems to be immensely powerful.
  3. Also, the rewards for the Chinese New Year events are much higher than the rewards for the usual heroic summon events. If by any chance you have been saving up on scrolls, now might be the best time to put them to good use.
  • On the last day of the Chinese New Year event, do not forget to see how close you are to the top tier rewards. See hoe near you are to each of the rewards in the top tier.
  • For the blessing bags, it may be a good idea to buy 3 x 666 gem box. And then also buy the individual blessing bags for a price of just 10 gems (per blessing bag). This is so that you can try to get the complete 1600 threshold score in the game. It is important to keep remembering the fact that this move might cost you, the player, about six thousand to about eight thousand gems.
  • When it comes to the Confession roses, if you are at a tally that is lesser than the 3999 tallies, then you might want to consider the option of spending some more real world money on the game so that you can get the top tier artefact that is known as the Withered armour.
  • If you are thinking about the Chinese knots and the Fu, then it might be a swell idea to buy whatever that you can. Also, keep in mind that you eill also get an extra 1000 number of Chinese knots and also an extra 50 number of Fu from the Chinese New Year gem boxes.
