    I'll try and upload some later today.

    Cupid himself is a beast. Some AE attack, hits hard, teleports to ranged damagers, reflects magic damage from males, spawns minions, and has a trillion HP.

    ...and can be easily zerged with dragons. (You just need to have half a dozen tamers battleready, ergo Cupid lives in peace during US nights/mornings)

    Something more constructive: Does anybody have statistics about the camps? In case some people dont know yet, the chests have a chance to have hcoins (and even plats) in them. My rough guess is a 1/5 hcoin spawn chance. So far, there have been hcoins in both chests/containers or none at all.

    I hunted the camps for a few hours and came to the same conclusions that you've made. I placed a few rare types in my scavenger and in my restock agent just in case they spawn in these camps, but no luck yet.

    Telamon's description of these camps made me feel as if we could find something rare. 1-2 hcoin in a 1/5 chance is not something I get excited about, I'd rather go work the spawn.

    ive made like 100 camps...

    you can find hc 1-5 in both chest/barrel 1/5 chance
    sometimes 1 plat 1/15 chance
    low level weps [ the max i found was a simple vanq]
    lots of gems and pots
    less the 10 tmaps [low level 1/3]
    if you resell weps and gems you can gain 5k circa each camp plus the 4 mobs...

    Thanks for the detailed statistics. Up to 5 coins? Only got 1 per chest so far (2 per camp then).

    Hi,

    I found a Spell of strange love. Could anyone tell me how strong the army will be? I am a new player, a bard character,and I do not have that much experience so I am wondering if I should give it a try or it would be better to sell the scroll

    I am sorry if it is a stupid question, but I could not find the info anywhere.
    Thanks

    Hey man welcome! The scrolls are used to start the valentines day champion spawn outside of wrong, however that spawn is almost constantly active throughout the entire event period so I wouldn't recommend using it for that. You may be able to eek out some holiday coins in the early stages of the champion spawn and maybe even the later stages depending on your experience level. I don't think the scroll will sell for that much due to there being so many of them out there but no harm in listing it. Since your new, some vet will probably be more then happy to pay 10-20k for it.

    Thank you both for your answers ! :)

    In that case I will try to sell the scroll, and continue hunting easier mobs .

    Thanks!

    Go check it out tho! There are almost always people there doing the spawn. Worth the trip even if you don't dare try and work the spawn yourself.
