Legendaries aren't that rare, I have more of those than 4d. And by that I mean, I have one 4d after playing for months. And it's the Jade Dragon, which is guaranteed to be 4d.

(I spent yet another mountain of tickets on a combo dot event today. The only 3ds I got were duplicates. Am honestly getting kind of tired of that.)

Hey folks, I've recently returned to Creature Quest and would be interested in joining the Kreegans (I used to run an Erathian guild back when I played last year so it might be considered treasonous to join the Kreegans).


Might and Magic fans always welcomed in HC Kreegans, I do have a spot available right now so do let me know if you want to join.


I'd definitely like to join. I'm in a random guild just now so I'll need to leave that first, will do that tonight.

I gotta ask: where do you folks farm sigils?
Haven't been able to evolve much lately, because I'm always out of those (but have mountains of the other items). And running quests in that level range is not only bad for experience and other loot, but tends to only drop one or two sigils on a good day.

Is there a more effective way to get them?

I think you mean ankhs or enchanting dusts here, he asked for sigils, the low tier evolving material.

Best is to do the corresponding maps on knight/lord difficulty (Shadows in the sand for yellow/dark, Scorched earth for red/green, Ivory excavation for blue/white).

Thanks..
Yeah, the higher difficulties don't seem to drop sigils. They drop runestones instead (and I already have hundreds of those, plus a vast pile of ankhs too).

I've been farming those exact quests at lord for the sigils, but as I said, usually end up finding no more than one per color per 100% completion (sometimes none), unless the merchant happens to have them. And a single evolution requires eight of those, not to mention the dozens that are needed for the shrine upgrades.

But if that's the best option, then I guess that's what I have to keep doing. The xp and other loot really sucks at that tier, when you're used to running minimum of King, though.

There's no need to make the quest 100% at such low difficulty, just do the fights that reveal nodes and the couple that guarantees sigils drop. QQ is rather handy here, but I think you need VIP3 to unlock more per day.

I know a marketplace where you could diamond buy/trade items is a long requested feature but it doesn't seem this will be implemented soon...

I'm at VIP3, but a long way from VIP4 and free daily coins. The coins are so dang expensive (25 diamonds for five) that I prefer to just explore manually.

I've been farming Scorched Earth lately, which needs the four map pieces plus the barrel for the merchant (which I definitely want to check in case he happens to have sigils). Getting those doesn't leave much of the map uncovered, might as well go for 100% at that point.

Also, not sure what you mean by guaranteed drops. The Troglodyte boss usually drops a red sigil (sometimes a red runestone), but there's no guarantees for green as far as I've seen. I've ended quite a few quests with 0 green and 0 red sigils, even at that tier.

Yeah Scorched earth is a bit of a pain because of those maps you need... But the others you can clear faster. BTW Lady of the Lake is quite worth it for QBCs, usually gives around 20 at highest price (along other kingdom mats or epic essences, more rarely colored idols).

Yes, you get a 50% chance to get the color you need, but the drop is consistent is what I meant. At least on Knight, Lord can give you the runestones instead but by quick questing I've noticed the sigils drop is a bit superior when it's there.

Yeah, sorry, I was thinking about runestones. For sigils Lord is what gives the most in my experience. I found grand wish gave more sigils than the dual color maps though.

I sent a request to join HC Kreegans earlier in the week, my username is the same as my forum name on here.

I'm currently having similar problems to the past few posts - trying to level up and evolve a lot of my smaller creatures to properly kit out dungeons, but quickly running out of evolution materials. It's a real pain.

Really? Never paid much attention as I'm mostly focused on the Ankhs when I do these, good to know.

My bad, I misread your username earlier, you're in now, welcome to the guild.
Make Kreegans proud.

Apple just revised its rules for devs on its App Store. Devs must know reveal the odds for lootboxes for game apps. Hopefully this affects CW and they reveal the diamond summon odds!

Tried couple of those, two sigils from the first run but then zero from the next. Doesn't seem noticeably better, though it's hard to tell for sure from two completions.

This is what my evolution attempts usually look like:


Everything else is plentiful, except for sigils. Those simply don't seem to drop at all from tiers higher than Lord. Dunno if it's always been like that, I haven't played for as long as most here.

(Fragments don't drop at higher levels either, but can occasionally be got from recycling and token chests. So those aren't as bad.)

Only two on Lord? That seems strange.

Hey Oliver long time no see.
I did four pulls this event and got four legendaries including a 4d green giant and a 4d blue dragon (two pulls were blank, two pulls were good).

Zero sigils on most runs. Just tested it - five completions of Grand Wish: Holiday (green) on Lord, two sigils in total. Merchants and bosses mostly sell/drop runestones at that difficulty.

I'd definitely recommend dual-color maps instead, for anyone who's trying to farm sigils. On Knight, since Lord and above have the same problem: runestones instead of sigils. Whereas on Knight you can occasionally buy them, and also can find them lying around the map.

Still generally no more than one or two sigil per map. Merchants mostly stock worthless stuff such as gems (am already drowning in those). So getting enough for even one full evolution (each Large creature requires 12 sigils to evolve) requires quite a few runs.

I would love to know the odds. Did 2 pulls myself on the Santa Claws event, first one was fine with 2 legendaries, 1 of which had 4 dots. Second pull literally had no creature with more than 2 dots, or 3 stars. It was a bit of a kick in the teeth to say the least.

From what other players are saying, it’s 1 legendary every 20 diamond summon or 2 multisummons on average. And 1 4dot legendary every 200 diamond summons or 20 multisummons, so you actually got good odds in your pull.

During the holiday heist event, I farmed a lot of the holiday boxes, had around 40 idols. Got 2 (weak 3 dot) legendaries from total and around 4 epics. I was very disappointed but got a 4dot walrus in one of my last idol summons which made me happy. Devs know to give you just enough to make you keep playing. That’s the problem with lootboxes, they make it into an addiction. And once in a (very rare) while you get something good, so you keep playing instead of quitting game. It worked on me. Man, I hate lootboxes.
