What’s better than crushing your opponent? Looking good while doing it! And Skyweaver hopes to help its players in this regard with a new set of NFTs called Legacy Hero Skins. To get these skins, you have to melt (burn) Gold cards and pay a fee in USDC tokens.
Legacy Hero Skins give players a new look in Skyweaver matches. There are fifteen (15) different skins to choose from, one for each hero. And these hero skins are not only cool, but they also provide in-game bonuses and work as an economic sink for gold cards!
Legacy hero skins will be tradeable items, although the official Skyweaver marketplace does not support them for the first month. These skins are unlimited and are only limited by the amount players are willing to pay. More hero skins will probably be sold in the future, but their distribution method might be different.
Heroes of the Legacy skin sale
Legacy Hero skins will go on sale on September 22, along with Patch 100. Purchasing a Hero skin requires burning ten gold cards and paying a certain number of USDC tokens. The cost of USDC tokens starts at $20 and increases significantly each time you buy 10 of that particular skin.
And to make things easier for players, you don’t have to spend both gold cards and USDCs. Players can choose to use Gold cards to pay the typing fee, or spend only USDC, letting the system buy Gold cards from the market behind the scenes. Any Gold cards used to buy these skins are burned, permanently removing them from the market. And since each card only has a limited number of Gold foil versions available, this system provides a very interesting balance point between the value of Gold cards and the value of legacy hero skins.
And speaking of value, Legacy skins aren’t just pretty pictures. Playing matches with a Legacy skin gives its owner a 25% bonus when earning conquest points! Conquest points provide players with weekly rewards. Players earn them by winning matches, with bonuses for using Silver and Gold cards.
