EDIT: Cory answered the questions in the livestream! :)
Thanks!

I'll update the topic.

1) The dungeon crawler +100% loot bonus...
You get TWO rolls on the loot table.

2) What's the reward for successfully DEFENDING your keep in Keep Defense?
Successfully defending your keep gets you a portion of the siege fee paid by the attacker. Another portion goes into the "jackpot".

3) Are your NPC faction allegiance determined at the account-level or champion level?
NPC Faction allegiance occurs at the ACCOUNT level.
(i.e. Void Society, Cartographers)

4) Is it okay for a single player to have multiple accounts?
d000d, I believe, got a message saying multi-boxing was okay? [needs confirmation]






A) Are Keep Defense decks "locked out" of your current collection or anything similar? Does it use mercenaries/AI/alt champions? Can you control the defense? Can multiple people attack the keep at once (i.e. 3v1 raid)?
Unknown.

B) Can you access the Auction House/market from anywhere in the game (i.e. GW2 style) or is it "centralized" to city locations only (i.e. WoW style)?
Unknown.

C) The arena (squirrels, giants, dinosaurs) and other factions - are those cards tradeable on the AH? If so, can you use them in your deck even if you're not of that faction?
Unknown

1) you get double the loot: if a boss drop 1 card, 1 piece of equipment, and 4000 gold, the dungeon crawler will get 2 cards, 2 pieces of equipment, and 8000 gold.

One question I would like answered is: Will there be a way to see what cards/equipment you are missing in your inventory?

Have the said that? Because +100% loot drops doesn't necessarily mean that.

In regards to 3 (which is something I'd love to have answered myself), could you please ask if possible, if two accounts are allowed, if there'd be any restriction on the two, like the amount of trading, as I am considering *not* merging my RL and DC tiers.

Yes, this has been specifically stated. It was in one of the interviews, and it was also quoted in a thread or two. I can't remember where I saw/heard it, but I did :)

How many pieces of equipment are there?

Approximately what do you get for dungeon completion. For example X gold, X pieces of equipment etc?

Essentially I'm looking for the difficulty in collecting a certain piece of equipment without trading with these two questions.

They have said two different numbers in regard to the amount of gear in the game: the first number I heard a couple weeks ago was over 1800, and in the live stream last night, Chris said 1500. He also said you would have to get lucky to get a specific piece.

I'm guessing that you will be able to search a fan site after beta/release as we learn where different things drop though.

If they're tradeable on the AH though, then it's less 'severe' than it might be otherwise as you still have the potential to get the other card/s if you find you like it better. So I think it's a fair question.

True, but the feeling I got was that he implied 'bound' at the account level. Still, it's worth asking.

Hopefully then the two different cards are same stats just different art at that point. Because otherwise it's just not fun for the half that "chose the wrong faction".

We need some clarification on how black tiger works - specifically people wanted to know if you can break them down for crafting, if we can save a playset for using in PvE decks, and how the equipment will work if you can't use them without using a lotus mid-game.

It is a pretty strange card, and more info might just tempt people into pledging a little higher if the percieved value of the lotus were to go up even more.

For that matter, ask about the lotus too - how do the threshold and mana interact exactly? Is it all temporary? Does the threshold stick, and the mana fade?

1. Do I need to use the free draft every week or if I can save them for a later later?

2. Do I also need to login weekly to retrieve my free draft?

3. For example, if I wasn't able to login for a month, will I have 4 free draft after I come back or only 1 (for that week?

4. Can I wait for other set to come out before I use my free drafts for set one or are the drafts linked to a particular set?

1) Use it or lose it, already answered officially.

2) Pretty sure 1) covers that, since you would lose it if you didn't log in for a week.

3) See 1)

4) Obviously, no. Unless you are talking about the 3 free drafts, in which case that hasn't been answered. But the lifetime/year free drafts are specifically linked to whatever sets are currently draftable. If it is every set, then it is every set, if it is only set 2, then you have to use it on set 2.

Yeah my bad thats what i get for not reading correctly. I don't think they have put any restrictions on what can by broken down yet as far as cards go and I doubt they will.

Can't answer the question about mana/threshold without opening some dispute but as I read it. The mana will last until your next turn, and the threshold stays till the end of the gam, Threshold does not effect your mana only your ability to play cards and the effects of the cards.

I only added the tiger destroying because it was spammed in the stream, I assume it can be destroyed like any other card, but if it answers a question, may as well ask it.

And if it works like MTG and temporary mana, it would all vanish at the end of turn, and this is where the confusion lies. There is a good chance it is temporary (allowing you to choose what to play that turn) and then returning to normal after the turn ends. There is an equal chance it is permanent.

And I would assume any mana OVER your 'maximum' would be lost, but I would think anything under would be kept (otherwise you could end up at 13/1 turn 1, and save it for some crazy combo, or whatever. I think it will be use it or lose it.)

*When will the stream for the $2million bear fight take place? Can we buy tickets to the event?

*Have you ever played the Facebook game "Castle Age". There is a lot of ideas through that game that can develop the "Defend your Keep". You're on to something big with your initial idea, but there is so much more you can do then you're considering atm. I'd like the "Defend Your Keep" to be further discussed or I may just start a brainstorm thread on it. I'm trying to think if Evony could also give us some ideas to ponder. Honestly, this could potentially be the solution to the PVE "End Game" if done right. Thread Made (http://forums.cryptozoic.com/showthread.php?t=24723&p=238166#post238166)

Please read - the question isn't just about getting rid of them, but re-using them in new decks. For example, could a player buy 4x lotus and use them, then keep the tigers for other decks? I mean a 3 cost, no threshold, 3/1 with a card draw attached is quite good - not amazing, but good.

Theres a few reasons why they might not be usable - the most obvious being the rarity symbol (grey, currently only boss exclusives and created/transformed cards) and it is something that should be clarified. Another thing is the lack of an artifact tag, yet it is colourless...

There seems to be a large grey area here, and it is valid a question as any other. It would influence the percieved value of the lotus after all, if only minutely.

I think they were unsure of that. It makes me wonder if you have to choose a faction per account rather than per champion (something that actually made WoW suffer for a few years. People could only ever see one side of the story unless they bought a new account, or went to another server entirely.)

I think this one is rather important, since it sounds like they want to have a super-server, or a web of interconnected servers.

Odds of what? lol.
1 Rare/Legendary, 3 Uncommon, 11 Common, 1 loot chest of varied rarity.

The 3 player limit in PvE is a game-priority waiting issue, they don't want people to wait more than that.

They might figure something out eventually though.

I figure they will relax a bit down the line for more players. I am hoping for 4+ multiplayer no-holds barred play types. Those are what I remember most of my time in the hobby shop - huge 10-12 player multiplayer games on one huge table, lasting hours, where even the crappy players have a chance to surprise the good players, alliances being made...

I don't care if each turn takes 3+ minutes. I just want to be able to relive this with at least friends/guildies.

The invites are attached to the account - if you merge, you get one. If you keep them seperate, you get as many as you pledged.

And some things are common sense, and others need specific answers. Thats why the people with the answers are doing what they can to answer those questions we already know, or can easily guess.

I would have expected faction bonuses to be per character. Having them per account encourages you to have two accounts which they seem to be otherwise discouraging (well discouraging with policy, not so much with handouts)

Maybe some of the faction quests require you to do it with multiple characters?

Well, it's a game design choice. Could just be that the Faction cards are designed to be OP, and they didn't want you to have multiple sides' PvE cards.

Both way have pro and con. If all char would be separated, other ppl would be unhappy like in the wow "i hate to grind reputation for a faction, if i already spent billion hours to get reputation why have i do it again only because i would like to play other character"

However, i am more like a supporter of the separated reputation of every character\hero\champion\merc\etc - it's more like RPG way, but i am understand that can be boring to unlock the iwin-cards and equipments for every char. Especially if there is rep requirements for a dungeon enter for example (by the storyline), would be a longer way to able to play endgame with a new champion.
