Can anybody please explain what’s happening?

Is that the number of clicks for the current game? Are you aligned with Dwarf? Is that 2.7 million clicks, not 2.7 thousand?

Topic: Realm Grinder / (Bronze) autocast stratagies

That’s a laughably bad way of casting spells. why_amihere already covered it, so I’m not going to rehash it, but you are being horribly inefficient by not stacking your spells all at once. Your mana regen is never “wasted” as long as your bar isn’t full, and your mana boosting spells set on bronze.

Topic: Realm Grinder / Is Goblin Greed worth it?

> without being forced into a Neutral alliance

Huh? The builds that use LS are either Merc, in which case Neutral is usually the strongest option anyway, and Research, where the only viable late game affiliations are all Neutral.

You can do Undead 2 Artifact and Drow 2 at the same time to make the grinding less painful; just spend ~10 days offline as Drow.

Topic: Realm Grinder / Something that I've found kind of annoying (trophy-wise)...

Eh, the only thing that annoys me about obscene requirements on trophies is that there are boosts that scale based on your % of completed trophies. Meaning that anytime new trophies are released you take a random production hit. I’d rather they all just be converted to flat scaling, with diminishing returns on the higher end.

Topic: Realm Grinder / ARTIFACTS - v1.5.46.0 Full Patch Notes

Jesus, the amount of obnoxious requirements among these artifacts is strong. It takes about 4 days of running Moon Blessing to get enough clicks for a 1% chance on the Fossilized Rodent. So some of these will take days of grinding, on top of the frustration that comes from having to excavate low% artifacts.

Guess I’ll just rush the two upgrade-tied artifacts and keep the rest on the backburner for later.

Topic: Realm Grinder / Over Powering Mercenaries

I can’t parse the OP at all. He’s saying Mercs are overpowered, and because of that wants to give them a ridiculous buff?

Topic: Realm Grinder / Upgrade Enhance Request

Probably complaining about the fact that Underworld Diplomacy unlocks two additional types of faction coins (Dwarf/Drow), so you get less coins for each individual faction overall.

I mean, at that point, nobody really cares about the natural coin find rate. Just excavate.

Topic: Realm Grinder / NU elves rush (R19+) - best reseachers in e69-e92 range.

The usual progression I’ve always seen is Fairy for early research, elves immediately after, then goblins to carry you the rest of the way up till you hit the neutral researches.

… you have a racial spell that hits the lowest producing buildings, and you’re focusing on building up one? Yeah, I see where the problem is.

Just reincarnate and get it when you have enough gems to reincarnate on your next run.

UniqTitans got me through it in one day. Just switch out the 400 researches for other stuff.

Topic: Realm Grinder / grand balance was kill

… few hours with Elf bloodline? Any decent rush build gets you straight to research in less than an hour. You’re just wasting time at that point.

It just me that has never found moonshine very good? To be fair, by the time I’m using it, I never have close to 300k clicks. You could be at research by then..

There are a couple things to consider, like do you have all elf challenges completed? Did you accidently click a wrong upgrade? Is your fairy playtime really low? Around 300k clicks isn’t hard to get if you just autocast MB and use the elf bloodline for a few hours. 300k is just a rounded number and is the median between impatience and progression :) moonshine would still be stronger than LF with 200k or even just 100k clicks.

Like the other poster said, if Moonshine takes you more than ~20-30 minutes to jump straight to research you’re doing it wrong.

Topic: Realm Grinder / I kinda feel like No Recruiting needs a buff...

Putting aside any numerical issues, my biggest problem is that the reward for proving you no longer need to use Mercs on a run… is a boost to Merc production. Yeah.

Topic: Realm Grinder / Neutral challenges

Titan 2 is any amount over 80. Used an autoclicker for it. Make sure you fufill the other requirements (R9+, Titan Bloodline)

Titan 3 is insanely easy; if you’re at R25 it takes maybe half an hour of autocasting LS at a high gem count.

Working on Titan 4 atm, 1/121 odds does not make me a happy camper.

Topic: Realm Grinder / Possible Lightning Forge update?

You’re forgetting the Harlequin bonus for having a Faceless upgrade. The multiplicative effect means that it’s usually (but not always) better than Bardic.

Topic: Realm Grinder / Goblin's Greed or Combo Strike Better?

If you’re doing short runs on low reincarnation, both drow and goblins are awful. So, the answer is neither.

Topic: Tap Adventure / What you want to improve in this game? [created by developers]

1. Option to turn off the cut-in screen when you hire/upgrade a hero.
2. Remove the popup when you “pass a friend” that completely halts progress. It’s unnecessary and insanely annoying.
3. Consolidate all hero HP upgrades into one global hero HP upgrade so you don’t need to regularly scroll through 5+ heroes and level their hp individually.

Topic: Holyday City / PL 31 to 32 new city or not?

Yup, never reset, ever. Not worth it till you stack up maybe 5 levels at once, or they release some new feature at those ranks. The Port/Paradox levels you lose outweighs the x3 multipliers by far.

On a similar note, what’s the best way to farm tickets? Does it scale with level, or should I just sit on any level that I can oneshot?
