Imp Bowman - is this old reward card still worth it ?
What’s up my fellow splinterlands warriors!
I hope all of you are doing great in tour life and also playing and enjoying this fabulous game on a daily basis. The time seems to be running faster as we have already reached the middle of this current season ongoing and I guess every one of you are playing your daily focus missions and also collecting points for a bigger number of season loot chests. Thanks to the new reward system which is by far rewarding dedicated players so much more than before while limiting bot accs to farm rewards like before. So, overall, the splinter grounds are favouring the warriors way more now and all you have to do is play and win 🏆
Now, taking a look at the current crypto market, after a week of bull run, it seems that the market is slowly going back to it’s starting point. This week, we have acknowledged huge pump in ETH and BTC which helped many other alt coins to rise as well. The main dominator BTC is currently being traded for 20,972$ with a -4.09% change in price within last 24 hours where the other giant ETH is being sold for 1,502$ per unit with a +8.6% price change within last day.
Our hive however is performing exceptionally well even when majority of crypto is going down. With a recent jaw dropping pump, our dear hive token even crossed 0.6$ price mark for a time, but now it is dipping back and now selling for 0.503$ per unit with a -7.83% price decrease within last 24 hours. The price of HBD also jumped insanely high and got being traded even for 2.5$ a unit for time, but it is back to it’s pegged value of 0.963$ as it is trading right now.
Now, let's take a quick peak at the splinterlands token market to see how it's performing right now. The main in-game token DEC is still being sold for a fair 0.00052$ price per unit with a +2.34% growth in price within last day. On the other hand, the Governance token of splinterlands, SPS aka Splintershards is also being sold for cheap 0.055$ per unit with a +7.19% rise in price over that last 24 hour span and I hope this uptrend continuous for now.
Now, let me take a u-turn from the marketplace and jump into my main theme of today’s post as I have another awesome old reward card to showcase. As you have already from the thumbnail, today I will talk about IMP BOWMAN, a pretty old epic reward card from fire unit which still maintaining it’s sweet reputation, mainly in lower mana limit matches thanks to it’s 2 mana cost.
It’s an Epic Fire unit monster this monster belongs to reward edition. This monster needs only to mana to join any battle. It’s a ranged monster who has one range power, three speed and one health along with flying ability. This monster needs only 46 epic cards to reach the maximum level.
On the level 2 this monster increases it’s health from 1 to 2 along with 1 ranged attack at 3 speed along with the flying ability which it gets from it's initial level.
After it gets upgraded to the level 3, this monster increases it’s ranged power from 1 to 2 with speed 4 and with 2 health along with the flying ability.
This monster needs 23 epic cards to reach the fifth level. This monster equips a new ability of piercing from level 4 and at level 5, it gets 2 ranged attack at 5 speed with 3 health along with those 2 abilites.
After upgraded to the maximum level, this monster increased it’s health from 3 to 4 with 5 speed and 2 ranged power along with those 2 abilities that I mentioned above.
IMPORTANT POINTS ABOUT IMP BOWMAN
- First of all, It’s low 2 mana cost really helps to make a good lineup in those lower mana limit matches. It is also usable in little league ruleset matches for the same reason.
- The Piercing ability is one of the key points of this awesome monster. with this ability, if Melee or Ranged attack damage is in excess of the target’s Armour, the remainder will damage the target’s Health.
This monster's high speed will surely help to launch the first strike compare to other monsters in battlefield.
Lastly, it's flying ability will ensure to evade some of the attacks from non flyer enemy cards.
It’s a high price ranged monsters compare to others and its current price is around $3.92/bcx. On the other side the gold card price is around $200 for level 2 and the full pack is around $1089.38.
