Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / Epic Trinkets

the only simple and logical solution: make each trinket stack multiplicatively instead of additively and reduce the % boost to 0.5/1/2/5 for common/uncommon/rare/epic

this way each trinket will always provide a constant overall dps boost rather than being reduced to no value as you gather more of them

using madkins example of 1200/400/100/10 trinkets

additively at 1/2/4/8 gives 1200+800+400+80 = 2,480% boost, if you get another epic it would be 2488% boost which is next to no increase (2488/2480 = 1.0032, so 0.32% boost, for an epic item…)

multicatively at 0.5/1/2/5 gives 1.005^1200*1.01^400*1.02^100*1.05^10 = 25,000,000% boost

it might look like a massive number but it will get you about 20~25 levels further since every 10 levels requires ~18000% extra dps

put it another way, when your dps is 1e100, 25,000,000% boost will give you 2.5e107 dps which wont get you much further

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / Talent to upgrade all the skills at once

you still have to scroll trough crusaders and pick out the correct upgrades from the bunch of tiny little green flashing buttons, not very pleasant

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / Talent to upgrade all the skills at once

Help make grinding easier,

every reset you have to click 50+ times to upgrade skills it gets really tedious

or even better make skills automatically upgrade once the reaquired crusader level is reached, i.e. dont have to buy it manually, it really adds nothing to the game other than extra hassle

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / Rocky Calculations

Originally posted by kokekotan:

Actually, this works out quite well, since there is a bit of a shortage of female buffers that work from adjacent spaces. (Unless there are event ones I’m missing, Sasha and Pam are it and Pam would prevent Rocky from using a second female on his other side.) So, surrounding Rocky would lose you most formation buffs. They likely set it up this way so you could balance out male buffers with female “groupies” without feeling like you’re missing out somewhere and getting frustrated.

I agree, the point of this post is to point out that it’s not the best idea to surround rocky with as many groupies as possible, which might seem like a good idea at first glance, like the suggestion here:

replace pam with jim, switch sarah and natalie, replace sarah with merci/griff/thunder king or whoever is the best buffer for you depending on their DPS all item

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / Rocky Calculations

The relative %DPS boost is the important part, raw is misleading

1st girl gives +350%, 2nd girl gives another +350% for +700% in total

but +700%(x8) is only 78% more than +350%(x4.5)

8/4.5 = 1.78

similarly with 3 girls +1050% is only 44% more than +700%

11.5/8 = 1.44

so if you had a male crusader who would give more than 44% boost you’d better off using him instead

and no I haven’t got anything wrong and your numbers even agree with me

Because each adjacent female boosts rocky’s DPS additively, and not multiplicatively. Each girls relative DPS boost to rocky diminishes as more girls are added.

Basically only the first 2 or 3 girls are worth it, although with epic gear or better the first girl is amazing

Rare Guitar: Each adjacent female +100% DPS additively

ADJ RAW REL
1 100% 100%
2 200% 50%
3 300% 33%
4 400% 25%
5 500% 20%
6 600% 17%

Epic Guitar: Each adjacent female +250% DPS additively

ADJ RAW REL
1 250% 250%
2 500% 71%
3 750% 42%
4 1000% 29%
5 1250% 23%
6 1500% 19%

Golden Epic Guitar: Each adjacent female +350% DPS additively

ADJ RAW REL
1 350% 350%
2 700% 78%
3 1050% 44%
4 1400% 30%
5 1750% 23%
6 2100% 19%

It only does 2.5%(+item buff) splash no matter how many monsters are on screen, not 2.5% per monster on screen as described, so currently it’s kinda pointless

Well that was one heck of a loot, Pam just got the 400% DPS goggles and the 100% Teamwork hat out of one box. Interesting that the goggles boost by 400 and not 200%.

100% team work is purple or blue?

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / Freeplay: Ghost Beard Vs Grimm's Tales

it’s not about chests or time, but about amount of gold needed vs area needed

both screenshots needed the same amount of gold to level nate to 950 along with equivalent cost to other crusaders using the level up all button (and hence gives same number of idols on reset), but for grim you can reach this amount of gold 5 areas earlier, assuming you are instantly killing everything, this saves 5 areas worth of time for the same idol count

Is there a reason you didn’t went with the other free play options? Honest Question, would really like an answer :)

the other two formations give less gold bonus in freeplay and therefore offer lower idol per hour

Originally posted by MarsTheKing:

Make time played since last reset and reach 200 on both, jet should be faster

Notice that nate is lvl 950 on both formations and was made so using the level up all button (hence all crusaders in the screenshot are engulfed with the lvl up animation). so both screenshots had the same amount of gold earned whilst rocket did it 5 levels earlier
