NFT - Arkemis the Bear: A Badge of Honour for Buying NFTs during the Bear Markets
We have just Two more days and 14 hours to acquire the Winterfest End of Year Promo card NFT announced by Splinterlands Play to earn game in December. The card, Arkemis the bear is gifted to players who purchase any booster packs in the Splinterlands shop since Tuesday, Nov. 29th, 2022.
Arkemis the Bear: A Badge of Honour for Building during the Bear Markets
The Holy Bible in the 10th verse of the 24th chapter of Proverbs states that "if you faint in the days of adversity, your strength is small". It was hard to reckon with that scripture until I came to reckon that hard and difficult times are a part of life cycle that must always come intermittently to keep us in shape and trim our excesses.
Imagine that we all were growing in size at a constant rate proportional to our age and never got sick, never shrunk and never lost weight? It would have been a tragic thing as we won't even be able to pass through the doors of our houses. Some of those things happen to keep us in shape.
While I was new to crypto, I hated bears until I started investing. This happened because I had been FOMOing into assets at the peaks, hence, lose the value when the bear days set in. However, we cannot do without the bear days. The bear season is the best time to buy in. It's a time to allow for new investors to buy in huge and strong to provide liquidity for another cycle.
Arkemis is a Common rarity, Neutral card added to the game and the players receive a level 1 copy of the card for EACH booster pack purchased in the Splinterlands shop. That includes all Chaos Legion, Riftwatchers, and Tower Defense Nightmare pack purchases and bonus packs count as well.
Arkemis is a neutral card which can be played with any Summoner and in many different situations and rullsets. It is added to the Splinterlands card deck for battles and is characterized with huge stats. Arkemis is a monstrous 12 Mana, with a strong Melee attack (3 to 4) and a significant amount of health. The promo card has Four Special abilities according to its lore is gained through years of weathering the (crypto) winter that really make him powerful. From level 1 to 10, the make up of Arkemis looks great even for novice battles.
At level 1 he Protects himself and all other friendly characters with additional armor, and as he levels up he gets the extremely rare Halving ability, which halves the attack of his targets when he hits them. He also gains the ability to block high powered attacks via the Forcefield ability and finally at max level he begins to get Enraged when he isn't at max health, which increases his Melee attack damage and Speed! source
How many Arkemis the Bear do you own and how many of those were earned?
The count of Arkemis received from @steemmonsters is dependent on the number of booster card packs purchased over the period of the promo. However, it can still be bought in the splinterlands card markets for around $0.17 each.
I've been able to receive a number of Arkemis the bear cards and also purchased some so I can level them up for better performances. So far, I have a count of 7 Arkemis the bear, 5 of which is received as an airdrop.
With just 2 more days to go, there is the possibility of receiving some more agility card NFT as I will purchase more Chaos Legion packs.
I Bought 1 Chaos Legion Packs & Opened 2 packs Today
I am so happy to be able to purchase 1 more Chaos legion card pack this morning using DEC. I also opened 2 of the packs. Below is the screenshot of the cards revealed.
Among the cards are 1 epic legendary card, 1 rare card and 1 gold foil card. The revealed cards look great with awesome abilities - all with melee and ranged attack.
The bear market is not the end of crypto. It's just a season to help players and investor buy-in so they can take better profits during the bull season.
Keep HODLing for the next bull!

I saw Arkemis in level 6 to 7 and I was literally blown away. If they'd add a sneak ability to it, it would have been one of the most dangerous cards in the game. You're right, people hate bear market situations, unless we begin to see it as a building period.
