Even if he did, that was not done with my program. I told him about it some time ago but he was not interested in trying it. I wonder if there was any reason to ban him besides being a member of the same guild and being active enough to reach lv100.

Topic: Dream World / Scripters...

Well, if someone is still looking for names to hate and shame, here is one – that’s me. Got suspended for using a helper program that automates some boring and repetitive tasks in the game. Maybe I should have cared more about making its behavior “human-like” :) Anyway, writing more and more sophisticated automation tools (from a simple program to automatically fight Nahazir with healing and using dusts when necessary to a program that could grind areas like Facton War or Invasion, buy mists and dusts when necessary, sell loot, trade crystals, interact with special encounters and do a shitload of other things) kept me entertained for a long time – much longer that a game as boring as DW could possibly do. Now it’s time to apply my programming skills elsewhere. Bye everyone and have a good time :)

There is not much to know about playing DW. Grind, grind, grind and then grind even more. Spend many hours a day during weekend events grinding 5k mists a day and you’ll get into top 100 very soon. No rocket science here.

I think I’ve seen two people hitting the cap on the same mystic (FLB in that case) and getting 20% XP bonus each. One of those was myself, can’t remember exactly who was another one, maybe it was 1jaka from GDM. And it surely was not the first time someone reached the mystic damage cap, so no way to determine the real damage done and no point in keeping this “record”.

Topic: Dream World / xmas event

Why is everyone so concerned about the amount of Santas they would encounter? C’mon, in one normal weekend you can easily get hundreds of mystery boxes if you use 5k mists/day. EVERY DAMN WEEKEND. Why flood the forums with more “gimme, gimme, gimme” threads before every holiday like Christmas or Easter begging for another couple hundred? Does it really change something?

Yeah… Sure… Visionscope, weaken and copy on one ally. Would be a pretty badass one, but way too powerful lol.

I want that ally

Whether such ally would be good or bad depends on its chance to use each skill. If it only used weaken and copy with 50% probability of each, that would be cool. If it used regular attacks with a 50% probability and weaken/copy with 25% each, that would be a crappy ally.

Topic: Dream World / My Guild is Deleted. :(

C’mon folks, why argue instead of doing a simple experiment? I took a crappy alt that I occasionally used as a temporary GM for our wing guild, leveled it a bit, collected 10m coins and created a temporary guild. The experiment is illustrated below:
Step 1: Choose a suitable guild (not full, open admission, inactive)

Step 2: Merge into that guild

Step 3: Depose GM

Takeover done. Kick members, go to step 1.

P. S. Just in case anybody is wondering: when a GM is deposed, GOs have priority when choosing new GM even if they are inactive, but since they are inactive, they can also be deposed immediately after becoming GM. Not shown here because there are no GOs in this guild.

Topic: Dream World / Is the game on It's last leg?

Out of curiosity I made a rough estimate of current DW playerbase. As weekends are usually the time when the most grinding takes place, I collected the mob/PvP counters from all players I could find (>24000 total) before and after event and calculated how much energy each of them used during the last event. Just a few numbers:
2101 players with nonzero energy usage over the 4-day period (Friday to Monday). These at least killed something. Even if it was only 1 mob.
1260 players used 100 or more E. These actually played the game, even if only a little.
608 players used 1000 or more E. Fairly active.
42 players used 10000 or more E. A lot of misting.
I will not make any conclusions. Everyone is free to decide whether these numbers are large or small.

Leveled recently? When you level, bosses get stronger. They hit harder and take less damage.

Not really :) DW has >24k players in guilds (not active players, some of those haven’t been online since 2010 – just players whose accounts still exist and who are still guild members) and an unknown number of guildless players. The looter list has enough opportunities for growth.

Topic: Dream World / Any updates coming?

It’s not too much free stuff that’s killing the game but rather lack of anything worth buying with gems. I still believe a good game must have two ways of making progress – the fast one that costs money and the free one that requires tons of effort. At first DW had only one way of getting anywhere past the 50/120/32/32/32 softcap and crappy free allies – paying real money. That sucked. Rewarding players for playing a lot with stat pills and other goodies making them stronger was a reasonable improvement, but it brings another question – what is worth buying for real money now? Buying LP makes no sense, neither does buying mystery boxes – a full energy refill is more useful as it allows you to find more stuff while using that energy than you could buy for the same anount of gems. Yet even energy refills don’t look particularly attractive until you’ve used up the 5k mist stock which is a long way. So is there something that would make players say something like “Wow, I want it here and now!” and pay real money for that? I don’t think so.
BTW, how about a premium-only buff (no gems from DW welfare, kreds only!) that gives 50% bonus to autoexplore coin and xp? I bet I know at least one person who would be happy with that…

I haven’t thought this through completely, but what do you think would happen if we changed it so that all Mystics will have the same bonus? Right now guilds might be waiting until the next build phase in order to have another shot at the higher bonuses, which is contributing towards the waiting period.

Doesn’t matter at all, the difference in XP bonus is negligible. Everybody wants to be one of the first 5 guilds to build a mystic because in that case they may have a whole day to use their bonus. Being #6 is risky. Being the last one means your mystic will be down in a few minutes unless your guild is FLB.
And don’t overestimate Lolith. Even a non-gemmed lv95 player can kill her in 1E using items with high con bonuses (preferably drow of life+9). There are >100 such players already.

I have spent 20 minutes thinking about how to make people want to gem again. Here is what i thought of :)
New type of personal boss THE DARK ONE (father and leader of demon bosses)
-he has his own town
-available from level 86 for example
-at level 86 he has 500M hp and then plus 100M at level 87 and plus 110M on level 88, plus 120M at 89… you see where I am going with this, right?
-entry fee, 100gems
-1000 energy needed to rage it
-it has same chances of puzzles, chests etc. as mainland INCLUDING possessed bosses with an a addition of lvl 96+ possessed boss POSSESSED BOOGIE MONSTER (couldn’t really come up with the name xD)
-wells don’t work
-you only have to rage it once, just like normal bosses
-hits a bit stronger than lolith, insta kill after 10th attack
-and for the reward, 10 random pills
This is just an idea, what do you guys think?

The most important question is how much coin that boss would be giving per encounter :) If every boss encounter gives more than one mist price (like current instakill bosses do – 2x for Mothership, 3x for Fallen/Fortresses/Poseidon, 4x for Mystics), that would be a great place for farming coins for future misting. Of course 100 gems is a bit costly and you’d still need to spend 1000 E raging it but once you reach it, you could be grinding it slowly to make it last as long as possible and gain an incredible amount of coins. But if there is no coin reward for every encounter, it would be just a useless coin sink. You might be thinking that 10 pills is a huge amount but in fact it’s roughly equal to what an active player gets in one event day without paying 100 gems :) Last time I tried to count them out of curiosity, it was about 36 pills per weekend, that is 12 per day.

Haha, my alts have been auto-exploring for over a year now and just helping with very few bosses as their slightly active guilds need it. 400b isn’t that hard to re-obtain if it doesn’t get used much. While this purchase wasn’t mine, I was more than happy when my minorly active alt won the elf ring months in advance for 850bil coins. So if 400b makes it on here from you trolling, mine would be worse and the one you mentioned would become void. :)

I keep wondering why autoexplorers need elf rings. I guess autoexplore rewards remain the same regardless of the ring equipped, right?

Lol. You can’t even see items in BM that people really want because of level restrictions.


Sure, that’s going to be fun :) Right now I am looking for positron equipment, so once you hit lv 98, you’ll have a good chance to troll me in BM. Unless I get everything I need by that time, of course :)

if you just play hard you can get a constant heroic and genius from crystals. So the problem isnt lack of bank space, it’s lack of playing


yes playing hard can get you crystals ie gems to but H/G, I got 6 whites in one day last week, but there is much variance too, its not really that consistent. Even playing Hard, you cant maintain H/G imo even if you are just buying the 7day ones, its not realistic to get 68 gems in one weeks time every single week. thats my play experience. do you really get 68gems every week to keep H/G up?


Without event bonus coin return from misting is too low to mist a lot, so usually people just use their free E on weekdays and accumulate coin for weekend misting. This means it’s only 3 days a week when you really need genius/heroic. If you always buy them, that would be 54 gems a week. However, if you collect a full storage of mystery boxes, you are very likely to find genius, heroic or both when you open them all, this saves a lot of gems. I always have genius for the entire duration of events (heroic is far less useful, so even if I don’t find one, I don’t bother buying it), sometimes I buy an occasional E refill if I run out of coin for misting and still I am getting more gems than I spend.

I would like to see implemented that void guilds in any + can have their own tier, so totally there could be 11 void guilds per town that can get their top bonus (counting on void 0 is a tier also) on invasion so to make it more about what void you gonna stay on to get that bonus on invasion, because only the top guilds as voids is getting towns, so really, seperating like this, will help all smaller guilds to push harder to donate coins in their guild vault to get to void + something.

1. The XP bonus from winning the invasion is too low to care about. Guild XP bonuses are added rather than multiplied like personal bonuses, so for a guild with a crappy 100% XP bonus 5% more bonus from invasion results in 2.5% XP increase. Who cares about that?
2. Who would stay at Void+0 to get 5% invasion XP bonus when they can just get to Void+10 for 10% permanent XP bonus?

Speaking of invasion… How about more towns without individual contribution cap? 7 capped and 1 uncapped looks a bit unbalanced. I remember that the damage cap is there to make winning invasion a guild effort rather than allowing strong players to outdamage whole guilds but when you can do 150b damage per day and still a couple weaklings who barely do 10b per week will outdamage you in any town except Demon Gates, that just sucks. 4 capped and 4 uncapped maybe? Or better yet, have 2 winning guilds in each of the 8 towns, one determined by damage capped at 10b per player and the other one by uncapped damage, so that guilds don’t have to choose in advance whether they want to try for a capped town or an uncapped one.
