Shang stung island grind for unlocks
04/22/2019 10:42 AM EST

I'm realre reluctant to voice concerns here but have the devs ever considered unlocks with character level? My choices are my own here but I just spent 100 bucks on this game only to find out shang tsung island is a tedious soul sucking, pointless, frustrating grind fest. A few reviews even called it predatory loot box implementation. Wondering how every one feels on this subject matter so I can wipe this stank off my genuieg excitement for its release.

I would like to know a few things, first how many coins do u get for any tower run? How many total krypt items are there? Finally, how much is the average item and what is the most expensive you've seen?

Some chests can be 15000, some 1500. It is hard work but very doable. Completing a Tower Of Time can net you 50000 coins. It’s the souls and hearts which have been a bit of an issue for me.

i've spent around 500k, since last monday... the grind is Real :)

there is so many boosters(cheaper chests or no jump scares, when useing the blindfold) for the krypt alone.

and 99 % of the chests has random loot.

Gonna take some time !

But guys, once you get Shao Kahn's hammer you can break vases and get 2-5 coins a pop. Really helps.

Grind my fucking ass...

It's easy to get coins and played for 3 hours and h locked a few good things...

There is no loot boxes and they will fix the currencies..

Fuck the reviews.

The krypt has always been a grind fest since MK5 .... We are now at MK11.... Its supposed to have hundreds or thousand of chests and its supposed to take forever to unlock them all. Its a fun adventure mode with lots of areas to unlock and puzzles (which do NOT require opening a single chest). I'm enjoying all the lore, and character cameos in the krypt such as reptile and ermac etc. Seeing the warrior shrine and the pit again. Finding all the hidden hearts with the scorpion spear. Its a very fun area and you do not need the krypt to unlock any characters so who is bitching about the reviews? There is over 1000 skins in the game to unlock. Take your time and enjoy the game or use real word currency because you have you have patience issues and want stuff right away like every other loser that wants shortcuts in life. Review was dumb. Krypt is amazing, that is all.

I do enjoy/love the environment. Such a nostalgia trip. I'm probably not that far in it yet. Gold coins are the easiest to come by. Those hearts and souls however... I like the different currencies and how to obtain them, maybe not the amount you get. Hearts especially seem very hard to obtain.

Has anyone else noticed these Kronika vessels? I was surprised to see them, because I hadn't seem them yet in other peoples gameplay. The first one did give me good stuff.
There is also a way to forge items in The Krypt, but how do I pull up the combinations of forging that I already found? I know they are in the main menu with "Kollection". But are we expected to remember them or write them down? I can't seem to find a tab in The Krypt with the unlocked forging lists to forge something. And it's stupid to having to quit The Krypt, just to look it up and go back into The Krypt.

The recipe is shown in the "Kollection" but you have to remember it if you wanna forge it in the krypt.

I’m enjoying it so far. So are the chests random?

And if I activate the Kronika rewind does it just refill the chests with random rewards?

chests are non-ranodomly random, which means that every player will get the same items in the end after he or she opens them all, but for every player all of it is randomized, so someone can find something at the very end what somebody else found in the begining. only some more recognizable chests with very specific items should be on the same spots for everyone. thats how i understand it.

The difference is the Krypt wasn't randomized before. You knew where you could find Cyrax in MKDA and could save up for him.

I believe the microtransactions will cover the souls and hearts for you.

Except that there is no unlockable fatalities, brutalities or characters in the krypt so we arent gate locked by anything other than artwork, and skins. Sucks to be gate locked by skins but it also makes people stand out that do have the skin from the person that doesnt. Since they are randomized, you should be opening chests nomore than 2000 souls in the beginning. The heart chest will be a little annoying to open though but these are skins we are talking about and they are FREE and not needing real life currency. I dont really see the problem here? 2000 souls to repair the pit 2 in the krypt was excessive however and maybe that number will drop in a hotfix that boon mentioned.

What do you mean? To my recollection, I've gotten fatalities/brutalities from chests in The Krypt.

You can perform the brutality and fatality if you know the input command already. You do not need to unlock it in the krypt and we are just now finding out that the heart chest are NOT randomized further making the krypt grind completely fine as intended. Those are hard to get seeing as you only get 2 hearts per brutality in a match and the average heart chest is 100 hearts or 250 hearts.

The krypt has been very fun for me, people just want things done in 1 day these days and would rather pay to have all the features in krypt unlocked instead of earning it themselves. That is one of the reasons why devs abuse microtranactions in the first place!
