My Splinterlands adventure 2024 - week 16 as I enjoy the Bitcoin Halving event



Splinterlands latest news are:

  • The Baron's Bounty Bitcoin Halving Promo Event started yesterday, you got two Promo cards with Halving ability (on hit, reduce the enemy card damage to half, rounded up). I did make an effort and got 6 Legendary and 26 Rare cards. Every 10K DEC will give you a Raffle chance for prizes like 500 PLOT tokens, 100 Alpha packs, 250 Beta packs, 500 Untamed Packs, 50 Essence Orb Packs, 100 Azmare Dice, Packs and 20 Runi NFTs.
  • Glint is the new buzzword in Splinterlands, as no longer you may receive cards, Merits or SPS in chests, instead you are receiving some new token called Glint, and you can use it to buy all kind of cards, Merits, potions and even titles. One way, this is good, let you focus on either Gladiators or Reward cards, but personally, I would liked more if I coud select the level (common, rare, epic, legendary, and pay adequatelly). It seems that the season reward is twice the Glint tokens that you got during the season. Which is good or bad, depending on your cards.
  • Staked SPS will be counted, along with staked GLX, for the Colony Airdrop, which it seems to go for 5 years, or at least that's what they said. There is a minimum requirement though - 10K GLX, 100 GLUSD and/or 5K SPS. Enjoy!
  • Third round of Conflicts is close to end, and the best way to buy them wagons (and the cheapest) is by using 50 Vouchers, which strangelly enough did not get too expensive. As you may know, each wagon can be used to stake 5 cards and up to 100 packs. You get contribution points for everything you stake, and 100K contribution points will get you one airdrop chance. 300 chances gives you a guaranteed card for the next one - Legendary summoners are coming. Lorkus has +1 Melee and Magic attack boost, and a set of two skills to choose, either Life Leech and Affliction for two units, or Trample and Fury, quite a versatile card, useful for both Melee or Magic teams.


  • We got additional information for the lands, check this out on The Secret of Praetoria - Phase 2 Whitepaper Reveal, as we got Part 3 here and Part 4 here. Basically we got three types of buildings available for players to construct - Resource Production, Resource Refinement, and Resource Storage buildings, and we may need DEC, Vouchers and Production Points to build them. It is getting complicated then, with a lot of resources, which can be refined, and even the storage would be tricky to cover completely. Then, we need to pay maintenance costs for the building, and you can even repurpose buildings, for a cost. Castles and Keeps will produce special resources/ingredients. Then, the Part 4 explains the desalinization process, where you can remove the Salt from the soil and water, reducing the buildings maintenance costs and the fees/taxes level. Storage is the word of the day, as you may need it badly when you have multiple lands to maintain.
  • On the second phase of the Land expansion, you will be able to provide liquidity for a resource, paired with DEC. When you provide liquidity, you are rewarded Elixir, essential resource meant to be combined with Magical Resources in the Laboratory.

My Splinterlands battle plans are going well, as I just reached the Champion III in the current season. The Riftwatchers cards upgrade is on the schedule, 27 cards left to max up, 6 Common, 12 Rare and 9 Legendary, with few more cards upgraded, but I do not think that I will upgrade all the legendary cards, as they are too expensive. All Riftwatchers Common upgraded to level 6, I try to get all RW Rare to level 5 next. On Rebellion, all common cards upgraded to level 5, try all rare to level 4 next. I need something crazy like 1.2M DEC to fully stake all my lands. I estimate that this will take me 3 months at least.

Riftwatchers goals:

All common level 7 - Done. All level 8 - Next

All rare level 4 - Done. All level 5 - Next

Rebellion goals:

All common level 5 - Done. All level 6 - Next

All rare level 3 - Done. All level 4 - Next

All epic level 2 - Done. All level 3 - Next

All legendary level 1- Done. All level 2 - Next

Rental stats: no cards for rent

As I have started this many seasons ago (beginning of November 2022), these are my stats for the packs I got as investment to be sold later:

Chaos Legion packs unopened: 350 (-20 sold to get some Vouchers for the Promo card launching)

Riftwatchers packs unopened: 0 (ZERO)

Rebellion packs: 0 (ZERO)

DEC: 1.678.747 staked for land.

Cards upgraded:

I got 6 BCX of Baron Fyatt, not buying the last 5, as I can do without Blind ability, and 26 Enforcer cards - One guaranteed gold for my small account, and 25 BCX to reach level 4, for the 3 Ranged damage and True Strike (never miss).


I then got another 8 cards to fully stake 2 Epic lands, 3 Twilight Basilisks,


4 Exploding Rats,


And 1 Naga Assassin.


Then I fully upgraded 2 more Riftwatchers cards, Bramble Pixie to level 10, adding a nice 5 Mele attack,


And Raa, a legendary, to level 4, adding Rust to decrease armor and raising Ranged attack to 4.


Then I checked a lot of Rebellion cards, and upgraded a level when they only needed few BCX to reach that, Chaos Lackey to 6, +1 Speed,


Kha'zi Fire Mage to level 6, adding Fury skill,


Torch Myrmidon to level 5, +1 HP,


Swell Spore Beast to level 4, gaining Affliction skill,


Muspellheim Demon to level 5, gaining +1 Ranged attack,
