From scratch to GFL #68 (100$+) w/ Alpha card giveaway

in Splinterlandslast year

Welcome to my "From Scratch to GFL" Series episode number 68.

This is a series that I started as a journey to see how long it will take me to get from scratch to a Gold foil legendary card in Splinterlands
I have allowed myself two level 2 summoners that I delegated from my main account.
At the moment the cheapest GFL is The GLORIDAX GUARDIAN card at $119.99

Let's begin with the episode

Season Rewards

Only 5 chests unfortunately, because I have been super busy with finding an university to go to.
Finding a school to get into is a nightmare.

Our quest for today is

The Water Quest

Splinterlands market has been crazy these past few weeks.
Card prices have gone up to the sky.
Can't wait for SPS airdrop to be released. I have around 1,000,000 airdrop points on my main account.

Quest Rewards



  • 15,000 Collection Power (Enter Silver League)
  • Contessa L'ament (To lvl 2) [Then all splinters would have a lvl 2 summoner]
  • Optain a Gold Foil Legendary card (End Goal)


That's actually so crazy that with just 68 days of progress on a fresh splinterlands account (with a really small exception) I have managed to create a 100$+ valued collection.
I have gotten so attached to these cards I don't know how I am going to sell all of them to get just 1 Gold Foil Legendary card.
I have collected 209 Cards and It's going to be tough exchanging most of them for just 1 card.

Maybe I'll just overshoot enough to get to keep my more loved cards
I will wait for new edition to pick up a cheaper GFL

You could help me decide how I acquire my GFL
and in the progress win This card

wow, that's really cool!

Since you’ve been going from scratch, does that mean you’re not putting any extra money/anything into the account aside from the 2 summoners?

Yes I just delegated 2 summoners and rest has been collected trough gameplay.

This is a cool concept! Just curious, about how much time would you estimate that you play each day?

On the account I complete daily quests and maybe sometimes do a couple of games extra.
So it's a relatively low effort account.

I like your idea of waiting until Chaos Legion is released and trying to pick up a cheap GFL then. But you better not wait until after Land is released because rumor has it that GFLs will be in great demand to make the Land more profitable.

Yeah, I need to time it between Chaos Legion and Lands if possible.
Hopefully Chaos legion cheaper GFL's will be at least down to like 70$-80$ for at least a brief moment.

This is so interesting!! I am a free-to-play account but I join do join giveaways regularly. According to peakmonster my account is at a GF legendary now. I played for about five months.

I'll take a gold dragon over a rusty android :)
go splinterlands and thanks for your support, upvoted!

I can't offer any advice since I'm new but that's really interesting.
I also can't sell my cards due to attachment lol I feel ya

I would wait for Chaos Legion. Patience is a virtue as they say!

renting cards for end season profits yes?

Sounds like the best way to profit yeah :D

Count me in pls

It's interesting have things are changing so fast whie you're doing this. The GFL is getting further away (in price) but, at the same time, the cards you earn are worth more.

Easiest would be to just pull one out of a reward chest. 😂

If I just pulled a GFL, that would be my favorite way to end the series :D

waiting for chaos legion for cheaper market would be the best choice. @chinotek

Keep wishing to pull a gfl from reward chests, haha I'm newb so this is what I'll most likely do.

That would be my preferred way to end the series :D

Is it a good idea to rent cards at the beginning of the season too?

Don't know, but maybe at the beginning of the season, there is a bit less competition to rent cards.

I hate when I receive potion

Nice posting

If the cheapest GFL is around 100 euro and if i am being quite frankly honest, i think you should sell your outstandingly beautiful 2008 Saab 9-3 vector and just buy 30 of the GFL's and let them go up in price more than your Saab ever would :)

But I like my saab :(
