  1. need more ways to earn mithril w/ in game play

  2. I’m not sure about that. Mithril pays for Kabam to build this awesome app. I play free and just happy getting so much without needing any Mithril at all. There are some high ranking free play alliances so if you’re patient and spend enough time playing you will get there in the end. Buying Mithril is great for people who are time poor or can’t wait to race to the top of the leaderboard.
