  • Themed Starter Packs

    This is simply a random idea I had. With the current meta, the offered starter packs would only bump the new player's power for a bit (a Vart and Barkspawn aren't the best buddies for this). As a challenge to myself, I thought of making themed squads with at least one nugly sweater as starter pack ideas.

    While this is in Feedbacks/Suggestions section, I'd rather have this as a sort of make-a-themed-squad forum game. The rules are laid below (set of rarities) for you to work on, though I'd like to add more to this:
    1. Suggested squads should follow the rarity limit
    2. While not desirely powerful, the squad should at least fight its way to Hard dailies and Very Hard nexus
    3. Nugly sweaters not required
    4. Name it!
    Cost: Can be purchased* via 3 methods
    120 gems**
    300,000 gold***

    *One time purchase only
    **same cost in gems of current starter pack ($9.99)
    ***2/3 of value of a guaranteed Legendary hero from SP

    1 random Epic Leg (or Armored Bear, he looks awesome for everyone)
    1 Legendary*
    2 Epics*
    1 Rare
    No runes offered

    *RP/SP/KP Heroes only, all at L1/T1

    Starter Packs suggested by our community:

    Alduin The World Eater's Starter Packs
    Flerm's Starter Packs
    Murphando's Starter Packs

    Now, these are my samples:

    Demands of the Qun - StA, the only good 1* other than Arv, since there won't be much auras from the epics, I picked him
    Sten the Arishok
    Beresaad Warrior
    Red Nugly Sweater

    Nature of the Beast - a bit sad with the faction color break, Lady should be Blue/Red with spirit buffs as well
    Lady of the Forest
    Blue Nugly Sweater

    Disciples of Blight - probably the most effective starter pack
    The Architect
    The Withered
    The Herald
    Black Nugly Sweater

    Nobles of Ferelden - could swap out with Maric, but I think he's a bit too much
    Loghain Mac Tir
    King Cailan
    Queen Anora
    White Nugly Sweater

    So, thoughts? Got cool-looking starters to share? Go for it!

            I have a couple ideas to share!

            In War, Victory
            Armored Bear
            Warden Commander Duncan
            Grey Warden Alistair

            Grey Warden Mage

            Traditions of the Dalish
            Keeper Marethari

            Dalish Solis Warrior

            Lost in the Fade
            Pride Demon
            The Baroness
            Connor Guerrin
            Arcane Horror

            Sloth Demon

            For the Glory of the Maker
            Armored Bear
            Knight-Captain Cullen
            Templar Knight-Corporal
            Knight-Commander Meredith

            Knight-Commander Greagoir

            The Stone
            Lord Pyral Harrowmont

            Paragon Branka

            What would make these even better is if instead of gems, they cost gold (or some of them cost gold, some of them gems). I tried to keep all of these about within the 120 gem range. I'd have certainly rather had one of these than the starter pack I bought oh so many moons ago with Barky, Vart, 2 Drakes, and one other rare.

              Made a link directly to your post Alduin The World Eater!

              And, I'll put something up to make the purchase optional, say, the player can buy in cash, gems, or gold. The freedom of choice.

Users agree to EA Terms of Service as well. Misrepresenting oneself to engage in illegal activity will be immediately reported to EA for legal action.

                      Even though these are forums to allow free expression of ideas, there are other (real) people involved and one should respect their opinions and questions as ORIGINALLY POSTED IN THE TOPIC HEADINGS. Moderators are here to uphold and enforce these rules and the Terms of Service. Freedom to express your ideas, concerns, suggestions, and feedback, does not allow you the freedom of saying anything you want when you agree to the Terms of Service.

                      4. Fourth Offense - Permanent ban

                      If you have received a Permanent ban, this will extend to all future accounts created. If you are discovered to create a new account, it will also be banned.

                      Advertising or soliciting other members to buy, sell, or peruse any products or services including other applications or accounts, along with chain letters and junk mail.

                      Topics/posts that contain this will be both edited and closed or deleted, and an immediate 3-day ban will be issued without warning.

                      Racism, bigotry, misogyny, hate speech, discrimination against any race, sexual preference, gender, or religion will not be tolerated.

                      Flaming includes material that is knowingly defamatory, illegal, abusive, threatening or harassing.

                      As with anything, you, as a member, should use good common sense when posting. In other words, you agree not to be a jerk. Posts containing personal attacks on another user will be edited/deleted at the moderators’ will. All posts/threads will be deleted.

                      Flaming or bashing of EA/CG, the devs, or the mods is not allowed. All such posts/threads will be deleted and an immediate 3-day ban will be issued without warning.

                      Right to Privacy
                      You will not violate a person's privacy by publishing, against another member's will, any information that is private and personal. Nor will you post private communication between EA Capital Games Support, other forum members, moderators, community managers, administrators, EA Capital Games employees, or partners of EA Capital Games on these forums or anywhere else.

                      Unless expressly endorsed by EA Capital Games, publicizing any correspondence of a private nature such as support tickets, email, Private Messages (PM) or chat logs thereof by any medium is NOT permitted.

                      Discussing or posting of another player's spending habits will be deleted.

                      Obvious spam (repetitive nonsense posts) will result in the poster permanently banned and all posts deleted.

                      Material that is sexually or otherwise obscene is not permitted on these forums.

                      Topics/posts containing such will be deleted on sight. Forum poster will be permanently banned from the forums.

                      Future Events/Promotions
                      Any posts or threads revealing future events or promotions that were not disclosed by the Capital Games team will be deleted.

                      Posting the same question in more than one forum is not allowed. Should this occur, then only the thread in the most relevant forum will be left open; all others will be locked/closed and subsequently deleted.

                      The use of any exploits or known bugs or editing of files in order to gain an unfair advantage while playing, will result in a permanent game and forum ban.

                      Accusing another player of cheating will result in your post/thread being deleted and a message sent to you, stating to refrain from further accusations. If continued accusations occur, a forum ban will result. If you believe a player to be cheating, send a PM to the Community Manager with as much detail as possible.

                      Please privately contact the Community Manager in order to submit an inquiry regarding this behavior.

                      Off-Topic Posting
                      Taking over a thread by posting excessively off-topic is not allowed. Off-Topic posts and any responses will be moved to their own, new thread if possible, or else deleted.

                      Political Posting
                      Because political beliefs, like religion, are a personal and sensitive topic, avoid posting about politics on the forums.

                      Customer Support Inquiries
                      All inquiries regarding Customer Support should be routed through the online web portal for support. The Community Manager and Moderators are unable to assist with inquiries regarding support tickets. Posting your ticket number and requesting assistance on the forums will result in the post being deleted. Sending a Private Message to the Community Manager or Moderators about CSR Inquiries is not to be tolerated, and will be ignored.

                      Additionally, all interactions with Customer Support are considered confidential, and all issues are handled on a case-by-case basis. As such, posts containing transcripts or results of your interactions with Customer Support will be edited or deleted. Keep in mind that your friend's case may not be exactly like your case, so the results of your request may differ from the results of your friend. Customer Support will not discuss the details of any player's case with any other player, but will provide support to you under our established, confidential policies. Asking why your request was resolved differently than another player will result in your post being deleted.

                      Violation of these terms is grounds for removal from EA Capital Games games.

                      What should I do if I see objectionable material on the forums?
                      It is important that members recognize the real-time nature of this forum: the moderators cannot always monitor the contents of posted messages, and as such depend upon you to inform them when participants or their messages are violating our policy as stated here. You must also recognize that they cannot respond immediately to such notices and that some time may pass before any warranted action is taken.

                      To contact a moderator, please use the Flag Post function on the post represented by a flag:

                      What happens if I break the rules?
                      At best, your post will be edited by one of the moderators and you will be issued a warning. If the offense is more serious your post will be deleted. Posting "why was my post edited/deleted?" etc. will only make matters worse, so please don't. If a moderator has not sent you a message stating why, please send the Lead Moderator a message asking for a reason.

                      Should you have already been issued warnings and continue to break the rules, you will be issued an infraction - your posting privileges will be disabled for three days, but you will still be able to view the forums as a guest.

                      For persistent and deliberate rule-breakers your account will be "Banned". That means you are no longer welcome on these forums and/or games and your account will no longer function in them. If you re-register, your new account will be banned as well.

                      Posting Suggestions
                      In the attempt to create a compromise where everyone is happy, the following suggestions are also recommended:

                      1. Be civil and courteous. This forum is visited by people from all over the world, of different ages, genders, religions, and backgrounds, and are each entitled to their own opinion. Keep in mind that in most cases, posts are not intended to offend. If you find yourself taking offense at a post, take a step back and contact the person directly, or appeal to a moderator for arbitration. Don't make the situation worse by posting in anger and lashing out at the original poster. Also, see Flaming, Right to Privacy, and Hatred.

                      2. Make sure that your message topics fit the topic description of the forum in which you are posting. This is for your own benefit - for example, a question regarding a bug or problem should be posted in the Feedback section under the appropriate heading.

                      3. Use the search function before posting, particularly if the question is problem oriented. Most technical questions have been answered before, and solutions are freely available. Additionally, before posting a bug, check the Known Issues thread to quickly see if the staff is already aware, and to find the discussion thread about that issue.

                      4. Make sure that you have followed #3 before posting

                      5. Read the sticky threads at the top of each forum - they are there for a reason, and generally contain information relevant to the forum and/or game.

                      6. Don't quote the entire message that you're responding to, only the pertinent passage. This makes it easier to read for other users.

                      7. If you find it easier to express yourself en français, auf Deutsch, en español, in Nederlands, in Italiano, or any other language, post in the International Discussion forum. Hopefully someone who speaks the same language as you will be able to assist you. All posts in other sections (non-International) of the forums must be in English, so please make use of Google Translate if you need assistance with translation. Posting in English will allow the widest range of people to assist you.

                      In addition to the Forum Rules, you are bound to the general EA Terms of Service both on these forums and in the game. Links to the TOS are as follows:

                      EA TOS English
                      EA TOS French
                      EA TOS German
                      EA TOS Russian
                      EA TOS Spanish

                      By registering and posting on these forums, you agree to be bound to the rules and disciplinary actions set forth above.
