Firstly, just wanna thank Jared for the post and the reply fix, and also the Twitch mods (particularly MonolithicTruth, thanks buddy! ). I can sorta infer from the info we have but I just need to double check.
Is there any limitation to the amount of Mirian we can earn via playing? Anything that would stop us from being able to buy market items once we've finished all the missions etc?
Thanks again for the extra effort there all

Also, I wanted to talk about the price or the cost of the Gold/Mithril war chest
(Just want to know if you guys have a set price for them or not if so would like to know, would be great)
I want to get a Mithril war chest, just want to know the price for one chest since its just Orcs and some training boost in it
I don't really want to spend like 20$ just to get one Mithril chest since you know
(Its just Orcs, so if they die....) Like is it even worth it?
The reason, I'm not sure about this is (It feel like its not something we get to keep permanantly beside Talion gears)
If the price isn't too much, I think it can be overlook but I just hope maybe there's a way to make it idk how to explain it but you know
(Something to help us feel like we get to keep it)
I don't think anyone want to be like
"**bleep** I just spend like 50$ on these War Chest full of Orcs and they all die and yeah I got bunch of Gems and Gears from em but they're all gone"

You get those only from the Warchests. So you'll have to at least spend Mirian to get them.
Orcs will spawn with all the potential abilities that you can get from the Training Orders. Liek a fire sword or gang of archers.

@MonolithJared Wouldn't the addition of microtransactions break a portion of the nemesis system and game if you can just craft your army out of legendary packs instead of searching for the special uruks to build up your army through dominations and greatly affect the difficulty by just buying top of the line gear?

When you open a warchest, the orcs will be around Talion's level.
For the legendary orcs, i'm not 100% sure. We may have them at higher levels. I'll have to double check that.
as for legendary orc "obtainment" we'll talk about that later.

We don't know the $ to gold value yet. We haven't decided.
You could wait, however it doesn't really matter. You'll be getting higher leveled orcs playing the game anyway. So you may prefer to ignore the feature, or use it to cycle through the nemesis system.
You get chests and training orders only through the market.
Chests aren't reusable, but they stay with your account. So whatever you leave in your garrison can be used in another playthrough.
it's okay to reask this question! Lots come in

@MonolithJared Also what is the drop rate of rare/epic/legendary gear/captains? I am concerned about the balance of the occurence of these whether it is designed to push those to the microtransactions by making the game too hard/unfair for those who play naturally to get decent gear/captains during normal play to progress through the story. when microtransactions are added It is a fine line on how to balance these. whether it becomes pay to progress or not necessary. It needs to be enough to add benefit to make some want to do it but not enough to give those who don't a disadvantage.

Happy to help
Mirian is plentiful. There isn't a limit. You can get lots if you play with Marauder Overlords and some other Maruader stuff .
Also missions provide mirian, destroying gear provides mirian. So lots of options post endgame.
A good mental benchmark, a Fortress upgrade costs about 1000 mirian, and a silver warchest costs 1000 Mirian.

I've posted my opinions all over Twitch chat but I'm gonna weigh in here too. As these micros are only a kind of 'speed boost' and do not withold any content from the game, I don't see the problem and I'm in favour. There's nothing you can't do without the micros that you could do with, so it can't be harmful to the game in any way. However, and I can't emphasize this enough, my stance would change drastically if content becomes witheld by microtransactions (and no, I'm not talking about DLC)
