Topic: GemCraft - Chasing Shadows / Everything I need in life, I learned from Gemcraft

I learned the opposite lesson: there’s shortcuts to everything. Rather than trying your best on every level, just focus on a few easy ones that will quickly rocket your level to 2000 then bulldoze through everything.

And its the same in every gemcraft game really. Trying to maximize your XP gain on every level is just silly. You can choose to do it if you find it entertaining, but if you’re just trying to level up, that’s just a giant waste of time. There are too many maps that just suck for XP gain (unless you pay premiums). Instead, just focus on a few that are super easy and you’ll collect more XP than you’ll ever really need.

Topic: GemCraft - Chasing Shadows / Highest non-pouch wizard level?

level 2400 here. If I tried I believe it’s quite possible to get over 10000 even without a pouch.

The main thing that determines your XP is really the waves of giants that summon beacons on death. Just keep repeating the maps until you get lots of those waves, which will naturally give lots of XP.

You’ll also need to be careful about how you kill those giants. Using a gem with high chain hit is a bad idea, you’ll kill wayyyy too many giants at once, those beacons won’t have space to appear and so the XP gets wasted. Also a good idea to cast beam on your tower so it can instantly kill beacons, letting new ones can replace them.

Topic: Realm Grinder / Faceless Heritage Change

Or they could change faceless heritage such that it doesnt reset on reincarnation, BUT it is based on the number of reincarnations in which you have allied with the faceless :p. So you can only increase it once per reincarnation.

If you want to be extra evil.. you could make it based on the % of time spent as faceless during the reincarnation lol.

By which I mean hovering your mouse over your population will show a tool tip window, displaying how many of your max trimp capacity came from each housing source.

Would be very useful for determining whether Trumps are worth getting.

Topic: Technical Support / Unity suddenly using high CPU

This probably isn’t the right place to post, but since yesterday every unity game I open is taking up more than 50% of my CPU, forcing me to have to close it within a few minutes.

Does anyone know what I can do to fix this?

Topic: Realm Grinder / How useless would Elves be without an auto-clicker?

It’s mainly for gathering faction coins, which it still does ok even if you don’t click, since it boosts assistant faction coin gain rate too.

Topic: Realm Grinder / "Best" Faction

Yea the neutrals don’t match the factions they cost.

in terms of the current gameplay, its closer to

Titan = Elves (Faction coins) + Demons (Boost to high tier building)
Druid = Angel (Mana) + Fairies (Boost to low tier buildings)
Faceless = Goblin (Building spam) + Undead (Ridiculously long set up time before it gets good)

Topic: Realm Grinder / [Survey]Players Tastes & Achievements

  1. What is your favorite faction?
    Note: This is the faction you would like the most to play with. It does not necessarily coincide with the faction you find most productive or the one you played the most with.
  2. Don’t really have one. Druids perhaps.

  3. What is your least favorite faction?
    Note: This is the faction you would dislike the most to play with. It does not necessarily coincide with the faction you find most productive or the one you played the least with.
  4. Faceless. The whole faction seems designed to only work if you have an autoclicker to spam like crazy overnight to build up a ton of labyrinths. For everyone else it goes nowhere.

  5. What is your most played faction?
    Note: This is the faction you played the most with. It does not necessarily coincide with your favorite or the one you find the most productive.
  6. Angel, mainly because of all the autocasting upgrade requirements.. 20 million mana >_> <_<.

  7. What is your least played faction?
    Note: This is the faction you played the least with. It does not necessarily coincide with your least favorite or the one you find the least productive.
  8. Probably Demon, but that’s just because every demon run reaches its peak pretty quickly so it doesn’t take long before I’m ready to soft reset.

  9. What is the highest amount of Gems you collected (your current amount of Gems if you had never Hard Reset)?
  10. 35.92Qi

  11. What is the highest amount of Coins you collected (your Total Coins Gained amount if you had never Hard Reset)?

The problem is that giant waves are really where the XP is coming from. At least, the giant waves that have summon beacon on death (this doesn’t appear on reavers/swarmlings).

You really want to figure out how much you can enrage giant waves, so that when one of these beacon-flooding waves show up, you can anger it like crazy and get massive XP from killing all the beacons.

I’m going by the wording of the spell, which says the production of the least efficent building is increased based on the amount of the three most efficient ones. To me, this clearly refers to the production not the number.
Fact remains, that GB provides a 30000x multiplier now vs. a 21000 multiplier before the patch with the same building numbers.

The formula for the GB bonus is based purely on the number of buildings built for your three most-built buildings, and wasn’t changed by this patch. Either you built some buildings, or you misremembered how much the bonus was.

What Rahler said. My GB didn’t change an inch when the druid nerf came out.

Topic: GemCraft - Chasing Shadows / Tired Of Losing On The Last Wave

If a level does not allow you to get red + yellow gems, just ignore it entirely. Don’t bother wasting shadow cores or time on it. If you can’t run through it at 9x speed on looming, try to level up on a different level first.

I.e. Focus on getting XP on the levels that do have red + yellow, because the red/yellow dual gem is the real XP maker. You don’t even need any complex tactics like mana farming/gem weaving/traps/spell casting to get to level 300+. Just use a single red/yellow gem in a tower surrounded by 8 amplifiers.

Topic: Realm Grinder / Post Druid Nerf

Problem with faceless is they a stupidly overpowered if you have an autoclicker, useless if you don’t.

Their main advantage comes from the fact that spamming clicks will let you amass thousands of labyrinths, which then increases all kinds of abilities like

Call to Arms: +production based on buildings owned
Overgrowth : +production based on max buildings
Evolutive Mutation: +faction coins per second based on assistants and labyrinths
Mitosis: +assistants based on buildings owned

Not to mention a huge boost to mpregen depending on how fast the autoclicker is. So the autoclickers who are drowning in labyrinths end up drowning in cash and gems.

In contrast, if you’re playing normally, there’s no way you’ll be clicking millions of times in one game, so you aren’t going to get a lot of labyrinths. Which means all these abilities are pretty mediocre. With some set up beforehand to boost deep memory and hive mind to ridiculous amounts the faceless can become decent, but that’s it.

Again, I stated the Grand Balance multiplier is much higher, it went from x21000 to x30000, this is because blacksmith got a 100% boost, which is the third most efficient building, significantly ahead of any other now, so GB gets a big boost.

What in the world are you talking about oO? The GB multiplier hasn’t changed at all… and I’m pretty sure it depends only on the building counts, so the extra tier of upgrades does nothing to it..

Topic: Realm Grinder / Goblins are op.

You could make it randomly choose buildings based on the number of each already built.

E.g. if you have a lot more Hell Portals than other buildings, then goblin’s greed would be a lot less likely to hit Hell Portals than other buildings.

That way there’s still randomness, but it’s a lot harder to exploit simply because the bigger the gap in the building counts, the more importing you have to do before goblin’s greed hits the right building.

Topic: Realm Grinder / Race's spell suck

The race spells seem pretty useful to me?

Demon: Hellfire Blast can be a lot stronger than BF + CTA if you have a lot of trophies.
Angel: God’s Hand >>> Holy Light once you get enough mpregen.
Fairy: Fairy Chanting = 100x farm/inn/smith (which is really everything on fairy) for 8 seconds. It’s ~4 times better than Holy Light, which is just 25x on clicks for 10 seconds.
Elf: Moon’s Blessing increases based on total clicks since the dawn of time, so it becomes better than holy light eventually.
Goblin: Free buildings. Need I say more?
Undead: True night with lots of assistants is pretty sick, and can be much better than BF/CTA if you don’t have an autoclicker.

Titan: Free faction coins? Also pretty damn powerful when it hits HoLs/Monastaries
Druids: Grand Balance looks bad at first.. but it becomes sick.. oh soo sick. And well, druids get enough max mana bonuses to cast all 3 spells anyway.
Faceless: Ok Brainwave is pretty lame, but hey it lasts 10 minutes. So it’s not like you can’t cast this AND other spells together…

I don’t remember having trouble with spires before. High fire-rate gems or lots and lots of mid-damage gems are better…have they been buffed or something?

shrug, me neither. I’m assuming this is a premium thing. For non-pouch holders, we just don’t get any map with enough waves for spires to become deadly.

Topic: Realm Grinder / Goblins are op.

?_? I don’t see the problem.

Goblins can and are supposed to be able to get more buildings than anyone else.

Those buildings just happen to be useless because goblins don’t have decent production upgrades. So they can get thousands of buildings but still suck.

Topic: Realm Grinder / Lightning Strike or Brainwave?

The way I see it, you should progress through the neutral factions in order:

Start with titans when your gem count is still low (around the billions). This is because you won’t have enough money to buy enough buildings do any spell comboing. Without spell combos, lightning striking HoLs on titans beats GBing stone pillars on druid.

After you get to a decent gem count (around the trillions or more), go druids. Now you should be able to spell combo and get insane amounts of coin.

Finally, when you get to an insane gem count (I think around the Sx or more), go faceless. At this point, even druid triple cast isn’t getting you anywhere, so the only way to continue forward is to use the various lengthy build ups of the faceless to just overpower the wall with pure brute force.
