I've spent $100 trying to reach #1 and haven't, so it has to be worth over $100.
That might be a little to much.. 300 will definitely get you the legionaries and SM. Add about 200 on talents? 500$ seems like a good spot to land you on the top 10
The ones up there have invested upwards of $1000 and more. There are even players lower on the rankings that have invested this much and ended with Godly Heroes and talents for them, such as USofA. He is under my might but has the epitome of the dream team for Heroes.
I would pay my account + 3 packs of special edition skittles; Gaz wouldn't accept my first offer so I am adding another pack of skittles.
I've spent more than I would have liked to, and I am no where near complete on my Heroes. They only 3/5 level talents and 4/9 skills. 9k Gems to re-roll 2 Heroes and got back to the same level talent, so yeah.....The only 4/5 or 5/5 skills I got were useless on that particular Hero.
I'm at 60ish right now so yea good point. Also I stopped building up my "town" cause I dunno its just not my thing really so im in the 1000s from might rank. I wasn't trying to say I belong at arena rank 12 or anything I was just giving some perspective to the notion that $1000s of dollars are needed. I don't have a single lvl100 yet and once I do I imagine ill be able to stay top 25 a little easier.
