Topic: Midas' Gold / Lost everything

I had 2Qa gems, 700+ raid points and was about to reset. I loaded the game and found myself at the tutorial. I reloaded, still the same. 0 gems. I tried loading my Cloud save, it says I don’t have any, even though I would save every couple days. I’m extremely frustrated, been playing for quite a bit. Holyday, if you’re still around and working on that game is there any way to fix this? Check your logs and you can see my lost stats.

Hahahha, damn you vingummi!!!! I was just about to post the exact same formation (with only exception being I use Natalie instead of Jack cause she has epic +200% gold item). But yeah, this seems to be the best triangle formation atm, and with turkey’s epic gold item it’s way OP.

Edit: Yeah, I meant epic 100% gold, not 200% :P

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / Horns and Cornucopias - ability cooldown above 50%

Erika (one of the devs) has confirmed in Kong chat room 1 that there will be a talent that allows to convert extra cdr to “other stuff” – probably DPS, which was their original plan.

You should spend most of your time resetting very quickly on World’s Wake. I’m on a very similar idol count to you (I’ve got 2209), so I would guess that your wall on World’s Wake is about zone 230-240 (that’s where mine is). Depends on your gear – the epic +100% gold ones are amazing. So I run through the first 240 zones in a couple of hours, then reset (using the maximising crusader level button) and get about 60 idols. Repeat. So I would reset right at 360 – an extra day spent grinding can be a few hundred idols that could have been farmed if you play a lot.

Also, I usually do a massive buff-burn at zone 349 (or wherever is 11 zones before the target). I only have to use rare buffs max.

This is terribly boring

Well, to be fair, it is an incremental idle game. The whole purpose of the free plays is to reset and get idols. Doing few quick runs will net you enough idols to reach higher zones faster. I do 4 or 5 resets per day, getting 76-78 idols per reset, meaning I get 304-390 idols per day. I have 11k idols and my current wall in free play is at 315 (by wall I mean I’ll need more than 5 minutes to level my main DPS x25). You should really consider doing that, even if it’s boring, especially since idol/talent shop will be coming soon and we will probably need quite a few idols to spend there.

Also, spending a week+ on objectives is plain wrong…you lose way too many idols from resets that way, that would in turn let you do the objectives much, much faster. If you had spent this week in doing free play and resetting, you would probably double your idol. Dunno if you’re new to the incremental kind of games, but you’re supposed to reset as much as possible to make your progress faster. Saying that the whole reset cycle is terribly boring is like saying Call of Duty is terrible cause it forces you to aim…that’s the nature of the game!

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / Achievements interface and new achievements suggestion

Originally posted by zigmoond:

They should also add achievements like:
“Use X buffs in total” with rewards increasing the effect of the buff (like duration +10%)

Oh, that’s actually a pretty cool idea!

Also, yeah hofdiddy, I would love for the achievements to be grouped. In my suggestion (about campaign specific achievements and general achievements) there would be expandable icons. For example, there would be an icon for the first campaign and once you click it it expands and reveals/hides all the achievements for that campaign. Would be so good to have them all grouped in one place.

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / Achievements interface and new achievements suggestion

I’m against event-specific achievements as well. However, there are currently some achievements that are for the previous events, and those who missed them cannot complete them atm. In my suggestion for the above campaign-specific achievements events are not included.

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / Achievements interface and new achievements suggestion

Hey all. I was checking the achievements tab (you know, the chaotic purple ribbon one?!) and remembered that Erika had said in the past that reworking it is in their list. So I came up with the following idea, which is nothing great but would be nice since we would get some extra buffs and it would add a great deal of variety in our gaming experience.

Make each campaign have its own achievements! I was thinking the generic ones, like reach area 100/150/200/250/300/X for EACH campaign, as well as specific ones like:

(NOTE: THESE ARE MERELY RANDOM SUGGESTIONS)

“use a formation with X, Y, Z crusaders in freeplay and reset in level X”
“reset in under X minutes”
“gain X idols from resetting once in this campaign”
“gain a total of X idols from resetting in this campaign”
“reset using all of the crusaders” (meaning you need to reset quite a few times changing your formation each time a bit to make sure you include them all at least once)
“reset with all crusaders having X levels”
“reset with all crusaders having less than X levels”
“buy a total of X crusader levels across all runs”
“open a total of X chests across all runs”
“reset in level X without using a single buff/opening a single chest”
“get at least 1 EXP point in X number of crusaders”
“click X thousand times in a single run”
“reset after leveling up only a max of X crusaders”
“kill X number of monsters/bosses in a single run”
“kill X number of monsters/bosses in total”
“kill X number of monsters/bosses by clicking”
“spend a total of X online time in this campaign”
“spend a total of X offline time in this campaign”

or something like that. It’s not game-breaking and it’s meant for fun. The purpose is to give us goals so that we don’t just mindlessly farm idols in free play but add variation in the formations we use, ***IF*** someone feels like completing any of the achievements. We don’t have to do them, just like we don’t have to complete the current achievements. However, I’m thinking that once someone unlocks ALL the achievements in a single campaign he should get a good reward. Like one of the following:

X rubies
X jeweled chests
X idols
Random epic gear(s)
Permanent X% buff to both DPS and gold in all campaigns (probably around 10%)
Permanent X% buff to DPS and/or gold for this campaign’s free play ONLY (50% ?)
Permanent increase to silver chest drop rate for this campaign’s free play ONLY

Devs could pick one of those, or we could have a “lucky wheel” kind of thing that includes all of the above and we get a random one. Note that each campaign should have something like 15-20 achievements (both generic and specific) so it would require putting quite a bit of effort into unlocking them all. It’s not meant to be done in a couple of days/resets. If you think the rewards are OP, they are merely suggestions, I would love to hear more suggestions for both rewards and achievements! Needless to say that the Achievements tab interface would need some reworking and polishing as well, something like have expandable menus for each campaign instead of having them all listed randomly there.

What do you guys think?

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / Getting more gold than normal from time warp is easy, but what about from...

Originally posted by hofdiddy:

no, no, no! listen! when you use a gold buff, like gold boom, you find 25% more gold. if you leave what level your on after doing so, then look at your warp buffs, the numbers go up a lot more! but…my question is… what if i use a gold buff, like gold boom, hell, lets use one common, one uncommon, on rare, and one epic gold buff to increase it 100%. then leave a level, enter a new level, look at your warp buffs, wow, they are way up there now…but..if you open a chest, will game give you less gold from chest than your warp buffs, after stacking all the gold buffs to 100%?? I have to try it and see!!! chest rare gold, and uncommon gold, should give more than the time warp will give you!

It has already been answered, but I want to say it one more time for emphasis. Gold buffs do NOT affect time warps. Whether you use a gold boom or not, the time warp will give you the same amount of money.

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / blow all cash before you die.

Originally posted by EvanBatter:

Especially since the new “Swap” thing, were you can and should upgrade your inactive (non-swapped) Crusaders too for idols, a “spend all cash on levelling” button would be really helpful.

Inactive crusaders do NOT give idols if you buy levels. Only the active/swapped crusaders count towards crusader levels for idols. So if you use Pete and not Jason, even if you buy 2k levels for Jason you will not get more idols.

moshi, that’s assuming that after the event his items won’t get put into the normal chests

It’s IMO more likely that the event will be repeated soonish. Making the items appear in normal chests would be slightly annoying towards those who tried hard to obtain them during this event, possibly wasting their time warps to get more tickets…

That doesn’t make any sense. I would imagine every one of us is trying to get the gear, and would continue doing so after the event. Obviously the gear must be added to regular chests afterwards or the new crusaders could eventually become useless. Also, it wouldn’t be a good idea to keep repeating the same event over and over. What is “wasting time warps”? I always just use them right away, it’s only a matter of time. They’re not some godlike items that must be savored. Whenever you use them, the relation to your current progress is exactly the same.

Lol, time wraps are not “godlike items” but you should save them for events like this. As it is you can do 1 free play per day. Using time wraps now you can get way more tickets and do way more free plays, which means more carnival silver/jeweled chests. If anything, time wraps were made for instances like this.

Also, pete/monkey gear will not be added in normal chests after the event ends. Alyniana said that they will bring back the carnival chests in a sale “at some point”. If gear were to be added in normal chests, they would have absolutely no reason to do a carnival chest sale in the future.

First campaign for me. I have 2k idols atm and in 1h40m I can get to level 170 instakilling everything, giving me ~40 idols and ~10 chests in average.

One silver chest didn’t count at all (I went from 217 to 218 twice, without opening any chests in between). Free play, World’s Wake.

I do not question your credibility, I’ve read quite a few of your posts. It’s just that it’s been some time since the game was first released and some plans they had in store may have changed. Anyway, didn’t mean to sidetrack the OP and make it all about rubies. I’ll PM alyniana and see if I can get an official rubies/idols response. Thanks anyway!

You realise that they confirmed that rubies will only be used to buy chests, right? lol

Where was that confirmed? Are we 100% sure tha rubies will have absolutely no use in the future other than for buying chests?

On opening a chest à the first level, before any monster kill… I wanted to have gold for direct idle without any click…

2) When you select to open a chest just at the moment of your crusader go to the next level, the monster of next level nevers come.

1) Not a bug. With no DPS giver, there is no gold. We may or may not change that.

2) Thanks for the report. It’s on our bug fix list.

Hey alyniana, just wanted to ask this, since you mentioned it here. So, gold in chests depends on current DPS, on current level or on gold gained over the past 1 minute? Thanks in advance, sorry for interrupting the bug thread!
