Granted. But the 5* Winmillion sucks just as much as the 4* one.

I wish for a pet Kat.

Topic: Spiral Knights / Weapon Suggestions

I would recommend upgrading the Divine Avenger first if you’ve already reached Firestorm Citadel capability; you’ll be able to knock out slags faster. When you have the time to, getting either the Barbarous Thorn Blade or Final Flourish line would be recommended to have a more complete set.

If you’re still near the Jelly Palace capability, then upgrading your Acheron or Gran Faust is recommended so that you can squash jellies faster. Which will be your taste; personally, for Jelly Palace I’ve usually carried Gran Faust and Fang of Vog, leaning towards those because of their wide sweeps and large damage capabilities; however, Acheron isn’t a wrong choice if you lean towards the faster swords.

If you’re already a fan of the slow but wide attacks of the Divine Avenger, then you might not even need another elemental sword. If you like the faster attacks of a brandish line, then start considering your favorite status to inflict. Combusters are nice for their burning effect, but choosing a Glacius or even Voltedge for example wouldn’t be wrong. Keep in mind that Voltedge requires some more effort in the creation process.

If you do like burning enemies, and you’ve ever favored the spinning charge from any of the caliber lines, then Fang of Vog’s charge does that; it can burn you, but if you can keep yourself from losing HP from hits, then it’s nice for speeding through certain levels (Jelly Palace included).

But anyhow, if it were me, I’d lean towards finishing the Divine Avenger, then either upgrading the Gran Faust or building up a Final Flourish (Or Barbarous Thorn Blade). If you use DA and GF, because of the similarity of their swings, you’ll get used to both at the same time.

I’d imagine it’d be very difficult to post a picture of an invisible trojan :P

I would recommend reporting the bug ingame, because the devs don’t use this forum :P

Topic: Spiral Knights / Swordsmen, what armor/sword should I get?

I would recommend advancing your Wolver into either Skolver or Vog.

And then, advancing your brandish into either a Nightblade or any of its other lines.

How far did you go to complete the initial mission? I think it only saves after you complete that mission, I think.

Topic: Spiral Knights / Stuck on 70% DL FIX!!!

Originally posted by SevenSka:

Hey,
so I noticed that myself and a lot of others are stuck with this problem. I was stuck on 70% for about 2 days until I found a fix that MAY work for everyone, but definitely worked for me. First of all you will need Spiral Knights on Steam and download the update there, for some reason the update downloads perfectly on Steam. Next you will need to go to the following folders in your computer.

Spiral Knights Kongregate Folder:
"Username">AppData>LocalLow>spiral>rsrc
&
Spiral Knights Steam Folder:
Program Files>Steam>steamapps>common>spiral knights>rsrc

Now that you’ve DOWNLOADED the update on Steam and opened both folders copy the JAVA contents of the STEAM rsrc folder to the >LocalLow>spiral>rsrc folder.

The JAVA contents should include 9 files.

Then make sure you refresh your browser and the update should load MUCH faster or be already done.

If you have any troubles finding folders or feedback if this worked please reply or pm me any time.

I’m a Kong and Client user, so I’ll make a note of this here, if it helps any.
If you can download and run Spiral on either Kong or Client, then the other will work perfectly fine. Not sure if this is the case here though, but keep that in mind; if you have the Client, run it, and then try running Kong.

guys when u do a shadow lair, do u get the recipe of the item?, or the item itself?

You get neither. You get a material that is specific to the place.

At the end, you will gain access to the Sanctuary Crafting machine. The machine has prerecorded recipes, similar to the Krogmo’s machine.

So for UGWW, you will get a Nightmare Mane after completion, and then access to the Sanc Machine.
-
Now, let’s wipe the slate clean, and assume you are going for…

Snarbolax Set. You have no SL materials on hand, but all other materials are in your possession.
If you complete UFSC, you will gain 1 Maiden’s Tear, and then access to the Sanc Machine. You can try to craft a Snarb, but it won’t let you because you need a Nightmare Mane. However, because you have a Maiden’s Tear, you can craft any of the pieces that require a Maiden’s Tear

Wipe our chat slate once more, and assume you are going for…
Snarbolax Set. You have 1 Nightmare Mane, and all other materials in possession. If you complete UGWW, you will gain 1 Nightmare Mane, and then access to the Sanc Machine. You attempt to craft Snarb; you can craft both pieces, since you have 2 Nightmare Manes, and the other items required.

When I say “other items required”, I do mean the materials, and the required pre-set (If you’re aiming for Snarby, that would be heated 10 Ash Tail, etc).

Does the above answer your question?

I got CH but the real deal is the DA is better than WRH so OCH is kinda effing useless(wow i realized i wasted 60kreds). Also OCH is really hard and u need shadow guns to do it cuz OCH lags like crazy and if u use a sword ur gona get pwned by the hundreds of constructs and gremlins that are found there. I’d love to participate in ur ‘event’ BUT i already have done it once and i dont need the mask so yeah……sorry X_X

Comparing DA and the Hammer is like comparing the DA to GF. They’ve both got totally different uses. O_o
You don’t need a shadow gun; I personally use a Polaris and FF the whole way.

The other thing is that it partially isn’t about the mat itself. It’s the fact that I’m offering my ability to carry someone through a Shadow Lair that is worth giving up the remainder value though.

Yeah i know that but u no one will buy a nightmare mane for 30k or 20k will they?

They would if the other end of the bargain gets them a veteran of Shadow Lairs on their expedition :D

Will you accept the material at the end as payment? It’s the rough equiv of a key.

Nightmare mane aint equal to 450ce……it just costs about 15kcr 450ce is about 37k if 100ce is 8.4k ._.

Says what? The AH?
In that case, I’ll just buy off every Nightmare Mane under 37k, and then the market price for Nightmare Mane becomes 37k.
Awesome! :D

Another one who thinks it’s THAT easy… =P

You’re aware that as soon as something like that starts, everyone will start selling all of theirs? (I’m 100% sure there would be at least 15 more from my inventory =P) And I know at least 10 people who just wait for prices to rise like that to sell theirs too…

One does not simply make the price go up wink wink

Then I’ll just buy them up. Perhaps you’re right; maybe my 4 million crowns can’t make the price reach 37k. But I do think it’ll make an awesomely nice dent in the market, and make it increase quite a bit ;)

I have full Snarby, Vog etc, and shields for all sets of damages.
I have traversed Shadow Lairs many times. My prestige is 48k and rising.
My IGN is UThief.

The way you’re wording it is that we, the invited, don’t need to pay for our portion of the key. In which case, I would be glad to join in and aid your Shadow Lair expedition.

Also, which one are you doing? What day and time is it?

Topic: Spiral Knights / day and night

Originally posted by Addison0:

Why add features? If it’s a purely cosmetic thing, people in different timezones can have zero confusions. If you give it features, things get annoying because of the timezone thing.

Each update should be made well. While it isn’t necessary to add in features to cosmetics, it kills two birds with one stone.

It doesn’t necessarily have to be timezone related either. It could be that every level is randomly rolled for night or day.

On another note, speaking of Slumber; night would be a nice time where the Sleep status could see some use. Just a thought.

Topic: Spiral Knights / day and night

That would make things confusing for people in timezones. It could be day for me and night for someone else.

Now another idea would be to make it so that it follows one timezone. Either that or make it switch day and night every certain number of hours. Such as every 6 hours it switches between day or night. By doing that, it’s possible for people to encounter day and night in a single day.

With the addition of day or night certain monsters could appear more often or gain certain abilities.

For example, during the night some of these effects could be in place:

Freeze lasts slightly longer
Fire may deal less slightly less damage
Shadow monsters receive a bonus of either offense or/and defense
Element monsters receive a negative bonus of either offense or/and defense
Chroma are totally invisible, whereas during the day, their outlines show
Certain shadow monsters can cloak similar to Chroma normal cloak
etc etc.

Certain levels being accessible only during certain times.

The downside is, the clockworks aren’t based on day or night because the clockworks are underground. You’d have to fidget with the storyline a little, and then something could be possible in that case.

“The clockworks mimic the time of day above”

Or something like that

Because the point in wearing armor isn’t that you’re invincible, but to minimize damage?
There’s no point in wearing armor if your weapons don’t do anything to the enemies, because if you can’t kill enemies, then there’s no point in staying alive. (Just drop dead, and let your team mates hit the party buttons and elevators)

Topic: Spiral Knights / Bombs 'n' Swords And now also guns!

Originally posted by Ernest1998:

nah. there is not a “best sword” and if there must be one I admit it is a Levi.
Cuz it is simply useful in all circumstances, especially in bouncing monsters to kill your teammates.
GF simply can’t beat undead and fiends…
DA is useless against kats, and suck vs gremlins. They can still manage the beast though

DA isn’t useless against Kats, btw. They do solid damage each strike.
Although I can concur that GF can’t take out undeads or fiends and that DA doesn’t help with gremlins, you likely won’t pair them up in that manner.

What we’re assuming is that a person picks a sword, and uses it against everything. But that’s not true. If that were true, the Levi would be the best. But because we have at least 2 slots for weapons, and the ability to swap to others off-mission, we can pick and choose what’s best for each level.

So instead of getting Levi, just get the swords appropriate for the mission.

Now, you might say “Well, then it’s the most useful first pick 5* sword; because you can get it as your first 5* sword to have the capability to kill everything equally, and use it to get the other swords as well.”
But my response to that is, “This is a co-op game. Get a DA, GF, FF, BTB, FoV or something that you’ll actually use endgame. And if there’s something you can’t cover, have your team mates cover for you until you get the appropriate swords.”

Topic: Spiral Knights / Swords whit snarbolax set

You don’t have to have 5* gear. You can hire a team to carry you through if it’s too difficult with your current equipment. As long as you have the required materials (Ashtail, etc etc), you can craft it.

There are various peoples and teams that are willing to carry a person through the Shadow Lairs. I’m one of those people, but I still pay for my fee. If you want, search the forums. You’ll find quite a handful of people that can form your Shadow Lair team, with or without payment.
