Topic: Bush Whacker 2 / Pick random friends?

actually, I do use it for inviting friends to events (like Nate’s Band-aid station)- first I set my choice to “most recently logged in”, and grab 50, and then I do the 50 random’s. The next day, depending on how many people accepted, I might select the most recent 24, then hit random for the other 26 choices…

Topic: Bush Whacker 2 / Need some friends

Feel free to add me, if you really need some. I’m usually on at least once a day, but I have been known to disappear for 3-4 months at a time… but with 250 friends possible, and only 100 friend whacks a week, it won’t hurt you to have a couple inactives…

But really, the best way to get friends is to just go down the chat listing, adding friends…

apartment quest was NOT listed under “available quests” from town crier. It was same quest as yesterday, so I wouldn’t have seen a (!), but it was wierd.
After I turned in quest, town crier did not give it a cooldown either.

Topic: Curio Quest / What happened to Heroes and Clash of Dragon?

From what I understand, Legacy of Heroes never had the fan base, and Clash of Dragon’s fan base dwindled to the point it was “no longer economical” to run them. So 5pg decided to cancel them, and devote the resources to new games, such as Curio Quest. Since they gave you an option to recover some of the Premium Currency you purchased by giving you Premium Currency in your choice of some of their other games (including Curio Quest), it seems unlikely they’ll re-introduce them, but if they did, you’ld probably be starting at level 1 again.
I am told they posted all the Clash quest lore in the 5pg forum pages, but I haven’t gotten around to checking that.

Topic: Curio Quest / Guide to Curio Quest - From starting the game to dominating wars

much like alex, I am curious about capturing curios. Your description earlier on zones says that you can capture them only on question mark zones. So I am wasting my time resetting zone 1, for example, in the hopes that I might capture one of Silj’s pets, for example? the only reason to reset is to fight the boss again, and get more materials?
Also, I am in awe and pleasantly surprised to learn it was possible for you to fight over 200 battles, have the top score, and still average 91 exp per fight won. I have been unable to fight opponents whose total scores would average me 75 pts per win, much less win against them. I guess when you get to the top 50, the win/loss point spread finally makes sense.
As a suggestion, rather than to rate the various Tier 8, 9, etc curios, It might be better to simply list the ones you feel are the top 3, for each element.

Topic: Curio Quest / Shop question

I’ve been playing about 20 days- the cash shop has never “recycled”, but every 3-4 days, they advertise a new/different 4-star legendary, and I’ve noticed the premium items have changed. Whether they change even more often than that, I haven’t noticed.
As a free player, I don’t even look at the boosts shop- I figure I’ll need several (5+) 3/4 stars before I worry about boosting them, and I have none at the moment.
To quickly check for changes, rather than scrolling, hit the “1” button, to show you the odds for each item.

Topic: Curio Quest / bug

not sure how repeatable it is.
my Cocon was almost out of hit points, and his opponent was down to 12. I threw an “earthshell” (with thorns..), and missed. Opponent hit my Cocon and knocked him out, but the thorns also knocked my OPPONENT out. My next curio popped out, but my opponents curio stayed in group. It wasn’t a visual bug, my current curio could not fire any attacks, and had to use “defend”- then the opponent popped out to fight.

Topic: Curio Quest / ??????

Seems as likely an explanation as any. After I read your post, I checked my journal. Of my 11 evolved curios, only 5 (Blue, Macrobe, Hydragon, Boone, and Araknice) show up with the stage 2 evolved form visible in my journal. The others (Nightmaroot, Wormseed, R.E.B.O.T., Vultaire, Mantank and Penstripe) do not. I would quickly evolve Clawsphorus to test (not sure I’ve fought a stage 2, have definitely fought stage 3 Claws), but my machine is in cooldown.

While were on the subject of strange things, the website forum I found says they adjusted the Hydragon last week http://mobile.curioquestgame.com/forums/forum/main-category/main-forum/26100-adjusting-to-the-power-curve but my Hydragon’s Harpoon still hits his current opponent [although it does cost 2 mana], not a back-up character. Is the forum mistaken, or (shudder), are they balancing the PC version of the game different than the mobile version?

Edit- Nope, not having fought them is NOT the reason they are not showing up in journal. Recently fought a level 14 R.E.B.O.T. in arena, so it had to have been stage 2 or 3. Other members were stage 2, so probably isn’t stage 3. And Journal still does not show evolved form, even after closing and restarting computer.

Topic: Curio Quest / some questions on mechanics

okay, I’ve been playing a while, and I have some mechanics question-
First, what adjustments are made to your base attack accuracy? Luck? level difference? I ask because I had seen far too many 90+ attacks fail in a row, but what clinched it was when I confirmed R.E.B.O.T. missing with electrocute (a 100% accuracy attack)
PVP Duels- how are opponents chosen, and do we really need these wieghted gains? I am not trying for a top spot, I just want to reach SOMEWHERE. My recent attempt is an example— I am fighting with 3 rank 2’s, level 16-18.
I win my first 4 fights, fighting opponents ranked at 655, 739, 655 (yes, same guy), 509. In the 3 fights, none have a curio ranked higher than 7, and only one curio has been evolved to second tier. My 4th fight is actually a decent one, vs a rank 509, 2 of his are better than mine (19 and 21), I squeek by on elements.
My 5th fight is against a rank 398, and he soundly trounces me (not sure what ELSE he had, but was killed by a rank 26 third tier). THen I get a fight with a rank 581, and he’s the strongest yet (legendary rank 36 third tier).
So after 6 fights, I end up at rank 644 (I am guessing based on my 124 points). And yes, thats around 10 ranks away from the guy with a level 6 blue, and two level 5’s, all first tier. Is it simply a matter of not enough people dueling, that the tough fights and easy fights are practically the same rank opponents?

Topic: Bush Whacker 2 / Favorite Pet

For the look of them, I like the parrot and the monkey. i don’t have any of the premiums, but the gelatinous cube looks like something it would be fun to drag around.
If you mean pets I USE, I pretty much always use “extra puzzle pieces”, unless I’m doing a special mission which doesn’t drop puzzle pieces- then I drop all my puzzle widgets, and switch to “extra quest items”. (I used to use a level 40 griffon for puzzles, but been working on the rhino lately- at 31, he’s still not quite as good, but eventually he’ll pass the griffon. I didn’t start using him until log after my griffon had maxed, when the pet treats started up. My find quest pieces griffon is only level 23)

Topic: Asterix & Friends / bad aspects

only level 17, after 20 some hours… Food is not really the problem, for me- its Sesterces. (somewhere around level 10, I actually started using food to restore health, to get rid of it..) I’ve looked at some of the other players stats, and I don’t know how they’ve managed to earn 100K+ of sesterces by level 30.- Spend them, yep, could easily do that, unlocking buildings/levels. hopefully, when I finally manage to scrape up the 2400 for fish market things will be better (yes, I know it unlocked at level 16. I barely managed to build blacksmith’s hut by level 15, 2 levels late 300 every 2 hours, doesn’t build very fast, when you can’t log on 8-12 times around the clock)

Topic: Bush Whacker 2 / Feedback and Bug Reports

Probably a symptom of my poor screen resolution, but…. Just before you start final quest, in Kaines ghost story, you walk to top of screen. But this adjusted the field downwards, so 1/3 of it was off screen. So I could no longer exit field. teleporting to town and back fixed the issue.

Topic: Reckless Ruckus / Please Fix the Tower Clear Bug

just looking at it, from a players perspective, it’s basically a coding error. Normally, each stage has 3 groups of opponents (rounds, not to be confused with the up to 30 rounds against each group). So the system resolves the fight, and gives you the results. 30 seconds later, instead of moving to the next stage, it moves to the second round. since the opponents have already been beat, you get the message “battle system is cooling down, please be patient”, and it waits another 30 seconds. Now its at round 3, and the opponents are still dead, so message “battle system is cooling down, please be patient” again appears, and its restarts it’s 30 second timer. Finally, it moves on to the next stage, and completely resolves the fight. so the first 2 stages take 90 seconds, and all 50 take 73.5 minutes
Edit:
Unless I’ve totally misunderstood, and the bug you’re talking about is the fact I can’t clear the tower while offline…

Topic: Legacy of a Thousand Suns / The best officer in the game

Neat, actual discussion. Avigdor hits harder than Plorska for me, but then I’ve been lax in making orange madman logs. Or perhaps I’m running against that pesky max damage limit for Plorska, mentioned in Zoywiki.
I can only use myself for comparison. I’ve got 155 officers, my best ships damage is rated around 45k (at plus 300% or so), so base ship damage of about 11k
So lets do some math concerning the procs for these two (we’ll ignore the officer stat difference, and consider Avigodors personal extra damage of 1k to 10k per point of E/S/H, depending on officers and ship, as trivial)
So on to the math- basing Avigdor on zoywiki listed formula, 80 officers, and 400 coffees (coffees are easily maxed), he procs for 1.8 Million, at a rate of 12.5%, so adds an additional 225k damage per 20 hit. However, he also increases ship power, so using a base power of 10k, he adds 5k damage, multiply that by 20, and his total increase per 20 hit is 225k + 100k= 325k damage
Plorska has bonuses for Madman’s logs and certain crew. Kakophages are only 11/11, and Quarinteed Rylattu are worse, at 11/8, so they aren’t in any of my ships- but we’ll assume you are using 30 of them. Orange Madman’s Logs are much harder to get than coffees (constructed from on hit drops from a WR), but we’ll max those also. We’ll also ignore the cap of 18% of base damage, even though that might be a problem if you’re using Kakophages in your ships…
We plug in Zoywiki’s formula, and we get a proc of 2.7 M. Since it’s listed as 10% per 20, that means you get an extra 270k per 20 hit. While this is certainly more than the 225K we figured for Avigdor’s proc, it 55k per hit LESS than Avigdor’s total damage with 80 officers.
Edit: Argh, rookie mistake- LoTS uses ship POWER, DoTD uses legion DAMAGE. 5k ship power is 25k damage per point, or 500k per 20 hit… so Avigdor does 725k per 20 hit versus Health inspector Plorska’s 270k, almost TRIPLE the damage with a 10k base ship- even a 5k base ship would be 475k to 270k…

fix space explorations- its annoying to have to wait 3 minutes to be told “server error”… I am guessing the next ship is above my level, and for some reason you don’t want me fighting (and probably losing) against it? seems odd, when you’ve got no problem tossing large ships at me during regular missions…
nope, thats not it- gained a level, still can’t do explorations… 2:50 seconds after launch, when I should be fighting somthing (hopefully, for that 2nd battery for Mary), I still get the dreaded “server error” pop-up, and have to refresh.

Topic: Legacy of a Thousand Suns / The best officer in the game

I was surprised how few premium officers are in LoTS. While in my opinion, Jessica is BETTER than Avigdor, she’s crew.. Zoywiki only lists 4 Premium Officers- Avigdor, Ace Flashheart, Admiral Boone, and Ocean Mistress Synactha. I would probably rank them

Avigdor (best base stats, damage is not limited by what fits in ship, 50% bonus is nice)
Boone (although, the way we keep getting more/better weapons in ships, he might go up to first)
Ace (rated lower than Boone because only 1/3 pt for extra utilities, and Boone is 5/3- but there are currently a LOT more utilities, and he isn’t tied to ships equipment for damage)
Synactha (someone has to be bottom)
