    Re: Stacking Gustavo...

    i myself stopped at 3k jaws at my account bcz i know i cant afford to spend refills just to increase one lts power , i save refills for events only and i only get 300m-500m boss points .
    but if u are a player that normally scores 1.5B -3B boss points a month then gustav is some extra damage , i have 2 players on my empire that were already scoring that much points and now gustav will help them score more.
    like all lts are , good for someone and useless for someone else

      Re: Stacking Gustavo...

      You have to get those points early in the month as well. When top players are going for BR. You’ll only see the benefit for a few days a month.

      At least make the points form month A count for the duration of month B.

        Exactly the same idea crossed my mind, lol. To allow you to add boss points for one month, then to increase Gustavo's crit dmg for the FULL next month.
        It would be nice but I don't think the devs will make any changes now. Ppl will say "I would have hit harder ..."

        Regarding the current requirements for crit dmg, I do agree it is too much, I will probably never max his crit dmg. But some % will be there, so it is an add on to the Dragon Lord. And you can seat the both of them for more crit rate.

          Re: Stacking Gustavo...

          I don’t think people in this thread are considering just how powerful Gustavo is when you have the full benefit of his skills. At 3* he has 6% crit chance(equivalent to 3* dragon lord) AND 30% crit damage(better than 5* Vanquish -29%). It’s so difficult to max out his skills because he is obscenely powerful (arguably overpowered) when you do.

          If you look at him at 9* he has 16% crit chance (the next best in the game is Alpha at 14% and Dragon Lord at 12%) AND up to 98% crit damage. Vanquish boosts crit damage by less than half that at 9* - 43%.

          There’s no denying that Gustavo is a pay to win LT, but to argue that he’s no good because of the high requirement to max his skills is completely nonsensical.

            One note: Duke mentioned in the post about the event that the boss points are referring to the points for the empire activity board. These are the points that you see in the pop up when you collect on a boss, not the points that you see on the leaderboard in the boss fight (the ones used for boss thresholds). So, for a legend boss, these are capped around 50m points, which you can get if you do at least 150K points in damage for the leaderboard. It seems that people in this thread are mixing up the two different boss points (understandably so).

              With respect to the main discussion above, I agree with Metalstorm in that it should be difficult to max out his power due to how powerful he can be. At low levels, it's not unrealistic to max it out, but it gets progressively harder with higher stars.

              I'm a moderate spender and I was able to get 1.76B boss contribution points last month, which put me in the lower half of the top 100 on the boss hunter board. And I did that on less than a VIP worth of spending.

                Out of curiosity I decided to look into this and found that in order to max out Gustavo’s crit damage you need 1.875B boss points at 1* and then it increases in an almost perfectly linear fashion -r=0.9988- (yes I did actually graph it lol) until 9* which is a little over 7.367B.

                But if you just want to get an equivalent power level to Vanquish the requirements are much lower ranging from 1.875B at 1* to 3.233B at 9*
