i’ve maximized my skill build on DPS and EHP/survivability.

Get blue armor of loot, you can get it by mining. Ive been using it since rank 80-90 though ive been changing parts to better ones on the way. I am rank 263 atm, and ive had no problems even with many “too-difficult-for-you”-areas.

thanks for the input, I suppose I lacked crystal mining…
any other tips for weaps and equipments? i’m only using the elite armor right now :(

Agreed on Fae’s Charm, sometimes you can just steal your opponent’s high cost creature (skybreaker, elephant) and just turn the tide of the game. After slowing it maybe making it limit the cost of creature it can cast on, or limit the targeted kingdom.

Topic: GemCraft Labyrinth / Best skills for Endurance?

Anyone have tips to beat the endurance with the lowest level possible?
I’m currently at level 70 wizard and seems never managed to pull more than 120 level on the endurance even on the easy field such as g10.

no thanks, and thanks for nothing. i remember there was once an event at kongregate where they gave every kong-player a certain amount of kreds for free, just cuz they had an account an kongregate and logged in at that event day… so i said “oh kreds for free?!, cool lets get it :) …” and tried to claim my “free kreds” but didnt came beyond that part of claiming where i had to establish a kind of “kred account” (which i never even bothered before) and then i was asked for the nummer of my credit card, not for buying kreds, but just to get a valid “kred-account” to be just able to receive that free kreds.

i dont know if that changed, but the “kongregate terms of payment” which also say that you need to have a credit card to even establish a kred-account and only ofter that to be able to even receive free kreds are very clear and my experience are that there are no free kreds without a valid credit card number.

so i’m out, cuz i dont have a credit card number, dont want a credit card cuz i would have to pay for that, and thats way more than 5$ once, and maybe wouldnt even get one for some reason lol, and just dont wanna add to these kind of milking the fandom which came to love the gemcraft series.

and what i really hate is this perfidious way with how they try to get people to pay. (already mentioned: “weather you pay or you’re the looser”). and gamers or just geeks/nerds like me are perfectionists, we dont even bother games where we know from the beginning that they wont have a chance to get even near highscore, not that we would play a game until hell freezes over, we just want to know that we could if we wanted, cuz games is what makes those of us feel good and where we dive into, but not to make us feel like loosers cuz that’s what daily real life brings just for free for the nerds of us. thats why we seek that certain kind of satisfaction in games, and avoid games where we know we wouldnt have a chance to go to the top, and so no dream to live for.

so if i dont find a way to get any kreds without having to type in any credit card number anywhere im not gonna play this game any more. there are many other also great but free games out there.

for example there is a also a game with premium content called “dream world”, i love it, and only play it becuz you have the chance to get that premium stuff if youre just patient enough, collect and spare those crystals for gems wisely and be active. and we’re not talking about time, but just about even being able to get it, just slowly over time, but just get it, or at least dreaming of getting it with a good amount of patience, no matter how long that would take.

and maybe thats the point; there are (unwritten) rules for developers to deal with premium content, one of that rules is: dont kill peoples dreams kinda “pay or suck *ss”.

Umm like I said before, there’s lots of way to pay it without using or involving any credit cards. One of it is using the gaming cards vouchers like I said. I’m using that method because I don’t own a credit card myself (I’m also agree that cc is unnecessary and evil :p ) How = Walk into any 7-11 and purchase a 5$ game card with a 5$ bill, scratch the number at the back and enter it to the gemcraft payment page. There :)

I also played dream world and yes I’m agree that you could own PVE in that game without spending any real money at all, but I doubt that you could compete for the top ranks on the PVP without spending any real cash at all :p

@herseil i didnt know that method cuz whenever i come to read something with “payment” i dont read any further.
Okay so you’re just being lazy then :)

Umm about doing something for passion yes I know what you mean. There’s tons of manga scanlators out there doing their stuff for free, even though it’s not that great compared to your firefighter job, but I know those are also hard works that takes hours to complete and I always spite for those who are doing scanlating for money because I think that they’re ripping off the original authors work for getting some money for themselves.

But hey it’s their choice, they could just go do voluntary jobs for free on the base of love and passion, or choose to do a job that pay well and still doing a good job out of it (it’s called being professional)

I must admit that this game is less fun without the premium content, but hey at least they’re still allowing peoples who don’t want to pay to play it. And now you’ve play it and you feel that non premium is suck then why don’t you pay for it then if you really like it. Okay if you don’t want to spend the money on these kind of games then there’s lots of another way to enjoy/beat the game or unlock the premium content without spending a single dime (doing surveys, free kreds, whatever stuff) But if you’re lazy on doing those stuff and yet want to enjoy the whole thing fully then whose the greedy one here?

And you say that paying the developers will make their game less better at the future because they’re going to just keep making the next game just to milk money out of it, then let the future speak. I’m sure that the fans will leave them it they’re making a no good game and trying to rip players out from it :)

And I still say that this game is a great game even it’s created on the base of the needs of payments.

@chippi umm… about the age gap between the kids or not owning a credit card or whatever stuff you say. There’s the ultimate gaming card payment method. Just go to the nearest 7-11 to purchase it and enter the scratch code behind it. I’m sure even a 10 years old kid could do it :)
