    I think you need to play more rng games :)

    Other posts have clearly stated the drop rate from gold keys is well below 2% as tracked by the 50 gold keys achievement. Another player has even statistically shown how to unlock all heroes through gold keys is truly impossible due to the rate.

    It does feel bad I’ll agree. I got a legendary off the first couple of free gold keys and figured the RNG wouldn’t be so bad. Still haven’t gotten another since, lol.

    That being said you can get a ton of work done just with common/rare heroes.

    Yes I understand is RNG, even the rates seem rigged in this game. I just want them to understand these rates are so ridiculous. They should implement somthing after 25 gold chests open you get a guarantee random lend. That way it profit the company and players will probably will spend more. I mean $50 isn't cheap for a random lend.. just saying

    I am awesome than I would have every legendary 5 times over. I have opened over 600 gold keys and have nearly have the legendaries. Most through treasure chests not gold keys. There are multiple ways to get legendaries at least which is a lot better compared to others.

    At least each gold key guarantees a hero which is impressive most don’t.

    @Jplarx I thank you for your input, but I am only talking about the chest rates from gold keys and yes I know you can get lend from random treasure chests. Not eveyone have or willing to spend like you (600+ gold keys) that's not a small amount of $ for a casual player. If they are actually listening to players they should fix the rates or implement a system which I suggested above.

    @iamawesome. Don’t assume I spent a lot I have been playing from launch. Over 80% of those were earned and not paid for. I don’t buy gold keys.  If I buy anything it is treasure chests.  Which yes I have spent money.  But any game requires players to spend to survive.  So don’t assume they plan to appease a f2p.   Could they be more generous.  Yes but guaranteeing a legendary would make the grind quick and many would burnt out quickly.  I think the pacing is decent.  My complaints are all in balance.

    @Jplarx I kinda figure your a veteran, since you claim you got nearly all heroes. Anyways mind telling me how you acquire 600+ gold keys in short time since you said you don't buy them with gems. I only played for 2 weeks. For the treasure chest part, to buy the whole pack you need at least 15k gem or more which runs $100 or more. You claim you only buy treasure chest. So, yea you don't spend a lot. You might be super rich, few hundred or thousand it's just loose change. Lol

    Yes, I know the company need players to spend to keep the game running. It a business at the end of the day and I understand that. So, fixing the rates isn't going to hurt their wallet it's actually the opposite and guaranteeing a lend hero on a X gold key use isn't going to slow down grind. They prob rigged the rates with like 90% dupes... just saying

    I spend about 150 a month. That is a lot but. Nothing out of my budget. I bought probably 30-40 gold keys over time. Which is less than a $100.

    You can get a gold key or more a day at higher levels, between world boss, alliance campaigns and siege. Then a couple bonus ones here and there from reward so on average I pop about 10-15 a week.

    Hope one day Wartide could afford a celebrity like Kate Upton, but still not expensive to play 😄😄

    It’s a flat rate system so each pull is same %. Just like flipping a coin. Doing it 100 times does not mean you will get 50 heads. In fact you can get 0 with a perfectly normal coin

    I think it’s worth mentioning that as slow as this forum moves, with such little discussion, it is interesting that this topic brings out so many opinions.

    I suppose? Not sure what that has to do with my observation though.

    That's what I did but after reading this thread I gotta agree that the easiest way to get legendary heros is from treasures if you save up the gems for them

    @awesomeplayer I feel your frustration mate.

    I have been playing actively for almost a month now and have only encounter one lend treaure chest. (I think my account is cursed with bad luck)
    Just praying they would do a ninja patch with this new update to change the rates!

    I absolutely agree that the drop rates can be frustrating but I’ve played for a month (hour a day, only spent $20 for the lifelong 100gem/day) and I don’t feel like it’s unfair. I’m getting close to unlocking a couple legendaries, and within a month a few others are coming up, and it’s going to be so damn awesome.

    I don’t doubt that, i’ve been on this game for 2.5 months now, and I only realized recently that it is better to save up the gems than to spend it on gold keys as I did. Big mistake really, but not late to correct! I reasonably thought gold keys if used enough would have a decent chance thou :(. Think the actual drop rate is somewhere at 1%

    I believe you are just on the bad side of the wheel. I got almost all my legendary heroes through gold chests (hidden treasure never included the one I want). I opened 2k total chests so far so I believe gold chests should be less than 1k. Given there could be dups I think the legendary drop rate should be much higher than your number.

    1% actually sounds about right.. if that.. still some people just get the luck.. I'm guessing I opened about 500-600 gold keys and only got sarpedon but I save up gems for treasures also. Only way I get anything anymore

    Wild guess aside, i would say drop rate of legendary heroes in this game is pretty decent compare to others, which is one of the biggest reasons why i kept playing since beta stage.
