Maximising Card Power: Shopping List for 25,030 Card Power
Let's Spend 133 HIVE! How much CARD POWER can I find?
In order to do this, the first step is to load up my account with lots of DEC!
Let's call it Step 1 (and Step 2, as I had to do this twice)
One of my favourite things to do is to go shopping. On the list this week was not a new pair of shoes, or perhaps a t-shirt - but rather, I was hoping to drop some HIVE on some SPLINTERLANDS assets. The rationale for this was that I was investing into myself. For many months now I've been sitting just over 40,000 power. This was really handy as it allowed me to play in Silver II without the need to rent. This was a really significant benefit for me as allowed me to pick up three chests each day and to receive 15 at the end of the season.
But - it made me wonder, what goal would I need to hit to move on in the game?
The answer was to look at the league limits. In looking at Silver I, I came to understand that I needed to target 70,000 Card Power.
But, there had to be some strategy in my purchases. In the past I purchased strategic cards - cards that were useful to my progress. This time around, I was more interested in cheap power in order to make my dollar stretch as close to the 70,000 power as possible. I did want to take a longer-term look though, and use some of the limits in GOLD to help me get some bang for my buck - figuring, I may well end up in GOLD soon.
Looking at the GOLD league summoner level limits, the take away for me was clear. In my card power push, it would be reasonable to work towards Commoner cards to Level 8, Rare cards to Level 6, Epic cards to Level 5 and Legendary cards to Level 3.
Strategy in a nutshell:
- Buy cheap power to get to 70,000 Card Power
- Once I hit Silver I, build a strategic deck which will allow me to access GOLD.
What you'll notice in my purchases below then, is that they are not all great cards, but they were useful enough and cheap!
In the end I was able to acquire:
25030 Card Power for 76612 DEC
25 Different Cards, 1229 cards combined.
I was happy with this outcome, it takes me to 66,000 Card Power and I will seek to get the remaining 4,000 card power in the next few days. I can look to buy a bit more strategically from now in order to prepare myself for the next step up. By spending in a thrifty manner I was able to make significant progress with my Card Power - and, by moving up a division to Silver I, I will gain an extra chest per day, and an extra three at the end of the season - that will certainly help to justify the investment!
Onwards to GOLD! The purchasing data is below, along with a snapshot of my current card/level.

Good Morning @peak-monsters;
The shopping list was bargain buying really - will definitely push forward to 70k power in the next few days, looking to those increased rewards.
I was using PeakMonsters to buy yesterday - but, I must have picked the wrong time to do it - kept getting glitches, and things wern't happening quickly etc. Then Splinterlands went down (obviously the reason for your site glitching) - and it turned into a bit of a mess to be honest - when Splinterlands came back up, finished shopping there. Did get 570 DEC back from MonsterMarket though, so that's something to continue the buying frenzy with!
