Under rating threshold (show) The friend/foe dynamic is not that bad. However, getting the Merchants to "Ally" status is just annoying. You only have a grand total of 6 quests from them, and they start with a lower status than your opening side/class. The worst part is, the final quest doesn't actually open until you GET to Ally status, apparently (I'm at 2000+ and the quest giver still talks to me like I murdered his dog). So now, all I can do is stand around and repeatedly take out Mercenaries at +5 to my status until I finally hit 3000. It's a good game, but this one thing makes it really annoying. It makes it feel like you have to over-grind to get the quest and the achievement.

Under rating threshold (show) In the start of the game... i'm suprised that any faction would give a guy in his underwear that randomly talks to them a quest...

Under rating threshold (show) the reason why i like this games is not the abilities or the badges or the graphics, but they are good :P, but what really makes me come back and play it every time is because of the fact that you have the freedom to choose your enemies and allies, not get chosen with them by a computer or pre-made settings, you can switch anythime, and thts why i am going to give it 5/5.

Under rating threshold (show) If you've already beaten the "final" black boss and you don't get the hard badge, here's why: That's not the final boss. You have to complete one more quest, which is located in the north alliance camp near the red castle for those who had chosen the alliance and in the east shadow runner's camp near the red castle. The real final boss is on the north-west, between the two rivers. You'll probably need around lvl 35 to beat him.

Under rating threshold (show) Although getting the merchants/mercenaries to ally status takes alot of grinding, you get a decent amount of potions/xp/powerful armor that I think really makes up for it. How else would you get level 30 unless you grind?

Under rating threshold (show) By the time I had finished all the Mercenaries quests that I could get up to that point, I only had 1948/3000 reputation, so I needed 1052 rep just to be able to get up to Ally status in order to get the last quest. The only way I could do that is to just keep killing Merchant Guild enemies again and again and again only getting 5 rep per enemy even for the most powerful ones, meaning I needed to defeat a total of 211 of the most powerful enemies just to be able to get up to Ally status, and then when I had finally gotten up to Ally status and got the last quest... I had to defeat another 30 of the same type of enemies. REALLY? This was the most boring, grindy part of any game I've ever played, and I've played a lot of games. Evidently, the developer didn't test this game properly, if at all. I know that this is summed up perfectly in odomaster's comment, but it's such a big issue, I felt I had to comment on it myself.

Under rating threshold (show) I would appreciate being spawned in the town where I either saved for the last time or the one closest to where I am for the moment. It gets a little bit annoying having to walk from the town in the lower-right corner. And please, do something about the merchant faction, I am sure that I'm not the only one that finds it annoying having to grind for like 4-5 points per kill. Except that, and some other minor things, I kinda liked this game.

Under rating threshold (show) Way too much grinding is needed for reputation. After all quests are done I still needed to kill more than 500 enemies to get my ally-level reputations. :/

Under rating threshold (show) There should always be an auto save slot AND a manual save slot; or an auto save at the end of every defeated X/X enemies/boss (right after killing the last one) that comes on asking yes or no to save then. Other than that, the only other thing that's kind of irritating is that you need energy for your default basic attack. You could have programmed it to do about 10% less damage in exchange for not costing energy and I'd have been satisfied.

Under rating threshold (show) Would have been a nice game if I didn't have to kill 480 enemies just to get my "ally" status with the factions. Do some tuning on the faction reputation gain from quests and it is fine.

Under rating threshold (show) I've read some of the comments and agree that this is a good game, but the faction gains are horrible. Nobody likes to grind for hours >.>. Perhaps a sequel with more faction and better faction gains/more quests, would be pretty cool in my opinion

Under rating threshold (show) For anyone struggling because of the last batch as warrior because of mercenary reputation. Instead of Killing Red Cloaks, who stun you and make the fighting tedious, Kill Waterdancers instead (Mechants West if the Last Castle, over the river). Theyre easy to kill, they still give +4 reputation, they don't stun you and they're all melee-fighters so you won't have to run around so much. :)

Under rating threshold (show) It sucks when you have a heartstone piece on and when you save the game you just click on it and you must refresh the game. Same if you give it to quest giver and you still have the damn piece of this heartstone. Is that a bug? If yes then fix it as fast as possible please -.-

Under rating threshold (show) Merchant Guild: My task is vital to our cause. I won't share it with the likes of you! (300 kills later) Me: Okay, I killed 300 Sellswords and my reputation is 3000 now, so what's this top-secret plan? Merchant Guild: Go kill 30 Sellswords. By the way, none of the 300 you killed count because that was before we told you the plan even though the secret plan to end all plans was just to kill 30 the whole time; you really should have come to us sooner, huh? Me: What the... face-palm

Under rating threshold (show) Beating the game should save it... so you can continue to max out reputations from where you left off, otherwise it sends you to your last save, so remember people, SAVE IT before you beat the game!

Under rating threshold (show) great game other than the over grind to become allied to merchant/mercenaries and the click accuracy to kill 1 enemy when multiple are attacking you it just randomly hits 1 of them

Under rating threshold (show) Getting the Mercenary/Merchants to ally status in order to get the hard badge is just a grind feast. Hopes the creator of the game adds in a new quest for merc/merchants to reducing the grinding.

Under rating threshold (show) bad balancing for becoming "ally" -- its difficult to do it for anything beside the alliance/shadow. Being 500+ points short shouldn't happen -- it just becomes a grind at that point
