Nymphs; as one of the most rare set of cards to obtain in the game, nymph cards are mainly known by their rarity. While some people have managed to obtain one or two of these creatures, very few have managed to obtain an entire set (one from each element) – because of this, Nymphs are generally cherished by their owners, and are rarely sold by players (except by the lucky handful who have more than 12 copies of a certain Nymph).
While the Alchemy spells can be commonly bought, their effects are generally limited to 6 uses within a duel (the maximum number of times a card can be played). However, Nymphs can allow a player to repeatedly use an alchemy effect (for cheaper, generally), and can be incredibly potent when the ability is spammed. Despite their vulnerability to CC, most nymphs have a higher HP pool to counteract damage (excluding a couple with potentially exploitable active skills). Likewise, their skill costs are some of the highest given the effects, but a Shard of Readiness can instantly remove that hindrance.
Nymphs are generally won through the lucky spin of the Oracle, but some PvP Events, Tournaments, and the PvP Leagues can also reward in-game ‘codes’ that can be refunded for a Nymph as well. No matter how you obtain one though, be sure to hold onto it, as it’s a treasure that you may not obtain for a very long time.
Specifically, the Golden Nymph has the Precognition skill. Click on the Alchemy spell to find out more about its uses.
Note: You can only get nymphs as a gift from the oracle or if you win a weekly PvP tournament.
