Also, guys, here's a cool easter egg some might've not found yet; poke your skylanders or the opponents. They even have multiple responses!

...No, still no luck getting it working over here, not at home at this time of the day anyway. Is it such a crime to go around sticking my thumb on a bunch of fantasy creatures' faces so they'll swat me away? :c

i spend some more time with Roller Brawl and she's actually not as bad as I thought. You shouldn't keep her in the sideline becuase then she'll get KO'd without doing anything. When she has a good amount of health, put her in the front and make her do her damage, since she does a lot and her Fearsome Charge does more damage if she has been switched that round. Just make sure to keep her health high and attack the enemy when his is low.

Roller Brawl, especially when she has her roller skate gears on and a swapping item (like say spitifire having on his nitro tank) can really do some major funky damage, but like Whirlwind and Eruptor, her HP is so small that she can get devastated pretty quick. However, what a ride eh?

Just finished the entire Kaos realm albeit with some levels yet to be 3 starred on my iOS account.

If I were to sum this up with just for/against then here's how I would list them. Might contain spoilers so view at your own discretion.


For:
- Much challenging than the 8 Elemental Islands/Bosses
- Some levels require some strategic thought in deck building and not just about going with your vanilla PvP power deck. (Hint: The Tempest is almost must for one level)
- Soundtrack / Battlefield rocks

Against:
- Coin rewards (or rewards in general) feel largely insignificant for completing Kaos levels that are arguably harder than the elemental boss levels.
- There's no cut scene like the beginning of the game after beating Kaos (no Kaos ramblings or Buzz celebrations)


Hopefully I didn't spoil too much for you, it seems there could be some tweaks in the future or even another possible overhaul so we can gain a coin rewards again.
For now its going to be a large hill to climb for newcomers yet to build up their collection.

I just came from GAME in they had the Battle Packs and the boosters. Also they stocked the large binder which had a picture of textured pages but is only clear card slots. So beware if you were buying the binder for the pictures alone.

Haven't openned any packs yet waiting to get home. Also they had Trillapiide and Buzz Wing out today. £15.00 each. And large discounts on Supercharger figures, triple and vehicles.

Crystal Cudgel and I was finally able to scan it. Oh and I also got a golden foiled Torchnado, I love the animations on the cards (also have two animated Flashwing cards which look gorgeous).

#359 Posted: 17:58:10 27/05/2016
I love the animated cards. I keep trying to get the developers attention that 3 of the 270 cards do not show the animated picture, Ampli-flier (Spyro), Static Pulse (Flashwing) and Nature's Fury (life) do not.

I believe you have to upgrade the cards in order for them to animate.

Quick question. How many of you got Whirlwind or Flashwing? I know there rare but I'm curious because those are the cards I want the most (I got Spyro today)

I pulled a Flashwing from a booster a few days ago! My only ultimate skylander and one of my favorites.
lamoracke Yellow Sparx Gems: 1635
#364 Posted: 02:26:48 01/06/2016
I have pulled as far as ultimate skylanders go in my packs...

Whirlwind 2, Tree Rex 2, Krypt King 1, Flashwing 4, Eruptor 5, Wash Buckler 1, Ninjini 2, Countdown 1.

Some extras I have already traded but will consider trading any of my others for holograms I want/need.

I finally found a Battle Pack in the wild and with that I have one Skylander of each element. I got a lot of duplicates but I also filled up the ticket meter and finally unlocked Ninjini. Foreboding Curse is best card in the game 10/10.
lamoracke Yellow Sparx Gems: 1635
#370 Posted: 18:19:35 03/06/2016
Foreboding Curse does rock, but its hard to say for sure its the best. I kept figuring when I got that card I would get 3 stars against this one monster.

Sap of the Ancients can be spectacular, especially if you draw say Reflective Ray with it for 0 coins or another big one

Reflective Ray can be legendary. I had a battle where I got nailed for almost 300 damage to Flashwing. I cast that card and all 3 opponents got nailed for 300 damage. That was a wow moment.

If I had to choose a top 3 of cards that can on their own change a game, it would be a hard argument for me to not include those 3.

One of my favorite skylanders in the game is eruptor.

His sheer power makes him a great guy to get the job done.

my only gripe is his low hp amount.

Battlecast screws up opening week big time.

Well, we all said it was going to happen, they did it anyway. I'd say get hopes for expansion way lower than they currently are if they keep this up.

Its a great game and written very smart by developers. However, developers and artists cant advertise a game. Only die hard folks know about this game.

Yep, even as someone who knew about this game, I found the advertising for it frustrating. Who is going to buy the packs, they were put on shelves with no one knowing what they are for. My area hardly has any sell, minus me.

#374 Posted: 18:29:54 10/06/2016
I just finished the Magic Realm and I don't know about you guys, but this was the easiest realm so far. I don't know if my deck was just too op (Spyro, Trigger Happy & Hot Head) or if it really is that easy. I finished all missions with three stars in my first try, except for the last one because Lightning Strike just decided to appear out of nowhere in the enemies' deck. How did all of you master it?
lamoracke Yellow Sparx Gems: 1635
#375 Posted: 18:28:07 13/06/2016
Just spoke with one of the developers of the game on Twitter. The fact you can no longer add gear to sideline enemies or allies is intentional. There seem to be a few items that skip this by accident like Sky Iron Shield but it seems this what I thought essential part of the game is not that anymore. Ah well. Good to know its not a bug.
Bifrost Diamond Sparx Gems: 8668
#376 Posted: 19:02:46 13/06/2016
Well, all character Gear got crazy nerfs, since you can't use them without the guy on the front. Cursed Choker is a little more useful now if you can combine it with swap/ensnares oddly.

Wait, what about Merchant of Menace?

Am just talking about items you intentionally put on a specific skylander. Merchant of Menace is an oddball.

Referring to Crystal Cudgel, Training Shield, those kind of routine ones.

Well, before mid May you could do that...I would often add Hot Pants to the enemy I wanted to the most on the sidelines...or add Vanishing Cloak to say Hex or Roller Brawl regardless where they were...now you need them up front to do so.

If you try to do it with Sky Iron Shield, at least on the android, you can see a remnant of that ability.
JJAtelier Blue Sparx Gems: 727
#380 Posted: 02:59:58 14/06/2016
Well that's a shame, would've been nice if they telegraphed this change in the update/patch notes.

I think with this tweak, some gears are practically inviable because they revolve around so much preparation by preemptively casting it on a sideline ally that you don't want to expose such as The Doublizer on Trigger Happy. Hot Pants has definitely lost its mojo as a gear removal and Healing Amulet can no longer liberally heal a wounded/critical sideline ally overtime since you have to bring them to the front (which not what you ideally want). Would appreciate if there's some written form of justification for this change.

Edit: Even Chalk Albatross takes this nerf hard since you can't flexibility choose who you may want to potentially snare if you want to combo it with a swap spell.

I don't think Activision is serious about Battlecast. It stealth launched and wasn't even mentioned at E3. I think they sent it out to die.

Pretty much. It's getting social media posts, but they don't have ads, posters or any of the tourneys they promised out yet. At least Lost Islands and Battlegrounds got a bit of traction the first days, but Acti treat the best Skylanders mobile game out as the most expendable.

At least there's an sorta-official tourney happening on Spain from Fnac, but again, that's it, and it's for kids.

Just do not understand personally. They had great artists on this game and did a great job with these cards (even if too expensive), wish more folks knew about it. I played 3 pvp matches last night and I think all were against bots. My kid at least had a real person.

It's in a separate thread but anyway - Lamoracke found promo cards for the upcoming expansion. They're currently labeled as mystery and variant cards.

You have Swarm, Popthorn, Blades,Fling Kong... And you choose Sonic Boom, come on.

Sonic Boom is awesome in the actual skylanders game and if it is a true expansion, we will have more than 1 air character, but likely Sonic Boom will be the common version of that.

Time will tell!

Wish I could fly to the east coast and get some packs and see what happens when you scan them.

Oh man, someone finally put up one of the Golden Queen boss battles up on youtube. You really don't know how OP she is until she wipes your team in 3 turns flat, playing blind and not knowing her gimmick beforehand of course. The guy just barely wins by Smash Hit's instakill, but any other team and he'd be toast.

So, to sum up, the new update, even though the notes do not advertise it....

Allowed you to scan the new 6 cereal cards..Obsidian Hot Head, High Noon Trigger Happy, Sonic Boom, and Prism Break. Also you get one card for Prism Break and one card for Sonic Boom. Each of the 2 new characters also have a special ability and the 2 new variants have a new special ability. So this new update technically unlocks 10 new cards to play with.

Also, I see that deck creation is now changed. You cannot add more than 10 cards for one character so if you really like the life element, you will not get more than 10 added unless in theory you use 2 life characters. You do not have to use 10 per character (ie non elemental) but 10 is the max of one skylander.

Those were the big things I have noticed so far.

I got all the cards except Mood Ring. According to what you are saying, does Mood Ring give special abilities? Even if I have the original version, I should try to get the new one? Also, does the physical card of Mood Ring look any different?
