oh i was thinking of running higher realms actually to get more from battles. and maybe playing with pandemonium tokens if the realm is right and crystal/brimstone is close to 0 anyway (hope they cant get negative :P)
but other than that was thinking maybe i overlook something.
but we ll see the new patch mechanic that allows to summon with high heredity based on mages level. guess should stop breeding for a while and just mess with new summon batches to uncap main team

edit: dammnit i got it all wrong, summoning creatures in the brazier have nothing to do with new patch, it was referring to summons in battle. heh well.
P. Tokens can indeed be negative resources, and when they are, it HURTS. I don't use them anymore, due to that. The negative resources seems to come up much more frequently than the positive ones. Out of a batch of 100 I used (still small sample size), I got positive resources once, and negative resources 5 times.

If you mean can your resources go below 0, the answer is no.

The runes help a bit, but I honestly find most of my resources stem from the random piles you get from chests. And you are correct; the rune cost to swap runes makes the resource runes not really worth it.

I'm pretty much forced to run lower, trivial realms in order to grind for resources.

Im completely starved on brimstone/crystal/granite, i sometimes dump excess of power to brim/crys, but thats just not doing it - +25% runes help a bit ofc, but considering 3k ess swap cost you should think 3 times before changing runes.
but we are talking now getting 100-150 ish per battle, maybe 2x that in itherian.
i think the answer could be fight higher monsters, but i guess it will be a long long way till realm 250+ ? or ith 150+ of starvation before battles will start to pay for breeding

so maybe im overlooking some stuff?
