    Very curious about these tokens, how many you are given / costs

    Soft cap is the limit to kill XP we're placing on missions after a certain amount of walker kills. In short, the change that was supposed to be in update 1.9.

    Everyone’s got two wolves inside them. One is anger, envy, pride. The other…truth, kindness. Every day they tear each other apart.
    But it’s not the better wolf that wins. It’s the one you feed.

    Obviously taking someone all the way to top level legendary will not be easy. But the upgrade path is there :)

    And upon using tokens to upgrade the survivor class, will they upgraded instantly or will there be upgrade time like usual?

    @eetu you hit the nail on the head. If lucks against you and pulling a leg is like finding a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. Now all the time and radios you spend looking for a leg won't be for not because it will be going to upgrade the leg hunter you want. And imo and I'm sure most everyone else will agree that a surviver you train yourself will be 100000 times more awsome than pulling one . Don't get me wrong pulling a good leg will still be exciting.

    By the way it reads with this update, traits only unlock by tokens instead of upgrading by XP now? Or does the traits still unlock when you upgrade via XP?

    @timflo83x
    Tokens are needed to upgrade rarity not traits. Rest stays pretty the same. You will still unlock traits by XP ect

  • shabbashabba Member Posts: 452
    will there be more then 5 traits? or do we now know that every excisting legendary will get the new trait as 5th?
    will the order still be good better or will you be able to upgrade traits as we like?

    Lets say 5 traits, i upgrade luck to 5, dodge to 4, marksman to 3, iron skin to 2 and the new one to 1?
    Also guessing the that every lvl = 5%
    or will the order decide the power?

    Making money ≠ rip off. We will see what this update will lead to. I'm not trying to bitch around, all I say is that I will wait and see how this new feature works before I praise NG into heaven.

    Thanks. After rereading it, I see it now. Guess working and perusing the boards don't always equal comprehensive reading! (doh!)

    Although it does say unlock - "Use Class Tokens to unlock and upgrade the traits of your Survivors."

    Better to get some tokens instead of few thousands of XP. Ability to keep outdated survivors sounds cool. I don't see big money jump here... So far ;)

    @CanadianMike I pulled two leg in the last week one last nite on a single radio call I don't think they nerfed the % and if anything this will help f2p not hurt it may take more time to get a survivor upgraded if you don't buy gold or gas boost but the opportunity is there all you gotta do is play

    Game can't evolve without making profit. This game is created to making money. Hope IAP wil keep reasonable prices. We all know recently bundles are just poor...
    Finger crossed to see more value one..

    I'm glad they finally got the cap on the farming stuff to stop the exploiters...although I feel bad for the people who farm legitimately...wish they could have found another way to detect and root out the exploiters but I know that is difficult sometimes.

    Good work on the survivor stuff...sounds like this is something that benefits the entire community unless I'm missing something...I personally didn't need it as much but it seems like this will benefit more of the people who have had bad luck with radio calls (cough cough @masmith93 ) so that is good news!!

    Council update I can take or I could have waited...just an excuse for me to spend more money which I would probably do anyways :)

    The real question is, will the 5th trait be gold?

    Will the tokens we get vary between Survivor levels and Rarity? Like if we pull a common level 6 Survivor, will we get less tokens or the same as a level 16 common Survivor?

    Are the tokens only for each Survivor type? I don't know if this has been asked. Will we be getting Hunter tokens, shooter tokens etc?

    @Ovidmikel

    Yeah that is awesome to hear buddy congrats! And for sure that was some good ESP that you didn't retire that warrior...can't beat those traits!!

    I'm more excited for this update for others like you than myself :)
