Finally got my Rising Star all-gold set

I just achieved something I have been working on for a while in Rising Star. There is a 'crafting' mission where you try to find parts to build a card. You need four parts for each and there are different levels of each part. The gold/number one parts are the rarest and it seems some are rarer than others. I had already done the drum and production cards and have been working on the guitar one for a while. You need a body, machine heads, pickups and strings. The gold strings are like hen's teeth. In the time I have been trying to get them I think I have had about ten of the top bodies.

Gold Cards

As far as gameplay goes this does not make a big difference as I do not do the guitar lesson missions that this would help with, but it is fun to collect rare things. There are only between seven and nine of each of these cards in existence so far.

I could craft some more guitars with what I have. I am interesting in increase my number of unique cards, so I can spare some duplicates. You can see what I have on NFTMart, so make me an offer if there is something you fancy.

Parts

I have run these five minute missions a lot. I may go back to production as those help me on the lessons, but there is less pressure now I have those top cards. Each of those missions cost me 1000 Starbits. I do have a card to do the missions quicker, but that needs STARPRO that I save for other things. You can pick your own path through the game and that keeps it interesting.

Missions

I have some other cards I would trade in the game. I have a spare of each of the L1 Trenton Lundy (out of print) and the L9 Steevc (me!) that I would be interested in trading for legendary cards I do not have.

Another recent milestone was passing 50,000 posts/comments. I have been quite prolific over the last five years.

50k

I am still playing Splinterlands too. I do the brawls in my guild, but I missed a place in the latest one. What we win on that can get us some special cards, but those are only for brawls and cannot be traded. I did win this one in my daily challenge today though. I think that is my most valuable one in a while. A lot of the old cards I might want are crazy prices now.

So not a bad day's gaming really.

Hive five!

These little wins brighten my day. I try to have various things on the boil anyway. Been trying some more Python coding around Hive this evening.

I don't think I have ever pulled any gold stuff when I have been doing crafting. I kind of gave up on it because I just kept crafting the same things over and over again. Congrats on this accomplishment!

As you can see it took a lot of missions. Jux says golds come up 1% of the time, but some are more frequent than that and others less. I know he doesn't like to reveal exact details, but I have to wonder if it's a deliberate bias. I just try to get more unique cards to keep me up the rankings as I have less total cards than others.

I will have to try and do some more of the crafting quests I guess. I need to build some money back up first so I can afford it. I was just getting ready to buy some more card packs too...

This nft marketplace is the new of the day for me dude. Thanks for turning me to this one as that might seem good for bulk sales and buys in rising star which otherwise is tedious!

Do you have a Raven card?i have it double and it is out of print for a trade?

NFTMart is great. It can be slow when you have lots of cards, but if you filter them it speeds up. It's useful to see what others have.

I do have a Raven already, but I expect others will be interested.
