I want an auto-level checkmark on the crusaders that would level a crusader asap. Only one crusader could be checked at any given time. Maybe as a talent?

Yes!!

“Cursed Treasure” (Area 450) – 22,500 Idols

FYI: With almost 27K idols, good equips, i gave up because it got ridiculous for me and I was still 20 levels away from goal. I did use some buffs and chests to get me there but my idol farming was taking too much of a hit for me to continue.

I did add a warning about clicking/chest at the top. I think the estimate right now for “Not in Kansas Anymore” is still okay for now. You seem to be only at 1-2 EXP and the last few levels would be have been much easier if you have a few more EXP, or if you clicked a bit at the end.

Excellent. Thanks for putting this together!

If your guide assumes people using clicker formations, then you need to say so. I absolutely don’t.

I seem to have a problem posting pics, will add that in later.

Yeah, how many hours were you on that objective? If chest were still helping you out a lot, then it doesn’t seem like you were on it for long? But I will add something that the harder quest require a few chest and buffs.

If you update the post with this explanation then the values listed will be more meaningful. In any case, for sake of completion, here is my formation for Not In Kansas Any More. I did a test comparing my WW vs. Hermit — and Hermit seemed much more impressive with this objective. “http://i.imgur.com/pt8aKLH.jpg”

“Big Phony Wizard” (Floor 200) – 4,000 Idols

I completed this with approx. 7000 Idols. I have all event crusaders and good gear (many epics but no golden stuff). I had to use many chests to get through the last 20 areas. It was even worse when I tried it with 5,000 Idols. I recommend upping your number for this objective — maybe 6K?

Hmm Sotlat, could you show me a picture of the formation you were running? JW cuz its a brand new formation for you so maybe it wasnt optimal.

4k Idols for that one with THAT many crusaders should honestly be pretty easy and 7k should have been a cake walk. Also how long did it take you? As the missions get harder that it takes longer. I see that you didn’t use any clicker buffs or boost at all so that would have made the last 20 lvls a lot faster.

Topic: Kongregate / Winter '15 Suggestion Thread

Apologies for not making a fancy example and just writing out the suggestions.

1. Place the date/timestamp to the right of the name.
This info is not required with normal use of chat but when it does become needed, it’s very simple to correlate name with timestamp.

2. Always place the message below the name.
This is for consistency so that messages always appear in the same spot making normal chat conversation easy, without having to shift your visual focus for short msgs vs. long msgs.

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / Skipping the first levels

I have a practical suggestion that makes things easier and doesn’t “break” the game. What is repetitive and boring is the buildup of the formation to that “static” point where all the crusader upgrades have been purchased when all that is needed is to level up the main DPS crusader level(s).

Simple Change

  • Let players start at 10% progress of the previous Highest Area Complete (HAC) on their next run of a given campaign objective. E.g. If I just did a run to level 159 then the next run i get to starts at level 15.
  • On the new run, a player can start with the same amount of gold that they had at that point of the previous run. This can be a saved value or some kind of approximate formula that achieves the same result.
  • If the math is too complex or saving the info is too bulky, milestones can be established every 10 levels with the maximum starting level being set to 100. I.e. 10, 20, 30, … 100.

Harder Change

  • This suggestion is the same as the easy one with the difference being that the entire formation at the given “restart” level is saved. I.e. All crusaders recruited, levels, and upgrades. This means starting at that level will be an exact copy/paste duplicate of what they had at that level in the previous run.
  • Players will need the opportunity to override the minimum level feature in the event that they wish to experiment with a different formation than was used in a previous run. This would not be needed with the simple change.

Other Suggestions

  • Since most of the objectives in the campaigns are “one-time” only, this change can be applied only to Free Play. By the time a person gets to free play, they know how to do it blindfolded and building up the formation becomes monotonous, boring, and tiresome. Saving them from this will not adversely impact the overall need for grinding and paying their dues in order to advance the game.
  • This ability can cost a “fair” number of rubies — one time payment only please. A side-effect of doing this might be to reduce the the number of checkpoints needed since brand new players cannot afford it right away. I.e. You might be able to use 25, 50, 75, 100 as the checkpoint level values instead of increments of 10.

Topic: GemCraft - Chasing Shadows / Compass Fields

What is up with the field with the compasses? I have obtained the “secret compass achievement” already. Even so, there is so much prominence given to these fields on the map that I wonder whether there isn’t some other use for them? Maybe someone here knows something about it?

Topic: GemCraft - Chasing Shadows / Plan for upcoming Kongregate badges!

I definitely get the sense that there are two different types of comments being made here: those that buy the pouch and/or extra shadow cores (who seem to think everything is too easy) and those that have spent many hours grinding their way to even get to the gem of eternity. Since I have yet to see a pay to win badge myself, I would think that the suggestions are good as initially suggested. Another good suggestion is the impossible badge for all the Vxx battles – those are extreme and the same for everyone.

I did see a few comments comparing this version with previous ones. For those of us that, for whatever reasons, cannot pay for pouches/extras – this update is very different! “End game” now has many different meanings and are not comparable. Still a fun game though.

I just finished using Magi Alt 1 – it was really bad – too slow getting the attack up before Magi kills you. Prime was ok but Alt 2 was much more reliable.

Let’s start by picturing a scene from Harry Potter: Even when Draco’s Malfoy’s father bought the entire Slytherin Quidditch team Nimbus 2001s, they could not beat the raw talent of Harry Potter. Now picture Crabbe going up against Harry. In case you don’t remember, Crabbe ends up killing himself with his own spell. That is you!

Plus, I found some interesting things about you on the high scores, so I must call bullshit.

You may call BS on that highscore, aswell as skill books and career level. I honestly have no idea how they happened but it is quite annoying.

Coming to a court room near you some time in the future. “You’re honor, I honestly don’t know how those stolen items ended up there. I only used them because they were there already. Would have been a waste not to use them at that point. Right?”

Tech Lights Improvement

I am using the fertilizer check of the Tech Lights. I currently have everything max fertilized.  The light telling me that the fertilizer is ready stays ON.  While this may be technically true, it is pointless and should remain OFF.

Pet Mana no longer goes up

It's been almost a week now that my Pet's mana has remained at the same value despite having a fully leveled Pet and Pet Trainer at level 190. "When your pet is not sleeping, 95% chance to get +5 extra pet mana every 5 minutes". It's possible that this problem has been around longer because i was busy feeding it and did not notice.
