Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Monsters' Den Chronicles] Some feedback

For the knockback problem, I think a character should be able to take a step instead of an attack. It’s a logical possibility, and I prefer changing programs to be logical over finding a way around something that shouldn’t be a huge setback in the first place. Some of the monsters move during melee, after all.

Topic: Dream World / what is a looter?

Depends a bit on what your guild has, too. If there’s very few items there, only take what you want to wear and donate your old gear back. If they’ve got lots of gear, go ahead and take something midrange to sell when you need to buy something big, pay it back later.

I figured they were different races that had either conquered each other or allied together.

You ‘unequip’ them by getting a new one. While they might not be very good allies, they aren’t worse than nothing. Ignore them until you find the one you’re looking for.

A suggestion for Kongregate? Is there any way to make it so we could search a specific thread instead of searching all of Kongregate? I bet a lot of questions get posted over and over because it’s so hard to search. I’m trying to find out about high level spells, but there’s lots of games that have spells, and games come up first, and if I specify Dreamworld, it sends me to play the game instead of searching the threads… It’s an awfully bad search function.

I redo the quests for the areas I’m in – it doesn’t cost anything and you get some minor prize and exp for it. In fact, I just keep all the quests open and whenever they’re finished, I start them over. Mind Training, Daily Dreamer, and Extra Credit complete themselves in the normal course of exploring, and collect stuff I can do when I’m in the appropriate map.

For the ‘Possessed Bosses’ quest, you’re told you need to re-defeat the bosses you defeated before, which are now demon possessed. I’d assume that means the ones at the end of each ‘location’ set – the lakeville marsh had some kind of monster found after finishing level 5. How do I find those bosses now? Originally, after fighting my way through levels 1 through 5, a ‘seek’ button appeared on area 5 of the marsh and that took you to the boss. You finished level 5 by becoming level 6. How do I get that button to appear now that I’m beyond that?

While not in guild, I opened a demon gate with a key. Killed the demon a lot faster than the one the guild’s working on now, too.

a couple fairy dusts (fine with me, I use them) some coins, 3 gate keys (I had to drop 2 of them), armor and weapons (I sold), 2 enchant potions.

Topic: Dream World / No-Noob-Questions

I have a Demon Staff of Life +3 I use when doing physical attacks, and an Enchanted Star Staff I use when I’m casting spells. The Demon Staff gives me an attack that is 243 points higher than the Enchanted Staff, but if all I’m doing is slinging spells, that doesn’t matter. On the other hand, when I’m exploring to gain money and experience, I can kill most things with attack and not use up my Skill Points. The Demon Staff is great there. Fighting Mr. Boss Demon, all I use is maelstrom, so the Enchanted staff is my buddy.

You can access your inventory and change weapons anytime, so having both isn’t too much trouble. Until I want to carry around a sword (for guard) a gun (for aim), 2 staves, fairy dust, these Keys I keep getting from Santa, etc. I used to have an attack ring and a guild ring – when I ran out of Skill Points I’d put the guild ring on (to increace my max Skill Points), take the fairy dust, then change back to the attack ring and throw the next spell. My Skill Points would be more than my max, but that didn’t cause any problems. Eventually I had to give up the guild ring, I just can’t carry as much as I’d like.

Which of the bosses attacks is used seems to be random to me. Sometimes he uses his highest damage attack on the first round, sometimes (VERY rarely) I’ve lasted 10 rounds.

Topic: Dream World / Noob Question

When you go to the marsh area, Area 1 (which used to be labeled level 1) is now labeled (level 51). When you get to level 52, Area 2 will be labeled (level 52), but while you are still level 50, Area 2 will still be level 2. This change will keep going – I’m level 58 and Section 3 of Lakeville’s Sewers is now level 58, but Section 4 is level 9.

Confused me, too when I was in my early 50s.

Well, I’m level 58. I will probably die even if I heal myself, so I save my skill points for more maelstroms. He can do 150% of my HP in on go, so I don’t bother. Hard to believe I’ll someday have that many HP.

Topic: Dream World / Where did Santa go?

Yesterday I was assuming you’d only see him once ever, but today I’ve seen him many times. I also saw an elf, once, but I had an awful lot of money and so I put my money in the bank in hopes that the next time I saw one he’d offer me his potion for cheaper, but I haven’t seen him since.

Just out of curiosity, has anyone tried the ‘take by force’ option with santa? It just seemed too stupid to try, but I’m wondering what would happen.

Topic: Dream World / Problem plss help me

Yes, it means you can keep playing longer without resting every day. It’s not just to refill your energy today, but to give you more playing time every time you come here. I wish I got a time capsule. I keep getting keys, and they’re taking up inventory space because a gate’s open already.

Topic: Dream World / How to fight a demon

I started with a post to the guild wall, but needed more room.

You don’t have to be high level to help out when the guild has a demon gate open. Anyone who’s high enough level to access the demon gates can help. If you can’t kill the minor demons, wait until someone else does, but the boss demon accumulates damage from everyone who fights it. Even if you don’t do much damage, it’s easy to fight if you don’t mind dying a lot. And I do mean a lot.

Once you’ve filled your available inventory space with fairy dusts, put all your money in the bank – the 10% fee is a bargain compared to what you’d spend on healing. Once you’ve got no money in your pockets, she’ll heal you for free. Unlike normal exploring, you won’t be gaining coins every fight, so it’ll stay free.

Walk in, use your heaviest damage skill, and just keep using that skill over and over. There’s no point trying to heal, as sooner or later he’ll pull out his big damage and he can one-hit you. Just pound him until he kills you, jump in, and do it again. When you run out of skill points go to inventory and take your fairy dust – you can do this while fighting. Keep going until you run out of dust, if you have money buy more and go back again. I normally only stop when I need to earn money for the dusts, but today I’m exploring more because I want to go up a level. You don’t get experience for fighting the boss demon until he’s killed – then everyone who helped gets some.

It’s not hard, and it teaches you to have a more laid-back approach to dying – I usually get one to five rounds in per try, three hits does five hundred to a thousand damage, and I go in over and over. Plus, the rewards are great.

One should be able to deposit keys in the guild vault. Demon gate fighting is a guild thing, and I didn’t like having 2 of my slots filled with keys I wouldn’t be able to use in the foreseeable future. Either a ‘closet’ where one can stuff inventory not currently needed but not garbage either, or let it go in the guild vault for the gm to take when the guild is ready for that particular gate.

Rings should be ‘vaultable’ as well, – they’re a perfect example of something a higher level player might be getting rid of that one of their lower level allies would be grateful for. I hate throwing good stuff away, and I can’t sell it. Then again, maybe I should vote instead for rings, keys, and other useful items to be given a resale value if you don’t need it.

So you’re level 100 already, when the highest levelled user so far is only level 70-90?

Looks like you don’t get it.

looks like ure a flat out liar.

Um… when you say your regen heals you for 200 hp and you got aphoenix, do you mean your phoenix heals you for 200 hp? That would be normal. Means you two are talking about different things.

Quite likely. However, that doesn’t mean we can predict future “quasi-random” events such as events determined by a compter’s random number generation program by saying “well, yesterday I saw the beggar a lot, so today I’ll probably see the wise man several times.”

Claiming that the computer generated number isn’t really random because it’s based on a timestamp doesn’t help, because they usually use the millisecond and how exactly are you going to hit the button on just the millisecond you’re looking for? Even if you’re a robot with perfect timing, the time it takes to get from your keyboard to the server the game runs off of is changed by other people’s usage and other variables you can’t control.

Topic: Dream World / Ring-a-Ring-a-Roses...

Oooh, I found a fun little fact while fighting demons. If you have a guild ring and an attack ring and fairy dust, when you run out of SP, you go to the inventory page, Equip the guild ring, take your fairy dust, and immediately equip the attack ring again. You now have 25 more SP than normal, but can still get the damage bonus. It doesn’t take any extra time, either.

I just finished killing the Fire Gate demon by myself. Took me 2 days at level 55 and 56. Fun fun fun.

Now if I only could carry more stuff…

Actually, truely random events tend to come out like that. When people who played bridge professionally first changed from physical cards to randomly generated cards assigned by computer, they complained that they weren’t properly shuffled – there was much more tendancy to get many cards of one suit and few of another, where the old school shuffling had given a more even distribution between suits. Turns out that was because shuffling doesn’t give a truely random distribution unless you shuffle 13 (I think) times. They shuffled several times, and passed out cards that were fairly evenly distributed. When you really randomize, you tend to get runs of one thing several times in a row naturally.

My real life experience of this is working in a restaraunt. Aside from the ‘lunch rush’ and ‘basketball game just got out rush’, you had lulls and rushes within the times – people come in at random at the same time, then there’s randomly no one for a bit.

When people notice this, they tend to get themselves in trouble. Problem gamblers will notice they’ve been lucky a while, and bet more to take advantage, but it’s still random, the next die roll or lever pull is no more likely to win than when you’ve been losing a while. Keeping betting because you’ve lost a bunch and it has to change soon is also a losing stragegy – it’s still random, and the next one is just as likely to lose or be an insignificant win as the first time you tried. This is why casinos stay in business. Everyone’s got a system, and NONE OF THEM WORK!
