Alternative Ways To Get Free Varium For Epic Duel

Aside from the original 3 methods listed in the free varium tutorial, there are many additional methods you can use. In this tutorial, I'll show you 3 new ways to get free varium without doing a lot of tedious offers.

#1 Earn Money Uploading Files With ShareCash (read below)
This is an easy way to get varium, but it will take some time. When you upload a file at ShareCash, you will earn actual money when someone downloads that file. In order to download your file for free, the person needs to fill out a short survey. Upon completion of this survey, you will earn up to $2.40 for that one download. I use this dollar figure because that's the most I've personally earned for a single download. When you earn $10 in a month, you will be paid via PayPal between the 15th and the 25th of the next month. Here's my earnings.
Tip: If you use the HideMyIP software it's possible to download your own files multiple times to increase your earnings. I haven't tested this, but in theory it should work. Feel free to test this theory and let me know if it works for you.

#2 Earn Points With Lockerz And Get A $300 PayPal Credit (read below)
Lockerz is a unique social networking platform that allows you to earn points for uploading pictures, watching videos, and interacting with friends. You can then redeem those points for cool prizes like an Xbox 360 or a $300 PayPal credit. I recommend getting the PayPal credit and using that money to get varium. The only catch to this method is that you must wait until Lockerz have the prizes in stock before you can redeem your points for them. That means there's no telling when you will be able to get the money. Here's a look at my earnings (bottom-right) so far.
Note: The fastest way to earn points is to watch videos. I recommend going for the videos that credit the most (250 PTZ). You can watch each video at least 3 times and still earn points.

#3 Get Paid To Like Facebook Pages With RylcoLikes (read below)
RylcoLikes is perhaps the easiest of these methods to do. You simply register an account, link it to your Facebook page, and start liking pages. Despite being easy to do, it's more difficult to earn money because each "Like" only pays you $0.01. Fortunately, the payout minimum is now $5.00 and you can earn more with referrals. TIP: RylcoLikes works on a first-come-first-served basis. After a page gets the required likes, it's removed from the list. To make sure you don't miss out of easy money, I recommend logging in at least once daily to like newly added pages. Watch how easy it is.

Out of all three methods, number 1 is the best option. Although it may involve doing a survey to download, it pays well and there is no limitation to the amount you can earn. Remember, the money you earn is yours! You can do whatever you want with it. This includes buying varium. If you have a question about this tutorial, please post it in a comment below.

Getting Free Varium At BattleOn - Viewer's Q&A

The fastest method to get free varium is completing offers at the BattleOn website. I made a tutorial video some time ago, but did not get into detail about the key aspects of this method. Since the release of the tutorial, many viewers have had a lot of questions that I feel should be addressed. Here are the most frequently asked questions.

Which offer program is the best?
This answer is subject to change as offer programs change their policy from time to time. For example, Peanut Labs used to reward 450 bonus points for every 5 offers completed in 24 hours. This made it my favorite program at the time. Recently, they've removed the bonus reward feature without any prior notice that I'm aware of. Some offer programs are even removed entirely like OfferPal. Despite this, the current favorite is Super Rewards(SR). They typically have good offers that credits on time. If an offer didn't credit me on time, I simply reported it and the SR staff credits my account within 2 days during business days.

How do I find the right offers? You know...the ones that credit me!
Finding the correct offers is a little tricky if you don't know what to look for. The most important thing to do is read the fine print or else! Here's a list of good attributes to look for. Keep in mind that all offers you attempt must be in the "free offers" category!
  • Submit your email - Offers that only require the submission of an email. (easy)
  • Register and confirm your email - Credit after clicking confirmation url. (easy)
  • Install app on Facebook - Create a fake Facebook profile for these. (easy)
  • View the result page (quiz, etc) - Prepare to take a screen shot of these. (easy)
  • Go to the final page - Many of these offers will need to be reported. (medium)
  • Complete a survey - Takes some time, but if done correctly it will credit. (hard)
Here is a list of other types of offers you might come across. I DO NOT recommend these due to privacy and security concerns, but knowledge is to be free for all so here they are.
  • Auto/Life Insurance - Not recommended, but can be done. See below.
  • Loans - NEVER EVER DO THESE OFFERS!!! Read the fine print if you don't believe me.
  • Credit Reports - Your Social Security # will be required. (NOT recommended)
  • Credit Cards - Also requires your SSN. Never do this unless you want DEBT!
How do I complete insurance offers and get credited?
As I mentioned above, insurance offers are among the types of offers I don't recommend. However, they can reward a large amount of points if done correctly. Please note that insurance companies are serious about finding new people to rip off customers and they want real people to apply. Because of this, many have implemented numerous security features to protect their businesses from uninterested applicants us. When you do insurance offers, try to remember the layout of each website's registration form as well as the name of the website. Most of these websites use the same database/registration program. That means you cannot use the same info twice even if the second time is with a different website. You'll notice the patterns after a while. The trick to getting around their security checks is to use different, but real, information to register each time. That includes name, address, email, vehicle information, and phone numbers. The only information that should be your real info is the phone number. One of the security feature in most insurance offers is an identity verification. This is done by asking you to call a 1-800 number from the phone number you entered during registration to get a 4 or 5 digit PIN. Using a fake phone number will not work on these offers.

I've completed an offer, what do I do now?
After completing offers, keep the window/tab open until it credits you. If the estimated time passes and you are not credited, take a screen shot (press "prt sc" on keyboard, then click "paste" in any image editor software) of any page that could show proof of completion. Depending on the offer, this could be the result page, final page, confirmation email message, or the page shown after confirming an email. After saving the screen shot of your proof, close the window/tab of the offer and report it.

An offer didn't credit me. How do I report it?
The process of reporting offers differ from one program to another. Read the text below the offer program buttons for instructions on how to report offers in the currently opened program. Here's an example. In this example, using Super Rewards, after clicking the "Get Help" button you will click the "Help" button on the right of the offer you wish to report. On the next page, click "Continue to the offer inquiry page". After that, fill out the form with all the necessary information. If you've taken a screen shot of your proof, upload it to a file hosting website like twitpic and include the direct url of the image in the message box. Submit your inquiry and wait for a response via email. In some offer programs, you will need to reply to the email sent to you and provide your proof that way. Other programs allow you to upload your screen shot directly to them instead of using a file hosting site. After reporting a few uncredited offers, you will know what to do. Note: I've been told that PeanutLabs don't credit reported offers. I'm not sure if this is true, but I'll let you know in case you're wondering why they haven't credited you for offers you've reported.

That's all for now. If you have a question that you would like to be answered or if you have any feedback about this post, please leave a comment below. I'll respond, if needed, as soon as possible.

Preparing For Epic Duel Delta Release (6/29/10)

That's right! The Epic Duel Gamma Evolution will soon end! With Delta just around the corner, many players are scrambling to get ready. What should you be doing? Here are a few tips on how to prepare for Epic Duel Delta.

Collect all Gamma items, they go RARE!
If you missed out on Beta items, like me, then you know how it feels to be wishing you had certain items. This is your chance to get all the Gamma gear before they are gone forever!
All these are labeled as RARE items. Collecting rare items will also increase your rarity score. When your score reaches 25,000 you will earn the Treasure Hunter achievement.

Add strong players to your buddy list!
In Delta, the long awaited 2vs1 NPC battle mode will be released. You and a player in your buddy list can team up against powerful NPCs. That means you're going to want a lot of strong friends. *coughs :)

Accumulate 10,000 or more BattleOn points
Let's face it, promotional items are always the best at the time. There's no telling what powerful new promo weapons, robots, and/or other items will be released. To make sure you're ready for this, you want to get as much BattleOn points as possible before Delta. Save your points until you reach 10k, then get the 10k varium package. If you cannot afford to buy BattleOn points, learn how to get free varium.

Save enough varium(3,000) to switch classes twice
With 3 new classes being released, there will be a frenzy among higher levels players to test them out. Each hoping to gain an advantage in battle. This is the perfect opportunity to play wisely. Instead of rushing into any class, wait a while and see how other players use them. If you are defeated consistently by one of the new classes, consider switching to that class. This will save you a lot of time, varium, and possibly credits. If things don't work out the way you thought it would, then you'll have another 1.5k varium to switch back to your original class or to another.

Battle a lot, especially during Power Hour, and save Credits
Since you never know what awesome new weapons will be released in Delta, you want to accumulate a lot of credits. You can use them to buy new weapons, or enhance your new promo weapons.

Here's a look at what to expect in Epic Duel Delta.

That's it! Now start preparing for an Epic release on June 29th. I know I am.

Epic Duel No Longer Available On This Blog

"Oh nooo!" If this was your first thought, be cool and let me explain. -.-' For a long time, Epic Duel made it's game available to play on other websites through social discovery platforms like HeyZap. In fact, I discovered the game while making a website at, one of the publisher websites that uses HeyZap to make Epic Duel available to it's users. Since I started this blog back in October 2010, I've been a HeyZap publisher and have been using it's widget to make Epic Duel available to my readers. Unfortunately, Epic Duel discontinued it's distribution through this medium. Therefore, you will no longer be able to register or play the game on this blog. If you registered your Epic Duel account with the widget on this blog, then you will need to get your Artix Entertainment Login. To do this, you can request your login information directly, or use the "Email My Login Now!" button in the widget. Be sure to get your login details asap, I will be removing the widget soon. Also, all "Play Now" links will be redirected to Epic Duel's official website.

Update: What's Going On With King Drekon's Blog?

If you've been wondering why there hasn't been frequent posts lately, wonder no more. A lot has been going on recently and I can hardly find time to play Epic Duel let alone update the blog. I've been working on a few software projects, developing a new website, and putting the pen to the paper on some other cool ideas I've had for a while now. Don't worry, this doesn't mean I'll stop posting here. It just means I'll be doing less posting. With so much going on in Epic Duel, I've turned to my Facebook Page to post all the major updates and news. Saving the truly EPIC stuff for the blog.

Epic Duel Update: New Weapon Celtic Cleaver

This post is overdue by 2.135 days. Check out my Facebook Page for faster updates. With that said, feast your eyes on the soon-to-be legendary weapon. The Celtic Cleaver!
As the image shows, this weapon gives the wielder a 7% Chance to Connect (hit) when striking an opponent. Effectively reducing a max Shadow Arts to a mere 3% Chance to Block. Visit Zedmyr at the entrance of Bazaar to see the stat mods on this Seasonal Rare weapon. You can buy it for 20,000 Credits and 1,500 Varium, or get it free with a purchase of the 10k Varium Package. Can't afford the varium package? Try these methods to get free varium.

Also, if you have a question or concern about this weapon, share it in this Celtic Cleaver discussion on the Epic Duel forum.

Epic Duel Update: New NPC Zedmyr Level 50?!

OMFG!!! That's what you're gonna say when you see the new NPC Zedmyr. In the recent update, Gamma Evolution 1.1.3e, Nightwraith revealed that Epic Duel will be introducing Quests in the near future. Giving players the ability to collect items from defeated opponents and the environment. In addition, BAZAAR, the place next to Mirv has been opened to the public. Currently, what lies on the other side is none other than Zedmyr, the level 50 NPC. Does this mean that new levels will be opened up beyond 32? I sure hope so.

Ultimate Bounty Hunter Build + Free Varium

Looking for the ultimate bounty hunter build? Then look no further. Below, I reveal the most powerful 1vs1 build for level 32 bounties. This build grants me the ability to get up to 20 wins for every 1 loss. In fact, it's such a good build, I only know of one weakness...a high strength build mercenary with luck on his side. Of course, this ultimate build requires the purchase of varium weapons and armor as well as enhancements. If you don't have varium, read this post to see how to get free varium. Here's a taste of what the build looks like. Watch the video below to see it in action.
The video resolution is small. You may need to watch it in full screen to see the text better.

Here's another, more effective, 1vs1 build that will help you get more wins with ease. This one is a +5 Focus build with high technology. Allowing you to adapt to ANY battle strategy your opponent might use.

Overlord Drekon Defeats George Lowe

After many failed attempts, I finally beat George Lowe. Unfortunately, my mercenary account just couldn't do the job so I had to change classes to bounty hunter. With new frost weapons, high dexterity and max shadow arts, I was able to take down the space age goliath with ease. Watch the video below to see how it was done. At the end of the video, I reveal the exact build used to defeat George Lowe.

Did you "C" how many blocks I got?
