If you recently started playing Skyweaver or planning to play you might have come across different types of cards and might be wondering what these are. What are the differences between base, silver, and gold Skyweaver cards? Are any of them more powerful? Do they bring any utilities over base cards? So let’s answer the differences between them.
Are Silvers and Golds More Powerful?
To understand the difference between base Skyweaver cards and Silver/Gold cards, we should have some basic information about what type of game is Skyweaver and what it offers to its users. Skyweaver is a Play-to-Own blockchain game that offers true ownership of the items that you earn in the game and allows you to trade those items. If you want you can sell, buy, or transfer them to another user.
The main difference between Base cards and Siver/Golds is, that Silver and Gold cards are tradeable, but Base cards are not tradeable. So, you can trade the silvers and golds you have, if you want you can sell them or you can buy them.
Besides their appearance, they don’t provide any advantage to their users in a match. In Skyweaver there are 3 versions of the same card; Base, Silver, and Gold. So in essence they are the same card with a different colored frame surrounding them. Gold and Silver cards are not stronger than base cards, their frames just look different and they are tradeable.
Now you may ask, if they are not superior to base cards in terms of power and do not provide any advantage during matches, what are the purposes of these cards? What are the differences between Silver and Gold? Let’s talk about the purposes and benefits of Silvers and Gold Skyweaver cards.
What Are The Uses of Silver Skyweaver Cards?
Currently, Silver cards have four main uses. Firstly, they can allow you to build a deck you want much quicker if you haven’t already unlocked the base version of the cards you need. In Skyweaver you can unlock all of the cards for free just by playing. Every time you level up, you unlock a new base card. You don’t unlock duplicates in Skyweaver, so it is guaranteed that it is going to be a new card. However, the card that you unlock is currently random, so you may not get the card that you need for your new deck. Here silver cards come to the scene. From the game’s market, you can purchase silver cards that you need to build the deck you want, or you can directly purchase decks if you go to Market -> Decks. Please note that each Silver card has a different value in terms of real-life currency, in Skyeaver’s case USDCe, which we can say is the crypto equivalent of US dollars.
The second use is they allow you to play the Conquest mode in which you can earn Silver and Gold cards as rewards. To play Conquest mode you either need to purchase and spend one ticket or you can give one 1 silver card instead of a ticket. In Conquest mode if you win once, you win a silver card, if you win twice you get 2 silvers and if you can win 3 times you get 1 silver and 1 gold card.
The third use is again related to the Conquest mode. You can unlock a treasure chest by playing this mode which contains a reward. The more you play the conquest mode the more points you get for unlocking your chest. Each silver card in your deck grants +1 point to your conquest points that you will get per match. So basically, you can upgrade your chests faster if your deck contains silver cards.
The last purpose of Silvers is to be cosmetic. Their frames look different in a match. If you are someone who enjoys having cosmetics in games, having silver cards can be a nice way to make your cards look different on board and they are much more affordable when compared to gold cards.
What Are The Uses of Gold Skyweaver Cards?
Gold Skyweaver cards have similar use as Silver cards but there are a couple of differences between them. Firstly, you can’t use Gold cards instead of tokens to enter conquest. However, you can sell them and purchase tickets if you prefer. Gold cards are more expensive compared to Silver cards and they are harder to get. All of the base cards have their silver versions available in the game, however, each week different gold cards become conquest rewards and they become available in the game over time by this method.
Similar to silver cards they grant conquest points but instead of 1, each gold card gives 3 points. If you prefer you can purchase available gold cards from the market or the players and add them to your deck. Finally, they have the cosmetic benefits. They appear with a gold frame in matches and have shiny foil effects when you hover over them. Gold cards can be representative of your success in conquest mode.
