I'm starting to understand it more I think but "figure it out" is a bad approach for something like this.lol
While the table has always been a sore subject for some, I quite liked my WoD table and still spent time going back to get everyone geared up to 675. The Legion one was a brilliant advancement on the idea. Then came BfA's which... was functional but fairly useless. Now we're here, something that is unfathomable, completely unbalanced, poorly worded, and a genuine waste of everyone's time trying to figure it out.. especially those who aren't Night Fae.
Can't even get really started in the missions as Kyrian - even using a weak aura, all it does it show me that i have 0% chance of beating missions I greatly outlevel - with any combination of troops or companions...Where Night Fae can win at missions they *greatly* underlevel.It's completely broken and why it hasn't been hotfixed points to that the devs really don't care if covenants are balanced, or if people even play this entire sub-game they put all this work into.
I find that the Adventures Table doesn’t do much in terms of cost/reward . If you don’t farm anima like a mad man your table ends up costing all the passive generated anima from just doing random stuff ingame without actively targeting anima rewards and for a reward that ussually isn’t worth it. At best its a timegated exchange from anima to crafting mats. The play by play showing us every move is boring and honestly the ui doesn’t give us the info we need to win. You can have a high attack strength and still lose . It would be nice if we could have some user interaction between troops and player that basically is a turn based minigame like Final Fantasy where you have a number of actions to choose from and have some form of control to select the target. This combined with a auto attack feature that can be toggled during the fight could make it more fun. I stopped using the table like a couple of days ago because I couldn’t generate enough anima to see my pool increase to buy a new upgrade with the way I am playing .
