First QUESTS: My Splinterlands Journey #2

in #spt10 months ago (edited)

I just joined Splinterlands a week ago, and wrote about my first battle experiences here: My Splinterlands Journey #1

I dedicate this series of articles to novice and beginner players in Splinterlands like myself.

Follow me in my journey to navigate Splinterlands. Let us learn and...

...let us have fun together!!!

We begin from where I left off... I reached the Bronze I league and generated enough points to get to the first level Silver III league. I stopped there so that I don't risk reducing my points and lose the 12 card rewards for the season.

This next and current season, you will note that despite reaching the Silver III league at the end of the last season, I started again from the Bronze II League. Do not be alarmed! Everyone starts from the next lower league at the start of a new season.

Are you like me?

Like.... just above the battle log, I see this figure of a scroll to the left of the page "QUEST", a blank bar in the center and a treasure chest at the end of the bar. I dilly-dally and procrastinate in finding out what that thing is all about.

WHY? Well... simply put, it is inundating for me because Splinterlands is the first online game I have ever played in my life!

The thing is... Splinterlands has answers to most questions. DUH!!!

So I read it and have the information I need! I am now less anxious (and less nervous!) about trying the Daily Quest. It is funny how that works 🤣!

I then proceed with the battles as one would ordinarily do, and in the process complete the Lyanna's Call Quest by winning 5 ranked battles with the Earth Splinter!

The bar is now green and the treasure chest and claim icon is active. I simply click on the claim button, and voila!!!! I am rewarded two cards!

How cool is that?👍 😎! Play the usual battles and get a chance to get rewarded additional cards for free!

One has a chance to be rewarded free cards every 24 hours by completing the Daily Quests. SWEET!!! Don't you just love that? 😍😍😍

Someone told me that these cards I was rewarded are not good at all? But who cares, right! What is important is the excitement of completing a Quest, and be rewarded a couple of FREE cards without doing anything out of the ordinary!

Okay... so I was thrilled to complete my first quest, I decided to continue on and attempt to do a second quest!!! (I know, the FAQ said one quest every 24 hours, but in this occasion, Splinterlands had one more quest available for me to do. So why not, right?)

Oh, have I told you that the game can be addicting 😁🤣?

The next quest was called Pirate Attack and called for 5 ranked battles wins with the Water Splinter!

I did complete the quest.. the bar is green all the way to the end, and the treasure chest claim icon is active... and I click on it, and voila!!!! I am rewarded two more cards!

THIS IS TOTALLY COOL?👍 😎! Play the battles and with it a potential to be rewarded cards for free every day, while at the same time gaining points to receive season rewards and level up to a higher league!

And look at what I got! It is a Sea Genie (which I need) and a Rare Death Monster! I like these cards!!!

For me personally, completing daily quests has benefits:

  • Free cards upon completion of quests.
  • It encouraged me to play the specific Splinters asked for in the quest and in the process learned more about how cards in a Splinter and their positioning/placement perform in specific battle rule sets.

  • I hope that this article will be helpful to novice and beginner players of Splinterlands.

    I am having so much FUN, and it is a challeging game to play! I want to thank @aggroed and @yabapmatt for creating such a fantastic game and another good way to build a bit of NFTs. Keep it coming!!!

    Thank you also to @clove71, @stokjockey, @senstless, @welshstacher, @mattclarke, @cryptoFrancois and @grapthar for the continued help and assistance.

    I have a passion for stacking silver & gold, home-cooking and travel. Follow me in my life journey.

    Thank you for viewing this article. I will see you again soon!

    I'll get to this thing ONE DAY, Sis. As I don't seemed to have a recreational life at this time. Not enough for even a poker hand.

    Posted using Partiko Android

    I think that one can join the game anytime at will, it is never too late to join in. It only took me a year from the time I got my first card and a half to play a practice battle... (I eventually sold all my cards... and I cannot believe that let go of my last ALPHA gold foil cards a couple of days before I started playing, because I had not thought that I would be joining the game 2 days after, LOL!!!)
    No wonder I am so sleepy and tired at work! I too do not have much recreational time... and now I realize that I have been playing during my home time for chores and relaxation, LOL!!! OMG.... that moji-you is a perfect reminder for me to have a more balanced day and make good use of my time!
    Have a fantastic (your) weekend the next 2 days, my sweetest sis @kerrislravenhill, take care 🥰🌺🤙 and a million Hugs and Kisses 🤗💕💋!!!!

    Welcome to the Club 'Too Busy for our Own Good' 😲😱😜😋😉

    Thanks for finding me, @clove71! I appreciate your support. Have a lovely day and take care 🥰🌺🤙

    What a lovely and detailed post you have created here. Fantastic content for the #spt tag!

    AWw... thanks @monster-creator!

    Happy to help! Good luck!

    THANK YOU so much for your help! I truly appreciate it, @grapthar! Have a lovely day and take care 🥰🌺🤙

    Thank you so kindly, @steemmonsters! I appreciate the support.

    Oh, by the way, the two quest thing happens if you skip a day. You can make the quest up the next day, but can only have 2 stacked at a time, so if you miss two days in a row, you can only make up one, then do that current day's quest.

    Another thing learned from you, my friend @grapthar! I just love the Splinterlands community!!! It is the B-E-S-T!!!! Have a beautiful day, my friend and take care 🥰🌺🤙

    hehe, happy to help! see you on the battlefield!

    Pretty Cool!

    psst, hey, I'll make you a good deal on a gold foil card..? 😱😲

    Perfect!!! Glad you told me before I got the other one! Take care.🥰🌺🤙

    Ms. Saver This is WONDERFUL. I Know that lots of New to the Game People Will find This Helpful if they take the time to Fully read this Post. I am So Proud of You and I can See How You have improved just over the past Couple of Weeks. Yes the Game is Addicting but I can assure you that I really don't know that much about Addiction. I Hope that you continue to Play the Monsters and Enjoy the Cards that you Add to Your Stack ! Happy #PirateSunday too Young Lady and I know it will be a Beautiful Day.......... @silversaver888

    Have I told you already that I have depleted my hard-earned steem leveling up my cards just so that I have a better chance to compete, hehehe!!! Now... isn't that a sign of addiction,😜 haha! But it is a challenging game that I enjoy very much. I am learning much as I go along. Thanks for your encouragement 👍 and I do hope to complete this season achieving my goal.
    Have an awesome #piratesunday @stokjockey, and take care 🥰🌺🤙

    Lol, I really really could have sworn I saw your posts opening cards a longer time ago, but maybe you only opened packs? It's nice to see things from a newbies perspective, because the game changes constantly.

    Did you see the updates scheduled for next week? If not, check the steemmonsters account with the big updates.. Pretty cool!

    See you in the battlefield!

    Yes, I have been buying cards from the very start. I sold alpha and beta cards before I started playing, like I also recall doing card opening articles of 5 packs at a time last year, but have since sold all my cards, even several gold foil cards, which I now regret, LOL! I only joined in the game 10 days ago using my playable cards... hehehe... that was how inundated and scared I was... I couldn't even get myself to play a practice battle until very recently! I love the challenge... happy when I win battles, frustrated whenever I lose, but always look at it as a challenge and thus, I intend to continue on... until my deck of cards are not good enough to win, hehehe. And yes, I've spent much of my hard-earned steem to level up my cards some to have a bit of a fighting chance, LOL!
    Have a #beautifulsunday and a #sublimesunday, my friend @anouk.nox and take care 🥰🌺🤙 (oh BTW, I thought I saw another account with your user name and an additional extension... is that you?)
    🥰🌺🤙 !tip

    Lol, let me tell you that I had a starterset and some packs opened before steemmonsters was released (like many of us) .. but then it actually went live and I didn't even try playing for a couple of months haha.. so I get it ;)

    And with practice you learn, that was the same with me.. I still can't explain to anyone else why something works like many players can, I mostly play by feeling or whatever you want to call it :)

    @anouk.nox.spt is mine if you wondered.. I also have one with .ccc behind it only for curation

    ps check your explorer
    I send you 3 cards that I noticed you didn't have and I often use myself.. only level 1's but they may be helpful ;) Cheers!

    OMGwad... you are so kind! I love them! I spent so much of my steem just level up my cards to two or three, and I am nowhere close to having as good a Splinter team as I want to be! I hope in time, that I will! Thank you again, @anouk.nox!!!! Luv ya🥰🌺🤙

    You're welcome! I have a bunch single cards that aren't nearly enough to level them up anyways, and noticed you are short on some of these, so try them and decide if you need them levelled ;) ..
    Always (I repeat: always!) use the 0 mana chicken when you have a free slot in your team! tank or at the back, it's useful! and it doesn't cost you any mana anyway.

    Enjoy <3

    I think it is her, @anouk.nox is a Spinvest-Neo Gang Banger too!

    Lol, not sure what that means, but I did delegate yes :)

    Hehe. Welcome to splinter land baby✌🤗

    Hahaha... I finally went to the dark side, my friend @abdex9! See you in the battlefield (as they say, although we are not in the same league, hehehe... I am a newbie/beginner).
    Have a great day, and take care 🥰🌺🤙

    Hehehe... the game is so challenging! But I really have to balance my time with this new thing . I really have not played online games ever in my life. This is the first time.
    I hope you are having an easy day today, bestie @silverd510. MIne was so hectic yesterday, I could only do steemit late at night. Take care 🥰🌺🤙 and a ton of hugs 🤗 🤗 🤗

    The quickest way I can explain things is I was up for 67 hours straight. None of those hours were pleasant ones.

    Awww... Bestie... I think I have an inkling of how intense you are with your work! OMG!!! 67 hours staring, and still able to post for us, your greatest friends and fans. I don't know how you do it, my bestie @silverd510. Only a dedicated individual like you can do all, despite the busy-ness of your real life. My hats off to you... you continue to be my idol and inspiration! A million and a ton of hugs 🤗 🤗 🤗, bestie. Take care 🥰🌺🤙

    Great and detailed journey! Keep up the grind.
