Topic: GemCraft Labyrinth / Strategy for Field C11?

vesperbot, thank you for your advice. I am currently lvl 525 so I’ll likely have to tweak my skills settings to have a G12 Y by wave 20. I’m not very skillful, but I can grind for hours so if I can’t accomplish it with skill then I’ll do it with brute force.

Topic: GemCraft Labyrinth / Strategy for Field C11?

A late update: I replayed C11 with Giants only. Settings were double monsters, double hit points, Giants only, Endurance, and everything else except Shadow Clash and WGTF. Ran up a 1337 with over 12,000 kills due to angering.

I concluded that Swarm is actually more difficult because of the low mana yield even with angering.

Here’s what finally worked: used a dual G/O at 3 G to 1 O in an 8 amp 1 tower setup. Started with a tower and four amps and built up from there.
7552 swarm killed.

Thank you. I’ll try pure limes and summoning for the mana gain.

Topic: GemCraft Labyrinth / Strategy for Field C11?

Try as I might, I can’t come up with a strategy for getting the amulet (7000 kills) on field C11. I’m at Lvl 116 so I should have the resources to do it, but after several attempts using different strategies I still can’t get more than 5000 kills.

Any suggestions will be gratefully appreciated.

Topic: GemCraft Labyrinth / I hate pay to win

The original poster could take the good time and trouble to learn to make make their own games. Kongregate has some tutorials (And they’re free). If nothing else, he or she would learn just how much work it takes to create a game.

Topic: GemCraft Labyrinth / gemcraft 2

If angering doesn’t get nerfed in GC2 I’d sure appreciate a way to select multiple gems with which to bomb.

Topic: General Gaming / [GemCraft chapter 0] Lost Amulet Guide!

Aha! Thanks, Wakboth. I knew that there must be some reward. I don’t track XP too closely within a level so that went right by me.

Topic: General Gaming / [GemCraft chapter 0] Lost Amulet Guide!

Flatty, nice catch! As long as I’m intent on trudging my way through the whole game I may as well go and pick up the amulets.
Question: is there any reward for collecting Lost Amulets?

I’m up to map #71 so I’ll finish it all right. Replays, however, are out of the question.

Topic: General Gaming / [GemCraft chapter 0] Over 3,000,000 Plays

The reason that Gemcraft Chapter 0 has over 3,000,000 plays is because it takes about half that many to get through the game. I’m on map #73, wizard lvl 134, and although I’m saving all of the Endurance battles for last it feel like I’ve been playing this game since I was twelve years old.

Topic: General Gaming / [GemCraft chapter 0] what we would like to see next in gemcraft

In the Time Siege battles, I’d like to see a small score bump based on the time remaining when you kill the last monster. Adding a significant score bonus for using less than X-number of gems in some battles (Bleeding Edge comes to mind) would add another strategic challenge to them.
