Tonight I obtained a red sword and shield called “The Bastion”. While yes I was very happy, I just want to breakdown what happened. Right before receiving the red item, I was getting items around 180 to 190 power, making me a little shy of 500 hero power. I had saved up a good amount of commendation chest and was around 40 as well. So with that in mind, within about an hour or so, I was at the cap of 600 hero power. I was already level 30 on my Kruber and opened an emperors chest to get the sword and shield. Also it took me about 25 to 30 chests to hit 600.
I don’t know if it was intended to boost your hero power so rapidly, but I’m not sure if it should get you such a massive increase in item levels you receive. I don’t know if will be fixed in the future or if it should be, but it just seemed a little unbalanced that I could simply raise my hero power by over 100 points in such a short amount of time
