Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [The Grinns Tale] I beat floor 68, now what?

Is there a real chance that they’ll add more floors to the tower? Does anybody know how long it’s been since the last time they added more floors? It seems that they should add more, since floor 68 has no boss and is totally anti-climactic, but there are plenty of games on Kongregate that were never finished.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [The Grinns Tale] Mystbourne 5, Levels 64-68

I found that to beat Mystbourne 5, I had to do something that was not quite the same as what any of you guys suggest:
1. Have 3 knights with spiked armor 2 and regen 4, 1 cleric with haste 2, regen 4, and magic up 4, 1 archer with thermobolt 2, ricochet 2, and first attack 2, and 1 wizard with shock wave 2, chance up 2, and life steal 2.
2. Have every hero at level 42 with top-tier equipment (preferably refined).
3. The archer in back attacks the Faust. Meanwhile the cleric hastes the archer once and then repeatedly hastes herself. And the knights pretty much just drop dead like flies.
4. Use potions to shock the Faust and/or cure shock inflicted by it. Also use healing and revival potions in an attempt to slow the destruction of the knights.
5. When the Faust is dead, swap the wizard with the archer and begin hasting the wizard. And of course, have the wizard attack.
6. Pray that Ricochet 2 has made the health of the thermal spikeys uneven enough that one of them will outlive the others.
7. When only one monster is left alive (which will always be a thermal spikey), have the wizard stop attacking.
8. Now revive and heal everyone and haste a knight. Have the knight use Sacrifice 2 on himself, and if that’s not enough, also use healing potions. Keep hasting the knight until he can survive easily.
9. Optionally, use items to increase the wizard’s attack and the knight’s defense.
10. Haste the wizard until his speed is insane. The rule of thumb is to spend a full food bar on this.
11. Swap the archer with the cleric and wreck the monsters’ faces.
For the higher floors in the tower, it’s important to have 4 knights, 2 archers, 1 wizard, and 1 cleric. Sometimes you’ll need to change (in between rooms) which 6 heroes you are using, which should pretty much always include all.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [The Grinns Tale] My Happiness is stuck at 30

You mean I gotta buy decorations to raise my max happiness? How much crap do I gotta buy? Right now the only decorations I have are 3 stone patches.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [The Grinns Tale] My Happiness is stuck at 30

I had 28 happiness, and had a Grinn talk to the Fuzzlehorn. It went up to 30, instead of 31 like it should have, and has been stuck at 30 ever since.

When this started, at first having a Grinn talk to the Fuzzlehorn or other Grinns would produce happiness balloons that just wouldn’t do anything because the counter was stuck. But now they can’t produce happiness balloons anymore.

So, I can never unlock the Salon.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [The Grinns Tale] Socks

What are you guys talking about? I have hundreds of socks that I’ll never use, because I keep getting them way faster than I can possibly use them. I have never once done a dedicated run for them. I think I mainly get them from the Grinnfinite Dungeon.

Only the last 5 or so floors in main tower, and Mystbourne 5 are overbalanced. They are perfectly doable with a reasonable amount of non-pramin potions (think shock). I’d hardly call the balancing rediculous.

I don’t know if any levels really need to be changed, but the difficulty is certainly vastly understated in some of the side dungeons. For example, Halvarian Peak 2 is “level 29”, but is harder than level 40 in the tower. Ironbound’s difficulty is also vastly understated, except for Ironbound 1, which is only slightly understated. Mystbourne 1 is also at least somewhat understated as “level 37”, when it is actually harder than level 40 in the tower. And come to think of it, there’s an unusual sharp spike in difficulty at floor 22 (if I remember correctly). Previous floors can be beaten on the first try without using any potions, but floor 22 requires using either lots of effect potions or a very particular set of jobs and skills. (If I remember right, it was a Dragoon with spiked armor and regen, and 2 clerics with heal and magic up.)

What this game REALLY needs is a less clunky combat interface. Having to do so much dragging is really hard on my wrist. There should be hotkeys for the active heroes, the backup heroes, and all the monsters, so that I can just press 2 hotkeys instead of dragging.

Order is random within a block.

I’m pretty sure it depends on your job levels, or at least, it depends on how many characters you have at capped levels in a particular job.

Then they should add an option to disable the confirmation box.

Originally posted by Laconfire:

Also there is the “dishoborable” ways to automate your farming process, which is saving you RL time and makes the farming process faster, because the pc can perform the actions faster than you. The fastest i know of is 20k metal per hour, but this information is some days old and may be outdated. I wont tell you who is doing this or how to do this, nut im pretty sure if you ask in chat someone will at least give you a usefull keyword.

“I won’t tell you how” is the kind of crap you say if you are a liar making up stuff that doesn’t exist. I don’t believe that this “dishoborable” method exists.

It’s really annoying when someone posts a spoiler to a puzzle game. You should add feature to allow people to flag comments for being spoilers, which would be separate from regular flagging, and would be reported to the developer, so that he can decide whether to delete the comment. Developers should also have the ability to delete any comments on their games for any reason, and to block any particular user from posting comments on their games, if they don’t have this already (I never uploaded a game, so I wouldn’t know.)

I have a lot of games in my Favorites, because every time I play game and like it enough to play it again, I add it. It would be nice if there was a useful way to sort them, but there is not. The “Newest” sort method would be useful if it sorted based on how long a game has been in my Favorites, but it does not. It sorts by upload date. “Highest rating” and “Most played” would still be useless even if it used only my stats and not the stats for the whole site.

It would be much more useful to sort favorite games by “Alphabetical”, “Most recently added to Favorites”, and “Most recently played”. “Most recently added to Favorites” should have a way to change the order, so you don’t have to remove a game and put it back in just to change the order. “Most recently played” should give you the option to disable it when other people look at your favorites, so that they can’t see which of your favorites you have been playing the most. (There should also be an option to hide your Favorites without making your entire profile page private. And currently, Badges are visible to everyone even if you make your profile private. There needs to be a way to hide your badges.)
