Because the discussions don't allow for sticky or pinned posts, I thought I'd create this blog post to link to people to direct them to some of the very common questions that get asked.
1. Hey, the information on this page isn't right or complete!
Look at the top of the page. Does it have a big banner right at the top that says it's under construction? If so, then don't whine about the information being wrong! Read, people!
Does it not have the banner? Leave a comment about the inaccuracy. Or better yet, edit it yourself! It is a wiki after all.
2. Editing Guidelines
Every wiki community has its own Manual of Style . Check ours out and keep our wiki looking great.
3. What do these abbreviations mean?
- NER and PER - Negative Effects Removal and Positive Effects Removal
- CDA - Cooldowns Activated
- DOT - Damage Over Time
- OFA - One For All (a kind of node during a race)
- DYP - Do Your Part (a kind of node duirng a race)
- JE - Joint Effort (a kind of node during a race)
- LTP - Limited Time Path, the special path available for a limited time during large maze events
4. Which monster is better? Is this monster good?
While there are some monsters that are objectively better than others, it really depends on the context. Specifically, what monsters do you have to choose from? The better question to ask yourself is "What role does this monster fill?" and "How does it compare to other monsters I have that also fill that role?" If you don't have any other monsters of that rarity, element, or book that fill that role, then it doesn't matter if the monster is that good. Use him until you come across a better monster. Check out this blog post for a more detailed explanation on this topic.
5. How can I breed this monster? Are there any other ways to breed it?
This wiki is filled with great information. Just look up the monster and the page will tell you how to breed it. If it says it's unbreedable, then it's unbreedable. We also have a page dedicated just to the combos for breeding legendary monsters.
6. How did I just breed this unbreedable monster?
Most days out of the week, there is a special breeding event happening. If you're going for that special monster, you'll find that you'll get some otherwise unbreedable rare, epic, or even legendary monsters as a result. It's just the result of the event. Check out this blog post for most details on this topic.
7. If I can't breed this monster, how am I supposed to get it?
Social Point is pretty generous with rewards. Monsters or their cells are often given as reward during events, in roulette spins, and in chests. Also keep an eye on the shop and the Monster Lab shop to possibly buy the monster. Just keep playing, you'll have an opportunity to get that monster you've got your eye on.
8. I've tried a bunch of times and haven't bred the monster, what gives?
The probabilities of getting a monster with a particular combination are listed on that monster's page. All of them are pretty low (especially the legendaries). Just keep trying, you'll get them eventually.
9. When are the discount times?
We don't know. Social Point used to announce all them at the beginning of the event, but they've stopped that. For larger maze events, typically, there is a discount the very first hour of the event (usually 30%) and the very last hour of the event (usually 20%). Other than that, just keep an eye on the game or the various Monster Legends communities to see when one is happening!
For single path "mazes" there is typically a 20% discount for the first several hours of the event. Then, there is a 10% discount for several hours. After the discounts expire, there are no discount times for the remainder of the event.
10. When will the limited time path be released?
It typically gets released 2 days into the event and will last for 2 days. Social Point obviously changes things up every now and then, though, so don't take that as a promise!
11. What is the limited time maze monster? Why isn't it on the article?
It's usually the new mythic monster that's the focus of the maze. If the limited time path isn't on the article page, it's probably because it hasn't started yet. We'll put it up as soon as it's started AND we have all the information on it.
12. I have X maze coins, will that get me X monster?
We try to present as much information as possible on our articles. Check out the page for that maze and take a look at the various tables. We'll tell you the TOTAL costs to get that particular monster (including the costs of any keys you'll need to unlock that monster). Then (when viewing on desktop) we'll break down all the nodes, along with a running total of the costs so you can see how much more you'll need to complete that path or get that particular reward you want.
Keep in mind, these mazes have A LOT of data in them, so it may take us a day or two after the event starts before we have everything in. Just sit tight until we can get it done (or if you have the information, feel free to contribute yourself!).
13. How many gems will it cost to get this monster?
That's not how progressives work. The gem cost for each node is reduced with each item you've collected. How many gems you decide to spend is your choice. Check out the page on progressive events for more information.
